My eating was totally out of control. I finally did what I needed to do: cut out all the carbs. I'm doing the induction phase of the Atkins diet. The first two weeks are REALLY strict, just 20 carbs a day. I'm doing this as a short term cleanse. I've made it through week one and am going strong and have lost 6 pounds so far! I'll stay on this at least another week and after that I'm going to look into "slow carbing", basically just following the glycemic index. I know I've talked about that before, but I'm SERIOUS now!

I forgot how great it feels to low carb. Oh the first couple of days are HELL as you go through carb withdraw (headaches, cravings, fatigue) but now I'm feeling so energetic and NOT HUNGRY between meals. It is good to be free of the cravings.

Today was a beautiful day. Brian mowed the lawn and I finished moving around dirt in the front garden. I planted spinach, cauliflower and broccoli. I got the container that I use for carrots all ready to go and weeded the pea patch. Now I just need seeds.

I've been thinking about putting in a grape vine on the side of the house. I was telling that to my neighbor and told her that I wanted to put in an arch to grow the grapes up and she said that if I could move her arch that I could have it. Woohoo! Now I just have to find out if I can grow red seedless grapes in this state.
