What's on your Tuesday menu?
Good morning everyone! Hope the day is treating you well so far.

Chrissy, praying that your DH's surgery goes well today!

yesterday's Mah Jongg game was rescheduled to this morning at 8:00. At least I'm up and have been for awhile. I seem to need at least an hour to ease into my day. So anyway, I have that plus classes this morning - nothing else going on. It's supposed to rain off and on all day, so I guess I'm pretty much stuck in the house. Boo. Tomorrow I have my first COVID vaccine in a town about an hour away. I've been trying to nab an appt in my county for days, but every time some clinic opens up some slots, they're all snapped up in like two minutes. I swear people must be on their computers refreshing sites all day long until they get something. It's like some big rock concert is coming to town and tickets are sold out within two minutes of becoming available. Oh well, at least I have an appt scheduled. And maybe the drive will be nice. Gets me out of the house for the morning, anyway.
I'm feeling bloated again this morning. I hate this. It's so weird to go to bed hungry and wake up feeling like a bloated mess, thinking I never want to eat again. I need to remember this in the evening when I'm tempted to eat something. Oddly, I only had two SF popsicles last night, and my overall calories for the day weren't horrible. So....???
oh - that woman I met for the first time yesterday. She was pretty nice. Not sure if we immediately clicked, but still, it was enough that I'm sure we'll get together again. Oddly, she never mentioned she was a physician or that she went to Yale (I knew these things because I'd checked her out on the internet before I contacted her - I just wanted to make sure she was "safe"). I guess she was afraid of sounding like an elitist or something? Although in this town it's not unusual to be an Ivy League grad, and I have other friends who are/were doctors. But she's new in town (well, she grew up here but moved away when she went to college and then lived in California for decades), so she probably isn't aware of the demographics around here. I'm meeting some other new person tomorrow for coffee (provided it doesn't rain). Hopefully that'll go well, too. And this weekend, that woman who's a Presbyterian minister in Atlanta will be moving here. She'll be the main minister at one of the big downtown churches. We have a mutual friend, and we've been "talking" on the internet off & on for a couple of months. So I'm looking forward to meeting her, too.
B: I may just have a protein shake since I'm feeling fat this morning. Plus coffee with half & half (already had that)
MS: plain Greek yogurt with cranberry/cherry compote
L: 1 serving of a "sweet kale" salad kit plus 1 Costco chicken skewer
AS: protein muffin OR L&F yogurt with a light English muffin w/ cream cheese
D: 1 Costco chicken skewer, tomato, 1/4 C chickpeas, cucumber with lemon/tahini dressing
ex: some kind of (youtube) cardio
have a great day, everyone!
Congratulations. You deserve it. I had mine done a few years ago, and recovery was a ***** but I am glad I had it done.
I look less tired.

Yikes. I told myself after my second body contouring surgery that I was NEVER going to do this again, but here I go... I was hoping the face wouldn't be too bad, but I'm afraid it will be. I know in the end I'll be glad I did it, though. My other two surgeries were worth it, even though I didn't think so those first few weeks after!
