1. Make appointments I’ve been putting off: B
I got my eyes checked, and I called to make the other appointment I needed to make, but the podiatrist I wanted to see about my foot pain has moved offices and it would take too long to get to his new location. I meant to find a replacement but never got around to it.
2. Spend time with mom: A
I took mom out for smoothies, and we looked through her rock collection on Thursday. It was a sweet time! I blogged about it yesterday.
3. Start reconnecting with friends: A
It’s been a great week, friend-wise. I reconnected with an old friend, got to know a new friend a little better, made plans with other friends for next week, and even went to an all-girls’ prayer thing one evening.. I was totally out of my comfort zone, but I’m glad I went. After months of keeping my girl friends at a distance, it feels nice to have them back in my life. I forget how much I need them.
4. Take care of myself: B
“Supplements, healing foods, go outside, do yoga, stay on top of daily chores, get enough rest, but don’t hole up in bed all week.” I was kinda hit-and-miss again this week.. but at least I didn’t hole up in bed all week. At least I was trying!
This week’s goals:
1. Take care of myself
The usual: supplements, healing foods, go outside, do yoga, stay on top of daily chores, get enough rest.
2. Go for at least 3 walks
A simple goal.
3. New glasses
My current pair of glasses are pretty beat up – the frames and lenses are all scratched up! Not to mention my prescription is outdated. So I have my new prescription and I’m pretty sure I know which frames I want.. I just need to order them.
4. New shoes
Even though I didn’t make it to the foot doctor last week, I’m fairly certain that my foot pain is due to wearing too-narrow shoes. I’m still planning to see a specialist, but I also need to get some new shoes this week because I feel like all of my shoes are making the problem worse.
5. New shorts
I only have one pair of shorts that I’ve had for like three years, and they’re orange.. so they don’t exactly go with my whole wardrobe. I want to pick up at least 2 pairs that will go with all the clothes that I already own.
(side note: it may seem laughable to call these shopping goals “goals” since I’m getting new stuff out of them, but honestly, I hate shopping! These are things I have to force myself to do.)
6? New haircut?
I’ve been thinking about getting my hair cut for a while now; I just haven’t decided what I want. I figure I might as well start the ball rolling while I’m doing all these other makeover-esque things this week! I’m not gonna stress out about this one.. but at the very least, I want to be thinking about what I’d like.
