    TopNotch Thank you for the suggestion!

      Okay, so it’s been a little while. I’m going to be starting over. I’m not sure when because I have some searching to do. But I do know I’ll be resetting my consecutive days of exercise and my “game”. It’s just not working for me right now. Meaning, I still want to keep my 80% goal and my game, but where I’m at in regards to my strength/stamina isn’t great. I need to figure out a better way to ease back in to exercising because even the little I was doing took a lot out of me. I’m also not happy with the rewards I picked, and I will be hunting up some ideas later (for non-food and no cost rewards). So I’m probably going to be looking for some nice stretch challenges and just try building on that. I want some structure. I just need a little bit of wiggle room.

      And mentally, the last two days (or late afternoons/nights), my depression has been acting up. Complete with irritability. Add family issues into the mix and it’s been fun. And if I’m being honest, it probably won’t get much better anytime soon. We’re fine*, things are going okay, but it’s just been an eventful year. You know. Life.

      *At least, the people in my house are. There are some family members who are going through some rough patches at the moment that I might elaborate on later, because it might end up affecting my mental health, too.

      On a lighter note, I have either finished or nearly finished most of my crafting projects. Now I can try watercolor and punch needling soon. Also, there’s a “ghost” in my room . I got a mirror a while back that lights up if you touch it in a certain spot. I joked when I first got it that if it lights up on its own, I’ve got a ghost. It happened twice. I didn’t see any cats around it when it happened. As long as the ghost is kind, I’m fine .

      Well, off to add to my Duolingo streak, get some more reading done, and start putting a plan in place. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

                      Plans are great. They allow you really to concentrate on immediate and longterm goals, to work out where you want to be and how best you can get there. I make a million plans a year. I follow them for a bit but then realise that it's not working for me the way I wanted. But what it has done is show me what I do or don't want to do - which helps me formulate the next plan. Let your plan be a guide. Don't feel that you have to follow it if it doesn't work. Best not to be too prescriptive. Most important of all, create a plan that is FUN! Little achievements and a bit of fun might help with your depression. I (vaguely) recall a cartoon I saw years ago. It said something like: Life is a good thing; it's the people in it that makes it difficult.
                      Strength to you.

                              TopNotch I definitely don’t want anything too strict but I’d like some structure in regards to exercising, otherwise, I’m less likely to do it. The problem at the moment is the fact that I struggle with little workouts. It doesn’t happen all the time, but there’s some days workouts just about knock me out, even when it is short and simple. I never know when it’s going to hit me. So I thought that I’d try with something pretty basic, like stretching (its definitely needed) and then gradually add on exercises and see where that gets me. I figured stretching was something I could manage every day, and then if I needed to adjust the other stuff I could.

                              That is an amazing quote and oh, so true!

                                Update: my aunt by marriage (though she and my uncle haven’t been together since before I was born) is not doing well. She, my uncle, and their kids live a few states away. They’re not hopeful about her situation, but we are trying to remain hopeful. We’re not sure yet if a trip is going to need to be made. We’re waiting to see what’s going to happen. She is currently in hospice, which isn’t good, and she is currently in a coma. My mom doesn’t really want to make a trip down there while she’s in that position. Part of it is likely because she’d been with my aunt while her husband passed a few years back and she doesn’t really want to repeat that, and part of it is maybe that she doesn’t want to intrude on her nephews’ time with their mom. We’ve told them if there’s anything we could do to help, we’d do it, but we are not sure what is going to happen at the moment.

                                Because of this and because of Thanksgiving coming up soon, I’ve decided not to start anything until after Thanksgiving. I have a stretching challenge picked out, and I’m still working on revising my game.

                                In the meantime, I’ve been catching up on my reading and clearing my currently reading shelf on Goodreads. It’s been at 12-14 books for a while, and it feels great to see that number diminish! Why did I have that many books in that shelf? I got way too overzealous on Serial Reader two years ago and added just about every Christmas story they had on there. Don’t ask me why. I also had other random books just sitting on that shelf.

                                It’s apparently already been two weeks since I started You Know Where to Find Me, and I’ve only made it to page 60. I’m going to finish this one. It’s been on my to-read shelf for so long, I’d been disappointed in myself if it never moved. This is just very likely not going to be one of my favorites. Now, if given a choice between reading this book and re-reading that god awful second book in the Psycho Trilogy, it will definitely be this one! I’m not reading that book ever again. All those words to say that this is not one of my favorite books .

                                And I have reached a 365 (plus change) streak on Duolingo!
