It's been a little more than a week since I last blogged. I don't know if it was H1N1 or something else, but I was feeling pretty nasty for the past week+. Low carb was the furthest thing from my mind - actually, eating in general was just not v... Read more

Not much new to say. Still in ketosis and spend the evening prepping for the week. I was not a happy camper to open the lettuce drawer to find orange lettuce!! :( Oh well, the taco meat that I had already cooked went into 4 freezer containers an... Read more
A whole week under my belt

Just a quick note to say I am still on track and doing well. Life is not without temptations here and there, but I find myself telling that inner whiner, "It's just a __________ (insert any high carb i.e., high sugar food item here). Get a grip!... Read more

So it seems that my team at work looks for every excuse in the book to have a "food day," which is basically just a covered dish carry-in lunch/dinner. Today was one of those days. I declined to participate. There were things there...oh my...tha... Read more

Low Carb Monday
Monday, October 12, 2009      0 comments

Today was Day Two back on low carb and it went pretty well. My strawberry fluff stuff didn't turn out very well, but it is edible and quenches a yearning for something sweet with substance - beyond just plain jello. I will try to tweak the recip... Read more

After my classes yesterday, as much as I was hurting and as much as I really did not want to go to the grocery store, I went. I stocked up on lots of meat and vegetables. Most of my protein sources are lean as I really need to get into the habit... Read more
It's been a while

Just as the title suggests, it's been a while - for a lot of things. It's been a while since I have blogged. It's been a while since I have done much about becoming healthier. It's probably been a while for other things, too, but they aren't rel... Read more

made me fat. It made me REALLY fat. I can't express just how much I yearn junk food. It doesn't matter if it is of the potato chip or chocolate chip variety. I just love junk food. Somewhere in the recess of my mind, I seemed to equate hap... Read more

I am most pleased with myself today :) I got myself back onto low carb and am well prepared for the week ahead. After grocery shopping, I came home and spent most of my afternoon, and even into the evening, washing and prepping vegies. I have a ... Read more
Low Carb

It has become rather apparent that I must be an "all or nothing" kinda girl and it looks like "moderation," while an easy concept, is rather difficult in practice. Thus, I am going back to low carb, but instead of Atkins, I am going to do a modi... Read more

Here's a poem that isn't great as a poem, but the content is pretty awesome. Especially the end of the first stanza: "it's a matter of doing 100 things, 1% better each day." Perseverance is about staying the course. It's about not deviating fro... Read more
