    JFT, Sunday
    1. log all food
    2. concentrate on drinking water -- aim for 8+ cups
    3.watch inner thoughts ... I CAN get this weight off and feel better.
    4. apple in the evening .. and water
    5. plan meals for the week ... and stick to them
    6. light lunches. When I eat breakfast so late, which we do because I walk 6 miles in the morning, I do not need a large lunch. This was how I lost before ... do it again
    7. get back on here. Be accountable

    Today is another very gloomy day, so I may not get my walk in. I see how much better I feel and do when I am able to get out walking, so I miss it when I can't.
    I am going to attempt to go to the store this week... going an hour before the store closes in hopes that there are not many people there. I have not been anywhere for 4 weeks .. except for my walks.. and really want to pick up a small turkey.
    My husband still is not allowing our daughter in our house, so I am doing whatever I can to make this as nice of a thanksgiving as I can. She will still come out, and hopefully the weather will be nice so we can atleast visit outside,and I will give her some food to take home. Maybe eat a piece of pie outside with her. Right now, weather is suppose to be in the mid 50s.
    I am going to see if I can make her a little gift basket with coffee makings, a book, candle. This has been hard for her, and me as well. But since she works in nursing homes, and covid cases are so high, hubby does not want to take chances.

    @mytime6630 My heart breaks everytime I read about your daughter. I'm so sorry that this has been affecting you so hard. I hope the weather clears up so that you can go for your walk. And good job losing that weight!

    I had a pretty good weekend, but now it's Monday again urgh. I'm so tired and haven't any oomph to get going. I think it's because I don't actually want to do the stuff on my list. I have to go into town to do some financial stuff for my mother, so that will take up a few hours. Then I have to speak to the doctor for her, and report back, another couple of hours. So many days I don't manage to do my own stuff as I run out of time. Sorry I sound so grumpy, I'm just tired.

    I also feel old! I thought I was well past caring what other people thought about how I looked, but apparently not. Last week I was told of 2 really hurtful comments about how old I looked, normally I would just dismiss them but it's feeding into my anxiety about my upcoming birthday and how fast life passes by. Combined with trying to help my parents cope with ill health and old age, it scares me about how fast life is going and what's in the future. Best reason ever to be fit and healthy!

    So JFT I will eat healthily, I will walk (into town, no choice with pedestrian precinct!) and I will be patient.

    Another great day and it was a great week in total. Down 5.6# for the week. In perspective, down 3.8# for the month. 200 calories a day makes a huge difference.

    For Sunday, don’t celebrate my streak with food. I haven’t arrived. Keep my focus.

    2000 calories. Finish the week at a 1900 average: 1729 and didn’t deprive myself. 1827 average for the week was my best average in 10 weeks
    Work out for a honest 100 minutes. Finish the week at a 60 minute daily average: Made it happen. 100 minutes and finished the week at 60 minutes a day. Walked for 3.14 miles on Sunday, 14.36 miles, 2560#, 340 crunches, 84 push ups and 160 lunges for the week.
    Make good choices: Made them all day
    Support my bride: one bump in the day where I got selfish but we ended up in a great place
    Eat dinner at the table and stroll afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t eat on the couch: Done, done and done. Knowing I had to self report today made it happen
    Train the dog, head into Monday with a clean inbox and identify the parts for two home repair projects: Trained the puppy. Didn’t make progress on the home repair.

    For Monday, keep going. I have not arrived.

    1800 calories. Average 2000 for the week:

    JFT M 11/23
    1) Walked dog 3.82 mi before work :smiley: happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
    3) Prelog / net cals zero / 14c water
    4) Work in office: 12:00 Facebook Live / AJNH / keep up w/ email

    6) UNPLUG 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

    I'm excited about upcoming "race" events, even if they are virtual or the "home edition" in 2020-21. (One annual 5K I always walk in Feb. has already been canceled for 2021.) This week I will participate in my first ever Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day. Hubby and I won't be driving 2.5 hours one way for family time at my sister's house. Instead we will be staying home, and I have pre-ordered Thanksgiving dinner from local grocery store. All I have to do is heat stuff up. I like that bc I don't want to spend holiday at home cooking all day.

    Yesterday I registered for the 50 Mile Frenzy, which replaces the annual Frenzy on the Fox 5K/10K in early January. The goal is to run or walk 50 miles from Nov. 27 - Jan. 15. Other workouts count too, in 15-minute increments. A good fitness challenge as winter sets in. I'm hoping I can mostly walk dog & snow/ice won't force me to the basement treadmill. But who am I kidding? I live in WI.

    2020 Goals:
    1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19) YAY 10.31.20 159.0#
    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 / forgot 10.31.20 measurements but happy w/ w-i 159.0 finally below 160
    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 on 1.10.20 / Seroogy's Valentine 5K 46:26.7 ave. pace 14:47 on 2.8.20 / Badger State Brewing 10K virtual race on 4.2.20 w/ dog 1:44:16 ave. pace 16:33 / Prevention virtual 5K Fun & Fit Team on 5.2.20 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 on 6.6.20 w/ dog 1:41:03 ave. pace 16:14 dog definitely slows my "race pace" / Hope Isn't Canceled virtual 10K on 8.29.20 w/ dog 1:43:10 ave. pace 16:36 / Packers 5K virtual race 9.26.20 w/ dog 52:23 ave. pace 16:41 / Bellin Women's 5K virtual race 10.10.20 w/ dog 52:55 ave. pace 16:57 / virtual Run for the Hill of It 5K on 10.16.20 w/ dog 50:35 ave. pace 16:16
    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)
    9) Declutter home office, bedroom and basement = basement (boxes) Jan. / home office desk (some) & more basement boxes Feb. / basement boxes & home office (some more) Mar. / decluttered/cleaned in bedroom & more basement boxes Apr. / basement boxes May ~ very pleased w/ my progress / reorg in basement June & July / small declutter projects around house October

    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

    1 Get back on that horse you fell off this weekend!
    2 Get 10,000 steps minimum
    3 Clear desk
    4 Set menu and shopping list for week/weekend.

    I flopped hard this weekend... not terrible on the diet but terrible on the focus or having a care to give about it. Starting to pull out of it today - in enough time to try to focus for the last part of this week!

    @mytime6630 - I am so sorry you are stuck in the middle between your husband and daughter, I don't know if I would be handling the situation as gracefully as you are.

    @littleblackskirt - I think caring for ill parents makes us age fast. I sure felt it and looked it when my Dad was sick. Truthfully, this stressful year is aging people fast I think too. Don't let the negative comments derail you, I hope the comments made were from a point of caring and not nastiness.

    @acrylicfox - I don't know how you do the no grain, no dairy. I would literally starve as I'm such a fussy eater.

    @HEGoddard0928 - I hope you have a great first day and the job is everything you want it to be.

    @cschmitz110515 - Ordering Thanksgiving dinner in from the grocery store is a brilliant idea. One year, we were having a stressful year and went out to a restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner.

    I had a great weekend with our Grand-puppy, now it's back to work for another stressful week.

    Have a great day everyone.

    @acrylicfox - I don't know how you do the no grain, no dairy. I would literally starve as I'm such a fussy eater.

    To be honest, I struggle with it as I love grains and dairy so much that sometimes after eating (with an asthma puffer in one hand and clutching my tummy with the other) I find myself panting "Worth it!" :joy:

    @Snowflake1968 sadly the "old" comments were not caring, they were just nasty and rude (and from a guy who is no spring chicken himself!)

    So JFT I will eat healthily, I will walk (into town, no choice with pedestrian precinct!) and I will be patient.

    I did walk, I was patient (outwardly anyway!), not sure about the eating, ate a larger than usual meal but then missed one later.

    The banking in town took ages, one bank we had to queue outside in the rain. I queued for 25 minutes, my back does not cope with standing still, the osteopath suggested just sitting down in queues but I draw the line at sitting on the ground in the centre of town in the rain :)

    JFT Tuesday
    I will eat healthily, fruit and veg
    I will do what I need to without grumping

    Just discovered my flat roof is leaking ugh.
