    Yesterday was a decent day, I managed to stay in the green which is a rare occurrence lately! As such I lost 3 of the 4lb of presumably water weight that I'd put on over Easter. Nice to go down so quickly, means hopefully I didn't do as much damage as I thought!

    Also had a good day as we finally got around to getting our mortgage in principle done! This now means we can go and look at houses and estate agents will take us seriously as we have proof that banks will lend us some money. This of course now means we have to get off our backsides and actually look at houses, the idea of which stresses me out quite a lot but I'm just going to keep reminding myself that (a) we're very lucky to be in a position to buy (b) we are not in a rush so we can take our time and not feel pressured to buy something we are not happy with.

    Yesterday's goals:
    - Log everything I eat and drink :)
    - Be in the green :)
    - Drink four bottles of water :)I did just down one as I'd only drunk three, but I'm going to count it
    - Do something positive to improve mood after work :)


    Today's goals will be simple again:

    - Log everything I eat and drink
    - Be in the green
    - Drink four bottles of water
    - Stick to food plan

    JFT Wednesday

    - Up early to take V to school (S had an early workout) :smiley:
    - Weigh :smiley:
    - Train Mark since Jennifer is out. Good that I came in.😁
    - Do some stats/CUSUM work :smiley:
    - Check voltage requirements for new equipment :smiley: Grr... don't have a 230V

    - Ride or walk😕
    - Log food😀
    - Bed by 11:30😀

    Have a stellar day y'all!

    Yesterday was kind of sucky. I are too little sitting the day and was starving by evening. As we eat dinner late, I snacked A LOT. I did manage to barely come in under calories, but my choices were poor leaving me hungry at night. On a good note, I just went to bed early instead of snacking at night. Which meant I stayed within my calorie allotment for the day. Tough being that I didn’t exercise.

    Tonight is date night, so I’ll need to limit calories during the day to prepare for this evening. I’m also not drinking right now as my liver enzymes were high on my last round of blood work. I think it’s fine, but want to verify.

    I don’t have exercise planned today. My exercise time slot is being taken by going out to the boat house and taking inventory of the food stuff so I can shop tomorrow for Saturday’s regatta. Funny thing is, when we started with Crew, I told them I’d help with anything but food. I despise food service, yet here I am. It is only one week while the regular lady is out. I can do anything for one day.

    Here’s to a better day than yesterday...

    JFT Thursday
    - Work from home
    - Pay roofers, who are also fixing our siding yay!
    - Take Apple Watch to see if Cheap Geeks can repair the screen.
    - Boat house
    - Date night -no beer
    - bed by 11:30

    Have an amazing day y’all!

    JFT - Wednesday April 7
    1.5L of water - :/ Again, I had the bottle on my desk but forgot to drink it. I can't get enough in after work without being awake all night
    Log all food - :) Every ugly bite of it, scale was up again this morning.
    Walk for 15 minutes - :) I managed 10 again. I think I may have done too much Tuesday night as my back and hips were sore last night.

    JFT - Thursday April 8
    1.5L of water
    Log all food
    Walk for 15 minutes

    @cschmitz110515 - Happy anniversary to your parents!

    @pridesabtch - I don't eat until around 12 or 1 on most days and quit around 9-930 in the evening. This seems to work best for me, I truly am not willing to give up the evening snacking right now, so I try to save some calories for it. I need to reign in the snacking though.

    Came to work early to try to get some stuff done, I should get at it.

    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

    JFt, Thursday
    1. mindful eating .. no nitetime snacks :) Even though it is only 8 pm .. I am coloring my hair, and going to clean house, so that will keep me busy. We had a late dinner ... and the key .. I have my water bottle that I am carrying with me. When I drink water, I tend to not snack as much. Gee.. .thinks that should be a wake up to me that I am really not hungry, but thirsty!
    2. concentrate on water :) Had to help hubby with pc boards .. so its sit down work. But it is a rainy day.. so I think I filled my water bottle 4x already .. so well over what I need.
    3. listen to podcast :) -- I gave myself a smily, because after I am finished with my hair and cleaning, I am going to grab my ipad and listen to some podcasts. Been tired all day ... so good way to end the day.
    4. other: go for walk :) Got in 4 miles this morning before the rain; work on pc boards :) happy hubby; , laundry >:) = will do tomorrow, unless I start a load tonite yet, scrub kitchen and bathroom floors :) going to do this while coloring in hair sets;, start business expense bookkeeping >:) . Dinner will be leftover scalloped potatoes and ham.. plan a lite lunch :) But put in 2 chicken tenderloins also since not that much leftovers.


    JFT, Friday
    1. mindful eating .. think about what I am eating, and why. Am I really hungry, or just thirsty. This pertains mostly to evening snacking. I do great all day .. its the evenings that are the worse for me. Action: Brush teeth, go downstairs, distract myself and wait 15 minutes; drink water
    2. concentrate on 8+ c water
    3. listen to podcast ... do this if I am tired instead of eating
    4. work in the yard; go for a walk; laundry; start business expenses;
    5. friday weigh myself .. no matter what the scale says

    @jeschepp: what a fun job to do wedding cake tastings! And congrats on the long run .. great job!
    @bookmeister - great job losing those 3 pounds so quickly! And congrats on the house hunting! I can still remember when hubby and I looked for houses ... 43 years ago! While frustrating to find just the one we wanted, and could afford, it is so wonderful when you do find that home! Nice to see you posting also .. we missed you!
    @cschmitz110515 -- what lovely family pictures! Thank you for sharing!
    @ pridesabtch -- great job going to bed to stop the snacking! That is a win win. I have to remember this for myself .. many times, I am not hungry, just thirsty or tired.
    @Bex - love the chocolate teapot! I have never seen anything like that! So cute.. and I bet it was good to!

    Successfully lost pound 4/4 of Easter weight gain, so back to where I was! I'm going to attribute this to my increased water consumption 'flushing out' the sodium - thanks for the reminder that drinking more water can help get rid of water weight more quickly @TerriRichardson112 ! It's made a big difference to my morale getting rid of it this quickly.

    Good day yesterday - got lots done at work, had a fun post-work call with colleagues (who I really miss!) and I was also very happy with the boyfriend as when I got off the call I found that he had been really proactive and found some houses to look at. There's been a little bit of tension between us as I've been feeling like I've been doing a bit more of the work on the mortgage etc - perhaps unfairly - so I was really pleasantly surprised when he'd gone and proactively done stuff. Looked through them together and I think we found one that is worth looking at! It's not quite what we are looking for but it's actually below our budget so in theory we could spend the rest of the budget making modifications to get it as we want it. That's more faff than I want really, but it's worth a look anyway, got to start somewhere!

    Anyway, yesterday's goals:
    - Log everything I eat and drink :)
    - Be in the green :#Not so much, I had a post-work drinks call with my colleagues and drank quite a lot more than I was planning to (got a bit carried away...) Ended up 350 over
    - Drink four bottles of water :)Albeit I have just basically downed the last one (again)
    - Stick to food plan :|Went a lot over on the drinking, but despite this did manage to resist extra snacking which is a reasonable achievement actually

    Today's goals:

    - Log everything I eat & drink
    - Stick to food & drink plan
    - Drink four bottles of water

    Happy Friday everyone!

    As I said, this process is full of anomalies, with frequent plateaus, and surprises. After hovering around 145 for months, and despite Easter indulgences, the scale is slowly moving down again.

    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!

    Terri 🦄

    @cschmitz110515 -- WOW! Your parents must have been young when they married. Lovely family pictures! 🥰 The cake!
    @ pridesabtch -- going to bed to stop the snacking is a great strategy.
    @Bex953172 — 😍 chocolate teapot! Such fun!
    @mytime6630 - you are doing so well with the distractions to break the cycle. And your encouragement and support means a lot to us. Thank you for being you.

    JFT Wednesday

    WFTY: Persistence. I did run this morning. Just feeling really discouraged.

    Why so discouraged? Is it just the running or in general? I think you are doing great with activity.

    In general. Sometimes feelings are like that. I kind of meant it as "I did The Good Thing this morning, got up early and ran two miles, and yet I still feel really discouraged." Emotions aren't always rational, though in this case I think it's related to the demands of my job. Lately, teaching takes so much out of me, mentally, emotionally, and organizationally, that at the end of the school day I'm drained and it's hard to be creative or productive or even just enjoy anything.

    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    End of January: 189.8
    End of February: 190.0
    Today: 194.2

    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), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie), Hood Feminism (Mikki Kendall).
    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. Open Wordpress in Safari.
    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. There HAVE been times when the goal wasn't just to make it to the next mini-break. These days it takes everything I have just to make it to the end of each class period.
    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 Thursday
    - Work from home :smiley:
    - Pay roofers, who are also fixing our siding yay! :smiley:
    - Take Apple Watch to see if Cheap Geeks can repair the screen. :smiley:
    - Boat house :smiley:
    - Date night -no beer :smiley:
    - bed by 11:30 :smiley:

    Have an amazing day y’all!

    Funny I thought I had failed a few goals yesterday because I hadn't exercised, but I guess that was planned and I just got thrown off by my evening adventures. Somehow I find myself in charge of food for the regatta tomorrow. Luckily the lady who normally does it was able to help me figure things out yesterday. Breakfast is eggs, turkey bacon, pancakes and fruit. There are snacks available during non meal times. Then dinner is chicken fajitas. Doesn't sound like much, but there are 29 kids and the parents are able to eat too. Anyway we shopped and loaded the food trailer.

    I did go over calories yesterday, but only by 20 and I don't really even count going over by less than 100.

    No real plans for the evening, the kids are doing their own things until about 7:00 or 8:00. That leaves time for exercise, but not sure what type I'll do. Hopefully I'll do something and not just lay on the couch. It will help if I make it a goal.

    Anyway...

    JFT Friday

    - Weigh :smiley:
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Revise documents, yawn
    - Exercise, walk or ride
    - Shower
    - Maybe dinner out with hubby
    - Log food
    - Bed by 11:30

    Have a stellar day y'all!

    I don't know how I did yesterday, probably bad, I got 10k steps though, only had to walk to pharmacy 3 times, Asda once and the petrol station, 😂

    But today I've woke up with a headache. Im not prone to headaches at all. So when I do get one (to me) they're really bad lol and I know I'll be grumpy all day from it, especially around the kids because they just don't stop talking or stop being noisy (which is fine, they're kids!) but it doesn't go well with a headache.
    So I'm gonna take some ibuprofen and put my ear phones in I think.
    It didn't help I had to get up at 7am just to get a food delivery because it was the only slot left.

    So I'm not gonna post goals today, but I just feel like I've got a lot to do in the house. The washing has been on a stand still for a week. And the pots have reached critical level 😂

    I've also only just read the news (it's 1pm here) to find out Prince Philip has died. Which is pretty sad, feel sorry for the Queen.

    Anyways have a nice day everyone x

    -1999 calories. Still have work to do to get my April averaged back below 2000. One day of overeating makes a difference. Making progress on this front but I'm not there.

    Is it Friday already? Slept in Thursday morning and awoke to a cheery text from my mom encouraging me to get down to the beach to enjoy the beautiful day. So I doubled down on getting my work done and never got around to posting goals. I did, however, manage to get out and walk on the boardwalk for an hour.

    It’s been nice to have a lighter teaching load this week, allowing me to take longer walks and decompress a bit. Now the trick will be keeping up with my exercise commitment during the hectic weeks ahead.

    Wednesday 4/7
    • Quick grocery trip - X
    • Complete “paperwork” for Fall ’21 course assignment - √
    • Grading (It never really ends.) – Nope.
    • Walk! - √ - 90 min on hilly terrain

    JFT Friday 4/9
    • Email testing reminders for College Readiness students – Done!
    • Get those groceries!
    • Walk
    • Straighten the house for the weekend
    • Score diagnostic test for new tutoring group

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    JFT - Thursday April 8
    1.5L of water - :/
    Log all food - :)
    Walk for 15 minutes - :/

    JFT - Friday April 9
    1.5L of water
    Log all food
    Walk for 15 minutes

    I worked from 7am to 8pm yesterday so didn't get any walking in, and again I forgot to drink water sitting on my desk. I also forgot to really eat all day so the scale is staying pretty static right now.

    @Bex953172 - Love the teapot! What a great idea. I just read that Prince Philip passed away, I thought of the Queen as well. My Grandmother got me very interested in the Royal Family when I was young. She had 3 or 4 large scrapbooks full of news articles on them and told me frequently of watching the Queen's coronation.

    @cschmitz110515 - What a lovely idea to replicate their wedding cake. Your parents look young for being married 65 years.

    @bookmeister86 - House hunting is exciting.

    @pridesabtch - That's a lot of people to prepare food for, I hope you have help at the regatta.

    Our payroll project is a complete disaster, I fear it's going to be delayed again.

    I should get to work.
