    Recap T 2/11
    1) X-trained (weights/circuit) before work = happy me :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings = Fitbit 9,443 steps, 250+ 14/14 boom! 34 floors :)
    3) Meals & snacks prelogged / net calories green / 14c water = Day started off fine, then evening went downhill fast. Uncontrolled snacking & I quit logging. :s Net cals RED.
    4) PA-RM final report :smiley: yay / BC-CC research of BLS continues :# this is such a mess, can't wait to be finished / deal w/ chapter emails :)
    5) To-do's: finalize s/s for tax prep :) just waiting for last docs now / contact P :) / prep lunch for W during webinar :) / wash dishes :) / other? :) refilled heated birdbath, updated finances, read from pile, cleaned retainers
    6) Unplug 9:00 :neutral: / floss :) / retainers :) / bed & no tv 10:00 >:) (treadmill W before work)

    JFT W 2/12
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks/ 5 somethings / pace in office during webinar
    2) Log food once know / net calories zero / 14c water
    3) Preview online menu for happy hour w/ former colleagues & select wisely
    4) Evening: enjoy company of friends & 1 adult beverage / prep clothes & lunch for Th workplace snowshoe hike / other?
    5) UNPLUG 9:00 / floss / retainers / BED & NO TV 10:00 (may have to shovel snow before work)

    Struggling for several days now to stick w/ meal plans and work out. Evening snacking also a problem. Skipped the treadmill before work today and shame on me. Neighborhood roads are once again snow-covered & have icy spots, and I'm afraid to chance falling (fell enough times in the past, and got lucky with no major injury). Means not being able to walk dog fast pace for 3-4 miles, so workouts must be indoors. In a funk about that, plus with dark evenings night after night (sunset is 5:16 today). Guess I'm just getting cabin fever. More than usual this year. *sigh*

    Valentine Day Challenge net calories green = 4X (3,4,5,6) NO roses Fri. 7 or Sat. 8 or Sun. 9 or Mon. 10 (logging error) or Tues. 11 (uncontrolled evening snacking)

    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 / Seroogy's Valentine 5K 46:26.7 ave. pace 14:47
    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

    @teigansdad thanks for sharing your recipe! I put black beans, kidney beans and garbanzo beans in my salads instead of chicken many times for lunch. It's actually really good. I've not thought about doing that with a wrap!

    @maryrobinson40 Hello Sunshine! I hope you had a lovely day! I just get such a big smile when I see your posts! So inspiring and uplifting. xxoo

    ==============================
    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

    [ I have never, EVER, Zumba'd in my entire life. I am not athletic; I am not young; I am not a good dancer; I am not strong; and I am NOT a booty shaker nor am I able to twerk! So, here I find myself in the very front row of the class, front and center in front of the instructor, and we start Zumba'ing to music and doing all kinds of hip and booty things that my 60-year-old *kitten* does not want to do! OMG. I was so embarrassed!!!! The instructor kept trying to get me to try the booty shakes, and i kept shaking my head no. I did do the other things the best I could but, holy crow....I was so embarrassed! My poor team....they're stuck with me. :mrgreen:

    This gave me a chuckle... this is SO me! But ... I now love Zumba. I always go towards the back, and really cannot follow the steps at all .. LOL!! But, I am moving the entire hour, and so tired. It really is a great workout. But there are some ladies that can really shake their booty! Not me. But, don't be embarassed. Just have fun!

    Thursday JFT:
    1. Reasonable evening snacking
    2. Mindful eating—slow down!
    3. Be in the green

    I like to keep things simple :) today I had an issue with suddenly eating a lot of food this evening before bed. I think I didn’t eat enough earlier in the day and then was super hungry for dinner and after.

    Hello my heathy people,

    Looks like people really showed up to post today! Great to see all the updates! Today was a BUSY day, but I still managed to chip away a little at my overdue reports. I am a bit behind on the little stuff (notes, call backs, things to look up), but I have some open time tomorrow morning and I hope to catch up. This week I've been putting meals together without using the Mayo Clinic meal plan to see how I do with less structure, and tonight I decided to make my delicious sheet pan chicken fajitas. I love this recipe, simple and tasty. It ended up being 340 calories, much better than I anticipated! I had some really good sessions today, so all in all a good day.

    @teagansdad Thanks for the recipe! I'm excited to try it.
    @HEGoddard0928 Hope you're feeling better soon. It seems like so many people are feeling under the weather recently. :(
    @PackerFanInGB I am so proud of you! I don't think I would have been brave enough to do any of it! And good for you for sticking to what you felt (mostly) comfortable doing. Nicely done.
    @mytime6630 I admire your strength and you and your husband are in my thoughts. Don't worry about meeting any expectations around being on here other than what you can do. That is enough. Hugs to you my friend.

    Just for Today-Wednesday
    Finish all February notes ❌ no time and I prioritized reports

    Just for Tuesday
    1. Journal every bite :)
    2. Increase water intake :)
    3. No added sugar / no flour / no dairy :)
    4. 30 minutes of activity :)
    5. Really listen tonight at Executive Edge and take away as much as I can :)
    6. Self-care activity :)


    Last night was so fun at the Executive Edge kick-off! Met the other two people on my team, met our team captain and our Health & Wellness Coach, met the other 15 teams and their team captains, and then ended the meeting by going into the gym and doing some activities. I thought I was going to die of embarrassment! I have never, EVER, Zumba'd in my entire life. I am not athletic; I am not young; I am not a good dancer; I am not strong; and I am NOT a booty shaker nor am I able to twerk! So, here I find myself in the very front row of the class, front and center in front of the instructor, and we start Zumba'ing to music and doing all kinds of hip and booty things that my 60-year-old *kitten* does not want to do!

    3. No added sugar / no flour / no dairy
    4. 30 minutes of activity
    5. Podcast / daily reading
    6. Self-care activity

    WOTY 2020: Persistence






    😂 NOW I KNOW WE'RE SISTERS...LOL. THE Nurse at the Clinic I attend have been trying to get me to her Zumba class. I YouTubed it and my "kitten" wasn't trying to do it either and I can't twerk or bootie bounce and my daughters have been busting a gut laughing at my old dancing. They say MaMa what are you doing? Nothing's moving but your boobs. OMG I know . And with my knees being in their condition, you can imagine. I told them the only thing I can turn on is the light switch... Lol

    @mytime6630 - thoughts and prayers for good results for your husband.

    @cschmitz110515 - I noticed this morning it was getting light on the way to worn and when I ran out this evening there was still a hint of blue in the sky at 630. Like you, I am don’t with the dark and cold. It’s been a long winter.

    @PackerFanInGB - I did a Zumba class a few years ago and enjoyed it. I need to do another one. Like @mytime6630 I stayed towards the back of the class. My instructor said if your moving it’s better than sitting on your couch, don’t worry about getting the moves 100%.
