    6) Alternate ice & heat home too late / unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren gel / Calm app / 6:30 alarm (PT exercises & some weights for Just Move It day at work) = 3/7

    JFT W 2/9
    1) PT exercises & some weights before work ~ oof, can't skip these workouts :D / log Just Move It for work
    2) Move hourly / pace in office during webinar
    3) Sloppy joes for supper / net calories zero / 96 oz. water

    Last night's pizza was so-so even though friend and her hubby rave about it. P ordered me a 10" special. To me it was bland, I couldn't even tell it had sausage as one of the toppings. I wasn't tempted to eat too much. Tried P's veggie pizza which had more flavor. Then P got out her oatmeal protein balls ~ hard to not devour them all. At least P and I got to catch up with each other. Got home, watched some Olympics & chatted with hubby. After my unsatisfying supper, I snacked more than I should have. Oops. Didn't even try to log, too many unknowns. Today will be better.

    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 at bread store & 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 = sad me but good for my knee
    • 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

    JFT Tuesday
    - Weigh :smiley:
    - Shower :(
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:

    - Log Food :smiley:

    - Family dinner :neutral:
    - Crash :smiley:

    Deep breaths y'all, we got this!


    Work is starting to give me chest pains, but it'll be okay. Knowing it's just stress makes it less important. Anyway yesterday evening was pretty good, and that is what I choose to focus on.

    Sierra popped in to pick up her passport/ SS Card to use as ID for her new job. I barely caught her before she headed out, but I did get a hug. Tim was sad he missed her.

    Rode the Peleton last night after work and before Bible study, it was a dreadful ride, but it was better than no ride. Think I'll take tonight off as my legs are weary and I teach tomorrow evening. I'm not used to riding every day anymore. I'll get back there.

    Took V to PT at 8:00 this morning, just to find out they moved their office. Luckily it was close. Tried to call into the 8:30 meeting, but my car wasn't cooperating, but I made it to work in time for the 9:00 meeting, so I'll take the win there.

    JFT Wednesday (Yep, only Wednesday)
    - Up by 6:30 (yes but didn't get out of bed until 7:00)
    - Weigh :smiley:
    - Shower :smiley:
    - PT by 8:00 (see above) :neutral:
    - 8:30 meeting :(
    - 9:00 meeting :smiley:
    - Install new print driver on new laptop :smiley:
    - Print ACT stuff for Saturday :smiley:
    - Work on lab PC at 11:00
    - Log food.
    - Stay Green
    - Go to post office and get stamps before 4:30
    - Home by 4:30

    I'm so sorry to hear about the passing of your mum. I can't even begin to imagine how that must feel.
    Do you have siblings or other family members that could help with her belongings?

    Know we're always here okay ❤️

    Over here in the UK. Or atleast in my school (and I know it was in the previous school too)
    We had odd socks day to celebrate being different and anti bullying.
    Funnily enough my kids are always in odd socks and on this particular day (I didn't get the memo it was odd socks day)
    I sent my kids in matching socks, feeling dead proud of myself I actually found matching pairs. Can't say the kids were impressed but teacher had spare socks to make them odd again 😂😂


    Last week they had pyjama and BYOBook for National Readng Week and they also celebrated the Chinese New Year.
    A family that goes to the school who are Chinese brought fortune cookies for the whole school!

    @littleblackskirt - I'm so very sorry for your loss. I hope you find solace in memories of time spent with your mom.
  • beachwalker99

    @mytime6630 - I'm sorry your daughter is having such a rough time, and I will keep her (and you) in my prayers. It's so hard to see our children suffer, no matter the age. It's harder when we worry that we can't keep them safe. Having a chronically ill child can be traumatic, taking a toll on our health and wellbeing. Mental illness is particularly difficult.

    I hope you have someone you can reach out to. My younger son struggled for many years with acute depression, anxiety, and suicidality, and was hospitalized several times in his twenties. The third time, my husband and I were fortunate to finally find a family education and support program run by the hospital. The therapists running the program were great, and it helped us a lot to connect with other families. I also wound up going back to my own therapist for a while.

    Even as you are caring for your daughter, please take care of yourself ((( <3 )))

    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: 200.8

    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 tomorrow is a text-the-parents day. Haven't messaged them in awhile. Maybe call over lunch.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    I need to get into the habit of drinking more water. My only drink is black coffee. Part of the day I drink decaf and the rest of the day I drink regular caffeinated coffee! 🙂
