    Thank you for the excellent suggestions, @pupowl. I also enjoyed the video and will checkout the website. I agree that chunking big projects into manageable amounts is better, and also following an intermittent fasting routine.

    @itadakimasu7 - I sometimes tell myself that scrubbing the floor and other household tasks can be my exercise, but it’s more fun to meet my friends and teammates for a row or soccer. I love the photos you send of your outdoor adventures and look forward to weekend bike rides and hikes once my downsizing project is complete.

    We improved again in the last game of the tournament. Just one more to go!

    @murdog3t -- what is cohort? A study? I'm curious! :-D

    I downloaded a walk app and a core fitness app, I'm going to give that a go, but I'm going to be kinda busy this week. I had planned a small vegetarian meal for Thanksgiving (home made classic cheese pizza) but my kids (age 26 and 23) might be bringing in a 15lb turkey (I'm wondering if they know they have to a. purchase it ahead and b. DEFROST it) -- I'm guessing they have no clue, haha, so I'm looking forwards to seeing how this shakes out. :) They've been tight lipped about their plan maybe because there is no plan...we'll roll with it. I love my kids, they're just the best.

    I have my mill in the mail off eBay, it's a classic heavy iron hand crank grain mill. I'm going to clean and setup for bread making. I've invited over my daughter (26) to make artisan bread(s) today. I'll try to post some photos. I haven't done this before so not sure how it will turn out. It is 4x more expensive to mill ones own grain then to buy premium store flour I found out, sure I can improve that in the future. Ouch. Okay - signing off and getting busy! Woot!

    Monday steps 4062. Left knee is really sore and painfully today. I'll be glad for that knee replacement come January.

    I didn't have a good day for eating today.I went into town today as I had booked a tour around a theatre I go to regularly.I treated myself to a theatre card membership where you pay an annual fee but then get discounts & pay no card fees etc.I love musical theatre so I wanted to make the most of my membership & see lots of shows.The tour was really interesting & took you back stage & a chat with some of the stage set staff.Tomorrow I'm going to see Hamilton.Im super excited,I'm going on my own as there weren't many seats left.Will see if it lives up to the hype.
    I ate out for lunch & dinner not yet worked out my calories.Did a Dance class tonight but went out to eat with some friends from the class & a couple of drinks so fingers crossed I've walked off some of the calories.
    Glad you enjoyed Mexico @JenHul yes I'm with @Itadakimasu7 tell us more 😀
    Good luck with your flour mill @Itadakimasu7 hope your kids figure out the turkey

    Hey y'all:

    Lots of errand running and appointments today...my pest control service came and sprayed the house...then I took Lil Miss Betty to her very first/annual vet appointment. She weighs a whopping 8.6 pounds and is completely healthy. She got two vaccines and didn't even flinch...got her nails trimmed...she was a very good girl today! She came home and ate, had a few "good girl" treats and then laid down to take a nap. I love my girl...

    After three days in a row of 20k+ steps, I'm only planning 10k today. I'm tired. I am currently in 2nd place in the competition at work, but I can't compete with someone who's doing 36k daily...just can't...so I'll keep doing what I can and accept 2nd place as best I can do. We shall see! Contest runs until Dec. 10th.

    Ate my first meal at home today, then ate out for dinner...likely a little over in calories...

    Enjoy your week everyone!
    Jessica
