Hi Everyone,

No menu post yet today so I'll kick it off! Julia has already been awake for 6 hours by now LOL!

QOTD: If you could be one person for one day, and then revert back to being yourself, who would you be?

I would be Jeff Bezos, and I would donate $100 million to all the causes I care about, and then come back and be my regular self. A side advantage of this single day would be finally (maybe? Sort of?) understanding what it's like to be a MAN.

Time since surgery: 5.75 years!

B: 6 homemade ground chicken/spicy havarti meatballs (they're small)

L: Leftover ground turkey marinara sauce with a few noodles

D: Trader Joe's shwarma chicken - NYMom sent me a pic of this and it looks GOOOOD. Some side for the BF.

E: Body Pump at 5:45!

Have a great day, everyone!!!

Ha! I knew someone else would be typing a starting thread at the same time I was! Just deleted mine. TJ's chicken shawarma? OMG - I have to try that!!!

QOTD: not a particular person, but I'd also like to be a man for a day just to try to have an understanding of what it was like.

it's supposed to rain all day today here in southern Wisconsin, so I'll be doing indoor activities - I have lots of stuff I can be working on. Plus I'll go to an exercise class or two as well. I need it!

accountability was great yesterday - but my weight is up this morning. Boo. Lots of fluids are on the agenda for today....

4 years 3 months out:

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

MS: maybe nothing since I'm having a later-than-usual breakfast

L: salad with diced turkey breast and light dressing

AS: frozen protein shake or light yogurt or protein pumpkin pie

D: Beyond Meat "bratwurst" in a Flat Out wrap with sauerkraut and ketchup (the Beyond bratwursts are good (I had one last night), but they're not spiced like the bratwurst you get around here. I still liked it, though)

have a great day, everyone!

Ha, it's inevitable!

The chicken shawarma is in a package by their chicken sausages and salmon, at my store. It's thighs in this delicious looking orange marinade. I am going to make Kris do it outside on the grill!

OMG, every teenager's nightmare! To have their parents inside their head! LOL!

I was just thinking yesterday about all the things I got up to in high school that my parents had NO idea about. I mean, for all I know, my 17-year old stepdaughter is smoking weed on her way to her hostessing job when she catches a ride after school. It's not like she would tell us that, but we have to be realistic!

And!!!! Was it amazing? I didn't make one this weekend but I have to put that on my menu for the week. What cheese/seasonings did you use? It looks like cheddar maybe, not mozzarella?
