Good morning menu folks! I just saw Daisy's post about stepping down from the menu thread leadership. I am sad to hear this news. I have tried to do some fill-ins since I am up early, but I can't say that I feel qualified to lead the group. I am starting this morning, but please feel free anyone to step up and take over.

QOTD: I am at a loss for a good question, so someone else can pipe in with something.

Accountability: I didn't feel like cooking my filets last night so I switched for more turkey breast. I will cook the filets tonight instead.


Breakfast: hard boiled egg, 2 oz ham

Snack: Cappuccino protein shake

Lunch: TJ's chicken sausage

Snack: 2 oz turkey breast

Dinner: filet mignon

Exercise: 60 minutes on the treadmill

Good morning :)

I'm off to my new job this morning. I definitely have a case of the butterflies. I've got my lunch bag packed with snacks to split up over the day and lots of *water flavourings.

My question -- what was your most memorable job? I worked at a sock factory one summer. It was so hot in the factory with dryers and presses. I remember melting on the couch when I got home the first day. My mom would ask, "What did you do today? White socks or black socks??" Lol.

Post-op two years, six months.

Breakfast - protein shake

Snack - egg, cheese

Snack - turkey pepperoni

Snack - turkey sausage

Snack - yogurt, nuts

Dinner - chicken

Snack - protein shake if needed

All water and vits.

All the best on your first day of your new job!

QOTD: I worked in a fish market for a few weeks one summer in college. I have a limited sense of smell do to nerve damage and it was helpful so I didn't mind that I smelled like fish all the time.

Mornin' menu family!

Busy week this week - plus my extracurricular activities are imposing on my yoga/meditation schedule again - boo! Although it's not that I don't enjoy most of my extracurricular activities - I do. Tonight is our neighborhood association board meeting, tomorrow night it's dinner with a friend, Thursday night is a committee meeting for the organization that I chair. Next weekend I work. We also start teaching classes at the library this week (Intro to Composition, Intro to Speech, and English as a Second Language classes all come to the library for 1-2 sessions to learn how to use our electronic resources. I'm working with two of them later on this week).

2 years 3 months out:

B: homemade Greek yogurt, mango pieces, raspberries

S: coffee with half & half, SF pumpkin vanilla latte protein/Miralax shake

L: meeting a friend at a Mexican place - probably my usual two tacos

D: Emiepie's egg salad with lettuce on a FlatOut FoldIt

if I think of picking up some more peaches today, then a grilled peach with vanilla yogurt and cinnamon later on tonight. Peach season is almost over, y'all!!

QOTD: it's hard to pick one memorable job (I've had a few memorable ones - some good and some not), but I guess I'd pick the two years I spent directing a residence hall (i.e., dorm) at a small college in the North Carolina mountains. I didn't like it at the time (couldn't wait to get out of there), but I made some really good friends there, with both students and staff. That was over 30 years ago, and some of those friendships are still going.

I also spent six years doing tech support over the phone for public and school libraries (i.e., those small enough that they didn't have an on-site tech person). Made a lot of friends at that job - and in some of those libraries - too. That was a super stressful job and I was fried to a crisp before I left there, but that job opened a lot of doors for me and again, I have a lot of ongoing friendships from my time there.

Funny how those two jobs stand out for me. I would have never guessed that at the time...
