    Hope you and Jim will feel better soon.
    Hope you and your boys will do ok with homeschool this week.

    I purchased 1G extra data but have almost blown through that already. Apparently watching videos takes a lot more data than just surfing the web. I think I may have to change my plan to unlimited for a couple of months.

    Sunday 3/23
    Food: still not feeling well
    Water: Way over n64 oz
    Exercise: 25 minute stationary bike, PT and stretching

    Feeling better but not back to normal yet. I am sure my calories were under. I did try to exercise. I just did an easy 25 min on the bike. I was going to do 15 but was watching a show and didn't realize how long I was on. Hope tomorrow I am back to normal. Jim is still not feeling well but hopefully he will turn the corner soon. I will check back in tomorrow.

    @GingerPwr I am glad you had a couple of days of fun but it is good that you are back on the wagon and have a good plan for the week.
    @Cafelelia Looks like you are set up for a good week with the boys between school and extra activities. It is nice that you can help a small business out at the same time.
    @CassieGetsFit2013 Nice loss for this week and the month! Next weeks weigh in will count toward the first week of April.
    @xX_PhoenixRising_Xx Are you going to still be able to get to the office this afternoon. They are still saying ours is 15 days which I think we are on day 7. I have a feeling that will change. Hopefully you have your supplies ready for at home or have time to get them. What a cute cat!
    I tell you these pets have the life!
    @tryingagain5 That data does go quickly for some reason. I think it is a good idea to do the unlimited while this is going on. I hope you have a good night and can get to the phone store tomorrow.
    @rosieposiesri Hope you feel better soon. Soundly like you have changed your goals for now. Would you like to go to the cheer squad and still check in or would you prefer to leave the challenge? Hopefully you stay with us. :)

    Slightly down but I'll take it. Try to get more steps in today by walking around the house. It's going to be another cold, wet and gloomy day here.

    Hi everyone,

    Taking a break from homeschooling to check in. My sons start with a virtual trainer today for dry land hockey training. My younger son had his first session this morning, and it was great. I was worried about how to keep them active and fit, so this is a wonderful solution and he is giving us a great bulk price as well. Yesterday went well. I followed my food plan, drank 2 l of water and worked out on the indoor cycle for 42 minutes. We are not in a complete lock down yet here, but I think that will be coming this week. I asked my mom today for coping strategies as she is from a generation that faced a lot of deprivation and adversity. She told me that we cannot control the circumstances, so we have to control what we can which is ourselves. She said that we have to keep going, even in tough times, and stay determined.

    @jedashultz - Nice loss! It is cold & gloomy here too today. Maybe put on some music to help you getting those indoor steps!
    @podperson1 - Great loss! Your fur babies are adorable! Working from home is an adjustment, but it gets easier over time.
    @xX_PhoenixRising_Xx - You are doing great and you must be really pleased to have that home gym set up! How are your kids doing? The supermarkets are no fun right now and working from home takes some time to get used to. I know that the business and economic worries are very concerning, and I find that part of things so stressful. Fantastic idea about preparing for Easter now. I am going to get on that and thanks for the tip! Your fur baby is adorable!
    @sleepymom5 - Sorry that you and Jim are still under the weather. Lot’s of rest and fluids! Take care!
    @tryingagain5 - Praying is a nice thing to do when you can’t sleep and thank you for your prayers. I think that getting unlimited data for a few months is the way to go, as you can keep your fitness up and stay connected with everyone.
    @Cassiegetsfit2013 - That’s a great loss and you should be proud! Keep it going and take care of yourself!

    Daily Check In: Sunday
    Food: 16 hr IF
    Water: not as good as I can be. Focusing on more water today
    Exercise & Steps: 20 mins on the Bowflex, 30 min dog walk; 13,588 steps

    Spent Sunday running some errands for my neighbor and grocery shopped for her and us.
    Some items are well stocked but other shelves are bare... paper products, soap, flour, etc are nowhere to be found. Its a challenge to shop for one much less two households but I was able to get her everything on her list by shopping at two different grocery stores. I hadn't really considered the limiting of products such as milk, etc. and I had to buy her milk at one store and my milk at another. Hopefully she is set for a while. With the snow melting, the bus service is able to get to her house and take her to her physical therapy appointments. Its some measure of independence for her I suppose.

    Hubby got home safely yesterday afternoon. Crazy man did the drive in 2 days... its takes me 3! My anxiety seem to have lessened somewhat with him being home. Also limiting how much news I watch.

    Managed over 10,000 steps the last two days and it feels great!! Trying to refocus on my eating and exercise as I can't control much else these days.

    @tryingagain5 Thanks!! And I think an unlimited plan is a good idea to stay connected during this time. It would be nice if the phone companies offered some sort of discount but that's probably hoping for too much.

    @podperson1 Your fur babies are adorable! I'm trying to be more like my dogs by living in the moment and worrying less

    @cafelelia Your sons are so cute... but don't tell them I said that LOL Good luck with the home schooling. I'll weigh myself on Thursday and provide it to you.

    @sleepymom5 Hope you and Jim feel better soon!

    @xX_PhoenixRising_Xx Good luck with the total lockdown. I wonder if we're headed in the same direction... Your cat looks quite relaxed!

    Sending everyone a virtual hug!!

    I am just checking in quick. I am feeling better but still not back to normal. Jim is still pretty sick. Hopefully he turns the corner soon. Don't worry, I am a nurse and I don't think he has more than influenza. He has a bad case but no signs that are concerning. No fever. He does have a cough that seemed worse last night and this am but has settled down with the humidifier. I forced him to get out of bed this morning for a bit. I am going to do that again this afternoon. If I was concerned I would run his symptoms by the doctor.

    I am trying to get my CPR up to date so doing the online course so I can sign up to help. I have a friend who gives the practical so I can just run over and do the test when I am ready.

    I will check in later. Hope all is doing ok.

    @xX_PhoenixRising_Xx Sounds like you are as prepared as you can be. Good luck with finishing up getting everything ready. Hugs!
    @podperson1 Nice loss! I love the cat pics! They are so cute! Hope you are able to get some of your work done from home. Hugs!
    @jedaschultz Nice loss! Especially with all that is going on. Hope you are hanging in there with all that is going on.
    @Cafelelia I love your motivation Monday post! I love that picture of you handsome boys! <3
    @nstephenson01 I am so happy your husband is home safely! I can't believe he made it in 2 days. I can understand that he probably wanted to get home before any lockdowns began. Your neighbor is lucky to have you. It is so awesome in times like these to see people like you reaching out and helping others. Your neighbor is going through such a hard time with her husband and then all this starts happening. You are probably the one of the only people she can count on in her life right now. That being said, I am glad you are still taking care of yourself too. Hopefully with having the hubs home, things will get a little better and you can get into a little quarantine routine.

    Just a quick check in.
    Weigh in isn't till Wednesday but I'm getting really frustrated with not being able to break this plateau. Y'all think light thoughts for the next 2 days!!! Lol.

    Sunday steps 10,243

    Way behind on steps today so I'm going to have to do some extra cardio or something.

    @sleepymom5 glad you're on the mend and I hope your husband gets better too!

    Motivation Monday
    Now more than ever, practicing kindness and gratitude can help us and others through this time. Post a photo or describe what you are thankful for or an act of kindness in your life (whether you gave or received that kindness).

    I am thankful for my family. Although we aren't all together at this time at least we can stay in touch and are healthy. Well, except for Jim but he will be soon.

    Monday 3/23
    Food: good
    Water: 56 oz
    Exercise: 30 minutes low intensity bodyweight

    Everyone at work last night was wondering if we would go back tonight. Well, after I got up and turned on the news...Michigan is now on a stay at home order for the next 3 weeks.

    I've already made myself a general schedule for doing things so I don't sit around and do nothing. Figure it will be a good time to clean/organize closets, cupboards, drawers, etc since I have nowhere to go.
