    I have been very neglectful of my email. I receive about 10 a day. I have over 5000 unread. I think the total might be close to 10,000. Dean used email pileup as an illustration of needing systems in place to deal with problems. I quote "An email inbox that gets out
    of control functions on the exact same principles that cause people gain weight, go into debt or consistently repeat the
    same mistakes in relationships."

    Ouch!

    My mom has email management issues. She's a very busy woman. Folder systems are my friend, but I guess she never picked up those kind of organizational things along the way. I wonder if this kind of course would be helpful for her!

    I read all of my email, but tend to keep it in my inbox "for later reference". This past week I started to delete or move to folders, and then went through the folders and started to delete from them. I finished 1 of them (I have 3 email accounts), it felt so good!

    I would love to implement Fly Lady's system. Another thing I will do as an empty nester.

    I love flylady! Love her. She has such an amazing system but I have never been successful at commiting to it for long. I get lazy and then procrastinate and then the next thing I know, the house is overwhelming again. I have created a list of things to tackle while on Furlough Fridays, though.

    Oh and regarding paleo... I am finding myself being more paleo and less primal every day, and I definitely talk more about paleo than primal, but I always recommend primal to beginners.

    While dairy and I aren't friends, I am finding it hard to stay away. I enjoy so much dairy... it's easy enough to give up for 30 days or so while doing a whole30, but when I'm not actually doing a whole30 challenge, it's so hard for me to stay away - especially when I make food for everyone in the house and they all consume dairy.

    BIW lesson 2 -
    Focus on behaviors, not outcomes
    Small behaviors make big changes

    I have decided to practice building willpower in areas other than health. I have my Paleo plan and my exercise plan that I will continue to follow. I am going back to logging food.

    I have decided to work on small behaviors that will help me deal with bigger issues. Email Inbox problem-Delete 25 emails and deal with new email every morning. Recycling problem - Bring recyclables with me when I go shopping. Every time for now. First week of every month when pile up is dealt with.

    I will be taking part in the Coach House Players annual variety show. I auditioned last night singing Patsy Cline's "Crazy". It was fun to be with my friends again.

    Love Patsy Cline! My aunt used to walk around the house singing that song as she dusted, my aunt's voice was almost as good at Patsy's, at least to my young ears. Lovely memories. I am sure that will give you something fun to look forward to doing, so it is not all work this summer.

    Love the focus shift to behaviors and small steps. I often feel like, reading from the outside looking in, that it seems like you tend to tackle such huge steps in one go. For me, following along with your journey, the small steps will be easier on me anyway

    I believe some things need to be done all at once. Like ripping off a band aid. My problem is not taking huge steps, but follow through. I don't continue to follow the plan...whether big or small. Hoping to learn how to retrain myself on this issue.

    Well, maybe then it is not so much the size of the steps, but how many you take on at once. For me if I try to change more than one or two things I basically forget that I am doing them. I like the idea from, I think it was Precision Nutrition, that you break down the step into as small a piece as you know you can manage for essentially 3 weeks, then once that becomes habit and you built up confidence you can add another piece. I mean, I like it mentally, it makes sense, I haven't accomplished it yet, and well, I forgot about it till just now. Maybe what I need to work on is my memory?
