Tiny Oak finds Hobbity balance at home.

Recommended Posts

Hi, Tiny Oak aka Kristin here! I'm a college instructor living in southeast Iowa.  As far as physical activity goes, I enjoying cycling, belly dance, yoga, meditation, bodyweight exercise, and weightlifting.  I am slowly adjusting to my new life as a mom.  Lil Acorn is currently 3 months old, and will not sleep on a non-human surface. I'll try to update more than last time, but it has to be during stolen moments while I'm away or she's asleep, or when there's someone else around to help me.  I also have a furkid, a dachshund named Ajax.

Other current interests include BEER (I missed sooo many releases over the last year of teetotaling!), Game Grumps, reading fantasy books, watching fantasy and scifi, crocheting, knitting, other crafts, gardening, outside chores.

This will be my second quest, and I hope to grow strong with all of you!

 

This time, we're venturing through Middle Earth and appreciating the comforts of home like a Hobbit.  (Yes, I may be a Wood Elf, but those Hobbits have the right idea.)  I'm already rather Hobbity: Sit me down by a warm fire with a good book and a mug of beer and you'll find a happy Oak!   I'm currently content about most of my diet and fitness goals, but other areas of life have been bothering me.  Time to LEVEL UP!

 

I'm going on an adventure!


MAIN GOAL: Practice life balance.

QUEST GOAL 3: Hoard my riches!

- No buying anything unnecessary without checking the budget first - Set aside money for a bike

QUEST GOAL 4: Clean it up!

- Put away 5 things and get rid of 5 things every weekday.

-Take out the damn trash bag when it gets full, instead of putting it next to the trash can.  Or delegate the task.

-Bring dishes downstairs from nursery nightly.

Subject to revision after I figure out this points thing.  Or not.  I like points, but the quest is bigger.

How are you doing with all of that? 

 

I'm concerned about putting away 5 things or getting rid of five things... It seemed like a high goal until you factor in food dishes or takeout wrappers.  (It's probably more nuanced than that?)

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.

Hi TinyOak (Kristen), 

 

So glad you are here for your second question. How is everything going? 

 

I am curious, what is your means of evaluation for your Quest Goal 3: Hoard Your Riches! the goal is awesome and I am wondering what you do to measure it and how do you load the data into the quest tracker. Share your secrets please! 

 
QUEST GOAL 3: Hoard my riches!
- No buying anything unnecessary without checking the budget first - Set aside money for a bike
- Specifically, no buying new beer without checking my cellar and remembering that I'm using bike money to buy beer.
 

 

I love the writing goal. You and I seem to be on a similar path. 

 

How did your first week go? Are you going to give an update for weeks 1&2 tomorrow? 

 

Sending peace and good vibes your way!
