today was not such a productive day. At least I managed to paint 1 1/2 pages for project B.
Otherwise, I didn’t get much done. I ended up binge-watching a TV series… So I will do the weekly review tomorrow.
Also, I plan to not use distracting websites in the morning until at least 10 am. And I think it works better if I set some more specific goals for myself.
So I want to get up at 7, start working at 9 and in the afternoon at 2. I have to spend some time on the book cover (layout and editing) or at least try to figure out this new software.
Hope to do better tomorrow! And I hope you had a nice Sunday! Take care!February 21, 2021 at 2:51 pm #375040
A Sunday is traditionally.. “not such a productive day”, and yet, you are Accountable!

today I got up before 7 and went for a morning walk. It took longer than planned, so I could not start working at 9. But in the afternoon I did work on project A. It was easier than I thought to figure out the software, but I am not satisfied with everything.
Last week overall I think I did pretty o.K. I still wish that I was more productive. But I am doing better than before and this thread helps! Thank you for reading my posts.
1) Project A: I did finish the drawing of the cover, so I am pretty satisfied with myself. Now there is only the editing and layout left to do. I think I should first finish working on project A (and B), before working on another project. I did well enough on this.
2) Project B: I filled more than 3 pages, so I also reached my goals there! I still want to continue working on this project, whenever I become overwhelmed by project A.
3) Cleaning: I did well enough on this and cleaned most days. Right now my room looks a bit messy again, so I should pick some things up, after I am done with this post.
4) Exercise: I did o.K. Yesterday I did no exercise, but on most days I did a few minutes. Maybe I should do something harder, to release stress.
5) Food: I did not too well and ate a lot of sweets. But today I ate none and feel better in my body. Also, I cook healthy meals most of the time, it’s only the sweets that are the problem.
6) Fun things: I tried a new recipe, but not the workout.
What I would like to improve:
– I would like to reduce my internet consumption and not use distracting websites before 10 am
– Always get up at 7 during the week
– Work at 9 and then again at 2 and stick to those times
Goals for next week:
Mainly the same as last week, working on projects A and B and trying to go outside once in a while to stay grounded.
Tomorrow I would like to work on project A, get up at 7 and work for some time starting 9 am and 2 pm. Exercise or go for a walk and clean for a few minutes.
Thank you for taking the time to read and reply always. This thread is helping me to find some balance.February 22, 2021 at 10:15 am #375073
Accountable yet again! Your report is detailed and fitting a Monday, first day of the week. And.. you are welcome.

today I did better again. I started painting at 9, then at noon cooked some food and later cleaned my room. In the afternoon I painted more and I have finished 1 1/2 pages for project B. I will still paint some more and then read or do yoga maybe. Also, I did not eat any sweets today!
I still did not manage to stay away from the internet though, but at least it did not keep me from painting.
Tomorrow I would like to follow the routine again of painting at 9 and at 2. I write it here because it will motivate me to actually do it: I have to work on project A at least for a few minutes.February 24, 2021 at 10:06 am #375173
Accountable for Wednesday, accountable every day!

today I did not stick completely to my schedule, but I did work on my projects in the morning and afternoon. Also, I worked on project A and understood some important things about the software.
Again, I did not eat any sweets and cooked a vegetable curry for the next days. I think I should really do yoga today, as I have neglected exercising in the last few days. Yesterday I talked on the phone to my sister and best friend, so there was also no time for it. But the good thing is, I can talk openly to my sister and my friend and it makes me feel better.
Tomorrow I would like to scan my illustrations for project A.February 25, 2021 at 10:49 am #375216
Accountable for Thursday as well!

today at work everything went o.K., no major problems. Only sometimes I am tense and I worry that I make others uncomfortable, that I make them feel like I judge them or something. But overall, it was fine.
After work, I managed to scan my drawings and started to edit them. I did so for about two hours. So I was very productive today and can be proud of myself.
Then I talked for a while to my new roommate and she is very likable. We could talk well and I feel good, like I am o.K., like I can get along with people. Only when I doubt myself things go wrong. How sad that I doubted myself so much that I ended up hiding in my room for months at the dormitories! That I thought all these bad things about myself and mistrusted myself so much! But I am starting to feel more like I am o.K.February 26, 2021 at 12:12 pm #375248
Oh, I forgot to talk about tomorrow. I would like to stick to my usual routines. It would be good to go for a walk, work on project A, clean for a few minutes.
Hope you have a good day! Until tomorrow!February 26, 2021 at 12:41 pm #375252
Accountable again! Sticking to your usual routines tomorrow (and every day, as much as possible) is an excellent idea, says I.
anitaFebruary 27, 2021 at 12:19 pm #375357
you are right, routines are helpful! So far, I haven’t got them down completely, but I am working on it.
Today I started working on editing my pictures at 9 and have finished most of them now. Only three are missing. In the afternoon I painted some more but was less focused. My head made up some weird theories and that took away some time. But now I am feeling calmer again.
Tomorrow a walk is desperately needed. I have skipped it for some days and now I notice it. Then I will work more on project A, hoping to complete editing my drawings. Some of them I am not so content with (others I am very content), but I will concentrate on finishing.
It is also my turn to clean the flat and I want to do a weekly review again.
Have a nice day and thank you for reading!February 27, 2021 at 12:49 pm #375360
Accountability on Saturday and every day. You are welcome and have a restful night!

today I started working on my project at 9, then at noon, I started cleaning, and later I worked more on project A. It looks like it won’t take me that long anymore to finish it. It will be a relief. The topic of it was also quite dark and now I am feeling a bit… strange about it. It was the illustration of a gothic novel / short story. In the future, I want to start working on lighter topics!
I was quite productive today, but I skipped exercise or going for a walk. Maybe I should just do yoga first thing in the morning, even if it is just for 10 minutes.
The weekly review will be postponed until tomorrow, as it is getting late and I am feeling a bit tired. But I would like to stick to my routine as best as I can and work on my projects.
Until tomorrow.February 28, 2021 at 11:51 am #375372
Accountable for Sunday! Yoga “just for 10 minutes” is good enough- it doesn’t take long for a few stretches to make a big difference.
