Project 52 - Week 4





Week 4 was not quite as successful as the previous two weeks when it came to weekly goals. I only managed to cook twice (#3) - spaghetti and meatballs and chourico and potato casserole- and walk twice (#10). Though I did try to walk two other times, even getting so far as to get dressed like Nanook of the North, head outside and walk part way down the street. Both times I had to turn back because it was just too icy. I figured if I nearly fell three times in the first 5 minutes, it probably wasn't safe. Of course, I could have done some other exercise, but since I haven't joined a gym yet (#11), my options were limited. Excuses, excuses. I know! There are still flowers in the family room (#36) and dining, (though they are looking a little sad) and I did write at least one blog post (#33). And finally, I did a bang up job on (#30) paying attention to local politics. Last week our town held a special election for a School Committee member. Not only did I vote, I went out in a sleet/ice storm to do it! And I reminded my husband to take Katie (who was still home from college) to vote in her very first election! I even attended a support party for my candidate as we waited for election results to come in - he won in a landslide!

Well, that's it for me for last week. Not great. But I am working on a couple of my monthly and one time goals for this week. And hopefully I'll get my three days of exercise and cooking in. I'll keep you posted.

Sounds like you are still doing great! Keepit up!

The cold weather really does take my motivation level down a bit. But it sounds like you are hardly letting that affect you at all.

you know, I think you're still plugging along...there is this little thing called life that sometimes steps in and messes with the best laid plans and all you can do is move on...keep going!

Yes, good luck. I think I like that your method provides some structure. That seems to be the part I'm missing.

I think you are doing well, the weather does impact some of your goals.
I am still on my letter writing campaign, and I usually write it on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Good for you! I don't know how y'all who live in cold locations do it. If it is below 65 I wait until the weather is warmer just to go to the grocery store! Congrats to Katie on voting in her first election. We used to take the kids with us so they would see how important it is (and a privledge) to vote and now that most of them have turned 18, they vote whenever there is and election. So far they vote for the same things we do so nobody is canceling anybody else's vote!

This cold weather is no good for one's exercise motivation at all, but I do still manage to do a little on the Wii though!
