I think it is all in the planning. Which, Obviously, I am not really good at. I could give a million and one excuses as to why I am having a hard time, but, they are all just excuses. Wanna hear some...Here goes (in my best "you want cheese with the whine voice"):
The kids are just so busy, that I don't have time to slow down and keep myself on track...
I'm too tired at the end of the day to make a good meal...
It is just easier to eat what everyone else in the house is eating...
I just don't have the support at home that I need to make this work...
How do you like these so far? I even have a bunch as to why I am not getting exercise. Usually they have to do with road conditions and achy body parts...God Bless Vermont winters!
Have I failed? No, I refuse to think that way... I heard a great quote that says "You have only failed when you quit trying". (my apologies to whom ever wrote/said it, I couldn't remember who it was.) And I am not done trying yet.
My other favorite is by Thomas Edison who said "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." So far I am on way number 4 that won't work....I still have a lot of attempts, right!
So, I am going try to get back to posting every day. I may or not have pictures every day, 'cause sometimes, the headache of getting all my equipment to function is enough to send me to the loony-bin! But I will try to be more regular, and hand out my blog address to more people. Maybe that will help.
Bedtime now (yippee!)
Catch ya on the flip side.

As for my meals yesterday, here is what went down:
Pork Rinds, and a Cheese Stick for breakfast.
Another Cheese Stick for a snack.
Two Nathan's Brand Cheese Hotdogs for lunch, and only 1 carb each!
Then I went a realllllllyyyyy long time before I ate again, and I only ate then because I knew that I has not had enough calories. So I had some low carb Sloppy Joe's that I had made for the kids the other night. Pretty yummy.
Then to finish out the day I had some Romaine Leaves with Ranch Dip. I LOVE dip, and if it didn't have so many carbs, I'd put it on everything!
Today's (2/13/09) Foods
NOTE TO SELF #2 - Taking pictures of Bacon Double Cheese burgers, while driving, is not only a stupid idea, it makes for a terrible picture! Sorry about the picture quality. But this is one of the pictures I of the 2 BDCB I ate this morning.Then, again after several hours, I had to eat again, so I ate some steak with the kids.
I am sure there is more to write, but just now, I am falling asleep, as I am typing. So I'll check everything out int the morning.

First Snack was a cheese and garlic sausage
Lunch was a grinder picked apart and put in a low carb tortilla, then the innards of another.
Another snack was rolled prosciutto and mozzarella cheese
Dinner was Greek Turkey Meatballs.
Friday, I made the mistake of going grocery shopping when I was H-U-N-G-R-Y. I was only slightly hungry when I got there, but by the end, I was ready to chew my own arm off. I went to Wendy's and ate the innards of two Baconators.
While I was at Wendy's I got myself a grilled Chicken Caesar Salad for later.
For dinner I had some baked garlic and cheese sausage.
Here are the pictures of some of Saturdays foods:
