Goals: Update

Earlier this week I set a handful of goals that I wanted to accomplish. Here's an update (and more):

1. I will start running again. Check. I ran not only once, but twice. I ran on Thursday and then again on Friday. Both days the runs went well, but my shins are (yet again) feeling bad. Today I am going to get yet another pair of sneakers and see if that'll do the trick.
2. I will make dinner at home at least four times this week. I only made dinner at home three times this week. Too many other social plans. Which helps me see that I need to cut back on planning things that revolve around food and plans which get me out of the house at dinnertime.
3. I will go to yoga twice. Check. Managed to make it to YAS for class on Tuesday and yesterday, Saturday.
4. I will have one "Molly Only" night. Nope, I didn't make this happen. Steve's been sick so he hasn't been going to class, and my twin got a gig in England for a I've been trying to make the most of my time with her. Not really good excuses if you ask me. So another thing I need to make an effort to make happen in the upcoming week.
5. I will write in my journal about what I'm feeling and thinking and I will talk with Steve. Check. Although my conversation with Steve was dragged out over four different occasions, we both were able to get some things off our chest and get back on a good path. Which feels really good. I should still write more in my journal about it.

Then during my therapy session on Wednesday, I had a few more things to work on:
1. Behavioral Experiment- buy a pair of shorts and wear them. I know to some of you reading, this may not seem like a big deal. But for those of you who know me...can you remember a single time you saw me wear a pair of shorts? For most of you, probably not, for some of you, maybe not since 1999. Anyway, I did pick up a couple pair of shorts and wore them a little bit around the apartment on Friday and might just wear them out today kayaking.
2. Put some cliff bars (or other type of food that can help curb my hunger and prevent me from eating a less than ideal meal just because I'm starving) in my car and some of the common bags I carry around. "Just in case." I put two cliff bars in two different bags and in the glove compartment of my car. This way, if I'm starving and find that I'm about to make a decision because I'm starving and need to eat something right away, I can eat a cliff bar and ward off that nasty habit of mine.

And that's where things stand right now.

I'm leaving shortly to go kayaking for this morning. And then I'll reward all my hard work and activity by spending most of the afternoon doing nothing while sitting in a beach chair overlooking the ocean!
