Maryh,

I usually can only find Dubliner cheese at Costco - though I haven't been during this Covid crisis, I may venture in sometime soon. It is hard to imagine how difficult it is to get certain products, and Costco is a source for me when I want to get items in quantity.

You sound well - glad to hear it!!

My knees simply can't handle this weight along with the arthritis and bone spurs, I know it, I know what to do. I clearly have an eating disorder and need to deal with it much more diligently, and need to be permanently successful with that

Today is, again, Day 1

Awwh i hear ya Patricia.
I do too more or less. Work is a great distraction. Have to go abstinent with some things as no matter how long I've stayed away from them, no matter how 'on plan' i am...once my brain registers them, its like throwing gasoline on a fire. And its back to square one. No lessons learned..no healing...nothing.

I take back what i said above..i realised i'm actually not always below 10g Carb in my meals/snacks. Zero hard or fast rules works better some times.
Anyway i'll muddle on-wards...I'm good for...now. A bit dithered here.


Bone spurs sound tremendously painful. Think you are right to just go with the click and collect service. I'm trying to do the same here. Don't want to take any unnecessary risks...actually i declined going into the shop yesterday as there were too many people about. Avoided a lot of temptation.
With you in spirit anyway Patricia...Day 1 all the way.

Happy to be past day 1 and working on a good finish to week 1. I have good plan in place for Mother's Day - always an introspective day here...not having been able to have children, and then the loss of my mom two years ago, and the memories of good and bad, dh is very sensitive to this day, which I very much appreciate. I try to be sensitive when it is Father's day.

It is always good to hear from you, post here or in my journal to keep me up to date with how you are doing.

I am so grateful for all the recipes I've collected, saved and created over the years that work so well for calp - they are very helpful to me as I try to solve this lose and then maintain puzzle.

Thought I would share this recipe a friend sent me, it is cm or darned close making it a wonderful salad/veggie option for RM.

Asparagus Egg Salad (by Skinnytaste)
serves 1

1-2/3 cups trimmed, chopped asparagus
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (*I have been able to find sugar-free Dijon)
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
pinch salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
2 slices cooked and crumbled bacon (*be sure to use sugar-free bacon)
1 hard-boiled egg, peeled and sliced.

Boil the asparagus until al dente.
Drain and run under cold water, then set aside.
Combine mustard, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, tarragon, arrange your asparagus on a plate, top with the crumbled bacon, and sliced hard boiled egg, drizzle with the mustard dressing and enjoy.

My gosh that sounds delicious Patricia, especially the dressing.
Will definitely try it, and again what a co-incidence...egg salads have been a regular feature in my lunches these days.

I will probably need to substitute the asparagus for green beans as i cannot digest asparagus well at all.
I'm trying to be more mindful to focus on what i can actually have and enjoy instead of focusing on what i cannot have.

A busy work week ahead for me, once its over though i will have to try harder to adhere to the CAD guidelines if possible. I know trouble will loom on the horizon otherwise...
Have to meal prep now, soup, porridge bread, and a red Thai curry i can also bring to work with rice.
The soups and smoothies are now a regular feature which is helping me feel healthier. It's like a military operation at times...shopping, planning, preparing, eating the right things at the right times.


Hope the meals and week ahead is a good, healthy and happy one for us all!

Mary, I think green beans would be a delicious substitute in that recipe

Memorial Day menu for dh and I:

breakfast will be smoked salmon (a cm, sugar-free brand) with scrambled eggs and lemon cream (made with clean sour cream, bit of lemon zest and juice, and thyme), coffee with half and half.

snacks (in lieu of lunch) will be a cm tonnato sauce, and a dip dh asked me to make up of simply diced Kalamata olives with a clean cream cheese, raw veggies such as broccoli, cucumber, celery and cauliflower.

rm will be my cm coleslaw, asparagus egg salad, grilled burgers for him, a grilled rib steak for me, I may add a little leftover rice from a recent rm for me, small piece of blackberry buckle with vanilla unsweetened whipped cream. Coffee with half and half.
