Sweet! Yay for you!
Yup! But sadly, I fell short on one strength workout. I didn’t realize how many extra events I had this week.

Nik, I might be able to help. I’ve worked in health insurance for 20 years and know the system. If you want me to look, send me some details about your plan – the policy would be great if you have it.
Meanwhile, I think your stress mgmt plan sounds solid – you’ve got this!
B: savory breakfast cookies
L: strawberry walnut kale salad
D: butternut squash soup and roasted turkey
S: protein bars, fruit and yogurt dip
Exercise: Walk 25 miles, 3 strength workouts (1 with trainer)
Plus a massage!
Pretty good. Does anyone else feel like work holidays just mean you have to do 40+ hours of work in 4 days?!
yep. So these are new and a bit of an experiment. They had good flavor but we’re too fluffy so I’m going to try again with less baking powder
I did! Planning is done, just have to purchase some tickets this week
B: savory breakfast cookies
L: butter chicken
D: Creamy chicken & spinach
Snacks: protein bars, low carb scones, pb protein bites
Exercise: 25miles (at least 8K steps per day/5 days) + 2 strength workouts
All good…except the vacation planning! But I’ve got time to get that done this weekend
I do – London!
B: Scrambled eggs with chicken sausage
L: porcupine meatballs, salad
D: Roasted chicken & brussel sprouts
S: Greek yogurt with almonds, protein bars
Exercise: 2 strength/aerobic workouts (1 with trainer, 1 alone)
+ walk 25+ miles
Self-care: schedule my next massage and spend an hour planning my upcoming vacation
WELLLL…it did help me manage my stress, but didn’t actually help me work any less! So my exercise plan went out the window last week.
I’m here! Been super busy with work and life but doing well!
LOL – borrow away!!
Yep, I definitely make lists to categorize them and am using those to guide my time; i.e., spending my time primarily on those items I control. I’m not sure where I came up with this idea, but I’m putting things in 3 buckets: What I control, what I can influence, and what I just need to be aware of/watch progress.
Breakfast: scrambled egg whites with baked bacon
Lunch: Low carb pizza bites
Dinner: crockpot pork tenderloin and salad
Snacks: protein bars, blueberries, lemon-sour cream pudding
Exercise: Walk ~30 miles, strength training 2-3x
I’m also trying to focus on managing my work stress by categorizing what I control v. influence, and I have a massage…[Read more]
