FFF 2.0 – 4-27(Yes, it’s Saturday)

I don’t know where the day went yesterday. I had a client at 8 am and a steady flow of meetings after that, which meant i had to do a bunch of stuff before my client, which meant here i am now. Not that it matters…

My step count is back at its usual levels, averaging 5,774. The range is wider then it used to be – my high was 11,035 while my low was 2,200. But I’m a bit irritated at myself for not doing better than that. I haven’t done very well with my morning rituals either and I’m eating too much. Glucose levels aren’t bad.

I haven’t been reading the Willpower book or the one about Things You Can Only See When You Move Slowly or whatever the name of it was. I started Brene Brown’s Braving the Wilderness, which is just as lovely as her books always are.

I finally got my nails done (6 or 7 weeks since last time, which is too long.) Having just read NJ’s post about her nails and Frank, I’m feeling some kind of way about the fact that I pay somebody to do mine. Not actually guilty, but maybe a bit inadequate on the girly side? True confessions, I never succeeded at rolling my hair on cans either, and all the girls did that back in my day. But I got my first pedicure probably 20 years ago and never looked back. I used to color my own hair until I accidentally turned it goth black and I haven’t done that since either.

Anyhow, I think I’m inching my business marketing plan forward. It’s not like the week was a complete waste.

My house is kind of a mess – too much stuff just piling up around me. I tend to let that happen and then it starts driving me crazy and then I clean it up. I guess that’s as good a way to do it as any, but I have this fantasy where I don’t let it pile up in the first place. Ultimately though, that falls into the range of “things I’d like to be different, but only if it can happen without any effort on my part.”

We had a lovely weekend last week, and are going adventuring today too. MP is coming with us today, which is unusual and particularly nice. He and I have done well with going out together, just the two of us, one night a week, so that’s been pleasant and fun. Good times ahead…

  1. Hi Olivia,

    Good on you getting the step count back up and progress on the marketing plan 🙂

    As I said to NJ, I am hopeless at doing my nails. I actually had mine done for the first time a couple of months ago. Enjoy your adventuring. Glad you am MP have been getting quality time together:)

    • Thanks for your amazing ability to focus on my positive things!

      Yeah, I pretty much fail all-things girly, which is funny cause I think of myself as pretty feminine. Thanks for the good wishes!!



  2. Two peas in a pod, we are Olivia … never was a girly girl … probably because I grew up surrounded by the male species … lol! I used to do the whole nine yards for work because I had to. In retirement, not so much. However, Frank’s desire for me to be more feminine .. nails and otherwise, when we go out, is slowly taking hold. And I find it helps with my submissive mindset.

    It is good that you were busy … especially client meetings. It is hard to do the self motivation thing … but at least it’s there in your mind that you should … which means you will again.

    Hope you had a great Saturday out adventuring! … nj … xx
