What's on your Tuesday Menu?
on 11/2/21 1:53 am
Morning my friends! Woof, yesterday was a lot. I didn't have a break at all between 8:30 - 5 (not even a pee break) and today will be the same. I am also running a 2 hour training from 1 - 3 that I haven't written yet. Sigh. But I only need to make it through 3 more days because I am off on Friday for my LASIK surgery!
In other exciting news, my house closed yesterday! It was delayed 3 times for random reasons, so I am so happy it finally happened! Yay! And
QOTD: Are you involved in your local elections? I used to be super involved when I lived in the city. I was a board member of the community council and arts council, and I knew the minutia of every Ward. But I realized yesterday that I am so out of the loop with local elections where I live, to the point that we have a mayoral race today and I don't even know who is running! Yikes. I asked Grim to research it today and I am going to have to take his word on who to vote for.
I was staaaaaarving all morning yesterday. I think it might have been anxiety and not actual hunger but regardless, I ate my a.m. and p.m. snacks by 9:30am, then added a few more snacks that I rummaged from my desk throughout the day.
B: Protein Coffee, Egg & Cheese wrap
S: Nuts & Cheese
L: Pretzels & Cranberry Chicken Salad
S: Pirate Booty
D: Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa
- 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)
Lasik is exciting; really life changing to be able to see!
QOTD - yes, I do get out the vote virtual work but I have no interest in being on any of the boards/commissions/etc, except I did have some interest in being part of the redistricting council but after reading the time commitments, it's something that has to wait for retirement. Colorado believes in full electoral participation and makes it super easy to vote and I received notification that my ballot has been counted and recorded last week so all good there.
I suspect that until I get to the grocery store my menu is going to continue to be a bit play it by ear.
Coffee plus half and half X3; ozery round with pb, I have a small hand chicken green Chile handpie I got at the Scottish festival for dinner, probably a protein bar in there too.
Have a terrific Tuesday!

Good morning, everybody!
Eight and a half hours without a potty break would not be doable for me.
I've been thinking about Mrs. Clouse and, frankly, this seems like an enormous scam. Is there any evidence that children do not like Almond Joy bars? I'm pretty sure that liked them when I was a child. But a few proclamations to first time parents, and before she knows it she has a life annuity of dark chocolate and coconut goo.
Marilyn and my youngest had a good weekend at UAB. She said that my youngest had a million questions that he asked the tour guide during the campus tour, which shocked me.
Today is my last full day at home before I head out west. Kind of a light workout tapering towards Friday. As I return home, Marilyn will be heading East to a tennis tournament in South Carolina. After that, I have only one more travel this year, and Marilyn doesn't have any. I think we are ready to spend some time at home.
Breakfast: Turkey meatballs and cottage cheese
Dinner: Hello Fresh
Have a great day, all!

Good Morning! Yay for LASIK and the condo closing! Yesterday was busy since I'm assisting with a project and payroll started- it was end of the day before I knew it.
QOTD: I'd say I'm in the middle- news is pretty much on every night but I don't research a ton. John follows pretty closely so I can ask him for the condensed version.

Have a great one!
QOTD Not really. There are a lot of career politicians in this area, so one is very familiar with those.
Today is a follow up with my surgeon, it has been almost five months. I have been bouncing between 200 and 202 for two weeks now. I don't remember what my surgery weight was, I was not required to lose any weight. Consult weight was 270 and I might have lost 10 pounds before surgery? I was required to follow a liquid diet for one week prior.
Physical therapy today and Thursday. Next week we will go to the keys to visit family, first time since COVID started, although some family has come to visit me.
No trick or treaters this year. I borrowed some candy from our work stash JUST in case, which I returned the next morning, but saved the lone Almond Joy for my husband. I loved Almond Joys AND Mounds bars as a kid. That teacher definitely had a scam going, but who could blame her?
Menu. Shakes, yogurts and Mongolian Beef, home made. It will still have a lot of salt.
JB Good vibes for your LASIK. I had it done over 20 years ago and it was one of the best things I ever did!
Mernin y'all, happy Taco Tuesday!
QOTD - I research candidates and vote on issues, from the local level all the way up. That's my involvement.
Breakfast - fasting so hot black coffee and water
Lunch - spinach salad, some type of carb to go with it.
Snack - PB&J on Dave's killer bread, pepitas, cherry tomatoes and a snack-sized Kind bar
Dinner - tofu scramble, with Chao cheese on corn
I hope you all have a great day!
Let it begin with me.
