Wow..I am so tired today, but I did get the lawn mowed and put a lot of stuff away from the trip.

I am going to Oregon in about 4 weeks with grandson to get some cousin bonding. We are staying a week. My daughter has lots of stuff planned for us to do.

I made a nice salad earlier. Having a steak tonight.

Pups are happy to be home, they did well with the traveling though.

DE sounds like a wonderful time!!

22 hrs in the car. I hear ya on that. One thing is nice when traveling we have the RV on long drive times. We stop and sleep, cook, and whatever any time we want. Nothing like having your home behind you when traveling far LOL

Glad you got pups that travel well. Bolt does too. Say the words CAR DOG and he goes nutso. He loves to travel. I say 'we going camping' and he goes ballistic in wanting to get on the road ahh, just funny how the dogs can be LOL

JO, yea you are right. Could easily be ALL that mess that made me off a bit. Funny thing is pizza toppings were useless ya know. Not like even 'real food' in that it did not satisfy me at all. Kinda like eating alot of junk for no good results kinda thing. Now a ribeye, heck yea I know I ate well LOL

Jo no desire for travelling? You don't have any vacation type trips planned at all right now? Oh boy I am in the big travel mode of my life right now


HI ALL
Happy Memorial Day
hubby working, his 4 days off start tomorrow. Not doing anything today.

So I was stupid yesterday. I made a crockpot chuck roast for hubby. They are bagged different now. Not the regular on plastic tray and wrapped. The store now has them in a thick plastic sealed bag. Well, I open the bag, grab big meat, place in crockpot. I COOKED that black whatever plastic bag strip they put under meat!!! I never flipped it over to see if it was there cause I thought, well this is bagged different in plastic sealed and never thought it would have that plastic strip thing at the bottom. I had to throw it all out. Pi'zzed me off big time. Hubby put in a big spoon to grab a bunch of meat and out came that black plastic strip thing. Almost made me gag
So ham sandwiches it was and I got generous and made him a big pile of french fries too....something I never make hardly anymore. Oh well, cooking mistake on my part

waiting still on pool filter part. not in yet. omg!!! Pool is in dire need of filtering and more chemicals but can't do anything until filter part comes in now. What a royal pain.....in the...you know what. All I can say is 'whatever! at this point. It is what it is! Maybe Tues afternoon it will arrive? Who knows at this point. been forever it seems now.

everyone have a fine day!! have fun!! I don't have to say to any of us not to eat junk cause I know us Warriors will not

Hello warriors,

Happy Memorial Day!

De... welcome back I hope you vacation was spectacular!

Karen.,.. luv the home on wheels. When the kiddos were little that is the only vacations we took. Cheap and we got to do a lot!
I got a nasty sore throat today hurts to talk or swallow!

I be having chicken broth and decaf tea. Beautiful out so still going to
Hit the trail again with the magnum dog. Yepper I do remember our dogs went on every camping adventure they were good travelers. Magnum usually goes every where with me unless it to hot then I can't bring him even for errands not worth it!

Have a marvelous Memorial Day today warriors and take care of yourself!

That's great! How old is your DGS? Has he ever been on a plane?

That's awesome that your furbabies travel well = no added expense or worries since they don't have to be boarded, etc...

Hey did you guys find the perfect "retirement" area whilst you were on your vaca?? You know we wanna hear the dets!

Yeppers I hear ya on the pizza toppings not being satisfying!

They are probably "engineered" that way = need to eat more to really be satisfied = more $$$ spent at the pizza joint!

You gotta remember that I spent most of my life traveling... When I lived in Europe (w my Dad in the AF or my ex in the Army) we spent every school break traveling. I spent 38 years living in Europe. When we were stationed stateside (married to the ex), we'd travel from West Texas to Florida or NM to Florida every single summer...

I just don't have any desire to travel at this time... who knows I might get a wild hair up my butt and GO GO GO!

Jo, what kills me is the old lc times was the PILE of crust I left in my wake. drove me nuts 'paying for that flour crust' and not eating it....of course now I don't care what nasty I throw away. Waitress would come and there would be a pile of crust on a plate! So funny to see their faces when I ate that way on regular low carb.

ya know the more I think about it the more I realize why bother doing all this useless eating? In reality it gets ya now where but stupid in your brain....should I do this or that? this trick or that tip? cut this food or that food! OMG! I love my 99.99% zero carb eating. Yes every now and then I try to put in that side salad when out and about HAHA

True I forgot all that travel in your life. Now you are the homebody that can relax and chill and enjoy your home base!!
You will GO GO GO when you find that ONE thing you want to do, until then you are happy at home! COOL!

yea got screwed on pool. waiting still for part to come in! kill me now LOL

Lots of people still eat that way on regular LC (NOT A '72 Induction at all)... I mean, they eat the toppings off of pizza regularly and leave behind the crust... Imma always suspicious about WHAT the ingredients are... gotta watch out for ourselves eh b/c NO ONE else will!

Edited to add: Pizza sauce has carb-age and most have added sugar. I always remember this from A '72 pg 154:

Quote:
"Unless you're one of these hard-core unfortunates,you can drop weight fast as well as euphorically on this diet...as long as you keep those carbohydrates at arm's length. But if you're off-again-on-again with carbohydrates you'll get nowhere fast. Those who think, "Well it can't do much harm if I go off the diet just for dinner," are due for a nasty surprise on the scales next morning.

It is my observation that a patient who takes in seventy-five grams of carbohydrate (the amount in one wedge of pecan pie) will gain back two to three pounds.

As the Ketostix will tell you by refusing to change color, even a tablespoonful of potato salad can throw off the entire new fat-burning chemical balance you have been working to achieve."
So it's very counterproductive to even eat the sauce b/c not only might it throw you out of ketosis BUT it may cause cravings...

I KNOW exactly what you mean! Hence the reason I rarely if ever eat out... too stressful for me. I'd rather just enjoy my 'real food' knowing EXACTLY what's in it and then if I do go out to 'eat', Imma the designated diet soda or unsweetened ice tea drinker...Yep Imma pretty cheap DATE!

Yeppers, I am a homebody aka hermit for sure these days!

Oh I forgot to mention that we used to do tons of camping too, going to various state parks in West Texas and Southern NM when I was married. It was dirt cheap for a fam of five but we were 'roughing' it in tents and such... was a blast!

aka hermit! yea I can do hermit also! Older I get the less activity of crowds and things I want around me. That is why I love out state parks at the beach. Heck the commercial campgrounds are packed, like 1000 camper sites. The beaches are super crowded like crazy! At the state park sites there is like 110 sites. Spacious. Beach is practically empty! ALL to ourselves!

Oh yes the tents! The good old days. We tented a ton also. Fun when younger but as we got older I wanted off the ground. Last tent vacay was memorable with monster T storm. Hail. Wind like crazy and everything go SO wet. Told hubby it was time to get an rv! LOL

I also find if I have to think about food it drives me nuts and gets me off balance. Like you I am now finding knowing exactly what I am eating helps me so much. I need a plan for the stupd italian places. Family wants those every now and then so I think just sticking with the chicken wings will be my default and no more pizza scrapings. I have restaurants we hit and I got my default lc meal. but italian still screws me up cause I feel like the wings are so sad ya know, like I need more....but in reality I don't! eh I will find ways thru it all, like a friggin' mine field!

HI ALL
nothing much doing.
working on that downed tree IF THE sun decides to shine. omg so much rain.

so this and that and whatever today. kinda like the usual

everyone have a fine day
