How well did I do this weekend?

I have the flu! Ugh!

My boyfriend told me he's up to here with my low-carb diet. He's holding fast to his homemade bread, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, and herb-seasoned stuffing to go along with the turkey. All these sugar and flour products are all over my kitchen.

Yes, the challenge continues:

Here is what Saturday looked like - I worked all day, too!

5:45am - Breakfast - 300 calories
2 eggs scrambled with veggie patty
A bit of mayo, mustard, and spices (I like 'em hot!)

8:30am - Tall Cafe' Latte at Starbucks with Soy Milk - 140 Calories
(I do not consume dairy.)

12:20pm: Garden Salad with Tuna, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
650 Calories

7pm - 2 Eggs with Turkey Burger omelet - 1 T of Mayo, mustard, spices.
425 Calories

1,415 Calories

Scale - 134 Pounds - Via Analog (Yuck!)

Sunday - Forget about it! LOL Too sick to count calories nor get on a scale.

Back to business today!

Howdy, Lora.

Your Saturday menu looked pretty solid. :)

I've also had issues with binge eating. That part of my eating psychology has improved over the past several years. But, I still have had issues with plain old overeating.

At the moment, my wife is not on a low carb program. She'll often ask me to bring her a bag of chips or a piece of chocolate. But, I really don't think it bothers me. The way I look at it is like it's a challenge. I'm literally holding the enemy (chips and chocolate) and I'm not giving in!

I'm also surrounded by carbs at work and will be on Thanksgiving too. But, I'm trying to view these as opportunities to prove my new found resolve.

I commend you for staying strong in your battle too. And, I'll encourage you not to beat up on yourself if you occasionally slip up. Think of the long term effort, not the short term missteps.

I hope you feel better soon!

Quick question: I may just be blind but ... is there a section, on your blog, that allows your readers to be "followers"? I've seen that on the other menu blogs but couldn't find it on yours.

Do I need to schedule a trip to the opthamologist?

Looks like an alright day on Saturday, I hope Sunday didn't go tooooo badly.

Do you count carbs at all?

Low to moderate carbs in my menu.

I try to work out at least 5 to 6 days a week. I need all the energy I can get. Sometimes merely protein alone will not cut it when bench pressing a 50lb. barbell. :)
