    @ZizzyBumble Congrats on making a good choice and avoiding the big drink. I’ve been in the same situation, it’s hard in the moment, but as you noted, it doesn’t solve the actual problem!

    @pridesabtch Congratulations on your Peloton ride! 🎉 🍾 Hope it feels as good as it should!

    @Snowflake1968 Congratulations for staying in the green! You’re moving and you’re meeting your eating goals, that’s big.

    Friday 5 June

    Log :)
    Stay in the green :)
    5 fruit and veg :)
    Water :)
    Fitbit goals >:) circumstances dictated otherwise.

    Complete home delivery shopping order and plan meals for the week ✅. Delivery is this morning, they were out of stock on the white wine I’d requested and haven’t made a substitution so I’m definitely on rations for the next week! (I can’t go shopping as I’m shielding as I’m caring for my terminally ill mum)

    @Snowflake1968 , Swimming is lovely! I hope the pools are able to open on your area soon. I try to have a lunchtime walk to stop me being too grumpy!

    @cesse47 , the video you do looks great! I’m sure you’ll get to the 10 minutes soon and be upping your weights! I would recommend a class when they’re able to open - it’s really handy to have someone check your form I think.

    I hope everyone has a great day today. So many amazing commitments and achievements! I’m going to try and do some meal prepping this weekend after reading the posts here x

    @Snowflake1968, we have just had restrictions lifted enough to allow us to meet family, but it has to be outside only. Before, the weather was really sunny, but now it is quite rainy and cold :)

    JFT Friday 5th June

    Log everything Yes, still in the red, but only by 100 cals
    Back exercises Yes
    Drink enough Yes
    Walk in evening No, weather was bad but no excuses
    Finish painting Yes! Can finally put all the painting things away
    Some chores to help parents. This is difficult right now, as they are shielding and I'm not meant to go into their house. Lots of phone calls and swapping things on the doorstep. Some, more today

    JFT Saturday 6th June

    Log everything
    Back exercises
    Drink enough
    Walk
    Tidy the house
    Garden if weather improves
    Cut lawn

    Not sure what I'll do today. It's funny how weekends still feel different, even though I can't work right now and every day is the same! I'm tired, as I've been awake in the night with toothache the last few nights. Trying to treat it myself as dentists are all closed.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    I highly recommend weight training for everyone thinking about it. I started weight training a few months ago. I do the Strong Lifts 5x5 program. I’ve never had a trainer, so I feel like I’m still working on my form, but I’m definitely getting stronger and I love that.

    Have a great day y’all. Make yourselves proud!

    Yesterday was great. Sure I missed a few goals, mostly because I had a lot of calories left in the day and decided to have a few drinks. Oh well, it happens and I was still under by about 700 cal.

    Today, my oldest is leaving to go camping with a friend so we are taking the youngest and her bestie kayaking. I love kayaking. I've only done it a few times, but it is so fun and it's great upper body exercise. Hope I can lift my arms tomorrow! After rowing, the youngest is spending the night with a friend and hubby is taking me out on a date. So I'll get all dressed up and even do my hair and makeup which never happens these days.

    JFT Saturday
    - Make kids cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and eat a protein bar
    - Head out to the lake to kayak
    - 2 hours on the lake
    - Drop Thea off at home
    - Buy stamps & Mail Graduation cards for family
    - Get showered and dolled up for hubby
    - Night on the town
    - Log everything
    - Don't go over calories by more than 500

    Have great day all!

    @SERmom3 I love strength training, can't wait for my gym yo open back up!

    Is this a program you paid for or is it on YouTube? Since I'm 60 now, I want to start out small and build up. But I do feel that I need to strengthen my muscles. I don't want to be in a commercial in 10 years laying on the floor crying that "I've fallen and I can't get up!" Plus, I have terrible balance...so weak ankles is another area I need to work on. I was thinking about Tai Chi for that...

    This sounds like a wonderful day! I would love to get a kayak and have discussed it with my husband. He doesn't like it so I'd have to go alone, and I don't know if that's such a good idea though. So I go back and forth with that. Have FUN on your date! That really sounds fun too!

    • Begin reading Bible again. Not sure why I stopped this. My whole routine changed with COVID shutdown and work furlough. :#
    • Spend time chatting with God. :)


    Yesterday was a mixed bag. I started out in the morning feeling really good and had high hopes for the day, but it felt like I hit a brick wall around 1pm. My body felt exhausted and my eyes were burning and I just needed to lay down and shut my eyes. So, I listened and spent the afternoon in a dark room and started reading a new mystery. It felt like such a wasted day but I just couldn't fight it. I guess we just have to listen to our bodies sometimes and don't need to know why... I slept through the night and didn't wake up until 9:30 this morning and I had to MAKE myself get up! Dang....

    Today is gorgeous. 73 with sunny blue skies. Doors and windows are open and all I can hear right now are the birds singing out back. TV is off because husband is over scraping and priming the outside of my mom's house. I find the older I get, the more I like quiet and the sounds of nature versus the sounds of TV or radio. It;s odd because I've always been such an extrovert and used to like to "party" quite a bit when I was younger.

    I wanted to hop on and say hey to everyone and post some goals before I get moving. I am not going to sit around doing nothing again! LOL! :)

    JFT - Friday June 5
    1L of Water - 👿
    Log all Food - 🙂 I did but it wasn’t pretty green. If there was a darker shade of red that’s what it would have been.
    Gratitude Journal - I fell asleep on the couch and didn’t wake up until almost 1am so no.

    JFT - Saturday June 6
    1L of Water
    Log all Food
    Gratitude Journal

    @ZizzyBumble - I hope someone can make a wine delivery for you.

    @jenwalkingfurther - I used to walk at lunch at my old job. It’s not really possible here because of a short break time.

    @littleblackskirt - We are allowed to gather up to 50 now as long as 6ft distance can be maintained. No sharing of food as in family style eating. It’s very strange really. I hope your tooth gives you some relief soon.

    @teigansdad - 😂 they really do have a personality attached to them that makes them hard to resist. Does your whole family like them or just you? I find I have to buy treats for my husband that I don’t like that way I don’t succumb to temptation.
    My downfall is chips and an ice cold coke. I used to not allow it in the house and if I really wanted it and kept craving it I made myself walk to the store to get it. I need to set that rule again.

    @PackerFanInGB - I have a friend that is single, she goes kayaking and camping alone all the time. I always worry about her.

    Tried to have a video chat with my Mom this morning, but her side froze up and the staff member of the home had left the room. Hopefully they call back later.
    I don’t have any plans today, it is raining and cold again. Last summer was terrible and I’m hoping this summer is not the same.

    Have a great day everyone

    @HEGoddard0928 - I never thought that I was one to eat my feelings either, but I’ve learned that I eat crazy amounts when I’m bored. It’s awful. Hope you have a good say
