What's on your Monday menu?
This is how I feel about all these before and after things, lol. Perfect for a Monday!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! JB, we will miss your memes and leadership but good for you for looking at what is causing stress and making changes!! And W2G on the loss! You continue to inspire!
qotd - what fictional character has had the most influence on you? For me, it's Pollyanna from the old children's books. I made a focused effort as a child to be more positive. Now it's part of my DNA.
I have a long day today, with evening one one ones with my Asia team so I'll sneak out for a walk around 4 in between sessions, that will be my exercise.

Hey Jen, so now we know where PartlyPollyanna came from!
I am so happy about the Brady/Tampa SuperBowl win. I am generally not a big sports fan, but this one was kind of close to home literally here in Florida and with Brady/Gronk. I did some SuperBowl eating, but it is mostly gone except for some football whoopie pies which I am going to pretend aren't there.
Today I think Mike and I are taking a field trip to Jupiter Beach (last week we went to Cocoa Beach). I like to explore new places and he has never done so here in Florida so we get to experience new places together.
QOTD: I don't really have a good answer to this. I do remember reading about Madame Curie and wanting to be a doctor afterwards (though her degree was actually in Physics), but I ended up scrapping that goal ultimately.
TSS: 4 years, 10 months
B: Coffee!!! Scrambled eggs and cottage cheese
L: lunch out - probably salad or fish
D: Chicken and veggies
S: nut thins and cottage cheese or almonds, NOT whoopie pies

QOTD - this is such a good question! I need more time on this, LOL!
Breakfast - fasting so hot black coffee and water
Lunch - soyrizo and papa scramble, toast with avocado butter
Snack - apple with peanut butter and some hemp seed/chia seeds sprinkled (need the extra nutrients)
Snack - fruit smoothie with kale, papaya blend, etc.
Dinner - Not sure but it's been vegan hot dogs with vegan cheese past two nights (because it's easy) so it won't be that! LOL
I hope you all have a great day!
Let it begin with me.
Good Morning! Thanks for starting us off. I had a pretty laid back weekend partly due to sinus issues from allergies. I mostly lazed on the couch Saturday and then errands yesterday.

Have a great one!
I had my first COVID vaccine this morning. It is Pfizer and first of two. About an hour after the vaccine, my sinuses were suddenly completely clear. They are always congested from October to May. It might be a coincidence, so I will see if this is just temporary.

I had a lovely weekend - Saturday I took the dog for a nice long off leash walk - it was very cold but she doesn't seem to mind what so ever. Sunday my partner and I went for a nice long car ride.. we use that time to have some of the best discussions, sans distractions!
QOTD: I'm gonna have to think about this one!
I'm on afternoon shift today so I find my meals get all messed up.. but here goes!
B: Fairlife Latte
L: 1/2 Greek yogurt bagel (homemade.. so good) with egg salad
PMS: skyr yogurt, PB and berries
D: 2oz shredded chicken, 15g light cheese and 3 Boston lettuce leaves
ES: 1/2 premier protein w 1/2c decaf

Learning my new normal, one day at a time.
I may do a yoga class over Zoom this morning. I still have three "punches" left on the pass I bought (it's the same woman who led the yoga retreat in India that I went on last year). I've really fallen out of the regular yoga habit the last few months and probably need to get back to it. Otherwise, there's online Mah Jongg later this morning and then a Zoom meeting at 6:00 for the volunteer organization I volunteer for (as a legal guardian - although my ward passed a couple of months ago and I haven't been assigned a new one yet). So not much - however, I have a TON of stuff to work on for classes, and a couple of things that I need to do for my civic organizations.
accountability - I've been great with exercise the last couple of weeks. However, I'm still at the top - or slightly over - my calorie limit most days, though, so I need to really focus on this. It hasn't been horrible, but I'm not going to lose weight this way (would like to lose 10 lbs, but I'd be happy with five)
QOTD: boy - nothing is coming to mind at all. I rarely read fiction (I'm a nonfiction reader) - although I did when I was a kid - but nothing is jumping out at me...
B: plain Greek yogurt with blueberry compote, coffee with half & half
MS: protein shake with some frozen strawberries thrown in (may flip flop this with breakfast - I've had some success doing this...)
L: 2 Costco chicken skewers dipped in ranch Greek yogurt
AS: protein muffin or else L&F yogurt with skinny bagel
D: turkey salad or 1/2 a Beyond Burger in a slim bun. If the latter, then probably a salad with light dressing, too
have a great day, everyone!
Good morning everyone.
what a long weekend. My weight is up...no surprise with what I ate yesterday. I made myself a coconut pie that was gluten, dairy and egg free. Holy crapola was it good. It will be my special occasion dessert from now on. I got my birthday presents early. My mom bought me a Fitbit versa 2 and my brother got me a plushie octopus and money. My actual bday is Thursday but we did it early. I'll be making myself some low calorie shrimp priew wan for that day and some cauliflower rice.
No big plans for the day. We have the kids today. I'm hoping to hear back about the appointment with the neurosurgeon for the spinal cord stimulator. I was in a lot of pain yesterday. Just totally exhausted and just blah.
qotd: samwise gamgee from the lord of the rings. I read LOtR in middle school and knew instantly he was the true hero of that trilogy. I love him as a character.
b: JUST egg, sausage crumbles, toast, banana and coffee
l: 2 tacos with vegan cheese and grapes
d: cod fillet with a small side salad
s: popcorn, applesauce and a chai tea
