I took a bag of lettuce and munched it like potato chips when I got really hungry -- kind of weird but what the heck! Also had some zucchini slices and a mango drink for lunch, then had my evening IP (vanilla drink) for a late afternoon snack since I knew I'd be starving. Came home and had my usual dinner.

I sure hope today is better in other ways -- I stayed up late Friday night to get all my stuff ready and my car loaded, got up early yesterday so I could have a full two hours to set up my display . . . went out to the garage and my car wouldn't start. Had to call AAA and wait for them . . . it was the battery and thankfully the guy had one with him so he swapped it out for me and I got to the show an hour before opening instead of two hours, but I got there so that was good! Then after all that the crowds were very, very thin and my total sales for 8 hours yesterday were . . . $10. I spent $93 on the battery before I left the house, plus the table space was $85 . . . I sure hope things pick up today! Lots of people stopped and told me how incredible my work was, but no one bought anything. But the sellers around me and I still had a fun time of it, and I won a couple raffles so that was cool! But I really want to (a) make some money, and (b) get rid of some of my stuff!!

Well, if I don't get going I'll be late again today so I better move along.

Have a great day everyone, and let's all continue to be big losers!

Hmmm...have you thought to put some of your stuff on ETSY...and a link...so we can see it! Christmas is coming!! I have 4 granddaughters...2 daughters and 4 sisters to shop for!

Great NSVs for both of you! Rockabilly, the only thing that would have made me feel better about the car trouble PRE-IP would have been a candy bar.....or 2 or 3!! Way to go with dealing with stress Rockabilly, and temptation ecdcslim, and staying OP! :carrot::carrot:

PS - I just added a link to the original Auguster thread in the first post of this Part II thread. Thanks, Lisa for the instructions!

Hey KareVT,

Try this link for your weight tracker ... (I hope the link works for you!)

Gosh I just love the IP Diet ... it's so predictable and (can I say it) boring! I have seen a bit of a slowdown in weight loss this month (which I was expecting due to my rapidly dropping BMR). I was losing about 0.75 pounds per day on average in August; and now I am losing 0.60 pounds per day on average in September. I will take that!

Have a relaxing Sunday Slownsteady & Everyone!

Kale chips are great! Very tasty, easy to make, and filling.

Last night I tried the Mock Zucchini "Apples" - yum! Very strange, but it did taste like apples. That's one I'll definitely be making again.

Hello Team August! Hope ya'll are having an OP sunday! Went for Sushi Sunday with my coworker. (It's a ritual) He's been so kind to forgo it lately I wanted to give it a try. Our Sushi place across from the casino is great and one of our bar tenders does side work over there so I figured he could help me out.

They were great, I explained no gluten , dairy or sugar and they hooked me up with a WONDERFUL roll. It's called the Spring Love. It was seared tuna, crab stick, cucumber, asparagus and spinach wrapped in a soy wrapper. OMG ya'll! I also had a Spicy Tuna roll in a spinach flavor soy wrapper that was good. The guys were so cute , they asked about my diet and complimented me several times :o Needless to say they got a nice tip. LOL

It's been a complete opposite day here at work, very slow! It's football season so that's pretty normal for home games. Our Saints are now 3-0 so we're very excited.
Well I'm rambling so see ya'll later!

I don't want to break any rules, but since you asked, I do have a shop on etsy called Galaxyofglitter. I think the link will go away in the post, but it's www.galaxyofglitter.etsy.com

Today's bead bazaar was slightly better than yesterday so I ended up only $10 short of making my booth rent . . . of course, I spent more then I sold, but oh well!

No problems sticking to IP today. And I could definitely tell the pants I wore are getting too loose! Yay!!

Avalon - thank you so much for leading me to the tracker. I went so far as to create one but then it wouldn't allow me to post. It said I should copy and paste the link but site wouldn't accept. Grrr..

I wanted to add that your stats fascinate me - you're so savvy!

Lighthouse101 - made the kale chips and they are really good. I have to play with it a little more b/c I don't think I had the oven rack up high enough to the top of the oven so it took longer, more like 15 min. But, they were good. Almost felt like I was cheating!

No idea what the mock zucchini "apples" are but I'm going to have to look that one up in the directory, that's for sure. Thanks for the tip.

Vegetables can be totally disguised and tasty!:broc:
