The idea of only eating for a certain amount of time in a day isn’t new, but it can be scary. I’ve tried IF (intermittent fasting) before by selecting the exact hours I would and wouldn’t eat. However, my schedule isn’t so cut and dry. It changes from day to day making it damn near impossible to maintain such a rigid timetable.
So, this time I’m doing things a little differently. I’m fasting for at least 13 hours a day, but the start and end times are dictated by the individual needs of each day. So far, it seems to be working. I’ve only been at it for about a week, but I’m feeling hopeful that I can maintain this particular way of fasting successfully for as long as want. I guess we’ll see.
I hope everyone is having a great first month of the year!
When it comes to creating lists, I’m a pro. I can whip up a list for cleaning, shopping, even budgeting in no time flat. My problem comes with the follow through. Specifically, when it comes to sticking to a rigid cleaning schedule.
I have tried the clean-everything-at-once method and the clean-a-little-bit-everyday method, in various forms. Neither has worked particularly well for me. Of course, each time, I was using someone else’s pre-made list. Working on their timeline and with their priorities.
This time, I have done a lot of reading and web searching and come up with my own version. I made the master list, then broke it up into manageable chunks with like items bundled together. Finally, I created the timeline based on my own priorities and abilities.
It’s still new and I haven’t gotten into the full swing of things yet, but I’m quite hopeful. I’ve managed to do most of the items on my list without feeling overwhelmed or guilty for not doing it all perfectly. I see that as progress. And any progress is good.
In the spirit of accomplishment, I hope everyone has a successful weekend!
Clearly, I am not good at maintaining a schedule, even one I made up. Of course, I kind of already knew that about myself. All I can do is write when I remember and hope that next week I’ll be better.
Whatever the case may be, I’m here now and hope that everyone has a wonderful week!
That’s right, I’m posting a day late, yet again. I really need to keep on top of my schedule or this is going to become a habit.
It’s not like my schedule is even that hectic. I just forget things sometimes and let my alarms pass without paying attention.
Maybe I’ll change and maybe I won’t. All I can do is try my best and not be too hard on myself. A lesson we all need to remember from time to time.
Have a good week everyone.
So, I totally forgot to post yesterday. The weather has been a little crazy here lately. It keeps going back and forth – from cold and snowy, to warm and rainy. It’s quite annoying.
Hopefully, I stay on top of things a bit better next week.
Stay safe and warm everyone.
The holiday season is upon us, as is the cold & flu season. With that in mind, I am going to be changing my blog post schedule.
Until now, I have been posting twice a week, on Wednesday’s and Saturday’s. With my currently hectic schedule and being sidelined by sickness, I will be posting only on Saturday’s for the foreseeable future.
I hope that everyone has a lovely, healthy, stress-free winter.
Where I live, the internet is pretty terrible. Still, it’s never completely given up quite like this. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get it back online, so I’m writing this post on my phone. Not ideal, I know.
In any case, until I get the internet up and running, I’ll be trying to keep up with my self imposed blogging schedule using my phone.
Thanks for your patience.
