    Hour commitment - I won't eat again until after 5 pm. None of the same foods at dinner as at lunch.
    Had my dessert at lunch, so no more desserts today! Can still have my dose of metamusal.

    @teigansdad Welcome back, you know this is a very supportive group to share with. Sorry for your troubles, hopefully things start getting better for you.

    Regarding our "ghost" stories: I was discussing with hubby, and he reminded me that when he "bumped into" someone in the dark he thought was me, he felt skin on skin, dropped the clean laundry he was carrying, and asked "what are you doing up?" That's when I asked him, from bed, "who are you talking you?" LOL good times at night in our house. We haven't had any more experiences lately, other than the garage door & that's fine now. :smiley:

    OMG... I think I missed about a week, and I am 56 posts behind!!!
    I have been super busy with not only sewing a quilt for my grandson.. but garden work. Last week I had 6 yds of compost delivered (that is equivalent to 150 bags!!). I hauled it all in the backyard and spread among all my flower beds. Ha. needless to say, I hurt for 3 days after! Its funny how I did not feel sore when I was doing it... but boy, the next 3 days I paid for it. Finally back to normal I think.
    That, and sewing my grandson 2 quilts for his high school graduation. Actually its more like 3 quilts.. because one will be reversible. I have the tshirt quilt finished.. the other is sports related, since he loves sports. So one side is footballs with KC chiefs fabric (his favorite team), and the other side is a lot of footballs .. with Michigan Wolverines fabric (he is from michigan). But ... ha.. I had to sew 45 football squares! I now have both sides almost finished piecing.. its just pinning them and FMQ them... and hope both sides look OK with i'm done.
    I had a week of doing really good .. keeping my calories near 1400 a day.. and actually the scale went down close to 2 pounds. But being so busy.. I did not take time to log my food.. and now I am up again. So... back to goal setting and logging my food!!
    Happy to be back though... and tonite I'll try and read through all the posts I missed!

    Welcome.back @teigansdad although sorry to hear about the time you've been having!
    Atleast you have a very good reason for things doing downhill.

    I've put more weight on out of pure laziness, I think if I broke my hand and shoulder I'd give myself some slack!

    Well yesterday didn’t go as planned. Did good till I got home. Just didn’t have it in me to do the trainer and next thing I knew two beers went bye with a few handfuls of nuts and boom caloric goal shot too.
    I will say I totally let myself. I’ve let work drama consume me even on my days off. As I type this out though a part of me thinks maybe that’s just a excuse to be self destructive… dang now IDK
    Anyway deeps thoughts right 😂
    Goals for today
    Do better
    Stay under calories
    No beer
    Log everything
    No food after 8
    No more than 1 Diet Coke
    Get on trainer after work

    Let’s do this

    @teigansdad -- welcome back! So sorry you've had such troubles though .. but happy to see you back with us. Like you, I've let myself gain back almost all that I had lost.It is so easy. My problem is always around the holidays .. I love to bake, and this year we did more entertaining. Its funny how easy the pounds can come on, but how hard it is to take them back off!

    My goals for today will be my usual, but I've got to get back to tracking. When I am busy.. this is the first thing that I don't do. I love to exercise now, so that is easy. But, as we all know.. exercise is only 10%... its 90% what we eat. And I tell myself I am so active.. do so much garden work, that I am OK.. but I know I am eating too much to maintain this high weight. Its that little bag of trail mix, handful of raisins, eating a piece of bread, popcorn, etc that puts me over. I eat 3 healthy meals... no need to mindless grab this stuff!

    So goals today, March 7
    1. log all food. Try to keep calorie count around 1400 calories (I am 73, and 5'11"). But maybe at my age that is still too much? I don't know.
    2. concentrate on water. Especially in the evenings... I am NOT hungry after eating a big dinner. It is thirst.. which is easily mistaken for hunger. So drink 4 large glasses of water first
    3. work on quilt for grandson
    4. laundry/clean house, etc.
    My weight history
    Name is Joan. Age 73; 5'11"

    SW Year 2023: 207.8 - got my weight down to 195; I always gain again between halloween and New Years.

    Took some meds and took a nap yesterday when I got home from work. Awoke feeling so-so and let hubby convince me to go to trivia. Boy did we lose badly last night! Still fun, but woke up this morning in worse shape than yesterday. Dragged my bum into work, but still took my meetings remotely to avoid hacking and spitting in a room full of people. Pretty sure the cold is a pretty bad sinus infection at this point, and it doesn't seem to want to go away. I'm starting to think I may need to go to doc and see if I can get some meds.

    Supposed to go to mom's after work today and then drive to meet Sierra halfway and pick up the grand puppy. Will definitely go to mom's, even though she can't be bothered to return my texts. May let Tim go get Gia without me and rest. Leaving work early today as well, just want to make it through my last meeting at 1:00pm.

    Very late to post today but better late than never. Day went askew when I drove to our tax preparer's house. She and I were co-workers for 25(ish) years, and we're still good friends. Hubby didn't go, even though he really likes her, because he says "we talk too much". I think he's right: my noon meeting lasted until 3:45, and maybe 20 minutes was related to our taxes. :D Anyway, with a 30-minute drive each way, the entire afternoon was shot. No dog walk when I got back like I promised doggo, because weather has started to turn, and I'm just not up for it. Ooops. I'll post goals for today & tomorrow, as long as I'm online.

    Recap 3/6 W
    1) Soup supper at church: eat sensibly, limit bread & dessert :smiley: / log food (best guess) :smiley: / 64+ oz. water :/ only 48
    2) Walk dog :smiley: 3.68 mi happy dog & happy me
    3) Submit application for social security benefits (my full retirement age next month) ~ done & that feels so strange! / NP appt 1:00 / found old catalog for allergy-safe jewelry (I lost one of my favorite everyday earrings last night going to choir rehearsal) / read / declutter 15 min. / 5:30 soup supper / 7:00 Lent service / other? I decided to look for my lost earring in church parking lot on my way inside for supper. Parked near the space I thought, walked slowly searching the ground, and miraculously, spotted a small piece of silver that was my earring! No damage to hoop and happy me. :smiley: TA-DA!

    JFT 3/7 R
    1) Leftovers & side salad for supper / log all food / 64 oz. water
    2) Income tax docs to MJSW noon / read / scrub/refill heated birdbath :smiley: all done... maybe something else this evening?

    From yesterday
    Do better🙃
    Stay under calories✅
    No beer✅
    Log everything✅
    No food after 8✅
    No more than 1 Diet Coke✅
    Get on trainer after work❌

    Since changing to 12 hr shifts having the energy both mentally and physically to work out after work has been a huge problem.
    I’m sure I let this be an excuse to some extent but it has had a negative impact for sure. Maybe the time change will help a little

    Plan for today
    -same as yesterday but not gonna kid myself and say I’ll workouts 😂
    Do better
    Stay under calories
    No beer
    Log everything
    No food after 8
    No more than 1 Diet Coke

    Very late to post today but better late than never. Day went askew when I drove to our tax preparer's house. She and I were co-workers for 25(ish) years, and we're still good friends. Hubby didn't go, even though he really likes her, because he says "we talk too much". I think he's right: my noon meeting lasted until 3:45, and maybe 20 minutes was related to our taxes. :D Anyway, with a 30-minute drive each way, the entire afternoon was shot. No dog walk when I got back like I promised doggo, because weather has started to turn, and I'm just not up for it. Ooops. I'll post goals for today & tomorrow, as long as I'm online.

    Good friends are hard to come by. Catching up is important.

    Made it half a day at work yesterday, then went home to rest. Got up and went with hubby to pick up Gia and briefly visited with Sierra. Pretty much went to sleep as soon as we got home. Tim went out to pick up dinner, but by the time he got back I wasn't interested. Had a few chips on the way to get Gia, and a KitKat for lunch. Not a healthy food day, but well under calories.

    Pictures of my spoiled grand puppy. Tim said she has begun her Jedi training. I think she'll be a dragon slayer when she grows up.

    Feeling a little better today, but now Tim has it. Hopefully we don't just pass it back and forth. I'm at work, but may only work a half day. Not much going on here. That and I'm working a Trade Show tomorrow at the state capital. It's only 1.5 hours away, but with driving, set-up, actual show, tear down and dinner with state representatives after it makes for a full day. Depending on how I feel I may skip the post show schmoozing.
