    Good day and a solid week. Down 2.4# for the week

    For Sunday, finish the week strong. Do the things I’m supposed to do.

    1900 calories: 1990 for the day, 1826 average for the week
    Work out for 80 minutes: 83 minutes for Sunday including a 2.52 mile walk. 2020 high points for hours with 8:56, for miles with 17.44, crunches with 360 and push ups with 102.
    Make good choices and revisit my goals mid day: Made good choices and even though I went over calories a bit on Sunday, I was under for the week.
    Support my bride: She always supports me but I can do better. Let the little things go on by
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged: Snacked dinner on the couch but stopped myself from going overboard. Slow .5 walk after dinner with my bride. I’m happy to go at her pace, this isn’t exercise time[/quote]

    For Monday, there are things I want to achieve for my long term health and well -being. There are actions I have to take and actions I have to avoid in order to achieve those goals.

    1900 calories:
    Work out for 80 minutes:

    @littleblackskirt (((hugs)))

    @teigansdad You can do this!

    JFT M 10/5 ~ work at office
    1) Walked dog 3.53 mi :smiley: happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
    3) Net cals zero / 14c water
    4) AJNH MRN folders / Facebook Live 12:00 / catch up email backlog / email new DL info to HRD

    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / 6:30 alarm (rest day since late game)

    Shopping together on Sat. hubby wanted french onion dip & chips for himself. No problem. I made the mistake of buying kettle chips (a fav of mine) and pickle/ranch dip for myself. Oops. That, plus homemade ice cream from a favorite local restaurant in our carry out order this weekend spelled doom for my food log. Oh well, onward! Planned suppers include fresh trout and broccoli bisque, then leftovers. I'll forget about chips/dip & ice cream the rest of this week, and keep up with dog walks, maybe even x-train.

    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" / Hope Isn't Canceled virtual 10K w/ dog 8/29/20 1:43:10 ave. pace 16:36 / Packers 5K virtual race w/ dog 9/26/20 52:23 ave. pace 16:41
    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)

      Hey guys!

      I spent the weekend at a Christian Woman's Conference and got to finally meet my best friend in real life! It was a blast and I got SOOO much out of it! But I came back tired and sore from all the walking. Lol.

      I went to bed late last night because I was up spending time with Matt and talking. So I actually got up later than I had been but fell asleep on the couch and when I finally woke up I only had 8 minutes to get to work instead of having an extra hour to get there.
      School starts an hour earlier now because they are bringing half of the district students into hybrid this month and the other half are starting next month. Very annoying. Thank God I didn't need to pack a lunch or take a shower since I took one the night before. I ended up only getting there 5 minutes late.

      I'm going to post some goals now I think as opposed to wanting to sign on early in the morning and not doing it.

      JFT, 10/6/20

      - Up at 5
      - work 7-11:15
      - doc appt 1:15
      - Aldi
      - food in the crockpot
      - pull the chicken from the freezer
      - call F re Sunday message

      I think that's it.

      Had a fairly good day yesterday, I went slightly over on my calories but didn't have any alcohol and had a decent amount of sleep so felt able to go for a run this morning. I actually feel quite fresh! (For now...)
      - Track all food and drink :)
      - Be in the green :|Allowed myself some chocolate which took me 150 over, better than previous days though!
      - Stay positive :)
      - Read emails at intervals only :/It's really hard to remember to do this. I've decide to rephrase this to 'turn emails off when I have finished with them'. I feel like that might work better.
      - Go for run >:)It was just really dark and depressing when I finished work so really didn't want to. We went this morning though and saw nice sunrise light.
      - Keep catching up on emails :)
      - Talk to boyfriend in French :)
      - Make lunches :)
      - Do monthly resolutions :)
      - Lights off by 11 :)

      Today's goals:

      - Track all food and drink
      - Be in the green
      - 5 fruit & veg
      - No alcohol

      - Switch emails off when finished reading
      - Stay positive

      - Go for walk at least once
      - Go to opticians to get glasses adjusted
      - Talk to boyfriend in French
      - Get stuff ordered (dubbin, car phone holder, high viz jacket for boyfriend)
      - Laundry
      - Watch bake off!
      - Catch up on French book
      - Lights off by 11

      @bookmeister86 I'm with you on getting up early and out in the dark. It's so hard! When I do, I wear a reflective vest (my LED vest shorted out), high vis hat & LED headlamp. Dog wears a blaze (hunter's) orange vest with reflective stripes & LED collar. Since we have few to no sidewalks in our area, we walk on side of the road, and I want drivers to see us. I know we're visible, because people have commented to me. When the sky is clear I enjoy looking at the seasonal constellations, listening to the birds (no earbuds for me on walks), and watching the sunrise. Best part, besides happy dog: getting my workout done at the beginning of the day! I love knowing what my exercise calories are.

      Recap M 10/5 ~ work at office
      1) Walked dog 3.53 mi :smiley: happy dog & happy me
      2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors) :smiley: 14/14 boom!
      3) Net cals zero / 14c water :s baked trout & roasted brussels sprouts, but finished up potato salad (mistake ~ high in cals) & overtired, snacked on peanut M&Ms >:) net cals RED & 10c

      5) Schwan's delivery / wash dishes felt exhausted / Packers game 7:50 (I hate evening games before workdays, even worse when they schedule late start) / at least one other (minor) chore? :) 3/4
      6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / 6:30 alarm (rest day since late game) in bed early to watch game, fell asleep instead :mrgreen: 4/4

      JFT T 10/6 ~ work at office & rest day (late NFL game night before)
      1) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
      2) Net cals zero / 14c water

      4) Wash dishes / at least one other chore, no matter how minor
      5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

      2020 Goals:
      1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19)

      @ZizzyBumble what a breathtaking view! Do you mind if I ask where that is?

      Hi, I’m on the Isle of Skye (Scotland). My house is a bit further back up the road so this is pretty much the view I wake up to (weather permitting as there are some days when you can’t see much for rain!)
