You are Accountable! The lake is icy where you are, here it’s snowing all day, and all the night before. Looking forward to reading you weekly goals.

there is not much snow here, but it is still cold. Is it still snowing where you live?
Today I went for a walk, cooked vegetable curry, then worked for uni and did some very easy yoga.
So far this thread helped me to become more balanced and calm myself. But I still feel I am not productive enough. But at least it is a small progress.
My weekly goals:
– Most important things everyday: Work for uni + exercise / daily walks
– I want to work on project A, it is almost finished. Only the book cover, layout and printing is missing. This week I would like to work on the cover
– When I feel stuck with project A, I can work on project B, which is some sort of a sketchbook with watercolor paintings. It would be nice to fill up at least two pages.
– Cleaning: Clean my room properly once a week, daily 10 minute clean-ups
– Exercise: I would like to do more yoga, dancing or go for walks.
– Food: Eat less sweets and drink more water.
– For fun: Try out a new recipe and try out this dance workout I wanted to do for some time. Read in the evenings.
For now those are my weekly goals. I can see how it goes and reevaluate next week.
– Work for uni: make sketches for the cover
– Exercise or go for a walk
– Clean up for 10 minutes
– Have a water bottle next to my desk
That’s it for now. Until tomorrow!February 14, 2021 at 12:11 pm #374678
It’s not snowing here at the moment, just a few snow flakes here and there, but the ground/ roads are covered with thick snow. I wasn’t out in the snow yet, it would be nice to walk on the soft snow. You wrote clear and specific goals for tomorrow and the week to come. Until tomorrow!

today there was snow here! I didn’t expect any winter at all, so I am happy. Did you go for a walk in the snow?
Today I did my to-dos more or less. I only did half of the yoga practice and also ate some unhealthy things. I managed to clean for 10 minutes.
As for the book cover, I did start sketching and have some ideas now, but am not entirely satisfied. Tomorrow I want to work more on the sketches and maybe decide on one.
So or tomorrow I have the same goals as for today. Hopefully, I can concentrate better tomorrow. I will put my phone far away from my bed so that I don’t start my day mindlessly…
Have a good day and thank you for helping me out in my accountability journey!February 15, 2021 at 11:12 am #374698
Thank you and you are welcome. I did not walk in the snow yet but I will today. I am glad it rained at night and much of the snow melted. Have a good day yourself, enjoy the snow in your part of the world!
anitaFebruary 16, 2021 at 11:51 am #374745
the snow started to melt here too. Maybe now the winter is finished…
Today I am feeling more satisfied with myself. In the morning I saw my therapist. Everything was fine, but soon the therapy sessions will be over, which worries me a little.
Later I talked to my best friend on the phone, which made me feel motivated. After the call I worked on my sketches and am more happy with them today. I will continue tomorrow and am confident that I can finish the cover illustration this week. Maybe it will not turn out perfectly, but right now I am more about finishing my projects, so I can meet the deadline I have set for myself.
I also cleaned up and did 20 minutes of yoga. So I did not do too badly today.
For tomorrow, I want to continue to work on my projects, go for a walk and all of that.February 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm #374746
The snow here is almost completely melted. Glad you are Accountable!

today in the morning I went for a walk. The snow is melting, but the ground is still icy. So I have to be careful not to fall. I also saw the first snowdrops blooming. Spring is not far away!
I managed to work on my book cover again and the biggest part of it is done. Only one or two more days and I will be finished with it.
Overall I am satisfied with myself today… Only I wish to be faster and get more things done. But at least I am getting better at it.
– Do Yoga in the morning
– Start to work on my projects at 09:00
– Try out a new recipe
– Work more starting at 2 pm
– Clean up for a few minutes
– Eat no sweets

Accountable! You’ve been mentioning sweets- I happen to have the biggest sweet tooth, no one, and I mean.. no one in the whole wide world likes sweets more than I do (there may be challengers to my claim, I understand). Anyway I found a solution to my sweet tooth: using liquid stevia (zero calories, no fillers, 100% natural.. and very expensive).
anitaFebruary 18, 2021 at 1:24 pm #374817
thank you for your tip with the stevia! I might try it out, as I also have a big sweet tooth. Today I also didn’t manage to eat any sweets, but at least I did not binge eat like before… I don’t know why during the last few days I did often overeat.
Except for the sweets, I managed to do the things on my list. I started working in the morning a bit later than planned, but in the afternoon I started earlier. Still, I would like to learn to take myself more seriously and stick to my plans!
Today I finished my cover illustration, the drawing part that is. I still have to digitally correct the images and add typography. For that, I also have to learn some new graphic programs, as the ones we use at uni, are not affordable.
I felt really satisfied with my drawings! It is a good feeling to finish something and I did like the drawings. Even if nobody will ever care about my drawings, I plan to always continue. What else am I, without them?
The recipe I tried turned out o.K.I made some sort of miso soup with vegetables. It looked pretty and the taste was o.K. But the best thing was that I learned a new way of preparing tofu. It tasted really good and had a texture, I had never achieved before.#
Tomorrow is my workday, so I will take it easier with my goals. So I will either just work on project B, or scan all my illustrations for project A. I also want to quickly clean up and do a bit of yoga or walk home from work for exercise.
Until tomorrow!February 18, 2021 at 1:39 pm #374818
You are welcome, and accountable you are yet again!
anitaFebruary 19, 2021 at 1:26 pm #374919
today at work it was o.K., but I still struggle with my social awkwardness. I wish social interactions could come easier to me, but at least I have learned a few things now and have become more self aware. Sometimes I wish to just stay by myself to not make any more mistakes, but at the same time I miss human interaction so very much.
After work, I finished one painting for project B and did ten minutes of yoga: I did not clean up, but will clean my room more mindfully tomorrow. Also I want to work on project B, learn more about how to digitally edit pictures with the new software, go for a walk or do yoga.
But for now, I will go to sleep. Good night or a good rest of the day to you, anita!February 19, 2021 at 1:33 pm #374922
Accountable! Good night Lily, sleep well.
anitaFebruary 20, 2021 at 11:02 am #374986
it was more of a calm day for me today. In the morning I painted two pages for project B until the afternoon. Then I ate something, cleaned my room, painted some more and now did 30 minutes of yoga.
During the day sometimes I still felt anxious, but am now feeling better. I would like to take some time now to read a book just for fun…
Tomorrow I would like to do a weekly review, also exercise or go for a walk, paint and clean.February 20, 2021 at 11:19 am #374987
Accountable again! I hope you enjoy reading your book, just for fun.
