Week 1 of my notecard system went pretty well.
It was eye opening to look at it after a week and see which habits were effortless and which habits were not.
I only woke up by 6am two times. What I concluded is I am a “two alarm” person. I need one set for an earlier time (5:40) and one set for the actual time I want to wake up (6:00).
One alarm didn’t work last week, but this week two alarms works wonderfully!
I did not do it.
Trying again this week, but honestly it will likely happen more when the kids start school next week!
Coffee Atleast 1 hour after medicine
I was about 50% on this one last week.
This week I am at 100% because we moved the coffee pot to the cabinet so there is no temptation for morning coffee.
So those are the habits I struggled with. Here are the ones I did well:
- Walking everyday and push-ups
- No grains
- Taking vitamins (added this midweek)
- writing (did 2 out of 3)
- Reading 30 minutes
- Low internet usage
- Bed by 10pm
I reminded myself that the goal is progress, not perfection.
But I am also aware of things that derail my progress. Removing obstacles (like the coffee pot) is the easiest way to ensure progress.
So I am in week two and feeling great.
Checklists always work well for me, so I am excited to keep improving with my notecard checklist!
