    JFT Monday
    - Up by 7:30am :smiley:
    - Shower :(
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Protein bar for breakfast :smiley:
    - Work meetings & stuff :smiley:
    - Drink more water than soda :(
    - Eye Doctor - did something to my eye when trying to remove a contact. Now my eye is bloody and painful... :smiley:
    - Protein bar for lunch :smiley:
    - Home by 4:30 :smiley:
    - If not raining - bike ride; if raining - spin class :(
    - Dinner at home - turkey taco's - never done ground turkey before. Little nervous about it, but with taco seasoning it should be good. :neutral: did dinner at home, but not tacos. Saving those for when Tim is home.
    - No alcohol :smiley:
    - Bed by 10:00 :smiley:

    Had a good day yesterday, other than the scratched cornea thing. Eye drops will help that. Officially announced my resignation yesterday to the broader group. Most seem happy for me, a couple want to come with me. My last day will be July 7. Then I start at the new company July 10. Just the weekend to regroup between the two. I'm working really hard to get things here in good shape so the next person isn't screwed.

    Took mom to the periodontist this morning. She lost one of her front teeth last week, and we are looking at implants. She's getting a partial for now. If she likes it, we'll just stick with it. It was $200, the implants (2 teeth with bridge) is $4000. She has the money, but no need to spend it if she is happy with the cheaper alternative.

    Not much on the agenda tonight. It's raining out, so it feels like a good day for a nap. Tim is working late again tonight, so dinner will just be left over chicken on a salad.

Did talk about assisted living (there's a facility under construction near me). Leaving for ALA tomorrow; NEA July 1. Transfer approved. All kinds of feels about THAT. Tried out for a play.

    @mytime6630 - those quilts are absolutely amazing! You're so funny when you say you don't track when you're doing well...but also don't track when you're not. HA! It's very true of me too - it's when I stop tracking that bad things can start to happen...I'm tracking pretty carefully right now because my calories are so low. I want to make sure I get what's coming to me! ha ha

    @pridesabtch - that corn salad looks so good! I do a version of that for a summer salad, it's also a great dish to bring to a BBQ and is perfect with some grilled shrimp. It's good with some grilled zucchini mixed up with it too.

    Very long day at work yesterday, worked until 11pm. Thankfully didn't have any trouble sleeping and stayed in bed an extra hour...when I don't get enough sleep I am ravenous the whole next day, and I don't want to make any of this harder on me than it needs to be! Made all my goals yesterday, though I didn't eat dinner until 11pm because I just kept thinking I want to be DONE work and relax while I ate. Thankfully I did some good food prep on Sunday so had my "Eggroll in a bowl" ready to go (it's also known as "crack slaw" because it's so darn good. I make it with 99% FF turkey and a nice big bowl is filling and under 200 calories. https://flavormosaic.com/eggroll-in-a-bowl-crack-slaw-recipe/. I love it because there's minimal prep and you dump in a bag of pre-made cole slaw mix - I also add a smaller bag of broccoli slaw to mix up the flavor a little more too. Super yum!

    Anyway, made all my goals for yesterday. And JFT, more of the same:
    stay within calories
    don't eat until 1pm
    moderate workout/stretch
    100 oz water
    hopefully don't work past 7pm, although there's another deadline looming today :(

    -

    Coming to work is getting harder and harder. There is just so much to get finished before I leave. Totally wish I was one of these people who could just say "screw it" and move on, but I have this crazy work ethic that just won't allow it.

    I've now managed to string to good food days, with logging, together. Been a while since I've done that. I may even weigh myself Friday to see how much damage I need to mitigate. I know it's substantial because my cute clothes don't fit anymore. Luckily I kept some of the bigger stuff. Well I had it in a pile to donate, that never got sent. I'm calling it fortuitous at this point. I had dropped 50 pounds, but then something went wrong on my birthday last year and I went back to old habits and eating style. Not sure why I let a single day unravel things, but I did. It's taken me 8 months to get back to any semblance of being on track.

    Tonight is trivia and I need to watch my drinking calories. Hoping if I pre-log the day, I can manage it well. If I know I can only have 2 beers, I can do that. If I'm guessing, I tend to go over. I don't think I'll ever be an intuitive eater...

    JFT Wednesday
    - Up by 7:30 :smiley:

    JFT:
    💠Drink at least 72oz water ✔️
    💠Walk at least 6000 steps (this needs to work back up to 8,000-10,000 eventually) ✔️
    💠No coffee until 8am ✔️
    💠No food until 10am ✔️
    💠No food after 8pm ✔️
    💠Try to fit in a quick workout (even if it's only a 15 minute one) ❌
    💠Husband's Birthday Today! - Make his favorite dinner ✔️
    💠Save enough calories for some ice cream cake ✔️

    I actually did pretty well yesterday. I stayed inside my calorie goals, enjoyed the pasta, and had ice cream cake. I didn't get to my workout but things got busy. I did not let it be an excuse for the rest though. So, definitely a win for starting over again.

    @mytime6630 My problem is that if I fall a little bit or have a random hour off course, I will log it and move on. If I’m falling more than that I won’t log it. Like if I don’t acknowledge it, it never happened. When I do that for a month or two I’m a mess.
    Also, I LOVE your project picture!!! Those are a gorgeous quilts

    @pridesabtch I hope you love your new job!!!

    @clicketykeys I love your #8 about the water. 😹 🌊

    @emgracewrites HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

    Good morning! So on my weekend trip to my sister's house for her daughter's graduation, something happened that has never happened before...I stayed totally on plan!! I didn't even intend to, I told myself I'd just eat moderately but not try to stay on this fasting thing I have going on because it would be too hard. And then I just went ahead and did it anyway!! I feel like there should be an award ceremony for me this morning :D . I mean truth be told the food wasn't anything great - hotdogs and hamburgers and a lot of store-bought sides I don't care for liked baked beans and egg/potato salad (although she did have a big bowl of my favorite chips I gave a wide berth) but I sort of expected her to put out some kind of garden salad and she had said she'd be grilling lots of different meat, so that was my plan for dinner. I had brought a few meals from home that got me through the rest of the weekend, but I didn't want to make a big scene at the party scrounging in her fridge to make something healthy...so I just at a plate of the veggie/fruit platter once the other guests moved onto the main meal stuff. No cake or ice cream (though I did steal one of her greek yogurts from the fridge & put a little chocolate sauce on that. perfect!) No alcohol was offered so that solved that temptation! And I stayed on track the rest of the weekend after coming home. And as my reward I weighed myself yesterday, and exactly one week after starting this Fast 800 I am down 10 pounds!!! Yes, at least half of that is water whoosh but I have never had a whoosh that big ever in my life!! So it will be interesting to see what week 2 brings...but I am MOTIVATED for sure!!!!

    JFT:
    don't eat till 1pm
    stay within calories
    100 oz water
    pool workout

    This is brilliant! There might not be a ceremony (that bit made me laugh 😂) but you have all our encouragement and I, for one, am proud of you! Keep it up!!

    Hi everyone!

    I need to get back to tracking and paying attention.
    I have been under tremendous stress and it has affected every part of my life.
    Thankfully I am currently on a stress leave from work and now that I know where I stand for my rights I am breathing a bit better today.

    I am almost out of onederland and I swore I would never get there again. I am disappointed with myself.

    DH has also decided he needs to get back on track too so hopefully we can do it together.

    I will start small because I know that I have a couple of strange days coming up.

    JFT - Wed June 21
    1.5L of water
    Log all food
    15 minutes of movement

    Glad to see you back!!! It is so easy to get off track.. but it helps if hubby is also on board. Since my hubby has a aneurysm.. he also is wanting to lose 10 pounds. Really helps a lot!
    You can do it .. we both did it before... we know how!! You take good care of yourself .. stress can cause so many health problems.

    Sorry things have been so stressful for you. Glad you have the option to take leave. Illness/difficulties functioning brought on by stress are just as real as physical illnesses. Both take a little time off every now and then to heal from. Like you I'm working to get back on track. So far this week has been good, but I'm only 3 days in. Good luck to both of us!

    • Post weekly weigh-in on MFP 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.

    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP

    Did much better with water today, and got my serving of fruit in. I ordered vegetables when we went out to dinner but they didn’t taste very good so I didn’t end up eating them. I’ll be sure to work in more veggies tomorrow.

    Thank you for all the birthday wishes 😊 Hope everyone is doing well
