I don't know if I've mentioned it, but my sis has been following low-carb/paleo/whatever and has dropped about 70 pounds and looks fantastic. She has struggled with her weight her entire life, having dropped a hundred pounds about 15 years ago, but gained it back and then some. She has requested something on the menu that she can eat. I'm going to try to eat in solidarity with her (bless her heart, she does all the cooking AND runs her own little baking business on the side - I am NOT that strong) so I'm adding a few appropriate choices for us amongst the carbfest that is the Holiday Season around these parts.
Other than that, there's nothing much shaking around here. I'm taking Talia to dinner tonight to celebrate her birthday (belatedly). I picked up several darling little pen and ink drawings in VN of a group of women riding bicycles and I had one framed for her (and one for me). They turned out really cute. She has a gallery wall in her home, so I think she will appreciate it. I may have another one framed so that I have one at home and one in the office.
Three stars for me yesterday. I practiced good self-care and generally behaved myself all day long :-).
For those of you who low-carb/paleo/clean-eat, what's your favorite desserty thing that fits into your eating program?
Random trip tidbit: I finished the paperback I was reading while on the beach in Hoi An. I went to the resort library and there I found (and read) The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--a Love Story. Just about the last book I'd expect to find there.
Trip photos - completed.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. If at first you don't succeed, keep swimming.
