Cassie! Are you and your loved ones and property all OK following the tornado sirens going off?

I'll catch up with the rest of you later.

Wednesday Report:
Day 3 of 21 Day Mindset Makeover


The past two days I didn't make my fiber goal, which is usually no problem at all. When I thought back I remember that whereas my last snack of the day had been or included a 6g fiber low carb protein shake, the past two nights I had 4 oz. chicken breast which is still great protein for but 0g fiber. So all I need to do is to be sure to get in all my fiber before my last snack. Easy peasy!

Wednesday Report
Day 3 of 21 Day Mindset Makeover

Giving myself a BIDIA (But I Did It Anyway) award because I gave up (after I had already cooked it) my mashed cauliflower and cheese I had planned with last night's dinner in favor of low carb black soybeans when I saw the broc and cauli would put me over my carb limit for the day.
