Suzanne, I'm sure that they all enjoyed the food you fixed for them!! Hope you had a restful day away from the football frenzy. My Ravens won! Just barely though...what an ending!!! Whew!
I can say that I stayed on my LC and didn't have any spare ribs with all that yummy sauce on them! (sniff) lol I didn't cheat once this weekend. So wonder why my tummy feels so full....back to the gym in the morning! Maybe that will lighten it up! :)

fortunately for me, my dh went to someone else's house for a football and poker party emoticon . i am having a day of doing absolutely nothing!! it's been awesome. i am now waiting for my jalepeno shooters to cook. they're delicious. jalepeno peppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon....totally low carb and i may be a bit addicted to the spicy little noshes of goodness.
reading the third book of the trilogy, the girl who kicked the hornet's nest. i love when i can read a whole series one after another and get right into the characters. i'll be sad when i'm done emoticon
my dh is going to vegas on tuesday. i wonder if he'll be in your place kristin?
kind of selfish of me to enjoy him being gone all day today when i get the house to myself for 5 whole days this week. what can i say? i love him to bits. but it's always fun to have some me time.

That's wonderful, Debb, that you may get into long term counselling soon! You've been waiting for it forever!

Glad you're not beating yourself up, MrsBobbibjd. Sometimes we just need some time off, no harm, no foul.

Hi everyone. Had somewhat of a "cheat" weekend, and for some reason I'm perfectly okay with it. Usually I would be so hard on myself, but I wasn't - even knowing that what I did will delay progress a bit. My husband and I went home to visit our families, and it was wonderful. I didn't take any books or practice questions home with me, just flashcards that I barely looked at. My batteries are recharged (for low carb and studying) and I'm ready for the week ahead. I hope you all are too.

Interesting! Apparently it's based on an older English saying: "Sow an act, and you reap a habit; sow a habit, and you reap a character; sow a character, and you reap a destiny."

It's good to have you back, Debb. Have you ever been tested for gout/hyperuricemia? You might have a touch of that in addition to physical damage if you notice it getting worse when you eat off plan.

Not watching the game either. Can't root for Baltimore (not that I'd want to anyway) but don't care for the Niners either. Hang in there, Russell. Someday!

Got us to church this morning - feeling much better than I did last Sunday - and took some video of my son directing the choir. It's part of his Senior Project work. He's doing very well, considering he's a musician and not a singer. :)

Have a great day, all, and enjoy the game (and commercials!) if you do watch later.

well, the game is on too late for me, even if I wanted to watch it. But no interest, sorry.

Finally got this computer back up and running (it seems it was the monitor; I hope that's all it is!), so I will be spending the next little while (it's 6:30 pm here at present), entering info into our accounting software so I can do the month-end paperwork for our business. Looks to be a great month, too!

I had THREE walks at the park with my "puppies" today, and got lots of fresh air. Feels good.
And still on plan! WOO HOO! Today is Day 5.

My left ankle has been bothering me for years - you'd think the weight gain and ensuing pain would have had me back on track quickly, but no... I seem to, sadly, be into punishing myself for some odd reason; hopefully starting my long-term counseling in 3 weeks will help. I am very hopeful!

Anyway, the ankle -- it started bothering me years ago, but every time I had tests, my heart rhythm was going out. and it scared the h3ll out of me. So I stopped, at that time, bothering with the pursuit of fixing it. Anyway, the heart rhythm has been sorted (albeit a temp fix, as it cannot be cured), and the ankle has been killing me.. worse since my recent binge. :(

Saw a specialist a few weeks ago, and will have an ultrasound in 2 weeks. The X-rays showed a misaligned heel, and a torn tendon, meaning I walk totally flat on that foot, and everything is out of whack. It will likely require surgery, but first steps first.

Meanwhile, even if they are short, I am taking walks and not sitting on my bum, feeling (too) sorry for myself.

Thanks again for your caring and support, Everyone, not to mention your patience with me! You've helped me return to where I need to be.

Huge hugggggs.

I'm on my second relaxing, normal(ish) day of the weekend. I can't believe how long it's been since I've had the pressure (internal and external) lighten up this much. I'm hanging at home today with the boys. I don't want to go anywhere! I'm going to finish cleaning out my car (started yesterday), do laundry, putter with other chores, and I am definitely going to watch the game! Seattle didn't make it, so I guess I'm cheering for the Niners by default! :)

I plan to watch the game at 10:30 tonight, after my brother gets home from the pizzeria. I already told him he can't eat any pizza in front of me. I have already cooked up some chicken, tomatoes, and onion for lunch and dinner, so I can microwave it to warm it up, and watch football.

Amazingly the football is still great, even without pizza! We also have a Thanksgiving day game here yearly, and parties for that too. I have no idea why people eat junk food at these. You have a 50% chance to be bloated, and angry because your team lost. Higher for me, since I am a Lions fan..lol ( 80% ). So I don't go to any football parties anymore.

I am rooting for the Ravens. I have been a fan of them for years. I wanted Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl, but the Ravens will do.

I'm not a football fan, but I work in a casino in Las Vegas.....so SB parties are a huge part of my day today! I hope you all have a fun time watching the game and take the time to enjoy the company you share instead of all the foods you shouldn't be eating! :) It'll be so much more enjoyable after the game to not be beating yourself up about what you ate during the game! The food at the Vegas SB parties is always so amazing. I just plan on staying away from it all completely. ha

Suzanne - Who is your hubby rooting for? I'm for the Ravens because I live in MD, but my 'team' is the Redskins. This is the first year in a long time that they (Redskins) have done anything; but, next season, watch out!! RG3 is terrific! Anyway, I'm headed over to watch the game with my daughter and 2 grandsons (2&4)..not that the kids will watch, of course! lol I'm making up my LC snacks to take along with me, plus a big, juicy burger. My daughter and her bf are going to have baby back ribs with all that nice, yummy sauce on it! No worries though, I will stay the course!! :) Hope you all have fun, even if you don't have any interest in the game! T

They had two chances to engage my interest - The Indianapolis Colts lost in the first playoff game, and Peyton Manning (who used to play for the Colts and now plays for the Broncos) made it through the first playoff game but they blew the second.

I'm with you. The Superbowl means nothing to me. So we will be watching movies. :)

We have a big super bowl party today, well, my husband does. I have zero interest. I will help him prepare the food. Andrew has hockey and not much else. I guess the party prep will take all day.
