    JFT Thursday 10th Feb

    Stay under maintenance yes
    Proper meals, and eat some veg! yes, evening meal stressful with a grumpy tired child
    Back exercises no
    Foot exercises no
    Walk no, the wind was bitter cold and I didn't want to go out
    Pay for funeral by phone yes, took an hour and a half!
    Sort bins, fill mum's yes
    Get paperwork up to date yes

    Can't believe it took so long to pay for funeral. Several call backs after I pointed out they weren't charging me properly... they were asking for less than half of what it should be. Of course, I'd like to pay less, but I knew it was wrong and didn't want to risk the day being upset because they hadn't been paid. I was sure I was right as it is to be the same funeral as my Dad's last year.

    Felt so flat and sad that I went to bed at 8pm. Nice and warm in bed with a book!

    Upset again this morning reading about a toddler who died after swallowing a button battery from a toy. His injuries were horrific, those batteries are so dangerous.

    I've no oomph today, I'm going to have to put my big girl pants on and make myself get on with the day. It's so frosty and cold. I'm going to start logging again even if I don't stick to 1200 calories. I know it works, logging makes me think about what I'm eating.

    JFT Friday 11th Feb

    Log everything (breakfast logged already)
    Stay under 1500 calories
    Eat some veg
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises

    Shopping

    Visit care home
    Fill bird feeders

    JFT F 2/11 ~ TGIF!
    1) Move hourly

    5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / VOLTAREN / Calm app / no alarm Sat. yippee

    We had several inches of snow fall overnight. No biggie, I was going to drive through, then road grader came down our street just as I was getting dressed. Nice little ridge at end of driveway, so hubby was a sweetie and cleared snow for me. He also brushed snow off his 4WD so I could take that to work instead of my little Honda Civic. <3

    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

    @Snowflake1968 Hi Tracey. The finished card fits into an A5 envelope.
    1. The design is drawn or traced onto parchment paper. I used a white gel pen for this design.
    2. It is then embossed with ball tools to make it 3-d.
    3. The edges were perforated with a pin tool to look like lace and removed.
    4. The heart/birdcage of this design were then perforated with a pin tool, and removed so that the coloured card could be seen.
    5. I attached the finished design to rose gold card with gold brads, adding embellishments of jewelled hearts, and a gold peel off inside the heart shape.
    6. I then printed an insert and attached it to the inside of the card.
    7. I rounded the corners with a radius punch.

    Hey all! Thank you so much for the kind birthday wishes. We had a few schedule changes this week - started a new daycare which means some changes for us all and it went great! Everyone is settling in nicely. It's such a relief to have more dependable childcare as I go into my busy season at work! I'm back to work full time and as a manager for the first time in 2 years so it's been a change, but I'm thriving! I ate too much cake every night this week...which also led to some poor lunch choices, but I did cook dinner at home every night! T.O.M arrived and is kicking my butt, feeling super bloated and crappy...so extra water today, extra rest tonight and keeping a positive attitude. Have a great weekend everyone!

    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
    End of January:
    Today: 201.3

    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? 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 this is going to be a writing-heavy weekend. I hope I can manage it.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    JFT Friday 11th Feb

    Log everything (breakfast logged already) yes
    Stay under 1500 calories 1351 cals, actually in the green if I use walking cals
    Eat some veg no, ditched my plans and had a bacon butty
    Back exercises only the easy ones
    Foot exercises yes
    Walk yes, very cold
    Shopping yes
    Collect prescription yes
    Visit care home yes
    Fill bird feeders yes

    I finally got round to going through the boxes of mum's things which I'd collected from the care home last week. I found a large box of chocolate truffles she'd been given for Christmas, almost full. I ate 4, spread throughout the day, and logged each one. I know I'd have eaten more if I hadn't posted that I'd log and report back here.

    Today we have heavy rain and gales, I won't be going out.

    Didn't post goals yesterday, was just too busy and tired!
    But I've woken up today feeling pretty optimistic so gonna run with that lol!

    JFT Sat 12th Feb

    - Take meds
    - Log all food
    - 6 waters
    - Tidy up house
    - Walk dog?

    Bit unsure of walking the dog. Parvovirus has been going around and I've not walked the dog for 2 weeks. He's getting grumpy. He's had garden play but it's not enough. It's just he's not insured and not up to date with his jabs (on the list of things to do) poor doggy but I don't want to risk him getting ill as many dogs are requiring overnight stays at the vets to recover.

    He's also getting a bit tubby now, he doesn't look that big but for a whippet, he's getting pretty chunky.

    Lots of friends yesterday, but hubby and I decided to go out for beer and wings and I drank more than intended. Had fun though. Wouldn’t change it.

    This morning I drove V to a neighboring county to take the ACT. I brought a blanket and napped in the car for the first 3 hours. Now I’m killing time playing on my phone. With the essay I think it’s with 4.5 or 5.0 hours. It’s pretty cold out, but I may try to find my gloves and go for a walk.

    Nothing else planned today.

    JFT Saturday

    - ride damn bike

    Yesterday gusty winds were from the south, temp reached 40F (4C) and lots of snow melt. Then winds shifted from north, front moved in, and anything melting froze. Today's high will be 13 (-10C) & less windy, but I am loving the sunny blue skies. :sunglasses: Tomorrow will be the same. No pressing errands to run, told hubby I want to stay home today. Loving that we can relax more on weekends, now that he's staying home, and we don't feel like we have to squeeze everything in because it's our only chance. Good day for me to get things done inside. Sunny days in winter energize me, especially after so many dreary days.

    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

    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
