Where have I been?! Arizona, Ohio, Georgia… it’s been a busy month for this “low carb traveler”! 🙂
I also helped my son get moved, brought home a new great dane (now we are three!), enjoyed a VERY quiet Thanksgiving this year, and I’m heading to Knoxville this weekend to take my daughter to a concert. 🙂 Whew! I’m ready for a slooooow December, lol.
I’ve been sporting all of my new dresses and shoes while out & about – (I did A LOT of shopping in October, lol!) – and in between I’ve been curled up in my PJ’s writing & working.
I’m gearing up for us to have an exciting 2016 together with lots of FUN new challenges and exciting additions!
One of the things I’ve been working on behind the scenes is a total redesign of this site and the emails you receive with my updates, along with mapping out the 2016 low carb challenges. Make sure you’re on the email list if you aren’t already so you don’t miss all the fun updates! 🙂
I apologize for “going quiet” on you. I got busy between traveling, training a new dane, and really just needed some downtime in between. 😛
I also kind of felt like my meals were getting boring. LOL. I suppose I stopped updating much while I was on my trip to Phoenix – where I literally ate a “salmon salad” two or three times a day! haha. I mean, how many times can you post a picture of the same meal?! Heh. Here it is, by the way:
That was the BEST low carb meal on the menu at the hotel where I was staying. It was delicious of course! I also had the bone-in ribeye with greens one night, a bunless burger for lunch one of the days, and had jumbo shrimp on my caesar salad once, but otherwise I pretty much lived on the salmon that entire trip.
Oh wait – I almost forgot, I did leave the hotel for one meal. I had lunch at a Mexican restaurant with a friend. I ordered a BIG salad piled high with chicken, shrimp and avocado. I had to special order it a bit (no chips, etc) but it was fabulous:
It’s been a rainy dreary day here in Tennessee today, with a few more days of rain expected. I haven’t really felt like eating much, and just feel tired today for some reason. I had coffee and an Atkins bar for breakfast (blech! lol), and a big bowl of cottage cheese with pecans & strawberries earlier. I was thinking I might make tuna salad for dinner tonight. Easy is GOOD on a day like today! 🙂
I think I broke my foot. lol…
I am such a clutz. One of my many endearing qualities. 😛 I tripped the other night and bent my big toe in a way it should never EVER bend. I managed to peel myself off the driveway and limp inside (lol), and other than some slight swelling it seems fine. Maybe it’s a break, maybe just a sprain, all I know is it’s screwing up my Fitbit steps & fitness goals! Heh. It’ll heal…
In the meantime, this is a good time to work on my upper body toning. I’ve been calling that a “goal” for weeks now, but haven’t actually been DOING it. I really want TONE ARMS! Or at least I don’t want my arm to wave at someone by itself. 🙂 Ack! Here’s a good Batwing Arm Workout Video on YouTube I found, by the way.
I’m hoping my foot feels better by Friday night though, because I’m planning to dance the night away (or at least to 10,000 steps!) at the concert. 🙂 Plus I got some new 4″ heels I can’t wait to wear. I’ll have to get a few new pictures and show you some of the great outfits I’ve ordered online lately, because they were great finds.
I’ve really missed sharing my daily food diaries with you here, so expect to start seeing those again this week. I’m going to be home now for the better part of the next couple of months, save a few short trips here and there, so I’ll try to get a little more adventurous in the kitchen. 😉
What have YOU been up to? I am really aiming to finish this year STRONG, and look smoking hot for my New Year’s Eve plans! I hope you’re feeling motivated and inspired too. I am NOT waiting to make a resolution in January. I plan to walk into January feeling AMAZING. Let’s do this together!! 🙂 *cheers*
