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 …..

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.
