i love this challenge from a beautiful mess. i have a goal to be a better goal maker, ha. and this prompt is the perfect combination of attainable/motivating/low pressure.
the idea is to make 4 goals to work on before the end of 2012. they are supposed to be activity based-life enriching goals, rather than result oriented. you blog about them and set a reward when you complete them. i can get on board with that.
i am going to try to develop four [simple?] new habits by the time 2013 rolls around. here goes nothin.
my life, projects, goals, etc. through photos, blogging, journal writing. my life is going by, and i am going to want to remember it someday.
i seriously need to reduce the stress level in my life. i want to develop the habit of doing things on time....early even. get more diapers after i use the last one, rather than while i have a screaming baby waiting on the changing table for me. unload the dishwasher the night before. be early to meet friends. basic life skills i need to master :)
(is routined even a word?) i am kinda a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants girl. i've always liked being like that. but i have 16 pounds of scooting, giggling baby that needs me to get on a routine. and when she doesn't take a nap for 6 days in a row, i don't care if i never fly by those pants-seat again. i just want a routine. we have been working on it and i have started to see some magic. (plus, i have to have a routine to break!)
the usual.. get enough sleep, eat healthy and happy [for me that means desserts] and get some exercise. specifically i want to get back into the hang of green smoothies. AND i want to start rollerblading!!! somebody send a sniper to get me if i haven't rolled down a sidewalk or two by january.
i will be back regularly to talk progress and rewards.
