I took a short emoticon this morning and then went to the East building and rode the emoticon for a few minutes. I am limited to how long I can exercise without triggering the pain so I made it short but I did it! emoticon
I washed the dishes and need to vacuum as we have the bug man tomorrow.

Found my printout and apparently I stopped on step 4 of 5 - right BEFORE submitting my order!! Dag-nab-it!! So ordered FOR REAL and will hope they get here soon... emoticon Guess there's a first time for everything, right?!?!

Did 2 loads of laundry and went by the gym to cancel my membership. She was nice about it when I explained it was due to car payments on top of a pay cut. But I haven't received the confirmation email I should have gotten this afternoon. Hopefully I'll get it tomorrow.

Dori's place is cleaned and swept along with the kitchen. The dishes are put in the sink to be washed tonight. I find it is better if I do them at night so I can do them all as I have so few.
I have taken my walk and am hoping to do a chair dancing dvd soon.

I picked up some emoticon today to finish off the month. Dori's place is cleaned and I rearranged books in the apartment book shelves. I plan to clean a bookshelf or two if the Fibro holds off after a busy day.

I had a good nights sleep last night. I was able to go on the bus and do some more errands. I caught up some on my Goodreads and made it to the library to turn in some books. I picked up quarters at the bank to do laundry this weekend. I am having my shakes at least one meal a day and hope to increase to two times a day. They keep my tummy happier than solid food.
Time to sort the laundry and clean Dori's Place. emoticon

After a week of being out of pocket for cleaning I finally caught up on most of my dishes. I took the bus to get a few groceries I needed and I also shredded a few papers. Tomorrow I hope that I feel more like cleaning and sprucing the castle a bit.

Just cleaned Dora's litter box, and she's in there using it right after! I got veggies chopped for healthy snacks this week, and cooked up some broth with veggie and ham trimmings, plus leftover seasoning (especially salt) from dry soup packets.

Did a couple little overdue chores tonight: put clean laundry from this weekend away, and sorted my pm supplements.

Cleaned the litter box. Really want to be more regular with that! Ran 2 errands to Safeway and the library after work. Then I relaxed and read before starting dinner, but then most of my evening is gone! But I did get a little done--which is always better than nothing!

Cleaning out the freezer today. I have several frozen Meals on Wheels dinners. I am going to separate the frozen fruits and put them in containers for easier use. I am going to use what vegetables I can eat and make a nice veggie soup and cook up some ground sirloin that needs to be used and add it to the soup. Win! Win!

Made the bed and cleaned th kitchen and Dori's space. I took a walk and walked 15 continuous minutes! emoticon It is 81 degrees but enough of a breeze to be comfortable. I walked entirely around the block without stopping!

The kitchen is cleaned and I scrubbed the faucet to get the hot water lime off. The dishes are washed, cabinets wiped down and the sinks shined. Dor'is area is cleaned and the laundry is in the dryer. I took one short walk and need to do another as soon as the laundry is put away.

I went to the library after work. And last night I cooked up veggie trimmings for stock. I strained and put it into a big glass jar to use in soups and sauces. Healthy and economical!

I am doing the walk challenge and we were to increase to 20 minutes this week. I made it to 15 minutes. I hope that it does not push my Fibro even further. I did feel some better for a while.
I am preparing ground beef with peppers, chopped green olives and salsa and topped with cheese. I am trying to increase my protein.
Wishing everyone a great evening.

I did a little ST the last couple days in addition to my walking. Today I ran an errand after work (I love Daylight Savings Time, cuz it's not dark when I get off work)! I got several items at Target, and looked in the Dollar Store, but my favorite collection of rubber spatulas including (including minis) wasn't to be found. Hope they haven't discontinued.

Last night got the application done & submitted so it wasn't hanging over me.

This morning got ready for the day's outing early, had time to research hotels for brother & bus riding into Seattle for me.

Finally got my supplements prepped for the next week.

I have some books sitting around again. A friend sent some to me by my helper who helped my friend clear out her cabinets. I am gradually finding homes for them. There is another book sale on the 27 but I am thinking I may skip it.
I washed linen today including my comforter. I can feel a flare of fatigue coming on so I am glad that all is in order.
Tomorrow we are expecting snow again so I will just stay inside and read and cuddle with Dori.

Thank you Leslie. I have a cat in mind from the shelter and hope to visit again to see if it has a good personality for me.

We took Keeper to the vet this morning and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 11:00. I took a nap because he and I did not sleep well last night.
I cleared out his box and toys and towels and blankets.
I swept and mopped the kitchen and took the trash out. I did 2 loads of laundry and vacuumed.
Wishing you all a good night. emoticon

Got gas and groceries (Costco--where I also got ink cartridges for my printer, Safeway & TJs), dropped off donations, returned library books and picked up DVD on hold. Prepped supplements. Wrote a card to a friend, sent a sympathy email to a cousin. Oh, and planned my outing, like I described in the Success thread.

Pictures are hung and the apartment really looks cozy. I am loving the small area and how easy it is to navigate.
I have completed one mini challenge on Goodreads and starting another. I have 4 going at once.
I have a few more things to finish and then my home will be complete. I have some items I want to shop for in the next few months so it will keep motivated to keep things neat and tidy.

Flurry of calls in late afternoon between dentist offices, even went by the old one after work to be sure they got the signed release for records, and would email them to the new office. I don't want to have to reschedule!

I have been overwhelmed the past few days. Sis and I are ill. Today, as I was fixing breakfast, I multitasked and straightened the whole kitchen laundry area...folded clothes, cleaned counters, cleaned dishes. I feel better now. We had poached eggs, toast, and ham...yum!

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

So happy to hear about all the positives, Renita and Nola! (Even if it takes me a few days to reply, sometimes! emoticon )

Cleaned the litter box early this evening--that seems to help. And I did some abs exercises while I was down on the floor after playing with Dora. Finding the best time to do some of these activities or routines can help me be more consistent.

My friend who came to help me is taking home several boxes home with her so that will leave another corner cleaned. I am going to leave more unpacking to tomorrow and concentrate on taking trash out and catching up on laundry.
I am liking the way the apartment is setting up.

Nola emoticon with the others please take care of yourself. Sometimes as women we forget to do this. Sorry that they are charging you to clean the carpets. Some people!

Amanda that is great that you cleaned the emoticon litter box. I am so thankful that my kitty goes outside. I am especially glad to read that you are going to get a massage. You need to take care of yourself. emoticon

I myself made a healthy dinner that everyone in my family enjoyed. My daughter and I bundled up my grandson and we went walking (2 miles) to the fruit stand to buy produce yesterday. Oh and I received an email that my Spark tracker is was sent out this morning. I can't wait to receive it because I feel that it will hold me more accountable.

I hope everyone has a emoticon Thursday. Stay positive my friends.

I got the litter box cleaned at last--missed a day or two. And I got a massage therapist's contact info and sent an email asking about making an appointment for a massage--I think I really need one, and can afford it now.

I'm so glad you are away from those toxic people! And emoticon on all the unpacking!

I got my ST done as soon as I finished playing with Dora after coming home today. While I was still on the floor, I just rolled over and did my abs routine!

As I was wiping off my kitchen OOs tonight, I realized I'm developing a real sense of "Oh no I'm not going to let that sit there, I'm clearing off this OO right now!" I'm getting a real sense of satisfaction, which will help me maintain--because I really like the results!

Went to the apartment for the final walk through today. The apartment was perfectly clean including washing the baseboards and she is charging me for cleaning the carpet for the next tenant. It is required by law that they do this but are putting it on me because there was nothing else to charge me for.
I only have 12 more boxes to unpack except for books which fill an entire closet,
