Ah Tuesday, we meet again! I was so incredibly busy yesterday that the day flew by. It was nice, but I'm glad to have a day at my desk to catch up. I hate feeling behind already on a Monday! I didn't even get a chance to come back and read yesterday's thread yet. I will make time later, because I am excited to hear about the travels of Trish and Sheila!

Accountability: Did I mention I was busy? I didn't eat anything from the time I left the house until I got home. Not awesome. I also walked a lot with an uncomfortably heavy bag on my shoulder and now my back is sore. Gah.

QOTD: What is the last album (or song) you purchased? I bought Aretha Franklin's 30 Greatest Hits this weekend. It made for an enjoyable train ride yesterday :)

Exercise: Gym day!

JB, I don't know how you go all day and not eat! Don't forget to take care of yourself.

Yesterday was a good food day for me. I really stuck to what was planned and I got in over 100+ ounces of water. Trying to stay focused and take care of myself so I can be the best version of myself.

QOTD: I can't remember... it's been that long.

My menu is just about the same as yesterday except dinner will be soup because DH has a soup lunch tomorrow and has volunteered to make hamburger soup. Looking forward to that since it is damp and cool here today.

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

Good morning everyone. I swear it felt like my head just hit the pillow last night and now it's already morning. I've hit another stall with my weight loss. You'd think as many as I've hit so far they'd get easier, but they don't. But I'll keep plugging away until the number starts going down again.

QOTD: hmmmm...gosh that's been so long ago I honestly don't remember.

B: premier shake

B2: coffee w/Splenda

L: salad

D: salmon and veggies

Good morning, everybody!

I have a slew of conference calls today. This will be my last day in the office for the week. Tomorrow, I fly to Houston for a meeting in our Houston office on Thursday, and then Friday I am taking off and going to see my daughter at college. Definitely a jeans and polo shirt day today, since I am not meeting anybody.

I have to bring the huge suitcase on my trip because I need to bring some things to my Daughter that she left at home. When she went to London, she left her cowboy boots here in Chicago and is now lost without them. So I'm packing those.

QOTD: I don't think that I have purchased music since, maybe, 2004? What format did you purchase it on? I am intrigued by the comeback of records, but I have no place in my house to put stereo equipment.

Breakfast: Sausage

Snack: Protein Bar

Lunch: Pork

Snack: Light and Fit

Dinner: Tenderloin

Have a great Day, all!

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

qotd - The Highwomen is my latest purchase, also the sound track to Six (fun musical about the wives of Henry VIII), and Sheryl Crow's duets album.

accountability - ugh. I don't usually get cravings but yesterday I wanted something salty and crunchy...and I didn't have anything like that in the house so I ate a bunch of high protein crap trying to meet that craving and then finally put myself to bed early. I was asleep before 8 and didn't wake up until 230 so maybe I was just tired. I even busted out the "would you eat a chicken breast" mind control and my mind said "oh, that might be salty" so I had an ounce of ever roast chicken. Mind control tricks let me down.


I was never really a chips/crunchy person pre WLS (but please give me all the baked goods). When you get that urge for crunchy/salty, what do you have now post WLS?

i had to be in the office for a 6 am meeting and I have a 6pm call with the Hong Kong office tonight so I treated myself to an extra coffee with Sf toasted marshmallow this morning.

for my fellow coffee and pumpkin spice lovers - I picked up some of Trader Joe's pumpkin spice coffee, it's definitely more spice than pumpkin but really good. Heavy on the ginger!

menu today (in addition to the half and half in the coffees) is

4.2 oz ever roast chicken breast

2 baby bel

1 light and fit greek

1 good culture cottage cheese

1 bratwurst
