I forgot to say what I bought.There was a cute little tea and spice shop, so of course I had to go in there;) I bought 3 teas; decaf mango, rooibos, and peach ginger turmeric herbal , and I bought spices ; Garam Marsala, Garlic zest, and something else I'm forgetting at the moment. Mr. I loves to buy new spices, so he kept finding new ones to add to our to buy pile:lol:

Have you ever thought about performing? I bet you’d be good at it and that your skills would blossom with a hands-on coach.

I just like doing my own thing. I do post the video on the GMB forums, and the coaches give me advice, which isn't  in class thing, but I have found it helpful

I love your videos, thanks for sharing. You're very focused, it looks like a meditation practice in away.

Thanks. I think that is why I enjoy it. I just get so lost in it, and that is all I focus on.

Sounds like you and hubby had a delightful day out! Awesome that you had the courage and worked through that anxiety to try the kayaking, and so glad that you enjoyed it.

It was a very nice day.

Wow, I'm just so amazed by what you do on the rings! That is something I'm a bit scared of.

Thanks for some reason it doesn't really scare me. I mean, I keep the rings low enough that I can touch the ground, but I am still upside down.

Oh thanks so much. I really  want to have that combination of grace and strength.

This weekend:

Our friends couldn't make game night, so we decided to do yard work. Mr. I built a wood frame trellis for our cucumbers. I worked on clearing out our back garden. I used to have our veggies in the backyard, and have raised beds and gravel paths. The beds didn't have many weeds, because they were covered. But a whole jungle of weeds was growing in the path. I'd been putting off that task forever, and decided today was the day. I also bought some oregano and parsley for my garden, as the ones I planted before died.

 

Sunday after church we went with some friends to a lake. Last year I talked about how as a kid I went swimming in lakes, but as an adult I didn't. I was scared because I couldn't see the bottom of the lake, and they are cold, and  1,000 other excuses. @Mad Hatter dared me to go swimming, and since that is my motivation language, I did it. Now, I am trying to do it more often, and get comfortable with it. Mr. I is on board with the idea too. As a teen, he went lake swimming almost every day. So we went swimming. I didn't swim in water over my head. The water at this part of the lake is really choppy, so I didn't feel very comfortable swimming. But I did swim.

 

This week in review:

Well, I was sick the first couple of days, and then Thursday, hubby and I went on an adventure day, so routine was sort of messed up which affected my goals

Morning Routine: not so great, but like I said sickness, and summer play so I'm not sweating it

 

Strong Start: Start at 9:30 again, didn't do on MOnday and Tuesday, but both Wednesday and Thursday I started even earlier than normal, and fit in a workout even though my days were super busy

 

Mindful Eating:

slow down : yes

prayer before lunch; so-so being off routine made this harder to remember. I had my cell phone reminder set, but I was eating at different times. (or not eating when I was sick)

 

 

 

Month wrap up:

Morning Routine:yes, I am doing really well here

Strong Start: I feel like this was the best yet of my challenges for this. A lot less of the I donwanna attitudes

Mindful Eating: struggled a bi at first, hit my stride in the middle weeks, struggled in the las t week. I will have this challenge next  time, so it should be easier. It really is just that it needs to be a habit, and I forget still. But I love the fact that it makes me slow down and take a moment and thank God for the day.

 

Long term

Finish scrapbook; Yes, and gave it to my sister and she loves it

make a date for remodeling bathroom; no and I so don't want to. We need to do it over the summer because we need to take out the hot water heater, but we have so mny yard projects and want to have time for play, not really sure on this one

Really cool that you are daring yourself to do new things. Great challenge! (Except for the getting sick part)

Thanks. I'm hoping that I've now met my life quota for stomach bugs and won't have one again.
