What's on your Tuesday Menu?
on 5/16/23 2:59 am
Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! My leg is still on the mend, which is great. It's still very sore but the swelling continues to go down, so I know it's getting better. Last night we were watching a nail-biter tv episode on the couch and Grim kept getting excited and kept smacking my knee. No more cliff-hangers until I am fully healed, lol!
Nothing exciting on the docket today. I will get a Costco delivery, spend some time reading on the hammock, and if my leg feels better, I hope to get some organizing done.
QOTD: Related to the meme today--do you have a plan for the Zombie Apocalypse? I have no desire to try to get away from a zombie. Bite me, and I will join you wandering around and eating all day. It seems fine, haha.
B: Protein coffee & egg bites
L: Deli turkey, cheese & carb smart wrap
S: Balanced break
D: Veggie Burger

I am Sooo glad the swelling is going down, Julia! Stay off of it! You're probably like me where you jump up and go "I'm fine!" And immediately overdo it. I'll ask Grim to chain you to the basement radiator if you don't continue to relax!
QOTD: Not to be all "grim" about it but I don't think we are in for a zombie apocalypse. I am far more worried about a civil war between the rich and the poor. And just bad behaviors by humans in general. And yet still, no plan.
What's on my menu today....FOOD! I haven't eaten since Sunday since my colonoscopy and endoscopy is in 3 hours. I had to do my first prep from 6-9 and then went to bed and set the alarm for 3 am to do prep #2. I haven't figured out what I'm eating the second I get home but I'm hungrrrrry. Yesterday was chicken broth and lemonade only. Maybe olive bites from TJs I still have in the freezer!
I may even treat myself to pizza for dinner.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday. Hey, it is better than Monday!

I'd rather go through a zombie apocalypse than colon prep.
I'd hate a Civil War, unless it was poor against rich. It's overdue.

Some doctors allow some food the day before. Honestly it was the effect of the SuTab pills that were worst than the fasting! Can't wait til this is far in the rear view mirror.
oh I agree, the haves have more and more and more and more while the have nots have less. The real crime here is how my company's CEO has $540,000,000 in shares of my company.

You are literally getting it at both ends! Hope the day goes well and you get something yummy when you get home. I'd go for the pizza, sticking to your broth and lemonade diet, you earned it!

I think if Grim chained Julia to a radiator in the basement- he would have to go into WITSEC, BEFORE someone would let her free. You too for recommending it. Just saying...

Hope all your procedures go/have gone well! The colon prep sounds terrible.
