    JFT, 7/11/20
    - Post 😄
    - Laundry 😄
    - Fold the dang clothes!!! 😓
    - Write at least one chapter 😓
    - Figure out dinner! No takeout 😓

    I did nothing I wanted to. I had a bad headache all evening too which didn't help.
    And we got take out for dinner. I got a chicken parmesan sandwich but I didn't get cheese fries like normal so I guess I'll take that as a win.

    I'm definitely going to try and get the goals from yesterday done today. We'll see!

    I’ve been lost in action for a week or so and in need of a mini reboot. I had a good week off, got lots of exercise so finally feeling a bit fitter. But... I ate pretty much what I fancied and did quite a lot of guessing with the logging.

    Today I am back on the case!
    JFT (Monday):
    Log everything, stay in the green.

    @Snowflake1968 - I know that once I break my streak and eat chips, it’ll be all over. Trying to hang on as long as I can. It’s actually getting a tiny bit easier. And it helps that the scale has gone down since I started, so that’s always a good motivation!

    SUNDAY:
    - pick up party mess🟢
    - NO CHIPS🟢
    - log everything🔴 / stay green🤷‍♀️🔴
    - Laundry🔴
    - Softball! - first 2 games of the season🟢

    The softball season finally kicked off yesterday. Two of my girls had games. It was so nice to feel a sense of normalcy. Made me a little emotional just being there. Happy to have it going, but sad seeing the kids trying to keep their distance and wearing masks. But I guess they need to get used to it (if/when) we go back to school.

    JFT MONDAY:
    - Log everything / Stay green
    - NO CHIPS
    - Exercise
    - Practice music
    - Dishes / laundry
    - Meal prep


    JULY CHALLENGE:
    In an attempt to refocus this month, I’ve decided to try and give up chips. This will be extremely difficult. I eat them almost daily. They are my weakness. I’m using a bikini as my emoji, since that will be a goal for next summer!

    *************NO CHIP CHALLENGE*************

    - Post 😄
    - Fold the damn clothes!! 😄😄🥳
    - Write a scene 😄
    - Figure out dinner 😄I actually had two dinners. One at 430 and another at 845ish after Matt got home. Somehow I still managed to stay in the green. Lol

    I'M OUT OF THE 200'S!!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳 *happy dance* I've lost five pounds in 3 weeks! I'm seriously stoked about that! Maybe not an amazing loss but definitely better than where I was. AND I'M OUT OF THE 200'S!!! Lol. Sorry. I'm definitely going to try and keep these trend going! I wish it wasn't so gross out all the time because I would love to go for a walk again. But 95-100° with 80-100% humidity is very not good for me. 😭 I've been trying to do in-home work outs but it just hasn't been working. I'm ready for fall I think.

    Okay, onto some goals!

    JFT, 7/13/20
    - Dishwasher
    - Write one scene
    - Try out pomodoro timer
    - Investigate new apps I downloaded
    - Figure out dinner. NO TAKEOUT!!!

    I didnt even know you were in the 200s!!!
    Good job you got your own *kitten* in gear before I had to do it for you!!
    Well done!!

    Keep it up! Let's not see them 200s again!!

    I'm up to 2.5 real push ups and the remainder of the 10 are on my knees. Annoyingly slow process, but we are doing it!

    JFT Sunday
    - Weigh 😄 up a tick, but just 0.2 lb
    - Church 😄 first time I have actually gone. It's an outdoor service
    - Lunch😄
    - Hike, 40-60% chance of showers, but not storms. I won’t melt. :smiley:
    - Put away laundry :(
    - No other real plans. :smiley:

    Was rather disappointed in my hike yesterday, I'd allotted 2 hours, but the trails at the park I went to were quite short (but with nice elevation). The weather was perfect, slightly overcast and in the mid 70's. I only got an hour instead of 2 and was in a funk about it all day. I know it is still better than nothing, but when my plans are disrupted it messes with me mentally. Anyway, I didn't do much the rest of the day but take a nap and watch the telly. I also didn't have much of an appetite, but ate a little dinner. Then I was so hungry at night I couldn't sleep so I had a bit of a snack at like 1:00 am. Not surprisingly, my weight is up a bit today. Looking at my spreadsheet, I'm still within 1 pound of my projected loss. This should settle my mind, but it isn't.

    JFT Goals
    - Weigh in :smiley: +0.4 lb disappointing
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Check in with MFP :smiley:
    - Protein bar for breakfast :smiley:
    - 11:00 am Zoom virtual tour of University of Rochester
    - Home by 5:00
    - Rowing workout, 1K warm up, 3 min rest, 5x 5K w/2min rest.
    - Walk
    - Put away laundry
    - No cookies/candy
    - No late night snacks
    - No alcohol
    - Bed by midnight

    Have a great day y'all!

    @HEGoddard0928 Way to go! That is a super motivating plateau to break through, mentally as much as physically.

    I haven’t been making daily entries here the last week or so but I do read it daily. My head messes with me. Sometimes I need to pull back and only write in my journal, rather than in the Community, to keep myself on track. I had a long texting conversation with a friend yesterday and that helped put things in perspective.

    Soooo, for today, Monday 7/13
    1. Exercise
    2. Log all food, stay in the green
    3. Prepare the foods I need to eat, not just what other family members want.
    4. Grocery shopping for produce
    5. Make a schedule for the week with reminders on my calendar. I need more structure!

    Congrats @HEGoddard0928! Enjoy your success!

      I’ve been flat out since Thursday working on finishing DGS’s Birthday Gift. Delivered it to him yesterday at family celebration for 3 birthdays, 1 graduation and a new job. It was great to see people face to face again, albeit at a distance. Granddaughter flies back to Oxford on Friday.

      We are dog-sitting for elder daughter this week.

      Hope everyone has been doing okay. I will try and read back some time today.
    • TerriRichardson112TerriRichardson112 Member Posts: 9,721 Member Member Posts: 9,721 Member
      PS: it was only us and elder daughter’s brood (7 people) so not a mass gathering by any means 😂
