Another Monday!

Monday, January 14, 2013

This weekend was nice, and I want to carry the positive feelings, positive energy from the weekend into my work week!
Friday was a rough day in the office, and I don't want to go back to that mental state again! I was so frustrated and tired by the end of the day, that I just left as soon as I could without even bothering to straighten up my desk... I am pretty sure that when I get to the office, every last bit of my work-space will be covered with papers. And not in neat piles, ready to be tackled, but a veritable mess emoticon I hate messes! And I know that I dread Mondays much more when I have to sort through a disorganized desk before I can accomplish anything at work. Why do I do this to myself? I let my stress rule me on Friday. I could have taken a few minutes (probably 10 or less) at the end of the day on Friday to put things in order, but I was not willing to spend an extra second in that space... And it will definitely take longer to straighten out this morning than it would have on Friday because I will need to look at everything a bit more carefully since none of it is fresh in my mind after a weekend away.
One of my January goals was to leave my cleared every Friday... And I haven't done a goals progress report yet this month, so I guess it is time!

January Goals:

1. I will track my food daily! - So far I have kept up with tracking food - although, not always tracking it immediately.
1a. I will drink at least 8 glasses of water daily! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon 4 years ago it was hard for me to choke down this much water, but it became a relatively solid habit. Unfortunately I let the good habit slip in November and was back to forcing the water through December. Now it is finally getting easier again, and I am drinking my water faithfully!
1b. I will eat at least 7 servings of fruits and veggies each day! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

2. I will track my fitness daily! emoticon So far, so good!
2a. I will walk/jog at least 75 miles! emoticon 27.6 / 75 miles so far!
2b. I will log 2000 fitness minutes! 757 / 2000 so far... emoticon I had hoped to be at 1000 by the 15th, so we'll see how many minutes I manage to squeeze in to the next two days!

3. I will add my calories burned to the January Calorie Torch challenge thread daily! Total through yesterday is 7,167!

4. I will earn 3000 sparkpoints! So far I am at 1178 for the month of January.

5. I will leave my office desk completely cleared every Friday! My office was in perfect order when I left on Friday 1/4... not so good on Friday 1/11. emoticon Actually, the dread of facing the mess left on my desk today was what prompted this little progress report!

6. I will progress report in my blog! Maybe I should have added a time frame for this goal - first progress report at the half-way point was not what I had in mind!

7. My target weight for January 31 is 228 (this would be an 8 lb loss for the month)! Weighed in yesterday at 334, 2 lbs lost so far...

My first week of January was great! emoticon Second week, not quite as great, but still good. emoticon I am going to aim for better than great this week - how does emoticon sound?

    Sounds like you're doing great! You've got a plan, so that is a great start! I have decided that we do the best we can with where we are, and on Friday, you just couldn't face that desk! And that is ok! You will do what you can and try to better next time. That is all we can ask of ourselves!
