What's on your Saturday menu?

Good morning everyone! Figured I'd start things off for once since I don't see a menu thread yet for today. I'm sure one will probably be posted as I type this though! Lol

Just wanted to get out of the way first that my accountability was bad bad bad yesterday! I basically starved myself all day just so I could have pizza for dinner because I was craving it. It was thin crust with chicken and feta so it wasn't horrible, but wasn't the greatest choice either! Still went over my calories because I really pigged out on that pizza! I don't know if it's because it's that time of month or because this past work week was so stressful.....ugh look at me trying to justify it! Anyway, what's done is done and today I'm back on track! Still have lots of leftover pizza, but I think it's going in the trash. I definitely don't want anymore as I'm still feeling the affects of it this morning.

QOTD: since it's getting to be that time of year again....what is your favorite seasonal food or drink? Mine is definitely the pumpkin pie flavored Greek yogurt in the fall! The toasted marshmallow flavor is good too but I haven't seen it yet. Pre surgery it was all the pumpkin spiced everything at Starbucks and of course all their Christmas flavors! Also loved me some egg nog at Christmas!

B: coffee w/Splenda x 2

B2: built protein bar

L: tuna pouch and a pickle

D: scrambled eggs with salsa

S: L&F Greek yogurt and fruit

Whoops - I knew this would happen! We were typing at the exact same time! I just deleted mine. I'll answer your QOTD and then paste my original post below it

QOTD: pumpkin spice for sure. I've made pumpkin Greek yogurt a couple of times and have had several pumpkin protein shakes already!

here's my post:

Mornin' Weekenders!

It's a beautiful sunny day and only supposed to get up to 75 today. PERFECT! We are taking MIL to a small town about 1.5 hours north of here that was recommended by both my sister and a friend of mine. They have some beautiful waterfalls, and there's not much walking involved (DH and I are OK with walking - not sure MIL is). Other than that, no plans. We're supposed to have a nice streak of weather this week (other than Labor Day - thunderstorms off & on all day), so I hope to get out a LOT since cold weather is on its way!

Accountability was really good again yesterday. We'll have lunch in that town today, so hopefully I can find something safe. I probably should take a protein bar or two with me just in case...

QOTD - feel free to add one

TSS: 5y3m

B: homemade vanilla Greek yogurt with 1/2 diced mango, coffee with half & half

MS: protein shake

L: ??

AS: not sure if we'll be back -- but if so, probably the usual L&F yogurt with raspberries. If we're still out (and probably will be), I'll have my protein bar with me..

D: probably leftover eggplant/chickpea/tomato tagine over 1/2 C of couscous. And some kind of protein - maybe a chicken skewer or a couple of slices of turkey breast

have a great Saturday, everyone!

Good morning! Checking in from afar. Last night our host friend arranged Asian dinner night and taught me about wok cooking and "wok clocks". I made an old time fave of mine, Mongolian Beef. And damnnnnnnn, it was good. I had a bit of a hungry day yesterday, but my weight is steady today. I expected a sodium spike, so far, I am ok. Today is a bit more travel to see my Dad. But it's so freakin hot in AZ it's insane. 113 yesterday.

QOTD: going old days here. My family could not wait until the peppermint ice cream came out for the season. It's easier to get now, but back in the day, we'd start hunting for it in late October. It was the start of the holiday season for us.


B: coffee, 1/2 PP shake, maybe an egg

L: tbd

D: sea bass, roasted vegetables in a white wine cream reduction

Peace, Everyone!

Hey yall, happy saturday!

QOTD - no seasonal drink here, just too much sugar. I guess I would say I stick to my regular black coffee, or at starbucks I get an americano.

Breakfast- fasting, so hot black coffee and water

Lunch- kale, polenta, soyrizo scramble with vegan cheese

Dinner - Jasons Deli. I'll do the fruit, a side salad and maybe a veggie soup.

Have a great day yall!


Let it begin with me.

I don't drink coffee, don't eat pumpkin pie, and eat about two donuts a year. I believe that I have never had anything with pumpkin spice. I had had pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling. Is that the same flavor? I am thinking of something to try. Any suggestions for a non-coffee drinker to try pumpkin spice?

Celestial seasonings tea has a nice pumpkin tea. I actually prefer the pumpkin spice type stuff with tea rather than coffee. I think it's called sweet harvest pumpkin.
