    Recap 12/16 F
    1) PT exercises & shoveled light inch of snow :smiley: happy me
    2) Move hourly / >7,500 steps :smiley: 7.6K 18 floors 11/14
    3) Leftover wild rice & chicken bake & salad for supper / net calories zero / >64 oz. water :) Evening eggnog with rum & only 10 peanut M&Ms :p net cals -220, sodium good, fiber carbs protein calcium ok, 80 oz water
    4) Ta-da's: stamps & address labels on Christmas cards / drop cards at Post Office / order bread for Christmas / wash dishes / prep gift bag & card for mail carrier / pack up card supplies / start prepping stocking stuffer bags / create Walgreens acct & link to health ins / declutter 15 min. / another ta-da? cleared some papers, updated budget s/s, checked DVR TA-DA! :)
    5) Floss / retainers / pray / alarm? (Market on Military 9-1, Sam's Club) :) 3x

    JFT 12/17 Sat.
    1) Move hourly / >7,500 steps
    2) Rest day or PT exercises?
    3) Salmon & noodles for supper / net calories zero / >64 oz. water
    4) Market on Military / Sam's Club / prep offering for church / prep stocking stuffer bags / create Walgreens acct & link to health ins / another ta-da?
    5) Floss / retainers / pray / 6:00 alarm (women's choir sings 2 services, be there 7:30)

    We got another inch of dry, fluffy snow & hubby shoveled while I let dog out in back, filled dog & Kitty bowls & ate quick breakfast. Hubby also emptied garage mousetrap & reset, so I didn't have to. I consider that a fair trade for the other household things I do. hahaha

    5# Challenge ~ using my Sat. w-i
    Nov. 12 = 175.5
    Nov. 19 = 175
    Nov. 26 = 176 Thanksgiving foods
    Dec. 3 = 175.5
    Dec. 10 = 175.5 staying steady, at least not gaining
    Dec. 17 = 174.5 yay


    About me:
    I'm Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    65 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
    • 5.31.22 ack
    • 6.30.22 ups & downs in June, but no worse at end of month
    • 8.2.22 up again ~ gah! (lazy in July & ate whatever I wanted)
    • 9.1.22 not doing so great eating-wise
    • 9.30.22 leveling off, starting downwards again :)
    • 10.31.22 not pretty... I can't stand being this heavy again!
    • 11.30.22 Thanksgiving foods put me up
    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
    • Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 (first time in person since 2019) ~ 1:41:02 ave. pace 16:27 first half 51:35 second half 50:26 & knees were fine :star: happy me
    • Packers 5K on 7.16.22 ~ 48:48 average pace 15:43 finished 37/81 in my age group (I'm oldest year in range haha)
    • Bellin Women's 5K on 10/1/22 (Packers 5K discount yay) ~ 48:56 ave. pace 15:45 overall 202 of 296 :star: not too shabby 9 days before I turned 65yo
    • register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K on 10/8/22 (price goes up in Sept) ~ reconsidered due to knees on nature trails with rocks, tree roots & finishing up a very steep sledding hill... have decided not doing this year (maybe ever again = sad me b/c I love trail events)
    • watch for other events to add ~ None. Sad that City Stadium Run for Veterans no longer, ended by the pandemic.
    • maybe Jingle Bell 5K in person this year? need to watch for skipped virtual local event
    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 ~ not much progress lately, at least dining room done
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship

    Diet has been successfull. I have been easing myself back into it. I feel better than i expected i would. Thoroughly chewing my food seems to be helping. I stuffed myself a bit last night on schwarma, veggies, and hummus, which felt a little bad at first, but then later that night i felt very well, unusually well, like my body was glowing. I might be skimping too much on the dietary fat. I'll try to be more careful about that.

    Today was kinda a weird day.
    I had to take hubby to the airport today in the morning. I got up at my usual time but didnt have much time for breakfast. So i had my usual fried egg, and a half slice of gluten free toast with peanut butter instead of edamame since i had questionable time to cook the edamame. After airport it was straight to a meetup at a coffee place. We stayed through lunch so i got a vegetable & parmesean frittata and two lattes. Now that i write that down that doesnt seem too bad. For dinner i had one of my go-to low-carb Healthy Choice Power Bowls. I will be eating one a day on this diet, theyre very nutrient dense for how low calorie they are (and quite tasty and easy; i dont like cooking much). Im still really hungry so i will find something to pick at the rest of the night. Something like a low-fat low-sugar yogurt, or small supper of veggies and meat, or kale chips and nuts.... basically dairy, veggies, meat, or a combination, with a bit of unsaturated fat thrown in.

    Hey not sure if I missed a previous post but would you mind explaining what you mean by the trigger points? Wasn't too sure what you were on about and I thought maybe I should just ask 😂 hope you don't mind me asking x
    No problem, i realize i was being rather vague (you didnt miss anything). Its short for "myofascial trigger points", and i guess since ive had them for probably a long while that means i have myofascial pain syndrome. In brief its when someone has chronic pain, weakness, and/or stiffness due to these trigger points. They hurt when pressure is applied and hard to find because the referred symptoms they cause are more noticeable, sometimes with a sizeable gap between the referred symptoms and the trigger point (which is the source and what needs to be treated). I'm hoping that treating them will make dieting and exercise easier.

    But I'm not gonna see it so much as a "me" problem but more just a situational issue.
    Relateable. Often i get hung up on "shoulds" that arent grounded, theyre based on stereotypes i have internalized. But im confident life is better lived when instead of asking yourself "why am i failing to be what i expected myself to be? I shouldnt be like this" and instead saying "What do i know about myself? What can i do with this information?" For example, instead of saying "Why am i so tired? Its just housework" i correct myself, and say "Housework makes you tired. If you are planning to do housework, plan to be tired. Theres nothing more to it." Cause and effect. Looking at the situation. So instead of fighting myself and pushing myself too hard, i find peace and do more with less. Its nice.

    Goals for 12/17
    - finish Christmas shopping ✅
    - Wash dishes ❌ / run dishwasher ✅
    - Laundry ✅
    - Clean bathrooms ❌
    - Work on writing stuff ✅
    - Job hunt ❌
    - Oh yeah, try and eat somewhat healthy and drink enough water. 🤷‍♀️

    Didn’t get nearly as much done today as I wanted. Healthy eating wasn’t great either. Didn’t eat a very balanced diet (lots of meat, no fruit or veggies), didn’t drink enough water, didn’t snack between meals or drink my nutritional drink like I’m supposed to be doing… so yeah, feeling a little disappointed in myself today.

    So sick of being under par!
    C’est la vie!!!
    • November was a good month for me, and I achieved my goal of dropping a couple of lbs in anticipation of moderate indulgences over the festive season.
    • I am continuing with my present routine in December.
    Focus for December:
    • Enjoy moderate treats, while staying under calorie goal
    • Exercise to augment calories available
    • Adhere to Daily Solid Habits

    Eat under goal!

    The festive season was always a minefield for me. It’s taken 7 difficult years and much soul-searching to change my previous habits to ones which are more advantageous to health and fitness.

    I am worth the effort. And the payoffs are significant.

    You are worth the effort!!!

    Didn't make goals or log this weekend. Nothing really wrong, just not feeling it. Had family come in unexpectedly Saturday for a short visit it was nice. Mom was her usual bitter self, but my aunt and uncle were a nice light. I always enjoy their company. My uncle even wrote me afterwards, and said he felt bad for how my mom treated me. Funny thing is we actually had a good day, she is just a sad lonely person who blames everyone but herself for her situation. For instance she complains that she never sees my kids, but when I invite her to go to one of their performances she declines. Anyway, she hates Christmas, but expects certain things to still occur. She can be distant and cold, but if I don't bring her fudge and cookies she pouts and doesn't talk to me. When I do bring it, she acts as if I never give her anything. Mind you I've never not brought her cookies and fudge at Christmas. We actually make lots of cookies and fudge and take it to our friend's parents who are local. They are always appreciative and we sit and visit a while. It's nice because Tim and I spent a lot of time with these families in high school. I hope when we are old some of the girls friends remember us fondly.

    For a long time I let my mom suck the joy out of the holidays for me, but I decided a few years ago that it was ok for me to be happy and enjoy the season regardless of her thoughts. If I can't make her happy, I definitely shouldn't let her make me sad or heaven forbid bitter and cold. That is no who I choose to be.

    Other than family and cookies, I didn't do much this weekend. I still have cookies to make and tins to fill, but I look forward to it. I like making people smile.

    Today I am at work, but not sure if I'm staying the whole day. Had some questionable Chinese last night that didn't agree with me. Tummy is still a little tender, so I may bail and work from home.

    JFT Monday
    - Work by 8:00 :(
    - Check in on MFP :smiley:
    - Mini Meals
    - Log Food
    - Stay Green-ish
    - SCAR supplier
    - Bake PB Blossoms
    - Make Fudge
    - Put away laundry
    - Reasonable dinner
    - Bed by 11:00

    Have a great day y'all! Don't let others steal your joy!

    JFT, Mond, 12/19
    1. log food
    2. concentrate on water .. am I thirsty, or hungry.
    3. watch nitetime snacking
    4. take daughter to post office, and swimming
    5. sew ..thats my therapy
    ***************************
    5 pound challenge .. lost 5# by end of year! Weigh-ins
    Trying to weigh every saturday
    November 12: 205.0 ! Yikes. I knew I was up, because my jeans are once again tight. So my goal is to be back in onderland by January 1st!
    Nov 18: 207.2 --- the scale is going the wrong direction.. and when I look back, I know why.Its mindless eating of even "healthy" foods like raisins, banannas, nuts, etc. So, that must stop
    Nov 26:
    221. going in the wrong direction... back to starting weight ... but tomorrow is a new day. too much overeating for thanksgiving, so hoping for a loss next week.
    Dec 3: 205.0... back where I started almost 3 weeks ago... not being too successful so far. But my downfall is still evening snacking, and not enough water. Goals for next week: 4 out of 5 nites no snacks :s ( Failed on this one .. probably managed 2 nites), aim for 6+ water each day :s (Big fail on this).
    Dec 10: 204.8 -- not much, I was hoping it would be more. Goals for next week: 8+ water a day; 4 nites with NO SNACKS in the evening.
    Dec 17: 209. I am hoping this is just a fluke that I am up almost 2.6 pounds! I did better, but then again, had 4 days of pizza, so thats probably the reason. But ... I need to stay accountable!

    Busy couple of days when I didn't make computer time to post. C'est la vie.

    @TerriRichardson112 Hope you feel better soon!
    @pridesabtch Sad that your mom constantly expresses her negative emotions. I admire your resolve not to let her put a damper on how you celebrate/feel. Good for you! (((Hugs)))

    JFT 12/19 M
    1) PT exercises :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / >7,500 steps (maybe pace during game hahaha)
    3) Lunch at cafe with D.E. / navy bean soup (on stove now) & make cornbread for supper / net calories zero / >64 oz. water
    4) Wash dishes ~ done / weekly garbage chores ~ done, hubby does the rest / museum membership & take advantage of 20% discount ~ done / register for John's winter webinar series (early bird pricing) & put on calendar ~ done / Sam's Club order? / assemble stocking stuffer bags / create Walgreens acct & link to health ins / watch Rams/Packers game ~ Go Pack Go / another ta-da?
    5) Floss / retainers / pray

    Today I had lunch at a wonderful cafe with a friend who retired last year. So fun to meet for weekday lunch with no timetable or job to return to! I think I made decent choices & logged my best guess. I remind myself neither my food nor my exercise activity is an exact science. I do what I can, and I'm not going to beat myself up over any of it.

    Yesterday I walked just under 3 miles on the treadmill in our basement, which I'm not fond of. First time this winter season & I had to put in new batteries to read the display screen. Why is the treadmill so much harder than walking a brisk pace outdoors with the dog? But with very cold wind chills and icy/snow-covered roads, I'm not walking dog, not our normal distance or otherwise. Only 5K to go to reach my challenge milestone of 800km for this year!

    5# Challenge ~ using my Sat. w-i
    Nov. 12 = 175.5
    Nov. 19 = 175
    Nov. 26 = 176 Thanksgiving foods
    Dec. 3 = 175.5
    Dec. 10 = 175.5 staying steady, at least not gaining
    Dec. 17 = 174.5 yay


    About me:
    I'm Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    65 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
    • 5.31.22 ack
    • 6.30.22 ups & downs in June, but no worse at end of month
    • 8.2.22 up again ~ gah! (lazy in July & ate whatever I wanted)
    • 9.1.22 not doing so great eating-wise
    • 9.30.22 leveling off, starting downwards again :)
    • 10.31.22 not pretty... I can't stand being this heavy again!
    • 11.30.22 Thanksgiving foods put me up
    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
    • Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 (first time in person since 2019) ~ 1:41:02 ave. pace 16:27 first half 51:35 second half 50:26 & knees were fine :star: happy me
    • Packers 5K on 7.16.22 ~ 48:48 average pace 15:43 finished 37/81 in my age group (I'm oldest year in range haha)
    • Bellin Women's 5K on 10/1/22 (Packers 5K discount yay) ~ 48:56 ave. pace 15:45 overall 202 of 296 :star: not too shabby 9 days before I turned 65yo
    • register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K on 10/8/22 (price goes up in Sept) ~ reconsidered due to knees on nature trails with rocks, tree roots & finishing up a very steep sledding hill... have decided not doing this year (maybe ever again = sad me b/c I love trail events)
    • watch for other events to add ~ None. Sad that City Stadium Run for Veterans no longer, ended by the pandemic.
    • maybe Jingle Bell 5K in person this year? need to watch for skipped virtual local event
    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 ~ not much progress lately, at least dining room done
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship
