Goooood morning! Ha, I am going to have to make this photo a reality. Can you imagine how much I could learn to love commuting????
How was everyone's Monday? Mine was rough! Day 1 of "bootcamp" was a lot of information to take in, plus I was completely sedentary all day except for my 2.5 miles walk to the train... But the training was good even though it was overwhelming, and I really loved seeing JAWS on the big screen last night. So fun!
QOTD: I forgot to tell you all that over the weekend my parents celebrated their 45th Wedding Anniversary! Whoohoo for them :) What big milestones have you celebrated recently with your family or friends?
I love tacos.
We just celebrated 34 years a few days ago. My son made it to France and was amazed when the host mother took meat,potatoes,spices, and cheese and put them in the oven. I said..that's a casserole. He has lived a special culinary life in our house.
I'm not eating casserole today. I'm having ham, chicken shawarma,yogurt, and watermelon.
Morning menu folks! We're in for another hot, humid day with an air quality alert again. That means that I don't plan to go out to walk for lunch, but I'll do some indoor laps and stair running. I also have my bag packed for swimming this evening. The pool will feel great after a hot commute!
I posted in another thread that I am considering hiring a personal trainer. I found out that my gym (part of the pool) isn't taking on clients right now, which is disappointing. I was able to locate the information for a personal trainer who was at a work health fair a couple of years ago and will be talking to him today about the possibilities. I did a bit of research on him and found out that he works with alot of post-WLS folks, so that is positive. The best part is that they have cyber sessions available as well as in personal sessions. I'd like to start with some in-person sessions to get more familiar with the exercises and then switch to the cyber sessions, which will be more convenient long term. Swing chickens that this works out well.

Good morning :)
I have an ultrasound this morning and then I'm meeting my grandparents for lunch -- they are taking me out as tomorrow is my birthday :) We are trying this restaurant that started as a boxed lunch catering company which expanded into a sit down restaurant. I haven't checked the menu yet, but I will do that before I go.
QOTD: we celebrated our one-year anniversary in June by sharing the last piece of cake. And the last big-ish family gathering was our surprise baby shower -- well, the lady side of the family anyways lol. Plus my poor uncle who was run out of his house for the afternoon.
Post-op three years and four months.

you and the tacos- like me and chicken wings!
yesterday worked, went to gym and got an iced coffee at dunkin- they are $2 from 2-6. they are also having a regional promotion where if the braves win, we get coffee for .66! yesss. i missed the first one on sunday but will be making the rest if I an help it.
scale back down the 2 pounds from before, but really want to start to see a decrease. yes i know I'm losing inches and have to keep telling myself this, but gaining muscle while trying to lose is HARD yall!I didn't realize that there were only really 2 avenues to building muscle and the one I'm choosing takes the longest (recomposition or recomping).
tonight im taking the post test in prep for the exam on friday, super nervous about it all. No gym tonight- just the plank challenge only.
tomorrow i go see the urologist to find out why im having urinary issues and why my bladder is abnormally shaped and pressing into my pelvis? it has not been fun...
food for today:
leftover stirfry veggies from dinner last night
grilled chicken from mcds (FYI check your mc'ds and wendys app (if you can handle going there) and they have free and $1 sandwiches that I just order the meat.) for $1, that works for me.
protein pancakes (need to get that fiber up)
dinner is roasted chicken, spinach and barley for DH. He has never had barley and I described it as a cross between rice and oats so we will see if it passes. he is really picky but this week so far he has tried jicima and snow peas.
QOTD: I've celebrated my house not breaking anymore! We are finally getting it back together!
