Sorry you are so sick. The awful weather you are having can't possibly help.

Your cooking experiments sound yummy.

We are in an eating out mode every night through the coming weekend! Still have company in town from the holidays and people want to entertain before our friend leaves next week. It's fun, but really have to watch what I eat during the day and then stay low carb for dinner.

I'm sure the insurance business is probably busier with the problems the freezing weather causes.

Ughg yes girls I went and the Dr said he has not seen sinuses as bad as mine in ages, so I got antibiotics and Flonase, so now have to eat some greek yogurt and work in my probiotics the only good thing is when you cant smell or taste I have no appetite so food is not an issue, I am just chugging water and eating. School was closed they said it was -15 with the windchills the actual temp was -5, it was terrible going out to the doctors but have to say I was glad I was not at work!

So today I had
B- 2 eggs
L- Greek yogurt
D- chicken and artichoke and I steamed some green beans.
Drank 5 liters of water and some coffee and slept, my hair is so scary!!! LOL Robert says I look like someone from the walking dead and I have to agree! My boss is taking me for the shopping and spa day on Sunday so I want to feel better for that! But yes I am glad I got it now so I dont have it on the trip!

Amber. you poor girl! So glad you got medication, the flonase doesn't work fast but it really helps keep your sinuses in good working order once it kicks in. I really hope you better soon! On the other hand, yay, for no appetite.

When I read the comment about your hair, I made such a sad face, I'm so sorry you're going through that. Hang in there, take your vitamins (all of them) make sure you;re getting enough protein and enough calories.

Hey Amber, hope the antibiotics are kicking the snot out of ya!

Nice LC recipes there for getting one's "fix" for hoagies & pizza topping. I found a recipe for crackers involving almond flour & cheddar cheese that I will try soon. Maybe I will make them the same time I make homemade dog biscuits, just in case they are awful I can give them to the dogs.
Crunchy crackers are my downfall.

Have fun in LV, stay away from the sugars and starches and don't cave in to them just 'cuz you had a few cocktails, stay the course!

Nancy

Oh girls I still feel so bad, I went to work and left at lunch time, my head is so heavy and my eyes and a headache, and guess what else, 6 days of strict low carb and I started bleeding again, I have not had a period or spotting in months, as soon as I go low carb I bleed, I know the dr said I have PCOS even though I had no trouble conceiving but what a correlation when I go strict low carb I get a period! I mean honestly I have not been this strict in some time, I am weighing tomorrow so I will see how much I lost. But man if they could find out what all my hormonal crap is maybe I could eat normally!

Nancy- I miss crackers too try them and let me know!!!!

Since I still cant taste I didnt eat much again today

B- greek yogurt
L= sausage pizza bake
D- beef on lettuce

Maybe some coffee and more yogurt tonight the antibiotics are tearing up my stomach so I have to keep eating that

I think I am going to stick a pork loin in the crock pot tomorrow with a jar of peppercicni.
The boys like the pork then pulled with BBQ sauce they can add themselves.

Holy crap I had to look at the scale twice 12.5 pounds not getting too excited since it is mainly the bloat I gained over the holidays but I will take it! The problem will be here in week 2 and then we leave for Vegas, I really dont want to eat so bad in Vegas that I am on the hamster wheel of just gaining and losing! I have to lose 8 more pounds to get to where I was in Nov of 2012 which was still heavier but I have been stuck at these weights since Sept 12, I really have been naughty and not sticking to anything, so I have myself convinced that I must do this, and I must get back to exercising like a nut, and now with being sick I have not been to the gym, so this weekend if I feel better I am going! I still cannot smell or taste! It is really good for the diet!

8 more days til Vegas!!!!

Yay for the weight loss!! 12.5 pounds is awesome, you're on the right track, keep doing what you've been doing (except the sick part).

I've found Greek yogurt to be quite satisfying as well. I use a little Honey flavored xylitol and chopped pecans on top (just 2 tbls). It tastes good and feels like a treat.

I really hope you get to feeling better soon. The flu is now in San Diego...I'm so afraid of getting it with my asthma issues and stuff.

I'm so sorry you're still feeling crappy, Amber. I hope you're better soon!

I know it's so hard to feel motivated when you're not feeling well, but 12.5 lbs down is great-- all weight loss is good weight loss CONGRATS!

I'm thinking of breaking out the crockpot this weekend. DH's brother gave us a bunch of deer meat, some ground. My father always tried to pass off deer meat when I was a kid, and I could always tell-- it tasted funny and I've avoided it since. But I need to branch out with lean meats, so I'm thinking chili with black soybeans. I'm going to roast leftover deer chop bones and make a stock for it first.

Oh so sorry you are still sick!! Be careful working out, don't push too much too soon.....I gave myself pneumonia last year by working out too hard and too often with a bad cold. Take it easy!!!!

Hey Cee I am glad you are back!!!!!

So yesterday at work was terrible my boss's husband works there and he can be a ******! But whatever I swore I would never work for a husband and wife again and here I am, but she will reign him in!

Yesterday
B- Greek yogurt and protein shake
L- leftover green bean, beef sautee
D- Kale salad, and beef tips I ate those cranberries in the salad, probably should not have but they were good!

Doing pretty good not eating at night, that is when I really want to stuff something in, so I am drinking I have a huge 1.5 L Evian bottle and I am forcing myself to drink that at night!

Next week at this time Vegas!!!!

So now we found that game on FB that you play vegas slots and the comps can be used for real rewards in Vegas so we are playing like crazy, LOL

So yesterday was miserable here just rain downpour all day but at least it was warmer! I made chicken picatta for dinner, I pounded the chicken breasts and an egg wash then sauteed in the pan, I made a sauce of a little white wine, lemon juice, chicken stock and butter and capers it was delish! Today is the day my boss is giving me money to shop at the outlets then brunch at the Hershey Hotel then spa treatments at the Hershey Spa, my main challenge is Hershey is hello chocolate world, so I told her she must not let me eat any sweets or bread!!!!! So looking forward to today, I need to get busy with packing and deciding what I am taking to Vegas I am hoping to find a cute outfit to take with. Shoes are hard in Vegas, you want to wear heels but there is a ton of walking so not really practical! I need low heeled boots. All my heels will never fly in Vegas!
