    @Snowflake1968 So sorry to hear about your cousin’s son. (((Hugs))) to all the family as they process this tragedy.
    @AHB114 That is so easy to do! 😂 all it takes is a minor distraction and ppffffttt it’s gone!
    @annettehangartner Here’s hoping that the wedding goes off stress free, and hubby’s surgery goes well.
    @merope2 (and others) MFP was woeful yesterday. I think that you can safely forgive yourself for not being able to log food etc. I just keep reminding myself that it’s fret. 😂

    JFT Wednesday
    - Weigh, DAMN up 2.4 lbs
    - Breakfast <300 cal :smiley:
    - Lunch <500 cal :smiley:
    - Afternoon meeting :smiley:
    - Evening bike ride, accept the challenge and try the climb at the end :smiley:
    - Dinner out :neutral: Decided to just go home
    - Log everything :smiley:
    - Stay Green :smiley:
    - Positive self talk :(
    - No sweets!! :smiley:

    Have an exceptional day all!

    Yesterday was a mixed bag. Really I hit most goals except the positive self talk. I gave up on the climb before I started it. Luckily a friend of mine was out there riding and he took Tim up the hill so at least he got a little bit of a workout. His riding with me is more of a social thing, and recovery. I made it about 1/4 way up the hill then I just turned around and waited at the bottom for Tim and Joe to come back.

    I guess next time I just try to make it a little further than the time before.

    Weighed in today and most of that up tick from yesterday is gone, instead of being 2.4 pounds up I'm 0.3 pounds up. That makes way more sense given my eating/exercise this week.

    JFT Thursday
    - Protein bar for breakfast
    - Chinese for lunch, Chicken & broccoli, skip the rice...
    - Work on Quality Manual
    - Do some kind of exercise after work, either walk hills or repeat yesterday's ride
    - Log everything
    - Stay Green
    - No cookies/candy
    - Pick up new script from WM to help me sleep and hope it helps
    - Bed by 11:30

    I'm not sure what today has in store for you, but you can handle it. Much love to y'all!

    After the ride I was in a funk. Mostly because although I was fast it was humbling to have worked so hard and still see my faster buddy just walk away from me on the trail. I self medicated big time.. first two beers... then Sara had brought home Oreos and brownies.. all said and done I think I ended up over 2000 calories in the red. I’m just darn ashamed of that...
    Oh well hitting reset today

    Reset and move on is so much harder than it sounds, but you've got this. I had to ask an old riding buddy to take my husband up to the top of Corbit Hill yesterday because I couldn't do it. I was in a funk, but I went the opposite way and didn't eat. Only had about 1000 cal in and beat myself up all night. Still a little pissed at myself for not really trying yesterday. It isn't the same as you, but we both have expectations to be at a certain level in respect to others, and we just ain't there. Have faith, put the miles in and you will get there. Enjoy the ride and kudos on the KOM. I used to have the QOM on the hill I couldn't climb yesterday (humiliating)...

    JFT wednesday
    1. Wash face/brush teeth am ✔
    2. Smoothie for breakfast ✔
    3. Eat when hungry/stop when full 👎 stress ate before bed...
    4. Water every time I'm at the sink, keep track 👎 not a total fail but could have been better
    5. Log food ✔
    6. Salad for lunch 👎 this was not supposed to be a goal anyway as i had planned on burrito bowl leftovers and i even weighed my protein portion to 4oz! I figured i have a scale I should be using it!
    7. Log JGMTD ✔
    8. Set positive intentions for the day, talk back at negative and mean thoughts ✔/👎 good for the first half of the day then kind if fell apart. I take things way too personally. I'm distant and then blame DH for not connecting when its really me that is pushing him away by not engaging when given the opportunity. I think ive been blaming him for a lot when my attitude is part of the problem. Quarantine life is hard when youre a person who thrives on alone time. I'm going for a drive to pick up groceries today...alone. Baby will hopefully nap so he can stay home with DH who is workong from home.
    9. No icecream!!! ✔ but then i ate smores instead...so 👎

    Gratitude Journal

    Thank you everyone for the condolences on my cousin's son - I can't imagine the pain that suicide inflicts on a family. There must be more that can be done.

    @aubyshortcake - I'm mulling it over in my mind what to do. The location, benefits and such are really good here. If anything happened to my vehicle I could walk to work. The benefits are better than any I've ever had and there is a pension matching program. I have more sick time than I hope I would ever need. My only problem here is my boss. My thought is to wait it out and get through. I have a feeling she will be retiring in the next couple of years, so I just need to stick it out. Right now, there aren't a lot of opportunities and after my searches in 2017 and 2019 I don't know if I want to go through it again so soon.

    @fairy_daisy - I don't think I would care to have a COVID test weekly. Hopefully it doesn't come down to that here.

    @littleblackskirt - It is very wearing to track and restrict all the time. I think that is what my problem is right now, I just don't have the ooomph I need to get it done. I am back up into the Obese I think, so would like to get back to overweight.

    @sermom3 - Can you use an hydrocortisone cream on your hands that help with the itch?

    @AgnesFerniot - What do you mean by "A.I. kicking in"?

    @teigansdad - Sorry you had a rough day yesterday. As my husband pointed out to me the other day, even if it didn't track you still moved and burned the calories. The snacking is killing me too. Last night I did better than I have in a long time. I chose popsicles last night, they freeze my mouth making me not want to eat more and are only 45 calories as I only have the single ones. I did have two last night, but it's better than the 400-500 amount of calories I have been eating.

    @TerriRichardson112 - I have been thinking about pilates and strength training too. I have heard people have more success when they start the weight training.

    @pridesabtch - You'll get to the top of the hill, you have such determination.

    @AJB1014 - Deep breaths, this has been hard on so many people. I was reading a post that my Goddaughter posted last night about her 4 year old.
    "Raven reason number 1875 for crying, "it's raining outside but I wanted to have a bath"
    I told her I loved the logic.
    She responded with
    reason 1874 "my school shoe's are too small, that means I'm growing, but i want to wear them"
    I told her that it sounded like Raven was having a day.
    Her Mom commented and said sounds like Mom is too.
    I said I think all Mom's with young ones have been "having a day" since March.
    Hang in there, I hope you get some alone time soon.

      Thu 18: 149.2🤔
      Fri 19: 149.4 🤓 I was wondering if this uptick is connected to the fact that I have started interval walking/jogging to get my steps in. I did a little research, and sure enough, there it was, in black and white. When you start jogging, the muscles hold on to fluid for muscle repair. Can be several lbs, and it sorts itself out when the body acclimatises, so I'm sticking with it until it settles down.
      😂 Just when you think you have it all sorted, one little change throws it up in the air again. I'm guessing that this is temporary.

      Second day of new exercise schedule. This morning I did 15 minute warm up walk, 20 minute HIIT with dumbbells, and 35 minutes Standing Pilates w/out. I will still be trying to keep under 150, but think it might be a bit of a stretch, with the extra workout time.

      @Snowflake1968 - Thanks for the suggestion. I do use hydrocortisone cream, but it barely takes the edge off. I have a prescription cream, but use it very rarely because it can thin your skin.

      Life got in the way yesterday. I ended up working late and there were some family commitments I forgot about. I finally got home around 10pm. Which boiled down to no exercise and excess calories from eating out and having a few drinks. Not the end of the world, I still came in under maintenance.

      Today, I gotta get some exercise in and I gotta go to TJ Maxx. Priorities...

      My daughter got up early to do a 15 mile run today, she is my hero.

      Day was going well until the evening. Water softener is on the Fritz and we had a communication break down over how were going to handle this. Fortunately it has a bypass so thats the temporary solution. Im still tired. But DH is away at a job today so im going to decompress and problem solve after I relax a bit during babys nap.

      @Snowflake1968 thank you! My cousin posted about how were all in the same storm, but we all have a different boat! My heart truly goes out to those toddler moms.

      Im on the web browser just to get community to work!!!
