Recommended Posts

I've realized this last challenge was an excellent exercise for me in maintaining balance soooo I am going to keep mostly the same goals for this round! NOW WITH MORE CAT GIFS!! :D!!!!

 

 

 

Goal 1: EXERCISE

giphy.gif

Maintain exercise plan for maximum happiness but NOT into oh hey where did my life go? territory. Parameters: work out at least 3 x per week

 

 

Goal 2: DOWNTIME & FRIENDS

I+would+dnd+this+you+rp+as+a+cat+you_969

Have AT LEAST one evening off during weeknights in order to hang out with friends OR cook stuff/ downtime whatever I need, and at least one day a weekend with at least a 6 hours IN A ROW chunk of downtime/friendtime.

 

 

GOAL 3: ADULTING

 

5702301026dcf8ab8d0fc52a97750681.jpg

 Dedicate at least 2 hours per week to adulting pursuits! (Does not need to be in a row.) Cleaning, reorganizing, meal prep, anything adulting related is fair game!!

 

 

GOAL 4: HEALTH

I still never got around to scheduling my dentist appointment before the end of summer...sooo I am keeping this goal just with one thing.. MAKE THE DAMN DENTIST APPT ALREADY!!! Hahhaha

 

 

Life Goal- BALANCE!

When I first read this I thought balance goal, that's cool, wonder what sort of balance drills she's going to do. Then I realized that you said LIFE balance. Whoops. 

 

How do you cope or deal with re-balancing an established plan? I always have issues with this and would love to hear what you do to help maintain balance.

I dare you to do it at lunch or during a break tomorrow, and in return I will hatch my 5k Pokemon egg. Current progress is only 0.3 km, so that's a good bit of walking. :) My phone doesn't do screenshots, but I guess I could take a picture of my phone with the tablet... I'll figure it out.

For me it is all in realizing when I am overwhelmed and that something isn't working. Rather than keep struggling to meet a goal that is way stressing me out (or if the rest of life gets cray making my original plans NOPE) I don't beat myself up about it and I dial back on things.

 

I am a notorious overbooker/ I'm REALLY good at filling my entire schedule, but I'm trying to be proactive about dialing back BEFORE I get to the "Oh god oh god what have I done AAAAH SOOO BUSY" point.

 

I am soooo still learning how to manage my schedule and do things but not DO ALL THE THINGS to the point where I don't have time to think or to spend any time with friends and family or anything etc!

If you make attempts but can't set up the appointment, I won't loophole out of it. I have eggs not even in the incubators yet and I'll take another long walk tomorrow. :)

Today in LOLOL balance?

 

I have agreed to do 2 weeks of both Tuesday and Thursday rehearsals...and I think for the next batch of rehearsal bits I am going to need to do T/R again and then again for the section in which *I* am having to teach my choreography soooo, so much for only Tuesday dance rehearsals. WOOPS.  (To be fair this isn't a huge impact as Thursdays weren't going to be rest nights -- I was planning to go to dance class for fun vs dance rehearsals.)

 

I've also agreed to some Friday rehearsals for 3 weeks in October, and a full Saturday rehearsal one weekend...soooo yeah. I am keeping Wednesdays free and most Fridays though so, I think making 2 exceptions so I can be in a few pieces is fine. (Last show I did something like...6?? pieces that were done entirely in outside of regular class time rehearsals. SO MUCH DANCE SO WOW.) I only have the one planned Saturday rehearsal ever for this show and I am keeping my Sundays free (with the exception of tech week leading up to show weekend when I will LIVE there because yeah that is not avoidable!!)

 

All in all this show is going to get a little nuts because we are SO CRUNCHED for time but it will be OK! Our show is the first weekend on December...meaning we do not get ANY of December to really do any work, and it was a late start (we just started last week vs in August) sooo yeah... just shy of 2 months to create an entire dance production from scratch! We will make something good but it is definitely not going to be as long or as complicated as the last one! I am also SOOO HAPPY to be stepping into choreographer hat again! I am co choreographing a piece with a friend.

 

Anywhooo I could talk dance and choreography all day. End ramble! :D

Following! Love all the cats. 

 

Dentist is the worst! But GO! I didn't go to the dentist for a couple of years because I didn't have insurance and when I finally went they were like "yeah...you have ten little cavities all between your teeth..." The same thing happened to my sister; I guess that's what having braces and a borderline incompetent childhood dentist will do to you! I would be horrible about going to the dentist now except they always ask when I'm there if I want to set up my next appointment for six months. For some reason I have a weird phobia about calling doctor offices to make appointments, so I'm grateful they make it so easy.

They actually did do that I think...whenever I last went like a year and a half??  Maybe longer? Ago. But I kept cancelling and rescheduling and then I emailed them to try to book an appt and they'd call me and then I'd get swamped in work again and not get back to them etc. Faiiiiiiiiil!

 

I'm hoping I don't have a ton of cavities but my teeth are very prone to those even if I am cleaning properly. Ugh! I guess certain people's saliva makes them more prone to cavities. And then you have people like my brother who never get them (but he has gum issues instead which I have never had a problem with.)

 

This time I could have done the online form thing but since I was so terrible about calling them back last time I didn't want to be THAT patient again. Lol.
