Long December

Sunday, December 09, 2012

Oh my I am so ready for this month to be over. The stress of the holidays, the stress of eating is about to get the best of me. Sorry for my absence (again). There really is no excuse but I have been crappy.

Yesterday I started low carb (some of you that might follow me on facebook may know this already.) Yesterday was good. Today I'm starving. I know it will pass but O.M.G. give me a cookie already!

Just kidding. I mainly am doing this to kick my sugar cravings. I can only hope that this works because I am hanging on by a thread.

Oh and something else that is making this carb deal difficult is that I have to watch my cholestrol intake. If I keep it below 300 daily I will be happy. Goodbye normal eggs. I cannot eat egg whites alone, so yesterday I bought some eggbeaters. Pretty good, no cholestrol and low in calories.

I know it sounds like I'm rambling but I'm at my moms on her computer and I'm in a hurry. I hope everyone is doing fabulous! Love you all.

    Hey girl! I am on day 2 of South Beach, which is low carb, and I ate two eggs yesterday and I couldn't believe the cholesterol count. Egg beaters are pretty good as a substitute. Glad to see you are still on Spark. I took a little break but I'm back. I also can't wait for this month to be over. It feels like December has been going on forever!

    Very interested to see how the low carb works for you, especially with the low cholesterol component. And I have to say, the berries backdrop here is really beautiful :-)

    Ramble still gets the job done. Keep that determination and you will go far.

    It's really tough this time of year. I'm having more difficulty than usual. Weight is creeping up a couple of pounds. Sigh. We can do this!!!

    This IS a crazy month..just do your best. FYI-eggs will NOT raise your blood cholesterol!!! They are nearly a perfect food. Inflammation from too much carbs and therefore insulin production necessary to bring down those carbs will cause plaque to build up. The body is trying to heal itself. So, enjoy real eggs(with yolks) and cut back on the refined sugars,breads,pasta,rice. You'll see results!!!
