Saturday to-do list

Image
I can feel that if I do not plan accordingly today will be a very lazy day. The first week of school took it out of me and I slept for 9 hours and 25 minutes. When Hubby left for work this morning, I actually thought I would get up. Then I fell back to sleep for another hour. I woke too late to make the first Crossfit class so that means I'm going at 9 am. I can already feel that I will want to be lazy today so I need to create a to-do list to help me get at least a few things done. So, here goes:

1. Crossfit
2. Breakfast/Shower
3. Read and annotate at least 4 articles
4. Work on outline for prospectus
5. Enter grades
6. Find theoretical framework for prospectus
7. Walk dogs


That should be a good day. Not too taxing. There will be times for naps in there. Okay. I'll be back later or tomorrow to outline exactly what next week will look like. I have some plans for it.

Time for a check in

I have been back at school a week now and trying very hard to stick to my plan. Let's see how this week went.

Fitness: Goal was to Crossfit 4x and walk dogs 4x. I went to Crossfit Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and Friday. I walked the dogs. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. So success with Crossfit, the dogs I'm still working on.

Food: I prepped my food on Sunday and took it every day this week. I did eat spaghetti on Monday, cornbread on Monday, and bratwurst on Thursday. But overall I would say this week was a success in the food category.

Work: Mostly successful. I did have some little things to do a couple of nights, but nothing serious.

School: This was not great. I did work on my prospectus once, and I did do some discussions, but that was it. Have to make up for that this weekend.

Finances: This was added later and I have kept on top of the finances, though not much happened this week.

I think, considering that I'm just getting things rolling, it was a good week. …

It's been a couple of days and things are going well. I started this at 204.4 and yesterday I was at 200.8. Thank God it's starting to come down, I was freaking. But I cannot relax. I cannot relax even a little until I am below 190 lbs. Then I can relax just a little, but not too much. I have joined 2 diet bets and both of them are to lose 4% of my weight by January 31. I have to get down to 196.4. Now at least I am confident I will make it.

Today was the first day back to school. What a long day. But it was good. I will adjust.

That's about it. I just wanted to pop in and keep things updated. Off to do some school work.

It all starts now.....

I've been looking at tomorrow as the real, true beginning. I've been on break and getting things together these past couple of days but tomorrow it's back to work and back to routine. So while tomorrow is the real start, I've been doing well these last couple of days. I have had zero sweets. Zero. I have had no bread. I've been to Crossfit every day except Friday. I'm very proud of myself. I have also kept my eating under control. I did not track today but I did not eat a whole lot either. Off to a great start.

Tomorrow they are serving us lunch and it could be anything. I'm going to eat a good breakfast and just make the best choices I can. I'm not going to beat myself up if I make a mistake, but I'm going to do the best I can. I think I'll be fine.

I'm in 2 diet bets this month. The first one started today and is for 28 days. There are only 3 people in it, but I could still win $90. The other one starts tomorrow and the pot is $245,000.…
