Good mornin everyone...hope today finds you doing well.

Nothing really planned for the day except a few things around the house and maybe some cooking. We got the bakers rack up with the help of my brother so we need to arrange that stuff. Pain is pretty high this morning as I didn't sleep well at all. My bed frame won't stay on the risers we have so I am stuck with the wedge pillow and it doesn't allow for good sleep...for me at least. Hopefully I'll get a nap in sometime today.

QOTD: What is the silliest fear you have?

oh...I hate deep water that is murky! I am afraid something will grab me by the toes LOL

B1: coffee and water

B2: oatmeal, PB2 and 1 tbs mini DG chocolate chips

A1: JUST egg, chicken sausage and some roasted peppers

A2: 2 jalapeños with vegan cheese and 2 slices of bacon

E: Tex-Mex casserole

40 F and 6 foot 1 inches

Learning my new normal, one day at a time.

I registered to watch this Indian film via the university, but I think I have until noon today to watch it, so I guess I'd better get to it. We're leaving later this morning or around noon to go to Milwaukee for a tour of one of the big Victorian cemeteries. I'm looking forward to getting out of town, and this should be interesting. I think DH wants to have lunch en route, but I'd rather eat here or take something along. Last week and the upcoming week were - and will be - hard to navigate foodwise because of various events, so I'd rather eat normally (or better yet, less than usual) today. I have some Zoom thing I signed up for at 6:00. I have no recollection of what it is, other than it was something I was really interested in (you'd think in that case I'd remember...)

QOTD: I don't know that I have any particularly weird fears -- although I sometimes think this pandemic is going to go on forever, or that I might get caught up in some mass shooting, or that I might get dementia. Although given the current state of affairs - and the fact that my father had dementia - those fears aren't all that unrealistic.

B: skyr, half a protein muffin, coffee with half and half

MS: protein shake

L: if we're here, a piece of cheesecake-flavored yogurt pie with blueberry compote. If we're not, I'll take a protein bar or two along with me

AS: protein bar? (we'll be in Milwaukee)

D: ham, a cup of this soup I bought at Aldi's last night - a leftover from German week (it's a lentil chickpea soup with tomato, raisins, apricots, and spices in it - sounded intriguing)

ex: I guess I'd better do some cardio before we leave - some youtube recording....

have a great day, everyone!

Good morning all! Day two of IF for me. Day one was a success though it got difficult there for a bit last night after 8 when my sweet tooth kicked in and I was ready to snack. I didn't give in though and feel much better this morning.

QOTD: fear of driving to new places. I'll drive all day long to places I've been before no problem, but have me drive out of state or somewhere I've never been before and I'll completely freak out and panic! It's so silly, but I've always been that way for some reason.

B: fasting until noon....black coffee, water & hot tea

L: salad w/rotisserie chicken & cottage cheese

D: Roast beef & veggies

S: L&F Greek yogurt & fruit

good morning! It seems I've escaped the dreaded vaccine side effects! Yay me. Today is all about menu planning and organizing. A quick trip to Target. Then dinner with two people I just love, and have not seen in months. But it's at the Cheesecake factory. Have you seen their menu? Yeesh. My plan is for their potstickers, and work the rest of my day around that. I've got a good book to finish, and my husband is going to play baseball. So that will give me an opportunity to sit in a sunny spot in the quiet and finish my book.

QoTD: Bird feet. Seriously.


B: Costco 130 calories chicken breast bites pack, 1/4 C cottage cheese

L: leftover sheet pan chicken meatballs with roasted broccolini, tomatoes and parmesan

D: Pot Stickers

S: beef jerky

I'm off to log this all into MyFitnessPal and see if I can make this happen.

Have a great Sunday. Pease Everyone!

re: Cheesecake Factory menu - yea I was appalled the first time I went there after surgery. I swear they must inject all their items with pure oil or something. How on earth could some of those things have that many calories? (some are understandable - but others - YIKES. How on earth do they prepare those things that they have so many calories?). I ended up getting the lettuce-wrapped tacos. It was the only thing do-able at the time that I could find on the menu. I don't go there anymore - although hopefully they've added a few more items that "work" for people who don't require 4000 calories a day to live..

I was at Virginia Beach in the summer of 1975 about a week after seeing the movie, Jaws. I was floating around on a surfboard and imagined that there was a shark underneath me. Then they announced that the beach had to be cleared due to a shark attack.

The next morning, the newspaper said that the shark attack was some teenagers who cut themselves with broken glass and then yelled they had been bitten by a shark. We did not go back to the beach on that trip. I still sometimes get a strange fear in the ocean.

The fasting is going well and I have a bit more energy. Hope to see the scale drop a bit too.

I remember there being several "shark attacks" and shark sitings in the months after that movie came out. Most turned out to be nothing (i.e,, not sharks). People were just freaked out by the movie...

Peter Benchley, who wrote Jaws, said he wished he had never written it because sharks are not the frightening creatures that he scared us with. There are very few shark attacks.
