GMST Challenge – Week 6: A Surprise Surgery

Well, yet again, this week didn't go as planned. But that's life, right? As I've discussed many times, I've been dealing with some health/digestive issues most of my life, but especially the last six months or so.

Getting My Sh*t Together Challenge – Week 1 Check In – Shi*t Got Done!

So, it’s only been a week. And good habits are not established in just a week. There is still a good possibility that after doing this for a few weeks -- or even a few months to be honest -- I will lose my excitement over planning and organizing and fall off the “get my sh*t together” wagon.
