It has been a long time since blogging:

Monday, November 12, 2018

November 1st 2018, I started my new diet, but am not going crazy following.
Lower carbs, no flour, sugar, potatoes, or rice.
It has been 11 days since I have had a drink of alcohol although I have used mouth wash every day but don't swallow it.
my scale had gone up to 187 so that was scary....my weight this morning was 179.3. I don't ever want to be 180 pounds again. So drinking alcohol contributed to me gaining 50 pounds in 3 years.
I shall refrain myself from drinking until christmas vacation to see how much weight I can lose. Then go from there.

This weekend was fun!
I actually was able to sit at the bar in whole foods and not play trivia and eat hamburgers and a large salad, by myself and NOT drink any beer, just plain water. I was not tempted in the least....success!
Saturday:we had lunch at chris' po boys. Chicken and sausage gumbo and a bowl of cabbage with remulade dressing. Delicious!
For dinner had chimichurri chicken stirfry with cabbage and onions.
Very tasty!
Sunday was veterans day, I wrote this earlier and added stuff sorry too late to edit but you will get the idea:

Thought I would elaborate my day:
Just got back from texas road house with some friends of ours who are both veterans and we were treated to a lunch. I had pulled pork that tasted just like their ribs and was a huge portion that I took home more than half the order. It had a sweet BBQ sauce so I knew it was not on my diet but then took home the mixed veggies and ate a cup of chili which was very good. Then hubby and I and another friend are going to see the movie about the band queen. It sounds so good. We will meet back up with our friends to go to dinner at the bj's brew house for dinner on them as veterans.
Went to khols and bought a shirt half off with coupons, it is a pretty peacock blue
doing laundry....it has warmed up to 60 so it is nice outside.
The movie was great!!!! really well done about the band named Queen. I kept having hot flashes taking off my sweater then getting cold and putting it back on.sigh
menopause go away.
We went to dinner with same friends that we did lunch with for dinner at a brew house and it was good. I had an ahi tuna cooked med/rare and a large salad with a light vinaigrette which was delicious.
I did a bit of filing for work this evening am going to head to bed early as I have to get up at 730am to start my day tomorrow. I have 5 clients to see.
Another AF day #11 and weighed 179.3,
good day.

    good to see the low-carbs.
    have to watch the sauces tho,
    these can be chock-a-block full of sugar.
    it would be a pity if you saved on some things to be brought undone by something else.
    basically carbs cause an insulin spike which inhibits fat burning
    that is also why there is no snacking with intermittent fasting, just an 8 hour eating window with 3 meals, no snacks

    the intermittent fasting
    8 + 16
    helps take the focus of food and drink

    Way to go .. I hear you loud and clear .. life gets in the way sometimes of self care .. a routine or life style can become excessive and unhealthy .. as we move through the days
    .. finding yourselves and being confident and happy in our own skin is huge .. be well yea Bizi .. the very best I felt was alcohol free .. time for a redo ... take good care
