    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" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI
    UG maintain: 145 - 150 (need to be realistic)

    11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.

    SW Year 2019 : 206
    SW Year 2020: 182.6
    1st GW: 185.4 :) Met this goal
    2nd GW: 175 - and learn to maintain
    Ultimate goal: 165-170, and maintain
    Goals for 2020:
    These are the healthy habits I would like to do in 2020:
    1. Lose 15 pounds to get to my ultimate goal of 165, and then learn how to maintain it.
    2. To be better with planning my meals each week
    3. to get up in the morning, and have a rough idea of what I plan to eat the rest of the day.
    4. To stop mindless eating. To learn how to eat to live, not live to eat.
    5. To make drinking water a regular habit.. and drink 8+ glasses of water a day
    2020
    SW: Jan 3: 185.4
    SW Feb 1: 178 (-7.4 lbs)
    SW March: 183.6 (I was down to 176.6. Then, spent 2 weeks emotionally eating, just not caring. Time to get serious, and remember how I lost weight, but more importantly, remember how I can easily gain weight!.
    2020 - March
    March 8: 183.6
    Mar 10: 180.6
    March 15: 183.0 - my own fault .. 2 days of stress eating. Time to get serious
    March 17: 181
    Mar 20: 179.6 - work to maintain that this week, or lose another .5 pound

    March 24: 178.4 (Helps that I am not going to the grocery store LOL!
    March 25: 177.9
    I set my goals while we are "shelter in place" and stuck at home:
    1. sew as many face masks as I can
    2. learn to play the keyboard
    3. work on charity quilt
    4. exercise at least 30-45 minutes, 4 days a week minimum
    5. keep house tidy


    JFT, Wed
    1. shipping today, so have to help hubby some:)
    2. go for a walk! Suppose to b e very nice outside!:)
    3. work on face masks... the need is so great. Plus, its the best therapy for me.:)

    This morning I dropped off 45 face masks to a ER nurse at our local hospital. She emailed me, and the happiness I gave her for doing such a small thing. She was in awe of people doing these masks ... I am in awe of our health care professionals, risking their own lives to help others. I am going to get feedback from her, since I used 2 different patterns, as to which pattern to use, and then I can just sew away. But tonite I already have 10 more made.
    And you know .. it is the best therapy. It keeps me from eating like crazy, worrying so much, and stressing over things that we have absolutely no control over.

    And, benefit is that my weight is dropping. I guess I can't do impulse running to the grocery store and going out to eat!

    So just setting simple goals
    JFT, THurs
    1. log all food
    2. sew face masks. such a need from so many. I know of 3 hospitals needing them, but 2 police departments wanting them.
    3. concentrate on water
    4. go for a LONG walk


    We can only control our actions ... we have so little control over what happens. Make the best of this time.

    No bunny for me today! I got 16 minutes on the bike but then spent the rest of the day at my desk or in the kitchen. Less than 4K steps for the day...this shin splint deal really held me back! I plan to get out there tomorrow, though, it’s feeling better and I hope a night’s rest will help.

    I STILL did not meditate. By the end of the day I just check out and atop looking at my To Dos I think. At least I’m not pigging out! Still calories green. But I will set Meditate as a separate task for tomorrow, maybe that will help.

    Howdy all. Today is one of my 2 days a week at work, and to be honest, I don't have a lot to do. There are a few tasks I needed to be here today to do so it wasn't a complete waste. Mostly I sit at my desk trying to look busy. At least when I'm home if my work load is light I can do other things. Sigh...

    Tim and I both have a cold, nothing serious, but enough to keep us away from our parents. Because he had traveled out of state and had a cold, it was recommended he get tested for Covid 19, but we haven't gotten any results back. My work said I still needed to come into work, but I'm being extra cautious.

    Looking back at my last post, it’s apparent that I’ve lost track of the days of the week!

    I failed to set goals this morning and have not logged today. I will catch up tomorrow! On the plus side, I did earn my 🐰 today.

    I hope you are all ok. @TerriRichardson112, your art work is lovely. @mytime6630 I am impressed by your efforts making face masks @PackerFanInGB i hope the rest of the moving process goes well and your mum enjoys her new home.

    3) Work at home = :)
    4) Review tax returns :) / send requested documents :) / send electronic payment :) / wash towels :) / other? :) washed dishes, washed fleece blankets, put away some seasonal decorations & balanced bank accts
    5) Watch Lent service on video = :smiley:
    6) Floss :smiley: / retainers :smiley:

    1) Move hourly (pace if I have to) / 5 somethings (hard to remember!)

    1) Move hourly (pace if I have to) / 5 somethings (remember!)
    2) Net calories green / 14c water
    3) Work at home / weekly status reports (funny, these will never go away) / back up work
    4) Virtual 10K walk with dog
    5) Floss / retainers

    Forgot to mention I saw two boys playing on their homemade zipline the other day ~ pretty cool! Sadly, all the colorful chalk art & messages were washed away in yesterday's rain. Today I even saw two mallard ducks swimming in a ditch on our walk.

    The Badger State Brewing 10K race on Sat. is now a virtual race. Since Sat. is forecast to be very rainy & Sun. not much better, I have decided I will walk my 10K tomorrow. Won't be my usual "race pace" but still want a respectable time. I will use MapMyWalk to track the distance, and I've been scoping out blocks to add to my usual routes. My youngest brother was supposed to be in the race with me, and already did his virtual 10K run. Today he ran his virtual half marathon, and SIL shared photos of his cheering section (three daughters home from college) along his course. How cool was that!

    @PackerFanInGB I'm sure you will be so relieved when your hubby, mom & brother get to town!
    @TerriRichardson112 Thank you for sharing photos of your projects. So fun!
    @mytime6630 You are wonderful for making masks!
    @Snowflake1968 I thought of you as I read the PM's new directive for Canada. You are in my prayers.

    Today required a lot of emotional energy. New guidance coming down from corporate, need to relay it, replan, keep people informed but calm and hopeful, all while I can’t really see them. Had two 15 minute breaks in otherwise 10 hours of video calls. But! I cycled for the first 30 minutes of my first call and went for a long walk when I was off the computer for the day. Green for calories, lots of water, crossing fingers for a happy scale tomorrow!

    @pridesabtch - I’m surprised you are still allowed to go to work with a cold. We can’t even have a cough at work.

    This meme describes my workplace very well right now.9yz654e1ykjt.jpeg

    THURSDAY:
    -Dishes🟢
    - Laundry🟢
    - Homeschool🟢
    - Exercise🔴
    - Yearbook🔴
    - Clean bathroom🔴
    - Connect with family via Skype/FaceTime🟢

    It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday. Most of the neighbors came out just to sit on our own front lawns and chat. I’m trying to encourage my mom to do the same at her house. She’s alone, but has an excellent neighborhood. I think if people saw her out there, they’d come out of their own houses to chat. I know she’s lonely and that’s one of the hardest parts of this.

    JFT FRIDAY:
    - clean bathroom (can’t believe this is still on my list!)
    - yearbook (seriously need to get this done. Likely the only special thing the 5th graders will get this year. )
    - Laundry
    - Dishes
    - Exercise
    - Homeschool

    Bunny challenge: 10k steps in nice weather or an indoor workout when I can’t get outside
