    JFT Monday
    1. No candy yes
    2. No cookies yes
    3. Eat under my calorie limit yes
    4. Yoga yes
    5. Fast marching yes
    6. Eat salad yes
    7. Pay storage bill yes

    Straight Yes! Yay! I feel a little guilty because I ate a lot of my exercise calories back. I can do better. I had faux ice cream at the last minute, didn't go over calories, but close, and I'm still not satisfied. Oh well, the feeling will pass. And I should be satisfied with meeting my goals. I'm being a perfectionist again.

    JFT Tuesday
    1. No candy
    2. No cookies
    3. Eat under my calorie limit
    4. Dumbbells 40 reps
    5. Buy groceries

    I read an interesting article in a magazine a few months ago. It was suggested that setting our goals in negative terms about what we’re not going to do was counter intuitive. The brain sees the goal, and concentrates on the action, ignoring the ‘I will not’ bit’. For example
    If you write:
    I will not eat cookies.
    … The brain latches onto the eat cookies and obsesses over them, making it difficult for you to resist them.

    Food for thought?

    Positive Habit development is believed to short-circuit this tendency.

    JFT Monday
    - Early meeting :smiley: (took it at home)
    - Pack some fruit salad :smiley: -
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Work stuff :smiley:
    - Home at 4:30 :smiley:
    - Work on V's room with her :smiley:
    - Put away laundry :(
    - Have V sort through her laundry and thin out the stuff she doesn't wear. The child has more clothes than she knows what to do with. She went through this process with her shoes. There is a brand new pair of Converse (with tags) that she no longer wants. Ughhhh... I don't even think she remembered she had them. :(
    - Watch hockey and eat leftover pizza for dinner :smiley:
    - No alcohol :smiley:
    - Bed by 11:30 (though lately its more like 9:00) :smiley:

    Have a delightful Monday y'all!
    -

    So after working on V's room, I decided laundry and sorting could wait until today. I really don't want her to feel overwhelmed. Anyway, the room is cleaner than it has been in quite some time.

    Today is work, laundry and spin class. Not necessarily in that order. Spin is at 6:00 so laundry may be before and or after... Other than that no real plans for the day. Oh, I packed a lunch and forgot it at home, grrr...

    JFT Tuesday
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Meetings
    - Instrument repair tech coming today
    - Protein bar for lunch
    - Afternoon meetings
    - Home early
    - Nap
    - Laundry
    - Spin
    - Laundry
    - hockey
    - no alcohol
    - bed by 11:30

    Have a great Tuesday y'all!

    I totally agree with this! I try to phrase my goals with 'I will' instead. Recently I have been snacking on a salty sweet (which I love & crave) and tell myself "I will not eat more than one portion". Of course, I eat more than one portion. Maybe if I rephrase to "I will eat one portion & stop." I'll see if that helps.

    About me: Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    64 yrs old
    Reside in Green Bay, WI, USA

    2022 Goals: mainly updates from the last two years
    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 track daily on a separate app (for the visual). 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 ~
    • 1.31.22 forgot to measure & log (DDS 8:20, quick stops at bread store & grocery essentials, then to mom & dad's for her bday)
    • 3.1.22 (still recovering from flu 2.23-2.25)
    • 3.31.22 maintaining not gaining
    • 4.30.22 barely maintaining
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking dog, treadmill in winter, but include weights/my home version of circuit & other x-training
    • Started PT (physical therapy) exercises 1.28.22 due to overuse of arthritic knees
    6) Participate in race or challenge events hopefully fewer virtual this year ~
    • started MapMyWalk app You Vs. the Year 1,022km challenge on Jan. 1
    • Frenzy on the Fox (River Trail) 5K on 1.21.22 ~ untimed event, per MapMyWalk 53.47 & ave. pace 16:30, frigid this year with wind chill at zero
    • registered for Seroogy's Valentine 5K on 2.5.22 ~ medico nixed race b/c inflammation in knee due to overuse & my arthritis = sad me but good for my knee
    • registered for Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 ~ first time in person since 2019
    • will register for Packers 5K when July details announced
    • will register for Bellin Women's Pink Pumpkin 5K when Oct. details announced
    • will register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K when Oct. details announced
    • watch for other events to add
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last two years to be continued
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ keeping this goal as well
    9) Continue to declutter bedroom, home office, former work from home space (a/k/a dining room) and basement
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship

    Have a great day JFTers! :)

    I have a pot roast on the stove for my parents, but we have a Dr appointment at 4:00 so it may not get done. It is frozen solid now. Too late to come to my senses and pick something else. I was hoping that magically there would be more time between groceries and the doctor. Lol 😊

    JFT Tuesday
    1. No candy yes
    2. No cookies yes
    3. Eat under my calorie limit yes
    4. Dumbbells 40 reps yes
    5. Buy groceries yes

    My pot roast came out fine. I'm a very nervous cook. Meanwhile, I had another great day for my goals. Yay!

    JFT Wednesday
    1. No candy
    2. No cookies
    3. Eat under my calorie limit
    4. Yoga
    5. Fast marching
    6. Eat salad
    7. Work on cleaning my room

    I'm okay with two negative goals. It seems to be working for me. I only think about them after certain cues, and those are fading.

    @Snowflake1968 I'm so sorry for your daughter's and your family's loss. You are right, it is very hard to see your children in pain.

    I'm so annoyed with myself. I lost 3lbs in the April challenge on here, and I've put it all back on again. I'm an expert in yoyo-ing up and down. I don't think my meals are over in calories, though I often don't plan ahead, but I've been snacking on biscuits. You'd think I'd have learnt by now that snacking doesn't make me feel better! I'm facing yet another summer annoyed that I'm still a stone overweight because I can't get myself together for long enough to lose it. Sigh, at this rate I'll be on my deathbed still cursing that extra stone.
    I'll have to tackle this in the shop. My willpower isn't strong enough right now to say no, so the biscuits need to not be in my house.

    JFT Wednesday 25th May

    Stay under maintenance
    Only one small snack
    Foot exercises
    Back exercises
    Holiday let laundry (have done the easy stuff, have all the stained stuff left to do)
    Ironing
    Paperwork/bills

    Yet again it's raining and windy, I'm so sick of this chilly weather. I have loads to do in the garden, but I'm not so keen that I'm doing it in the rain, it's meant to be a pleasure!

    May Challenge

    Week 1 180/150
    Week 2 0/150
    Week 3 160/150
    Week 4 64/150
