    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.

    The surgery is scheduled for 12:45. I have to be there are 11:15. So just about an hour and a half. The hospital is about a 5 minute car ride from the house so that's really nice. Mom is coming with me and Matt to the hospital.

    !

    Thinking of you, and hope the surgery went OK. Hugs.

    Yesterday once again I got frustrated at work and had a snacky binge. Not very impressed with myself. But I logged it all and actually I was still in maintenance so it's not that bad.

    I have to figure out how to stop doing this at work as it's detailing all my efforts. I'm attempting to improve the quality of my breaks at work and that's helping a little. There's more I can do there. I am also thinking that, where possible, I should arrange meetings for the afternoon. It's in the afternoon that I get tired/ frustrated/ willpower gets low. If I'm in meetings then it might stop me from thinking about food/ going to get it.

    Today I am leaving the office at 12 for a meeting then going straight home, so shouldn't have these problems!


    Yesterday's goals:

    - Track all food and drink :)
    - Be in the green :/as above
    - Not have unplanned snacks/ binge outside the home >:)as above

    - 45+ min lunch break :)
    - Take regular ‘breathe/ reframe’ breaks at work to manage emotions :/ Forgot about this
    - Positive affirmations :smile:

    - Finish at 5pm :smile:
    - Call mum :neutral:I tried but she was out! Grr
    - Talk to boyfriend in French :/Forgot about this
    - Get stuff ready for running :smile:
    - Gratitude journal :/Forgot about this
    - Lights off by 11 :neutral:Close to it


    Today's goals:

    - Track all food and drink
    - Be in the green
    - Not have unplanned snacks/ binge outside the home

    - Positive affirmations
    - Finish work by 6.30pm

    - Call mum
    - Talk to boyfriend in French
    - Read French book
    - Pack for weekend
    - Plan holiday
    - Back up hard drive
    - Quality time
    - Gratitude journal
    - Lights off by 11

    Calories in Green - I am struggling so hard with this

    It is hard! For me, my big challenges are snacking at/ post work, and eating out. I'm struggling with those a lot.

    What in particular are your big challenges? What are you doing differently to before? If you can identify the key issues, maybe we can help you find some solutions/tactics for them?

    We met with hubbys doctor yesterday to find out the results of the bone scan and MRI.

    The cancer had spread outside the prostate, but the good news it has not spread to his bones and vital organs. But that means they will not do surgery, because as the doctor said, there was no point in putting him through all that, only to have to do radiation anyhow.

    So ... they are just going directly to radiation. They may also use hormone therapy in addition to the radiation. If that does not work, then there are other options they can do afterwards. We meet with the oncology radiologist next week to discuss, but they are saying it will be 45 days of radiation .. and we can't skip a day!

    Hubby is happy in not needing surgery, but I would have rather they just take out the cancer, but, we are still staying very hopeful and just grateful it has not spread to his bones. It is a very common cancer, just don't like the aggressive part, but we really like the doctor a lot, so that helps.


    THank you all SO SO much for your kind words and thoughts. You guys truly are the best!

    I'm so happy to hear that your worst fears weren't realised, and that it is treatable.

    I guess the radiation will be tough for both of you. But you are tough, and you have faith, so I know you'll get through it.

    I will keep saying prayers for you and you will be in my thoughts!

    Wednesday went well. Still didn’t manage to knock out emails or back logged paper work.. 😑
    Almost skipped workout AND just prior to that ate three Sasquatch sized hand fulls of M&Ms... man I had all I could do not filling up a bowl of those little candies from heaven and watching Netflix w the girls. Yesterday was weird. Was ravenous during dinner. I made a ground turkey Shepard’s pie. Had two servings and I just wanted to keep eating. Crazy thing was I knew I had eaten enough so I started chewing some gum to let myself settle. Sure enough 10 minutes later I just felt stuffed. Am I just eating too fast?
    Still ended up having awesome workout and meeting physical and diet goals but almost went off rails


    Thursday goal
    500-750 deficit w exercise
    Sufferfest workout
    P90
    7 pull-ups
    Eat the lunch I packed ( been trying to limit meats to once a day...watched a couple Netflix documentaries on meats and animal products and man they made a good argument for plant based food) too bad I love meat
    Plenty of water
    Catch up on work to-dos
    Grocery store on way home. Working this weekend so need to get food for lunch again
    No booze or beer
