Some Things I Need to Do

Sunday, August 18, 2013

Reading others' blogs lately has given me some great ideas. I need to read more blogs to get these ideas and to remind myself that I am not alone in this fight. I need to work on my following through with these ideas.

I must remind myself that I am strong, active, beautiful and competent. I will strive to improve myself and I will succeed at it. I am worthy of this success. I will smile more. I want to be happier and by smiling more, I will remember to be happy. And smiles are contagious.

I will give myself a challenge each day. Just one to start with - I will add more if I feel that I need to or feel that I can handle more. I will post this challenge prominently to make myself more likely to do it.

Today I am going to challenge myself to limit my computer time. Some days, I get involved with it and realize afterwards that I've spent way too much time on it. Sitting does not get things done and it doesn't use a lot of calories.

Now that I think about this, I am going to have this be a challenge all week. My timer is coming out again and will be set. I will see how many things I can time this week. It will give me a better idea of where my time goes. I want to make the most of each day.

    Oh NO, Patty,
    limit my computer time,,, unheard of.... that is certainly going to be a challenge.

    I think you may have hit the nail on the head with your comment on my blog asking if yesterday was a full moon, it's pretty big out there tonite.

    I find myself re-thinking whether I should go to my conference. The reasons:
    1. I will miss my walks
    2. I will have to eat their food, instead of my own home-prepared...
    3. I won't be able to read as much.

    See what happens tomorrow....

    Thanks for sharing your goal. I, too, spend too much time on the evil machine. It's amazing how easy it is to get sucked in. Using a timer is a great idea.
