So, because I utterly adore Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get involved with her 7 Things interactive malarky. Plus, it's a pretty good kick up the bum to get me to actually achieve some things! You can see how this came about by checking out Louise's blog post here! So, without further ado lets get to it - here are the 7 things I am aiming to do...
Pamper. I think my body deserves a little bit of TLC, and I want to feel better about myself so I'm going to set aside a good chunk of time to do things properly, I'm talking a full exfoliation, some fake tan (eek I never wear it!) and giving myself a luxurious manicure and pedicure.
Sort. There are things I just need to do, sending emails, posting things, and checking up on bills and standing orders etc so my aim is to tie up all those loose ends.
Read. And by read I mean an actual book. It's not that I don't read books anymore but I tend to leave it longer between finishing one and starting another because I get lost in the world of blogging and watching YouTube, this is all well and good but I want to get lost in a novel again!
Exercise. I, like Louise, am not intending on running a marathon or swimming the channel, but I need to get moving because I'm simply just too sedentary, I'll start with some yoga stretches I think (God I really am adventurous!) and then just try to walk more, and maybe I'll do a sit up or two (if my stomach muscles can be located).
Invest. I don't mean in anything material, there will be no property purchases, and I don't intend to buy up any shares, I plan on just investing some time in myself. There is a lot going on in my little head and heart and I store it all away hoping it'll just go away, but alas it isn't so easily lost, so I want to spend some time unravelling it and sorting it, so that at least it can be stored away more neatly!
Plan. I want to buy a diary. I've long since lost my academic diary (and anyway it'll be running out soon and holds too many emotions), so it's time to get a 2012 diary and plan some important things. I've got a lot to cram into the next few months and it would do me good to be able to visualise it all!
Drink. I am ridiculously bad at drinking water, and so I intend to up my intake. I doubt I'll go from zero to H2O hero over night but every little helps hey?!
So, there we have it! I really hope that by having these up for all to see (well my 9 followers) will motivate me, and to know I'm doing this with a load of Louise's readers is a real encouragement!
Do you fancy getting involved in the 7 Things in 7 Days challenge?
Living in a small town in the middle of the countryside sucks sometimes - one of my things is to plan, and to plan I want a dairy, and I'd like my dairy to be either Paperchase or Moleskine. Neither of these things exist in my small town and will only be available when I drive an hour and a half to my nearest city...which seems a little excessive for a diary. I plan to go next week with my mum because she works in said city! Countryside, you're pretty, but sometimes a total pain in the ass!!
