"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.

    Started off the day really tired and needed to give the pooch a bath. She usually wakes me up around 4:00 to go out, but last night I didn't hear her bark. Clean-up this morning was totally on me. Came into work a bit early as I have a ton to do and need to leave early to take Gia to the vet. Just another round of puppy shots, but that gets her closer to going to live with Sierra. Hoping we can get her there by the 15th, but she has one shot due on the 18th. Of course nothing says she can't get that shot up in PA.

    Other than that, I feel more focused on health today. Probably because I had to buy intermediate business clothes yesterday. My cute new mediums are too tight and the XL's are too loose. I really don't want to get back into them, but at this rate that is where I'm headed.
    Positives:
    • I rode my bike for almost 2 hours Saturday, and it felt good.
    • I agreed to start teaching a weekly spin class instead of just subbing
    • Yeah, that may be it, but it's 2 more than before...

    Negatives:
    • I drink too much these days
    • I don't fit into my cute clothes
    • I'm tired all the time
    • I need to clean & tune up my bike
    • I'm wicked busy with V's senior year stuff, puppy duty and work

    One day at a time, right?
    JFT Monday
    - Work early
    - Protein bar for breakfast
    - Puppy duty at lunch
    - Maybe take a half day
    - Vet at 4:00
    - Shower
    - Remind hubby to buy flowers for V
    - Choir concert at 6:00
    - Leftover Mexican for dinner, skip the queso if I don't exercise
    - Bed by 10:30

    JFT Monday 8th May

    Think before you eat yes
    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green no, 17 cals over
    Back exercises no
    Housework just a bit, was interrupted by family calling in
    Paperwork yes

    Heavy rain today so going to catch up with things inside. Lots of paperwork to do, yuck.

    I was over a bit last night so I went out for a short walk to boost my calories. Didn't walk far enough as I was still 17 over lol. Grandson was a horror when he was here, always worse when his father is here too. Today he's here on his own so it's going much better. Although the dog is being quite needy today!

    JFT 9th May

    Think before you eat
    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Grocery shopping
    Post card

    Yesterday the snack monster visited.
    I’ve been here before. Goal weight (or close to it) and some self destructive gene kicks in. It tells me a screw it… just eat what ever. You can forgive yourself and start tomorrow. This is for sure true but it’s the staying on task that gets me.
    I’ve got kind of a busy day at work… I’m addition to clinic scattered in also have to lead a meeting. Although it’s never as bad as I think I alway get stressed about it. It’s like I hold it all together till I get home but then wow when I get home. Firsy it’s always a struggle to get myself to workout after a 12 hr shift then after that snacks get me. I think I might try journalling tonight before I snack… maybe it’ll help me reset my goal? I see someone here will periodically set a hourly goal. Makes sense especially like for me I’m sure some of my eating is 100% stress/emotional etc and had nothing to do with need

    Todays goal
    2000k intake (or less)
    30 min or more tread mill after work
    Log food
    No beer
    10-14 glasses of water and log it
    No food after 9
    Try journalling after work… doesn’t have to be here can be in diary but try it

    - Work early :smiley:
    - Protein bar for breakfast :smiley:
    - Puppy duty at lunch :smiley:
    - Maybe take a half day :smiley:
    - Vet at 4:00 :smiley:
    - Shower :smiley:

    - Choir concert at 6:00 :smiley:
    - Leftover Mexican for dinner, skip the queso if I don't exercise :(
    - Bed by 10:30 :smiley:

    Well yesterday went well until dinner. We ended up going out for Mexican after the choir concert instead eating left over Mexican at home. Yeah, don't ask me why Tim picked Mexican... Anyway, we were driving separately and he ordered me a beer and got queso before I got there. On the up side I only had 1 beer and I was responsible with the chips & queso.

    Choir concert was surprisingly good. V had a solo and sang well, she was happy. Really that's all that matters right now. Healthy & happy are a good combination.

    Was going to try to squeeze in a bike ride this evening, but it looks like it's going to rain. Perhaps I could go to spin class or ride the dreaded Peleton... Honestly, with as tired as I've been lately, I really just want to go home and sleep. I'm sure I'll feel better if I do something physical or maybe I'll do laundry, it is piling up since I didn't work on it this weekend. Boy we wear a lot of clothes.

    JFT Tuesday,

    - Protein bar breakfast & lunch
    - Puppy at lunch
    - Meds for kid at lunch

    JFT 9th May
    Think before you eat yes
    Log everything yes
    Stay in the green yes
    Grocery shopping yes
    Post card yes
    Dog walk no, just threw ball in the garden

    Yesterday went fine, grandson was good, the weather improved so we could be outside most of the time. He doesn't play up when he's here on his own. In the evening I mowed the lawn, and then decided to have a drinking chocolate and a few crackers. I logged it, realised it would put me into the red, and...can you believe this...put the crackers back in the tin!
    Since 1st May I've been much more focussed, the idea of thinking before I put the food in my mouth is really helping. I even managed not to snack at all when grandson was here. I'm so close to my clothes looking much better on.

    JFT Wednesday 10th May

    Think before you eat
    Log everything
    Stay in the green
    Back exercises
    Housework, kitchen!

    Another rainy day. Really need to blitz the kitchen, it gets in a mess so quickly when I prefer to be outside.

    No food after 9💩
    Try journalling after work… doesn’t have to be here can be in diary but try i💩

    Rinse and repeat goals. Want to get it right. I think the afterwork snacking is the problem. I think the snack itself (skinny pop popcorn) Is a fine choice… it’s just I need to figure out a way to regulate my volume

    - Ride :smiley:
    - Bed :smiley:

    Yesterday was good. Was a little late for the club ride, but was able to catch up to the group. It was a nice mellow ride with old friends and new. I'm supposed to do a gravel ride today, but I don't have a gravel bike. The girls each have mountain bikes, but they are heavy. Tim has a gravel bike, but it's a little bigger than my bikes. He and I drive in the same seat position (legs are about the same, but his torso is much longer than mine). I figured I give his bike a try as it's a sweet carbon bike. The bike was a little too tall, but the real issue was the reach. At first I was unsteady, but I adapted after a while. Gravel still makes me nervous, but you need to try new things from time to time, right? Still I'm nervous, but I'm going with a good friend who is patient, and a new rider. Should be fun even if my nerves are rattled.

    Other than that, it's work and puppy duty. If I finish the ride early enough I may go to trivia, but it's more likely that the gravel group will grab dinner. As of late, I need to get to bed early. I'm just too tanked if I don't.

    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. I don't feel as miserable as I did yesterday. I guess that's not nothing.
    2020 WFTY: Progress. 2021 WFTY: Persistence. 2022 WFTY: Focus.
