R3P2D13 Enjoying the Short Ride

Round 3 Week 2 of Phase 2 Day 13
LIW: 168.2
Yesterday's Wt: 172.2
Today's Wt: 173.8
1.6 lbs GAIN overnight

Ha, gained the same overnight. Well, I really enjoyed yesterday's meal as well. Started out with an omelet again using the same veggies and adding in some bologna and a hot dog wiener cut up. Don't ask me why, but I was craving it. Lunch was a bunless cheeseburger with Jack cheese, sauteed mushrooms and onions, a bit of avocado and some steamed cauliflower. For dinner was the other half of that cheeseburger that I didn't finish and added some sauteed eggplant. I forgot to throw some on the grill while I was cooking the burgers. I did indulge in a small piece of chocolate dipped in some peanut butter, but the burger was much better!! Didn't do much yesterday except cook. Might as well enjoy it because tomorrow its back to P2 food. My poor planning has made me decide to start counting the injections beginning as it was the first. Some of HCG buddies have agreed as well. I don't regret the decision I made but its for the best. I haven't decided how long this round will be for so I'll just go with the flow. That reminds me, Aunt Flo should be dropping by here soon as well.

I have been reading Dr. Atkin's book to refresh my memory and looking at his Induction diet, it looks very similar to Dr. Simeon's Phase 2 of allowable foods. I feel that since Dr. A's book is more recent that maybe his research of allowable foods would be P2 friendly. This is only my theory but something I would like to experiment with since Dr. A. founded his study here in America and not in Italy. I will be reading more today and give more insight tomorrow.

Does anyone know if you can freeze cream cheese? I was cleaning out the fridge and came across a 6 pack of cream cheese that I bought that is good until March but I don't want to keep in the fridge that long and let it spoil, so I would like to freeze it. Wish I had realized I had it so I could have enjoyed it during P3 but I turned a blind eye. Trust me it has been staring at me in the face every time I open the fridge but I completely ignored it. It wasn't even in the back of the fridge, it was right there in front saying hello every time I opened it. Strange that just yesterday I realized it was there.

Well, I'm sure I have more to say but right now I have something troubling me and I don't know how to handle the situation. It has been a thorn in my side for the past 3 or 4 years and it is rearing its ugly head again.

  • Biz, it not just you, I was thinking exactly the same thing since I was only on injection 7, but it helped me get closer to LIW at least.
  • Jen, yes, I hope it comes off the first couple of days but I'm not sweating it. Hey, I'm not really sure what you meant by your last line, sorry!
  • Ewewho, relaxing yes, away from the daily grind, no phones, no one yelling at me, etc.!! Yes, that's why I wanted the tote bag as well, I now have 2 and want to use them when I go grocery shopping. It takes me a while to get used to the idea but I like not having all those plastic bags laying around the house and I feel bad when I throw them away. My cats think they are some exotic treat cause I always catch one cat chewing on one. Sometimes I don't even know where they find them cause I have them tucked away. I try to put them in my car the night before but I usually forget because I get sidetracked very easily. Believe me, as much as I go to Wal*Mart, I always, always forget to take the bags to their recycling bins. The cashiers have a hard time with the totes too, they have their routine of shoving everything in those plastic bags. I usually go through self checkout anyway!!

Hey Mary Lou! When I saw you freezing cheese I looked online to see what kinds of cheeses you can freeze and it did say no soft cheeses (it said it would change the texture)!

OMG, my mom used to fix hot dogs and eggs and we loved it-that was a blast from the past!

Sorry, you didn't get my little joke from yesterday! In a round about way I was just saying you're only as old as the men you are with or "feel!" Hey there's no problem having a 25 yr. old "boy toy" around...just kidding!

Oh, I hate having "issues" with stuff...ahh, life! And as soon as you think you are "over it" nope, it has a way of challenging you again just to see if you really dealt with it the last time it reared it's ugly head! We're here for you girlfriend!

Wow Mary, a lot can happen in a couple of days! Sorry I missed making the blog rounds. And YIKES, you're going the wrong direction girlfriend. Hope getting back on and started again helps get it off quickly. But I also hope your head is in the right place to make it work. You know you can do it if you stick to plan though, so here's hoping you can focus on the task at hand and get back on protocol! Welcome back...
