Not quite as I planned

I updated yesterday's post by crossing off things I completed on my to-do list. I really love having a to-do list and I love crossing things off of it. The downside is, I hate having things left over on it. And yesterday I did have somethings leftover. Not many, but a few. And unfortunately my no nap plan failed. I ended up taking a really short nap, like 10 minutes. The majority of my to-do list got completed so I should be happy and consider it a huge success. That's what I'm going to focus on.

Today's to-do list is a little simplier:

Track food
Track food
Walk dogs
Track food

That's it. Of course that schoolwork is going to take a whole lot of time, but I've got to get it done. So, let's see how today goes.

Update: I did not track my food today. Hubby made breakfast before I even realized it so I lost track of the food rather quickly. In my defense, I did not eat that much. I was never full, only satisfied. When I got hungry I had some fruit. So I'm still taking it as a win. I got the schoolwork done, which did not take as long as I thought it would. Laundry, check. Walk dogs, check. I meant to add some mobility in there too. I need to start doing it at night for my knee, but that's for another post. The really big news is that I tackled a task that I have been putting off for a long, long time. It was one of those things that I didn't want to do and it kept getting larger and larger in my mind and it was causing me some stress. Today I did it. It's not over, but I have taken the first step and that is huge. HUGE. I'm so relieved. So that kind of makes up for everything else. I've been wanting to do this for months and months and just kept avoiding it. That, of course, made it bigger and bigger and more stressful. If I had just done it at the time I would have not had this. But whatever, the important thing is I did it and now I can move on with my life. So happy. Okay, just wanted to post this little update so I don't forget. Off to walk to the dogs.
