  1. Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out/Deep Clean for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR + 3 Now that my home is under control, I want to start incorporating more physical movement. Stretch and/or meditate for 10-15 minutes 5x per week (DEX +2) The "enrichment teacher" for my summer school led us in a BEAUTIFUL breathing exercise today that I have stopped to do multiple times when I was feeling stressed about the return to school during a pandemic. You trace a figure 8 on your palm in inhale on the first look, exhale on the second loop. I loved
  2. I know these woes! I've gone from a woman's 26/28 to an 18/20 over the last year and a half. It was such a battle trying to decide where/how to update my wardrobe, especially for when I needed to transition to the in-betweens. Food for thought: do you anticipate staying at your current measurements, or are you likely to lose more inches? Let that dictate your current choices. In my in-betweens, I did a lot of second-hand clothing: there is an upscale consignment shop near me, and I also used Poshmark. I was able to get a few staples for work-appropriate clothing. Not my favorite pieces, b
  3. This is such a cool challenge! You've already made so much progress! I'm so excited to see your final flip!
  4. Sleep is so dang important! I'm glad you got some good sleep!
  5. Thank you! Me too. I missed my second dose yesterday because I don't have "purse pills" yet... and I could definitely feel the difference at about 3pm. I'm starting to really understand my ADD/ADHD students who need that lunchtime dose.
  6. Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out/Deep Clean for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR + 3 Today was the day. I did it. I cleaned my car. I removed 2 trash bags full of trash and about 6 loads of various “things” to go into the house. It didn’t even take that long. I’m finding that with my low dose of Ritalin is taking away those barriers and making the insurmountable feel surmountable! I then went and got a car wash and vacuumed out my interior. Ahhh. It feels good. I think I’m going to give myself permission to relax tomorrow. Stretch and/or medit
  7. First daily update on my new goals... WOW... My Ritalin generic worked pretty much instantly. I felt focused and how I usually do when I get "focused spurts", as I used to call them. I cleaned some more, but I did it in a methodical way, instead of being distracted every twenty seconds. Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out/Deep Clean for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR + 3) In the last 2 days, I have torn apart my bedroom, donated 3 bags of clothes, taken out 3 bags of various trash from the bedroom, and listed a dozen things on my loc
  8. Honestly, thank you! Getting a diagnosis (and treatment) for struggles that I have been beating myself up over for my whole life is such a relief. As I said to my parents, "This means I'm not just a messy piece of sh&t!" I teach middle school English. I'm one of those people who went undiagnosed for so long because I am CRAZY good at coping skills. I have 3 calendars at work at any given moment (desk pad, daily planner, and digital calendar. I have alarms and reminders set for everything. If it isn't written down, I won't remember it. If I don't have push notifications, sticky
  9. I demand so many curl pictures, please.
  10. Simple, straight-forward, and if it's working.... YES!
  11. I'm inclined to agree with you. I actually just received a diagnosis of ADHD (something I've LONG suspected) yesterday, and am picking up meds to treat it today once they're ready. I think it makes sense that this is something I focus on treating/improving/working on right now. I'm also a teacher in... pretty uncomfy times... I think I'm going to modify my goals moving forward. NEW GOALS (I've written the modifications in purple to show the changes). Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out/Deep Clean for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR +
  12. Checking back in! It's been a few days, but I'm feeling pretty decently about how things are going. Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR + 3) I just have such low motivation for this right now. I'm not sure what the cause is. I've definitely been doing lots of cleaning, but I know I need to actually dedicate some time to some strength and cardio. Stretch for 10-15 minutes 5x per week (DEX +2) Did some this morning and plan to do another session this afternoon. I'm so
  13. Update! Today is my mother's birthday, and she is in my Rona bubble. I will be bringing curbside takeout to my parents' home tonight from her favorite restaurant. Still no word on what fall will officially look like in my district. Sigh. My Goals: Physical Health (STR, DEX, CON) Move/Work Out for 20-30 minutes 3x per week (STR + 3) I'll be lugging around bags of donations today. Is that technically a work out? No... but I may do some dance fitness YouTube videos this afternoon. I'm so SORE today, expecially my lower back. Cleaning is no j
  14. Keep us updated on the tail! It looks cool!
  15. MEEEEEE. It is MEEEEE. Honestly, my kitchen was in "ok" shape when I tackled it on Monday. This is why I had the energy to go through those 2 cabinets and organize. Today is one of my "3 sets of 10 minutes" days. I just finished up my summer school virtual class, so now I'm thinking about how to organize that. I think 1 set will be a laundry-put-away. Another will be a pick up of my bedroom. The third... Hmm. Maybe a "continue filling the food pantry donate bag" activity. That's a good one, actually. I panic bought some soup cans at the beginning of quarantine and... I don't eat m
