    @TerriRichardson112 Congratulations! You are so inspiring!

    Recap M 12/13
    1) 8:00 car appt :smiley: ready for winter
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :neutral: 8.2K & 13/14
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water :neutral: -241, horrible sodium, protein excellent, fiber ok,12c water. Bright side: I measured / weighed my leftovers for supper. Daily weigh-in this morning not so bad, thinking my evening activity helped, even though not "exercise".
    4) Submit ROP-BJ for review / submit leave request form for this morning / GA-IT f/u testing / keep up w/ emails = 3/4
    5) Contact Mike re contribution / update & print address labels / decorate tree / boil eggs / wash pots / another ta-da? called mom & dad for lovely 40 min. chat <3 = 4.5/6
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 6:00 alarm (x-train or treadmill before work) = 5/6

    JFT T 12/14
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    2) Net calories zero / 14c water
    3) 9:00 EHN update (Teams) / 12:00 Facebook Live / GA-IT testing / current w/ emails
    4) PRINT address labels / verify transfers / write Christmas cards / wash pots / another ta-da?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 6:00 alarm (x-train or treadmill before work)

    I skipped my workout before work. Again. That's six days in a row. Good thing tomorrow is Just Move It Day at work. That may be the kick in the pants I need to get up early and work out.

    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 & 6.30.21 ~ 7.31.21 accountable ~ 9.1.21 horrible after vacation but recorded ~ 9.30.21 small improvements yay ~ 10.31.21 ~ 11.30.21 slightly better
    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 (228 miles) as many times as possible 6.12.21 - 11.26.21 YAY finished with 460.08 = 2X medal / Packers 5K IN PERSON 7.24.21 48:36 ave. pace 15:39 / Bellin Women's Pink Pumpkin 5K IN PERSON 10.2.21 47:34 ave. pace 15:19 second half pace 14:48 / Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K 10.9.21 in person 52:10 ave. pace 16:48 hill climb 1:44
    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

    I haven't really been posting goals, but am proud of those of you who are. I read the thread daily, but haven't had much time to comment. Things are very busy at work and I tend to do holiday things in the evening. It's been a good month emotionally and the weight can be dealt with later. I'm keeping things mostly in check, but not really logging.

    Thanks for all of the support y'all have given me this year. I truly appreciate and care for everyone on this thread.

    Recap T 12/14
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks :) 8.2K & 13/14
    2) Net calories zero / 14c water :neutral: -330, horrible sodium again, ok-ish fiber, excellent protein, 14c water
    3) 9:00 EHN update (Teams) / 12:00 Facebook Live / GA-IT testing / current w/ emails = 4/4
    4) PRINT address labels / verify transfers / write Christmas cards ~ most done / wash pots / another ta-da? transferred 3 large bags of birdseed into plastic containers in garage, made donation which was matched, prepped mail carrier's gift, folded hubby's work shirts & put away clean laundry TA-DA = 4/5
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (x-train or treadmill before work) :smiley: 6/6

    JFT W 12/15
    1) Treadmill before work :smiley: log on Just Move It site
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks

    Yippee! Early alarm not welcomed, but Just Move It Day at work demanded I respond. 3 miles on treadmill in 58:25 (why is tm harder than normal walking with dog?) and cool down. Even though I dislike the treadmill, happy me.

    @pridesabtch ((hugs))) This can be a really busy time. You're doing great just take it one day at a time!
    @cschmitz110515 I think walking outside is more fun. When exercise is less fun, I look at the clock a lot too.

    Hey everyone hope you're all well!

    @littleblackskirt how are you feeling now? I had to get antibiotics for my cold. When I told the drs that I was coughing for 2 weeks and it started to clear up before it hit me hard again he said it was a viral infection that cleared up but then bacteria must've settled and that's what set it off again. Nearly finished my course now, 2 days left and I'm feeling much better.

    I used to love Xmas as a kid (as most do) but I honestly hate it as a parent. Lol all the organising and presents and when you're on low income its even more stressful.
    We've not bought any presents yet (were going on Friday) but it's just anxiety inducing.
    Don't get me wrong I love seeing the joy on the kids faces and getting them excited for it but it isn't half stressful lol

    Next year I'm definitely starting early!!!

    I've had a good week of freebies though, my friend managed to find me a free bunkbed (funnily enough it was the one we were going to buy from ikea if we couldn't find a suitable second hand one) so that's up and the kids are loving it! And it brings so much space into the room now

    And the same friend also found a free wooden dolls house, it's super heavy but Saskia couldn't get the L.O.L. Playhouse last year and even though it's not L.O.L. i think she'll be made up with it, plus it's gonna last so much longer with it being wooden.

    LOL I love the things I learn in this community! @Bex953172 and @TerriRichardson112 I had to google the phrase "made up" since that is something we don't use in the US (that way). And you both used that phrase this week in your posts. @Bex953172 glad you're feeling better!

    Recap W 12/15
    1) Treadmill before work :smiley: log on Just Move It site
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :smiley: 15.5K & 14/14 boom!
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water :s evening snacking got me -402, fiber & protein excellent, very high sodium, 14c
    4) GA-IT testing / list all time-sensitive flagged emails (annual reporting, training, etc.) / current w/ emails = 3/3
    5) Order bread for Christmas / chop ice under mail box (where in garage is chopper? really, where is it?) / finish Christmas cards / choose 2022 calendars to keep / wash pots / meal plan & grocery list / balance bank accts / update budget s/s / another ta-da? = 6/9 finished putting everything in its place by 9 p.m. & no energy to do more
    6) Unplug 9:00 :| 9:15 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (x-train or treadmill before work) = 3/6

    JFT R 12/16
    1) X-trained before work (weights/circuit) :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water
    4) GA-IT review User Privilege Report (pg 14 of 46) / Facebook Live 12:00 / put freebie calendars out for co-workers / catch up some emails?
    5) Mail Christmas cards / 6:30 choir rehearsal / wash dishes / meal plan & grocery list / another ta-da?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work?)

    Two mornings in a row! Again, early alarm not welcomed, and I could hear the wind howling. Last night we had thunderstorms, very unusual for Dec. and we're under high wind advisory until 5 p.m. I decided instead of listening to the wind or going back to sleep, I should get my carcass out of bed. Dog was excited as she thought she was going walking with me, but I didn't want to in 25+ mph wind. Rain overnight melted all our snow, and roads are safe to walk again, so maybe tomorrow morning walk dog?

    2021 Goals:

    We're leaving tomorrow for 16 days, but I decided yesterday was my last day for JFT until January! But I'll make hour commitments as needed. Thank you for being here.

    Hour commitment: Can have early lunch due to lunch meeting.

    Hour commitment - Just finished early lunch. Now I won't eat again until after 5 pm. Can still have dose of metamusal. Not sure if we're eating dinner early with FIl or not; so could be early.

    LOL I love the things I learn in this community! @Bex953172 and @TerriRichardson112 I had to google the phrase "made up" since that is something we don't use in the US (that way). And you both used that phrase this week in your posts. @Bex953172 glad you're feeling better!

    Recap W 12/15
    1) Treadmill before work :smiley: log on Just Move It site
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :smiley: 15.5K & 14/14 boom!
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water :s evening snacking got me -402, fiber & protein excellent, very high sodium, 14c
    4) GA-IT testing / list all time-sensitive flagged emails (annual reporting, training, etc.) / current w/ emails = 3/3
    5) Order bread for Christmas / chop ice under mail box (where in garage is chopper? really, where is it?) / finish Christmas cards / choose 2022 calendars to keep / wash pots / meal plan & grocery list / balance bank accts / update budget s/s / another ta-da? = 6/9 finished putting everything in its place by 9 p.m. & no energy to do more
    6) Unplug 9:00 :| 9:15 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (x-train or treadmill before work) = 3/6

    JFT R 12/16
    1) X-trained before work (weights/circuit) :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water
    4) GA-IT review User Privilege Report (pg 14 of 46) / Facebook Live 12:00 / put freebie calendars out for co-workers / catch up some emails?
    5) Mail Christmas cards / 6:30 choir rehearsal / wash dishes / meal plan & grocery list / another ta-da?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work?)

    Two mornings in a row! Again, early alarm not welcomed, and I could hear the wind howling. Last night we had thunderstorms, very unusual for Dec. and we're under high wind advisory until 5 p.m. I decided instead of listening to the wind or going back to sleep, I should get my carcass out of bed. Dog was excited as she thought she was going walking with me, but I didn't want to in 25+ mph wind. Rain overnight melted all our snow, and roads are safe to walk again, so maybe tomorrow morning walk dog?

    2021 Goals:

    And I'm made up that I'm feeling a lot more normal ha ha. Still coughing and I know my lungs aren't clear yet, but much better thank goodness. Just as well as I've been babysitting this week (still am tonight, both sons still working late).

    @Bex953172 Christmas as a parent just means lots of extra work! All those extra things to do alongside all the normal things that need done. It's lovely seeing the kids enjoying it, but it's still a lot of work. Until I stopped work 3 years ago I used to work 7 days a week in the run up to Christmas...now I don't work (apart from holiday let) and I still can't fit everything in! I must be doing things slower lol.
    Sounds like you got 2 really good freebies.

    @TerriRichardson112 you have done so well, you are an inspiration :)

    I'm still not counting calories. I lost some weight when I was feeling ill but now my appetite is back it may go back on. I do keep reminding myself that December is not an excuse to eat too many snacks. Got a big grocery food shop delivered today, but it's all put away and the treats will be spread out.

    I'm off to the holiday let tomorrow for a couple of days. I need to paint the newly plastered ceiling. I really don't want to, and it's not the best timing when I have preps to do for Christmas, but I'd like it done in case Covid rules stop me later on like they did last year. I have a booking in January and I don't want to let them down. Calories will be okay as I can only eat what I take with me!
