Back To Low Carb Reality

So my week of debauchery is over and it's time to get back on the low carb wagon and stay there, hopefully enjoying the ride and scenery. I really had a great time during my vacation but the fact that I am deathly afraid of my scale tells me I overdid it. It wasn't like the trip to Singapore, no. Since food was cheap and in abundance, I went a tad overboard with the sweets and dessert and frozen yogurt at Red Mango.

The first day back on plan was difficult. In fact, I wasn't 100% on plan. I had some oatmeal cookies that my hubby bought. I know. I am so bad! But I couldn't resist it. So I had one. Then two. Then three. It turned out to be six by the end of the day. I deserve a spanking, I know this.

Day two was much better since I started adding flax back to my diet again. I love flax and flax muffins and it keeps me "regular" but darn it... I don't like the "by product", neither does my husband. I don't blame him. Flax "by products" are the worst I've ever experienced in my life. Seriously. It could win national competitions and probably power a stove. But I will still do it because it really helps with my digestion... Maybe once my body is used to it again the "by product" will decrease and won't be as offensive. I also felt terribly bloaty and had tummy issues but that's just my body getting used to low carb.

It is now Day Three and I'm 100% back on the saddle, my friends! Can I get a woohoo? A what-what? Perhaps a small but well-deserved 'yay'? Pretty please? I'm just kidding. Day Three wasn't as difficult, of course. I take it one day at a time and it really does get better.

In other news, I finally received the package from my LCF buddy Melissa of "Less Of Mimi". More than a month ago I asked her if she could buy and ship golden flax seeds and stevia powder for me. She was so kind and generous that she went to buy it that same day and ship it, too! When the package finally arrived, the envelop was torn in places and taped in some. Sheesh! Our postal service is really crappy! But thank goodness the flax seeds and stevia made it here in their packaging. So double yay for me. Thanks again Melissa! You are such a sweetie... sugar free, of course, but a sweetie nonetheless!

LOL. I don't recall having that particular side effect, but I can't eat the quantity of flax you've been having. A little goes a long way. :)
Glad you're getting back on track. Feels great, doesn't it. :)
I am so glad that everything got there.. Everything got there, right? Three bags of flax and two containers of stevia? I guess next time I'll have to ship it a month before you need it - and I'll put it in a steel box. ROFL!
