After posting a green last night, I went to put away the leftovers from dinner and ate some lamb. Changing it to a fail. Minor though.

Hi, jenji! Has anyone else asked where you get those little icons? I am not very savvy about these things.

Looks like you've had a good run with No S so far. Here's to finishing 2017 strong and into 2018. Exclamation

Hi Oolala, if you post from your phone or ipad, you can use the emoji keyboards (if you have them there). You can also copy and paste my calendar and edit it for you. In the testing folder, I also have a January calendar up and ready.

I make the calendar at the beginning of the month, then copy and paste it with each day edited. Does that make sense?

Thanks for responding. It does make sense theoretically, but I have never been able to copy and paste any calendar from anywhere to anywhere on Everyday Systems. I do the steps, but it comes out mush, in essence.

Guess I just have to add icons as I go.

I'm too lazy to look back. Did I ask you what your non-profit is? Tx

Now I have to wrestle with shame because the high here today was in the mid-70's and I've been inside all day.

My non-profit recruits and oversees about 1,000 tutors and mentors who work in the public schools. I love the people I work with, but the fundraising aspect of it is often stressful (not enough money).

Wow, that's ambitious and impressive. But Lord knows most schools don't have the money for such endeavors. And it's laudable that the staff gets any pay, though I"m sure it's modest. I may at some point recover Embarassed from my teaching career enough to do some tutoring. It definitely is different working with individual or a smaller number of kids, even if they're not particularly enthusiastic. But I'd like to think I have something else in store for me, as it was more a practical decision to go into it, rather than a calling.

I did one yoga workout this weekend, on Friday. Other than that, my only exercise has been a couple long walks.

On Saturday we hit 10,000 steps, even though it was butt-cold. Sorry for cursing, but it's cursing-level cold outside in Massachusetts. Even the cat can't take it. My whole family bundled up in our puffy coats and face masks and walked to my friend's house near Harvard Square and back. It was a nice party.

After a week at home, I am feeling ready for my regular routine again.

I haven't been weighing myself - thought I would give it a few days so as not to freak myself out with holiday ups and downs. I will this weekend.

I did a little Shovelglove yesterday and today. Trying to add in listening to an audiobook to make it more enticing. I'm listening to Tiffany Haddish's book right now.

I've thought of visiting family in Lynn and asking Reinhard to lunch, though not for oatmeal. I figured he might do it because I would then be gone and not start stalking him. I've always admired that he didn't try to turn this into an empire, though honestly, I sometime wish he would.

Funny! There are a lot of cool people in my city, especially for someone like me who is a reader. I get to interact with some of my favorite authors, scientists, etc. The perks of living in a university town.

The downside is that we get things like bombocyclones and snow lightning storms. I’m a little envious of your weather, Oolala. Smile

I served myself a small dinner, because it was rich (included fondue). But I impulsively ate seconds of the rice and beans when clearing up. Then I stayed up late listening to an audiobook and working, and before I went to bed, I ate some yogurt and cereal. I am not too worried because it was a day of tough workouts of snow shoveling and walking a couple of miles in deep snow. Planning to stay green today.

Rich foods can mess with our expectations. It's so small! But we don't need much and yet it really does seem very common that when people start in on an S, they have more later. I often do the same thing, or did while I was going through my hiatus. Who knows why. I say it works to go cold turkey or just taper off. You'll know which when you try.

And it's great that you didn't turn it into WTH!

S day tomorrow...

Good news and bad news... the good news is that even on failure days, my lapses are small. I keep the habits most of the time. Also, I have worked several Shovelglove sessions into my routine this week, on top of walks and real snow shoveling.

Bad news is that yesterday was another fail. Baking c**kies β€œfor the kids”. πŸ˜‚ Oh well, back on the horse.

Other good news is that I weighed myself today and am down to 173.5

Tons of awesome!

I am in awe of people who can bake any sweets and not fail egregiously. One of the women on a Sparkteam I'm on, who used to weigh 220 and has stabilized at about 150 for a few years, plus was a binger, can do it. I feel like my even trying would be like the Wicked Witch of the West trying to touch the ruby slippers. (sorry if I've used that analogy here before. It's been in my mind and it's so accurate.)

I found out today, though, that she still has fears about certain foods. She said that strawberries and cream with a little sugar scared her. Something like that apparently even relatively recently could send her into a tailspin. I was thinking, "You can bake cookies but fear cream and sugar?" I don't mean to be nasty about it. It's one of the paradoxes we all have. I guess with the baking, she doesn't allow even one bite. And I'm finding now that small amounts of some foods are actually not very satisfying. I don't want just a little: I want a LOT. But I still mess with myself on that.

I doubt I'll ever get to be a baker again because there is no one in my life that I need to take such risks for. I don't enjoy most baked flour foods anymore as much as other starches. I'd rather get good at, say, making my own salad dressings that I like as much as Annie's Green Goddess. If there were kids involved, I doubt they'd get excited about that. Rolling Eyes

But am I in the kitchen experimenting? I am not!

Have a great weekend.

Oh, Fridays were tough for me at one point. I used to make a Bisquick biscuit and eat it with strawberries, a whoosh of stevia, and plain yogurt. I could have had it every day, theoretically, but saved it for Fridays so I would feel like I was celebrating the end of the workweek while staying compliant.

I am also trying to come up with a compliant treat for Friday. Some Fridays I've have one small glass of white wine to relax before bed and enjoyed it. However, I've found that if I have that wine while out and about, such as at a party, I am more likely to eat again later. It only works as my final sip of the day while sitting on my couch.

I don't think I should bake unless I have people at home to eat it. I make a half batch of c**kie batter, then freeze half, leaving me with a quarter batch to cook. That puts automatic controls on portions.

Green day today. Full plates, but still green. I just had steak and black bean tacos for dinner. I ate my lunch in two sittings, because I got interrupted, but it was only one plate. No exercise yet, but I am hoping to finish a grant request tonight and then do 15 minutes of SG or weights.

Stressful day, but green. I love when I can prove to myself that scary and hectic work events do not have to change my eating in any substantive way. I did not get lunch until 2:45, but I had a little juice at 1:00 to tide my over. Sushi for lunch and dinner: supermarket sushi roll for lunch and real sushi dinner tonight with my kid.

Wednesday = Green. I'm at 174# again, recovered from the holidays.
I walked to work today because parking has been nutty with the snow.

You motivated me to feel I could do it. So far so good. I am roasting a butterflied leg of lamb right now (which will be several meals for us).

I wish we had an icon for clapping hands. I am a tech klutz when it comes to finding ones on the net and using them in my own posts.

176 this morning. Going for another green week. Today is a holiday, so I am home from work. Started the morning with a nice brekkie of scrambled egg, some leftover refried black beans, and an orange. Plus I made myself a latte.

Oh, and I'm re-reading the book. Smile

If the habits don't just come with no sweat, it doesn't hurt to do some "bible study."

* Update - made it! Also, I walked 4 miles today, around the city, because I loaned my car to my main squeeze.

Wed = green
173.5 today
When I started No S, I decided to allow myself the mod of eating an apple between meals. I was eating an apple between meals or after dinner quite often, 1-2 a day. Now that my appetite is tamed a bit, I am trying to skip the apple and just power through to the meals (which might include fruit) or go to bed. I still don't consider it a red day if I have one, but I am just seeing if I can keep eating to meals.

I call using something like the apple β€œeasing in”
to the habit. Reinhard says the hardest thing about having something like an Apple is that then people might fill their plates with something else more dense because they feel they’ve gotten their fruit quota in. But you sound very realistic.

I've been eating a lot of chocolate covered almonds this weekend. I have enjoyed my treats.

You're doing so well. I'm similar height and age but about 20 lbs heavier than you so your success is extra inspiring Smile
