Yep... that is my order from good ol' Netrition!!! I really do love that store. I have placed multiple orders from them and get this.... The last time I ordered from them..... I chose a black free t-shirt in the size of XXL. This one is a size XL!!!!

I have to say, I'm the Queen of Cheap and really, I love to buy most EVERYTHING on sale and locally, if I can... but anyway, I was out of almost ALL of my DaVinci syrup and I haven't had protein powder in the house in months... (WTF have I been thinking???) You probably notice from most of my menus that I try to keep my spending to a minimum... but no longer at the expense of my health! Just know that I do realize that throwing down $175 will leave dent in my bank account but is probably the best money I've spent all year long!

I don't usually have the Atkins bars around my house, but I used to buy them a long time ago.... and I decided what the heck.... I did what Linda Sue suggested and would cut it up into about 16 little slices and just have a few slices of those if the urge hits for a little something sweet... especially when in losing-weight mode.

Also, I'm going to try a new kind of Glucosamine with Chondroitin for my KOA.... The one I have now is Glucosamine Hydrochloride, not Glucosamine Sulfate... which apparently is a big difference.

I almost got on the scale this morning, but I forgot to before I ate... Shoot!

Hope everybody is having a wonderful weekend. Doggy is sad that we aren't going for a walk today because of the rain... I'm making some more oopsie rolls and I think hamburger gravy for dinner.... served over good ol' mashed cauliflower. I love that stuff and I'm actually convinced that you could probably serve this to an unsuspecting family and they would hardly realize the difference... if at all.

What's for supper at your house??

Back to my love affair with Atkins

Been in the horrible cycle of fast food, junk food and basically self-destruction. It seems the choices have been happening in the grocery store. Shit food = shit results. I don't care how cheap or yummy the shit is, it's still shit. I would apologize for swearing, but I really need to be apologizing to my poor body. Yeah, so not cool. I have squeezed in several low carb meals, but that is not good enough. Low carb is a lifestyle... not a hobby. It's not just something to do on the weekends.

From now on, I'm going to keep my off plan meals for holidays and that is it. One meal per holiday and that is that.

My dog has kept the walking to a regular and has been pulling me along with her. We walk about 1-2 miles, more days than not. The other day, my neighbor (who I didn't realize was a neighbor) pulled up and said, "You have a beautiful dog... I just love her.... but who is walking who?"

"Oh," I laughed, "she is definitely walking me."

To get on with it, my one year low carb anni is 40 days from now, and I'm back to taking shit seriously. No more excuses.

I'm baking some oopsie rolls today along with a big ol' batch of tuna salad. Tuna was on sale yesterday for 60 cents a can, which is pretty darn cheap... Seems like it's been creeping up to the dollar mark lately.

I'm afraid to even step on the scale at this point, so no update from me there.... but I do know that eating real foods is the only way to go... and I'm going to place an order today for some DaVinci syrups and some whey protein powder. Because I'm worth it.

I worked out!

Well, I worked out 14 days in March, so says my sticker-a-day-for-when-I-work-out calendar! How cool is that? And noooo that is NOT an April Fool's Day joke!!! Over 90% of that happened in the FIRST half of the month remains the problem.

I will definitely totally dominate that record in April, 2010!! With the weather finally cooperating, I just got back from taking my dog on a 2 mile long hike, half road, half forest near a lake and a few ponds.... She was totally worn out when we got home!

Usually, I let her run around for about 5-10 minutes in the back yard, but this time, she just came inside with me and wanted to drink some water! She did find some to drink in the woods, but we were both completely pooped.
