wow. my last blog was a long time ago.
i worked out every single day until christmas. christmas, i did not work out. and have not worked out since then. [more on that in a bit.]
i may have only walked, but i did work out. even christmas eve, when i got up at 2.30 am and left the house at 7am for new york, i walked for 90 minutes.

christmas eve, i saw 151.4 on the scale.

that really rocked, considering that over the course of the week of christmas, i stayed low carb and managed to make 13--yes, 13--batches of cookies and ate 0.
i also made lots of yummy stuff to take up since i was tasked with making the vegetarian meal--half my family is vegetarian as well.

at 3 am, christmas eve, i was making my favorite appetizer of all time and i was even able to say no to those. i was going off low carb that day anyways, but at 3 am, do i need to be scarfing down food? no.

so, we left for new york and got breakfast at burger king. there is just no way to do traveling for a low carb breakfast, considering i dont eat eggs. so i had some hashbrowns and some orange juice but threw some away.
for lunch, we had mexican and again, chips and salsa but i didnt eat as many as i wanted.
the rest after that is a blur of food.

christmas day, we left new york for home and got here at 12.30 at nite. put stuff away, ended up going to bed at 3 am... next morning we had to go get the dogs and though i was considering going back low carb, i didnt. it took us 2.5 hours to get his truck and the dogs due to the snow. i got back home at 12.30 after not having had breakfast and just said to heck with it.
although, truth be told, i didnt eat many carbs. i mostly ate cashews.
the 26th, i weighed in at 159.

the 27th, i weighed in at 158.
and i also went back low carb.
didnt work out.

now, for anyone that knows me, everyone knows that i have a food problem.
food will ALWAYS be an issue for me.
i always get myself back to working out first and struggle with the food, getting the calories back to where they need to be.

except, i was so pissed off about weighing almost 160, that i just went back low carb and it hasnt been an issue.

today, i weighed in at 154.

unlike what my mother in law said when she visited me over thanksgiving, i do not think that my weight going up when i am not doing low carb has as much to do with me eating like a "pig" as much as my body drastically reacts to carbs.

i am not concerned about me not working out. i know that will come back when i am feeling up to it. ive had really bad migraines since christmas eve and just havent felt like doing it.

sunday for sure.

thats about it. thats where ive been.

im going to stay low carb unless we go to eat or something. i think that is the plan as it will stay. if we go to eat, im just not going to order a salad. it doesnt make me happy doing that.
home will be low carb.
i also plan to stay around 25 carbs and under for the forseeable future. again, unless we go to eat.

    Great test of willpower and you asserting yours. You are becoming stronger. You have to manipulate the carbs to get the results you want and you are doing a great job of that.

    I must have missed the mother-in-law blog. I can't believe she told you that! You've been doing great Dee, and I'm sure that you're right, your body is reacting to the carbs and holding more water. I'm proud of you for getting right back to your low carb lifestyle. emoticon I'm also glad that you're putting your health first and taking time to "rest". Congratulations!
