    Try journalling after work… doesn’t have to be here can be in diary but try i💩

    Rinse and repeat goals. Want to get it right. I think the afterwork snacking is the problem. I think the snack itself (skinny pop popcorn) Is a fine choice… it’s just I need to figure out a way to regulate my volume

    Are you UK? I can't remember. Skinny Pop Popcorn sounds familiar. Maybe we have the same or similar brand here. But we have the big share bags but we also sell multipacks where it's like crisps. So 6x25g bags of popcorn.
    Would that be better in terms of regulation?

    It's like for me, I've bought myself kids snackbox raisins. So I get 12 little small boxes of 14g of raisins. And I know at most I can have 2 but I normally have 1. But if I had a bag of raisins.. well who knows how many I'd get through!

    And I also buy Peppa Pig branded crisps. My girls laugh at me thinking I like Peppa Pig but in reality they're made out lentils not potato so they're actually healthier 😂
    They're just like Wotsits (Cheetos for the US, do you even have Wotsits over there? 😂😂)

    JFT Wednesday 10th May

    Think before you eat yes
    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green no, 8 over
    Back exercises no, forgot
    Housework, kitchen! yes

    Another rainy day. Really need to blitz the kitchen, it gets in a mess so quickly when I prefer to be outside.

    JFT Thursday 11th May

    Think before you eat
    Log everything
    Stay in the green, or at least under maintenance
    Walk
    Pack for tomorrow
    Sort out plants
    Phone internet provider
    Make big decision - make phone calls

    I'm walking with a friend today, and then we are going out for lunch. A much postponed small celebration, so not sure I'll be able to log correctly.
    I'm going away again tomorrow for a few days so need to prep for that. I've lots of small plants grown from seed hardening off outside, it's always a worry about keeping them alive when I'm not here. My sons are not gardeners, they will water if requested but it can be a bit random. Can't be helped though, I need to go and see roofers and electrician, and check on scaffolder's timeline. Must remember to show son where the plants are tonight.

    13. Therapy thoughts: Reflecting on progress – "No snacks at school" definitely helps. Been lifting regularly, cardio in the AM. Making progress on staying in the room; Cora got curtains and a soft area rug. 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. Got some good news finally; definitely helped to turn things around. Back on track! Keeping going! I'm tired, alas, and I'm not sure why because I actually slept through the night for once.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence. 2022 WFTY: Focus.

    JFT Wednesday
    - Puppy at 4:00 (actually, she got up at 3:00) :smiley:
    - Work by 7:00 :smiley:
    - Global call at 7:00 :smiley:
    - Work stuff :smiley:
    - Puppy at lunch :neutral: Tim did it
    - Leave work by 3:30 :smiley:
    - Grab kit and such for gravel ride :smiley:
    - Gravel ride :neutral: We rode, but didn't do gravel
    - Dinner/Trivia :smiley: Dinner with bike folks
    - Limit 2 beers (regular not giant) :smiley: Zero beer
    - Bed early :(

    Yesterday was a good day calorie wise and even mostly for food choices. I did have a Nutty Buddy after my ride, but was well within calorie goal. Got ready for ride and Kit looked awful, but that is what it is. I'm just too fluffy for spandex right now. That may have been the kick I needed to get things in gear. Showed up for the ride and there was a new person which was great. It meant it was a very relaxed ride, and that we didn't quite make it out to the gravel section, but it was fun riding with the girls. Afterwards, we went to Q'Doba for dinner and socialization.

    Down side of yesterday is that Tim found out the doctor wants to do another replacement for his left shoulder instead of a repair. The replacement surgery last fall was awful and very hard on Tim, but the replacement has a 20% change of not working or failing within 2 years. Despite the risk, I think he has decided to do the repair, but the whole thing is messing with him mentally. He was in a very bad place last night, and I was of no help.

    House is a wreck, laundry is piled and overflowing out of baskets. I may take a half day today and work from home tomorrow to try to make a dent in it. It's just one more thing that stresses hubby out, especially with Sierra coming in this weekend. She will be in either Sunday or Monday to pick up Gia. She is excited and nervous to have the dog up there with her.

    JFT Thursday
    - Work by 8:00 :( Not even close
    - Protein bar for breakfast
    - Staff Meetings
    - Work on BIC presentations
    - Take half day
    - Work on Laundry and floors
    - Go to mom's to get bills
    - Evening ride or trivia or just more housework (Tim's call)
    - Log food
    - Stay within calories
    - Limit 2 beers if we go out
    - Bed by 10:30

    Have a good Thursday y'all!

    Left home early this morning and won't be able to log this weekend as I've no scales. However I only have healthy food with me so should be okay.
    Have a great weekend everyone.

    Hi everyone, is anyone interested in becoming MFP friends, to get motivated by watching others grind their goals? I don’t usually track my workouts here but it reads them in from my Apple Watch. Other than that, I’m trying to track my macros diligently and hope to see results soon. My goal: losing fat, gaining strong muscles, I follow a custom made training plan and try to keep active. I live in France and in Germany. Nice to meet you all!

    @Kykybinford welcome. Just start posting, everyone is welcome. Most people say what they plan to do "Just for today", the idea being we are only committing to one day, but all those days put together makes big changes.

    My day has not been so good food-wise. I've been anxious and have snacked on crisps tonight.

    DH drove me to flower arranging on Thursday afternoon. My left leg was complaining after driving on Tuesday. I think it was using the clutch pedal that aggravated it. Just need to take things slowly.
