    Just for today? Track the food intake, track correct amounts, track b/c the right foods eaten, stay a bit under calories budget, track some physical activity.

    @Snowflake1968 , that is a real tragedy. That poor family.
    My extended family has also had a suicide this year, he was still a child. I don't know how a family ever gets over something like that.

    The Covid test sounds pretty horrible, thanks for telling us what it was like.

    JFT (Thursday): log everything, stay under goal.

    @Snowflake1968 I am so sorry to hear about your cousin’s son. I can’t imagine how devastating that must be for the family.

    I can sympathise on the COVID swabbing though - I’m in one of the vaccine trials and have to do and send my own swabs once a week, it’s not nice!

    JFT - Wednesday
    15k steps👍
    Log everything 👎 Giving myself the thumbs down - was a bit lazy with my logging and I think I underdid it! Bad old habit of mine.
    Stay within calorie target 😮I don’t know! See above.
    7hrs sleep 👎
    Plan menu for the week👍

    @snowflake1968 I would usually do the same with my step children! Looking forward to seeing them more often again. Sorry about your sad family news. Mental health is so important and I think it’s even harder for some men to talk about their mental welfare.

    Have a great day everyone - look after yourselves. I made some bread yesterday and had a massive slice with butter and marmalade for breakfast - I’d better get stepping! x

    I have a couple of little dozen daily tasks.
    Doctor’s phone appointment.
    Have not eaten yet but bar-coded ahead of time for the coming meal. Tried to bar-code in stuff just generally not for the meal but it did not work. Getting to know the system. When does the A.I. kick-in?

    Wednesday: all food logged
    Thursday: log all food

    Yesterday MFP was down just after dinner, and I wasn't sure I would get dinner in before bed. I was worried that I wouldn't meet my JFT goal! It's amazing how a group like this can help a person stay on track.
  • fstricklfstrickl Member Posts: 867 Member Member Posts: 867 Member
    Hello all! Looks like you're all smashing it with your daily goals. Keep it up, and if you aren't where you want to be give yourself grace.

    Today I will:
    - reach 10k steps
    - drink 1.5L water (even though it makes me pee every 45 min)
    - stay at our below my calorie goal

    Why is putting laundry away the WORST part about laundry? Been there and definitely will be there again (probably tomorrow because I'm throwing stuff in the wash today). Good job on setting boundaries with your work, that's so important.

      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.

      🌷Birthday project for grandson

      We were delighted to be told that grandson has graduated from QUB with a first class Master’s. He is deferring his doctorate for 18 months as he has got a job starting on 1st July.

      I’m Intensifying my training, as I would like to improve muscle tone, stamina and flexibility. This morning I did 25 minute warm up walk, 20 minute HIIT with dumbbells, and 35 minutes Standing Pilates w/out. I will still be trying to keep under 150, but think it might be a bit of a stretch, with the extra workout time.
