Crash and Burn – Falling off the Low Carb Bandwagon

Falling of the Low Carb Bandwagon Hurts …

I have no excuses. However, it is interesting to see how just five-days of crazy-iness can make me feel bloated, sick, unhappy, low energy and guilty. Back to the drawing board friends ……. I guess it is time to hike up my big girl panties and do the walk of shame. ;0)

It looks like I left off on the 14th at Eggs and Granola.

First I wanted to tell you that I signed up at Atkins.com and received a package from them. I love packages! It had a handy-dandy little carb counter booklet, 2 other useful booklets and three meal bars. Today I am a bit excited because I am going on a hunt for the new version of the Atkins book … mind you I have no patience to sit and wait for delivery from a website. I also mentioned before that there is a $3.00 rebate coupon on the Atkins website for the book. I love deals.

So onward …..

Eggs & Granola

I’m feel exceptionally well today. I am in a good mood which beats the sick feeling I had the past few days. Is it possible I hit induction? I sure hope so. Onward – I forgot I was attempting an egg only diet today. What an excuse right? I’m being honest. After work I rushed home to get my hair cut with my brother when the tones dropped for an “out of control” grass fire. So I run into the house, grab my gear and shot back out the door. Off we go. In the end I came home from the “fire” and my hair appointment and got ready to go on a walk. Without thinking I grabbed a bottle of water and an Atkins bar and shot out the door again. Two miles later it hit me that I just flubbed up my own egg fest attempt. Damn it! Oh well … for the most part I got it right .. no? Add to that I’ve been sure to eat something every 3-4 hours today. It’s worked out quite well as I haven’t once been hungry. Love it!

Last night and this afternoon my carb cravings were rather intense. I out-willed them though by grabbing my water bottle and just continuously and ridiculously drowning myself in water the moment a cracker, cheesy or piece of coffee cake popped into my head.

Maybe tomorrow will be better.

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???
