      End of 2017: 174.6
      End of 2018: 189.2
      End of 2019: 196.4
      End of January: 194.6

      End of July: 188.6
      End of August: 189.8
      Today: 190.0

      Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
      1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
      2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
      3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
      4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
      5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
      6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning. ObG schedule for October. When is re-up with ortho? Schedule PCP for same day.
      7. Theater: ???
      8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
      9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
      10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
      11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
      12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story.
      13. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Therapy exercises: squats, push-ups, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

      WFTY: Progress. Fastest time on a 2-miler today. Pretty happy about that.

      Good day
      For Monday, focus on progress. I’m not in an event but a new lifestyle. This is the new norm.

      1900 calories: 1855
      Work out 70 minutes: 77 minutes including 2.16 mile walk
      Support my bride: piece of cake
      Make good choices: executed all day. Went up tot the line on calories but not over
      Walk after dinner: one of my favorite parts of the day

      For Tuesday, recognize that I have a choice in everything I do

      1900 calories
      Work out 70 minutes
      Support my bride
      Make good choices and focus on my health/flexibility for retirement.
      Walk after dinner.

      Recap M 9/14 ~ work in office
      1) Walked dog 3.88 mi before work :smiley: foggy in spots but not bad ~ happy dog & happy me
      2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors) :smiley: 14/14 boom!
      3) Leftovers for supper / net cals green / 14c water :D slight change in supper plans & evening snack of peanut M&Ms still net cals green :p 15c water :smiley:
      4) NHC to do list / xfer electronic updates from flash to G drive / clear some email backlog :) 3/3
      5) Call NP office / mail to Post Office / Sam's Club / follow up fraud case / one other chore ~ made chicken salad for hubby from rotisserie chicken & washed dishes :) 5/5
      6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work) ACK! >:) alarm was set but just couldn't get out of bed early after later than normal evening :(

      JFT T 9/15 ~ work in office & skipped dog walk before work
      1) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
      2) Leftovers for supper / net cals green / 14c water
      3) Organize for ANJH A/R audit / clear more email backlog
      4) 5:00 massage appt. yippee!
      5) Set mouse traps in garage (tis the season but freaked me out seeing mouse run across garage floor last night ~ I hate mice) / boil eggs / one other chore
      6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

      Last night, surprised when doorbell rang, even more surprised to see SIL standing there (they live 90 miles away). She was passing through town on her way home from attending funeral. First time in over 7 months someone besides hubby and me in our house. I'm not too concerned, she works in healthcare where she is masked & her temp is taken every shift. We followed social distancing for a short visit. She knows I love a certain cafe/bakery in her old home town an hour north of us, and she brought fresh specialty bread just for me. How sweet!

      This is why I monitor our credit card activity regularly. Finally got to the bottom of the credit card situation. Repeat fraud attempt was recurring charge for streaming service. Turns out, some merchants pay for service of updated credit cards so as to not lose income when new cards are issued. My credit card company failed to inform me of this last month during my initial fraud claim on the recurring charge, AND they issued us new cards. I also learned my credit card company does not notify merchants when a fraud claim is made for such a charge. According to them, contacting the merchant is my responsibility. Took me at least 3-4 phone calls, email change to mine instead of fraudster, password reset on fake account to lock him out & then online steps to delete fraudulent account info. What a pain!

      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
      3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability
      4) Take measurements & log on MFP monthly (I stopped as weight plateaued & went up) = 2.1.20 / 2.29.20 / 4.1.20 (forgot 3.31.20) / 5.1.20 (forgot 4.30.20) / 6.3.20 (forgot at ME again)
      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" / Hope Isn't Canceled virtual 10K w/ dog 8/29/20 1:43:10 ave. pace 16:36
      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

        Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
        1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
        2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
        3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
        4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
        5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
        6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning. ObG schedule for October. When is re-up with ortho? Schedule PCP for same day.
        7. Theater: ???
        8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
        9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
        10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
        11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
        12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story.
        13. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Therapy exercises: squats, push-ups, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

        WFTY: Progress. Weight creeping up. No bueno.

        JFT Tuesday 15th September

        Log everything logged the meals, not the snacks
        Stay in the green, weigh in day tomorrow very much doubt it
        Back exercises no
        Foot exercises no
        Walk no
        Collect medication yes
        Bank for parents yes
        Meeting at hospital regarding parents care, expect it to be awful yes
        Review parents finances before meeting yes
        Gardening if time just a little

        Time just got away from me yesterday. Hospital meeting went as expected, except that they couldn't wake Dad up so we had the meeting without him. That was the whole point of me getting my mother there! Anyway everything was discussed, then he was awake so social worker spoke to him afterwards. It was lovely that I got to visit him. His care needs are so great now that we can't manage it at home. He has to get used to the fact that he won't ever come home again, very sad.
        So I took mum home, she was exhausted. I don't eat or drink in her house as I'm trying not to touch things I don't need to (it's a bit erratic as sometimes I make her meals so obviously touching things then) but decided a cuppa together was required. She put out biscuits and before I even thought about what I was doing I'd eaten a chocolate biscuit. She's always been a feeder lol. I don't think I've had a biscuit since June. So I had a snack in the evening too, as well as a big mug of drinking chocolate. Actually felt a bit over-full.

        Anyway, today is a new day

        @littleblackskirt - Sorry to hear about your Dad, that will be an adjustment for both you and your Mom. It's incredibly hard right now with the restrictions for visits. I think you should have tea with your Mom, whatever helps you get through. Hugs

        @WellingTX - I love your little statement about time getting away from us. That is so true and something I need to remember.

        I have gotten so lazy in the evenings, I sit and watch tv or I lie on the bed and watch tv. I need to come up with a way of making myself move and do more, but I don't know what to do.

        I'll work it out.
