BLITZ XXXI Oct 1 thru Dec 31, 2017
lost all track of time. begin using this Blitz at once. Good fortune to us all! Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Gibbs 10-02-2017 02:58 AM

Good morning. I've been awake since 4am, just not out of bed.

Thing 1 and the kid up the road finished tied for last place in their fishing tournament. But they had fun.

My goal for this Blitz...not to step on the scale until the end! Yep, I don't see that happening either. :hyst:

flatferenghi 10-03-2017 05:12 AM

me neither, Gibbs!
I can gauge my progress every time I put my pants on. I will get weighed at the doctor around New Year's. it is still warm in here, as soon as I turn off the fan. chances are, I will be able to start cooking again by Christmas. Love & Profits: FLATFERNGHI

Abigale 10-04-2017 07:46 AM

Thanks FF for getting the new blitz started!:shake:

DH and I got off to a good low carb start on Monday. Bacon and eggs for breakfast and a beef stroganoff concoction for dinner both nights. Dinner tonight will be hamburgers. Hard boiled eggs for snacks.

Chris, sorry thing 1 didn't win but having fun is what it's all about. I may weigh once a week if I feel thinner.:weigh:

FF, wish I had some pants that feel loose. Thank goodness for stretch pants.:hyst:

Haven't eaten much the past week...every time I eat my stomach hurts. I think it's stress. All though I can't say that's having any affect on the scale. Still going down very very slowly.

Here's hoping we all have a good Blitz!

flatferenghi 10-05-2017 02:43 AM

i think i put on about 10 lbs.
actually, it's my beard. i'm gonna have it removed tomorrow, if I don't trip over it first. Love & Profits: FLAT(santa claus)FERENGHI

The old man brought me a Subway salad at work today. :) And it's a good thing, I forgot to bring something.

It's been a boring day, not that I'm complaining, but I'm ready to go home.

Abigale 10-05-2017 12:35 PM

Sweet of your husband Chris.

Boring night for me last night.
Sometimes due to scheduling my dept does not have work and we have to help out in other areas instead. ugh

FF, most of the guys are just getting their winter hunting beards going

Gibbs 10-05-2017 01:53 PM

It's officially deer season, no shaving til New Year's :laugh:

Gibbs 10-06-2017 03:14 AM

On that no shave note, the old man had a stress test yesterday and they shaved his chest. It looks funny. Good thing it will grow back, I like his chest hairs. :hyst:

Abigale 10-06-2017 11:31 AM

Hope that new stubble is not itchy!

Low carb soft tacos for dinner. The house smells delicious!

flatferenghi 10-06-2017 03:13 PM

i actually look good with face hair.
but it itches, and makes my face feel very warm. I am having it off on Sunday. they are open from 7:30am till 6 pm. also I get the senior citizen discount-$15.00 for shave and a haircut. it was not too long ago when the price was 2 bits. gonna have my Chinese repertoire for din din.

artemis19 10-06-2017 04:33 PM

My dad's a deer hunter too! I'm not a huge fan of red meat, but I have always loved venison, especially the tenderloin.

hi guys,
just came from my oldest son's house...all the kids and grandkids were there to watch the baseball game...fun night...ate the insides of a steak bomb sub and some chicken wings...

been eating very low carb but too many calories i think as the scale isn't moving although my clothes are fitting looser...

mediations are so busy, i'm not getting home until late evenings most nights...good to see everyone hanging in there...my goal for this blitz is to get below 220 lbs. by the end...it's been way too long!

not sure if i posted this before, but it's emmy and our two little flower girls...:hugs:

flatferenghi 10-06-2017 09:59 PM

DEER season?
I thought it was WABBIT season! Wove & Pwofits: FWATFEWENGHI

Gibbs 10-07-2017 03:41 AM


Am up early this morning, can't sleep, so I'm enjoying coffee and music while the herd still sleeps.

Thing 2 has a bowling meet today, need to buy him black slacks first. Why!! Looking nice is one thing, let's hope they're comfortable.

I guess I should try and make a grocery list out.

tony8 10-07-2017 09:25 AM

Chris, what kind of music do you like?

I've lost my water weight getting back to low carb and am down 4 pounds since Sunday!:jumpjoy:

Tony, my goal is 5 pounds of FAT this blitz. Sure hope DH stays low carb for the duration.

I brought more wood into garage this morning and stacked it on the rack I put together. Hope it stays together.:confused:

tony8 10-07-2017 03:46 PM

Nice rack, abs! ;-)

congrats on the 4 lbs.!!! good goal for this blitz...

i hit the gym this morning...overdid it on leg lifts the last time i went and hurt my quad muscles...hadn't been in about 10 days and it was a little harder than usual...probs not helped by my low carb woe...happy i went and my legs feel like they are getting better...

have some oven fried chicken cooking and treated half with a hot oil mixture - trying to simulate nashville hot chicken...vincent and i love it...we'll see how it turns out!

Abigale 10-07-2017 11:44 PM


I made some copy cat chick filet nuggets before we went strict low but also fried about 10 nuggets using a low carb recipe They were not bad. Will marinate in dill pickle juice next time like I did the copy cat recipe for more flavor. The low carb version was 1/3 cup each of parmesan cheese, finely crushed pork skins, and almond flour. Dipped them in egg and milk first.

Gibbs 10-08-2017 03:32 AM

Good morning!

Music is usually bluegrass, yesterday was Ozzy' s Boneyard on SiriusXM, classic heavy rock. The kids call my choices old lady music. :hyst: The old man does too. Add the 70's and the classical music and that's my usual choices. Anything but country, :laugh:

Today's plan, absolutely nothing. Except coffee, gotta have my coffee. I'd better do some laundry, the herd may appreciate it.

artemis19 10-08-2017 10:23 AM

Did some window shopping for house stuff this weekend...mostly things I can't afford! Haven't been able to go to the park at all because it's been raining both days.

I'm planning to go back to intermittent fasting this week. I have two months until my birthday and I'd love to drop some serious pounds by then. IF has always helped, and I hope that it'll help me save some money on groceries too.

Gibbs 10-09-2017 03:29 AM

This week is only 3 work days Do Dah Do Dah
I know that you sang that too Oh Do Dah Day

Abigale 10-09-2017 11:07 AM

I did sing it Chris but have to work 5 nights total. Hoping our dept is still on the no overtime list.

DH weighed today and was bummed he only lost 3 pounds all week. I thought that was good but in the past when he stays off the carbs he has seen a bigger drop.

Abigale 10-09-2017 11:08 AM

Artemis, I recently did a couple of months of intermittent fasting and had some good results.

Abigale 10-09-2017 11:10 AM

Tony, how did your and Vincent's Nashville hot chicken turn out?

Gibbs 10-09-2017 03:27 PM

Momma got a new office today, real walls and everything! No more little cubicle!

srmil30 10-09-2017 05:03 PM

Hey guys,
We are off to California in the morning. The Marine is finally returning from his deployment!!! :jumpjoy::clap::):jumpjoy:
I have been trying to stay on the bandwagon but have failed miserably. :(:sad::annoyed::o:annoyed:
Hopefully, will be back on it after he returns back after his leave but of course with the holidays it is not going to be easy.........
Will try to update my progress when I return..

tony8 10-09-2017 10:03 PM

congrats on getting your son back, sara!...have fun in cali...

abs, the chicken was amazing!...after an egg wash and light breading, i basted the chicken with a mixture of vegetable oil, cayenne pepper, black pepper, salt, paprika, garlic and onion powder...it was HOT and Vincent and i enjoyed it!...tell your husband that i said 3 lbs. is awesome!

good luck with the i.f. artemis...if i were left to my own devices, i would eat like that all the time...it messes with my blood sugar, so i have to eat more regularly than i'd like...

chris, congrats on your office!...how is ozzie osbourne "old lady" music?...haha

sarah LOVES chik fillet!

watched the game at my oldest son's house tonight...emmy joined us for a few innings...nice time!

artemis19 10-10-2017 04:48 PM

New office, woot woot! When I started at my current job, it was the first real office I ever had. I think I'm the only one in our office who doesn't have theirs decorated. It just seems like a lot of trouble. I do have a couple of orchids that haven't died yet.

First day of IF was a success. I lost 1.8 lbs. I may play around with IF on some days some days regular. My body gets adjusted very quickly.
