What's on your Thursday Menu, RNYers?

Good Morning my Menu Friends! Can anyone relate to this, haha? I have such good intentions but find that if I don't have everything done and prepped over the weekend, it all goes out the window and I do what is easy. Thankfully this has been one of the well prepped weeks :)

I know we are behind a lot of you in terms of nasty weather, but Boston has temps in the 20s and snowflakes in the forecast over the next 48 hours. I am so unprepared...literally because my winter stuff is still in the attic...and emotionally because I am still mourning the loss of my best summer ever.

Accountability: 2 days in a row of perfect behavior. Finally detoxed from the Halloween debacle of 2019.

QOTD: Do you pop out of bed when you wake up, or lay there for awhile? My alarm is set for 4am, but I usually wake up on my own at 3:45 and grab my phone. I just can't seem to get myself going until about 4:15, after I have sufficiently scrolled through everything on my phone.

2nd QOTD (help!): Grim and I are ready to open up an ESTY store for our wood projects and we need name suggestions! I'm usually so good at this type of thing, but I am drawing a complete blank. Hit us up with cute and creative names!

Good Morning and Happy Friday-Eve! I'm still on-call for jury duty. It seems my soreness and injuries from Sunday are doing better but I'm still going to slow my run down if needed or cut it short.

Accountability: Not good at all! The snack monster was roaming freely last night.

QOTD: Usually up right before the alarm is going to go off. I get up and turn it off so it doesn't disturb my hubby and his sleep.

QOTD2: Fun!! I'm not good with names and stuff like that but it'll be fun to read through the suggestions you get from this group.

Great job with the 1/2 Kelly! I'm so amazed by your pace. Your time is close to what I run 400's in.

Thank you! I set out for a sub-2 and try and get ahead of that pacer early so I have "buffer".

Good morning all! Yesterday my coworkers surprised me with my desk all decorated for my birthday. I guess they figured I wouldn't be to work today for my birthday so they surprised me a day early. There was balloons and confetti everywhere! Had a beautiful bouquet of flowers on my desk too. And they got me all kinds of goodies. Sugar free chocolates, skinny pop popcorn etc. Also a bunch of scratch off lottery tickets.....which I actually won $5,000! I never win anything!! Lol. They had homemade pound cake and red velvet cupcakes as well, but I was good and did not touch them! They are literally the sweetest coworkers ever!

QOTD: I used to linger in bed a bit, but now I force myself to get up so I'm not late due to the traffic situation here. I normally wake up a few minutes before my alarm goes off....sometimes it can be an hour-2 hours before it goes off, but I will lay there and get every minute of sleep in I can get until the damn thing goes off! Lol

QOTD2: That is so exciting! I'm afraid I'm not very creative when it comes to names, but I will come back if I think of anything.

B: premier shake

B2: coffee w/Splenda

L: turkey and cheese roll up

D: salmon and broccoli
