Fruit, quiche, proscioutto and cream cheese wrapped around asparagus, MONKEY BREAD! and Starbucks Coffee with milk. Sigh...I love Monkey bread. Amazingly other than a tummy ache I seem to have escaped relatively unscathed. I had just decided that the reason I was feeling like I couldnt' breathe easily was milk (I had been using a creamer that has milk, HWC, Natural flavors and sugar). And boom....I still feel like my throat is tight but I didn't throw up or anything from the MONKEY BREAD! I love MONKEY BREAD! So....I will get back on track. i will I will.. TIred of being fat!
    I'm with ya on the good coffee and monkey bread.....

      • So in the ongoing saga with my mother...My 11 year old nephew spent the weekend with me because he needed some one on one time. Convinced that everyone loves his sisters more (eye roll). I wanted a picnic for my bday (today) so we met at Suwanee River State Park about halfway between Tallahassee and Gainesville. My parents drove over to with my mother obviously irritated about it. She brought brownies. When I asked if they were gluten free she said no. Is the icing gluten free? Nope. She checked to make sure it was milk free for my niece and saw that it had gluten in it. So not only did she not bother to bring a gf dessert for me she deliberately brought one that was not. Not even sure why this makes me mad as she has pulled things like this before. But it did. So...rant over.

        i came home and had steak and potatoes and made banana/chocolate ice cream with wildflower raw honey. Oh my gosh it was good! Thankfully I only had a half of a frozen banana or I would be making more. If you have never done this:

        Take a frozen banana, mix with powdered cocoa or melted cocoa..appx 2 TBS and honey for taste. Or no honey. The banana makes it very sweet. Mix it in a blender. Yummmmmmmeeeeeeee!!!!

          • I have spent the last three days in a training class. It was good and I feel like I learned a lot but...I spent the last three days in a small building with very little windows with about 16 other women some of whom laughed and giggled and bitched under their breaths the whole time (despite having made the choice to go to this, not being forced to..oh yes and supposedly being professional). I sat on my ass until it is quite literally numb, I ache all over and I now know why I was depressed all those years I sat in an office. No wonder the whole frickin' world is crazy!

                • Oh dear........... sorry about the weather. Its been 85 for the past few days here......... totally not normal for this time of year. Last year it was raining and in the 50's all through May and June. Crazy weather all around!

                  I hope the BBQ and swim were fun and relaxing

                  • Hi Val. Happy birthday, late. I'm sorry your mom was such a butt about the dessert. I hope you are feeling better now that your training is over and the weather is better.

                    • Wow it has been a long time since I posted. Hello to everyone!! I have missed you. Just jumped off the wagon train and went out by myself for a while. Still battling the whole potato chip problem but working to get back on course. I know I have put on weight but I refuse to weigh and find out how much. My goal for now is to start working out in the mornings. Primarily because by the time I get home I just don't do it. Start HIIT and strength and watch calories around 12-1400 a day. And try not to obsess, live a life but stay focused enough to get healthy! Any and all words of wisdom, encouragement, etc are always welcome! I'm baaccccckkk

                        • Yes, welcome back.
                          In the past year I have discovered that I am gluten, grain, dairy and legume intolerant.

                          I am trying to make sense of it all through my blog: http://www.goingagainstthegrain.co.uk

                          • Hi Val. Welcome back. There are a lot of us in a "pick up the pieces and start over" kind of state right now so you're not alone.

                            • Another wesk another fail. Ugh! I just cant seem to get it together. I was at a meeting Wed evening and theybhad brought in trays from Publix with co, d cuts, cheese, fruit and veggies, etc. One tray had tuna salad, chicken salad and a few others. The tuna salad was very good. I have never had their tuna salad before but decided that and gf crackers would be good for lunch the next day. Yeah I know...no one said I was the sharpest crayon my tummynwas not happy with me at all. The only good thing I can say is it aallll went away all I can do is pick myself up and try again.

                              I did introduce a friend to low carb eating. Hd was dx with diabetes earlier this year anf almost immediately put on insulin. Then gained 40 lbs. His BS was running in the 200's on average with the insulin. He cut down this week to around 30 grams of carbs a day and his BS has been in then130'S. Has horrible low carb flu but very excited about the results. It can be done!
