    Project 365 – Week 1

    One of my goals for this year is to complete Project 365. One photo a day, everyday, for a year. Or at least to give it a really good go. It’s something I started doing at the beginning of last year but gave up on by the 4th or thereabouts because most of my photos were on my phone which went missing and I lost them all. So this year I’m trying it again. Here are my first week and photos Day 1 I took this on my way back from the supermarket. I wanted to take something to show how blue the sky was because it felt like it…

    >December Goals

    >Take my meds every day (seriously my med compliance has been absolutely atrocious lately. And no suprise, my mood is appalling as a result. Surprisingly my spasticity hasn’t gone as crazy as it used to with not meds). Continue my one better choice a day plan I’ve been working on. Finish some damn knitting.  (honestly I don’t think I’ve finished a single knitting project this year :-O) No more ridiculous chocolate binges (I ate a totally ridiculous amount today and don’t know how I wasn’t sick). 15 mins on the house each day. Catch up on book reviews Exercise a couple of times a week. All content copyright Emma Crees,…

    >Goals for the week

    >It’s been a bit of a crap week and I’ve been feeling down at times, missing my meds and feeling a bit ill on and off. I do think there’s been a bit of a virus going around as a couple of other local people have complained of nausea too. Anyway although I’m slowly pulling it back together now and have an actual proper achievement to show for today – I went back to a very badly stalled project and have got it moving again. I thought it would be good to set a few goals. 1. Take my sertraline daily.2. Take my baclofen at least once a day (will…

    >2011 Begins

    >I could probably spend a long time here writing about all I want to do and all I hope to do in 2011.  And there are a lot of things I would like to do or that I really really want to do or I otherwise expect 2011 to bring.  I’ve seen a lot of review of 2010 blog entries and lists of New Years Resolutions.  All very interesting and I enjoyed reading them.  I like doing the review entries and I think before I’ve posted resolutions.  I just don’t think I will this year. Regardless of whether you call it “Two Thousand and Eleven” or “Twenty Eleven” (personally I’m…

    >On the move again at last

    >Yes, this week finally sees some progress.  I was feeling very discouraged so that is definitely a good thing!  Basically I cut out pretty much all snacking and it’s definitely worked. I’m down 2 and three quarter pounds this week.  Which puts me back down to my lowest weight of this journey.  I won’t make the “virgin fat next week” comments I did last time because I think that jinxed me but… here’s hoping!  I’m 17 stone 4 3/4 pounds now (242.75lb) and I really hope to end September with the number that starts with 16 stone something. I was thinking about a rest of the year goal yesterday.  I…

    >Compliments

    >I’ve been meaning to post this since it happened because I don’t want to forget about it.  Especially today as I am a bit fed up about stupid things that shouldn’t bother me.  So here goes: On Thursday one of the newer creative writers (there are several of us who have done the course more than once; he is one of the ones who was new this time round) and I were chatting.  We went out for a meal after the class as it was the last one of the course. And he described me as a semi-professional writer what with all my reviewing and all that. How very. very…

    >101 in 1001 – Item 31…

    > Take meds everyday for six months …has been completed! Not much to say about this one, it’s pretty self explanatory. On my previous 101 in 1001 list I did take meds every day for six weeks.  I started that one on 1st January 2007 and actually carried it on and didn’t miss a single dose of medication in 2007.  I didn’t do such a great job of keeping it up beyond the one year mark however and I wanted to set this goal to get me back into such a good habit of meds taking again.  Obviously I’m not going to stop taking them now I’ve hit that goal.…

    >One Stone Goal – Done!

    > Down another 2 and a half pounds today.  Total weight loss is now 1 stone and half a pound!  I’m so pleased.  I’m now 17st 12 & 7/8lb.  I did see 19st 1 at one point at the beginning of the year but my official starting weight was 18st 13&1/2 lb – I didn’t have my scales for several weeks in between the two.  My mum commented today that I am so far from 20 stone now.  Apparently at the beginning of the year she was really worried that if I kept going the way I was I’d be ending this year weighing over 20st. And because I am…

    >A Bordering on TMI Update Type Post

    >Being that it’s over a week since I wrote a “proper” catch up type blog entry I thought I better see what I could do about that right now.  This entry contains items which fall under the category of TMI – you have been warned! The goals I wrote about a few weeks ago are… OK but kinda stalled.  My TV license is renewed, I’ve e-mailed or called or spoken to on facebook chat most of my friends I wanted to catch up with but not all.  I have looked briefly into changing my ISP but need to do more for that really.  I haven’t even started my shawl I…

    >A Few Goals

    >A couple of years ago my parents went to New Zealand for five or so weeks at this time of year.  During the time they were away I set myself various goals.  Some of which I achieved and some I didn’t.  I had extra care visits during that time and some of it was to get the carers to do various jobs (which was partially where the failures came from) and some were “oh I must do X sometime” small jobs.  Like the photos I got enlarged and have by my bed – I’d meant to do that for ages until I did it. I was a bit disappointed but…
