Day 4 of my new Journaling Journey and I am still enjoying the process. I’ve realized that from writing down my goals for the day, that sometimes I set the bar too high. For example, yesterday I wrote that I would take my daughter to school, work out for an hour, then come home clean for an hour and then go back to pick up my daughter from school, cook dinner, wash dishes, etc.
Ok, so this is what really happened: I dropped her off, I worked out, then I came home and passed out for an hour. I had to put off cleaning until after my daughter got home and had lunch. I got it done though – house cleaned from top to bottom and I’d worked out. I had accomplished what I didn’t think I could do in a relatively short period of time.
Also, the fact that my meals are all planned out, removes the stress of trying to think of something last minute or ordering take out. I also learned to write on my dry erase board that’s attached to the fridge – a menu for the day. There are no changes either – no additions or deletions. Stress free. I’m loving it so far.
