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 - this week's goals

Sleep - already waking up before 1:30 p.m. so this week I'll move it ahead to 12:30 p.m. 

DeClutter - The bathroom and closet is next. I'll do the pictures but then I think I'll pull an Ostrich. ;-) The half-bath is such a smaller job . . .

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. 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 (don't remember what it was)
Wed - meet with Bethany, she'll put me through the ringer
Thu/Fri - 40 min with a target heart range (don't remember what it was)
I'd like to keep the streak going by getting 10 minutes on Sunday and a mile on Saturday
