So much to read and learn.
Saturday, January 18, 2014
Today my mom and I started our journey of low-carb. She's done it in the past and has had great results. So I thought I would try it with her. We went to the grocery store today... spent 2.5 hours in the store.
I was learning to look at the labels and see how many carbs are in servings and how much of that is fiber and how much is sugar.
I have to say, I'm a little upset that I can't have fruit on induction. But I hope I won't crave them too much. I'm hoping to be able to stick with this to lose the weight I need to lose and then be able to make lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy weight.
When we got home we were both starving so we took a leaf of roman lettuce and put 3 pieces of oven roasted turkey breast on it with a very little bit of softened cream cheese. I also added 3 cherry tomatoes to mine. We then rolled it up and ate it. Used pork rhines as our "chips". It was good.
I got some eggs to take to work with me next week and I was going to get some pre-cooked bacon to keep as well. But then my mom said what she will do is cook a bunch of regular bacon and drain it and then put it in a zip lock bag to use later in the week. So I think that's what I'm gonna do.
I also found some recipes that are low-carb so we're gonna try them. Next Friday I have a Scrapbook meeting and we always do "themes". This month is breakfast theme. Of course I'm freaking out because all the breakfast stuff is high in carbs. So I found a recipe for a crustless quiche that I'm gonna try and make to take. If there is nothing else there that I can eat, I can at least eat that.
So here I go. On this low-carb journey.
On another note... I did 3 of the SP videos yesterday and my legs and butt HURT!!!
Those videos may not be long and you don't always think you're gonna be sore the next day while you're doing them... but they are working for me. I just have to suck it up and push through.
