Holy Crap! I know I allowed myself to cheat yesterday but man I didn't think I went that crazy.  I did have those soupy tacos yesterday and I ate the last order for dinner.  I did enjoy some fudge covered birthday cake Oreos but I could only get 2 down, they were sooo sweet!!  I then had some double stuffed Oreos and I could only get 3 down.  I remember there was a time when I could eat the whole package in one sitting.  It's amazing how I was basically disgusted with myself after shoving the third one down my throat.  Since I was allowing myself to cheat I also indulged in a peanut butter and banana sandwich.  I only used half a banana and whole wheat bread.  I snacked on a few Cheetos but could only manage about a handful.  While watching Mermaids A Body Found on Animal Planet, I ate a snack bag of corn nuts.  It may not sound like a lot to some but I know it was all pure crap I ate yesterday.  So today, I'm grateful I did it because it just serves as a reminder of how I used to eat and that's why my weight was where it was before beginning the protocol.  I'm really excited because next week I go back into P2.  It's seems strange that I would be happy to be going back to the restricted part of the protocol but I really like only having to eat limited items and on a schedule.  Now that I'm free to enjoy what I want (no starch, no sugar), I seem to have a hard time enjoying it.  Doesn't that seem strange?  I have been able to enjoy pork chops, fatty chuck steaks, chicken thighs, cheese and kefir but I'm ready to go back to P2.

This morning I forgot to put on my lucky bracelet and I did have a rough morning.  I went to Lowe's Home Improvement to purchase some Bounty paper towels.  They had the 6-pack for $4.88.  As I entered the store they had a 12 pack of them for $10.00.  I have $1 off coupons for 6 pack or larger.   I had to break out my calculator to figure out which was the better buy.  I bought 3 of the 6-pack and I used 3 coupons so I paid $11.64 and got 18 rolls versus 12 for $9.  So I saved a little bit of money there.  I then went to Wal*Mart since its next door to them and purchased some cream cheese and some more Venus razors because I found 2 more coupons.  I debated about going to Kmart to get more paper towels and I kept telling myself no, you have enough, but I still got on the expressway to Kmart.  Kmart has the Brawny paper towels 6-pack for $5.97 and I had $1 off coupons as well.  I got 3 packs and I found the Mardi Gras napkins for $1.99, I had 55 cents off coupons for these.  I also had $1 off the M&M's package.  Since I didn't read the coupons correctly turns out the Brawny coupons was $1 off 2, 2 roll or larger.  Duh!!  Anyway, as I was checking out, the register went ahead and doubled my coupons, yeah baby!!  I didn't think it would because it was only for $25 or more in health, beauty and grocery merchandise.  I don't think anything that I bought was any of those items but hey, I'm not gonna argue with the register.  So I may go back tomorrow and get 4 more packs of the paper towels but I'll need to figure out what else to get to get me over the $25 limit to qualify for the double coupons. Oh what, I think I have an Internet coupon somewhere for them paper towels and that will get me over the limit if I buy 6.  Then I can get $1 off each package after doubling.  After I left there, I went to another Dollar General looking for the 90 oz. Palmolive they're advertising for $4, since I have coupons for it, but I have been unsuccessful finding it and this store was no different.  They all have the 90oz. Ajax but my coupons expired for those.  I finally just came home.  I really need to color my hair.

Now I sit here and debate what to have for dinner.  I have ground beef defrosted so I can make a hamburger patty and cook my pork chops for my BAB for tomorrow morning.  Dr. Oz is on the cover of First magazine and he toting how flaxseed is something essential we should all incorporate into our daily diets.  I know that but I get tired of making smoothies everyday.  As I read the suggested menus, he had a recipe for meatballs.  It dawned on me that every time I make my hamburger patties, I should be using my ground flaxseed as a binder, duh!!  So guess what I'll be finally doing to my hamburger patty tonight. Now I'm off to watch the Hoarder Buried Alive marathon and get ready for the new Extreme Couponing episode tonight!!
