    Things feel so surreal this year. Normally I would be in full Christmas schedule mode, but not this year.
    Focus is wavering slightly. We are hoping for good weather tomorrow as family are trying to get together for a walk to exchange presents. If it's wet we will meet in our garage, which has doors at each end. My girls don't want to put us at risk, as our numbers are rising again. There are now strict guidelines in force, so we are doing virtual Christmas Day dinner, and present opening.

    DH has a dental appointment this morning for a root canal filling, and I have to finish wrapping presents.

    Courage, my little chickadees!
    We've all got to do it to get through it!

      Weigh 😊 Happy Scale weight trend ↔️ Nothing lost in 7 last days.

      I need concentrate on drinking water, recently I keep missing this easy goal 👿. I’ve reset my Fitbit to calculate maintenance calories to give me more chance of being in the green over the festive period and I’m sure my weight will go up a bit.

      @bex95123 Thank for the tip, I will try filling my bottle and keeping it with me. One reason for not drinking is that I’ve not been doing my exercise so not feeling as thirsty.

      Weigh 😊 Happy Scale weight trend ⬇️ 0.8 kg lost in the last 7 days. The scales are really bouncing around at the moment and the trend is for a very slow loss. I’m now only 1 kg from my goal so I know it’s going to be up and down especially with the festive goodies and a feeling that I deserve treats!

      Another gray, cloudy, dreary day. Small rain showers & feels damp. Mild temps for this time of year at 46F (7.8C) but a bit breezy. Weather is supposed to turn much colder tonight & tomorrow, much more seasonal. If wet pavement doesn't freeze, I can layer up and still walk dog outside since no danger of slip and falls. Sure beats the basement treadmill. And at least when I'm home I can turn lights on on both Christmas trees & enjoy. That always cheers me up.

      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 / home edition Turkey Trot 2 mile walk w/ dog 11.26.20 in 36:54 / Jingle Bell world record attempt for largest virtual 5K w/ stupid RunGo app = walked 3.86 mi 56:48(?) w/ dog 12.12.20

      Well done to everyone who's managed to keep eating well. I'm afraid I've fallen off the wagon a bit. Will climb back on again soon though! I have kept walking almost every day though.

      Wishing you all a happy and peaceful Christmas. Keep safe everyone.

      Wishing all my JFT friends a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! May you have a blessed day, and stay safe and healthy!

      Recap W 12/23 ~ vacation day at home
      1) Walked dog 4.17 mi :smiley: happy dog & happy me
      2) Move hourly :) 12/14 & 16.6k
      3) Eat up leftovers & log meals & snacks / net cals zero / 14c water :) green 5 & 10c not sure if I logged correctly
      4) Read Luke 23 & Advent booklet / water tree (a.m. & p.m.) / wrap hubby's gifts (maybe even what I already have for his bday in Jan.) / drain cleaner in upstairs bathroom / wash dishes / complete charity donations / pay property tax online / prep niece's bday card / at least 1 other chore ~ yes = 8/9
      5) UNPLUG 9:00 :/ yes except video of Advent service / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / no alarm for vacation/holiday (workout) = 4/5

      JFT Christmas Eve 12/24 ~ work holiday/vacation
      1) X-train in basement / move hourly
      2) More leftovers & log / net cals zero / 14c water
      3) Bake cake & frost / make salad / bank for bday card cash / pick up bread order / mail niece's bday card / prep pots & pans for tomorrow's dinner / pay property tax online (maybe, not due until 12/31) / water tree (a.m. & p.m.)
      4) Read Luke 24 & Advent booklet / Christmas Eve service 10 p.m. with hubby
      5) UNPLUG 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / 8:30 alarm (church 10 a.m.)

      I am excited that hubby was told to report to work early today. That means he comes home mid-evening, instead of after midnight. We will be able to attend the last candlelight service at church together!

      Weather turned quickly yesterday evening. A strong wind gust whipped our outer front door open & tore the spring closer from the door frame. Dog was trembling (she has developed great fear of windy conditions). Snow flurries fell through night, and wind chill temp now -1F (-18.3C). Not even an inch of snow fell, but I'm worried there's some ice beneath. With that & temps, worried about slip & falls if I walk dog. Decided it's a good day to x-train in basement. Tomorrow will be a rest day, unless I feel ambitious and maybe walk dog around neighborhood to look at Christmas lights.

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

      Just a quick note to wish you all a very happy and blessed holiday season! This has been a very hard and trying year for almost all of us with covid, quarantine, etc. But ... we all hung in there!

      Our Christmas will be spent in our garage ... in 30 degree weather. While it is not ideal, it is something that hubby is comfortable with. I have 3 chairs out there, a couple rugs thrown down, a little christmas tree, and we will bring out a heater, and close the garage door halfway. But ... we will be together, and we are all safe and healthy yet.

      My goals for the next few days are to just try and enjoy the holidays, don't over eat ... small portions... practice moderation (meaning don't eat 6 cinnamon rolls!), and count my many blessings.

      Tell you what I'm so glad that I got all-but-one wash done today. Until Saskia decided it was a good idea to lean on the washing machine door and snap it off.. Again!(sorry @PackerFanInGB) Have you ever been so angry you can't even tell them off. It's Christmas, we had to suck it up and just attempt a fix, *touchwood* it works.

      However, on a positive note..

      I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, I hope you all manage to contact your loved ones to wish them well even though you can't see them in person.

      And remember it's the one day of the year you can stuff your faaaaace! 😉 So enjoy, indulge and have a great day everyone!!

      Christmas Eve

      Sending Christmas wishes to you all and thinking of those who have lost loved ones. 🐝

      I’ve no idea what planet I was on when I wrote today’s goals. We have a tradition of pizza for dinner Christmas Eve and I made Sherry trifle in honour of my late mum - she always wanted to eat the trifle as soon as it was ready but my childhood Christmases were spent with my maternal grandmother who had a strict plan as to when things could be eaten and trifle was for supper on Christmas Day. I swear mum would have happily had it for breakfast Christmas Day given a chance so I thought we’d go one better by enjoying it Christmas Eve. 😊. This is my first Christmas without mum and I’m trying hard to celebrate the happy memories rather than be sad. Last year was hard as we knew it would be her last and this year Covid has disrupted family plans so it’s just my dad and my husband for our meal tomorrow.

      Wishing you peace and happiness with your families

      I think that's a lovely way to honor your mum and I'm sorry she's not with you this year. I miss my Nanas trifle, it was amazing, it was impossible to not go back for 2nds and even 3rds (if you could get away with it because the rest of the family was tucking into it too lol)
      I personally don't like sherry or alcohol in desserts really, but she didn't add it because we were kids at the time but she didnt even add it when we were older lol.

      Have a lovely Christmas with some lovely memories xx

      The weather yesterday was wonderful and the family enjoyed a very pleasant walk. We exchange presents. We were able to have mince pies and mulled wine in the winter sunshine in the garden.

      There was a beautiful sunrise, and I’m having my morning cuppa in bed and looking forward to our virtual Christmas Day dinner, and present opening.

      DED has the children home. It was so good to see them face to face, albeit at a distance.

      DYD is in her own, so will be coming round for Christmas dinner. We have a large dining room and living room so will be suitable distanced.

        No goals yesterday apart from ensuring we all had a nice day. @Bex953172 thank you for your kind words.

        No goals for today but I will try to eat a few less calories!

            Planned pass day yesterday, so weight bounced up about 1 lb, so quite happy with that. I was in the green today, but ate back over half my exercise calories.

            Hope everyone had a reasonable Christmas.
