clement ci - day 91 attempting abstinence, 10 from self

12:02pm : late start. It's been 2 min since i last went off plan. Hard to say since i last relied on self.

Abstinence from unplanned tasks.
Abstinence from relying on self.

If i rely on God and not self, then i dont have bad-guilt when i fail. I just have good-guilt, how-can-i-do-that-better-guilt.

"Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church, and gave himself up for her." - Ephesians 5:25

3:12am : it's been hours since i last went off plan. Praise God. I relied on myself in some games we played. But i am very blessed to have this opportunity.

gotmusikk's Friday

OK.  I have been procrastinating a lot lately.  Time to really pay attention to how I feel, so that I engage with my emotions and don't numb them out with procrastination instead.  I need to rely on HP today, and frequently check in.

Progress, not perfection.
Consistency over emergencies.
Do the thing that feels healthy, not "shouldy" or escapist.


Check-in @ P.A.
Process my inbox completely

meditate 15 mins.

Complete 1 cycle of 15 minutes each of:
-- dishes
-- clean
-- back exercise/practice
-- massage


If there’s time after I complete what’s listed above, I will select 2 activities and cycle them in 15 minute bursts.

Things I did well today:
-- I got my "process inbox" done in a healthy manner.  I took real breaks.

Things I can improve on:
-- Don't wait until it becomes URGENT to take care of yourself.

3 things I’m grateful for:
1)  Havi & The Fluent Self
2)  P.A.

  • Wash up
  • Leave to give blood a 2pm (2 hrs)
  • Pickup prescription for M
  • W work 4 poms (2 hours)
  • Email Solicitor Qs re: C-tax and IR form and and ask for update (15 mins)
  • Text S to thank her and mention J (5 mins)
