I fell off the wagon with updates, and with progress. Such is life. Mental progress was made about Tony; perhaps that should have been my #1 goal instead of weight loss, because that’s been a pretty big one.
Lose at least 10 lbs. My real goal is 18 but at the very least I want to fit into a particular suit and dress, and I know 2 lbs a week every week is not going to happen.
NOPE NOPE NOPE | Perhaps I should modify this goal. I haven’t really tried other than increasing my physical activity. I’ve been good on vacation; every day Liam and I have played tennis, or frisbee, or catch. I was determined to move my body and I’ve done that.
But there’s been no weight loss.
Fox could be good for me in this regard. He’s also trying to lose a little bit since he’s unhappy with putting some weight back on. He has a strict diet he can use and I may follow it as well, just for a couple of weeks.
List and sell all of the wedding silver on eBay.
NOT YET | I have weeks without Liam once back from vacation and I will use that time to get it done.
Start doing yoga again at home, at least once a week.
FAIL | Not. at. all.
Go to the gym three times a week.
KINDA SORTA | replaced by a weekly tennis lesson and a couple of bike rides. See above for what I’ve done on vacation. It feels good. A trainer from the gym has emailed me to ask if I want to train with him. When I’m back I will set up a time for him to put me on a routine.
Have less owing on my line of credit.
ON TRACK | I’ve avoided looking at my accounts whilst away. Perhaps I should. I think I’ll be okay; this vacation was paid for a while ago so shouldn’t do too much damage at this point.
Book the meeting with the financial planner.
ON TRACK | failed to book meeting before my vacation but still need to get it done.
STUFF I ACTUALLY MANAGED TO DO
Settle on the dates for vacations with certain family friends. | MODIFIED & DONE | I planned the one trip for October. Hopefully I will get to see a couple of fellow bloggers whilst there. The other trip I will sort out later. It’s not urgent.
Stop staying up too late during the week. | DONE. The vacation has helped re-set, as has work which now requires me to actually be in the office at a reasonable hour.
Buy a bike and ride it with Liam on weekends | DONE
Sell the pile of Liam’s clothes that have been sitting in my office for months. | DONE
Book (and do!) the boudoir photo shoot I just bought on Groupon. Yes, again…I let the last one expire. | DONE – booked it for August 22nd.
Finalize my updated will and powers of attorney. | DONE – WAITING | First draft reviewed and corrections made. Getting close to being 100% done.
