    I'm 22 calories over because I put goat cheese on my salad. But the day is not over yet. I have time to walk this off.

    It's going to be a tough weekend with mother's day candy in the house. I already ate my afternoon calories, but there's still my dinner which will be 4oz of boiled chicken. Then my exercise calories come into play. I might have another hot chocolate, which has a scoop of fiber in it to quell the cravings. I ordered some cocoa with stevia, so that will reduce my chocolate calories soon. But I have to get through this weekend first.

    I am super motivated to get back under 170. I am uncomfortable at 172; all my clothes are snug. And I want to look good for the summer, for the beach and the dating scene. I need some new dating clothes (tops with cleavage!). So I need to work for this and not throw away my progress for a twenty second taste of candy. I can do this - focus on my goal for May.

    Yesterday's chill and dreary weather left me lazy and craving comfort food, so I took a break from careful food choices and made a big pot of rigatoni with creamy homemade vodka sauce, some Italian sausages, and an antipasto salad. Then I ate too much, blowing past my calorie, sodium, carb, and fat limits. I even had a small glass of wine. Ah, well...it was just one meal, everyone enjoyed it, and I'm back on track today.

    Rain again, so it's the indoor bike and laundry today.

    Log - :)
    Balanced meals - No. Way over calorie and sodium limits, but I logged it all.

    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
    • 4.30.22 barely maintaining
    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
    • registered 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

    Weekly Weigh-In = When I'm active I eat back calories. My weaknesses: I love food... my sweet tooth, especially chocolate... portion control... FOMO (Fear of Missing Out). Saturday a.m. is my "official" weigh-in day, and I track daily on a separate app (helps me visualize). My digital scale only shows half pound increments & I'm too cheap to buy a fancier scale. No goal dates set ~ this is not a diet but my lifestyle.

    Age 64, 5'4" (have permanently lost half inch ~ bummer)
    GW #1: 150 in a livable way = It's. Not. A. Diet.
    GW #2: 145 normal BMI

    11/04 = 163.0 wow, really surprised at this, daily fluctuations very up and down this week

    05/12 = 153.5 ok with this ~ think changing my MFP setting, and having more net calories to play with, is agreeing with me ~ I'm not so hungry all the time

    My mother is eating chips and her chocolate candy for dinner. I can't watch! I can taste the chips but I know if I start I won't stop. They are likely stale anyway. But so tempting!

    Just for 'the rest' of today ...
    I will not mind-bash myself for overeating this afternoon. The too-full feeling is enough of a reminder so 'be still my shouting mind'.
