www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ol28kPTqa4 i don't know why woubbie, but, your desktop pitchfork made me think of this yogi bear cartoon. a catchy little tune to clean by i thought my dh had a grasp of what we eat, but, last night he called and asked what i wanted from the store and i said, "dinner." well, he bought pork chops, a big bag of potatoes, carrots and bananas jeez. i am never going to get him trained. i am reading the south beach diet. it's different than atkins. don't agree with all of it, but, alot of it is interesting and useful. i'm in a chapter where bread has been alot of the topic and i did find myself wanting a yummy sandwich with some fresh whole grain artisan bread. but, we don't have that, so, i didn't. although perhaps it's more that i had carrots and potatoes for supper and my body went, "yum, can i have more carbs, please?"
I am looking forward to the day when I do not feel like I am just barely treading water in this job... I have resisted putting in more than 40 hours a week because of the other client work I'm doing and because I am afraid that it would become a norm and hide the real problems. Anyway, I am doing better today. I am breathing, my tension headache is gone, and I have churned out some checks and small tasks.
Debb, I understand your eating issues! You hit some of my food weaknesses... Sometimes I just want a normal sandwich! Sometimes I want to quit labeling food good or bad and just eat. I think the LC thing feels normal to me, but I find that it still takes planning and organizing to make sure I have enough protein available to transport to work for breakfast and lunch and a snack. Tearing into a baguette (with butter)... well, that used to be MY therapy! :) Hang in there, Debb, and thank you for sharing your derailments as well as successes.

Debbie, it is good that you are sharing your bad days now . You used to just disappear. For who asked, I actually live in quebec, but we are skiing in jay peek Vermont. It has a huge indoor water park, so when I go ski after lunch with my older son, my husbandvtakes the baby to the water park. I will not go in water parks, they gross me out. There is also a huge arcade here, so Andrew and his friends go there at night. Right now, James is napping so he will be all ready to swim later.
Haven't be on skis in decades but loved it way back when... have fun, Suz!
Had a not so good last night, food-wise. :( There were a few leftover sugar-free candies about and I wanted them -- not really, but saw them and THEN wanted them, if that makes sense? So, true to my additive personality, I ate them all. Maybe about 10? Then my cravings kicked in and I bought cookies, a pint of ice cream (still an improvement, as I usually by 2-3 pints), and a crispy baguette. All in all, I felt like crap the whole time -- buying it, eating it all, and then my stomach rebelled. UGH
One hand, it's awful. On the other hand, I bought - and ate - less than half the garbage I usually do when on a binge. AND EVEN MORESO -- I am back on no/low carb today.
No idea why, but I'll take it. Had steak for brekkers and lunch Prime rib, yummm), will have diced turkey (or is it chicken I defrosted?) with shirataki nooodles, cream and a bit of cream cheese.
How do you all feel about dairy? I have avoided cheese recently, but not sure if i will continue to do that. I do, however, have some heavy cream with my decaf coffee now, but no sweeteners.
Anyway, I feel good about getting right back on plan. What a change for me!
Enjoy your Wednesday, All!
Serves me right, especially after over 2 (but not quite 3) days of no artificial sweeteners, UGH was I not well. Reminded me VERY fast why I am dropping all that stuff.

What state do you live in Suzanne? I live in Ocean City, MD and today a storm is coming through. However, we are not getting 'hit' very hard, like some neighboring cities. We are getting a lot of very gusty winds and rain, but nothing major so far. A good 'inside' type of day, but I'm still debating whether to venture out to the gym for my work out. Will wait another hour to decide, since my class isn't until 11:00. Have a day! Hopefully, you'll be able to use that grill of yours soon!! Trish
That soundsuke so much fun suz! We have an I service day at my college but my cooking class is catering it my group is making vegetarian curry it was yum without the rice! But I k ow now how to fatten this recipe up! To make it really good and add shrimp!
We are having a great time skiing this week. We all had the stomach flu the first day, but now we are all good again. The weather is great too, not too cold. However, I hate my burgers fried in a pan. I miss my grill.
