Little Things


Week of September 11-17, 2017.

This week I:
~fell more deeply in love with my husband as we celebrated our anniversary.
~had surgery.
~moved to a new house.

3 Random Things:
~I am excited about the new year coming  up.
~I hope I get the same physical therapists as last time.
~There is a nice park near our new house.

A motivational quote:
"You don't have to have it all figured out to move forward... just take the next step."

The best part of this week:
Finding a new house. Even though it's temporary,  we will be here a year and that gives us more time to look for what we want to buy.

This week's struggle:
Anxiety about my surgery. But it turned out ok. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Goal Review:
1. 18,000 steps. ☆done, 31,229 !!!
2. 192 oz water. *only 170 oz
3. Housework done by Wednesday.  ☆done.
4. Work on cross stitch. ☆done.

Goals for next week (Sept 18-24):
1. Unpack and settle in at new house.
2. Physical therapy.
3. Walk 15 miles.
4. Get 6k steps on at least 5 days.
5. Continue work on cross stitch.

I've lost weight, but again this week is showing that most days I don't eat enough. At bare minimum, it's too inconsistent.

And as always, I don't drink enough. It's not just water,  I'm not drinking anything.  I have a cup of coffe in the morning  (sometimes I only drink half). Then I drink a slimfast shake for breakfast. After that, the totals above are my only liquids.
