71kg, 5kg over goal weight
Today is the first of February. That means (hopefully) in 102 days I'll be leaving Auckland. I've got a hell of a lot of things to do before I leave, and I'm suffering from the stress and anxiety about the trip. As a result, yesterday I did exactly zero hours of work on "stuff", the things I need to do before I leave.
I wondered what to do about this potential crisis (and yes, it could turn out to be a crisis) so in the middle of the night I decided to post on the blog about it. For the next 3 1/2 months you'll be reading about what I'm doing, totally unrelated to weight loss.
Sorry about that.
Today I want to achieve 4 hours of doing things. Most of that is tidying (a tidy place is welcoming to doing things, an untidy place is not in my experience). I also want to start working on:
- Getting a tow bar for my car (essential because I need to put all of my stuff in storage, and remove a dead couch out the back collecting leaves)
- Make an appointment for essential medical tests
- Start working on getting a passport (today, just a phone call is all I need to do)
- Print out the form for travel insurance when I go to the doctor next week
Living in New Zealand is like living in a cocoon. State funded medical care and ACC. ACC is a compulsory accident insurance system we have here. It's been around for about 50 years. What that means is that if you have an accident, ACC will (supposedly) take care of you and pay you money and your expenses etc. Yes, there are issues and complaints but I'll take that over the alternative any day. The downside is that you cannot sue. I'm fine with that.
I just worry about what could happen if.... You get the idea.
So the goal today is to do 4 hours of work. It could be anything. From now on, until I've finished all of my tasks, this blog will turn into a motivation blog.
Sorry about that.
