    Hour commitment - not feeling well. After my yogurt, I won't eat again until after 5 pm. I can still have my dose of metamusal.

    Looking at a very long workday today, complete with a solid 8 hours of meetings. And after that I need to do a fair amount of housework before I leave for vacation in a couple days. Praying my stomach cooperates today and doesn’t give me any added stress.

    Hope everyone is doing well! I've been MIA for a while, but after throwing all my good intentions out the window for the past month, I'm re-committing today. The combo plate of our car being sideswiped & then being in the shop for 3 weeks (so no pool), plus the kitchen reno that lasted 4 weeks, and then our vacation last week - I just stopped trying to be honest! But now the kitchen is done, the car is back and vacation is over - time to focus on my health again. DH and I got to the pool, I'm about to prep my egg whites for the week's breakfasts and commit to no alcohol at home (again.) The good news is the kitchen came out better than I'd even hoped - even though the cabinets were just painted and not replaced, it looks entirely new! Finally got my white kitchen! :smile:
    JFT:
    stay within calorie goal
    100 oz of water
    no alcohol
    pool - CHECK! :)

    JFT Monday
    - Up by 6:00 :smiley:
    - Early Meetings :smiley:
    - Work on complaints
    - Home at lunch for dog - he has a UTI :(
    - Work on training material :smiley:
    - Leave work by 3:30 :smiley:
    - Give blood :smiley:
    - Home by 5:30 :smiley:
    - Chill / do laundry :(
    - Bed by 10:30 :(

    Yesterday ended up pretty good despite the anxiety. I ordered some new workout gear and decided to get my act together. Gave blood which was a little trying. There was a really new tech, he was just signed off at the beginning of the month, he was the one hooking me up. He didn't get the needle in quite right the first time so he dug around a bit and then asked for help. Luckily, I'm pretty patient, but after about 5 minutes I was getting concerned. When I got home I took a long nap instead of doing laundry. When I got up hubby wanted to go out to eat so we did. Other than that, not much happened.

    Today is graduation day for my baby girl. It's hard to believe she is getting ready to go out on her own in just a few months.

    JFT Tuesday
    - Work stuff :smiley:

    - Leave work by 4:30
    - Pick up mom at 6:00

    JFT 5/22
    - log all food ✅ Had to guess on some of the quantities because I lost track of how much junk food I grazed on.
    - 40 oz of water ✅
    - Yoga ✅
    - Wash dishes ❌ Ran out of steam
    - Laundry ✅ It’s clean but it’s not folded

    11 hours of work today. My reward is getting up super early tomorrow to get even more work done before day 2 of this stupid quality audit that’s been taking up all my time.

    Had to change my vacation plans too - I was planning to spend a day exploring Annapolis, but it’s the same day that the commissioning for the Naval Academy is happening, so I’m skipping it and spending more time in DC instead. Hopefully it’ll all work out for the best. I need this break so badly.

    JFT 5/23
    - log all food
    - 40 oz of water
    - Wash dishes
    - Laundry
    - Pack for vacation

    So second day turned not so good Monday…I’ve been really doing well with weight and exercise. I admit I could/ need to make better nutrition choices as I know my protein intake has been poor but I’ll get there. The kick in the pants though is that I was coming down this trail in the mountains with some friends of mine and my right pinky finger essentially took all of the impact between the handlebar and a boulder jutting out. The good news is the bikes fine. The bad is I broke the finger and turns out you kinda need them all to ride fast off road. So I’m off the trails for at least 3 weeks. I tried doing a few pull ups. I can do them but the way I have to do it is gonna just end up hurting me. Tried dumbells at this point they are a no-go. I can ride the trainer. I can run (Teigan’s happy about that). But was really on fire. I’m gonna take this as a message to wake up call and choose to grow (I hope). Part of that is gonna require me to really stay focused. Hoping getting back to this on the regular will help

    Goals for today
    Under 2k calories
    10-12!glasses of water
    No beer
    Log all food
    No trainer or treadmill today is a rest day
    Anytime I get negative I’m gonna make a choice to find at least one positive thing

    Well my automatic status updates have been rather amusing the past couple.of days. I apparently bought a bike and cycled and ran for a whopping 1 min 😂.

    So I'm disconnecting Google Fit from MFP.
    The reality is me and ash have been going for nice long walks in the country park behind our house.
    We've been every day for the last 3 days ranging from 1hr to 2hr walks. Today was a 2 hr one and everything from my hips downwards aches! And I still gotta do a 2 mile school run yet 💀

    The dog has been with us the last two days, joining us on his own fitness journey. He's a bit tubby, our fault because we haven't walked him enough but it's nice to be able to do it now
    Better late than never.

    JFT Tuesday
    - Work stuff :smiley:
    - Log food :smiley:
    - Leave work by 4:30 :smiley:
    - Pick up mom at 6:00 :smiley:
    - Graduation at 7:00 :smiley:
    - Dinner after graduation :smiley:
    - Bed by 10:30 :smiley:

    Yesterday was stressful, but not really bad. Anytime I have to spend with my mom is tough. I know that sounds bad, but she is such a negative person. Graduation was really nice. It was a beautiful day and they had it at the football stadium.

    Tonight is trivia, but I think I'll try to get a long wog (walk/jog) in before I go. My new shoes haven't come in yet, so it will be more of a walk, but that's okay. Eating is pretty on point so far today, and even though I'm going to the bar tonight they have a salad I really like and if I drive I won't drink more than 2 beers. Calories will be in the green.

    Oh I got an accountability buddy. We'll do weekly weigh ins and keep each other motivated. At least that is the hope.

    JFT Wednesday
    - Work stuff
    - Eat breakfast
    - Talk to accountability partner
    - Eat lunch
    - Log food
    - Train new process owners
    - Leave work by 5:00
    - Do a 5k wog
    - Go to trivia
    - home by 10:00
    - bed by 10:30

    Yeah, none of these happened today. Vacation might not happen either. Spent most of the afternoon with extreme stomach pain. Managed half a slice of plain toast for dinner and even that is making my belly feel very unsettled. I’ve prayed so many times to not be in pain, but I guess God has a different plan for me. I just wish I knew what it was and how this suffering factors into it.

    1. Do 27 Surya namaskar
    2. Do Yoga nidhra meditation just before going to bed
    3. Study 5 pages from my core java book
    4. Complete my career episodes
