    Over the weekend I had beers on BOTH Saturday and Sunday, which rarely happens, and we hit Muy Wayne-O for tacos. Plus I ate a burger and fries at the marina yesterday. But I know that today will hit the reset button and tomorrow I'll feel fantastic.

    I hope they have a fajita salad!



    But I could eat tacos with my Margaritas.

    My new favorite Margarita is like a grapefruit crush - only with Tequila. It's very light and refreshing - not overly sweet.

    Here's their menu:

    Click and they'll enlarge a bit.

    No fajita salad on the menu but they're a mom & pop with Mom and Pop there all the time, so I'll bet they'd make you one.

    I'm always up for a good diet fad . Cutting carbs way down works well for me so I'll still do that on normal eating days. Today is my first fasting day and so far so good. I had two HB eggs for breakfast, another one just a few minutes ago, then I'll have a lettuce salad with tuna for dinner later.

    I thought I'd be starving but I'm not. I think eating protein for my calories helps because it stays with you longer. I do feel tired but it's not awful and I don't have anything planned today anyway.

    Anyone else do this?

    Intermittent fasting.... I did it for 5 months and lost a considerable amount of weight (like 40-50 lbs) but did every other day until I hit my goal weight.... after that I went on Medifast and never got so sick of meal bars and shakes like I did on that.... in fact, 3-4 years later the thought makes me wanna

    Menopause hit me like a truck... now that I am feeling so much better the past month or so... and appear to be done with that phase of wanting to be left alone with a remote in one hand watching sci fi movies and a bag of Cheetos in the other... I feel more motivated. I am now a week in on a new fad or rather an old fad because the concept is so 2010 called the 4 hour diet. I don't know why it is called the 4 hour diet but it is low carb/slow carb eating for 6 days and eat whatever you want on the 7th day. YouTube has a bunch of stuff about the 4 hour body/diet.

    I just ordered some kettlebells yesterday and will give that a go also.

    I did notice this past weekend I had energy and that has been very much missed for well over a year.

    I need real food. Shakes and bars get old REAL fast.

    Yesterday I had a Healthy Choice turkey & veggies dinner for breakfast; for lunch I made a can of low cal soup and added broccoli & cauliflower; and before I went to bed I had two eggs with bacon bits. Slightly over 500 calories total.

    I can eat canned soup and frozen dinners twice a week but any more than that and I would raid the nearest KFC and wallow in a bucket of extra-crispy. It's always amazing to me how unappealing canned soup is. When I was a kid I loved Campbell's chicken noodle; now it is teetering on the edge of vile.

    Lentil soup... made some this past weekend and have been snacking on it. I just followed the back of the bag on how to cook it.

    This weekend, I am going to make this..

    I have been using green lentils but want to find the red ones; think this weekend I will venture beyond Food Lion.

    Chorizo and sauerkraut for lunch - under 200 calories.

    I am also going to try and cook lentils with Chorizos because I think the flavors together will be fantastic.

    Giant has red lentils.

    And MUCH more satisfying than some damn shake.

    I have a recipe that is a hybrid of Vrai's and my sister's for a Sausage Lentil Soup. It is AWWWWWESOME!

    Chorizo will be really good with it!

    Sausage Lentil Soup

    1 lb-ish of hot Italian sausage 1 tsp. salt
    1 small onion, chopped 2 tsp. black pepper
    3 cloves of garlic, chopped 1 tsp cayenne
    2 carrots, chopped 2 tsp oregano
    2 stalks of celery, chopped 2 tsp basil
    3 cans of chicken broth 2 tsp thyme
    2 cans of diced tomatoes OR 1 Tbsp parsley
    substitute 1 can Rotel
    2 cups dried lentils

    Squeeze the sausage out of its casing (if it's links), brown and chop in decent sized chunks, but not too big. Drain the fat if there's a lot, otherwise a little fat never hurt anyone. Then dump everything else in the pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.



    Serve this with a really good whole grain bakery bread. (Giant bakery, Safeway bakery, etc)

    When you fasted every other day, did you stick to 500 calories or less on fast days? I may try this for a bit.

    I did Medifast 8 years ago. It really worked but I don't know how I did it and could never do it again. I lost 90ish pounds in 8 months.
