Week #106: In Review

"Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing; every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves, 'This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught!" ~ Thomas a Kempis

I had a fantastic week.......*pats himself on the back*.

I ate well, I exercised every day for +25 mins (1 1/2 hrs on Saturday), and I met most of my mental health guidelines as well. I struggled a bit this week with my To-Do List, but this was due to a few different reasons:

1. The organizing of the garage is a larger project than I expected and it's not much fun.
2. I couldn't set-up the CD racks b/c I can't find some of the hardware from when we moved.
3. I didn't spend enough time tackling the list.
4. When #2 happened or I became frustrated with #1 I should of moved onto another list item, instead of say......messing around with my blog.

I didn't allow for 1 day of rest....but I did take it much easier on the Sunday, so I'm not as worried about that one.

This week I would like to focus a bit more on remembering to eat snacks between meals. I was about 50 - 75% successful this week, but there's definitely room for improvement. It's really more about making it consistent enough to be part of my normal routine, or pattern forming.

This week I would also like to put in at least some focus into reading my book on meditation.

Besides that if I manage to continue the success of last week, I'll be happier than...

I hope everyone else had a great week!
