    @Snowflake1968 We’re on the home straight, as much as you can be as a writer. 😂 Every time I reread it, I add in something little detail. DH writes much less, so he is almost finished, but I’m proof-reading his, and collating the two, so it’s taking me much longer. It’s just as well I already had a body of memoir work to draw on or I would still be doing it next year.

    Hello and Happy Tuesday!

    Today is going to be a scorcher! 99 expected, and still at 96 at 8pm tonight, I should have gotten my walk in this morning before work and that did not I may be in a predicament LOL

    Yesterday didn't quite go as planned, I did manage to not interfere with dinner makings when I got home from work, my adult daughter had things started and I just pulled together a salad, as that would be the primary base of my dinner. Need more water, did not work on finishing the writing of the service for this weekends wedding--that must be wrapped up tonight

    100 ounces water
    walk late at night if possible, arm weights if not
    Finish writing wedding service
    Stay on track with calories 300brk/70 snack/400 lunch/50 snack/350 dinner
    Spend 20 minutes in organization mode working on sewing studio set up
    Stay focused at the office, getting ahead of the ball, minimizing stress

      Wed 17: 149.3🤔
      Thu 18: 149.2🤔
      Fri 19: 149.4 🤓 I was wondering if this uptick is connected to the fact that I have started interval walking/jogging to get my steps in. I did a little research, and sure enough, there it was, in black and white. When you start jogging, the muscles hold on to fluid for muscle repair. Can be several lbs, and it sorts itself out when the body acclimatises, so I'm sticking with it until it settles down.
      😂 Just when you think you have it all sorted, one little change throws it up in the air again. I'm guessing that this is temporary.

      @Snowflake1968 , let us know how your covid test goes. There are very differing reports here about how it feels to have one.

      JFT Tuesday 23rd June

      Log everything yes
      Stay in the green yes :)
      Back exercises no
      5 fruit and veg 5
      Walk if it dries up yes
      Parents weekly shop yes
      Iron bedding no
      Cut vinyl and fit in cupboard no

      I was so lazy regarding chores yesterday, just didn't do them. Did parents shop, and a few bits for myself. I bought their bread and forgot my own. I can't manage a whole week without bread! So when the rain stopped I walked back into town to buy it. Was out over an hour but forgot to time it. I seem to be forgetting quite a lot this week!

      Enjoy the garden, it's sunny today :)

      JFT Tuesday
      - Protein Bar for breakfast :smiley:
      - Meeting at 9:00 :smiley:
      - Start looking at development on new method. Nasty chemicals with this one. Dangerous and stinky. I gotta make it safe for the workers before I'll release the test. :smiley:
      - Scrounge for lunch :( Waited too long for lunch and ended up haing a slice of pizza when I got home
      - If not raining, leave work early and set up for ride so I can go straight from appt to ride :neutral: It was raining
      - If raining, Peleton or rowing :smiley: Rowing & walk in the rain
      - Dinner with friends post ride :( No ride
      - Max 2 beers :smiley: 0 beers
      - No candy/cookies/brownies :( Damn Oreos
      - Log everything :smiley:
      - Stay Green :smiley:

      Make yourselves proud!

      Food was not on point yesterday, I was under calories, but had pizza which tends to stay with me for a few days. The scale reflected that this morning. It shows a 2 pound gain which I doubt. Today is a work from home day so there is no reason my food should not be on point.

      After work today, I'm going to do the ride I didn't do yesterday, but just hubby and I. It's a nice ride, rolling hills with a climb at the turning point. I will try the hill, but I'm just not sure I'll make it. Actually I'm pretty sure I won't, but we'll see just how far I get.

      JFT Wednesday
      - Weigh, DAMN
      - Breakfast <300 cal
      - Lunch <500 cal
      - Afternoon meeting
      - Evening bike ride, accept the challenge and try the climb at the end
      - Dinner out
      - Log everything
      - Stay Green
      - Positive self talk
      - No sweets!!

      Have an exceptional day all!
