Chesire tries to stay upright

This is going to be a purely survival maintenance challenge.  I just want to stay upright in most ways.

 

Upright fitness:  do the dang thing, even if it is cold outside.  Walk the dog and do only the few things that need the bar outside, then rush inside to finish.  Do not just ball up on the couch.  

 

Upright nutrition:  Keep a plan.  Meal prep, and especially keep the party calories in mind.  But! A l little extra weight isn't as important as having fun and socializing.  Do not just eat all the things.

 

Upright habitat:  Simply pick up after myself.  Don't leave the room empty-handed/ put the thing away.  Do not just drop everything just inside the door.

 

Upright me:  Do the things I enjoy and what I know bring contentedness.  Do not give in to the overwhelming seasonal bustle that doesn't even apply to me!

 

Upright actually:  Do enjoy a social drink.  Do stay upright.  Do not forget to alternate with water.

Found a new "upright."  Stay up right while short-legged doggly (this is her first snow) wants to blaze a new trail plowing through 14+ inches of snow.  Precarious and apparently awesome to slide hither and thither.

Haha! Core work, for sure.

No, I'm not.  It's just December.  This is December.  Everyone else's crazy is not mine.  I don't really need to do anything more than usual.  And there is just as much time if I use the clock, not the sun.  

 

But, seriously, where did I put the wall charger for my phone?  Hazards of picking stuff up while distracted as a squirrel on crack.

My own 12" tall dogs enjoy making tunnels when we get a good snowfall. :P I recommend yaktrax, or something similar if there's ice underneath.

Yaktrax are the only way I survive the winter!  And they do a great job training me to take off my shoes so I don't wreck the floors, which means slightly cleaner floors too-> less housework.  Anything for less housework.

As someone who used to be a certified ACE personal trainer, you'd think I'd remember about SMART goals.  In other news, I will be setting specific goals and plans for the upcoming year, instead of winging it the whole way.  

 

It amazes me what we can recall for someone else but forget for ourselves.

This weekend totally busted this challenge.  Celebrated way too much with very little water.  Seeing people again was worth it.  And as a result strength did not happen the next day.  or the next because brain said we don't do strength this day and I forgot.  Oh well.  Next day, try again.
