    I am registered for the virtual Jingle Bell 5K this weekend to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. I've been walking in a Jingle Bell 5K for years now. Apropos since I've been officially diagnosed. This year there is an "official attempt" to break the Guinness World Records title for the largest remote 5k in 24 hours. Which I realized today means I cannot walk early in the day for my walk to count towards the record. And reading through instructions for app I must use, which is new to me, and steps to submit my time to race event, which are more complicated than I had realized, technology will be my biggest challenge. Also, we will probably get snow on Sat. Wish me luck!

    2020 Goals:
    1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19) 10.31.20 159.0#

    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

    I don't think I've ever done a distanced walk or run
    I've done two 5k swims though as part of my swimming achievements (in a pool, not open water) . With the size of the pool I used I think it was 150 lengths non stop lol

    Good luck!
    Hope you sort the app out!
    And I hope there's no snow to make it easier for you lol! Let us know how you get on :)

      I keep receiving more instructions for tomorrow's virtual Jingle Bell 5K. Dog and I walked my planned route this morning, and I finally nailed an exact 5K route. I've been playing around on the app I must use, seems easy enough, if a few more steps than I'm used to for this event. Everyone must login to the official race route, and we must complete a full 5K for our walk to count towards the record. Snow prediction is maybe 1/2 inch in our area, and windy (which I hate walking in but oh well). I am psyched for this!

        However, what on earth is a rutabaga?

        a. an excellent code word
        b. a root cellar
        c. a vegetable often confused for a parsnip <---

        I think that in the UK they are called Swede turnips or neeps. Like this:

        So hubby and I got to talking that this also pertains to eating. Last nite, out of stress, I ate almost an entire bag of marshmallows. And I didn't even realize I had eaten them. And all nite... I felt sick. Today... I felt not only mad at myself because the weight I worked so hard to lose last year is coming back on (up 12 pounds).. because of my decisions. And today I didn't feel any better because I ate those darn marshmallows. I still went to bed depressed and sad about all the news we had, still went to bed worrying about my son, our daughter, my SIL, etc .. those marshmallows did not help those feeling to go away. So why did I eat them!!

        So something to think about ... the decisions we make today affect how we will feel tomorrow.

        so today, I made good decisions all day. I got in 2 walks to relieve stress. I talked to my daughter. I tried to call my son but no luck... and we have been unable to reach him. Which would lead me to eat .. because he has covid, and I have no idea if he is worse or better. He wrote and said he is better.. but as a mom I want to hear his voice. But ... I went for a walk instead.

        Walking instead is great! And a great way to relieve stress!!

        I've been thinking about you and a podcast I heard with Brene Brown - it might be worth giving it a listen. It's about how stress impacts our bodies and how we need to help it 'complete the cycle'. It's an interview with a couple of women authors. Might be worth a listen! https://brenebrown.com/podcast/brene-with-emily-and-amelia-nagoski-on-burnout-and-how-to-complete-the-stress-cycle/ Towards the end, they go through the list of things than help the body release the stress ... walking is one - but they have some other ideas that might be helpful?

        Hang in there. Our decisions today do effect tomorrow! I've been trying to focus each day on the GOOD thing I feel that happened because of what I did yesterday. I find it easier to stay present in my day and be happy reflecting back rather than trying to bully myself into the right choices based on tomorrow. The more I am grateful for what I did YESTERDAY, the more likely I am to NOT do something bad that day.

        Anyway.. a couple of thoughts? I really am holding you in my thoughts!! You're in tough spots.


        I find this very insightful! I spend so much time looking into and worrying about the future that this is really not something that would come naturally to me. I'm going to try practicing this! Thanks for sharing!

        @mytime6630 I'm also going to write your words on my whiteboard on the fridge to try to help me think twice about opening that door aimlessly... Great insight. I'm praying for you, my friend. You have had a really *kitten* year of stress. Sending you big hugs! xoxo

        I keep receiving more instructions for tomorrow's virtual Jingle Bell 5K. Dog and I walked my planned route this morning, and I finally nailed an exact 5K route. I've been playing around on the app I must use, seems easy enough, if a few more steps than I'm used to for this event. Everyone must login to the official race route, and we must complete a full 5K for our walk to count towards the record. Snow prediction is maybe 1/2 inch in our area, and windy (which I hate walking in but oh well). I am psyched for this!


        How did the 5k go today? It wasn't a very nice looking day to be walking! Gray and cold, windy, snowy. I hope you beat the record!

          Hey JFT Peeps! I finally caught up! I had to read 10 pages to do it! I've missed a lot of things and won't be able to comment on them all, but a few comments:

          @Bex953172 I'm so glad to hear you are in your new home! Yay! Glad to see you posting goals and walking your dog again. Maybe you'll have another goose story for us soon... :lol:

          @mytime6630 I'm so sorry you have so much going on again....or is it "still"? I hope you are taking time to take care of yourself too. (((Joan))) How is your husband? Is he still doing well after treatment?

          @cschmitz110515 You inspired me to sign up for the 50 mile challenge here in town too! I need to get my butt in gear to meet the deadline. It's the first time I've ever officially signed up for anything like that. So thank you for the inspiration!

          Everyone else, I'm cheering you on, sending cyber hugs and saying prayers. I hope to be routinely back now. I'll hop on in the morning to set some goals!

          xoxo

          I am struggling terribly with trying to make goals and keep them. My work days are insane right now, I’ve started early every day this week to try to get my regular work completed and I still can’t keep it caught up. I am going to go in tomorrow to hopefully get a start on payroll for Monday.

          I’ll try again this week but I don’t know if it will happen.

          Haha omg I forgot about that horribke goose. I doubt it though, I live in a more built up area now lol but omg it's so much better. There's something I can do every day if I wanted to. There's hundreds of shops and it's just such a better rlife for my family.
          Still not gone on the walk right at the back of my house. It's something we wanted to do as a family but every weekend it's always raining and freezing and just generally dreary. There's no point in us going for us all to feel horribly cold and wet when we get back. Waiting for a dry weekend at least!

          ___

          I've come off track on my goals again. Think I only missed one day of tablets which is not bad at all but struggling with sleep atm. Well not sleep, but getting up. It doesn't matter how many hours I get I just can't get up in the morning and it's starting to get annoying lol because school runs have become a rush again meaning the dogs not getting his breakfast walk.

          Chilling out today, getting some more stuff rouns the house done. I feel like it's starting to come together a bit. But I'll be setting goals tomorrow I reckon. Nice fresh start to the week

          Happy Sunday evening! Since I swapped days in the conference room with my office-mate for Mon. thought I'd get a jump on JFT goals for tomorrow. Especially since I didn't post any over the weekend.

          JFT M 12/14
          1) X-train before work
          2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (3 floors)
          3) Prelog / net cals zero / 14c water
          4) Work in conference room: sanitize room start of day / save flash drive to G/H drives / AJNH / Facebook Live 12:00 / schedule laptop set-up w/ IT / sanitize room end of day
          5) Read Luke 14 & Advent booklet / water tree (a.m. & p.m.) / dust living room / decorate tree / put up rest of Xmas decorations / wash dishes / prep lunch, snacks, water bottle & overnight oats
          6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

          Weekend was quite busy with house-cleaning (some areas much needed & took more time than I wanted, but hubby & I did most together so that was nice), church, holiday prep, shopping & getting our "real" Christmas tree. Just have lights on so far, no time for ornaments at this point. Oh, and the Jingle Bell 5K. LOL

          My fear of the new app we needed to use for the 5K was justified. Even though the app was using GPS, it didn't register several of my turns nor a curving road we followed, and under-counted the distance. Since this year there is an "official attempt" to break the Guinness World Records title for the largest remote 5k in 24 hours, I HAD to register 5K in the app. So dog and I kept walking until the app finally registered the distance as 5K. At least the snow was just a dusting and I was dressed to cope with the cold & windy conditions.

          I used my normal walking app later to create our actual route & calculate the true distance: We walked 3.86 miles instead! I tried the new app again today and even worse, it cut the second half of our walk off, and routed me straight home, across a state highway and through yards. Later I read some recent app reviews, and they weren't good. What a shock.

          At least I got to count more distance for the 50 Mile Frenzy. LOL @PackerFanInGB YAY! So happy you are doing this event too. Since you started the event late, you could cut the distance in half or so. No matter what, it's better than sitting on the couch.

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

          01/13 = 157.0 big surprise! Yesterday evening, walked in Frenzy on the Fox 5K in 47:26 & pace 15:19. Very happy with my time, wore layers of clothes in 10 degrees & NNW 12 mph wind, fun event.
          01/20 = 156.5
          01/27 = 156.5 maintaining / not a bad thing
          02/03 = sick / no weigh in
          02/10 = 152.5 unhealthy loss due to illness / I know weight will go back up & I'm totally fine with that
          02/17/18 = 153.0 thrilled with annual physical on 2/15/18: BP 110/68, pulse 64 and BMI 26.14 :star:
          02/24 = 154.0 little out of control last week, but at goal for the month

          04/07 = 154.5 ack ~ ate Easter candy most evenings
          04/14 = 153.5 Day 1 of record-setting blizzard ~ yuck! Followed by day 2 of blizzard, then snow day (no work / still shoveling & plowing) on Monday ~ in APRIL ~ yikes! :p

          04/28 = 152.0
          05/05 = 153.5 kinda stalled three months + feeling hungry more often ~ since w/i 10# of goal, changed MFP setting to lose 1/2 lb. per week & see how it goes
          05/12 = 153.5 ok with this ~ think changing my MFP setting, and having more net calories to play with, is agreeing with me ~ I'm not so hungry all the time
