Here's an update. I'm doing well, but my fibromyalgia has been pretty bad the last week or two. I'm doing some training for work. Having some bills show up unexpectedly, but dealing with them. I'm trying to be nice to myself and understand that starting an exercise habit isn't easy and it's harder when I have my body fighting against me. I am really struggling to start a walking habit. Working out three times a week is probably slightly unrealistic at this point so I'm going to adjust that to once a week and stick with that for 4 weeks before upping it.

 

My next goals are going to be focusing on a walking habit, waterlogging and keeping up with the habits I'm already working on.

 

8-19-19 to 8-26-19

  1.  Take my During Measurements 
  2.  Log my water intake for 7 days (do not include my sparkling water at this time) (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
  3.  Take 3 5 minute walks this week. (1, 2, 3)
  4.  Do 1 Workout this week (Wednesday)
  5.  Try another Nerd Fitness Recipe (Broccoli Soup; making the count reach 3)
  6.  I Can't Live Without Caffeine - Level 2 Section
  7. Brainstorm ways to earn an extra 40$
  8. Finish the Mental Mastery Op (12, 13, 14)
  9.  Buy new fruits and veggies for the Cooking Op and Break Your Sugar Addiction
  10.  Break Your Sugar Addiction Level 1 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 cravings defeated) 
  11.  Continue food logging, finance tracking, AM & PM skincare, and PM brush teeth.

Hi everyone! 

I haven't posted in a while - it's been a little crazy around these parts. My stress levels went through the roof - I found out I needed 3,000$ worth of dental work and am struggling to find a dentist in town that accepts my insurance, I am fighting wage garnishment because of my defaulted student loans, have been adjusting to a new work schedule, started babysitting during the week, had my phone shatter (still works though), getting ahold of my lawyer for disability, having my printer break when I needed it, and having the normal stress that comes from a job in the helping field, and well, had to go back on my beta-blocker because of my tachycardia. 

 

All of this led me to feel very defeated, stressed and like a failure. A big motivator in my NF journey was getting OFF the beta-blocker, so to have to be put back on it really miffed me. I know it's temporary and that it's likely just due to my stress. This also put me in a rough boat because until I went back on it, my resting heart rate was around 130bpm, and exercising with that was not advisable. When I first went back on it (last week) I was told to take it easy because of the side effects of dizziness and lightheadedness (I'm really glad I listened because these side effects kicked my a** the first few days) 

 

I let all of my habits slide to the wayside because of all of this. The only ones I really stuck to was brushing my teeth at night, drinking water and logging my food (and even that sometimes happened the next morning) I will say that even with my habits not happening, I've been able to keep my house relatively clean and organized, so that's a win.

 

I am officially respawning today! I am off to a good start. I have habit trackers set up in my room and some of them on my Journal It app. I have a tentative schedule in my Google Calendar. I am off to a good start this morning, having done all my habits so far. Here's the habits I am tracking for the next 30 days:

 

  • Wake up and Get dressed by 12 PM
  • Make Bed 
  • AM Medications
  • AM Skincare
  • AM Brush Teeth
  • Brush Hair
  • Morning Walk
  • A load of Dishes Daily / Shine Sink
  • A load of Laundry Daily
  • 3 PM Workout ( Mon - PT ; Tues/Thu - Walk; Wed/Frid - NF workout)
  • Meal Prep  (Tues, Thu, Sun)
  • Face Masks (Tues)
  • Trash Out (Tues / Fri)
  • Shower/Bath nightly
  • PM Skincare
  • PM Brush Teeth
  • PM Medications
  • Tea before bed
  • Gratitude Log / Log food, water, etc
