I'm glad to hear you had setbacks, that gives me motivation and promise that just becase i fell off no reason i can't get back on. Im still just as motivated and have been eating LC all week.

Thanks for the tip too, going to the gym on saturday was awesome, it felt great, now just gotta get my baby boy not to wake me up at 3am so i can go to the gym at 5... i really want to try and go tomorrow morning!

I believe that, I struggle with thinking "am i doing enough" "did I work hard enough" I know that just the fact that im going is good, and I believe that as I continue to go and get stronger I will push myself more, only time will tell i suppose

How long after starting your workout did you get a trainer?

I totally want it! I love making deserts! ESPECIALLY when i can eat them on LC!

Cassidy, I got my receipe from low carb luxery website, i'll post it below:

Ingredients for Pie Shell:
• 1 cup almond flour
• 1/4 cup Splenda
• 4 tablespoons butter, melted
Ingredients for Pumpkin Filling:
• 1 can Pumpkin (not "Pie Filling")
• 1/2 cup Splenda
• 3 tablespoons Diabetisweet Brown Sugar Substitute
• 2 Eggs, beaten slightly
• 3/4 cup Heavy Cream
• 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 tsp Cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon Cloves
• 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
• 1/8 teaspoon Ginger
• 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom or Allspice (optional)
Prepare pie shell: Melt butter in a small bowl. Add almond flour and Splenda. Mix well. Press firmly into bottom and up sides of 8 or 9 inch pie plate and refrigerate until firm.

Preheat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix all filling ingredients in the order given. Use your own judgement about spices — some like a more cinnamon-y mix and others like less. This is your call, but amounts listed result in a rich, aromatic "classic" mix."

Pour mixture into prepared pie shell and place in preheated oven until center tests done (about 45-55 minutes — ovens vary.) Allow to cool completely before serving.

This pie must be kept refrigerated (there's no sugar to act as a preservative), but this pie is amazingly delicious!! Top with artificially sweetened real whipped cream if you like (I do!) This pie is at its best the 2nd day!

Makes 8 servings. 8 net carbs per serving.


I didn't have the almond flour/meal so i ground up raw almonds myself in the coffee grinder haha. Its so yummy!

I know i hate it! I had a cheaper daycare but wasn't please so we had to switch, we went from paying $95.00/week to $150.00/week. Its infant only daycare and she only has four babies. its ideal but it HURTS! Plus i cut my hours back to be able to pick up my kindergartner after school so i'm not making as much money and we are spending more money then expected. BOO!!!

Here it is
Did you know that pumpkin is a low-carb super-food? This low-carb pumpkin roll with cream cheese filling is a sugar-free and low-carb version of a traditional pumpkin roll. It freezes well, so you can pull it out for guests. I like serving it with whipped cream and a sprinkled of toasted chopped pecans.
Yield: 15 1" slices
Ingredients:

1 cup almond meal
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon allspice
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoon unflavored geletin powder
Sugar substitue equal to ¾ cup sugar (liquid forms of sucralose or other zero-carb sweeteners preferred)
1 cup canned pumpkin
4 eggs
¼ cup oil
½ cup water
Filling
1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup sugar-free maple syrup (see note with filling instructions below)

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 375° F.

1. Prepare pan - line 10X15 inch jelly roll pan (nonstick preferred) with parchment paper. I like to use butter under it, at least around the edges, to "glue" it down. Then butter the top of the paper as well.

2. Mix dry ingredients well. Add wet ingredients and beat for 2-3 minutes. Pour into prepared pan.

3. Reduce oven heat to 350° F. Bake for about 15-18 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake - you don't want the top to be browned, or the cake will be too stiff to roll.

4. Cool in pan for about 5 minutes. Then, cover with a clean dish towel and flip the whole thing over. Carefully peel off the parchment paper. Now, roll the cake in the dish towel, starting with a long side (so the cake will be long and thin). Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, mix up the cream cheese, vanilla, and syrup. Adjust to taste - if you want the filling sweeter, you can add a little more sweetener. Make sure you use a syrup that you really like - some of them are nasty. I like the ones made by Maple Grove the best - there are a number of brands including "Vermont Sugar-Free".

6. Unroll cake, but don't try to get it all the way flat or there is more of a danger of breaking. Spread filling on cake and roll the cake back up. Cool completely in refrigerator before serving.

Nutritional Information: Each serving has 2.5 grams effective carbohydrate plus 1.5 grams fiber (4 grams total carbohydrate), 5 grams protein, and 151 calories.

Hun what powder are you using? Beverly international is very good and you can use almond milk and ice, very good and I am picky!!!! The Atkins Ready to drink shakes are good too I think. I get them at BJ's where they are a little cheaper, I use my blender at home and the Ready to drink here at work!
