Meanwhile, here in Chez Dorm…

The appliances are doing the cooking while JD and I hit the books:

Turkey sausage and escarole soup, chili, and brown rice cookin’ away! “Scuz my blurry photo please…

As you can see from the calendar, my daily step count is way down and there are GAPS, as in more than 1 gap in the calendar. It’s looking pretty sad as I try to fit MBA studies into my life, at the expense of movement. I don’t know how the gaps are happening. I could swear it’s only been a couple of days since I last logged my steps, then I go to my calendar and WHOOPS! It’s been way over a week. My step counter only keeps data for 7 days, hence GAPS are appearing.

Yet hope springs eternal here at Chez Dorm. Behold:

Remember way back when, when I made this a goal?

Well, I’m still going to do it – only this time with a highly detailed plan:

Six weeks is all it takes. I can do it!
Six weeks is all it takes. I can do it!

Still trying to take time to soak in the beauty of our planet, especially with regard to sunrises and sunsets:

I sure am learning a lot about time management these days, and that I have to get a lot better at it. Lest I become a 200 lb bag of flab. Stay tuned!
