    Had a busy day yesterday. Didn't manage to sort the bank out. Got too many other things going on and I'm sick of banks lol. I'll get round to it.

    So I had my back up plan ready with the foodbank voucher. And had organised a lift of my SIL Amy so I didn't have to walk it. (When you're not in a car, they tend to give you less so you can carry it all)

    Although she let me down last minute, not her fault, she was poorly during the night and basically couldn't keep off the toilet.

    Luckily my two friends said they'd walk with me and help with the bags. It was a 30 minute walk to foodbank. I was knackered. My friend had the genius idea.of stealing a trolley from the supermarket over the road 🤣 and that we did and we wheeled it all the way abck to my house 😅😅 sorry not sorry. Needs must.

    Anyway, got all the food away. Fed the dog straight away. Poor thing was hungry. He had ate but not proper dog food and not nearly enough.

    Go another busy day of phonecalls today to various bills chasing us. Everyone's gonna have to wait. If I can't afford food, then I sure can't afford to pay the debts and every ones getting told that today.

    Also giving a ring to ash's doctor. For too long he has been fobbed off with his health and just gets given different tablets every time. He needs a re-evaluation of what his disorders actually are by a proper psychiatrist. Today they'll be getting a piece of my mind and I won't be getting off the phone until they've done everything I've asked for.

    Anyway, well within my calories yesterday and actually ate enough to complete diary unlike the day before.
    And that trip to the foodbank (Inc school runs too) got me to 17k steps!

    @azulvioleta6 - So glad to hear you finally got your meds. Hope you feel much better soon.

    @pridesabtch - The college years can be really rough. So sorry your daughter had a mental health crisis, but I'm glad to hear she reached out for help. It's great that she feels comfortable talking to you. We can't help what we pass on through our genes, but we can offer support and model an appropriate response. Your daughter is so fortunate she has you.

    @Bex853172 - A correct diagnosis can make all the difference, so I hope Ash gets the care he needs.

    Overnight we had thunderstorms, and dog was very nervous with thunder & wind. I ended up going downstairs to basement with her, which helps calm her. I put a blanket over her on the couch (which she loves) and watched more Downton Abbey marathon at 2 a.m. for half hour. Then upstairs to bed for me, dog stayed. Just couldn't get up this morning for alarm. However, Kitty let me know her breakfast was late. No dog walk & no PT exercises. Sigh. At least both rain barrels should be full, I need to water houseplants.

    Work environment (mainly dept mgmt) has been a real pain in the *kitten* lately, and I'm so happy it's Friday. Counting the days to retirement this fall. Gets more real in my mind every time I let someone know.

    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

    I had to go back almost 7 pages to try and catch up. Other than briefly skimming the posts, I am so far behind. If I don't post in the evenings, I just don't seem to get it done, so I have to make sure and write in the evenings.
    But just getting on here quickly before I get started working.
    Even though I'm not posting daily, I am doing good with my exercise, and I am committed to get my AIC and weight down. So at least for this week, I am doing good.
    I always have oatmeal with raisins for breakfast .. swapped out blueberries for the raisins (Read that raisins have a lot of sugar). So I'm just trying to swap out things that are not as healthy .. like brown rice instead of pasta or potatoes! And hubby and I are trying NOT to lay down after dinner in the evenings.
    Hubby tells me to stop snacking completely in the evenings.. which I know for me is my hardest habit to break, but at least this week, I have done really good.I think it helps that I'm trying to get a evening walk in.. and being busy has helped. I'm always busy, but it was the mindless grabbing stuff. So now if I do snack, its a apple, orange, or protein drink. My goal was to start June at 198 .. I am at 197.6 (So yay, out of the 200s!). If I can keep this up, by November I can be back at my goal weight of 175!
    Seems like a long ways off .. but its one day at a time
    I will try and catch up tonite on all I've missed!
    May challenge
    Goal 1: 60+ min of exercise at least 5 days per week
    Goal 2: Limit nitetime snacking
    Personal Challenge - Lose 5 pounds
    SW April: 207 (-3.6)
    May 1 - 203.6
    May 6: 203.6

    Hmm. I still need to clean my desk at least a little bit. I did other things like laundry regular and delicate, and empty the trash, and put away my winter shoes. I just don't want to face my paper piles.
