    1L of Water
    Log all Food

    I'm going to start small and go from there. Right now I need to concentrate on these two things and I know that will help. My eating is out of control and the scale shows it. It only takes a week of bad eating and not enough water to make a huge difference for me.

    @Snowflake1968 hownold are your grandkids?
    My Grandson is 9, him and I share a birthday. His name is Jonah. My Granddaughter is 4, going on 14. She will be 5 in January and her name is Michaela.
    My elder girl is called Michaela, named for her father, Michael. The younger girl is called Elise, named for her Nana, my wonderful MiL. Both names were regarded as very unusual in the 1960s, but seem to be popular these days. Grands are James, Elizabeth, and Ernie (Ernest). All family names
    Not going to post goals for today but sharing photos from my virtual 5K this morning. Not at Lambeau Field in 2020 but passed a sunflower field instead. My walking buddy was a happy dog. #PACKERS5KOURRUNYOURTURF
    WTG! Great photos. He's a happy boy.

    @WellingTX I love your self-knowledge. Realising that we will have off days, and learning to rise above them is a major part of progression. Keeping your WHY in focus is crucial to changing habits.

    @PackerFanInGB Tracie, keep it up. It's very effective. I used to do the sticky note thing. I may have to introduce it. I like the idea of signing your post. Especially useful for new members to get to know us.

    Live long and proper! (Spock)


    I love you Terri. You've been an awesome part of this family ever since you joined. Love the way you log, comment, and inspire all of us. You really brought something special to our group. Guess what that is?... YOU🤗😍😃❤❤❤❤❤❤❤🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 Just love ya girl

    Hey guys! It's been a little while. I've been battling a killer cold. I'm off from school today for a Jewish holiday and IT'S MY BIRTHDAY so I'm able to stay home and rest some more. Lol. I'm going to go to the doctor today to make sure it isn't bronchitis. I'm a bit worried it is because the mucus I've been coughing up is yellow. My mom always said that that's the sign of an infection. Lol. We'll see.

    Turns out I'm not pregnant. I took the test yesterday morning. :'( Matt's incredibly depressed about it. I really thought I was since my flow came almost a week late. It's really disappointing but I think Matt's having a harder time dealing with it then I am. So I'm going to call my doctor this morning and set up a consult which is the first step to seeing the fertility specialist. Matt's convinced that it's his fault I can't concieve. He had an injury down there when he was a young adult man did a lot of drugs and alcohol before he met me. I think we simply don't have enough sex. But to make him feel better we're going to get tested for sterility. Is that even a word? Lol.

    I have a whole bunch of other phone calls I have to make today too. I have to call Walgreens and demand a refund. I was trying to pay for a curbside pick up order (that never went though)but kept getting error messages whenever I tried to submit my order. Then about ten minutes after I gave up I got alerts from my bank that I had 5 charges from them. Le sigh. I hate fighting with companies about this *kitten*.

    Okay, enough complaining onto some goals!

    Today I will:
    - post 😁
    - take meds😁
    - feed my parent's animals(last time! YAY!)
    - put the damn clothes away!
    - DISHWASHER!!! (It's starting to get pretty gross)
    - call doctor re sick appt
    - call Walgreems re refund for failed online order
    - call NDOBGYN re fertility consult
    - call work re out of work tomorrow and Friday
    - go to doctor if appt available
    - pick up meds(if applicable)
    - lots of tea/water/vitamin C

    I think that's it for the moment. Lol

    Sorry I missed your birthday. I love you so very much. You're an awesome person. So glad we are connected. You fill my heart with gladness. Thank you for being here.🤗❤🌹

    I'm new!

    Hi everyone. I'm aiming to go from 245lbsish down to 111-120lbs. I'm also aiming to tone up. My pet peeve is treadmills and gyms right now so Im doing long walks, biking, dancing at home, and yoga at home.

    Today's goal is to belly dance at home then do a few Just Dance songs with my kid.

    I've been slowly gaining control of my food intake so it'll be a small portion for dinner tonight and a liter of water until bed.

    Good luck everyone.

    I understand this so much .. this is like me. When I concentrate and stay focused, not only do I feel better, but the scale will reflect .. slowly... but it does reflect my changes. Right now, like so many, I am totally out of control with food and just not caring. I think this covid has affected so many.

    You have great goals .. small goals that might be doable. Hang in there.. we are all in this together!

Dog and I all lit up with our LED & high viz/reflective gear on. Then we were surprised to walk part way with Kim & Bogie, both of us out early since she & I have to work on-site today. Nice start to the day, now the sun is shining & I already have 10k steps.

    I think peanut butter M&Ms need to be regulated by the FDA. Seriously!!! I think I’m a M&M junky.

    SO agree .. I LOVE M&Ms!! If I buy them, I can easily eat an entire bag in one evening!
