Happy Little Friday! Nothing new for me here... I did have some good "wins" at work and mostly made that deadline (YAY!) but my self care is still on the struggle bus. Eating and sleeping still elude me.
QOTD: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I was thinking about this last night... I LOVE everything about my life and hope it will all stay relatively the same, but I need to figure this work life balance thing out. I don't want to be in my 50s working at this pace and never sleeping! What a waste, right?
I was too busy to go out to lunch yesterday so I just ate a chomp meat stick at my desk. And I was too tired for real food last night and let Grim make me dot dogs! YUM! But not the most balanced day...
B: Protein Coffee
S: Costco Egg Bite
L: Boost Protein Shake
S: Apple & Cheese Stick & Almonds
D: Trader Joe's Eggwich (breakfast for dinner!)
- 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)
quick post as I have to head to the office and I didn't actually get anything ready to go to the office yesterday.
qotd - not that much of a planner, but hopefully living in well vaccinated, post covid world!
usual coffee plus half and half
Skyr or protein bar
Meeting for mexican, probably green chile or a taco

we had a change go in last night so i was up working later. i did have wine but i didn't have 'extra' snacks with it. so that is good
QOTD:I want to pay off all the rest of the debt in the next year, sell this barn house next year, and decide where to live and be there. I also want to travel as much as possible and stay healthy and lose this last bit of weight. I wouldn't mind being one of those back to back cruisers when possible just need a very good dog sitter.
I made chicken n dumplings last night, had 2 of them witth my chicken.
egg whites/fake ground beef crumbles/cheese
unsure on dinner, need to check the picklist.
i'm running low on splenda also so prob need to make a run.
Good Morning! Happy Friday-Eve! Well, if all goes well we will be back home today. I'm not going into the office today but have to be on a Zoom call this morning and available as needed to help my partner but aside from that I'm hoping I'll be putting the fridge and cupboards back in order.
QOTD: I think I'll be working at the dealership but in a different role. And, Em will be most likely be closing out her first part of college, wow!
My menu will be roughly the same, but I'm craving something like Chipotle so maybe that at some point. I did my 5k garage run and calf muscles are holding up. I have been forgetting to update you all on my Stop Soldier Suicide 100 mile challenge....I'm at 127 right now.
I hope you all have a great day!
Good morning y'all, Happy Friday Eve!
QOTD - Oooh this is a good one! In 5 years I will be 52 years old! I hope to still be doing what I am doing now (workwise) but more settled and knowledgeable in my role. I love the organization I work for. I aspire to continue to work to be a better more evolved mom and better daughter, working through my codependency and setting boundaries. I am definitely a work in progress! I still have another 20 years of working, so just keep eating as healthy as possible, working towards being active, and taking care of my husband and our relationship. It's a lot! Good QOTD!
Breakfast - Fasting, so hot black coffee and water
Lunch - Ugh yesterday was our potluck and lots of desserts. I've put on four pounds with new meds and I'm not happy about it. I'm going to look for a salad today I suppose.
Dinner - kids this weekend! I think I'm going to make vegan spaghetti with Impossible burger, and cheesy garlic bread and a side salad.
I hope you all have a lovely day!
Let it begin with me.

Good mornin everyone.
Off to see my PCP this morning and boy I'm not looking forward to it. My pain clinic wants me to get a handicap placard and I have to go through my PCP. That's embarrassing for me. Walking is starting to get harder and harder. I forgot to fast but he'll probably test my A1c soon if not today. I'll likely have to start a med for diabetes. I know the numbers have not been great. My weight is way up. I'm just a complete and utter mess.
I did make a find at the thrift store Tuesday. They had a K-Fee system coffee maker...brand new in the box. It makes espresso and I'm really excited for it. The pre made pods are a bit expensive so I got a little metal pod to reuse. I love adding shots to my coffee and lattes. Simple thing to be excited about but I can't wait to get the pod.
qotd: hopefully in less pain and living a fuller life.
B: gingerbread slice with a tsp of honey...coffee before
L: autumn squash soup with cheese
S: coffee, L&F yogurt and ???
Sometimes life is like sunshine and rainbows ... other times it's a big steaming pile of . . .well you know what.
Just keep swimming!
Don't let Being embarrassed stop you from getting something you need. If a HC placard Makes it easier for you to do the things you need and want to do and you qualify for it then get it. If you feel you don't need it on a particular day or stop, then you don't use it. But you'll have it if/when you need it...and if people make you feel uncomfortable or bad about it, F-them. They don't know your situation and their opinion is meaningless.
