It is late, and I have been getting through my day, trying to work my list of things to do, and finding unexpected "interruptions" to deal with...that is how it always seems to go. I have finally gotten to my online duties and activities.
September 1st starts my one year "diet" effort...trying to reduce my weight and help my body. I have resolved to weigh myself on the first of the month for my official chart. I am working on my calorie charts and menu planning. I have been collecting the labels on the foods I eat to try to work out the total calories I eat, or somewhere near the right total. Mixed foods are a challenge.
I am learning portions...cooked and uncooked...cups, ounces, grams, Tablespoons...etc. I like to put everything I can into foods, that may be a problem for my calorie counts!!! :-) I finally worked out the details of my pasta salad today...then I realized I forgot the pasta amount...wrecked my happiness. I think the pasta salad was over half of my 1800 calorie goal. :-) This is not going to be easy.
I am trying to build up my Etsy shop and other online sales venues by creating new listings. I haven't gotten to it today...it is a real challenge. I may try to list my fiverr.com/work2gather gig if I can. Midnight is the deadline.
I found my GOALS recording from Brian Tracy and listened to it again. I may help myself by putting it on once a day, to remind me of what goals are and how other people achieve them. I can do this! I know I can! :-)
Actually, I have been a goal maker for years...my goals just don't always include money. Now I need money...retirement, survival, WT...a lot of things. I have a goal to make $300 a week...but not sure how long that will take. I was breaking it down into prices and how many things I would need to sell for that price. Now I am trying to think of what I can sell that is worth a LOT of money! :-) September will help me find out.
Well...that's the happenings of the day...some of them. Maybe we can all lose weight and achieve our goals together...that would be great.
