Day 87 Old Habits


Changing my habits is a big part of trying to be healthier and fitter. For me it is more lack of habits and routines than bad habits.

1. Make a list of habits that have caused you trouble in the past.

-Celebrating (family get-togethers, special events like championship celebrations) with food, but not just enjoying tasty food, eating way too much.
-Not getting back on track quickly after eating too much.
-


2. Add a list of people or events that you associate with food or eating.

-My regular Thursday lunches with friends at the mall, where even though I bring healthy food, I eat too much
- Family celebrations at my sister's house because she always puts on a very delicious spread.


3.Write down a few ideas about how you can avoid slipping back into old habits.

Be mindful - keep my eye on the prize...a fit and svelte body.
Plan what I am going to eat ahead of time, at least the day before, and stick to the plan.
Have non-food rewards for special events and accomplishments.
Stick to intermittent fasting, not snacking, and getting enough water every day.

June -- Pacific Time Zone
Where you end up is more important than how fast or where you start out.
- Improved fitness and nutrition, energy and confidence are my rewards.
It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
A PH (personal high) is the main goal, a PB is the sometime icing on the cake.
Never underestimate the inevitability of gradualness.
Sopra le nebbie delle valle e le vicende della vita sorge una promessa di luce e serenita.

Day #87 Old Habits
It is no doubt that the reason I spent many years on or off a diet, losing weight and gaining it back was because of going back to old habits.

It was only after realizing that in order to keep weight off I needed to make a lifestyle change to stop that way of living. There is still a struggle with all the available temptations but it gets easier and easier.

DAY #87 OLD HABITS

I see myself in so many of these lessons! Today I am reminded -

Oh, how many times have we regained in the past? Are we at risk again? With holiday goodies looming around every corner, December can be a real test of fortitude as our lesson points out -

Right now you may feel totally confident that "this time" you will never gain back your weight. Unfortunately you still have to deal with the same issues that have always hurt your enthusiasm in the past. Plus, a few of your old habits probably haven't completely disappeared, and some of them may look appealing again very soon.

We have learned that our old habits provide us with a feeling of safety and comfort and I have experienced this several times. Losing weight is a lot of hard work; change is hard work; no one likes change; we like the comfort of the "familiar". When the stresses of life start to get hard too it is just easier to tell myself that I need a break and I find myself giving into my old habits. A little slip here and a little slip there until I am right back where I started.

I DO NOT WANT TO KEEP DOING THIS TO MYSELF!

To prevent slipping back into your old habits, you have to break the patterns that got you into them in the 1st place. Begin with identifying times when you eat strictly out of habit, then decide how you could change your routine and create new patterns.

Are there certain times you always associate with food? Certain people? Certain events? Look for ways to shake things up.

- In your notebook, make a list of habits that have caused you trouble in the past.

* Not have meal plans
* Letting others influence my eating behaviors
* Trying to get too many things done in a day (poor time management)
* Restaurant eating & drinking

~ Write a few sentences about how you can avoid slipping back into these old habits.

* Make menu plans out in advance
* Make you decisions about food/drink and eating then stick to your decision
* Keep my "To Do" list limited to 5 items
* Limit my desire to forego cooking at home to 1 x per week

I think it might be a good idea to ask myself before I make a decision/choice - Is this an Old Habit you need to get rid of?

1. Make a list of habits that have caused you trouble in the past.

I used to graze the kitchen between meals with no regard for whether I was hungry or not. Also, not having a lunch plan leads me to eating too much food and too much junk.

2. Add a list of people or events that you associate with food or eating.

My 20 year old son. It's easy to relate to him thru eating.

3.Write down a few ideas about how you can avoid slipping back into old habits.

Having my meals planned has helped prevent grazing. Having my son move to college has minimized eating with him. When he's home on breaks, I can plan my food to be healther and less junk food. I was impressed that Gill had yogurt & blueberries while others were eating ice cream a few days ago.

I'm so glad that the Barbara Berkeley article helped you, Paula. I find any alcohol makes me hungry - for me I think it's the sugar/insulin effect it has on the blood. I also got for those dry, crunchy snacks if I get desperate - for me it's usually savoury, but still the same kind of mouth sensation as dry Chex cereal. Crunchy - what emotion is that - Head Hunger? Remember that?

The two big habits that have caused me trouble in the past are drinking wine before dinner almost every night, and then going way over my range with out-of-control night-time eating. Awhile back (last May maybe?) I decided to go completely alcohol free until I had lost the weight I wanted. My reasoning was that the calories from the wine, and the lowered inhibition and judgement about what I ate after made it a no-brainer to eliminate. Sure enough it was much easier to lose weight that way. I was also doing other things like trying to lower my saturated fat intake from cream, cheeses, eggs etc. A month went into another month and as time went on I decided that I wanted to keep that habit...and I have. I've taken a taste or small glass maybe 3 or 4 times when out in company, but I just don't buy it for myself anymore or drink any of DH's Merlot he keeps on hand. I was thinking about that when reading the Barbara Berkeley link Gill sent this morning. Wine was the toxic sludge (for me) and after cleaning it up I decided to eliminate it on a permanent basis. No...I don't think everybody should, but I like it SO much that I can easily become dependent on having it every day - and it does me no favors!

The second habit is out of control night-time eating. That one is a bit trickier to work with than the wine. I don't really want to do the no-night-time-eating-at-all rule. I do well when I plan my snacks ahead of time -- make sure they're real and healthy food -- and stick to what I've planned. So the habit I'm trying to avoid slipping back into is out-of-control night-time eating.

How to avoid slipping back into these old habits? I think I've figured out that I don't ever want to start buying myself wine again. There's no reason for it, and I do so much better without it. The night-time snacks I must plan ahead on my tracker, and make sure they are in range before I eat them. I also need to plan on them being things like fruit or air-popped corn with nutritional yeast. If I have enough calories left on the tracker I can have dry corn chex with a sprinkling of peanuts. I can brush and floss when I'm done.

Day 87, 100 days Old habits

After WI yesterday and eating more than I usually do I am trying not to return to my old habits of overeating on Wednesday. I wrote a list of tasks I wanted to do and took control of my behaviour today. The jobs did get done and I avoided bad habits today.

Eating while unpacking shopping or when cooking or procrastinating still remains old habits which are a little hard to avoid, I'm trying! I do make sure that these items are usually only fruit so could be a lot worse.

Sneak eating is also an old habit which is hard to avoid however today I have kept busy and avoided this habit pattern! On Sunday I was feeling I wanted something to munch but when I looked in the cupboard upstairs there was nothing I fancied enough to sneak it so I considered this a WIN! emoticon

Old habits Ö they are right below the surface ain't they.

When we moved to Colorado from Texas Ö we were told after we lived in Colorado for 20 years we could start to consider ourselves "locals".

Well, NEW eating, moving, life style changes Ö I guess we have to do them for 20 years before they are our Ö local habits.

I love how the 100 DWL works WITH us - I have also been surprised at how different Days have become more/less relevant as I've repeated the book. Interesting, isn't it? I'm waiting for the time when I can do those 'two bites' exercises.................... they trip me up every time!

Apparently the last time I went through the book, I skipped putting anything on this day. My last entry was two years ago. I talked about having chips at night. I am happily reporting that this is a habit that has been replaced! I now try to plan my day so that I space my food out so a) I am not hungry at night, b) my nutrients are balanced, c) I eat only when I am hungry, and d) I drink cold water if I ďthinkĒ I need to eat at night. Most of the time this works! LOL!

Old habits are damaging and I have been working on damage control!

I'm such a creature of habit. Sooo I'm working on focusing on lots of new habits - like more exercise (short walks, yoga, stretches, water walking/exercises). I do them (with the exception of water walking) in small amounts. I found that walking for an hour - yikes! My knee hurt, my lower back hurt, my feet swell and then they hurt. I need to do what I do in smaller increments of time. I accept that. I just need to DO IT. I'm doing it too. I also have to accept that a loss in small amounts, or to stay the same is OK. I have to look beyond the scale. Those were my worst habits and I'm making changes!

emoticon ďItís a test, itís only a testĒ keeps running through my mind for this lesson.

In March when I went on vacation it took 6 weeks to undo the bad choices of 6 days. When I looked back at it, only one meal was memorable!
I was determined not to repeat that for my birthday trip recently so I paid attention, have memories of great meals and did not gain any weight!

Old habits are like old shoes, comfortable and already broken in.

New habits are hard because we have to leave our comfort zone to adopt them, In time though, healthy habits become our new normal.

Old habits returning? I already see a few.

I am learning how to fit more carbs into my WW plan. My morning numbers have been up a little. I choose to focus on better health.

When I food shop I still fight the urge to buy things for the kids that I want.

I lost over 30 lbs last time I followed WW. Then I stopped using the plan. I stopped counting and never really learned how to eat. Now I know the healthier choices, so I can easily continue using WW.

If I am hungry and it is before meal time I no longer have nuts. I have a couple of tiny tomatoes or petite carrots. That is a "new" habit for me. I also drink more decaf coffee or tea.

I found this interesting because of the exercise we did about unhooking the 'chain' of behaviours.To break an eating habit, I needed to look at why it started and what triggers its re-emergence.

Somewhere way back in time, I turned into a 'cruncher'. Sugar doesn't comfort me but hacking into crisps or tortilla chips or similar is what I reach for.

I recognise this as a behaviour I started when I left home to go to university, which happened within a couple on months of my father dying. I was 18, lonely in a strange place, finding it hard to concentrate on my academic studies but convinced that I had to make a success of it and not complain, because my Mom back home was under enough stress. I had to succeed because 'Your father would have wanted you to make a go of it, Diana.' I was angry with the world.

So I survived on potato chips, cola, apples and the occasional stick of cheese for a year. That was more or less all I ate. I was stick thin, under 100lbs and, most likely, malnourished but I made it through every assignment and grumpy, lonely evening, crunching away.

Come the start of the second year, I was 'rescued' by acquiring a new boyfriend and his Mom, who took one look at my twiggy arms and legs and fed me with proper meals. I began to adjust and made it through to the end of my studies in a better frame of mind.

However, to this day if I'm in a stress position workwise or emotionally, the desire for crunch and fizz re-emerges. The 'high shelf' for snack food is a deterrent; fizzy drinks like diet coke live in the garage, where I have to make a conscious effort to get a key and go outside.

A decent Kanzi apple cut into crunchable slices remains a friend....not forgetting carrot and celery sticks!

Looks like we all suffer (or suffered) from eating too fast and portion distortion. I have learned to slow down. Amazing - I fill up so much faster too.

Another thing I sometimes still have a problem with is ME - putting the focus on ME, believing that it's OK to put myself first. I've always put everyone else first. That's OK, as long as I don't get lost in the shuffle somehow. I'm important too. I do this to myself. emoticon

LivinToday...that eating too fast is really hard to break. I am still working on it, but it is so important. I also had portion distortion when I tried to gauge what I should eat by sight. I measure every chance I get.

I seem to still have trouble unloading two old food habits: one is eating too fast and one is portion distortion....I WILL not give up though!

I seem to have good exercise habits now but I can still slip up. Life-long habits are just hard to completely leave behind.

I have come to see it as an ongoing, mindful, battle....but I sure would like to sign a peace treaty! LOL

Day #87 Old Habits
Whatís the saying ďold habits die hardĒ? Iím sure some of my old habits will always be with me but Iíve learned to put up that stop sign and keep going.
I have learned to find my own rules, that's why I love Sparkpeople. Take the information that suits you, leave the rest for others who need it!

Habits I don't want to slip back into: eating too fast and not paying attention...not tracking what I eat.
Tracking is key for me. It helps keep me focused. When I know I will have to log something it makes me think of the cost. I don't mindlessly eat now and I want it to stay that way. Even when I reach goal weight I will have to stay mindful.

I can avoid slipping back into old habits by staying aware. Everything I do can have a positive or negative result. This is mentally and physically.

Well! What a surprise! I had no idea that so many people would be 'doing' breakfast the same way as me - I'm so glad I shared that!

Sue - the first suggestions is to always have a meal plan. I find that because I have a 'habit' of planning my meals, I will always prepare and eat what I've planned 99/100 times!

I don't know what kind of food you like to eat - but pizza is a big 'hit' of carbs, fat & salt. If you eat fish - opening a can of something like pilchards in tomato sauce, and having them with some toasted bread might hit the spot. If you eat meat - then something like an avocado smashed onto toast, served with ham might work. If you eat eggs, then an omelet with some grated parmesan on top could be a good solution - fill it with mushrooms, have it with hot-sauce. As a vegan - hummus is always a good solution - with some oatcakes, and perhaps some olives on the side - add carrot, cucumber, bell pepper strips to make an attractive platter. Or a jacket potato (quick if you have a microwave - I don't!) with chilli beans on top and a sprinkle of sharp cheddar.

Well, those are a few things that I came up with, that give you a carb/fat/salt experience - I'm sure you can come up with your own 'easy' meals that would hit the spot. If you really want to let go of the pizza habit - then you need to decide what will replace it. Good luck! Let us know how you get on!

Day #87 Old Habits
There are times when the old habits do come back; the recent vacation for instance where I didn't end up off the road but certainly hit some pretty good potholes!

I have learned to find my own rules, that's why I love Sparkpeople. Take the information that suits you, leave the rest for others who need it!
I've learned that I don't want breakfast for a few hours after I'm up, just coffee!
I've learned that on weekends I like to have "brunch" instead of breakfast and lunch!
I've learned that I can do this "my way" and being retired means I can take time to figure out what is best for me.
It's all about finding new habits that stick!

Ahh, the debatable topic of whether or not to eat breakfast. For years I didn't eat breakfast because I felt like it set the tone for then entire day - I felt hungry all the time! Then came SP and other weight loss attempts which tell you YOU MUST EAT BREAKFAST! YOU MUST EAT THREE MEALS A DAY! YOU SHOULD EAT TWO SNACKS A DAY! Before you knew what hit you, you start thinking to yourself "Oh no! I have been doing it all wrong" ! Reading the comments so far has confirmed for me that I need to do what feels right for me. It is 10:20 a.m. and I just finished eating (and tracking) my breakfast. Now I will tell myself "You did a good job, Sue. You ate healthy food and you are full. You are o.k. just as you are" to positively reinforce my behavior.

I have so many bad habits I think I could write a book about them - LOL! The one that comes to my mind right now is this -

When I am tired (the reason doesn't matter) I don't feel like cooking dinner and when I try to think of alternatives nothing healthy comes to mind. My "go to" is ordering a pizza and I can't seem to stop at just 1 or 2 little pieces either!

Any ideas for me?

Day 87, Old Habits

The shocking thing to me about old habits is that they simply won't go away. I can be in a new routine for a year or even more and something will happen that knocks me off track and the old habits are immediately trying to come back.

I do eat not long after rising in the morning but I used to have carbs for breakfast, sometimes sweets like cinnamon roll or carmel rolls, more often sweet cereals. I can say that I do not do that now and have not for years yet....but when we travel...those carbs are always calling to me, pancakes and syrup, waffles with fruit compote, my rolls.....and I have a high protein breakfast now....I do not eat that stuff.....the old habit is lurking though..waiting..waiting..to pounce.

Exercise today, Seated core exercises and walking

Ahh, old habits. For me they are hard to break as I am such a creature of habit.

Breakfast. I don't like to eat as soon as I get up. I 'need' coffee though. So I fix some thing and bring it to work with me. It's working OK. I too used to think I 'needed' to eat before I left home. No, I don't! I 'need' to eat when I'm hungry.

There is one habit that I've ditched recently - and that's the timing of my meals. I used to get hungry at work in the afternoon, or in the late evening if I was working until 10pm.

I always used to eat breakfast as soon as I got up - and would get up extra early to have time to have breakfast if I was leaving for work early.

For the past few months, I've been just having coffee when I get up - and taking my breakfast with me to work.

I have been pleasantly surprised to drop my old habit (and belief!) that I absolutely had to eat something as soon as I woke up. Now I usually eat my breakfast around 10am-11am, and I'm absolutely fine with that. It means I can defer my lunch until around 2pm, which then means I don't get too hungry in the afternoon, and can wait until I get home (or until about 7pm if I'm at work) for my dinner.

I find it hard to even remember my old habits! It's usually when I see someone doing something, and I think "gosh, I used to do that!"

I would always have to eat biscuits(cookies) if they were laid out on a plate. Now I don't.

I would always have a snack between each meal. Now I don't.

I used to be in a rush a lot of the time (and have little accidents as a result - either knocking myself on things, bumping my head, or dropping things). Now I am slower and more careful.

I did scroll down & read my last post - and I have cut&pasted it into a Xmas folder on my computer. Later I will transfer it to my Fly Lady Xmas Control Journal! Thank you Fly Lady.

Day 87 Old Habits

Ah...yes, old habits never seem to completely leave us.
We make new habits.
We consign the old habits to the trash bin.
We do everything in our power to stifle them but...
We just cannot slay them.

They hang around;
They lurk;
They stay in the dark nooks and crannies of our mind and then
They strike..and it is as if they were never gone!

I find myself standing at the refrigerator, looking in, looking for something I can't find there
I find myself settling for what I can find...food!

I have won though
I no longer have just any old thing that can be called food in my refrigerator
I have healthy food!
I have food that nourishes and strengthens my body.

That thing that cannot be found in my refrigerator? What? Is it Comfort, security, love, strength?

I find it in activities I enjoy
I find it in my friends and family
I find it in being my own best friend
I find it in SparkPeople
I find it in nature
I find it in my faith

Because I will not give up on living a healthy life.
I WILL NOT!

Day 87 strength exercise - went to the park with my granddaughter and climbed all over the play equipment with her! Walked the balance beams, climbed the rock climb, went down the slides, played on the seesaw and went on the swings pumping my legs and stretching as hard as I could to go higher and higher. What fun we had!

so very true - I have slipped back into old habits numerous times. So here I sit - losing it once again. Great idea. I'll make a list of those old habits. I'll read that list and focus on it when I feel stressed and ready to find 'comfort' in my old 'unfriends.'

your notebook, make a list of habits that have caused you trouble in the past.
Don't forget the can of nuts or the candy bars you used to hide in your drawer at work. What about the fried cheese sticks or barbecued chicken wings you always ate at happy hour?
Write a few sentences about how you can avoid slipping back into those old habits.
Day 87: Old habits
Right now, you may feel totally confident that this time, you will never gain your weight back. I certainly hope that you're right. But unfortunately, you still have to deal with the same family members, bad weather, and work issues that always hurt your enthusiasm in the past. Plus, a few of your old habits probably haven't completely disappeared and some of them may start looking appealing again very soon.
Get rid of old habits
Almost without exception, people who regain weight admit it's because they slipped back into their old habits. It starts out with skipping your usual oatmeal one morning, then having a doughnut and coffee on the way to work.
Just a few days later, you remember how good that doughnut tasted, so you stop at the coffee shop again. Before long, you slip back into your old habit of eating a couple of doughnuts every morning before you go to work.
Sometimes, you simply let a routine slip away. Maybe you miss a day or two on your exercise program and now it seems easier to grab a bag of chips than to walk on your treadmill. Perhaps you return to the solace of a bowl of ice cream before bedtime. Or you go back to eating in the car instead of taking time to sit down and relax with your meal.
To prevent slipping back into your old habits, you may still have to break the patterns that got you into them in the first place. Start with identifying times when you eat strictly out of habit, then decide how you could change your routine.
Create new patterns
If you have certain times you always associate with food, look for ways to shake things up. For example, instead of heading straight for the kitchen when you get home from work, try doing something that will break your normal pattern. Turn into your driveway from the opposite side or use the back door of your home instead of your usual entrance.
If you always search through the refrigerator before you get ready for to bed, go back to relaxing with a warm bath. When you sit down to watch a TV football game, switch from drinking beer to having a soda.
If your family rituals include things such as eating ice cream together, figure out how to stop yourself from automatically joining in. You might need to invent some new ways to feel connected to these people, even if you're the only person in the group who changes.
I am constantly concerned that I will fall back into old habits. At times I feel like I am fighting myself When I am home, there are times when I am not as strong. Times where I just want to eat the unhealthy food and give in to it. My old habits are not healthy for me. Maybe in the future my healthy habits will be used for so long that they will become my old habits!

This is where the work begins and never ends. my new old habits need to change as they did not stick yet as they are still fresh. I am now believing that the fight (and yes it is a fight) is so worth it. I admit that it is hard but I have gotten through a lot of hard stuff over my life so I can find the strength to do this as well. I have found that I have to work on one specific habit at a time then move on to the next one Ideserve to be a normal weight and a healthy person.
If I fall into a old habit I forgive myself and get right back on. some of the new healthy habits takes time to stick the more time with the new habit the old one will not be as handy. I still have to watch it as old habits are always there to jump right back in and it doesn't take long to be back into it. but look at the time frame I was doing the old habit. new habit not as long that is why I always have to be on my toes on guard not to let those old habits in.
Today is the day I need to nip those old habits out. I let them get back into my life. You always have to work on your new habits to keep them and not allow those sneaky old unhealthy habits back into your life.
My new habits I will work on
Garden- weed and water daily
Journal and track my food and exchanges
bike, walk or playing
less sitting
less ordering and eating out
if do take half meal home for next day
plan ahead prep use freezer and fridge for meals reminder to mark and date stuff into freezer
old habits
no jouraling
eating or ordering out too much
sitting and relazing
not organizing
not walking or biking
not playing
no JOURNALING OR RELAXING New habits begins and can not never ends. my new old habits need to change as they did not stick yet as they are still fresh. I am believing that the fight (and yes it is a fight) is so worth it. I admit that it is hard but I have gotten through a lot of hard stuff over my life so I can find the strength to do this as well. I have found that I have to work on one specific habit at a time then move on to the next one I deserve to be a normal weight and a healthy person.
OLD HABITS DIE HARD BUT I CAN MAKE THEM DIE OR AT LEAST DORMANT.

My January post still fits. I used part of it in my response.

Day 87 Old habits

I am constantly concerned that I will fall back into old habits. At times I feel like I am fighting myself.

Snacking is not a problem when I am at work as I am busy and can limit what food is available.

When I am home, there are times when I am not as strong. Times where I just want to eat the unhealthy food and give in to it.

My desire for sweets is still strong.

My old habits are not healthy for me. Maybe in the future my healthy habits will be used for so long that they will become my old habits!

Yay! Great, Mary! I'm so glad you decided to jump in here - you're going to love this book - the day-by-day process can sometimes seem slow, or repetitive, or irrelevant, but I've found I've changed so much through what I've learned so far, and keep learning.

Hi everyone! emoticon

I was planning to start fresh in March with day 1 ... but this topic spoke to me, so I thought that I might as well jump in.

I had about 40 lbs to lose...which is quite a lot on my petite frame...I lost most of it a few years back, then put it all back and then some, when I went through a really stressful period.

I remember actually consciously making the decision to throw my diet to the wind one evening when I was so tired and so fed up with everything and everyone. I was exhausted and hungry and there was nothing quick and healthy or remotely tasty and filling in the fridge so I made myself that first grilled cheese sandwich and...the same thing happened the next night....and the flood gates opened...I did not care anymore.

It's really hard to drop the pounds again the second time round! Really really hard ....my middle aged hormonal body simply refuses to give up the weight.

One old habit that I will never again revert to is not knowing what my next meal is going to be...atleast in outline, if not all the details...Had I had something healthy that I could have warmed up that evening....or that week....... my weight loss may have stuck... emoticon

So in the future I will always know where my next meal is coming from. ...even when I am traveling....or really busy....or exhausted...or sick...always always.

I have been reading quite a lot about habit-formation over the past few months - and the psychology of making/breaking habits. I agree with you, Pam, it's best to work on establishing one good habit at a time.

I would say that I'm doing pretty well with this overall - I pay attention to my habits and work hard to keep good ones going. I notice when new habits fall by the wayside, and consider why. Establishing and maintaining a new habit is hard work initially - but once it's a habit it becomes easier to maintain.

Something that is in the forefront of my mind at the moment is the whole Xmas thing! More than once, I have found the Xmas has been the 'event' that has caused me to stop a good habit, or at least, disrupt a good habit.

I once gave up sugar for a whole year - then at Xmas, I caved in and started eating sugar again - and couldn't get back to the no-sugar habit.

I once ate raw vegan foods for a whole year - then at Xmas, I caved in and started eating sugar, refined, cooked foods again - and couldn't get back to the raw food habit.

This year I've been on a plant-based, No S system, diet all year - then at Xmas, I caved in and started eating off-plan. This time, I HAVE got back into my good habits - so that's a step forwards.

However, I've been considering how I can manage Xmas better next year - to create a healthy habit for Xmas. I haven't figured it out yet - but I'm working on it! It might be to do with soup, and fruit salads............ and 12 days of 'small treats' that are ceremonially enjoyed (perhaps not even all food). I was thinking 21st December to 1st January as my '12 days of Xmas'. I will have to check back next Xmas and see how I've done!
