    Weekend was a blowout, calorie-wise. But I logged best I could, a win in itself. Moving on.

    JFT M 1/17
    1) Dentist 9:00 to check bone density progress :neutral: need more calcium
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Leftovers for supper / more milk & yogurt / net calories zero / 112 oz. water
    4) Review PY Title 31 / sort AJNH papers / submit new leave requests
    5) Prep lunch for Tues. / mending / wash dishes / another ta-da?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 5:50 alarm (treadmill before work)

    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
    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
    6) Participate in race or challenge events hopefully fewer virtual this year ~

    Been struggling a bit lately.
    Not really badly or anything
    Just feeling a bit off. I couldn't get my logging right. I couldn't stop snacking at night then forgetting how much I had. And then I wasn't meeting my goals and I just felt a bit deflated by it.

    But, pulled my big girl pants up, logged what I could remember and up to now I've only missed one day of logging (which I think I allowed the other day because there was just no way to measure the amount of calories, the downside of cakes baked by someone else!)
    I know I've missed some stuff but I can't remember what they were so it's as close as I can get it.

    My word of the year is determination. So Ive got to log the good, the bad and the ugly. Not to feel ashamed or embarrassed or like I've failed.
    If I go over my calories. It's fine as long as I've stayed accountable and logged it.
    I just wish I could do better, as good as I did in my first week
    I think the weight gain in my second week put me right off, I still haven't input it into MFP. I felt like all my hard work was wasted.
    But I stopped putting in the hard work, so what do I expect.

    But good lesson learned.
    If I want it, I need to be determined enough to do it.


    No point in logging as it's already pretty late in the day but goals are the same as usual.
    But tomorrow I'll be back to proper goal posting and sticking to it.

    I need to be determined through and through.

    -log food, and maybe don't have to completely re-log it late in the day! I did it!
    -no snacks Check
    -horse riding or gym, maybe both? Pipe dream but will try. Rode for over an hour, and it was actual work. We have our horse in a new stable, it's a new arena, new horses, new scary things, and new bridle, so I worked on her until she was comfortable and slowed down. Good win!

    1/18/2022 JFT:
    -log food
    -no snacks
    -gym I think, since we rode today.

    @beachwalker99 - I hope that the year proves that retirement is doable.

    @Bex953172 - I was/am struggling getting back into the routines I had a few years ago. I don’t know why I’m struggling so hard except “I just don’t wanna”. (Insert whiny 4 year old tone). As the adult that I am I know that I need to though. My doctor made me a deal to let me retest my blood in a 3 or 4 months before putting me on meds for my sugar levels. Diabetes is one disease I don’t want so I have to kick myself in the butt and get at it.

    @tech_hunter - I love horses from a distance. I want to love them close but I can’t do it. In another life I would love to own stables.

    Had a quiet day at work, the roads were bad so most of the staff worked from home. I’m hoping the storm tonight makes the same thing happen tomorrow.

    I had a pimple show up today on my eyelid of all places. It is annoying. I think it must be the progesterone I had to take to help with the menopause issues.

    I should go do my journal and take my BP. Have a good night.

    I didn't update last night and just went for it today. I feel better physically and also relieved that we're finally making noticeable progress in packing. DH doesn't mind waiting until closer to move date, but I just don't want to risk being hurried, want the apt to be as tidy as possible beforehand (and want to see what fits and what has to go). I hope to start exercising again this week, pushing aside boxes to do so. Up To The Beat has a new video out so I'd like to try that one, as well as her 70s Disco one that I recently did a claymation to (and can't get the Boogie Wonderland out of my head). :smiley:

    Chit chat/catchup I just like to say hello and that trying matters! I know what it's like to feel like nobody cares and how much of a letdown that is, so want to try to say that y'all do matter and your better choices today, no matter how small, will add up over time!


    @Anchor123456 Hi and welcome! I avoided calorie tracking too until I learned that MFP allows you to put in your own recipes manually. I just put in my "serving size" into the title so I know what it is (like 1 cup of casserole).

    @Faebert Thanks for letting me know about the muscle pain. I was wondering if I had carelessly pulled something. I'm favoring my side and it seems to be getting better, along with the coughing easing, thank God. Nice job fitting in a long walk!

    @littleblackskirt oh my, so sorry to hear about the accident, but relieved nobody was hurt!

    @Bex953172 Glad you didn't let an off day keep you down. I have to practice being kind to myself too - it's the perseverance that really comes through in the end. Keep trying! 10k steps and better food choices are good wins for the day!

    @Janele0627 Wow happy Onderland and you're so close to your goal! Woo!!!

    @more_freggies76 : ) mint chocolate oh my, that's good though that some sweets aren't as tempting as before. I'm working on replacing my temptations at the moment (with tea, fruit, veggies).

    @pridesabtch Snow! How much did you get? Did you get to take a nice walk? Please don't die at your spin class! :tongue:

    @mytime6630 I love sewing : )

    @beachwalker99 Sounds like a good plan for your semester, with goals at home and for your health. Good for you on getting your weight to go downward! I hope you're able to see success with a new planned retirement lifestyle. DH and I are going for it this year and praying we make it.

    @cschmitz110515 Tomorrow is another day, keep trying!

    @tech_hunter Sounds like a good start to the week!

    Word of the year: Determination

    JFT Tuesday (as I promised)

    - Log all food
    - Drink 6 waters
    - 10k steps
    - Clean up the house (or atleast all of downstairs for today)

    My friend brought me an energy drink on the way to school this morning, she does it quite often, I love it haha. But I made the mistake of coming home then having a coffee, full of caffeine right now haha.
    I got right on with the cleaning though and forgot to post goals!
    I always take lots of breaks when I'm cleaning (my inner procrastination trying to take over) so I figured now was the time to post goals before I forget again!

    Hope you all have a good day!

    Happy Monday y'all!

    Yesterday turned into a lazy day. We got about 12" of snow. I did shovel the driveway and drive to the Y for class, but nobody showed for class. Then I came home and had frozen pizza for dinner. It was hubby's birthday so I also had a brownie.

    Of course, then I had another brownie for breakfast. It happens and it was very yummy. The down side is when I have sweets in the morning it sets a bad tone for the day. I slept well last night, but was really tired this morning, so I decided to work from home. That is fine for this morning, but there are issues at the plant I need to be there for this afternoon. Bummer, but I like getting paid so there is that.

    I've not got anything planned for the evening so, there is no excuse not to ride the Peleton.

    JFT Tuesday
    - Morning meetings
    - Review customer complaints with ATO
    - Quality meetings
    - Go into work
    - Fix moisture analyzer
    - Research RV/VN
    - GO to Y and fill out paperwork
    - Home by 4:30
    - Ride Peleton
    - Log Food
    - Stay Green
    - No Alcohol
    - Bed by 11:30pm.

    Have a happy day y'all!

    Ongoing plans/ideas
    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 GR purchase list.
    2. E2: 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. Look into publishing and literacy doctoral programs.

    14. Summer: Organize photos with the family. Write Clois. Write Stuffy and Friends. Create blog posts for video lessons.
    15. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. 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? Indochino suit fitting - Atlanta or Nashville?

    WFTY: Focus. I've been stress-eating. Not a LOT a lot. A half-dozen pecans here or there. A slice of toast. It adds up. :(
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.
