Well, my weigh in today was 223.2.. up 6/10ths of a lb. Not worth some wings. Of course to be fair, I did eat 2998 calories yesterday, and the last bit was 4 ozs of extra sharp cheddar cheese, which put me over 2,100 mg sodium. Either way, it's water weight.
Today I already did a 2 hour walk, burning 795 calories, and then drove to get groceries, so my brother could sleep in, which he is still doing at 11:45. I had to buy air fresheners, and they had a smell called Holiday Cookie. I didn't think that was wise..lol. Lunch and dinner are chili, so getting 2,664 calories in today. Gonna watch football today, and relax, read more of the Hobbit today. I also put 8 Murder She Wrote books on hold, and hope they will get here by Tuesday. On Tuesday morning we have to get the brakes fixed. They said it would take 3 hours, and it is within 500 feet of my house, and luckily my brother is off after 2 classes tomorrow, until next Monday. That will be a huge relief. Right now when you brake, the whole front end shakes. I guess they can do our oil change too, if they are willing.
I got a small roast for Thanksgiving, and plan to cook it with some vegetables. My brother plans on having mashed potatoes, and gravy, and we'll probably have a few side dishes, but I can't have potatoes. I will probably be a little high on carbs that day, but want to stick to carby vegetables like carrots that I can cook with the roast, along with onions. I don't want to go crazy on carbs though. So besides olives, carrots, and onions, does anyone know a lower carb choice to have with roast beef? The beef is over a lb each, so I don't need much. I just don't want to be sitting there with a hunk of meat on a plate. My backup plan is a salad, with HB eggs, and bacon.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and tomorrow is exactly 11 years since I got out of the hospital in 2001. Of course at that point, I was on oxygen, had a hernia, and had just been told I had 6 months to live. Diabetes was in my near future. So you can imagine all the things I have to be grateful for. Plus Thanksgiving is probably the most low carb friendly holiday. I just skip Christmas dinner, and eat regular meals, so this is the last holiday meal I have to worry about for the year.
Well, hope you all are having a great weekend, I will be weighing in again on Tuesday, and I am hoping for a big drop.
