    Keep trusting God and stay at peace while waiting out a couple health test results. Health concerns tend to trigger my panic attacks. I tend to go to the worse case option before actually getting the diagnosis from the doctor. Then find out I wasted my time worrying because the test came back negative and I had nothen to fear.

    I, too, have a tendency to worry and my mind seems to automatically jump to the worst possible outcome. Most times, it's all for nothing! Worry is something I've had to work on for ages. I have a little reminder at home that says "To worry is to not trust God." Still, it's very hard to do. I read Phil. 4:6-7 often: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Prayers for you and good test results!

    I'm late today but better late than never!

    JFTuesday
    - log everything - Yes!
    - refill water bottle at least 3 times at work - No... Ugh
    - stay within calories - Yes!
    - in bed with screens out at 8:30. My screen was out but my DH had the TV on until 9:00.

    JFT Wednesday
    - log everything
    - stay within calories
    - in bed at 8:30 with screens out
    - prep for day 4 of weight loss journal.

    Has anyone done the Beck Diet Weightloss Workbook? I'm writing a workbook right now so thought it would be good research. But, it seems like it might actually help me. So, I started the first two days over the weekend but then haven't gone back since Monday. Anyway, if anyone has done it and has reviews, good or bad, I'm open!

    So I've logged in every day but not logged all my food or posted goals!
    Having a pretty €rappy time tbh!

    OH didn't get paid properly so we were left skint! No money for food!
    We had some food in but would not last between 4 of us for another whole week!
    So I was skipping breakfast and skipping lunch, surviving on tea and ryvitas and a bit of Easter chocolate.
    I've lost 4lb, which I'm happy about but not happy about how it was achieved.
    But I was gonna make sure my kids and OH ate before me!
    Fortunately the money came in last night so I went out and got pizza and dough balls for me and OH! Yum!

    So my goals are
    Goals for Thursday
    - Be in the green
    - Drink more water today
    - Go shopping
    - Check on baby bird in garden Never mind its dead..
    - Stretches today - no vigorous exercise

    April Goals
    March Weight: 12st 6lb
    Current Weight: 12st 5lb
    Target Weight: 10st 7lb
    Lbs to lose this month: 4

    Strive for progress, not perfection.

    April 19
    Exercise 20 minutes :) took a 2 mile walk with dog.
    24 ounces water :/
    7000 steps :)
    Log and stay under goals
    Keep trusting God and stay at peace while waiting out a couple health test results. Health concerns tend to trigger my panic attacks. I tend to go to the worse case option before actually getting the diagnosis from the doctor. Then find out I wasted my time worrying because the test came back negative and I had nothen to fear. :) Doing pretty good at not panicking. Just waiting. Thank you to all the encouragement and prayers.


    April 20
    Two hour test today but should get results at the end of the test.
    Still waiting on the results of the test I had on Monday.
    Also need to get ready for a weekend trip with my youngest daughter and her school band. We leave tomorrow morning. I am one of the chaperones. I also need to get things organized so the rest of the family can manage without me for the weekend.
    This evening it is off to the Mother in laws to help her
    Log all food and stay under goal
    Drink my water!!!
    That's about all the time I have today.

    Recap W 3/19
    1) Eat fewer calories than Tues. = only 6 calories lower so no, not really :/
    2) During another noon webinar, pace in office = 4,155 steps :smiley:
    3) Cut up carrots and celery for tzatziki and pack lunch for Thurs. = yes :smile:
    4) Catch up on laundry = hubby washed his work clothes, so I only had 2 loads :smile:
    5) Floss = yes Day 2 :smiley:

    Don't know why, I slept terrible last night. Thunderstorms didn't help. At 3 a.m. went downstairs and, instead of folding the socks and underwear still in laundry basket, I ate Easter candy and mixed nuts. Ack!!! :#:s

    Just for today R 3/20
    1) Log everything, including 3 a.m. eating...need to focus on CICO and meal-planning again
    2) Pack up all Easter candy and mixed nuts...if it's out of sight, I do so much better
    3) Floss
    4) I'm sure my long weekend off / late nights has something to do with my sleep being off now that I'm back to work, so bedtime by 10:15 no TV

    Fell off the wagon somewhat, hence not being on here for a few days.... didn't want to admit to my bad behaviour!

    Not sure why it happened except that my morale is quite low at the moment for various reasons and I think that lowered my willpower.

    Picking myself up and starting again - just for today! (It probably is JFT as well as I'm going to France for a long weekend and I refuse to miss the opportunity to eat delicious French food. But I'll be back next week - i can't do much damage in 3 days right?!)

    Today's commitments -
    - Log everything I eat
    - No snacks outside meals except Ryvita
    - G&T only at pub
    - Alternate alcoholic drinks and soft drinks
    - Get out for walk at lunch

    - Stay positive
    - Be productive - no procrastinating!
    - Start write listing things that ARE good about work

    Happy Friday everyone!

    Wow! That really stinks! Glad the money finally came through. I agree that it is really hard to lose the weight that way! Hope your spirits are also improved!

    Glad to hear that your one test came back good. Been thinking of you.

    You are very brave to chaperone the 8th grade band! Good luck with that one!
