Doctorake starts over post divorce, 5 months of goals

Recommended Posts

FrequentSimplisticChamois-size_restricte

 

So since I am in a much better mental state these past couple months and have moved back into my house after the ex left I figure I can now focus on the next 5 months. I have a lot of cleaning/purging to do in my house of junk as well as clothes and kitchen things. I need to buy some more furniture and set some things up here and there. My back yard is an overgrown mess and the garden is a nightmare. The garage is ummm, did a hurricane already come?

 

So I am going to set some 5 month goals in here and refer back to them over the next couple challenges as well as challenge goals and weekly goals moving forward.

Well yesterday was not terrible but I got heavily side tracked prepping for the Hurricane which is now a weak rain storm. O well, I did at least get to go to the beach and see the reef at low tide.

Skipped yesterday from working OT and then trying to salvage some of my pool. It should clear up in a few days of overdosing chlorine, I got all the debris out.

 

Today is a go to work, run home, go to girlfriends for dinner out(outside patio social distanced and masks worn). So I won't be able to get much done.

It was about 40+ MPH winds and almost no rain. Knocked debris down but nothing major.

Yesterday was not too bad. I got all my "other" tasks done but was lazy with duolingo and meditation. Had an amazing Lamb burger with a feta sauce on it. Pool is starting to clear up, I should be swimming by the end of the weekend!

What did you think of the book? Any insights you learned that you can give us?

 

I thought it was pretty solid, there was a great lesson on blame vs. responsibility that applied directly to where I am emotionally and it has helped me continue to move on.

So out of the blue girlfriend wants to go on a vacation this weekend. So I got my buddies condo in Key West for Thursday through Saturday night. Destroyed my goals plan but meh, you only live once. 

 

Current goal, try to work as close to 40 hours Monday through Wednesday as possible. Monday I got 12 hours. Also eat clean these weekdays and in the keys eat reasonably paleo, maybe drop a pound.

 

That is all.

Fishing trip from last Friday on my boat with my best Florida friends who were super supportive of my situation.

They searched for drugs and illegal fish, the whole time we were hooked up with an 8 foot Bull Shark. Really good professionals.

So after two days I am at 22 hours. Not quite as much as I wanted to work but I am getting there. I also made an amazing Tuna bowl that I will post up. Raw Ahi tuna, seaweed salad, avocado, sesame seeds, soy sauce and sesame oil.
