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.

Accountability: Perfecto

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!

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!

3 oz ever roast plus .8 oz cheddar

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.

Breakfast: Sausage

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Hopefully Sous Vide egg bites if I can find a Starbucks

Snack: Jerky

Dinner: Steak

Have a great day, all!
