Blast from the past post – Old "Getting Back Abi" List
Am going through old files as I’m reorganising my Evernote account. And I came across this list I wrote myself in July 2011. See my comments in red. Thought it was worth a giggle.
Diary-2011-07-17-Getting Back Abi List
This is a list of things that I want to achieve (or start achieving) in the next 6 months to a year (order of importance to be decided later – at the moment I’m just free-forming)
- Start singing again (possibly find someone to do a duo with me or join a band) Never did manage this. Just haven’t had time and now I’m working full time its even LESS likely
- Get to my goal weight & become a WW leader This has completely gone out of the window. For a start, I got turned down when I applied to be a Weight Watchers leader which actually gave me rather a negative view of them overall and probably contributed to me quitting as a member.
- Start taking Turkish Lessons Dammit!
- Take control of finances (get rid of overdraft, increase loan payment, sort out pension). OK…. got rid of overdraft. Paying loan off still. Still not got a pension.
- Start doing at least one exercise class a week and one walk with WW friends. Hmmm. See above point 2.
- Arrange some kid-free time (something special, not just going to sainsburies or something). Yes, this I have managed somewhat. Had my girly weekend away. Going to Glasto this year (although not sure I want to – a couple of nights in a nice hotel room might be more my idea of fun….)
- Wear make up more often Nope. Still failing in this. Even buying makeup doesn’t make me more inclined to bother wearing it.
- Steadily buy myself a decent wardrobe. Well, I bought a few items off an online catalogue but have been a bit disappointed with the quality so still feel like my wardrobe is severely lacking in everyday essential work and casual items.
