My WUB (weekly update blog) Sat. MARCH 2nd

1.Working toward 500 Fitness Minutes goal for the month of March. 1 point emoticon

2. "Daily, base 2 of 3 meals on veggies." 3 points emoticon
Breakfasts were blended salads with 1 fruit. Lots of spinach this week.

3. " No more than one cup of coffee per day. emoticon And drink minimum of 8 glasses of water and/or green tea per day." 3 points... emoticon Very hard for me to stop coffee!!! My fibro pain has been less. that is the pay off.

4. "Limit SP time to 2 hours. ... emoticon... so "Me Time" is used for a hobby or seeing a friend or something active like taking a walk." 2.5 points emoticon and emoticon
well I limited SP but the fun stuff will have to wait.

5. Water aerobics at least 3 times per week---- 1 points! emoticon
All week I had to focus on finances.This is my biggest challenge at tax time!Yuk!

6. Actually write the Weekly Update Blogs on these goals to keep me focused. 3 points! emoticon emoticon doing this weekly is harder than it looks! But it has helped me a great deal.
I almost skipped writing the WUB this week. My desk is about 50%-60% cleaned off. That is after everyday working on it daily for a week! Yes, I had papers piled up to my eyeballs!Lots of bills to straighten out. Fibro fog limits my progress here.

Also, DH is getting physically harder to care for.
I have to clean his BMs nightly now. So my evenings are not too pleasant.
A PCA (personal care aide) does this each morning.

He is still fun and chatty and we have nice times together. In fact his brain is a bit improved. he took a phone call saying he has an appt. Mon. at 10:00 am. He can't remember where? emoticon He refused to get the phone for several years because he thought he'd be confused. Now he is answering it and writing the messages for me. Also, he wrote the message very clearly and was very proud of that. Nearly like his engineering printing training. So I cannot even be mad at him. He worked very hard at this. He in fact did give me one message correctly today. emoticon

    Thanks for sharing your blog, you are doing amazingly well! I agree with the other posters -- you need to keep some time and energy for your OWN needs. No one can survive without rest and healthy habits, if they are caring for a loved one! I know that is hard to achieve. emoticon

    Have you considered having someone do your taxes for you? Sure, it will cost something, but the time, effort, energy, etc you save may well be worth it. I've always done my taxes and/or had someone else help me, but this year I'm pretty sure I'll have to pay someone to do it for me because my unique circumstances this year will probably leave me an absolute mess for taxes.
