    @Anniesquats100 - your mothers dinner is one I would have. :)

    @nsk1951 - no sense in listening to that voice mind bashing.

    I had a great day, cleaned this morning. Ran to the store to get a set of curtains. Ended up buying 3 onesies for the grand baby due in December. I couldn’t resist.

    The afternoon was spent with my girls at ceramics. We came home from there and made homemade pizza while Kaitlyn called her grandparents and my brother to share her news.

    A great day!

    Tomorrow is sunday ... so officially starting over. I don't know what I have to do to get really serious. I'm listening to podcasts .. and I think it is my "self talk" that I need to work on. I am so upset with myself for gaining back what I had lost .. but this is not doing me any good. I need to focus on what I am doing, which is exercising. Instead of beating myself up for gaining weight, and looking at all the things I am doing wrong. Next week I will focus on the positives.
    So I'll start a new week... and vow to do better

    Yesterday was an odd day, mix of good and not so good. Ended by sitting on a bench throwing a ball for the dog, small pleasures.

    Today I have loads to do, so I'm just working through it. As long as some gets done I'm happy. A more positive day.

    I have yet another cold and a bit of a temperature. About to do a test but pretty sure it's just a cold.

    Will try to be sensible with diet, but son is coming for evening meal and there will be pasta and sticky toffee pudding. I'll get back to it tomorrow

    MAY Challenge

    Well I walked to make up my lunch calories, but then I was hungry again. I had a yogurt so now I'm 107 in the hole. Better than chocolate or cookies. Sundays are always hard for me. But I won't let it get any worse.

    Can't figure out what is wrong with my app, it just won't let me post pictures. The weekend was good. V was a little slow getting ready, so I didn't get pictures at the venues I had hoped. I added some pics in the spoiler now that I'm on my laptop.

    Mother's Day was largely spent trying to fix a water leak at my mom's place. SO no ride for me. Food was all take out or eating out...

    Not much planned for today. It's supposed to be nice out. I'm toying with the thought of a half day and a bike ride, but it kind of depends on what the morning meetings bring.

    JFT Monday

    No time to post JFT yesterday. But I did PT exercises early, 9:00 church, washed dishes yay, then drove with hubby to my parents house (3 hours total car time) to celebrate Mother's Day (US) with family. Got to visit with mom, dad, sister & her hubby, all 3 brothers and their 2 wives, aunt and one niece. <3

    JFT M 5/9
    1) Walked dog 3.25 mi before work yay :sunglasses: happy dog & happy me
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    4) GA-S testing & F&Ds ~ hopefully good progress this week
    5) Hubby's youngest sister over for night / maybe visit botanical garden? / not sure of supper
    6) Ta-da's if time: renew botanical garden membership / schedule cc pmts / Cancer Prevention Study new portal / PT updates on medical portal / healthcare benefit stmts / balance bank accts / budget s/s
    7) Unplug 9:00 / floss / retainers / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 6:00 alarm (PT exercises before work & DDS appt)

    For the first time since last December, I walked dog 3+ miles before work this morning. Yay! Saw a young bald eagle in a tree, several sandhill cranes in flight, several bunnies & heard lots of birds singing. Happy dog & happy me!

    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

    Hour commitment - Going to eat lunch early today since I have to leave before 12pm for several hours. I could wait and eat at a restaurant or pack something and eat in my car, but I prefer eating my own stuff for lunch at home.

    Now I won't eat again until after 5 pm. None of the same foods at dinner as at lunch.
