    Lovely day yesterday, despite the dreary start. The wet weather lingered through the morning, only to be replaced by gusty winds, so we nixed the walk and had a lazy morning. After lunch, we joined a delightful birthday Zoom with our youngest grandson and his family, By the time my daughter and her family arrived, the weather was improving. My dear husband cooked us a yummy Mother's Day dinner and we wrapped up the day with dessert around the firepit.

    Today was super busy, so I'm really late posting. Just the basics.

    Recap - Sunday 5/8
    Log - No. I didn't log anything after lunch.
    Balanced meals - Not bad until dessert. Definitely over calories.
    Hydrate - :)
    Short walk if the weather is reasonable - No. The weather didn't work out, so I'm starting Week 2 with a rest day.
    Birthday call to grandson - :) What fun!
    Mother's Day calls - :)
    Enjoy the day - :):):)

    Monday
    1. Eat under calorie limit NO
    2. No cookies NO
    3. Eat salad yes
    4. Work on list NO
    5. Oil change yes
    6. Walk 30 mins yes
    7. Book group yes

    Well, another day full of candy. The oil change discovered dry rot in my tires, so I bought four new tires to be installed Friday. So good job getting that taken care of quickly. But this candy snacking has got to stop!

    My cocoa with stevia arrived so I can try that today. That would cut down the calories for a hot chocolate, so that's good.

    Well, I forgot I had a choir concert to go to last night so exercise didn't happen and we went out to eat and I had a beer at the Mexican restaurant. Sooo yesterday was a bit of a miss... Today I will get a little bit of movement in. I'm doing a club ride, but I'm coaching new riders, so it will be short and slow. I may try to go out early and ride the route so I know for sure where we are going. Which would be good considering I'm in charge of the ride... I mean I know where I'm going, but it's been a while. I will at least drive it.

    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 ~
    • 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) 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
    • registered 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

    Still no candy! But the hardest part is after dinner.
    I'm fighting the bad thoughts that I can afford just one piece. I couldn't stop at one piece Sunday or Monday. Best not get started today. Weigh-in is Friday, coming right up!

    I could only find four of the lactose free yogurts so I bought some regular. Might have some allergy symptoms this week. The stevia doesn't work so well with yogurt, so I need to learn to eat it plain. Small adjustments, hopefully a larger effect. As long as I keep my eyes on the prize!

    Have a great Tuesday, y'all!

    Yesterday was good. I left work early, voted and then went to pre-ride the course I was going to lead the new riders on. Actually, voting took a little longer than expected so I had to drive the route instead of riding it, but still it was ok. The group of new riders weren't really new riders. Most have ridden for a while, but not necessarily in this area or on the roads. It was a rather mellow ride though it was taxing for me being that I'm out of shape. Still it was nice meeting new people. We went out for dinner and drinks after. It was a very nice group.

    Really, really didn't want to get out of bed this morning. I'm still struggling with energy levels and desire to do things, even fun things let along the required things. It is supposed to be a nice day today. I may try to ride after work. I really need to, but like I said motivation is really low. It's like I know what I should be doing, I just don't care enough to do it. Once I do it I feel better and I try to remind myself of that, but still I struggle.

    Not much on the docket today other than work and a possible ride.

    JFT Wednesday
