    I agree with Cake fail lol Yesterday was my mom's birthday so we had cake and streak and shrimp and egg rolls. I think overall it came out to about 2000 calories only because it was my only meal of the day lol. Today I will be back on it and do better. the egg rolls are always my downfall cause I could easily snack on those all day long. Committed to hydrating and eating a low carb meal today!

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of January:
    Today: n/a

    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 discussion board 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: 1984.
    8. House: Crawl space repairs. After that - siding? Or perhaps bathroom floor.
    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.
    11. Family: Find cousin photos.

    WFTY: Progress. The morning is mostly gone and my grading is not done. UGHHHH.

    I’ve read and kept caught up this weekend, but I’ve also spent some time doing things off of my phone and social media.

    I don’t go back to work until Wednesday and I’m quite happy about that. Tomorrow is Family Day here in Alberta and Tuesday I am taking a lieu day for a dental appointment and to get my hair coloured.

    SUNDAY:
    - sing for one mass today 🟢
    - Pack up for ski trip🟢

    Yesterday’s goals were a little too easy, but we were traveling and I wasn’t sure what the day would be like. I was terrible at tracking last week, so I’m looking forward to starting the shamrock challenge! I even brought my food scale on vacation with me! 🤣

    - track everything
    - Stay green
    - get exercise
    - Have fun with the family!

    Good luck to everyone starting the challenge! 🍀

    Goals for Sunday-
    Back in the saddle (happy to report). Dang it’s hard to stay under calories going out to dinner. Had I not burned 1100 calories and fasted prior there is no way I would have met my goal.

    -sufferfest
    -get daughter at noon
    -aim for about 1000 cal deficit (with exercise)
    -get tax papers together and make appointment
    -get daughter to dermatology appointment
    Make a nice dinner
    Pack lunches for Tuesday
    Laundry
