    Yesterday was super productive! I spent four hours in the kitchen largely because I found that our sink is leaky. We've secured water in the kitchen for now until we can spot all the places that are trouble spots. I'm going to throw a bucket down there and wash the dishes from making dinner last night, but after that we're eating off paper plates and using chopsticks/one designated spork each. All hail Sandwichlandia! SUMMARY Daily Goals Track Food--CRUSHED IT! Self Care--CRUSHED IT! Creative Outlet--CRUSHED IT! And as a reward, more tonight!

I have the itch to knit and am running out of time to finish this project so I'm going to focus on that. The "If you're sitting you'd better be knitting" rule is in full effect! I'll do steps when my hands need a rest and once I'm done knitting for the day I'll move onto another something. Folding laundry is a likely choice, as we have a couple loads of clean stuff sitting around and yet Gondor calls for Aid to locate socks every morning. Overall I'm just going to get this damn blanket done so I can start working on the other projects I have on deck (there are a lot and heeyyyy all time senstitive).

    What to say to literally ANYONE who feels the need to say something (Sassy Janeway is an excellent image search) I get that desire to present yourself in an empowering way or a way that makes you feel ready to take on the world, but you don't need to be ON all the time. You certainly don't need to put up with anyone who can't handle the HORRORS of undone hair and a makeup free face. <3 <3 <3 Don't apologize for that! You are lovely and amazing no matter what your level of formality because you are compassionate, creative, and kind. I would suggest giving yourself the patience you'd give a child. You're starting this relationship over from the foundation and building it back up into something stronger and more beautiful. There's a lot of joy to be had in that! See if you can't choose to celebrate this process rather than looking at it like an achievement with an end result. Maybe track your biases like you would fitness--write down a bunch of baggage you want to get rid of and cross them out as you let them go so you can see your progress.

    Say the self talk out loud. Good things will feel great and bad things will get corrected into something positive because you seriously don't want to say that crap out loud. DO THIS. Hold hands, sneak kisses, be playful. Inject as much spontaneity as you can! A huge part of Christianity is actively living scripture and you can't do that with your nose in the Bible--so actively live (and enjoy!) your vows. <3 OH MY GOSH HOW CUTE IS THIS! <3 <3 <3 <3

    MUCH. It was a 24 hour blerg with a couple of moments over the holiday weekend. I'm changing the challenge a little bit. During our Anniversary Staycation, I noticed how much time I spend in the house. While I don't begrudge people occasionally hermitting. the fact is that I am home ALL the time and almost always indoors. This morning I carved out some time to drink coffee and knit in the backyard and it was HEAVENLY. Our neighborhood is pretty active; we have kids outside and playing, birdsong, neighbors mowing lawns, and the occasional dog barking, not to mention living up to the name Sunshine State. I'm going to change my challenge goal "10 active hours" to "7 hours outside per week". I don't get anything from that many active hours so I'll keep it a nice bonus accomplishment rather than enforcing a habit. "Oh, wow, a super active day!" This weekend was not particularly productive, although we did do taxes and overhaul our financial plan for the year. Husband was incredibly burnt out, but we did finally make it to that date. As an extra bonus, I took a selfie and felt gorgeous for the first time in years (literally years). I normally make horrific faces when I get within 4 feet of a camera, but my makeup was perfect and my hair was a level of lovely I'd never attained myself. Me to myself: Anyway, today is going to be a BIG chore day. I'm talking kitchen deep clean, dusting, sweep and swab, laundry, making dinner, wiping dog drool off the picture window, and de-furring the couch (which has gotten so gross to me that I don't sit on it, but FEAR NOT I jut have a very low threshold). If for some reason I don't make my step goal today (not bloody likely) but I get the "oh shit, woman" stamp of approval (very likely), I will be satisfied (no I won't, but I'll try). For my next challenge, I think I'm going to add "put effort into appearance". It is a major boost to my self esteem to give a shit about how I present myself. I put care into almost everything and frankly I deserve some of that too. For now, it'll be a little extra accomplishment (like the active hour goal). By the way, buy tissues and watch "Queer Eye" on Netflix.

    Back again for my third challenge in a row! WHOO! I'm building on my last challenge by continuing to log my food, upping my step goal to 12,000 steps, having ten active hours per day (a very high goal to keep it challenging), and spending ten minutes every day doing yoga. The daily schedule still stands (do chores, work out, self care, creative outlet, family time, use journal). A couple extra things: I want to make major progress on the knit blanket I'm making because heeeeyyy there's a due date on that, and also to actually finish binding the journal I made. It'll take an afternoon, tops, so there's no reason to put it off any longer.
