@trooworld I love periogis. I have a Polish friend that makes them. I think I will try your pear salad next week. That sounds good. Did you track a meal yesterday?
@joannadavison I'm one who does not believe in good foods vs bad foods. Probably so I can eat the bad foods and not feel guilty. lol I'm learning to rename them healthy vs unhealthy. It makes my choices easier sometimes. Sometimes I want to live here in the now and enjoy my ice cream. I made better choices than I usually do on Saturday. I got a no sugar added small scoop in a cup. Important thing I think is staying within the boundaries daily and we can work on the balance of our food. I love boats and the water.
@gemwolf110 That's the part I love about the firepit too. The spaces between the bricks to see the glow. I just had a bad thought. You can roast marshmallows through that hole. With your job I bet the employee discounts are nice. What is your food/exercise plan for the upcoming holiday season. You know you will be super busy during that time. It's good to have a plan in place before it hits.
@kimifarr Welcome to the group! Lots of people had problems with that freestyle thing. I'm a data person and like to know exactly what I'm eating/exercising.
So I got my stitches out today. I think one was embedded in my nose. She couldn't get it out and kept pulling and kept apologizing because she knew it hurt. Yes it did. My bp was high again today. I have hypertension but this was second time it was high in a 5 days. I took it at home and it was much lower. I'm going to track it for awhile and see. Maybe I need a dosage change? I'm wondering if this carb cycling thing is affecting it somehow. I'm not using sodium more than normal. Anyway, don't want to stroke out. I'm still working towards my goal. There's a good chance of long term success with this plan.
Tomorrow I start my next 100 days. I'm doing a combination of two books and already have my syllabus outlined for it.

@gemwolf110 lets all visit for healtht cookout on your firepit. We have a lot of work to do on our garden- DH started but then back injury hampered him, had all sorts of plan that haven't happened- your firepit is making me very jealous
@kimifarr welcome. I haven't been on MFP very long either- this is a great group. I've literally just cancelled WW (been with them almost 10 years, never hit goal but been very close)- saving my money for PT now. I did buy this month's magazine & also the Slimming World one too.
@theslightedgeforever : stitches out- ouch only goid experiences I had was the 1 stitch & beads 1st C-section then soluble for 2nd- all rest ops not been nice. Was the high bp due to stress of stitches?? I remember asking what the beeping was in theatre when I had minor surgery with local & no sedation-my bp was through the roof & I heard it come down once he'd finished- really dramatic. My mum's was up & it was the potassium in the salt alternative- shehad to get that all sorted. Mighr be worth checking a few reasons.
Had another tiring day but productive. DH cooked a veggie version of "Cajun dirty rice" from Pinch of Nom book tonight- it was lush!!!!
Hope you all have goid day

@gemwolf110 your firepit looks awesome! It’s so pretty- very nice and inviting. Yeah the spaces between the bricks are great. Did you come up with that design yourself?
@theslightedgeforever wow that sounds awful with the stitches. Did they heal ok?
Hi @kimifarr welcome!
@joannadavison! Congrats to your daughter! Great to have an accomplishment after a negative day. The low bp- I don’t know it could be making me tired. I certainly have chronic raccoon eyes no matter how much sleep I get! I know I get dizzy when doing certain strength training exercises and that could be causing it. There’s really nothing I can do about I guess except she said to make sure I drink enough water. So that was a goal anyway. And hopefully it doesn’t dip down right out of the normal range.
@trooworld sounds like a nice dinner out. Yeah the two salads look good, though I’m not a fan of lump crab. Maybe I can substitute something. I'm going to try one of the chili recipes you recommended later this week.
@renaegry sounds like the kids are keeping you busy. It’s great you can exercise while they have their events.
Well I am starting a new week and trying really hard to stay on track. Went out Sunday with a couple people and stuck to my limit of 2 beers. It helped that I didn’t really care for the options lol. We grabbed lunch and so I was over calories by 200 but I think I can bring that down by end of week. I hope! I have a few long days for me, which is very unusual, but I have a new project at work picking up and I have to travel 3 days this week, and go in to the office the fourth. So I usually end up eating more when I’m out and about.
I have made a plan for the week of meals and snacks- I don’t normally do that but hoping it will help me.
I went for a walk today instead of a run bc I felt beat. I walked through an old cemetery here, it is very pretty. My exercise will be less this week bc I won’t be home as much.
I’m a bit anxious with the new projects. Bc I’m like a consultant I have to meet new people all over again every project. But I’m supposed to be with this group until May, so hopefully once I get started it will all be good.
Take care all.
