OK, Now That's Funny!

Hey Everyone! I've been busy as a bee - I started my job on April 28th and I have been going, going, going. I keep checking in though and seeing what everyone is doing and posting. Apparently, someone has noticed this as I saw a message today when I logged on that said I haven't been posting but been lurking - LOL LOL - that really cracked me up! It was one of those moments where I found myself looking over my shoulder and saying "OMG, someone's watching me!" I totally am a lurker, I love to see what everyone's posting but often log off without posting my own update. Alright then, so I've been officially called on my lurking ways and will try to post some more . So, the scoop here is I have been sticking to the low-carb life but haven't gone back to induction which I will eventually do but as of right now straight up LC is actually working fine. I've lost 3 lbs since last time I posted. Not exactly rapid WL but that's not all I'm in it for anyways so that's alright with me. I feeling pretty darn good lately and that delights me. I recently found a yummy find at the grocery store - Low Carb Pita Bread called Joseph's Flax, Oat Bran Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread. It is a soft pita bread that is very yummy and only has 4 g of Net Carbs per pita. I made a very yummy jazzed up egg-salad sandwich with it for lunch today. This entailed 2 chopped hard boiled eggs, 1 tsp mayo, 1 tsp spicy mustard, salt & pepper mixed together in the usual way. I then scooped this onto the center of the pita and topped with thin slices of red bell pepper, a few slices on red onion and some romaine lettuce. I then folded it in half and packed it in a baggie for lunch today. It kept very well - the pita was not a bit soggy, the veggies stayed crisp and it was a very filling meal for lunch. If you haven't had this yet, you've gotta try it! I bet it would make really yummy low-carb pizza too.
I've been trying to get in the 8 - 8 oz glasses of water a day - some days that works out and on others it doesn't - instead I'll find myself downing 4 diet pepsi's then trying to squeeze in 2 bottles of water before bed because I'm so thirsty for water. Has anyone else ever done this? Ughh - well don't start - it's terrible. I find myself having to get up in the night to go to the bathroom or wake up in the morning after a terrible night's sleep with a bladder that is ready to explode! That is getting really old let me tell you so I'm halting all water at 9 pm from now on in hopes of better rest! I did drink my water today though so I am on track.
DH and our little girl planted 6 tomato plants today and we'll add some pepper plants this weekend. We had a great crop of fresh tomatoes last year so I'm hoping for more. There is nothing like home-grown, red, plump and juicy tomatoes in the summer! We've also got some blueberries growing for the first time and I pray we get to enjoy them before the birds do!
The weather here has been incredible - the skies are crisp blue and full of fluffy white clouds, temps in the mid 80's, soft breeze and wonderful. Everyone is talking about summer and how hot it will be. Here in Savannah it get's pretty steamy by July/August and everyone starts wilting by mid-day and I'm sure this summer will no different but I will not complain. We live about 45 minutes from the Tybee Island beach so we'll probably make a few trips out there. It still seems funny to me to have to drive that far to get to one - I grew up and up until 2 1/2 years ago lived in Daytona Beach area where it only took 10 minutes to get there. What is crazy is that once I was married and working, I hardly ever went! Well, I think I've said enough for now and likely satisfied the lurky fairy that watches over me. Hope you all are having a great week.
