    I'm a vegetarian who doesn't like eating in the morning/breakfast, and who relies mostly on plain veggies. I eat big bowls/plates of food and it really fills me up, but because it's all veg, the calories are super low 😭

    Thank you so much @foreverslim1111 @rainingribbons ! Today I ate to the point where it felt like overeating but ended up under the 900 mark again 😑 And I weigh all of my food so there's no mistake there. I might have to include more high-calorie items and see how that affects my macros without freaking me out, because I'm not particularly trying to lose weight. Again, thanks for the advice! ❤

    Breakfast: a cup of tea before heading to the derm. After, a toasted everything bagel with olive pimento cream cheese. I felt I had earned it for being brave and having a precancer burned off my eyebrow. Wear sunscreen everyone! And a hat! Get your skin checks!

    Snack: iced coffee with oat milk.

    Lunch: lentil salad with fennel, tomatoes, walnuts, heaps of fresh herbs, and grilled halloumi, dressed with lemon vinaigrette.

    Snack: a saturn peach.

    Evening: a negroni and a handful of chili lime tortilla chips.

    @hawksgirl229 the first challenge I did was goal weight by 4th of July, then the same poster started the Labor Day one. So I imagine there will be more after this! I like having the extra place to check in and log, it’s nice. And a long challenge is more in my comfort zone than trying to lose fast. Just my two cents.

    Crazy day here! Our elderly neighbors lost their daughter suddenly to a massive heart attack Monday. 😕 All the neighbors brought food over today so I cooked most of the day. I am so thankful for playdoh today kept our little boys busy for a loooong time which is hard to do 😝

    B- cheesestick with strawberries and coffee
    L- Turkey on a low carb wrap and greenbeans
    S- one pig in the blanket, 2tbs baked mac and cheese, 1tbs frosting
    D- 2 Hamburger patties with cheese I was all out of peas 😩
    S- Turkey and cheese low carb wrap
    S-Two low carb shortcakes with strawberries and reddi whip

    Calories: 1350 seems low for how much crap I ate but I logged it and almost hit my macros 😌

    B. Two cups hot tea with milk. One over easy egg cooked in a t of EVOO, one slice Dave's Killer multigrain bread. half glass Lactaid 2% calcium milk.

    L. Chicken sand with 2 oz pre-cooked chicken breast, light mayo, mustard, chopped onions. Half glass Lactaid milk.

    S. 3 multigrain crackers, half glass Lactaid milk.

    D. Cooked beef patty seasoned and mixed with 1 T minced onion, .5 T Ranch season mix. Served with bowl of steamed broccoli, carrots topped with 1 T cheese sauce.

    Got about 74 gms of protein. Seems if I hit my protein macro (70-80 gms) then I'm a bit short on veg servings LOL. The cheese sauce helps me enjoy eating the veggies. Calorie total: 1339.

    Activities: 90 minutes of cleaning kitchen cupboards inside and out, sorting and culling and cleaning contents. Calories burned around 300.

    @PmiA Good to see that you added in more protein foods! Nice balance!

    @rainingribbons I see you are already adding fall type flavors in. :) I love pumpkin spice.

    Hoping this finds you on the mend after your derm appointment and I will watch to see if challenge gets extended..I'm at the lower end of my weight category so anything now is [slooooow. But as they say slow and steady wins the race.
