Yopu can always grab another hotdog if you are hungry. If the baby is fussy and you need something fast and easy...

On the topic of eating out, I used to literally eat out every day, often twice a day. That was just our lifestyle - my husband doesn't cook at all, and I CAN cook, but I hate doing it! And we didn't have any kids yet, so we had disposable income and a flexible schedule. I never had trouble finding something low-carb at any restaurant. Protein, fat, and non-starchy veggies. Steak with green beans. Chicken wings with non-sweet sauce (even buffalo sauce is fine). Pork chop with broccoli. Bacon cheeseburger with no bun, salad instead of fries. Eggs with cheese, bacon, and sausage. Fajitas with no tortillas or rice (meat, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa...).

I do the same thing! I usually find it to be cheaper too, since I can buy a few ingredients in bulk. Then after a couple of weeks when I'm starting to tire of it, I just switch to something else..

If im hungry later..might make the cheese french toast that Jilly talked abt earlier for DH and I for dessert. I just explained to him that I talke dto u ladies abt my dilemma and that starting 2day I decided to not track cals and he looks at me and goes "Umm so if it workedfor you a long time ago to lose weight...why the heck would u try to change it in the first place?". Lol I guess thats a good point. Maybe cuz I assumed it only worked cuz I was a 100 lbs heavier then? Who knows. I guess we will see how I feel etc next Sun
Sounds like good food choices!! Kudos to dh for being supportive!, mine doesn't agree with LC. But he's from a third world country where they NEED carbs to stay alive, and only rich ppl are fat.... Yet another reason why I want to lose this weight while we are apart, so I can prove to him that it DOES work!

Those are great options, but watch out for the fajitas. I used to work in a Mexican restaurant and they often use a lot of sugar in those marinades...



FYI, that bacon beef roll is AWESOME!! I put a bit of LC ketchup on it, so about 4 net carbs, plus a nice salad. Mmmmmm . Oh, and it freezes too! I made 2 and froze them before cooking, then just tossed one in the oven tonight.

Hi everyone - some really great options being brought up. . I had cabbage and onions with a boneless chicken thigh and a piece of steak tonight. Burgers for lunch.

My personal challenge is getting all my college work done while also making sure we are all fed well, house is reasonably clean/neat, and caring for my munchkin who doesn't really nap.

Breakfast for me is often Greek yogurt with a packet of splenda. Sometimes I mix in some pb instead. I have a microwave steamer that I use on veggies for quick nights, or I'll steam them on the stove if I have more time. I also love making up a large salad with either slices of steak or chicken.

I made crestless quiche last week that I make in muffin tin and those are an easy to grab breakfast or snack. Same thing with the cream cheese muffins.

I have a really yummy flax pancake mix that could double as a good bread sub if needed - let me know if anyone is interested.

People keep telling me to drink Ginger ale for the morning sickness, but I do NOT want the sugar in regular soda and do NOT want the aspartame or splenda in the diets. Thrilled to find out Zevia makes a Ginger Ale! I'll be trying that one in the morning!

I drink a lot of diet soda, too. I didn't in my first two trimesters, though, because that was actually one of my weird pregnancy symptoms: diet Pepsi, which had been my favorite, was suddenly repulsively disgusting to me! What an easy way to ditch the soda early in my pregnancy

Junk food is done from the weekend (MIL brought me a cake, but luckily, it's not that good!), so back on track first thing today. Happy Monday, all!

I told you to buy ginger root and put it in water and drink that. That is what I did, it helped some. The point of drinking ginger ail is for the ginger, so...
For those still drinking soda, I would try to make that a priority.
Soda has a sweet taste and will triggger your insulin. Your body does not seperate fake sugar or real sugar, it reacts to the sweet taste.
I am a former soda addict, so I know how hard it is to kick the habit, but if you really value your health, it is worth it.

I'm down to one diet soda a day or less now that I'm pregnant for the most part. I try not to buy it a lot. I'm drinking a LOT of lemon water lately.

Ok, plan for today
B: deviled eggs, coffee with cream
L: ground beef with cheese and salsa
D: chicken breast with ranch, broccoli
S: cheese, natural pb and protein shake if needed.

this is how i make it. brown up the burger with some seasoning (i usually do worchestershire sauce and some lawry's montreal steak for flavor). set that aside in a bowl and then sautee the pre-shredded cabbage it in either beef broth or water. let that get all wilty and then drain it. toss it into the bowl with the burger and stir it together. put it all back on the stove to warm it up, add in a few spoonfuls of sour cream and a handful of shredded cheese, stir it together, then serve it in a dish and top with ketchup. another option is to smush in cream cheese into the cooked burger before adding the cabbage.

I made half a dozen hard boiled eggs last week and ended up only eating one, so not appealing to me right now. I guess I should toss them? It's been over a week. What's the life on hard boiled eggs?

Im headed out to the store cuz I didnt realize im outta Chia seeds. Im obsessed lol.

Gab... I make a single serving of a flax bread that is just 1 egg and 2 tbsp of flax in the microwave and then toast it under broiler and use PB or cream cheese on it. Is that similar to what your recipe is? I love it but its def very eggy tasting lol

DP... Great menu... I had deviled eggs and a cpl pieces of bacon when I woke up... gonna finish breakfast with a shake when I get home from the store. I guess itll be more of a snack by that time lol

Jilly... way to get right back on track!! How was baby playdate?

Ughh Jax had a bad no sleeping night last night which makes for an extremely long and tiring day for me today. I didnt get in any of my kettlebells workouts yesterday so I am bound and determined to get one in 2day. I really hope he naps atleast twice. If not then I guess Ill have to do it as soon as DH gets home 2nite.

Menu Plan:
B: deviled eggs and bacon, coffee with cream
S: Chia seed shake
L: Chicken coleslaw mix, cheese, deviled eggs
S: PB and celery (if needed)
D: I guess Ill try the crack slaw lol since I was planning on using cabbage 2nite anyways

Oh that sounds good..both the crackslaw and the eggs with hummus. I used a little too much mustard in my eggs but they were still good. And they are gone

Hot today and just came home from the park with the kids.

Who wants to mow my lawn tonight. Being hot and pregnant makes it an awful task!

Yes we do and they mow our front lawn but not the fenced in back and I take the kids out there. I have a sand/water table and sprinkler, etc... It has to be done.

And here too we have to wait until evening to be outside a lot, unless it is only for a short while. We were at the park for 30 minutes at 9am and we were all a sweaty mess. I've had to move my walk to right before bed. I'm not complaining though, I like the heat

We do too. I get to the pool or beach on the weekends and try to get the kids out for at least 30 minutes a day for some exercise. Doesn't always happen though. The kids don't mind to be hot but I sure do

I am lucky, my husband has 6 months paternity leave, so he tkes my older son out to play tennis or golf everday, plus they spend a lot of the day in the pool. I am going to bummed when he goes back to work.

Hi ladies!

I'm down to 167 this morning.. Although that might be due to a nasty stomach virus that has me running to the potty constantly but at least they put me on quarters for the day..

Gonna have some tea to try and calm down my tummy, so no coffee today and I'll see what won't make me queasy. They gave me a list of things to eat to make me feel better: bread, crackers, rice, fruit..... Yeah right.

How is everyone today?
