    I am sorta relieved to figure this out about myself. Chopped salads 4 life! Haha...thanks! I love the photo too. Thanks for the tips about the desk...I only have one monitor + laptop. But I definitely don't want wobbly....too clumsy to be around wobbly electronics!

    Week 1 1. Workout 3 x per week (2/3) -- on track, may even get 4 in this week....but let's not get ahead of ourselves. I may swap out tomorrow's regular workout with some sleep, since I'm going rock climbing on Sunday. 2. Salad cluuuuuuuuuuub. (3/4) -- yaaaas going pretty well, especially considering the state of our fridge is a little veggie-light. 3. I am like water and will erode my backlog into dust. (3/15) -- The specific tasks on my backlog seem to be helping. So many of them are tiny but I am pretty sure that it's still helping. 4. Go outside. (3/5) -- mostly this has been to run errands, which isn't exactly the transcendent nature experience one might imagine "going outside" would provide. But it's still fresh air, and it's wearing some grooves into my mind: I am a person who goes outside! I do not live only in my hidey-hole! Super excited to try rock climbing--I used to do it in high school but uh....my body is not the same as it was. I have accidentally gathered almost my entire family to join me, which I'm trying to be cool about and not worry too much about how that will go. I feel like I've been working up to something more than my basic bodyweight workouts for a long time, and between axe throwing last week and rock climbing this week, I feel like progress is happening. I don't want to commit to any particular activity/gym just yet but I'm having fun with the explorations. I also got my lab reports back from the doctor, and the cholesterol/ldl/triglycerides were....not good. Not like, I'm gonna die soon bad, but higher than they should be. Kind of a bummer given that I finally feel like I EAT SALADS ON THE REGULAR, but hey, so it goes. Just because I've mentally adjusted to being a person-who-eats-salads doesn't mean I'm eating them *all* that often. But it does mean I am mentally prepared and it gives me motivation to keep focusing on nutrition improvements.

  4. Amazing! I've never seen them live but I DO occasionally make my roommates suffer through me howling Bela Lugosi's Dead at them when we play Gloomhaven. #noregrets Feel better soon!!

    Let's get to it! 1. Workout 3 x per week. Fell behind pace while I was gone, but not too far--I'd like to get back on track this challenge. 2. Salad cluuuuuuuuuuub. Things I love in salads right now: Fresh mozzarella, salami, olives. Lettuce chopped into tiny bits instead of big bits. Provolone. Red wine vinegar. 3. I am like water and will erode my backlog into dust. New strategy. As I approach the end of something I frequently switch to a different backlog thing because why? I dunno. My brain is dumb. So this month the focus is on my last three kickstarter rewards (I KNOW Y'ALL HAVE BEEN REALLY PATIENT ON THESE.) I have a list of tasks I need to complete to get these done, listed behind this spoiler alert b/c they're super boring but it helps me keep it all straight: I've put some time on the calendar, and I'm *also* going to try to work on this in between those times as well. 4. Go outside. I'd like to go outside at least once a day, five days a week. WORKING FROM HOME IS HARD OKAY. Other fun stuff happening this month: I'm planning a local writing retreat. I'm going to try some new (or long forgotten) activities: Rock climbing, a sensory deprivation chamber, and a ninja gym. Gonna buy an adjustable standing desk and new chair for my office -- any suggestions? I feel like I should have more things on my list, but...I don't know. I feel okay about this. I'll add stuff in later as needed.
