My Goal for the Rest of the Month

I've been thinking about the challenge Tristi sent out about our goals for the rest of the month. At first, I was thinking of just reapplying myself to my original goals, since I've been slacking off a bit. But then I had a better idea.

I'm going to aim for writing at least 500 words a day, six days a week, for what's left of this month. I've discovered in the past that when I am at the keyboard writing, I am less likely to want to snack on anything, because I really enjoy what I am doing, as opposed to sitting at the computer, typing medical reports, when there are so many other things I would rather be doing. I think this is in the same category as listening to more of the music that I like, more often. I want to get back to more of what feeds my soul and makes me happy, instead of feeding my face because I am not happy.

I'll keep pushing ahead on my original goals too.

I really like this idea. There's a book called "You Can Never Get Enough of What You Don't Need" and your goals reminded me of that. If food isn't what you need, then no matter how much of it you stuff in your mouth, you'll never be happy. Thanks for the reminder to fill in those things that will bring us joy so that we don't think we want to binge so often. :o)
