Closer to The Mountain


Just a quick post to see how I moved myself closer to the mountain this week (this concept explained last week in case you missed it)…

1. My professional health

  • I met my weekly writing goal of 7,000 words, and exceeded it by 100
  • I blogged every day
  • I applied to 3 new jobs and went on an interview. I also had a revelation that maybe I’m better off staying where I am … but more on that later

2. My personal health

  • I had brunch with one friend, dinner with two more, and had a cousins’ night
  • I checked a few things off my life to-do list

3. My physical health

  • I got a massage
  • I did cardio
  • On some nights, I got enough sleep

So I did okay. But I could do more.

  • I didn’t apply to any freelance writing assignments. Perhaps I will use my day off tomorrow to do so
  • I did not find a new yoga studio
  • I did not do cardio more than once
  • I ate and drank too much
  • I did not get enough sleep every night
  • I didn’t cook, or spend a ton of one-on-one time with my boyfriend

So I really need to exercise more, watch my food/booze intake, get to bed every single night at a reasonable hour, and break into the freelance world. And find a damn yoga studio with hours that suit me.

Does anyone else do stuff like this? If so, I’d love to hear about your mountain and how you’re moving yourself closer!

I saw a brilliant idea somewhere, and I wish I could remember where so I could give the author credit…
