    Good day.

    For Thursday. Will rarely feel like getting it done, do it anyway

    1900 calories - 1856
    Work out 70 minutes - 78 minutes including a 2.14 mile walk.
    Support my bride - was patient and didn’t nit pick
    Focus on health and flexibility for retirement
    Walk after dinner - made the attempt but the rain kept us in.

    For Friday: I don’t get what I deserve, I get what I accept.

    Wow! I was 65 posts behind! My heart goes out for everyone who's been struggling. This is such a hard time right now. My main problem is that I'm not working at all. I'm waiting on a call from my liaison at my job but it depends on what the school district says. There's another district close by that's paying $200 a day for subs. The problem is that it's a really bad section of town. Very poor with a lot of gang violence. Plus they only have positions for middle and elementary schools which I don't do. So there's really nothing for me to do but wait. I'm going stir crazy at home. I haven't worked since the middle of February due to the surgery. It's almost 7 months now.

    I'm also still dealing with the headaches and now stomach aches have been added in. I think I do needed to go to the doctor. I just hate going for myself. It's always Matt that I go for which I don't mind. But I have a feeling I'm going to have to go to a neurologist and there aren't many in my area that take my insurance.

    Okay, only some goals!

    Today I will:

    - post 😁
    - go food shopping(NO CHOCOLATE)
    - dishwasher
    - edit 3 chapters
    - peddle for 30 minutes
    - cook dinner!

    Gratitude Journal

    @mytime6630 - I so feel for you, we have been so much more fortunate here in Canada than you have been in the States. I think you would be safe having the porch visits but if it makes your husband feel unsafe in his own home I don't think I could do it either. Maybe this will give your daughter some of her confidence back that she can do it without visiting everyday. The compliment from her boss probably helped her a lot as well. Can you do videochats with her on the nights she doesn't visit? I don't know how so many families have dealt with a loved one in a hospital or long term care facility. It sure is a difficult time for everyone.

    @bex953172- Did you manage to go for the test?

    @littleblackskirt - I don't know how it works on the laptop either. I think you would be fine as it saves on the website itself, but I'm not 100% sure. I did notice last night that a few people were having issues so maybe its just something they are working on again.

    @HEGoddard0928 - Health and money issues can be all consuming to deal with. We are struggling right now financially and the car keeps having one issue after another. I just withdrew my RRSP yesterday to put towards one repair bill, that isn't quite enough and then today there is another issue with the car. I know at this point, we just need a new vehicle but I don't know how to do that with the terrible credit we have.

    Well I've done enough bellyaching this morning, I have to get to work.

    Have a great day everyone

    @Snowflake1968

    No luck on the test, I've tried to book one on government website but it says "no test sites available" ... there's two that are 13 miles away?

    So I dont know if that means there's no appointments left or no tests? Theres certainly no home test kits. I only have 5 days to get tested too, so I got til Monday.

    Very annoying I just want the kids back in school if its not covid. Which I suspect it isn't.

    JFT Friday 11th September

    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green yes
    Back exercises no, not unless I do them in bed tonight
    Foot exercises yes
    Walk just 18 minutes round housing scheme. This is my 20 minute route, must be getting faster lol
    Collect medication no, was too wet and wild out
    Housework yes

    Reporting back tonight as won't have time tomorrow, I leave home at 7am for the day. Had a good day, but very tired tonight. Have been reminding myself why I'm doing this...health health health!!! I don't want Covid complications, cancer, diabetes, all the things which have an increased risk when overweight. I had a letter from the hospital confirming that I have a problem with my hands/fingers. I've been reading about it on the internet and weirdly it seems that it means I now have a higher chance of getting cancer, no idea why! So I'm even more keen to get in shape and have the best chance of good health!

    Enjoy your weekend everyone!

    Sorry I’ve been awol the last couple of days. School reopened to all the children this week and it’s been hard work trying to settle them back and work through the current distancing arrangements. Feels like I spend all day lining children up to clean their hands!

    Anyway am a bit behind but I have been running and training and trying to stay healthy amidst all the madness.

    Will get back on track with goals next week.

    Have a lovely weekend all x

    So sorry some of you are coping with family illnesses exacerbated by Covid. So many not able to visit ill relatives. My heart goes out to you.

    Great things are done by
    a series of small things brought together

      [*] structuring my day
      [*] morning and evening meditation
      [*] Using the internet to ‘talk’ to family
      [*] crochet, jigsaws, journaling, gardening, reading, writing .......
      [*] HIIT videos off YouTube,
      [*] yoga/Taichi
      [*] Walks with DH
      [*] Cleaning! Cleaning! Cleaning! 😂

      Mixed day

      For Friday: I don’t get what I deserve, I get what I accept.

      1900 calories - 1653. Good choices
      Work out 70 minutes - 73 minutes including 2.2 walk.
      Support my bride - got grouchy and start nit picking little things. Have to be better
      Focus on health and flexibility for retirement
      Walk after dinner - was late but still forced a .5 around the blanch.

      For Saturday: recognize that success is not a straight line. Accept my shortfalls, course correct and start again.

      1900 calories

      JFT, Sat
      1. log all food
      2. concentrate on water
      3. work on that quilt .. I am so close to finish
      4. laundry
      5. clean house



      I cannot thank you guys enough for listening to me ... and your encouraging and helpful words regarding my daughter and hubby. You truly are the best!

      Yesterday we explained again to our daughter being outside.. and she understands. So Thursday I had the entire lawn sprayed for bugs ... did help a little last nite.
      But I also sprayed Cutter lawn spray ... and bought about 4 Citronella candles. I bought a small outdoor rug to also lay on the pavers... and brought out the fan.
      It was a pleasant evening, and even though the bugs were still bad, not nearly as bad. We bought just sat outside ... I brought out my ipad and played some music videos, which I think she really enjoyed ... and hubby feels safe and is happy. I don't know what it will be like as it gets colder... but we'll handle that as it comes.

      Main thing is for us all to stay safe!

      @Bex -- for as young as you are, you truly know how to put into words how to help so many. Thank you so much! And .. I pray your little ones don't have covid. You are right .. these tests are a joke!! Here they test a lot ... our daughter has to get tested every week because she works in a nursing home. But she doesn't get the results for 3 days ... so what good is that! They even say you can be negative one day and positive the next day. I hope they come out with a rapid saliva test .. I think that is the only way any of us can be sure.
      But I bet anything your daughters just have a summertime cold. You and Ash have been so careful.

      @teigansdad - I am the same way with junk food. If I have it in the house, it is so hard for me to control .. especially things like ice cream and cookies. Chips I have no problem with (well, ususally!). But Hubby does. So trying to just not bring that into the house.

      I am really late getting in today. I slept in a bit and then had a lazy morning with hubby.
      I have gotten off my butt and cleaned, waiting for the girls and Grands to get here. Hoping the rain stops as it’s supposed to soon. If we have to we’ll have to do that party inside but I really prefer not too.
      The only people outside our family is my son in law’s parents and I know they’ve been careful but it’s still a worry.

      I have read but don’t have time to comment right now.
