This post contains affiliate links. This week was a doozy. Remember how the girls had each had a cold recently that left them down and out for two full days and then at about 50 percent for two days after that? I thought I had missed out, but last week, starting on Sunday, the cold got me. Most of last week I was operating at about 50 percent. The good news is that I’m feeling much better now, and so far (fingers crossed) my husband seems to have escaped the cooties.
My Goals for the Remainder of 2023:
Take 750,000 Steps: 41% Accomplished
I walked 56,443 steps this week for a total of 312,454 steps total. I love using my treadmill desk to watch YouTube videos and practice my Japanese while walking.
Have 22 Weight Lifting Sessions: 4.5% Accomplished
No weight lifting session this week. So far, I’ve had one weight lifting session.
Have 22 Yoga Sessions: 4.5% Accomplished
I did not do this. So far, I’ve had one yoga session.
Follow a Low Fodmap Diet to Treat SIBO for the next 4 to 6 weeks: 0% Accomplished
I bought a book on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, which is supposed to work well for SIBO. I’ll try that this week. In addition, I’m using my FoodMarble to monitor which foods cause fermentation and avoid those foods. So far, a major culprit is apple, which is my favorite fruit. Actually, at this point, almost all fruit gives me trouble, except blueberries, kiwi, and bananas.
Make an Appointment with a Heart Doctor: 0% Accomplished
I had my last heart doctor appointment in Arizona 18 months ago. I’m supposed to go in for yearly monitoring, so I need to find a heart doctor here in New York, especially since most specialists here have long wait times.
Create a Work Routine
Making progress, but I still don’t have a work routine I love. My husband and I have been discussing this at length. I have some new ideas to try. I hope to share with you soon.
Get Two Weeks Ahead in My Posts for Work: 0% Accomplished
Maybe this would have happened if not for my, but there’s always next week.
Get 4 posts Ahead in My Blog: 25% Accomplished
I am one post ahead. Progress!
Read 2 Books: 65% Accomplished
Study Japanese for 1,500 Minutes: 6.6% Accomplished
I didn’t study Japanese at all this week. So far, I have a grand total of 100 minutes over the last five weeks. I need to really amp this up if I’m going to meet this goal.
So far, breaking my goals into quarterly goals seems to be work. I feel inspired rather than defeated as I did when I saw all of my yearly goals that I didn’t/couldn’t accomplish.
