During the last challenge I made the decision to stay with my job, need to work on being able to talk about an ask for things that I want or feel like I deserve (personal as well as professional) I really do love where I work so this is not a bad thing, was just a tough year on everyone.


I stopped doing the weight training program I was working on about two weeks ago, my joints were informing me they had had enough...I'm still doing weight training once a week (a combination of several things from the program) my joints and I are both happy about this. I've started doing 'minimum training' on the treadmill again, basically making a deal that if I do 10 minutes I can say I'm done, going to work up from there.


The Plan....

Conscientious: Make 24 hour plan, eat on plan when hungry, stop when full.

Unconventional: Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here (at least one item from two "lists")

Time: Get 7 hours of sleep a night, post at least 3 times a week in my thread.

Exercise: Weights 1x week, 6,000 steps a day, 3 days treadmill workout (when no work event)


I also have 4 "to-do" lists encompassing different areas of what is my life:

To-do to start own business (this is kind of on hold)

To-do general (things that need to be done that I don't want to forget)

To-do personal (includes things like re-staining the cabinet I use as an altar, etc...)

To-do work (includes things I need to do at work that are out of the norm that I don't want to forget)

Complete one thing from two lists each week (and yes, I do have actual lists saved in Google Keep...I know what works for me :lol:)


Last week of October we will be in Oklahoma for part of it, seeing my granddaughter and two of my boys. Not sure what we're doing for the rest of it but it IS my birthday that week, though I would be shocked if D does anything out of what I have planned for it...

We have some, but they are more like overpriced hipster tacos. You are right, I can definitely make some.

No tacos?


What exactly are hipster tacos?

I'm almost afraid to ask...

I want to know where there are no tacos, because I do NOT want to be there!
