Well, it’s been predictably busy. And I haven’t met all my goals this month. In the end, I’m wondering if I entered into this month’s goals in an effort to give myself busy-work so I can keep my mind off the big changes on the horizon and the stress of making sure all the details are taken care of!
What were my goals?
- Go to bed on time. Not so great at that this month. And it’s been complicated this week by Sprout who hasn’t slept well most nights. We think it’s just because Daddy is away. But one way or another, I’ve ended up with one of the kids sleeping in my bed each night.
- Get up at least an hour earlier than everyone else. Well, we’ve all shifted to about an hour later than normal, but I have actually been getting up earlier than everyone else. I dropped 750words.com during the last week, but at least I’ve still been getting a jump on the day.
- Establish a regular exercise routine. I jumped into Turbo Jam again this week, and at first I was ready to give up, but I stuck with it, and I must say, it’s actually getting to be enjoyable. I downgraded myself to the Learn and Burn until I get it right and I’m more comfortable with a faster pace, but I can see it’s going to do something for me. I alternated Turbo Jam with Pilates and I think I got four days of exercise. Things were a little nutty so I’m not sure–maybe three.
There are only [sct date=”3/12/2012 23:56″ align=”none” size=”1″] days until we get on a plane. I haven’t finished packing (still repacking bins and eliminating things I know can’t go in the light of the volume of things that are sitting waiting to fit into a suitcase), and I still have a list of things to buy (things like makeup, vitamins, chicken boullion without MSG). I haven’t a clue what I’m going to try to accomplish in March. One thing about life in China: it’s never predictable. I’m going to take it easy on myself and set reasonable goals like get over jet lag. Watch me. I will. I promise.
