Good morning folks! We've made it to Friday!!

I did pretty well with my goals yesterday. I did end up having an extra 10 oz cup of coffee (it WAS free after all!) but I got in 80 oz of plain water plus all of my other non-caffeinated fluids for at least 200 oz. It really helps me to feel healthier. I also didn't have any donuts, muffins, cookies or cake. I did however have an after dinner waffle with PB. I also ended up going for a run down the Mall at lunch (see evidence below). Lots of teenagers crowding the sidewalks so it wasn't relaxing but still nice to be out.

Today I am working at home so it should be more relaxed but I'll end the day with a couple of hours of OT so it will be a long one.

QOTD: This was National Library Week. A shout out to catwoman and the other librarians in the group! So some library questions. Do you read much? Is it all work related? Fiction vs non-fiction? Do you read on an electronic device or do you prefer paper? Do you ever go to the brick & mortar library and check out books or use their resources onsite? Just curious!

Well, I am a lifelong reader and love print books. Part of my current job is processing both electronic works (including books, computer programs, websites, etc.) and print books, but when I come home I read on my tablet for the most part. We do still have several large bookshelves in the living room stacked with books, partly because I LIKE them and partly because there are some genres that I prefer print to electronic (cookbooks, crafts, history). DW & I went to our local public library last night so she could get out of the house in a "safe" space. I'm hoping that she might be willing to go regularly and even participate in some of the activities.

Manu:

B: coffee, ham

S: turkey breast

L1: cottage cheese w/ berries & walnuts

L2: protein shake post workout, more turkey

S: not sure if I'll need one

D: Something fast like TJ's chicken sausages

E: hour of heavy lifting in the gym

Have a great day folks!

Morning! We made it to Friday!

QOTD: Do you read much? Yes, all the time. About 35-40 books per year between paper and Audible.

Is it all work related? Nope, not much of it is.

Fiction vs non-fiction? More fiction than non-fiction, but I read both. I really like historical fiction and then I also recently read Educated by Tara Westover and loved that.

Do you read on an electronic device or do you prefer paper? I don't read on my Kindle pretty much at all. I do, however, listen to a ton of Audible books (about 2 per month).

Do you ever go to the brick & mortar library and check out books or use their resources onsite? Yes! We have an amazing library here in Chapel Hill.

My Food:

  • Coffee w/ Cream
  • Eggs w/ Cheese & Avocado
  • TBD, they are bringing in lunch for a meeting
  • Burger w/ Broccoli
  • Cottage Cheese w/ Granola, Apple w/ PB

Good morning! Today it will be 90, so we are going to the beach.

QOTD: Reading has always been my favorite form of relaxation, escape and critical to me since I first learned. I didn't read early but learned quickly. When I was in first grade, I surpassed the readers we were supposed to use so the teacher had me read books to kindergarteners which I thought was punishment (LOL). I mostly read fiction because that is how I escape when needed. And essentially always on my kindle which I fell in love with when they first came out. I loved it even more when the paperwhite came out because I have to read prior to falling asleep and need to have all the lights out other than the booklight.

Accountability: One word: pizza. Argh...

3 year post-op - post maintenance, trying to lose regain.

Always lots of coffee...

L: fish of some sort (out to lunch again)

LOL! Thank you Karen! He was sitting in my lap and I used my iPad camera in a somewhat contortionist manner.

I can't believe you got the picture after "contortioning". Neither one of my dogs would have still been on my lap and the dachshund would have given me dirty looks.

Quick post before I head out to do a mountain of laundry. Accountability yesterday was good even with unexpected dinner out--guts of two fish tacos and one small tortilla. Weight today is 124.2. Goal is at least 100 ounces of liquids which will be easy with no work today. Lily and I will do 3 short walks and a 3 mile park walk at some point today. Heres todays food B 2/3 c earnest eats hot cereal L4 oz crab salad D some sort of protein at the Lions club BBQ. Have a great day full of smart and conscious choices!
