Habit-forming

Revisiting Goals 80 and 81

Acquire five new good habits and get rid of one bad habit.

The bad habit I got rid of was leaving my shoes all over the house. And this really stuck!!! I hardly EVER leave my shoes anywhere any more. Of course now they're all thrown into the closet cluttering up the floor, because I'm too lazy to put them in the shoe thingy, but still. I call that an improvement.

The good habits I've been trying to acquire...hm, I just hope I can even remember what some of them are. (Must I reread all my posts? Oog...)

1. I do know the first one was trying to get my makeup on before I leave the house, and though I've done well mostly, I have lately slacked off majorly. I credit the spiral-down with this development. I keep sleeping until the last possible minute, if not beyond.

2. And one I addressed in the last post, processing the mail every day.

3. Oh geez, flossing. I really need to do better with this one.

4. Getting over myself already. I've been trying to do better with this, but my reputation as a Wincer, at least, is still alive and well, according to my colleagues. And I don't think I did so well in one of my recent concerts; I got so worked up I started gagging when I started to sing. Not the solo stuff, thank God, just the ensemble stuff. And I hate those concerts where I have to go back and forth between solo voice and ensemble voice...it's really hard.

What's number five....? Maybe I didn't start one. I'm sure something will occur to me.

One thing that strikes me revisiting these goals--you really have to keep reminding yourself what your goals are.

Well, good going on the shoes!

I find I have to keep reminding myself of the same darn things. POSTURE is a big one, and I realize I was slouching as I was writing this.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

I'm sitting here with my throat sort of twitching as I try to imagine it. (I just finished supper--my diaphragm can't twitch.)

Good work on the shoes. On to the flossing. Healthy teeth are happy teeth!

Great job on the shoes. I need to work on the flossing too...brushing I'm huge on, but flossing..well it gives me something to work on. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

This is exactly why I don't set goals. That way, I'm never disappointed in myself! :)

(Kidding, really - I just didn't want to say the same thing as everyone else.... but hey, good going on the shoes!)

Maybe eating chili dogs is killing your memory.

I have been helping a little as I throw your shoes in the closet sometimes. Still you are much better.

I sure love you regardless of your goals.
