Monthly tally for my two goals that I've been rewarding myself financially for:

Days on plan: 12 - my worst month all year. Clearly the financial incentive didn't help
Days step goal met: 24

Amaranth WW sets you up to fail..because you clearly have blood sugar issues. It penalizes fat which is what you need to make up for low carb. I have tried it and I tried it in the recent past. It made me ravenous and hangry!

FHQ, It can be expensive but it doesn't have to be. Come over to the budget thread and see how we do it! I am not 100% all the time, but I also don't but a bunch of carbs because it's cheaper.

Fairhavenqueen: This is one of the reasons why I eat higher carb than most people here, I average 70 net grams a day. But prepared food that I'm not standing forever in the kitchen for and easy to freeze and cheap fruits and veg make my food budget lower but my carbs higher. I can't deal with salad every day to work or it would be different. I spend about 420 a month for two people and he doesn't eat low carb, but mostly rice when I cook dinner for us both and he just has his over rice.

There was sandwich day at work and I had a sandwich, but did one slice and had lots of veggies. I did not eat my apple to make up for it, nor some of my other go-tos for lunch. We had some candy for trick or treaters but we only had one trick or treater, we live in a very separated part of the street with mostly elderly people and no children. Our trick or treater was a 5- or 6-year old dressed up as pikachu. we watched Nightmare before Christmas as we do every year and I had some candy in between until my husband took it from me, which was good. I would have continued! I specifically got stuff he liked, I knew we weren't likely to have many trick or treaters.

I heard about a program called 'shrink yourself' which is supposed to help with binge eating and I'm considering it for when we have more money, which would be february when the car is paid off. I realize I need some help with this and Overeaters Anonymous just gets me frustrated and weight watchers doesn't know what to do about binge eating. The other option is to go back into therapy, that's how I lost quite a bit of weight and now I'm slowly gaining it back.

So for today:
emoticon Tracked nutrition: No
emoticon Under or on 70 gr of carbs: my guess is 80 grams
emoticon Under or on 12 gr of sugar alcohols: none
emoticon Did I make sweets at home (twice a week): 2/2
emoticon Did I take my morning and evening insulin: yes
emoticon Did I walk (except Sun): yes, 20 minutes
emoticon How many veggies and fruit did I have: carrots, cucumber, sugar snap peas, celery, and zucchini with cheese

FHQ, I've been averaging right about $200 a month for food over the past six months. The feds figure that the cost of feeding one person in Idaho is $192, for food stamp purposes. I don't bother with things like organic, though.

Did my last 10 miles on the bike this morning, so I made it to my 100 mile goal. Think I need to get more walks in than I did this month, though. The dreary weather is affecting my desire to walk, but the weight is definitely not moving down very quickly. At least I finished the month barely under 160. I wonder why those round numbers seem like the hardest to defeat? You wouldn't think the scale would know the difference, lol!

Put all the expenditures for Oct onto my budget spreadsheet yesterday, and boy oh boy, I sure am spending a lot more on food eating Low Carb than I used to!! Does anyone else find that to be true? I may have to cut back on purchase of Protein Bars, although they are the one treat we have that feels like dessert. And cut back on the nitrite/nitrate free pastrami and ham, and do more chicken, I think.

Yes the alphabet game from N on sounds great.

I went with hubby when he desperately wanted to go out to a pizza joint for pizza buffet. I had a big plate of salad and one piece of my favorite pizza and I was able to stick wiht that. So I'm a little over my carbs but not too crazy much.

I won a gift card at work Monday and after the pizza we went to the store and I found a hairdryer with a 'cold' button for cold air so I can dry my painting quicker, I've had to stop to wait several times with the large project.

One of the many advantages of being retired is no more food spreads at work! One place I worked provided donuts every Friday, had a birthday party with treats of the birthday people's choice every month, a bowlful of candy quite often, and periodic ice cream sundaes. Don't know that they every provided healthy food.

Spent yesterday vegging in front of Family Affair yesterday, with a few episodes of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman thrown in for good measure. Feeling much better today and will spend much less time with Netflix and/or Amazon Prime Video.

At my work they often do things like taco bar with salad options, or sandwich bar with salad options. It's seldom that there is nothing for me to eat. It is the desserts that are the problem, and especially the Thursday desserts when they bring several for people to have and if I haven't prepared for that, I cave big time. Sometimes even when I have prepared for it.

Today was a good day, no sugar treats and no binges. Work could have gone better but tomorrow is a new day. One thing I did this evening was write 'get out the vote' cards and they gave me 5 with addresses, those I wrote, but also 5 without for people you know, but I know only one person's address and that was my sister in law. And they have to spend enough on those 5 stamps for addressed cards, I feel bad that 4 stamps are not usable because I don't know people, it's expensive enough! But there's nothing I can do about it.

I didn't track today but had a good day.

It's a different mindset, isn't it, FHQ? The idea that a party or a buffet or a potluck or whatever is about people and not about food. Food is incidental, or should be, anyway.

Hi, I'm still here. Just have been too busy to check in. I'm feeling good about the food choices I made at the wedding on Saturday, unlike my DH who took bread and tortillas! And yesterday we had a potluck after church, but I took main dish salads for DH and myself, and we didn't go through the potluck line at all. We ate our salads and visited with people, instead of making it about eating as much as possible. I don't do well when there's a big spread of desserts, so I didn't even go look at them.

Wishing you all a great week!

The farmer's market sounds like fun, Budgetmaw! I'm so glad Russel is doing so well. I'm considering adding a fun line too in my goals for next month, it's something that could help me.

I was silly and baked hubby chocolate chip cookies because he wanted them so badly, and of course promptly ate some. Have to remember if you make it of course you're going to have some. So that brought me over carbs a bit.

Was very busy with my to do list today and got everything done for today. Tomorrow there is more, of course, but I'm on track at least. My painting (on paper) is done and now I have to find the time to frame it. I am going to try a nd find out how to post pictures on here but I can't figure out whereon my tablet they live.

Cindy: Glad you're feeling better!

The day was a lot less slow than I thought, I still had stuff left to get rid of from my old job, there's still a few Fridays left for that. No sugary treats today and no binges, yay. Just the things I baked last weekend unfortunately half of them didn't work out but I got a few good ideas from Kris and some recipes I did do with success in the past, that's what I got for trying two new things.

I finished my painting, it looks very close to the lesson one that I was doing the art from, much more than usually, so that is good.

Kris: Thanks for sharing your recipe and ideas with me, that does sound really good!

I did some painting this evening but then I had to wait for it to dry to be able to do something over the top of it, I don't have a hairdryer. I need to ask for one for Xmas or something, so I can dry my paint and don't have to wait a day.

Work went very well, only 2 errors, my boss was happy. Tomorrow is going to be a veeerrrryyy slow day because my mentor has the day off and I can't really do anything for practice because she won't be able to see it when she gets back Monday, our program resets over the weekend. So I'm kind of dreading doing just busywork without actually being able to improve through it. Oh well, I'll have to write up some really good questions of things I run into.

Other ideas for satisfying a sweet tooth - dark chocolate covered strawberries - you can make your own, super easy in the microwave, or I've found a box of them by the frozen fruit at Walmart. There's only about 4-5 in a pkg, good portion control. Also this recipe has saved me many times:

Atkins Chocolate "Pudding"
2 T. heavy cream
1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 packet Stevia or sweetener of choice
Mix together until it reaches the consistency of soft ice cream Add a drop or two of vanilla extract if desired.

Acorn squash is one of the carbiest at 11 net carbs per 100 grams. Pumpkin is lowest in carbs, at 4 net carbs per 100 grams. Buttercup, butternut and delicata are all about the same, with 7 or 8 net carbs per 100 grams.

I cooked acorn squash tonight and I didn't realize it was pretty high in carbs, unlike pumpkin. Acorn squash is at least 2 times the net carbs if not 3 times. Oops! Next time I'm making pumpkin for dinner in the same way, because the acorn squash was pretty good. So that's why my carbs are a bit over, I thought it would be comparable, nope.

I wanted to finish my painting but instead I wrote to someoone who had a mental health diagnosis I do and needed advise. I felt guilty because I wanted to paint but I remember how many questions I had in the beginning. My painting will wait until tomorrow. It's already getting recognizeable.

Went to weight watchers weigh in, there is a dude there who is doing low carb and intermittent fasting and they don't give him a big deal about it, so I think that's good to know. the leader wants me to track both here and on the WW app though, saying the carbs will be figured out soon enough, and it's true, apart from acorn squash I know exactly what I'm having, but I want to pay more attention to the carbs than to the weight watcher points. Well anyways, I had a really good week adn I gained 0.2 lbs so that was a bit frustrating, but if I manage long enough not to have sugary binges the scale shall budge. I have had a week of no binges on sugar and that is due to the treats I'm making in the weekend and taking to work, so I'm going to continue that. today was another good day where that's concerned.

Yes, thanks for the well wishes! I am doing better but still don't feel 100%. I still feel really tired and sluggish even though I am getting my sleep. I went back to work, and at least made it through the day! But I am not sniffling and sneezing and blowing my nose all over either! I agree, it's best to stay home so you don't get others sick.

Thank you for the well wishes!

I feel a lot better so that only was two days, which was lucky. My husband is still under the weather so I hope he doesn't give it back to me. But I'm feeling back to my normal self.

Had a good food day, no sugar or unplanned carbs, and a good work day. I got a lot of painting done on my new project, I think I'll finish it tomorrow!

I painted everyone at work a holiday ornament last year and this year I had the same plan, but there are 44 people so I wanted to get an early start. So I was at the dollar store to get the craft ornaments and I saw a colleague and she just bought me half of the ones I need. So nice! I always feel a little weird accepting help like that but since I'm counting every dollar it was enormously helpful. I need to make sure she gets the best one :)

Didn't find time to check in yesterday, but I did ride my 10 miles, so that's 90 out of 100 done for the month. Today my exercise was chasing after the 2 year old all morning. I escaped with only mild abrasions, lol.

Hope you're both feeling better, Amaranth and Cindy. Someone was at bridge yesterday with a cold and I didn't appreciate it! Blowing her nose and then shuffling the cards without sanitizing her hands. Coughing and breathing on people. Yuck! It's one thing when it's job and you HAVE to show up. It's totally different when you are exposing people - especially old people and one women going through chemo - unnecessarily. End of rant.

Cindy: good tip thank you. Unfortunately a lot of those use almond flour and erithrytol which I currently can't afford, but I'm keeping on looking!

I've been feeling ill as well, throatachy and tired. So I didn't walk today I could hardly drag myself through the day. Unless I'm worse tomorrow I really am not going to skip walking again, it might have helped me.

I did some painting though I think it might take two more days for the paintalong from youtube is done. But it's nice to be creative again.

I always skip past them, but there's a lot of low carb and keto sweets recipes on Pinterest. I use it for all sorts of things.

I have done none of my goals but sleeping...and I'm finally feeling better!

It was a good day food-wise, no sugar and no binges, and I got everything done I wanted to do. Though I tried to bake cookies from coconut flour and before they came out great and now it was a big gooey mess, and I'd found sugar free chocolate chips, that are sticking out now out of a very flat cookie-sheet sized floppy attempt at cookie. I cut it up and froze it for treats during the week, but I don't have very much working out for treats this week, it's both failed attempts. The pumpkin cookies are the ones that I can get to work out every time, and cheesecake if I'm in the mood, that's about the recipes I have. I need to look a bit more through my Dana Carpender cookbooks!

LOL, Maw. It's almost too bad the jackpot is so high, my odds are next to zero. I didn't buy one because of the amount, but because it was on my list and I needed a quick and easy thing this week. Until last night, I'd never actually bought my own lottery ticket. I've participated in a few office pools in the past and have received some as stocking stuffers, but that's the extent of it.

My year of 50 Things to Celebrate 50 Years is up. I've decided to do it again though since I really enjoyed it and there are some things I didn't get to, and others that I've just come up with. Edit to say, I've already got more than 50 on my new list.

Well the brownies were not a success. I think using Splenda instead of erithrytol was the culprit but I can't afford the expensive stuff like erithrytol. I still had some coconut flour that needed to be finished and some almond flour, but after that they're both too expensive too. I can get bulk coconut at Winco here so I will make that by putting it in the food processor into coconut flour, though I think it's less fine and will need more (twice as much?) from what I remember. But I spent some of my birthday money on baking materials and I need to finish them before they get to their date. But the brownies were very dry and crumbly and would not hold together at all. I've spent the morning looking for recipes that have brownie, coconut flour and splenda on the page but there is only one and it uses some soy flour. Soy flour is cheap but I don't know where to get it anymore, my normal place stopped selling it!

For the rest yesterday was a good day, no sugar or binges. I'll try and post tonight for the day today.

Amaranth: My husband's doctor put him on low carb because he was pre-diabetic. So he's the whole reason I started low carb. It does make it a lot easier that he's eating basically the same as me, and that my elderly mother is fine with eating this way too.

Weight is up a bit today, though I don't think I did anything to make that happen. I seem to always retain water or something a few days before full moon. Then after full moon, I lose again. Weird, but true. So I'm not gonna freak out, just keep on with the plan.

I went to a ladies' brunch yesterday, and skipped all the yummy-looking cinnamon rolls. Just had a little egg-broccoli breakfast casserole, a little melon, and some almonds.

Fair haven queen: your husband is doing low carb with you! you're so lucky, I'm still cooking side dishes of carbs for him, he is getting an awful lot of rice because I don't like rice and it doesn't tempt me at all :)

I had a good food day, no sugary treats or binges, and a good work day, got a lot done. Tonight I was looking at brownies to make and take to work, low carb of course, the cheesecake froze well but it just wasn't what I wanted. We'll have to see how the brownies work out.

Amaranth, good for you for your honesty and for making a plan to avoid the same pitfalls next time!
Cindy, hope you feel better soon!

I think I'm going to meet my challenge for the month with no trouble, I've got 80 out of 100 miles done on my bike already.

Was so happy to hear my husband last night say that he's not having cravings for sweets and chips anymore! That is HUGE!

I ate on plan except I had some more pork roast when I was putting it away. Calories, fat and protein were still (barely) within acceptable limits, and pork is definitely on plan, but the extra feeding time was not. I thought about it before I ate it, and set a limit on how much I would eat and stuck to that limit, but the extra meal was not on plan. But oh, was it ever good!

Fairhavenqueen: You are -so- right about days and nights, you can start over. I just want more good days than bad days.

Today was a bad food day, there weren't just the desserts from the office food day yesterday, someone bought new donuts and cookies. I fell for a donut and then my 'never mind this is a lost day' kicked in and I had a cookie (and they were gigantic) and when I got home hotdogs with buns. I tracked everything. It was 199 carbs total. What went wrong was that I had not brought my normal noon-meal low carb bread sandwich with lots of meat and cheese (I freeze them and they are defrosted by the time it's time to eat). I had assumed there were leftovers from the taco day and there weren't. So I was hungry when I fell for the donut.

Plan for tomorrow and other days" bring it and if I don't eat it I can eat it the next day. bring my low carb goodies, which I'd brought and eaten before 2 PM, so I need to hold on to them a little longer. If I can avoid it not go to the 'never mind the day is gone anyways' mindset, it's weird. If you have a fender bender you don't say 'I had one fender bender, now I give up and am just going to have some more'. But with food it's so easy to think that way.

Non-food wise the day wasn't great either because my husband was ill so I had to go back home by bus, which was exhausting. That's also why the hotdogs. tomorrow will be better! He promised whether he was sick or no he would come pick me up.

Naypooie, we all have failure days. I'm glad time is broken up into days divided by nights. That way each day is like a new page with a fresh start!

Only .4 lb left to go before I can say I only have 25 lbs to lose! For some reason I'm very excited (and impatient) about that.

Did another 10 miles on my bike yesterday, and today I enjoyed a beautiful sunny Fall walk to the library while waiting to pick my mother up from her Thursday lunch gathering at the old folks home. The leaves seem extra beautiful this year! Yesterday I also planted some kale starts in my veggie garden, so we'll see if we get a fall crop. I've never eaten so much kale before as I have since we started this LC thing!

Cindy: thanks!

Had a good food day today. We did a 'goodie day' at work with taco theme and I made a taco salad, lots of meat and sour cream and guac and veggies. it was good, and I didn't miss the tortillas. They had chocolate cake for dessert and I managed to take my taco salad away and not go back. I had my cookies and little cheesecakes for dessert instead.

Went to Weight Watchers today (their program now allows many low fat but high protein foods as 'free foods' so they're starting to get the idea). I lost a pound since last week, I think the plan with the homemade sweets is working.

Cindy: that sounds like something that might be doable, a long term project. I might give that a try, though I want to wait until after carb season because with low carb sweets I'll have enough on my plate (silly pun) to not give into the carb crazy stuff.

FairHavenQueen: We also have a caroussel right at the Riverfront Park in the small city where I live. I've been on it but we don't go as often as I'd like. They don't have animals there they make themselves for on the caroussel though! That's way cool.

Budgetmaw: Thank you, I'm very happy it's working out.

Another good day without carbalicious stuff due to having low carb sweets on me. I did have some pasta because my husband wanted to eat pasta for one time so badly I cooked some, and went at about a cup instead of a half cup. So my carbs are a little over.

Went to the dentist, no cavities, just a filling that had fallen out so I'll have to get back the beginning of November.

Limit Netflix, etc. emoticon

At least I think I limited Netflix. Not completely sure.

Was feeling very resistant to doing the things I needed to do last night to take care of myself, so I took Russell for a walk and then took a long hot bath with a good book. Came out feeling much more willing to do things, so I stayed up a bit late to do my evening stuff.

Good morning! Didn't check in yesterday because it was a busy day. I got to go on an old people field trip to a carousal museum, and it was so fun. I rode on a Chinook salmon because someone else got to the toad with the flour sack bloomers first. Got to see new animals being carved and painted to be added to the carousal when completed. Amazing and beautiful work!
Afterwards we went to a Hungarian restaurant for lunch, where I stayed LC just as much as possible. There was probably a little sweet in the cabbage, and maybe some flour in the paprika chicken gravy, but I took very little. I enjoyed my lunch very much, without overeating (even though I chose the buffet so I could pick the things that looked mostly LC), and I weighed the same today as yesterday. That feels like an amazing success to me, because normally I would have wanted to stuff myself, and have the yummy looking bread and noodles and desserts.

Also, I have 60 miles done now out of my 100 goal for exercise biking this month. Yay!
