J3NN Posted November 13, 2018 Author Report Share Posted November 13, 2018 Update... Havana Crochet-a-long with the Pippin Crochet Club My crochet is coming along again, I've found my rhythm and I'm enjoying the activity. I'm not sure I have enough yarn for the project but I'm just trying to go with the flow. If I have to buy more I can. It's a much wider scarf than I planned on, so it'll be more like wrap. But that will be good, in my office especially. Skin care I have noticed that my skin is much smoother, but that's about it. I will take pictures this weekend and compare before and after to see if there's anything I'm missing. The routine has become pretty habitual, but I still get annoyed at having to take the extra time every day, twice a day to do this, so I'm looking to see how to make it more simple. Focus on healing my plantar fasciitis I have maintained status quo. I got a bunch of new stretches and then got sick so I didn't do anything. I've started them. Sort of... But I haven't been as consistent with the new ones, they're not as convenient and require special equipment, so I've kept going on the old stretches and I stopped wearing anything but my new tennis shoes which have much better support. I haven't seen the progress I'd hoped for. Not sure what to do. Keep focusing on habits Brush teeth 2x day Floss and special mouth rinse (daily for prescribed time) Process Mail every day it’s delivered Exercise 3x week (2 gym, one hike/walk or home workout) Post Every other day in the forum Steps average 4000/day (tracked by phone) Maintain or lose weight Comments... These are pretty habitual... I lost a lot of ground when I got sick and was recovering so I'm just trying to do what I can to make up where I can and keep at it where I can't. The mail thing fell apart, so I need to get back on that. The gym thing and steps have too, but I'm working on getting those back. With the holidays it's more important to keep at it and do something as opposed to nothing. Last year I gained 15 pounds over the holidays and I do not want a repeat of that. I'm afraid I've already gained a couple so I need to be extra careful. Work related challenge: 15 min/ working day analytics - review or learning - doing and loving, I have accomplished and learned so much, I wish I'd done this earlier. 15 min/ working day content cleanup - also making great progress, I've knocked off all the easy projects and am know having to dig into the harder, more complex ones Complete 31 Examples, Templates, Worksheets & Checklists for website building - I have 68% of these done and time blocked off to finish the rest this week. This will be a huge win for me. In addition, I've also been inspired to revisit my blogging. After the Borderline Bar & Grill shooting last week and the response locally (it's about 2 hours away) I feel like this was a tipping point in people trying to make a difference by doing more. I've been thinking a lot about how I can do that and I think I'd like to create a safe haven on the web... somewhere for people to escape when they're faced with horrible news and tragedy... somewhere to highlight all the beautiful things I see, and the things I'm making too. But also somewhere to teach people how to get involved and make a difference... without having to run for office or become an activist. Let's be honest, a majority of people aren't cut out for that but they still want to make a difference. So I've really been thinking about what I can do and have some ideas. Now I just need time. I've been writing, but I need to pull it all together. So I think that will be my next challenge. Glad to see this one winding down, hope it's end see's the end of my sickness through the season and lots of opportunity to work on my crochet and making a difference. 2 Quote J3NN Current Challenge || Challenges: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 Link to comment
