Don’t change, your plans, for me

Today I mostly stayed in bed and watched some more One Tree Hill. I have decided that this is probably not too healthy. Fun. But not healthy. If I do lose my job (no news yet), I’m at a significant risk of becoming obese and smelly. If I keep my job, the shock of returning to a 9 to 5 where I’m expected to be dressed and active all day, may kill me.

Therefore I have come up with the following Minimum Standards Agreement –

1. Get up in the morning, go to bed in the evening.

2. Wash and get dressed every day.

3. Eat three meals a day.  Actual meals, not snacks and junk.

4. Get outside and get some exercise every day.

5. Write. Try to hit 2000 words a day.

6. Participate. Find a book group. Go to running club. Investigate volunteering.

Obviously 1. and 2. are a bit of a given if I do go back to work. The rest I want to do anyway. I’ve learned that I need to take care of myself. Now it’s time to start putting my money where my mouth is.

  1. Good list. Sometimes just checking off something basic helps the day go by better.

  2. Sounds good 🙂 Best of luck with the book!
