For opening week (of the school year) I am setting some hopefully manageable goals for myself. Neighbor and I met and talked about helping one another stick to weely (manageable) goals.
My first goal for opening week: Do Not Panic!
I have done most of the prep that I need to do. I will make sure that I have the week's schedule written down in number of places and then just make sure to be where I need to be.
Also: Maintain a Reasonable Sleep Schedule.
And finally: Embark on No New Projects.
Went for a thirty minute walk with elderboy this morning. It was nice. Will repeat again (maybe even tomorrow).
I have found that having a goal of trying to manage mood roller-coaster and also high blood pressure without medication if possible has made me think quite differently about the issues of sleep, exercise, sugar and routine.
Now it feels goal oriented. More of a goal than just "I want to be more healthy."
Grateful Crap: Thai food
took meds (but not until just now. need to fill my pill minder. Also probably get one that is big enough that my pills don't get stuck.
30 min exercise
little sugar (2 tsp over fruit)
