Follow-Up Friday #1: Shiny Sink, C25k, and Queries- Oh, My!

It’s been a rough week. We’ve had financial struggles and I have PMS and I’m grouchy. And getting a handful of rejections every day doesn’t help.

But you know what? I’m calling this week a win. Because I’ve reached my goals so far. Here’s the update.

Shiny Sink Streak

10. Going on 11 in a few minutes 🙂
The shiny sink has been a huge success so far. I’ve taken it literally and only worried about shining the sink. But just as Flylady intended, it’s pretty easy to do the dishes when the sink is empty. And it looks so clean. I want the clean to spread. So I clean. It’s been ten days, and I have a pretty well-functioning kitchen. Shiny Sink Streak. Eleven days of winning.

C25K

Speaking of winning….

I just finished Week 3, Day 2. I’ve done 8 workouts of the 24- 1/3 of the way there! I’ve found it pretty easy to work into my schedule. Every day is too much. I know I want to spend Saturdays and Sundays with my family. And I know my Wednesdays are cray-cray. But Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday I can find time pretty consistently. This is the first time in my adult life that I have found a workout schedule that feels sustainable. And that is HUGE.

As for the workouts themselves, they also feel manageable. I’m sweating and working hard and feel a little challenged but not overwhelmed. C25K. Eight workouts of winning.

Queries
Rejection is hard. It’s really hard. And it makes me want to quit, even though I’m less than halfway through my list. (Things I also know: I only need one “yes,” and a “yes” takes longer than a “no.” Still sucks.) I pushed through, though, and sent a few more so I could say I reached a milestone. Queries. 100 sent. Feeling meh.

Off to shine my sink!

Also, this happened two nights ago.

It has nothing to do with any of the above except that it has everything to do with everything. Happy Weekend, everybody.

    What a beautiful smile she has. Looks like a good reason to power through those rejections and keep on trying. You are in some excellent company, so don’t give up!!
