    I'm sharing a picture of my husband holding up the lap quilt I finally finished. It has 101 mistakes in it but I'm pretty excited because I did the quilting of it on my home machine this time and that's the first time I've done that. It was a learning experience for sure.

    Haha see! You're amazed at what I can crochet and I'm amazed at that quilt! I love it so much!

    Haha dya think people would buy them of Etsy? I wouldn't even know what price to sell them at.

    I would like to sell some crochet stuff but it's so time consuming making them
    That took me 4 days? Doing 30 mins to an hour each time.

    My teddy bear blanket had mistakes too, but only you will really notice them.

    When I gave it to my friend's daughter, her dad thought I'd bought it from the shop (until my friend asked me if I made it because she knows i crochet) and then he was like what you made that? You MADE that?!?
    Haha I was like yep. Haha it's so easy though but people get amazed.lol.

    I'm not good at taking compliments. I always feel awkward hahaha

    I did fifteen minutes of beginner cardio! Yay! I wasn't panting like I expected. My knee will be the limiting factor. That's okay as long as it gets stronger and not injured again. I'm excited! Yay!

    JFT Sunday
    1. No candy yes
    2. No cookies yes
    3. Eat under calorie limit yes
    4. Walk 30 mins yes
    5. Try some aerobic form of marching for a few minutes yes
    6. Dye my hair (from the other list) yes

    I did everything today! Yay! I had the same high calorie Sunday dinner but I walked 46 minutes to make up the calories. I have 9 left! So as long as I don't eat anything tonight, I'm good.

    It was a lot of walking especially after that aerobic marching. But my knee held up. Yay!

    JFT Monday
    1. No candy
    2. No cookies
    3. Eat under calorie limit
    4. Yoga
    5. Walk 30 mins
    6. Do something from the other list

    I'm going out to lunch Thursday so I need to eat at a deficit to make room for that. It will likely ruin Friday's weigh-in with sodium. Hmm.

    The weekend was a bit rubbish. Didn't log at all.
    But new week. New start.

    Log as I'm eating. That's the key for me. Because if I don't I forget. And trying to remember a whole days worth of food to log is very unappealing so I just don't do it.
    I've downloaded a 30 day challenge app. So going to try that out too! Think first one is lose belly fat. Could be a gimmick but it's still getting me to exercise either way!

    I think exercise is really what I need to do. My diet isn't spot on so need to get some movement going if I want to see any sort of results!

    Hope everyone's having a good day. Will post later with what I've achieved! Xx

    JFT M 5/16
    1) PT exercises before work :smiley:
    2) Move hourly / stairs breaks
    3) Supper? / net calories zero / 96 oz. water
    4) Keep going on GA-S testing & F&Ds / request PA-E&T 6 mo follow-up records / request records from financial analyst / set up Warehouse visit
    5) Unplug 9:00 / FLOSS / RETAINERS / Voltaren / pray & Calm / 5:45 alarm (walk dog before work)

    Sat. I was so active: walked dog 3.19 miles, spread wood chips (from neighbor two doors down, she got two loads free from area tree service) on rose garden & front mini-garden, along with hubby got out patio set, grill, etc. and set everything up, washed big pile o' dishes, packed up & put all Easter decoration boxes in basement. Realized marathon route surrounded church Sunday a.m. so just in time for online live Sat. evening service. After that I was completely tuckered out, so we ate take out from Olive Garden, and I zonked out on couch watching TV.

    Sun. was opposite of very active: watched CBS Sunday Morning, read, washed Easter decorative dishes, moved winter clothes to storage & put summer clothes in closet, depooped backyard. Then completely lazy day, not even 5K steps. Last night crap sleep, worrying about work deadline that I'm not likely to make next week. Couldn't get up early enough for dog walk today, but did PT instead.

    May Exercise Challenge:
    Goal 1: PT exercises 4-5 days per week
    Week 1: :smiley::smiley::smiley: {more dog walks instead}
    Week 2: :smiley::smiley::smiley:
    Week 3: :smiley:

    Goal 2: 3 mile dog walks, up to 5 days per week by end of May if knees permit
    Week 1: :smiley: 3.06 :smiley: 3.18 :) 1.61 w/ hubby :smiley: 3.06
    Week 2: :smiley: 3.25 before work yay :) 1.42 Fox Tails work hike :smiley: 3.06 :sunglasses: 3.19
    Week 3:

    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.

    My legs have very mild achiness this morning. So I think that mile of fast marching is about right. I'm going to do yoga and a gentle walk today, and try the fast marching again on Wednesday. And my dumbbells Tuesday night per usual. I do them every other day because my recovery time seems to be that slow. Maybe that will change.

    And I will weigh myself Thursday before I go out instead of Friday. I sneaked a peak today: down .8 since Friday! Yay!

    I'm slow to get moving today. There's a storm front coming in, so I'm likely to have a headache later. I better get up and do something!

    @Anniesquats100 I have problems with my knees also...one of them has bone-on-bone arthritis. So, I have a difficult time walking any distance and if I do manage to take a nice long walk, I'm usually down for the next day or two. So frustrating! You are doing really good! Keep 'er going! :)

    @Bex953172 I forgot to mention how darn cute you look in the photo with you holding the puppy! You are doing good, lady! <3 I don't know how much things go for on Etsy. But I'd sure love to get good enough at something to try selling something on there. LOL! My husband sells the wooden things he makes on there but it's just sporadically one here and there...

    @cschmitz110515 You got a lot done on your yard! You deserved a day of rest yesterday! Sure was a nice weekend for it. We planted tomatoes in container pots and flowers this weekend. Happy, Happy, Happy!
