Resolution -part II

January 29, 2013 at 4:44 pm (Uncategorized) ()

Okay -I  made it  to  the first  reward – I  am  book shopping  later!

Actually, I  made it a day or so ago .  I had a problem to solve first. I have observed that most of  time – the veggies were easy  and the exercise did not  happen. So I  am  uping the points to  30  — but I  get an extra point If  I do  both exercise and veggies in one  day.   This time the reward is the flylady water bottle. I’ve wanted one – and now I have a reason to get one.

Winter garden

January 20, 2013 at 4:37 pm (garden) (, , )

In  California ,  it  is almost  time to plant,  things like broccoli , chard , lettuce, etc.   Except we  have  just gotten  past  3  weeks of freezes.  I  think  it  is  going to be late  this year .  I  tried  the oranges on the tree – not  ready. Too acidic  and  a little  bland.   There  was  only  one on  the ground and they just  didn’t  want  to  let go of  the tree  yet.  I  did  clear  the raised  bed  and I  moved  some of  the ollas  around   in  preparation for  planting , but I don’t  trust  the  weather  yet.

resolved 2013

January 8, 2013 at 5:37 pm (Uncategorized) (, )

Last year – I did cut my hair ;I did not continue walking to work, but I did dance more;and I read a few books of my TBR shelf – but not 12.

This year is resolution game style. ( thanks to my friend, H ) 1 point for each of these goals – 1) eat two serving of veggies a day and 2) walk or garden 15 minutes a day . At 25 points I get a prize; this time I get to buy a book for a kindle.

Technically, I could reach this goal in 13 days , but I don’t think so. When I reach 50 points — I’ll be leveling up.( like a computer game ) Gaols will be harder and I’ll need more points for a reward.

I kind of like this idea. I have decided that the Goal is the ‘a day’ part , not the number part. I eat veggies, I do exercise, but I need consistency. If I reach my first two big goals ( eating 4 servings of veggies most days and exercising 30 min 4 times a week ), I can add or change things around. If I find something I need to do for a short-term, it will fit in to.

Why not have fun?
