    JFT, Tues, June 12
    1. log all food :)
    2. april challenge = 8+ cups of water :)
    3. may challenge - outside exercise min 15 min :/ I was going to go at 8 pm, and hubby wanted me to wait 15 minutes - mistake! I started sewing, and forgot, and now it is almost 10pm, and too late. Well.... maybe I might still grab him for a 15 minute walk. But ... at least I did get to the gym this morning.
    4. june challenge - mindful eating :)
    June Challenge 6/12 ---- I drank a lot of water this evening, and it has helped. I have started a written journal, where I record when and where I eat, and put a ** next to unplanned eating. This alone is making me more aware of what I eat. Around 8:15 I was SO hungry for something cold. I even found myself opening up the freezer to grab a popsicle or low-cal ice cream bar. But once I start, even with low-cal ice cream, I tend to want more. So I drank 4 cups of water, and instead of popcorn tonite, I opted for something cold. Cantalope! And it satisfied me, so I think I'll get through the next 3 hours.
    5. go to the gym :)
    6. work on pc boards - finish them up :)
    7. start working on organizing file cabinets :/
    8. get back on here - be accountable :)

    Happy Wednesday!
    Let's make the most of today---we will never see it again.

    I have been in such a funk lately. Not like horrible bad blues, but just feeling off everything. Then I start to come out of it and that is when I realize the state I have been. You know, like it is with a bad cold - you fight it the whole time and don't realize just how sick you were until you start feeling better. The last month or three have been that way. Yuck.

    Weight - well let's not talk about that today.
    Planning meals - been doing well last two weeks. For my success this is KEY.
    Exercise - I've done better. Working on my schedule.
    Kids - No major drama lately.
    DH - Off work for most of the summer, getting lots of chores done.
    My Cancer kitty is still hanging in there.
    And me - still going to work every day. Well Monday to Friday.

    It is just starting to really get hot here. We had a nice May relative to temperatures. We are only now in June hitting 90 everyday and oh the humidity! I had about four inches cut off my hair and now it is poofing up if I go outside for more than 10 minutes.

    JFT - Wednesday
    • Stay in the green
    • Walk 8000 steps
    • Call Mom
    • Finish Relocation for the quarter
    • Eat to the plan

    Joan's June challenge - I am glad I read that. Not long after reading it I put it to good use. Yesterday - Monday - I wanted a something. I could not tell you what but the peanut M&Ms on JB's desk were calling. I think I just wanted a distraction for a minute. I thought about if I was hungry and went and filled up my water instead.

    Just For Tuesday Recap:

    1) Log all food, keeping in the green :smile:
    2) Drink 10 glasses of water :neutral:
    3) Yoga routine :smile:
    4) Physical therapy morning and evening :smile:
    5) Aerobic exercise :neutral:
    6) Kitchen closed and brush teeth by 9 pm :neutral:
    7) Revise game plan for fridge/freezer stocking :smile:

    About a 50% day. Would have been closer but I was playing an online game and missed my 9 pm deadline and then fell asleep without finishing my H2O. The exercise is where I'm really frustrated with myself. I need to get into the habit of regularly moving my body, even just a little bit. If I can swing a pool membership this summer that will help. Nothing makes me happier than swimming outdoors.

    Just For Today, Wednesday

    1) Log all food, keeping in the green.
    2) Drink 8 glasses of water.
    3) Physical therapy appointment + evening PT
    4) Quick produce shopping (have to snatch the red bell peppers while they're still 2/1.00!)
    5) Yoga routine
    6) Kitchen closed and brush teeth by 9 pm

    So, JFT 6/12/18

    1. Eat sensibly :( Haha! We went to a BBQ for boy scouts. I only had 1 piece of really really good cake and didn't finish the second cookie though. Lol
    2. Drink water!!! :D Left my water bottle at home. Only had about 24oz at work and like 24 when I got home...
    3. Do a quick clean of the bathroom :s Nope...
    4. Go to meeting :# Went to the BBQ instead.
    5. Bed by 12. :) At least I did something! Lol

    Well I didn't realize how much of a bust yesterday was until I looked at my goals this morning. Lol. Other then work (which was insanely boring, it was a good day. We had 2 house guests last night. It was fun. The DH woke up in a lot of pain though. Not sure why. He muscled his way to work though. He's got so much willpower. It's crazy. Lol.

    Well today is kind of blah. I haven't done any meal planning in a while so maybe I'll do that and make up a shopping list and such today while at work.

    Anyway! JFT, 06/13/18

    1. Log everything I eat!
    2. Do some preliminary meal planning/shopping list
    3. Put clothes away!
    4. Set up DH's Voicemail
    5. Bed by 12

    @Faebert thank you for the welcome!
    @junodog1 I'm glad that I could help! You were missed!

    Good for you! There's power in holding my ground and being accountable to myself to log every morsel of food. It's so easy to have a spoon of this or a taste of that and before I know it, I'm eating enough calories to stall the scale. And remove my sense of keeping to my commitment. I like loving myself more than sedating myself.

    This week I got lab results from a regularly scheduled blood test - my numbers were great! Sugar, cholesterol, triglycerides - all of them were well within range. This is another way my abstinence shows itself. It's not all about the scale or how my clothes fit - it's about how I want to keep my health. I feel that I'm loving myself - more than when I filled up on not-my-food!

    That is great and congratulations! It really does feel good to know that you are in control of your health!

    I just got routine bloodwork back today and my triglycerides were sky high at 450, HDL was low and LDL was high :( Super disappointing but I've got a fish oil supplement on order - hopefully that will help. Not sure how my triglycerides ended up so high - I've never had an issue before and my eating has actually improved. Ah what a wonder the human body is!
