100 days of All The Things: 10% [Mar. 10th, 2014|03:39 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
Well, I promised not to talk about this project all the time, but I am planning to report in every 10%.

Gym: So far, I’m 10 for 10 on getting to the gym, which was the one about which I was most concerned. But it was also my highest priority. I am focusing a lot on swimming because it was my weakest leg in last summer’s triathlons. I am still slow, but I’m getting in the water. As we move into outdoor exercise weather and I start biking and running outside, I will still be going to the gym for strength training on those outdoor days.

Cooking: I’ve cooked, but not every day. I was out of town this weekend and missed Friday-Sunday.

Reading: I’ve read every day.

Practicing Italian: About 50% successful in getting this done.

Journaling: I missed Saturday because I was completely away from the computer, and yesterday because I was just plain tired. So I’m writing two entries today to make up for the missed day.

Crafting: Not. One. Darned. Day. There are only so many balls I can keep in the air. This ball has fallen to the ground and rolled under a table.

In all, I’m pretty happy. Not perfect, but I’m getting a lot more done. We’ll see how the next 10 days go!

Excellent! Feels great, doesn't it? I can't say I've been as faithful to my exercise. Buuuuut, I made new curtains for the family room. Been putting that off for about two years, so yaaay! We only went out to dinner once last week, so that, too, is a vast improvement. Baby steps.

Today I lost my balance trying to start the lawn mower and took a spill in the cement driveway. Skinned my elbow and wrenched my neck and shoulder a bit. I expect to have muscles tomorrow I didn't know existed. Might not walk tonight. But there's always tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow.

Soldier on! Thanks for the update.

I'm very pleased for you! Perhaps as you go along, you'll be able to work in the crafting. And if not, that just means you're literally doing all you can--which is pretty impressive.

I've done enough crafting for the last week to cover both of us. My muse woke up loudly & angrily last few days.
