Moody, broody and refreshing

Hubby was in a bad mood over the weekend and I ended up feeling good about it. That’s not as evil as it sounds! Hubby and I deal with bad moods in different ways. I like the deal with my issues myself; I analyse and weigh […]

Tue Review: 9 August 2016

We’re doing really well with our daily exercise, but I am highly susceptible to “DOMS” – delayed onset muscular soreness. The next day after strength training, I’m fine. The 2-3 days after that, I’m wobbling on stairs like I’m walking a tightrope. Adding that to […]

We’re doing really well with our daily exercise, but I am highly susceptible to “DOMS” – delayed onset muscular soreness. The next day after strength training, I’m fine. The 2-3 days after that, I’m wobbling on stairs like I’m walking a tightrope. Adding that to the longer hours at work and the evenings disappear much quicker. I feel very good about it all, but I’m aware that I’m not interacting with friends so regularly. Most are used to that!

Goal Check!
Brain Goal: I will read 5 books by Christmas.
Action: That’s it. I’m packing my book in my handbag tomorrow.

Body Goal: I will exercise for 30 minutes every day, outside when the weather permits.
Action: OMG, my legs.

Soul Goal: I will create a post for each of the new places I’ve visited this year.
Action: I will have to sit with hubby on the weekend to talk about all the wonderful places we’ve been, because my memory isn’t as fresh. I am a goldfish. Good thing I married an elephant.

Tue Review: 26 July 2016

My Tue Review is being written on Thursday because I am simply not on top of things right now. I’m settled into the new job to an extent, but I’m not 100% confident in my ability to pull it all off. We’re looking for a […]

THINK… or just be an introvert, it’s easier

THINK… or just be an introvert, it’s easier

Hubby sometimes thinks out loud and thinks it’s a conversation. This week it was about exercising. The “conversation” started as “let’s join a gym” and ended with “gyms don’t work for me”. I wasn’t actually in that conversation at all! I know that he will […]

Tue Review: 19 July 2016

I’m very glad I wrote my post on procrastination, I’m now trying a mix of tips to keep me on track. I’ve got an app tracking my time writing and to keep together a list of everything I want to get done.

Goal Check!

Brain Goal: I will read 5 books by Christmas.
Action: I want to read my book, but the best time to read would be at lunchtime. Which si fine, because I can just pack it in my bag, but I don’t want to damage it. My action this week is to find where I put my big ziplock bags, ha ha.

Body Goal: I will exercise for 30 minutes every day, outside when the weather permits.
Action: I am, but it’s still not intense.

Soul Goal: I will create a post for each of the new places I’ve visited this year.
Action: One down, how many more to go? HEAPS! 😀

Procrastination Obliteration

Procrastination Obliteration

I don’t understand myself sometimes. For example, I’m currently feeling enthused and motivated to throw myself into my new job. At the same time, I’m also feeling overwhelmed to the point of paralysis. I have work in front of me that makes me feel excited, […]

Stirling in your soul

Stirling in your soul

Sometimes it’s possible to see your favourite moments lived by someone else. We were in Stirling, Scotland, for the day and it was wet. Not torrentially so, but enough that our new tartan umbrellas were getting a light wash. It was a day trip from […]

Tue Review: 12 July 2016

 

Still loving the new job! I have to admit, though, that I’m beginning to feel the pressure. It’s not coming from anyone other than me. I’m just determined to do a really good job and I’m impatient to have something amazing to show!

Goal Check!

Brain Goal: I will read 5 books by Christmas.
Action: I’ve read the cover, does that count?

Body Goal: I will exercise for 30 minutes every day, outside when the weather permits.
Action: Getting some walking done, but I’m still dreaming of a scooter…

Soul Goal: I will create a post for each of the new places I’ve visited this year.
Action: Well, there is one draft coming together.

Tue Review 5 July 2016

Week two of my new job. The introductions have taken place and now it’s time to start to looking as though I know what I’m doing. I do know what I’m doing – in theory – but now I need to actually do it. It’s […]
