    Hour commitment - getting ready to leave this morning. Going to have my coffee stuff early. Haven't decided yet whether to have an early lunch or not. We'll see. Usually better than having to stop.

    Recap R 12/16
    1) X-trained before work (weights/circuit) :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :smiley: 9.2K 14/14 boom!
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water :neutral: green 67 but protein LOW, fiber good, sodium not horrible, 14c water
    4) GA-IT review User Privilege Report (pg 14 of 46) :) pleased I got thru pg 34 / Facebook Live 12:00 :) / put freebie calendars out for co-workers :) most taken already even with limited staff in office / catch up some emails? :neutral: not worse
    5) Mail Christmas cards / 6:30 choir rehearsal / wash dishes / meal plan & grocery list / another ta-da? yes TA-DA = 4/5
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren late & too tired / Calm app / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work? yes) = 3/6

    JFT F 12/17
    1) Walked dog 3.8 mi before work :smiley: happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories zero / 14c water
    4) GA-IT finish review of User Privilege Report / Build a Gnome class 12:00 / review last user report, thankfully much smaller / perform user per system count / set-up & write F&Ds / update Project Status s/s / submit PRO, KRO, PAR s/s / emails?
    5) Meal plan & grocery list / register for Frenzy on the Fox 5K / register for Seroogy's Valentine 5K / any other ta-da on Fri is bonus
    6) Unplug 9:30 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm Sat. (walk dog then winter market)

    Since roads are again snow & ice free, I was able to get outside & walk dog before work. After record high temp two days ago, temp was 18F (-7.8C) so I wore my winter layers and was fine. Still beats the treadmill. Thankfully high winds have subsided. Dog was thrilled to be out walking, wore her blaze orange vest (not very warm) and didn't notice the cold until near the end. We may have snow tonight, so have to wait and see what roads will be like. Hopefully, won't be enough to keep me and dog from walking.

    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.

    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

    How do you even cope with temperatures that low?! I don't know how to convert F to C. But you saying it's -7.8 is beyond me lol. It was 2C the other day and I couldn't handle it at all lol. Today was warmer maybe 6C but I still can't feel my toes after the school run!!

    I just watched Spiderman with Marley... I never knew how difficult it would be to watch a film with a kid who (possibly) has ADHD. In fact, after the film I'm more convinced she does. Shes done nothing but fidget and not stopped talking and I doubt she was even watching the film πŸ˜‚
    I've just had to endure the whole film of her calling him batman.

    It's been another busy week, but the end is in sight - only 3 more classes next week (two on Monday and one on Wednesday). Of course, then I'll have a mountain of final papers to grade, but I've got some time to get those done. With my Christmas shopping still incomplete and my sister's family coming to stay for a few days, I've been desperately trying to multitask. It doesn't help that Covid rates are skyrocketing here in NJ and NY, and plans to see my sons and their families are up in the air. My husband keeps reminding me not to let the stress get to me, but it's tough. I just need to breathe. And make sure I get enough sleep.

    I haven't been logging, but I am trying to keep an eye on what I eat. I was doing pretty well until yesterday when I just said the heck with it and went to Shake Shack for a burger (The Smoke Shack with bacon, cheese, cherry peppers and Shack sauce). Decided I needed a pomegranate yuzu lemonade instead of a water to wash it down. Snagged a few of my daughter's fries as well. Rebellion or stress relief? Maybe a bit of both.

    My goal for the weekend is to make decent food choices and keep the stress under control.

    Hi all, just checking in.
    This has been a crazy up and down week of emotions, ending in us getting to have a place to move to (instead of homeless). I've been busy doing things related to the purchase (and getting the guy to respond to finish the paperwork), and the move. We'll be broke when we get there in a few months, but at least we'll have a place to stay rent free.
    I haven't been doing as well exercising, and more relaxed on calories. Still trying to not go too far over the goal (did poorly yesterday; just threw up my hands as I was too stressed out).

    I want to be a few more tens down (20 lbs?) by the time we move. I need to be the best I can to help my husband in moving and building our shelter before the fall storms hit. That's our year 1 goal. I think I'll be blogging about it, carefully, as I want to keep my privacy.

    Someone mentioned cold. It has been an unusually mild winter here in the Inland Northwest USA, until yesterday, when it managed to slush snow and freeze solid. With the planned "budget cuts" (we are going to let you down with needed service in predictable area weather) the roads were a disaster to the point of "shelter in place" being broadcast to everybody. This in a place that's used to 14F or colder. To those who can still go for walks outside with your dogs, oh I wish!! I needed a "tow" from my northern husband to get to the storefront (even they had neglected their normal sanding of the walkway).

    Honestly, I don't know what I'm going to do about goals and routine. There is just SO MUCH to do before then but I want to keep going with weight loss. I know I really do better with a more focused routine. A big list is necessary, but something more focused helps me want to keep trying. So I'll think about it and just try. Try.

    Have a good evening!

    I haven't been exercising or cutting back on calories as much (though trying to keep it limited) this past week because of stress and just trying to prepare for something (move, nomadic, what?). Last two weeks have been date-shy as bad news/events tend to always happen in the past two weeks (or next week) and last year was hell during that time. Thankfully nothing serious has happened so far and I actually had a happy birthday. Not a single bad news that day. End of week, we finally found out we are in fact moving to a place, not going to be nomadic so that stress is relieved. We'll be pretty much broke when we get there, but we will have a place to camp on while we build shelter. Thank God.

    Having grown up in Wisconsin, US, I'm used to winter weather with snow & cold. Lots of choices for outer wear and dressing for the weather is key. There're outdoor winter sports if interested. One of my favorites is snowshoeing. That can really get the blood pumping, and way better than feeling trapped indoors all winter. I just looked up Dec temps where I live: average high is 29F (-1.6C) and average low is 14F (-10C). January averages are a bit lower and Feb. about the same as Dec. Btw, I use a converter on the internet for fahrenheit to celsius, I never remember the formula.

    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 64, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI
    UG (need to be realistic): maintain 150

    1) Winter market (local farmers/vendors indoors) :smiley: fresh salmon for supper, beef for stew tomorrow, fresh eggs & other goodies... bought a beautiful necklace of onyx, agate & tiger eye made by one of my favorite vendors, not planned but I couldn't resist
    2) Meal plan / grocery shop / bread shop = 3/3
    3) Move hourly :) 9.3K 12/14
    4) Baked salmon, beets, salad & banana chocolate chip bread for supper / net calories zero / 12c water :p if not for evening peanut M&Ms... -236, sodium decent, fiber ok, protein excellent, 10c
    5) Drive around & look at Christmas lights with hubby, SIL & dog :smiley:
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 7:30 alarm (9:00 church then walk dog) = 2/5

    JFT Sunday 12/19
    1) 9:00 church :smiley:
    2) Walk dog
    3) Move hourly
    4) Make beef stew / net calories zero / 12c water
    5) Sheets & towels in laundry / wash dishes / another ta-da
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 6:00 alarm (x-train before work)

    Few snow showers yesterday are now packed snow & ice on roads in our neighborhood and surrounding area, so I will walk dog at nearby technical college. Those roads and parking lots are decent (I drove thru on way home from church to check). Dog will be happy. Me too. Temp is 27F with wind chill feel of 16F. Time to get my winter layers on. :smiley:

    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:Β GratitudeΒ ~ be mindful of & appreciate my many blessings
