      Yesterday was ok, I had a fairly good day at work, a project that has been a nightmare for 7 months actually seems like it might be nearly finished. Was very excited about this and thought about having a drink to celebrate but then decided not to. Am happy with that decision!

      Otherwise the evening wasn't great, despite the day going well I was pretty exhausted as it had been intense, and we then had a bit of a drama because it turned out the freezer door had been slightly open and looooooads of ice had formed to the extent that drawers wouldn't open/close. So we had to sort that out and make a plan as to how to eat all the food up as soon as possible so we can defrost the thing (which is well overdue, don't think we've done it in like a year). It's going to be interesting, and very meaty, food for the next week and a bit!

      I'm a little tired today as annoyingly I woke up at 3am and it took quite some time to get to sleep. Hoping my coffee will kick in soon.

      Happy Friday everyone! :smile:

      Yesterday's goals:
      - Track all food and drink :)
      - Be in the green :|Just over
      - 5 fruit & veg :/ Just 4

      @bookmeister86 I’ve done that with our upright freezer a few times. Very frustrating.
      @SERmom3 Looking good on the chip challenge!!!

      Drive-thru flu jab was very efficient. We were done and dusted before our given appt time. Slightly sore arm but otherwise feeling fine.

      I am better than this

      For Thursday, learn from my shortfalls.

      1900 calories: 1911
      Work out for 80 minutes: Never got going and didn’t walk or work out
      Make the right choices: Was right on for calories but didn’t make good choices on food and didn’t exercise
      Support my bride: I can do better. She doesn’t ask for much but wants me around for the long haul.
      Eat dinner at the table and walk afterwards, both unplugged. Don’t snack on the couch: Nope, nope and nope.

      Thankfully it's Friday and it is a long weekend here. Tomorrow we are having our Thanksgiving dinner with our girls and their families. Covid is at an all time high here in our region, so some new restrictions are in place but we are still allowed to gather with our cohorts, which our girls have been all along.

      I went and bought the turkey last night, will have to run out tonight to get the rest.

      I need to run, another busy work day.

      •I will prioritize eating 3 healthy meals instead of just snacking.✅
      •Go for a walk with the girls ✅
      •Client❌Client canceled last minute. I hate when that happens.

      I’ve said this every day this week, but man am I exhausted today. I managed to get a little more sleep when my parents arrived to help with the girls. So thankful for family! I am happy today is Friday, we have a busy weekend ahead of us with a really big decision to make about the future of the practice, but my husband will be home and I love getting to spend time with him.

      Just for today, Friday October 9th, I will

        Just for today, Friday October 9th, I will

        •Rest✅
        •Go for a walk❌
        •Eat 3 meals instead of snacking ✅

        I did really great on eating 3 meals today, I’m proud of myself for that. I also rested a lot, which was much needed. However, I chose not to go for a walk. I’m exhausted and I feel like my body just needs some rest, so I chose to listen to that and honor it. Tomorrow is another day. We have a lot going on this weekend, but I will try and get a walk in at some point.

        It will be guess work for logging tonight’s meal and staying in the green. I’ve ordered take away from the local restaurant (I want to support a local business that relies heavily on the tourist trade (people travel long distances to eat here). I couldn’t normally afford their prices but it’s a special takeaway menu for locals. I’m eating a light breakfast and lunch so hoping things balance out 😊

        Hope you all have a good weekend 🐝
