    Recap R 4/14 ~ PTO day for me. Happy it's sunny, but cool temp & very windy.
    1) PT exercises :smiley:
    2) Move hourly :) 8K 35 floors 13/14 / maybe walk dog wind gusts to 40mph, saw a few snow flakes, wind chill in 20s = nope to dog walk
    3) Net calories zero / NO snacking if bored :( evening after church snacks but daily w-i ok / 96 oz. water = net cals & sodium red but not horrible, fiber & protein excellent, calcium not bad, 80 oz. water
    4) Last grocery shop for holiday meal / more Easter dinner prep (extra coffee maker, place settings, baskets, etc.) / digital declutter / newspapers / wash dishes other stuff / another ta-da? TA-DA! = 4/6
    5) 7:00 Maundy Thursday church service :smiley:
    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm PTO Fri. :# really, again? 2/6

    JFT Good Friday 4/15 ~ more PTO/holiday time, rest day from PT exercises after six straight
    1) Move hourly (repeat weather from yesterday means dog walk unlikely)
    2) Figure out supper / net calories zero / no snacking / 96 oz. water
    3) Bake cake for trifle / make molded salad / wash dishes / newspapers / set dining room table / get more serving pieces out / misc kitchen chores / another ta-da?
    4) 7:00 Tenebrae service
    5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / Calm app / no alarm Sat.

    Active days at home getting things ready for Easter dinner with 13 guests, first in three years. I'm so thankful hubby is home full time now, and he's doing nearly all of the spring cleaning = YAY. Means I can focus on other things, and will not be completely worn out & frazzled by time my family arrives to visit on Sunday.

    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

    After a stressful week, I’m taking the day off and going for a bike ride. I’m sure I’ll have goals again soon, but I really just want to take the day to relax.

    Meal Planning: Day 13/30


    Yesterday I was SO busy. THey predicted rain for today, so I had my compost delivered yesterday. I worked from noon until 4:30 --- hauling 5 cubic yards of compost to my flower beds. I finished most yesterday (finished the rest this morning before the rain!).
    So while I am counting yesterday as successfully meal planning .. I didn't really follow my plan because I was outside all day. Then took daughter to court. . it all worked out .. they dismissed her case (driving without her license or insurance.. which she forgot to have in her car). I felt so bad for her though .. she cried after we left.
    So we went to panera bread .. but since I ate a protein bar I just got a soda. But we each had smoothies on the way home. But ran some errands.
    This morning I finished the compost .. hubby and I went to a new restaurant we had not been to. I had 2 chicken tacos .. only ate one. Tonite we are going to our favorite fish fry.
    Tomorrow is our 45 wedding anniv .. so we are celebrating all weekend! And .. I don't have to do the compost cause its done!

    JFt, Friday
    1. clean house
    2. laundry
    3. plan easter meals
    4. april challenge .. meal planning. Tonite is fish fry .. but I'll only eat 1 piece since had a bigger lunch than usual

      I already pre-plan meals for the day. However, my daily CI fat %age had drifted up quite a bit, so:
      I commit to keeping my CI fat%age within 2% of my daily goal 90% of the days. (Allows 3 pass days for celebrations 🤦‍♀️)
      April Challenge:
      CI Fat %age < 27%
      🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣🐣

      Pass days:
      Tues 12: lunch outing with daughters. Hard to log accurately so taking it as a pass day.
      Fri 15: family picnic lunch, and dinner. As above.


      Special holidays present so much darned temptation.

    Eugh I didn't log yesterday. And now I can't remember what I had. I might have a good try at guessing but I don't know whether to just leave it and concentrate on today

    Got a busy day today. I've already blitzed my lounge.

    I have potential visitors today and I need to get my pots done. There's not one in the cupboard. It's disgusting.

    Naturally the pressure of someone maybe coming is getting me.off my butt today and actually doing the cleaning.

    Why I can't just do it on a normal day I don't know!

    I just took a pass day yesterday when we were out with the family. Too hard to accurately track picnic food etc. It’ll even itself out over the week.

    They came back to ours for dinner, and we ordered in pizza. I gave it a miss, but still had some of the other goodies on offer.

    Hi! I need desperately to get back on track, and act like I'm serious about losing, and not just on the easy days. So here goes.

    JFT I am done eating for today. Way over calories. I simply don't want or need anything else and I especially need to break the nighttime cookie habit. So that's it, I'm done.

    JFT Sunday
    1. Tea! Check in on MFP. Breathing & stretching. Lifts.
    2. Log food in calendar. Fold laundry. (Movie?)
    3. AM elliptical. Park walk.
    4. Lunch with family.
    5. Read EOP and update Goodreads.
    6. Comment on 3 blog posts. Link to blog.
    7. Podcast.
    8. Evening: SocMed 30 min. Update WCDP. Dinner: Sushi. 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: Check therapy notes. Did we pay state taxes?

    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: 204.8

    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.
    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. Overall it's been a good week. I just like food so much... *sigh*
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    Staying out of the cookies and candy is going well so far. No post breakfast treat, and I got the roast into the oven without snacking. Yay!

    On the other hand the pair of pants that used to hang on me are now fitting snug. Boo! All the more reason to eat well today.

    Chilly today, but yesterday the weather was just perfect for eating outdoors. I fixed an impromptu BBQ lunch - just burgers, hot dogs, and corn - before the kids' egg hunt. Then we dyed the real eggs, My daughter tipped the entire cup of yellow dye into her lap, so she had a quick shower and I set her clothes to soak. By the time we wrapped up, I needed a nap!

    Up early today to finish the food prep I didn't get done yesterday. We're off to my mom's later this afternoon for another food-filled family gathering. No meal plan today. I logged my breakfast - force of habit - but I'm planning to take the rest of the day off.

    Wishing you all a wonderful day!

    Recap - Saturday, 4/16
    Plan meals - :)
    Log - :)
    Balanced meals - Reasonably balanced, good on protein and sodium. Over calorie goal but under maintenance.
    Hydrate - :)
    Exercise - No. Took a nap instead.
    Quick errands - Did the most important one. Left the rest for the week ahead.
    Color eggs with kids - :)
    Bake cakes and prep ingredients to take to Mom's - Left some of it until this morning.
    Clean up kitchen - :)

    So I was able to skip the ice cream, have plenty of lamb, and still have 120 calories left for tonight. Yay! Hmm. That would be a Greek yogurt, but my store didn't have my lactose free kind for this week. As long as it's not cookies and candy! If I was really good I would eat some broccoli or an apple. I do have some goat cheese that is tasty, but calorific. Hmm. Maybe I can stop thinking about food for a few hours!

    Ive found that when you feel a craving for food, have a cup of water. If you still have the craving, have another cup of water.
    And then if you're still craving then get yourself a snack (because you are actually hungry) whether that be the apple, chopped up carrot, a boiled egg (I look up 100 calorie snacks on Google lol)

    Firstly having the water stops the craving and if it goes then you were just thirsty. And if it's still there and you get a snack because you've filled your tummy with water you end up having smaller snack
    And youre getting your waters in for the day.
    It's a win-win-win situation lol!

    Hope that helps!
    I should probably start doing this again myself lol!

    I've been invited to a wedding in October!
    It's Ash's cousin. I think Ash is being a groomsman :)
    It's the first wedding I'll have ever have gone to..I know I went to one as a kid but as a kid you don't really appreciate the occasion etc. And it wasn't family it was one of my dad's work friends.

    Love an excuse to buy a new dress! But also want to be slimmer before I go so I look nice.. So I have something to aim for now! I know it's not my day or anything but I despise having photographs took of me (unless I'm taking it like a selfie) so in my mind I feel like if I look better in real life I'll look better in any photos.
    I wish I could just love myself as I am but I don't, that's my own insecurity but atleast I can do something about it and try and sculpt a body I do like!
