    I originally joined in 2012! And you have to DIG to find the forums now. Not just a simple link from a breadcrumb from the front site......

    Wednesday morning - woke up with a headache *sigh* and had an early morning meeting - so bailed on walking. I did get my 5k steps in yesterday - and cooked a healthy dinner - and cleaned the kitchen. So YAY

    I agree, most of us are HERE, because we're leveling up at "life" and building routines before we focus on HOW we're going to better our fitness. Whether it's cross training, running, martial arts, yoga, etc. Maybe an addition to the description\classification? Just thoughts I mean, MY ULTIMATE goal is to get back into yoga. But right now I feel like an elephant trying to do ANYTHING. So getting my life smoothed out and dropping a bit of weight so I can, oh, touch my toes is where I'm at Not that I'd be laughed at over there, but it feels LESS embarrassing over here.... you know? As an added bonus, we're generally in the same boat over here - so my tiny goals (because I've learned I can't have 5 or 7) can (and has) inspired other people to take one step at a time. Those LITTLE steps have had me build a few needed things into my routine - like remembering my supplements which make a huge difference in MY day to day I might be able to chip in on an occasional challenge - keeping up with ONE thread. But anyone that's seen my challenges knows I've got a crap-ton of stuff going on. But until I'm travelling again..... more hands make for less work

    Was slow to get up this morning - BUT - managed to get in a walk. Now to do that more than once this week LOL.

    Made a day trip to Chattanooga to take care of a UPS mailbox so we can go ahead and move our Side Biz up there. Swung by the storage place to go ahead and lock in the other big unit - and it's completely changed hands. They didn't have the computers up to rent a new unit - and so I have a 4 day (they're going to extend it) reservation and he's going to "try" to reserve at the same rate. He seemed concerned that it would be 3 weeks before we could get back up there. I'm like - DUDE - that's why I'm here TODAY..... and I'm going to to Atlanta right after we grab some food. I'll start scoping out other big units in case they don't honor the agreement. Now that everything is all packed nicely in one unit - it wouldn't be THAT big of a deal to rent a truck for 1 day and move it if they REALLY piss me off......

    More storms. UGH! Up and drinking coffee. I think hubby and I are going to try to swing up to Chattanooga today (it's only about a 90 min drive - see - not THAT big of a move....well.... if it wasn't for all of the STUFF) to take care of some stuff (getting a PO box so we can register our Business there, get the 2nd storage unit, etc.). So busy weekend ahead - and of course we'll get a few storm systems as Hurricane Barry (it made Cat 1) makes landfall (which it is doing literally right now)..... If any of you are in the path of Barry - stay safe and dry!

    Storms moved through last night. So a bit of relief this morning - and I S-L-E-P-T. Hopefully I can focus and finish up the fiddly bits documentation at work on.... oh wait.... a client moved code to production this morning and it's failing. *sigh* I'll shoot for a lot of walking\packing this weekend

    OK - the daily headaches are getting to be an absolute drag. Haven't had any for WEEKS - and now this week I do. *sigh* I'm pretty sure they're weather related..... I can't wait to move - not sure it'll help, but it'll help in OTHER areas. The only way to completely fix the weather related headaches is move to the desert. And that's just not gonna happen LOL. Had to work early this morning - so no early morning walk. Yesterday I didn't get quite to 5k steps - but did a lot more than Tuesday. ONWARD!

    Tuesday update. Low level headache from noon-ish on. Didn't get my steps. Slept for crap last night. Woke up with another headache (pretty sure it's the weather this week - pop up thunderstorms). So no walking this morning. We'll see how it goes the rest of the day. Even if I don't get it done today - not throwing in the towel. Will try again tomorrow.....

    I.... uh.... took a much needed break...... Quick update - then I'll get a challange going..... Still a consultant with the same company - travel has slowed quite a bit (we'll see how long that lasts). Lots of changes at my company, which I think stressed me out more than I realized. I'm STILL in Atlanta - BUT - progress has been made in the Chattanooga move. A couple of weeks ago we emptied\moved 2 storage units and the storage\tool shed at hubby's parents' house to a storage unit in Chattanooga. Now we're working on boxing up OUR house and slowly moving stuff up. I figure probably a trip a month and we'll be ready to pop our house on the market by Oct\Nov. Hubby is now working. Not a FT gig, but he's been doing the "con circuit" setting up lan gaming areas. Some pretty big ones - basically WAS volunteering, finally convinced the guy that it could be done better - and is now getting paid and has helped them upgrade their experience with actual enterprise gear rather than throwing together crap. He requires a lot of downtime between gigs to recover - but he's doing something he loves and getting paid for it - so BONUS! With everything going on - I finally took a break this weekend. My company takes 2 days for the 4th of July. I had planned to work on packing. Hubby tried to get me to go with him for his con this weekend to "getaway". Orlando in July? Heck no - it's crowded, hot and muggy. Yes, I love Disney\Universal - but - that wasn't what I needed. I ended up basically relaxing for 4 days. I was rested enough I got up EARLY today and walked. For the first time in.... um..... I'm not going to go back and read my threads to find out LOL. Anyway - I'm back for this challenge - and babystepping away - again
