    Yesterday was a cluster. Ended up working late and everything just fell apart...

    - Shower :smiley:
    - Work by noon :smiley:
    - Log food :(
    - stay green :(
    - No alcohol :(
    - Bed by 11:30 :(

    Yesterday was not great day. I was just dog tired. So much so that I didn't make it to work until like 9:30. Day was pretty good, but I worked a bit late and we planned to go to church for Bible Study. Unfortunately with the weather, Church was canceled. Like good Christians, we left and went to the bar for dinner and drinks. We haven't had date night in a while so we needed some time together.

    Tonight I teach my first spin class in 5 years. I'm super excited and a bit nervous, but mostly excited. The only question is whether or not people will show. They canceled school again today for icy roads. We'll see. Only down side of teaching spin is that Thursday was date night. We did go out for dinner last night, but it wasn't quite the same.

    JFT Thursday
    - Morning meetings
    - Go to Y to fill out paperwork
    - More meetings
    - Customer complaint issues
    - Teach Spin
    - Try not to die
    - Log Food
    - Stay green
    - No alcohol
    - Bed by 11:30

    Happy Thursday y'all!

    WFTY: Focus. Why is progress so much slower than unprogress?! :D
    Sure feels this way. Love the word "unprogress" because that's me. :p

    @Snowflake1968 Don't worry about posting comments, just keep posting! (((hugs)))

    Recap W 1/19 ~ a.m. PTO & afternoon telecommute

    3) 10:00 meeting (call) with financial advisor / afternoon some kind of office work = 2/2
    4) Laundry ~ and put away! yay / make pea soup using ham bone / hem winter wind pants / wash dishes / another ta-da? topped up nyjer & safflower bird feeders (brrrr), unexpectedly washed blanket that Kitty horked up on, called funeral luncheon coordinator, quick shopping trip & dropped off donation at church for Judy N's funeral luncheon (sad me), balanced bank accts, updated budget s/s, little mending, digital decluttering, time with hubby <3 ~ TA-DA yay = 4/5

    This week and next, per my dentist, I am eating/drinking for more calcium (to build bone density) in preparation for an implant on Feb 1. Not a problem, we have the food & milk in the house. I just usually have less per day. Analyzing my food diary (without exercise while I'm also not stressing my knee), I realized I'm eating at maintenance. Could be worse. And only for a short while. :)

    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 ~

    2nd goal: 180
    Ultimate goal: 170-175 (178 is considered normal BMI for my height)

    6. To curb and stop nitetime snacking for good. Learn to wait 5 minutes before grabbing food.

    SW: Feb 5: 191.8
    SW: Mar 5: 193
    SW: April 2: 190.4
    SW: May 188
    SW: June 190
    SW: July: -- skipped this month
    SW: August: 184.6
    **Skipped recording weigh-ins from August until just now... this is what has happened. Gain of 15 pounds over the holidays. This is something every year I struggle with .. gaining from Halloween until New Years. THIS year, I will learn how to NOT let this happen
    Weight history 2021
    Friday, Jan 8: 194.4 -1.2
    Jan 15: 194.6. +.2 I was down to 193.4 2 days ago .. but this reflects 2 days of mindless eating.
    Jan 22: 191.4 -3.2 5 out of 7 days were good ...
    Jan 29: 194.2 -- this is what happens when I don't track, give into stress and emotional eating. But ... My word for the year is consistency... that means consistently also recording my weight .. and being accountable. So its a new week.. again.
    Feb 5: 191.8 -- trying to get back on track with controlled nite time eating
    Feb 12: 194.3 --- I don't know why, but I can do good for a week, only to blow it the next week. I think the pandemic, the cold dreary weather is leading me to just overeat.
    Feb 19: 194 --- a very small loss, due to 4 days of overeating granola bars and Kind bars.
    Feb 26: 193 -- 5 out of 7 days I did OK, especially with nite time snacking.
    Mar 5: 193 -- stayed the same, but had 2 days of eating icecream and peeps
    Mar 12: 192.6. Started challenge of the rest of the month NO nite time eating at all.
    Mar 19: 190.4 -- 5 out of 7 days NO nite time eating. Goal next week ... 6 our of 7 day no nite time eating, 8+ glasses water @ day.
    March 26: 188.6--- 6 out of 7 days I did good .. no nite time eating. Last nite... food was in control of me. I was so tired, and instead of lying down... I grazed the entire nite. So much that I had trouble sleeping. So while right now my weight is down, I expect it to go up. So next weeks goal is 7 out of 7 days.
    April 2: 190.4 --- not the best week.. but I am still down 5.2 pounds for the first 3 months of this year. So I will look at the positives.
    April 9: 191.2 --- even though I had a OK week, I think eating ham for 3 days .. hoping its just water weight.
    April 16: 187.6 -- a week of more mindful eating, especially in the evenings, plus a lot more exercise with walking and garden work.
    April 23: 187 -- a very small loss, but at least the scale is going in the right direction. I will continue to work on the nite time snacking and emotional eating.
    April 30 188.8 -- got into the ice cream again.I am just 10 pounds before I am in a healthy, normal weight for my height.. but those 10# have been the hardest. I met that goal in 2019 ... trying to get back there.
    May 14: 188.0 -- A week of terrible back pain, so I wasn't really watching, or caring what I ate. So happy that I at least did not gain much.
    May 21: 185.6 -- lots of walking and yard work this past week.
    June 4: 190.1 -- this is what happens when I am not paying attention to habits, etc.
    Missed tracking weight almost all through june and july. back on track now
    July 30: 186.8 --- trying to plan dinner meal better, and doing a lot of walking. Gave up caffeine .. on week 3 now.
    August 5: 184.8 ---- good week. No caffeince, which actually helped with my eating. Planning at least dinner meal is also helping me.
    **Skipped recording weigh-ins from August until just now... this is what has happened. Gain of 15 pounds over the holidays. This is something every year I struggle with .. gaining from Halloween until New Years. THIS year, I will learn how to NOT let this happen .
    2022 Weigh-ins
    SW: Jan 1: 199.0
    Jan 7: 201.6 --- feeling so depressed with this sore on my back... and I guess been eating out of stress/boredom. Not sleeping, so no motivaton. doctor put me on a second round of antibiotics .. so I hope it starts to heel. But I need to get more serious about logging my food ... hate being out of the 100s again! Always said I'd never let this happen.
    Jan 14: 200.1 -- on my 3rd dose of antibiotics, but my back is healing. But have not been eating as healthy as I should be ... and not going to the gym because of covid. Even though losing weight is 90% what I eat, the exercise gets me in the right frame of mind. So I am hoping to get back to at least early morning walking again. But ... at least scale dropped a small amount.
    Jan 20: 200.1. Just having a hard time getting my head into the game. Cold, dreary weather; not enough exercise, and too many nites of stress/boredom/ eating.

    I am really struggling for some reason this year .. just can't seem to get into this. I eat healthy ... and have mostly healthy snacks on hand .. but I know I still eat too much. Bordeom/ depression/mindless eating in the evening.

    SO JFT, Friday
    1. log my food... I have not been doing this either
    2. concentrate on water. . not getting enough water. I think I eat when I should just drink water
    3. be mindful of snacks... while I sew, I've been "grazing" on things like nuts, raisins, etc. Last nite I ate 2 protein bars. Why?? I'm not even hungry

    I'm sorry you're struggling. Maybe it's because you didn't have the best start to the year with the problem with your back! Most people have the 'New Year optimism' and because you were in alot of pain, you didn't have that time to focus on your goals.
    My optimism has worn off now 😂

    Plus with not going to the gym because of covid, your normal fitness routine isn't possible. You found something that helped and because of covid you can't do that at the minute.

    Why not set yourself a challenge?
    And get that red cup out!
    You can do this and things will get better :)

    I can't believe it's took 3 rounds of antibiotics!! Hope you're feeling better xx

    I don't think I posted goals today? In my defence I just had a bad mental health day. I was struggling with the kids, stressed out and on verge of tears because of them. Turns out I forgot to take my antidepressant, duh.
    Although I wish I wasn't such mess without them. I feel like the only reason I'm "normal" is because I have them, so am I really being "me"?
    Sigh I dunno. I'll wait for them to kick in and then I won't have these weird thoughts 😂

    I did sort my diary out for the last 2 days so that's good. Keeping on track atleast.
    Not ate much today, doubt I'll be able to complete the diary due to too little calories, but I'm not worrying about it too much.

    Posting new goals tomorrow :) must include "Take meds" to make sure I don't forget again!

    Evening all.

    Sorry to hear you are struggling @mytime6630. It sounds like it’s not been the best start to the year. Is there any way we can help? You’ve always been so good at motivating all of us. You can do this!

    @clicketykeys - I kind of resisted! I decided it was better to eat a bit of fruit and have a decaf coffee than try and hold off and end up with toast and cookies. Ended the day under goal and did the same again tonight when tempted. But I do have moments of just feeling really resentful that I can’t just snack at will. On yummy things. With no repercussions…

    @bex953172 - hope you’re feeling better.

    A fairly good day for me today. I was worried because the first half involved no goals as I just enjoyed coffee with a friend. But then I got out for a run, came home and started tearing through the to-so list.

    Thursday goals recap:
    Morning run ✅ 5km
    Drive kids to school ✅
    Coffee with N ✅
    Planning time ✅
    Birthday party booking ❌ she changed her mind!
    Sort quotes ✅
    Laundry ✅
    Pick kids up from school ✅
    Cook baked chicken dish ✅
    Roast veggies ✅
    Stay within calorie goal ✅
    Water ✅
    Bed by 10 ✅

    Friday goals:
    Morning run
    Pack soup and yoghurt
    Walk kids to school
    Print worksheets for next week
    Sort Digital Resilience materials
    Leave by 4:30
    Stay within calorie goal
    Water
    Bed by 11.

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    End of 2021: 194.4
    Today: 199.0

    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.

    So last night I didn't update here because I was just too tired. I should have done my bedtime goals, no excuse. Today I worked on a peaceful atmosphere and attitude despite swings of "it won't fit in the truck" and "it will fit in the truck" and "we have no money we might not make it" etc.
    Afternoon ended on a better note with DH and DH even helped with not only an errand but with packing! Scrunched/jenga'd stuff into a smaller space (taking them out of their containers and setting the containers by themselves really saves on moving room).

    A little bummed about my habits as I read everybody working on their yearly goals. Also I think I gained weight this week despite working on my calories. I wasn't at the low goal green line of estimated losing 2 lbs per week, but I was still hoping to lose at least 1 pound. sigh

    still many weeks before moving. my back is liking the slower pace
    also, why is there mold in our garage? where did it come from? why is it on everything? I might spray it down with something before we leave as a nice gesture for the next tenant

    I will say that I'm proud of myself today for really trying to work on my communication skills, and also for being on time (barely) for getting something done (bills etc.).

    @Bex953172 I get bouts of headaches too which only seem to go away with a whole night's sleep (naps don't help). I hope yours go away soon. (((hugs))) Sorry to read that your day was a tearful one. I hope tomorrow is better. I get my emotional swings delivered to me, every few hours I either hear "see, everything will fit (into the truck)" and then "it's not going to fit into the (bigger) shed!". over and over

    @MLHC1 I feel like pretty much every task I do is interrupted in some way. Can I call that my routine? Persevering after interruptions?

    @clicketykeys I chuckled at your description of being more flexible while snacking. :tongue:

    @Janele0627 I hope your day today went better.

    @more_freggies76 Sounds like a fun gathering - I hope you have a nice time!

    @beachwalker99 Thank you very much for the explanation! I think I get the jist of how it works and will be able to hook it up now. Thank you!

    @mytime6630 I really like your goals for the year. :smile:
    I have a terrible habit of evening snacking too, as well as not drinking enough water. I think I need to carry it around with me to help maybe? DH doesn't have problems with drinking enough because he has cup and airpot right next to him all day.

    @Faebert Wow way to go on your goals!

    Just posting again. @Bex953172 - I did want to say to you that I believe anti depressants just help us be ourselves. I have been on them for the better part of 10 years now and according to everyone that has always known me they tell me I’m myself again.
    I talked to my son in law’s mom about it, she is a professor and the Dean of the psychology department at her university. She told me it’s all about the chemicals in the brain and the anti depressants keep them on an even keel. She herself has been on one for 40 years and she has tried over the years to go off them and it’s a noticeable difference. She finally gave up trying to fight them and realized it’s the same as any other med that helps with a long term issue like blood pressure.

    I haven't posted daily goals this week as I wasn't making any effort. I've walked a few days but that's all. My mother was taken to hospital as she was struggling to breathe (she has covid). It was night time, and it's quite unsettling having serious phone calls about end of life care in the middle of the night, especially when you live alone. Can't exactly phone someone for a chat...so I made toast as I couldn't sleep! That really is night time snacking! I feel like I'm in limbo waiting to see how she does.

    But that's no reason not to post a few goals, so

    JFT Friday 21st Jan

    Stay under maintenance
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises (really sore right now)
    Walk
    Clear away all the paperwork lying around (all "bitty" stuff from parents house, doesn't really have a home but can't be thrown out)

    This morning we are truly in the deep freeze. The outside temp gauge on my car as I drove to work fell to -10F (-23C). Yikes! But the sun is shining! Temps are supposed to rise to 14 or 15 later, more bearable.

    Tonight I'm walking on the Fox River Trail in a 5K. It's a "fun run" and untimed so I'm not going to walk my usual fast pace. Couldn't if I wanted, the cold is playing havoc with arthritis in my knees. Last night I organized all my winter layers to wear, and I should be fine. One thing about living in Wisconsin, people have all manner of clothes for the various weather.

    As sunset is more than an hour before we start, glow sticks will be handed out at check-in, but I'm also wearing my Noxgear vest & headlamp, and I checked those last night too. I know from the past, a few sections of the trail can be fairly dark at night. The runners & bikers start at 6 p.m. and walkers five minutes later. I am anticipating an exciting atmosphere at a live event outdoors with hardy Wisconsinites. Yay!

    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 ~
