    @WellingTX - I used Map My Walk app when I was walking it would tell me how far I had walked at each km, more often than not hearing that would make me want to add another km. I soon learned what routes would get me to 5K and then I focussed on speed.
    I am hoping that by the time the ice melts and it’s safe to walk here I will be cleared from physio to start again.
    Currently I don’t have the strength to even do 10 reps of the exercises, I can only do about 7-8.

    @PackerFanInGB - What is one small change I can make today to help with my weight loss? I will wear jeans vs. leggings or sweatpants, which will help me pay attention to whether I'm eating too much by the way the waistband feels.
    ☝️ I wore my dress pants that are too tight this week. I was so uncomfortable all day, but it made me eat better and think of my choices.
    I didn’t eat chips or French fries since last Sunday and the highest number of calories in the red was 458, it has been much more than that a lot lately.

    @ZizzyBumble - 😂 I can see that being the issue at my house too. Try to do something to make it better and it makes it worse. Fortunately it’s just freezer space.

    @Bex953172 - that’s a terrible stage, hope she outgrows it soon.
    I had 5 people to wish a Happy Birthday to yesterday. One of them was my Godson. He turned 35! He was the first baby I ever loved. I was 17 when he was born. I thought I felt old when he turned 17. I don’t even want to think of it now. 😂
    I use him as the standard to decide if someone is “a kid” in my world. So I guess the kids now are 35 or younger.

    We are going to the Restore to be there when they open. Then I have physio. She is talking about blading today. I googled it and it doesn’t sound as terrible as I was envisioning thankfully.

    Oh man in your world Im still a child for the next 6 years lmaoooo

    @Bex953172 - I’m not sure whether to say sorry or woohoo! You’ll never catch up though. You’ll always be 7 years older than him. He’ll be 50 and I’ll be 67 and he’ll still be the metric.

    JFT, Saturday, 2/26
    1. log all food :)
    2. concentrate on water .. 8+ glasses water RED CUP CHALLENGE FOR THE REST OF FEBRUARY AND MARCH :):) Unlike a lot of days where I start out with a diet coke.. this morning, I started out with water. I drank 4 cups of water!! Ate breakfast, and drank 4 more cups before I had my one diet coke. And I felt so good all day. Not sure if the water is why, or just a day where I felt good.. helps that the sun was out and it is close to 60 degrees! But ... I worked in the yard from 10:30 until almost 5:30! Got most of my flower beds cleaned up, raked a ton of leaves that cover my beds during the winter ... bagged up 14 bags until I ran out of bags! Then planted 20 little tree seedlings.. and took a break in that to take a short ride in the car with hubby. I wish everyday I would feel this good and get this much done!
    3. only 1 diet coke :)
    4. mindful eating :)
    5. 5 fruits and veggies :)
    6. remember my why .... to look better in my clothes, to have more confidence .. to wear nice clothes WHEN covid restrictions are lifted and we go see our son, to have more energy. :) Doing things in the yard reminds me again of why I want to stay fit. I love gardening, and so many my age cannot get up and down to weed, plant etc. I never want to give this up!
    7. go for a walk :'( Was going to walk after dinner, but our daughter came out. We lite the firepit, and sat outside. .. much better than walking. I can walk tomorrow.
    8. Plan the entire days food in the morning ... that helps me, because if I know what I am going to eat for dinner, I can plan my lunch better :) I told hubby I was going to start doing this .. we dicuss over breakfast what he wants for dinner. I give him choices of what I feel like making ... things I have on hand, or easy things I want to make if its a busy day. Today was just a baked potato and trader joes meatballs and a salad .. a easy meal to prepare.
    9. Personal Challenge: 5 minute rule for nitetime snacking .. when I have the urge to grab a snack, set a timer, WAIT 5 MINUTES. Distract myself, but I have to wait 5 minutes before eating anything. :) My nite is not over.. its 9pm, but I have my water next to me, and will eat a apple later if hungry. But .. I' m not really hungry. Gee ... you think the water has anything to do with that!

    JFT, Sunday 2/28
    Today marks the 43rd year that we moved into our house! I was 27 yrs old, pregnant with our daughter!

    1. log all food
    2. concentrate on water .. 8+ glasses water RED CUP CHALLENGE FOR THE REST OF FEBRUARY AND MARCH
    3. only 1 diet coke
    4. mindful eating
    5 fruits and veggies

    Keeping this short because I am beat. Went on a nice long walk with the gorgeous weather. Had a great loss week 1, which I usually do (and then lose nothing week 2 lol). Definitely motivating. Was able to have my treat meal and stay in the green, but let a few other goals go. For me it's not about being perfect but being consistent and making more healthy choices than unhealthy ones.

    JFT Saturday:
    Red Cup Challenge! 80 oz water ❌
    stay in the green ✅
    meet all serving recommendations for 5 food groups ❌ lots of carbs and not enough veggies/fruits!
    30 minutes exercise ✅ smashed it!
    screens off 8:30 ❌
    track food, exercise, water and post on JFT ✅

    JFT Sunday:
    80 oz water
    stay in the green
    meet all serving recommendations for 5 food groups
    30 minutes exercise
    screens off 8:30
    track food, exercise, water and post on JFT

    @Snowflake1968 nooo that sounds so stressful! Hope you have a solution soon!

    Saturday 27 February

    Log 😊 have pre-logged
    Stay in the green - pizza and wine for dinner will make this challenging. 😊 according to my Fitbit but I’m think it overestimates calories burnt during exercise
    5 fruit and veg 👿
    Water 👿
    Fitbit exercise goals plus extra 😊
    Weigh 😊 trend ↔️

    I’m struggling to believe that we are at the end of February already. It’s nice to have more daylight and to see the beginnings of spring with catkins and snowdrops coming out.

    I've been slacking again!
    Just been busy the last few days but that's no excuse for not posting goals!

    So Sunday

    - Get the last few pots clean
    - Change washing over
    - Take girls out to the park
    - Chill out time paint/read
    -
    I also wanted to ask your thoughts on something.. I have a mirror that I'm painting the frame of. I have two ideas but not sure which to do!
    ah2tfl7pp85v.jpg
    ^^^^ That's the mirror, I've now fully painted it white as a base coat.
    So you see how it has a flower in each corner and then (ill just call them vines for simplicity) connecting each one.

    My first idea is sponging on paint from white at the bottom and fading upwards gradually into a darker colour (maybe a blue-teal sort of colour)

    My second idea is to paint it, so I was thinking yellow petals, brown centre of the flower (bit like a sunflower cause I like them) and then paint the vine bits shades of green. It sounds rubbish the way I'm describing it but I reckon it'd look okay when I was done so long as I get the right shades.

    What do you all reckon?

    Meh. Have to do something new...

    For Saturday, get active

    -Grateful for my progress. Shoveling/chipping snow and ice I slipped and went down Thursday morning. Neighbor walking her dog was present as I let out a significant curse. Good side is that I wasn't injured and was able to get on firmer footing and get up. No question a year ago I would have, at best, not been able to get up and at worst would have hurt myself.
    -2100 calories. Saturday night: 3858. Started off track and never got back on.
    -Work out for 90 minutes: Worked out for 39 minutes but didn't walk
    -Invest 15 minutes in professional development: Nope
    -Invest 15 minutes in personal development: Two YouTube videos on food tips. Key take away was to find what works for me. I could live on macaroni and cheese and chocolate chip cookies. It would be a stretch, long journey to move to kale being a favorite.
    -Invest 30 minutes in home duties: Kept up with my stuff but missed cleaning the stove top. Shoveled and chipped ice. Making progress.
    -Eat dinner at the table. Get back in the habit: Nope
    -Already broke my 8:00 commitment but can still stay on track for the day: Started early but did cut off by 6:00


    For Sunday. new day. End of the week and end of the month. It's an opportunity to improve not a reason to start tomorrow.

    -Grateful for many influences. I've spend hours with Tony Robbins while working out. I've been struggling executing on this one but "do what you're supposed to do" is simple but foundational.
    -1900 calories. Don't give in to a lost week:
    -Work out for 90 minutes. Get active:
    -Invest 15 minutes on personal development:
    -Invest 15 minutes on professional development:
    -Invest 30 minutes on home duties:
    -Eat dinner at the table and don't snack on the couch:
    -Eat between 8 and 6:

    (When anxiety hits, drink stress tea before grabbing a snack!!)

    I'm shifting gears a bit. Dieting while attempting to use your brain for higher academics counteracts each other. The headaches I get from dieting hinder the use of my brain power in performing at my academic standards. Therefore, I will keep logging but not overwhelm myself with the dieting aspect until after May. This semester is crucial and I can handle a few more months of inconsistent dieting in the name of academic success. If everything gets too overwhelming, I might need to stop logging for stress reducing reasons; we'll see.

    Yesterday I took my rest day (which I'll switch with Monday, my scheduled rest day). I needed to be schoolwork productive and I was.

    I have an important exam Monday but I should have the time to exercise and prepare. That's the plan.


    Have a blessed Sunday my friends!!🌷🤓👍

    Had a gorgeous day yesterday and never logged in, although I did log my food. Dog and I went for 4 mile walk & saw so many people outside. That's what happens here when it's sunny & 45F in Feb. When we got home, I had to wipe her belly & legs from tramping through all the snow melt & wet snow.

    Today I've spent a fair amount of time on my computer, tracking & watching my oldest brother complete in his 31st American Birkebeiner. Usually it's this huge x-country ski race in northern Wisconsin but this year they held it over 5 days to socially distance everyone. No live spectators allowed either. The 2021 course was changed but still 43K for classic skiers like my brother. Fortunately I registered to track his times at checkpoints, and watched live video of him starting, midpoint & finish. The start was snowing like mad, and partly sunny at the finish. So impressed that he does this year after year. He's 10 days away from his 61st bday.

    Late to post but the usual goals anyway...

    JFT 2/28 Sun.
    1) Church 9:00 :smiley:
    2) Walk dog 3.7 mi in dreary misty weather but not icy! :smiley: happy dog & happy me
    3) Track Steve in Birkie :smiley: only 6 hours & 6 min. LOL
    4) Move hourly
    5) Net cals zero / 14c water
    6) Laundry incl. bedding / prep lunch, snacks, water bottle & overnight oats / water herbs / other chore?
    7) Meditation app / unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 6:00 alarm (x-train before work)

    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
    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.

    Age 63, 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

    11/04 = 163.0 wow, really surprised at this, daily fluctuations very up and down this week
    11/11 = 164.5 this is temporary b/c very high sodium yesterday
    11/18 = 162.0 big surprise, especially b/c I weigh myself daily and didn't see this all week
    11/25 = 163.0 no surprise after 2 no-logging-food days (parade day and Thanksgiving), just glad not worse
    12/02 = 161.0 Jingle Bell 5K day / 44:37 chip time & ave. pace 14:22 & very happy!

    01/06/18 = 159.0 New Year's Eve hubby & I splurged on treats & beverages (at home), and I did not log...totally worth it!
    01/13 = 157.0 big surprise! Yesterday evening, walked in Frenzy on the Fox 5K in 47:26 & pace 15:19. Very happy with my time, wore layers of clothes in 10 degrees & NNW 12 mph wind, fun event.
    01/20 = 156.5
    01/27 = 156.5 maintaining / not a bad thing
    02/03 = sick / no weigh in
    02/10 = 152.5 unhealthy loss due to illness / I know weight will go back up & I'm totally fine with that
    02/17/18 = 153.0 thrilled with annual physical on 2/15/18: BP 110/68, pulse 64 and BMI 26.14 :star:

    03/03 = 155.5 oops / still lower than before I was sick
    03/10 = 153.5 back on track
    03/17 = 152.5
    03/24 = 153.0 evening snacks & two days straight of 8 hr seminars (+ lots of sitting)
    03/31 = 153.5 pre-10K spaghetti supper night before / Badger State Brewing 10K 1:30:28.82 and average pace 14:35 :smiley:
    04/07 = 154.5 ack ~ ate Easter candy most evenings

    04/21 = 153.5 after such weird week & daily weight fluctuations, happy to maintain
    04/28 = 152.0
    05/05 = 153.5 kinda stalled three months + feeling hungry more often ~ since w/i 10# of goal, changed MFP setting to lose 1/2 lb. per week & see how it goes
    05/12 = 153.5 ok with this ~ think changing my MFP setting, and having more net calories to play with, is agreeing with me ~ I'm not so hungry all the time

    @Bex953172 - 😍 the mirror. When I saw it I thought it would look good with gold sponged on it, as it looke quite baroque and ornate. But the colours you suggest could work. Either way, if you don't like it you can always paint over it, and change it.
