It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Breaking it Down - and Reporting In

Reporting in on last week . . . .
Sleep -12:30 not working, neither is 1:30 p.m. so that's what I'm going to work on this week

DeClutter - 91-Day challenge tanked this week. I did donate several things but it is as a drop in the ocean compared to what needs to be done.

Weight - I had trouble with the scale, way up and then back down. Will try again after my cycle is through.

ARCs - choice of 50 Million narrowed down to two for this week. Did I do one? NO. I did start Echo Lake just not soon enough to count for this week.

Reading Challenges - let's narrow this down also, pick one . . . Yes. I finished a book this week AND it finished off a challenge :-)

Blogging Challenges - I should sit down to plan out April's letters. My unplugged for Day of Silence post is scheduled, I blogged about why I'd be silent here. So far so good with my three a week posts.

Exercise - This is not as easy as I thought it would be. My sleep is more messed up than usual and my blood sugar is dropping before I exercise. My Doc adjusted my meds. I signed up for FIVE races. Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Oct.





Sleep - goal for this week is 1:30 p.m., again. 

DeClutter - Bathrooms are next. We have a half bath downstairs and a hall bath upstairs. The hall bath will be remodeled soon.

Weight - I still have 22 pounds to go and a new date for a deadline. We have a swim party on Memorial Day every year. Eleven Weeks. This week I'll work on fewer "cheat" food choices, and more water.

ARCs - let's narrow the choices down and read/review one . . .

Reading Challenges - let's narrow this down also, pick one . . .
  1. one non-fiction
  2. one library book
  3. finish one book this week

Blogging Challenges - April is coming and there is an A-Z blogging challenge coming up that I'd like to do again this year. April also has Day of Silence to plan around. For March, I'd like to post Purrsday every week (doing good!) and add Sunday
  • Sunday - Goals wrap up and plans for the week
  • Monday - Where are your reading? and Reading Monday
  • Thursday - Cat Thursday and Purrsday

Exercise - One day with the trainer and four days on my own. If I'm going to meet my weight deadline without moving it back (again!), I need to follow her plans for me. This week it is 40 minutes of cardio on my own, 4 days a week. If I'm short total minutes for the week, I can make them up on a rest day or have an extra long day.

Mon/Tue - 40 min with a target heart range (104-120)
Wed - meet with Bethany, she'll put me through the ringer
Thu/Fri - 40 min with a target heart range (104-120)
I'd like to keep the streak going by getting 10 minutes on Sunday and a mile on Saturday
