Happy Little Friday! And in my life of crazy ups and downs and I am starting today, UP :) I mean yesterday was still a lot but I had a really nice 'win' at work yesterday that made me feel very good. And I slept really well last night, too, so I am ready for an awesome Thursday.
Also excited to add that my weight still continues to drop, slow and steady. I am down 4.5 pounds since that weird stomach bug a few weeks ago that took my appetite!
QOTD: Do you have any ways to "treat yourself" when you need to be kind to yourself, that are not food related? This is not my strong suit... looking for suggestions!
Food was better yesterday.
B: Protein Coffee
S: Costco Egg Bite
L: ?? not sure - going out with a colleague
D: Aidells Chicken Sausage
- High Weight before LapBand: 200 (2008)
- High Weight before RNY: 160 (2015)
- Lowest post-op weight: 110 (2016)
- Maintenance Weight: 120 (2017-2019)
- Battling Regain Weight: 135 (current)
Good morning and yay for jr Friday!
QOTD - pedicure, new candle or if I really need to treat myself a spa day (usually a massage and body scrub or body wrap).
Not a lot on the agenda today, busy at work and I'm trying to adapt to make some adjustments to my schedule so I can switch around some of my pilates classes. We'll see how the rest of September goes.
coffee plus half and half x 3
taco meat with cheese
filet with blue cheese, I think
Have a great day everyone!

Good mornin JB and everyone.
My appointment went ok yesterday. She upped one med to try and help me sleep. Started it last night and got a whole 22 more minutes of sleep than the previous night. I'm running on fumes. Yesterday I felt like crap from lack of rest so today'll be much of the same I fear. My sleep score was actually lower last night than the previous night. I tried to get a nap in but all I did was lay there. Yesterday I tried to take a serious nap and took two Benadryl and nada. Ugh.
Not much planned for the day. We have to pick the kids up today from school...we'll only have them for less than an hour until my brother gets off of work. We have them until 6 tomorrow and I'm just hoping they are not going to be fighting. Wishful thinking LOL.
QOTD: I'm at a loss for an answer here. I've never had a manicure or a pedicure...never had a massage and I can't now due to the spinal cord stimulator. Sometimes it's making chainmaille, it's something that can relax me.
B: JUST egg, cheese, chicken sausage and coffee x2
S: L&F yogurt
L: not entirely sure what yet
S: 1/2 cup pumpkin spice Cheerios
D: thinking GF fish sticks and some Mexican street corn(without mayo...it's a frozen mix)
Here is an updated picture of the ornaments WhiteDove ordered! The dreamcatchers just need feathers and I need to think up a few more ornaments.
Sometimes life is like sunshine and rainbows ... other times it's a big steaming pile of . . .well you know what.
Just keep swimming!
I stopped using the sleep trackers/sleep score because it felt like too much pressure. I didn't need my fit bit to judge me...or to tell me that my sleeping patterns are sucky. Hopefully the new bed will help you!

I was thinking the same thing - I would be so obsessive about that!

Ugh. 2 more days. I try not to wish away my life but.......
QOTD: i used to do a pedicure but I'm trying to let the nails grown out and not look so damaged. I love to eat out. No dishes!!! But we live far from restaurants. Well, i guess i better figure something out.
went to a steak house last Night. Had grilled chicken and went to have green beans and they tasted really sweet so i left Them. I can't make chicken juicy enough at home to eat so i can only eat It when I'm out.
half a burger
maybe something else. I have some yogurt i should eat but don't want to :)

I am off today. It feels amazing to have absolutely no expectations and nothing to do.
QOTD: pedi, mani, walk my dog, coffee and a good book, take a hot bubble bath with a nice bath bomb, go for a drive and sing as loud as I like..
no menu planned today tbh.
