A Healthy Craving!

I had a craving for one of my favorite salads for lunch today. It's so simple...sliced cherry tomatoes, chopped avocado, and feta crumbles. Drizzle on a tiny bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and voila! A flavor explosion full of nutrients!

It's Atkins compliant, but the tomatoes and avocado are a bit on the high-carb side for veggies. So I'll just scale back slightly for the rest of the day.

Progress So Far...I Gained Weight!

I'm pretty discouraged right now. About a week ago I weighted in at 207, and this morning I got on the scale and I was 209. WTF? I know that my cycle and water retention can mess with the numbers a bit, but really? After a week of diligent Atkins, I gained 2 pounds???

I'm going to stick with it, but I need to really think about a plan B. I know my body is changing as I head toward peri-menopause, so maybe low carb won't be the solution as I get older. I don't know. It worked for me in the past, so I'm hoping that will still be the case. But at the same time, I don't want to spin my wheels. We'll see what happens in the coming week.
