Plan for 2018 (v.1)

Theme for 2018: Perseverance (finishing what I start) and Love? (While I adore The Last Jedi, it left me feeling profoundly lonely — It’s been about seven years since my last relationship…) Sure, Perseverance and Love.

How do I want to evolve and grow? What kind of person do I want to be at this time next year?

  • I want to be happier (not as cynical).
  • I want to be proud of the things I’ve accomplished.
  • I want to be clean of my sugar addiction.
  • I want to continue repairing my relationship with my father
  • I want to have tried new things (new exercise classes, new dance events, etc.)

What areas do I want to focus on?

Health (for me & Holly)

  • Give up carbs for 2018 — You did it in October, you can do it again. (Exceptions: sushi, Hidden Valley ranch salad dressing, ketchup, Emergen-C, and maybe a few other things…)
  • Sleep = 11 pm to 6 am
  • PT exercises (15 min, twice a day), because I’m tired of hurting all the time. Also, 15 min is only 1.04% of the day.
  • Various exercise — FitLife Center / trainer appts? Elliptical, Swimming, Weights. Investigate tai chi, Bollywood, ballroom lessons
  • Schedule showers in calendar (because the shortest shower I’ve ever taken was 20 min.)
  • Weigh-Ins every Sunday (Starting with Dec. 31)
  • Conscientious use of food diary app
  • Initial goal of 5,000 steps / day (FitBit) — Keep it attainable…


  • Priority List (testing organizational plan with index cards in a box, with supplies lists and color coding…)
  • Dedicated Craft Time
  • Finish things I’ve started before initiating new project(s)… No matter how excited I am to start a new thing, I have to practice finishing things too.


  • Regular cleaning / decluttering / decorating time (apartment maintenance)
  • Plan Sabbat / Esbat rituals & ceremonies
  • Study! (Lots of books to read)
  • Practice (tarot readings, spell casting, herbs, etc.)

Meals Planning / Food Framework:

Breakfast = 3 eggs (with some salt) and a package of SteamFresh Veg (rotation of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, and creamed spinach). The creamed/cheesy spinach is my favorite.

Dinner = a huge plate of salad (spinach or leaf mix) and a meat

Lunch / Snacks =

  • Cottage cheese
  • 2 cans of tuna with mayo, soy sauce, & shredded cheese
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Peanut butter with carrot & celery sticks
  • Mixed veg (Getting more veg into my day will be the hard part…)

Next Steps:

  1. Optimize iPad calendar use. Put ALL THE THINGS on it, including some daily snuggle time with my kitty.
  2. Keep the fridge stocked with good food; Regular grocery shopping!
  3. Follow the calendar for time use! (Srsly, what’s the point of making the plan if you’re not gonna follow it?)
