I just came back from a 5 day holiday out of which on 4 days I barely moved my butt (only exercise was in forms of things like walking from the hotel room to the car )

I ate loads of spicy foods like chicken currrrrrrry (yum - yum), paneer tikka, kababs..........I managed to stay low carb but I lost control on portion sizes. To say that I hogged would be an understatement.

BP this morning (when i returned) was 130/90. Much higher than I want it to be...

Will be getting back on my elliptical from tonight !

I didn't go to any exotic places, but my oldest son did invite us to have Christmas breakfast at his place. Pretty much I've avoided bread, pancakes, potatoes........well - you get the idea. We arrived at his place to sit down to homemade buttermilk pancakes with real maple syrup, fried potatoes from scratch and all my 'resolve to abstain' went flying out the window.

It has been a long time since I had pancakes or fried potatoes........and it will be a long time until I have them again. But dang! The kid made me proud

I will have to say I used to make a side dish for eggs with diced sweet ham, peppers, onions and potatoes fried to a crispy perfection that I would have fought my mother over in the past.

MCS, that sounds wonderful...just omit the potatoes and you can still eat that. Sub something in for the potatoes that you really like, or perhaps through it in a low carb wrap? I was actually thinking about breakfast for dinner tonight. I'm kinda craving a big ole western omelette with some low carb pannycakes...and diabetic syrup of course. Mmmmm, I think that is what I'm having tonight. Yum...can't wait now....I must find that recipe for the low carb pannycakes....excuse me while I drool and move to the Recipes blog....

I've heard of folks using turnips and/or jicama for hashbrowns/home fries/French fries. Haven't tried either one yet. Supposedly they're much lower in carb than the real deal.

I've used coarsely grated turnips for hashbrowns & it works well enough. I wasn't quite so taken with jicama, because cooking doesn't change the texture - it stays crisp, kinda like water chestnuts.

It worked fine but I sure didn't like the altitude, it was a weird chest caving feeling.
Altitude hit me this week & I'm glad to be back home somewhat closer to sea level now. Y'all know Denver as the mile-high city . . . and Durango is higher than that - I think about 6500 ft. I wasn't worth much all week. Slept a lot & was only beginning to adjust when it was time to head home.

But I had my food battles too - all week long. The kids do pretty well cooking from scratch & fixing decent meals, but they're still stuck in the bad fats rut, so there is just no use looking for butter, real mayo, etc., in their homes, because it won't be found. My "beignet" for the week was the bran/raisin muffins baked by dear daughter . . . she's the first to admit that she isn't a cook, much less a baker, but she hit the spot with those muffins & I couldn't leave them alone. She also baked a coupla eggnog pies which I'm pretty sure I can low-carb very easily, if I can just get my hands on her recipe.

Very happy to be back home & noshing on my cream cheese-stuffed celery again!

@ everyone who went on Christmas vacation...
I'm so glad you're back! This place hasn't been the same without you.

@ moon...
I totally agree with naynay. If you aren't a writer, you should be. Your secret chocolate cake post had me rolling on the floor!

@ everyone...
If you haven't read moon's secret chocolate cake post (especially the last paragraph) you should. Here is the link:
