I’m down 5 pounds.
Sorry. Couldn’t wait to tell you that news. I started exercising again and am feeling better. I have a lot of anxiety right now, so walking at night while watching tv keeps me more sane.
I am going to take a few days and try to relax. I am my own worst critic and stress easily, so I’m going to play in the kitchen. I’ve had requests from readers for some low-carb versions of favorites, so I’m going to give those a shot. I’ll keep you posted.
The Great Key Lime Pie Incident of 2008
One of the things I try to do is to formulate my own recipes. People are so sweet and send me to different low-carb sites, but I am always afraid I’m going to inadvertently take someone else’s hard work. I don’t like copying folks, so what I make I’ve discovered or worked on independently.
This isn’t always a success. Enter Saturday:
I made a Key Lime Pie. The crust? To die for, my friends! To die for. Wait until you see it!
The key lime innards. Well, let’s just say they never solidified, and tasted too much like the American Lime Council vomited into the pie pan. Still, it looked gorgeous and the meringue was perfect. If you didn’t eat any of it, it was the prettiest thing you’d ever seen.
I will get the key lime pie right, but the mistake led me to some more recipes (aha!), so stay tuned to Examiner.com for those. I am saving some for special occasions, but am very excited to share with you.
I fixed links to Examiner recipes finally
Blogger thought it was smarter than me, and I showed it right good! After wrassling with it, I checked the HTML and realized it was replacing the tilde with gibberish. Gibberish I say!
Now the gibberish is gone, and while I have to edit each and every link, I will not let technology tick me off like that again, for at least 10 minutes.
Since kicking aspartame about a month ago:
My face is no longer numb
My speech is no longer slurred or stuttering
I don’t ‘lose’ words
I don’t lose my temper
My anxiety levels are lower
I don’t fall down/lose my balance
Numbness in extremities has abated
Has asparatame affected you in any of these ways? Do you ingest aspartame and exhibit any of these symptoms? An avowed Diet Coke addict for 24 years, no matter how much I might miss the beverage, the convenience of Diet Jell-o or any other items with that poison will never again be a neurotoxin in my body.
