    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: 196.2

    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? Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. Look into publishing and literacy doctoral programs.
    6. Medical: Dentist May 12. Oct 14 1p. PCP Apr 12 9:15. Therapy 1/26 10A and 2/24 4P. Ankle 9:30 2/7. PT 4p Mon/Fri
    7. Theater: Read play for discussion Feb 8 7P.
    8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor. How to remove cement.
    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.
    13. Lifting: 15 squats, 15 deadlifts, 10 shoulder presses, 15 arm raises, 10 pushups, 30 crunches, 15 side lifts, 15 back kicks. Horse stance for 5 breaths, tree for 10 breaths each leg.
    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 am feeling very scattered today.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    Monday evening already!
    Well to recap, I did think over habits again on Saturday. I'm having a rough time sticking to things as the emotional rollercoaster of moving/being flat broke when we get there plus being interrupted a ton more than usual is starting to stress me out. I'm kinda excited but a lot stressed and concerned; praying. There are other stresses coming from relatives (court stuff) but I'm trying to put a lid on it and not listen much. I just can't; have plenty of trouble for one day.

    I did manage to eat some salad a few times the past few days. Lot more pizza because 1) I figured out how to make it quickly and 2) those are the ingredients that are NOT packed away yet. sigh no trip to the store until February. I also managed to scooch stuff out of the way and exercise, until I was interrupted so that I had to stop. sigh but I gave it a go and felt better about myself

    My habit goals for now (haven't achieved a check mark on them yet)
    1) get up at 6am, say some prayers, drink a whole cup of tea (stay up! journal, be productive)
    2) don't eat yet; exercise before 10am
    3) crafts after dinner
    4) dishes done after dinner
    5) 8am floss and wash face
    6) take notes on saved videos; turn off devices and pick up a book
    7) in bed: pray, read, crochet

    Tomorrow is another day. DH is going to try to fix and clean our wood stove and clean more of the moldy garage, brave man. More packing for me inside and hopefully get to where we can spackle half a room and call it "done". I still don't know if everything will fit in the truck. Going to change our internet now to save money so we'll start doing a "test run" to see how much we can use on the new plan.

    Have a good Tuesday everyone!

    P.S. The fun run at night looked pretty!

    No recap. I didn't post Sunday goals since busy with some Sat. stuff that got pushed. Sunday I also didn't log food, snacked too much and ate too much at supper. This morning's daily w-i reflects those choices. Better for me if I post JFT.

    Welcome newbies! Never too late to join. JFT is a great community for accountability and support.

    Thanks all for the comments on my 5K photos. Not as many people as in the past, but I'm sure weather played a part.

    JFT M 1/24
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks if knee will allow
    2) Leftovers today / net calories zero / 112 oz. water
    3) Finish review of AJNH working papers & shred as needed / clear some email backlog
    4) Review cards box for upcoming bdays / declutter 15 min. / some hubby time / another ta-da?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 6:45 alarm (no workouts while knee is healing, at least I get to sleep later)

    My right knee is stiff and really sore again, after feeling good at Friday evening's 5K. Pretty sure I have a minor injury there, not just the arthritis. Hubby got the heating pad out for me Sat. night, and that is helping. What is not helping is our weather, which makes both of my knees worse. After several days with temps in mid-teens, we are going back into the deep freeze, high temps single digits, and wind chill advisory tonight & tomorrow. My workplace lunchtime hike tomorrow is already canceled.

    It's making me crazy having to rest. I wanted a good start in January to the You vs. The Year Challenge. And I miss having exercise calories to eat. Hahaha. Oh well.

    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 ~
    • 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
    • will register 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

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I track daily on a separate app (helps me visualize). My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    08/26 = 172.0 kind of a surprise
    09/02/17 = 170.0 Woohoo! Officially overweight, not obese :smiley:

    Luckily there were few goals yesterday… Another lazy day today. Went to church and ran some errands, there is an Angel food cake in the oven and strawberries in the fridge. I’m pretty much done for the day.

    Happy Sunday y’all!

    Yep, that is about all I did yesterday.

    Today had an early start with a 7:00am meeting. Followed by an 8:30 meeting followed by a 9:30 meeting, break for lunch then more meetings.

    Taking spin tonight teaching Thursday evening. Of course the trick is not going home and shutting down before class. It's so hard to get motivation back once I've come home for the day. Oh well, I got this.

    JFT Monday
    - Work by 6:30 :( Nope came in between 8:30 & 9:30 meetings
    - Meetings :smiley:
    - Work stuff
    - Home by 4:00
    - Don't take a nap! It's all over if I take a nap, but dang I'm tired
    - Eat a sandwich or some oatmeal
    - Go to spin
    - Dinner
    - No alcohol
    - Log food
    - Bed by 11:30

    Happy Monday lovely people!
