Goals

When I started setting my challenge list, I had put GOALS on Day 1 for obvious reasons. My original goal was to write every day, complete all the challenges. I started the list with booky things–I had based my challenge list off previous challenges I had done, although I tried my hardest not to use too many prompts from other people’s lists. But the longer I went along, the more I deviated from bookish themes, and started coming up with true writing prompts. I write about books all the time, but my mind is constantly getting pulled into other subjects that I want to write about. Let’s vary it up some. Of course, if you want to match books to the topics, feel free. I just want you to write something, anything, every day.

Something else happened, too, after I set GOALS for Day 1.

I started taking a yoga class. And I completely fell in love with it. So, I have some new goals that surround the new lifestyle that I’m taking on. I have class 3 times a week–Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. And even on the days that I am tired, and frustrated, and sore, I’m going. Every once in awhile, I may have a schedule conflict, and that’s ok. I couldn’t go Wednesday (ummm…Benedict Cumberbatch in Frankenstein on the big screen? Sorry yoga…priorities.), so I made sure to do stretches on Thursday. That’s the great thing about yoga–it’s so easy to do at home.

I don’t have any specific weight goals–in fact, I’m trying not to weigh myself. My instructors told me to take the focus off of that. The important thing is to focus on reducing my stress and maintaining my health, so that is what I’m working on now. My wellness is increasing, and I can feel it. I am already starting to notice a change in my body, it’s crazy!

Good things are going to happen in November. Who is ready?

 

Favorite Place to Read

The husband is out of town for awhile, which is kind of awesome for my introvert side. She goes, “YOU MEAN I GET TO DO NOTHING BUT READ FOR 10 DAYS? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.”

I do have yoga classes, and Benedict Cumberbatch tomorrow. But yes, Introvert Side, you do get to read uninterrupted a lot more than usual.

I’ve turned my office (our second bedroom) into the perfect introvert space. My desk is in here, obviously, but the other corner is my reading corner. I have my bookshelves on either side. It’s pretty much just heaven.

The couch isn’t very pretty, but it suuuuure is comfortable! (shhhh don’t tell my husband I said that. I’m determined to get a new couch downstairs someday!)
