So I decided that Sunday seemed like a good day to post a weekly round up. I don’t tend to do too much on a Sunday and I don’t work, so that seems like the most likely day to find five minutes to do something like this.
Obviously this first week’s weekly round up, is really only since about Wednesday, given that the new year sort of causes a restart. This week I have:
– Redesigned my blog. I’m pretty pleased with how it looks now and its far more functional that before. I’ve also found that this renewed interest in my blog is making sure I post fairly often and I’m trying harder to network, gain followers and find new blogs to read myself.
– Started my weight loss journey. While I haven’t consciously started to diet yet (that begins Monday), I’ve taken my head out of the sand when it comes to my weight. I’ve actually weighed myself twice – once the day I did my scales review and again the day afterwards. My actual official start weight for this diet is 12 stone, 10 and a half pounds.
– Deal with my debt. This is something I’ll be posting about separately, but again comes down to taking my head out of the sand, facing the reality of the situation I’m in and trying to do something about it. I’ve also started my silly saving project with my first deposit today.
– Read more books and watch more movies. I actually added a widget to my blog, to track the book I’m reading. I’ve just started on The Perks of Being a Wallflower, though admittedly I haven’t got very far yet. I’ve also hit my one movie a week target for this week, by accidentally watching The Final Destination (no 4). Terrible terrible movie.
I head back to work tomorrow which I’m not going to lie about, is making me feel pretty sick. The girls go to their dad’s to sleep tonight and for the day tomorrow, which is good as they’re not back to school until Wednesday but I know its going to make this evening even harder than it would be anyway. Today I plan on just trying to relax and enjoy my last day off (till next weekend at least) while at the same time making sure I get on top of some much needed washing!
Hope your January is off to a great start!
