Insert obligatory “I’m a bad blogger” and all that jazz.
I feel like I should be in a confessional at church:
“forgive me blog followers it’s be WAY TOO DAMN LONG SINCE MY LAST POST and as penance I will write 10 blogs in 2 days and beat myself up incessantly until I feel like I’m caught up.”
You may or may not remember that my latest challenge on Nerd Fitness is to Be Happy and do things in my daily life that work toward that goal. I suppose in some ways I have been. I feel like I’m in a better mental place these days…unless you ask me about my blog…or my Spartan training. I’m doing little things here and there but I’ve not given either of those things 100% effort.
I do feel bad about not making gains in those areas. I just don’t know how to get past that totally overwhelmed feeling. Let me take that back. I do know. I just need to chip away at it a little at a time. Set small daily goals that move me toward the big goal.
As I’m typing this, I remember that I’ve actually done some of the smaller things, but in my perfectionist mind, I haven’t done EVERYTHING, therefore I haven’t done ANYTHING. That is a tough nut to crack! But I’m going to keep working on it so that I don’t let my perfectionist tendencies destroy my happy and steal my joy!
Small goals accomplished but not celebrated:
Found out what paperwork I need to submit to company to improve credit (that moves us toward house buying goal)
Made my appointment for my surgery consult.
Made Lil P’s appointments for both her hearing test and her ENT… She failed her hearing test with her PCP, so I’m wondering if she might be just as deaf as Lil Man was. Thankful to have insurance so *IF* she ends up having to have surgery it won’t break us.
Here we go. In an attempt to feel as though I’m getting caught up here’s another pic dump of life lately and I promise to work harder on keeping up with my training and review blogging.
Big J bought me a fancy new HE washing machine so this non HE soap has got to go. I couldn’t bear to waste it so I took it down to the laundry center at our apartment complex. I hope people who needed it got good use out of it.
Took myself on a little shopping spree- 2 pairs of shoes, 5 skirts and a few tops. It’s really hard for me to shop/buy things for myself so I’m really proud of this purchase! Foot photobomb courtesy of Lil P’s little piggies!
I do promise I will do my best to work toward my Be Happy goals.
How do you maintain balance, and keep yourself sane?
What’s something that you accomplished recently that you haven’t given yourself enough credit for?
