    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!

    -he's starting a bike shop out of our outside office.
    -got diagnosed as ADHD(everything makes a WHOLE LOT MORE SENSE!!)
    Umm....I think that's it. Lol

    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: 192.4

    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 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. Almost done with the first week of performances. I'm so tired.
    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.

    Yesterday at work was really rough. I did so much heavy lifting that by the time I got home I couldn't lift my arms. So I literally did nothing all day. I was so tired and worn out that I think the only thing I actually accomplished was going to Wawa for food and the liquor store for wine. And that was only bc Matt was feeling anxious and needed to do something.

    And this morning I did EVEN MORE lifting and I'm just fricken dead. I have 2 hours left of work and then I'm off until Tuesday morning. I can not wait!

    I'm not going to post goals for today bc I honestly don't think I'm gonna do anything except maybe watch baseball and do some reading.

    But I will post for Monday.

    JFT Monday
    - up at 9
    - Set up appt with new oral surgeon
    - Set up appt with new psych
    - DMV 11:15
    - AWAI LETTER!!!!!
    - Read 3 chapters of LOTS
    - Text Donna
    - Dishwasher

    I think thats it!

    @Snowflake1968 *hugs* I'm so sorry for your loss my friend. That's really sucky. I hope that this spurs her to get the help that she needs!

    I am sitting on the deck enjoying a very slight breeze. It is currently 28C. It is supposed to get even warmer in the next couple of days.

    Rodger is at work and I should be cleaning but it’s too hot. I’m not sure what to do with my day.

    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.

    Ate too much this weekend and hence weight has gone up again. Baaah. Quite frustrated with how little I seem to be able to control myself but also with how easily my weight goes up but not down!

    However, I will not give up - as I know giving up will lead to gaining lots so giving up is not an option.

    Today I will have a good day!


    Today's goals:

    Log everything I eat
    Be in the green
    Do exercise DVD
    Get 5,000 steps
    Drink 4 bottles water

    Read solicitor letter!

    So thank God I checked the schedule before I left work yesterday bc my manager changed it around so instead of being off today I am, in fact, working. Woo...hoo...

    I had to reschedule a bunch of things and had to do 3 more hours of heavy lifting putting the order away. I usually do one of two jobs in the morning. I either put the freezer away which isn't a whoooole lot of actually heavy lifting. The other is putting the meat/cooler order away and A LOT of that is lifting very heavy boxes and like 15-20 30-35lb boxes over my head...so yeah...I'm fricken tired and sore. Lol

    So today is going to be a do nothing day. I'm going to go home, put on baseball and do some reading or something. And maybe(hopefully) fall asleep. Lol.

    JFT Monday
    -Up at 4:15😑 Kinda? The alarm went off and Matt brought me a cup of coffee and then walked out of the room. Lol. I downed to coffee in like 3 sips and went back to sleep. Lol. I was only 7 minutes late to work though! so that's a win.😂Lol
    - work 5-1
    - no buying junk on the way home I have plenty at home.
    - 3 a few pages of LOTS
    - Nap?
    - Bed early

    Have a great day everyone!

    @HEGoddard0928 Hi Hannah, happy to see you post again! Glad you have some medical answers and hope that really helps. Good luck for Matt's new business, too.

    @Snowflake1968 So sorry about your cousin. (hugs)

    JFT 6/28 M
    1) Yay! Walked dog 3.65 mi before work, heard lots of cranes & other birds, saw 1 bunny :smiley: happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Log everything! Prelog is even better / net cals zero / 14c water
    3) GA-C/V determine revisions needed for Observation/Inquiry Checklist & update / 12:00 Facebook Live
    4) Make strawberry rhubarb bars / check DVR / declutter 15 min. / fill gallon jugs from rain barrels / another chore?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / Calm app before bed / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

    Happy to see more posts since Friday. JFT had been feeling a little lonely lately. I have no recap since I didn't log over the weekend, ate too much & didn't work out. Back to regular workout schedule this week!

    Sat. I went early to the farmers market and just beat the rain, as it started on my way home. We had steady rain almost all day Sat. into Sun. and rain gauge had 3". That's on top of the 1.5" we got earlier in the week. Since most of our area had been nearing drought conditions, I'm glad for the rain for the farmers. Also glad on Fri. evening I took advantage of nice weather to plant 3 hanging baskets, clean both birdbaths, and refill multiple bird feeders. Dog enjoyed running around while I putzed in the yard.

    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 on 6.19.21 after thunderstorm in 1:45:49 ave. pace 17:02 per mile / Titletown Wellness Shoreline Challenge: virtual distance from Gills Rock to Pleasant Prairie (232 miles) as many times as possible 6.12.21 - 11.26.21
    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

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). 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. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 63, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)

    JFT- Sunday June 27
    1.5L of water - 🙂 a lot more, I was guzzling water all day
    Log all Food - I had some bread and peanut butter for “supper” last night around 11 because it had been too hot to eat yesterday. I didn’t log that, but did log everything else.
    Walk 15 minutes - maybe with watering garden twice and going back and forth to get water and use the bathroom. I think it counts

    JFT- Monday June 28
    1.5L of water
    Log all Food
    Walk 15 minutes

    @bookmeister86 - I’m so with you. I don’t understand why it’s so hard to lose and so easy to gain.

    @HEGoddard0928 - I meant to tell you my daughter is getting a lot of strategies for living with ADHD in TikTok of all places. She has already seen a huge improvement in herself and it’s only been about 3 weeks. She did say the meds were a little rough to get used to but is doing better the last few days.
    All that lifting should help with the weight.

    @cschmitz110515 - I’m making a concerted effort to be here daily again. Work is starting to slow a bit so I don’t feel as technologically drained as I was.

    I’ve missed you all!

    Yesterday worked out pretty well diet-wise.

    I've drawn up a chart showing the number of days until we go to France for the boyfriend's sisters wedding - 52. I'm on a mission to be less than 12 stone (168 pounds) by then. It's quite ambitious, but I can do it if I focus and put some effort in. I feel motivated not to look like a blob at the wedding, or indeed throughout the rest of the holiday - they have a swimming pool in their garden and the boyfriend's mother and sister are both very slim (being annoyingly French and all). So I will suck it up and make some effort for a while, want to see some results!

    I actually have no idea how much I have to lose because my scale has pretty much died. It's been getting more erratic for a little while but today was a new low - gave me five different readings in different places on the floor, over a range of 6lb. I've ordered a new one - will be interesting to see what I actually weigh...

    So, yesterday's goals:
    Log everything I eat :)
    Be in the green :)
    Do exercise DVD :)
    Get 5,000 steps :)
    Drink 4 bottles water :)

    Read solicitor letter! >:)I was feeling grumpy and put it off again. We are going to do it today though.

    Today's goals:

    Log everything I eat
    Be in the green
    Get 10,000 steps
    Drink 4 bottles water

    Read the solicitor letter!
