Today is the last day of my nudging blogging and I’m only going to talk about one thing today, instead of the usual three. Because it was surprisingly all-encompassing for my day.
As today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and I’m a federal public servant, we were off work. A time for quiet reflection perhaps, a bit of reading on the issues.
And in my case, to focus a bit selfishly on me. I’ve been working on body transformation in the last two weeks, or more accurately, setting myself up physically or organizationally for a long-term body transformation project.… Read the rest
29.1 was some simple liaison work for, well, work. Connecting people as sort of a networking thing. Maybe it works out, maybe it doesn’t. But seems promising so far. Not part of my day job so to speak, just a bit of extra simple networking.
29.2 was attempting something new for lunch. I’m not very creative with lunchtime options, and since J went back to school, I’ve felt very uninspired, often even skipping lunch entirely or eating late. Today, I tried a Supperworks frozen meal — freshly prepared, frozen, and nukable. It was a turkey meal, with some turkey, bit of stuffing, peas and corn, and then the surprise.… Read the rest
28.1 was a simple lunchtime outing to Kettleman’s Bagels. I like the idea of Andrea and I treating ourselves once a week to “something” that gets us out of the house. And with J at school, it means a simple outing for just the two of us, a rare occurrence.
28.2 was a meal planning outing, with Supperworks for September (three split meals, a couple of sides, and a few lunch options for Andrea and I). Oh, sure, I also got groceries at the same time, but that was just normal stuff.… Read the rest
Most of my day’s self-nudging was linked to writing and being better organized.
27.1 was some extra blogging today. I wrote about my guide to astronomy as well as an article I liked way back in 2012.
27.2 was somewhat simpler, which is that I have never really done a deep organizational dive into OneNote. I used to use Evernote long ago, I liked how it was going initially, and then they changed their business model and I said sayonara. But with my writing heating up, I feel like I would like a better organizational approach to taking notes, even on my phone.… Read the rest
I have been doing this series for the month, and while it had a clear purpose at the start of the month, I’m not as convinced the blogging is as relevant as when I started. I wanted it to hold my feet to the fire, to ensure I was making good planning decisions to nudge me forward, and it did that at the beginning. But now that I’m bopping along, the accountability requirement to blog almost seems redundant. Certainly anti-climactic. And, when I’m blogging about other things, this type of post is not necessarily at the top of my list to do before bed.… Read the rest
