Good mornin everyone!

It was a rough night last night. I had a lot of leg cramps and pain. Yesterday ended up rough with the pain as well. I have my women's doctor visit today at 3. Not looking forward to that what so ever. I will be glad when it's done and over with.

Other than the doctors visit nothing else is planned for the day. We were up to 94 yesterday and it's nots supposed to get above 60 today. Gotta love spring.

QOTD: What's your favorite genre of movie?

I'm not sure. I'd have to say historical type stuff...like Apollo 13 and saving private Ryan. Not necessarily the violent war movies. I just love history.

b: tofu scramble, chicken sausage and GF toast - coffee before

l: chicken tenders and the rest of the egg roll in a bowl

d: not sure on this one yet

s: pretzels with mustard and ???

Good morning all! Got up extra early this morning and got my workout in. Going to try doing them in the mornings again instead of on my lunch break since I've read it's better to workout during your fasting period. So we shall see how this works.

QOTD: This is tough to pick just one. I like drama, suspense and thrillers. I also love a good tear jerker.

B: fasting until noon. Black coffee, hot tea and water

L: Ezekiel toast with peanut butter and a protein shake

D: tuna

S: L&F Greek yogurt and an apple

Good Morning!

Here we go - the start to another week! Let's have a fabulous week!

I have a question for you all - do you consistently weigh and measure your food or do you eye ball it? Also - do you keep a food journal? I sometimes feel that I am 'obsessed' with the numbers I track and wonder if it really is the best thing for me. I weigh and measure everything I put into my mouth & log it in MFP.

QOTD: comedy/drama/thriller

b: 1/2 powerslice bread, 1/4 avocado, 1 egg

S: fairlife latte

l: 50g deli Turkey, 1 light babybel, 1 mini pepper with laughing cow cheese & ebtb seasoning

s: 1/2c cottage cheese, 15g PB, 40g raspberries

d: Turkey sausage & 1/4c sliced cucumber

s: TBD

I eyeball these days unless my weight starts going up - then it's back to measuring. As far as tracking, I still track every day. I got away from it for a month when I was in India, and although I didn't make a pig of myself while there, I came home a few lbs heavier than when I left. Not doing that again...

my dietitian hates that I obsess about calories and slight weight gains, but hey -it's worked all these years, so...

I use MFP and weigh out things every once in awhile to make sure my eyes aren't deceiving me too much.

Weighing measuring and tracking is absolutely the only way to get the best results possible. However I have always eyeballed and try to listen to my pouch. I do make mistakes but never got into the habit of weighing and tracking. I probably should after this weekend.

I weigh and measure about half the time now. When at home, I use a quarter cup measuring cup as a serving spoon when plating our dinner and I keep a scale with disposable deli wrap papers close by to weigh meats.
I also use those tools for a snack, taking a second to put together my snack so I know I can eat my serving mindlessly and not over eat. I know we are supposed to pay attention to the food when eating, but I love to be lost in a book and have my snack or lunch. I also post daily on MFP and if I always charge myself on the high side of calories if I can't figure it out so that I have to at least acknowledge that I ate the damn "insert whatever bad pick I made here". I always tell myself leaving out the bad pick is only hurting myself so suck it up and own it.

We're at a hotel in the Chicago suburbs. We got woken up by a fire alarm at 4:45 (it was either false - or something easily dealt with (I'll ask when we check out), because we weren't outside very long. Needless to say, we never went back to sleep. I guess I'll get some exercise in before we head down to breakfast - and coffee!!!

I have an appt with my plastic surgeon in the city at 10:30. Not sure what we'll do afterward. If the rain isn't bad, we may walk around downtown. If it is, we may head out to the 'burbs and meet up with a couple of cousins.

QOTD: documentaries, foreign, and independent films

B: already had a Fairlife Core Power (took it outside with me during the fire alarm). Will have coffee in about a half hour. We also have some chicken shawarma left from last night - and one pita. I may have that for breakfast (around 9:30 or so) and take some hotel breakfast food (like a couple of yogurts) for the road...

L: ?? I may already be fine after that Core Power and the leftover chicken/pita

AS: maybe one of the hotel yogurts? I also have a couple of protein bars and individual packets of nuts with me

D: ?? Not sure where we'll be - but I have food with me if we're not home

have a great day, everyone!!
