I used the bare spot where the trampoline used to be. I am considering making (another) garden in the pool's old spot, but I only want to start that if we are absolutely certain we will not replace the pool. And I was trying not to start any new gardens this year, because I have several others that I am still working on building up 😬 6 minutes ago, Rurik Harrgath said: Probably shouldn't recommend this, but my wife introduced me to spice/carrot cake mixes from the box... when added alongside a can of pumpkin puree AND NOTHING ELSE, you get a fairly healthy and nutritious dessert that really isn't far off a true cake. Still trying to perfect protein icing though 🤷♂️ 👀 Sounds yummy! The pumpkin oatmeal was okay, but not amazing. The pumpkin-oatmeal protein pancakes, however, were fabulous, as even my picky eater agrees. I have developed a habit of just putting whipped cream on top of cake-adjacent foods. It adds moisture and a hint of sweetness like icing, without adding much in the way of calories (15 per serving) On 1/31/2023 at 9:44 AM, Harriet said: Overcooked chicken is sad, yet very familiar, since my father overcooked everything. How are you doing? I am definitely off my game. I worked on cleanup in lieu of a workout Friday and missed again on Monday because of an extended grocery shopping trip that took 3 hours. I got a late session in yesterday, but have yet to do one today. I haven't blown the diet aspect, at least calorie-wise, but I was majorly short on protein yesterday for the first time since the challenge started. There was no good reason for it except that my brain threw a toddler-esque tantrum of I don't want to. That feeling has been building for a while and seems to have reached a head. I am extra frustrated because I have reached a weight loss plateau that probably has to do with hormone imbalance (seeing some odd, mis-timed symptoms), but even though I know it's probably just water retention, it makes it very difficult to stick to the plan when the plan is hard and I am not seeing results. 6 Quote Life before Death Strength before Weakness Journey before Destination Link to comment
