Doing the happy dance again this morning. After 2 weeks on induction, weight had gone back from 167 to 155. Dr. Aktins, thanks be to God for your diet. Let the naysayers say nay all they want. My dr. tells me: "Whatever you're doing diet-wise, keep it up!" And I will.
Atkins really is an interesting discipline. You just learn a whole different way of eating, and as long as you stick to it (we've been doing it for five years!), it really works well. What does a typical Atkins day look like? This morning I fried up some sausage and served it up with an egg over medium for both Cindi and me. Cindi made a roasted turkey for lunch. We ate it with a low-carb gravy and a salad of fresh spinach, feta, and crumbled egg in an oil and vinegar dressing. Dinner was some of that turkey stir fried with veggies and fajita sauce, served over fresh salad greens and with a coconut-milk custard for dessert. The day finished up with a cube or three of Jarsburg cheese and sipping some charodonnay - the boxed variety. What's not to like about this way of eating, I ask you?
Of course it would be totally CADDY of me to mention that the men won at Pinochle on Sunday night AND on Friday night. So I won't mention it - but if any of you see Cindi or Crystal or Rachel, you sure can - right, Randy and Scott? : )
