You CAN live with it...

Hello All,

It seems like we are on pins and needles over here, just waiting-waiting for the house. Its a bit nerve wrecking. Yesterday afternoon I went for my afternoon walk with my furry girls and decided to go outside the gate. I don't do that too much anymore but it was such a beautiful day I just really wanted to look around.

I get around the corner and here comes this big dog right at us. I hate it when people around HERE don't secure their pets and they get out. It looked like a German Shepard but blonde. I don't know what kind of dog that is.  This guy was sitting out in front of his house and I said DUDE can you get that dog??? He said its nice. My heart fell to my tummy and I said please help!! You never know how strange dogs will act to each other. It was still coming. I kept yelling at him and finally he got off his ass and helped and got the dog.

So here I was upset on the rest of the walk. I get a couple of blocks away and a bus stops to let some people out and the driver says something to us as we walked by. She liked my dogs and was nice to us. It made me realize that I was just being dramatic and not everyone is out to ruin my day.

For any NEW people on here, Welcome... I know some of you might think after seeing what I eat that you CAN'T do this... That is not a realistic way of eating in the real world?

I thought that at first too, but after just doing it and slowly seeing the weight come off, you start to realize that it IS DOABLE. I thought I could never go without those fruits and other foods forever that we cannot eat on the BFC with too much sugar... But as I started seeing myself just melt away I realized that there were sacrifices (I thought at the time) that I COULD live with.

Now I know I am just eating healthy and need and want to continue eating this way to stay looking the way I do now as opposed to the other person I used to be.

My breakfast yesterday was some more of those pumpkin-protein pancakes, so I made them into 4 small ones instead of 2 big ones. Still the same only looks like much less. Ha-ha
 My lunch was the rest of the veggies from the night before with 2 homemade corn tortillas with chia seeds inside.
 My snack was some kale chips I made. I actually took the bowl with me in the car and went to look at 2 houses that popped up on the MLS. Didn't like them though.
 My dinner was a spinach salad and a few wings and 2 small protein bites for desert.

Thanks for listening and have a wonderful day.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

My thought for the day:

So what ever is going on right now, Good or Bad, close your eyes - take a deep breath and then look again, its probably not as bad as you think....Take the time to smile and be nice to someone cause you never know what impact that will have on them that day...

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)

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.
