They say its all 7's today, and it is supposed to be a phenonemal lucky day!!

Anyway....,mini emergencies behind....spent the last two days in emergency room/Dr. office with sick brother. Surgery Monday AM, and hopefully that will take care of that....back to basic routine health management!!

Fun: Make new recipe....grilled salmon...recipe from newly arrived Light & Tasty magazine....hope it is good...it makes several servings....some to freeze!! It also had a turkey burger recipe that I will try in future.

Fitness: I didn't get to the machine yesterday....but I did it this morning....it wasn't a lot (1/2 hour) but it got me jump started again. Saw the Dr. yesterday for myself......darn...swimmers ear is back.....hate the thought of wearing ear plugs when I take the grandkids swimming!!

Food: Cereal & yogurt
fruit & yogurt
SlimFast
grilled salmon & sugar snap peas.

(Lynn....by the end of the day I usually have around 950 - 1100 calories....so it isn't off the deep end too bad....I really like the amount & flexability of this particuliar eating plan.... but I am concerned about when/how and at what point I will want to stop the weight loss... I don't want to go down too far, but am not sure where too far is.... or how long it will take me to re-adjust my eating to accomodate the final weight goal.)

One dieting tip that I find so very useful is to be prepared with a backup plan. Yesterday I found myself running back & forth to town three times for various prescriptions, appointments, etc (around trip of 50 miles each trip). I take a cooler with me that has in it the foods that I will eat for the day....lots of water, soda, and nutrition bars or drinks. That way I am not caught in the middle of a hunger attack with nothing to do but run to the fast food place. Can't believe what a difference it makes just having adequate water available...and what better place than in the car....and it's so handy, and cold! 60 ounces of water a day makes such a difference. I make sure I have at least 40 ounces water, 16 ounces green tea, and then allow for about 2 cans of soda a day...hopefully only one with caffeine in it. But darn....I just like the sodas that also happen to have caffeine in them!
My motto.....the cooler (ice chest), don't leave home without it!!

Hi Margaret, if the salmon recipe turns out good, will you share it? I LOVE salmon & the sauces I used to use have too much sugar in them. I need a new recipe.

Good idea with the cooler. I'm going to see my niece on Monday - she lives almost 3 hours away. I told her I'd bring my own food & have been trying to figure out what to prepare. I will pack in my cooler - gives me more options.

Take care,

Lynn

I need to do this. I really really need to do this.

I won't list today's food because I skipped lunch, but for fun I went shopping to look for some smaller clothes. I looked like a "rapper" yesterday with my capris sliding down off my hips. Also went to Kohls but they didn't have my size in the cute sandals I found.
Tomorrow it's off to work so no fun there.

exercise - walk 30 min.

b-egg and slice whole wheat toast
s-cheese stick
l-garden salad with dressing
s-almonds
d-broiled chicken with green beans and slivered almonds, dish of blueberries with Cool Whip.

Hi Phyllis,

I'm not really sure. I usually check my blood sugar after dinner & if it's under 120, I have a lo-carb yogurt and some sf peanutbutter (5 carbs total). I'm having trouble getting my bs low enough - about the only carbs I can eat are things that are lo-carb and veggies. If I do any potatoes/pasta/rice/regular bread, my bs goes WAY up. My avg. bs now is around 125. Most likely, when I go to the endocrinologist, he will up my meds.

Since I'm eating this lo-carb way, I'm hardly EVER hungry - what a change for me! I try to keep my calories up around 1,000/day when I'm home. When I'm out, it's more difficult for me to do that. Eating fish/chicken & veggies doesn't add up to many calories.

Thanks for worrying about me, but I think I'm OK.

Lynn
