    Saturday 19 January

    Log :)
    Stay in the green :)
    5 fruit and veg :)
    Water :)
    Fitbit exercise goals :)

    First day this year that I’ve seen a drop in my Happy scale moving average :) Now I need to keep going in the right direction.

    Sunday Jan 20

    I’m catching up after a large start

    Today’s goals are the same as usual and some have already been met.

    I’ve met today’s goals and the scale had dropped again this morning. :)

    I hope you’ve all had a good weekend.

    Woke up feeling under pressure this morning as I had groups both morning and afternoon. I adjusted my exercise expectations, and felt less stressed. Sometimes you have to just go with the flow.

    Another New day! Another opportunity to achieve great things, one step at a time.

    The only failure is giving up!

    WFTY: DEPTH
    Depth Year - Updates
    I definitely have way too much stuff. I need to streamline my existence, resist adding more stuff, and start using what I have already got. I have been working towards doing this for several years with my decluttering. I need to stop the march of consumerism, and putting money into the pockets of other people by buying things I want rather than actually need.
    03 Jan: This is going to be way harder than I thought. Need to work out strategies and guidelines for what I can and cannot purchase.
    1. I have a stack of books which I haven't read. I will read one of those book a month, and not buy any more books this year. I will source any other books I want to read at the library.
    2. 04 Jan: The Illusionists - Rosie Thomas > 5 chapters per week
    3. 12 Jan: finished chapter 18, so well ahead of goal.
    4. 13 Jan: finished my 1st book: Will start the 2nd tomorrow
    5. Book 2: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, Gail Honeyman
    6. I have closets full of clothes that no longer fit. I will work my way through them over the next two months, and either alter them to fit, or donate them to charity.
    7. 07 Jan: One bag already full and ready to go to the charity shop
    8. I have a lot of Craft supplies. I will optimise what I have before I buy any new supplies. Sticking to this one will be difficult.
    9. 07 Jan: Depth Year: I have Patchwork Craft this morning. I will pick out one of my ongoing projects and work on it to completion. No new projects until I have finished at least 3 ongoing ones.
    10. 14 Jan: Craft Group: working on patchwork project from last Tues.

    My day came out pretty much as expected...
    Had hoped to have 500 calorie green margin, thanks to the beer and dinner w friends that didn’t happen. I did however stay in the green, burn over 1000 calories on trainer and budget my intake so that I stayed w/in goal even though I ate probably 2900 calories for dinner 🤢
    Not a healthy way to live or get good performance from this body of mine but I do feel just a little less guilty.

    Tomorrow back on track. Have the day off so can do some serious caloric redemption

    Goals:
    at least 500 calorie in the green
    Sufferfest and then a beach body (need to add some resistance training)
    No beer
    Drink at least 2 liters of water

    Monday weigh-in/accountability:
    Original starting weight: 180lbs
    Last week’s weight: 142.2
    Today’s weight: 141.0

    Getting so close to my original goal of 140lbs!!

    Sunday:
    - workout 🟢
    - Stay in the green🟢
    - Pick up one piece of trash while out🟢
    - Complete computer tasks🔴
    - Work with DH to set 2020 budget goals🔴
    - Water🟢
    - Sing for 3 masses🟢
    - Dishes🟢
    - Organize shoes in the basement🟢

    The town plows the main sidewalks, so I figured I’d try for a walk yesterday. The plow doesn’t get all the way to the pavement, so I’m still walking through snow. It was a much more difficult workout. It’s like walking in the sand, where your feet slip back with every step. It was way more exhausting than normal!

    Kids don’t have school today. We’re going to go to a local performance to celebrate MLK.

    JFT Monday:
    - workout
    - Stay in the green
    - Pick up one piece of trash while out
    - Complete computer tasks
    - Water
    - Review music for rehearsal tonight
    - Dishes
    - Organize oldest daughter’s drawers
    - Laundry
    - Dinner at the dining room table

    Happy to see so many of you crushing goals last week! Hope we can all continue it this week!!

    Happy Monday! Today's a school holiday, so I'll be going out to do something with the grandkids. Not sure about goals. I didn't set any yesterday, and I'm not feeling particularly motivated to set any today.

    I also didn't log or really even try to moderate what I ate yesterday. Not a binge, but I just ate what I wanted without measuring or counting calories. I'm hoping I just need two or three days off and then will be able to get back on track.

    On the up side, yesterday I had a lovely walk with my eldest grandson in the woods near my house. I also read the last 3 chapters in How Learning Works. Glad that's out of the way.

    Hope you all have a great day!

    TY for daily accountability. I’m at my highest weight & pre-diabetic. Uncomfortable when bending forward due extra flab around stomach. Lower back issues emerging. I can’t exercise this off & my metabolism & muscle mass is on the other side of 50. So it’s time to commit to eating clean & managing stress through self-care.

    Welcome!!!! I could have written this myself. Same issues here! We can do this! :)
