  1. Week 2 and 3: Revised walking game a bit. 15 minutes OUTSIDE per day. 6/7 and 4/7 respectively. Y'ALL. I did not anticipate the level of storms. Yes, summer is our rainy season. BUT, it usually doesn't settle into a consistent pattern until later. I will say that on Saturdays I have made it a point to be outside more. I did walk yesterday. This week should be a bit drier too. Revive Pomodoro-esque work schedule. 20 minutes on, 10 minutes off, to be adjusted as necessary. I figure on the slow days, I can intersperse recreation with actual work and I'll come out ahead. This might get shelved. I think I jinxed myself into a crazy busy couple of weeks lol Roll it out. Foam roll/lax ball, etc. my feet 5 minutes a day. They've been wanting to cramp up on me and that is both annoying and painful. I also plan to do some ankle mobility, though I haven't decided how much yet because I don't want to detract from my hip and shoulder mobility (because apparently I'm falling apart at the seams?). 6/7, and 3/7. Consistency has eluded me but we'll get there. Read! I have an ambitious goal of 1 book/week. I don't know how close to that I'll get, but I believe I've got some shorter books stowed/queued. Week 2's book finished with a little caveat; I actually just listened to it instead of reading it lol. Also, can I just say I love the Harry Potter At Home readings that popped up on spotify? (And elsewhere, but Amber's lazy and this fell in my lap so beautifully.) Week 3 in progress Conan Doyle for the Defense and digging it so far. I believe it was @scalyfreak 's recommendation, so props and thanks 😀 Research! I keep kicking around ideas about learning new skills. Do you know how many of them I've followed through on? The answer is zero. Zilch. None. Nada. So, the idea here is to give myself 2 weeks to collect underpants and then DO SOMETHING. About that. I mentioned that I'd signed up for a take on Hamlet's ghost on EdX. Welp, I also wound up signing up for Psychology. So, I think I'm technically supposed to read a whole textbook in the next 2 days because I didn't read (or open the thing for a week or more) and the other one didn't have a time limit. I mean, I'm not after course credit so I don't know that there's any penalty, but my brain just sees a timer ticking down. I'm not usually an impulsive person, so I don't know why I thought this was a good idea to try and do ALL THE THINGS while also trying to read a book per week, and juggling the rest of the things I usually do. In other news, I burnt the ever-loving tar out of some chicken I'd put in the air fryer. I wasn't thinking clearly, and also, clearly wasn't thinking. I'd marinated it with the intention of roasting it off in the oven, but I had this great idea of sticking in the air fryer to cook quicker and not heat the house. HAHAHA NO. That's the 1st charcoal I've produced in my cooking career. Fortunately, only the skin burned and the chicken itself miraculously did not dry out. Also, the dog LOVED the chicken 'chips'. Also, had a good time watching Bob and Doug in spaaaaaace. Also, I say also a lot. That is all.
  2. Two calories is a good sneeze, so were I in your shoes, I would totally count it. But, I admire your perseverance and adherence to the parameters you've set yourself. Also, I like your adjustments for this week. They seem very practical. Coincidentally, I prepped a vegan dish for my lunch this week-ish. But I'll confess have not yet tried any of the meatless meat products because my brain is a two year old... Wait, scratch that. She's 12 and can't see anything beyond Soylent Green whenever Impossible __ or Beyond __ appears on a menu lol 🤦‍♀️
  3. Goals! Revised walking game a bit. 15 minutes OUTSIDE per day, whether we've already hit our step goals or not. This will be more challenging towards the end of the round, because summer is a thing. But I figure if I wait until twilight, it shouldn't be that bad. (Assuming I can stay awake that late lol) By that point it will be less suffocating, and probably not actively storming. Revive Pomodoro-esque work schedule. 20 minutes on, 10 minutes off, to be adjusted as necessary. I spent a good chunk of last week playing card games on my computer because I was bored and in no mood to do the few items on my task list. I figure on the slow days, I can intersperse recreation with actual work and I'll come out ahead. I'll get stuff done that I've been content to shuffle off to the side, and also I can play games at work. Win win. (To be clear, our company is not against us doing non-work stuff, provided we are still doing our regular work. My old supervisor was a fan of using a bit of distraction to disengage the mind and then attack the problem from a different angle.) Roll it out. Foam roll/lax ball, etc. my feet 5 minutes a day. They've been wanting to cramp up on me and that is both annoying and painful. I also plan to do some ankle mobility, though I haven't decided how much yet because I don't want to detract from my hip and shoulder mobility (because apparently I'm falling apart at the seams?).

I do hope that was clean when he put it on..
