I've started creating several different Word docs with exercise lengths grouped by length or type. Once of these days I'll figure out how to create YouTube folders!

Yesterday I devoted 6 timer sessions to working through several inches of paper in a box that shipped a case of paper (10 reams of letter sized, so it's bigger than a banker's box). Today I completed 12 sessions, broken into 4 groups of 15 minutes each, for an hour total, leaving a bare inch of odds and ends that fit in the top of the crate below the now empty box. I spent a little extra time to straighten up the area. I'm pretty knackered now, but pleased with my progress.

Since the dining room isn't on my monthly focus yet, but has a great deal of paper clutter, I decided to begin doing timer sessions during the day, between calls as I'm working from home on a call center. Sometimes I can get through a 5 minute session without a new call coming in, sometimes I have to stop the timer once or twice before that 5 minutes is done. But I've made definite inroads in a stack of boxes that's crowding me in where doing my telecommuting. It will be wonderful when I make it all the way through, and is complimenting my March focus on desk work and filing in the other room, that I work on outside of the "work day."

I am so proud of myself! emoticon emoticon emoticon My weight's been up, since I've been meditating in the evenings and not fitting in exercise. So I wanted a longer workout this morning. I decided to give Amy's 35 Minute Fat Blasting Cardio Challenge HIIT Workout another try, knowing I didn't want to let it bum me out like before, when I reacted to her frequent exhortations (which got increasingly forceful & loud) to push harder on the last of 3 rounds. I commented on YouTube 4 months ago, and added this comment today:

Ha! Figured out how to make this work for me--a flexible & fairly fit senior with joint issues. I keep to the low impact options, do walk out on fists (can't put body weight on wrists), but reach above my head between moves to keep heart rate up. And after the second round, lowered volume to eliminate the "pep talk" to push harder, and cut my speed to maintain form and finish, freely sweating, but feeling safe. Yes!

As I've said in a couple places, my campus is closed till noon due to a power failure. They sent a text last night about 9:15, but I'd headed to bed about an hour earlier, so didn't see it. I got up to my alarm as usual, dressed for the Y, and picked up my phone. Saw the text from school and from my coworker - she hoped I'd gotten the message, and wished me fun sleeping in! I *briefly* considered going back to bed and hitting the Y later in the am. But I didn't!! I went to the Y at 5:00, and came home and invited my DH to go out to breakfast. We did, and now I have time to get to a couple tasks I wanted to get done over the weekend. I'm proud of myself!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hennaed my hair this afternoon, which also means I don't need to wash it in the morning, now that we're back to nighttime temps in the 30s! I also chopped some of a big head of red cabbage--more than enough for tonight's dinner salad and 2 containers of extras for lunch salads.

I have a bad habit of not keeping up with emails, and letting them (many unread) just pile up in my inbox. This happens at home and at work. I started deleting some from the work inbox, and got under 1000 (not sure where I began); I think I'm in the 700s now. Then I realized I had over 2000 in my sent folder! Today, after I got tired of working on my application, since calls were slow, I was able to delete 350 sent emails! emoticon emoticon Feeling really good about that! emoticon

I remembered a tip I read on a blog here, and used it to calm myself down when I was really irritated and indignant over a laundry room issue and getting myself worked up. While sitting with Dora, I breathed in for 4 counts, paused for 4 counts, exhaled for 4 counts, paused for 4 counts, then did the pattern again. I ran through the pattern 3 or 4 times (sometimes exhaling a little longer to get all the air out), and got out of my head, and the upset just sort of faded away. It was great! I need to remember to try this more often with different upsets.

Even though I stayed home today with a cold, and never ventured outside, I finally got in a little exercise--Amy's 10 Minute Low Impact Cardio HIIT Workout

I worked up a sweat and had to lessen the intensity a little on the second round of 5 moves, but nothing too strenuous, and she emphasized if you showed up today and you are moving, then you are successful! emoticon emoticon

Delegating tasks to others is something I have had trouble with for years at work. So we have 4 new part-time workers and I was able too let go of a small piece of the posting grades and let Brendon do it. And THEN, since he finished so quickly, I managed to let go of the next step too!! emoticon That's pretty big for me and I'm proud of myself for stretching to include the 2nd part I let go of...!!!! emoticon emoticon

I had a successful adventure after work. With yesterday's southbound bus full and passing us by, I decided to try something I've thought of before: going north to the end of the line (just a few more stops, then turning around and coming south before it gets as crowded. The southbound bus came and stopped 2 minutes after I got to the station (I often wait 10-15 minutes, sometimes longer), but after ~ 10 minutes, I caught the 150 north. Turns out he was going to the terminal, not looping around, but I only had to cross the street to catch the southbound bus. I got a good seat and got home in about an hour.

I studied the new schedule--buses are moving out of the transit tunnel starting tomorrow (a transit employee got on our bus at one of the stops to make an announcement about the change), and saw I can get off one stop before the last one going north, go one block, and catch the southbound bus at its starting point. No more of this standing in the aisle, hoping I get a seat when folks get off at the Chinatown station. Plus, the new stop has 10-12 buses all stopping at the same place which will cause all kinds of snarls and backups! It may take me longer, but it will be a less stressful commute.

Last night I went around my apartment and three away some things that needed picking up. Just a small victory, but I am glad I was able to do it.

This morning I made it out of bed, even though I wanted desperately wanted to roll over under the covers and go back to sleep.

I'm on a week's vacation, and have gone to the Y twice already (my usual is MWF) - TuTh in this case. I wanted to commit to going even while not at work, but wasn't sure I could/would. So I'm very pleased with myself for continuing my exercise - plus going in between 7:00 - 8:00 is considerably easier than at 5:00 on my regular schedule. emoticon

I'm making progress dealing with financial matters like catching up with tracking my spending and saving the documents Tresa sent me that we discussed in our phone meeting. I'm not scared of this stuff anymore. I don't feel super confident or knowledgeable, but I enjoy working with it, and gaining understanding slowly. It's having someone I trust to help me. Very empowering.

I'm very proud that I made it driving back from Tumwater through some heavy rain in places where the wipers were going full-speed, I had to slow down, and visibility was extremely poor. I was cautious, but not truly anxious. The worst thing was having the lane lines pretty much invisible. But I just kept saying my affirmations and took my time.

A virtual filing success!

I was disappointed when I didn't find a packing list in my Vacation hanging folder, in fact there was almost nothing there. So I checked my laptop and found a Vacation folder in my documents with cool stuff like Cat Care, Packing List, Travel Notes for going south to Oregon, and Vacation Prep! I've printed them out, will see what may need to be revised, and when I'm done, will put the in the hanging folder for next time!

I also have a paperwork success to report. As mentioned in the chat thread, I had done at least 1.5 hours--in 10 minute segments--of sorting/purging/filing. I pulled my recliner over several feet, did a bunch of sweeping and vacuuming, consolidated and re-stacked boxes, then repositioned th recliner next to the end table, creating a wider path and easier flow from the hallway into the living room! The 2 stacks are higher than the 3 were, but I love the increased room and flow and the tangible evidence of progress--like an empty box!

I've been wanting to put the household paperwork - mostly bills and such - away for a long time. I have a bad habit of doing my online banking, then stacking the paid bill in front of my keyboard. Well, my stack runneth over!! Big time!!

I cleared a file drawer in a file cabinet right next to my computer, but it's been just hangin' out there, empty, for quite a while. So today, I took a bunch of old bills I'd put into file folders and put the folders in the drawer. THEN I went thru the stack of paid bills and filed them each in the correct spot. I am so very proud of myself!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The last part of this will be to go through each folder and organize the bills by date. I intend to keep a year's worth at a time. So I'll cull out any pre-2017 bills, organize and staple the 2017 ones, and put the 2018 ones in order. That way, when I switch over at the first of the year, I can pitch the old batch, staple the 2018 bills together, and I'm off to the races again!! emoticon

As I've mentioned elsewhere, I start Fridays off from today until mid-Sept - our college's summer schedule. So I decided that I want to maintain my current M-W-F routine of biking at the Y, even with Fri's off. So I got up at 6 today and went first thing. During the week, I get up before 5 on exercise days and 5:30 on Tu/Th. I am willing to "sleep in" until 6 on Fri's and then go to the Y. I must say, I'm feeling very self-righteous!! emoticon Which still gives me Sat & Sun to sleep without an alarm. emoticon I think it's going to work very well for me.... emoticon

While I sorry I didn't get the massage I had planned as my birthday gift to me today, I'm thrilled that I cleared so much of the living room floor, plus the pathway into the kitchen, and got boxes out of the living room and my bedroom and into the storage closet. Got some extra hand washing done and errands run, so a successful day that helps me feel more caught up and in control after being sick, then putting so much energy into job stuff.

I went back to the Y last week...the 1st since the holidays. My cold hung on longer than I thought it would. But I resumed my M-W-F pattern from last year. The success I'm reporting is that I got up at 5 and went this am also. I think a few weeks of this and I'll be back in the ole groove!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm sure we have had some successes since July! One I had yesterday was that one of my smoke alarms chirped a couple of times in the morning. I couldn't tell if it was the one in the bedroom or hallway (they're only a few feet apart). I was surprised I could find a small package of 9-volt batteries, and put one into the hallway smoke alarm. emoticon I had only been home a few minutes that evening, when I heard an alarm chirp again, so I took the one I replaced in the hall and put it in the bedroom ceiling alarm. No chirps since! The biggest success was being able to quickly find what I needed--especially in the morning while getting ready for work! emoticon

BIG success for me today!!!! I took the stack of paid bills that was almost as high as the CPU and sorted them by vendor as the first step in organizing my household finance paperwork. I was gonna get them into folders too but discovered the box of folders on the shelf was actually EMPTY!! And since I'd already been to the store twice today, I decided to wait and get some tomorrow. Now WHO would put an empty box back on the shelf??? Surely not I...? emoticon emoticon

I had a short touch base with Tresa late this morning, napped afterward, then spent quite a bit of time reformatting Excel sheets I got from her with my spending categories. Since I'm not an Excel whiz, it was a substantial time investment. But I froze the rows and columns I needed, and finally managed to change the format of column headers for my monthly sheets (since they didn't match the yearly one I was given). It's ready now for inputting spending. And I broke it into 2 sessions with watering my beautiful balcony flowers and repotting my newest addition, a Martha Washington geranium. Then when I finished the second session, I went for a walk in the mild evening weather & chatted with my sister on my cell phone. It felt good to balance out all that mental activity and concentration & electronics use with plant care, and then exercise and connecting.
emoticon (I wish we had a balance scale emoticon, but I guess this sort of works.)

I decided to wait to go to the Y until tomorrow (better coordination with my biweekly late shift at work), which gives me some extra time at home - so I took the time to clear almost all the stuff off the left side of my bathroom sink. Yippee!! I talked weeks ago about creating an OO there, to match the one on the right side, and by clearing all the paper there (mostly grocery lists and receipts), I got down to countertop in some spots! Won't take much to finish my OO.... emoticon emoticon

Finally! I've been chipping away at the papers collected in a box under my desk for a few minutes after my shift many days. And I finally got through the last one, and broke the box down and put it in the recycle bin. Of course that wasn't the *only* box down there emoticon but it was a real success for babystepping my way through purging clutter! emoticon

Got to a few items that have been on my mental to-do list for a while:

1. A grocery run to Costco--so nice to do on a weekday, when lines were shorter! Along with the usual produce and salad 4-pack, I picked up an 8-pack of black olives, since I was down to a single can--I sometimes add them to salads.

2. Cleared some space in the bedroom, including finally boxing up some holiday clothing and jewelry that had just been sitting around, waiting to be put away!

3. I cancelled my last scheduled haircut when it conflicted with a friend date, so I finally called to see when I could get in for a cut with my favorite stylist, and she had an opening this afternoon!

4. I'm past due for a henna treatment, but I was out of my dollar store shower caps (they work better than clipping a plastic grocery bag on my head, since they have elastic so less chance of drips, and at 8 for $1 they are cheap!). So I finally picked up a couple of packages and only picked up 2 other items.

So a successful and productive day!

Blessed Be, Amanda

I know it's silly, but a success for me to finally get around to this. I have a Spark Friend, Cheryl, who lives close by, and we occasionally go walking together. I'm always misplacing her phone number, so I finally got it programmed into my cell phone. While I was there, I put a 1 in front of my sister's name, so it would go to the top of the contact list, and added a prefix to BIL's name so it would drop further down, since I almost never need to call him. Also put in supervisor's number. Now I just need to figure out how to create a folder for work to put in a few more numbers, including the inclement weather line, without clogging up list of friends or more frequently used numbers. Anyway it feels good to be getting more organized with this electronic tool, so that it saves me more time and better serves me. emoticon emoticon

Today is a Monday of a 3-day weekend for me. Instead of staying in bed until I naturally wake up, I chose to set my alarm for 5:30 (one of two work-day rising times) so I could go to the Y by 6am!! emoticon DH said he wanted to go too, so we got there a bit after 6 (since he wasn't already up when I got up) - he rode for 25 mins and I rode for 30 mins. Feels really good to make a emoticon decision in favor of my health...rather than just the "easy" way out...!!

So glad you reached out. Enjoy your sister time!!

Tuesday I went to my therapy session super anxious about Wednesday's inspection of my apartment. I was in tears because the anxiety was intense that I was stuck. She asked me to tell her what needed to be done. She sat down next to me with her notepad and helped me compile a list with everything broken down into simple small steps. What a huge relief and so when I got home I used the list to get things done. I was able to get a lot accomplished....ended up with a nice clean apartment....better yet I passed the inspection with flying colors.

I've had plans on several weekends lately, so haven't made a phone appt yet with the financial advisor I mentioned a while back that my therapist recommended, and whose philosophy appeals to me. I just sent an email asking if she will have time Friday morning or Saturday afternoon. (My sister is coming up Friday--we both have Veteran's Day off, staying over and returning after lunch Saturday.) I was nervous the whole time emailing: I really want to begin this process, but I'm terribly nervous, with lots of programming getting triggered. So I feel proud just reaching out again and trying to get an appointment made.

I cleared out a different sort of clutter--phone messages. I listened to them all, deleted many from months ago, wrote down a few messages or numbers to call. Also called the Census folks finally to say I mailed my response in--and to mention many of the messages gave the phone number and or case number too fast to easily write it down!

2 successes today concerning the Fitbit I won in our Spring Fling Wellness challenge:

I *finally* got it out of the box (after procrastinating for ~ 3 weeks), downloaded the installation wizard, figured out how to charge it and actually get it to fit on my wrist (which took a lot of effort). Once I got there, I could not figure out how to track or set goals, or how often or for how long I need to charge it, or navigate the site--though I tried a number of links.

When my frustration hit overwhelm, I backed off and set it aside. That, too, was a success for me, deciding to put my efforts where I felt confident and capable, instead of confused.

Blessed Be, Amanda

This is significant for me. I have a couple of parts (Bossy & Missy) who love to organize and plan, and jointly make up my Planning Department (they even have a little desk sign--which, sadly, rarely gets used). And while I pay lip service to wanting to set aside planning time, I rarely get around to it. So after putting it on my assignment list (a new morning journaling routine) but not following through, Bossy was crying and Missy was mad & complaining about how they get neglected and ignored, even though we're making time to exercise or clean regularly, as well as all our fun & relaxing activities.

So that afternoon I spent about 10 minutes with my old planning journal I had unearthed from the dining table piles, outlining tasks with individual steps for checking off for this week and beyond. That was Monday. Then yesterday, spent over 15 minutes listing (14 items!) and gathering materials to keep myself occupied for about 3 hours here at the car dealer during my service. The fact that I had pulled everything together along with my rolling bag, just waiting to pack once I put in my laptop, meant I wasn't scrambling desperately in the morning or making myself late.

My success is more emotional, in that I'm trusting myself to continue making progress, and choosing happiness even when things aren't as I wish they were.

I had been doing really well, but today, I fell off the wagon-pizza and then chocolate.

The success is that I am retooling immediately, and getting back into my groove.

But first, a nap...lol!

This morning I began to tackle the dishes that have been in the sink for who knows how long. Thank goodness they had been rinsed. lol I've put a good dent in them. More to go, but I feel good having gotten some done. Just getting started is huge progress for me. Getting started is hard for me, but once I do it gets so much easier.

I am continuing to eat less, to not snack, and to track my blood glucose. I also believe I can be at a certain range, and am achieving it, step by step. I am averaging 170 blood glucose now. Yay! More improvements to come.

Congrats on your success.

I am continuing to walk daily even though I am at a low ebb. I just walk slower.

I am continuing to eat well, count carbs, and have better blood sugar readings.

I am beginning to have hope for the future, to live life within my limitations, and to be happy each moment I can.

I drank 6 cups of water 3 days in a row, and then last night reached 8 for the first time since last summer, I imagine! emoticon Funny how I'm feel more thirsty since I started drinking more--like my body is getting used to having more water, and is telling me to keep it coming!

I was tired and got caught up watching Downton Abbey episodes (just picked up newly ordered season 6 DVD at library after work Friday), and decided to claim my unused Day 7 day of rest on my challenge (& still earn 10 challenge points). But as I got in bed, I realized I'd lose my perfect streak since (& before) New Year's of 5 or more minutes (often 10-15 or more) of intentional exercise (strength training and stretching) every day. So I got out of bed, got down on the floor, and did a core routine I made up that takes 7 minutes. So I kept my streak alive, and I'm very proud!

After storing some holiday boxes, I cleared a bit of junk off the couch, cleared a spot between the TV and balcony door, and did some vacuuming. The living room looks *much* better! emoticon

Blessed Be, Amanda

I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can,
And I love myself just the way I am."

Still low in the drawers, but I called a pool contractor to come out and look at the pool heater. If I don't hear from him tonight then I will recall him plus a few others tomorrow. He was going to try to come out today but would call me to let me know. As of yet, no call. It is almost 6 pm here.

I treated my sis to dim sum delivery, and some Chinese donuts. She ate the donuts first. They were very fresh and not sweet.

I took Larry for two walks today.

I made an appointment for Larry and Petey for the vet tomorrow.

I will be taking the car in for a check up soon. I need to locate a mechanic. Then we have to get the other car running. It has sat in a garage for five years. It needs new tires and a check up and new battery.

I had a telephone appt with my doc today. She just does meds but she is so sweet she gives me a pep talk too. She encouraged me to continue with my walks close to home, and build up from there. I feel like trying to get a service dog, or get one of my dogs certified to do it. My PTSD is so bad sometimes, but I feel better if a dog is with me.

I have plans to clean out the craft storage building. I am going to get rid of magazines that We have kept with patterns in them. The patterns will never be used and take up so much room,!!
The office Manager and I had lunch today. We do not get to do that very often anymore. She usually works in an other office!!

I started to dejunk books. We plan to give them to the local library.

I set up the new dvd player, and troubleshooted it when it failed to work initially. I went online to find out what to do.

I fixed my sister's computer when she couldn't access her aol page. I still don't know how I managed to do that. I swear my guardian angels were helping me with that one. Lol!

I called a dear friend and former work pal, and had a good laugh with her. She is such a dear, and we don't get a chance to talk much anymore. I miss the fun lunches and coffee breaks we had when I still worked there.

It made me feel a sense of accomplishment to do the above tasks. I am low in the drawers these days, and surprised when I accomplish something.
