      @ZizzyBumble i am so jealous of your amazing views! I wish we had something that beautiful and serene where I live. Unfortunately it’s all just flat land and buildings...& cows. Lots of cows lol.

      Just for today Friday, October 16th, 2020 I will:

      •Walk✅ I had a really great 3 mile walk this morning. I really enjoyed it.
      •Eat 3 meals❌ Ugh! I did good for breakfast, but opted for a protein shake at lunch and now am just snacking for dinner since neither the hubs nor Inare really hungry enough to cook a full meal. The toddler was happy with scrambled eggs and fruit tonight. Sigh. I have to get better at eating actual meals and not just snacking.
      •Finger printing- FINALLY!!✅

      For Friday, be who I want to be. If I want to be healthy, take actions in alignment.

      1900 calories: 3298
      Work out 80 minutes, find the time:80 on the nose. Made the time to work out
      Make good choices: Made good choices and kept in line until I got home from my event and sat on the couch. Not good from there
      Support my bride:She always supports me in all phases of my life. She doesn’t come down when I get off track. Easy to support her
      Going to an event this evening. Avoid car food and eating on the couch when I get home: No car food but that dank couch

      For Saturday, keep going. It’s hard to write down my failure to keep my commitments but not hard enough to keep me on track these days. Keep trying new things.

      1900 calories:
      Work out for 90 minutes:
      Make good choices:
      Support my bride:
      Eat dinner at the table, walk afterwards and don’t eat on the couch while watching TV:

      Saturday 17 October

      Log - will do my best guess for tonight’s takeaway
      Stay in the green - I very much doubt it will be possible even with exercise
      5 fruit and veg
      Water
      Fitbit exercise goals
      Happy Scale weight trend ↔️ 0.1 kg gained in last 7 days 👿 I know I indulged yesterday but I don’t think the scales are telling the truth. Given today’s eating plan, I don’t expect to see an improvement tomorrow either.

      Hi, A house overlooking the sea was my retirement dream and I’m so pleased we managed to achieve it. We used to look out onto houses and more houses. We now have sheep surrounding the house. They stand on the hill level with my bathroom window, and stare in whilst I’m cleaning my teeth!

      @momofthree9845 I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your husband. Welcome to the group! This is the most supportive, caring groups I've ever known...I can tell you fit right in! :flowerforyou:

      My caboose feels like it's out of gas today. It's nearly noon, and I'm still sipping coffee trying to get my butt in the shower! Lately, I've gotten my morning and evenings turned around and I'm staying up late at night and then I'm tired all day. I need to work on that...amongst a half million other things. Haha!

      I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

      @ZizzyBumble - I so enjoy the pictures you share of your views.

      @PackerFanInGB - I am naturally a night owl. I have more energy when I am able to stay up late and sleep in. Work is not conducive to this and I struggle through. You are retired now, maybe your body is just doing what is most natural for it.

      I have to go out to the store to get a few things for the house and I really don’t want to. It’s cold and snowy out.

      @PackerFanInGB I am on the Isle of Skye (off the west coast of Scotland). I look out onto part of a chain of islands collectively known as the Outer Hebrides, then it’s the North Atlantic until you reach Canada.

      @snowflake1968 I’m glad you like the photos, yesterday’s sunset was a particularly nice one with the hills bathed in orange light. It was grey and damp this evening!

        JFT 10/15

        - Work for two hours :)
        - Eat mindfully at both lunch and dinner :)
        - Work out and go to Yoga :)
        - Go for an outside walk for at least 30 minutes :)
        - Move hourly >:)

        JFT 10/18

        - Work for 1 hour
        - Don't eat sugar
        - Yoga and gym
        - Make a healthy dinner
        - Log all food

        Writing in here is very motivating. I missed it for a few days and missed it. The weekend always throws my routine off so I'm making a weekend schedule instead of trying to adhere to Monday - Friday.

        Working from home is tough so I'm trying to do more hours.
