Should I budget my time?

Lulu, my Spending Planner Coach is very pleased with my progress. Three weeks on and we are gradually getting a better picture of my personal budget. With the SPI system there are graphs and charts (who doesn’t love a pie chart!?!), and I can see clearly where and when we will come unstuck. It’s somewhere around March 13, 2020.

Logging off … an update

Last week I wrote about logging off Facebook more as a way to manage time. Over Christmas and New Year because there was a little downtime I was checking into Facebook and the rest more than usual. But then once I got back to work, I was STILL logging in. I could feel myself getting out of control.

Logging off … not really … but more than usual.

So I’ve logged off Facebook. I know it must seem like “yeah and …. ?!” to a lot of people, but to me, it’s not so straightforward.

Why?

Fat Girl Swimming …

First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water.

How many “challenges” can I do in one year?

How many challenges can I do in one year? I wish I could clone myself.
