    Good morning everyone! I love seeing your smiling faces when I read through your posts each day. I'm inspired by your commitment to your own journeys, as well as by your openness, generosity, and commitment to the group.

    Didn't get everything done yesterday and stayed up way too late again. I really need to get my sleep schedule worked out. Visiting my mom later today, so I'm keeping my list short so I can work in a short walk before I head down to see her.

    Goals for Wednesday, January 22, 2020
    • Complete food log and maintain a calorie deficit - √
    • Walk for 30+ minutes at the indoor farmers’ market - √ - Counting this a win although it turns out the farmers’ market doesn’t reopen until next week. Walked at the mall instead. Less interesting, but I still have plenty of veggies from my weekend shop.
    • Set up/confirm Writing Center and Library orientations – 50% - Writing Center done but still need to set up the library orientation.
    • Finish LMS course updates – X
    • Laundry - X

    • Reflection journal - √ - Got this done and revised my MFP profile.

    Little one woke me up at 4 am today. After tending to him, he fell back to sleep at 5:15 am. That left me 45 min. until I had to wake up, so my day just started at 4 am, Lol :cry:

    I'll have to be cautious today bc of the lost sleep. I tend to want to snack when sleepy; but I may be able to get in a 20 min. nap today if all goes well. Well, like it or not the day is here. I better get to it, Lol!! :blush:

    ♡Stay Positive♡

    Oh my ... I remember those day! Not much sleep LOL!!!! I have to also be careful when I am tired, as I want to eat. I hope you get that nap in!
