    Good for you. If it works do it. Your making positive changes and thats whats really important.

    I have had clients who havnt lost weight and I got them to eat MORE. It works. Something to think about for the future.

    Well done you for getting stuck in with the hard graft, no wonder hubby was impressed. Next he'll come home to you wearing a tool belt and hammering up dry wall.

    The LHT programme can be really simple. Check out my log to see how im structuring my week.

    Oh I'm quite handy with power tools. I have a shop full of them - and yes - they are all mine! A drill press, a scroll saw, a chop saw, a table saw, a router table, a couple of table sanders --- and a miriad of hand held tools! I used to have a small garden art business......... go back in my journal and you will find some pics of the trellises I used to build (pre-economic crash). People would ask me at the garden shows "so does your husband build these?" .......... nope I do! I always got big pats on the back from the "older" gentlemen! I LOVE tools and building things! As for drywall....... been there done that too. My ex and I built a house together - we did most of it on our own. So I also know how to wire and do plumbing. I've put in an in ground sprinkle system too! This girl is no sissy!

    I shocked my husband when we built our deck. I huffed the 20 foot boards to the compound miter saw and cut them myself while he did the easy job of screwing the deck boards down onto the platform. I love being a capable woman!

    Ditto, Jenn! If I get tired of waiting on my hubby to do something I just do it myself. He came home from work yesterday and was amazed at my new concrete block flowerbed. At first he thought I had just added a layer on top - but I said "no, I took the whole thing apart and re-built it! Cuz it wasn't level and it drove me nuts!" He was impressed! Girlie-girls who are affraid to break a nail drive me nuts! Buck up buttercup!!!!

    Thats PERFECT! and oh so true.

    Lunch with my friend was great! we had 10 years of catching up to do - but we did it. 3 1/2 hours of talking at the restaraunt. Good thing we decided to do a 1:30 lunch - we weren't in anyones way. We decided to make this a regular thing. Hope we don't drop the ball.

    Dinner tonight was step daughter #2's birthday celebration. Nothing big - drove the hour to her town and went to the same Indian place we always go to. It was nice cuz step daughter #1 wasn't there. We all had a good time. I ordered Tandoori Shrimp. 10 grilled shrimp with a yogurt based spicy sauce for dipping. The totally overcooked the shrimp and they were like eating a tough steak! Good flavor - but totally overcooked. So to get my numbers up I ate 2 ounces of almonds when I got home. Number are good with 10% carbs, 69% fats, and 23% proteins....... I know - thats 102%. I round up when recording my macros --- so if something says its 3.4 I always record it as 4. Sorta messes up the end result - but its not like I'm mixing something and need absolute measurements. Its close enough.......

    so total food today:
    3 eggs fried in bacon fat
    small ceasar salad with 3 oz salmon, grilled
    10 small shrimp, grilled with 2 TB tandoori sauce
    2 oz. almonds

    Its a good day in bedrock when I can eat out twice in one day and still feel good about what I ate! Looking forward to the scales in the morning.

    Its going to be a long night.......... hubby was volunteered to deep pit a pork shoulder for nephews wedding "after" reception. So, he's out there right now stocking up the fire. He will put the meat in the pit at about 3 am. and it will come out at about 11 am. The party starts at 1 pm about 30 minutes away. This is for his nephew who got married down in california back in April. They wanted to have a reception up here for those who were not able to attend the wedding. No one is very excited about it........

    OMG WOMAN! That's AWESOME! My eyes literally bugged out of my head when I saw that! Makes me wonder if I'm not eating enough fat! lol Great job!

    How was the pig? It's a bummer that no one was excited for the party. Were they expecting gifts? I would have considered it kind of rude to expect gifts given they got married so long ago and so far away. It's like saying "you didn't come to my first reception nor did you give us a gift at that one, so we're hosting another party and you can bring your gift this time" kind of thing... I would be turned off by it and probably skip. lol

    what a great weekend! Saturday we went to the "after" reception for nephew and new bride. Fun times with family and friends! Food was the typical potluck spread. Lots of bread, rice, pastas and beans. I filled my plate with pork, turkey and fruits/veggies. I passed on the strawberry shortcake dessert and drank only water. Then the hubby and I packed some food and clothes and went to the lake for the night. We had only healthy food on board - except for the corn chips - I ate one. We did have a rum and diet coke. My first in a couple weeks.

    I'm walking again. Just a mile a day for now. Feels good!

    I'm liking this higher fat diet - I feel more satisfied and full. This morning 3 eggs fried in 1 TB butter. I'm stuffed.

    I've been fighting the pH in our pond water all summer! The water is green we can hardly see the the fish! Normally we can see the rocks on the bottom and the water is pretty clean and clear. I've been told by a couple different pond supply stores that high pH is a huge problem with year. So today I'm doing a water exchange to see I can get things balanced out a bit more. I'm going to syphen off as much water as I possibly can without leaving the fish high and dry, do some cleaning of ick off the bottom and then fill her back up with tap water. Hopefully this will do the trick. For some reason over the winter we had a huge build up of organic material on the bottom -- I need to do some more studying to figure out how to keep this from happening again next spring. We haven't really been able to enjoy the pond this year because of the green murky water. Good thing it doesn't smell bad!

    Son is dragging his feet on this home buying adventure and I'm going to have to talk to him about finding his own apartment until he's ready to make this move into home ownership. Time to leave the nest!!!
