Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Friday Eve!

I am getting a late start today, I just could not get out of bed this morning. It was so windy all night and sleep wasn't not good - crazy dreams and exhausting.

QOTD - as you may gather from the photo, I am not a fan of kale. Pre-op/Post-op, hate kale. What's something you didn't like pre-op that you like now.

Mine are Cottage Cheese and exercise!

My trainer used to tell me to have a bit of cottage cheese before bed for a protein boost and to help with muscle recovery, but I never did it because ugh, cottage cheese. I think I tried it after seeing the carbmaster on Emmiepie's menu and now it's a staple!

menu today is

b - cottage cheese, .5 oz hazel nuts

l - 4 oz ever roast deli chicken

d - 3 oz burger patty with slice of cheese

S - light and fit

i have a cardio pilates and a stretch/balance class tonight.

have a great day!

Good morning, everybody!

It's really dark and cold here also, Jen. I think it's just a good morning to stay in bed and be snuggly. I'm in the 7:30 class at the gym tonight because 6:30 AM was not happening. It's probably for the best, I have some blisters on my hands and they could use the time to heal.

I thought that I was alone in the Mens's room at my Board function last night and I hear this loud "Hello Cutie." After an initial moment of panic, I decided that no matter how cute I may have looked in my new sweater that I was not going to respond. It turned out to be it just another guy talking on his cellphone while at the urinal. I am sure his significant other was thrilled about that.

Work seemed to start getting busy yesterday, so I think my beginning of year lull may be coming to a close.

QOTD: Eating dinner for breakfast. After surgery, I rarely eat anything in the morning that is considered a traditional breakfast food. Occasionally a chaffle.

Breakfast: bratwurst

snack: protein bar

Lunch: pork

snack: nuts

dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!

I didn't know men talked on the phone at the urinal!! Really hope they don?t drop the phone!

The dinner for breakfast thing resonates ? it?s funny how we grow up thinking X belongs in a certain meal and then post op that changes...turkey breast for breakfast, sounds great! (For pre-op me, the only dinner thing that I would have had for breakfast was pizza or dessert, lol)

Morning coffee remains sacred, however.

lots of people in Japan eat salad at breakfast (but not at other meals) - but then, salad is something they adopted from the West. And in some countries I've been to, they really don't have special breakfast foods - they eat similar things at every meal.

if you can heal blisters in 12 hours your amazing. (Sells wound care for a living) Wrap them so they dont get worse and have a great workout. (if they break triple antibiotic cream we need no infection.)

I don't know you in person, but I could imagine your look when you heard "hello cutie" and then your face when you decided "I'm not gonna answer no matter how cute I am"....it will make me laugh for the rest of the day. I might come across crazy for bursting into laughter for no reason but that's OK.

And eeew, for answering the phone while at the urinal.
