I have been trying so hard to get my hubby and oldest son on board with low carb, but it just isn't working! It seems like things go ok fr a few days, then I find taco bell wrappers in the trash, or one of them lets it slip that they had a midnight hamburger snack.... And from horrible fast food places. I think the two of them bond over being buddy buddy keeping secrets from mom a bt too much. Today I get home all ready to make chicken provincial and find that they order a pizza for a snack! Not lunch, not dinner, just a snack!! My sons excuse was that he had to use up his free coupon. This is right after I just had a seemingly heartfelt talk with my husband about not encouraging his son to do this! DH is mot likely over 250 lbs and only 5'11".... DS is about 230 now at 6'2".... Seriously a big boned kid, but this is all in his gut! I feel like just giving up but I can't! At least not my son.
So, that is my vent for today.

Well, I am finally back to where I was before the potato debacle and the Super Bowl! Only took a week, so I feel good about that. I will try the potato thing later, after I get a little closer to my goal. I think I had poor timing, being only 2 weeks into one type of eating, then switching to another completely way. Live and learn.
I was going to experiment with making some low carb bread today, but when I was at fresh and easy they had the mahlers brand one carb flax bread!! This is awesome!! I use to have to go drive a ways to get some, but now it is practically on my doorstep! So I should figure out something else to bake, since it is so freaking cold today!!
My Bassett is driving me insane right now. He got a bit flea affected, so I just put some advantage on him and he is whining(much more than usual, and quite loudly) because they are dying and probably biting the heck out of him! His whining is about the same as hearing nails on a chalkboard! But there is nothing to do but keep tossing him doggie treats and telling him he will be ok! Poor thing.....
Well, off to check homework and make sure the kids have clean clothes for the week. Then big ole pork chops for dinner! Mmmmm.....
Off to e great week!

I knew I was in ketosis before I even peed on my ketoskix this morning! I woke up with that strange energy, a few minuted before the alarm went off. I have a nice warm happy feeling. I am in a good mood... and I am making a big huge tri tip for dinner! (Maybe I am just looking forward to dinner....) It is a busy busy day at work today.... got a huge truckload of supplies that I have to inventory and put away. And untangle ten tons of work orders! Fun. It is quite cold in the warehouse, but at least I am not sitting in front of my computer on my BUTT! For once...
Happy Hump Day!

I had a great horrible weekend! I ate too much, but tried to keep it half way low carb.... my hubby brought home pizza and I had one piece (but only ONE) and I ate some bread sticks, 2 actually. I drank lots of beer, though. However, I had PLANNED on this, as though it was a holiday and I do not feel too bad. The scale yelled at me though, it wants to know why I am 3 pounds FATTER!? I told it to shut up, things will be lighter soon. And it will.... I am being very good now!
My Hubby and son are so lucky... they get to go see The Who tonight!! I am stuck going to a Boy Scout meeting...

Well, I started off this week very positive, and indeed I have been very good on my eating habits. I repeat, my EATING habits. However, I have been nipping at vodka tonics every night. I just get SO stressed the second I walk in the door after work and feel ENTITLED to a drink or 4! Entitlement is an extremely bad habit. I am really just a lazy weakling that needs to get my act together. Thank goodness I am holding steady at my weight... I lost 9 pounds since the first, but had I been a good girl for the last week and a half, it would have been much more. I am actually back in a mild ketosis, surprisingly! I need to figure out how to meditate or do some yoga or something, but I just cannot seem to relax myself enough to do so. How does everyone relax??? There has to be some way besides the bottle.
I have some demons to overcome, but I will keep being honest about my downfalls (and progress, I hope) here on Spark and hope I can overcome!
