    Ooooo I personally could never do Australia. Like I'm terrified of any insects and bugs and in England we don't really have anything that big.
    And I don't know enough about Hawaii to comment other than a lot of the telescopes there but I don't know if you can even visit them and depends if you're into that kinda thing

    Youve made me want to research Hawaii though, not that I'd ever be able to go but I like to learn about places.

    You'll have to let us know what you end up deciding!!

    You have a lovely husband! Do you have a preference? It maybe depends on how long you can go away for, I have relatives in Australia and they would not travel home for less than 3 weeks. In fact they try to take 5 weeks off work, and stay with us for over 4 weeks, with the rest of the time for travelling.
    You also need a decent amount of time to see Australia once you get there!

    I didn't have such a good night's sleep last night, so not bouncing with energy this morning. I'm being lazy having a cup of tea and listening to F1 on the laptop. I shall leap into action later :)

    Eating has been okay, except I bought a little cake yesterday. Just felt like a treat.
    I'm going home later today.

    It’s been a rollercoaster of a month for me, but the outcomes have been very positive. I am recuperating steadily from my op. My bodily functions have already settled down. I’m largely off the painkillers, with only minor twinges from time to time. Getting lots of fibre (prunes, allbran, etc) to keep digestion moving.

    Both my daughters came to visit yesterday afternoon. They were relieved to see me almost back to normal.

    I’m generally keeping to my solid habits as well as I can as I recover. Mostly gentle exercise and no lifting heavy weights. DH is pampering me, but I’m gradually getting back to my chores. I’m keen to get back to driving, even short distances would be good. I like my independence.

    @TerriRichardson112 I'm glad to hear you are recovering well. Hopefully you'll be driving again soon.

    First of May already. This month I'm focussing on eating healthier foods, my eating habits have been bad recently. So eating an apple instead of a biscuit won't save many calories but it will definitely be better for me. There was a doctor on breakfast TV this morning who had eaten ultra processed food for 4 weeks, not increasing his portions, and he put on 6kg in 4 weeks. I missed part of the interview as grandson came in but I can guess he was also going to say how much worse he felt. So many of these processed foods with all the additives are bad for us but so easy to grab when in a hurry.

    JFT Monday 1st May

    THINK before you eat
    Increase fruit and veg
    Gardening

    I forgot to weigh myself this morning, will remember tomorrow. I intend to end May lighter than I started it!

    @TerriRichardson112 I'm also glad to hear that you're recovering well from your op!

    I can't believe it's the first of May. I only have 4 months until I go away on holiday. I need to start exercising again.
    I'm mostly better myself. It's just my coughs linger on foreverrrrrr. But the fatigue has gone. You know when you exercise and you feel tired but also kind of pumped, like you feel good. I call that "good fatigue" but I've been suffering from the bad fatigue where you only climb the stairs and then need a half an hour lie down 😂😂


    I won't be exercising today because the kids are off school for bank holiday.


    I did lots of painting again yesterday though..me and Ash got off our butts and decorated the lounge! We actually managed to finish it all apart from glossing the woodwork. But I do that separately anyway.
    So our lounge is looking lovely. Still some parts of the wall we need to fix up, need to pull out some wall plugs and fill and paint over them but that's for another day, for now, the main painting is out the way. But we have a completely bare wall because we took the electric fireplace off to sell it.

    So I need some pictures to hang up! Pictures that I dont have... But I love a good trip to The Range. 🛍️😁🥳

    Crazy busy weekend and barely logged in or checked in. However, it was a lot of fun. My daughter's volleyball tournament, kids birthday party (where I actually know/like all the moms), Disney Trivia, hanging out with neighbors with a drink and catching up. Last night I didn't really sleep though and I'm struggling today. We'll see if I can get anything really done for work. I'll need some serious caffeine to make it through.

    JFT:
    ☑️Drink at least 72oz water
    ☑️Stay under 1800 calories
    ☑️No coffee until 8am (already failed this one today)
    ☑️No food until 10am
    ☑️No food after 8pm
    ☑️Get at least 8000 steps today
    ☑️Get Teacher Appreciate stuff done

    @Bex953172 , I've been in my "new" house for 3 years now, and I still don't have pictures up in my lounge! I do have an empty nail the last owner left lol. It's an awkward room and I can't decide how to decorate it. Maybe once I've got all the work done in the garden...

    JFT Monday 1st May

    THINK before you eat I did!
    Increase fruit and veg not really, must go shopping
    Gardening yes

    I forgot to weigh myself this morning, will remember tomorrow. I intend to end May lighter than I started it!

    A good start to May. I weighed myself this morning and I'm 2 pounds less than last time, not sure how.
    I did think about what I was eating, and everything was good apart from some ice cream at evening meal. Decided to log just to see how it affected the calories, and I was in the green. The best part was I had no snacks at all, I want to break the habit of having a biscuit with my cups of tea. Even better, I resisted snacking in the evening, even though I thought about it.
    I really need to go shopping, I couldn't find anything at all to put in an omelette last night, so had an empty omelette lol.

    JFT Tuesday 2nd May

    THINK before you eat
    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Grocery shopping
    More gardening, still lots to do!

    13. Therapy thoughts: Achieving fitness goals is especially difficult when snacking is apparently the only effective, inexpensive, convenient de-stresser and I'm stressed almost all the time. Progress: Work on reflecting on progress. Regressive behavior is now minimal. ASK about what's scary about the room. About what else in her life (now or previously) is/was like that. Normalize putting the blankets away EVERY MORNING. Then move to doing it FIRST, along with getting dressed. What do I do about the fact that nothing really seems fun? "Having fun" is something of a chore. I need to talk to my parents about end-of-life plans (particularly funeral arrangements) and I'm not sure how to go about it. I do somewhat trust that they are capable of deciding when they need assisted living but should probably offer help in finding out what sort of place would be best BEFORE it actually becomes necessary.

    14. Just for fun: Start sketching dragon on a pile of books, offering one to the armored knight, & banner that reads "Treasure should not be hoarded / It should be shared."

    WFTY: Priorities. One nice thing about being sick is the decreased appetite. Planning to lift again tomorrow; it'll be interesting to see how much I have to deload.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence. 2022 WFTY: Focus.
