    Day 1...I think it went O.K.

    Coffee, slice of cheese
    Scrambled egg, butter, 1 sausage
    Beef and cabbage stir
    And again for dinner
    Another slice of cheese
    Real cream in my coffee...yay

    So this afternoon I was rushing around trying to get myself and my 11 month old out the door for a walk, and then WHACK!!!! I stubbed my toe harder than I ever have before. I think I heard bones crunch. Needless to say we didn't go for our walk.

    I did manage to drink nearly 3 Ltr of water.

    Ouch! Stubbed toes are so painful! Hope you didn't break anything! Did you check the carb content in the sausage - some contain lots of cereal ... Nice menu though! :)

    Morning Jenni, double ouch on the toe!

    Ditto to what Di says, watch the sausages - there's a list of low carb ones in the Low Carb Shopping sticky :) German sausage is usually carb free.

    Good mornin' Di and Susie...I dont know what the carb count of the sausage was. It was polish sausage from a deli counter. I had a small bit off of a long link. No more guessing though...I will stick to reading lables.

    This morning before I even got out of bed, I have been craving sugar. Ive been trying to wash away the craving by drinking water... Something tells me today is gonna be difficult

    Hi Jim,
    From the info i found on google, I tend to agree with you about the polish sausage.
    It was quite nice and I wouldn't mind having it again. I'd like to know the actual carb count though. I have no idea how I'd find out. I got it out of an authentic polish grocers, the girl in the shop doesn't speak English. When I go up to the counter we communicate mostly through sign language. Ah well...
    My toe hurts, it's bruised, but it's getting better. Thanks

    Hi Jenni. Ouch on the toe. I did that to my little toe the day I moved house years ago! It was def broken but they don't do anything at the hospital for it so I never even went.
    Ignore the sugar craving if you can.

    I cannot wait for this day to be done with! I thought I was on top of things... I dont know if its the diet messin with my head, or if its the fact that ive only gotten 4 hours of sleep over the last two days.

    dinner......FAIL
    nice pork roast, seasoned it up last night ready for the crock pot today for an early dinner.
    took it out this morning, put it in the crock pot, turned crock pot on and didnt give it another thought.

    Forgot to plug the crock pot in. :(

    Teething baby has her days and nights mixed up and i simply cannot nap during the day.

    Looks like ill have an omlette for dinner...all in all today wasnt that bad as far as food.

    Coffee/cream-I love this!
    Finally finished off my beef and cabbage stir fry.
    celery sticks with a bit of cream cheese.

    Thanks everyone for your encouragement...I honestly think that if I wasnt using this forum I would've given up yesterday.

    I'm usually not such a grump.....

    Jenni you need much more leafy greens hun :)

    Check Jim's sticky, "So you're thinking of doing Atkins". There are two lists on the first page of this, the A list where you can have 2-3 mugs of anything on that first list. if you have 2, you can THEN (and only then) have a mug of the veg in the second list.

    You will see much better results if you follow the diet to the letter - that's why we go on about Clean and Green.

    Day 5
    Went to Tesco today, stocked up on veg :)
    I don't drive, and with the broken toe I wasn't able to get to the shops. Had to wait for h to make it back home. He was away with work. I was making that beef and cabbage stir fry last because it was the only bit of veg in the house...lol clean and green now!!

    B. Bacon, scrambled eggs, butter, bit of tomato
    L. Ham, cheese, Mayo
    S. Salad, olive oil
    D. Chicken breast, broccoli, cheddar cheese, sour cream
    Coffee, cream

    Water water water :)
    looking forward to weigh in. I feel like I've lost. It's torture staying away from the scale!

    I am loving this diet....
    B. 4 slices bacon, 2 scrambled eggs, small side of tomatoes
    S. Slice of cheese, oopsie roll
    L. Salad, dressing, sliced meat
    D. Asparagus, Parma ham, roast chicken
    Coffee/cream
    Lots and lots of water.

    I'm in the mood for something sweet. I'm not sure what sort of legal snack to have...I am nervous that if I start with "Atkins induction friendly desserts" that I will over do them. Hmmm.
    Sweets are my downfall.
