I am freezing! Don't want to get off my cozy couch and start a new healthy habit! Hmmmm? Or do I? dear God Help me!
Restore me to sanity! When was that anyway? Maybe for about 5 minutes when I was born? Dis- ease...not at ease with the world around me for one reason or another...my disease doesn't want me better! It wants me to sit here all night long and waste my life away!
So, ready or not, here is what I am going to do!
6pm get off couch,
put on sweatshirt,
turn on some music,
make some healthy lean and green dinner
8:15(after some words with friends)progress, not perfection
clean the kitchen,
clean the dining room,
tired...going to bed at 9 for once in my life...tomorrow is another day!!
clean the bathroom,
clean the living room,
clean my bedroom,
clean the bathroom,
set up living room for new healthy habit of coming home and journaling after work tomorrow,
work on the den,
go to bed at 10 pm!
4 hours so I got to move it, move it!
Here I go!
1. FoY exercise (Done)
2. Meditation (Done)
3. VN LEP project
4. water plants
5. Cook veggies and marinate pork
6. OR conf call
7. Qi Gong
My procrastination is getting worse. not better.
Had a crisis today. I missed putting a shift in my schedule and didn't show up for work. Can't believe that I did it. I'm such a nervious wreck these days. I've got to more careful about writing things down and managing my commitments. Told someone I would do something and didn't set aside the time.
I need to go to bed earlier and get up on time.
To do's for the rest of the day:
12:30 - 3:00 - prospecting
3:00 - 5:00 - schoolwork. read assigned chapters and then start on grammar quiz.
5:00 - dinner
5:30 - go to sister's place and bring clothes over, walk to L subwayfor more exercise
10:00 - relax
11:00 - Wash dishes, put away laundry, make schedule for Friday

Grateful to have discovered this 12 step program this morning, as I sit down to start my work, and remind myself I do not need to close myself off from the rest of the world, but can keep this chatbox open while i work, which is supportive.
I discovered the pomodoro technique yesterday, thanks for recommending it to me.
I am excited about using it today to do:
start findings and plan finishing findngs section
coding is not draft but others are.
HP will be done, not mine.
Have a great day.
So far today i did 4 pomodoro bursts on my theoretical framework, 1 on my latvian hw, went to the bank, and to my language course, and now i am just back from having nice vegetarian meal. It is time to continue working, and finish the things i said i would do today, namely
1. theoretical framework 1st draft
2. finih coding so it is 100 % reliable
3. start findngs section, get a respectable amount done.
moreover i want to get to bed on time, before 11pm latest, but if possible b4 10pm, so i can start my early mornings again, which i enjoy so much more (for working) than late into the night. let me be in service of hp, and do hp will.
