so during caseys last stream he talked a bit about setting goals for this summer (or winter in my case) and i mentioned how hard i find to stick to goals and schedules that i make. i think part of it is because i live alone, so the only person im letting down and disappointing is myself. im the only one that sees the mess inside my house, or if i do excersise or not, or if i get enough sleep, or even if i get out of bed at all that day. so i figured, maybe, if i put stuff on here, so other people can see it, maybe ill be better at following through with it. sorry if its not allowed, i just though maybe it would help.
so, the 2 major goals that i want to acheive is to lose weight and to get my house clean and tidy and keep it that way. the weight problem is a big one, as i am very overweight, and the is a family history of diabetes. i havent always been overweight, but when after getting chronic fatigue syndrome i wasnt able to excersise as much, at the start i had several months where i was barely able to leave the house, just walking to get the mail left me weak and light-headed. i used to go hiking at least once a month, and on walks around town daily, before i got sick.
the house problem is the one im most embarrased about. i currently rent my house from my parents. they dont come around often. really im the only person that sees inside my place. i could blame the mess on my chronic fatigue syndrome, or my depression or anxiety, but i dunno, it just sounds like excuses. it sounds like laziness. i dont have kids, and i dont work long hours. i should be able to keep my house clean and tidy. evrywhere is a mess. well, almost. i did manage to actually get the dishes done and the fridge cleaned out a couple days ago. but my bedroom i can barely move around in with stepping on stuff. clothes, trash, craft stuff, papers and magazines, etc. the dining table is covered in junk. theres only 1 chair in the living room that doesnt have stuff on it. bathroom and laundry are a mess and the spare room is just full of boxes of all sorts of stuff. you can barely move in there too.
i hve made progress on these things before. at one stage i actually only had 1 room left to get tidy. but ive never been good enough to actually get it done. i hope that by making a schedule and putting it here where other people can see, maybe ill be able to do it right this time.
so anyway, here it is. its not like every second of the day planned out, just some stuff to get me started.
8am- get up, shower etc, breakfast and medication
10am- walk around the track at the park
1:30pm get ready for work (mon, tues, wed)
2pm leave for work (mon, tues, wed) or tidy something in the house (thurs, fri, sat, sun)
6pm home from work
7pm cook dinner
9pm switch off tech (computer, phone etc)
10pm lights out, sleep.
so yeah, thats what ive got so far. i dunno if its any good or not, id appreciate advice if im doing it wrong. sorry if this isnt alloowed, or if its the wrong place to put it or whatever. i just dont know what else to do. i dont want to keep messin this up and failing. ive gotta be better than that.
