What's on your (PHOTO) Friday Menu?
bad eating day yesterday. Even all the exercise I did is not going to make up for that. Oh well - what's done is done, and all I can do at this point is just get back to it today. I had one of those Jimmy Dean's D-Light breakfast sandwiches for breakfast. It's been in my freezer for months. I haven't wanted it in spite of my intentions to eat it, because I almost always want yogurt with fruit sauce in the morning instead (or a piece of yogurt pie). But today, I took the plunge. Wow was that thing filling. I really should eat more things like this - I'm sure I'll not be hungry again for HOURS!
I should have avoided the news this morning like I did yesterday. My blood pressure shot up about 20 points. I feel like I'm living in Zimbabwe and Robert Mugabe is manipulating the election again. I hope they fail big time and this nightmare is over soon...
QOTD: the only thing I've really kicked around is having a facelift since I'm so wrinkly that I look older than I am - or maybe I just look my age after spending years looking younger than I am (because of all the fat). But I have this fear of ending up with slits for eyes or a bizarre-looking mouth that screams "this person had a facelift". It's one thing if there are "issues" with your body that no one can see except for you - but a face? Ugh. No hiding that.
B: Jimmy Dean D-light breakfast sandwich (egg white, turkey sausage, cheese, whole wheat English muffin), coffee with half & half
MS: protein shake
L: 2 oz ham, half of a "Seasons Choice Harvest Grain Bowl" (also been in my freezer for months - lots of beans in that thing - should be filling...)
AS: probably yogurt with raspberries or fruit compote
D: 1/2 vegetable "burger" on 1/2 slim bun, small sweet potato
have a great day, everyone!
My mom had a facelift a few years ago and had the same fear as you. She pretty much threatened her surgeon that if she looked like that she would haunt him lol. So she ended up with such a minor facelift that it wasn't really noticeable at all. She just looks less tired, I think. No one even noticed. So if you ever take the plunge, be careful what you wish for :)
I think the key is to find a really good plastic surgeon who does a lot of face lifts, including face lifts for older people and people who lost weight. In both cases, IMO, the skin is more stretch and relatively thin with very little fat under the skin. I had a face lift and i just looked less tired, more relaxed. I had eyelid surgery before my face lift and that limited the procedure.
A good plastic surgeon who understand what we are trying to achieve and who does really realistic procedure is a key to a natural looking face pot op face lift. I had my face lift at 55. Old enough to have just one, but young enough that healing was very good.

Good morning JB and Menuers,
That pig is so cute. I would hug him and squeeze him then eat his legs and belly. LOL I like pork way to much. Especially bacon.
So I was notified yesterday of 2 positive cases of Covid-19 in my company but I do all the right things with hand washing, wearing my mask, and social distancing so I hope I am safe. The idiot that called off sick on Wednesday walked right back in the office yesterday and did not get tested. I am walking around with a spray bottle of Alcohol and I been spraying it on everything. I do have a private office that no one enters but me so I should still be good. The 2 positive cases are in another part of the building from me so my anxiety is still in check. The owner did send out a new Company Covid policy so I hope people follow the guidelines.
In other news we did finally make it to Friday and we have another great day of weather here in Pittsburgh. It was 53° for my run this morning. Go global warming your rocking my running game.
QOTD: Oh this is not easy. Beside some plastics and a new set of boobs I am not good at changing my look. I have had the same hair style for at least the last 24 years. I got every 7 weeks to the day and get the same cut and color. I guess you can say I am a creature of habit.
Accountability: I had a RGF Chicken crust supreme pizza that I switched out for dinner and I was so full I had no room for snacks. For lunch I added some Cauliflower stalks that are puffed vegie snacks. Only 1 g sugar and 18 g carbs for 24 pieces and 140 calories.

I love that tree! Your husband is very handy!
Good morning! It is cool and crisp here. I have my fake coffee and my portable heater on trying to warm up my office. We have concrete walls, so even in Southern California, I get really cold in here! I just got out of my first meeting of the day and it was to give a substantial pay raise. That is a great way to start the day!!! And we have not much planned for the weekend, so I think we are going to try out a bike route that takes you completely around the bay. It's 12 miles of relatively flat, mostly beautiful ride. https://www.sandiego.org/articles/biking/bike-path-mission-b ay.aspx?utm_source=BLOG&utm_medium=ORGANIC&utm_campaign=SAN_ DIEGO_MAGAZINE
My photos this week are of my Cricut project. I did about 12 of them, and Lordy, did I underestimate the time it would take!
B: hb egg, cottage cheese
L: pumpkin soup with pork belly
D: something with ground beef. Need to go grocery shopping again.
QOTD Tattoo. I'd really like one, but my husband is really against tattoo art. So out of respect for him, I haven't. It's a trade off I can live with.
