Today was not a good day for eating …. I found out my four-year old son needs to have a biopsy done on a lump on his neck.

Atkins shared two recipies today perhaps of interest … Egg Salad and Egg Salad Plus .. I’ll be making this for snacks! Yummy!

Fought the Urge of Pasta-Monster

Last evening we had a family cook-out which usually entails mom’s yummy potato salad piled high with everything but the sink, my own macaroni salad, hot-dogs, hamburgers, chicken, and of course – fresh made peach pie. For once – I dreaded this little get together but anticipated the challenge of myself and ability to stick to the plan.

Kudos to me – I stuck my nose up to the salads and instead made chicken salad with celery and tomato, I had a hot dog and a 1/4 lb. hamburger with ketchup fixings without the bun (I didn’t miss it either!) and I casually walked away from the table as everyone gobbled down peach pie envisioning myself a month from now feeling better without the peach pie sitting on my hips. Wonderful. Naturally my family observed my new eating habits – horrified. My mom is the comfort food queen … home cooking and EVERYONE is required to eat until they bust. Thanks to my preparation for questions I eased through the evening without the stress of hearing “Why are you starving yourself?”, “Why are you eating that when you can have THIS?” … it was easier then I thought minus my husband asking “So hunny, you want your roll grilled” – as a joke obviously the man doesn’t cherish his life.

I came home last night totally satisfied with myself and woke up this morning feeling bloated and way full – still. I think I may have over ate last night? I don’t know … but it’s 10 am now and I just ate a boiled egg because I still feel full yet I don’t want to deprive my body of something. Regardless …. I’m sticking to the plan with confidence and determination. Plus 50 sit-ups and a much needed 4 mile walk with my pal … Bear this afternoon. The sun is shining and I’m feeling full. Can it get any better???

I don’t know what I’m doing!

Today’s goal is to find informational articles on low carb lifestyle and put together a meal plain for the remaining month of April.

Yesterday I did accomplish a nice walk that included my husband and kids. We hiked through a gorgeous nature trail and if it wasn’t so darn windy out I would have suggested we go further. None the less – it was so much fun. I think we’re going back there today – if not I have asked my brother to walk our usual 4 miles with me.

As you can see by yesterday’s food log I did well with my food intake – minus the Rye Sandwich thins. I didn’t however, eat any dinner. By 6 pm I was sporting a massive headache from being tired. The previous night my 2 year old woke up randomly every 2 hours and I finally gave up at 6 am yesterday morning. My body was screaming for sleep as I dozed off around 7 pm last night and woke up at 7 am. 12 hours of much needed sleep. Thanks to my loving husband who fed the kids dinner, cleaned the kitchen, and put the monsters to bed. I am so blessed.

Prior to LC research and menu planning I have to finish up college work. I weighed in at exactly 188 this morning – no difference from yesterday. Perhaps having sandwich thins would be great on maintenance but not on the losing phase. I hope to check out some more blogs today. Well, I’m off to have breakfast with my brother. I’ll check in later.

What Bandwagon?

Lets face it – we all have our indulgences. I was informed yesterday by my inner skinny bitch voice … “You have fallen off the bandwagon.” What bandwagon? I’m not following a diet or any type of strict, ritualistic routine. Okay – I own up .. I had a nutty butty bar. Why in the hell do I feel so guilty? I loved it. It was wonderful. After I finished it – that skinny bitch voice cackled and said “You my friend have just gained 5 lbs. hahaha!” Whatever. It just so happens that I have yet to fully adhere to my NO DAMN JUNKFOOD rule. However, in my own defense I have done well for myself otherwise. That’s life – I’m not perfect-o.

In other news life is just peachy (said with a slight sarcastic tone). I managed to get all my bills paid off this month which is always a glorious stress-free moment of relaxation. That moment is usually followed by broken silence from my needy husband or demanding kids. I haven’t walked all week and that alone makes me feel like a fat girl. I will today – I promise to report back with confirmation. ;0) How are you?
