Low carb livin'

So, this is a little different than my regular posts. Me, along with most of the free world, decided to go on a diet at the New Year. Technically, mine didn't start until January 5th, becuase there was no way I was going on a diet while I was still in New Orleans.

Well, its been a week. I'm trying to drink lots more water and I'm limiting myself to one diet soda a day. (Diet Cherry Coke is my poison.)

Here is my attempt to hold myself a little accountable for following this diet. I've decided to try low-carb. I have no idea if I'm following Atkins, Sugar Busters, South Beach or whatever. But for the time being, I've given up my beloved Schmaltz's bagels, sugar, flour - the really nasty carbs. So far, so good. Three pounds down the first week.

I've been eating a meat and vegetable for dinner, a salad or some turkey for lunch, and an egg white or egg beaters mini-omelet for breakfast. I've been snacking on raw pecans, a little bit of cheese, turkey and green veggies.

I'll be posting some low carb recipes as I go along. My goal is to lose 10 pounds by the time I go to Mardi Gras at the end of February - I guess so I can gain it all back while I'm in New Orleans -LOL. Here we go!
