Good morning all. I'm enjoying a cup of coffee and watching my new kitten chase my older cat around. They are getting along surprisingly well, I'm so pleased. My older cat isn't yet a fan of her getting close while eating, but she'll adjust :D

I have my friend today, I am taking her to a doctor's appointment and then after picking up a different friend for the gym and then going out for a late lunch. Really been craving fish, so we might go to Captain D's for their catfish dinners, so menu is a bit open. I need to stop being lazy and screen shot my menus again to post. I log them, I just haven't posted them!

QOTD: It's football season (Right? I think it is). Do you enjoy sports and go all out for the seasons? What's your favorite aspect.

Breakfast - Oatmeal an egg

Lunch - Fishy fish I hope, so menu is open

Dinner - Chicken salad with green goddess dressing (Have been loving salads lately.)

Snacks - Protein shake, broad beans

E- Cardio at gym, strength training for legs and core.

Good morning! We're considering fostering a brand new pup but worried about how our older two will adjust. The little one needs lots of medical care, so it's really pulling at our hearts. Great to hear about the kitty friendship!!

I'm .3 of a pound away from 100# loss... trying to really push for a clean menu week but fish does sound good... I made some butter garlic shrimp last week my husband went nuts for so I may do that today again.

QOTD: I like watching my nieces and nephews play whatever they're into, but aside from that neither my hubby nor myself care much about sports.

B: Giant Coffee

S: Pecans

L: Roasted Carrots

D: Not sure yet, was planning something with a spaghetti sauce but maybe shrimp

E: None for me today. Have a 12 hour shift and still getting over strep throat.

B: 1/2 cored, toasted bagel with cc

L: idk

D: hoping to get motivation to make taco stuffed peppers but it hasn't happened all week, so.... not optimistic.

Good morning! I should be picking up DS' new kitty from the shelter today. It will be very interesting to see what Justice thinks of it. He keeps taking one of the kitty toys that DS bought and bringing it into his bed.

QOTD: I used to watch a little football and actually began to understand the rules much better over the years than I did back in high school when I went to all the games. But DH can't follow it anymore so we don'****ch very frequently these days.

Good morning,

Im very tired this morning even though I thought I slept good. I forgot to rinsed out my work smocks and hang them to dry last night so I'll have to run to the laundromat to dry them.

Either tonight or tomorrow night,I'm going to look at some kittens. A friend of mine from school had posted last month about some on Facebook so I asked him if he still had any available, he said he had six of them.

Qotd no I'm not a sports fan. I rather see them in person than watch on tv. Baseball is the only one I really understand.

B ham and cheese omelette, string cheese and English muffin

L tuna, cottage cheese and honeycrisp apple

D roasted garlic mozzarella chicken sausage and mixed vegetables

Have a good day

Hi there. We are battening down the hatches for another hurricane. Kids are out of school tomorrow, so looks like l will be working from home.

QOTD: I follow college football and NFL (Carolina Game****s & Pittsburgh Steelers!). Seeing the Steelers play at Heinz Field with my dad last month was really special! Nick is really into basketball so that's on at home throughout the season. Otherwise, I enjoy the olympics and the World Cup which are infrequent.

L - leftover black bean veggie burger

D - roasted veggie pasta with spinach pesto and nut substitute Parmesan

S - protein bar
