Some weeks look better than others on a pie chart.
This week, my pie chart looks like somebody yanked it off the wall, threw it to the ground, stomped on it with Timberland boots and then twisted for effect! Yep, it was that messy. Think blueberry pie all over your new beige carpet. You got the idea.
I shared with a friend who is on her own quest to set goals and work toward them each week, that I had no clue what I was going to set as my three teeny, tiny goals this week. My progress last week was less than stellar, but then again, I had a lot of stuff going on for the least two weeks. I’m easily distracted by shiny things, so you can imagine how frayed my neural synapses (or is that synapsi?), were this week. Still, I am not willing to surrender my pursuit of a more intentional life, so onward and upward we go with my three new goals for this week.
THREE TEENY, TINY GOALS FOR THIS WEEK
Since I did not score 100 on my habit exercises this week, I will not talk at length about what I did with my goals the last 7 days. I will set 3 new goals though.
1 Continue on with eating and exercise goals as previously stated. This is working for me, so I’m going to keep doing it for a while.
2 At the end of each work day spend some quality time with Mr, asking him once again the conversation starting question: What concerns you today? This has always proven a great investment of my time and his, which is why I’m resurrecting this goal.
3 Get my blood labs done. Still have not done that, so on the list it goes again.
Some weeks are better than others. That’s not to excuse my lackluster habit building abilities this week, but does explain why some of my goals didn’t get done.
WHAT DID GET DONE THIS WEEK!
This week, I exercised almost every day. On the day of my “call back” I did not exercise. I got up late and I was pooped by day’s end. I therefore missed 2 days this week.
I made a trip north to see the wee ones, which always puts a smile on my face.
I got through a stressful “call back” with the imaging center and was given a clean bill of health.
I went to bed early two nights.
I celebrated with family on their birthday.
I got new glasses, so I can actually see what I’m typing now. 😉
I was humbled by God’s prompting for me to apologize to a friend. Sometimes I say things that come out way different than I mean them. I did that recently. Ugh, I hate it when I do that.
Have you ever been there, or am I the only one who does such things?
I reached out to several people to check on them and tell them I was praying for them. In each situation where I did that the folks contacted seemed to feel loved and appreciated because of the interaction. That made me feel good!
That’s all for now. Hopefully you are having a good week and meeting some of your goals in life. If you want to share what those goals might be, comment below. Thanks a million for stopping by and supporting my blog. You guys rock!!!
What distractions got in the way of your best efforts this week? How effective are you are refocusing, once you’re attention has been diverted?
