My friends and I have been doing annual goals since at least 2018. The idea is in 2018, you pick 18 goals. In 2019, you pick 19. And so on. Last year, I got a great start to the year. But then March came, the pandemic hit and things got a little … weird. Suffice… Continue reading 20 for 20: How did I do?
This year, I decided to lower the number of books on my Good Reads goal, since last year I didn’t meet my goal of 40+ books. Then the pandemic hit, I lost my job and lo and behold, I have plenty of time to catch up on my reading. Here are the books I’ve read… Continue reading Books I’m Loving Right Now
Let’s talk about this list. Eating Well put out this list of Trader Joe’s customers favorite products. And I must say I’m surprised. Let’s go through these one by one. I haven’t tried them all, but I’ve tried a number of them and only a few on my list overlaps with this list. 1. Everything but the… Continue reading How I rate these Trader Joe’s products
In just a month, I’ve lost 7.2 pounds on WW. So far, I’ve liked how I can adjust as needed depending on what I have going on that day, week or month. If I know I’m going to be splurging on New Years, I just save up some points for the week by eating a… Continue reading WW Success!
Reading one of the 12 nonfiction books of the year encouraged me to get the ball rolling on taking a photography class. “Stretch” explains why you should try new things as well as to take all of your different experiences to create new things. At the end of the book, it gives a few ideas… Continue reading One Goal Leads to Another
I’m down three points as of my third WW weigh-in this morning! I’m super excited about the results, since it hasn’t felt all that hard. Sure, I’ve had to say no to some great sweets at the office and sitting around the house, but I’ve also gotten to enjoy lots of bananas and fat-free Greek… Continue reading Weighed in at WW
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday relaxing. Here in Texas, it was overcast and cold, so it was a good day to stay in and cuddle and play cards. It’s always nice to have some calm time before the crazy of the year sets in. I wanted to get a head… Continue reading Happy 2020!
2019 is coming to end this week. It’s been a pretty good decade, which follows right along with my own personal decade from 30 to 40 years old. One of the things I think I’ve embraced this last decade is really trying to do the things I want to do instead of just talking about… Continue reading Two more days of 2020
My vitamins goal needs to be explained. I not only have bottles of pills sitting around my house, but at least two full boxes of vitamins from Careof. While I love the concept of Careof, I didn’t factor in that I am terrible at taking anything daily. I’m not a great routine person to begin… Continue reading Vitamin ABCs
Here are the 20 for 20 goals that didn’t make the cut this year: Read 32 books. I’m at 31 this year and probably could do this, but I like the 12 nonfiction better. I’ll still set a Goodreads goal. Sell $1,000 on Poshmark. I’ve sold about $300 so far, so this is quite the… Continue reading Didn’t cut it
