    ==============================
    WFTY: DEPTH
    Depth Year - Updates
    I definitely have way too much stuff. I need to streamline my existence, resist adding more stuff, and start using what I have already got. I have been working towards doing this for several years with my decluttering. I need to stop the march of consumerism, and putting money into the pockets of other people by buying things I want rather than actually need.
    03 Jan: This is going to be way harder than I thought. Need to work out strategies and guidelines for what I can and cannot purchase.
    1. I have a stack of books which I haven't read. I will read one of those book a month, and not buy any more books this year. I will source any other books I want to read at the library.
    2. Book 1: The Illusionists - Rosie Thomas ✅
    3. Book 2: Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, Gail Honeyman✅
    4. Book 3: Nothern Lights Ch 8
    5. I have closets full of clothes that no longer fit. I will work my way through them over the next two months, and either alter them to fit, or donate them to charity.
    6. 07 Jan: One bag already full and ready to go to the charity shop
    7. I have a lot of Craft supplies. I will optimise what I have before I buy any new supplies. Sticking to this one will be difficult.
    8. 07 Jan: Depth Year: I have Patchwork Craft this morning. I will pick out one of my ongoing projects and work on it to completion. No new projects until I have finished at least 3 ongoing ones.
    9. 14 Jan: Craft Group: working on patchwork project from last Tues.

    Today was a good day. I had the pre-assessment done for the Executive Edge 10-week wellness challenge. Was not happy to see my BMI and weight so darn high, and some of my lab levels were off, but the good news is that those things are all easily reversed by mindful eating and exercise, and that is what this challenge is all about.

    I had to do a plank, a wall sit (timed) and some squats. They weighed us, did our BMI calculations, did labs for glucose and cholesterol. My BP was good. I'm pretty excited about this challenge. I will see a personal trainer on Friday mornings for 12 weeks now who will teach me the proper way to lift weights, use the machines and find a routine that will be personalized just for me. I was intimidated when I got there...I've never done a plank in my life. Was scary to do a timed one, but we had to get a baseline. I only held mine for 28 seconds, so that's not very good. But lots of room for improvement, right? :mrgreen:

    Next Tuesday evening is the official kick-off meeting so we will learn more then!

    @mytime6630 I am so, so sorry to hear the results were not what we had hoped! I will absolutely be praying for both of you! Those words are horrible to hear; I remember it well. Scariest day of my life.

    Welcome to all our newcomers!

    I didn't get on here earlier to post goals, but I had them in my head so I'll post them now.

    Just for Tuesday, Feb 3:
    • Log every bite | stay green :smile:
    • No added sugar | no flour | no dairy :smile: :smile: :smile:
    • Increase water intake :smile:
    • Do my best at the pre-assessment for Executive Edge :smile:
    • Be grateful and kind :smile: | count to 10 before snapping when irritated :smile:
    • Lymphedema massage on right arm
    • Evening routine: Brush & floss | wash & moisturize | gratitude journal | read SA & JO | Calm app

    WOTY: Persistence

    I don’t know how to get myself turned around. I still want it, but apparently not enough and what if he gets all fit and decides I’m not good enough. There I said it.



    Don't even think that thought .. you know Roger loves you, your weight/fitness has nothing to do with how he feels. But ... you did it once before ... I KNOW you can do it again! We are all here rooting for you. You can do it alongside Roger ... and both of you doing it together will make it that much easier! Don't give up... you can turn your attitude around. I know you can!! You know how much better you will feel ... just maybe try it for just one day .. you know.. a day at a time. Go walking with Roger ... that is not only together time, but you will feel great about yourself.

    2020 - February Discard 5lb Challenge
    Current Weight today:
    Feb 1: 178.0
    Feb 3: 180.6 --- I expected this, with superbowl last nite .. to many chips, etc.
    Feb 4: 181 --- I think this is from overeating for the superbowl. Hoping it comes down!

    JFT, Tues
    1. log all food :)
    2. mindful eating -- Well, kinda. I went to the grocery store, REALLY wanting ice cream, cookies, etc. Instead, I did buy myself ONE snickers ice cream bar. But .. I do consider this a win. I could have bought a whole box of ice cream, and eat it, plus cookies, etc. So I limited myself to 250 calories.
    3. concentrate on water .. I keep forgetting water, and going back to old habits of wanting food when I am really just hungry :) Sipped a lot of water tonite. Hubby is out with his friends, so instead of eating, I cleaned house! A win win.
    4. eat slow:)
    5. nitetime snacking ... my worse time of day ... eat a apple, and sip water:) -- had a bananna, and a "planned" ice cream.

    Hello my fellow healthy warriors!
    Today was a rough one. I just woke up in a funk and couldn't fully shake it. I was irritated by everyone and every thing, and was not very productive. That led to me getting down on myself for being behind at work. I left before finishing the day's notes and had a solid dinner. When the motivation struck, I was able to get up and do some housework and the night's dishes. I am proud I was able to end on a positive note, but feeling like I mostly wasted a day. How can I ever catch up on this mountain of paperwork? Ugh, so stressful. If anyone has advice on staying on top of paperwork or getting to work on time, I'm all ears.

    @bookmeister86 I can so relate to getting derailed at work. Very annoying! Nice work not letting it take over the day.
    @aubyshortcake @TerriRichardson112 I will join your challenge!
    @clicketykeys How did your busy day go? I bet you're glad it's over!
    @azulvioleta6 Sorry to hear about your mom. Did you get more information? You're in my thoughts.
    @pridesabtch how did the daughter do?
    @PackerFanInGB I'm excited for you! And I think 28 second plank sounds like a lot! Let us know what you learn :)
    @snowflake1968 I'm so proud of you for being vulnerable and admitting what's going on! That's the first step right! I have been in your shoes and what works for me is to check the evidence. You KNOW you are worth so much to Rodger and he wants you in his life at any size. Just from what I know about you, you're a fantastic person and I think he's lucky to have you! I get that fear though, man it can be tough to break. For goals I know I had to start REALLY small. What got me started was drinking more water every day for 2 weeks. It felt like I was weak for not doing more, but I found that getting the ball rolling was more important. Love you lady, and you got this!

    Just for Today-Tuesday
    Finish 1/2 January notes ❌
    do dishes ✅
    Track food, exercise, water, daily goals ✅
    80 oz water ✅
    Meet daily recs for the 5 food groups ✅
    Try exercising or tidying for 15 minutes ✅

    Just for Today-Wednesday
    Finish 1/2 January notes-third times a charm?
    do dishes
    80 oz water
    Try exercising or tidying for 15 minutes
    Meet daily recs for the 5 food groups
    Stay in the green (1.2-1.4k calories)
    Track food, exercise, water, daily goals

    🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    Possibly not very helpful but I thought of that joke and couldn't resist making it ;)

    There is probably a serious point under than joke about prioritising about working out which paperwork MUST be done and which is not actually that important and could be ignored (or burnt gleefully!)

    Back home after a couple of days away. All the family birthdays are now over, and I have no more excuses!
    I'm way behind on reading here, so have just read the last page for now.

    @Snowflake1968, I so so understand the thought "I still want it, but apparently not enough"...you have no idea how many times over the years I've thought this. We can do it though, every little step helps :) You say Rodger is doing well with his diet, do you mean he is preparing his own meals? (I only ask as sometimes when a married man does well on a diet it's his wife preparing the meals. I'm sure I would find dieting easier if someone else was making me lovely calorie controlled meals :) ) If he is, could he also make your meals for you so you don't have to think about it?

    JFT Wednesday 5th February

    Will catch up on everyones doings tonight but a quick check in after another hiatus.

    Sunday my mom and stepdad came over to help with the nursery/projects. We got so much done! Sat down for late lunch and my stepdad passed out! My mom is so good under emergency response, she works in healthcare, I called 911 without even asking, DH was scared but good for manpower. Stepdad was back to pretty quickly but EMS responded anyway, and it turned out to be most likely low blood sugar, so super scary but hes okay otherwise!

    I did much better with cooking this week. Managed Sunday-Weds home cooked, ate out with family Thursday and tonight my prepped meal trial arrived and that was a life saver for a night i wanted to order out/not cook. I think it will be worth it to have the first few weeks of adjusting to life with baby. I have another meal kit arriving to try on Tuesday, but I have to cook that one. I think between the two and just cutting down on grocery lists/meal planning will be helpful and we can just get snacks/small groceries delivered/pick up service.

    I'm super tired, and learning that I need to learn how to rest better, so im practicing that skill too!!

    DH has a work training an hour away from home (and home is 40 minutes from the hospital) two weeks before my due date! Im a little anxious about that but my neighbor friend who is a SAHM will bring me to the hospital if anything happens early.

    EVERYONE is sick at work. It's a pool and spa store so you think in January they would just take the time off! But no...so I tried to take time off to avoid the germs and was called in because it was "busy" I stayed for 3 hours and it was not busy so i left, very annoying.

    Things that have helped me this week food wise;
    Larabars
    Frozen/prepared meals
    Taking extra time to rest
    Pepcid!
    No dairy before bed

    Things to continue improving on;
    Use water bottle, drink more water
    Less dunkins stops
    More protein powder, drink smoothie for breakfast even if not hungry

    I'm excited to be an upcoming auntie with your little one on the way. Glad your stepdad is alright. Much love and hugs.

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    Today: 194.0

    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.
