I'm up way too late, so I figured why not blog? :)
Tuesday, I was low carb all day. I already blogged about that.
On Wednesday, I had 2 fried eggs on top of spaghetti squash "hashbrowns" with turkey links and coffee. I didn't have a real lunch, but I did grab 0% plain Greek yogurt with some natural pb, chia seeds, and a dash of THM Sweet Blend. Supper was small because we would be going out to eat after church that night with our visiting preachers. I had one low carb tortilla with salsa chicken, shredded cheese, and sour cream. Salsa chicken is simply chicken in the crockpot with a taco seasoning pack and salsa on top. Cook it all day and then shred the chicken with a fork and serve as tacos or taco salad. Went to Denny's after church, and I have to admit the food looked yummy. To stick with low carb, though, I ordered a steak with sauteed zucchini and squash and got steamed broccoli instead of rice.
Thursday was a super busy day! It was our first day of homeschool co-op for the year. I'm teaching the preK thru K class. I had to prepare for that class, plus I had to help each of my kids pack their backpacks with things necessary for their classes. Even though my 2 skillets were dirty and I was in a big hurry, I was determined to have a low carb breakfast! I soft boiled 2 eggs, added 1/2 TBSP butter and 2 turkey sausage links and mashed and stirred. Voila! Drank coffee with cream.
Just as I was about to walk out the door to mail out an ebay sale, my neighbor lady walked up onto the porch. She needed a phonebook, which I have no clue where that is because hubby was the last to use it and didn't put it back. I invited her in so I could search the internet for the phone number. Mortified. My house was NOT visitor friendly since we have been running like mad for 2 weeks solid! She told me she had locked herself out of her house and her car and needed to cancel her dr's appointment. Plus, she was sick and it was 95 and humid today. She called her doctor's office, and then I asked her if I could try to break in her house for her. LOL Every pastor's wife knows how to break into houses, right? Ha! She said that I could try. I was able to get it open with my library card after just a minute of trying. She gave me a big hug and I was on my way.
So we were just a couple minutes late for homeschool co-op. I'm not the teacher until after lunch, thankfully. We had over 70 kids there this year, not counting parents! Craziness!!! Last year we only had like 30 kids. Lots of parents had pulled their kids from public school and just started homeschooling, so today was kind of crowded and crazy but fun!
I only packed us snacks for lunch, because we were taking the preachers out for lunch as soon as co-op was over. I had a cheese stick and a beef stick with water.
Shoney's was chosen for lunch. I ate grilled salmon with the veggie medley and a salad. It was really good salmon. Glad I got that instead of beef again.
I ate 2 Dove Dark Chocolate pieces this afternoon, just to be honest! That was 9 carbs according to the package serving and division. ;) I drank some almond coconut milk with it and also had just maybe 1/2 TBSP of natural pb.
Tonight I got all thrown off because we planned to take the preachers to Denny's again, but both of them preferred to just go on to their rooms and rest tonight. We were very hungry and hadn't eaten, so we weren't sure what to do. Hubby said Wendy's, and as soon as I heard that I knew I was getting the #1 combo. :::sigh::: Old demons die hard! I also had a small choc frosty.
But I went nearly 3 full days of low carb before having a slip-up this time. I'm making little improvements, right?! To my surprise, eating low carb hasn't been nearly as hard as I thought it would be. At first, I kept telling myself I didn't want to do it because I couldn't eat fruits. Then I pointed out to myself that I never eat fruit when I'm eating all junky and terrible, so what's the difference? So in lieu of fruits, I try to aim for veggies at every opportunity.
So there's the update I knew you were all dying for, unable to sleep waiting for, and are so glad to have gotten. Haha Despite ending the day on a bad note, I am overall proud of myself and the self control I have been exhibiting for more than 2-hour increments. Seriously. Lol Goodnight!
