Focus Update

FOCUS has been kicking my butt, quite honestly. 
I've been feeling pretty scattered... (my last post being a prime example).  But let's face it, things are in transition and I'm incorporating new things and trying out ideas and activities and until I get some time and experience with these things, it's going to feel like I'm scattered, because I am.  Not to mention that things are not quite normal round these parts, I am trying to jam workouts into my very full life that is a bit more hectic because Dennis just had major surgery,  Kaylee has been swamped with homework and if it weren't for Mom Bea helping Dennis out during the day... my ability to get the necessary things done wouldn't have been possible. Thanks Mom Bea!
Considering though, it's all going pretty well, even if it feels like I'm not "in the groove", so to speak.  There are plenty of people balancing much more than I am right now, so I know it's "do-able".  It's just going to take me some time before I feel like I'm good at it. 

I think getting a little more clear on happenings in the areas of focus and what I've got going will help me going forward.  This is where things currently stand and reflect what I currently want to work on, I can take stuff off, add, but I think keeping it organized somewhere will help as well. 
FOOD:  Change Your Mind, Change Your Body (an audiobook); Meal Planning with Bountiful Basket bootie;  Logging Food eaten; Maintain right calories in to maintain weight.
FITNESS:  I have a schedule! (scheduled days not scheduled times, times are flexible)  MWF - Couch to 5k, and TTh - Yoga / Stretching.  Walking at lunch 3x a week, minimum.  7500 steps / day.  And eventually, back to the Whittle My Middle challenge.  Get a new Bod Pod (%Body Fat / Lean Mass composition) measurement shortly. 
FINANCE: We have a "Budget on Paper!"  Now to make sure we're following it and get it tweaked.  Get back to cash!  Prioritize wish list.

ORGANIZATION/ ORDER:  BigOven (meal planning, recipe software) 2: De-Clutter and Simplify!!  I've been picking an area or room and working on it with real attention to de-clutter and organize the space, meanwhile building a pile of things to Garage Sale. 3: Organize Now! A week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life... (a book)
 There!  I feel better already!
