    JFT, 11/9/19

    1. Log all food :)I didn't think I would stay under but my dinner was fewer calories than I was figuring in my head. I didn't even need any exercise to keep under. That makes me seriously happy because it's been so long since I've been able to do that.
    2. Drink 96oz of water :)At least that amount. Probably more. Not sure the exact amount though. I tend to stop keeping track after I've hit my goal.
    3. Unload/load/run the dishwasher :)I can't begin to tell you guys just how much I am in love with my dishwasher! Lol. It didn't even come with the house originally. My former boss gave it to me after she redid her kitchen and Dad installed it for us before we moved in.

    Last night was quiet at home. I took a nap in the afternoon. My brother texted me while I was sleeping. So I answered him back and we texted for about 2 hours. We don't have much of a relationship, let alone a friendship but it was nice to talk to him. We are so different in so many ways that it can just be hard to have a decent conversation with him. But yesterday was subdued and we talked about all sorts of different topics and I was able to put my foot down when he wanted to bring up topics that I didn't want to discuss. So I guess I'm finally growing up. Lol.

    Matt came home late from work but that's okay. He was helping a new hire who has a disability clean up and things. I don't mind that at all. Lol. I didn't start dinner until after he told me he was leaving so it was perfectly timed. Lol. I'm still not feeling great, definitely better than a few days ago, but still not all the way better. Honestly, we don't have the money for me to go to the doctor right now or the time. If I really don't feel better then I might go on Thursday when I don't have a client in the afternoon. I know that that is a long way away though. But such is life when you're poor and work 2 jobs. Lol. We'll see.

    Today is going to be a nice, quiet day. I don't have anything to do except maybe some laundry which I'm going to do at my parent's house. I'm probably going to read and hopefully do some writing today. Matt has a ten-hour work shift today so he won't be home until after 9 pm.

    I'm going to keep my goals super simple again today.

    JFT, 11/10/19

    1. Log all my food
    2. 94oz of water
    3. 2 loads of laundry

    I read in our news with Brexit looming that one of the political parties want to sell our NHS and join up with Big Pharma? I doubt it will happen, I don't think the country would stand for it. If it didn't happen though I don't know how we'd afford it either. The thought terrifies me! I hope you get some money together soon to get an appt. I don't know how's much it costs but I would help if I had the funds!
    Good morning! Yesterday was granddaughter, H's, birthday party at noon and then Tim and I went bumming at some thrift shops. I found a nice room divider (3 panel) to use in the basement to block off my sewing room from the rest of the basement. Was pretty happy about that! My goal for the winter is to remodel the basement into a more welcoming living space. Right now it is finished with a ceiling, paneling and linoleum flooring from the 1960's, but it's dark and not real welcoming. I want to brighten it up this winter and remodel/redecorate.

    I feel like yesterday was wasted because I didn't get anything done around here, but at the same time it was a nice time spent with my husband bumming so how can that be a wasted day, right? Today I plan to lay out my quilt blocks and finalize how I want to sew them together and then begin sewing them together. I also hope to work on bills, prep veggies for the week so I can grab and go, and if time before the Packer game I want to run to Burlington to see if I can find a few new pairs of work slacks. If I don't get my *kitten* off the couch soon, I likely won't make it! LOL!

    @HEGoddard0928 I'm almost as excited as you are that you have a dishwasher!!! Except I miss you scolding yourself for not doing the dishes! That used to give me a giggle! :smile: I seem to remember you saying you pubished a book on Amazon a few years back, didn't you? What was the name of that one? Did it do well for you? I always wanted to be an author so it intrigues me that you write!


    J4T / Sunday
    • Journal every bite - good, bad & ugly
    • Drink 80+ oz of water
    • 15 minutes of cardio
    • 15 minutes of strength training
    • Prep for tomorrow: clothing / lunchbag packed / Binder updated for new provider tomorrow
    • UNPLUGGED SUNDAY except MFP
    • Bed early with evening routine: Skin care / Gratitude journal / DO reading / JM podcast / SA daily reading / pick a book to read (still haven't found a new book to read yet...).

    Word of 2019: TENACITY I will NOT give up!

    So I couldn't stop laughing my head off at your post!!!
    And all because "bumming" means a totally different thing in the UK LOLOLOL

    DO NOT feel guilty for resting, ever. You're growing a human being!!!

    And also, I found that when I was walking around the baby would be asleep, like my movements were rocking her to sleep. But when I sat down and was still she'd wake up and start kicking. I know you have the placenta thing (is it anterior or posterior?) but it's a very good excuse for a sit down! ;)

    Thanks, Bex! Sometimes i just start thinking of all the other things I could be doing and it takes over my mind. I had such a productive day though I am happily putting my feet up now. And yep, have hardly felt him all day but hes been kicking away since I sat. I'm feeling him more and more, or I'm just more keen to what is actually kicks now. I feel him low and on the sides, and especially at night! Its anterior so placenta is on the front of my belly.

    Morning ladies!

    Just gonna say that the only goal I got done yesterday was the laundry. Lol. But for once in a really long time I also folded and put it all away too! I read a book and a half too. Lol.

    Stepped in the scale this morning and realized I lost another 2lbs over night. I know it's all water weight but now I've caught up to Matt! I haven't been eating as much recently but I am feeling LOADS AND LOADS better than I was last week so that is definitely a blessing. I feel pretty today too. I took a shower and blow-dried my hair so is all nice. No makeup but that's okay. I should use it but I'm not very good at it so it's just a time suck. Lol. It also helps that the pants that usually fit me nicely are baggy this morning! Woohoo! Lol

    Okay, I'm about to walk into school. Into goals!

    JFT, 11/11/19

    1. Figure out dinner and prelog
    2. Eat the lunch I brought with me!!!!!
    3. Empty/load/run the dishwasher

    NAME Ellie
    SW 180
    GW 175
    CW 11/11 180

    I sometimes wonder why I'm still coming onto MFP, as I'm really not making the effort. I hope it is keeping weight in my mind so I don't go up. For the first half of this year I was concentrating on achieving less back and leg pain, and being happy and grateful. Now, with all the problems with parents, I just feel as if all the joy has been sucked out of my life. I get up in the morning and my heart sinks knowing what the day will hold. Don't get me wrong, I want my parents cared for and I'm doing everything I need to. I just don't always want to do it, it's relentless, every day. When I need to take the occasional day away for my business I feel guilty. I miss doing the things I used to. And there's no happy ending on the horizon, I know it will get worse. Ugh, so sorry for moaning, it's not something you can really discuss in real life.

    So, JFT Monday 11th November

    Parents - visits, laundry, errands
    Drink enough
    Stay under maintenance
    Bags to charity shop

    I'm joining this a little late (!) but I figure the last 7 weeks of the year is better than nothing. I've been all over the place this year with emotional eating and just need to establish a better routine alongside a very busy job, lots of travel for work and regular (ish) exercise which generally includes lots of swimming, occasional running and some cycling. So, JFT

    1. Eat 3 meals, no snacks
    2. Complete MFP diary
    3. Walk 8,000 steps

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    January 2019: 186.0
    February 2019: 187.0
    Today: 194.2

    Ongoing plans/ideas behind the cut
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for On Writing (Stephen King), Dying for a Paycheck (Robin Hardman), The Prince (tr. Tim Parks, Russell Price, or Robert Adams), The Secret Adversary (Christie).
    2. E2: What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Create vocabulary lists for each unit that come from the texts used: Animal Farm, Julius Caesar, Wes Moore, I Am Malala. Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Schedule assessments for Fall 2019; plan out return times. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to PB for comments due Friday. PB usernames 6 digits, no 19 or 20s, no birthdates. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri.
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week -Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. NOTE: ATTENDED PRE FLEX DAY.
    6. Medical: Dentist Apr 30 8 AM but check on meetings and RS. Onco Apr ???. PCP Schedule for July. ObG schedule for October. PCP - allergy shots?
    7. Theater: What's next?
    8. House: Mineral oil on tile spots. Check with D about ceiling.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy new bikes and bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter.

    WFTY: Climbing. I GOT MY NEW TATTOO! But I forgot to bring a T-shirt to change into after school so I can run inside. Fortunately the forecast has changed so that it's not supposed to start raining until later, so I guess I'll go home, change, and then run. I don't know whether it's okay to lift with a new tattoo - at least in areas that would work the muscles under that skin. So I think I'm just going to hold off.

    Had a really nice family day so not sweating the goals I did not meet. I do need to get back into enrichment games for the dog since outside time is minimal. I have a few habits id liken to incorporate and refresh, that being one, and also breathing and stretching techniques. Im going to purchase a video called "spinning babies" which is designed specifically to get baby into a good laboring position and ready mom for a comfortable birth. My only real birth plan right now is to be as ready and healthy as possible for a natural birth, but also be open to any interventions and pain management needed. DH is working til 5 now, long days 6am-5pm but that gives me 30 minutes of alone time to focus on exercises and meditation.

    We successfully sanded probably 1000 discs in around 2 hours yesterday. My cousins industrial very expensive sander saved us so much time.

    Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada so I’m not working. I have to go get some groceries and then we are going to sort the wood slices and then I’ll go do a finishing sand on a bunch of them.

    I think that is the best birth plan ever. Honestly, I think it's good to have an idea for one but just remember it's probably not going to go as planned lol!
    Ive seen where women have planned it to every detail and when it's gone completely off their ideal plan it's upset them in a way? Which I get, but there's kind of no planning for it, there's no knowing what could happen apart from the fact that one way or another, a baby is coming out lol!
    So being open to interventions and pain reliefs is good, kind of a go-with-the-flow birth plan! Which sounds like you have!

    I hope you don't mind me talking about it too much, I just love babies haha
