Keeping myself accountable by posting my daily goals.February 7, 2021 at 10:35 am #374274
so I started the new thread!
Today I went for a walk, cleaned the house, and painted for a bit. The physical activities kept me from ruminating too much and now I am feeling o.K. Way less anxious than a few days before! Hopefully, I can also finally sleep better now.
Goals for tomorrow:
– Again paint / Work for Uni
– Go for a walk or exercise
Maybe I will go meet a friend tomorrow too.
Until tomorrow!February 7, 2021 at 12:44 pm #374277
Congratulations on starting your new thread, Accountability- I like the name you chose. Good to read your accountability for today, Sunday, Feb 7, 2021, and looking forward to your next Accountability post!

today I again did the things I wanted to do! I studied for uni and later did some yoga (only a few minutes). Without the thread, I certainly would have skipped the yoga. I already was thinking about just sleeping/ lazing around… But then I thought that I could do a few minutes and it worked.
This makes me feel so much better! I just wonder, can I keep it up? I already fear that in a few days, or weeks I will go back to my old ways. But no, I say to myself that I can do it!
It’s also nice, that I can see that I can stabilize myself and my emotions by my own efforts. Even though it would be nice to talk to a friend. But when I talk to them, I will also be more balanced, so the quality of the relationship could improve.
And I actually talked to some family members today. Recently, I am becoming more connected to them. Now I regularly talk to my sister, sometimes my grandmother. Today even my aunt called. It feels nice. I want to work on improving my relationships with people. Answer their messages more quickly and be more mindful. Unlike the mistakes, I made in the past…
For tomorrow I have pretty much the same goals as today: go for a walk and study for uni. It’s simple but it seems to work!
Thank you for reading and I’m glad you liked my thread name!February 8, 2021 at 11:14 am #374323
You are welcome, good to read your Accountability posts!

today I managed to go for my walk and work for uni. As of now, I have chosen more easy projects, but soon I will have to move on to harder ones.
For tomorrow I have the same goals as today.
This thread has been helpful so far. Otherwise, my own thoughts would have just tortured me nonstop. I still am feeling anxious, especially at night. But doing a least a little step a day really helps!
Until tomorrow!February 9, 2021 at 10:59 am #374379
I don’t want to shift the focus on this thread from what you want this thread to be, which is to hold yourself accountable by posting your daily goals. Therefore after submitting this post, I will post in your previous thread, for you to read if you want to.

thank you for your post in my old thread! I read it and will reply tomorrow. Sometimes I know that I am just o.K. the way that I am, but when my thoughts become very negative, it becomes hard to remember!
Today I am feeling much better. I went to my therapist and she really helped me. For the first time in about two weeks, I am feeling more relaxed.
Later I went for a walk. I saw a Eurasian oystercatcher, which I had seen only once before. It’s such a strange bird with its long beak and it makes me laugh a little. It was such a nice and sunny day. People were ice skating on a small pond, lots were going for a walk.
At home, I cooked and cleaned my room and it took me too long. At least I worked for uni a bit today, for about two hours.
Then I talked to my new roommate and she seems to be a good person and very friendly. I like her and am feeling hopeful that we will get along well.
For tomorrow I want to draw and go for a walk again. Some yoga will also be good, as my back hurts.
See you tomorrow!February 10, 2021 at 12:43 pm #374457
You are welcome. Eurasian oystercatchers, scientific name: Haematopus ostralegus (I googled). They need those beaks to open the shells of oysters and muscles, yum!
anitaFebruary 10, 2021 at 1:02 pm #374458
* correction, I meant mussels, yum! (lol).
anitaFebruary 11, 2021 at 11:39 am #374501
yes they like the mussels 😉
Today I managed to draw and do yoga… It doesn’t sound like much, but it is a small progress that I did a bit of these things every day.
Tomorrow is my only day of work, due to Corona. Last week the clients seemed upset with me, so I feel a bit worried. But, I will just go and see.
After work I would like to also work for uni and do some yoga, even if it was just for a few minutes.February 11, 2021 at 11:49 am #374503
I hope you have a good day at work tomorrow!
anitaFebruary 12, 2021 at 1:04 pm #374531
Today I did go to work, then painted for a bit and did 20 min of Yoga. I also danced to Mahalias song “Hide Out”, which made me feel confident and empowered.
Work was not bad at all. In contrary, I felt like my colleagues really like me and today I also did my tasks pretty well.
Tomorrow plans: go for a walk, work for uni, maybe yoga, journaling, reading…
Until tomorrow!February 12, 2021 at 1:11 pm #374532
Your daily posts in your Accountability thread are pleasant for me to read, refreshing and encouraging!
anitaFebruary 13, 2021 at 12:41 pm #374620
I am glad to know that my posts here are pleasant for you to read! Hopefully, I will be able to keep it up and continue to motivate myself.
Today I went for a walk early in the morning. It was very cold, the lake in my neighbourhood was even frozen. Some people were walking on it, but the police called them out to get off the ice…
After that, I had some hours where I was a little unproductive but in the afternoon I got some things done. So it is o.K., better than before.
For tomorrow I have the same to-dos as today, but I also want to write down some weekly goals. And I want to eat better tomorrow, as today I ate too many sweets.
Have a good day!
