    Monday 9 December

    Log accurately >:) will catch up now
    Stay in the green >:)
    5 fruit and veg :)
    Water :)
    Fitbit exercise goals :)

    I need to remember my word for the year is methodical and improve on menu planning, shopping and pre-logging as I’ve been slipping and not always making good choices. I’ve also been tempted to a few extra glasses of wine!

    Not that good a start to the week!

    Recap M 12/9
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings = Fitbit 10,360 steps, 250+ 13/14 & 39 floors (lots during evening ~ see #4) :smiley:
    2) Eating at my desk today (crummy weather & hubby has appt) / net calories zero / 14c water = Net calories green :mrgreen: , sodium green :smiley: , sugar green :smiley: , fiber & protein low :s , 12c water
    3) Complete PA-RM :) lots more detail to review than I realized & submit for review / discuss BK request for participation in meeting :) LC to send Ted; I may need to keep reminding her / catch up Inbox (again) :neutral: keeping even
    4) Evening: Advent devotional :smiley: / decorate :smiley: finally starting to look like Christmas inside the house / put away clean dishes :) / make apple crisp no time/ other? decluttered & dusted as I decorated, took all clean laundry upstairs & put away. :) Drizzle finally changed over to snow late afternoon & challenging drive home from work but took it slow & no incidents. Didn't shovel inch or two of snow since it ended later & I was tired out from decorating, plus hubby said he would when he got home from work. <3
    5) Unplug 9:00 :smiley: / floss :smiley: / retainers :smiley: / bed & tv off 10:20 :( 11:00 but at least I was able to fall asleep right away (think my meds were causing me to stay awake previous nights)

    JFT T 12/10 ~ Throat still scratchy & energy levels not 100% so being gentle with myself. No morning workout.
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings
    2) Meals & snacks prelogged / net calories zero / 14c water
    3) Late lunch & 1:30 call w/ financial guy & hubby / PA-RM office summarization & submit for review / catch up Inbox from sick days / start PA-F
    4) Evening: Advent devotional / decorate more / wash dishes / make apple crisp / other?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / bed & tv off 10:20

    My replacement Fitbit is working but doesn't seem to hold a charge for as long as the old one. New one was in package for year+. A bother to recharge so frequently, hoping that resolves itself as I continue to use it.

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    January 2019: 186.0
    February 2019: 187.0
    Today: 196.8

    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: ATTENDED PRE FLEX DAY.
    6. Medical: Dentist Apr 30 8 AM but check on meetings and RS. Onco Apr ???. PCP Schedule for July. ObG schedule for October. PCP - allergy shots?
    7. Theater: Mary Poppins Sun Dec 8 1:15. Amen Corner Thu Dec 19 5:45. EGL Fri-Sat 3:30.
    8. House: Mineral oil on tile spots. Check with D about ceiling.
    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. Buy new bikes and bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.

    WFTY: Climbing. I haven't decided if I'm going to run today. It's supposedly rainy and cold back at the house, so we'll see. I didn't bring my gear to run inside at school today because I have a book on hold at the library and if I don't pick it up today I may not have another chance until it gets sent back to the library that shipped it to mine! So it may be yoga inside. I can definitely benefit from the balance practice!

    Calorie Goal Challenge ~|~ Start Date: 4 Nov
    (I'm extending this Personal Challenge)
    Stay under goal until Christmas Eve
    Days Under: 34/36

    The key is spoil yourself once you have achieved your aims and goals or do an act of kindness. Either way it helps you...
    If you have more calories one day compensate the next day.
    If you can exercise that helps burn the calories or simple strength exercises help.
    I have 1 stone to loose. Thanks to fitness pal I can enjoy anything within my calories and the incentives are amazing.
    Anyone taking the plunge to change their life are amazing in whatever capacity. Some weeks I gained or maintained. I just started again the following day.
    Happy Christmas 🎄 ⛄️🌟

    This is what I'm doing at the moment. I achieved my 2019 goal at the end of October, and have now achieved my UGW, so am practicing maintaining while enjoying small portions of seasonal treats.

    I am still logging and keeping an eye on staying under goal.

    @Faebert Bravo! It's not just about weight loss. It's about maintaining good habits and staying healthy. It's the boring things that keep us on track.

    I am going to keep the challenge going ... during the holiday season, it is so easy to put weight back on. If anyone wants to join me ... even just maintaining is a good thing.

    I have not been posting lately ... I've been swamped both at work, and trying to sew up gifts. I do this every year.. wait till the last minute! Right now I am working on 2 table runners .. that I need to finish in just 2 days because they are for gym friends. The gym closes for good on sunday, and these 2 friends are going to different gyms. So other than our "planned" monthly get togethers now, we won't see each other as much.

    But ... I am working hard at the snacking. Last nite I wanted snacks so bad, and drinking the water and eating a apple is helping me so much! I went to the QT here and bought one of those big mugs .. with a handle that I can carry around. Now I even bring water with me in the car ... and you all know how hard it is for me to drink water!

    Anyhow, later tonite I will try and read through the many posts I am behind!!

    No check in from yesterday...the seminar was okay. Got up and had my smoothie - ate a turkey sausage wake up wrap from dunkins on the ride. But the only "snacks" available were scones and cinnamon buns. I had packed a protein bar that I should have ate instead...but I didnt. Then lunch was friggin deli meat platters, which I'm not supposed to eat. So I made a cheese sandwich and had soup and a salad - not terrible I suppose, except that I drank a coke to help with the raging headache I had, then had two cookies. How easily it spirals! There was a cocktail hour to follow so I had two burger sliders and 6 wings and another cookie. Back to it today though. The more I think about it...the more I realize that yesterdays eating is not going to make me fail my 3 hour test when I take it - either I have GD, or I dont. My placenta is either making my hormones out of whack causing the GD or it's not. So yes, eating better to mitigate the risks of high blood sugar if I do have GD is smart and best, but I need to forgive myself from yesterday and just keep doing my best. I havent felt baby as much today - but I'm 27 weeks so kick counts dont start technically until next week. I'll call the midwife later if I'm concerned.
