Tomorrow we make our way back home to Ohio and then it's back to work!(1 comments)See this image largerOur fun has come to an end. Tomorrow we head back to Ohio, life, and reality. But we'll have memories, photos and we left our sweat here๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #mobilechatSee this image largerElsa was not too happy AFTER her bath but she had the stink of a thousand cat smells in her fur so both her and Sabrina got bathe. All is calm now and they both smell wonderful! #mobilechatSee this image largerIt has been a tiring return to school/work. My baby didn't even make it to her bed before falling asleep! Tomorrow is a big day for us as we start our Daniel Fast that will last for 3 weeks! I know every food NOT on this fast will be calling out to me....ESPECIALLY ice cream! But as my pastor asked, " Do you love ice cream more than you love Jesus?" Now that's food for thought! #mobilechatSee this image largerSee this image largerDouble trouble here. One of them knocked over a cup of water.....I have a sneaky suspicion that Sabrina (on couch) is the culprit! So far so good on this Daniel Fast....however it's still morning....I'll probably be crying by the end of the day๐Ÿ™„See this image largerSoooo I'm doing this Daniel Fast and one of the things we're allowed to have is figs. I tried one for the first time WITHOUT bread wrapped around it (fig newton) and it tasted exactly like a Fig Newton! As a matter of fact the bread does absolutely nothing to enhance the fig!! I ate 6 of them in the car!! Now I have to put them up before they're all gone! Today is not over yet......try something new! #mobilechat #foodfeatsSee this image largerThis is cauliflower/sweet potato rice...I added raisins....it is really good and I was pleasantly surprised! It taste like broccoli (without raisins), go figure! #mobilechatSee this image largerMade my own guacamole for the 1st time today because all of the premade ones add salt! I added green/red bell peppers to mine as well as the onions, cilantro & lime juice. Not too shabby. #mobilechat #recipesSee this image largerSince I can't add any seasoning that contains salt, I've been splicing foods together. Today's lunch is Minute brown rice with Simple Truth diced sweet potatoes and of course raisins! #mobilechat #recipesSee this image largerI think Sabrina is dreaming about being Super Cat๐Ÿ˜บ #mobilechatSee this image largerFelt like having oatmeal with raisins for dinner tonight, made with almond milk, along with sliced baked sweet potatoes and a mixed fruit smoothie also made with almond milk. 6th day on Daniel Fast and still meat free!! #mobilechat #donegood #healthyeatsSee this image largerIf I was doing the lowcarb lifestyle....I STILL would have been all over this ice cream deal! They never have deals like this & I really really love ice cream! But I've been on this Daniel Fast and by the power of God, my stomach didn't growl in anticipation over something I knew I couldn't eat so I just WALKED AWAY! So very proud of myself. #donegood #mobilchat #justsaidnoSee this image largerSabrina snores, loudly, & she keeps moving closer and closer to me. If she scoots anymore she'll be on the floor! #mobilechatSee this image largerAlright guys....has anyone had these chips? Apparently they sell them at WalMart. How do they taste?? #lowcarb #ketoSee this image largerIt is extremely cold outside in Ohio. No outdoor activities for me...at least for the next 2 days. Stay warm everyone! #mobilechatSee this image largerJust now trying Quest product. This is a 1.1 ounce bag. A hint of BBQ taste (which is good) but it also taste like they baked the heck out of it (if it were an actual potato)....overall I would get it again. #mobilechat #lowcarbSee this image largerThis afternoon I look a hot mess....but that's ok because I woke up late since I didn't go to church. I didn't go to church because my car battery was dying. This morning I CHANGED my car battery!!!! I had my daughter record it so I can put it on youtube, so the ladies of the world know that they too can work on their cars and save a little money!!!! GIRL POWER๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช #mobilechat #motivateSee this image largerEnjoying this nice chicken & wildrice soup on a late lunch....16 net carbs for the whole thing (15.5 oz) and very filling! #lowcarbSee this image largerI can always count on Sabrina being in 1 of 4 places.....on the couch when I walk thru the door, waiting outside of the bathroom for me, with her head in her food bowl, and sitting on the stairs! She's the Guardian Of The Stairs! #mobilechatSee this image largerWas almost at my 1200 calorie goal today.....eating a light dinner tonight....the old standby classic tuna salad. Was eating something yesterday that I ADDED SUGAR TO, and I ended up throwing it away 'cuz I had just gotten over a sugar withdrawal headache! Don't know what I was thinking! Tonight I will have the Kaopectate ready because tuna gives me heartburn! #lowcarbSee this image largerSo my day was already busy.....just got busier because I had to take my baby girl (12) to the hospital.....she woke up with severe upper thigh pain. Hope it's not too serious. Either surgery or crutches.....hoping for the latter. #mobilechatSee this image largerSo Dee only needed crutches.....thank God for that. And I think I sleep as wild as Sabrina does. Here's to the start of a new week!๐Ÿ˜‰See this image largerIt's been raining hard off and on all day....finally got to see a rainbow.....was worth the wait!! #mobilechatSee this image largerYou know babies and cats have alot in common.....they mostly eat, poop & sleep! Boy are they living the life!!!๐Ÿ˜ #mobilechatSee this image largerSo i don't know if did this right and i also don't want to break any Sparkpeople rules....but since i don't have any social media platforms I'm reaching out this way.....my daughter is trying to go on a missions trip for church & we need to raise $300. If anyone could donate to this (hopefully this link worksโฌ‡๏ธ) we would greatly appreciate it. Again I am not trying to step on anyone's toes or offend anyone. https://www.gofundme.com/1lvos9ll

Well I'm still sick, my singing voice for church today was (to me) an abomination, because I know how strong my voice is sans cold. Ate 1 meal yesterday and it didn't agree with me, nothing eaten yet today BUT there was a cute furry surprise waddling in front of me when I was at the store. 2 ducklings who lost their mama.....hopefully they've found her again!! #mobilechatSee this image largerWork has been very tense and my continued employment is debatable....this week has been a blur so much so that I didn't realize it is my mom's birthday.
