Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
Up and down all night, kept going back to bed, because I have a busy day of appointments and running around and knew I needed the sleep. Then ended up sleeping past my alarm! Still have to shower and get ready, but have plenty of time, as long as the kids don't drag their feet.
I did have some inspiration during one of my wake-ups. I was thinking back on a podcast by Ruth Soukup that I watched on the myths of productivity and realized that I'm still doing them! I'm not putting into practice the stuff that I learned. And what good does that do me? Not a stitch. So today, even though I'm going to be gone most of the day, I'm going to try to be more intentional with my time at home, make my to do list, prioritize it, and what is actually feasible for me to get done today. And then I'm going to try my best to stick to it.
I'm supposed to start working on my 'road map' to success. What will it take to get me there? About how long will it take? What will I need to buy? What time investments will I need to make? All these questions and more I need to work on, to build a map toward success on my big dream goals. I have three. My main one is learning how to sew so well that I can open my own online business. The next is losing the rest of the weight and getting in great shape so I can go hiking and stuff again. And the third is training my dog Hope as best I can to see if she can become a service dog. All of those things are going to take a lot of time and effort. Add in that I am a wife, Mom, and homemaker, and that is really a lot!
My family, and spending time with them, rank up there with my #1 goal of learning to sew. My A list. The rest will get worked into my day as my B list, my secondary concerns. Everything else goes under my C list, the can do it if I manage to have time.
I just need to figure out when the best time for me to work out is. It used to be first thing in the morning, but that was years ago, and I know my body, and routine, have changed. My kids want to work out with me, and I have promised them I won't wake them up till 0800 during the Summer, but I usually get up at 0600. If I wait till later in the day, I usually forget or get sidetracked or tired. I think I'm going to try first thing in the morning, and see how it works for the rest of the week and possibly continue into next week if it goes well. The kids will have to either work out on their own (with me supervising) or get up early enough to work out with me. If early morning is not good, I'll try waiting till after the kids wake up and see if being awake for a little bit helps me get moving. I know it needs to be before noon as that is when I am most productive and have the most energy.
Well, off to get ready for my day, hopefully we'll have time to go thrift shopping, need Summer clothes for me and the kiddos! But I'm already tired, so who knows by the time we are done with other stuff if we will be able to get it done or have to wait till the weekend. Have to buy bathing suits for vacation as well. I'm tired just thinking about it.
Have a great day!
