Day 26- Compliant... cleaning day
Thursday is deep clean day for me in my apartment. I hate things like scrubbing toilets, but they have to be done, so I set aside Thursdays to do them. I figure if I just focus and do all the things I dislike all at once then they are done and... Read more
Day 25- Compliant... medical stuff
On track with food. Developing different habits takes time. Undoing bad habits I have let creep in takes even longer I think.

Day 22- Compliant

Day 18- Compliant... insomnia
I didn't sleep last night. I tried, but I was watching the clock and the time just ticked by until it 4am, and I gave up and got up and read until 7:30 when I woke Cooper up to go out to my parent's house for our morning visit. I am hoping to ... Read more

Day 13- neurologist appointment
Saw the neurologist today. Dad and I dropped mom off at the big grocery store near the doctor's office, then came back for her after I was done. The doctor requests that you arrive 20 minutes early for your appointment, and I try to do that, b... Read more
Day 12- compliant... letting things go
I am trying not to dwell on things I have no control over. Yes, I can be proactive. But I can also refuse to allow the negative to take over my thoughts. Today I just embraced my routine, and focused on cleaning my apartment, walking my dog, ... Read more
Day 11- Compliant... a quiet day
