    Good morning everyone! I've been out of commission for a few days. I had a Covid test done on Friday...definitely not a nice experience. I was feeling really run down on Thursday and Matt wanted me to get one done because he works in retail with the public. I'm feeling much better now but we're still quarantining until the results come back. The problem is that the lab my doctor is using is backed up so it could take anywhere from 3-14 days for the results to come back...which means that Matt is out of work until then. :'( He's missed a lot of work recently between his own health issues and now mine. Le sigh.

    I'm an hour behind schedule for the day because I fell asleep on the couch after I got out of bed and made a cup of coffee. Lol. I have a bunch of stuff I want to do so I have to hurry up and get done with the first step so I can get everything else done on time!

    I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Today I will:

    - write bipolar article
    - shower
    - finish KCE course/SEO course
    - edit article and add SEO words
    - figure out dinner!
    - hang out with Matt after dinner(we need so time together)

    Weekends, I don't always take time to post but yesterday was big fail on eating. Meals were fine, healthy and proper portions. It was what I ate between meals. Ack! So posting some goals.

    JFT Sunday 7/26
    1) Church 7:45 :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks (2nd floor to basement) / 5 somethings
    2) Decide supper / net cals green / 14c water
    3) Wash dishes :) / help hubby with work laundry / prep bday cards for mail & BFF / absentee ballots / update cc on jewelry ins policy :) / download LCEF txns :) / balance bank accts / update financial s/s
    4) Enjoy hubby time (get him out of his funk I hope) / watch Holy Moley together
    5) Prep lunch/snacks/water bottle & overnight oats for work from office Mon.
    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / early alarm (x-train before work)

    Today there will be no dog walk. Temp was 80F at 7 a.m. and so humid my glasses steamed up when I went outside. I hate this weather. May have storms throughout the day. Now I hear thunder, and rain just started. I am grateful we have central AC and well-insulated house that keeps cool for long time.

    2020 Goals:
    1) Get weight below 160# (last time was 4/20/19)
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP
    3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability
    4) Take measurements & log on MFP monthly (I stopped as weight plateaued & went up) = 2.1.20 / 2.29.20 / 4.1.20 (forgot 3.31.20) / 5.1.20 (forgot 4.30.20) / 6.3.20 (forgot at ME again)
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking but include weights/circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race events ~ have planned 7 5Ks and 2 10Ks at minimum = Frenzy on the Fox 5K 49:36 ave. pace 15:29 / Seroogy's Valentine 5K 46:26.7 ave. pace 14:47 / Badger State Brewing 10K virtual race w/ dog on 4/2/20 1:44:16 ave. pace 16:33 / Prevention virtual 5K Fun & Fit Team on 5/2/20 I walked 3.48 mi w/ dog in 1:01:10 ave. pace 17:33 / RonaRunOff 5/16/20 virtual walk 5.08 miles with dog in 1:23:15 ave. pace 16:23 / 100 Miles Challenge fundraiser (per fitness tracker) & completed 5/18/20 / Bellin Run 10K virtual race w/ dog on 6/6/20 1:41:03 ave. pace 16:14 dog definitely slows my "race pace"
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states)
    9) Declutter home office, bedroom and basement = basement (boxes) Jan. / home office desk (some) & more basement boxes Feb. / basement boxes & home office (some more) Mar. / decluttered/cleaned in bedroom & more basement boxes Apr. / basement boxes May ~ very pleased w/ my progress / reorg in basement June & July
    Word for 2020: Persist

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 62, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI

    Very late checking in today, it’s 9pm here. Michaela woke me up at 750 this morning and started asking immediately when we were going to Auntie’s for the day. I was able to convince her to have some breakfast first and then we were on the road. I didn’t get back home until 730 this evening. It was a wonderful day.

    It’s too late now to post goals so will have to do it in the morning.

    Happy Monday! I took the weekend off from logging, but I still ate sensibly. I also kept up with my “no chip” streak. It’s really paying off. The scale was down another half pound, which is about a 6lb loss for the month! 🥳


    JFT MONDAY:
    - Log it all / Stay green
    - NO CHIPS
    - Budget
    - House chores (wash softball uniforms)
    - 2 softball games - Pack ice rags - it’s gonna be HOT! ☀️🔥
    - Continue scraping the house / buy can of paint
    - Figure out CCD schedule for S


    JULY CHALLENGE:
    In an attempt to refocus this month, I’ve decided to try and give up chips. This will be extremely difficult. I eat them almost daily. They are my weakness. I’m using a bikini as my emoji, since that will be a goal for next summer!

    *************NO CHIP CHALLENGE*************

    ORAMM 2020 in the books... sitting out on porch of VRB rental w cup of coffee just soaking it in...
    I’m super proud to report I met my goal.. 4 hour and 57 minutes... my goal was a 5 hr time. To be totally honest I wasn’t sure I could do that but figured I’d shoot for the stars. The awesome part is in doing this I also finished 10th! The competition here was crazy. Still not sure I had any business doing that well but I did say I was gonna race and not just ride it this year and man not to boast but still riding high...

    Alright time to get back to it. Drank a ton of beer last night. Ready to get back to healthy

    Monday goals
    Rest day
    If we can talk my buddy into riding we are gonna hit some local trails before headed home.. I think he’s still in trauma from yesterday so doubt we will... if not will do Easy trainer spin to recover when I get home
    Stay green
    No beer
    Fruit and vegetables for snacks

    @teigansdad - Congrats! You deserve to boast; you earned it! 🤗👏

    @teigansdad , I don't know what those capital letters stand for, but even I can tell a bit of boasting is in order :)

    Really well done, 10th is great!

    Today I will:

    - write bipolar article 😁Needs some heavy edits and then it's good to go!
    - shower 😁
    - finish KCE course/SEO course 😓It's taking longer than I thought
    - edit article and add SEO words 😓Had a bad headache again yesterday afternoon
    - figure out dinner! 😣We got take out.
    - hang out with Matt after dinner(we need so time together) 😐Maybe? Matt's new laptop got delivered yesterday so he spent the evening playing on that while I did a bit of work on mine. The good thing about us is that we don't always need to be entertaining each other. We can sit on the couch doing our own thing and be perfectly content.

    I've been dealing with daily headaches and I don't know why. It's been really strange. I don't know if maybe it's some strange caffeine thing or stress or what? I should probably see the doctor about it. Maybe eventually if it doesn't get better soon. I feel like I've been living off advil. I know it's not dehydration. I've been drinking SO MUCH water. Idk.

    Okay onto some goals.

    Today I will:
    - finish at least 1 course
    - edit guest blog post
    - look at writing bootcamps
    - find 25 more emails
    - read 4 articles on Jane's blog
    - read 5 freelance blog posts
    - bring trash can to the end of the driveway
    - rewatch SEO/lead gathering lessons

    Hubby has officially grounded me from the bike, at least until the concussion symptoms subside. I feel really rotten when I'm stuck inside, but right now physical activity has been rough and over stimulation makes me disoriented.

    I took the weekend off of logging and such and just rested and ate comfort food. Yeah, not the best plan, but that's life.

    JFT Monday
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Protein bar for breakfast :smiley:
    - Work stuff
    - Meeting
    - Try to walk after work, depends on how I feel
    - Log everything
    - Stay within maintenance
    - Try not to let this derail my efforts over the past few months

    Happy Monday y'all!

    @teigansdad - That is an accomplishment to be proud of! Congratulations your hard work paid off.

    @HEGoddard0928 - You mentioned you had been swabbed for Covid, headaches are one of the symptoms of that as well. We can't come to work if we have a headache. All of the work you've been doing on the computer could also be the culprit, have you had your eyes checked lately?

    JFT - Monday July 27
