    Horrible week for steps. I started logging all my food today. I am going to start bringing my my granddaughters carriage to school with me and start walking the railtrails after work. Tomorrow night we have a meeting after work with the new owners of the company so I probably wont get any exercise in. My weight is creeping back up so the few pounds I lost is coming back. I have an appointment next week with a nutritionist, she is part of the weight doctor I started going to. This week I have to take my son to Boston so we can talk about another surgery. He needs to have neck surgery, they are talking about taking a piece of bone from his hip and putting it in his neck. I lost track of how many surgeries we are up to in the past 3 years.

    I have to ask you guys, do you get friend requests from people you don’t know within the My Fitness Pal app? I have been getting quite a lot lately and I always reject them. It just seems to be something new that’s going on with my account!!

    MFP has had the issue where old, abandoned, accounts are being taken over by bots and hackers to send friend requests to as many people as possible. If the profile doesn't have inappropriate profile pictures, just decline. If they do, there's a thread on the forums to report it. I'll add the link to this post in a moment.

    EDIT

    Here's the thread: LINK
    Here's the form they want you to fill out: LINK

    Today is our first live, in person fitness class. Vaccine certificate is safely downloaded to my Apple Wallet. Yoga mat packed and ready to rumble. I was going to ride my bike but there is no end in sight the rain that started yesterday. Oh well-next week!

    Happy Fall to Everyone

    Do you want to post the rest of last week? I think you posted Wednesday - Tuesday. I'm kind of looking at numbers and...yours were different.

    So, I've been a bad captain/support person this month. And, I'm gonna be honest...I don't see that changing for at least four or five weeks.

    I'm working a lot and when I'm off work, I'm too tired to care about anything. I'm that tired now. I have a huge pile of work and I end the day (sometimes after working 10 hours) having accomplished such a small amount that it is disheartening. Part of my job is support calls. Mid-Sept through the end of October is all support calls/emails. And this is the time of the year we ramp up new trainings--classroom, zoom and self-pace online--but I can't do that work if I'm on the phone or doing data research to answer an emailed question. That's my life until Nov 1.

    Then the holidays. So many people love holidays and look forward to them. I'm not one of them. I have no family. When I did, my immediate family didn't do a lot of holidays (due to a crazy, stupid religion) and that complicated things with the extended family. I tried to do the holiday thing with the husband's family but I'll just leave it at...it just didn't work out the way I'd hoped.

    Don't mind me. I'm just tired and cranky. I need to get exercise but by the time my day ends, I'm wrung out. I should take breaks during the day and walk but the minute I stand up, the phone rings (or while I'm working remotely, my computer rings) or some new crisis appears in my inbox. At this point, I barely take lunch--I find food and eat it while working.

    I'm reading everyone's posts...you are all doing so well and accomplishing so much. I'm pleased for all of you. Keep up the good work!

    I've asked that you be put on the support list--that way you are still on the team but if you miss weigh-in, it doesn't count against you. Hope you are doing okay!

    Sorry-don’t understand. I post my weights on Wednesday morning so steps are previous Wed to Tues
    Sorry if I mucked you up. You can drop me from the steps if necessary. I don’t really make a big effort there.

    I wouldn't say you mucked it up...we do the step count thing Sun-Sat and post results on Tuesday. We are happy to have you on the step team. I'll think about ways to use your schedule with ours. As it happens, you're doing better than me on steps, so keep it up!

    Looks like I absolutely forgot to weigh myself today, so I guess I'll have to post an update tomorrow. Whoops!
