B: coffee and an egg

L: going out with teacher friends so I am just not sure

D: cheddar sausage on the grill, asparagus, grilled zucchini

120+ ounces of water

The first picture is from the promotion ceremony yesterday.

The remaining pictures are the veggie cart DH built me last night. The grand opening of 'On the Cart Garden Vegetables' is Monday! My new summer job.

hi all

quick one for me as usual. first week went well team members are super nice. we went to lunch yesterday and it was $1 street tacos day. I ate the innards, they were yummy.

I ran/walked on Wednesday and will do the same for lunch today. I don't want to get into the habit of working through lunch as I can't leave early so whats the point. also not healthy. so I did charge my earbuds so I will be READY to go.

My food has kind of been crazy not in a bad way but in an unplanned way as I'm here and I was supposed to go back mid week but didn't. so ive been having more protein snacks and less 'real' meals as this office is not super close to restaurants etc.

so food plan today:


coffee so far



1/2 a bang before run

protein bar

Sonoma creamery cheese bar

not sure really what else... I'm winging in and staying within reason on things.

no pics although the views here are AWESOME, like at HOME!!

weekend plans: tomm will sleep in? and go to the gym I think. I also need to make a lemon pie for fathers day for FIL. will try to see my dad sunday.

My laptop is misbehaving...so just saying hi from my phone while running scans... Hope I can log in later.

Sooo glad it's Friday. I need some down time.

First real client training tomorrow, which is really exciting. Working out this morning myself and I need it physically and mentally.

My goal for the day is to super hydrate and eat simply, yogurt, cottage cheese, chicken noodle soup. Give my body and mind a rest.

Hugs everybody

Good morning, everybody! I am going to work from home today and could sleep in, which means that I am up ridiculously early (not Jen early, though).

This should be a fun weekend. My sister, her husband and my two nieces are coming to Chicago this weekend. My nieces are in their mid-twenties. We are all staying in the city and going to see Dead & Company on Saturday night at Wrigley Field. Sunday we are going to brunch for Father's day. Hopefully, the weather cooperates so that we get some pool time at the hotel as well.

Undoubtedly, as we are ready to go to bed after the concert, my nieces will be heading out to the bars around Wrigley Field.

Dead and Company is Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kruetzman from the Grateful Dead with John Mayer playing lead guitar and singing Jerry Garcia's parts. I will try to post the set list for Julia S. on Monday.

Breakfast: Sausage

Snack: Light and Fit

Lunch: Turkey

Snack: PB Fit and apple slices

Dinner: Hamburger

Have a great day, all.
