Beeyoutiful and Day 73 of Atkins

My Beeyoutiful order came in today. I am all out of my Laveshmint Hydrating Toner and Cream. I love those products. I feel so spoiled when using the Laveshmint Cream. I also purchased Soothe It! aftershave for my hubby.
One of the many reasons why I love Beeyoutiful products is some of them have multiple uses. The Soothe It! aftershave can be used as a deodorant. I didn’t realize that when I bought it otherwise I’d have stocked up. They are on sale right now for $8.90.

I wanted to update on my Atkins diet. Today is Day 73. I lost 4lbs last week. That was really exciting. Although I gained 1lb back. Hopefully it will go away. I have been super strict today with not consuming too many sweetener stuff and cream.  I admit yesterday I went over on both.

Today I had the most wonderful tasting lunch. I sautéed 1 cup of mushrooms in 1TBL butter. Measured 4oz of hamburger meat and cooked it. Added 1oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese and had 1 medium avocado. Sprinkled sea salt and pepper and it was so good. It was 8.7 net carbs.
Most of the carbs were counted toward my foundation veggies.
This morning for breakfast I had my favorite Low Carb Pancakes. The only thing I don’t like about the pancakes is it’s hard to eat a veggie. I usually eat an avocado when I’m done with the pancakes but today I didn’t feel like it.

For a snack today I had a cucumber. It was so good. I was going to have it with Blue Cheese dressing but it was so good plain that I opted to skip the dressing.

Tonight I’ll probably have another hamburger patty with mushrooms again. It seems when I really like something I eat it over and over until it gets old.

I’m still amazed at how much healthier I am. I am so thankful for the Atkins way of eating. I went from one day eating fake junky foods to eating nothing but good  real food. God food.

Atkins made the transition so natural. I was telling my sister it’s exactly what I needed to change the way I was eating. I had been wanting to get rid of all dyes and processed food from my diet but didn’t know how (strange I know, just STOP). Atkins sort of held my hand and guided me.   I was able to print all the foods that I could eat and print of many recipes. I was able to just jump right in. Well I did have to go shopping first to stock my fridge with veggies and meats.Atkins Mama
I still have that crooked post oral surgery smile (sigh). It’s the weirdest thing to look at pictures like that.

I feel wonderful, my hubby is eating so much better too. He is not on Atkins nor does he want to be.
I know Atkins isn’t for everyone but if you are looking to read so you can learn about better health, I’d recommend New Atkins for a New You or Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution both are very informative about how food affects our body.

I’m an Atkins mama but I do like to learn, learn, learn . . . I found a used copy of Susan Somers Eat Great Lose Weight. My SIL was telling me that it was a good read. That Susan Somers explained how she combines certain foods for better health.

I just finished reading Trim and Healthy Mama by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett. It was really interesting, although they don’t recommend Atkins. The book goes beyond learning about how starchy food turns to sugar. I’ll have to write more about it later.

Another book that is on my wish~list is Wheat Belly. This one was recommended by a friend. I can’t wait to get my hands on it but it won’t be this month.
The kiddos need me so I must end here =o)


  1. I have just begun using Beeyoutiful for my face. I have sensitive skin but so far it's working well.

    I so loved reading the post below this one. It warmed my heart to see your son enjoying God's Word. You have a beautiful family.
