Weekly get myself motivated list

Monday, April 29, 2013

I've been thinking about how to motivate myself to move forward on several fronts.

Since I'm a person who does well having a check list, I thought I'd create one each Monday and post it here.

So, for this week:

Track all foods eaten (Monday through Friday)
At least 250 minutes of fitness
Try out new strength training apparatus hubby bought (if he gets it put together)

Read two chapters of Excel training book and finish two online lessons

Finish first edit of 2012 Nano novel
Complete at least half of knitted purse

List 10 items on ebay
Start training puppy on leash (she hates the leash!)

The purses I'm knitting and the ebay sales $$ will all go into a vacation fund for this summer. I won't be able to make enough to cover a whole vacation, but at least it helps.

Okay, that's doable. My plan is to check in on Sunday mornings to check what's done off the list.

    Good for you, I would be lost anymore without my list, they really do help you keep on track with your goals as well as daily chores. Wishing all good things for you on your journey.

    I like making lists too. I like the way you divided things into different categories.

    I like your todo list, it sound so doable and accomplishes a lot!

I decided this week I need something to keep my hands busy so I bought a pretty piece of material and am going to make another quilt to replace the shaggy one that is so worn it's got holes in it. Today I'm going to get the batting so I can start it. Time to get this project underway!
