Okay so this isn’t really going to be about everything I didn’t achieve as in a reverse-to-do-list style but more so: achievements/things I did plus the little improvements through in the form of things I didn’t do. It sounds more complicated than it is, promise. Think aboiut it: sometimes it’s harder to keep yourself from dong things. Getting mad at your husband/boyfriend//roommate/cat in a situation you’re tempted to. Not beating yourself up about eating that whole bar of chocolate or skipping a workout.
Let’s get chatting about our weeks in review – I’m curious to hear what you did – and didn’t! – do, too. I hope Meg won’t get mad at me for putting a different spin on the Week in Review ;).
During the past week I …
Worked another five days. Ups and downs as usual. Getting along well with my colleagues helps make the paperwork more endurable.
Published three posts and it felt good to be back in my old schedule again.
Replied to all comments for the first time in a way too long while. I need to get better at this.
Didn’t check a lot off my to-do list on Saturday. The accomplishment: not stressing [much] about it. Some pep talk from my mum might have helped.
Got some laundry done – you might remember how much I “like” it. Fresh sheets are pretty close to heaven. In fact, I consider every change of sheets a little gift to myself – beating my laziness in exchange for the amazing feeling of sinking into airy freshly washed pillows. Okay, I’m apparently very fond of them ;).
Didn’t skip meals when it was tempting. It’s odd I’d even be tempted because that never even came to my mind in past years but lately things have been. .. weird. I need to plan ahead better so skipping is definitely no option.
Finally sent an email that had been long overdue. It felt uncomfortable writing it hence my procrastination but I’m glad it’s off now.
Offered to run errands for a colleague and then did so twice though it took me some convincingher it wasn’t a prblem for me at all. It was interesitng to see that the fear of burdening others when asking for or accepting favours is still present in people way past their twenties or even thirties.. The second time she just requested a Franzbrötchen and I insisted on paying it. Just because. Or maybe because I felt a little bad for her not being able to eat my homemade goodies before …?
Didn’t postpone sharing the recipe for these no-bake peanut butter and jelly chocolate fudge bars once again despite the internet playing diva once again in the process [think: crashing several times, not uploading my pictures]. Thanks for the last-minute trouble-shooting/advice, Kristy!
Didn’t start compiling my good good links as late as usual. There’s still room for improvement but at least I didn’t frantically searched for the notes of posts I wanted to include all Saturday. In fact …
Saturday I spent a few hours around town walking and drinking coffee/tea with my mum and sister. Baby in tow obviously and the star of the day. My sister is long gone again and the house way too quiet without the little one.
Prepared a batch of the above-mentioned bars as per my sister’s request but she forgot them in the fridge upon her hurried descent to the train station. I guess my colleagues will have to “suffer” through another batch ;).
Did some Blogilates every other day. It’s great to see little improvements already after such a short time. I’m still unsure about comtting to one of the monthly calendars. Fear of failure is a stupid little brain fart.
All in all, it’s not been the best but also not the worst week. I’m couting down a lttle until the holidays start but not forgetting to see the silver linings in every day. Let’s not let these go unnoticed, okay?
Happiness-inducing today: Finishing even a rainy and stomach ache-involving day on a good note.
What wer some of your positive “don’ts”?
