Today (Sept 23rd) is the first of the 100 days left in 2021.
In those 100 days, I aim to:
1- Focus on screen time (yes again). Seems like a good time for me to resurrect Operation 100!
2- Eat better and work out consistently with the hope of making most of my wardrobe fit comfortably again by 2022. I am basically wearing 25% of my clothing right now and it’s getting old, and I hate feeling distracted by negative body image thoughts (sad but true). I recognize it’s mostly the eating. I just got into some really bad patterns over the past few months and I’m ready to let them go.
3- Work on bedtime alongside the kids with the goal of making it a mostly-calm, low stress routine. Some nights it currently is; last night (solo) I think I screamed “IF YOU LEAVE THE ROOM ONE MORE TIME YOU WILL NOT WATCH A SINGLE MINUTE OF SCREEN TIME THIS ENTIRE WEEKEND” after a lot of hijinks (mostly from G who got out of bed for the express purpose of squeezing out toothpaste all over the kids’ bathroom, including a $22 tube of Mi Paste that our dentist wants Cameron to use). Just . . . not the vibe I want to cultivate. At all.
4- Generally work on my overall awareness of time. I’m not sure I have it in me to time track for 100 days, but I am going to pay more attention to how I am using leisure time. (Item #1 will help with this I have no doubt.)
5- Keep work at work and really adhere to shutdown rituals. I only have one week of call during this next 100 days (so . . . 7%?) and thus for the most part I should be able to get my work done during the days, especially if I am focused and efficient.
A & C discovered partner kids yoga challenges on YouTube. You would think this would have gotten their evening energy out . . .
