Happy Monday, all! We're back! I had a nice relaxing weekend--lots of down time and hanging with my guys. I took lots of naps, which somehow made me more tired. But it was nice to be lazy.. :)

Accountability: We ended up going out to dinner and I had an "autumn sangria" (yum!)--otherwise I stayed below calories.

QOTD: Do you have a favorite super hero? Wonder Woman! I used to watch the show after school as a kid and I loved her bad-ass self. Grim and I were musing yesterday that superheroes used to be a lot less complicated than they are today. The heroes were were good, and the bad guys were bad--easy. There were no vast government conspiracies trying to keep the heroes down... it's all so dark, now!

Exercise: gym day!

Good Monday Morning JB and Menuers,

Quiet weekend here too. We ran a lot of errands on Saturday and cleaned up the yard/house. Sunday was a lazy day of playing with Max and watching football. We did run to Camping World in the morning for a few things. We have two more camping trips planned and maybe something over Christmas break.

QOTD: I don't really have a favorite superhero.

Accountability: I have had a bit of regain. There. I said it and I own it. Today's menu is a reflection of what I will eat.

I will have 100+ ounces of water, all vitamins and take Max for a walk.

Have a great Monday!

You can't measure your achievements with someone else's yardstick!

Good morning, everybody!

The weather held up yesterday, so I was able to scrape the two last parts of trim that Marilyn had asked me to. But when I started scraping around one of the windows, pieces of the glazing started falling out. It's an old window and pretty, so we are going to try and have it re-built. When we took out the outside window, we realized that the inside window has been held up by hope for the 15 years that we have been in our house. So we duct taped that window to the frame and ran to the hardware store.

We were able to get a hinge and re-install the interior window. But I ran out of time to strip the exterior window that we removed, so I got one item off of to-do my list but added another on to it.

Marilyn said youngest son was rolling around on the floor saying how sore his legs were from the 5-K on Saturday. I signed up for another one in two weeks, so I don't think that he will be joining me.

Wednesday, I am traveling to Houston for work, and then up to Waco to see DD and meet her boyfriend. So I will post my Photo Friday pictures today. Note cut up shin from bad form deadlifting.




QOTD: Batman when I was really young. Was hulk a superhero in the original TV show? I thought he was just a guy who got mad?

Breakfast: Sausage

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Chicken

Snack: Light and Fit

Dinner: Leftover tenderloin (So good)

Have a great day, all!
