Do I need motivation or advice?

Thursday, March 07, 2013

That's today's question. I think I answered it yesterday in regard to motivation: Right now the daily blogging & feedback are helping to maintain my motivation, but long term I want to internalize my motivation so that a good bedtime becomes just a normal part of self-care for me. The word "faithful," which struck a chord for me & for a couple of friends, will help me with that. (I like it about 100 times better than "dutiful," emoticon though duty has its place.)

As for advice, it's always welcome, but right now there's no specific issue I'm craving advice on.

Last night I didn't do quite so well: I got home close to 10 (after seeing a really great Spanish comedy & then enjoying conversation over a light supper with a Colombian friend) & realized that I needed to catch up on leaving feedback as well as track on the team thread. It all took enough time that my bedtime ended up being 11:10. Still, that's SO much better than between 11:30 & midnight as it often had been in recent weeks. This morning I was able to get up & get in some good cardio for a little over half an hour, yay!

Tonight I have two pleasant tasks (besides blogging here & commenting on one or two more friends' blogs): signing all the papers for my condo refinancing & packing for my weekend trip to St. Louis! If the appraisal comes in as it should, I'll be getting a 15-year mortgage with an effective interest rate of 3.015%. (I've never been sure why there are two different rates--the other one is 2.875%, I think.) I'm super-happy about that. And March 11 will be my Bea's second birthday, so my trip is to celebrate! SUPER happiness there too!

And I think I can still make it to bed before 11!
