      So impressed by how much so many here get accomplished day after day.
      Merry merry to everyone.
      My mother is coming next week (last minute change), loaned out the rollaway to a friend for her stepdaughter's visit, and need to figure a bed for her.

      Thursday 19 December

      12 hours of travelling and some dubious food choices. I’m pretty sure that’s not going to result in any weight loss!

      Just checking in quickly... to wish everyone on here a very happy holiday season!! I am so thankful for all of you! We are leaving tomorrow to visit our son in Michigan.. it will be a quick trip though, as we are coming back home for Christmas day. Our daughter is coming with us, and 2 days is the maximum for her, but hoping she does not change in mind on going. she is already having high anxiety just thinking of the short trip. But .. it will be nice.
      I have been totally off any diet the past few days ... a friend at the gym gave us a whole bunch of homemade cookies, one of our distributors sent us chocolate covered almonds! But .. that is what the holidays are for, and I am just not going to worry about it. Just try and not gain too much, and get back on track.

      anyhow... just wanted to wish you all a very happy holiday season! love you all!

      2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings = Fitbit 11,311 steps, 250+ 13/14 & 34 floors :smiley:

      JFT 12/20 F ~ Last work day of the year for me ~ wahoo!
      1) Potluck lunch & I'm not going to guesstimate for food log / goal is be picky, take small portions & enjoy!
      2) Drink 12c water
      3) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings

      Today is somewhat sedentary: annual workplace Christmas party at lunchtime and attending a Holiday Pops Christmas concert this evening. I am going to relax, and just enjoy the season!

      While off work, I plan to log food (most days) and walk dog on days we're home. Road conditions permitting of course... temps are supposed to rise above freezing, snow & ice will melt and maybe not refreeze overnight. Maybe longer 3-4 mile walks will happen = happy dog & happy me. I may not log into JFT during that time. Want to wish all my JFTers a very merry Christmas! Wishing safe travels for all those visiting others.

      Friday December 20

      No goals again! Too much to do and not enough time, missed my lunch, have not logged and am probably in the red! I will try to catch up with logging tomorrow.

      Wishing you all peace and contentment in amongst the more frenzied Christmas/holiday preparations. I hope you are able to enjoy time with your loved ones and take solace in fond memories of those you have lost.
