A week at a time - first week of November

I decided to be really diligent with tracking my exercise (stretch 3 times, upper body strength 2 times and walk daily each week) and some other goals including brushing the dogs teeth daily LOL It is hard to purposefully create new habits or change well established old ones. This week I did pretty well on my exercising and the dog got more too as a result.

We have considered last month’s grocery shopping and meal outcomes and decided to change how we shop. Trying for each Tuesday for me to go to Vons and CVS in the morning. Then we finalize our list for Trader Joe’s and hubby goes there in the afternoon. We will see if this results in better veggie and fruit selections plus making sure we can find things given some empty shelves and low stock. First world problems. 

Just talked myself out of getting decorations for our Thanksgiving table. However, I wanted to get a small scented candle that wasn’t overwhelming and was about to order one online fingers crossed when I took some donations to the pet charity thrift shop. I walked around the store and there were some open ones that I could easily check the scent. $1 later I had exactly what I wanted and it was for a good cause.

Thankful:  for the teamwork Hubby and I have, some good laughs, friends who want to spend time with me, feeing really well this week, the luxury of choices, being able to get a suspect mole removed and biopsied

  2. I really need to take a page out of your book and keep track of the exercise I'm getting. Be more purposeful about it.

    1. Well I can't say I've succeeded in making exercise a habit yet but that is the goal after my foot surgery immobility. You have lots of classes to enjoy so I suspect you will get in a good routine.

  3. It really can change a person's life when they commit to regular exercise. Plus, you feel better afterward. You are also very committed to your dog if you're brushing her teeth daily. She's a lucky pup. Loved that you got a candle that you like for such a great price, while making a donation to boot. I'd say you've had a good week!

    1. We are very committed to this dog and she loves eating the toothpaste. Hard to make it a habit though.
