    I stayed with my parents last night as we were back late and they were too tired to unload the mobility scooter. Slow start this morning while I showed my mum how to use her iPad to save and upload photos. She's not well (cancer) but had a lovely day yesterday and wanted to share photos with friends. We are now planning days out for Thursday and the weekend before I return to Skye. The days out mean more meals out than I usually do so I'm planning to be careful in between. At the moment, their enjoyment should be more important than counting the calories.

    My thoughts are with all of you who are dealing with family ill health; I appreciate we all have different experiences but it is hard to know the people we love are not well. My mum expects a "can do approach" and I do try but it can be hard.

    @nimackey98. I am pleased that you are feeling more positive today. I read your post yesterday and wanted to say something supportive but could not think of the right words so gave up (sorry). I was thinking that you know that you have your husband's support and that prehaps you were being too hard on yourself? Tomorrow is a new day, have faith in yourself and enjoy your family. You have a plan and you can do it.

    Same! I was going to reply to you @nlmackey98 because I know that feeling all too well but I do think we are too hard on ourselves, but then I went on to read more (I was catching up from last two days) and saw you were feeling better and was so happy to see it!

    She remembers where the cereal cupboard is and i regularly find her in there eati g cereal from the box!
    Shes a fearless climber lol! Today she climbed out of her highchair, onto the dining table, down onto the chair and down to the floor, thdn she wandered off to the kitchen to get... you guessed it... MORE CEREAL!

    she doesnt really say many words, i was a little concerned but i noticed that although she doesnt say much she understands ALOT. but today i got a very distinct "Hi!" And "Bye" with a wave too lol!
    She still loves giving kisses! She'll stand up next to you on the sofa and put her arm round your neck lol!
    And she does monkey sounds (oo oo ah ah ah) when she sees a picture of 1 lol!

    Will post pic tomorrow when shes had a wash LOL her hair is a state!

    @Faebert - I hope you are on the mend! Sounds like a good day today.

    @nlmackey98 - I cried reading your post. I’m so happy for you. Your husband sounds wonderful and so supportive. I’m just so incredibly happy you made this step.

    @korina75 - I believe one of the best decisions I ever made was joining this group. I gained 10 pounds leading up to the wedding and after while company was still here. I know without a doubt if it wasn’t for the friendships I have made here I wouldn’t have started working so fast to get back on track. I know it will take time but at least I’m working on it which is better than doing nothing. You can do it!

    @TerriRichardson112 - I am shocked myself, but I truthfully think a lot of it was water weight and getting my water in is helping so much. I love your advice to have a clean slate every day!

    @PackerFanInGB - I hope your husband drives you. I think that is needed. Hugs and love to you.

    @ZizzyBumble - Hugs to you as well. It’s tough watching a parent be sick. I agree they are more important than calorie counting.

    @Bex953172 - love the Casey update!

    SW - 186.6
    CW - 182.8
    The SW is the weight the day we started this challenge, CW is my daily weigh in JFT

    JFT - Tuesday Aug 13
    2L of water - 👿
    Log all food - 🙂
    Gratitude journal - 🙂

    JFT - Wednesday Aug 14
    2L of water
    Log all food
    Gratitude journal

    Well I logged all the food today and when I put in all of the cleaning 🧹 I did at work I think it balanced out. I put 5 hours of cleaning but it was actually 6.5 hours. I had pizza for lunch and McDonald’s for supper, not the way to keep losing that’s for sure. I’m sure my weight will be up again tomorrow.

    I cleaned two bookshelves off today and emptied two filing cabinets. Shredded 9 bags of paperwork. Tomorrow I have 3 more drawers in 2 filing cabinets to sort and then I need to organize some more.

    Since I now have some empty shelves on my bookshelf I went and printed some of the photographers pictures off from the wedding. I’ll post them in the next post.

    See you all tomorrow evening!

    Good morning! I totally forgot to post goals yesterday, but it was actually the first day I've stayed within my calories and I don't even know how long! We've been keeping my brother-in-law's dog at our house because he and his fiance have been going through a breakup. Yesterday my dad brought one of our dogs, Kya, to stay with us now too. I really want Rukia to come here too but he said he doesn't think it's a good idea for her to be here until we have a fence put up, and I completely agree, as I'm sure some of you remember what happened with them a few months ago!

    We are getting an estimate from a fence company on Friday, but I really have no idea what to expect price wise. On the bright side they do offer financing with 12 months interest-free, so if it's something that we can pay off within 12 months I think it would be worth it. I know it would be much cheaper to do it ourselves but I just don't see where we will possibly find the time!

    @nlmackey98 I am so sorry you've been struggling, but glad to hear you've been feeling a little more positive. You are beautiful no matter what and your husband sees that too! We are very similar, if I am anything less than perfect then in my mind I am just not good enough and it is a very toxic way of thinking. I still struggle with this daily and hope one day to overcome it.

    @Snowflake1968 WOW what gorgeous photos!!!! 😍😍

    To the rest of you, I hope you all have a wonderful day!

    JFT 8/14:

    1. Stay within calorie goal
    2. Finish work at 5:15
    3. Finish cleaning bathroom
    4. Clear off kitchen countertops

    JFT 8/13: Recap

    30 minutes exercise-easy does it :)
    Eat within calories :)
    Homecooked everything :)
    Lots of water, no alcohol :)

    Did well yesterday, and in a rush this morning but already lost some of the vacation weight. It'll come off a bit faster I think as long as I stay on track.

    JFT 8/14

    30 minutes yesterday
    Eat within calories
    catch up on laundry
    tidy up house
    10 minutes yoga/stretching
    Water at all meals

    @Snowflake1968 Thank you! Knowing I can get back on track helped me to enjoy the vacation. I wish I was better about exercising on vacation though! I always feel better when I'm at least exercising and I didn't do it. That's harder to get back to.
  • clicketykeysclicketykeys Posts: 3,350Member Member Posts: 3,350Member Member
    So the thought meandered into my brain that when our energy is depleted, we need food, rest, or both. I can't help wondering if the reason I'm not losing weight is that it takes a lot less time to eat than to rest! And not only that, you have some control over whether or not you eat. You can lie down and try to rest when you're tired, but sometimes even though you're tired, you're antsy and you can't relax.

    Hello everyone! Good morning!

    So Matt went back to work yesterday and had a decent day! That's all I was asking for. Lol. A new manager had him doing some stuff that he probably shouldn't have been doing physically(as in too much for him on his first day back) but I told him to talk to his other manager which he did. So today he should have a nice easy day of building bikes and getting back into the swing of things. He was pretty happy when he got home. Exhausted but happy. I think he thought that he wouldn't be able to stick it. Like there was just no hope of him going back. I know that he was really nervous when he got there yesterday. So here's to hoping that everything really is getting back to normal again!

    So yesterday I ran a few errands in the morning and then took a 3.5-hour nap in the afternoon! Definitely overslept. Should have got up after like 2 hours but such is me that I didn't and paid the price for it! Lol.

    So today is going to be a deep clean day! I feel like I need to get all sorts of things done today. I think I might run to Walmart and pick up some more cleaning supplies too. Lol.

    So onto my goals,

    JFT, 8/14/19

    1. Log all my food
    2. Up at 5/Gym @ 530
    3. DISHES!!!
    4. Clean off the tables
    5. Bring back the garbage can
    6. Walmart
    7. DUST EVERYTHING
    8. Pull out storage and organize
    9. Figure out dinner
    10. Do the dishes again AFTER DINNER!!
    11. Bed at a reasonable time

    - On time for work - :/ Not even close 8:40ish
    - Breakfast: protein bar and grapes :smile: -
    - Log all meals :smile: First time in ages
    - Fill out mood log/journal focusing on the positives from yesterday :smile: this was hard as the day was rough
    - Catch up with JFT a bit :smile: -
    - Lunch: Leftover Chinese, chicken & broccoli with very little rice :smile:
    - Work until 5:30 :smile:
    - Go into town to run, it's too overcast to run the windy narrow road I live on :( Gloomy and headachy
    - Do NOT stop and get junk food on the way home from run :smile:
    - Dinner with the family :smile:
    - Bible Reading / Gratitude Journal :( just didn't feel up to it. I was so tired and didn't feel well
    - No alcohol :smile: Even though hubby did
    - Bed by 11:00 :smile: I think

    Feeling a bit under the weather today, but emotionally positive. Yesterday was a wash, some good, some bad. I guess there are days like that. My race/run with my niece is Saturday, and I'm not sure I'm up to it, but I am stubborn so that may pull me through. Would like to run this evening just to show myself I can do it, but on solo runs it's easy for me to walk even when I don't really need to. I mean if you only need to stop and walk for 30s, you probably didn't need to stop just to slow down. Damn I just looked at my schedule and that run isn't likely to happen tonight...

    JFT Wednesday

    - Get up and get ready :smiley: did my hair and everything and still made it to work by my normal time (30min late). It does feel good to look good.
    - Pack lunch and fruit for breakfast :smile:
    - Breakfast: protein bar & applesauce :smile:
    - Get samples in the oven for their 3 our extraction. Random worky stuff.
    - Lunch - Chicken breast over baby spinach with a bit of Italian dressing and mixed berries
    - Work up samples.
    - Attend Co-op's Exit Presentation
    - Work until 5:30, or leave at 4:00 and help the kiddo set up her checking account.
    - Meeting with school about NCAA student athlete information/requirements. Yup, it's time to look at colleges and the kid wants to row in college. I have no idea how to go about this. Hopefully this session will help.
    - Dinner within calories either before or after meeting. It may be a fast food or restaurant kind of dinner = stress.
    - Do my Bible reading and gratitude journal. I kind of got out of the habit on vacation.
    - No alcohol
    - Bed by 11:00

    Positive thought for today: I have the capacity to love all people, and to forgive all grievances I've encountered thus far, but there are only a few select people I can trust with my heart. These are the people I cherish.

    @Snowflake1968 Those pictures are phenomenal. The photographer nailed it and captured the light-hearted joy in the moment. I never can figure out how they come up with some of the shots and angles they find. It didn't hurt that he had beautiful subjects.

    And yes my husband is amazing. I sometimes feel he loves me too much, but that is a problem I am happy to deal with.

    @aubyshortcake I am totally with you on do-it-yourself projects. We probably have the skill to do things, but we just don't have the time or patience to do them.

    @HEGoddard0928 I'm so happy Matt had a positive first day back! I must say, I'm a little jealous of the nap. You're right though more than 2 hours messes things up.

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to PB for comments due Friday. PB usernames 6 digits, no 19 or 20s, no birthdates. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri.
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week -Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. NOTE: ATTEND POST FLEX DAY RATHER THAN PRE FLEX DAY.
    6. Medical: Dentist Oct 29 8 AM. Onco Oct 22 9:30. PCP Sept 18 10:15. ObG Oct 22 10:30. GET MAGAZINES FOR COLLAGES FROM DOCTORS. PCP - allergy shots?
    7. Theater: Mamma Mia. Next?
    8. House: Mineral oil on tile spots. Check with D about ceiling and taking items to the dump.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Get bikes fixed.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter.
