    @Snowflake1968 I'm really sorry your nursing home has a case of Covid. I hope it can be contained and that you stay healthy.

    JFT Wednesday 18th Nov

    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green no, really didn't
    Do some back exercises yes
    Walk? Weather is horrendous right now no
    Mother's weekly shop yes
    Admin yes
    3 long phone calls for mother, will set aside an hour for them. I hate making phone calls. yes, calls and admin took up about 3 hours!
    Housework yes

    I seem to have missed a day. Yesterday was just busy, and I also was lucky enough to walk with a friend, and we went to a cafe for lunch. First time this year, almost felt normal (apart from wearing a mask!)

    JFT Friday 20th Nov

    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Do some back exercises
    Walk, raining again
    Mother's banking/shopping
    admin, my own for a change
    Housework

    Finding it hard to make the best food choices this week, I have left overs and food going out of date that should be eaten. I'm not going to waste it but sometimes it means more calories than I hoped for. It's the usual story of shopping for food when you live alone, and the larger package sizes are relatively cheaper than the small sizes. Or sometimes there are no smaller sizes, only large. I'm good at batch cooking and freezing, but sometimes I don't get it quite right.

      Covid-19
      Crazy situation here. Our 4 week circuit breaker lockdown ended today. However, we go back into harder lockdown next Friday for at least 2 weeks as cases/deaths are still rising in Northern Ireland. So, of course, people will go bananas for the next week. The 4 weeks did not have the hoped for effect, because too many people are not taking the situation seriously enough.

      Work out for 85 minutes and work toward my weekly average of 69 minutes a day: 51 minute, 2.84 mile exercise walk. Didn’t work out. Average of 35 minutes a day.
      Make good choices: Great day until the ice cream bar but didn’t keep going. I’ll take it
      Support my bride:Easy to do
      Eat dinner at the table and stroll afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t eat on the couch: Done, done and partially done. Took a business call at the dinner table


      For Friday, make ground on my exercise minutes.

      Log everything everything except biscuits in the evening
      Stay in the green no, biscuits put me over
      Do some back exercises yes
      Walk, raining again yes, got soaked by a lorry going through a puddle!
      Mother's banking/shopping yes, done
      admin, my own for a change yes
      Housework some

      I'm not going to log today. I woke really early and instead of getting up I fell back asleep and now I'm really tired. Now that my holiday let has been closed down I have "free" Saturdays, so I thought I'd treat my house to a professional clean today. I'll strip the bed (and Mum's bed) clean the bathroom and kitchen, and do little repair jobs. It will be nicer than work as I'll have time for tea breaks lol.

      Hope you all have a good weekend :)
