    Recap 5/4 W
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley: had wanted dog walk but temp was 31F when I woke & I don't want my knees stressed by the temps as well as distance
    2) Walk dog 3 miles after work :sunglasses: 3.18 miles in 1:02 pokey pace but that will improve ~ happy dog & happy me
    3) Move hourly / stairs breaks / pace in office during 2hr webinar :mrgreen: 14.5K 27 floors 14/14 boom!
    4) Net calories < 200 red / 96 oz. water :smiley: net cals -159, sodium green yay, fiber & protein excellent, calcium low-ish, 96 oz. water
    5) GA-S testing & F&Ds / webinar 10-12 / complete, pdf & digital sign webinar summary form / submit form with CPE cert if rec'd today / review OnBase updates, register for training if nec. = 4/5
    6) Hang hummingbird feeder / fill w/ jelly & hang oriole feeder / clean suet feeder, fill w/ oranges & hang / start grocery list / wash dishes / another ta-da? cleaned/refilled 2 birdbaths (unplugged heated one yay), made overnight oats, put out No Mow May sign TA-DA! = 3/6
    7) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 6:15 alarm (PT exercises 1 set, final PT appt. 8:30) :smiley: 5.5/6

    JFT 5/5 R
    1) One set PT exercises :) / final PT appt. :) / complete PT Google survey
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks / pace during webinar
    3) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    4) OnBase training with IT 10:00 (Teams) / print/save CPE from W seminar & submit with webinar summary form / GA-S testing & F&Ds / Facebook Live video / AICPA webinar 2-3 / complete webinar summary form, pdf & digital sign, save/print CPE cert, submit form & cert

    6) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 6:00 alarm (PT exercises or dog walk before work)

    Had my final PT (physical therapy) appt. this morning. Jessica is very pleased with my progress, says she can see I've been working at the exercises, and my form still good. This will be something I will be doing at least 3-4 days per week for the rest of my life, I think. Even though I was an avid walker prior to my overuse injury on top of arthritis, it became clear to me there's lots of muscles I was not really using much. I can tell the difference with my leg strength, balance, ease of mobility and less knee pain over time. Yay!

    May Exercise Challenge:
    Goal 1: PT exercises 4-5 days per week
    Week 1: :smiley::smiley::smiley:
    Goal 2: 3 mile dog walks, up to 5 days per week by end of May if knees permit

    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

    Happy Wednesday y'all!

    Well, I'm not losing weight, but I am logging and staying around maintenance. I'll take that for now. Its the week leading up to prom so we've been doing prom stuff. Tuesday was hair. Wednesday was dress pick up and mom redoing her hair she didn't like. I am no beautician, but I can mix chemicals and use a timer. She does like it better now. Tonight she gets her nails done. Tomorrow is a chill day, the Saturday is prom! I'm excited to see her all dressed up.

    As for me it's Thursday, but this morning it seemed like a Monday. V forgot something at home that she needed for school, which meant I was going to be late for work. I got her stuff then realized I forgot my badge and at home. Went home left, then realized I hadn't taken my meds, so back home again. It was 9:00 by the time I made it to work this morning... Other than that it is work, mom's bills, Spin class and date night. Looking forward to date night.

    Another late post. I usually set the post up the night before and then make final changes and add comments in the mornings, but it's been a hectic week.

    I did pretty well for a day with no promises. I had my cake, but I have ten calories left because of my dumbbell routine, which I will do soon. So I ate back all but ten of my exercise calories. I'm still avoiding veggies so I need to fix that, but all in all a good day.
    So for Friday:

    1. Walk 20 mins
    2. Eat under calorie limit
    3. no cookies
    4. Eat veggies
    5. Work on list

    JFT Thursday 5th May

    Stay under maintenance yes
    Only one snack 2
    Back exercises no

    Finish list almost

    I ran out of steam in the afternoon yesterday, just didn't want to do anything. I'm soooo tired of feeling cold, it's May fgs, it should be warming up by now! I need to get a grip or I'll ruin all the progress I made in April.
    I'm meeting a friend at a garden centre today, but don't think I'll buy anything, it's still too cold to put plants out. I haven't got my usual interest in my garden this year, right now it's a chore not a pleasure.
    Heavy rain today, so probably won't walk. Also don't want to push my back too far on a Friday, need it to cope with Saturday!

    Happy Thursday!

    Good day yesterday. Food choices were iffy, but the overall was okay. Date night was fun we won at trivia. The nice thing about trivia is that we can go, hang out and play and still be home before 10:00. Works well for me.

    Today I'm going to go down and pay mom's property taxes. I totally don't understand the bill they sent, so rather than mess it up, I'm just going to go ask... After that I need to pick up the boutonniere for prom tomorrow.

    @littleblackskirt - I hear you! It's cold and wet here today as well, and I'm so far behind in the garden. I just want to curl up under a blanket with a hot drink and something sweet.
    @cschmitz110515 - Hooray for you getting to the end of your physical therapy! Hope it's smooth going ahead,
    @TerriRichardson112 - I'm blown away by your Daily Done lists! Noting accomplishments is such a refreshing perspective :)
    @pridesabtch - Glad to hear that you've got some clarity on your job. Hope your daughter has a wonderful time at prom and that you're enjoying all the shared preparation.

    Well folks, I made it to Friday (yay!) and almost to the end of a loong Spring semester. Spring classes wrap up next Tuesday, and then I'll have a few days to get my grades in and reset before my summer classes start. It's going to be a rainy weekend, so hopefully I can resist my urge to slack off and get some indoor chores done.

    On the upside, I'm only about a pound and a half away from my midyear weight goal. I have a hard time resisting snacks if my baseline calorie allowance gets too low (under 1400 for me), so I've adjusted my MFP calorie limit to ease into a slower half-pound-a-week weight loss goal. That will allow me to get what I need and still have flexibility. We'll see how it goes.

    Eye doctor - :) Apparently, I'm getting less nearsighted but have more trouble with close work :D
    Gardening - :) Not as much as I'd hoped, but I did get the deck boxes planted.
