    JFT Monday
    1. Tea! Check in on MFP. Breathing & stretching. AM elliptical. PRELOG ALL FOOD.
    2. Before Class: Check email. Think pink. Squats/crunches/pushups. UPLOAD PLANS & SEATING CHARTS.
    3. English classes: Writing lesson. Document formatting.
    4. SEL classes: Finish/polish script. Pay for hair doodads - Venmo? Sub plans for Thursday? LOL.
    5. Online classes: Reply to emails; enter grades. Input late work. Lunch: SCP, read. Review memoir unit. Comment on 3 blog posts. Plan for blog post.
    6. Planning: Therapy. Read EOP; update Goodreads. Duolingo lesson. Shoot video. SCP.
    7. Afternoon: Park walk. SCP.
    8. Evening: Parents visit. Dinner: Ham and... ? 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. Floss, rinse, brush teeth.
    10. Upcoming: Articles? Conferences?

    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: 203.8

    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. I just need to figure out what I'm going to focus ON.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    Not the best weekend ... ate way too much again! I do really good for a few days .. get off.. and it takes me days to get back on track and eat right.
    Saturday was our 45th anniversary .. and we went to Longhorn Steakhouse. I did good .. ate only half of my chicken and sweet potato.
    But today is easter .. and while I had no candy here.. I ate cinnamon rolls, dessert .. (which was low calorie angel food cake and low fat pudding.. but I ate too much of it!). And just not drinking enough water.

    So JFT, MONDAY, April 18
    1. log my food
    2. concentrate on water. Not only does it make me feel better, but I am more in control of my food
    3. evening .. water .. water.. water.. water!!!
    4. April challenge .. PLAN MEALS


    April Challenge Lose 5# and Meal planning :
    SW April 1st : 207.0
    April 8 : 204.8
    April 15: 202.6 -- this might not be accurate since I ate light yesterday and did a lot of physical work .. but I'll take it!
    Meal Planning: Day 15/30

    Hour commitment - I won't eat again until tomorrow. Tomorrow I won't eat any desserts unless they're sugarfree or no sugar added. Also, no more than 10 almonds tomorrow. (DH bought almonds for our trip home)

    APRIL CHALLENGE
    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.
    Food choices over the holiday weren’t brilliant, (too much chocolate 🤦‍♀️) but still under maintenance overall. Looking forward to an outing my daughters are planning on Wednesday for my birthday. I will be sensible(ish) until then 😝

    I had a lovely, relaxing day with family yesterday. Didn't log, but I made reasonable choices and kept portions small. I did have a thin slice of the very rich chocolate hazelnut cake I'd made for my grandson, but I skipped the other sweets. Today it's back to planning meals and trying to balance my macros.

    Recap - Sunday, 4/17
    Enjoy time with family - :)<3:)

    Took several days off from posting... Sat. was more food prep (baked & decorated Italian Easter bread, made pudding & whipped cream for trifle, assembled black forest trifle, green bean casserole ready to bake) & final house prep. Easter Sunday was church with hubby then my family at our house for dinner & visit/games <3. Two canceled last minute (one had stomach flu) but we still had 11 guests. Lots of food & fun, and I gave away baggies of candy (mostly so I wouldn't eat it haha). Daily weigh-in not good, no surprise there. April challenge started well but now going in opposite direction. Oops.

    JFT
    1) PT exercises before work :p could tell I skipped 3 days, only did one complete set
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories < 200 red / 96 oz. water
    4) Catch up emails / GA-S testing & F&Ds / figure out observation schedule?
    5) Newspaper / wash more dishes / put away serving pieces, silver, plates / prep lunch & clothes for T workplace hike / another ta-da?
    6) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / Calm app / 6:15 alarm (PT exercises before work)

    I'm tired & back to work in office, and grass is white again as snow is falling. Sigh. Supposed to turn to rain later. Trees are pretty though. Here's the view out my office window:

    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)

    • 3.31.22 maintaining not gaining

    • 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

    I was dragging a bit yesterday, so I didn't get much done around the house or for my classes. But the shopping trip was reasonably productive, and I came home with two pairs of trail shorts, a few basic tees, and a new pair of sneakers. Still need a couple of swimsuits, but that's a bigger project, as is sorting through my warm season clothing to find what fits. Despite the chilly weather, the heat and humidity of a NJ summer are not far off B)

    I've really fallen off the wagon this month. With work being crazy, I've been eating out more and exercising less. Bad combination, but I'm just drained at the end of the day and can't drag my bumout of bed in the morning. Was going to ride this evening with the bike club, but it's snowing and I am a wimp. Plus the road are wet from rain yesterday.

    Today is already shot food wise as I had a nutty buddy bar for breakfast and a chocolate chip cookie for lunch. Plan is to do better this evening and restart with preparation and goals tomorrow. Not preparing lunch is a big downfall of mine. I get too hungry and then either eat junk or wait until I get home and eat a meal followed by another meal just a few hours later. Crazy...

    Late for posting goals, but here they are
    JFT Tuesday
    - Up by 6:30 :(
    - shower :(
    - work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Meetings... :smiley:
    - Train calibration tech on new procedure :smiley:
    - Meetings
    - Leave work by 4:30
    - Bible study at 6:30
    - Leftover chili for dinner
    - No alcohol
    - Bed by 10:00 pm

    Hope your Tuesday feels less like a Monday than mine does...

    6. Planning: Grade poetry projects. Call Edgenuity section 2. Read EOP; update Goodreads. Duolingo lesson. SCP. FINISH SUB PLANS. Draft Week 16.

    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: 205.2

    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. I have too much going on!
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence.

    Sometimes we all have times where nothing seems to be going in the right direction. The good thing is you know where it's going wrong and how to correct it!

    And not going out for a bike ride in the snow and wet roads does not make you a wimp! I wouldn't do it either!

    JFT I am going to skip the cookies and candy. I am going to eat yogurt and a green salad. My salad recipe is a quarter cucumber, a quarter green pepper, and a handful of fresh spinach, with sugar free fat free poppyseed dressing. I can do this!
