warriors week3

Life's Journey with a Smile

this week's questions:
  1. What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?
  2. Do you find that your motivation/mood changes in the winter? If so, what do you do to help/avoid it?
  3. Do you have any advice for your fellow challengers on staying on task?
  4. What day{s} of the week/month do you find it difficult to stay on task/motivated?
  5. Fun Question of the Week: If you were going on a road trip {longer than a day} who would you take with you? Where would you go?
question 1: i got my ass to work on time four days out of five. i had to skip a couple morning showers, but i did it :p i wrote two out of three letters over the weekend. i realized how little i have to say to some of my friends, which is probably why i haven't talked to them in ages. it's sad when it seems there's little or no substance left in your conversations. although, i'm not sure i care to inject more in. the status we have is comfortable, and i don't want them any closer. i know that sounds sad and unfriendly, but it's the truth. i did zero book reading, but i finally got my google reader down to zero. i was also struck with inspiration for blog posts last monday. i have the next two weeks covered after whining the other day. i'm probably going to do the "accents vlog" this week to get another post in :)

question 2: in non-weight related motivation, i say no. i practically never want to read for class or get out of my jammies any given day of the week. i have accomplished a couple things in the last few weeks that require minimal motivation. cleaned out a good portion of the tivo, baked cupcakes and played with my budget. i've slowly shifted my schedule to sync with my upcoming class schedule change (one more week of fun!), which takes little effort but maximum motivation in the mornings. it'll require less motivation as time passes though because it'll just be routine. i like having routines

question 3: have a routine. in my experience, the more regularly you do something, the more likely you'll keep doing it... except class stuff. that always drops off because i'm not the best student. meh. get up at the same time, work out at the same time, eat at the same time. if i keep doing the same things repeatedly, it requires less motivation to get started

question 4: days starting with the letter s. sundays more so than saturdays. saturdays have always been my get shit down around the apartment days, but sundays are for lazing and football. now that the season is winding to a close (ack football withdrawal), i'm hoping to get in the habit of doing stuff. i'm making sundays my library day. four hours at the library and two hours at home for homework. the rest of the day is for tivo and fun reading. we'll see how long it lasts ;)

question 5: roomie road trip! we haven't really started planning, but neal and i are going on a road trip this summer. the last bestie hurrah! ...well it won't really be our last hurrah, but it'll be the biggest/longest of our friendship. we don't want to let this chance pass us up just because we thought we had plenty of time

{this little birdie [get your own] brightens my sad little cube. also reminds me of my twitter addiction ;)}

my progress plus all the weekly questions on skinny (goals 1-4) and desultory (goals 5-10)
