Zaethe: do-over

A new year approaches

time for a do-over.

 

 

The big plan for 2020 is to start making my life work for me, instead of just kind of floating by with occasional surprises when something goes the way I hope it will.  I'm very good at the passive apathy thing.

 

So no big preamble, just straight into it.  There are lists.  It's going to be longer than I expect anyway.  

 

Morning Routine

Things I need to establish in my morning routine this challenge.

 

  • Wake up time (8am)
  • Get out of bed (asap, not two hours later)
  • Make bed
  • Eat breakfast

 

Night Routine

Things I need to establish in my night routine this challenge

 

  • Shower
  • Wash face & moisturise
  • Take meds
  • Bed time (10pm)
  • No phone after bedtime

 

Cleaning List

House things that need to be done in order to establish a cleaning routine

 

  • Dishes
  • Wipe down counters
  • Sweep/mop kitchen
  • Clean stovetop
  • Unpack and organise CDs
  • Clear trash from living room
  • Vacuum living room
  • Vacuum spare room
  • Clear trash from bathroom
  • Wipe down surfaces
  • Clean shower walls
  • Sweep/mop bathroom
  • Clean toilet
  • Clear trash from bedroom
  • Rearrange bedroom furniture
  • Vacuum bedroom
  • Do laundry

 

Food and Eating

Things I need to do to get my eating settled

 

  • Establish a food budget
  • Establish a meal plan that avoids all my allergies
  • Establish a regular shopping list

This will be done by the 1st, after that it will be as simple as eat the meal plan.

 

 

 

By the end of this challenge, the goal is to have all of these things crossed off as established.  A routine point counts as established if I repeat the point consistently for three weeks.  Long time yes, but I know what I'm like, takes a while to drum things into my skull.

 

This is all simple stuff that I need to incorporate into my daily life in order to build some foundations to work with.  I have a terrible habit of zero-ing in on a single point and saying "Well I can't do anything until I get this addressed" as a reason to do nothing.  The current one is physiotherapy.  But I'm not currently even on the list for the clinic doc wants to refer me to, because she's waiting to hear from the specialist.  And then there's no saying how long that waiting list will be.  My life doesn't go on hold while I do this, it's living itself out without me.  I turn 32 on new year's eve, and I can't say I've got as much as I would like to show for it.

 

Also, since it is my birthday on new year's eve, I'm kicking off my challenge on the 1st.  Because birthdays are birthdays.  And I know my Dad is baking a cake.  It's his first time baking.  I'm gonna eat the shit out of that cake.

My Dad has been an ass about many things over the last few years, it was almost impossible to get him to acknowledge that the issues I have were real until I went to the specialist and got my diagnosis.  

 

Now I just learned that he's making gluten free devil's food cake (from a box) for me for my birthday, because I'm allergic to wheat.  I'm going to ignore that it contains milk and soy, which I'm also allergic to, because he's made a huge effort that's very unlike him.  This makes me inordinately happy.

That sounds like big progress for your dad! Sucks that he wouldn't listen before, but at least now he is making some effort to acknowledge the truth of your health needs.
