As I begin working on my post mid-year resolutions I decided I need to keep a record of how I am meeting these goals. So here is an overview which shows how I am getting on.
I kicked things off by fixing my bike. I am hopeless with anything involving handy work, so even something as simple as changing an inner tube felt like I was building a bike from scratch.
I got the right size inner tube, with the wrong valve, hen I got an inner tube too large, then one too small. Finally I got one just right.
I was already exhausted and I had not even tried putting on the inner tube, this took a lot of straining, grunting and swearing, till finally it was on.
I need to stop procrastinating and see a doctor. I got some advice from a personal trainer friend and he recommended rolling my sore foot into a golf ball. So far this has not helped.
On the plus side my fitness motivation is back after changing my gym schedule around – I no longer do early morning sessions, I no longer constantly feel tired and I feel much better. This is an ease to my mind that it is not a horrible disease.
Since getting paid, I have listed all my bills, then I set aside a budget, listing how much went on leisure and how much I would save. I felt responsible.
On a final note…
I created these ‘resolutions’ to help myself-improvement goals. It was an amazing bonus that Leiah, over at So, I read this book today was inspired by my goal to get rid of clutter. Has anyone else been inspired by anything? Let me know!
