Straight Up Atkins- Day Three

At work.  Yesterday it was pretty easy to keep busy and eat very little.  But, at work, being bored out of my mind; not so easy.   I managed to wait until 12:45 to eat lunch.  I managed to drink 32 ounces of green tea diet with a touch of lemonade mix.  But, after driving home in the dark, having a hot shower etc, I was more than ready to EAT.

Breakfast was egg beaters with jimmy dean sausage crumbles and 2 ounces of cheese.  Lunch was a large container of romaine and spring lettuce with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a cup of the pulled pork.  Dinner was the last cup of pulled pork and the remainder of the fried sauerkraut.  Then I had a cheese stick wrapped in ham slices.  I am still working on finishing my large cup of coffee.  I cut back on the Splenda; trying for the goal of only three packets a day.  So far, only one.  I may whip up some cream for dessert. Yes, this menu is "heavy" on fat.

People think Atkins is about eating meat.  Wrong.  It's about eating FAT.  Butter, cream, olive oil and cheese with a side of sour cream and avocado.

G walked the dog and changed out the kitchen, under the counter, light system.  LED now instead of halogen.  Not as bright.  And I now have a battery operated light above my computer.  Nice.  Softly illuminating my computer screen.  And it switches itself off.  The LED lights use lots less energy and won't heat the cabinets.  I always worried about that.

Day Three is nearly over.  I have a new book to read.  A Romance.  Hunky, rich FBI agent saves snappy beautiful girl.  No thinking involved.  Suspension of reality.

Tomorrow I am going to the grocery to buy more ham, more cheese, zucchini to make "pasta" or "pizza", celery and sugar free jello.  And more sausage crumbles?  I need green beans, broccoli and chicken.  Lettuce.  Diet green tea mix.  The fridge is empty and I think that's the way I like it.  If I manage to drink enough green tea (caffeine) tomorrow, I will pull out all the fridge shelving and wash everything in the sink with really hot water.  Make it sparkle.  Then go buy new food.

I'm tired.  Probably boring the socks off you.  Sorry.

;) Not really!

I had venison tonight, cooked by DH. Really good.
