Jamie - step away from the breadbox - keep your hands open and above your head (Okay, everyonce check to see if there are any itty bitty bread bites hiding in there). Sounds like something triggereed those cravings and being in a place where all that high carb stuff is plentiful can be very challenging! I hope you were able to resist the temptation!
I had an interesting weekend - but I am still feeling SICK, SICK......coughing and snorting and unable to breathe - worse today than yesterday - even went to the clinic (I hate going there as your never know who you'll get)....told me it was just a cold and go home - but did a throat swab after I mentioned my dd had strep throat! I CANNOT BE SICK!!! Will have to drug myself, I don't even have time to see my own dr - who would have at least given me a prescription to hold onto in case I was not getting better.
Bar Mitzvah on Sat was fabulous.....and pretty lc friendly. After morning service - there was a buffet lunch: salad, strawberries, tuna salad, egg salad, rolls/bagels and cold poached salmon. I stayed away from the breads and cookies and desserts, and stuck to the lc stuff - with some melon and strawberries for dessert.
Dinner time was pretty good - but I did stray a bit - starting with the Crantini at the open bar before dinner and a couple of mini eggrolls being passed around.
Dinner was a buffet with many lc choices: chicken (took the poached breasts and stayed away from the one with the orange sauce), roast beef, smoked meat, salads, and steamed veggies. The potatoes looked scrumptious but I dared not eat them.
There was also a very tantalizing sweet table after dinner - laden with cakes, squares, tortes and fresh strawberries with a chocolate sauce fountain for dipping! I had some strawberries and melon again - but I did break down when the waiters were circulating with Spanish coffees served with those chocolate spoons. Ate most of the whipped cream, licked my spoon and drank some of the coffee....but not the whole thing.
Today was a bit worse - it was the MOVIE POPCORN that got to me. DH and I have been to movies many times since starting lc and have avoided popcorn. Today took youngest and friend to see Brother Bear (very cute by the way).....and got them popcorn...and yes, I ended up nibbling a bit along with a Diet Pepsi (what a treat that was!).
So no longer in ketosis - but hope that by morning everything will return to normal????
Have to make sure to pack snacks for all day workshop tomorrow as I know there will be lots of unfriendly high carb stuff.....will bring my own Atkins muffins w/butter, some cheese strings and a small can of tuna juist in case!
Time to drug myself and try and get some sleep!
Hope everyone had a great weekend and did not indulge as I did!
