Hey Everyone! I am going for a "Flashback" Photo Friday today :)

First up, Grim looking extra sexy, 3 years ago in Rhode Island!

Then (same trip) a pic of me, Maryann, and Cynthia enjoying the water!

Yesterday was a good day in the office. I got a lot done and I am feeling more organized, thankfully, then I came home and took Grim out for a nice birthday dinner. Today I have a short day! Vaca starts early. I will be out at 1pm, then Grim and I are taking a little trip down to RI for an Antique Tool Auction and a Lobster Roll.

QOTD: How did you name your pet(s)? We adopted two kittens from the same litter and wanted to have related names. We love The Princess Bride, and we originally thought we would have Buttercup and Westley but when we found out Buttercup was not a Buttercup, lol, we changed the names to Fezzik and Inigo ;)

My accountability has been all over the place this week... I really haven't done a great job with my new plan to eat more a more balanced diet. I can make all kinds of excuses about the extreme heat, and not feeling well, and birthdays, etc... but frankly I am just not being compliant. I am not eating a ton of calories, but the ones I am eating are not the best, and I keep going all day without eating then eating everything in the evening! I need to make a better effort to be more balanced next week. But today, I really don't have a full plan and I am not going to pretend I do!

Eggs for breakfast, then all kinds of TBD, and end the day with a lobster roll.

Good morning menu friends.

I'm working yet again on very little sleep. Lots of pain during the night and lots of muscle cramps. The last one I had to jolt out of bed to get my foot to straighten up. I hate those!

We got up to 103 yesterday. It's only supposed to be 91 today but more humidity. It was for us fairly high humidity yesterday too...sooooooooo sticky!

Not sure what today will hold. I need to pick up some prescriptions. Hopefully get a nap or two!

I've decided to talk to my psychiatrist about the binge eating disorder more. I need a bit of help with this. I'd like to try vyvanse but I'm not sure she'll agree with it. We'll see I guess. It doesn't hurt to try. I just need some help for a while.

Food today is totally unplanned. I have no idea. I made some gazpacho yesterday that was so so very good and refreshing in the heat. I see myself making it more and more. It was my first time ever having it let alone making it.

Here is my throwback photo and a meme that speaks to me so much...LOL. I think I must of been around 20 or so in the photo.

Just saw the QOTD!

Frankie our big pup crooned like Frank Sinatra soon after we got him, Frankie stuck! Skippy our little female chihuahua actually skips sometimes when she is running. My grandma wanted to name her baby but she passed soon after we got her and we named her skippy.

Cats. Percy got his name from the Percy Jackson movies/books. He was supposed to be my moms cat. Opal got her name from the stone. Her eyes have a kind of flash that reminded me of the stone opals.

Merlin our 21 year old man kitty got his name from the wizard. He was super awkward and still is.

Good Morning!

the pup and I are enjoying some cool air out on the balcony this morning. I just got back from my run and this is where I like to cool down and rehydrate!

It's been a long week and I'm pumped it's Friday! I have a chrio apt today (yay) because my hip/lower back have really been bugging me the last few days!

QOTD: my ex and I were on a kick of 'A' names..we had gotten a black kitten and named him Ace.. turns out my cat allergy was awful and we had to rehome him.. so when we found my dog on Kijiji, on the hour ride to where she lived we decided to call her Abby.. so she's Abby... or Abigail if she's being a **** head.

Your day sounds great JB! I hope everyone has a quick Friday and a good weekend ahead!

Today I have a 4 meeting, run out for my mammogram, then try to make it back for two more meetings. I can do the last two from the phone if I have to so it should all work out. Good weekend ahead though - my Saturday TRX lesson, then a massage and Sunday I'm doing a two pilates class series and then going to see a play...in PERSON!! It's a rock version of Alice in Wonderland at one of our local theaters.

QOTD - I don't have pets because in the before times I traveled 3-4 weeks a month and that's not fair to a pet. A few years ago, I managed to troll my whole family by telling them I had adopted Pippin and Poe (from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, respectively) because I was tired of not having pets and since I got a cat and a dog they could keep themselves entertained....I probably had 17 texts even from the teenagers going "aunt jennie, that may not be the best idea" or my sister's "what are you thinking"....then I sent the picture in my flashback photos below. The other one is from when we got the first mask orders last year...I may have been a bit too literal.

Oh, I guess I will be going grocery shopping sometime this weekend too.

Menu today is

coffee + half and half X 3

Greek yogurt with almonds and currants

after that, I'm out of ideas - maybe a barbells bar or some cheese and then something for dinner.

Ex - I'm feeling lazy this morning so might give myself a rest day or do something low key.

Have a great day and weekend everyone!

(they were halloween decorations but I keep them as gargoyles at my front door -- the amazon people always put the packages behind them, like they are guarding them, lol).

It's chilly here in Boston. Hopefully it warms up for the weekend because I packed light.
