Hope you made it to Costco! I love the egg bites and one is plenty. They are more filling than the Starbucks ones, IMO!

Good morning JB and Menu friends. Just another day at the office yesterday, many projects, aggressive deadlines, but we will get it done. Fast and flexible seems to work well today. Once I returned from the gym I started to prep for a long weekend of camping, we leave Thursday after work. Campground on Lake Champlain, though we do not have a Lake site, The campground has a great beach though, so that is a plus. Both of the boys are moving out this weekend, Ryley back to the Dorms and Alex to an apartment. Alex is working full time and taking a couple of classes.

Accountability - I had to stop at the store on the way home from the gym and bought a package of pepperoni and cheese that were not on my menu.

QOTD - I am awake at 5:30, I am out of bed at 6:30. Our standard poodle Bethany sleeps with Ryley, when Joddie gets out of bed at 5:30 she lets Bethany out of Ryleys room and Bethany comes to snuggle with me for an hour. We do our lunch prep the evening prior so once showered I am out of the house by 6:55, work by 7! Love it!

B - Egg muffin cups

S - ham roll up

L - salami and cheese

S - cukes and dip

D - cheesy chicken broccoli casserole

E - Cardio night

I have to drop one of the cats off at the vet clinic this morning (stem cell treatment #2), then I'll go get my mom to take her to her ophthalmology appt (she has macular degeneration). This afternoon I'm supposed to get together with my mother-in-law to go furniture shopping, although she's been cancelling out on us a lot lately - so we'll see. This evening we've got a reception to go to - so, busy day. I'm hoping to get in some exercise at some point - I'm feeling like a blob this morning.

QOTD: I always wake up between 5:00 and 6:00 but am almost never out the door before 8:00. I like to sit propped up in bed with my coffee and my laptop, reading my email, the news, and checking in with OH.

4 years 2 months out:

B: protein pancakes with plain Greek yogurt and homemade fruit compote, coffee with half & half

MS: protein shake

L: cottage cheese

AS: if I'm out, then I'll take a protein bar along with me in case it's needed

D: they're having appetizers at the reception, so something safe there. I should probably eat a bowl of high fiber cereal before I go just in case...

have a great day, everyone!

OMG Julia...only you! You are what, seven days into the new job? And capable enough to train someone! You rock. They must already love you.

QOTD: Well, I work from home so I can go from bed to office in about 30 seconds. In the ideal world, I would get up around 7, drink coffee while watching the first 20 minutes of the Today Show and then get working, but I tend to wake up, roll over, read emails on my phone and all relaxing vibes are gone - I work for a German company so I wake up to tons of work/fire drills/issues/inquiries/meeting requests etc. I love what I do though, so it's not terrible, but some days (like Monday) I end up working 11 or 12 hours. I don't have a commute which is great, but the days can be very long.

The eats for today...

B: Decadent day today - I broiled a pound of lump crab last night with mayo and Old Bay so all the leftovers are for me! 5 oz crab in mayo and Old Bay

L: You guessed it! 5 oz crab and Old Bay

D: TBD - I have to drive 2.5 hours to our office in PA later today, so depending on when I leave, I may meet a coworker for dinner out or just pick something up to have in the hotel (like a Chipotle burrito bowl).

E: I dragged my butt to the gym this morning! I did 45 minutes weight machines, 10 minutes rowing. I rowed 100 m and the machine said I burned 29 calories. That's depressing. Not that I eat back my exercise calories but jeez. I am already feeling it since I did Body Pump last night. It's weird to say to your gym friend after a tough class, "Ok, see you in 11 hours" lol.

God, I am jealous of your 30 second commute! Although one of the jobs I turned down was a work from home situation, but I still think I made the right choice... I am very sure I wouldn't know how to start and stop without a commute to give me a hard start/stop.

Yum, crab!

Em - those rowing numbers don't sound right. On a Concept 2 rower 10 minutes would be more like 1000 meters and 125 calories

World Class Fitness in 100 Words: Eat meats and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, Clean, Squat, Presses, Clean & Jerk, and Snatch, Similarly master the basics of gymnastics: Pull-ups, Dips, Rope Climb, Push-ups, Sit-ups, Presses to Handstands, Pirouettes, Flips, Splits and Holds. Bike, Run, Swim, Row, etc. hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
