What's on your Tuesday Menu, RNYers?
Mornin' kids! The rain managed to hold off and I walked all over the city yesterday! I walked well over over 5 miles by skipping public transportation and huffing it with a 30lb backpack from school to school.
QOTD: What would your pre-op self find most surprising about your post-op self? As I was voluntarily walking all over yesterday, I was musing that my pre-op self really went out of my way to stay sedentary and would never have thought it was a treat to walk instead of ride.
Exercise: Gym day!
- High Weight before LapBand: 200 (2008)
- High Weight before RNY: 160 (2015)
- Lowest post-op weight: 110 (2016)
- Maintenance Weight: 120 (2017-2019)
- CW: 130 and dropping... thank you Keto! (2020)
Good Morning JB and Menu Friends,
JB great job walking and slugging the 30-pound backpack with you! I managed to run my errand, take a walk and do the yard work before I completely collapsed into bed at 7:30! I have been awake since 3:30 because of it but I did sleep great!
Accountability: good, not great
QOTD: I can do hard things. I can limit myself, I can walk/run when I am tired, I can if I try. My pre-op self wouldn't try.
Vitamins, water, and a walk will all happen again today.
You can't measure your achievements with someone else's yardstick!

Great job JB!! That's impressive!!
i am dragging today, but have some good meetings ahead. We are only in this office space for one. More week so I need to make sure I am all packed and ready to go by end of Thursday. I have a massage this afternoon that I desperately need -- too much sitting and driving over the weekend! Plus I tried a different instructor for cardio Pilates last night and I'm feeling those heavy springs this morning!
qotd - how much more energy I have. Also, that my feet shrank, lol. I didn't expect that!
coffee + half and half x 3
3 oz ever roast plus .8 oz cheddar
not sure about dinner
ex - maybe a walk after massage
have a great day!!

Good morning, everybody!
Today I have to drive up to Milwaukee to participate on a 50 minute panel at a continuing education event. So basically five hours of driving and 25 minutes of speaking. But it will get me one day closer to my mini vacation. I haven't checked the weather in West Palm Beach, hopefully it will not be a hurricane.
The drive to Milwaukee is not scenic, although there are many beautiful parts of Wisconsin in other parts of the state.
QOTD: How little I sleep.
Snack: Protein bar
Lunch: Hopefully Sous Vide egg bites if I can find a Starbucks
Have a great day, all!
