    Hold up, I do have one goal for today.

    Fold and put away everyone's laundry.
    I just checked...i have 2 full baskets.. AND a mountain on the floor to get through.

    I can't wait until my kids are actually good at folding. They do help but I always end up refolding it when they're not looking lmao

    Saturday 16 December. JANUARY 😳


    Log 😊
    Stay in the green 😊
    5 fruit and veg 😊
    Water 👿
    Fitbit exercise goals 😊
    Weigh 😊 trend ↔️ I’m not making progress - I’m probably eating close to maintenance, over-estimating exercise calories, not logging accurately enough and I don’t feel motivated to make improvements 👿

    My goal today is water -- 96 ounces. I am feeling so toxic and polluted and I just want to clean everything out.

    I did this yesterday and feel like it did some good. Same goal for today.

    Good day on Saturday

    For Saturday:

    -I'm grateful for the overnight fallen snow. Everything is clean, bright. Nice to have real seasons.
    -1850 calories:1783
    -Work out for 80 minutes: 92 minutes including a 53 minute, 2.20 mile treadmill walk
    -Eat between 8 and 6: Done. The 6:00 cut off kept me from another desert
    -Eat dinner at table: Done
    -Invest 15 minutes in professional development: Podcast on walk. Book recap
    -Invest 30 minutes on home duties: Working on taxes, kept up with my stuff
    -Read in bed: Meh


    For Sunday:

    -I'm grateful for the influence of Will Smith. I called him out last fall but his YouTube video on self discipline was a reframe for me. I have strong self discipline in my career, marriage, finances but food was always an entitlement. I deserve the treats. In early January 2020 I listened to his messages of "The center of bringing any dream into fruition is self discipline," "Control of your mind is choosing actions in your own self interest," "Self discipline is forgoing immediate pleasure in exchange for long term self respect," "Self discipline is the definition of self love" and they resonated with me. To get what I want in my health journey requires sacrifice but that sacrifice is truly self love. I'm not 100%, still capable of losing that discipline, but I listen to that same video every Monday morning and it makes a difference.
    -1900 calories and finish the week under a 1900 average:
    -Work out for 80 minutes and finish the week at a 1:20 average:
    -Eat between 8 and 6:
    -Eat diner at the table:
    -Invest 15 minutes in professional development:
    -Invest 30 minutes on home duties:
    -Read in bed, come on get it together:

    Well, I did well all day yesterday until hubby and I decided to go on a bowling date. The lanes were booked so we waited in the bar until a lane opened. Needless to say I had a bit too much to drink and hence had a snack I normally wouldn’t have. I only ended up a little in the red, still within maintenance, but not the goal. Today is his birthday so there is a big dinner planned at home, made by me & the kids. Goal today is moderation.

    JFT - Sunday Jan 17
    Scale 200.2
    1L of water
    Log all food

    I came home from work Thursday and Rodger was just finishing the last episode of Cobra Kai season 3. He said “I really think you would enjoy this, I’ll watch it again with you”. We struggle terribly finding shows we both like and want to watch together and since he was offering I took him up on it. So from Thursday evening around 5 until last night we have watched all 3 seasons of Cobra Kai and all 3 Karate Kid movies. I never do this, but it actually has helped my back and hips just doing nothing.

    Today I am going to help a friend, her Mom needs to go into care and she only has a little over 2 weeks to get her Mothers apartment emptied out and cleaned. She is an only child and the only one that can do it.

    This goes against our restrictions right now, but I think the is an extenuating circumstance. I know I’m negative and I know my friend is negative because we are tested weekly at work. Her Mother hasn’t left her apartment since I took her for groceries in November so we should be good.

    That sounds painful! But no, no swab tips got stuck. I just accidently pushed any earwax down towards my eardrum. Which is now all blocked

    Thank you for the warning though!

    Yeah the ear drops I got basically do that, it's an oil based medicine so it's meant to soak in and soften any ear wax so it should come away itself. It sounds so gross lmao
    Ash was disgusted 😂😂 asking if I EVER cleaned my ears LMFAO. Now I'm wishing I never had!

    JFT 1/17 Sun.
    1) Church 9:00 :smiley:
    2) Walk dog :mrgreen: roads decent 3.74 mi happy dog & happy me
    3) Move hourly
    4) Net cals zero / 14c water
    5) Laundry / water herbs & houseplants / prep lunch, snacks, water bottle & overnight oats / declutter 15 min. / one more chore?
    6) UNPLUG 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / 6:00 alarm (treadmill before work)

    Didn't post goals Sat. since stayed quite busy at home. Slow start to day, happy to ease into things while hubby slept. Didn't walk dog b/c roads were sloppy snow that melted & I was nervous of slippery spots (I've had enough falls to know). Instead of a "workout" I undecorated real tree, put decorations in basement & with hubby hauled tree to curb, he & I took down fake tree & hubby put in basement, I packed up last two creches & vacuumed all downstairs rooms. All before watching Packers in playoffs. @PackerFanInGB Wasn't that a fantastic game?! Sure was great to see fans in the bowl. Later, I reorganized in family & living rooms, and decluttered some. Good, productive day.

    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!
    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 continuing to log / Tour de Northeast WI virtual challenge: cover distance from Oshkosh to Gills Rock (139 miles) 1.1.21 - 3.31.21
    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.

    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI

    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    Today: 190.0

    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), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
    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.
    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. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Check on appts for drs. 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 feel so adrift right now.
    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.
