I have such little energy that all I do after work is the chiropractor and then I get home and very little gets done. My energy is gone, my belly is big, and my knees are killing me. My veggie garden hasn't been touched since October. I have bags of bulbs that need to be planted, something I usually love to do...
After loading the pics off the camera card, I got a clue as to what has happened.
It's no wonder I can't get my butt out and get my chores done! Too many carbs, too much fat. I need to make a change.
This morning, Hubby and I started the South Beach Diet. No carbs. No sugar. No fruit. It is called Phase 1 and it lasts 2 weeks. Then you enter Phase 2 which is less restrictive. We haven't even had dinner yet and I'm stuffed. This is a lot of work and I spent a lot of money at the grocery store, getting the necessary supplies for the food I will make. Lots of preparation, lots of planning. Hopefully, it will pay off and we will be healthy and thinner, very soon. This diet concentrates on low-glycemic foods.
Kalyn's Kitchen. I altered it a bit by adding more olive brine to the mayo, so mine is a little watery than her recipe would be, but I tasted it without the other 1/3 c of mayo and was happy with it.
Her website also has a feature that allows you to save the recipes and add them to a shopping list. I know it sounds basic for some of you that are so incredibly organized, but I need all the help I can get!
In Houghton, Michigan last week. I kept thinking the hotel was not using this area to its full advantage!!
This is the view out of the rear of the hotel. If I were the manager, there would be a brick patio with chairs and tables and those portable heaters. The only thing out there was a cheap plastic chair with an ashtray for the employees that smoke. The restaurant faces this gorgeous view.
A pensive walk on the pier. This city is 7 hours away from where we live.
The irony of her walking away from me was way too obvious.
This pier jutted out onto the Keewanaw Waterway. It was cold but sunny in Houghton on this day, but we got out of there just in time. Two days later, they got 5 inches of snow. They are scheduled to get over 240" more. The 3rd snowiest city in the country.
How can this child be MINE???
