I missed last week so this will cover a bit more time than usual.

  1. Start each day with a sun salutation.  I'm really good on weekdays, this has become part of my pre-work routine.  I tend towards forgetting on the weekends or if I'm not at home, like this past weekend when we house/dog sat for friends.

  2. Stretch out after every run. Yes, more often than not.  I tend to miss one night a week, but that's still better than where I was.

  3. Research exercises that I can do in small time-frames (10 min) and create a daily?/3xweek? routine that will help with strength and flexibility. Complete by February 10th. Kind of?  I found a routine I liked and that I could split up and do in small chunks during the day in the spare office at work, and then we acquired guests in the spare office for a month or so.  Ugh.  I will re-evaluate going into March.  I have added a push-up to my sun salutation though, and nearly feel like I can do two.  So that's something.

  4. Use my pseudo birthday party list to start contacting friends, actually meet with one person/couple a week. I had a movie date with two girlfriends, and then nested a bit last week.  I've looked back at my list to find out who I haven't seen, so I know who to contact for hanging out next.

  5. Schedule and go to a massage before the end of January. Done!  I had a gift card that still has cash remaining so I will go again, likely in April.

  6. Keep knitting regularly on the poncho, finish by the end of February.  That means finish all of the weaving ends in and seaming, not just finish the knitting.  Next project up is the dragon. Knitting time has decreased in direct proportion to wedding planning time increasing.  I'm still working on it, but doubt it'll be finished at the end of February.  Hopefully soon thereafter!

  7. Research a new chiropractor / physical therapist and make an appointment by the end of February. Nope - I did a little research and decided I should see a PT first, but then stopped.

So the things that were already in good shape continue to roll, and the things that were iffy remain so, not surprising I guess.

At some point I will likely do a post about the early stages of wedding planning - it seriously feels like it's taking over the majority of my brain.  I am going through this cycle almost daily:  do some work on finding a venue / food - have a total freak out - talk to someone or just think it through and calm back down.  Next day: start looking again - have a new and different freak out.  Every freak out does bring me closer to what I think is important and what I don't care about so that's useful.  I know myself well enough to know that once I can get the big picture part nailed down (venue/date) I should get calmer, after that it's just details.  I described it to some friends as my stage manager brain being super annoyed that the director isn't making decisions, heh.  But the possibilities are still so wide open; date somewhere between October and March and maybe CA or maybe WI.  It's just so big right now that it's overwhelming.  But hey, SF city hall is beautiful...

Wonderful!! I hope you enjoyed the massage and I'm really proud of you for keeping up/figuring out what's working/what's not and modifying!

Hugs to you!

Thanks! I think one of the good things about this is I have to keep restating the things that are working, instead of just focusing on the things that haven't happened yet.

Excellent! Keep up the good work!

Wedding brain is tough - something that helped me was remembering that "getting married" and "having a wedding" are two different things that happen to end up on the same day. I got stressed enough that we got married privately at home and then had the wedding :)

Thanks!

Yeah I remind myself about once a day that marriage and wedding are not synonymous. It doesn't help that we have a smallish budget in one of the more expensive places in the country either - I really want to have the wedding here but we could get so much more wedding for the same amount in the midwest. I'm working on taking it a day at a time, and not doing it in chunks so I get less overwhelmed.
