Atkins - Hooted my way through Labor Day :)

09-07-2010, 12:19 AM
Well, another cookout has come and gone :) I added just a few more carbs and it felt like a luxury! I ate a little bit of grilled chicken, part of a hamburger patty, tomato slice, half a cucumber, a couple of deviled egg halves and afforded myself the luxury of a small wedge of really sweet watermelon and a small slice of sweet pineapple :T:
I ate my regular breakfast of 3 scrambled eggs and 3 sausages before going, so there was nothing there I couldn't resist :D
PLUS...I walked my normal 2 miles afterward!........feeeling pretty darned good about myself.... :woohoo: except for this stupid hormonal migraine

Good job! You treated yourself to Bethenny Frankel's "Taste everything; eat nothing" in allowing yourself a little of what you truly enjoyed. I know we Atkins girls can't be doing that very often and that our girl Bethenny NEVER faced the metabolic issues we deal with every day, but if you're going to go off plan for a special occasion, that's an excellent attitude and way to do it.

Congratulations in handling a social situation very well!
