Morning Laura! Hope the heat breaks for you soon! We have had a return to HOT, HOT weather also. YUCK! I want the 70's to roll in so I can enjoy the pumpkin season. Also.......HAIR......don't you hate it when you go in, show them a picture of what you want, pay and tip and then it is not exactly what you really wanted !!!!! But, it's only hair and will grow back. I'm sure you look as lovely as ever !

Enjoy your Sunday!

Laura, I hope you have a GREAT Sunday. So glad that your back is better! It sounds like you are back on track with low carb - you are such an inspiration that way. I admire your ability to get right back on plan with no excuses. That is something I try to emulate!

It has started raining here too, but the air is still warm, and with the smell of rain and the coolish breeze blowing through the house, it is kind of nice. Enjoy your evening!!

Hey, Laura! Sorry I've been MIA. I've had trouble keeping up with all my subscribed threads, then I took videos of the horses at the farm and I've been preoccupied with getting them uploaded on the Horse Lover's thread (if anyone out there is "one of us", come check us out on the playground.)

I'm still dealing with the dilemma of a bad haircut. Truthfully, I was cutting my own hair for about a year when I decided it was time to let a professional cut it. I'm no happier with it now than I was then. I'm tempted to take over and try to make sense of what I have to deal with.

My problem is I don't put time or products or anything into my hair. Can you imagine doing that and then going to work at a horse farm? In the rain, wind, baking sun, bug-spray environment? Me either. And if it's too long on top, it just lays there. So, I'm thinking one of these evenings I'm going to "fix it."

I have these things I bought called Crea Clips (sp?) and they are like a comb with a clamping action. Only trouble is I can't take my head off my shoulders and place it on the counter so I can do it well all around my head. Oh, if only I could.

Anyway, WTG on getting back on plan (who was the clown who ordered you egg rolls?) and I hope you get Autumn soon. It's raining here today and is supposed to be rainy on and off most of the week. At least over the days I'm working. The horses were stuck indoors today. Very bored and looking for something or someone to entertain them. I did my best.

Have a great night.

Didn't get back on plan guys...... have to confess.

I've been in a cooking mood this week and decided to just go with it...

Was hesitant to put it our there, don't want to cause anyone else to stumble. I just made a conscious decision, not binging or anything.

Had a great day Love the weather !!

Gail - hope you had a great Sunday. Your days seem so peaceful when you describe them

Debby - glad you felt up to going to church tonight.

Cheryl - I know you have been busy ! Video was so cute ! I used to cut my own hair too when it was layered all over It's easier to disguise the boo-boo's that way !

Greengeeny - you are so good to your boys and you have a HARD job too ! I bet you are tired when you get home. My DS2's Fiance is a waitress !

Have a lovely evening ladies !

Susan, my hair's not too far from what I wanted. just a slightly different cut ( layered more, cause I asked her to thin it ) my hair is super thick ~~ drives me crazy sometimes. But , yep, my hair grows super fast so anytime I don't like it ~ all I have to do is wait a few weeks and it is better :0

How exactly do they thin it out? I have never had thick hair so I'm just curious.

Okay .... since I posted and told you all that I was eating "whatever" and cooking last few days I can't stop thinking about 'why'
I don't have a problem going back to LC easily cause I really, really love the food and the way I feel on LC. But why do I tempt myself ~ what if one of these days I really can't jump right back on this WOE ?

I understand there is a link with carbs/wheat and Alz/Dementia and that keeps me motivated most of the time. I do NOT want to have this disease !

I also feel better and "lighter" when LC'ing. I just get in the mood occas to make comfort foods like I used to make all the time. My son about fell over today when he saw me pour myself a glass of sweet tea ! He said "since when do you drink sweet tea ?" I said 'I do every once in a while'

Anyway, told DH ( after reading more of my book, Grain Brain ) that i'm done. Splurge is over. DONE Didn't binge or anything. Just felt really bad after telling you all I was eating off plan. I don't want to pull anyone down or make someone stray off plan because of me EVER !!

Thanks y'all for always being there for me and supporting me no matter what ! I feel so blessed to have you all here ! I consider you all my friends

Laura - I was "off plan" since April and I knew what was going to happen and it did! Weight gain! I just got lazy about my food choices. When I was unhappy enough with the way I was feeling physically and with what I was seeing in the mirror, I went "cold turkey" back to LC. I didn't tell my DH until yesterday that I was making an effort to thin down again. I feel stronger now that I can stay on plan since I said I "said it out loud". You will do it also! We all have our good and bad days. And we all need support in our efforts. I am so glad that I came back to the boards! It really helps to get the "atta girl" now and then! Stay Strong Girl!

Thanks Susan ! You are doing great ! We are so glad you are back too

I have no problem going back to LC. I just made the decision to cook and eat lots of old favorites for a few days . Yep, I gained some..... not too bad though.

What was interesting to me was how GUILTY i felt after posting about it ! Back on track today...fixing to go to grocery store and get what I need to cook some yummy foods for work this week.

Friend at work has been out a few weeks after surgery - they just sent me a message and said let's do balloons and food tomorrow to welcome her back . I said "ok, I'll get lunch meat and cheese" bahahaha !

Another great morning here ! Sunny and 65 Loving it !

Isn't it strange how something can trigger feelings that make us struggle? At least you realized it was something in the posting about it. Apparently you feel very strongly that you might cause someone out there to stumble and follow in your footsteps. Don't sweat it, darling. All is well and you just go about your business and do what works for you. If you don't have trouble getting right back on LC after an indulgence, then don't give it a second thought.

Just wanted to give you a hug and say I'm still here! Been falling behind on everyone's journals. Glad you're getting cooler weather and your Tahoe is glistening now.

Hope your allergies aren't getting you down too badly. I was sneezing yesterday like crazy and my throat is sore - don't usually have seasonal issues, but I guess it can kick in any time. I can't find delicata squash either. Will need to go to a higher end grocery store I guess. Got an acorn squash from the Amish yesterday for $!.00 - it was yummy!

Laura, your honesty and rawness is what makes us love you. You are a true and dear person. Everyone has little slip ups for a while. It wouldn't be human to not err. BUT...you own up to yours. Me? When I slip up I avoid posting...something that I am trying to overcome this time around. It's easy so far because I have only really binged one time. You are such a sweet woman and I know you will be okay. Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! It is quite brisk here now, after rain for two days. Good weather for a walk, and yeah, it's making me sneeze too!

I should have gotten a bucketful of squash from the Amish at $1 each instead of a per pound price at the store! It was really good - I was wishing I had some leftover last night to snack on ! Going back to the farm on Saturday for sure!

Susan that sounds good ! Wish we had a farmer's market around here... enjoy

Thanks Cheryl, didn't sleep well. Guess I was still stressed...woke up with a headache. Drinking coffee now, feels like it's going away. I must have slept all tensed up !

praying today is calmer at work. I don't know what has happened last few months !! ER is so much busier than normal ~~ kicks my butt !!

Back history on this hospital : Had really close friends ( ER manager and Director of Nursing ) and they were both let go on the spot and es*corted from the building a few years ago. Devastated them both. They did nothing wrong. They brought in a group of what I call "head hunters" as CEO and CFO and they were just re-arranging positions and letting people go right and left.

Fast forward -- they let several managers go suddenly about 4 yrs ago again. Different CEO and CFO -- Named someone DON who can't even start an IV and has no people skills ~ someone that had no business with the position !

Yesterday, after she has refused to let people come back to work there who were AWESOME nurses and refused to let one of our beloved Dr's come back ( who worked there for 20 yrs ) ~~~ guess what ?? She got canned and escorted from the building herself. !!! It had nothing to do with the nurses and Dr but now she knows how they felt.!! They did nothing wrong.......

Ok enough of my rant. Lots of changes at work. Not sure any of them will be good ;/ Will just have to wait and see.......

Sorry to be Debby Downer this morning. I'm ok with it ~~ just hope the next DON isn't even worse.

You are not a Debbie Downer -- I think you are remarkably strong and you are being a really good sport about all that work turmoil. There is nothing worse than bad upper management -- and one that keeps making crappy decisions over and over again. I am sorry about your friends leaving the hospital that way -- that makes things even worse. It seems like you are loved and valued at the hospital so that is a silver lining at least.

Thinking of you, Laura. Hang in there!

Wow! Talk about a place that needs a Union! Disgruntled employees abound where you work. People need to be watching their backs. Ever thought about travel nursing? It's great because you can ride above all the nonsense cause you really aren't a part of the hospital. You're just doing the best job you can for your allotted time. Man, that was good.
