So I embarked on a Bold New Life Plan yesterday -- I'm not quite sure what brought it on (aside from an insane, stress-filled morning), but now that it's here I plan on keeping it around. A three-prong attack on the things that could improve my life, it involves not oversleeping and being late for work, eating sensibly (as opposed to my starving fugitive approach), getting more exercise, and writing and reading on a daily, consistant basis.
So today I was ten minutes early, ate soup and bread for lunch, with a healthy snack of an orange, mixed roasted nuts, and a small bit of cheese this afternoon. Dinner will be a leftover salad eaten later, and dinner will be followed by four pages of screenplay and yet more of The Golden Compass.
(Yes, note updated sidebar to reflect completion of Heartbreaking Work, which did not break my heart, but was just as good as all the people say.)
Usually when I embark on a New Life Plan, I set up a reward structure. But I haven't this time. It should be its own reward, yes?
If not, there's always comics. Comics: The Great Motivator.
