Howdy Journal & Friends,
Thought I'd peek in and give a short update. I am thoroughly enjoying my Blogcation! I've had ups and downs, and even some overeating days. Grrrr...
But even that has been an eye-opener, which can be useful. Because I was surprised to find an attitude well up that said "Oh goodie, no one will know, so I can eat whatever I want"! Aarrgh... Yeah, I did some of that. On plan food, for sure, but just way too much of it!!
But... I will never quit. I am still determined to continue with the Carb Conquest Cruise.
I decided to shake things up, and sent for some high quality whey protein powder. Just temporarily, I am experimenting with 2 protein shakes a day, 1 meal and 1 snack. When my supply is gone, I'll continue controlled carbs as normal.
It's been an embarrassing experiment! Why?? Because it clearly brought out the I WANT TO EAT side of me! The side that pouts and whines when it doesn't get it's way. Wow, such habits we get into, without even realizing it. So, this experiment has been a good thing, forcing me to face myself, and the areas that still need work.
And just for fun, I thought I'd post pics of my first finished project. See... Joey, my dear sweet mischievous 7 1/2 month old Miniature Schnauzer, chewed on my favorite genuine Ugg slippers... Oh Nooooooo!!! I luv me my Ugg slippers. :-(

So... I decided to rescue them. I hand sewed up the gashes with colored thread, then painted a design around the stitching. They turned out cute, and I actually like them better now than before, LOL!
There's a little more to talk about... like I think I need to go back to my roots, and do what I did in the beginning... but I'll save that for another post. For now I'm off to work on more projects.

Enjoy the Journey,
