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

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Breaking it Down - and Reporting In

Reporting in on last week . . . .
Sleep - horrible, just horrible

DeClutter - I did one cabinet in the kitchen. Doesn't sound like a lot but I bought 4 bowls with lids and gave up 5 bowls with no lids. Plus I recycled a glass bowl/lid that was broken. Found my nut chopper and put a round casserole dish where we could find it to use.

Weight - Not feeling well, no real appetite. I've gone down 2.5 since I started the last time but I haven't weighed since and that may be because I wasn't eating well.

ARCs - nothing

Reading Challenges -not sure where I stand on these. I'll need to sort things out in May, April is booked.

Blogging Challenges - Still doing good with my three posts a week, even if they are late some days. April will be a huge challenge. Wish me luck.

Exercise - :p

Sleep - staying up all night and into the afternoon today. Crossing fingers that it will switch me around 

DeClutter -No plans to do anything until May.

Weight - Still need to pick a day as an official weigh day.

ARCs - I have BIG plans to review in April. Echo Lake will have a post up on the 6th

Reading Challenges - Just keep track of what you're reading until May then update all the challenges.

Blogging Challenges - April is coming and I've got plans! My Day of Silence post for Thursday needs to be adjusted. Doing good with my three a week. April will have me posting Monday's on Sunday. 
  • Sunday - Goals wrap up and plans for the week
  • Monday - Where are your reading? and Reading Monday
  • Thursday - Cat Thursday and Purrsday

Exercise - This plan hasn't changed. 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
