So the move in is pretty much over, time to work on whatever normal will be. Sounds like this mini challenge is just what I need :D

I work from home, I have some flexibility but not a lot, mostly because I don't want to take advantage of being able to work from my home office ;) I need to get into a working and home pattern and try not to let the two overlap too much.

 

So, for the next 4 weeks (including zero week)

The Plan...

Cardio - Treadmill three times a week at least 15 minutes, and one strength training

Update - Post in thread three times a week.

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) and  Food (eat when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful)

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here

Done - 🌈

Not Done - ❄️

 

I want to work on routines...workouts, work, and home/life. I'm tired of stressing about what happens next.

"cardio" 😎

This is why we're friends 😎

 

The Plan...Week 0

Cardio - Treadmill three times a week at least 15 minutes, and one strength training ❄️🌈🌈❄️

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈🌈🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) 🌈🌈🌈🌈❄️❄️🌈 and  Food (eat when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - Missed one treadmill day due to getting my booster and feeling like a truck hit me, second one was due to getting home at midnight due to concert and I'm not as young as I once was :lol: totally worth it though...have to say Halestorm put on a much better show, my crush on Lzzy Hale has nothing to do with that opinion (even D agreed!) :D 

Went to one of D's co-workers baby shower (for her daughter in law) last night, was fun, three (or four?) margaritas might have helped that 🤔

Going to start tracking in MFP again instead of just my spreadsheet, I need the additional accountability.

How are you doing?

Quite good actually, I've been trying to borrow a page out of your book and get all the things done :D

Seriously didn't mean to fall off the face of the earth, especially with such a short challenge!

 

The Plan...Week 1

Cardio - Treadmill three times a week at least 15 minutes, and one strength training 🌈❄️❄️🌈

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈🌈❄️

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) 🌈🌈❄️🌈🌈❄️❄️ and  Food (eat when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - Charity ride on Saturday, beautiful weather in FL, D's bike started leaking some fluid and had to be taken to the shop afterwards though :( 

 

Can I state how much I'm looking forward to the holidays being over so we can cut our trips to FL down to once every four weeks? Three trips in four weeks is going a bit overboard, or six in eight, however you want to look at it, we won't discuss my mother in law being at my house for two weeks out of six. 🤯

One nice thing about these trips is the conversation...we're both enjoying GA more than we expected to, we're even talking about staying here after retirement 😮 We're making plans to build an RV park :D

D is fond of saying we accomplish so much more when we're apart, she has a valid point, we're bad about encouraging the other to veg out and binge watch shows together...she's been out of town since Wednesday night :( I made a plan on what to accomplish while she was away, I managed to stick to it rather well, next on the agenda is cleaning the house (tomorrow, she comes back Monday) and then everything should be set for the mama's to be here for another week over the holidays...while I'm off work and she's not...and no matter how much I hint no one is picking up on the absurdity of this...

 

The Plan...Week 2

Cardio - Treadmill three times a week at least 15 minutes, and one strength training❄️❄️🌈🌈

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈🌈🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) 🌈🌈🌈🌈❄️🌈🌈 and  Food (eat when hungry, stop when full, track to be mindful) 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life events go here - holiday shopping (food and gift) and baking done!

During the end of the year? Are you sure you work in accounting?

Fairly certain ;)

My current position has me making sure everyone is paid accurately and the bills are entered into the system to be paid...mind you, I don't actually pay the bills, because that's someone else's responsibility.

I also have various month end duties, most of which we have to do after the month ends...

Did I mention I make more now than I ever have? Oh, and I work from home?

The imposter syndrome is real...

I can give you some instructions that intrude on work-life balance while a baseball game plays on the radio in the background if it would make you feel better.

I am glad that you are liking Georgia. Six trips to Florida in eight weeks does sound a bit extreme. 

 

You are a saint for entertaining your MIL for a week over the holidays while D is working. 😇

I am not feeling very saintly...I didn't have to go with to pick them up though since the middle child was on his way here...I stayed and got to spend some time with him which was nice before the chaos began.

I feel like I hit the goal of building a routine for working from home and getting back into the routine of working out and doing things besides the moving things. I consider that a win.
