March Progress Update

You. Keep on Trucking. March Progress Update I know it's only been 4 days but I had to share that I made some progress on my list. Regardless of the hurdles, like receiving 2 parking 2 tickets in 2 days, I'm 3 for 3 on walking the dogs. It's been a pretty rewarding experience too. Since Willie Nelson is still a pup, I got to see his reaction to his first gust of wind moving a pile of leaves. Priceless. Best part though of this experience has been seeing Buju being pack leader and showing his young brother what's up.

After an unexpected lunch date with a good friend (spending time with those I care about it...check!) I tackled Beachbody's Brazil Butt Lift disc 3. Somehow I've misplaced disc 1, God only knows where it is. The host is hilarious and the workout is challenging, especially if you have a dog that's grabbing the exercise band the entire time.

Finally no more pinwheel! Thanks to yelp, I found Chris who installed my RAM and cleaned the interior of my computer. Now it's faster than ever. If you're in LA, check him out here. Point for cake!

Sam and I got a ton of things accomplished yesterday, including my shopping list for Dr. Oz's 3 day detox. We braved Jon's Market together and managed to only get yelled at once by the crazy old people there. Afterwards we went mattress shopping which I forgot about how horrible that process is. As a reward we were able to spend some quality time with good friends while watching our neighbor roller skate around the hood. (Wonder if I can add that to my map for Skillshare)

As for the other items on my list, some are taking a little more time than I expected. Like this morning I committed to getting up at 6 but came back to bed. In the last hour I've take about 3 naps. Speaking of, I better get these 2 dogs up and running.
