Thanks - it makes me very happy!!

It wasn't the best weekend. P was sick and parked on the recliner in the livingroom all weekend. She gets sick a lot - averages one cold/flu/something a month. I really look forward to my Saturdays as my day to decompress - no one is home, I can do laundry in my pjs and watch trash TV. I wasn't able to do that at all and feel a little wound up and stressed because of it.
She is going to the dr today, thank goodness, because I need her to go back to work for my sanity. Forgive me for sounding selfish and self-centered but I so did not want a 43 year old daughter.

I did come up with a fabulous recipr for individual cheesecakes! I found dispoasble aluminum tart tins (about 4 inches across). For the crust, I mixed almond fliur with butter to make a dough, then baked a thin layer in each tin. I mixed in packet of cream cheese with 1 packet of Crystal Lite Lemonade made with Truvia (Awesome stuff), a little HWC, and a spash of Torani SF Vanilla. After my crusts had cooled, I spooned the mix into each tin and put into the refridgerator to set up.
They were so yummy, and super low carb. I figured at 450 calories and 6 carbs.

Oh you are making me want some cheese cake! I make it with sf jello mix, cream cheese, and heavy cream.

Sorry about your weekend. I LOVE alone time! With kids though....... I get a few hours every few months .

Melissa, it was so good and because I opnly made 3 mini ones, it was easy not to be tempted to go overboard.

I am still plugging along with my EFGT ratios, keeping the fat high, the protein low and the carbs minimal. I am still trying to keep my calorie intake at around 1300. Sometimes it's a little higher but that's ok. It's getting easier and K has noticed a difference in my eating, She now asks is I want veggies or salad with dinner or if I've eaten all my carbs for the day.
PLus, yesterday we walked for two hours in a gorgeous forest preserve. I totally feel it today!

Aww sounds like a nice day with K

Mmm cheesecake! That sounds like a great idea - fast, tasty and in small servings. Smart woman.

Hope P is better soon and you get your space back

Thanks Tig! She is getting better, and I feel bad that I am over her being sick. Oh well.

Yesterday I ate:

Janet- here you are!!! Man I go away and I come back and the new journal is the place to be!! Dude we must talk 50 shades I crammed them all in, I liked Christian and started to hate Ana?? What did you think? Now I got that Nook and I am hooked I am so glad he got that free with his tires he bought, I need good cheesy romance novels, once I get through all this State Farm stuff I want to tear it up and read some more. I downloaded 2 cheesy ones, that were short reads for the ride home, you are my book go to girl, and D is my movie gal! I forget that I saw the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo the Swedish version of the movie, I liked that one better, so now we are waiting for the other 2.
OK that is all, I am glad you are enjoying LC again, I am doing it too, I was just thinking it has been over a year since I did VLC, WTH did I eat for a year when I was losing? I gotta find things that make me happy.

Hey there Janet. Sounds like a nice walk in the forest. I would have loved that.
I tend to be sick a LOT and I know I have to drive my hubby crazy with it. It's so difficult. I can imagine it would be a burden to have to give up your alone time to deal with that too. I hope she gets better soon and you can have your trash tv day again LOL!

Amber, glad you found me! Would you believe I haven't read 50 shades yet? I'm not sure why - I just haven't. I need to get on the bandwagon!

Diane, I sound like such a b**** when I complain about P. I know that I do. It's totally not her fault that she is sick, and I know that. I just value my alone time - I'm selfish I guess. We watched trash TV together last night so I got my fix!

And, TOM decided to show. I had no PMS symptoms which is a marvel. I would continue eating this way for that alone!

Funny you should ask amber! I was reading desertgals journal from the beginning last night and happened upon a post by you about exactly what you were eating when you were VLC and losing well!
LOTS of great wisdom from you in that thread! I have quoted what you wrote about food. ♥ Welcome To My New Low Carb Life ♥

Quote:
BB- I am not doing LC so much now but I can tell you what I ate I am very boring, I would fix the menu for the week, and shop and cook over the weekend, I like to have Tony grill the first 3 days meat for like M-W then it is quick to fix.

Breakfast was the same always- 5 cups of coffee with half and half and liquid splenda and an Atkins shake.

10:00-almonds

12- lunch usually whatever meat we grilled, maybe a chicken breast, a hamburger patty with cheese, bratwurst, hotdogs, you name it egg salad, chicken salad

3:00- usually a SF candy or LC bar- I get constipated with too much protein so I always ate them

5:00- meat, steak, chicken, pork chops, usually a good 10-12 ounces and salad with olive oil and feta cheese, kalamata olives, a huge toss salad,

8:00- cheese, or something like that- I was fond of the cracker barrell slices for portion control

I ate pretty boring all the time, just grilled meats, salad with dinner and shakes, eggs and bacon maybe on the weekends. I think simple is better, I really didnt track, just counted carbs and eventually knew I was ok, until I stopped losing, then when I was tracking I saw how few calories I was eating and I was working out. It really isnt a hard diet to follow, I think it offers good choices, the only thing I missed was salty crunch, Skinny crisps are the best thing I found, OMG they are so expensive but so delish the best cracker alternative! I would make egg salad, chicken salad with real mayo and hard boiled eggs, celery onion, etc, and just eat it with a fork. It was easy for the others they ate meat and salad or another veg we might have broc or asparagus, and then a starch I would bake them potato, or pasta whatever neither of them ever complained about the food. Sometimes I would say you guys get a pizza and they had their fix.
Woo Janet on no PMS! Thats fantastic. I can understand why you get frustrated with P. Its not just the ONE thing she does, its just all the little things that add up and annoy you. That whole straw and the camels back situation. Don't beat yourself up about it. You are entitled to your feelings.

Tig- thanks for finding that, I was trying to think about what I ate I will say I think working it is easier to control what you eat sitting around here I tend to think about food more often. I need to get some of those cracker barell slices again, I did love them and that was portion control.

Janet- I forgot to ask how the heck long is P staying this time? I still dont like that she is there for goodness sake!!!

Ya those cheese slices are awesome. I miss them!

Ok janet - remember like a billion years ago when I said I would try out that Yoga for regular guys - diamond dallas page stuff? Well. I've done the core moves video to learn wth to do, and tonight did the intro video (there are like 8ish short ones in the set I have). It was VERY doable. Anyone can do them - really. You can really control how hard you make it via the dynamic resistance stuff, and if you modify the lunges and other positions. I did most of the lunge based work on one knee and will work up to it.

He doesn't do traditional yoga by any means, but the moves are rather similar. Unlike most yoga, he doesn't make you sit in a pose until you want to scream - its a pretty quick transition from set to set.

I'm going to give the intro tape (energy!) a 2 thumbs up for the inflexible, outta shape and severely overweight.

Tig, thanks so much for letting me know about the yoga. I so want to order the tapes, but money is a little tight right now and I will have to wait a little while. Then it's just a matter of making myself do it which is a whole other problem

Amber, P is staying indefinitely. I know, you don't have to say anything.

Yesterday was a rough day for me eating wise. I ate close to 2000 calories and 60 carbs. I could not stop eating and am blaming TOM.
Melissa, I totally agree about the PMS. Not me, everyone else just loses their minds once a month.

WHAT????????????????????????????????
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to say it, LOL

OMG I typed something 3 times and I hit some button that deletes it! Errrrrughghghghg

So yoga sounds good, the thing I find with yoga is it helps keep you on track like you feel so good afterward you dont want to eat junk.

day 3 of vlc, I am doing this if it kills me, LOL I am losing the sugar craving, I found some dark chocolate I had hidden, LOL I had to rehide it and hope I forget where I put it again, normally I would have scarfed some but I said no!!! LOL

Have a good one Janet and get 50 shades read so we can discuss!!!! LOL

Hope you are having a good day Janet

This yoga is unlike any other yoga I have done, but I like it. The fact it is only 20 minutes (you combine the videos later so you do like 2 @ 20 minutes) and it goes fast helps a lot for the motivationally challenged among us.

I need to get those yoga tapes!!!

So, karma bit me in tha a$$. All my kvetching about P being sick and guess what - now I have it. Woke up with a throat full of razorblades and no voice after going to bed at 7pm last night.
And the scale is up. The only reason I can think of is that I have eaten Atkin's bars for the last two night as I didn't feel good and was looking for comfort food.

Blegh.

Feel better soon and don't worry about the scale while you are sick.

Well make her take care of you!!! LOL I had that and then when I lost my voice,that sore throat was the worst though, so get checked, in case you need meds!

Yoga is great exercise, for one it is good for people who cant stand the jarring on their joints, and you go at your own pace, if you cant hold a position for 30 secs to start work up to it, but at least it is a start!! I find it very mentally relaxing!

Hey sweetie. You have every right to be cranky and feel like your space is invaded! You and K are such true friends!!! It's awesomely good of you.

PMS Sucks and I hate those days of the mean hungries when nothin you do fills you up!!! I'm sitting on my hands right now cuz it's a DD and I'm fasting till 6pm. OMG, God's gonna have to pull me through this one, cuz my tummy thinks my throat's been cut!

Yeah, wish I could do yoga, but I'm not there yet!

I haven't read 50 Shades either. What's it about?

You girls are all amazing and so talented!!!

I am home from work today, which I hate. I always feel super guilty when I call in sick even though I never abuse my sick days. My throat is just raw and I've lost my voice.
But I was smart enough to get sugar free cough drops and cough syrup!

My plan is to sit on the couch, take a nap, and play on the computer. Sounds like a great day if only I didn't feel awful!

Alrighty, I'm a total boob that I didn't know you had a new journal. Here I was wondering, Where is Janet? I'm not getting any notifications for her journal! (Duh, right?)

Anyway, yay for a new journal!

Yay, glad you found me Ang!

After getting a good night's sleep last night, I feel so much better. Not quite as razor-bladey in my throat.
Weight is exactly the same at 177 and I am blaming TOM and being sick.
