Happy Monday, VSGers! I got my hike in yesterday like I wanted! We did 4.2 miles with the kids and also took them to a family fun day sponsored by their PTSA. I went on the playground swing for the first time in forever and my butt didn't hurt (see picture below)! I was able to run for part of our hike too, and my trail shoes are really awesome for that. I've used them for a lot of hiking but no trail running so far.

QOTD: Today is Remembrance Day for those of us in the U.S. Where were you on 9/11? I had just started my Freshman year in college and was in the dining hall watching the TV when the 2nd plane hit the tower. The University I work for now lost four Alumni that day. We have a piece of the metal from the 1st tower that has been turned into a memorial for them. My folks are in charge of the sound/AV for it this morning.

Today is my 5-month post-op anniversary. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! Now that my eating is more normal, I plan to start posting my menus for accountability. But first, my answer to the QOTD...

I was a senior in college. I remember having the Today show on while I was getting ready for class. It seemed so surreal!

Breakfast: Mini egg turkey sausage and cheese egg muffins

Snack: Soy latte

Lunch: Short ribs and mushrooms

Dinner: Going out to eat tonight. I will likely have the filet mignon or shrimp with a vegetable

Good morning, hope you all had a good weekend. The sun is out and the sky is blue for the first time in so long! Our valley is getting a break from the smoke today, thank goodness.

QOTD-I had just had foot surgery and was home recuperating, I just sat in stunned silence like most everyone. It shows what a small world we live in when most of us knew someone, either directly or indirectly, that died that day. My uncle's best friend's daughter lost her husband, he too worked at Cantor Fitzgerald.

B-Yogurt w/chia, flax & pumpkin mixture

L-Leftover spinach and mushroom omelet

S-chai tea w/vanilla protein shake

D-I have no idea

E-Finally get to walk in clean, fresh air today!
