Good morning! I am having a great morning. I've been on on plan since Tuesday! Yeah me! Between the lack of carbs in my system and the beautiful weather we are currently having, I am feeling really good. I still have some health issues, but I'm much better at coping with them right now! Life is good!

MIM! Sooooooo glad you're feeling better! YAY!

Hi Yam!

Well, we're slowly gaining on DH's bad hip. We came home from the chiro with a Tens pain management unit. It's like the electrodes they hook you up to at the chiro but it's portable, about the size of an Ifone.
And his BFF told him about his Mom taking the glucosamine working so he's on board, YAY!

Woke up feeling crappy, now I'm thinking it's another cold and not a hangover

Irish Linguini from O'Toole's Restaurant and Pub
Posted at: 03/16/2012 1:16 PM | Updated at: 03/17/2012 2:20 AM

O’TOOLE’S IRISH LINQUINI

O'Toole's Restaurant and Pub - Albany, NY

Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup small diced carrots
1 cup diced cabbage
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups cooked corned beef, sliced and shredded
1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 cup white wine
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
2 cups grated Irish white Cheddar or extra-sharp white Cheddar
3/4 cup fresh peas, or frozen
1 pound cooked linguini
1/4 cup grated Parmesan


Directions
In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add the butter and 1 tablespoon oil. Add the carrots and cabbage and saute until they are just tender and the cabbage is starting to caramelize, about 20 minutes. Stir in the shallots and garlic and saute 3 to 4 minutes longer. Add the corned beef and black pepper and cook until the beef is starting to crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally during this process. Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Add in the cream, half- and-half, the mustards and the horseradish. Let simmer until the sauce has tightened up a bit, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shredded cheese and adjust seasonings, as needed. Stir in the peas and the pasta, then transfer into a serving dish. Serve immediately garnished with the Parmesan

I did it again! I've been invited to a parishioner's home for dinner tomorrow and I asked her for low carb options. She is going to have bbq chicken and green veggies. I will scrape the sauce off! I can't always do this. When my parishioner's are elderly I eat what I'm served. This woman is my age and I'm comfortable asking her to help me out!

On the down side, my dd fixed the corned beef and cabbage today and it was awful. It wasn't her fault - the meat was just way too salty! I've never had something that salty. And it is the same brand we always buy. So, we could not eat it. I'm so bummed!

Mim: Hope you can take it back and get your money back! Make them taste it at the store!! Good for you for being brave and asking for what you need/want. So cool. I'm proud of you.

Notice my new stats!! I have now busted through another digit!! Well, 2. I went from the 195 something to 194 something and also went from being down 34 something to being down 35 something.

Something to be said for taking it off, keeping it off, taking off a bit more and NOT SUFFERING AT ALL!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Mim, I soak my corned beef at least overnight, sometimes for two days, it really helps and you taste beef not the brining.
Good luck with your dinner.

GT, I was watching a documentary of President Kennedy's visit to Ireland in June 1963. The narrator said the Irish are not sentimental or overly emotional as a people........I find this hard to believe!

Yam YAY on the loss!

Low Carb Irish Cream
3 cups of heavy cream
1 pint Irish whiskey
1 tsp. instant coffee
1&1/2 tsp of cocoa powder
1/4 tsp of sweetzfree or sweetner to equal 1 cup
1 tsp. vanilla

I mix everything together in a sauce pan and heat thru. Store in fridge for up to 2-3 weeks.

47.5 carbs for total recipe


I wonder if it would be more friendly with fat free half and half..........

Davinci's makes a Sugar Free Irish Cream syrup. Did not get raves from folk here tho.....

Good Sunday morning! I've made a chart! I'm weighing everyday and logging it in my spiffy chart. I've been on plan since Tuesday and have lost 7 pounds. I'm on fire!

As I mentioned, I've got dinner at a parishioner's tonight and then at least one, maybe two lunch meetings this week. The meetings are at restaurants where I'll be able to order on plan food. Did I mention that I'm on fire?

ughhhhhhhh i totally messed up this weekend. I will get back on stillmans tomorrow. Do you guys think its possible to lose 30 pounds in a month on this diet? I mean i'll go hard core eating only turkey/chicken/eggs sticking to water and throwing in working out on top of it all.

My stats are :

5'8
weight: 165

my goal is to get back down to my weight of 130. I am going to be a maid of honor in my friends wedding which is April 28th (this year) so thats about 1 month & 9 days....do you guys think i have a shot?

any suggestions??? Also, if i eat salad would it really hinder weight loss?? i love salad and miss eating it when i attempt this diet thanks for all your help

I don't know think you can lose 30 - maybe close though! However, you will lose a lot and your body will lose lots of inches!

Good morning! How was everyone's Sunday? I had a fine day. Dinner last night for me was a chicken breast, salad, broccoli and brussels spouts. She had carrots too, but I didn't have any. It was a lot of veggies and I'm up .5 but that is ok. I felt like I needed some carbs - and the .5 will be off tomorrow and probably more! I'm on fire - burning the fat away!

runn, you can get close! Have a salad when you feel deprived but try to stay clean for the most loss.

Good dinner plan Mim, way to go!

Stuffy again today, no appetite...........blech.

Sweet you Guys are awesome I'm so glad to have found this place!
I had this AM 100 cals (1/4 pound) of boarsahead everoast chicken. I binged yesterday
So I did sprints this morning (felt so gross totally bloated) and felt
Really heavy and out of shape to what I used to be. BUt I did get out there and do it

Great idea I'm going to focus on inches! I am here at work all day probably
Will have hard boiled egg whites for lunch later ...

I'm also going to kickboxing class for 1 hour tonight


Keep you all posted! Do you guys mind if I post multiple times a day? I think it will
Help me stay on track if I am accountable to people

Thanks again

Danielle
