Yum. I'd kill.

Oh well. Day 17 here at Eggtown, :P

Mushroom omelette for breakfast, I'm very behind on lunch, I've been so busy. I'm thinking......hmmm, eggs? Lol. Eggs and pumpkin. Quick. That's what I need.

Got so much done again today. This may well be my Tiger Blood LDT!

Well, I had my eggs and pumpkin mashed with Rosemary and a dose of coconut oil. With two crushed macadamia nuts on top of the pumpkin.

Pork burger for dinner in a lettuce cup bun. 6 Raspberries.

Yes, McDonalds makes me feel gross.

Although I must admit, if I smell the chips, I'm gone.

It's always a meal filled with regret afterwards! I rarely, if ever, eat it. Maybe once a year, if that.

Good morning happy heaters ( I actually just typed 'God' morning, but that works too)

Last night we grilled steaks and asparagus for dinner on the boat...side salad as well. H bought gelato for dessert ( wicked man ).... I think food just tastes better when cooked and eaten outside, don't you?

Our boat neighbors invited us over for a drink .... They had set up drinks and a little table on the pier..... And there it sat..... The holy grail of what I use to drink...CHAMPAGNE (sigh) . We declined their offer and they went on to drink for several more hours. I felt great the next morning...pretty sure they didn't . ( ok that sounded a 'wee' bit smug...... Sorry for not being sorry

We spent a beautiful day on the river yesterday, but will be leaving to go back home in a couple hours. That means we will be in a car for 3 hours with dog that has extreme panic attacks in the car... Should be fun

LDT sounds like a really lovely weekend - and I agree that food is better cooked outdoors and eating in the sunshine.

Croissant - Eggs go with everything. Your commitment to the Whole30 is fabulous. Keep it going!

Ghostly - I bet you're glad your weekend cooking is out of the way.

Kahlia - Dust yourself off and get back on the healthy eating train!

Today is Day 7 of my diet. Or 8, I don't know, I tend to lose count of days. In any case, I had a cheat meal Friday, then decided what the heck, and had a cheat meal again last night. I kept it tightly more reined in - only 1 piece of pizza instead of my usual 5 pieces. Only a hot fudge sundae instead of my usual ice cream then chips then jar of frosting. I'm happy that I didn't eat everything in sight, and tracked my calories instead.

I lost 3 pounds last week. I have a long way to go. In the past, I only lost or maintained weight through dysfunctional, punishing regimens. The one day at a time approach to sobriety, the keeping my acceptance aligned with realistic expectations, is the approach I'm trying to use with my diet, nutrition and fitness. Unraveling years of dysfunctional patterns is hard work, but worth the effort.

I hope you all have a great day/night!!

Thanks Gleefan. That's very sweet and just what I needed to see today!

Well, the oogly voice is in my head, I really wanted to snack tonight. But you know what I love about getting sober - how you learn to explore your thoughts and not just take them on face value.

So, I knew I wasn't hungry, this was an echo of a bad habit that I replaced drinking with, that was all. It didn't have any power over me. I'm all good.

I think the other thing is...bit like you Gleefan. When I've dieted before, I'd always have a treat once a week. None for me for another 12 days. Just telling myself to get over it. The treat will come.

(Stupid thing is, if I really had a chocolate bar here, I honestly wouldn't want it, physically I don't feel like eating it.)

Lucy had her first outing in the canoe yesterday!! She loved it. She met a huge, old black lab named Cody and was so curious. Until the huge black lab swam over to her canoe... lol. Lucy growled like a ferocious beast. I'm pretty sure she was terrified

We are packing our little grill and picnic basket and might go again today... I'm taking our plastic wine glasses this time, and some seltzer water or sparkling grape juice. We were out at dark last night, super romantic... white lights up and down the river, music from one of the restaurant/bars playing... there's a little beach by the riverwalk where we let Lucy out to go pee. We saw a huge heron flying across the river just in front of us. There were people out all along the riverwalk, and must have been a wedding reception at the restaurant... they were all outside on the lawn, taking pics, and having dinner. It was a nice night

LDT... your boating and bird watching and coffee drinking watching the sunrise sounds enviable Well done on getting around that champagne situation. Being on the water and around wine would not be a combo for me, I am pretty sure. My husband is looking at small boats, fishing boats that are still light weight, easy to maneuver, inexpensive. We are also looking at a nice fishing kayak. Not sure which we'll get, the kayak or a fishing boat with small motor... maybe even a kayak with a small motor. Still shopping around.

Croissant... well done on your whole30, you are nearing the end right? The food pics still look great

Gleefan... congrats on the weight loss.

Snoozy... what diet will you be on tomorrow?

Kahlia... don't fret too much over the fast food. What's done is done. So what workouts are you into at the gym?

We stopped at Krispy Kreme on the way home last. I got a carrot cake donut... and I was not impressed. Wow. I couldn't even finish the thing. It was that disappointing to me. Anyway, I came home and ate a banana and I preferred it. Hard to believe, but I guess that's what eating Paleo does for you. Give me a handful of nuts and some fresh berries or fruit and I'm good to go.

I have a roast, onion and potatoes in the oven. Easy, tasty meal.

SJ..... It's taken me a long time to be around boats and booze . The 2 seem to go hand in hand and has always been a big trigger for me . I still can't invite certain people on board because of it . .... I can't wait to hear all about your future boat purchase . We are seriously considering buying a kayak as well . I'm glad Lucy liked the canoe ride . Roast sounds great !

Ok, we're off to a seriously late start... but here we go. We're going to a spot my husband was able to catch fish at previously so maybe he won't come home empty handed this time. No grilling on the portable grill yet, just taking eggs and bananas. We'll have to plan better for that next time. Lucy is wearing her hot pink life jacket and so ready to go

I read once where LIFE should be EQUAL parts of anticipation, participation, and reflection. I believe that.

Ghostly, go play on your deck. Enjoy every minute of it and then 'reflect' on your wonderful family time later.

SJ...fingers crossed your H catches fish.

We are having grilled fish for dinner tonight.

Jennie - Lucy must be a sight in her life jacket!

I've been feeling a little bit down today. I'm sttttaaaalllinnnggggg the run on the treadmill I promised myself. Gonna think through why I feel down, rather than the quick fix of endorphins from my workout. Then I'll work out.

The threads are a nice diversion though!

Hi, Heaters)\

I am still here. Finally my nutrition has somewhat straightened up again, and I've even made my weekly meal planning. This time my eating binges will get bloody war - and I am not losing it!

Dates... Has anyone said "Dates?". It's just my Number 1 indulgence in healthy eating. Like SJ, I can eat a ton. And just today I made my fav desert of dates, coconut cream, frozen bananas, cocoa, almonds, ceshews. All put in blender - and ....ahhhh... I need an "eating emergency break" to stop eating it)

SJ, LDT - Thank you for telling about your boat and kayacking trips. I enjoy them so much - as if I can "squeeze in" a little bit there and travel with you.


Ghostly - ssssstttttttaaaaaallllllllllliiiiiiiiinnnngggggg? I know a thing or two about this) Enjoy your night on the deck)

Gleefan - Get on that treadmill. There's nothing like exercise to improve mood. Even 10 minutes of moderate pace can be a game changer.

My healthy wishes to all - have a great Sunday)
