Forgot to tell y'all I found some Isopure Vanilla protein powder - Zero Carb !!

I ordered erythritol, protein pwd, and Swerve ....can't wait for them to come in. Expensive, but worth it !

I hear everyone say stuff about protein powder, and even see recipes using it, but have been afraid to buy some. Kind of expensive, and without knowing brands, Im afraid I would buy something that wasn't right. Let me know how the Isopure protein powder is. Did you order through Netrition?

No. Through Amazon. This will be my 1st time to try this one, so I only ordered 1lb - I got my last one at Walmart and it was 3 carbs per scoop ( or maybe 2 ) ?? But, they don't have it anymore or it got changed. All of the ones there were 6-9 carbs per scoop !

You & DH need to eat at one of those malls where they have all different types of food, choose what you like... actually, my dad used to always order american food when we went for chinese... funny guy... he finally discovered how good chinese food was in his 70's! talk about a stubborn man!

The malls around here have no 'whole foods' just lots of processed stuff !
Problem is, DH wants to eat off of the buffet, not order from the menu.

We are fixing to head out and go shopping again ! Wish me luck !

Thanks so much for the horsey picture on FB, Laura. You know how I love the equines. The snow, not so much.

I hope you find something good to eat while out with hubby today. I'm sure you will.

Well, I had a chicken fajita salad that wasn't good, but that's ok . You just can't get good food OUT anymore ! Frustrating.

We were just buying Christmas for Shelby and a few stocking stuffers for our kids and DIL and DS2's fiancee..... and my brother's kids. But, We invited DH's stepmom for Christmas and the girls at work said we are exchanging gifts and 2 clerks at work are involved too.....

and there's the sweetest housekeeper at work, she is the most amazing Christian woman with a smile on her face all the time and such a sweet,sweet spirit !! We both just love her!! I have known her for years ~ DH just met her a yr ago when he started working there. He gave her fresh veggies all summer and made a friend for life !! She loves him so much Her daughter doesn't live here and she's not married , so I especially wanted to get her some things and will make her up a mix of my goodies I make. She makes brownies and cakes for us at work all the time ( I tell her how good they are ~~ because I have eaten them so many times over the years and I KNOW they are good. But, I never touch them ) i think she will retire this next year and she had to work Thanksgiving and has to work Christmas too. ;/

Sooooo......... I had lots more gifts to buy !! lol ! I bought lots of cute scarfs ~ they are the "thing" right now here That was pretty easy and they will all get cookies, fudge, peanut brittle and toffee too

DH said " boy you are spending a fortune on all this stuff for food you aren't even going to eat !! " I said, " I know" lol ! It gives me joy to give homemade stuff to others .

Not sure if we'll go to Costco or not this week. We spent lots of money today :0

Have y'all read that thread called " fudge recipes ? " You mix cake frosting with different kinds of choc chips, cinnamon chips, heath chips, etc..... and it hardens up to make "fudge" ! I bought tons of kinds to make different flavors how easy is that ?
And, I found a great LC recipe on the thread " chocolate fudge" -- can't wait to make that for me to enjoy !

okay I'm through rambling...... hope you all had a good day

Laura, you are truly such a lovely lady. I love how nice you are to the housekeeper. And how much you enjoying caring for your children and grandchildren. They are lucky to have you! And, gosh, you have great willpower to make all those delicious sweets and goodies and not give in to temptation! Good for you!

Thanks Gail. No biggie. I really miss the peanut brittle, kind of a tradition that I love, but no desire to eat it !

I was never much into peanut brittle or things like heath bars or stuff that really stuck to your teeth. Nowadays, I'll eat anything that falls into my lap. I can pick my teeth later.

I am so happy to have my days off! I'm on day #2 and I am so relaxed that I can't even get vertical for longer than it takes to walk to the bathroom and the kitchen and back to the bedroom. Days off seem few and far between but when they come, I blow them and don't get anything done.

I think by tomorrow I'll be ready to rise early and get moving. I will go to bed uber early tonight so I can at least fall asleep before midnight.

I hope so ! Shame to not enjoy them....although I know you are tired and enjoying your well-deserved rest

Walked Allie today and made my LC lasagna and have 2 roasts with potatoes and carrots in the pressure cooker now.

Made LC fudge
Made candied pecans (LC)
Made easy peasy fudge with cinnamon chips and frosting None for me, thanks :0
Made homemade toffee

Think I'm done with baking for today ! Still need to make molasses cookies and Santa ( sugar) cookies with Shelby . Will get those done later this week.

May wrap gifts tonight. We'll see. Enjoying sitting for a bit now... may walk Allie again before dark. It's nice outside

Go Laura! Good for you getting so much done. Hope you took time to rest sometime in there!
How great for you, that its nice outside. It was fairly nice out when it was my exercise time (4 pm)... but so dark! Kind of takes the oomph outta my sails. Kind of need to see well when I ski.

Morning all !

Woke up super early with a headache and took something and went back to bed till 9 Headache gone !

Have someone coming at 1pm to bid some work around the house, then we may head to Houston and do some shopping.

Supposed to be 52 today so nice day !

Scale is still bouncing around 137.2 - 138.0 !! Ugh....making me crazy. DH changed the battery recently so it's not that ;0 Really want to hit 133.5 before the 1st, will keep trying !

What are you all doing today ?

Me? Not much! I saw we were cross-posting on my journal. I didn't reply to you cause I figured I'd be visiting you over here anyway. I got my remote car starter to work again! All it needed was a fresh battery in the remote. I was afraid the whole system had tanked. And I found the charging cord for the self-car-jumper thing I own so I can get that charged and ready for whatever comes next.

Second winter storm in two weekends coming tomorrow. I heard back from the manager. She doesn't want me to bring my dog so staying overnight on Saturday is out. She said I could come early, bring the horses in early, feed them early then get home early. I'll go with that plan.

52 degrees sounds perfect to me. I'm glad your headache went away after your meds and going back to sleep. Enjoy your shopping in Houston!

Hey Laura! You are really doing well! I could not make all of those treats and keep away from them! I made that mistake at Thanksgiving and I am paying for it now. I hope to get through Xmas without falling into the over-eating frame of mind. Glad the weather is cooling down for you so you can enjoy a brisk winter chill in Texas!

Hey Laura,
Glad your headache went away! Hope shopping didn't bring it back!
I took it easy today, waiting for my furniture, doing books... nothing exciting. Just what I needed!

Just got home about 11pm ...... I posted some on other threads while I was waiting for DH ~ we stopped off at NH so he could give his Mother her BD card... it's on the 20th and we are working ( It's also our Anniversary ! 31 yrs )

Got LOTS of shopping done today Went to Camping World. They had some awesome Rocking lawn chairs that were so comfortable for my back ~ we saw them a few weeks ago and DH said let's go get them I just love them ~ regular lawn chairs make my back hurt so bad

Went to Costco and got membership and bought lots of neat stuff. Man, their meat is expensive though... only bought chicken breasts and hamburger meat ..... got lots of other good stuff though

Ran into Walmart and got stocking stuffers and last of my baking stuff I needed ( things I didn't find at Costco )

Had a wonderful supper at Texas Roadhouse They are the best ! I had a BIG ribeye and caesar salad and green beans.... Yummy ! And , I ate it all

Hope you all have a good night. Staying home tomorrow to make cookies and more fudge,toffee, and peanut brittle. Will talk to you later !

Morning ! Beautiful day . 60 and super sunny !

Staying home and plan to walk Allie lots today She was so upset we didn't take her to Houston yesterday ;(

Forgot to tell y'all. Costco has so soooo many of the things that I have to order online.
I saw Flax seed, coconut oil ( I got a big 54 oz tub ) , hemp ( never tried it, but I will now ) , all kinds of nuts/seeds, protein pwd ( LC ) , etc..... will be great !

Good day today, but boy I'm tired. I was a busy girl again today

Got lots of candy/desserts made ~ double batches of most of them. Made up cookie dough for Shelby's (santa) sugar cookies and my molasses cookies. She just loves to roll them and use cookie cutters. She has no fun when I'm mixing up the ingredients

Only walked Allie once, really nice out ~ but Snickers came over and SHE worked Allie over Allie is pooped now

hope you all had a really great day !

Wow Laura, I don't know how you make all those sugary things. Guess you're the only one on a clean diet in your family? I refuse to make that stuff. DH is not a 'sugarholic' like I was, so he's fine with what is given to us... that sometimes takes years for him to eat. I do usually bake pies for Christmas dinner, which everyone loves, except me.
Glad you had fun with Shelby too... memory-maker!
Hope you get a good rest tonight!
