Morning all! Please talk very softly
, as I have a bad sugar hangover!
We went out to dinner last night as it took until 7:30 to get errands taken care of, and I had misplanned...chicken salad with almonds for lunch and dijon chicken (with almonds) for dinner...too many nuts! I could have saved dinner, but by the time it would be done, it would be pretty late. DH opted for Charlie's cafe, which has good options, but I had not been there for dinner. I decided to have chicken (for price reasons), and was choosing between the basil cream and the piccata. I figured the basil cream had more fat, so decided to go with the piccata in spite of the white wine, which I was hoping would be more on the dry side. Unfortunately, I didn't consider the words, "with preserved lemon". Who preserves lemons??? It arrived and was covered in sticky-sweet lemon slices...they must have been preserved in a sugar syrup. Ack!
I was part way into dinner, pushing the lemons aside and eating as little sauce as possible, when I started feeling awful. Terrible headache, achy legs, just yucky. I finished my dinner and knew that it was going to be a heck of a night.
I still feel pretty bad today and am craving like there is no tomorrow, but thankfully ignorning the cravings, which is a good thing. This just really reminds me of how much I hate what sugar does to my body, so I'm just going to focus on it as a positive reminder and not on the raise to 287 this morning.
Mamacita, I can't wait to read the recipe! I'm with you on breakfast. It really is the most important meal of the day.
to Roadrunner Ruthie for staying OP for almost a whole week!!!
I think that's marvelous! They better send the cabana boy to dust off your ONEderland beach lounge, put on a fresh towel and a frothy crystal light on the table with a lovely book (something frisky!). You're on your way! Too funny about the bones...Ellis has the right idea.
And speaking of Ellis...
No fair urging ADD on! She's doing just fine on her own...and definitely getting way too close for comfort, as I'm still plateau-ing...
You are way too funny, girl. I love the story about the pig! I have a friend whose bunny loves to drink beer. They keep it from her, but she always manages to tip a bottle over and sip some before they stop her. Oy!
I hope you have a lovely dinner with your skinny friend. My BF for many years was a girl who was a size 0 and had a size 36 C chest. If you are that small, you are not allowed to also have boobs! *stamping foot*. What I found about being friends with her is that even though she had everything I wanted, she was still pretty unhappy with herself. To be honest, she had to work extremely hard to maintain that weight, and I didn't want to have to do that. We all have our issues...but I know that doesn't help much when they are sitting there eating everything you know you shouldn't!
I hope you have a wonderful lunch in spite of all that and that you enjoy being disguised as an eggplant.
I love Jodi's suggestion of a green hat. Perfect!
Jody, congrats on your great attitude about things (I go into panic mode when I'm hungry and nothing OP is available!) and on your children's accomplisments! What a busy and fun afternoon! How did ds break his bone?
LC, might it possible be from being OP? My secretary asked yesterday about how I felt on my TOM during SBD, and I realized that my cramps are less, my IBS is much less, and I overall feel better. Does anyone else find that to be true? I hope it's true for you and that you find your TOM being much easier on SBD!
Wouldn't that be great???
: Congratulations on being OP yesterday in spite of the cake! I think that is just awesome!
I haven't been tempted by anything that attractive since I started...I think you have HUGE willpower!
Kiko, hope DD is feeling better!
Honestly, the deep fried candy bars sound really, really gross to me. I like deep fried things like funnel cake, but deep frying a candy bar? Blech! Now, a melty candy bar would be yummy, but no extra grease and covering. What do
they cover it in?
Not too much else going on here. Had a night off yesterday, reading travel books and looking for things to do in Europe. A big stray dog (had a collar, but no tags) came barreling into our yard as DH and the dog were waiting for me to finish watering plants and go for a walk. The dog was really interested in Lady, our little dog, and scared the
out of her! I had to chase it out of the yard twice, during which time it lifted its leg on several spots in our yard. Urgh!
Looking forward to next week's vacation to Maine. I'm taking Thursday off, as I have only one vacation day left and need to spend it or lose it by July. Then we will have Friday through Monday in Maine and VT. Fun!
What are the other U.S. folks doing for the 4th?
Tonight we are having Frisee salad with walnuts and bleu cheese. I think I'm going to throw some chicken on their for protein.
that the cravings go away by this afternoon!
