    @cschmitz110515 -- it's funny, but when I've locked the keys in the trunk a few times, I know that I'm doing it the last foot or so of the trunk closing, but I can't change course at that point. It is frustrating! But a part of life...

    Hour commitment - finished coffee stuff and about to have a French lesson. Now I won't eat again until after 12 pm.
    JFT for 10/13 (today): ✔️
    1) Dessert ok
    2) Peanut butter ok
    3) Don't weigh again until Thursday 10/14
    4) No hard cheese today (trying not to have cheese everyday)
    5) No more tootsie pops (bad for my teeth)

    Hour commitment - After I finish my Berry vibes, I won't eat again until after 5 pm. Can still have my metamusal. No more dessert today and no more turkey patties. Also no more of the potato salad our neighbor gave us. I had a bite to taste it, but I don't need more.

    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.

Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board?

    WFTY: Persistence. Another fast day, and tomorrow is full as well. Yikes!
    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.

    JFT Wednesday 13th October

    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green yes, just
    Back exercises no, too uncomfortable today
    Foot exercises yes
    No snacks none
    Walk 50 minutes
    Gardening a little, until rained off
    Paperwork/Mum's bills bills are paid, but nothing filed away yet

    I'm having family for evening meal today, will try to pre-log it. The only way I will stay in the green is to miss breakfast, I'm not enjoying this!

    I don't think changing my meal times works for me, for one thing it interferes with when I need to take medication every morning. I missed breakfast and then evening meal was a lot later than normal to accommodate family. I had increasing stomach pain through the day and by the time of evening meal I was so uncomfortable I didn't really want it. Never mind, I had small portions and no cream, as I knew that would make me worse, so calories were okay.

    JFT Thursday 14th October

    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises
    No snacks
    Walk
    File paperwork

    Happy Wednesday y'all!

    Winner, winner chicken dinner... all smiley faces yesterday. I gotta say the ride almost didn't happen because I just wanted to lay down when I got home. Instead I had an apple and headed out. I was falling asleep on the drive and considered turning around several times. Instead I got on my bike and decided to try. I perked up a bit once on the bike and managed almost an hour. I'm glad I did it, but also very tired today. Luckily today is a rest day & date night. I will stay within maintenance, but not worry so much about types of food I eat, and I will have a few drinks. Other than that today is just work and doing mom's bills.

    JFT Thursday

    - Weigh in
    - Work From home
    - Left over shrimp for lunch
    - Meetings
    - visit mom & do her bills
    - date night
    - log food

    Happy almost Friday y'all!

    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!


    @bookmeister86 <> So please to to see you posting again. Pity about the house, but hang in there.

    JFT - Friday Oct 15
    1.5L of water
    Log all food
    Walk 15 minutes
    Arm something
    Get active on JFT

    Well the last two days were insane! DH texted me on Wednesday that he felt a cold coming on. Of course, a cold could be more than a cold at this point in time and I work in long term care so we have to be extra cautious. I had a rapid test kit given to me for a wedding and my birthday but I had left it at our daughters. I had to drive to get it after work, it’s a 3 hour round trip. It was worth it to know he tested negative when he got home from work. He told our daughter he wasn’t pregnant. 😂

    Last night I had ceramics and didn’t get home until late.

    Today I am off to accompany DH to the dietitian. We will both learn I’m sure.
    I then need to take pictures of ornaments and get them posted on our FB page. We have a virtual market tomorrow.

    Have a great day everyone

    Happy almost Friday y'all!

    Date night took me slightly over calories, and gave me a temporary bump up in weight, but nothing major. Wings and beer will do that...

    UGHHHHH, my new work responsibilities are certainly stacking up fast. Just gotta keep my mind in check and not let it run amuck. He he he, amuck, amuck, amuck. Oh wait there it goes. Reining it in. Mostly things are good just a tad hectic while I'm learning.

    Kiddo is coming in to town to row tomorrow so I'm baking her some treats to take back to school with her. Each small pepperoni roll is about 115 calories and boy can I toss those back. I gotta stay strong on this one.

    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 & 6.30.21 ~ 7.31.21 accountable ~ 9.1.21 horrible after vacation but recorded ~ 9.30.21 small improvements yay

    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
