    Hour commitment - After I finish my sweet potato, I won't eat again until after 5 pm. Can still have my metamusal. None of the same foods at dinner as at lunch.

    I'm having trouble with the paperwork I wanted to get done today. The lesson is that my goals ought to be about things I can do myself, not so much things that require the cooperation of a bureaucracy. I'm trying to be glad I started, but I'm really frustrated with the customer service phone queue. Oh well.

    I got something else on my list done - scheduling the dermatologist. I should have done that years ago.

    And it looks like a good day for diet and exercise!

    I'm somewhat back on track today, logging my food and trying to cut back on the snacks. It's amazing how quickly good habits can unravel.

    I got my 4th jab (second Covid booster), this afternoon, so we'll see how energetic I'm feeling tomorrow. I usually get a day or so of side effects, so tomorrow might be a good day to skip the exercise. I got a good walk in this morning, and I've been on my feet teaching and doing errands most of the day. I picked up some begonias for my front porch pots - one of the very few flowering plants that are both deer-resistant and good for partial shade. Hopefully I can get them in the pots tomorrow.

    These were my goals this morning...

    Had a good day :) not had the healthiest of foods at all. Greggs for lunch and dinner. But only came to around 1200 cals, 1500 is my limit!
    Also got 8 waters in today and didn't pee myself to death 😅😅

    Really need the bank to sort out a false transaction and refund me! It's my shopping money!! Foods getting low, it's a very very tight month and right now I have 70p to my name. Ringing them tomorrow again if it doesn't hit my account overnight! 🤞🤞🤞

    I did well on the diet and exercise. Yay! And I got started on dealing with HR for the withholding. So it's going well. I have over 500 calories saved up for Thursday. I can tell that level is not sustainable, but it's only one more day. The candy looks so good!

    @littleblackskirt - I’ve been struggling like you for a couple of years. I’ve found making my goals simpler and showing myself some grace has really helped.

    @cschmitz110515 - I don’t know why I’m having such a hard time getting my comments in here. I think because I do it later In the evening when I’m ready to account for my goals that I’m tired and don’t feel like typing. I do read everyday though.

    @azulvioleta6 - happy to read your team is all on the same page, hope you get your meds soon.

    @Bex953172 - I hope you get the bank straightened out fast!

    @Anniesquats100 - you’re doing amazing. Enjoy you burger and fries tomorrow.

    Last night and tonight for the first time since 2019 I was able to walk 1km each night.
    I won’t be walking tomorrow night because I’m going to Kaitlyn’s to watch tonight’s episode of This is Us. She lives an hour and 15 minutes from us and it will cost me for gas, but it will be so worth it. I’m doing it next Wednesday too!

    It's just after lunchtime and I've done almost nothing so far. Every night I think about what I'm going to accomplish the next day, but come the next day I only do the urgent stuff. Today I'd planned to drive into town and get a few plants at the garden centre, then take some lunch down to the beach. Even when it's still cold I can eat in the car. But I just didn't go. I don't know how to get some enthusiasm back, I'm so tired all the time.

    JFT Tuesday 17th

    Stay under maintenance I think so
    Only one snack 2? or 3?
    Walk no
    Do something, anything! went outside and planted up 3 pots

    Was super busy yesterday, and though I got on and read, I didn't post goals. All in all it was a relatively low cal day with a bike ride. The ride was good, we had a few drinks after. The guys started talking about how fast I used to be to a new guy. It was kind of embarrassing and made me feel bad for being where I am now, but they meant well. I started with the slower group and then caught onto the tail end of the moderate group. It felt good to go faster, then at the turn around I rode back with a new rider that I met last week. She's nice and I hope she continues to ride. If she gets a new bike she will be crazy fast.

    Work today is audit prep for my area, and finishing up audit report for the audit I performed Monday.
    Other than that I'm taking a half day.

    Today is a family day. Sierra is coming home from school today and it's V's birthday. She is 17 now. Hard to believe my baby girl is so grown up. Stir fry for dinner tonight and brownies for dessert. Maybe I'll try to ride the Peleton to get a few extra calories as it is supposed to rain this evening.

    JFT Wednesday

    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 ~

    • 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

    @azulvioleta6 yay! Glad you are getting your meds!

    I found a frozen bowl called "unwrapped egg roll" by evol. Still more calories than I wanted but also more protein. I'm surprised they used Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage. So I have that in the freezer for a veggie treat. I also got some lower calorie ice cream for Sunday dinner. Yay! It was a good grocery run.

    Next is a nap then I will at least make a stab at changing my tax withholding.

    Annie

    Sounds good...I've seen recipes for unwrapped egg roll, but haven't tried them yet...that might need to go into my rotation

    I did my yoga Yay! I couldn't find the same fast marching video so I tried a different one and got mostly through it. Instead of a steady beat in the music that the leader followed, I was supposed to pick my own pace, and that did not work. I was flopping around trying to find a rhythm, which is a great way to get hurt. So I quit after 18 minutes, which is a fair try.

    Taking it relatively easy today, so no exercise and flexible goals. I felt pretty good this morning (except for a sore arm). I met my daughter and her younger son at a local breakfast place. My grandson had the morning off, so it was a nice opportunity to do something special with just one of the kids. He ordered chocolate chip pancakes and bacon, and was delighted when he discovered bacon dipped in pancake syrup. It was a bit windy outside, but the sun was shining and we had a lovely time. And I did make good choices - half an omelette with spinach, mushrooms, and feta, a few breakfast potatoes, and piece of buttered rye toast. Should have skipped the butter, but I'll watch my fats today.

    Unfortunately, I'm feeling worn down after today's class and errands, so I might take a short nap before dinner. Hopefully, I'll be back up to speed tomorrow. It's a fair trade-off. Covid rates are rising quickly in my area. Hopefully this booster will help keep me in the classroom or, at least, from getting a bad case.
