Oh hey, friends. What's up? Happy Halfway Day! I would like for this week to be over please. Nothing bad is happening, I just really need to unplug for a day or so and it can't come fast enough. I have daydreams of just laying in the hammock and reading a good book all day.

We had a nice night at the ball game last night. The weather was absolutely perfect! I can't remember ever having a stretch of weather this nice--temps in the low 80s, full sun, no humidity and a light breeze. Perfection. A few more lovely hours, but then the rain is coming :(

QOTD: What's your favorite raw vegetable? I love snap peas. Grim's friend is a vegan and he says snap peas are so bad for you that you might as well have M&Ms. If that's true, I will just take the M&Ms, tyvm, but I don't think its as bad as he thinks it is. My second favorite raw veggie is celery because I think the cold crunch is refreshing.

Accountability: Meh, I did the minimum for steps - 5875. I'll get a lot more today because of lots of meetings around campus. I was too busy to eat a real lunch yesterday, so I grabbed a protein bar between meetings and I had 2 chicken tenders at the game last night.

  • protein coffee
  • egg white bites
  • beyond meatballs & asparagus
  • ?? if we're home I will have a turkey / salsa quesadilla, but we might go to another game.

I usually look forward to my relaxing days but dreading today. I have a: colonoscopy tomorrow. Today is liquid diet And tonight I have to drink that gallon of yucky stuff..

II have to I have to do the gallon Because I have kidney disease. Can't wait for tomorrow to be over. We have had great weather too. Rain is on the way.

Welp, my head just exploded. Grim has a friend who is vegan??? How does this happen??? And how horrified is he by Grim's diet lol?

Q: hmmm I would say mini cucumbers. The teeny tiny kind without seeds. I love them. I eat them just with salt or with ranch or with a ranch dip made from Greek yogurt and a ranch packet. Yum. I also like sugar snap peas! Why are they bad for us?! I would not touch a piece of raw celery...it's stringy and just not my thang!

Today is HOPEFULLY the end of an hvac replacement saga that's been going on for months. I have needed to give the hvac guys access to four different neighbors units to go in and cut their walls to look for a leak. Suffice it to say it's a very expensive scheduling nightmare. Swing a chicken that they solve it today so I can shell out more money having a drywaller go back to every unit to patch up their walls. Ugh.

Eats today are spicy chicken sausage, the quesadilla I didn't have yesterday and a red leaf salad with burrata. Gettin' fancy on Hump Day! I'll go to the gym after work. I'm in a plateau of almost 3 weeks with no loss (travel, stress, visitors, all the excuses) so I have to buckle down and keep plugging away to see the scale go down.
Have a great day, all! I hope you have a fun and productive day with tons of steps!

lol, I have friends that eat mayo AND fish. We love our friends for our differences....but might do careful planning before going out for meals.

I have a friend in Alaska that puts mayo and American cheese on salmon, and it is actually very good.

Since I don't eat fish or mayo, I will take your word for it. I do love a good melty slice of American cheese-product, lol
