Disclaimer, Please do not take my titles of my blogs so seriously!!
I am a sarcastic person and often write my blogs from that viewpoint. Humor folks, look it up.
So that being said, WOW, no, I didnt actually intend to pull my hair out.
It is just an old saying to describe frustration.

Now, on to today's blog.
With 10 days left to go before my next doc appointment, I am really increasing my workouts, have been adding weights, stair stepping and walking more.
I have stuck to the low carb "diet" pretty well, with the exception of having a piece of cornbread and soup beans for supper last night.
I took Honey out for his bday Saturday and he wanted Golden Corral. I did really good, No breads, no pasta or starches and no desserts.
I stuck to veggies and meat.
I cooked last night, made soup beans and cornbread and grilled steak.
I had not eaten any bread of any kind since July 8th. So, I was feeling pretty guilty about that piece of cornbread.
I dont think its undone my whole plan, but in retrospect, I could have left that out.
I know I got alot more carbs in that one meal than I probably should have for the whole day....But I am going to put it behind me and really focus on this coming week.
I am going to focus on eating healthy, sticking to the low carbs and workout daily.
I know one docs appointment isnt the be all of this but I havent weighed myself since July 1st.
I have focused this whole month on sticking out this plan and doing my best.
With the exception of 5 days of vacation eating. Which I really didnt overdo it then either.
I feel this has been pretty good plan for me.
I havent gone as low as the Keto crowd suggests.
My friend tells me he stays around 12 carbs per day.
I cant see that happening in my life. I can only eat so many eggs!!!!
But anyway, I am determined to make this next 9 days really count, I am not going to miss or skip a workout.
And I know in the long run, I am going to stick this out because it is really so easy.
I also know I will have cravings, but sugar cravings havent been bad at all.
I live in a house where there is always cookies, candy, little debbie cakes and ice cream and I havent been tempted by it.
It is up to me to do this in the long run, I can cheat all day and eat junk, but I wouldnt be hurting anyone but me. No one else really cares what I eat or if I walk, etc, so I have to do this for myself.
And I will.

    It is really amazing, how after several years of "reduced carb" lifestyle (yeah it's a bad idea to call it a "diet" bcz such things by definition come to an end), that ordinary junk food like candy & cookies really don't appeal to me any more...
    I can walk right by that pile o' stuff that my office manager brings in (if we were accidentally locked in the building for several days, we certainly wouldn't starve since Pat keeps us stocked up w/chips & cookies, granola bars & so forth) - I'm not saying I NEVER indulge in a piece of chocolate or a warm buttered roll (how can you NOT have cornbread w/a pot of beans??), but like you say in the long run you're only harming yourself.
