Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Breaking it Down - and Reporting In

Reporting in on last week . . . .
Sleep -1:30 still isn't working, I think I need to do an up ALL night again to get back on track.

DeClutter - The hall bath needs to be remodeled. We did go look at Lowe's and made the decision that we need help and will talk to a designer. I worked in my closet some. Ten more shirts gone.

Weight - I've got to pick a new "official" day to weight in. Husband went out of town on business and while I didn't get cookies like I normally would, I could have made better choices. Down .8

ARCs - Not only did I not review a book this week, I've received one and two more are on their way.

Reading Challenges - I returned a (late!) library book. Does that count? I started a non-fiction.

Blogging Challenges - My three a week is going but that's all I can say about my blogging.

Exercise - March's 5k was actually 3.1415 on the 14th. I did 3.15 on the treadmill. By Friday? Everything about going to the gym was irritating so Bethany told me to take Thursday off this week. I'm assuming I need to workout Saturday instead. I'm exercising too far above my "fat burning" zone and she doesn't want me to over train. It was way too weird taking Thursday off.



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

DeClutter - Let us not discuss the kitchen. The dining room and pantry are worse.

Weight - Need to pick a new weigh in day, I don't know how much it has changed since I started. Still working on fewer "cheat" food choices, and more water.

ARCs - Dang it! Read one of these and get a review up! . . . (yes, this is the same list)

Reading Challenges - let's narrow this down also, pick one . . .
  1. one non-fiction (started one, finish it)
  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 Saturday and start the week with yoga on Sunday
