Sorry to be away from your thread for so long!! Life has been kinda crazy. Lol

 

 

This is an awesome realization! I know I feel better if I eat some nuts everyday but I have to limit it to a 1/4 cup and that works great for me :D

 

 

I've found that a lot of foods I used to enjoy just aren't worth eating anymore. So WOOT for avoiding the temptation of the chips before your food came!!  :triumphant:

 

 

Definitely sounds par for the course as far as house projects go. Lol. Good luck with this new set of samples!!

 

 

I can't learn things the first time either. Lol. But I just keep working and get it eventually :D And then I know that I really really know it!!

 

 

Yay for YouTube!! And yay for Star Trek :D And extra yays for the beach!!

thanks, no problems on being away form my thread for awhile, keeping up with everyone's thread all the time would be a 26 hour a day job! :)  I don't think most people do learn things the first time, most of us have to work at it. And then, like you said, we know it. We did choose blinds. We went with the more expensive option, because we liked it better. And we are at the beginning of our remodeling budget, so we still feel like we have money. By the end we'll probably be looking at Walmart for their clearance sales :)

Made it through another challenge!

 

6 WEEK WRAP UP

 

GOAL #1; Follow my kettlebell program

Done, This was easy, as I enjoyed it. Looked forward to my workouts. I did get a bit tired of doing the swings near the end, but still managed to do them.

GRADE A

POINTS 3/3 STA

 

 

GOAL #2 Play 2 x a week

Had fun with this. Played around with some new poses or new KB moves.Kept it light and fun. I actually made great progress on my wall handstand, and am now almost vertical

GRADE A

POINTS 2/2 DEX

 

 

GOAL #3 Eat less sweets,nuts, and protein powder, using complicated system of points. Also no eating after dinner

As I wrote about earlier, I totally messed up on the writing of the challenge. My goals and numbers were very wonky. And the system was way too cumbersome. And way too many things to focus. This goal reminded me of the need to keep it simple. First two weeks were great, then I quickly burned out, and the next two weeks were F's, then I tightened it up and earned C's.

Things I did: best thing; I no longer eat after dinner and love this. Keeps me from bad food choices and I actually sleep better at night.

Hardly had any protein powder

Ate less sweets,

I did eat less nuts, as I now measure and keep it to one serving. But I don't think I'm dropping them They are my treat and when I don't have them I feel deprived and go for other worse stuff. Mostly mental, but I decided to keep them.

GRADE C

POINTS 3/6 CON

 

 

Life Goal: Write my home remodel to do list and do things;also build a cold frame greenhouse

Done! Really happy with what I got accomplished. Blinds ordered, cold frame done, and I have a list of painters to call and get bids from

GRADE A

Spent Saturday walking/caching on the beach: I wanted to do a crow pose on the rock or at the very least stand on it and be king of the mountain. but it was too slanted and wet for me to climb up

 

 

Looks like Pt. Defiance, beautiful day, you were lucky:)
