    Sunday December 1st

    How did that happen? I just can’t keep up and now it’s December!

    Another day without posting goals and being in the red however I did force myself to meet my Fitbit goals. I did think about not bothering but then things would have been worse....

    Tomorrow I marzipan the cake and Tuesday it gets iced. I just hope the board to sit it on turns up on those (ordered from amazon). @terririchards I will post a picture of the finished cake. I enjoy cake icing and have made a few wedding cakes for friends. This one was for my PA (her choice of design and colours for a small family gathering) wpnk3g6y9umh.jpeg

    Wow that is beautiful!!!
    Too beautiful to eat haha I just couldn't!

    @Bex953172 You have great skills for which we are thankful. Keep doing what you do, and being who you are.
    @mytime6630 Wonderful start. One day at a time, right? And you're still here, so you haven't let anyone down, least of all, us. We all need advice from time to time. It's what we do with the advice that counts.
    @Snowflake1968 Sorry you had disappointing sales. I don't think people realise the time taken to make hand crafted goods.

    I agree with Terri!

    @Bex953172 You really do have a lot of wisdom for someone so young. You make me laugh and you make me think. I'm so happy I've gotten to "know" you!

    @mytime6630 You have NOT let anyone down!! We all love you and we are all here to listen any time you need us. We all come here with our bad days or bad times of year, and that's what makes this thread so awesome...because we are friends and we truly care about each other. Please don't ever feel you've let us down. IF it weren't for you, we wouldn't all have met! I, for one, am so thankful for you!

    @Snowflake1968 I hope things pick up for you! I remember last year seemed to be a good year for you, wasn't it? I agree with Terri, that people really don't know how much time and work goes into these items. One day at a time, my friend. *hugs*

    Good morning! I seriously fell off the last few days but today is a new day and I'm ready to do this.

    This month there are four instances where I will allow myself to go over calories:

    1. Work Christmas party (not sure exactly the date yet)
    2. My birthday (12/22)
    3. My mom's birthday (12/24)
    4. Christmas (12/25)

    That is plenty of chances to enjoy birthday and holiday goodness and there is NO REASON for me to go over on a day that isn't one of those.

    Anyways.. here is my short list for today:

    JFT 12/2:

    1. Stay within calorie goal
    2. Wash a load of laundry
    3. Put away a load of laundry

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    January 2019: 186.0
    February 2019: 187.0
    Today: 196.6

    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.

    Hey everyone. Ive been quietly following over the holidays, but no posting or logging. The time off of work spent with family was so nice. DH and I bought a crib! He also surprised me with a mobile, sheets, blankie, and night light.. Its so sweet seeing him so excited. He had some friends over and I spent the night at my mom's on Saturday cause I was just too tired to do anymore socializing. But I guess he couldnt stop gushing about how excited he is! I'm working from home today due to the snow. I did really well over the holidays to enjoy but not overindulge. I also finished stacking all the wood yesterday so I definitely burned some of those pie calories off! I kind of love the first storm of the season and the cold calm before the storm, so it was kind of theraputeic for me to work around outside. Thankful to be home today to do chores as well cause ive got some catching up to do. Back to some basics today...

    Hi all, took the long weekend to not log or even be online much. Have caught up with all the JFT posts b/c I can't not read what everyone's been up to! Hugs to you all! <3

    The holiday weekend was a big bust for me. Hubby experienced a health matter Thurs. night that scared us both (thankfully resolved without issue). Had me thinking lots about our own mortality. That, and crap weather including rain & sleet on Sat. and 7" snow Sun. had me feeling pretty down, and I didn't care how much I ate. Just excuses, I know. I didn't drink my usual water. I didn't work out much, partly to rest my knee with tendinitis, partly due to travel, partly lazy. I did shovel wet, heavy snow & walk dog yesterday after snow mostly stopped, and man, walking in fresh snow is truly a workout! However, my pants are feeling uncomfortably tight, and my weight continues to creep up. I really want to get back on track!

    JFT M 12/2
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings
    2) Prelogged meals & snacks / no snacks at salon! / net calories zero / 14c water
    3) Check chapter emails / set up KK rule (what a pest) / clear Inbox more / play in Cognos
    4) Evening: haircut 5:00 / Schwan's delivery / start setting up creches / read Advent booklet & chapters 1-2 of Luke (something new this year) / make wish list for hubby / plan for Giving Tuesday / other?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / bed & tv off 10:20 (workout T before work)

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my MFP weigh-in logging day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 62, 5'4.5"
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI

    Hi everyone! Needless to say, I ate too much on Thanksgiving and felt like crap for a few days afterwards. It's my pattern, and I really need it to stop! However, I got back on track Saturday and Sunday by saying NO to sugar, flour and dairy and actually feel less bloated today already. My body truly does react to what I eat. I even dropped 2.2 lbs since Friday. So, back on my healthy foods again today. Like @cschmitz110515 , I got kind of bummed with the crap weather too this weekend because I wanted to take my dog out for a few walks and look at the pretty snowfall. But it got so cold and windy I couldn't do it. Boo... :(

    It's kind of late to post goals, but I'm going to anyway since they are in my head and I need to be accountable.

    Just for Today (Monday, 12/2)
    1. Journal every bite, good or bad
    2. 80 oz water
    3. No sugar/flour/dairy
    4. Prepare for work tomorrow: coffeemaker / lunchbox / outfit
    5. 30 minutes intentional activity
    6. Bible study
    7. 15+ minutes self care
    8. Close food journal
    9. Bedtime Routine: wash & moisturize / floss / gratitude journal 5 items from today / DO & SA readings / Read
