    @bookmeister86 I love a picnic or buffet and will happily graze. If it’s a bring your own food, I will take plenty of bite sized veg and hummus/dip, strawberries, grapes etc. and try to have more of these than the more calorie laden crisps, pastries etc. Unfortunately, wine goes very well with a picnic!

    Recap 6/7 M
    1) To beat the heat, x-trained in basement before work :) amazing how quickly I lose strength when I skip two weeks
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks :smiley: 14/14 boom! 7.2K
    3) Supper? / net cals zero / 14c water :neutral: -142 b/c cheese & sausage snack pre-supper :p 14c water :mrgreen:
    4) Write up remote access security / office summarization / Facebook Live 12:00 / catch up w/ emails = 3/4
    5) On way home pick up kitty food at vet's / prep overnight oats & water bottle / meal plan & grocery list / declutter 15 min. / one other chore? yes = 5/5
    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work) :mrgreen: 5/5

    JFT 6/8 T ~ heat & humidity continues :sweat_smile:
    1) Walked dog 3.34 mi before work B) happy dog & drippy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net cals zero / 14c water
    4) Call Don 10:00 / last 2 regs F&D / finalize compliance rate sheet & report draft / update IA request doc / submit for review / emails?
    5) Grocery shop / prep overnight oats, carrots & celery, water bottle / wash dishes / declutter 15 min. / one other chore?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / 5:40 alarm (walk dog before work)

    2021 Goals:
    1) Weight 150#
    2) Plan meals most days & prelog meals/snacks whenever possible on MFP
    3) Post weekly weigh-in on JFT for accountability. Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I peek occasionally other days. My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale.
    4) Take measurements & log on MFP every month end ~ remember this year! ~ 1.31.21 ~ 2.28.21 ~ 4.3.21 ~ 4.30.21 not pretty ~ skipped 5.31.21
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking but include weights/circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race or challenge events even if virtual ~ started MapMyWalk You Vs. Year 1021K on Jan. 1 / virtual 50 Mile Frenzy 11.27.20 - 1.15.21 (replaced Frenzy on the Fox for Jan. 2021) 50.37 miles 12.17.20 and completed 97.44 miles total / Tour de Northeast WI virtual challenge: cover distance from Oshkosh to Gills Rock (139 miles) 1.1.21 - 3.31.21 ~ completed distance on 3.21.21 / 30/45 Build to Bellin virtual challenge 30 min. activity for total of 1,350 min. in 45 days 3.1.21 - 4.15.21 = 146 out of 339 in 34:00:42 / Hope 2021 Face Mask virtual 5K (benefits No Kid Hungry) anytime 5.11.21 in 58:04 / 100 Miles in May virtual challenge ~ 134.68 miles would've been more if I hadn't sluffed off on dog walks one week / Bellin (virtual) 10K
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last year that should be repeated
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ had this goal in 2020 and how ironic
    9) Declutter bedroom, home office and basement ~ made good progress in 2020 & want to keep it up
    Word for 2021: Gratitude ~ be mindful of & appreciate my many blessings

    Still battling the heat and humidity as we wait for the part for the AC to come in. At least there’s some rain in today’s forecast, and temperatures should drop considerably over the next few days.

    Stepped on the scale this morning and was pleased to be down a pound from last week. I still have a long way to go to take off the 30+ pounds I put back on over the last 15 months, and I’m not sure I’m ready to go back to daily weigh-ins. But logging – and staying below my calorie limit – is getting easier.

    Summer presents its own challenges, including a lot more social events centered on high-calorie food, cocktails, and “rosé all day.” This summer, with Covid rates down and the lifting of most restrictions in the US, people seem primed for a celebratory summer. My family is still feeling cautious, so I think our gatherings will be smaller but all the more extravagant when it comes to food and drink. Striving for balance and a weekly deficit will be tough. I need to start working on a plan if I don’t want to weigh more in September than I do now.

    I can imagine house hunting is very stressful and can get you feeling that way.
    I hate having to look for rentals.
    It's annoying when you find the perfect place then it's like "no pets"
    Then it makes me just makes me want to own my own house then I remember I can't afford it 😂 but hang in there, I'm sure you'll find something that you'll love :)

    @teigansdad glad to see you back!

    Had a busy day today. Did a bit of shopping and bought some paint.
    Ash was meant to have a hairdresser round at 8pm but he brought it forward to 5:30.
    I don't mind at all but it meant the cleaning had to be done quick time.

    I wish there was an exercise entry for "extreme mopping". Actually came out in a sweat. But we did it with 5 mins to spare.
    Now me and the kids are chilling upstairs, they're about to have a bath because their feet are black from mud from playing in the garden.
    It's been a bit of a crazy school holiday.
    I love it when we're doing things with the kids. but then when me and Ash want to do something like paint, they start acting up and it gets stressful. It's a bit unfair when we do as much as we can for them but they won't give us the time to do what we need to do.
    I guess that's kids being kids though!

    💦 Jun Challenge 💦

    Jun: LNS: 1 ~|~ ME: 7

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts to remember.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • The scale is only one gauge of progress. Others include Measurements, clothes fit, improvement in general well-being/fitness.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    Weigh in this morning and weight has not moved in a week, in fact it has gone up. Baaaaaah. It's frustrating as have been in green every day other than Sunday (picnic). Cannot, surely, have eaten so much on Sunday as to counterbalance six days of good eating. Would have had to eat 3,000 calories surplus for that to be the case!

    Patience, patience....will keep going and keep the faith that it will come off if I stick at it, even if body is resisting giving up those pounds initially.

    @Snowflake1968 - is it a 7 or 14 day average that you keep track of?

    Yesterday's goals:
    Log everything I eat :)
    Be in the green :)
    Do exercise DVD :)
    Get 5,000 steps :)
    Go for house viewing and walk :)

    Today's goals:

    Log everything I eat
    Be in the green
    Drink 4 bottles water
    Get 5,000 steps
    Go for house viewing and walk
    Do food plan and update shop
