Well the thirteenth month of 2020 just ended, ha ha. My husband and I decided that for once January did not last 34234234234 years, so I guess there is that! Some positives, my father has received both shots of the Pfizer covid-19 vaccine and my mom has had one shot of the Moderna vaccine. My dad hit two weeks post second shot yesterday, and this coming Monday my mom gets her second. A little breath is being released there!
For January I had a few intentions..
"The biggest that is taking the most effort is healthier choices time. My intention for January is to drink 100 ounces of water a day and hit 10,000 steps a day. So far I've checked that off every day. I am keeping accountable to myself by recording in Fitbit and posting my completed steps on insta. "
I made it about half way through the month and fell off the water bandwagon. I just have such a hard time drinking ANYTHING. It takes me all morning and sometimes afternoon to finish my tumbler of coffee and I just don't feel thirsty and chugging water is so gross to me. So bad bad bad me. I also fell off the bandwagon of posting my steps to insta halfway through the month but I finished January with at least 10,000 steps a day so go me!
"Reading wise I went through the year and put down some books that I want to complete during certain months, but with the caveat that if I get to them sooner, that's great, I just needed to work on clearing off some already purchased books and already chosen book club books.
For January, I need to complete Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlin, White Fragility, Nobody Will You This But Me (library dependent) and My life as Villainous by Laura Lippman. "
I finished all the books except Nobody Will Tell you Thinks BUt Me, but I am on the waiting list! I read nine books overall.
"I also have a list that I'm tackling throughout the year and my first big project on there was locating a spot for my file cabinet that was homeless for a year and going through boxes in our storage area to throwing stuff away. This I have started. "
I am almost done working on this. I just hate it. And I hate being in the basement. But I have thoroughly cleaned two cabinets and re organized the kitchen set up. Soooo some stuff got done!
Follow a couch to 5k plan I found. Do that M, W, F. Hit 10,000 steps on Thursday and Friday. Don't keep track on Saturday and Sunday.
Finish the filing cabinet.
Read - Brown Girl Dreaming, Homegoing, The Stonewall Reader, and The Dearly Beloved (library dependent).
