I dug up this thread to say that I found some new yummies to eat. ....shell-less tacos or tacos with low carb tortillas. Just have to watch how much seasoning to put on, as there's carbs in it. I add just enough for taste. I also use green tomato taco sauce (there's a certain name for it, just can't think of it), of course cheese and a little bit of sour cream. It's a nice change.
As for salad dressing, I discovered at my local giant eagle's herbal/organic section Ginger sesame vinagrette dressing. It's low carb too. Very good, will definitely wake up your taste buds, so use sparingly.
I can't do eggs anymore...ate too many last time I was on atkins. Now, for breakfast I'll eat some fresh mozzarella with a little bit of basil, and of course olive oil.
My appetite is almost none existant so I don't have to eat as much anymore to feel full.
I haven't been able to go to the gym for a couple weeks....life happens....kids getting hurt or sick, or something goes wrong with mamma here. But, as soon as I'm feeling better, my butt's going back. I was really getting into it too, even bought my 1st mp3 player just for it, but then like I said....
Water has become my best friend. Can't seem to get enough. However when I first get to work, I'll drink about 2 cups black coffee to keep me going as I work evenings. Then for the rest of the night, I drink what I call "pee water". Water with just a splash of unsweetened freshly brewed iced tea...just enough for flavor.
well, I just wanted to check in as it's been awhile. Hope everyone's doing good!
