    Daily habits: track, 😁exercise, 😁journal😁

    Monday Action Plan
    1. Up at 5, shower, pack😁
    2. Healthy breakfast in room (oatmeal + protein powder + nuts)😁
    3. Get to airport, get checked in, fly😁
    4. Taxi to hotel, drop bags😁
    5. See the city until 3pm🤨—because of flight delays I got in a run, which was good, but no touristing
    6. Back to hotel, work on reviews until 5pm conference call👿
    7. Make plan for who to meet with, when, over next few days👿
    8. Checkin, reception😁

    Daily habits: track😁, exercise, 😁journal😁

    Tuesday Action Plan:
    1. Up by 6:30, 😁downstairs 0715😁
    2. Pack protein bars and flax seed crackers and protein powder😁
    3. Choose healthy breakfast😁—though when I entered calories on MFP it was ~2x higher than my normal breakfast!
    4. Find a walking break in the day!😁
    5. Bed by 10, 🤨 (almost!) journal😁

    So far eating under maintenance (not quite as low as “1 pound/week” target, though hungry a lot because restaurant food is fatty so you get less for your calories. Have dedicated time to exercise and sleep, though that makes me “dull, poor sport” etc because I’m not up for late night drinks.

    Can’t remember if I already posted Monday’s results, so here are Monday and Tuesday , with the plan for tomorrow, Wednesday:

    Daily habits: track, exercise, journal

    Wednesday Action Plan:
    1. Up by 5:30, run, back by 6:20
    2. downstairs 0725
    3. Pack protein bars and flax seed crackers and protein powder
    4. Choose healthy breakfast
    5. Track all!
    6. Bed by 10, journal

    ==============================
    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.
    Daily Goals
    • Food: log All food and drink; stay under goal; balance macros/micros; Hydrate adequately; NLNS!!!
    • Exercise: Knee Physio; 7,500+ Steps daily; 30 + minutes intentional exercise
    • Other: Daily Mindfulness Practice/Meditation; Practice Self-care; Positively reframe thoughts; Live! Love! Learn!; 15 mins Daily Declutter session; keep up to date with chores

    Hi There

    I’ve been on MFP for over a year and not really have been consistent with. I have at least 15- 20 pounds to lose. My health and self esteem is suffering. What do I do to join your group?

    Welcome to the group.
    Just post your daily goal(s) then report back how you did on them.

    Morning! I forgot to post yesterday, but it was a good/busy day.

    JFT WEDNESDAY:
    - substitute for 4th grade
    - Dishes
    - Laundry
    - meal prep a couple dishes
    - Stay green

    Congrats to all of you in the Valentine’s challenge to stay green! I haven’t prioritized my time to go for walks so that makes it really difficult to stay in my calorie goal. I usually go over by a tiny bit. Not too much damage, but I prefer to see that number in the green!
