    Well i think ive logged everything.
    Dinner was a lot of guess work so might be over in cals for the day but after calculating what i thought im left with 26 cals.

    I dunno, feeling a bit meh today.
    The good thing is ive logged!

    Ash has just bought a pizza, crisps and chocolate.
    All of which he normally shares.

    Great prsctice for saying NO.
    But i do really want them.

    Going to fill up on water i think.

    This week feels like its going on foreveŕrrrrrrrr

    Hi Bex, NO is a great word, you can resist the temptation. Sorry Ash has put it in front of you though - I find it's so much easier when food and drink are less visible.

    Hi Girls!

    I'm sorry I've been gone for so long. You know how I get. I sometimes take looong breaks from social media. Lol. Recently was one of those times. I wasn't on Facebook or Twitter either. Sometimes I tend to drop off the planet other than texts. But anyway! Lol

    So we may have the culprit of Matt's stomach issues. He had an endoscopy yesterday and the doctor found two bad and large ulcers. One was an inch in diameter and the other was half an inch. His body is so weird that he didn't have any pain from them. I think that people are starting to finally believe me when I tell them just how *kitten* backward his body is. So the doc had him do MORE bloodwork and then sent over scripts for a Zertek like med and something to coat his stomach that he takes 4 times a day. Lol. We're hoping that that helps him out. I NEED him to go back to work.

    There's is a new Pokemon Go-like game out but it's a Harry Potter based game. So Matt and I have been spending a decent amount of time walking around outdoors the last 3 days. It's been really nice. So Matt completely detoxed from caffeine this past week. He seems to be doing better now that the headaches have gotten manageable for him. When we saw the doc on Thursday he said no more caffeine or chocolate. He's had a bit more energy and oomph to get up and do stuff. So I think that that might be the cause.

    There is so much going on on the board the last few days. And not very much good. I am praying for all of you. I hope that you guys can all pull everything together and make it through these storms. But also remember to dance in the storm. Lol

    Okay, so let me just put some goals up for the rest of the day.

    1. Log all my food(yes, even the ice cream)
    2. Go to the greenhouse at least once
    3. DO THE FRICKEN DISHES!
    4. Put the clothes away/remake the bed
    5. Make the dinner that Matt suggested
    6. Bed by 11:00

    Omg ive seen this HP app too! Just waiting until i get a smart phone again before i get the app!

    SOOOOO glad you finally have an answer! That must be a relief!

    1. Log all my food(yes, even the ice cream) :)Even though it was seriously over calories! Damn you ice cream parlor across from the laundromat!
    2. Go to the greenhouse at least once :sI was going to but I ended up taking a nap with Matt. I did take a walk while I was waiting on my clothes to finish though
    3. DO THE FRICKEN DISHES! :):)Just waiting for the hot water to come back so that I can do the ones from dinner
    4. Put the clothes away/remake the bed :smile: I still have to do this but I'm definitely going to! Lol. I just need to finish putting the pillowcases on and the bed will be made. Lol
    5. Make the dinner that Matt suggested :)He wanted Sausage and Rice that I made a few weeks ago. So I made it again and it was less than 400 calories. YUUMMM
    6. Bed by 11:00 :)It's 9:17 right now so I most def will be in bed waaay before then.

    Had a pretty good afternoon/evening after I posted that. Matt and I took a 3-hour nap late this afternoon. I guess we really needed the sleep. Lol. I kinda feel like I'm about to fall asleep on the couch.

    I got a text from D asking if we were still on for tomorrow morning. Thank God she reminded me because I would have totally forgotten. Lol. I wanted to do a serious deep clean of the whole house tomorrow morning so I'll have to postpone it until the afternoon or maybe Friday. I have a couple of other things I want to do as well. Like update/polish my resume and create a cover letter.

    I'm so proud of all of you women! You've all been working so hard! Keep up the awesome work!

    Hi Everyone
    Thank you for your comments about my friend. He has been transferred into the Coronary Care Unit. We visited him and his memory is all over the place. He knew us but was very confused and really couldn't remember anything. I'm sure that will improve in the coming weeks.
    I'm in Australia and it's winter here. Cold and wet. Our cold is like your Florida winters, so one has to put it into perspective. But, you know what it's like in winter, warm stodgy comfort food. I think if I don't put weight on, it will be a good thing, and I'm not.
    This is the first time I have used the laptop to log in. I usually use my app on the phone. It is so much easier to see and read others posts this way.

    So JFT

    1. Log everything - the good, the bad and the ugly
    2. Get some exercise in - the gym is warm and inviting. Go there!
    3. Avoid eating when not hungry.
    4. Avoid sugary snacks. Be honest - they don't even taste nice. It's a drug addiction.
    5. Be kind to yourself. this is the only life you have.
    6. Enjoy the interaction with others (JFT) who are on the journey with you.
    7. Smell the coffee and the roses.
    8. Have a great day. Life is for the living.

    Good morning! This week has been a bit bleh. On Tuesday my parents left for the airport to go to Calgary to visit my sister and her kids and husband for 2 weeks. Last week my mom had taken their dog to the vet because she was panting excessively and just acting a little odd. When they got to their changeover flight in Atlanta they got a call from the vet that the dog has lymphoma and likely less than a month to live.

    She is only 3 years old and the first year of her life before my parents adopted her was really rough, so I think my mom in particular is taking it pretty hard. They only had 30 minutes to decide what to do before their next flight so they decided to come home. My mom seems fine when I talk to her but I know her heart is breaking and I feel so helpless.

    For right now their dog seems mostly normal and like she is still enjoying herself so I know now my mom is regretting not going to Canada but I tried to tell her she did what she thought was right in the moment and I'm sure their dog is really happy to see them because she's not used to being away from them.

    Anyway, just needed to get that off my chest, I hope everyone has a great day!

    Yesterday 6/26:

    1. Give Rukia her a.m. pills 😁
    2. Stay within calorie goal😑 Not quite but pretty close
    3. Finish traffic course😑 almost
    4. Finish work at 5:20😞
    5. Workout after work😁

    @aubyshortcake That's so sad your your parents dog. Losing a pet is so hard especially when they are so young.

    @tristramtrent I've heard a lot of people say that weight loss is 90% the food we eat and 10% exercise. Good job sticking to healthy eating!!

    @littleblackskirt Awesome job ignoring the snacks in town! Those can be so so so tempting.

    @Faebert I hope your okay from the fall! That must have been really scary! How far from home were you?

    @bookmeister86 Awesome job eating in moderation yesterday! Eating out can be really hard, as you know! Very good!

    @jacqui2494 I'm so sorry about your friend! I'm hoping for a speedy recovery for him. I'm all about the warm fattening food in winter. Lol. Good job not gaining anything so far! Keep up the stupendous work!

    Well, I'm struggling with motivation. 🙄 I just can't seem to get myself to exercise. I plan on it in the morning then when the time comes, I allow myself to feel tired and unmotivated. I've gotta get myself pulled together somehow.

    Thursday JFT:

    ▪Exercise (x1 DVD)

    To me: "Just focus on exercising today!!"

    Today is only a half day work wise, I am then keeping Michaela and going to my cousin's to borrow a bed for the duration of the wedding. I'm very tired and my legs are hurting so I'm actually cabbing to work today instead of walking. The walking is nice, but I end up sweaty for starting my day. neutral:

    I will try to get caught up on posts soon, I am having a hard time finding time.

    JFT--Completed the list yesterday

    JFT--6/27
    Drink 8 cups of water---done!
    Pre-log meals---done!
    Exercise
    Breakthrough

    For the past 7 months I have maintained my weight. If I found myself increasing I would immediately take action. This is the first time I've ever done this and I'm feeling pretty victorious over it! This morning I sat down with myself and had an interesting exchange. I realized if I lose 10-12 lbs I will be satisfied. Any more and it will be like the icing on the cake. I then thought about how relatively quickly 10lbs came off last year. During this time I have watched what I eat, exercised, and drunk water off and on. I still have to do all those things even when I'm not in weight loss mode. But in order for me to start losing weight, I have to decrease calories, meaning less food, and make sure I quit eating by 8 and not start back up until after 8am.

    I so much have enjoyed the increased food amount, lol! And I thought, "Well if you'll get it in high gear and get these last few pounds off you will be able to stay in the maintenance mode forever! Just keep that little word on the end of your tongue...NO!"

    I'm soooo close! I am digging in and charging for the finish line...and then...

    (in moderation, of course!!!)

    Peace and joy!

    Yesterday was good but busy. Today looks much the same. I'm enjoying this new sense of calm I have. It's like I'm rediscovering joy. For so long I have been just existing and fretting and trying to be who I thought everyone wanted me to be. I hated everything about myself. Now for some unknown but beautiful reason I see myself and my life differently. I really don't care why or how, I just hope it is my new normal.

    JFT Thursday
