Long day for me, I put in 10 hours and didn't take my usual walk break. Got home and DH asked me if I brought my laptop home, since I work from home on Tuesdays. Well, no. I completely forgot. So I went back for it and stopped for groceries on the way home since I didn't get that done over the weekend.

As with all foods, your personal mileage may vary, but I find jicama fits quite well in my LC way of eating. Raw and peeled, the assorted trackers (and the label on the "tacos" that are just convenience-packaged slices) say it comes out to 11 total carbs per cup including 6 of fiber; not so ideal a profile as using a blanched cabbage leaf, but often tastier.

Also, jicama contains inulin--which is supposed to be good for me--and it grows truly lovely vines, like shamrocks that have decided to climb.

A good day for me. I walked a full hour today, all at once!! It was a push, but I surprised myself!

Then we (monster dog and I) later went to the park for a 2nd walk...but only for 20 min that time.

Feeling a bit lost as to what I "should" be doing for now, but staying on plan, and continuing walks, will have to do for now.

I do sort through some things, and I am sending another carton to my son, to store for me, but in truth, it's still a bit too early to do more.

Have a good week, Everyone!

Already a fan of BBC, but will check on the podcast sounds pretty interesting.

btw jicama is huge in carbs. I love it in salads, but too rich for my carb budget.

Baking season is upon us! I'm starting with LC versions of cheesecake, pumpkin pie, flourless chocolate cake, and, possibly, an historical (circa 1650) recipe for seed cake. That should get me through the week. (kidding, more or less)

There's a local restaurant that makes duck confit tacos on jicama shells, the idea of which has fascinated me since I heard about it. Jicama "tacos" are readily available at my local grocery, and have pretty much everything else I'd need on hand already--so I might join 'Sunflower and have Taco Thursday.

Any podcast fans on here? I've been mostly enjoying a BBC podcast "50 Things That Made the Modern Economy." Really interesting takes, well researched and well presented, about ten minutes per episode. There's one on TV dinners I think a lot of folks ought to hear!

(I expect Spark will mangle the URL, but might as well give it a try.)

Dang, did it get cold fast, got my little portable heater set up next to my computer, until my guy comes over to winterize my cooler and get the heater going.

Going to friends for Thanksgiving dinner, although it will be a short visit. I don't drive after dark (cataracts doing a bang up job on my sight) I won't be able to participate in the board games after dinner. I am taking mashed cauliflower and maybe the keto pumpkin pie, it's low carb and gluten free, their oldest son is glucose intolerant. I'm not that fond of pumpkin, but will possibly manage a small slice. And I'm not sure how I'm going to handle Turkey, as to whether I will partake or not, two things, don't like seeing a carcass, and my aberration to chicken *TY metformin!". so very limited on choices. Hopefully there will be a vegetable or salad.





Two cartoons today so many cute ones!

I'm at home today, but seriously debating whether I'll pop in to the office for a couple of hours just so tomorrow won't be a total disaster. I think I'll run it by my Manager. I mean, it's not like I'm getting anything accomplished at home.

I had originally scheduled today off because I had to get up early yesterday and wanted to be able to sleep in today. Well, I did, and now I'm feeling like I'm wasting a valuable vacation day!

Maw, I have to grit my teeth with my niece at some family get-togethers. I love her dearly, but she tends to wander off and lie down, or check her emails, or run out to do something else, while the other women (me, my sister, my mom) are working our butts off prepping food and the like. I think partly she was just unaware that she was doing it. She's an only child and sometimes that really colors the way she approaches things.

Believe me, my kids are no saints in that department either, but they're used to being more cooperative because they've HAD to be.

Speaking of which, Big Sis cooks for Thanksgiving, so we basically just show up and eat. Then I return the favor on Christmas Eve.

I get to cook for as many as show up. Will be a traditional dinner. I also add rice pudding for those that like it and a green jello molded salad. I will be prepping a bit earlier as I watch Landon on Tuesday/Wednesday. Not sure how I'm gonna get it all done with the babysitting, but that's okay. Will just be a really long 3 days

Instead of cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year, we are taking our family out to the Thanksgiving buffet. No dishes! No cleanup! But they can all come back to my home and have (store-bought) pie (I won't have any...I have a LC dessert planned).

My biggest challenge will be picking the correct LC delights....turkey for sure!

My name is Jeanne (pronounced Jean ee); I live in eastern Washington State.

Supper last night went reasonably well, except that my SIL didn't get there until about 6:15. I had made a point of telling them that supper was at 6:00 and to get there earlier. Grrr. Very rude. And hard on the cook, too. Her phone rang just as we finished supper, and she spent the next hour+ talking - practically yelling - on the phone. I felt like I was being clobbered with noise. The she went over to the couch and buried herself in her computer. I was most definitely NOT impressed with her. DB went immediately to the couch and buried himself in his computer, with nary a word until they left. At least they did deign to talk during supper. Almost constantly, in SIL's case. Oh, well. They don't come down very often.

Didn't sleep last night. Even got up about 6:30 and took some aspirin and still didn't sleep. Still have a headache, which is unusual. Aspirin, etc. usually kills a headache for me. I emailed my Japanese teacher (in Japanese!) that I don't feel healthy today, that I will not go to class, and may I please take the quiz next week. How about that! It took me more than half an hour to get it down, but I did it.

Bill said he or they may come over here today. If not, I'll see them Tuesday for supper. Hopefully a quieter evening.

On which downer note I'd better quit.
