A nice Easter today, had lunch/dinner with my son, just him and I - it was nice for a change. Unfortunately, the meal was completely un-traditional - and way too many carbs, but~~~ such was life for today.
Tomorrow it's back to the straight and narrow for me - I'm committing to the month of April, but hopefully through the spring and summer... hoping some good habits will stick with me. Slacking off here lately, gotta get back on track!
EWEFLUFFY IS NOW KICK-SS
TODAY IS THE TOMORROW YOU WORRIED ABOUT YESTERDAY. GET ON WITH IT!!
BEFORE YOU CAN START A NEW CHAPTER - YOU HAVE TO FIRST TURN THE PAGE!
We had the whole family over for Easter and to celebrate james' first birthday. Was a great day! My husbands cousin who is very over weight, started Atkins last week. I am so happy for her. And I gave her lots of tips to help her out. It was so nice to have another burger eater at the table today! I made a flour less cake for James. He played with it, but did not eat any. I should have just served up a regular old cake.
Our Lower Carb friendly Easter feast is; Appetizers: deviled eggs (no sweetener), cheese log (8 oz cream cheese, 2 T butter, 1/4 c cheddar cheese grated, 1 tsp season salt and a dash of worchester rolled lightly with chopped pecans) served with celery sticks, green, red, yellow peppers strips, summer sausage cubed and cheddar cheese cubed
Entree: Baked ham cauliflower with a little cheese sauce asparagus roasted with olive oil and parmessan cheese Green beans and wax beans steamed then butter added and toasted almonds yams (1/2 per person) with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon tossed salad (no croutons, carrots or cheese) with Caesar dressing or oil and vinegar
Dessert : Atkins recipe mini cheesecakes with a dollop of whipped cream sweetened with stevia and either 1 sliced strawberry or a few blueberries plenty of chilled water w lemon or herbal tea.
We don't celebrate for weeks yet, so it's just a quiet day at home again. Going to get my younger son to do some long, long, long overdue paperwork for both Scouts and school. (He spotted something online that he REALLY wants to buy and he actually asked ME if there were any jobs or chores that I'd be willing to pay him to do. I'm taking the opportunity to get him to do the stuff he needs to do anyway! He is nearly impossible to motivate precisely because his sense of rewards and punishments is totally skewed. Punishment hardly phases him and there's rarely anything he wants badly enough to actually work for. Difficult!)
Have a great day all!
The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
