What's on your Thursday Menu, RNYers?

Goooood morning! Today should be fun... I was already at the absolute maxim of annoyance with all humans yesterday. Since I am in HR and support 35 schools, there is no limit to the number of employees behaving badly some days, and yesterday was a doozy. I was basically at the growl-when-reading-email-stage and stifling an "are you ******g kidding me?" when answering the phone, all day yesterday. And for no reason whatsoever, I have been wide awake since 2:30am, so this does not bode well for my mood today.

Accountability: Another perfect day with eating. Thank you, keto for keeping me full and not craving carbs! I walked about 3 miles total in the single digit cold, but caught the bus when it passed because it was pretty brutal out. I will use some of my extra time from getting up early this morning to hit the elliptical machine, because today's weather will be about the same.

QOTD: Do you have exercise equipment at home? If not, what do you wish you had?

  • I have an elliptical machine which is really nice, but I am so bored with...
  • I also have a treadmill that I bought off of craigslist, which is no longer calibrating the speed correctly and is dangerous!
  • and Grim has a recumbent bike which is no longer hooked up to electricity, so we can't track it or change resistance...

I am a little obsessed with the idea of the Peloton bike, but if I had to choose one thing to replace, it would be the treadmill. I'd love to get a really good quality one, but they are sooooo expensive!

Sticking to the exact same menu... it's keeping me completely satisfied :)

Good Morning and happy Friday-Eve! I feel ya on having a day like that, I've had my share. Right now I am trying to see my vacation on the horizon (it starts next Friday). I am trying to find a good applicant for a temp spot in one of my branches before that and just keeping everyone and everything else in a good place.

Accountability: I added in a little bit of snacking in the evening.

QOTD: We have an elliptical (bought at a yard sale), a treadmill (was on the curb around the block because the people were moving), an exercise bike(it's an old one also bought at a yard sale that doesn't use electricity and the wheel almost acts like a fan), John has one of those inversion machines and we have a boxing thing. I still use the gym for most of my exercise (I'd be too loud here) but enjoy our little workout room.

OMG, good call on the indoor swimming pool! I actually want the kind with the retractable roof so that you can get a tan in summer or stay warm in winter. Not too much to ask, right?

There is actually the swim Spa out there that you can resistant swim in and then it turns into like a 10 man hot tub when your not using it for exercise. Maybe a good place to spend your $5000 winnings. LOL

It's finally not a single digit here in the cornfields of Illinois! It's 20 degrees! But the roads to where we do our long walk and patches of the asphalt at the school are icy so Miss Lily and I are still not doing a long walk in the am as it's not light yet. We will do 3/4 mile in a bit when it's light and another short and long walk later today. We're supposed to be above freezing today so maybe we can get a long walk in tomorrow morning. Feeling really dizzy and nauseous this am as I didn't drink enough water yesterday so that's the goal for today. QOTD I have a bike and a treadmill at home but no room for anything in our little camper. I hate the treadmill though as I'd much rather walk with Lily outside. Accountability was spot on food and stepwise yesterday if I include work steps. Lily and I got 2 short and 1 long walk after work. Weight is 121.2 Here's the food plan for the day B 1 protein pancakes with sugar free syrup L 4 oz seafood salad D 4 oz baked chicken S if needed L&F yogurt shared with Miss Lily of course. Have a wonderful day full of healthy choices everyone! Time for coffee!

Lily and I were actually able to do our 2 plus mile walk after it got light out. We both feel better having gotten our exercise in!

Good morning, everybody!

Happy to see Karen report that it is warming up a little in the southern part of the state. Hopefully that will be the case in Chicagoland as well. For some reason, Seal Team wasn't last on night. I was so disappointed. So, instead, we watched all of the Chicago shows that Marilyn loves (PD, Fire, and Med). I am sure that none of the shows are realistic but Med is ridiculous. Although not a doctor, I am pretty sure that transplants are done by specialists.

QOTD: We have an Expresso bike which we really like. Now that it is too cold and dark to run outside I will be using it much more. We also have a 20 year old treadmill which is mainly used by visitors. I want to get a pull-up bar and rings for the garage, but I am holding off to use that as a reward for something.

Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: May try Freshi

Snack: Jerky

Dinner: Hamburger

Have a great day, all!
