Healthy Steps – Week 4

On Tuesday, I posted this picture on Weight Watcher’s social media app “Connect.” I also contacted the WW help app to grumble and be reminded about “long term goals.” This was after a week of tracking, three days in the “blue dot zone”, and seven days of hitting my FitBit 10,000 steps a day. Did I give into chocolate? Yes,…

Healthy Steps – Week 3

Right off the bat… I lost 3.6 pounds this week. I’m a little surprised, but so thrilled. It wasn’t a stellar week, and my steps were absolutely tiny, but at least I’m heading in the right direction. Once again, I’m not ready to take on more, so I’m going to stick to my basic set of goals. Tracking – I’d…

A new “Little” adventure

Today, after months of planning, the final “feature” of my summer garden re-do was installed. Meet Little Free Library, charter # 67289. In December, the LFL website had some pretty good sales, so as a “Santa” present, I got myself a library. I had to paint it (harder than it looks because the hardware had a special screw)… But the…

2018 Goal List

It’s really easy to write down all the things I’d like to accomplish over the coming year. What’s hard is remembering I only have so much time and energy. This is from a Weight Watcher’s exercise about mastering your time. While the list below is long (really long), I’d also like to think it’s doable over the coming 365 days.…

2016 Goal List – Review

On this last day of 2016, I spent the day on a bit of a birding quest, trying to find the last five birds to complete my goal of 150 species in 2016. In the end, I remained at 145. Still, I am feeling good about this goal. Looking at this list, there is NOTHING about the following: Putting on…
