    @bookmeister86 - If I need to eat something to hit my calorie target, i try to make sure it’s something with nutritional value. I always have yogurt, hard boiled eggs and energy bites in my fridge. I find a hard boiled egg with the everything bagel seasoning so satisfying. There’s all different types of energy bites, but I’ll get the link to the recipe I use. They come out to around 100 calories each. They are so tasty. Perfect if you’re on the go and need a quick bite or if you want something sweet at the end of the day.

    https://www.gimmesomeoven.com/no-bake-energy-bites/


    JFT MONDAY:
    - clean toy riding car🟢
    - Exercise (even if it’s just a mile...do something!)🔴
    - organize music🔴
    - Virtual chorus meeting🟢
    - S to soccer🟢
    - pick up school supplies🟢
    - Indoor chores (laundry catch-up day)🟢
    - Paint shed🔴

    It’s going to rain all day. I already know I’m going to be so bored. I’ve been stuck in the house so much with virtual learning it’s not helping with my crappy eating lately. 😕

    JFT TUESDAY:
    - No chips!
    - Exercise😈
    - Pick up costume
    - Organize music
    - E to soccer
    - Meal plan / food prep

    Good day though went over calories

    For Monday, keep my focus. I’m closing in on a weight loss milestone that has derailed me in my prior two weight loss journeys. I come close to the mark and revert to old habits.

    1900 calories: 2214
    Work out for 80 minutes: 86 minutes including a 2.62 mile walk
    Make good choices: Worked out and walked. Made good food choices but didn’t plan well enough for a higher calorie dinner but didn’t make the count worse
    Support my bride: Easy to do. She has always been my biggest fan and supports me no matter what
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards. Both unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch: Done, done and done. Going to be dark for our evening stroll soon. Enjoying the fall colors

    For Tuesday keep my focus. I am 9 months into a long journey.

    1800 calories:
    Work out for 80 minutes:
    Make good choices:
    Support my bride:
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch:

    Monday goals
    Stay green✅
    No beer✅
    No sweets❌
    Fruit and vegetables for snacks✅
    Zwift ride... do the Zwift academy if get home from work at decent hour✅

    Solid day yesterday
    @Snowflake1968 It is crazy. My co-worker feels terrible but I think he will be fine. He’s in early 50s and still does triathlons so he’s got decent health on his side.. But he wasn’t asymptomatic that’s for sure.

    Just read in medical journal There have been 2 confirmed re-infection cases in the US. They verified it by comparing the virus and noted mutation. It’s to early to know what this means except it makes vaccine development and efficacy a little more uncertain.

    Sorry for the rambling

    Goals for today (Tuesday)
    Stay green
    No beer
    No sweets
    Pick up fruit on way home from work
    Group ride on Zwift
    Walk dog

    @bookmeister86 - I think writing your thoughts down help a lot, I used to write letters to myself when I was upset or trying to work out a problem and it always helped me.
    As for snacks, we have a little cracker here called Cheese Nips, they are 18 for 90 calories and remind me of chips. I don't know if you have them over there or not. Chips are my go to for snacks, so salty and crispy satisfies me.

    @teigansdad - That is scary about the the 2 confirmed re-infection cases. I had heard back at the beginning of this that they have never found a vaccine for any Coronavirus due to the way it mutates. I don't know if that's a true fact or not, but I haven't forgotten it. I hope that isn't the case.

    I am at work and need to get at it as yesterday was a holiday and I am off on Friday, it's a short week for me.

    Thinking of some missing people again, @PackerFanInGB , @Bex953172, @AJB1014 @littleblackskirt , @maryrobinson40 hope you are all doing well.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Back to JFT but at work & no time read JFT right now. I'll read posts later. Wishing everyone a great day!

    JFT T 10/13 ~ work in office
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
    2) Net cals zero / 14c water
    3) NHC to-do list / GA-IT write-ups / Facebook Live video / catch up some email backlog / save electronics to G or H drives
    4) Write TY for bday gift / wash dishes / one more chore
    5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS

    Decided I'm taking a few consecutive rest days since have a nagging (minor) injury. Sad dog. I did a lot of fall chores outside Sun. & Mon. so still was active.

    Sat. was my birthday, so I took the day off from MFP. Splurged with hubby on special takeout for dinner, including appetizer & dessert. Then I took a long weekend since hubby had the federal holiday off, we cont'd eating takeout leftovers, and no logging again. I enjoyed! Back to MFP and logging today.

    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) / 6.30.20 / 8.6.20 (forgot July 31 & crazy schedule) / 8.31.20 / 9.30.20

    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 63, 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

    11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.

    08/05 = 174.5 dined out for Girls Day Out & ate Dad's cooking & baking

    08/19 = 173.5 had couple of high calorie days
    08/26 = 172.0 kind of a surprise

    11/04 = 163.0 wow, really surprised at this, daily fluctuations very up and down this week

    @SERmom3 and @Snowflake1968 The kitchen feels as if it will be a long term project! I doubt it’s going to happen before Christmas as it takes so long to get everything organised. I’m also mindful the Covid may add extra delays. The current kitchen is fine but I didn’t really like it when we bought the house. I don’t like the colours and it does not make good use of the available space - there’s a large storage area that can only be accessed by moving a heavy microwave and lifting part of the worktop. The new design will have a rolling island to allow easy access to the storage area.

    @AJB1014 I thought I replied earlier but can’t seem to find it. This is our second child and she just turned a month old a few days ago. Our oldest is 16 months old. Congrats on your baby!

      Today was challenging again, I'm really struggling with motivation and positivity at the moment, particularly as regards work. Not quite sure what to do about it yet. I'm reading a book on positive thinking which is giving me some ideas but haven't yet cracked it. One of the things I have read is that if you are not having enough fun and enjoyment in your life, it's unlikely you're going to be thinking positively about things. That's fairly obvious I guess but it makes me feel a bit better as let's face it, most of us are not having that much fun at the moment so in that sense it's perhaps not surprising - and therefore I shouldn't feel bad about - not managing to be positive much of the time.

      It did make me think though that I need to make having fun and enjoyment more of a priority. There are obvious challenges to that with covid restrictions and everything. But I can probably get more fun and enjoyment than I currently am doing. I need to make more effort to get out and do some things. I've also had an idea about taking up photography. I've always quite liked taking photos, maybe it's worth making that a hobby? There are so many beautiful things to look at the moment, I think I would enjoy that. I'm also going to have a look to see if I can find any local 'meet ups' to get involved with - again there will be restrictions on those but there may be some small groups, maybe that do outsidey things, that I could get involved with. I think lack of social interaction is starting to, to put it bluntly, 'do my nut in', so I need to do something about that.

      Anyway, onto goals!

      Yesterday's goals:
      - Track all food and drink :)
      - Be in the green >:)
      - 5 fruit & veg :)
      - No alcohol >:)Realistically, I'm not going to avoid alcohol when I have calls with my friends, at least not at the moment. Let's start with the days where I don't have social calls...

      - Switch emails off when finished reading >:)
      - Stay positive >:)

      - Ring about check-up >:)Was just too busy yesterday
      - Get out for a walk :)
      - Sort recipes & create meal ideas spread sheet :)

      - Finish day with reflection/ journaling/ problem solving :)
      - Get into evening mode with walking or stretching :)

      - Talk to boyfriend in French >:)
      - Read a little of French book >:)
      - Lights off by 11 >:)Call with friends finished late and needed a bit of wind down time


      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

      - Get out for a walk (and take a photo!)
      - Start writing list of possible hobbies/ fun activities/ meet ups
      - Finish day with reflection/ journaling/ problem solving
      - Get into evening mode with walking or stretching

      - Talk to boyfriend in French
      - Read a little of French book
      - Watch bake off
      - Lights off by 11

      Thanks to @Snowflake1968 and @SERmom3 for the snack suggestions! I may try eggs in the first instance as we have lots in at the moment but I will also look out for cheese nips and take a look at that recipe, it looks easy so sure I can manage it!
