    This week is finally settling down. Started with hubby's bday & afternoon off last Fri., Mom's 85th bday road trip Mon., afternoon at dentist yesterday, and smaller stuff in between. Yesterday was abnormally warm, reached low 40s (F), but today is back to our real winter of 12(F) and wind chill -2.

    Thought I'd share this. The feeling is real!

    Recap T 2/1
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley:

    6) Alternate ice & heating pad / any ta-da? minor but TA-DA = 1.5/2
    7) Unplug 9:00 / Voltaren gel / Calm app / 6:30 alarm (PT exercises before work) = 3/4

    JFT W 2/2
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / don't stress Fitbit numbers... remember, you had no Fitbit for one month & it was fine
    3) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    4) Facebook Live video / clear email backlog / prep Title 31 / leave 3:00
    5) Pick up citrus order 3:30 / wash towels / wash dishes / Bday wishes to E / another ta-da?
    6) Alternate ice & heating pad / unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren gel / Calm app / 6:30 alarm (PT exercises before work)

    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 ~
    • 1.31.22 forgot to measure & log (DDS 8:20, quick stops for bread & grocery essentials, then to mom & dad's for her bday)
    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 ~ medico nixed race b/c inflammation in knee due to overuse & my arthritis
    • 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

    Scale goals
    End of 2017: 174.6
    End of 2018: 189.2
    End of 2019: 196.4
    End of 2020: 187.4
    End of 2021: 194.4
    Today: 200.2

    Ongoing plans/ideas
    1. Purchases: Look for an "ugly Christmas sweater" and a long-haired doll at thrift stores. Practice French braiding. Go to used bookstore and look for GR purchase list.
    2. E2: Find a way to incorporate changing words from one part of speech to another. Students need to know how to review multiple sources and synthesize information in order to draw a conclusion. Need practice with the difference between transitions and overlapping (at end of paragraph - "another issue is Y" vs "there are other issues besides X"). Quit using "in conclusion" and "I believe" and other writing-about-my-writing phrases. Confusion between direct/indirect objects and prepositional phrases. Use the UDHR and the Declaration of Independence to study paraphrasing; use that to front-load Machiavelli and how to deal with challenging texts. Confusion between everyday / every day and similar constructions.
    3. E1: Need practice with quoting & paraphrasing sources, identifying claims that would need support, use of last names for reference, and capitalization practice (common/proper nouns, titles). Difficulty using possessive nouns in their own writing. Honors: practice subject/object pronouns (my friend and I / my friend and me). Poetry: Revise "Songs are Poetry" handouts.
    4. Curriculum Development: Writing mini-unit. Review scholarly research on 5PE. (I think I can have this as an intro to the research unit so that they also get exposure to how quotes are integrated and cited.) Parallel structure; use of emotional language, specific detail. Use "Write About a Pebble" lesson from Atwell. How long should each unit take? Do research on characteristics: curiosity, persistence, resilience, creativity, responsibility, optimism, courage, integrity, authenticity, leadership, self-awareness, humility, compassion - others? Include grammarly check on essays! Review assessments. What is the purpose for each unit? What should the controlling ideas be in a study of world literature? Review world lit options. Write 1 reflection weekly; type one in Classroom by Weds. Copy-paste to discussion board for comments due Friday. Homework: Online journal Mon due Tue; Reflection Tue due Wed; C&P journal in class Wed; Comments Thu due Fri. Bonus if you are the first response; further bonus if you respond to comments on your post. Grammar practice Mon & Wed; quiz Fri. Unit plan for research (Idea for regular: comparing same story on sites with different biases).
    5. Professional Development: Write blog post weekly. Comment on 3 posts each week - Tu Th Sun? Check with PSC. Talk with Z about articles and/or conference proposals. Look into publishing and literacy doctoral programs.
    6. Medical: Dentist May 12. Oct 14 1p. PCP Apr 12 9:15. Therapy 1/26 10A and 2/24 4P. Ankle 9:30 2/7. PT 4p Mon/Fri
    7. Theater: Read play for discussion Feb 8 7P.
    8. House: Siding. Or perhaps bathroom floor. How to remove cement.
    9. Fun: Open beading on Thursdays. Coloring at library on Tuesday. Put jewelry away. Edney Hack Nights alt Weds. ASL? Spanish/Portuguese practice? Practice piano. ROL Secret Adversary. Buy bike rack for car.
    10. Volunteering ideas: Theater. Library. Animal shelter. Community Kitchen. Emerge Georgia training.
    11. Family: Book group. Dinners?
    12. Writing: Blog post: Running, Racism and Rum: Learning to Handle Discomfort. Fanfic: Create a scene list for the Batgirl story. Finish the cafe scene for the Titans story.
    13. Lifting: 15 squats, 15 deadlifts, 10 shoulder presses, 15 arm raises, 10 pushups, 30 crunches, 15 side lifts, 15 back kicks. Horse stance for 5 breaths, tree for 10 breaths each leg.
    14. Summer: Organize photos with the family. Write Clois. Write Stuffy and Friends. Create blog posts for video lessons.
    15. Other: Practice hair braiding with D. Remind D to ask his dad about the table and check with home repair contractors. 3 posts/week? Create test for MLA format. Create test for infographics and visual information. Remember that M does not like surprises! Check dates of classes and update semester plan. She Should Run vision statement. Update standards on board. When to change bulletin board? Indochino suit fitting - Atlanta or Nashville?

    WFTY: Focus. I think I'm doing okay for the moment. It's just that there's a LOT going on.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    One of the reasons I’ve been busy and having trouble interacting is I’ve been in a big mess at work with our payroll system. Secondly my girls birthdays are tomorrow and Friday so I’ve been working on a gift for them. I finished them tonight and I’m so happy with them!

    Today was blech. Monthly started and this one is the pain in the butt kind. Felt bad and tired, and craved brownies. I know my green veggies/spinach/iron intake has been down (something I'm still working on) and so my iron is probably low so went to town on the brownies. (so much for my self-control yesterday)

    At least packing, prepping, and cleaning is enough ahead that I could just do a little today without much trouble.

    So for this week so far calorie-wise, I've done 2 good days (losing weight) and 2 bad days (gaining weight).

    @TerriRichardson112 I saw your comment about completing a habit for January! Congrats!

    will try to catch up on chit-chat tomorrow.
    tired and hope to go to bed soon

    Kitten hit the fan at work yesterday around 4:30, so everything got set back a little bit, but I got most things done. Had a few drinks last night, they fit in my calories, but I should probably have had a little less. So far today has been a quality cluster at work. Meeting at 11:30 to try to sort it out. First real challenge as quality manager for this division. Ugh...

    Other than that, leftover chops for dinner, just need to make some sides. Spin is supposed to be at 6:00pm tonight, but the freezing rain is also supposed to hit around that time so we will see if anyone shows. If not class, I'll come home and ride. I am doing a 2022 miles in 2022 challenge. I started a bit late, so I'm behind in miles, but I think I can catch up.

    JFT F 2/4
    1) Move hourly
    2) Homemade soup (from workplace) for lunch / not sure about supper (SIL might visit) / net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    3) Prep/email BC-CC info request / Title 31 prep / update Project Status s/s / complete & submit PAR, PRO, KRO s/s's / emails?
    4) Bday wishes to sister / email life ins. info / pick up race packet 4:30 / anything ta-da?
    5) PT exercises / alternate ice & heating pad

    After work I'm picking up my race packet for the 5K I'm registered for but won't be walking in. My knee is vastly improved but not 100%. I know walking in another 5K event two weeks ago, when my knee was "mostly" ok, was what got me the medical diagnosis of "inflammation due to overuse & arthritis." So as much as I wish I could, I won't participate tomorrow morning. Part of me is glad. The overnight temp is forecast for 0(F) (or -18C) and will be low single digits by start of race. One frigid 5K already this year is enough. Plus, I get to sleep in.

    An ironic twist to report: At hubby's former workplace (where he was recently terminated before his resignation date took effect), the *kitten* 1st shift supervisor that got hubby terminated was himself fired this week. Ha! Karma's a b1tch.

    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 ~
    • 1.31.22 forgot to measure & log (DDS 8:20, quick stops for bread & grocery essentials, then to mom & dad's for her bday)
    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 ~ medico nixed race b/c inflammation in knee due to overuse & my arthritis
    • 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

    Hour commitment - I won't eat again until tomorrow except my dose of metamusal. Eating with friends was a little excessive, but not too much.

    Edited -- Calculated my daily calories.I really didn't overeat today, according to calories. I guess I just felt it was excessive because it was out of the ordinary eating. I have these strange "eating comfort zones".
