    Recap W 7/22 ~ work from home rest of week
    1) Walk dog :smiley: cloudy, dreary a.m. & dew points going back up but done & happy dog
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (2nd floor to basement) / 5 somethings :smiley: 14/14 boom!
    2) Figure out supper / net cals green / 14c water :p -74 & 12c water
    3) Organize electronics & papers for work from home rest of week :) / catch up status reports / 10-12 webinar (pace) / progress on GA-IT = 4x :)
    4) 2:00 vet for dog's annual visit / RSVP memorial service / PM SW & set date to call / at least one to-do on list = 4x :)
    5) 9:00 unplug / floss / retainers >:) / set 6:30 alarm (walk dog) :)

    JFT R 7/23
    1) Walk dog :smiley: first mile in light drizzle, rest muggy & dreary but happy dog (another walker even said "now that's a happy dog")
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (2nd floor to basement) / 5 somethings
    2) Make Hungarian cucumbers / net cals green / 14c water
    3) Progress on GA-IT
    4) One autobody estimate :o / air in tires (stupid check tire pressure light) :) / call mom & dad / at least one to-do on list
    5) 9:00 unplug / floss / retainers / set 6:30 alarm (walk dog)

    Finally went for estimate on the dent & scratch on my car from last week's parking lot incident. Almost $1,800!!! Unbelievable to me, for 2012 Honda Civic no less, which I bought used. I met the woman that hit it, she admits it and I know insurance would pay. But I'm probably going to skip all that, have hubby do his best to repair and just live with it. I really don't care that much, and anyway know I'll get bupkis when I eventually trade it in. Hubby disagrees with me, but says it's my car. At least we got air in tires, and my garage door working again. Seems lately it's always something. Small irritants in the grand scheme of life, so I'll be fine.

    2020 Goals:
    1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19)
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP

    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking but include weights/circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race events ~ have planned 7 5Ks and 2 10Ks at minimum = Frenzy on the Fox 5K 49:36 ave. pace 15:29 / Seroogy's Valentine 5K 46:26.7 ave. pace 14:47 / Badger State Brewing 10K virtual race w/ dog on 4/2/20 1:44:16 ave. pace 16:33 / Prevention virtual 5K Fun & Fit Team on 5/2/20 I walked 3.48 mi w/ dog in 1:01:10 ave. pace 17:33 / RonaRunOff 5/16/20 virtual walk 5.08 miles with dog in 1:23:15 ave. pace 16:23 / 100 Miles Challenge fundraiser (per fitness tracker) & completed 5/18/20 / Bellin Run 10K virtual race w/ dog on 6/6/20 1:41:03 ave. pace 16:14 dog definitely slows my "race pace"
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states)
    9) Declutter home office, bedroom and basement = basement (boxes) Jan. / home office desk (some) & more basement boxes Feb. / basement boxes & home office (some more) Mar. / decluttered/cleaned in bedroom & more basement boxes Apr. / basement boxes May ~ very pleased w/ my progress / reorg in basement June & July

    Ahh I haven't posted goals for 2 days. Just completely forgot! Although both days have been pretty uneventful :/
    In fact yesterday I had to spend almost 5 hours watching a builder put down 3 pieces of skirting board and a door frame. And the idiot didn't even have a mitre block.. duh. I didnt even want to embarrass the guy by offering to use mine. But if I had I'd have neater corners...

    Although I'm glad that my housing association fix these things at no cost to us, theyre all like... half-a-job Harry's that come to do the work lol!!


    Will have to start again tomorrow with goals! Although I don't know what goals to set really:/

      @cesse47 - thanks for the support. I’m shocked I’ve made it this far with the streak!


      THURSDAY:
      - Log it all🔴 / stay green🤷‍♀️🔴
      - NO CHIPS!🟢
      - Visit nephew🟢
      - Housework🟢
      - school work with kiddos🟢

      I weighed my food yesterday, but never edited my food diary. I probably went over by a little bit.

      JFT FRIDAY:
      - Log it all / Stay green
      - NO CHIPS
      - Make pizza for the family, grilled chicken for me

      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*************

      I'm seriously doubting the validity of my scales, I've apparently lost another 6lb?
      I mean its hard because I do look slimmer, it just, seems like a lot to lose?

      Because on one floor (wood laminate) the scales seem wobbly and on the kitchen floor (lino) its.not wobbly?
      That might be because one of the rubber feet came off but its like.. a 2mm pad, i might rip the others off to make it level.
      It also keeps saying "Low" every Time i stand on it for low battery, so I'll redo that to..

      So er.. don't congratulate me just yet lmfao!

      Tonight I will attend a fundraiser that was postponed from March 14 (my very first pandemic cancellation). Excellent cause of no-kill animal shelter, and I had purchased my ticket in January. Lots of changes to this annual event: drive-thru style vouchers instead of samples, online auction already concluded, online raffle winners will be announced live on Facebook, and for those wishing to stay, outdoor live music with social distancing. One of the best things about this event is always the samples of adult beverages & food. Sadly that can't occur, but def better for my weigh-in tomorrow. Was notified I am an auction winner, so get to pick up my prize, and will hear if I win anything in the raffles that I entered online. Hopefully BFF decides to go ~ we haven't seen each other in months!

      @Bex953172 - They reset my streak! Thanks so much for that tip. I sort of feel like I cheated the system but I'll take it! I think you need to rip those pads off and make your scale level. We'll see if congratulation are in order after you've done that. ;) Look at her, she is so sweet! You'll get the tempers straightened out in no time, you're a great Mom.

      @cschmitz110515 - 1800.00 is an insane amount, I once had an accident in a parking lot, here in Alberta parking lot accidents are split 50/50 for blame. The other car was 10 or 11 years old, it had just moved his bumper a little bit, but since the bumper was all fibreglass and connected to the fenders they actually wrote his vehicle off as it was going to cost more to fix than the car was worth. It upped my insurance rate for 5 years waiting for that stupid thing. I miss the old cars of our youth that you could fix on your own and didn't cost a fortune.

      @pridesabtch - here in Alberta they don't do the grad photos like they did in NB with outdoor ones. They were all at a studio set up at the school, they had formal and casuals and that was it. I missed doing that with my girls, but reading your day yesterday, I have to say I'm sort of glad I didn't have to with my youngest.

      I had a good evening last night with Jonah, tonight I switch the Grands out, Jonah will go home and Michaela will come for two nights. She will be much harder than he was, she still demands attention and needs to be kept occupied. He is pretty good at entertaining himself.

      In August I am keeping both of them for three nights so their parents can go camping alone. Last night Kaitlyn and I decided that we would spend one of those nights at her house. If the weather is nice we can take the kids to the lake, have a fire in the backyard and she'll help me take care of them. I love them but I find them exhausting after a couple of days.

      Well I should do some work!

      @Snowflake1968 I'm glad they reset it!
      You haven't cheated at all! I'm sure the days you missed you were still doing your goals.
      Imagine you ran out of Internet or was on holiday
      I'd still be calorie counting (well maybe not on holiday haha) but just because youre not on here doesn't mean you haven't been doing it!

      @Snowflake1968 Car park accidents are 50/50?!?!? How does that make any sense?!
      So i couldve parked my vehicle properly within the marked lines and then left it there so I'm not even IN the car, and yet its half my fault, for what?! My car being in the way whilst someone crashed Lmao

      I'd be so annoyed at that law lol. I wouldn't even pay, I honestly wouldn't. Take the money out my dead lifeless hand lmao

      I'll admit it, im having a really bad eating day today. :(
      All ive had is a piece of toast and an egg. Its 6pm.

      And now I feel too hungry to even have the energy to make food. So I just gotta wait for Ash to come home with dinner for us and the kids. He did bring me food before but it was disgusting, or atleast I thought it was. So its one of THEM days. Where food doesn't even taste right.

      I really hate days like this, I've been trying to brush it off and pretend I'm OK but I'm not really.

      I want to start an exercise challenge but how can I do that when i can't even eat enough?

      Hopefully feel better tomorrow :(
      Sorry for the miserable post lol..
