It’s my third week of Building Rome, and, even though I’m a little behind my Monday original start date, I have good excuses. Green Embers puts together this little blog-fest, where we chose goals one week, and then the next week report on those goals and set some more goals. This week’s theme is “Imagination, No Passport Required.” I have a real lack of imagination at the moment, and the rules of the blog-fest are flexible, so my rules are going to be able taking care of me. Being kind to Rosa.
Last Week’s Goals
1) Take Kizzie for a walk at least three times for at least 15 minutes this week. Needless to say, this didn’t happen. I was in a really bad place last week and walking the Kizz was the furthest thing from my mind. Maybe next week!
2) Set aside time each morning to read in the devotional book that my mom’s best friend, Glo gave me. Nope, this didn’t happen either. I have a really hard time reading or concentrating on anything in that state.
3) Continue to not smoke. I decided (and my pdoc and treatment team at the hospital agreed) that I need to be in a better place to do this, and that trying to do this mid-cycle and with a hospitalization stuck in the midst was not a good time. It will still be a long-term goal.
Four Things of Always
1) Take meds as prescribed. Check!
2) Take care of Kizzie’s needs. Check! (alth0ugh Grandma t0ok care of and spoiled little Kizzers all week while I was in the hospital.
3) Take care of personal hygiene daily. I am pleased to report that I have finally taken a shower every single day of the week, including when I was in the hospital. I actually look forward to it now. Who woulda thought?
4) Work on healthy eating. I didn’t do too badly at this, mostly because I was in the hospital although they have great food there.
Four Things of Do or Die
1) Keep up with my “always list.” Routines and rituals and taking care of my self are a must right now.
2) Spend at least two hours a day outside, no matter what.
3) Walk Kizz for 10 minutes every day this week.
4) Finish getting house in order. It’s very clean, but a bit scattered in places.
