2017 Goals - Weeks 4 and 5!

Two for the price of one! Because for the last 3 weeks at least 2 family members have been sick with something.  First fever/ cold/ then infections because the cold wouldn't let go (antibiotics), follows by a stomach virus.  Big kid missed 4 days of school, little kid still has it.  Daddy and I are just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

1. Exercise: as of Saturday 2/4/17
Running: 300 miles: To date: 18.33 miles  (running group started up again!)
Biking: 500 miles: To date: 0 miles (rain, sickness)
Swimming: 50 miles: To date: 4.19 miles 
Walking: 150 miles: To date: 21.92 miles
Weights/ yoga: 30 minutes a week (1560 this year): 216 minutes (3 weeks, sleeping on the couch)

2. Grocery bill: Keep it under $7000 ($134.62/wk)$xxxx (gatorade, saltines, applesauce).  I'm going to have to update you on week 6.  No access to the home computer and haven't updated the spreadsheet.

3.  Weight: Still good.

4.  Family:
Go on 12 family hikes: Zippo. Nada.  Unless cleaning up barf counts
Do game night once a week: Nope

5.  Crafts:
- Crochet a blanket (a "thermometer" granny square blanket, based on the temperature each day): Orange!  It was over 80 for 3 days.  

- crochet a purse: nothing
- finish a quilting baby blanket: done

- participate in my quilting group's exchange: nothing
- make 12 snowflakes: nothing
- attempt to make socks: I've pinned a bunch of instructions?

6.  Sleep: keep track of it and see if the low dose estrogen helps: Not great sleep this week because I was sleeping on the couch (see sick husband and barfing children).

7.  Food: eat vegan 2 days a week: Came close last week, maybe a little cheese.  No attempt this week, but probably close anyway.

8.  Cookbooks: Try 1 recipe from every cookbook I own:
Quinoa pineapple stir-fry from Veganomicon last week.  This week, nothing.

9.  Work:
     a. Skills: Learn enough programming to automate the data pulls for problem lots (which requires pulling data from 2 different databases).  Haven't worked on this yet.
     b. Personal:  Don't engage.  Really.  Did okay here.

10.  Home: Contact contractor/ architect on adding a second bathroom.Nothing

11.  Garden: actually plant tomatoes this year.  Baby steps. Nothing
Ooh, need to add: put some ground cover in the back dirt patch

12.  Spouse: once a month lunch date: nothing.  He was sick and I was doing triple duty (work/ kid/ household).  He's still sick, stomach bug this time.

13.  Beverages:
- Drink less coffee and more tea (one cup coffee per day): This was a rough 2 weeks.
- Do not buy any wine aside from my two wine club memberships: No wine here!
- Drink two 24-oz bottles of water a day, minimum.  My doc thinks that my occasional light-headedness when exercising is a combo between low blood pressure + slight dehydration.
Mmm...note to self.  Do not try to "make up" for a low water day after 7:15 pm.  I woke up 5 times to pee.  Ugh.

14.  Mom's nights/ dad's night once a month: Done!

15.  Host friends.  We hosted before everyone got sick.
