    Solid day and down 1# for the month. Happy I put in the work to stay neutral despite a high calorie month

    For Monday, it’s a full day of meetings.

    1900 calories, avoid a 2020 monthly high average: 1923 for the day and a 2303 average for the month. Second highest month of the year
    Work out for 40 minutes: 40 on the nose. 29:28 for the month including 55.84 miles of purposeful walks
    Make good decisions: Ate kisses and due to a caught error was over by 23 calories. Solid beyond that
    Support my bride: Easy to do. It’s important that she knows she has an impact on my health and decisions. I’m not easy to manage
    Eat at the table, unplugged: Done
    Don’t eat on the couch: Done

    For Tuesday, be mindful. Full day of meetings.

    1900 calories:
    No workout commitment:
    Make good choices:
    Support my bride:
    Don’t eat on the couch:

    Ultimate goal: 175, and maintain

    1st goal weight: 185
    2nd goal weight: 180

    Nov 11: 192.6
    Nov 13: 189.4 -- yah, finally back in the 180s
    Nov 15: 188.8
    Dec 1: 192.6 --- make xmas cookies, plus leftover thanksgiving pies, etc. Time to get back on track!

    I'm just posting simple goals today ... a very busy day again.
    My son now also has covid .. he is very sick, with a very high fever, headaches, and severe fatigue. So naturally I am so worried about him.. especially being so far away, and not having seen him in a year! Then... yesterday our daughter was out running and fell again. Banged up her knee and her hand is very swollen. I told her to put ice on .. to try and avoid urgent care since those places are packed with covid.
    It is 26 degrees this morning. With not letting our daughter in our house, this makes it so hard .. because she still comes out. She just needs to see us. So I hate it ... and last nite, I gave into the comfort I know .. food. Which does not good .. only makes us feel worse. I baked pies for thanksgiving ... and sent several pieces to our daughter and to a neighbor .. but still had leftovers here. Then over the weekend baked and decorated sugar cookies to send to our son and give some to our daughter. But ... still ate too many (reflectdd in my weight this morning!)

    So today is a new day .. Tuesday, Dec 1. Going to try and stay on track for this month.

    ANd @Bex ... remember ... you are going to start setting goals this month also!! Even just very simple ones!

    JFT, Tues, Dec1
    1. log all food
    2. mindful eating
    3. concentrate on water
    4. in evening... sew... or watch youtube videos. try not to worry and eat

    Ha, I forgot about my goals.
    I'm just so tired though but you're right, I gotta do something even if it's simple

    Im happy to report that apart from the first 2 days I have walked the dog ayleast once daily :) which I think is pretty good! 7.15 on the dot every morning when the kids are having breakfast.

    Tonight I need to locate all my medication from whatever bag they're in and take them regularly

    @mytime6630 Just wanted to send you hugs. This sounds sooo rough. Remember it's ok to worry - just don't spiral. We have to feel our feelings or they come out as even more stress on our bodies. Maybe a constructive way to channel the worry! Simple goals are good!!

    Hang in there! I'll be thinking of you guys! So hard!

    That is a great goal @Bex ... keep doing it!! I'm sure the dog is happy, and I know for me, even if just a short time .. the sunshine and fresh air helps me. And another great goal you have .. finding and taking your medication... I know you'll feel better!

    So far we have not heard if our grandsons or anyone else caught covid... but they were all with my son, so my guess they may all get it. Our son travels a lot.. so not a surprise that he caught it. I think eventually we are all going to get this though .. just hoping to be one that does not have it serious.
    you hang in there .. I'm sure your busy with unpacking, but so happy you have a new home for the holidays!

    Haha I'm already unpacked!
    But I have zero storage, no wardrobes, drawers, nothing. Even the kids are on mattresses on the floor (need a bunk bed) and even me and Ash, we bought a new mattress 10 days ago and it's still not arrived (they had a pleasant phone all this morning lmao) so we've set up our bed frame and we're sleeping on an airbed on the frame haha.. I can honestly say my back, neck and shoulders hate me so much right now haha

    But in a couple of weeks I'm sure I'll have everything I need. Already found bunk bed for 50 quid and the neighbours moving out and there's some drawers in there that my dad said we can have (he owns the house for rentals)

    It's getting chilly here now. But I hate the cold anyway, I feel the cold terribly. When my feet get cold and I don't get some slippers on or something (I don't like wearing socks lol) the cold creeps up my legs into my shins and at that point it's just painful.
    I've had sore shins all day from walking in the cold lol


    Apparently the UK is rolling out this vaccine soon, possibly tomorrow. But I have no idea if that means they then share it with the world? I don't know how it works when one country gets the first vaccine, do they make enough for everyone or just the UK first then start shipping it out to others? I have no idea lol

    But even then they said it would take 'til March til things are nearly normal again

      End of November: 192.6
      Today: 191.2

      Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
      1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
      2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
      3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
      4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
      5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
      6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning. ObG schedule for October. When is re-up with ortho? Schedule PCP for same day.
      7. Theater: Podcast. Youtube.
      8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
      9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
      10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
      11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
      12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story.
      13. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Therapy exercises: squats, push-ups, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

      WFTY: Progress. I went to bed early and I'm STILL tired.

      I think peanut butter M&Ms need to be regulated by the FDA. Seriously!!! I think I’m a M&M junky. On a good note I plowed thru the rest of the bag yesterday so If I stay away from candy isle I should be ok... my wife still has a big bag of peanut M&Ms.. they don’t have the same power over me... but who knows maybe I still have a therapeutic level of M&Ms circulating their my blood from last night and this afternoon the peanut M&Ms will call to me or perhaps I’ll fins the old package peanut butter ones came from and lick the inside ? 🤢
      Kidding... I hope

      Ok enough rambling

On a good note I plowed thru the rest of the bag yesterday so If I stay away from candy isle I should be ok... my wife still has a big bag of peanut M&Ms.. they don’t have the same power over me... but who knows maybe I still have a therapeutic level of M&Ms circulating their my blood from last night and this afternoon the peanut M&Ms will call to me or perhaps I’ll fins the old package peanut butter ones came from and lick the inside ? 🤢
      Kidding... I hope

      Ok enough rambling
