    My poem from this morning.

    Renewal

    The turning Earth reveals an awesome sight.
    The burning sphere of piercing, white-gold light,
    the universal energy sublimely rising,
    unimaginably awesome power surprising,
    in its majesty delighting
    every morning with its brightening.

    (C) 2020 Terri Richardson

      It was such a lovely day we went down to the boat this afternoon.

      There are lots of caterpillars in the garden at the minute.

      It's hard to be a nature lover when you're growing veg
      and all the little beasties are nibbling at each edge.
      My cabbages are slowly turning into lacy shreds!

      Are kids just intrinsically drawn to Peppa Pig?! Thought I finally finished with it with Marley and now Caseys started. And she won't watch anything else lol.


      Also I thought you'd all think the whole Kanye thing was ridiculous lol! He's doing some crazy stuff atm. I know he's got mental health but no one seems to be doing anything about it lol? But I only read whats in the papers.

      Stay in the green yes
      Back exercises no

      Walk no, more gardening
      Tidy bedroom/change bedding/get someone to help me turn mattress yes x 3

      Morning! Just jumping on to say hello! πŸ‘‹

      We’re adjusting to our new remote learning schedule, so I haven’t been on much this week. I’m planning on returning to daily goals next week.

      My husband built a desk for my older 2.

      I refinished an existing desk for my youngest.

      @SERmom3 such nice work areas and very pretty children!

      My kids are hybrid learning so they are at school 2 days a week and have assignments the other 3 days. They seem to like it.

      I didn't hop on yesterday because I was on the phone half the day setting up differing appointments, etc. By the time I was done, I honestly just didn't want to look at the computer anymore!

      I have to take Maddie to the vet this morning for a sore on her foot she keeps licking and biting at. The rest of the day is up in the air. I feel so much more at peace having made a decision about our future. I actually WANT to get outside and take a walk now. It's amazing how different I feel...didn't realize how depressed I actually was.

      @littleblackskirt I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. This must be such a difficult time in you and your mom's life. Sending cyber hugs and I sure hope you can feel them. xxoo

      Well that didn’t go as I committed.

      Fell into eating mode and bypassed mindful eating behaviors that work for me.
      For Friday. Don’t give in. I am not normal, able to take my eye off my β€œwhy”

      1900 calories 3373
      Work out 35 minutes 42 minutes including a 2.22 mile walk
      Make good choices and focus on my health/flexibility for retirement. Started good with my standards standards but mixed in not so good choices. Conscious decision not to work out beyond my walk, to eat on the couch, to eat past the point of food tasting good
      Support my bride, do the little things she makes this easy but it hit me that not making good choices and breaking my commitments are not the behaviors of a support husband
      Walk after dinner[/quote] sat on the couch and declined the invitation

      For Saturday. Let Friday go and start a new day. Can’t change yesterday but can change today.

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

      Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

      Age 62, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
      GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
      GW #2: 145 normal BMI
      UG maintain: 145 - 150 (need to be realistic)

      11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.
      1/10/17 = 185.5 clearly not a regular on MFP / joined JFT, best group ever! :smiley:
      5/31/17 = 180.5 two end of month celebrations / committed to posting weekly weigh-in
      06/03 = 177.5
      06/10 = 179.5 pre-10K spaghetti supper night before
      06/17 = 179.5 numerous meals away from home, several occasions w/ alcohol, happy no gain
      06/24 = 178.0 fluctuated during week, but ended ok
      07/01 = 176.0 Yay!!! Achieved June goal to stay <180
      07/08 = 177.5 oops
      07/15 = 176.5
      07/22 = 175.0
      07/29 = 174.0 saw at least one daily w-i below 174
      08/05 = 174.5 dined out for Girls Day Out & ate Dad's cooking & baking
      08/12 = 173.5 scale flirted with even lower numbers on daily weigh-ins
      08/19 = 173.5 had couple of high calorie days
      08/26 = 172.0 kind of a surprise
      09/02/17 = 170.0 Woohoo! Officially overweight, not obese :smiley:
      09/09 = 171.5 backsliding, ack!
      09/16/17 = 169.5 yay, the middle number is a six!
      09/23 = 168.5 have lots challenges in upcoming week
      09/30 = 167.0 met Sept goal to stay under 170
      10/07 = 166.0
      10/14 = 166.5 dined out 2 days with adult beverages plus wine & cheesecake at spa
      10/21/17 = 166.5 dined out 2 days plus food day in office / no gain is good [joined Just Give Me 10 Days challenge (daily w/i)]
      10/28 = 164.5 very active week & watched CICO / reached October goal of 165
      11/04 = 163.0 wow, really surprised at this, daily fluctuations very up and down this week
      11/11 = 164.5 this is temporary b/c very high sodium yesterday
      11/18 = 162.0 big surprise, especially b/c I weigh myself daily and didn't see this all week
      11/25 = 163.0 no surprise after 2 no-logging-food days (parade day and Thanksgiving), just glad not worse
      12/02 = 161.0 Jingle Bell 5K day / 44:37 chip time & ave. pace 14:22 & very happy!
      12/09/17 = 158.5 first time in 10 years my weight is 1-5-anything! :D
