RisingUp Check-In 3/5
Finally settled in to the latest place. I am really at the end of my rope with it all. The stress was so bad last month that I am now sick with a cold (it reached its peak late last night, and now I think hopefully turning around healing).
1. Do 4 assignments daily
2. Find place to live (just start researching ads, and narrowing down wants/needs) - trust that the money will come, probably from multiple sources
3. Find job (just start calling an agency a day, and researching job ads)
Simple enough, right?
I can do it, because I have to. I am no longer willing to stay at the bottom. Enough is enough. Can't do it anymore. Done.
My new motto is Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
1. read news for only 1 hr
3. work on WEEE doc
4. cook veggie and fish
5. AA upgrade
7. fold laundry
8. qigong before bed
9. eat healthy snacks
9. workout with jackie
Show up (done) plan exer
" Never inspire fear. It is an
evil ally." A. Russell
Thoughts are the language of the mind and feelings are the language of the body. If I feel fear, anxiety, what am I thinking?Usually that I am hopeless. But that is not true, with the help of my HP, I am a living miracle and there are no limits to that power. only in my thoughts.
My challenge: use the tools that work for change and tap into that power.and pray for willingness tobe willing.
Yes, I am doing taxes.
Journey 7:30 am
Happy Tuesday! Still feeling a bit under the weather but much better then yesterday. I'll make my todo list, do an easy exercise video for 30 minutes, have breakfast, then check back.
"Don't Panic" - Douglas Adams
It feels like spring, outside and in my heart. I'm going to make today a positive day, and when my work is done I will enjoy the sunshine!
Clean up deskdidn't get side-tracked; moving on to no. 2! I can do one hour!!
Check links - one hour
3. Two lesson plans
- did the most important one
4. Make Invoice
- simply ran out of time
I will feel so good and at peace when I'm done.
Good luck, everyone!
I had a really good day - just did some gardening. I hope I can keep the momentum going!
clement ci - day 115 attempting abstinence, 35 from self
Abstinence from unplanned time.
Abstinence from relying on self. Day 35. And it feels it. It has been different. The up days and the down days both different in their own way. There is a limit to how far i can fall if i'm relying on God. Only until i remember again that i'm relying on God, and then everything's better again.

7:49am : it's been 6h 40min since i last went off plan.
It's been 6h 40min since i last relied on self. and both of my lapses last night were mitigated and restrained by the way God has already transformed me using this program.
9:26am : struggling, feeling dread. par for the course. 15 points for a procrastinator to consider when confronted with the urge to go off plan:
9:58am : i am struggling. I am grateful for the strong temptation and dread, because it is in this emotional state that i can make the most growth in learning / practicing recovery.
10:54am : God brought me back. I re-read "on 'God Talk'" at url http://procrastinators-anonymous.org/node/4362. i took 10 min to reply to that thread. That was supposed to be short, but my browser is really slow (cuz of my horded tabs and windows). I put off a greater contribution to a designated break. But this first post will have to count for my break.
11:27am : It's been 22min since i last went off plan.
It's been 10h 18min since i last relied on self.
11:51am : "Yes and i will rejoice, for i know that thru your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance." - Philippians 1:19. Paul was talking about his imprisonment (scholars believe he was in fact released) but i can apply this to my deliverance from the bondage of this addiction. O God plese deliver me.
2:32pm : it's been 3min since i last went off plan. Thank God for infinite new beginnings.
It's been 13h 23min since i last relied on self. Keep my eyes fixed on God, not my failure.
11:07pm : it's been since 6:15 so 4hrs 52min since i last went off plan.
It's been since 6:15 so 4hrs 52min since i last relied on self. 530-615 was not good. no morbid reflection tho. I'm not off plan nor relying on self even tho i'm weak and tired. I'm having a hard time staying on plan, tho. and not thinking much about god (or self).

EleanorBE's Tuesday List
Hi all! I'm back after some weeks away from here. Somtimes I've done lists on paper and sometimes I've just ploughed on with whole-day tasks. Then I was a abroad for work for a week with very sporadic internet. But a big mistake not to post here when I could. Although I don't really think I've been procrastinating, I've been prioritizing quite badly and getting in some frantic states. Setting things out here really helps. So thanks for the starter RisingUp and here goes with Tuesday -
- Do some book checks if wake up early (am not setting alarm early, though, as am not very well so if I sleep a bit later that's a good thing)- no, didn't wake up early but slept well so that's good.
- Go in to work
9-9.30 - sort out equipment and catering for training
9.30-12 - book checks
12-1 - observe K's class
1-2 - meeting with K and M re MSc
2-3 - OH
3-4, X's writing time and more book checks
4.15 meet with K re her class
Oh...I haven't actually left any time for lunch here! So will have to take that to meeting with K and M.
