    DorothyMH thank you. That is kind of you to say. (Though I don't know that I'm always so patient when dealing with my mother.)

    I was cracking up reading your frustrations about prepping your workout time with mom. So. Very. Relatable. But, you are AMAZINGLY patient, as I have said before, Laura. There a special place for you in the cosmos for all you’re doing for your folks. A game or not, you rock it!

    July 17-23 Goals:

    writing: 10 hours per week
    artwork: 5 hours per week (on my own stuff-VI membership has ended now)
    French: 3 hours per week (Fluenz or other active use of my French skills--not just watching Netflix)
    health/fitness study: 2 hours per week

    workout: 5 hours per week MINIMUM (moderate to intense physical activity)
    yoga flow/dance: 3 hours per week (includes yoga fusion such as mixing yoga flows with strength drills. does not include restorative yoga)
    running: 20 km/week
    meditation: 60 minutes per week

    The only change from the previous week is that I am no longer counting art instruction time towards my 5 hours of artwork.

    My consistency goals for the week are remaining the same:

    GOBOT: minimum 5 days
    French study: 5 or 6 days

    I actually did 3 hours of yoga asana work this week! I cannot say it was easy. But it did feel good to get it done. As I have completed my YTT now, but still have a few weeks left on my subscription to Alo Moves, I am concentrating on doing a wide variety of different styles of classes with different teachers to give myself a broader view of what's out there and cast my net wide for inspiration for my own teaching.

    Total workout hours for the week were almost 8.5 (and this is actually moving hours. i.e.: not counting breaks between sets for DAREBEE workouts, or yoga shavasana, or all the time I spend waiting for my mother because she waits until I have hauled my gear into the living room, set everything up, and am sitting on my mat waiting for her before she bothers to gather her supplies together, change her footwear, use the toilet, or decide she needs to deal with laundry before we can start, or the time I spend waiting for her because she insists on answering the phone, answering the door, fretting about my father, and hunting insects in the middle of our workouts). It's a lot. But I do not want to skimp on my personal workouts anymore than I am already doing. And I just need to accept that the workouts with my mother take the time that they take. (Trying to convince her to stop wasting my time doesn't tend to go well for me.) Anyhow, I did manage to get everything done, even with my time-consuming eating and oral hygiene restrictions, and taking both dogs to the vets this week for their annuals. (Shelby got a perfect report card. Trudy just got treats and a physical exam, because there isn't any value in doing more at this point.) So I've proved that it's possible. I need to be on my A game to get everything done. But then: why shouldn't I be?

    Also: I know I said no more additions to my streak tracking. But I had to add "No Video Games" back in. I'm definitely not on my A game without that one! And it doesn't add to the burden of things I need to do every day since it's a streak of not doing something. (Using TTS to play games with sleep_twitch and 'rin does not count as breaking this streak. But solo gaming is not how I want to be spending my life. So it is gone.)

    Jam is not my thing anymore. Too sweet.

    My freezer is already quite full--mostly with frozen fruit. My father wanted me to plant raspberries and black currants and black berries. Then the birds planted the wild raspberries. Now we have more fruit than we can eat fresh, even when I'm allowed to eat it. I will eat raspberries every day if I can. But the black berries were for my father. He mostly only eats fruit with his breakfast, which my mother prepares for him. She is too lazy to take fruit out of the freezer and defrost it, however. So she keeps buying fresh berries from the grocery store and giving him those.

    Picking raspberries costs me time (and skin injuries from all of the thorns). Letting the birds eat the raspberries costs me nothing.

    DorothyMH thank you. After all of this expense and hassle, I really don't want the graft to fail. So yeah, I am trying to be good. Hopefully the end result will be a whole lot more years being able to eat normally with the tooth all of this is designed to save.
