    Yesterday didn't quite go as planned. Didn't get on the bike in the morning because I was dealing with school issues. Then my daughter was without her car, so I spent a good part of the afternoon taking her on her errands and picking up the kids from school. No big deal. The chores just get kicked down the road a bit.

    It wasn't the best day for food choices either, although I did end up under my calorie limit. Need to run out this morning to pick up some fruit and veg. We're expecting a major snowstorm tonight, so I'm sure the grocery store will be mobbed with the usual panic shoppers.

    Better get to it. I'll catch up with reading posts this weekend. Happy Friday everyone!

    @Bex953172 - That a ridiculously long time to block access to your money. I'm sorry you're in such a difficult position. Do you have a local community organization that could help you out for the next week?

    Recap R 1/27
    1) Move hourly? :neutral: in a bit of pain still managed 7.3K only 8 floors (actually took elevators) 9/14
    2) Net calories zero / 112 oz. water :s no exercise calories & more calcium leads to -417, sodium not horrible, fiber low, protein & calcium excellent, 80oz. water
    3) Appt. for knee 10:45 / Facebook Live video / tech install 2:00 :neutral: not resolved / clear emails / update PRO s/s / Title 31 prep = 5.5/6
    4) Shop for cards / pick up french bread / find life ins. info / declutter 15 min. / another ta-da? nope, unless I count picking up my prescription = 2/5
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / 6:45 alarm = 5/6

    JFT F 1/28 ~ hubby's birthday & I will make his traditional dinner (we started dating in 1995 and I have made this dinner for him every year since 1996)
    1) Move hourly
    2) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    3) Tech help 10:30 (Teams) / update & submit PAR, PRO, KRO s/s / update Project Status s/s / request PY Title 31 folders / afternoon PTO?
    4) Pick up french bread / bake chocolate cake from Hershey's recipe / make homemade spaghetti sauce / prep cards / hubby time
    5) PT exercises / unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm Sat.

    For those JFTers that know me, you know my exercise of choice is walking dog 3-4 miles or on treadmill when necessary in winter. I haven't been able to do much walking lately. I had a minor knee injury several weeks ago, rested a bit, felt better and walked in a 5K fun run last Friday evening. Bad idea. Knee felt fine during 5K but worse after, and home treatment not resolving, so yesterday I finally had medical appt. to determine possibilities and treatments. Nothing horrible, but definitely inflammation due to overuse and my arthritis.

    On the bright side, both the medico & physical therapist I met with (both wonderful ladies) were impressed and happy with my normal level of activity. Unfortunately, my medico nixed the next 5K race I'm registered for on Feb. 5. And I realize the You vs. The Year Challenge will have to wait. The physical therapist worked with me on exercises to help and gave my a printout so I can remember (information overload).

    Last night, I started on prescription for inflammation, plus alternating heat and ice, plus exercises. Hopefully one week shows improvement, definitely in two weeks, otherwise I go back. That's incentive for me to follow treatments. Wish me luck!

    About me: Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    64 yrs old
    Reside in Green Bay, WI, USA

    2022 Goals: mainly updates from the last two years
    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 track daily on a separate app (for the visual). 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
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking dog, treadmill in winter, but include weights/my home version of circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race or challenge events hopefully fewer virtual this year ~
    • started MapMyWalk app You Vs. the Year 1,022km challenge on Jan. 1
    • Frenzy on the Fox (River Trail) 5K on 1.21.22 ~ untimed event, per MapMyWalk 53.47 & ave. pace 16:30, frigid this year with wind chill at zero
    • registered for Seroogy's Valentine 5K on 2.5.22
    • will register for Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 ~ first time in person since 2019
    • will register for Packers 5K when July details announced
    • will register for Bellin Women's Pink Pumpkin 5K when Oct. details announced
    • will register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K when Oct. details announced
    • watch for other events to add
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last two years to be continued
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ keeping this goal as well
    9) Continue to declutter bedroom, home office, former work from home space (a/k/a dining room) and basement
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship

    1st goal: 185
    2nd goal: 180
    Ultimate goal: 170-175 (178 is considered normal BMI for my height)

    Goals for 2022:
    These are the healthy habits I would like to do in 2022:

    4. To stop mindless eating. To learn how to eat to live, not live to eat.
    5. To make drinking water a regular habit.. and drink 8+ glasses of water a day
    6. To curb and stop nitetime snacking for good. Learn to wait 5 minutes before grabbing food.

    Weekly weigh-in. I plan on weighing every friday
    SW Friday, Jan 1st: 195.6
    SW: Feb 5: 191.8
    SW: Mar 5: 193
    SW: April 2: 190.4
    SW: May 188
    SW: June 190
    SW: July: -- skipped this month
    SW: August: 184.6
    **Skipped recording weigh-ins from August until just now... this is what has happened. Gain of 15 pounds over the holidays. This is something every year I struggle with .. gaining from Halloween until New Years. THIS year, I will learn how to NOT let this happen
    Weight history 2021
    Friday, Jan 8: 194.4 -1.2
    Jan 15: 194.6. +.2 I was down to 193.4 2 days ago .. but this reflects 2 days of mindless eating.
    Jan 22: 191.4 -3.2 5 out of 7 days were good ...
    Jan 29: 194.2 -- this is what happens when I don't track, give into stress and emotional eating. But ... My word for the year is consistency... that means consistently also recording my weight .. and being accountable. So its a new week.. again.
    Feb 5: 191.8 -- trying to get back on track with controlled nite time eating
    Feb 12: 194.3 --- I don't know why, but I can do good for a week, only to blow it the next week. I think the pandemic, the cold dreary weather is leading me to just overeat.
    Feb 19: 194 --- a very small loss, due to 4 days of overeating granola bars and Kind bars.
    Feb 26: 193 -- 5 out of 7 days I did OK, especially with nite time snacking.
    Mar 5: 193 -- stayed the same, but had 2 days of eating icecream and peeps
    Mar 12: 192.6. Started challenge of the rest of the month NO nite time eating at all.
    Mar 19: 190.4 -- 5 out of 7 days NO nite time eating. Goal next week ... 6 our of 7 day no nite time eating, 8+ glasses water @ day.
    March 26: 188.6--- 6 out of 7 days I did good .. no nite time eating. Last nite... food was in control of me. I was so tired, and instead of lying down... I grazed the entire nite. So much that I had trouble sleeping. So while right now my weight is down, I expect it to go up. So next weeks goal is 7 out of 7 days.
    April 2: 190.4 --- not the best week.. but I am still down 5.2 pounds for the first 3 months of this year. So I will look at the positives.
    April 9: 191.2 --- even though I had a OK week, I think eating ham for 3 days .. hoping its just water weight.
    April 16: 187.6 -- a week of more mindful eating, especially in the evenings, plus a lot more exercise with walking and garden work.
    April 23: 187 -- a very small loss, but at least the scale is going in the right direction. I will continue to work on the nite time snacking and emotional eating.
    April 30 188.8 -- got into the ice cream again.I am just 10 pounds before I am in a healthy, normal weight for my height.. but those 10# have been the hardest. I met that goal in 2019 ... trying to get back there.
    May 14: 188.0 -- A week of terrible back pain, so I wasn't really watching, or caring what I ate. So happy that I at least did not gain much.
    May 21: 185.6 -- lots of walking and yard work this past week.
    June 4: 190.1 -- this is what happens when I am not paying attention to habits, etc.
    Missed tracking weight almost all through june and july. back on track now
    July 30: 186.8 --- trying to plan dinner meal better, and doing a lot of walking. Gave up caffeine .. on week 3 now.
    August 5: 184.8 ---- good week. No caffeince, which actually helped with my eating. Planning at least dinner meal is also helping me.
    **Skipped recording weigh-ins from August until just now... this is what has happened. Gain of 15 pounds over the holidays. This is something every year I struggle with .. gaining from Halloween until New Years. THIS year, I will learn how to NOT let this happen .
    2022 Weigh-ins
    SW: Jan 1: 199.0
    Jan 7: 201.6 --- feeling so depressed with this sore on my back... and I guess been eating out of stress/boredom. Not sleeping, so no motivaton. doctor put me on a second round of antibiotics .. so I hope it starts to heel. But I need to get more serious about logging my food ... hate being out of the 100s again! Always said I'd never let this happen.
    Jan 14: 200.1 -- on my 3rd dose of antibiotics, but my back is healing. But have not been eating as healthy as I should be ... and not going to the gym because of covid. Even though losing weight is 90% what I eat, the exercise gets me in the right frame of mind. So I am hoping to get back to at least early morning walking again. But ... at least scale dropped a small amount.
    Jan 20: 200.1. Just having a hard time getting my head into the game. Cold, dreary weather; not enough exercise, and too many nites of stress/boredom/ eating.
    Jan 28: 198.4. Really working harder this week ... well, at least the past few days. Trying to be mindful of what I eat and how much, but more importantly, the evening snacking. I'm also trying to eat more during the day ... I think that might have been my biggest problem. I do so well all day, but give in during the evening hours. Eating more all day has helped.

    I'm down 4.4 lbs since joining you all again! I've been taking my medications more regularly, cooking at home more, and able to better regulate my emotions despite being egged on at every opportunity! :s Difficult week, our kitty had a horrible episode and spent a few days at the emergency vet. He's home but I absolutely emotionally ate - but I recognized it instead of sticking my head in the sand. Back to the vet tonight for some rechecks, hoping all is well. They have no idea what caused it and we've ruled out all the obvious and not so obvious things possible. Here's hoping he makes a full recovery, hes only 1.5 :( Also! We got into the daycare for part time care after all! I am thrilled!!!

    Great job! Congrats on the weight loss... sorry about your kitty. Hoping for a full recovery!

    @Bex953172 - That a ridiculously long time to block access to your money. I'm sorry you're in such a difficult position. Do you have a local community organization that could help you out for the next week?

    I know, we haven't even done anything fraudulent. Impossible seeing as we get paid by the government (benefits).
    It's just a new account. Apparently a common problem with new and old users.
    But as it's under "fraud" they can't tell us what exactly alerted them until the investigations over.
    Im definitely gonna be putting in a complaint.

    Apparently only the money that's currently in the account can't be accessed until the investigation is complete but any new incoming money (like my Carers benefit) can be used. Which hits the account tomorrow. So that's our food shop sorted for the week.
    But the whole thing is ridiculous.

    Apparently they will compensate for financial hardship but I'm not holding out hope.


    I could have accessed a food bank but the nearest one is only open on a Thursday and even then it's a bit of a walk. And because I'd be walking they'd give me less stuff because Id only be able to carry so much.
    And my experience with them have been okay but you don't get some of the major essentials like milk, butter etc. Basically anything fridge/freezer related. And stuff like vegetables are nearly always on the edge of going off.
    Other than that I'm not sure of what else would be available.

    Hey all, still here and reading posts! I saw I got mentioned lol I'm okay!

    Just took a few days off from logging.
    Our bank had been blocked for the last 2 weeks due to "fraud investigation".
    They won't give us any of our money and our rent is still yet to be paid (luckily the landlord is my dad but still not the point) and we ran out of money on our other account.
    We tried to see where the investigation was up to and they just don't even care that we have 3 kids that need feeding.
    So I cheekily had to borrow money off my dad to get more food.
    But I've not ate enough for the last few days to be able to log a diary.
    Naturally I eat less so the girls are still well fed, I panic about running out completely. As long as I can sort out dinner and breakfast I'm happy. Even if it.means I go without.

    It should be sorted within the next 7 days and we'll be fine. It's just extremely inconvenient

    Xx

    So sorry to read this Bex! Hopefully they'll find the problem soon and open your acct back up.. Hugs.

    Thank you for the well wishes! Kitty is home and still doing well. Hes doing so well infact, that when I tried to gather him up to go back for rechecks he sunk his teeth into my arm in protest. He got me really good. He's a big old maine coon cat so its pretty painful. Went to the doctor today and since the cat was just ill....we have to continue to monitor him to be sure it isn't rabies. I'll have to go in for a transfusion if kitty deteriorates again. I got some antibiotics. I also was able to step on the doctor scale to compare my numbers from the beginning of the month. I was 225 Jan 3 and today I was 217! Big snow storm coming so, I'm going to the grocery store after work and Im just gonna take it easy this weekend, only goal will be DRINK WATER!!!

    Recap F 1/28 ~ hubby's birthday & I will make his traditional dinner (we started dating in 1995 and I have made this dinner for him every year since 1996)
    1) Move hourly :) 7.3K 23floors 12/14
    2) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water :p homemade soup (not by me) hard to guesstimate for lunch, hubby's traditional bday dinner of garlic bread, homemade spaghetti and chocolate cake with chocolate frosting YUM = -416, sodium not great, fiber ok, protein & calcium excellent, 88 oz. ? kinda lost track
    3) Tech help 10:30 (Teams) :p progress made but 2nd log-in does not recognize me as user ~ next week / update & submit PAR, PRO, KRO s/s / update Project Status s/s / request PY Title 31 folders / afternoon PTO? yes whoopee = 4.5/5
    4) Pick up french bread / bake chocolate cake from Hershey's recipe / make homemade spaghetti sauce / prep cards / hubby time <3 5/5
    5) PT exercises / unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm Sat. = 3/7

    JFT Sat. 1/29
    1) Move hourly but DO NOT stress about Fitbit numbers
    2) PT exercises / alternate ice & heating pad
    3) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    4) Laundry (already started) / find life ins. info / find Bellin 10K race history & submit to survey / start income tax questionnaire / prep bday cards for mom & sister / another ta-da?
    5) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren gel / Calm app / 7:30 alarm (9:00 church)

    After 1 1/2 days of prescription for inflammation, plus alternating heat and ice, plus exercises, my knee is already starting to feel better. Not great, but better. Hubby noticed right away yesterday that I was walking more normally; so happy I can walk without limping. I'm very glad I went for medical diagnosis & physical therapy.

    Now I must consistently follow medicos' treatment plan & hubby's advice: just because knee is getting better, DO NOT OVERDO. Hubby tells me this is when I may re-injure my knee. Tbh, I'm not always good at being patient, and I do want to resume walking for exercise. The thought even crossed my mind I still want to walk in the 5K race next Sat. that I'm already registered for, even though doctor nixed it. But I think medico & hubby are both right, I must give healing time.

    About me: Carmela
    Height 5'4"
    64 yrs old
    Reside in Green Bay, WI, USA

    2022 Goals: mainly updates from the last two years
    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 track daily on a separate app (for the visual). 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
    5) Exercise 5-6x per week (minimum 4x) ~ mostly walking dog, treadmill in winter, but include weights/my home version of circuit & other x-training
    6) Participate in race or challenge events hopefully fewer virtual this year ~
    • started MapMyWalk app You Vs. the Year 1,022km challenge on Jan. 1
    • Frenzy on the Fox (River Trail) 5K on 1.21.22 ~ untimed event, per MapMyWalk 53.47 & ave. pace 16:30, frigid this year with wind chill at zero
    • registered for Seroogy's Valentine 5K on 2.5.22
    • will register for Bellin 10K on 6.11.22 ~ first time in person since 2019
    • will register for Packers 5K when July details announced
    • will register for Bellin Women's Pink Pumpkin 5K when Oct. details announced
    • will register for Run for the Hill of It (trail) 5K when Oct. details announced
    • watch for other events to add
    7) Be considerate and loving to hubby and have fun together ~ excellent goal last two years to be continued
    8) Make efforts to keep in touch with parents, siblings and friends (most live in other towns or states) ~ keeping this goal as well
    9) Continue to declutter bedroom, home office, former work from home space (a/k/a dining room) and basement
    Word for 2022: Tenacity ~ persistent determination; the mental strength to resist opposition, danger or hardship

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I track daily on a separate app (helps me visualize). My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    I started a 21 day Sewing Area Declutter Challenge today. I had to clear my sewing table of all the accumulated none sewing clutter. I can now actually get at my machine to sew.

    It’s hard to believe that January is almost over. It’s been so good to see the earlier dawn now that the days are getting longer. Roll on Spring.
