I'm Not Dieting - I've Changed My Lifestyle

Mind - Gone

Hello Friends,

Well yesterday I found a dog crate on craigslist that was the right size for Olive and the guy said he only used it 6 months for his puppy and out-grew it and was gonna sell it to me for only $25. But some how his wires got crossed and we never met to get it.

Hubby is working mornings the next 4 days, and somehow after yelling at the dogs they stayed in their beds - UNTIL - he let at 4:30am, then she woke me up crying and scratching. I barely slept because I was nervous and kept watching for her. I took the dogs downstairs to go potty and only 1 went and I got so angry.

Then we all went back up and Peaches was on my bed. She is acting weird and is upset too because she keeps waking up at night from RS moving around. I think I was at the beginning of a nervous breakdown and was crying and yelled at all 3 of them and made them get in their beds. I am so TIRED!

So - breakfast this morning was pancakes; 1/4 c each of almond flour and flaxseed, 1 t of coconut flour, 2eggs, some cinnamon, vanilla, 1/2 t baking powder and unsweetened almond milk - enough to mak it the right consistency. This way the batch makes 6, I ate 3 w/natures hollow on top and have 3 for tomorrow.

Then I went into the living room and started taking the curtains down, then the rods and screws and puttied up the holes. (getting ready for the move)

I look over and RS is chewing up the end of my carpet runner. I LOST IT!! She is little and fast and it was hard catching her, I gave her a little smack and threw her outside. There is was - that nervous breakdown I was talking about. I was hysterical crying and thought I would lose my mind and Hubby called and of course I cryed and yelled at him.

OK - so I calmed down and after a while I fixed my lunch;
I made one of those low carb buns and a turkey patty w/pepper jack cheese and some Kimchee.

Then a lady came over to look at my leather sofa and she wound up buying it and will be back around 5-6 ish to pick it up. That is one more thing I don't have to worry about now.

But at least while I am losing my mind - I somehow manage to eat good. See that is what I was talking about. Separating your emotions from your food. I never knew how to do that before - but food is to nourish us and will not make us feel better if we keep eating it.

I found a new pasta sauce today at SPROUTS;

I am so excited to try this - look it comes in spicy - WOO HOO! You know how much I love spicy. Fro 1/2 c it has 7 carbs, and less than 1 g of sugar. No added sugar - gluten free - and all natural.

As we speak - I just ate 2 squares of 86% dark chocolate and am trying to get my zen on. I don't want to be angry at the dogs - but that is what seems to be happening since RS has got here. I hope I don't go insane -  You never know.

Well have a nice evening and big hugs to you all. Let me know if anyone needs any help and we will all do our best to help you.

My thought for the day:


You are the only one who can use your ability. It is an awesome responsibility.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. That poor little pup. It is not her fault she is where she is. I understand pets are like toddlers, but they can bring such joy. Lil Blue Boo is a blog I follow, she has been battling cancer. Her motto (even before the cancer) is to Choose Joy. Embrace the extra love and affection a dog can give you. Let go of what you cannot control and realize that your husband was put between his daughter and you. I have been in that situation MANY times and it SUCKS!! I will ALWAYS be there for my "new" husband, but he knows that my children come first. He wouldn't have it any other way. Remember, this pup is a special creation that is relying on you for her every need. They really are helpless. And I bet, that when you let go of all your anger, that I am hearing from, you may enjoy this journey. Sorry, I had to speak up, I have not been happy with all of your negative talk towards this little sweet pea. It sounds like she gets your vibe loud and clear.

  2. You know what, I understand what you are saying. The problem is I told him I DON'T want that dog. I never ever wanted to have 3 dogs - EVER!!
    I am never gonna love that dog, all I can ever do is tolerate her. And try to teach her how to behave and be a dog and not a child.
    Yeah I'm pissed and VERY TIRED. :-(

    1. Gotta say I'm with Tina. And while I've read your blog for a while, I don't feel any joy coming across. So now you're thin and you don't emotionally eat, yet you're tired, irritable and angry? Hard times come and I commend your ability to stay on track; I just hope I can do the same while also living in acceptance. This blog is a way for you to get support and unleash your true feelings. In that regard, i do hope it acts as a way for you to then go on with your life a little more at peace. But you're bringing me down. Talk to party and Kay and live in gratitude

    2. "So now you're thin and you don't emotionally eat, yet you're tired, irritable and angry?"

      Are you freakin kidding me? Where the hell is this coming from? Just because she's thin doesn't mean she doesn't have feelings. You sound like a bitter women.

      BTW...my name is Mayra, and I don't hide behind an anonymous post and throw darts.

  3. I understand being tired, moving is exhausting. How about you give up one of your dogs? Sounds crazy right. All I am saying is that the situation is not perfect for anyone, to just make the best of it. And, don't take it out on the dog or your husband...He still would have had to tell his daughter, sorry you need to give up your dog or not follow your dream...each would have been heart breaking. Life is WAY to short to not make the best of bad situations. There are learning experiences to be had..Open up and let go.

    1. "He still would have had to tell his daughter, sorry you need to give up your dog or not follow your dream...each would have been heart breaking."

      No, that's a ridiculous exaggeration. Those would not have been his only options. Rosalie said no when he first asked/told her about the dog. He then SHOULD have told his daughter it's not going to work and that she would need to find someone else to watch the dog, which she could have then done. Rosalie's "no" was not respected and that was WRONG! She should not have been put in this situation to begin with.

  4. Gosh, here I thought Rosalie was asking for support, not a lecture?
    Rosalie, I hope you get some rest soon. I know being tired does not help a bad situation. You are in my thoughts!

  5. I totally get where Rosalie is coming from. Rosalie, if I lived closer, i'd drag you to a doctor for some blood work and hair analysis. I honestly believe the lack of quality sleep is the issue. Truly! I'll bet ya the farm...you are on mercury overload or lack of iron..and that is talking from expert!!!! ,~ melody in oregon ~

  6. Hi Rosalie,
    Hopefully once RS knows that you expect her to sleep in her crate and behave herself, you'll get your quality sleep back. Would it be out of the question to put RS & her crate in a different room to sleep? Mandy and Peaches have earned the right to sleep in the room with you; RS has not. I think RS is still learning what is expected of her in this new environment. You're a good woman for taking this dog in, even though you didn't want to.


    p.s. I hope you have a good weekend! :)

  7. Rosalie, dont listen to people who dont show support. just ignore.people like.that.wish you the best! Ashley :)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
