    Not in the morning, tbh it's best to let her cry it out in the morning because she always goes sleep. I just can't leave her on her own downstairs when I take the girls to school. It's not so bad when markets there too.
    Cause of his disorders, he just needs to get rest and then he'll be fine for the day, but if he has to get up he'll be in a foul mood all day so we agreed that I would do it every morning. Sounds weird but I'd rather him be able to help me through the day than not at all.
    I can get up early, I might be grumpy because I am NOT a morning person but I can deal with it lol!

    A lot of work for you in the morning then, but I totally get why it works for you if he can then help later in the day.

    I think I must be a morning person, I always got up early for work, but I'm completely flagging by 9pm :)

    Haha I probably would be better in the morning if I didn't go to bed at 1am to get up at 7.30 LOL

    But I dunno, when the girls are in bed at like half 7 latest, sometimes me and ash have a different tea (like a curry) so we have that after they're in bed then we clean up a bit then watch telly, we don't get any time in the day to chill then I like to play games on my pad lol!!

    First time posting in this! Great idea for a thread.

    My story is that I have gained about 30 pounds in the past three years and I have a lot of special occasions coming up in 2020 that I would really like to be happy in myself for. So here goes!

    JFT Tuesday:
    1. 2 litres of water.
    2. No binge.
    3. Prep meals for tomorrow.
    4. Stay away from unhealthy treats in workplace.
    5. Drink water and not hot chocolate at the break in nightclass.

    You've picked a good time to start then lol! We're doing a "discard 5lb challenge" basically just whoever loses 5lbs first wins and then it starts over. We're on round 5 ATM. But it only started a couple days ago!

    Rules are asking but as the scale shows 5lb loss you win (don't worry about water weight or sickness because weight fluctuates too much)
    Erm, no extreme dieting.
    And just make sure you're scales are accurate and you weigh yourself in the same place and a couple of times to make sure it's right :)

    Good day yesterday all things considered. I did well and ate zero junk during the training course. This course is challenging for me as it is for a field I’m moving into not one that I have a lot of experience in. Most in here are very experienced and my learning curve is steep. Today we are doing a social evening, that will be challenging intake wise.

    JFT Tuesday

    - on time for training
    - No junk at training
    - Mindful at group meals
    - In maintenance ~1600cal
    - No more than 3 beers

    JFT
    1. Log all food ✔
    2. Waters ✔ ive been good on water but my lips are still so chapped :neutral:
    3. Eat packed lunch ✔
    4. Cook dinner at home ✔
    5. Order Spinning Babies Daily Essentials 👎

    8. Fill hot tub to level (find hose) ✔ DH did
    9. Load of DHs laundry ✔
    10. Bed by 9. Lights out by 930 👎

    Was in a mood after work yesterday. I let it get the better of me...and angrily did chores for longer than I had allotted. Then sat on the couch being sulky. DH was up late doing a test for an engineering opportunity so I also stayed up too late too. But im just riding the waves of my emotions, knowing they come and go pretty fast. I certainly could have downloaded and done daily essentials so no excuse there. I think I'll reassess my goal on that and ease my way into it doing just a few of the practices per day for 2 weeks and then I'll buy the video. I'm really proud to say i havent gained any weight in 2 weeks though! And I feel like I'm getting my groove back as far as healthy habits so i hope to keep up the minimal weight gain!

    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.

    Here are a few pictures of our sons wedding ... and a picture with all our grandchildren now! (We gained 3 more step-grandchildren). Our son is VERY tall ... 6'5", of course, I am 5'11", and hubby is also tall, so no wonder!
    The other picture is of me, my husband, and our 2 biological grandchildren.

    I am a food addict and binge eat still from time to time. I had a half of a half pint of ice cream today when I had envisioned not havi g sugar today. But I did a soulful yoga class and I sat with myself and I tried to offer up some understanding and reframing of my conscious choice to sabotage myself this afternoon.

    Also, I want to say that today is my first day of accountability, and doing an aerobic exercise per day to remind myself that I can commit and be true. Cheers.

    Well.....as you can see I had a less than stellar day yesterday as far as goals go. I could make lots of excuses and say it was because my day at work was stressful and I was exhausted by the time I got home, which is true, but that is no excuse!!! I have to stop making excuses for eating crappy and not exercising! The real reason my day was not good was because I just plain made bad choices and didn't care enough to fight it. Today is going just as stressful at work but I will NOT go home tonight and just eat whatever I can find to shove in my mouth (ahem...chocolate chips???? Really, Tracie????).

    I went to Fresh Thyme Market and made a salad for lunch, and had a nice cup of soup, so at least I didn't go for fast food today. I'm working on site at a clinic today training a new doctor so it's not as easy to pack a lunch since I'm in her office all day. I drank coffee until noon, so now I'm trying to make myself get some water in. I'm like you, @mytime6630 ---I struggle with this too!
