12.26.12, Low Carb Diet Journal

I woke up because I had to make sure my youngest daughter was awake. She needed to be at work by 11 a.m., and she had a two hour drive ahead of her just to get home. She never goes anywhere without her shower so I took the opportunity to relax and enjoy a cup of tea. When she was ready to hit the road, her sister, dad, and I were the only ones awake to say goodbye.

I was able to enjoy my second cup before the rest of our guests showed up. My husband took care of the coffee and tea so when it came time for breakfast, we had some leftover ham from dinner. My family loves diced ham and scrambled eggs so my husband fried up the ham and added eggs to it. It was my job to fix the toast. We had some homemade white bread as well as some of the best smelling cinnamon raisin bread. I smothered butter over all of the slices, cut them in half and then placed them on saucers which I set on the table. Since I did not intend on eating, I did the dishes while everyone else did. Once everyone finished, there was a small amount of diced ham and scrambled eggs left in the bowl so I ate them. I did not bother to weigh them but when I finished I realized I was hungry so I grabbed a chicken breast out of the refrigerator. I did not bother to weigh it and my daughter shared it with me anyway.

My daughter and son-in-law left around noon, after spending a couple of days with us. The house was thinning out leaving four of us for awhile. My sister's girlfriend had plans to meet her mom and sisters at the local casino and my sister was not feeling well so she stayed to visit with me. She woke up on Christmas day with a cold so with it being day #2, she was not feeling well at all. Even so, we spent the entire day chatting. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

My Journey Back to Slim Day 4

Today I decided to design this plan around my own desires and needs. I don't really like breakfast and the coffee w/heavy cream will be enough unless I'm going to the gym around noon. I want to avoid getting too hungry before I get home after working out. Still haven't got that figured out, yet.

I also like to eat a light dinner, early. This worked out better since I was satisfied and not too full in the evening.

Breakfast: Coffee w/heavy cream
Lunch: Grilled steak

3:00 Snack: Radishes, cucumber

RM Dinner @5:30: Popcorn sprayed with Butter Spray, Large apple w/cheese slices,
1/2 large tomato. Didn't want anything else even though I
could have. Hmmm.

Exercise: Gardening

My Journey Back to Slim Day 3

No question about it. This is the right program for me. Today I didn't take my usual "cat nap" after a heavy load of carbs for lunch. In fact, I didn't even have lunch at all. Had planned to do a snack, but got busy and didn't. Usually I feel starved after a gym workout, but today I had breakfast about 10:15 and worked out at 12:00. Waited till 6:30 to eat with my DH. The scales are slowly shifting downward and my usually too-tight-jeans were almost comfortable today.

Pre-breakfast: coffee w/heavy cream

Breakfast: 2-egg omelet with green onion , mushrooms, sausage, cheese and
peppers

RM Dinner: salad, lamb steak, beets and beet greens, zuchinni with swiss
cheese, fruit salad. oreo cookies

Exercise: Regular gym work-out. Added some reps. Did balance exercise.
Otherwise same as Monday.

My Journey Back to Slim (Continued)

Don't feel like eating "junk" at all. Even when I'm hungry, I just have a glass of water and tell myself I need to wait for dinner. Think I would like to have a small snack at 3:00 tomorrow. Will see how it goes.

Breakfast: Coffee w/heavy cream
Lunch: Steak, cucumbers and radishes w/salad dressing as a dip, green beans.
RM Dinner: Large vegtable salad with a huge tomato picked right out of my
garden. Pork rinds w/sour cream. Homemade blackberry pie
filling w/plain yogurt. Red delicious apple off our tree with cheese.
Exercise: Gardening. Weather is great!
