odds and ends 13
So many things. Can’t think. Brain clogged. Brain dump imminent.
I am so behind with things on my “ooo…ooo…I should blog about that” list. I haven’t even told you about Thanksgiving yet! I also need to tell you my word for 2011. Gosh. So behind. I’m sorry I’ve neglected you. I hope we can still be friends.
Right now I’m just going to write things that come in to my head so I can post something already.
First of all, I finally finished my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project and sent it off in the nick of time. (That’s it at the top of the post.) I’ll tell you all about that later. Just know that I thought I had it all under very good time control….until the night before. It was a close one. It’s done and gone though and I’m so glad that I did it. Very exciting!
I’ve been a bum lately. I’ve done nothing particularly productive and it’s finally pushed me over the edge. I woke up a few days ago and sprang into action. I got back to exercise, journaling, core training (all of which I typically do every day). I updated my daily schedule (which I need for the structure). I got back to my hobbies – I at least got organized and poised to get back to it. I feel so much better. I’m generally very busy all of the time doing something productive. I do have my moments of rest now and then but I feel better if I’m doing and now I feel better. *whew* I’m glad we had this talk.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this on the blog before but I write down every single thing I eat. Every single thing, every single day. I put it in a spreadsheet that counts calories, protein, water intake, etc. If I don’t, I overeat or don’t eat at all. At the very least I don’t eat enough of something, usually protein. It keeps me honest because when I do it I include every single indulgence, including everything I drink. I find it very informative, interesting and sometimes shocking. Still, I have done it every day for years. I know it sounds obsessive but I can’t be the only person who does this…can I? Anyone? Anyway, I’ll probably always do it, because it works for me. Do you have any habits that help you keep your diet healthy (or at least intact)?
Well, that’s it for this post. Thanks for stopping by. Do come back soon when, hopefully, my post will be coherent. It’s on my new daily schedule.
