Hi Everyone! How was your week 26/52? 😃
Mine was filled with imagining the near future (3 months from today) and the distant future (5 months from today).
2022 Personal Goals
✅ Goal #1: Manage my binge eating disorder. Every day, I will track my calories to eat around 1500 calories a day. I will record what I eat and post it to this blog to help me better understand what causes me to binge eat.
❌ Goal #2: Write consistently. 5 to 7 days a week, I will read and follow My 2022 Writing Manifesto.
✅ Goal #3: Maintain my mental health. 5 to 7 days a week, I will sing three positive songs and sleep before 11:30 PM.
✅ Goal #4: Maintain my physical health. 5 to 7 days a week, I will meditate for 2 minutes, practice 25 minutes of yoga, and do 10 minutes of weight lifting or cardio.
✅ Goal #5: Read books to gain knowledge and new perspectives. 5 to 7 days a week, I will read for 30 minutes and I will write down my favorite passage/what I learned on this blog.
This past week, I enjoyed reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic and TJ Klune’s The House in the Cerulean Sea.
Just because you don’t experience prejudice in your everyday doesn’t stop it from existing for the rest of us.TJ Klune’s The House in the Cerulean Sea.
✅ Goal #6: Become more organized. 5 to 7 days a week, I will spend 10 to 30 minutes organizing.
✅ Goal #7: Become more physically active. Every week, I will do 1 physical activity like hiking, table tennis, swimming, etc.
This past week, I played table tennis for 4 hours. Forgot to take a picture though.
✅ Goal #8: Improve my listening skills: Every week, I will listen to one podcast or TED talk, and write down what I learned in 1 to 5 sentences.
I was intrigued by the work Jane does which is imagining the future and how to plan for it. Twenty years ago the iPhone did not exist, what’s going to happen in the next 20 years?
✅ Goal #9: Emulate Krista Tippet’s (Winner of the National Humanities Medal, Peabody Awards, Webby Awards) way of speaking. Every week, I will listen to Debbie Millman interviewing Krista Tippet and record a passage of Krista’s that I want to emulate.
❌ Goal #10: Remember my late father through cooking. Every week, I will post one recipe to this blog to remember him.
I realize that every week that I’m struggling more than usual with my eating disorder, I don’t want to think or write about food.
