Made the vet apt. Monday.
Went to the bank for some "financial planning"
Found out that my account entitles me to a free safety deposit box, overdraft protection and a US funds account.
Realized at 3:30 I had "forgotten" to eat. So I had a snack.
Packed some more.
OH! My Farmer was cleaning out his barn and he tossed some red brick dye* into the burn pile and Josie managed to get in the way. I have a PINK dog!!! She had a bath, but she's still pink.
I'll have to post a photo.
Chai with whipping cream
2 pepperonis and a 1/2 slice of Havarti
1/2 bottle of rose
Perch on the grill on the BBQ (mine was dipped in egg and then almond crumbs) Caprese salad, fried zucchini, frozen berries and cottage cheese. Lemon Thriller tea.
5 Lindt Lindor Dark Chocolate Balls :D
Chai with whipping cream.
* I didn't even know this stuff existed!
And Lily's escape attempt from the other day:
Since I'm posting photos...
My Farmer and Daughter walking through Old Quebec City:
I loved the "art" hanging in the street:
The paving stones are curved around this statue:
Notre Dame Des Victories:
[QUOTE=winencandy;937296]And it's Friday!
So I'm drinkin wine and eatin chocolate!!![/QUOTE]
Well I guess you'd better enjoy mine too, since it's off plan for now. :p
Love the photos! Your dog is hilarious and the QC photos made me soooo homesick. That's where I met my hubby. I used to work in the Old City and we would go for romantic walks along the terrace after we got off work.

I enjoyed it :)
Maybe too much this weekend (too much sugar - I was a "good girl" with the wine :p )

It was a beautiful place! I loved walking there! I have more photos, I'll try to post them soon.
In the morning I felt kinda bloated and sick.
? The Lindt balls?
We drove to Wyoming and bought 175 feet of antique double loop fencing I found on Kijiji.
The afternoon was spent packing and getting ready to go to a young friend's (28th) birthday party. At the party I had one gin & pink lemonade, a glass of rose (that didn't taste "right") and then a couple of glasses of a white wine from a friend*
I took a crockpot full of pre-made, battered chicken wings. The meal was totally non primal - battered chicken wings, meatballs, hashbrown potato casserole, taco salad cheesecake AND one of the girls brought a Skor/cream cheese/brown sugar dip for apples. [B]OMG!!![/B] I ate too much of it, (I couldn't STOP) and felt sick and bloated for the rest of the evening. So much so that I stopped drinking after supper. I even laid down in the backseat of the truck for about an hour. I had mineral water for the rest of the evening. We were home by 11.
*I'd actually gone over to where my Farmer was to get the keys so I could go home for a different bottle of wine and my friend said "go get a bottle out of my truck" He had a BOX full of assorted wines in his truck!
Slow morning. Roasted a chicken and made a Caprese salad for a family potluck in the afternoon. I cooked a pound of bacon, eating a few pieces with some Gouda and cherry tomatoes.
Family potluck. Slightly better food choices. Chicken, ham, salad, tomatoes, cheesecake and a piece of blueberry pie. A cousin made it - gluten free - she's trying a no wheat diet to see if it will help clear up her skin. I talked to her a little about it.
When I got home, the 5 remaining Lindt balls were staring at me. I want to go sugar free again this week, so I ate them...
Sugar is EVIL
I feel like I'm starting over again tomorrow. Perhaps I may have to "re-think" this weekend thing...
But the alternative is the Whole 30 mindset - which I CAN'T/WON'T do again...
Hmmm, there must be a 1/2 way I can live with. I find it easier to say "No sugar during the week, but I can have some on the weekend" but then I went SUGAR CRAZY on the weekend... I also know from experience that I DON'T do well with "You can NOT EVER (or for 30 days) have - " But maybe, if I can remember how I FEEL after eating sugar, it will help. I think the part of Whole 30 that doesn't work for me is the "You will FAIL if you have" part. The super strict part...
Now I'm just rambling...
Lily has a vet apt. tomorrow morning. I practiced with her - rubbing alcohol and a dull needle - so she'd know what might happen.
I think you have a point about the super strict part. I aim at 100% compliance, but don't sweat it over minor deviances. I think if you concentrate on "this will make me feel really sick" "this is setting me up for diabetes" you'll find it easier to pass on things, and cheat only in small amounts when you do cheat. "I prefer being healthy" is easier on our psyches than "I must not". I know that small amounts of sugar - occasionally! - especially when buffered by other food, is not going to hurt me, so I allow that.
Of course, I do have the advantage of coming off of years of being obese, and of battling health problems, so people tend to not pressure me. They figure I need to do it. ;) And one of the advantages of being a middle-aged woman sliding ever closer to the next category, is that I royally don't care what people think anymore.
How about the No S plan:
No Sugar, Starches, Snacks, or Seconds
Sometimes on days starting with S
Was reminded of this actual diet (I remember seeing the book years ago) by someone's post yesterday.
