    Aww Ath sorry it's been rough. Meal planning even eating out might help and choose carbless or lower carb items. I have fallen off my clean eating this week. I haven't gone over my calories, but just eating bleh😧 So don't feel alone. I am starting fresh on Sunday with carb cycling. I really neec to reboot my attitude 😎

    Breakfast: Sausage McMuffin and hot chocolate

    Lunch: Nothing (late breakfast)

    Dinner: Either the frozen pizza I stuffed into the freezer or order in. Whatever I don't do today I will do tomorrow. Easy weekend because Monday is Mabon and I am making a nice meal for myself and a friend.

    Snack Options: Hot chocolate, tea, or cider. Pretzels, cookies, popcorn, nuts, apples, dried mango, dark chocolate, RX bars.

    I have to be careful with going low carb. Too much fat and I am stuck in the bathroom with horrible stomach cramps. I also can't have too much protein due to a medication I took (and still take occasionally) that can cause kidney issues. Like one meal or one day of eating low carb is fine. I just can't do it over and over without having problems. I have so many issues lol

    @Athijade Given your circumstance, it might be best if you could work with a dietitian who could design a program that works with your meds and health issues. I wish you the best and hope you can get that type of help.

    @gallicinvasion I'm guessing you are talking about the sad news of the death of RBG. She was such a strong leader and role model for us all.

    Pre-logged this morning:

    B. Hot herb tea. Bran cereal with banana, milk and splenda.

    L. Tuna salad sandwich. Batch cooked chicken vegetable soup. Coffee with milk.

    S. Chobani greek yogart topped with chopped strawberries.

    D. Premier chocolate protein drink.

    Activities: 5 minute AT arm workout plus 2 sets of overhead lifts with my 15 lb weights.

    @hawksgirl229 Thank you for your encouragement. I'm happy to see progress toward my weight goal.

    Breakfast
    Pumpkin latte & a banana

    Lunch
    Apple & trail mix that I bulked up with extra walnuts

    Dinner
    Leftover mashed potatoes with a hard boiled egg chopped and mixed in (weird, but good) and a side of tomato slices

    Snacks
    Beef jerky, dark chocolate square and planning on a couple beers later on tonight

    Looks healthy but there is no volume! I'm sorry but I would feel starved with such little amount of food for the calories and nutrients involved. I'm eating at a deficit with vigorous exercise and I struggle to eat the amount of food I need to eat. High calorie dense foods just don't cut it for me.

    @Athijade - Keeping you in my thoughts!! It's so easy to get sidetracked or derailed, especially with everything going on in the world, people's personal lives, etc. First and foremost is to remember to be kind to yourself! And we're always here if you need to vent or need support. <3

    @hawksgirl229 -Thanks for the kind words! We try to do most things homemade and I really love baking. Wish I could share with you all!
    Also, what's your pumpkin smoothie recipe, if you don't mind my asking?? I've been on a massive pumpkin kick recently with fall weather setting in and need to know. B)

    @asthesoapturns - Your entire menu today sounds delicious. I've never thought of doing a spiked float like that, and now feel like I absolutely need to!

    Thanks. It was a tasty day. The mix, Kraken and Fireball is usually with Coke and called a Cannonball, but I prefer to make it with root beer or Dr Pepper, and I do a half ounce each. I like my drinks weak which does work for the calories.

    Forgot my snack, was a tall half sweet pumpkin spice latte. When I remember to get pumpkin I'll make my own with actual pumpkin in it, very yummy with black tea... and a little Kraken or Fireball doesn't hurt if there's mood and calories to spend.

    @rainingribbons
    Protein powder (vanilla) mine is 2 scoops, 1/2 cup 100% pumpkin pie canned ( I pre-measure it and freeze until I need it, then I nuke it until it is semi frozen), water, ice, 3 tbls sugar-free Torani pumpkin pie syrup, pumpkin pie spice to taste. In the blender until milkshake consistency. I like to put cool whip on top, drizzle caramel syrup and sprinkle some pecans on top..This is basically it..One of my favorites this time of the year. Water and ice I start with 1 cup of each and adjust up as needed..I go for a thick consistency.🍂 🎃
    How was the cheetos mac and cheese. I saw it yesterday at Walmart.

    My plan for today:

    Breakfast: pumpkin pie overnight oats with brown sugar and roasted edamame

    Lunch: spaghetti squash with goat cheese alfredo sauce and Italian chicken sausage, plus roasted garlic green beans

    Snack: peaches and blueberries, plus an almond protein bar

    Dinner; pasta with fra diavolo sauce and chicken meatballs, the last bit of roasted sweet potatoes+carrots+onions, and two little Brazilian cheese bread bites

    Dessert: a cookies+cream ice cream sandwich, plus some blueberries and graham cracker crumbs

    Should end the day around 1,760 calories and hit my protein goal of around 95 I think.
