Good enough. There are lots of things I'm so behind on, it's not good, but I'm trying not to stress about it. Just because there's a giant pile doesn't mean I shouldn't take breaks and have a little me time. I'm doing my best, and that's it. If I overexert myself, I'll get sick and then what?
Last Week's Goals
GET ENOUGH SLEEP!! (sorry,
but I'm really really dreadfully stupid about this one. I have some
thing in me that wants to stay up and have me time, dammit, me me!): I
did better. I discovered I really like sleep, but I forget every night
until I hit the pillow.
-Eat decent food at regular intervals. Plan
ahead. Tuesday sucked. Friday was better, but I still felt weak at the
end of the day.
-Stop periodically. Check in. Take a breath. Take
another breath. Yes. Doing as much as someone with ten minutes between
two very different classes can. Now I know what the students sometimes
have that lost look -- they've just suffered whiplash from one subject
-Do pilates twice this week. No.
-Use the relative
lull of the early part of this week to pump out that article! No, but I
got it done today. There are all sorts of problems, like I totally
didn't follow through on the word count we'd agreed on, which I know is
an obnoxious academic problem, but. . .it's good enough. I'm so glad
it's done. I have a ton else to do.
-15 minutes of writing a day is still writing: and I did that several days, though it was sometimes hard.
-Have a book at the ready for moments away: yes
-Chip away at service pile: there wasn't much chipping this week, though I did a couple things; the pile still remains, mostly
-Make sure to do the online class with Absurdist Child early in the week and watch Wednesday Nature program.: yes
calm. Nothing is worth killing yourself over. This is my mantra. I
really don't want to have any more serious health problems.
This Week's Goals
-Keep calm. Nothing's worth killing yourself over. Move like water.
-15 minutes of writing is still writing.
-Take magnesium supplement 2x a day and see if that makes me feel better.
-Be organized about food and eat and admit when I need a break.
-Be good enough about grading and prep.
-Read more, when possible.
