Morning Weekenders!

Everyone remember to turn back their clocks? I think I got them all, except the cars.

I have a cold. I turn into a big whiny baby when I'm sick. I complain, I describe every symptom in detail, I huff and moan. Basically, I'm a nightmare to be around!

qotd: are you like me when you're sick? Or are you a stoic, suffer in silence type?

accountability: meh, not really much appetite so def not eating off plan.


premier protein, and I'm roasting a chicken this morning. Might make some kind of soup this afternoon. No real plan.

happy Sunday everyone!

Good morning! Hope you feel better! QOTD: I'm a baby about being sick but I pretty stoic about pain.

I sucked yesterday. We were away and I ate all the things. Eep. New day today. I'm heading to the gym and grocery store soon.

Can't say I have a real plan today yet, since I haven't been shopping... but I'm planning on sticking to meats all day :)

Good morning! So far I like the time change - the light in the morning made me feel better about being up. I have to admit that a piece of homemade apple pie slipped past my lips last night - yes, the whole thing, but it WAS WORTH IT. And though I had been up in my weight for about a week I'm now down in the middle of my range??

QOTD: I rarely get sick (thank goodness), but I'm pretty stoic about it and pain. I just power through as much as possible. As long as nausea is not involved... I hate to vomit. I was SO relieved when I had no nausea after surgery and the few times I've felt sick from eating wrong, I just toughed it out until it passed. Unlike DS who vomits if he feels sick in any way. When he was little, the pediatricians office would try to use the fact that he vomited as a symptom. I'd have to tell them that he always would vomit when he got a fever, ear infection, you name it. He got sick a lot when a child and now he is the epitome of the guy who wants to be taken care of when he gets sick. He perfected it while a child.

L: Out to lunch - maybe a crab cake?

D: leftovers - chili or 1/2 cheeseburger with veggies

S: Yogurt

Morning OHer's

I set my bedside clock behind one hour so I guess that means that I woke up at 2:33 clock time and 3:33 brain time... We had light snow here Friday!!! -with the possibility of more coming today.

QOTD Illness s I'm usually stoic....past surgeries = stoic.... this knee replacement ahhh not so stoic...it's stuck and it hurts...I have to have it manipulated (broken loose...scar tissue and debris has to be broken loose? so it will bend...it doesn't bend much...ugh) I finally got a date for this week (Yaaaaay) so I get it done on Thursday. Then start pt on Friday. ..can't wait until it's just a knee instead of 'the' knee... Yep....still whining.

Coffee, cream, fiber, vitamins then pp with second, third cup

B hb egg, 2 sausage links

L chicken thigh

D pot roast

Today is football and some cleaning..I'm getting rid of things that i don't use in my utility closet...have a great day everyone....all is good.

Good Morning Erin and Menu Family!
