Hi Everyone! How was your week 18/52? How did you do on your weekly goals? This post is super delayed but still posted. 😃
2022 Week 18/52 Personal Goals
✅ Goal #1: Manage my binge eating disorder. Every day, I will track my calories to eat between 1200 to 1700 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 of the week on this blog.
This past week, I was reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic, Melody Beattie’s Codependent No More, and Liv Constantine’s The Last Mrs. Parrish.
✅ 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 speed walked for 1 hour and treated myself to sitting in the park.
✅ 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.
This past week I listened to Kelly McGonigal: How to make stress your friend | TED.
Psychologist Kelly McGonigal asks us to view stress not as the enemy but as a friend. That new research suggests that stress is bad for your health only if you believe that to be the case. If you view stress as helpful then it doesn’t harm your health.
✅ 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.
