I cheated! (Day 531)

Hi all!

How is everyone doing today? I can't believe it's Wednesday already, that means the week is half over. My house is smelling amazing right now, there is a roast and potatoes in the crock pot as I type this. :) Yes, today is a low carb day and I'm having potatoes with dinner tonight (sue me). I love potatoes and I'm making sure it fits into my carb limit for the day. In fact, I had some mashed potatoes with dinner last night as well. And I'll be having them tomorrow too (it's a high carb day tomorrow though). The day after we have a roast, we make meat pie. It's just left over meat, potatoes, carrots, some gravy and 2 pie crusts. :) Believe me, it's absolutely delicious, but full of carbs (obviously).

Well as my title suggests, I cheated this morning. I stepped on the scale because I was curious (oh well), and the carb cycling is working well. I'm not recording this weight, I'll be doing that on Sunday. But I did like the number that I saw on the scale. Oh and I also cheated last night, oops! I was laying in bed, trying to fall asleep. Then all of a sudden I got this huge craving for some Cheetos (which of course we have in the cupboard right now) and I gave in and got a bowl of them. But I was smart, I chose a smaller bowl so I wouldn't eat quite so many of them. It was all still within my ranges, for the most part, so I'm not really feeling guilty about it, but I know that I didn't need them.

Here's a recap of yesterday:

I did so much better yesterday than I did the day before. I'm still trying to figure out how to up my protein count more with eating so much. But I have realized that I'm really enjoying eating low carb, it's a lot easier than the high carb days. And I never thought I would say those words, I'm the girl who could have easily eaten pasta for every single year. Let's be honest, I was a carb-o-holic. I did have pasta just about every day plus some bread or oats or something like that. And there's nothing wrong with any of those things, I do still eat them, just a lot less of them now.

But I have to keep this one short. I haven't even started my paper yet and it's due on Sunday (eek!) So I need to get writing that, and then catching up on all the blogs I follow later tonight. Tomorrow is NSV Thursday, so be prepared for that. :) Until next time!



  1. Ha, my husband tends to get cravings for Cheetos A LOT!

  2. You should try this recipe for mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. I tried several mashed cauliflower recipes before I found this one, but this is the best! I don't miss potatoes any more!
