    Rookie and Her Saggy Bottom

    O_O I hope not Walls are tacky feeling. The white doesn't rub off easily. Roomie tried to clean the white off the walls and it just spread it around I think. Brown room tends to get really hot and humid in the summer. And he sleeps with his window open in these fall temperatures. Blue room is attached to an ensuite with a shower and the windows in the blue room are the old wooden ones that don't really close the best anymore. Both walls were prepped the same. Was already painted...Sanded lightly, cleaned, primed then painted over. The walls before we painted did not the white on them or the tacky feeling. The master bedroom (blue) did not have a shower in it before. So I'm pretty sure it's moisture. Our office is upstairs and it does not have the same tacky feeling or the white texture.

    Yay progress already. I called and made my doctors appointment. Long story short... they cut me off my birth control prescription until I made an appointment. So I was like damn.. guess I am due for another physical... Nope they just want to take my blood pressure. Of course it took calling them 13 times to get an appointment So my appointment is Wednesday around lunch. I swapped my usual Wednesday normal eating day for Fridays low carb day since I swapped my Friday work from home day for Wednesday.... So my coworker and I can go for sushi lunch.

    This is going to be a continuation and adjustment from last challenge. Main Quest: Lose weight (get down to 200lbs) Current Weight: 270.2lbs Life Quest: Pay off LoC and save that sweet sweet cash money These are my goals and tasks for this challenge. They may end up being adjusted or removed as completed.

Present (Bullet Journals) My plan was to start the 30 Day Challenge from Strides for Success with this challenge but I only just realized that it doesn't start until Jan 1, 2020. I do have an old "Week 1" PDF from 2016, so I am going to follow that and aim to start incorporating it into my lifestyle so come Jan 1 I should be hopefully less overwhelmed by the increase of exercise. My plan is to ease into it and see where it takes me. Random other TODOs that haven't quite made the list because they are more ideas. - Figure out a better clothing system (right now my dirty clothes just sit in a heap on my side of the bedroom... and clean clothes in 2 hampers) - Get a proper night stand for beside my side of the bed with a drawer and maybe shelves - Find a designated spot for yarn - Figure out better solution for Tupperware cupboard - Clean off the dogs crate tops - Find designated spot for bath bomb supplies - Remove dumb shelving in laundry room - Build nice storage shelving in the laundry room that fit bins and can be used as a flat ironing surface / sewing surface - Clean out garage - Unpack boxes in garage - Get rid of big black wooden thing in garage and broken chair - Get Dad to hook up heating flooring in the newly renovated bathroom - Grout upstairs bathroom floor - Screw in transition for master bedroom + fix office transition - Figure out why my bedroom and roomies bedroom have a white foggy residue growing on them and the walls are sticky to touch

    WEEK 5 Dailies Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday - Drink 2L water - Floss at least once - Do 4x Low Carb days Low Low Normal Low Low Normal Normal Weeklies (Life) - Mumble exercise x2 - Walk x2 - Do Outside Work (mow lawn, garden) - Do Inside Work (sweep, mop, etc) x2 Weeklies (Budget) - 1 Starbucks - 1 eat out for lunch Mon-Thurs - 2 eat out dinner Mon-Sun Other Progress - Paint Lab (due Feb) - Hang shark painting Well overall I did good. I think the BIG things were I got my spending way more under control with this challenge and I was able to start losing some weight and got into a good roll with the low carb (though I am a bit iffy on that right now and trying to get back into the roll of things after Thanksgiving). This weekend was pretty fun. I started crocheting a winter hat for my horse. Boyfriend and I went shopping for his halloween costume but of course he didn't really see anything. So he is going to be Bob Ross. Which who knew it would be so hard to find a brown afro.... I found a Bob Ross afro with a beard attached (we don't need a beard) and that was $25 ... We went to his friends house to carve pumpkins and we made a venom pumpkin together! It turned out real good. We watched a movie and I said no to the chips and snacks they kept offering. So win there. The next day I hung out with my mom, sister and barn owner. We went to go look at miniature horses for my mom. She picked one out and we brought her home. Her name is Sizzle. I wish I could be more excited about it lol but I feel a bit bad because we have to keep it a secret from my Dad because my mom keeps saying "my husband would divorce me" and im like ugggh cringe. lol But anyways I am going to try and help her get organized so she gets the house decluttered and clean so maybe if dad finds out hes not as mad? Venom pumpkin <3 Horsie trying on the start of her hat Sizzle

    I am surrounded by people who like to eat and other people who keep trying to go on keto then fail and try to get me to "cheat" too lol Oh and I have a guy who eats horribly and doesn't gain haha. I figure as long as they are happy and healthy then thats good enough for me. Hahaha ahhh you are the best. It is really amazing the range of things people are into here. I was thinking about that the other day. Its so motivating to me Like we all respect each others hobbies and even get to learn about them. Mushy is good. I like mushy.

    I mean it sounds silly if you DONT do the 5k lol everything points to yes! Have fun if you do it! OHHHH Maryland is on my list of renn faires I eventually want to go to. My one friend (who dressed like a pirate for his wedding) boasted about how amazing it is. We have one where I live but it literally is just a farmers field with those normal vender tents set up.

    Daisy and I in all our glory. We had a much better ride and she was moving out better. It could be that I meant business, or it was just chillier and windy. It could of also been that I wasn't as exhausted going into this exercise as I was during my lesson. Either way she was a very good girl. Scale read 270.2lbs today so almost back to 'normal' after the craziness that is last weekend haha. I haven't been as thirsty with the cooler weather but I am making sure to get at least 2L... the bubba mugs really help. We had our first frost warning today :O brrrrr I think winter is really happening this year.

    I can't usually feel the boobs lol BUT they look ridiculous :O I battled them with layers though and they were TOOOO obvious. If I was just wearing my tshirt it would look like they were smacking me in the face. Yup lol I guess core is important in life really and probably why you see peoples bodies break down. BUT that is a more slow happening. I hope it will be a smooth transition. The trickiest part will be the 30 day fitness challenge. And second trickiest will be the eating. Everything else is quite a habit now. I am relieved too. We were supposed to go Tuesday but he remembered we could just go Saturday and wasn't sure why he was in such a rush to do it by Tuesday. Sooo we are going Saturday instead so then we can go to a few different ones. And thank you! It is easier once you find that rhythm. I am getting mine back after Thanksgiving and period week haha. Congratulations to you as well! I don't think I have got to visit your thread yet. Better late than never.
