For those who are new or behind, my main goal is weight loss, for health reasons as well as I want to look good naked, and fit in clothes I used to. I love 5Ks and kettlebells. I'm struggling with this goal because it doesn't get easier when you get older.  Changing some things up in the new year and clarifying some goals, so this is a test run for 2023 to see what may need adjusting further.
 
(W) I work from home, (3 jobs) as an accountant, so making sure I have enough movement in my day as well as not eating "all the unhealthy things" is important. It's very easy to lose track of how much time I've been sitting trying to solve an issue. Not having "all the unhealthy things" in the house also helps.  I use a 5K training plan that I’ve used in the past, 3 days of intervals and 1 - 2 of strength/cross training days, I may graduate to the 10K and half marathon plans this year, I may not. I just want to keep moving.
 
( R )I struggle to get enough sleep so that shall remain on the list until it's no longer a struggle.
 
(E) I found a ‘diet’ plan, the Dr. that came up with its target audience is post-menopausal women. It’s really a combination of several different things like IF, Low Carb/Keto, and Macros. The common denominator is calorie reduction, of course, unless you burn more than you take in, nothing is going to work! My biggest issue is I get tired of trying to figure it all out and do a lot better when someone just tells me how and when to do it, so I’m putting this on easy mode until I lose the weight! So far I’m down 11 lbs. 🙂 
 
(S) I want to hit at least 7500 steps a day, once this becomes habit I’ll raise it
 
(T) Tracking the things that I eat with an app makes hitting macros and the calorie goal easier, this is in conjunction with E, even though I can eat and not track, doing both is better
 
(L) I’ve been learning Spanish on Duolingo, because this country scares me and I may want to move abroad one day. I also want to learn to play guitar, since I have one collecting dust in my room and it will not learn to play itself. There are plenty of free videos on how to do this on YouTube. Learning something, at least once a week (Duolingo goal is daily) will count towards this.
 
(E) Extra things that make life worth living, date nights with D, 5k’s or more that I may do, motorcycle rides, FL trips, and life events will go here.
 
Checking in to hold myself accountable is key to this being successful, I don't want to have to post bad news here. I plan on posting daily to make sure I'm on track where I need to be
 
The Plan...
 
Workout - Intervals/Kettlebells
Rest - Sleep (7 hours a night)
Eat - Stick to macros and don’t make excuses to eat the unhealthy things
Steps - Hitting my 7500 steps a day goal
Track - using Cronometer
Learn - Duolingo, other stuff
Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and life
 
Update - Daily
Done - 🌈
Not Done - ❄️
 

An additional note, my second grandchild is due to be born before the end of the year, so updates may not be able to be as frequent while I'm traveling :D

It's very easy to lose track of how much time I've been sitting trying to solve an issue.

 

People who sit like gargoyles, unite! (Or is that just me?). I recently started working from home a lot more as my project role changed. I had a desk lift thing at work (think a giant ironing board made of black metal with space for my laptop and note book and everything). This fall I bought a second, smaller one for my antique desk at home. It's a huge win. They were $50 each on craigslist and let me choose between sitting (mostly in the afternoon) and standing (mostly in the morning) throughout the day. I can't recommend this sort of easy adaptation enough. My chair at home is also probably from the 1920s, and I have it set up high enough that when the desk lift is in its low position, the chair compensates for the extra stack of material above the desk.

 

See below (yes, the guest bed is really for the cats. There's a duvet hiding under the sheet though that hopefully stays fuzz-free.):

Here's a link for the company that makes my big one at work:

The big one I have is 36" on a university-issue desk. This one here is 28"x20" I think.

So those of you who have been to Vegas know there is a lot of walking involved...I hit my step goal every day I was there! Didn't track, didn't worry about what I was eating, since most of it I had no control over...sleep was half on target, half not...I'm home, have my house to myself, a lot to catch up on (laundry, work, need to go vote in a bit!)

Feeling a little more human today, after I got my house back to myself after 2.5 weeks, I went to vote, took Luna to the vet, caught up on work items that had been neglected in my absence, got the laundry done, trash ready for trash day, and made a grocery list. What did not get done is the scheduled workout, going grocery shopping, cleaning the guest room, and washing towels. I opted to get groceries delivered today, and will get the workout done after I post this...the guest room and towels will wait until Friday since this is a FL weekend I'll do them with the loads I do then.

I would worry more if I'd acted up...fortunately or unfortunately, Vegas drinks are not strong enough for that to happen on my budget ;)

So I found out that my new boss isn't able to travel much due to a young child at home, not sure how she's going to work that since she's no where near an office and can barely come in for training. My current boss said she's very nice and should work well with everyone, my 'roommate' in Vegas said she seems very scatterbrained and was hired outside of the system, she was told it was because my boss wanted to inform her team herself, which my boss said she found out after it happened so that reason is bullshit.

The only reason I haven't run for the hills is my boss said she's fine with everything, she's negotiated a good severance and bonus and plans on taking time off before looking for a job. 

I am enjoying learning new stuff though :D

Guess it wasn't the flu because she's feeling so much better today...could someone explain to her that 98.9 isn't a 'fever', perhaps your body fighting off something but nothing to be overly concerned about SMH

Anyway, still no idea when houseguests will arrive, I've made an abbreviated goodies list that won't stress me too much to make next weekend, plan on starting (and likely finishing) putting up holiday decorations today. I made the menu, haven't done the grocery list yet but will get that done in the next couple of days. 

I had groceries delivered and got laundry done, that's the extent of my adulting this Sunday. 

Oh, my Xmas shopping is done...as much as it will be anyway.

Still on baby watch, waiting on updates from my oldest would give me grey hair if I had anything but that now.

Sounds like you got on top of a lot of things this weekend. I'm glad D is not terribly sick.

 

It is okay to decide that this year will be low key. You can buy a couple bags of holiday candy instead of making cookies, throw some garland over the doors and call it festive. You are doing tons of adulting taking care of your work and your moms, plus the upcoming grandchild. Save the holiday cheer for a year when that feels like the thing to do.

Thank you for that, it becomes harder to find cheer with each passing year, I do keep telling myself that at least we don't have to go get them and take them back this year....just wish they weren't so comfortable coming and staying for so long.

Found out the mama's will be here on the 22nd, couple more nights of meals I have to plan for because if I leave it up to D it will be 'pizza' or something else like that and spending $100 a night for dinner is not in the budget, at least after we have leftovers.

Didn't get the tree up until Thursday night, discovered the fiber optics are not working on 1/2 the tree, can't figure out where one wire plugs in (likely related) so will likely plan on getting a new one next year.

Got the grandkids package shipped, not likely to get the sleep sack done in time to send so got her something different and hopefully will have it done to take when her brother is born :) 

Workouts have not been happening, we're busy trying to get month end (Nov.) done and train the new person. I have a doctors appointment this morning where I'll finally get my sleep study results.
