***October Goals***

~10,000 steps 5 days a week
*Done! (lost count one day while charging Fitbit, but confident I met goal)

~10 minutes of "very active" activity (according to Fitbit) 5 days a week

~10 minutes of meditation 5 days a week
*Meh 50/50 on this one.

~clean out one cabinet, drawer or shelf 5 days a week
*Done! This is going fabulously well! I usually wait til the week before Thanksgiving and just about wear myself out doing it all at once. This year all of my lesser used items will be freshened up and ready BEFORE I plan my menu!

~drink 10 glasses of water everyday

~choose the healthiest option available for meals 5 days a week

~take a good long soak in the tub once a week
*Not a good week for baths.

~make 1 piece of jewelry 5 days a week
*While I didn't quite do one piece a day, this did help push me thru the perfectionism a few times. Rather than obsessing over getting something perfect (and changing it 12 times or just giving up) I pushed on thru. Definitely continue to strive for this.

~make contact with the person who wanted to see more of my work
*She is interested in more of my glass work and I didn't get in the kiln. I did have another individual wanting to set up an appointment for her Christmas shopping tho. She's a fan. Woot!

~con someone into playing a board game with me once a week
*Hasn't happened yet, but my son and I do have a Yahtzee night planned for tonight!

~start planning Christmas gift list

~see what classes are available.....craft, nutrition, exercise or ???????
*Use what ya got! This goal had a dual purpose...social interaction and self improvement. We live in the country and there are days when my husband and son are my only human contact. I need more human interaction. However, I remembered (just last night) I had bought some on-line video classes hoping to help me hone my self taught skills. I want/need to focus on those for now. When I 'm "in the zone" of working or learning, I'm as happy as a kid in a puddle. So for now, I will utilize the "self improvement" part of this goal and save the "social interaction" part for when I take a beautiful display of my items to the lovely shop owner in town.

~make a dental appointment
*Not yet.

All in all, not a bad week. The scale stayed the same, but that's okay. I stayed within my caloric range and did pretty well with everything else.

Now, if I could just get some sleep! I'm doing a lot of tossing and turning. Hormones? Weather changes? Not sure, but even taking Valerian (which usually knocks me out) is not working. emoticon

    Looks live a very good week to me, 10,000 steps not always easy to do so , way to go!!After reading this I think I should clean out my cabinets too, I always wait, so I should do this too.
    You have some great skills there, making jewelry, and glass work, never knew! Good job getting back with your customers. Maybe you could post some pictures would love to see. emoticon
    Great week Corena, bet if you got some nice hot bubble baths before bed it would help you sleep. Also hope you got more walks in when you take your son to school.
