Plans for the Week

It’s Sunday so naturally I’m looking ahead to the upcoming week. Alex finished painting the window wall in the living room so I expect I’ll spend some time rearranging plants tomorrow. It’s been nice being able to actually see more of the walls in the living room, so I’m curious to find out if I’ll stick to the same sort of layout or switch it up a bit.

Another thing I’ve got to do tomorrow is pick up a cabinet from someone in town. I found a really good sized cabinet on FB Marketplace today and I’m hoping it’ll be the perfect fit under the window in my studio. Right now I don’t have any storage under the window, just a couple of old plastic dining chairs that aren’t very comfortable. If the cabinet fits, then I’ll have somewhere to store extra materials as well as a nice bench to sit on! Maybe I’ll look into getting a bench cushion, too. Regardless, I’m excited and I hope it works!

This Friday I have a few things to look forward to. The first is a call with a dietician that I’ve been waiting to have for almost four months now. During the pandemic my lifestyle has become very sedentary, and my diet hasn’t been very well-rounded or nutritious. I have a tendency to comfort-eat. In October I just had enough of trying to manage my weight on my own and I called up my GP to see what I could do. Honestly, none of the GP’s resources have been helpful at all and I’ve had to make more changes on my own while waiting for them to get back to me about the weight loss program they offer.

So I’m not the most optimistic, okay!! I’m sure many of us have a ton of negative experiences with body image. Nevertheless, I want to try to be prepared for my call with the dietician on Friday. I’d really like to keep a food journal for this week so when they ask what I have for meals or snacks etc I can actually provide accurate information. But really, I know I’m anxious about the whole thing. Hopefully my anxiety won’t ruin my week.

The other thing I’ve got to look forward to for Friday is that online k-pop dance class I signed up for at the beginning of January!! I’m nervous, but unlike the phone call, my nerves feel more excited than dreadful. I hope it goes well and I have a great time!

Alright, I think that’s really it for my plans this week. There are some other things I need to take care of for Bit by Bit before the end of the month, but other than that I want to focus on the things that keep me cool, calm, and collected.
