Good morning menu friends! Sticking with the routine and posting here first thing. I'm a person of habit and it keeps me on track. Tired today as I stayed up too late to watch the blues win the Stanley Cup. Go Blues! QOTD What's your favorite sport and team.? Hockey and the Blues for me. Accountability was perfect yesterday both food and stepwise. Weight today is 122.8. Lily and I will take 3 walks today and here's the food plan B 1/2c steel cut oats with protein and peanut butter L 1 egg foo young patty D 4 oz brat burger S if needed hummus and 4 pretzels. Have a wonderful day full of healthy and conscious choices everyone! Coffee time!

Good Morning Karen and Menu Folks,

Karen, thank you for getting us started every morning! Today is the day, it is finally here... the last day of school! 5th-grade students are promoted at 9:30 and by 11:00 most of them will go home and start their summer vacation. I really do like my job and I love teaching but I am ready for these children to move on.

QOTD: Baltimore Orioles - baseball, Raven - football and Capitals - hockey

Although my belly is feeling better I am just tired of food right now. Here is what I think I will be eating today:

PP Shake

Greek yogurt

ham and cheese or turkey and cheese

I just don't know why I am feeling like this, it's a new weird feeling.

Have a great day everyone!

I sometimes feel the same way too,Beth. Food is just blahs. Sadly though anything sweet always sounds good. The other night I told hubby that what I wanted for dinner was a DQ Blizzard. I didn't of course--I ate food instead but that was the only thing that sounded good.

I SOOO get it about sweets. Especially when I'm tired and stressed, all I want are sweets and healthy food just turns my stomach. Fortunately, I have recently found that some plain oatmeal or cottage cheese will often go down at those times.

I like sweets too and I don't dump so I try to stay far away from them. Today there was a ton of cookies left over from the ceremony and every time I walked through instead of grabbing a cookie I grabbed a small water bottle, that is a huge success.

Beth, you've had a big year and it is winding down. Your mind and body are probably just tired and need a rest. Drink lots of fluids to stay super hydrated and just nibble a few healthy foods. Get some good rest and hopefully in a few days, you can get back to a routine.

Hope your last day of 5th grade goes well!

Such good advice! I am 'end of the year' teacher tired today. The students are gone, the day is almost done and it is super quiet. Tomorrow I come into finish records and then I am officially off for the summer.

Morning all! Cool, pouring rain and totally miserable here this morning. All the way into wor****pt debating about whether to just turn around and go home. Really feeling stressed at home and at work right now and a rainy day with my head under the pillows sounds divine! For the moment I'm here at my desk but we'll see if any other options come up...lol!

Karen, I just have to say that you are such an inspiration. You remind me so much of Grim's advice to "be a machine". You stick with it and continue to be a true success!! Yeah for the Blues and kisses to Miss Lily!

QOTD: I don't follow sports alot or any particular team. DW & I always watch World Cup soccer and sometimes we'll watch whatever soccer game is on TV (the local Spanish channel carries alot of games). I also really love hockey but haven't been to a game in many years.

Accountability: I did have one pecan sandie cookie yesterday but kept it to one. I really appreciate all the support yesterday in encouraging me to stay away from the junk. Today is a new day and I'm going to try again.

Menu:

B1: iced coffee w/ CarbMaster milk & 1 1/2 scoops of Isopure C&C protein powder

B2: turkey sausage patty and scrambled eggs

S: CarbMaster yogurt

L: EverRoastchicken, baby carrots

S: more yogurt

D: DW invited people over for dinner and they are picking up take out. I ordered a garden salad with grilled chicken.

E: I'd like to hit the treadmill at lunch since it is too icky to go do a walk/run outside.

B: Fit Frappe Mocha & egg
