    Recap F 4/8
    1) PT exercises, including one new with resistance & think I've figured out how to incorporate other new exercise (need something several inches high to step on), done before work despite myself :smirk:

    5) Wash towels / clean kitty hallway / balance bank accts / update budget s/s / declutter 15 min. / another ta-da? TA-DA! :) ok for Friday evening 4/6
    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm Sat. (errands, household chores, maybe try easy hike with hubby & dog) = 2/6

    April 5# challenge {Sat. weigh-ins}
    SW 4/2 173#
    4/9 171# net calories & sodium better this week

    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)
    • 3.1.22 (still recovering from flu 2.23-2.25)
    • 3.31.22 maintaining not gaining
    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
    • Started PT (physical therapy) exercises 1.28.22 due to overuse of arthritic knees
    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 Sunday
    1. Tea! Check in on MFP. Breathing & stretching. Lifts.
    2. Log food in calendar. Fold laundry. (Movie?)
    3. AM elliptical.
    4. Finish script. Early PM park walk?
    5. Game. Peanut gallery. Read EOP and update Goodreads.
    6. Comment on 3 blog posts. Link to blog.
    7. Shoot video script.
    8. Evening: SocMed 30 min. Update WCDP. Dinner: Pasta. Drink more water. No, more. Keep the pitcher in the fridge full. You're not actually hungry. Make some tea. Drink more water! Chop celery. Update JFT.
    9. Bedtime: Gratitude journal. Therapy exercises: crunches, push-ups, squats, ankle lifts, box jumps, plank. Meds. Floss, rinse, brush teeth.
    10. Upcoming: Post office & city council meeting Mon 6P. WHERE? Tax time!

    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: 205.0

    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.
    7. Theater: Read play for discussion Mar 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. April and May and then summer.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    Monday morning again, how quickly the weeks go by!

    I did well on Saturday, but went completely off piste on Sunday. I spent the whole day clearing stuff out at parents house, and going back and forwards to deal with the loads of laundry at home. I didn't want to waste the good drying weather. I ended up really sore and stiff. my food plans didn't work out, as it didn't fit in with family.

    Today will be more of the same, the house clearing is now priority, before the professionals come in later this week.

    JFT Monday 11th April

    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Back exercises
    Foot exercises
    More laundry
    More house clearing
    Banking for son

    Crazy week starting. Traveling, then international business partners will be in town. Meals will be out for lunch and dinner most nights. With little time for exercise. No goals today other than surviving the visit and the 7 hour drive home.

    Back from a fun family weekend with the grandkids. Despite the damp and chilly weather, I did get out for a walk on Saturday while the birthday girl was napping. Three is such a delightful age! Even the simplest things - a bowl of berries, a shiny balloon, and a chocolate cake with purple icing and "unicorn sprinkles" - are a source of joy and wonder.

    On Sunday, my daughter organized an egg hunt for the kids. She assigned a separate color to each child and adjusted the difficulty by age. I got to "hide" the purple eggs for the three year old while my husband came up with some tricky spots to challenge our oldest grandson. While most of the eggs held candy or small toys, there were a few gag eggs as well that the kids could exchange for larger items like bubbles and squishy balls. We were all amazed that the live worm hidden in one of the older kids' eggs managed to escape through one of the tiny safety holes in the egg.

    Overall, it was a great weekend, but I did have lots of take-out food and, of course, cake. Today it's back to planning and eating balanced meals and trying to get more exercise.

    Recap - Weekend goals 4/8-4/10
    Make healthy choices - Only about half the time. Too many carbs, too few veggies, and far too much sodium.

    Get out and walk - :)

    Busy weekend, included recycling old microwave, buying/installing new shelf bracing & putting all the clothes back into my section of closet, finance tasks, final decluttering/cleaning of dining & family rooms, and decorating for Easter for when my family comes. Even fit in two short hikes with hubby & dog. Had wonderful Palm Sunday service & brunch at church, first time in three years, and ate too much. Didn't log food since I had no idea, and probably not enough water all day. Back to logging today.

    1) PT exercises before work :smiley: not enough time for multiple sets but included two new exercises added last week, working on my balance/hips
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories < 200 red / 96 oz. water
    4) Register for workplace lunch hikes / GA-S testing / empty Deleted stuff day / emails current / review last week's webinar Chat

    April 5# challenge {Sat. weigh-ins}

    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)
    • 3.1.22 (still recovering from flu 2.23-2.25)
    • 3.31.22 maintaining not gaining
    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
    • Started PT (physical therapy) exercises 1.28.22 due to overuse of arthritic knees
    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

    Spring weather finally cooperated so hubby, dog & I hiked the one mile loop at He-Nis-Ra Park on both Sat. and Sun. It was cold enough to wear my winter coat on Sat. but warmer Sunday. Here's me with very happy dog yesterday. We enjoyed the rarely seen blue sky & sun LOL. My knees were ok until Sun. evening, no surprise with the amount of activity over the weekend. Nothing an Aleve couldn't handle.
