    For a long time I've been struggling with binge eating at night, I had insomnia and it has become a habit to help me fall asleep. It is honestly my biggest problem, I eat healthy most days but when night comes I bings, hardcore. So that's my goal today to not binge at bed time😂🙏 wish me luck

    That's a tricky one! Always takes a lot of will power. To help you through I would prep yourself some healthy snacks. It's always easy to grab a bag of crisps or chocolate. So get some healthy snacks ready like carrot sticks or a weighed out portion of nuts or fruit. Anything low calorie so if you feel the urge atleast you're not destroying your calorie allowance :)

    And the healthy snacks will remind you that your goal is to not binge!
    Eat them mindfully!

    @Bex953172 - I have sage green in my kitchen and have loved it for years, I'm thinking of redoing it now because I'm getting a bit tired of it. I had it in my previous kitchen as well so it's been about 9 years.

    @bookmeister86 - When I had the Excel sheet going (which I need to do again) I weighed daily and then averaged it both weekly and monthly. It seemed to work well for me. With all of the daily fluctuations I would find myself getting discouraged, but I noticed in doing the average that I was consistently losing. The weekly weigh-in just didn't work for me mentally. I would think I failed every week that it didn't drop from the previous week.

    @astory7132 - Evening snacking is a big issue for me and some others on here. Good luck. I have found if I keep busy with something else it helps me avoid eating. I paint my nails a lot! Can't eat with wet nail polish.

    I worked until 930 last night, have another very long day today. Our first payroll in our new system is being ran on Tuesday. I don't feel prepared at all!

    Recap 6/8 T ~ heat & humidity continues :sweat_smile:
    1) Walked dog 3.34 mi before work B) happy dog & drippy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :mrgreen: 14/14 boom! 15.7K
    3) Net cals zero / 14c water = Dry roasted peanuts as pre-supper snack (after grocery shopping) and didn't measure. Probably more than I think. Net cals red >:) 14c water :smiley:
    4) Call Don 10:00 = Robin joined for part / last 2 regs F&D = plus had to revise another based on discussions with Don / finalize compliance rate sheet & report draft / update IA request doc / submit for review YAY / emails? = 5/6 the important stuff got done & I squeaked in on my review deadline :)
    5) Grocery shop / prep overnight oats, carrots & celery, water bottle / wash dishes / declutter 15 min. / one other chore? too tired = 4/5
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work) :smiley: 5/5

    JFT 6/9 W ~ Only slightly less hot & slightly less humid this morning. High to only reach 87 today. :D
    1) Walked dog 3.66 mi before work B) happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Make pesto tortellini salad for supper / net cals zero / NO evening snacks / 14c water
    4) Respite day at work / update Project Status s/s / update Calm app / catch up emails

    6) Unplug 9:00 / meditate / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

    Recently my employer announced the Calm app as our newest benefit, with unlimited access to the full library. Up until now, I've been using only the free version. Can't wait to try some new meditations!

    2021 Goals:
    1) Weight 150#
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP
    3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability. Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale.
    4) Take measurements & log on MFP every month end ~ remember this year! ~ 1.31.21 ~ 2.28.21 ~ 4.3.21 ~ 4.30.21 not pretty ~ skipped 5.31.21
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking but include weights/circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race or challenge events even if virtual ~ started MapMyWalk You Vs. Year 1021K on Jan. 1 / virtual 50 Mile Frenzy 11.27.20 - 1.15.21 (replaced Frenzy on the Fox for Jan. 2021) 50.37 miles 12.17.20 and completed 97.44 miles total / Tour de Northeast WI virtual challenge: cover distance from Oshkosh to Gills Rock (139 miles) 1.1.21 - 3.31.21 ~ completed distance on 3.21.21 / 30/45 Build to Bellin virtual challenge 30 min. activity for total of 1,350 min. in 45 days 3.1.21 - 4.15.21 = 146 out of 339 in 34:00:42 / Hope 2021 Face Mask virtual 5K (benefits No Kid Hungry) anytime 5.11.21 in 58:04 / 100 Miles in May virtual challenge ~ 134.68 miles would've been more if I hadn't sluffed off on dog walks one week / Bellin (virtual) 10K
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last year that should be repeated
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ had this goal in 2020 and how ironic
    9) Declutter bedroom, home office and basement ~ made good progress in 2020 & want to keep it up
    Word for 2021: Gratitude ~ be mindful of & appreciate my many blessings

    NLNS
    Jun: LNS: 1 ~|~ ME: 8

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts to remember.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • The scale is only one gauge of progress. Others include Measurements, clothes fit, improvement in general well-being/fitness.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    3. P&P script. Run lines for Little Princess. Late AM bike ride?
    4. Lunch: Shrimp thingies? What can I do to get my silver jewelry re-shinied?
    5. Stretch. Fanfic. S&F script work. Check on plates. Read: 30 min.
    6. Afternoon: Choose orgs for donations? Check in on MFP. Log reading on Beanstalk and Goodreads.
    7. Evening: Clois action scene. Dinner: Soup? Read-aloud Jolly Roger? Rehearsal.
    8. Drink more water. No, more. Keep the pitcher in the fridge full. You're not actually hungry. Make some tea. Drink more water! Chop celery and pack lunch. Set out clothes for tomorrow. Set up JFT for tomorrow.
    9. Shower. Review papers by desk. File or trash.

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    End of January: 189.8
    End of February: 190.0
    End of March: 190.4
    End of April: 188.7
    End of May: 191.2
    Today: 193.2

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie), Hood Feminism (Mikki Kendall), Caste (Isabel Wilkerson).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
    6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning – March? ObG schedule for April. Schedule PCP for May.
    7. Theater: Little Princess.
    8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
    12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story. Open Wordpress in Safari.
    13. Lifting: 15 squats, 15 deadlifts, 10 shoulder presses, 15 arm raises, 15 pushups, 30 crunches, 15 side lifts, 15 back kicks, horse stance for 5 breaths.
    14. Summer: Organize photos with the family. Write Clois. Write Stuffy and Friends. Create PDFs for video lessons. Change the green room into an office.
    15. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

    WFTY: Persistence. My husband made cookies today. I had two. They were delicious.
    Reminder: Last year's WFTY was progress, and I am ... actually, I was going to say content, but it's more than that. I'm proud of myself, and I'm pleased with the progress that I made. Even without the challenges throughout the year, I accomplished things that I should be proud of; and given those challenges, I'm even happier about what I was able to do.

    Having met my project deadline on Tues. (just), I am not very enthused about the rest of my work week. No webinars, nothing pressing, just project clean-up and start my next assignment which is not due until August. So one of the first things I did in the office this morning was submit my leave request form to take PTO tomorrow. Might as well use some accumulating PTO hours (paid benefit after all) while the weather is nice. Maybe that means I get something done at work today, maybe not. LOL

    Went out shopping early yesterday and never got around to posting goals, but I did complete my log and met my water goal. Fitting rooms are open again, so I tried on a few bathing suits. Yikes! More motivation to stay in the green and step up the exercise.

    The heat finally broke last night, and the AC crew is finally coming to fix the system today - of course. Lovely weather for a walk, but I'm stuck here waiting for the repair crew. Ah, well. At least I'll be able to get something done in the house.

    @cschmitz110515 - What a great benefit to have. I have listened to the free ones as well.

    Our payroll project has been a bumpy ride, but we're almost to the finish line. I will be so glad when the implementation is over and done with.

    @astory7132 - Late night snacking is a hard habit to break, and I find it's one of the first bad habits to return when I'm not logging. The cold turkey approach has never worked for me, so I aim for less rather than none. I agree with Bex that it's a good idea to prepare something ahead of time or at least to plan on what to have. It helps to also think about what food sensations I'm after (sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy, creamy etc.). I find that if I don't address the taste and texture issues, I wind up eating more.

    I drink a lot of herb tea in the evening, but I know I'm going to want something else. I try to balance my meals during the day so I wind up with 200+ calories to spend after dinner. I started eating yogurt in the evening to up my calcium and protein intake and found that for me, good yogurt is as satisfying as ice cream. My secret weapon is a yogurt "sundae" - a cup of berries topped with 1/2-3/4 cup of Greek yogurt (2-5%) and half a tablespoon of honey or a sprinkling of granola. The whole thing comes in at around 200 calories and has enough protein and fat to keep hunger at bay.

    Once you figure out what works for you, it gets easier. We're all rooting for you!

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie), Hood Feminism (Mikki Kendall), Caste (Isabel Wilkerson).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals.
    6. Medical: Dentist call to schedule cleaning – March? ObG schedule for April. Schedule PCP for May.
    7. Theater: Little Princess.
    8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
    12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story. Open Wordpress in Safari.
    13. Lifting: 15 squats, 15 deadlifts, 10 shoulder presses, 15 arm raises, 15 pushups, 30 crunches, 15 side lifts, 15 back kicks, horse stance for 5 breaths.
    14. Summer: Organize photos with the family. Write Clois. Write Stuffy and Friends. Create PDFs for video lessons. Change the green room into an office.
    15. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

    WFTY: Persistence. I did not run today, but I did a great job on the green room.
    Reminder: Last year's WFTY was progress, and I am ... actually, I was going to say content, but it's more than that. I'm proud of myself, and I'm pleased with the progress that I made. Even without the challenges throughout the year, I accomplished things that I should be proud of; and given those challenges, I'm even happier about what I was able to do.
