    Still no meds, but trying to do what I can in the mean time. I am still losing weight, which is crazy, but I will take it! I am employing what I learned before from years of tracking--low-carb is a must for me. New motto: no grains=no pain! Also no sugar, except for 1 serving fruit per day. In the past I have aimed for under 100G or 75G carbs per day, but if I can go lower, that will be better. At this point I just have to lose as fast as possible.

    JFT for Monday 5-16:
    1. Eat breakfast/take morning pills
    2. No grains or sugar
    3. Track food
    4. Track exercise
    5. Take a gentle walk (should stop raining today)
    6. 8 C water
    7. No caffeine after noon
    8. 8000 steps
    9. 5+ freggies
    10. Keep working on improving sleep...got a Fitbit sleep score of 80 for the first time ever last night!

    I had goals over the weekend, but didn't write them down. Saturday they revolved around house cleaning, which I got done. Sunday I skipped church to watch my girl row on ESPN+. It was cool seeing her on TV I actually took pictures of the TV my younger daughter found that hilarious. After the races I went an bought some new plant stands for outside then went to the local farm/greenhouse and bought some baskets of flowers for outside. Once Tim and I finished that, we went for a bike ride. That pretty well sums up the weekend, food was iffy, but the weekend was good.

    Today I have to audit ALLLLLL day long. It's lunch time now. I grabbed a healthy bag of Cheez-its (lol) and thought I'd check in. After work if it stops raining I may do some yard work if it is raining maybe I'll clean the floors downstairs (that was on hubby's weekend list, but he wasn't feeling great).

    JFT Monday (blah...)
    - Up at 6:30 :wink: more like 6:45, but it was okay
    - Weigh :smiley:
    - Work by 7:30 :smiley:
    - Audit
    - Lunch
    - Audit
    - home
    - laundry/clean/yard work
    - maybe go to spin class
    - no alcohol
    - bed by 11:30

    Happy Monday y'all

    So far so good today! Had my dinner. Kinda of good job I had a late breakfast. Cause it meant I skipped lunch and so I have enough calories now for the day. Got 380 left (Including calories burnt).

    Although I'm going to try not snack tonight. I really need to swap it for something healthy.

    Well I'm out of salad so I skipped it on today's list, but I just ate broccoli instead. Yay for veggies! So I'm done eating for today.

    We are expecting a severe thunderstorm at my parents' dinnertime. Hope the power stays on! Otherwise it's peanut butter sandwiches for dinner.

    The storm seems to have missed us entirely! We get the Philadelphia forecasts which aren't always right for Delaware. Anyway the power is on.

    I have 271 calories left and the cookies are calling my name. But I want to save those calories for Thursday so I can have a big juicy hamburger and fries. I have to remember that thirty seconds of eating cookies is not worth the mental anguish of missing my goals. They are like icebergs - you try to excuse the first cookie, but there are seven more you don't see coming, and those will sink my diet ship. Anyway, it won't hurt me to be a little hungry. I could always have more broccoli. Or an apple. Maybe later.

    I wonder if veggie egg rolls are nutritious. That sounds really good. I might look for them tomorrow.

    Dragging a bit today after staying up late to observe the lunar eclipse. We lucked out with the weather, so I sat outdoors enjoying the mild weather. It was quite a show! Thunderstorms rolled in this afternoon, so I settled for nearly an hour on the indoor bike.

    Summer classes have started this week, so I'm quite busy again. I haven't been making great food choices - leftover Chinese for lunch today and too many snacks again. I really should get back to logging and setting some daily goals. Maybe tomorrow.

    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 -- 6/5
    Week 2: X Rest day :) 70 B) 54 X X X B) 40 B) 48 -- 4/5
    Week 3 B) 57 :) 56
    Goal 2: 24 total hours of exercise for the month
    TTD: 618 min. (10.3 hr.)

    Happy Monday morning everyone!

    Last week was a bust, so back to try again. It's raining and windy and I'm coughing up my lungs!

    JFT Monday 16th May

    Stay under maintenance yes
    Only one snack 2
    Clean out fridge, plan healthy food reasonable food apart from snacks, didn't do fridge
    Walk 34 mins, cut it short as the rain started just after I went out
    Paperwork/bills/emails yes
    Housework some
    Ironing done half

    It's just after lunchtime and I've done almost nothing so far. Every night I think about what I'm going to accomplish the next day, but come the next day I only do the urgent stuff. Today I'd planned to drive into town and get a few plants at the garden centre, then take some lunch down to the beach. Even when it's still cold I can eat in the car. But I just didn't go. I don't know how to get some enthusiasm back, I'm so tired all the time.

    JFT Tuesday 17th

    Stay under maintenance
    Only one snack
    Walk
    Do something, anything!

    May Challenge
    Week 1 180/150
    Week 2 0/150
    Week 3 34 /150

    @Anniesquats100

    Just wanted to say you're doing so well with the no candy/cookies! It's always hard to cut out your favourite foods but you're smashing it!
    Keep it up!!
    And enjoy your burger and fries on Thursday! Safe to say you've earned it!!

    @Bex953172 thanks! I think my muffin top was built with candy and cookies!

    @littleblackskirt have you talked to a doctor about feeling so tired? Some treatable reasons that come to mind could be thyroid, depression, or misuse of caffeine, poor sleep, too much sugar/junk food, poor self dialog. There's lots more.

    If you hurt your ankle, you would dial back expectations. You can do the same for tiredness. Try to keep your goals reasonable, and go after the root of the problem. You can do this! You deserve to enjoy your life.

    @littleblackskirt Sorry you are feeling so tired. But I'm not surprised, you've had lots to deal with in the past months, very emotional times. (((hugs)))

    @azulvioleta6 Glad you have insight into your dietary needs to make up for missing meds. (((hug)))

    @beachwalker99 I missed the eclipse, too cloudy at start, and I just couldn't stay awake for the clouds to eventually clear. I wished it wasn't a "work night".

    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

    @azulvioleta6 yay! Glad you are getting your meds!

    I found a frozen bowl called "unwrapped egg roll" by evol. Still more calories than I wanted but also more protein. I'm surprised they used Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage. So I have that in the freezer for a veggie treat. I also got some lower calorie ice cream for Sunday dinner. Yay! It was a good grocery run.

    Next is a nap then I will at least make a stab at changing my tax withholding.
