    @TerriRichardson112 I added the Monday shamrock for SERmom3 when I added mine

    I didn't check in all weekend or Monday. I think I was just embarrassed because I was totally off the rails. I did ride a bit yesterday as I had the day off and it was nice out, but with all the "adulting" I had to do the ride was short. No where near enough to make up for the gluttony of the long weekend.

    @TerriRichardson112 please add me to the challenge, I need to find some motivation. Thanks, Nikki

    JFT Tuesday
    - On time for work
    - Protein bar for breakfast
    - Audits got pushed to tomorrow and now I have to find something to do other than eat...
    - Ride the Peleton tonight
    - Finish mound of laundry I started yesterday
    - No alcohol
    - Log everything and stay green
    - Work on replacing memories of emotional/physical trauma associated with this time of year with new good experiences. Harder than I thought it would be...

    Recap M 2/17
    1) Walked treadmill before work 3.23 mi 1:01 & stretched = happy me :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings = Fitbit 14,584 steps, 250+ 14/14 boom! 35 floors :smiley:
    3) Prelog meals & snacks / net calories green (shamrock challenge) / 14c water = Net cals green 44 :mrgreen: , sodium -512 (maybe less since I used low sodium broth in soup), sugar -10 (fruit, veg, french yogurt), fiber excellent, protein low :/ , 14c water
    4) Organize BC-CC folders :) much more time than expected (again) / draft APG :) / draft prelim report :/ no time / submit for review if receive last docs/info :) lots more to review & write-up / start G-PT (due 3/18) :neutral: no time / request CPE days :smiley: spring conference approved & company pays (yay), March seminar TBD / updated Asst. Manager on status :)
    5) Evening: make Italian veg soup :) / spend time w/ hubby :) / shovel snow as necessary still snowing when I went to bed / prep clothes for T evening hike (still on wait list, so we'll see if I actually go) :smiley: / other? :) put away clean dishes, read from pile
    6) Unplug 9:00 :) / floss :smiley: / retainers :smiley: / bed & no tv 10:20 :smiley: (workout T before work)

    JFT T 2/18
    1) 6 a.m. shoveled snow 43 minutes ~ thank heavens for hubby & snowblower! happy me :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / pace in office during webinar / 5 somethings
    3) Log meals & snacks / net calories green / 14c water (taper off late afternoon ~ don't want to be on hike and have to go)

    6) Evening: call mom & dad / chores?
    7) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / bed & tv off 10 (treadmill W before work)

    Yesterday's storm stalled over us last night and we got a little more snow than predicted. Thank heavens hubby snowblowed 5" at 1 a.m. then I shoveled the remaining several inches this morning before work, thinking that would be today's workout. When I got to work this morning, I had a message from one of the fitness guides that someone canceled last minute, and I've been bumped up from the wait list for this evening's snowshoe hike at Quarry Park ~ woohoo! Glad I lugged my gear along "just in case." With beautiful fresh snow and moderate temps, weather will be perfect. I've never been to this park so will truly be an adventure (and workout)!

    Fitbit exercise goals :) First time in ages!

    We went for a walk in the local castle gardens to look at the snowdrops and spring flowers. It was cold with hail storms but very pretty. I’m looking forward to summer and the water lilies in their pond. I remember last year, we took a picnic and basked in the sun enjoying the garden :) I’m looking forward to some warm weather and more pretty flowers. The catkins are coming out and there are buds on the trees but the forecast is not so hopeful ....

    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!!!

    Hey team!

    Felt a bit tired today but not too bad. Tomorrow I have an old college roommate in town and I am so excited to see her. I took a half day as she has an afternoon training, so we'll be having a brunch with my bestie, who was also a college roommate. It should be a nice time. I plan to be responsible, but not restrictive. I want to make changes for life, and depriving myself of tasty food is not something that will work for me. I also think it will be interesting to see how the calories stack up for eating out, which I have not done much of recently. Oh! and I tried jump roping again tonight. It went a lot smoother but it is definitely a high intensity workout! I made it through about 10 minutes with only short breaks. I'm hoping this is something I can continue and build stamina with.

    @TerriRichardson112 Please add a shamrock for me today.
    @aubyshortcake What did you think of the Oreos? I tried those once and they were amazing but I could not finish them all-too rich! Nice work on all those smileys!
    @mytime6630 Hoping today went ok *hugs*
    @cschmitz110515 Shoveling is DEFINITELY a good workout!
