What's on your Sunday Menu, RNYers?

Good morning, weekenders!

Ok, my accountability was just **** yesterday. I ended the day close to 1800 calories and almost 100 carbs!!!! Probably in the top 3 worst post ops days I have had... I haven't stepped on the scale--I don't want to know. I think I want to give myself 24 hours before I face it.

I had such good intentions when I posted my menu! But I came down to make breakfast and remembered the leftover pizza, and thought, "Ok, just have that, then be good for the rest of the day". Well, first of all, I logged that after I ate it, and found that I ate my entire calories for the day before 7am. Great... Then I did some baking and licked the bowl a few too many times... Then Grim made 3 trays of bacon! I ate about 4 pieces. THEN, we found out that Grim's neice had a cheerleading comp nearby so we went at the last minute, then went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse, afterwards. YIKES. SO basically, if I am the dog in today's meme, I went with "finish strong".

QOTD: About what percentage of the time do you stick **exactly** to your menu plan? And has that changed, the longer you have been post-op? I was so vigilant. I planned and ate to the calorie, about 90% of the time in my first 3 years. Last year really screwed me up. I was too tired to do good planning and even when I did plan, my day never went as I intended, so I got too used to saying "screw it". This year I find that I am mostly following my plan, but it feels way to rare that I follow it perfectly like I used to. I make on the fly substitutions (sometimes good and sometime bad). ........sigh.......... I want my resolve back.

Morning pouch peeps! I'm relaxing in bed with a yogurt, granola bar and banana. I'm in post run recovery mode. i did my 1/2 marathon yesterday, 2:37 was my time. I put in my grocery order early this morning and will pick them up at 2pm. Before then I'll get my nails gone and go to the gym. We'll put up our tree later today. Next weekend we'll be in New Orleans for our anniversary, can't wait.

Qotd- interesting that you bring this question up JB. I'd say I stick to my planned menu 70% of the time- but I generally only plan out breakfast, lunch and most of the time, snacks. Dinner is typically a wildcard- but that's not working in my favor. So my 2020 resolution is going to be 'log it before you eat' it. I am too often surprised when i finally tally up the day after I've eaten.

m1: granola, banana and yogurt

m2: eggs, ham, cheese stick

m3: roast beef, veggies

m4: a maybe-- not sure what.

exercise: gym today- stair stepper and short run and weight (upper body)

Good morning, all!

I also had pizza for breakfast yesterday. Hopefully, its not a new trend. But my son had ordered it on Friday. I think that he orders pizza mainly because Marilyn would not allow him to order only cheesy bread sticks. But he orders the pizza and cheesy bread sticks, immediately eats the cheesy bread sticks and leaves the pizza in the fridge. That doesn't mean I have to be the one that eats it, but we are on this website for a reason.

Do as we say, not as we do Madison Rose, LOL.

The reheated pizza was actually pretty good, I have to say. Fortunately, we ran outside in the cold and did 90 Burpees yesterday, so hopefully most of the damage was burned off.

My son is off to Waco to visit his sister at college this weekend, Marilyn just drove him to the airport. He is accepted to Baylor also, but I don't think he is going to go there. Maybe the vast number of girls (60/40) will change his mind.

Today is reading and gym mostly. I may do a little work tonight to get a head start on the week.

QOTD: Zero. But having a plan keeps me from not eating and then being ravenously hungry and eating everything in sight. So, if I plan to eat chicken at the cafeteria for lunch and eat pork instead, that is not a big deal to me.

Breakfast: Chaffles

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Bratwurst

Snack: Light and fit

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

Jim, did your son decide to apply at Mines? I was up in Golden a few weeks ago for a concert, I forgot what a cute town it is.

Yes, he should hear from them around December 15th. I think that he really liked the school and the area, so we will see whether he gets accepted. I think its pretty competitive for admissions.

Haha pizza sounds so good too! Haven't had that in over a year. Well I did bad all by myself last night. I blame the all liquid diet I was attempting.....I was doing good up until the very end when I consumed half a bag of popcorn. Ugh!

Sounds like you had a productive day, even with the food challenges!

i had a long drive, the got to my sisters, played some monopoly with the kids (capitalized on sibling rivalry to WIN) and then hung out chatting with my sis, her bf and some friends.

today we have the grocery run and family dinner (Shannen is making her chicken enchilada casserole, yum) and my niece asked me to watch The Shining with her to get ready for Dr Sleep on Tuesday. We also plan on a Trivial Pursuit battle!

qotd - I'm not great. I have been thinking about switching my accountability/menu to the review of the day before to make me more accountable.

menu today is coffee, yogurt, probably some cheese for lunch and then the casserole for dinner. Yum!

have a wonderful Sunday everyone

I edited because I apparently made up a whole different qotd in my head and answered that, lol. I'm getting more coffee now
