Having a plan and implementing one are two very different things. This past week was more challenging than I anticipated, mostly because I’d failed to plan for my obstacles. In addition, I traveled to Chicago over the weekend for a training, and the hotel's weak internet connection made it impossible to get any work completed.
Here is my breakdown from week 1.
Over the past few months, I've been slowly working on some big projects, but with looming deadlines and no room for procrastination I dived into them this past week. First, I spent most of my time watching informational videos from a Creative Live class on travel photography. It has given me some great pointers, and I've especially enjoyed learning more about Lightroom.
This summer I am in charge of our first family reunion and a celebration for my parent’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. I love making photo books and so I wanted to create a combination yearbook/reunion book to help celebrate the event. I was able to pin down the design for the book, which has been plaguing me for the past few months. Now that I have a clear design focus, it will be easy to get the book finished.
I was 7/7 on recording my food in My Fitness Pal. Yeah--one win! The big struggle was exercise and hydration. I noticed that most days I drank ¾ of my water in the evening after work and very little during the day. Week 2 my goal is to get ½ my water drunk before 5:00 p.m. To address my exercise deficiency, I've already scheduled my gym visits for this week.
I've decided to redo this section (thus the updated graphic below) because I was already doing some of these things (prayer and scripture reading) and it wasn’t really much of a challenge. A friend asked me this week what I was doing to cultivate deeper relationships, and I realize that is something I haven’t addressed. Therefore, I added the new categories.
Now onto week 2!
