Welcome Naama, glad you're posting! I'm struggling with the last 10ish also, and mine is also concentrated in my tummy, so I understand how hard it is!

Thank you Mrs. Snark and Andrew for the warm welcome.

Well, the past two days have definitely been a struggle I put the icon for stress because that was what I was feeling - lots and lots of stress... It was a work issue that involved being confrontational which I'm not comfortable with at all. As a result all my good intentions re diet and controlling food went out the window (they didn't even say good bye - just flew off.. not nice )

Anyway, today I'm feeling calmer and more centered. I cooked oatmeal and am having a small serving for breakfast. In a bit I'm going for my squash lesson which I always enjoy. Hopefully this will continue to be healthy day throughout. We'll see...

A glorious Saturday to you all.

Naama

Happy to come over.. but flight tickets are so expensive right now!
In lieu of physical presence, I looked up the ingredients list and Nutter Butter includes hydrogenated oils, HFCS, soy lecithin and artificial flavoring. Doesn't that make you want to get rid of them all by yourself?!

Andrew LOL! That really cracked me up! Fortunately I tested my blood sugar 2 hrs after eating them last night so I think knowing that number will help deter me from them should I be surprised in a dark alley, umm cabinet, in the future.

Naama, sadly, even knowing that doesn't help in the heat of a binge but I think I'm now armed properly for the next time.

Nutter butters are vegan, did you know? I can devastate those babies in no time flat. Keep them far, far from me.

Glad they are gone, now your life can return to its regularly scheduled programming!

Now if we'd have split them, you'd only feel half the guilt...

Struggle: Telecommute days. I really need to set my computer up on the far end of the house from the pantry. I've been trolling the pantry and the fridge all day, to the point where I can't wait to go back to work tomorrow. ARGH!!!

The above stuck with me, and I have been trying zumba via youtube. I'm really, really, REALLY bad at it. And I haven't been videoing it, because, OMG... BUT... I *am* having a great time.

Here are the 2 routines I've been working on. They are really very fun. I'm so, so, SO glad I don't have mirrors in my house to reflect my dancing back to me.

Anyway, I thought I'd share in case anyone else wants to get down on it.

I like zumba but am horrendous at it! I went to a few classes a long time ago and managed to run into almost everyone in there, I was mortified!

Ok, so try to contain the laughter but guess what my favorite low carb, gluten free food blogger released today? A nutter butter recipe! LOL!

It's a bummer, you can't out exercise a bad diet, or so I've heard....that is why I am not going hardcore with exercise til my diet is more solid, first things first!
