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 - I almost made it 24 hours, hoping to get back on track. Nope, work up about Midnight on Monday and couldn’t stop thinking about all the things I need to do. All messed up again.

DeClutter - nothing has been done here as I'm concentrating on exercise and blogging this month. 

Weight - 209.2. ugh, I really don't like telling you that. Bought a BeachBody program, crossing my fingers it works. Also my coach is a relative and I'll feel okay going to her for help.

ARCs - Echo Lake, In Mint Condition, Just a Minute, Kekula (tomorrow)

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. E, F, G, H, were complete reviews.

Exercise -

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. Husband will be out of town a few days, maybe I get some work done in our closet.

Weight - Still need to pick a day as an official weigh day. Received 21 Day Fix, wish me luck.

ARCs - I have BIG plans to review in April. Cover Your Eyes will need to wait until April is over.

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

Blogging Challenges - WooHoo! "I" and "J" were both incomplete reads but nice reviews. So far, I'm posting all three plus the reviews and I have a couple scheduled.
  • 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 45 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 - 45 min with a target heart range (104-130)
Tue - 45 min with a target heart range (104-130)
Wed - meet with Bethany, she'll put me through the ringer
Thu - 45 min with a target heart range (104-130)
Fri - 45 min with a target heart range (104-130)
I'd like to keep the streak going by getting 10 minutes on Saturday and start the week with yoga on Sunday
