Day 9 Atkins

Monday, July 29, 2013

Join me?

Made chicken wings for dinner last night. yum! i'll put the recipe in the induction
recipe thread.

man they were good.

We tried the cauliflower pizza crust Saturday. For all the raves, I thought it would be wonderful, but it was just okay. Maybe I had a particularly bitter head? is it better with frozen?

I felt good enough to go to boot camp for the first time since starting Atkins, and did fine. Yea! Sounds funny but I really missed it. Especially the stretching we do!

Gave up trying to get in on that 5% Challenge. I asked about it a couple of places and all I get are smiles or post likes. So, I googled it and it sounds like you have to be "invited" to join. (That's what my fight club post was about) Seriously people? It's like a private club? Am I wrong? Wouldn't know, no one answers questions about it lol Not interested in something that excludes people, and don't find it in the spirit of Spark. I will stick to open challenges everyone is welcome to join.

I am down 2lbs since starting atkins! woot! and got to redecorate my page. I went with a summer nautical theme this time emoticon

    Pizza, eh?

First make this:


Then you can make this:


Cauliflower's a great sub for potatoes, but not so much for bread. For that, you need cheese!

    Sounds like you're doing great! emoticon Have the carb cravings gone away for you? They had gone completely for me after the first week. The chicken wings sound good. I may also try cauliflower pizza, using the frozen cauliflower and a food processor.

Congratulations on the 2#! emoticon

Sorry, don't know anything at all about the 5% challenge.
