What's on your Wednesday menu,RNYers?

on 6/12/19 2:23 am - Brighton, IL

Good morning menu friends! Up early again prepping for work but need to be accountable first! No QOTD here so feel free to add. Accountability yesterday was good both food and stepwise but I was way too low on fluids-only 64 ounces and out in the hot sun all afternoon so I feel terrible today. I MUST do better today. Have drinks ready to go so I'm ready. Lily and I will take our first walk in a few minutes and another sometime this evening. If needed we'll do a third right before I shower and get ready for bed too. Weight today is 123. Here's the food plan B 1/2 c steel cut oats with protein and peanut butter L tuna packet with 1 t mayo and relish D 4 oz burger with cheese no bun S if needed hummus and 4 pretzels. Have a great day full of smart and conscious choices everyone!

Good Morning Karen and Menu Folks,

Today is the annual 5th grade versus teachers kickball game. The first time in many years I don't dread playing because I am 100 pounds lighter.

My belly isn't feeling well this morning. Just feels weird. So it's going to be a protein shake and Greek yogurt kind of day. I fell short on fluids yesterday so I will push them even more today.

Have a great day!

Mornin' All!

off to Chicago today - I have a follow-up with my plastic surgeon tomorrow morning. We're picking up a ceiling fan in Milwaukee on the way down (ordered it a couple of weeks ago) - it's for the new porch. I'm getting so excited about this porch project!! I'm guessing we'll leave later on this morning - so I'll hit the gym before we go. I'm also going to swap my morning snack (protein shake) with breakfast since the lunch hour is going to get screwed up, and DH doesn't always eat regular meals. I just don't want to risk overeating if/when we do stop to eat later on today.

accountability was OK yesterday, but I think I'm going to have to either cut calories a bit or step up on the exercise. Weight isn't budging. Boo.

4 years out:

B: frozen protein shake, coffee with half & half

MS: 1/2 C protein oatmeal topped with 1/2 C whipped & sweetened cottage cheese, raspberries

L: ?? (taking a couple of protein bars with me just in case, so maybe one of those if needed)

D: DH wants to stop at a Middle Eastern restaurant, if so a chicken kabob & hummus

ex: exercise bike for sure, maybe a yoga class if there's one at the gym early enough this morning

have a great day, all!

They said 4-6 weeks, depending on weather. Week 1 will be over tomorrow (they started last Thursday with demo of the old deck that the porch will be replacing)
