Happy Little Friday! This has been an excruciatingly long week for me and I am not even sure why, but it feels like the weekend was a million years ago!

Accountability: All perfect all day, except that Grim didn't eat his chaffles for dinner, so I offered to "help" ;/ But on the plus side I power walked over 5 miles yesterday!

QOTD: Is it "coat weather" where you live yet? Yesterday's high was 61 degrees which felt much colder than I thought it would feel... today we woke up to 42 degrees! The temps are still allover the place though. Apparently Monday (the first day of fall) will be 88.


Exercise: Gym day!

QOTD: I could say the same about Maryland weather JB! This morning it is 48 degrees but the high is 70ish. I did wear a light jacket to school yesterday with a sweater and I left the sweater at school because you just never know.

With the cooler weather, the garden is slowly dying off. We dug 1/4 of the sweet potatoes last evening. I picked the last of the late green beans on Tuesday. I hate not being able to go out and grab a fresh tomato or a pepper.

Speaking of school, my teammate is going to be a long term guidance counselor sub while our guidance counselor is out for the next 8 weeks. I am trying not to be selfish but I am really sad. We have had such a great start to the year and I don't want the classes to start falling apart. I also don't like the added pressure of being 'in charge' of the entire 5th grade when there is a sub next door.

I went to yoga last night although the mental game was tough. I'm thinking it was the stress of school and I just wasn't there mentally. But I did it and the next series is starting so I will be going for the next 8 weeks.

B: sausage, egg, and cheese casserole

L: sausage, egg and cheese casserole with berries

D: not sure yet

Lots of water, all of my vitamins and I will take Max for a walk after work.

Have a great Friday Eve!

Good morning all! Yesterday morning I had a good problem if you can even have a good problem. Lol. I always pick out what I'm going to wear the night before so I'm not rushing around in the morning. Well the pants that I had picked out were too big and were falling off of me. And I didn't have a belt because I don't own any. (Never had a reason to because I've never had issues with pants being too big.). These were pants that were tight pre-surgery. I won't lie....I was a little sad because they were a favorite pair of mine.

QOTD: Not quite coat weather here yet. Although this morning it's 62 degrees and the high will be 80 which is the coolest we've seen thus far. So I'm excited! I welcome the cooler weather! But it will be awhile yet before we have consistent cooler temps.

B: premier shake

B2: coffee w/Splenda

L: roast beef deli meat and cheese roll up

D: baked salmon and veggies

S: L&F yogurt if hungry

I actually stayed on plan yesterday minus the evening snack.....didn't need it. Also been trying to drink more water!

Good morning, everybody!

There is an article on ESPN.com about how world class chess players struggle to keep weight on during the chess tournaments. It says that elite chess players burn through 6000 calories in a 24 hour period and that its not uncommon to lose 15 pounds during a 24 hour period. And this is off of guys with a 135 pound base weight!

Even though the players just sit in chairs, it sounds like the stress of the match causes an elevated heart rate and blood pressure which is similar to working out 24/7. And I guess they don't massively overeat while feeling this stress. I had no idea about this phenomenon.

We are going to a school open house tonight, so I have to drive in to the city today.

QOTD: Its been pretty much summer weather here in Chicago. One thing that I noticed yesterday was that we don't have any color on any of the trees yet. Most years we get a really cold snap right in the begining of October to let us know that summer is over. It will get warmer on and off again after that, but it won't be summer weather.

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Pork

Snack: Jerky

Dinner: Hamburger

Have a great day, all!

do you think this is also lack of hydration?

I will have to go back and re-read the article. It makes sense that if they aren't eating enough, they wouldn't be drinking enough either.
