warriors week4

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. How are you feeling about the goals you set for yourself? Overwhelmed? Too easy? Just right?
  3. Do you prefer to exercise inside or outside?
  4. Are you a self-starter or do you need a little push?
  5. Fun Question of the Week: Why did you decide to start a blog?
question 1: i didn't quite finish my letters last week so i brought them to work. i wrote the last one and sent all three plus two birthday cards. quite a productive afternoon on the personal front... more scheduled posts and an impromptu vlog helped me meet my goal. i'm also doing some window shopping so there will be more planner posts forthcoming... reading. oh reading. i've gotten my reader to a comfortable simmer, but i'm still struggling with book reading. i just don't think about it :( ... welp, we had some snow/ice conditions a couple days so i went in later than usual. i may like mario kart, but i'm not in the mood for a real life ice course. i'm checking it off the list

question 2:i liked them at first, but now i'm really showing my lazy colors. it's only been a few weeks, and i can only half keep up. none of them are too easy or too hard. i just don't have 100% motivation to stick with them consistently. the letter writing is not hard at all once i start, but sitting down to write them takes some effort. and the books... ugh. that's all i can say. just ugh

question 3: inside

question 4: depends on the task. at work, i'm a self starter. give me all the pieces, and i'll hit the ground running. in school, i'm a lump. very little motivates me to go above and beyond. getting kicked in the proverbial face repeatedly by grad school does not bode well for my continued excellence as a student. everything else? i need varying levels of prompting, depending on what needs to get done and what mood i'm in

question 5: after starting skinnier bitch, i realized that i'd kinda outgrown my livejournal. i've had online diaries/journals since high school. and, at every stage, i moved to a new platform. something about growing as a person always seemed to warrant the change. i wanted to keep skinnier bitch strictly about my weight so i created desultory diversions. which spawned a twitter account, a tumblr and a secret blog. addicted to the internets, one might say :)

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