    Drink 3 quarts of water every day. Done
    Work on hamstring stretches, dang they are painful. Seems to be the tight hamstrings are tied to the knee pain, well some of it.
    Get 30 min walk in. Done
    Get 30 min in on bike will do this evening.
    Stay within Calorie allotment Staying on track

    Over the weekend, boy got arm workout, we replaced all the windows in house, we had a number that were leaky both water and heat wise. So that meant all blinds, and curtains down. So washed the few valances we are keeping put back up. But we are keeping the wood blinds. And gee each one had 32 on them and I cleaned them with wood cleaner, all 128 wood slats both sides. Nice and clean now. But the underside of my upper arms oh boy were they complaining yesterday all day.

    To Do today:

    clean bathroom
    water plants
    wash dishes
    take out garbage

    get my starter seeds planted
    get 45 minutes minimum in on the elliptical
    look for practice routines I can do from Youtube


    got everything done by the seeds started. Its been cold and rainy all day, and I didn't feel like going out to my shed to dig the supplies out. Besides, I've got tomato seeds on order, so might as well wait until they get here and do everything at once!

    Thursday was very productive. Friday I got around 21000 steps in as we got notice at around 8:30pm that we were going on lockdown at midnight, and plan for the weekend had been to finish moving OH's stuff in to my place as we are moving in together.

    My goal today is to stop treating the lockdown like a holiday just because I'm home, it does not give me the excuse to eat everything in sight and stop weighing and logging.
    I'm finding it difficult as I'm cooking for the family and we're all eating the same so I can't easily separate my food from theirs, so today I shall find a way of doing that and log everything.

    Can you just add different accompanients or maybe batch cook something for yourself and freeze it so you can just heat it up and eat at the same time?

    My freezer is packed so I can't get anything else in it - it's actually not a bad thing as they are having to eat more fresh veg and we're all eating less processed foods. It's a mental barrier - I have to guess so I'm just not bothering, and because we're all like caged animals comfort eating/drinking has started.
    However, I acknowledge these are just excuses and now we know this is likely to go on for some time I'm uping my game to combat it. I'll log best estimates, ensure I get some exercise and hide the chocolate and vodka!

    put the new bulbs in the ground

    get a body weight routine in (cut back some to try to avoid serious DOMS like last week)

    I didn't get the bulbs in the ground yesterday, but its supposed to be pretty this weekend. And instead of a body weight routine, I did aerobics. But over all, not too bad a day

    TODAY'S GOALS

    -get a 30 minute elliptical session in
    - do an aerobics session at lunch time
    - stick to my deficit
    - try not to over-caffeinated today so I can actually sleep tonight.......

    I drank almost a whole gallon of tea and coffee yesterday, and paid for it when I tried to sleep last night. Between the caffeine overload and the leg muscles that were a little restless, I had a time and half falling asleep last night. I know it was close to 2 am, and my alarm went off at 5:15 :frowning: A short power nap might be in my future today.

    That's one benefit to working at home; if I find I need a power nap, I can just lay down on the bed behind me and take it without feeling guilty then just take the extra time to the end of the day. There isn't that need to wear a front in front of co-workers!

    Just rejoined MFP on Sunday after getting on the scales to discover I was back over 300 lbs. DarnIt!! So, I'm back ... and, hopefully, will stick with it so I can get to a healthier weight. Luckily at my physical in January, everything checked out in good order; absolutely no issues except for being obese. So, back again!!
    My larder is stocked with about 3 weeks of supplies (chosen by my granddaughter, bless her heart) due to the pandemic. I did go out very briefly to get fresh veggies and fruit. Now it's a matter of using what I have - making sure to log everything - and replacing with my choices as needed.
    I'm 72 and obese so I've been self-isolating for the past couple of weeks or so. I've also started back on the beginner's walk from Leslie Sansone but can barely get thru 5 minutes before I'm winded and my legs feel like jelly ... so baby steps there as well. Right now I'm shooting for at least 2 5 min sessions a day; then Sunday I'll increase to 8-10 min, maybe try for 3 a day.
    Hope Y'all have a great day! :)

    so far so good on the caffeine part; we'll see when I hit the hay in a bit. I had wanted to get in an upper body resistance workout this evening, but by the time I got back home from a grocery run and pharmacy run on the other end of the county, then came home and got dishes done, egg rolls wrapped, and a few other odds and ends, I don't have the time. So that will be on tomorrow's goal list!

    To Do List for April 1, 2020
    Must Do List --
    Log everything in MFP
    Drink at least 6 water
    Do at least 2 sets of 5 minute walk

    Need To Do --
    Put away clothes
    Start to declutter closet
    Run errands: deposit cks, pay Home Depot, get fresh fruit & veg
    Call Sis & Bro about funeral home bill

    Like To Do --
    Work in yard doing cleanup for a bit
    Box up DGD's stuff in Living Room

    Well, I looked at my lists above and realize it's all doable ... if I'd just get busy. Soooooo, why is it what I really want to do is go take a nap? LOL Have been getting a lot of headaches this past month and, usually, I only get 3-4 a year and they are usually allergy related. I don't sleep well to begin with and these headaches have interfered with that. So I had my DGD (darling granddaughter) buy me some Tylenol PM hoping it would help with the headache and help me sleep. No headache this morning, Thank You Jesus!! but, still didn't sleep well. Basically slept in 2 hour chunks. Hopefully, tonight will be better.
    Ok, heading in to put away my laundered clothes. Hope Y'all have a great day! :)
