    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    January 2019: 186.0
    February 2019: 187.0
    Today: 194.4

    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: Mary Poppins Nov 22. Something in December - Check and add.
    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. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.

    Trying to get back into the swing of things. I've been having difficulty walking since the spring, so it's been hard to get in the exercise that I need. I'm still in significant pain, but I just have to get moving. I bought a new iPod as a motivation, so now I have to follow through. :)

    I just went to the gym tonight for the first time in months. All I did was walk, but at least I made it through the door and hit 10,000 steps for the day. Goals for tomorrow:

    Tuesday:
    1. 10,000 steps
    2. Start tracking liquids
    3. Walk on both work breaks...heck, TAKE both work breaks
    4. Swim at least half a mile
    5. 6 hours of sleep

    @Faebert Awesome milestone reaching 1000 days logging on MFP. The fact that you check in & are mindful while on maintenance is a BIG deal, even if you don't always log food or work out. Remember balance. You are my inspiration!

    Recap M 11/18
    1) X-trained (circuit/weights) before work = :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings = Fitbit 10,202 steps, 250+ 14/14 boom! 41 floors :smiley:
    3) Eating up leftovers today / prelogged food so stick w/ plan / net calories zero / 14c water = Looked like net cals were just green, then realized I clicked on wrong food earlier in day... net calories -43 :) sodium green :mrgreen: sugar -28 (mostly fruit/veg) fiber & protein good :) 12c water
    4) Conflict of Interest forms :) / email records request :) surprised to receive docs within 30 minutes so spent day completing review / verify 2019 CPE report :) / clear up Inbox backlog no time / Cognos training? no time / other? :) finally remembered to water office plants
    5) To-do's: 5:00 parade meeting :) / calculate 2020 FSA w/h & submit form no time / put away clean dishes :) / fold line-dried laundry & take upstairs :) / call Breadsmith w/ Thanksgiving order :) / meal plan & grocery list :) / other? :) got out hand/foot warmers & clothes layers for Sat. parade, decluttered some in family room, went thru mail pile, updated green notebook, cuddled w/ Kitty & still upstairs before 10
    6) Unplug 9:00 :) / FLOSS :smiley: sometimes the only reason I do this is to give myself a smiley on this list / RETAINERS :smiley: ditto / bed & tv off 10:20 :) (rest day T)

    JFT T 11/19 ~ Rest day today... have my workouts planned to accommodate work/other schedule this week
    1) Move hourly / stairs breaks / 5 somethings
    2) Meals & snacks prelogged / stick w/ plan / net calories zero / 14c water
    3) PA-F initiation memo / clear Inbox backlog / Cognos training
    4) Evening: grocery shop / mail birdseed order / mail zoo renewal form / pick up kitty food at vet / calculate 2020 FSA w/h & submit form / wash dishes / other?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / bed & tv off 10:20 (treadmill W before work)

    Thanks for the words of congratulations @littleblackskirt and @cschmitz110515! I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be as regular on here if it were not for the awesome members of JFT!

    Another late post today - work is just so hectic. But I actually only have a couple of weeks now until surgery and then a long period of time off. I’m trying to make sure I hand everything over totally ship shape and organised. And to stay focused and not get too stressed about what’s ahead...!

    - morning workout ✅
    - Weigh in ✅
    - Pack snacks and schoolbags ✅
    - buy coffee on way to work ✅
    - Early to work - help student set up for observation lesson ✅
