{goals for the weeks ahead}

As I may have mentioned a few times already, sorry for overstressing your patience, my MA classes (International Management) are starting next week. I am still going to continue to work 10 hours per week (in the administration of a private university as marketing assistance) and adding in a few career-promoting weekend workshops around the topic “sustainable development”. You see, I have a few busy busy weeks ahead and I thought it would be best to prepare myself by making a list (oh man, do I love my lists) with goals.

  • counting calorie’s on a weekly base
    – I am not a fan of obsessing over calories, but recently I started to have a rough estimate again, since this helps a lot if you plan to loose a few pounds. Andie (Can You Stay For Dinner?) just wrote a great post about counting calories on a weekly base, instead of daily, and made me really want to try this approach.
  • including regular activities, but not obsessing over them
    – that is definitely too time consuming – Someone who totally get’s my approach on sport and fitness is Amanda (Running With Spoons), she posted a great summary here.
  • preparing foods 2 grab for the week on Sunday’s
    – Stay tuned for some posts and recipes on that topic!
  • having prepared my work-study schedule at the beginning of every week
    – Organization is so important if you have a lot of work to fit in so little time. So I try to keep my workload scheduled and have an outlook at least a week ahead at hand.
  • making time for friends and family, but also for myself
    – Most important thing if you plan to keep sane throughout an insane time. Family and friends help a lot in keeping you down to earth and your hapiness-levels high. You should also never forget that you might need some time just for yourself. In my case that can be an hour of reading and cuddling my kitty – in your case getting a manicure – whatever it is, remember to leave a free spot in your schedule.
  • blogging
    – it can be quite time consuming and stressing, but I enjoy it so much to share some thoughts with you guy’s and create recipes. This one might actually count as “myself-time” and I hope that I can keep up to post at least 2 times per week – but as with the food and excercise part, I just do not want to get too stressed out with it.

Some tips what else could be important to keep in mind when times get more busy?

  1. To me, time for myself is essential. If I don’t get it, I get stressed out and cranky. My tip would be, apart from getting me-time, to allow for some flexibility. Have some open spots or spontaneously change tasks/activities if it suits you better. If you have a very rigid plan, you’ll go mad after some time and give it up. Hope you had a great week so far!
