Well change of plans for me. I am going to add a #4:)

I want to be my own boss someday and I need to start now in making that happen. So my #4 is to take a step in that direction. I am getting excited!!!

I have also missed a few days...oops. That just means Tuesday starts day 1 with a clean slate!

How is everyone else doing?

So far I've managed to do my Physical Therapy every day.  :)  I'm considering ways to get rid of my massive G3 accumulation because I only have a couple from that generation that I truly love and the other 400 or so (mostly rescued from thrift, though not in terrible enough condition to consider baiting IMO) are just taking up space in my closet.  Not sure if I want to put forth the effort of selling them or just taking them to the thrift store a few at a time so as not to oversaturate them.  Of course if someone wanted to come pick them up from me...

Congrats on keeping up with your goals, Pokeyonekenobie! I’m drooling at the thought of 400 G3s. XD You must have some awesome thrift/yard sales where you live. *o*

As for my progress... I cooked a healthy meal again today! :D Planning to do so again tomorrow. I stayed low-sugar as well, which is one of my biggest (and most important) hurdles.

I'd like to join!
My healthy habits will be staying in recovery, going to the gym 4-5 days per week and not biting my nails.
Goals:
1. Eat at home
2. List stuff on eBay
3. Get a job
So far, I've been working on a resume and just need a cover letter. I joined the gym with my Mom and we have a trainer two days per week and go do cardio 2-3 days on our own. Listed two things on eBay already and need to take pics of things as I decide what might sell best. Hate to see some of it go but I'm getting divorced and need the money till I get a job!

Welcome..with struggles comes joy!

I paint my nails consistently to keep me from biting. I also knit so it's a nice habit to keep my tension down and hands active. I promise you will find support here!

Great progress everyone!!!

So far I have knit and kept ok active. Piano is my hardest and I did not touch my goal if progress to be my own boss...BUT I did get myself organized and cleaned, so I start fresh for Wednesday

Ok today might not be so productive...haha just not motivated, but ok with that. I will knit for sure:)

I've been "rescuing" them for years-since I learned I could customize them-and have since decided that a) they're not in bad enough condition for me to bait them without remorse and b) I don't think I could customize that many if I tried!   :lol:


I've been good about doing my physical therapy every day.  However, when I went to my 3-month check the other day, my blood pressure was high.  It's been high since I hurt myself and everyone says that it's because I've been stressed and in pain, but it worries me so I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow to discuss it.  I hate going to doctors  -_-  but I will be good and go so I can get this under control before it becomes a real problem.

I cooked! Again! :D I’m on a roll, and actually starting to have fun with meal planning. ^_^ Tomorrow’s project: spicy grilled mushrooms!

That’s still a pretty epic stash of ponies to have found secondhand! I don’t see them often at sales. :shrug: I have had a few epic finds at thrift/yard sales though, so I can’t complain. XD

Sorry to hear about the high blood pressure. :( I’m stressed a lot of the time (anxiety/panic disorders) so I often worry about that... And yes, doctor’s appointments are a pain... I always dread them, even when I know that I really need to discuss things with my doc. It’s just that whole hospital environment... It gives me the shudders. >_<;

I second the doctor thing. Sigh they haven't been good and I know I need too here soon...blah.

Everyone is taking little steps and that's awesome!! I keep track each step I can! Slow progress but I know if I keep it in mind, I will progress towards my goals.

Hmm, I’ll try again this year since maybe I can do better this time around.

My new habits = progressing forward in a positive way to help with my chronic kidney problems. I’ve always had issues and lots of lower back pain. They thought it was possibly ovarian cancer or cysts but could never find anything. It turns out my body produces too much Uric Acid and as a result I’m always full of kidney stones. I’ve had two surgeries so far in the last eight months. One behind the lithotripsy which wasn’t a big deal, but another involved like actually going in there and it hurt. I’m on life long medication but some diet changes and such are also helpful so with that in mind
1) stick better to the foods I’m allowed
2) keep my water and fluid intake up
3) I joined the virtual Potterhead running club in January and have been doing weekly hikes with my huskies and walking at night. I fell out of the habit in June when I had surgery and then strained and pulled my back. I’m hoping to get back on the wagon and finish earning some of my medals.  :lol:

Count me in!

There are a few habits I've been trying to establish with the help of my bullet journal, but I still struggle with some of them. Sleep routine is one... I don't think there's a way for me to fix that in the summer but I keep trying. Right now my priority #1 is to finish my dissertation and that may require me to work strange hours. Besides, I love the white nights... But sleep is important. Previously, I've been trying to go to bed by 11 pm and I always fail. Let me try another approach and aim for 8 hrs of sleep instead.

My second goal is to start running! I've been itching to do this for a while. I found a programme for 11 weeks that starts from zero and goes up to 10k and I think I'll try that - at least I'll aim for the 5k halfway goal! What makes it a bit more difficult is that I have aikido training a few times per week and I currently walk there (30 min one way). So that will jumble the schedule, as there are days you're not supposed to do any exercise, only rest. I'll have to tweak the programme a bit to suit my schedules and make sure I have time to recover. :) I'm planning to start tomorrow!

I realise summer is a difficult time for me to introduce new habits as there's always stuff going on, I'll be travelling a lot and that will undoubtedly mess up my eating and sleeping habits, let alone exercise schedules. But I still think it's a good idea to start sooner rather than later - it should get easier after July when my life goes back to normal.

My goal is to dedicate time to read for ten minutes every day! I used to be a voracious reader when I was little, but lost the habit later in life. I've already checked out some interesting-looking books from the library, so that's a step in the right direction!

Yikes before this officially starts I might have to update my goal to be to ride my bike once every other day instead of every day. The heat is making me so lazy and tired lately. I think that might be a little more realistic for this time of the year for me. :P
