Hey, you guys!
I got the cold that my DH had and can't seem to shake it entirely. No fever so we think it was just a cold, but we self-isolated just to be safe. As the primary caregiver for my mom, I had no way to quarantine completely, but we've been doing the best we can....

I'm sorry that your mom is fading, PT. It's so hard to watch. We'll take vicarious pleasure in the continued good health of Eliza's mom. I'm glad you were able to see her!

Hard times for the country so you stay strong!
Hugs, Mary

Mary,
How long were you sick and what have you been through lately? I've been out of touch with any group contact as my mother's health has continued to be draining her life.

To think that you got 20 minutes out of a gorgeous day means you've struggled for awhile.

My walking has been high priority for me with my mom's continuing health liabilities and care. Fortunately for me that I can push my body and breath deeply in this weather to calm my innards down.

I hope to be more supportive through our team contact for all our sakes.

emoticon Peace out,
Dale

Going to dog groomer and walking again late afternoon with 9 yr old Mika.

Had salad dinner last night at Jason's Deli with no meats or dressings.

Breakfast was a HB egg, and
Slice toasted whole wheat with sharp cheddar melt and sliced tomato.
chunk of walnut/date loaf.
a lot of 50/50 caf/decaf coffee black

I am delayed walking so I could get my mother out to just walk around the block. So far walking has been ok this week and I'll head out now for my own walk. If rain isn't a bother I can keep it up.

Later Fine Tuners!

emoticon Ok, so here is where I wrote my post; it was from last Monday. ALL that necessary mileage walking after little sleep from hospitalizing Mom last Sunday. I am so grateful the weather worked out for me to just keep going that day.

In contrast, Mom wanted to go outside for a little walk herself yesterday, so we prioritized her. I never got my own steps up to even my 50% number but I am not always able to be only about me. I miss many gorgeous weather days because her hospitalizations always seem to need those too. Well, pf course she's worth it.

Let's see if I can make goals today. Walk over 10,000 steps. Pay bills. And read. Plus:
Food selection today must be most mindful. emoticon VERY emoticon

emoticon Eliza! I did it!! I took Mary's example of one very good personal day to clear up my environment and did an excellent job of it!!!

I single handedly moved all my furniture around in my living room and created a new floor plan that I love. I did other stuff as well in my bedroom.

There's miles to go before I sleep but for one day I really made a difference.

Playing music instead of watching tv from my first cup of coffee on throughout the day did it. I've been sleeping poorly and waking in the middle of the night often for hours, and this is my spirit saying MOVE IT.

Sure weather now will dip into winter but what great time I had with walking a lot last week.

Fine Tuning is a multi level proposition. emoticon

I miss you two. I've been uneven emotionally to say the least! And reading your two last posts have brought me back to wanting a day of grounding and refreshed spirit as well.

Tensions and chaos are too prevalent here so may I have a day like Mary and a month like Liza. Slow inhale. Life. It can't all be neat and easy. Old broads know this!

Inhale again....

Woo hoo! I made some progress at work, and I also got some major re-organizing done. My home office looks much, much better, and that's going to help my productivity and make me happier too. To top it off, I got myself to the gym at the end of the day. I'm glad I got to do that. All in all, a good day, especially when I consider how uninspired I was when it started.

Good for you, Eliza. No need for extremes like "not eating." Slow and steady for the long haul is much better.

I'm taking a day "off" today. I splurged on some fancy soap and new lotion. I even got a lavender spray for my pillow, for heaven's sake! And I'm enjoying the little indulgence...

Okay, definitely not lazy then. Procrastinators---and I know something about it cuz I've been one too---are quite frequently high achievers, who procrastinate because they can never get their projects to be good enough to meet their own unrealistic standards. Sound familiar? It did to me! But I read an article recently advising procrastinators to try to accept those uncomfortable feelings of "poor" quality temporarily as a momentary unpleasant sensation that will fade. That made sense to me and I've been trying it with some success.

Funny how I identify as lazy because I'm a procrastinator. Maybe most everyone except high achievement Type A folk are as well. I didn't write a book or make my life work expand as far as I dreamed or...; This is what the new thread is supposed to include. Not here on motivation FINE TUNING.

Eliza,
Thanks.

Mary,
Thanks.

For being here. I have not walked but one day this past week and plan to make up for it tomorrow. Goodnight

Hey, PT. Glad to see you here. Not convinced that you are lazy though.... You've always been a great leader here!

I'm happy that I was able to make it to the gym today, and I shoveled snow yesterday so that's a WIN-WIN for the weekend!

Stay strong!

Hi Fine Tuners,
Now that it is winter I hope to have more time I prioritize for sharing on Sparks. I added a new thread topic to our general chat choices for the team.
I wasn't convinced that I might be the only one who wants reflective thought sharing besides behavior accountability. If no one is interested I'll take down that thread.

I do know people have a gazillion choices in 2020 to comb through and we often are not looking for others but instead are lazy like ME and just hope to attract what's desired from the convenience of exactly where I am used to hanging out.

Right there could be my problem!
Just Laugh at That

Doing me as best I can...

Hello, dear Fine Tuners!
I'm proud of myself today because I got some work done, a couple errands, and then, finally, made it to the gym for a quick walk-and-jog on the treadmill. Woo hoo!

Afternoon to ya.
I must post tomorrow as I've run out of time
And yet I'm tempted to forego the walk to my mtg just to say hello here.. Real windy but sun isn't quite gone.

Will talk about my week later. Must be present for the next right thing.

Well, I must say that today I first went to our general chat thread to post to our team, prior to this motivation thread. Do read me there (...unless you want a post in chat to just be copy and pasted here for your convenience). However, to see it in both places might irritate one of you.... so what's your preference, if any?

Ok socks! emoticon Outa this chair and out that door

So sorry Mary to just wake up to the fact that you broke your arm in
September. I must have fallen into a hole of personal life self absorption. I know I was trying hard to simply get in all that walking once again and rarely at a computer.

Now my nails are finally cut the proper length for the keyboard typing and my son replaced my dead computer with a refurbished one.

Eliza, I wish you the gift as well. I haven't had all this bestowed upon me for the last ten years, since my mother got me into the condo unit under hers and I stopped being a renter. I wanted my life to bring more good and joy to fruition and at 71 appreciate greatly my experiences.

It's hard to keep spirits up often but by concentrating on what I CAN DO that is constructive I have improved my energy acceptance of good from outside me. That may make a little sense to you or not. I keep plugging away at optimism and grace that is possible from within me.

Motivation and Encouragement means to me that I do ALL I can which is more than a walk or a sensible healthy meal. PEACE MY FRIENDS!!!!

The end of December has us in a scurry to finish out this old year.

I'm back with Mom for another of her current 24+ hours up at Johns Hopkins Hospital in a few days. She has now also been dx with pancreatic cancer...

My scale is fluctuating rapidly lately as I have dropped all walking out due to weather and circumstances this month. Though it is raw and unpleasant out I will force a 50% walk when finished typing here.

The new Fridge is Fabulous, and so is the Bosch dishwasher that has also arrived. The new stove delivery however keeps getting delayed which only matters if the weather stinks by then. What! I can't afford all new appliances. My SON decided to gift me at Thanksgiving and woweee wow wow amazing.

No parties for me this year in order to be at the ready here Mom. I can do this.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to ALL,
