    JFT:

    Stay on sleep schedule
    Always have flavored water available
    Foods: Salad/dressing, ham/mustard, steak/mushrooms/brocolli
    No soda, No cheese
    No scary movies or documentaries
    Walk to grocery store

    I had to chuckle when I saw the post about no scary movies or documentaries. .. I am the same way. Hate halloween, and scarry movies! Also loved the post about the flavored water. I am trying to drink more flavored water ... I seem to get my water in better if it has a little flavor to it!

    Yea, I've noticed I don't stress out as much if I stay away from scary movies. I'll never watch a horror film. For some reason they just really scare me as I'm watching them, and the effect can last for days. Some people say "hey it's just a movie!" but my brain doesn't know the difference! I really don't need any more anxiety right now with what is going on in the world. And yes, regular water is just so boring that the only way I can have enough of it is to have some kind of flavor to it! :smiley:

    Good day on Saturday

    For Saturday, have faith in the long run. Progress happens slowly but will happen.

    1900 calories: 1844, Friday should have been +50 to 1886. Missed on item
    Work out for 80 minutes: 85 minutes including a 2.64 mile walk
    Make good choices and revisit my goals mid day: Had two splurges, a Dairy Queen cone and a Chick Fil A sandwich but planned for both. Still under for the day
    Support my bride: Easy to do. She has always supported me
    Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged: Done and done. Great way to spend time with my bride

    For Sunday, finish the week strong. Do the things I’m supposed to do.

    JFT - Sunday Oct 4
    Weight 195.4
    1L of water
    Log all food
    No chips
    15 minutes of activity
    Gratitude Journal

    I missed posting goals yesterday somehow.
    I thought I had.

    @cschmitz110515 - I let weather dictate my mood as well. I think that’s fairly common.
    We have had a couple of rainy cold summers, hopefully next year is better.

    @silverpl2525 - I’m with you! No scary movies for me either. Funnily enough though I love true crime shows.

    @littleblackskirt - I’m so sorry about your parents, that is so difficult. Hugs to you.

    I did some cleaning yesterday and have to do some more today. I’m not feeling 100% though so may just be lazy.

  • littleblackskirtlittleblackskirt Member Posts: 522 Member Member Posts: 522 Member
    Thanks ladies for the kind thoughts. I didn't get round to posting goals today, but I logged everything. I'm 200 calories in the red right now, I walked in the morning, not decided yet whether to go out again tonight.
    I didn't scoff the rest of the things I bought yesterday, just one small piece of cake.

    Good things from the weekend - I didn't buy chocolate, which I would have in the past, I've finally realised I don't need it. Also, I will eat the cake and crisps I bought, but slowly and logged, not mindlessly. I don't think crisps will ever lose their moreish-ness though!

    I’ve been trying to cut back on alcohol but did have a whisky this evening. I’ve been good all week so I’m ok with my indulgence. I’d like the scales to agree with me; tomorrow’s weigh in will be after a week of concerted effort!

      Not had the healthiest weekend in the world, we had a friend to stay for the first time since covid and, perhaps because it was such a very special occasion, ate and drank rather a lot! We had a lovely time though, was so good to spend some proper quality time with a friend face to face.

      Now feeling rather tired, think the rich food /alcohol potentially lowered the quality of my sleep somewhat. Also, the darkness..... It's rained all weekend here and is not at all light when we wake up now, which I think has a big impact on my energy levels.

      As such, have failed to go for a run on getting up this morning as planned, but am lying in bed drinking a coffee instead.... Will have to go for a run after work instead. This means I will have to finish work promptly, as it's getting dark earlier again as well! I can see problems getting exercise in ahead..... Will have to think about how to keep getting it in despite the darkness.

      Anyway, today's goals:

      - Track all food and drink
      - Be in the green
      - Stay positive
      - Read emails at intervals only

      - Go for run
      - Keep catching up on emails
      - Talk to boyfriend in French
      - Make lunches
      - Do monthly resolutions
      - Lights off by 11
