  • Ugh, that I would get so angry about. We have a family of coondogs that lives across the street who bark quite a bit too, but they do quiet down occasionally. They had moved out for a while (divorce) and a new family moved in to rent the house. The gentleman who lived there before must have won the house in the divorce b/c the renters moved out and the family of coondogs is back. I let mine out last night and hollered for them to come in and the coondogs went apesh*t. I hollered to Brad "The Browns are back!" lol The barking dogs aren't much of a bother unless it's summertime and we have the windows open. Even then they don't bother me much (I can tune them out for the most part) but they disturbe my daughter's naps. We usually call the cops when they get to be too bad and then the family puts bark collars on them for a week, then we're back to the same noisy dogs again.

    • I can understand dogs barking for a reason, then stopping. It is the non-stop part that drives me crazy. Especially when we have overnight guests as the barkers are just under the spare bedroom window. Our houses are pretty close together, but luckily the rooms that are the most bothered by the barking, besides the spare, are our public spaces, so the rest of us can sleep at least. But when they go out at night or away for the weekend (and have someone "check" on the dogs) OMG, it is honestly all I can do not to pull out the bb gun to try to retrain them.

      They have been reported numerous times by all the neighbors, they just think it must be someone elses dogs that were reported. Our homes are on the inside of a curvey road so our back yards are small and wedge shaped, so the barking bothers at least 4 homes. And all the owners would have to do is to lock the doggy door when they go away. I wish some coyote or fox would slip in that door, then I am pretty sure it would get sealed.

      • Alternate day Fasting threads on the Nutrition page

        If you are interested. I put up two. One for support and Chat, one for Debate and Science.

        My Up Day is proceeding in the normal frustrating fashion: I am not hungry enough to eat all the things I would like to taste. I had a good breakfast and lunch, and am now worried that I might not get hungry for dinner!

        I know, nice thing to worry about.

        Oh...

        The Aldi Experiment

        I've been doing it for a while now. The give-the-money-to-Honey-if-I-don't-walk aspect quickly fell by the wayside. And I have not stuck to my $10 limit. But I HAVE reduced my grocery spending by about 25%, and I have gotten to the point where I really enjoy the walks. It does not seem like a chore anymore, just a normal way of getting groceries. And I've increased my civic responsibility level by picking up trash.

        So, I judge it a success!

          • Forgot my yogurt yesterday

            Otherwise, I ate everything I intended, but not too much of it. A satisfying Up Day. And I got my walk. But feels like nothing much else got done. Here's how it went:

            Up at 5:00

            8:45 1/2C vegetable slurry with a
            poached egg
            about 1C turkey-cream cheese leftovers

            12:30 sashimi- tuna, salmon, chirashi, pickled squid salad, mussels
            1/4C rice with fake crab(r4 rolls)
            seaweed salad

            6:30 pot roast
            roasted sweet potato, turnip, carrot
            1/2C strawberry ice cream

            Water: 9 glasses
            Walking: 60"
            Pains: mostly in the morning, and eve after sitting down

            Bed at 9:30

            I did get the dogs' nails trimmed. Salem and Chica had it done at the vet. The one time we tried with Chica, she SCREAMED when we cut the first one, even though no quick was involved. No thanks. And Salem is a thrasher. I am just not up for it. Chloe sits nice and quietly, though. Glad to get away when it is done, but at least she lets you do it! I think she is just grateful that she doesn't have to go down the hall with the vet technician.

            There was a poor lady there when we arrived, who was facing having her cat put down, and crying in the lobby. What a horrible time. I remember when we put Cruiser down. Even though she was suffering, it was hard to do. I'm glad I held it together and was able to sit calmly and pet her while she died, but boy, did I lose it afterwards.

            Woo. I do not need to be thinking about this right now. I don't want to start the day with a crying headache.

            Musings- my nose has been kind of stuffy in the mornings. I think it may be the yogurt. After the two weeks, I am going to see about dropping it.

            In hopes of having another surge of Down Day energy today, I am planning on doing some major work in my sewing room. Organizing and actual SEWING!

            • Sounds like you have a busy day planned. Glad to see Chica is still living with you and you're enjoying the Aldi's walks.

              • Sabine, when you get a chance, if you don't mind doing it, would you add a link to the JUDDD debate thread into the first post on the JUDDD support thread. It might be helpful. Especially now that we are getting free advice on how to do the JUDDD, by adding sugar one day. thanks!

                • Okay, link added! And I was wild and crazy and responded to Choco. Probably a mistake. I should just keep my head down. I thought it was nice of Emmie to give us some more details on what has worked for her. I'm thinking some fish will be good on my next Down Day. My Costco had cans of wild caught tuna, no fillers! I bought a six-pack.

                  • yep, it took a lot for me not to respond to him. He is just a contrarian, spreading his gems (pure sugar for a carb refeed-honestly!) here and there to the consternation of many!

                    I am still figuring out what works for ud's vs dd's, but had pistachio crusted salmon last night and asparagus with a sort of hollandaise sauce and it was amazing. I am doing a bag of the konjac noodles with broccoli and chicken tonight on my dd.

                    • Hey Girls....... I'm reading with great interest here............. I might give this up/down thing a try too. But I want to do it HFLC still - if thats even an option. I'm gonna go do some reading on it. Sabine - have you weighed yet? I don't even know how many days you've been doing this - I sorta came in late. Thats what I get for stepping away from some of the journals! UGH ---

                      • Tomi come on over to the alternate day thread. You can do uddd in any macro combo you can make work. And we are working to make it a very supportive thread.

                        • Tomi- I am definitely sticking to low-carb during my JUDDD trial. I have tended toward a little more HighFat as well, but I was never doing that strictly. But I don't see why not.

                          I have been doing it since March 5th. My numbers (I've been weighing every day) are encouraging, but I don't want to really analyze them until I have a full month under my belt. I think that will be especially important since part of this diet is an ingrained up-and-down. However, my jeans are definitely looser, and I THINK my stomach looks smaller. That may be due to FODMAP experimentation(which is a royal pain in the butt!). Or maybe just my imagination!

                          Woke up ravenous this morning, so had breakfast earlier than usual, and it was fantastic. Ham, egg, cheese, and two enormous strawberries(likely mutants!).

                          Here's how yesterday went:

                          Up at 5:30

                          11:30 small spinach salad- spinach, 1 strip bacon, 1/2 hard egg, vinegar

                          4:45 strawberry-rhubarb yogurt

                          8:00 1/2C vegetable slurry with poached egg

                          Water: 9 glasses
                          Walking: 60"
                          Pains: yes

                          Bed at 9:30

                          I like to pick up old magazines at our library once in a while- 10 cents a piece. Last time I grabbed two issues of Diabetes Forecast, just to see. They had a Holiday Menus section that was really pretty good. Listen to this:
                          Garlic and Sage Roast Pork
                          Roasted Winter Vegetables
                          Spinach, Fennel, and Pear Salad
                          Spiced Roasted Salmon
                          Holiday Carrot Soup
                          Sauteed Grape Tomatoes
                          Party Shrimp with Cilantro Dip
                          Thai Chicken Salad in Cucumber Cups
                          Crustless Spinach Quiche

                          I left out the Biscotti and Bruschetta! And think I would be perfectly happy without them, too. their official line may be whole grains, but there was a marked absence of them in the recipes. Of course, I would substitute the real thing for their fat-free (blech!) cheeses in the quiche.

                          Making some more mayonaise today. I found a jar that will hold my immersion blender, and am going to try it, Pebbles-style.

                          • Okay - I'm in on the JUDDD/Alternate Day Diet thing. Today is down day for me. I'm going to have one egg fried in Kerrygold (1 TB), then lots of hot tea through out the afternoon.......... dinner is 3 oz of ground beef and steamed veggies. 497 calories with 59% fat, 29% prot, 13% carbs. Its a good start. I will use Friday as my beginning weight for reference. I'm giving it a month - if I lose even 2 pounds I'm going to stay with it until I reach my goal. On UP day I will resume the EMF protocol.

                            • Hey, Tomi. Glad you are joining us. I'll be interested to see how it works for you.

                              Comment


                              • No Pebbles for breakfast

                                I usually look at Pebbles' journal first when I get on. She posts early in the morning, so she's conveniently near the top of the journals when I get on, and she always has something good to say.

                                I feel sad that she's not there this morning.

                                I understand that she needs the time away, and I want it to be good for her, but this is my journal, so I get to have it be ALL ABOUT ME! And say 'I want my Pebbles!'

                                And of course, I worry. I hope she won't be bingeing(Tried to spell that without the 'e'. I sort of like 'binging' better! )

                                Okay, back to the main event. Here's what happened to ME yesterday:

                                Up at 5:30

                                7:30 scrambled egg cooked in butter
                                wrapped in a slice of ham with some
                                cheddar
                                2 enormous strawberries- probably the equivalent of 8 normal ones

                                11:30 3 coconut macaroons
                                1 babybel cheese

                                2:30 salmon patty fried in
                                butter
                                shrimp
                                homemayo
                                1/2 avocado
                                1/4C glazed walnuts

                                4:15 1 coconut macaroon
                                2 oz milk chocolate
                                1 sm0ked pork chop

                                5:45 yogurt with
                                1T raspberry jam

                                Water: 9 glasses
                                Walking: no
                                Pains: yes

                                Bed at 10:30

                                The chocolate was threatening to turn into a snack attack, but I stopped it in its tracks with that pork chop. I ate the yogurt a little later because I realized I needed to get it in before the day was over. The jam I had with it was because it was staring me in the face, looking beautiful. Sweet, but it cut the yogurt nicely and was delicious. I regret nothing. Well, except the milk chocolate. Not very tasty. I prefer dark chocolate now. Wow! Never would have thought that would happen.

                                My weight went down today. After an up Day. That is puzzling to me, but very gratifying. I tell myself it means the weight is really coming off, it is not just because I am 'empty'.
