@PackerFanInGB Thank you so much!! I agree this is our year for health success!!!!
Prayers for you and your hubby!!
Just a side note: This "disagree" tab is new to me. I understand its purpose but nevertheless I do wonder, "Who or why someone disagreed with the previous post?" If I'm not a positive light in this crowd and someone is not happy I'm back, please PM me. I know I'm not perfect but I DO want to be supportive for everyone when I can. I understand there's a bunch of new people so I don't want to upset the thread by returning.

-water goal But just barely. Lol.
-bring lunch/clothes to school Brought both but only ate the lunch. I didn't end up going to the gym because I just didn't feel like it tbh.
-pick 2 orders I kept looking but no orders showed up every time I did. I'm hoping for better results today since it's Saturday.
-go to gym See above
- WRITE CHAPTER 20!!! About damn time. Lol. The end of the chapter was a bit of a cop-out but the point of the first draft is to just get it written.
-empty/fill/run dishwasher Nope. It's such an easy thing now too.
-eat leftovers for dinner Ate too many cookies, had too much wine and ate tater tots for dinner.

Happy Friday! I hope the weekend is kind to everyone, whether that means a little self-care, a break from stress, or a chance to make progress on personal goals.
I had a pretty good day yesterday, despite getting less done than I should have. First appt. with my new Primary Care doc went well, and I was really happy to see some positive changes in BP and HR, in addition to the lowest 'official" weight I've posted in two decades! The support I found on MFP has really made a difference in helping me stick to my weight-loss and exercise plans. Still waiting on bloodwork for the gym sign-off, but I'm optimistic.
Spent the rest of the day with my daughter, which meant punting on chores. We had a not-so-healthy lunch (although I stayed under calories for the day), walked indoors, and shopped for some exercise clothes. It was lovely! I still have another week of break, so no stress (yet).
Busy weekend ahead with my husband's birthday on Saturday and a visit to my mom's on Sunday. Around that, we'll be taking down the tree and packing up the Christmas decorations. Maybe seeing those go will put me in a more productive mindset.
Goals for Thursday, January 9, 2020
• Up with alarm -√
• Physical with new Primary Care Physician - √ - Went really well!
• Clean out the fridge – No
• Work on syllabus – No
• Complete food log and maintain a calorie deficit - √JFT Goals for Friday, January 10, 2020

• Complete food log and maintain a calorie deficit
• Straighten house for the weekend

Depth Year - Updates
I definitely have way too much stuff. I need to streamline my existence, resist adding more stuff, and start using what I have already got. I have been working towards doing this for several years with my decluttering. I need to stop the march of consumerism, and putting money into the pockets of other people by buying things I want rather than actually need.03 Jan: This is going to be way harder than I thought. Need to work out strategies and guidelines for what I can and cannot purchase.
I have a stack of books which I haven't read. I will read one of those book a month, and not buy any more books this year. I will source any other books I want to read at the library.
04 Jan: The Illusionists - Rosie Thomas > 5 chapters per week
I have closets full of clothes that no longer fit. I will work my way through them over the next two months, and either alter them to fit, or donate them to charity.
07 Jan: One bag already full and ready to go to the charity shop
I have a lot of Craft supplies. I will optimise what I have before I buy any new supplies. Sticking to this one will be difficult.
07 Jan: Depth Year: I have Parchment Craft this morning. I will pick out one of my ongoing projects and work on it to completion. No new projects until I have finished at least 3 ongoing ones.
Food: log All food and drink; stay under goal; balance macros/micros; Hydrate adequately; NLNS!!!
Exercise: Knee Physio; 7,500+ Steps daily; 30 + minutes intentional exercise
Other: Daily Mindfulness Practice/Meditation; Practice Self-care; Positively reframe thoughts; Live! Love! Learn!; 15 mins Daily Declutter session; keep up to date with chores

Anyone else read the extensive Goal lists we write and become torn between totally impressed and “we expect too much of ourselves!”
Some of you (@cschmitz100515, @pridesabtch, and more) are doing so much in a single day it’s amazing. No wonder we struggle with finding time for ourselves.
Good luck, my hat is off to you, and I think we all deserve a few days on a warm beach just listening to the waves lap the shore...

Climbing on that spin back 4-5 days a week until I can get outside.
Climbing to reach my goals without letting my pride stop me.
