    Morning all - happy Wednesday!

    I’ve started the year out well with exercise and keeping my calories under goal....until last night. Crappy day at work meant emotional eating at night. At least it was intentional - I knew what I was doing. :smile: Ah well, “forgive myself” and move on to today.

    Congrats to Saltine on the engagement. Can’t wait to hear more details as they unfold!

    Implants - been there. Painful but not as bad as I feared. Good luck!

    Waves to all,

    Tess

    Good morning Sara and Tess~~

    I'm in the NYC apartment, and the cupboards are bare.
    Maybe I'll get some boneless chicken thighs; that would provide a few good meals.....

    Yesterday, I walked 2.3 miles to and from the Apple store. Laptop is out of its coma and working properly. Yay.

    Hi Justin - welcome!!

    Sara - Wow you got in a lot of steps today. Good for you.

    I have made it to almost 8:30PM and have eaten only healthy stuff today. The peanut butter was a bit overdone, but not awful. I need to measure!!!

    THURSDAY

    Good morning,

    Got call from someone checking in. He had to take another call so it was a short call - our company actually has a job title (saw it over a year ago in the job opening) that he might want to keep an eye out for - so I will let him know. Never know where your next job comes from

    I like greeting cards and bought sets of them. Put all the sets into a big box and threw away the boxes they came in. I now have a new drawer to fill...... Note to self - check box before buying more cards......

    Korean beef with rice and salad on menu in cafe today.

    Lana - Peanut Butter is a caloric bomb, but at least it has nutrition - Twinkies?? Not so much >:)

    Well, I messed up this morning. I've been resisting all week, but today I had a Mrs. Sullivan's pecan pie for breakfast. Calorie wise, not so bad. Carbs=three days' allowance. Not gonna beat myself up about it. I made the conscious decision to eat it. Truthfully, it was good, but not as good as I remember.

    Lunch will be 3 oz albacore tuna, 1 avocado, 2 tbsp sour cream, 2 tbsp Olive oil, 2 tsp balsamic vinegar, and 1 cup romaine lettuce.

    Likely, that will be all the food I eat today, unless I decide to eat 6 almonds as a snack.

    We all mess up, but we all can do this! In it together!!

    Morning all - Heading out for another day of meetings-stress-meetings-stress-meetings... well, you get the picture... I will be so glad when warm weather and sunlight come back so I can run away at the end of the day!! PT released me last week and I am cleared for low-impact exercise and judicious short runs if I do walk-run and stop if the knee hurts. Did 60 minutes on the stationary bike last night while catching up on Outlander and it felt pretty good!

    My company started a "Better Health" wellness group last night. Weekly support and accountability. Normally not my thing, but considering what the past six months left to my own devices have earned me I obviously need some adult supervision!
    Have a good day all!

    Good morning All~~

    Suzu - So did you attend the wellness group last night? If yes, I hope that you make a go of it. Few people like a group thing, but if it has decent chemistry, it can be quite a nice thing, I think. I'm assuming there is no cost involved; Weight Watchers is expensive in comparison these days.

    Tracy - be careful trying to stay within your calories/carbs today because of that pie. You don't want to end up hangry late tonight and eat something out of control.

    Sara - that would be nice to let your friend know about the job opening. Good karma!

    Thanks, Lana! I will. Fortunately, (?) I don't have much appetite these days. My doctor put me on DHEA and it is suppressing my desire for food something fierce. I have to force food down most of the time. I rarely even eat after 2 pm, just because it's not worth the effort. Why do it if you don't enjoy it? That applies to food as well as exercise. ;)

  • LanaCabana537LanaCabana537 Posts: 1,555Member Member Posts: 1,555Member Member

    Tracy, that is interesting about the DHEA. Did your doctor put you on it in order to suppress appetite?

    I wouldn't be able to take it because of breast cancer history and heart problems. :neutral:

    She actually put me on it to raise my testosterone. It is supposed to help my sleep patterns (it has!) and combat some other symptoms of low T. The appetite suppression is just a side effect.

    Hello all!

    Eating is better and better - but still snacking a bit too much at times, even if it’s a healthier snack. Had to work late today. Was going to do both workouts, but I still got in one of them! Proud of that at least. Before I’d come home too tired and would make excuses.

    So ready for this weekend. Next weekend starts my “bachelorette” duties and then the wedding. I’m not where I want to be for it, but I am trying my best to just enjoy and then keep going. Onward!

    7911 steps total

    Had phone call with friend and told him about job possibility at my company - never know.

    WW reminded me to make dinner out of leftover lunch - korean beef and rice - not too difficult.

    Wishing all a good night.

    FRIDAY

    Good morning, Yippee!! It's Friday. Scale was kinder this morning.

    #6 bag waiting to be tossed, so much stuff it is not difficult (not a HUGE) bag either. Keeping # helps motivate.

    Will make a teal scarf with a cable pattern - didnt take too long to find cable hook luckily (you can use a double point knitting needle but the cable hook is easier and I can be all thumbs with complicated patterns). Teal is the color for awhile.

    New computer screen and upgraded to Windows 10 hard drive so learning curve at work on how to find things on computer.

    Eryn, when is the wedding?

    Lana - Yes, I did join the group, and while the information isn't new ( let's face it - most of us know what we are supposed to do) there were some good "support buddies" in the group. Appreciate the note!
