    Recap W 2/5
    1) Meals & snacks prelogged / net calories green / 14c water + Net cals green 63 :), sodium -1,117 :s yikes, sugar green :) , fiber excellent, protein almost good, 14c water
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings / walk dog after work & stretch after = Fitbit 15, 341 steps, 250+ 13/14 & 50 floors. Walked dog 3.49 mi 1:01:34 (forgot to stretch again) = happy dog & happy me! :smiley: What a difference fully charged headlamp & LED vest make ~ one other walker and later kids we met commented on our lights. Good ~ I want drivers to see us, since we have no sidewalks to walk on.
    3) PA-BB finish report draft & submit folder for review :) / BC-CC review docs & call Lee :/ / clear inbox backlog (again) :) / G-PT if time nope
    4) To-do's: prep squash at lunchtime :) / squash in oven before dog walk :) / reply to El's email (so good to hear from her, it's been too long) :) / put clean dishes away :) / prep clothes & lunch for R workplace lunchtime snowshoe hike :) / prep bday card/gift for Wills & mail :) / bake Kodiak Cake power muffins too pooped / other? :) balanced bank accts, watered (some) houseplants
    5) Unplug 9:00 :) / floss :) ONLY b/c on this list / retainers :) ditto / bed & no tv 10 :/ 10:30 (x-train R before work)

    JFT R 2/6
    1) X-trained (weights/circuit) before work = happy me :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings
    3) Change clothes & leave early for workplace lunchtime hike; not sure since snow has repeatedly melted & refroze, and is very crusty, if we'll use snowshoes or just walk
    4) Prelogged meals & snacks / net calories green / 14c water
    5) BC-CC review all add'l docs provided / draft APG
    6) Evening: make planned supper / choir 6:30 / pick up milk, bananas on way home / water rest of houseplants / update budget s/s / other?
    7) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / bed & no tv 10:20 (F rest day)

    Valentine Day Challenge net calories green = 3X (3,4,5)

    Since my weight is stagnant (at least not gaining), I'm wondering how accurate my logging is lately. Have set MFP to lose 1/2 lb. per week. Net calories have been barely green most days. Sometimes I weigh/measure food, not always. Sometimes I eat food prepared by others (workplace, winter market, etc.), and have no idea how to accurately log. I always eat my exercise calories and notice calorie burn in MFP database, Fitbit & MapMyWalk can vary widely for same exercise. Something for me to keep an eye on and maybe make adjustments.

    2020 Goals
    1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19)
    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
    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
    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 2/1
    Word for 2020: Persist

    Just for Wednesday, Feb 5:
    • Log every bite | stay in the green :)
    • No added sugar :) | no flour :) | no dairy :)
    • Increase water intake :) 75 oz!!!
    • Activity, 30 minutes >:)So mad at myself!!! So LAZY!
    • Be grateful and kind :# | think before speaking :# | what is reality vs the "story" I've built in my head... :#Crabby day yesterday. I find I am having less and less patience with my husband, and I really need to get a grip.
      It feels like we are in two different worlds right now...he is retired and moves, thinks and talks really slow lately; I am still working full time at a fast-paced ever-changing health care Quality Department. I find myself feeling like I want to pull the words out of his mouth and push down the gas pedal to make him at least drive the speed limit.
      UGH. I hate feeling this way. I know it hurts his feelings, like he "doesn't do anything right" anymore. I have to get a grip. Thanks for letting me say this out loud!
    • Lymphatic massage on right arm :)
    • Evening routine: Brush & floss :) | wash & moisturize >:) | gratitude journal >:) | read SA & JO >:) | Calm app :)


    Well today needs to be better than yesterday! I have to stop being crabby and lazy. Wish me luck...I don't have a fairy Godmother who can tap my head with her wand, so...

    Tomorrow morning is my first lesson with the personal trainer at the gym. I have to be there at 0700 and I am not a morning person, so this shall be interesting! I'd actually really like to train myself to get up earlier and workout or take a walk so this might be the thing that gets me moving in the right direction! I'm SO excited about this! I really want to get the most that I can out of this corporate challenge! It's a fantastic opportunity.

    We got rid of cable tv yesterday, so I'm kinda going through withdrawal from that! I am not sure how I'm going to be able to watch the Milwaukee Brewers games this year without cable. Hoping to find a way!

    Just for Thursday:
    • Log every bite | stay in the green
    • No added sugar | no flour | no dairy
    • Increase water intake
    • Activity, 30 minutes

    @maryrobinson40 Dang! That's a LOT of rain! It looks like your feet would sink just walking in the grass! Take care and be safe, Miss Mary! :heart:
  • Ugh. I’ve been at least writing food intake since Sat. & entered all day Tues, Wed until after dinner snacking set in, and today. Every day showed weight gain over next 5 weeks—Tues showed 20lb gain! Yup, it’s been leftover party cheese & cookie fest at the house this week, plus hours in front of the screen for online trainings for work. (yes, job finally started). gotta get myself back on track... but cheese is irrestible to me.

    Hi crew!

    Today was a better day. I set an intention around catching up on urgently due paperwork today, and set a longer-term plan to be FULLY caught up by April. I know that seems like a long time, but I am quite behind. Was able to catch up on notes that were due tomorrow, so that felt good. Came home and made a healthy version of a burger with avocado and tomato and YUM I swear it tasted as good as fast food. I was able to do some tidying up and my place is finally shaping up from since I got sick. There are certainly things left to do, but today I hit a tipping point and feel like I can see the light for feeling like I have my *stuff* together.

    @kuhl50 Thanks for sharing your motivation! It's great to see you doing so well with goals!
    @bookmeister86 I have had those days! I never know when the cravings will strike! Tomorrow is a new day, and kudos to you for the great mindset :)
    @teagansdad what is Zwift?
    @azulvioleta6 Nice work with all those smileys!
    @cschmitz110515 I found I had to really measure everything to be sure on what I was eating. Once I was more confident I was able to eyeball my portions. I also recommend the Mayo Clinic guide:
