    Good morning! Our windows are open and I can hear the birds chirping like crazy today. It is music to my ears after a long winter of being mostly indoors. The lady across the street has a beautiful yard with magnolia trees blooming (pink and white), daffodils, tulips, crabapple trees...so green and lush. It's definitely spring in Wisconsin finally! :smiley: I've noticed a huge difference in my mood...much more positive and more myself. I definitely get a touch of the seasonal depression and it feels wonderful to feel it lifting. We've been outside weeding the flower beds and getting them ready to plant. I've been watching YouTube video on container gardening. I would like to do some canning this year. I've canned tomatoes in the past and hated every minute of it, so we'll see how far I get with that! LOL :mrgreen:

    Have a wonderful day everyone! I'm cheering you on!

    Just for Wednesday / 5-11-22

    Stayed up until 3 a.m. grading papers last night. I'm feeling wiped out today, so I'm not really up for goals. Kicked off my summer classes today (a week ahead of schedule) so my early college high school kids can finish the 6-week research course by the time their regular high school classes end. The class went well, but all I want is a nap. I'll try to get some exercise in this evening, but I might wind up burning another rest day.

    Recap - Tuesday 5/10 Keeping it simple this week
    Log - Logged all day and then had some extra snacks to power through the hours after midnight.
    Balanced meals - Meals were goo, but should have skipped the snacks.
    Hydrate - :)
    Exercise - :) 54 min walk in the park
    Grading - :)

    JFT Wednesday
    Nap
    Exercise
    Grade more papers

    May challenge
    Goal 1: 30+ min of exercise at least 5 days per week (tracked weekly)
    Week 1: B) 51 :) 30 B) 72 B) 60 B) 35 X Rest day :) 45 -- 5/5
    Week 2: X Rest day :) 70 B) 54
    Goal 2: 24 total hours of exercise for the month

    Well I was hungry and had enough calories left for some candy, but instead I had a yogurt and some cantaloupe. Yay! I beat the sugar trap! I know I would have eaten way more candy than I should have.

    So the only thing left is do something from my other list, and the most urgent thing is to edit a story that a friend sent to me. For some reason, I have put this off for a couple weeks. But it gets done tonight!

    1. log all food
    2. concentrate on water
    3. work on quilt
    4. clean house
    5. laundry .. can't do until we get our new washer .. ours broke!
    6. find prediabetic recipes and plan
    Hubby and I had our bloodtests .. both of us came back as prediabtic! My numbers were 5.9, his were 5.7. I do not want to get diabetes.. so this is now my reason to eat healthy. (If you are over 6.0 you have diabetes ..so I am close!) Forget about looking good ... I just want to be as healthy as I can, and with both of us this way ... I'll have to learn a new way of cooking.
    Actually ... from my reading, its just eating the way I ate when I lost 30 pounds. So this should get me back on track if nothing else does.
    So tonite I made some brown rice .. I had 1 meatball, he had 3, made some kidney beans and peas.
    Anyone know of good websites for super good recipes? I found the mayo clinic, and another one.. but have to search some more tonite on what we can and can't eat.
    It is amazing when I look at my past results from blood tests .. the 3 years after I lost weight, and kept the weight off, my numbers were all so much lower. I know being a healthy weight will make all the difference.

    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.

    Okay so I was over on calories again. I did snack last night bit didn't OVER snack. There were things I wanted to eat but decided not to eat. No snacks would have been better but I should have pre-prepped some healthier snacks tbh. I know I snack at bedtime. I know I'm gonna do it. But if I replace the bad stuff with good stuff then it's more damage limitation 😂

    I'm proud of myself though, because at dinner I made spaghetti Bolognese. If I didnt switch out the pasta for salad then I would have been waaaaay over.

    I don't think I'm gonna post goals. But I'm gonna post and just say what I've achieved for the day and where I could improve. Gotta keep trying different tactics
