Good morning, Menu Team. Happy Monday! Are we all ready??

Yesterday was kind of a mess for me. I woke up with some weird eye issue that really kept me down all day. It resulted in one of my top 10 laziest days of my life. I watched 862 Hallmark Christmas movies in a row (mostly with my eyes shut because they hurt!). I got dressed by changing into different pajamas around 1pm. Yep, it was that day... I'm feeling better today and ready (I guess?) to tackle the day.

Accountability: I told the weekend gang that I jumped off the Keto train (and got run over) on Saturday. It was rough. Yesterday I tried to be 100% but I ended up eating a few things that I shouldn't have. I'm grateful to be back at work today...I packed food that should keep me satisfied, and shouldn't have any other opportunities to mess up.

QOTD: What are some of the pet peeves you encounter every day?

  • I hate when the train has lots of available seats and someone squishes right next to me. Why??
  • The custodian who changes the TP rolls in the women's bathroom at work, puts them on UPSIDE DOWN! Savage!

Good morning, everybody!

I have an early conference call with a client in Europe and woke up in a panic that the manager working for me wasn't invited to the call (meaning I would have to be intimately familiar with all aspects of the project). It turns out he was on the invitation and I was needlessly stressed.

So that's why I am typing this at 4:43.


1) when my shoulder belt gets stuck in the in the car door space so that when I shut the door it makes a crunching noise and doesn't close correctly

2) when I open my car door on a hill and it swings closed again. Especially if I am trying to gather things to carry

3) when people bend the little receptacles on the train seats which are meant to hold train passes/tickets

Breakfast: sausage

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: chicken

snack: light and fit

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

Early one for me too. I have breakfast done and about 6 Miss Lily and I will head out for our first long walk. We will do 2 more later just like we did yesterday.

S if needed L&F yogurt shared with Miss Lily of course! Have a great day everyone!

It sounds like it was either a family or gang issue. So sad.

G'morning JB & menuers,

Julia - sorry for the crummy weekend. Eye issues are the worst. I hope you feel better today.

I had an interesting call on Sat that I need to share with you. As you might know I do mini presentations/talks at my surgeon's seminars. If people ask for more support I give them my phone number. I got a call on Sat from a woman who is scheduled to have surgery next Mon. She is supposed to be on a 2 weeks liquid pre-op diet. She called me on Sat ready to throw the towel saying she can't do it anymore, she doesn't deserve to have surgery, she is starving, etc. I stayed with her on the phone for about an hr and calmed her down. I don't know what possessed me but I offered to do the liquid diet with her so she didn't feel alone. After I got off the phone I told myself WTF? But if I'm a "sponsor" I gotta be all in, right? So I started my liquid diet yesterday. She and I take pics of our foods and exchange pics at meal time. I just hope she can hang in there till next Mon.

QOTD: people at starbucks that stand right by the counter waiting for their order. They call your name, you can step back, especially when I'm zooming in with my mobile order and have to physically move you from the counter to get to my drink!! I know, first world problems.

My meals today :

premier protein (cafe latte - yum)

Fage yogurt

SF jello

Pray for me!
