Hello everyone! I hope that your Monday is off to a great start.
Last week I wanted to work on getting to know Wordpress, finish up my jewelry stuff, and walk the dogs more. I'm happy to say that I got through two of these. I got a lot accomplished with Wordpress. At first it was feeling pretty intimidating but I think I am starting to get the hang of it. That mean this ole blog may be making the switch soon!
I also did pretty well as far as walking the dogs. It turned out to be a really fun, relaxing part of my day. I didn't even think about jewelry things this week, though.
This past week was a bit of a wake up call for me. Lately I have been neglecting myself in leu of getting things done. It's crazy the pressures that we put on ourselves when it comes to blogging. I treat it as something that has to get done, like something serious. And I like thinking that way, to an extent. I think that if you are serious about blogging then eventually it becomes more than just a hobby and your actual blogging "responsibilities" become real. But it's still a blog. And it's still not worth losing sleep over.
This past week I was tired. A stayed up way too late every night because I "needed" to do this for the blog or the shop or the house, or whatever else could possibly come up at 2 in the morning. Apparently this is a productive hour for me. But I was anxious, and exhausted, and felt all around bad. And that brings me to my goals for this week…
- Sleep more. My goal is to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Hopefully more, but at least 7.
- Eat clean-er. I have started making it a point to make my diet "cleaner." I love how it's been going. It's such a wonderful feeling to really feel good about what you're eating. I want to up it this week. If I were to set a concrete goal, I'd like to have at least 4 days this week that are completely "clean-eating" days.
- Spring cleaning. I want to start some spring cleaning. Like really deep spring cleaning. I anticipate this taking a few weeks which is fine by me. I kind of look forward to spring cleaning all year.
- Slow down. I want to take this week slower. I feel like I am constantly going, constantly thinking. Whether it's about work, or the blog, or the house, I am constantly thinking about what I need to do, what can make it better. All that constant thinking is exhausting. So this week, slower is key.
So that's it for this week! What are your goals this week?
