Anyway, here is my monthly self-bashing as I continue to make minimal progress toward my goals.
Clear my plate
As I mentioned last month, one of my jobs "quit me" at the end of June, which is why I'm blogging a *touch* more often. I unfortunately already have a couple other things on the go, like a new website(!) and moving in with B. (!!) I also will eventually move this blog over to Wordpress... so I've had to learn to say "No" to other things.
Be a tourist in my own city
I ran City Chase with one of my kickboxing buddies - not exactly a "tourist attraction", but a great way to experience the city! We did some "bootcamp" activities at Stanley Park, jumped off the dive towers at Talisman Centre, dressed up as Mounties and sang the national anthem en français Fort Calgary, made paintings at 4Cats and tried a bunch of ice cream at Village Ice Cream to name a few.
In terms of real tourist stuff, I went to Toronto for the Dietitians of Canada conference, where I met up with friends I haven't seen in too long, ate at a few restaurants, attended the first annual Go Gourmet! event at the beautiful Steam Whistle brewery and also caught a free Flaming Lips concert as part of NXNE.
Drink at least 1 L on non-work days
Still struggling! And sometimes slipping on work days too! Sip, sip, sip!
Get at least 7.5 hours of sleep per night (i.e. 10:30-11 PM bedtime) at least one night per week
Ugh. Totally did not happen. I was hoping that being in Toronto and having no plans after the conference would mean getting to bed earlier, but instead, it just meant making plans so I would stay up late! What's worse is that a lot of these sad faces represent nights that I've gone to bed past 12 and sometimes even close to 1 AM :S So far, moving in with B. has helped a little bit, especially since I don't have to wake up as early as I used to, but still struggling with getting to bed before 11.
