    @littleblackskirt - when I’m logging and staying within my calories I don’t limit anything. As soon as I do that I crave it even more. A 6” pizza is a better choice than a full one.


    @clicketykeys - hugs to you. You sound like your workplace is as bad as mine.

    @Bex953172 - there are online assessments. Did you know that ADHD in girls usually shows as anxiety and depression? There is a lot of information about it now. My daughter got diagnosed in 2020 and has been doing better since she was put on meds for it.
    She’s still has a way to go, but there is an improvement. She said the mental relief to know that she wasn’t just stupid, lazy, disorganized, etc helped tremendously and now she looks for tips online for how to manage a house, children and work as ADHD women.

    Well here it is another week and I haven’t maintained my goals. I’m just so down and stressed about work, I don’t Have a lot in me anymore.

    I know I've done the assessments 😂 and it's looking maybe likely. The only problem is because I have an underactive thyroid, if I go drs they're gonna say it's that first because I don't take my tablets right.

    So u til I get my thyroid under control and still have the same symptoms then I can't do much.
    But it's a catch 22 because I struggle to take the meds because I forget to take them, a sign of ADHD lol

    @Bex953172 How about sticking a reminder notice on the food cupboard in your kitchen, or setting an alarm on your phone for the same time each day, to remind you to take your meds? And when it goes off, take them immediately before you forget, even if you're busy with the kids. It's important to look after you too!

    @Snowflake1968 I'm sorry you are having such a hard time at work. I hope you find something better soon.

    JFT Tuesday 18th April

    Eat 3 sensible meals 2 good, evening meal was toasted cheese, was really late due to family stuff
    No more than one small snack one small one, getting better!
    Email roofer no, why do I hate doing this stuff so much?
    Turnip! now cooked and in freezer
    Cleaning plan didn't quite stick to it, but actually did more
    Weed front border yes

    My turnip cooking was a disaster. I had 2 big pots on the stove, and accidentally turned the wrong knob, so I thought I'd turned both down to a simmer but had only done one. Came back in to a pot of turnip completely burnt to the pot. I've never seen a pot so blackened! And of course it's my favourite one, I've had it since I got married 40 years ago and it wasn't new then...when things were made to last lol. It's my go-to pot for everything. I have it soaking with a load of biological washing powder in it, I'll do my best to clean it.

    JFT Wednesday 19th

    Eat 3 sensible meals
    Only one small snack
    Email roofer
    Sort house insurance
    Email management company

    I have a busy day today, and am meeting a friend for lunch. I seem to have found my oomph again this week!

    Man… on the struggle bus getting back into a flow. Was pretty fatigued up until yesterday. I think maybe residual from vacation? The power was out yesterday morning so all three of us got ready via candle light. Today is last day of work stretch then 6 days off. Thursday, Friday and Saturday already pretty full. I’ve got so many projects I want to get done but dang I just don’t want to do them.

    Goals for today
    Log all food
    Drink 12 or more glasses of water but do it earlier in the day 😂
    Shave … I’m looking homeless
    Stay under 2k calories
    No beer
    Take bike hitch off car tonight
    Phone calls before 930
    No workout … today’s a test day and I’m gonna try to catch the last leg of Teigan’s meet after work

    I got to bible study and the food was buttered rice, chicken pot pie, green beans with bacon and vinegar (you could see the floating oil - tasty but not exactly a healthy side), and key lime pie. Limiting calories wasn't really an option until I didn't eat. Also, I ended up eating M&M's that my daughter didn't want, popcorn, etc. Just not a great food choice day. Surprisingly, not as far off track as I feared by the end of the day.... but definitely not my best either.

    @pridesabtch Love the photo. Hope the headache is fully gone today.

    @littleblackskirt I hope the pot is salvageable.

    JFT Tuesday
    - Feel better
    - Drink water
    - Do hair
    - Eat reasonably

    Yesterday was not great, but not awful. I didn't binge after work, but I did eat a sandwich while waiting for dinner. Then Tim made queso so I had chips with it. After that I helped V touch up her roots, she said I messed up, but I haven't seen it yet. I never claimed to be a hair dresser and I went to sleep before she got out of the shower. I'm just so dang tired. I go to bed early and still can barely get out of bed in the mornings. Tonight I do my CPR recertification. Finished the online portion yesterday, it was much longer than I expected. It took some people over 3 hours to complete. I got lucky and was able to test out of more than half of it so I got through in a little over an hour. I was first CPR certified in 8th grade, and have pretty much had an active CPR/First Aid certification since college when I volunteered on the ambulance. The last few years I had let is slip since I wasn't teaching, but now that I'm back in spin class I needed to recertify. There are some new acronyms and a few things I couldn't quite remember such as how far back you tilt the head, but all in all I did well passing all of the practical scenarios with 100%. Tonight we do a 3 hour (6-9) class room portion. Not really looking forward to that.

    JFT Wednesday

    I try but I hit snooze on the reminder cause I think "right do that in a min." Then instantly forget 😂
    I have found the bathroom shelf Infront of the sink to be helpful though. Might put them all there.

    Also, for the pot, try dissolving a dishwasher tablet in it with boiling water and leave it to soak if the bio doesn't work x

    Eat 3 sensible meals 2, as I had lunch out I just had a yoghurt in the evening
    Only one small snack one
    Email roofer yes, made myself do it
    Sort house insurance yes
    Email management company no, I've decided not to reply at all, if I say what I think it will cause problems and for my own reasons I want to keep everything calm at the moment

    I have a busy day today, and am meeting a friend for lunch. I seem to have found my oomph again this week! Lovely visit to the garden centre, and I didn't buy a thing! Apart from lunch

    JFT Thursday 20th April

    Eat 3 sensible meals
    Only one small snack
    Laundry
    Grocery shopping
    Work in garden

    I have loads to do in the garden creating a new flower bed. It's really hard work, the soil is full of roots from the tree and shrubs which have been removed. It's no fun at all trying to dig holes. I managed an hour last night but had to stop as my back was so sore. And my son broke my faithful old garden fork...it's one of those weeks, what will the third breakage be? :)

    Oh yeah the kitchens done! Well the cupboards, countertops and sink/oven are all back in.
    I will send photos but although the kitchen is done, it's kind of not done at the same time. Like it looks good, the difference is noticeable.
    But it still needs repainting and still needs the floors and tiling done.
    And it's just them little things that REALLY bring it together.

    So because the floor and the tiles still look old and worn, it's not exactly complimenting the new stuff. So I will send you all a pic when the WHOLE thing is done.

    Plus, I've already started using the wine/bottle shelf as little "doom holes" to fill with my clutter so best clean them out too and put some actual drinks in there 😂😂

    My kitchen is in the demo phase...there's a layer of dust over everything, despite my contractor's best efforts to tape off the kitchen...to be expected, but it's gross to live in. ;) Tile arrived yesterday, phew!! Also the new dishwasher is ready and waiting...between construction and my very stressful job my health goals keep getting pushed aside, although at least yesterday I managed to eat a big salad and didn't have any alcohol. Small victories!

    13. Therapy thoughts: Achieving fitness goals is especially difficult when snacking is apparently the only effective, inexpensive, convenient de-stresser and I'm stressed almost all the time. Progress: Work on reflecting on progress. Regressive behavior is now minimal. ASK about what's scary about the room. About what else in her life (now or previously) is/was like that. Normalize putting the blankets away EVERY MORNING. Then move to doing it FIRST, along with getting dressed. What do I do about the fact that nothing really seems fun? "Having fun" is something of a chore. I need to talk to my parents about end-of-life plans (particularly funeral arrangements) and I'm not sure how to go about it. I do somewhat trust that they are capable of deciding when they need assisted living but should probably offer help in finding out what sort of place would be best BEFORE it actually becomes necessary.

    14. Just for fun: Start sketching dragon on a pile of books, offering one to the armored knight, & banner that reads "Treasure should not be hoarded / It should be shared."

    WFTY: Priorities. So many things. So many things. I'm SURE I'm forgetting something. I couldn't find the time sheet that I meant to turn in on Tuesday and now I need to fill it out again and get the PDF signed and scanned back to me and that's just SO frustrating!
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence. 2022 WFTY: Focus.

    @Snowflake1968 @Bex953172 - IME girls are also much more heavily socialized to be compliant, so boys' ADHD-related behavior is much more noticeable. I've got an appointment for testing, but they can't see me until AUGUST. I don't tend to have much physical hyperactivity, but recently I saw something about incessant mental chatter / "racing thoughts" and it caught my attention. I always thought that was just a "me" thing.

    I don't tend to think of myself as lazy, but I forget things VERY easily. I've developed strategies to help me keep track of my commitments, as following through on something I've said is incredibly important to me. And even then, it doesn't always work. I filled out my time sheet for tutoring on Monday and got it signed and I meant to scan it on Tuesday and send it in but then I couldn't find it, and that was incredibly upsetting for me.

    I also don't sleep through the night. I had a sleep study done a few years ago and they said "well no sleep apnea!" (which was obvious) but they did say that in addition to waking up fully several times, I came out of deep sleep a LOT, and was very restless. So I'm hoping that treatment for ADHD might allow my MIND to be more restful, which will allow me to get better sleep.

    CPR training took forever, but it was a good hands on class. I met some of the new younger instructors. They are me 17 years ago. Stay at home mom's teaching classes at the Y while there little ones go to child watch. Brought back good memories of close friends I made during those days.

    After CPR, Tim and I swung by B-Dubs to let the bartender there know there was an opening at the plant for a mechanic. He's been trying to get on here for a while, but opportunities are few and far between. Hopefully this works out for him. He is a great guy and a hard worker.

    Struggling big time to get up in the mornings again. Not sure if its thyroid related or not. When I put on weight, I often need an adjustment in dosage. Either way, I'm not doing well in the mornings. I almost called off today, but I have a standing staff meeting on Thursday mornings that I shouldn't miss. I still may take the afternoon off and go home, sleep & shower. Also can't forget to go to mom's to get bills today. May or may not feel like going to trivia tonight. V has a show, but we didn't get tickets for tonight. We do have tickets for tomorrow and Sunday. Sunday will be her last High School show, there will be tears...
