    I've had a busy few days both with my daughter and my parents so I'm just now sitting down to reflect on the week.

    I realize I should make a more intentional choice with regard to what I focus on each week. I think a few weeks ago I said I wanted to increase my intentional exercise, and I did that pretty well, but then I had that 3 lb. weight gain last week so that became my main focus. I tried to stay away from salty food this week, but it's tough because I love salt! I never got my period like I thought I was but my rings are still stuper tight so something is going on, Oh well, whatever the reason and whatever my weigh in is tomorrow, I know I just need to keep going and trying to do better each week.

    I think that kind of covers the first two questions of the captains's challenge so I'll start with the third:

    What was your triumph? I followed through on purchasing a new treadmill and went on my first run in a long time.
    So, what will your focus be for week 5? I will focus on planning my meals the day before. I've noticed from my habit tracker that my days after planning go more smoothly than the ones where I forget to do it.
    What are your concerns about your choice? I'm worried I might be too tired some nights to do it or that an emergency with my parents will throw off my plan.
    What is a mini goal in relation to it? I will set a goal of planning my food choices the day before at least 5 nights this week.
    What do you hope to achieve overall? I want to make it more of a habit to make food choices that are truly good for me, not just whatever is easiest or that I'm craving.
    How will THIS focus help you in planning? Making this a deliberate goal for this week will remind me of it's importance to my overall success. Otherwise, I just try to do ALL the things and I can get overwhelmed.

    Hi, all!
    Sorry for the late post of my weight...
    Please add it if it is not too late...

    I updated your weight @ssssseika and I'll ask the MODS to switch you from NWI (no weigh in) to LWI (late weigh in). Please send me an email if you forget to post or know you'll post late for whatever reason (sick, out of town, vacation, etc.) and I can get it excused if I know in advance. Unfortunately, the stats have already been posted. Hope you're having a great weekend! Great loss this week!
    Jessica

    Jessica,
    Thank you so much for adjusting this matter, and I really apologize for making you do extra work.
    I understand the instruction you have provided me; I will follow it moving forward.

    Ramblings of the day
    Good morning team. Another heavy cleaning day, so I am pretty tired. Ended up with a fairly high step count as well. Got a busy couple of days ahead now. Going to get the last groceries in a bit, then doctor to pick up sleep test things, mom should be here around 11:00. We haven't set anything in stone, but I expect she will want to go for a walk. Tomorrow we are taking the bus into town and go shopping, out for dinner in the evening. Wednesday is probably a little more relaxed and she will be picked up again by her partner around 13:00. Have to move my gym around because of her visit and I will likely only go twice this week; Thursday and Saturday.
    Happy Monday <3

    Starting the week off right, I went shopping for some healthier foods, picked up my food scale from my moms and she let me have her george forman grill since mine broke, and did some meal prepping last night. So grilled chicken, long grain brown rice, asparagus and brussel sprouts are on the menu for the next 3 days, also made egg whites with spinach to have today as well.

    Workouts were paused and hopefully will start maybe tomorrow, but I have developed an odd rash at the crease where my thigh meets my hip, at first I thought is was allergies because this time of year I break out a ton, but now it stings and Im 90% sure I have shingles, and the only real issue is anything rubbing there hurts really bad so pretty much all my workout bottoms will irritate it, but I am going to try tomorrow and do what I can, see how that works.

    @angmarie28 I hope it's a simple heat rash...try using corn starch...you're awfully young for shingles...I get a rash there a lot too because of excess skin. Of course, check with your doctor or pharmacist first, but that's what I use...

    I sent a picture to my old coworker, my old co-nurse at the school, and she agrees its shingles. Definitly not a heat rash, I get those sometimes, but this it different, and it looks like theres a few little blisters . I know im pretty young for it, but Ive seen it in kids before so it isnt unheard of. Im going to stop after work and get Domeboro, which doctors recommend a lot for shingles and other rashes.
