Just a little hiccup

So  remember how I said I was going to hit the grocery? Hit it I did. And got declined. 😂  Called hubby to bring me our BOA card since he had mine and there was money on that. Realized I used the wrong card. Tried again. Declined. 😯 I was like oh hell no! I tried to call the company and realized I never activated the new card. 😑 I had my card spoofed in July and they sent a new one. There was a big communication lag and things were not processed in a timely manner and when they bumped the first report they took a 2nd report. So I got a new, new card. 🙄

Lots of starter stuff to make me happy and well satisfied. I just need to cook my stuffs up for prep. My job is closed tomorrow so I shall be doing so then.

Day 1 and I feel good.

Had my 15 bean soup for lunch
2 brats with mustard for dinner.

Simple, yet I am satisfied. Not craving for sweet or really even a want at all. This is GREAT!!! This tells me that I made a good decision to start when I have since I am ready.

Got some stuff at work caught up so that I dont start 2019 feeling behind. Yaassss!

I have plans. I just need to WRITE THEM DOWN and do them.

I am getting ready to start my spur of the moment night routine I am making up as I go. I plan on being settled by 10:30 with a tiny tot snuggled up to me to sleep. That is how I plan on bringing in 2019.

Adding a picture of my kiddos in their Christmas Eve jammies so you can see how they have grown. Before I finished the pictures stinker girl literally pushed her 13 yr old brother off the chair with her head.  She. Is. The. Boss.

No picture. The app keeps crashing. I will add one tomorrow.

Dirty, Lazy, Keto

I now have a title for my "version" of dieting. I low carb but do what I want.🤷‍♀️

In the past I have called it wannabe keto. Well, before keto was a thing I just called it my hybrid low carb, no sugar thing.

Because I am odd I always like to start on weird days. I am starting tomorrow December 31st, 2018. Last time I started on the 31st I was the most successful so let's see if I can follow in my own footsteps. 

Money is tight so I will have to stock up on the less expensive foods for now. I know I have lots of protein in the freezer though because I am a food hoarder. I dont have the slightest idea why because I have never not had food in my life. Well, I lie, there was a short time before I moved in with my mother from my dad's but I was like 6 and didn't know any better. I just remember box mac n cheese, my dad's hidden swiss rolls, and mayo sammys. My brother was 12 so I am sure he would remember better. I'm afraid to ask though, as he has a hatred for our father. 

I dont have a start weight yet. I hope I remember to do so in the morning. I already have lunch packed up. Not low carb, but low sugar at least. 15 bean soup made with the ham bone from Christmas dinner we were sent home with. I gotta go with the cost part of lunch over the low carb for tomorrow. I get off at 4pm and will hit grocery with whatever is available on a credit card. Yup, life is that tight right now. My goal will be to keep the bill low. 😬

I have lots of wants for the new year. Lower our debt will be one. Hubby only works 9 months out of the year and only started working last year. He was in school for a while which you can read about like 2 posts back. So 7 yrs of 1 income and now a low income is hard. I also want to simplify my house. I have a lot of stuff and I want to purge, purge, purge. I just need to omph to do so.
