    @littleblackskirt sending you condolences. It’s very hard loosing a percent even when it’s expected. I hope your back soon recovers. Sending you hugs 🐝

    I miss y’all a bunch, though I doubt you notice I’ve been gone. It’s nice seeing some new people enter the mic. Take care y’all! Much love.

    Of course you are missed. But we also understand that RL can take so much energy that it leaves us little for ourselves. Hope all is well and you will return soon.

      @littleblackskirt So sorry about your dad. It’s never easy to deal with, especially when you have to do all the formalities. Hugs and prayers for you and your family. And then to have your back go out. Nightmare city! Hope the pain eases and you recover soon.

      Good to see some new people posting.

      Hang in there, peeps. We have had a difficult year so far, but we are strong and resourceful. Find some simple thing that makes your heart sing and do that! Go out side and feel the sun (or the rain) on your face,

      The combination of winter approaching on top of Covid was playing on my mind, so I have set up my art studio again and am trying some abstract art therapy. I’m kicking it off with a five day programme from Art2Life. Day 1 was yesterday, and I found it very stimulating.

      Gratitude Journal

      @TiffanyPe17 - I am always grateful to live in Canada. I cannot believe you have to go back to work so soon. When my girls were born we were given 3 months paid time off by the government. Now we have 1 year paid by the government and 18 months job guaranteed.

      @pridesabtch - It's nice to see you post. I hope you continue popping in.

      @cschmitz110515 - Glad to read that your husband's work is approving OT and hiring someone else. Job stress is so hard to deal with as a lot of times you have no control over what is happening except to change jobs which is much easier said than done. We have snow, I will post a picture in a little bit. It has snowed Friday and again yesterday now.

      @TerriRichardson112 - Thanks for sharing the post about taking care of me. I have saved it and plan on printing it out. I too, am concerned about Winter and Covid. I love your painting.

      I have a busy day ahead of me today, some competing deadlines at work that need to be met. My DH has not been feeling well again and he has a doctor's appointment at 11. I am anxious to see what they say. He has been unwell since last Saturday and his solution right now is to not eat. That won't work for long.

      @TerriRichardson112 Thanks for the welcome! And you are an amazing artist :) And thanks for the positivity during these dark times.

      JFT 10/19

      - Go to Yoga and the gym :)
      - Drink at least 8 cups of water :)
      - Spend 3 hours working remotely >:)
      - Log all food on MFP :)
      - Go for a walk on the trail >:)
      - Start a nighttime routine including less screen time. >:)

      JFT 10/20

      - Go to the gym (can't go to Yoga today because I have a morning meeting)
      - Track all meals
      - Complete calendar project
      - Go for an outdoor walk
      - Attend zoom call and be social

      I have a tendency to be very anti-social right now. Quarantine isn't helping at all. Zoom work calls are a blessing. So, I'm trying to get more involved with my children's school groups, interest area groups, small church groups, etc.

      Wishing everyone a great Tuesday!
      Sam

        @Snowflake1968 a year paid time off sounds amazing! I wish we had that opportunity. I was off six weeks and it just went by so fast. I love what I do so I’m not dreading it, but I know my life is about to be super busy with working full time and rebuilding my business.
        That being said, just for today:

        •Eat 3 meals ❌ Just snacked and didn’t track
        •walk ✅
        •contact past clients✅
        •Training videos ✅
