  1. Sunday was another long day. Got up early and headed over to my parents house. My sister and I went to the Seattle Aquarium with both of my nephews, had lunch then headed home. We played some games and I did a few science experiments with my older nephew. I got him a few months of Little Passports, the science expedition, and we did a spatter test, took finger prints and attempted to extract the DNA from an apple. None of the experiments turned out that well but that's what experimenting is all about! Mini rant about family
  2. Saturday started early with my drive up to Seattle. Did the women's march and was on my feet and walking from 8am to 3pm. It was a long day but made me feel pretty good. Physically I was a wreck. Lol Stopped by the gym and did 20 mins of hydromassage then got some Indian food. I was supposed to go to a friend's party but by the time I got home, I was exhausted. I iced my knees, massaged my legs and did 5 mins if yoga.
  3. Thursday was book clubs craft night so that's all I did. Lots of bullet journal watercoloring Lol. I did have fast food for dinner though. Friday after work I stopped by the library and picked up 2 more books. On my way home I received an email saying that I was selected to continue in with the interview process. Next step is a written exam that I scheduled for next Thursday. Super nervous since I have not taken any exams since I graduated college in 07! Also I was never good at tests. I don't like not knowing what to expect.
  4. Wednesday was an weird day. Woke feeling sad, got to work and killed 3 hours listening to the police scanner because there was a stand off that lasted that long near where I work. I was updating my co-workers on the situation so the morning went by super fast. After work I donated plasma and then went home and finished my book, did some yoga and went to bed. So far for this challenge I've completed my donation goal and my reading goal. I'm doing a decent job on not eating fast food and I am keeping up on my bujo. Gym goal is right on schedule but this weekend I'm taking my gym goal outside. Lol. I'll end up walking a lot on Saturday so I'm counting that as gym time. I also might stop by the gym after the way and do the hydro massage. I still need to work on saving money though.
  5. I think I need to start eating either a breakfast or something around 9:30am and 10am. The last few days I have been starving come lunch time, today I was shaky. I hate eating early in the day though.
  6. Started reading Pleasure Unbound since it finally arrived! Kind of absorbed with that all night and forgot to do my yoga. Before bed I got a text from my friend saying that one of my Alma mater's Quarterbacks committed suicide last night. I, of course didn't go to school with him but my heart breaks for him and his family because he thought the only way out was to take his life. I can't imagine how his family or teammates feel. I went to bed and woke up with a heavy heart. It's a sad day for his family, friends and the cougar nation. There are always other options so if you can't find any, please reach out to someone who can help.

  7. So yesterday, still working on book rearranging. Not a big deal but I need to make time to ACTUALLY do it. I did finally figure out a plan for the weekend based on how things went last year. I think I'm going to drive up and park at the seattle center, take a monorail down to westlake center and then take the light rail to capital Hill. (I'm not good with buses). That way I don't have to uber with a potential massive surcharge or wait in the hour long monorail line in order to get back to downtown seattle to catch the light rail to my car. Instead I just park at the end of the March route! Smart, hopefully. I went grocery shopping so I would have lunches and dinners for this week. They are not the healthiest but at least I'm not tempted to go out and eat. Did my 5 mins of yoga, worked on my bullet Journal and finished reading Cold Days.
  8. Thanks. I'm trying to keep track of what I actually do. Would be nice to see some progress.
  9. I felt the story was enough to keep me coming back. Now I'm at book #14 and I'm glad I kept going. I can roll my eyes for a few sentences to get a good story. Lol. Plus he does get WAY better. So today has been a day of planning! I forgot I had a lunch date today so I decided to check my week again and make sure I didn't miss anything else. Also spent some time rearranging my book club reading list and planned my trip and meeting spots for Saturday and the women's march.
  10. Just like the title says, I have no idea what I'm doing. Usually I have a whole bunch of challenge ideas but I've been procrastinating and drawing a blank. Well not really procrastinating, I just have no idea what I want to accomplish this year fitness wise. This challenge I'm going to try to hit some basic goals and figure out what I want out of this year. Challenge Goals 1. Save Money - Save $85 2. No fast food - Avoid Fast Food - Will allow 5 slip ups. I'm not a saint! 3. Donate Plasma - Donate at least 4x this month. I was sick last month and missed half of it 4. Get my ass to the gym - I was doing so well, then I got sick 5. Do my monthly focus - This month I want to focus on doing either 5 mins of yoga before bed or when I wake up 6. Read - I have 4 books I need to read this month. Side Jobs, Cold Days, Burn for me and Passion Unbound 7. Bullet Journal - Work on it!
