    Ahhh.... rain..... we really need it, but resulted in no walk this morning. Did get some stuff done around the house before logging into work though - so there's that

    Juice Bar - Rebel Hang Out

    Athaclena here. Been around off an on for a while - trying to do the "small changes lead to bigger things". Trying to get healthy and get my life - well - more organized. And move out of Atlanta (making progress on that front). Not so much about learning Swedish or German.... learning human language has never been my thing. Computer languages, I'm a polyglot there LOL. I describe myself as kind of a toned down Penelope Garcia from Criminal Minds
  4. Made progress on all fronts at least somewhat the last challenge, although my daily walks started well then fell off the last couple of weeks. So trying to pick back up and keep at it! So this post will look - uh - pretty much like the last challenge post.... Going to stick with simple. 1) Walking 3 - 5 days per week - trying to get up to 10k steps per day - currently trying to hit 7500 on a consistent basis. I've purchased a new "daylight" alarm to help with dragging my rear out of bed at a better hour to keep up with this. 2) Eat more veggies - just need to work them into my diet on a regular basis - also - where possible - eat out less. Can't help eating out when I TRAVEL, but when I'm hope need to stop defaulting to "crap" Definitely ate more veggies and out OUT less last challenge. Need to keep this up - and increase the veggie consumption 3) Continue to work on packing up the house so we can get it on the market and move. I know, I've said it for years, but we're making actual, real, progress! I also need to make sure to do a more detailed clean as I work through areas because once I feel like we've hit critical mass - this house is going ON THE MARKET! Stuff taken to storage in TN and I have some boxes ready to head to GoodWill this week. So making progress here... Just need to keep going! That's it. Those 3 things (with a bit more detail than last round)....

    Athaclena - Just Keep Swimming....

    Things have definitely fallen down the "wayside" on the walking front. I've been exhausted and forgetting to "protect" my morning time by blocking an extra early 1/2 hour on my schedule - so had to be online and ready to go (which meant at least a few minutes of prep) at 9am. I know - for you early folks - I'll cry you a river LOL. But I'm not a morning person - and lets just say that the 9 months I had to be in Downtown Atlanta by 7:30a required a crap ton of caffeine because I had to be on the road by 6:25a - miss that by 5 min and I'd be 15-20 min late *shudder*. On the bright side, I've made progress packing and cleaning the house. The kitchen has STAYED clean the last couple of weeks - WHILE cooking 3-5 times per week (trust me - this is a record - not so much for the # of times per week cooked - but keeping a clean kitchen while doing it LOL). I've managed at least a surface clean of all 3 bathrooms. OH - and I've been eating veggies more regularly. So - I'll take it. Now to swim on to the next challenge!
