On May 28, I started focusing on 3 main goals: C (calories within limits), A (alcohol at a lower level--trying to reduce), B (bedtime early enough to get at least 6 hours of sleep). To visualize, I made a calendar and rewarded myself with a gold star for each goal I made for the past 34 days. In the interest of accountability, the results are in, and they are not pretty for the most part, but they highlight two main things. First, weekends are worse. Second, my focus on an earlier bedtime actually worked.
C - 44%, gold star on 0 (yes, zero) weekend days
A - 56%, gold star on 2 weekend days
B - 94%, gold star on 32 of 34 days, with only 1 of the remaining 2 on a weekend
Obviously, for those percentages, I had other days when I did not make my goal, and the primary day, no surprise, is Friday. I am starting July with the same calendar to see if I can improve. I sure left a lot of room for improvement.
