    This is such excellent advice. I haven't read the rest of the posts.

    I am a single mother, a person who was in the middle of both my single parents' dating lives, and an "ex-stepmother" for lack...

    Welcome, mschrisgo and congrats Chicken Lady on all your progress.

    For the first time in my life, I seem to have a summer flu (?!). Chills, fever. I'm laying low but hope to get back to work soon.

    I did an hour today on just little piles of clutter in the dining room and living room. I'm still in baby steps mode, which I feel is often how I start.

    Paige, I use the timer system for these 40-hour batches in increments of 30 minutes or more. On days when I'm really trying to do...

    Everybody has made great suggestions, so I only have one to add. I'm a community college teacher, and regarding email, I tell my students I check school email between 9 and 5 Monday through Friday,...

    Good for you, Chicken Lady, for your progress and thanks for the inspirational quote. One thing that always comes up for me when I start another 40 is a lot of shame - e.g. "Why have I let it get...

    Hi Gardnr, I would say it's a very "three steps forward, two steps backward" process. The quote from me rosa rugosa posted says it best. Unlike you, I've been pretty disorganized over my life, and...

    You know what a big fan I am of baby steps, Chicken Lady. Sometimes that's all I can manage. Good for you.

    Give up sugar and/or alcohol for a year.

    I find I have a lot more energy and don't struggle so much with depression or anxiety when I'm off sugar.

    This summer, I've had to abstain from alcohol...

    Hi Chicken Lady! It would be great to have you join me! I'll probably start a new thread when I finish these last two hours from winter, so maybe I'll see you here then there. So great to have...

    In August 2017, a few of us on this board were inspired by a video posted by George Takei. It was the story of a woman, Lakeisha Shurn, who went to the gym 100 times to try to get herself out of a...
