Sugar and carbs for breakfast? yuck)
2. Yeast from Antibiotics
3. Lack of sleep
I say that mostly my diet journey is all in my head, but that is when I am battling the sugar demons. Sometimes, however, the battle is just due to circumstances. All of the above stressors are a result of a recent surgery.
Lots of Water
Yeast Cleanse diet (no vinegar products or wine)
Rest as much as possible
Organization - be prepared
I'm already feeling better and undoing the damage!
I had a very fun and eventful weekend!
I spent a couple of days with a good friend and enjoyed watching her care for and give attention to her neighbors. I think we almost solved the problems of the world. She is a great cook and really knows her stuff -- all things low carb! Carb Tripper rocks!
Ground beef, Shrimp, Bacon, Roasted Peppers,
Onions, and Cauliflower -- VERY good, especially
with a shooter of butter! Great job, Chef Anne!
My good friend Carb Tripper (Anne) and one of her sweet neighbors.
AND finally -- The wedding!
Then I attended a fabulous wedding of my great niece with an awesome reception with Cambodian flavors. I was blessed to ride with my fab sister and brother-in-law which always makes for good company.
Groom's Cake and Bridal Cake (notice the brake pads in the wheels!! They did not cut the groom's cake -- too pretty!)

As a result of my weekend however I did gain a few pounds. It was a combination of that awesome food at the reception and the lack of sleep. hahaha BUT the good news is, I know how to fix that. A couple of days of very low - to zero carb meals, combined with water, bulletproof coffee, and rest and I will be back to square one in no time. -- amended -- I AM back to square one, less 1. :D
It's all down hill... or rather "down scale" from here.
