2x week yoga: YES
1x week "other" exercise: YES (walking)
1x week Deck: YES (32 cards in 30 minutes)
That's the way. I aced my weekly exercise. I even managed to still do the Deck even though my schedule was off (I ended up doing it around 1 p.m. instead of 9 a.m.--and the world didn't end because I had to change my schedule--shocking!).
The Deck had it out for me this week. There were SO MANY walk out pushups. After I was all done, I counted up how many of each exercise I did and I did over 75 walk out pushups! They didn't win for the day, though. Squats won the day but those are easy compared to walk out push ups. I think I'm going to change up the squats and do sumo squats with a toe raise. I can use one weight (minimum 20 lbs) and sumos with a lift will give my calves a bit more work and be more challenging.
Tracking: no good this week. To be honest, since this week was when the month changed I had already mucked up the week (January part) so I just didn't try that hard for the February days.
F/V: 10 per work week: GOOD 5 per weekend day: GOOD. See, I really focused on the weekend f/v and used that as an excuse to not track either day. I didn't go super crazy (like hog down a whole pizza or anything) but I did indulge (I drank half a gallon of milk in two days--that's freaking nuts!).
No extra food on work days: Didn't really apply for this week since it was the month change over week (the whole "already messed it up so didn't try too hard" excuse).
Saturday: Clean living room top to bottom: DONE. Holy crap, there was so much dust. I got out the vacuum and swept off every one of the stuffed toys displayed in my living room (yes, I display the stuff I make). I even dusted the ceiling fan blades. Moved out the furniture and trapped all the dust bunnies. The only thing I didn't do was move out every single book on the bookshelf. I just nudged them back as I was dusting (there is no way in hell I'm moving every book--it's just not going to happen). OH, and my spouse helped. I was fully expecting him to cop out and he didn't. So big props to him for being a big boy and doing his chores, too. (he even tidied the kitchen a bit the next day--maybe he's having a change of heart now, too).
Sunday: bathroom cleaned, cat box fluffed, laundry done (well, in process still). The wife helped out here, too. When we went grocery shopping he got some shower spray so I wouldn't be scrubbing the shower all the time. I'm sure it was more to spare the caulking then to lighten my load (I scrub the hell out of that shower so that caulking was taking a beating).
Crafty Overhaul: still in progress. I did a lot last week but there is still a lot to do. Right now I'm at the stage where I'm finding little drips and drabbles as I clean my rooms. So when I take on the dining room, I'll gather up the rest of the crafty stuff there and re-locate it to the new room (putting it all away properly as I put it in the new room).
GOOD NEWS!! In the course of cleaning my living room I found the exercise wall chart that came with my Supreme 90 Day exercise DVDs. I wondered where that damn thing had gotten to and had convinced myself I'd accidentally thrown it out so I printed this crappy version that I used. It's nice to have found it again and it's now in the exercise room where it belongs.
No t.v. before 8 p.m. was a modest success. I did turn it on when I ate (my routine is usually get home, take care of cat and mail, exercise, eat, do projects until 8 p.m. then have t.v.) but then got back up after eating and didn't just veg out.
TONS of stuff sent out for swaps. Five different swaps went to the post office today (oh, the post office made me so mad--but that's a tale for another day). Sunday I got another dotee doll done (for my next shipment group going out 2/13). Tomorrow I'm off work (have to burn off a few vacation days) so I'm going to dotee like a mad woman and get more swaps ready to send.
Progress on my painting (that happens every Wednesday no matter what)
I need to get back to work on Cylindra (I gathered her up and added her to my WIP/UFO area in my crafty room).
Grateful Journal: Going well. I did play catch up on Sunday (for Saturday and Sunday) but I'm ok with that. This weekend was busy and that's going to happen some times.
Grade for the week: B. The lack of tracking is still what's bringing me down. I probably should grade lower because of it but I really got a lot of hard/labor intensive chores done this weekend which brought up the grade. Weekend F/V helped too.
Here's to this next week being even better.
