Getting back the 'old me'
Saturday, February 09, 2019
Last time I wrote about how I want to get back the 'old me' rather than trying to create a new me.
I'm trying to define what the 'old me' would do that I"m not doing now. The first thing that comes to mind is walking.
The old me, at different times in my life, would walk a lot - at least 2 miles a day. When I was in college, I walked. When I was working in the city, I walked. When I lived out in the country, I walked.
So I've set a goal to gradually get back to two miles a day in the next few months (and maybe more, eventually).
My second goal is to capture all my ideas on paper - I've been telling myself for years that I need to put everything into a binder - exercises and habit tracker and menu plans or recipes, etc - so that I can find what I'm looking for (I have zillions of bookmarks on the computer, but good luck finding what I want when I need it, lol, I do better with paper printouts). I've hesitated to do it because I my perfectionist-self wants to have it all set up 'perfectly' and colour-coded and indexed and just finding the 'right' binder to put it in is enough to make me quit...Enough of that, I just need to start writing things down and not worry what it looks like.
So this week my goals are to walk 1000 steps a day (starting back at minimum for now) and to start a binder with whatever I think I need - affirmations, vision statement, exercises, words of wisdom that I find on the internet, or whatever. I have the binder and stack of paper - and it's not perfect and that's okay!
