    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.

    Age 64, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI
    UG (need to be realistic): maintain 150

    11/5/15 = 195.0 joined MFP with no real plan except It's. Not. A. Diet.
    1/10/17 = 185.5 clearly not a regular on MFP / joined JFT, best group ever! :smiley:

    06/24 = 178.0 fluctuated during week, but ended ok

    11/11 = 164.5 this is temporary b/c very high sodium yesterday

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

    JFT Saturday 12th Feb

    Log everything yes, although had to estimate a few things
    Stay under 1500 calories no, 1580
    Eat some veg yes
    Cook chicken, no takeaway yes
    Tidy kitchen yes
    Back exercises no
    Foot exercises no

    Spent Saturday afternoon in the kitchen, cooking meals for the weekend and for the freezer, while talking to my sister in law on the phone to help occupy her time, as she has covid and is isolating in her bedroom. Really wanted a chocolate cake and the oven was on so made a small one. A piece of that spoilt my logging for the day!

    Can't promise to be good today as it's yet another very wet Sunday and I have cake :) We are meant to be filling a skip at my parents house but nobody wants to do it in the heavy rain.

    JFT Sunday 13th Feb

    End of January:
    Today: 203.1

    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?

    Woke up to a winter wonderland this morning after a run of sunny spring-like days. I love snow! I may try to squeeze in a short walk, although it'll be a busy day. My daughter's family will be over later this afternoon, so I need to get my chores done early. We'll be doing a Super Bowl spread, and my grandson has asked me to make a "football cake." I do elaborate cakes for the kids' birthdays, but I'm going to keep this one simple.

    Hitting my balanced meals goal may be a challenge today, but I'm going to try by limiting my portions of salty, fatty foods and making sure I get some fruit and veg. I've had to really limit the alcohol since my heart arrhythmia diagnosis, so that saves me some calories. Silver linings ;)

    Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday!

    Recap - Saturday 2/12
    Log - :)
    Balanced meals - :)
    Stay hydrated - :)
    Walk outdoors - :)
    Clean up kitchen - Half
    Final decision on tile - Not quite. Small complication.
    Laundry - No
    Bed by midnight - :)

    JFT Saturday

    - ride damn bike 😀

    Almost didn’t ride the bike yesterday, but it was my only goal, so I did. It was an easy ride, but a ride nonetheless.

    Wasted 4 houses early in the day where I could have walked, but it was cold and I was tired. When I got home, I went and bought running shoes. Been having trouble with plantar fasciitis and am hoping new shoes will help a bit. They aren’t the prettiest shoes, but they do feel good. Maybe I’ll bundle up and give them a try today.

    No plans for the super bowl other than to watch it.

    JFT Sunday
    - up 7:30 😞
    - Shower😞

    2) Move hourly :) 5.3K 10 floors 11/14
    3) Alternate ice / heat on knee :smiley:
    4) Net calories < 500 red / 80 oz. water :smiley: best day in long time -163, sodium not so great, fiber & protein ok, calcium low, 80 oz.
    5) Wash dishes / wash bedding ~ in progress ~ done / fold line-dried laundry, bring upstairs & put away ~ in progress ~ done / bday wishes to ST / declutter 15 min. / organize tax records / another ta-da? did enough :p 6/7
    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINER / VOLTAREN / 7:30 alarm (9:00 church) = 4/5

    JFT Sunday 2/13
    1) Church 9:00 :smiley:
    2) PT exercises / alternate ice & heat while watching Olympics / do not snap at hubby b/c my knee hurts
    3) Move hourly
    4) Supper: meatloaf, butternut squash, mashed potatoes / net calories < 400 red / 80 oz. water
    5) Gas in car on way home from church :) / organize more for tax prep / declutter 15 min. / another ta-da?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainer / Voltaren / 6:30 alarm (PT exercises before work)

    My knee is really hurting today. I'm hoping it's my arthritis due to the cold spell we're in right now, currently 10F (-12C) with wind chill below zero, and not the overuse inflammation. Ugh, this is getting old.

    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

    Have a blessed day!

    New shoes helped yesterday, I was able to walk/jog a 5k with little pain at the time. Later the plantar fasciitis really flared up. Guess I wasn't ready for the longer distance, but I've been limiting my steps to around 5000 a day in hopes of the issue healing. That isn't working... On an up note, riding doesn't seem to bother my foot much AND this time it's only my right foot. It was both feet before.

    Yesterday was pretty good except for the great American Cookie loaded with icing that I ate. It was yummy but like 500 calories. I had it in my day, but there was just no need for it. Almost missed my ride yesterday as we got back late from running errands, but I managed a quick 10 miles at the beginning of the Super Bowl.

    Tonight I'm teaching spin, then hubby is making dinner I think. Nothing fancy.

    @cschmitz110515 I hope your knee gets to feeling better after the cold spell!! The cold weather bothers my old ankle and knee injuries as well! Hugs my dear friend, you'll be in those 5ks and 10ks once again, I believe in you!!!🤗

    @JFTers - Thank you ALL for sharing your JFT stories and journey!! It is so inspirational to hear where everyone has come from and where everyone is going!! Nobody should feel disappointed for the time that has past and successes you feel haven't been achieved; remember this is about a healthy lifestyle!! That doesn't happen in a short amount of time, especially when life brings challenges!! Overcome and persevere on!! 🦸‍♀️
