    My JFTers, thank you very much for your support! Lately I have become such a whiner, like I'm the only one with struggles. Sorry about that! I need to remember my WOTY: tenacity. Reading all your posts are so inspiring to me. <3 and hugs to all my JFTers!

    @pridesabtch Been there done that with plantar fasciitis. Rest really does help, and not doing too much too soon. Now I need to take my own advice LOL.

    @MLHC1 Thanks for your comments, and your belief about me returning to the 5K and 10Ks. The competitiveness in me is trying hard to be patient!

    @more_freggies76 Sorry about the hand pains and playing the piano. (((hugs)))

    • 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

    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: 202.1

    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? 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. Today was better but EVERYTHING is a struggle.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    I’ve been going back a page at a time to try to catch up, and I have a few things I want to say before I forget!

    @littleblackskirt I am so sorry to hear about your mum. Sending gentle hugs to you. 🌹

    @cschmitz110515 it sounds like you have something going on with your knees? As active as you are, that must be so frustrating! I hope you didn’t fall on the ice or anything! Your dog must be so sad too. 💞

    @mytime6630 I will absolutely pray for your daughter. That must be so scary for you and your husband, and I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for her to feel so hopeless. I hope the increased dose of medication helps. ♥️

    Hi everyone, took a break from posting (not logging) this weekend to rest and encourage DH to rest, then busy Sunday.

    @TerriRichardson112 Decluttering sewing is kinda like shopping, you discover fabrics and unfinished projects and are hopefully inspired! DH has agreed to make me room for sewing in a corner as soon as we land, which is really nice of him. I've tried to keep my craft stuff organized when I packed them; tried. I hope you're enjoying the declutter and sewing!

    @mytime6630 Happy Onderland! (below 200)

    For me, I'm still packing, trying to work on my habit goals, including shoving boxes and stuff out of the way for some exercise. No loss, slight gain. Still working at it.
    The habit list helps. I've decided to alternate packing and cleaning/spackling days. Doing better at destressing, breathing, and detaching myself from drama coming from relatives. It is helping me right now sticking to the fact that (I believe) this is a door that God opened and path HE wants us to walk, and we will walk it and trust HIM no matter what happens next. No sense worrying about the mountains possibly in our way.


    Hi there!

    Just wondering how you’re doing? When do you actually move? Is it coming up soon? Are you excited?

    I’m not sure what sewing decluttering challenge you’re doing but could you come here and declutter mine next, please?? 😉

    I’m actually spending 30 minutes 4 times a week in mine going through fabric. Oh my goodness! It’s crazy how much I have. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    @PackerFanInGB Dog has been sad b/c I was walking on the treadmill to avoid snow & ice on roads. But arthritis in my knees is worse in during winter weather fronts and cold. Knees were feeling ok-ish and I was happy to walk in the Frenzy on the Fox 5K on 1/21. Bad idea. Right knee much worse, medical diagnosis 1/27 was "inflammation due to overuse & arthritis". Helped by anti-inflammatory prescription (done with that now) and physical therapy exercises. Some days good, some not so good. I must be patient but I'm finding it hard.

    Happy Valentine's Day y'all!

    Yesterday was hectic but good, and I did squeeze in a nap. Spin class was rough as my foot was bothering me, so I didn't do the standing parts, I just called them. Means my workout was lack luster, but it was better than no workout.

    Tim went old school for dinner and made a Chef Boyardee pizza. A throw back to leaner years early in our relationship. It was sweet. He also got me a really pretty sapphire ring. Not really my thing as I don't often wear rings. The stone is rather large but I think it might make a cute pinky ring. The other option, which I'm considering, is exchanging it for something I actually like. We'll see. When I go to have it sized I may look around. If I fall in love with something of similar price I may go ahead and get it.

    Work, dentist and Bible Study tonight. Hoping to ride the Peleton after Bible study, but sometimes by then, I'm just too tired. Unless I squeeze in a nap between work and dentist. Kind of depends on how work goes today.

    Yesterday did not have too many interruptions; mainly just emotional!! Hubby was extra tense and on edge yesterday and projected his chaos onto me. 😳 My response, naturally I overate!! A new issue has arose due to stress....I am chewing my cheeks at night while sleeping and waking up with terrible mouth sores from the chewing. I'll see what I can do to reduce my stress and see if this helps, IDK things have been quite overwhelming lately! 🤦‍♀️

    Well enough complaining / venting about me, Lol!! (I sure appreciate you all being there for support!!)

    Hugs and prayers for all of us who are overwhelmed, tired, and working to overcome. 🌷🧸🌷

    @clicketykeys I saw one of your goals was Duolingo, what language are you learning.

    I've not been logging again.
    Argh it's like I want to do it but something stops me from doing it and it's all in my mind?!

    Either way I stared at myself in the shower for ages yesterday and was like..
    I'm not gonna have the body I want if I don't do it. And then how can I wear the clothes I have in summer (lots of crop tops lol)

    So I tried body shaming myself into some action.. not worked yet but I have had a more healthy attitude and tried not to overeat atleast.
    I just need to log.

    It might be cause the kids are off school. It always puts me off.

    Body shaming tends to only work short term for me, because the changes I want to see are long term and I get impatient. Hope your healthier attitude takes over and sets you up for success. Love ya!
