Kind of disappointed in this week. I’m definitely starting to feel the burnout from having weekly resolutions, but I did so well last week with stepping out of my comfort zone (3 things in 3 days!) that I just didn’t have it in me to get all overachiever on this one.
I did do a lot of “different” things this week, but they weren’t all intentional. I left my car at work by accident and didn’t remember until I went to drive to work the next morning and thought it was stolen. Then I spent the weekend being sick. Neither was part of my resolution to Do Something Different, but both were somewhat surprising and non-routine.
If I had drawn this one earlier in the year, I would have had a list of about 17 things I wanted to do in 7 days to accomplish it. I would have bought a new outfit, tried a new restaurant, maybe cut or dyed my hair, and started dating girls. Well, maybe. They’re kind of crazy, I know this from experience. But I would have done SOMEthing. Several somethings.
Instead what I did do is go to Panera for breakfast. Yup, Panera. A place I’ve been a million times. Even for breakfast. But I haven’t been in a long time and I was getting sick of Starbucks (gasp!), so I got up early and changed the morning routine a bit to allow time to get to Panera for breakfast.
Unfortunately, this was the day that I failed to remember my car was already at work since I didn’t pick it up the night before on my way home from carpooling to Dan’s aunt’s house. No Panera for me that day, but I managed to get up early 2 days in a row and try again the next day.
That chai is like Christmas in a cup. It’s delicious!
I won’t sell myself TOO short because I was conscious all week of getting out of my routine and shaking things up a little. But for me that just means going out on a Friday night at 9 instead of already being curled up in bed with a stack of magazines. 9 o’clock. AT NIGHT.
So, there’s that. There’s just not much else…
The good news is that we’re about 20 hours into Stress Less week and I’m rocking it so far. I mean I haven’t even thrown anything.
