    2. Attend Patchwork Group this morning



    Terri - are you a quilter? Just wondering if this is what your Patchwork group is. I love to quilt and sew. Mostly in the evenings -- now if I can just keep doing this instead of grabbing snacks in between sewing :)

    What a great idea! I feel much of my binge eating or late night snacking is due to boredom sitting in front of the TV, finally " relaxing"... I'm not into quilting but it seems like I need to find something that works for me. Any ideas?

    I do all sorts of crafts, paint watercolours, write poetry. I am an ex-teacher, so I run 4 groups for a local charity and belong to another 10 or so, but will have to put them on hold until I recover from my hip op. I have a new patchwork project, my first full quilt, which I hope will keep me busy. :)

    JFT
    1. Listen to the Doctor/physio and follow there instructions
    2. Go home. Yippee!
    3. Relax. Op went very well! Say the X-ray.

    On track for a speedy recovery :)

    JFT Wed 9/09
    1. Do physio exercises
    2. Get up and move every hour
    3. Be thankful

    Had good days on Wednesday through Saturday. Daily goals were pretty much the same for each day.
    Helped prep some food yesterday which was a great boost. I spent an hour shelling peas. This morning I got up and made myself a cup of tea.

    Forgot to post this yesterday lol. It was Michael's birthday. My daughter has gone off on honeymoon to visit the West of Ireland, a week in Rome then a visit to Amsterdam on her way home. We are looking after her dogs for the two weeks.

    I will work out for 40 minutes
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I am expressing gratitude for the simple thing of covered parking at work, home and at my airport off site parking. Nice to keep my car clean, out of the damaging and hot sun, free from snow and in a more secure environment.

    Solid day

    20% under calorie goal even with losing a battle with a bag of tostitos
    Worked out for 50 minutes. 3 mile walk at 16:40/mile
    Expressed my wellness mantra

    For today:

    I will stay under my new calorie goal and not eat chips
    I will work out for 80 minutes
    I will express my wellness mantra
    I am expressing gratitude for living in a safe, beautiful neighborhood. Feels good to come home every day.

    I am not having much luck with weight loss. I keep losing my motivation and I am so tired after a day at work. I am too tired to worry about calories at the end of the day and mess up much of the time. I am a new empty nester and it so much easier to stop for food on the way home.
    1. 6 glasses of water tomorrow
    2. Do not stop for fast food on the way home from work.
    3. Pack my lunch and pay attention to the calories I am packing.

    Good day. Under, barely under, but still under my new calorie goal. Three days in a row.
    Worked out for 93 minutes including a 3 mile walk at 16:30/mile pace. Able to check off both 3 miles and under 17 minutes on my accomplishment list. Both 5 times in a row.
    Expressed my wellness mantra

    For today:

    I will stay under my new calorie goal. No chips.
    May take the day off from working out.
    I will express my wellness mantra.
    Today I am expressing gratitude for my lovely bride's support on my wellness journey. She's had to adjust, change habits in how she interacts with me. Had Chik-fil-a for dinner last night. In the past she would have brought a shake and cookie knowing it would make me happy. She didn't even ask, just didn't do it.

    Yesterday I ended up eating way under calorie limit because I went to bed so early. Had a headache, had to leave work, slept most the afternoon but then got up and did my workout. Not sure if that was the best idea since it brought my headache back but still happy I got it in.

    Log all food, stay within calorie limit
    Insanity Max 30 workout - plus, some stretching/foam rolling as my back hurts from all that laying around yesterday
    No drinking alcohol
    Groom the dogs
