Yeah, it’s Sunday again and I’m checking my stats. I’ve got new goals as of the past couple weeks and while I am dialing things back a bit and trying not to focus on the details too much, it’s still good to keep a finger on the pulse.
Sleep.. 6 hours and 59 minutes per night. My new goal is 7 hours and 15 minutes and so I missed that by about 112 minutes total. Close, but not quite good enough. My main objective here is to boost the sleep in order to see if it makes a difference in my afternoon lethargy, tiredness, and inability to focus. It feels logical that there is a connection.
On a side note, the hormone boost therapy last year ended up being a huge waste of time and money (for me). I had multiple rounds with blood draws to check my levels about 6 weeks in between and I felt no difference. Of course the literature I read was full of success stories from women who said it changed their lives. My clinician was also having the treatment and during my second “boost” she said something like “some people report not feeling the benefits until after doing it for like 7 or 8 months. At the time I was 2 months and about $400 in on the deal and was like “no effing way”. For me it’s the money that’s the problem. I was already not cool with spending 400 for nothing and the thought of being a grand down was not worth the risk. Can’t I just get like half an hour more sleep each night? I sure hope so.
Anyway… I missed my step goal by just that much too. Just a weeee bit shy. 11.9K average per day and when I did the math, it would have only taken 50 more steps a day to hit the target of 12K per day. This week, with the move, I’ll certainly not have an issue hitting that.
I set new weight and body fat percentage goals for this year and only have 6 lbs to go. I wish I could target certain areas and it’s probably worth researching because I have one or two areas in particular that I’m not happy with. Whatever. It does not seem to stop me from eating all the things I love, like chocolate and lays BBQ potato chips. 😉
I logged 26 hours for work this week and did not meet my quota for hours for one of my projects. I have no excuse now because there is plenty to do. It’s just – my focus is elsewhere (hence the T-Minus countdown).
I wrote just a little this week and also started formulating a plan of action for my writing and reading goals for this year. Slow and steady wins the race on this one and right now it’s a lot of ideas in my head and not sure what will stick. I’m sort of in a holding pattern on everything until this move happens. Oh, did I mention, that’s in 6 days.
I’m not sure what I might be missing as it is now hours later and I’m super tired. Probably the best thing now will be just to let it go, and think more about everything tomorrow.
Peace and Love,
