|View from my balcony this weekend|
I confess, since returning from my conference earlier this month, I have not been particularly resolved. Let's see how things have been going shall we?
Tidy kitchen before bed every night, put away dishes in the morning: Miraculously, I have managed to continue this resolution through thick and thin. No matter how tired or out of it I feel, my kitchen is clean when I take myself off to bed. For this alone, I don't feel so bad about letting the rest slide...
Minimize my needs to give away more: Well, I've been meeting my budget for this so technically, things are ok.
Eat less meat: No clue how this went down the last few weeks, but I was certainly not making any special efforts to keep track. I suspect I had more meat plus days than minus. This was partly due to my trying out a new roast chicken recipe (one roast chicken lasts a looooooooong time if you live by yourself) and also not bringing lunches into work very much lately.
Get to work earlier: Disaster! I am still waking up fairly early to go to Bar Method but for the life of me I can't seem to leave my house at a good time after that. Even on non-exercise days I wake up early but again, cannot leave. Must fix this!
Writing out my progress has been helpful. I see now that I probably need to plan my menus more specifically and perhaps keep track of meals and schedules again, even though it's a pain. I definitely waste too much time on the internet in the mornings and that contributes to my late start on the work day. Weekends are when I organize for the coming week so on Saturday I will put a little structure back into my efforts and see how things go from there. The key is to stay conscious of these areas in my life that need improving.
