JulietKitsch Gets Down to Business

This past year, I accomplished many of my bucket list goals. I lost 30 pounds. I bought my first home. I was not only cast in and performed a dream role, but I've been nominated for a theater award for it. It was, overall, an exceptionally positive year for me.

 

This year, I have four big goals for myself:

1) Health: I want to both lose another 50 pounds and to run a 5k.

2) Finances: I want to pay off debt and participate in the 52 week saving challenge.

3) Clutter: I want to drastically reduce my clutter.

4) Spirit: I want to explore techniques to reduce my anxiety and de-stress.

 

Each week, I will focus on one aspect of each of these four goals.

 

HEALTH:

- I will take a morning walk of 1+ miles at least 3 times a week.

- I will do other exercise at least three times a week.

- I will not eat grains/tubers after 2pm.

 

FINANCES:

- I will not purchase prepared food/ take out/ etc.

- I will save at least $50 toward my 52 week challenge

- I will not add new debt.

 

CLUTTER:

- I will remove at least 10 items a week from my home (not including garbage).

 

SPIRIT:

- Keep up with my bullet journal

- Meditate 2+ times a week.

 

I'm gonna crush this!

Update 12/31:

 

HEALTH: I took my morning walk of just over a mile this AM. I'm really loving this habit, and I've done it 5 days in a row!

 

FINANCES: No updates here.

 

CLUTTER: Yesterday I got rid of TWENTY SIX items from my house! Today I'm taking even more to the dump.

 

SPIRIT: I worked in my bullet journal a little bit yesterday.

Oh hi there! The dream role I played and was nominated for is Ursula. Total dream to play. I was just recently cast as a gender-bent Audrey II from Little Shop (if plants can be gender-bent). I've actually auditioned for Audrey II in the past and was totally dismissed because they were looking for a man. :P

 

 

Check In - 1/1!

 

HEALTH:

I went to the gym today and switched things up. I did a variety of things in my 50 minutes there, hopping on and off the treadmill and doing other exercises in between. Did some steps, recumbent stepper, and bodyweight exercises. My step tracker says I "traveled" over 4 miles while at the gym, though some of those registered steps were things like modified pull ups. Hey, I'll count it! 

 

FINANCES:

Totally bought my lunch out today. Boo. I was starving and weak post workout. 

 

CLUTTER:

Did some more decluttering this morning. I think I removed 4 or 5 items and rearranged others. 

 

SPIRIT:

Didn't bullet journal today, but that's okay. I did meditate for a few minutes this morning!

HEALTH:

I took time off today! I did a 5 minute yoga session in the AM to wake myself up. I'll do a longer flow tomorrow AM. I can't wait for the sun to rise a little bit earlier, because I am NOT going for walks an hour before sunrise in the AM :/. I loved my morning walks over the holiday break, so I'm bummed.

 

FINANCES:

Definitely bought dinner today. Oof.

 

CLUTTER:

I worked for about 16 hours today, so no decluttering for me.

 

SPIRIT:

Bought a new planner (yay) and did some meditation this morning.

That is so awesome!!  I, too, got to play a dream role last year.  I was Hallie Jackson in "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance".  I was nominated for Best Actress in a Non-Musical and won!  That was the highlight of 2018 for me!  

 

 

 

I want to take a page out of your book and do some decluttering myself.  My boyfriend, on the other hand, has a tendency of hoarding things...  "Don't get rid of that!!  I might use if for something!"

Congrats! Our awards ceremony is in a couple weeks. Eep. That said, my category is STACKED and I am friends with 7/10 nominees, so... I'm honestly just happy to be nominated.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!  And yes, being nominated is always a fantastic honor!

Check In:

I've been hit or miss over the last week. I haven't been working out as much since I went back to work after the break. I've also had some stellar days and less stellar days. In general I want to reaffirm why I'm doing these goals and what I want to see change.

That's the way to go. Keeping it realist to keep the progress on and then actually keeping the progress on when Life hits and we have to settle for less than perfection are the hard things to do.

 

Looking forward to reading more of the why and the what. :)

Legally bound to hug people in need.

 

Living life as a Druid is about walking with the beasts. It's about being scared, looking your fears in the eyes and going on anyway. Dread doesn't go away, you just learn to know it. It's still a beast, it still has fangs, but you walk among it.

Did the awards ceremony happen yet??  :D
