It's MONDAY! What Are You Eating Today?
Today is a snow day - yay! I'm actually very relieved as I would have been terrified driving with Charlie in the car!

A quick question - I had a coffee with friends yesterday, the shop had no sugar free syrups and no splenda so I had to use sweet n low - I know it's bad health wise but is it low carb? I found it a bit odd that the first listed ingredient was dextrose... it didn't spark any cravings and my weight is still going down so I'm hoping it was ok as a one off. Gonna have to buy one of those little splenda dispensers for these situations.

Breakfast: Two eggs scrambled in butter with smoked salmon, lemon juice and black pepper and a coffee with double cream and dulce de leche da vinci.

Lunch: Prawns mixed with mayo and paprika, lettuce, cucumber, onion and tomato.

Dinner: Pork tenderloin with a mustard cream sauce and buttered asparagus - saying that, I'm almost out of cream and I'm not going out in this weather so it might have to be just pork with mustard lol.

Snacks: Peperami, babybel if needed.

Plus at least two litres of water and a berocca.

Morning: 2 eggs, 3 slices bologna, 3oz cheese
Night: leftover roasted rabbit, salad with lettuce and argula, probabily some homemade pesto too since the leftover rabbit is sort of dry

Good morning. Wind chill advisory. Poor PJ and Poor Pat...........LOL

Amber, I have no idea about the AS you asked about. I usually count 1 carb per packet of any AS.

I decided to only weigh on Sundays. The scale has great power over me and I want to give it less.

B eggs/scrambled with crumbled bacon
L Sm salad w/ some shrimp
D Steak and mushrooms with butter
S? 1 oz smoked gouda cheese

Thanks MsWoods and Patkid, that's good to know. Went a bit ott though, I used 4 packets in my large coffee! But I missed lunch so total carbs would have balanced out lol. I almost always use sugar free syrups which are zero carbs so I'll know for next time. :)

The snow is melting but it's still bitterly cold and icy. It is fun, I went out sledging and built a snowman but the novelty has worn off now, I would like things back to normal please!
