Manic Monday

Yesterday, went pretty well considering there is a bunch of high carby breads around. One of my friends gave me a Pizza Gourmet pizza stone. Since my boyfriend loves to cook, well, he decided to try to make bread. And now he has made a pepperoni pizza. Great! What does a low-carber do in a case where her significant other is not only an Italian that cooks, he's an Italian that loves to cook for his love. He's waves off my warnings to keep this food away from my lips, and says: "It's a fad." Mmmmm.....no. Breads, cheeses, drinking like a Kennedy, and making bad choices got me to a maximum weight of 214lbs. I cut out the cheese and bread. Drink a few to get a rosy glow on occasion and I've stopped making impulsively bad choices. Ok, maybe I still make a few impulsive choices on occasion, BUT! My feet are firmly planted on the ground. Yes, they are, I checked.

Yesterdays plan:

Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with 1tsp. of mayo, squirt of horseradish mustard, and spices. 210 calories

No Snack

Lunch: 4 hard boiled eggs for my egg salad with 1/2T of mayo, 4 small squirts of horseradish mustard, and spices 375 calories

Snack? - I bought a 12oz. cup of black coffee mixed with cinnamon and 1 env. of splenda. I drank maybe a 1/4 cup of it. calories??? 20 tops

Dinner: 2 eggs scrambled with my homemade veggie patty, 1/2T of mayo, a couple squirts of mustard and spices. 310 calories

After dinner, my boyfriend gave me a couple of small slices of pizza with no cheese..sauce only. - 600 calories (yeah, dailyplate works great for me!)

1515 calories - Oops! Carbs are higher because of pizza. Yet, it was so goooooood!!!!

Did I mention I went 46 minutes on the elliptical today at full maximum overdrive? Yup, I was a hungry girl but not as bad as I thought I would be.

Have a great day!

134lbs. STILL!!! according to analog scale. Holding steady.

Good day, Lora.

It's excellent that you exercised!

I'm Italian too. So, I can relate to your troubles ... pizza. Mmmm. Pizza.

All told, I think you handled it pretty well. You sampled but compensated for it be exercising and eating solidly LC the rest of the day.

And, you posted truthfully. I admire that.

Have a wonderful day!

How many carbs did you calculate in the pizza you had? I'm just curious ;)
