Living in CHAOS: This is where I have had the most success. While I have had to repeat some of the FlyLady babysteps I am still working on the program which is better than I have done in the past where one off day lead me to quit multiple times. The house is better and if I’m stuck about day 13 trying to get both morning and evening routines everyday I am getting at least part of each every day. Even if come April 4th I’m still trying to get to 31 days of baby steps to get the habits ingrained I will not have quit.
A Track a Fortnight: This goal, however, is currently in total fail mode. Yesterday should have been track two’s posting day. I don’t have a track out. This resolution needs the most effort. I think I am going to take Austin Kleon’s advice to "show your work" and mash it up with Mike Monday’s "minimum viable commitment" idea to get some momentum as well as some blog content.
Mike is big on completing a lot of tracks and should have been mentioned with Glass and Bradbury as inspiration for this resolution. His minimum viable commitment is to work on music daily, even if just ten minutes. If I post the results of at least some of that, even if just a two bar drum loop or melody wave, as part of showing my work it will get some forward momentum on both the music and blogging fronts.
Squat, Lunge, Push, Sit, Swim, and Run: is in between. I am on day three of the swimming programming with no issues. I have started squats twice and missed days. I will restart squats tonight or tomorrow and add pushups the day after. I am running in parallel to make sure I can get them all done. I think that should be okay if legs and upper body are on different days and I focus the cardio on the part I’m not doing that day (i.e. don’t swim and do arms or run and do legs).
Summary: Basically, I made the resolutions and, except for Flying, forgot about them most of February. Time to recenter and get moving.
