Hi everyone!
I finally managed to get one solid low carb day under my belt yesterday. It's been a long time since I've done that, and I'm pretty pleased with myself. I feel motivated to start day 2. One day at a time!

Day 2 and Day 3 were successful! Today was tough. I was feeling emotional, and fought off some pretty strong sugar cravings. I know that any day now, I'm going to feel that "switch" click over and this will get easier!

Thanks Monica! I am feeling good about this week. 4 days down. Still fighting cravings...but it is TOM...i am very pleased that I haven't caved. I feel like I am in control again...but I definitely am eating a lot. Still in that early phase where I eat all these low carb food cause I'm hungry...soon my appetite will lessen and then il. Really feel like I've got this. I won't weigh until Friday...no need to make myself crazy with the up and down!

7 days down! I lost 3 lbs this week and I'm pretty pleased. I'm still not 100percent in the zone, but it gets easier every day. I'm in a 30 day challenge with my girls on the challenge board, and that is making a difference. My goal is 30 on plan days. Doing it!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather was beautiful for Mother's Day. We had a good time, even though it was bittersweet. We live next door to my SIL who is sick, so we grilled burgers and hotdogs with BIL and the kids. She was able to come out for a few minutes, but she is in a lot of pain. We made the best of things...
I was a bit "loose" with my plan, so today I'm jumping in strict.
Hope you all had a lovely day with those you love!

She stays home with me, and I have a sitter to take care of her while I work. It works well. When I'm in the office she goes to a daycare that is right across the street.
I have a terrible sore throat. I actually went to the dr, thinking I had strep, but no. It's something viral. The only good thing is that the only thing I can manage to eat (drink) are protein shakes...I'm not hungry at all thanks to my low carb days this week. I might as well enjoy it while it lasts!
Jacqueline got hearing aids today. So far we don't notice a difference, but it will take a few weeks to get it adjusted, so we are hoping they will help.

Thanks Kitty!
Monica,
Jacqueline was diagnosed with auditory neuropathy at 3 months. Basically, the nerve between her ear and her brain is not working properly. For kids with neuropathy, it's hard to tell what degree of hearing loss there is, because their hearing ca. Be intermittent (think loose wire) and what they do hear can be garbled. She is going to have an MRI when she turns one (it requires anesthesia so I wanted to wait until then) so they can get a good look at the nerve. After they do that, they should be better able to talk about treatment options.
She does seem to heat a little, which is why decided to give the hearing aids a shot.
She doesn't let it get her down, in any case. She is a happy, social kid. What a love!

Thanks Monica.
I still have my sore throat, though it is a bit better today. I hope it is better by tommorow. I have to go to Chicago on business next week, and it is a drag to travel while feeling under the weather. I am also trying to make a plan. It can be so hard to stay on track at a conference. I'll pack some Atkins bars and do my best!

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the same beautiful weather we have here today.
I read something interesting last week. It was about making positive changes. The suggestion was to pick a small change and commit to doing it for 14 days in order to build momentum and get going. If you mess up a day, you start over, because the important thing is to honor the 14 day commitment to yourself. I am going to try it with excercising since I struggle so much getting going. My small (SMALL!) goal is going to be 14 days of "intentional " walking which to me means things like parking far away, talking even short daily walks at lunch, getting up and walking around the building every hour, etc. yesterday was day one. I took J for a mile walk in the afternoon. I plan to do that again today. I also have plans to go to a friends jewelry party. (Stella and Dot, never been to one, so interested to see what it's all about). She lives in the city, and Parking is always tight, so I am going to park away from her building on purpose and walk. Next week on business, lots of walking through airports and in Chicago, so I figure I already have the first week of this challenge in the bag. .
