    @beachwalker99 - I love when I get one on one time with one of the grandchildren. Sunday I am going with my eldest and her children to see an “adopted” daughter her newborn and her son that is my Grandsons age. We are meeting at my youngest daughters. The adopted daughter is her best friend.

    @Anniesquats100 - my Dad and DH used to say that I only cooked if it came from a box. It’s not that I couldn’t/can’t cook. It’s that I really dislike it.

    You did great storing calories this week.

    @pridesabtch - @Bex953172 said everything I was thinking about Sierra. My niece suffered with depression terribly through her first year of university this past year too. Like Sierra she knew to reach out. I think it’s much easier for people to reach out now than it used to be. I don’t know about in the States here the only problem is the cost and lack of therapists are hard to come by in some areas.

    Wednesday night I got home too late from my This is Us date to post and last night I had ceramics and didn’t. I have been keeping my goals in my head even in the days I don’t post and I think that helps.

    I am not back to work until Tuesday and have plans right through until Monday. I’m looking forward to them.

    Tomorrow am meeting a former supervisor and a coworker for lunch.

    Sunday I am going with my eldest daughter and grandson to my youngest daughters. We are meeting YD’s best friend and her children. Her son and my grandson are the same age. She has a newborn that is 6 weeks.

    Well, I couldn't stay away from the scale, and it's up three pounds! Most of that should rinse away.

    Yes definitely, don't be discouraged!! You've been doing great and that will show!

    @Bex953172 thanks for the encouragement!

    @Snowflake1968 lol! I don't like daily cooking much either. My parents like their food bland and simple so there's very little creativity involved.

    JFT Saturday
    1. No candy yes
    2. No cookies yes
    3. Eat under calorie limit yes
    4. Dumbbells 40 reps yes
    5. Clean my desk started

    I did well with diet and exercise today. I was a little hungry, mostly just bored, and I started reading a book instead of eating. Yay!

    My mother said she won't go to her memory evaluation medical appointment. It took me months to get that set up. The appointment is in early July so maybe I can persuade her again. But first I have to get over my anger. Without eating my feelings. One day at a time!

    JFT Sunday
    1. No candy
    2. No cookies
    3. Eat under calorie limit
    4. Day of rest - no exercise
    5. Work on cleaning my room

    Well, I hit my exercise goal this week by working in the garden most of Friday and cleaning and setting up the deck furniture today. My daughter brought the boys over to swim and picked up Mexican takeout on the way. It was a relief not to cook. I got a relatively healthy fajita bowl, ate half for lunch, and saved the rest for dinner. I'm not even going to bother trying to log it.

    The weather's been so odd this Spring. It hit 90 this afternoon and we're expecting the same tomorrow with thunderstorms cooling things down again in the evening. I'm leaving all my grading for tomorrow evening, so hopefully we won't lose power.

    Well I'm beat. Goals in the morning, maybe.

    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 B) 40 B) 48 -- 4/5
    Week 3: B) 57 :) 56 B) 69 X X B) 120 B) 60 --5/5
    Goal 2: 24 total hours of exercise for the month
    TTD: 867 min. (14.45 hr.)

    @Anniesquats100 - I am a very simple eater as well your parents and I would probably get along well. 😂
    I have learned with my Mother and others that had memory issues not to discuss anything that’s happening until the day it happens. It helps reduce stress and tension. By the time the appointment day comes just say Mom you have an spoon today let’s get dressed and I’ll take you. Unfortunately it’s getting to the point that you need to be firm for her own good. Just like you would for a child.

    I went out for my lunch today and ate way too much. We sat in Olive Garden for 4 hours. It was a nice day.

    JFT Sunday
    1. No candy yes
    2. No cookies yes
    3. Eat under calorie limit yes
    4. Day of rest - no exercise yes
    5. Work on cleaning my room no

    Again, doing well on the diet and exercise, not so well on the other chores. It worked out really well to have the new lower calorie faux ice cream for Sunday dinner. That left me enough for a yogurt and some canteloupe later on. Yay!

    As far as my mom's memory evaluation appointment, I'm going to postpone it. That's a middle road between cancelling and forcing the issue.

    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

    Didn't log much over the weekend, but I did exercise Saturday. Okay I did a hard 16 mile bike ride, followed by a more relaxed 24 mile Pub ride. It was 40 mile total on the day with beer and deep fried goodness as we finished up. I think we hit 5 pubs on our ride. I'm not much of a craft beer person so I mostly just did tasters after getting a beer I didn't like at the first pub. All in all it was a great day with great people including my hubby. Sunday I wasn't feeling great so after church I just kind of watched hockey and dozed. There was a church picnic, but we baled on that which means we have a very large fruit salad to eat this week. Luckily it has very little other than fruit. The only additives are a 1/4cup of OJ & a 1/4 cup of honey, but for the size of the bowl, that isn't much.

    Almost forgot that I am covering Sarah's cycling class tomorrow. Kind of a bummer as its a club ride day and I've been trying to get back into that. Oh well, its movement and a really good workout. Shorter but more intense than the club ride I do.

    Sierra is driving me a bit crazy already. The child never relaxes. It's great in that my flower beds are weeded and the bushes are trimmed and the yard is mowed and the kitchen is cleaned, but I feel like anytime I sit down and chill I'm being judged. Luckily she starts working today, so she'll have an outlet for some of her energy. She cleaned V's room as a birthday gift, and V has already let it go to hell in a handbasket. I think after work/school today she and I are going to work on it some more. The child has got to learn to be responsible. She does great in every other facet, but her room is atrocious.

    Anyway...

    JFT Monday
    - Early meeting :smiley: (took it at home)
    - Pack some fruit salad :smiley: -
    - Work by 8:00 :smiley:
    - Work stuff
    - Home at 4:30
    - Work on V's room with her
    - Put away laundry
    - Have V sort through her laundry and thin out the stuff she doesn't wear. The child has more clothes than she knows what to do with. She went through this process with her shoes. There is a brand new pair of Converse (with tags) that she no longer wants. Ughhhh... I don't even think she remembered she had them.
    - Watch hockey and eat leftover pizza for dinner
    - No alcohol
    - Bed by 11:30 (though lately its more like 9:00)

    Have a delightful Monday y'all!
