    Funny thing. I came in here to check my goals to see if I said no alcohol today. I apparently knew tonight would be rough. But if I’d said no alcohol, I would not have had the beer. As is it tasted really good.

    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: 197.6

    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. Bedtime for me. I feel like I'm forgetting things. Bleugh!
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    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

    JFT Wednesday
    - Work by 6:30 :smiley:
    - Meeting at 7:00 :smiley:
    - Do some audits this afternoon :(
    - Check calibration status :smiley:
    - Protein bar for brunch :smiley:
    - Bible Study at church :(
    - Dinner out :(
    - Log Food :smiley:
    - Stay green :smiley:
    - Bed by 11:30 :smiley:

    Have a happy day y'all.

    Yesterday was a good day. There were things on my list that I didn't do, but they were replaced by better things. The audits, I reassigned and extended the due dates on. I didn't go to Bible Study, because I decided my Tuesday evening Bible study was sufficient. Instead I rode the Peleton for 30 minutes. Damn those workouts are tough. Since I didn't go to church I didn't eat out, instead I had a yummy turkey sandwich.

    All in all I felt good about the day. The evening was a bit rough for my daughter with High School girl drama happening. She cried, I cried. I don't know how to help her. Later in the evening I called another parent in the friend group to try to get a better handle on the situation. I cried some more, didn't really get any answers, but she's a good friend so I felt better after. Decided to have a beer and finish watching WVU lose their basketball game. I did check goals first to make sure I hadn't said "no alcohol" as I often do, but I didn't so I enjoyed a few drinks and stayed within my calorie allotment.

    Today has been utter chaos so far. Our internet is down at home so neither hubby or I could work from home today. He had an early meeting so he rushed out. I didn't have a meeting until 8:30 so I was more laid back. Until my daughter came in and told me her car wouldn't start. No biggie, I'll get dressed and take her to school before I go to work, right? Wrong, her car is parked behind mine in the drive, so I'm blocked in and too far away to jump her car. Text hubby, and take my 8:30 call on my cell phone (luckily I didn't need to present anything). Hubby comes home from work jumps her car, and we all finally head our separate ways. Sheesh...

    Today I have a few more meetings, and i teach spin tonight, so that is a bonus, but I will miss V's play. No real worries, I'll see it Saturday at the Theater Competition, but I don't like missing things. Other than that, nothing really planned. I'm thinking pizza for dinner, well pizza toppings on a burrito flour to save calories, but it gets crunchy and I like it so all is well.

    JFT Goals
    - Work from home :(
    - 8:30 meeting :smiley:
    - Work stuff
    - 1:00 meeting where I have to present
    - Home by 4:30
    - Grab a bite to eat before spin since I forgot my lunch today
    - Teach spin
    - Home by 7:30
    - Shower
    - Veg

    Happy Thursday y'all!

    I'm down 4.4 lbs since joining you all again! I've been taking my medications more regularly, cooking at home more, and able to better regulate my emotions despite being egged on at every opportunity! :s Difficult week, our kitty had a horrible episode and spent a few days at the emergency vet. He's home but I absolutely emotionally ate - but I recognized it instead of sticking my head in the sand. Back to the vet tonight for some rechecks, hoping all is well. They have no idea what caused it and we've ruled out all the obvious and not so obvious things possible. Here's hoping he makes a full recovery, hes only 1.5 :( Also! We got into the daycare for part time care after all! I am thrilled!!!

    @AJB1014 - congrats on the weight loss! Sorry to read about your poor cat. Hope he’s ok.

    I’m hopping on briefly after a strange day. It was all going so well and then my younger daughter tested positive on a lateral flow device. So I’ve been scrabbling around this evening emailing schools and booking PCR tests. The rules say as I’m triple jabbed I can carry on as normal. Tomorrow night I was due to meet some friends for dinner in my first night out in probably more than a year. I’m feeling very conflicted about whether I should go… obviously if my daughter is too ill, I would stay home with her. But she is currently fine… I’ll sleep on it!

    Hope you’ve had a better day @mytime6630 and I’m glad you had a good day @pridesabtch. Hope you enjoyed the babysitting @littleblackskirt. Good to see you @PackerFanInGB @cschmitz110515 and @Snowflake1968.

    Scale goals

    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    End of 2021: 194.4
    Today: 197.6

    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.
    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. My chipped tooth is fixed! It feels weird though...
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    JFT Thursday 27th Jan

    Stay under maintenance I don't know
    Only one snack definitely more than one
    Foot exercises no
    Walk to the park...again

    Another babysitting day.

    Did badly yesterday. Although my meals were okay, I snacked too much, mindless eating due to stress. Grandson was pushing the boundaries a bit, and making it difficult for me to do a few urgent things regarding my mum. I'm constantly worrying about my mum, and I need to do some work on my holiday let and wondering if I should go or stay at home. I guess worrying doesn't help at all!

    JFT Friday 28th Jan

    Stay under maintenance
    Only one snack
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises
    Cook the meat in my fridge before it goes off
