Exercise in some capacity for at least 15 minutes 15 days a month. No change this week, although in the middle of the week I dropped a pound and quickly put it back on again. Water retention. Have I mentioned I enjoy being a girl? I pulled a quad on Tuesday, so only 2 days of exercise for me. I will try to get in two workouts this weekend.
Write here every day for at least 5 minutes and for at least 2 minutes in my “Line a Day” 5 year journal. Still going strong. Sometimes finding the five minutes is tricky, but I know myself. If I skip, I lose momentum. I don’t want to lose momentum. I like having a record of my own life. I also realize that I’m still doing an emotional purge. Yesterday’s post was very difficult for me; that essay was pared down quite a bit. I’ve been wanting to write that one for awhile, and seeing the book at my in-laws house was the catalyst. I want to stop dwelling on that.
Have something I write/create be shared in a public space (à la performance, someone else publishing it, etc) by end of year. STILL waiting. I’m trying to practice patience here. I cannot just go and put on this particular show because in my mind, the original germ of an idea came from the music director. She seems to be avoiding me. I am coming to terms with the possibility it won’t happen, but trying to stay positive. Hopefully by this time next week I’ll have heard somethign.
Re-learn the piano, playing at least 5 times a week (emphasis on playing) Waiting on my banjo lessons.
Make two new gal pals and/or strengthen relationship with 2 women I already know so I can consider us good friends and not just acquaintances. Due to Monkey L having what appeared to be the plague, I had to skip knitting this past week. Trying again on Tuesday.
Figure out how to make turning 40 fabulous. I’m not feeling fabulous at all. I feel fat and wrinkled and totally tied to a show that I am excited about that seems dead in the water through no fault of my own. The word capricious is my enemy this week.
Take one picture a day for the entire year. Haven’t gotten every day this week, due to the boy’s illness, but most days have seen my iPhone camera. Lots of pictures of the baby, who changes almost every day, it seems.
