2/28/2011 - Zero Carb Extra

A member of the Zero Carb forum made a real nice comment to me, but what intrigued me was the question that he attached to it. So here is the question he asked and the answer I gave him:


"SteveK
OMG I wish for 1% of your enthusiasm, package it up and send it to me.  I will even pay for shipping. Congrats on the new all time low. 


 Did you ever think you would get there when you started?"

Hi Steve, Thanks buddy. You know, I did not know what to expect. I was pretty sure that I would lose weight. I did not know that I was going to get Energy Spikes lol. Some days, like today, I am charged up. I can't sit still. I swear I have to put my ear buds on and listen to 80s or 90s dance music and tap away. Jeez. I have been going at it since 6:30 am and I don't feel any end is sight.

From the start I had get into the right frame of mind. I know a couple of folks (not on this forum) that started (ZC) and failed within a day or two. Why? Because they were not mentally prepared for the life style change and commitment. I asked them a simple question before they started (ZC): Are you ready? They said "yes" and I said "NO" are you ready? They looked at me as if I were crazy and said with a little laugh "yes". Well, I was looking for "Hell Yes, I am ready!!!" I'm sorry IMO I feel you need to be fired up and willing to do what it takes to succeed on (ZC). It won't take long to figure what foods work and don't work for your personal body chemistry. That is the beauty of this journal. Use it as a tool to aid your Journey. It is a day to day experience. Chronicle it and learn from failures and successes alike. I'm not the brightest turnip (oops) on the truck, but it did not take long to figure that Fatty Beef and H20 work for me.


Steve you have had many successes. Feed off of them. Be strong for yourself and your family. I know you can get through the rough patches. Live Long, Be Strong and Battle On Steve!!!

Today marks 36 weeks of (ZC) and this is my Progress Report:

6/21/10=260lbs 6/28/10=255lbs 7/5/10=252lbs 7/12/10=247.5lbs 7/19/10=245.8lbs 7/26/10=245.6lbs 8/2/10=244.8lbs 8/9/10=240.6lbs 8/16/10=240.4lbs 8/23/10=239.8lbs 8/30/10=238.4lbs 9/6/10=234.2lbs 9/13/10=230.2lbs 9/20/10=228.8lbs 9/27/10=225.6lbs 10/4/2010=221.6lbs 10/11/2010=221.4lbs 10/18/2010=218.0lbs 10/25/2010=216.0lbs 11/1/10=213.6lbs 11/8/1 =211.8lbs 11/15/10=207.4lbs 11/22/10=???lbs 11/29/10=206.8lbs 12/6/10=204.4lbs 12/13/10=202.8lbs 12/20/10=199.4lbs 12/27/10=197.8lbs 1/3/2011=196.8lbs 1/10/11=196.0lbs 1/18/11=195.0 1/24/11=194.6lbs 1/31/2010=193.8lbs 2/7/2011=194.0lbs 2/14/2011=194.0lbs 2/21/2011=194.4lbs 2/28/2011=191.8 lbs

Just call me Sparky. I am charged to the MAX with Energy!! I'm telling you that I am bouncing off the walls y'all! My feet are tapping to "What is Love" by Haddaway. No, I am not doing the "head nod" like on SNL. Hahaha!

Let me see .............. Great Weekend, Great morning Weigh-in, Great Balls of Fire!!! 

Just when I thought life could not get better...........it does. I swear I am just loving it. I feel, it might sound corny, but I feel INVINCIBLE. 

"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar" - Serenity-

I am so high on life I just don't want to come down. My mind is working at lighting speed. I keep thinking about all the possibilities that life has to offer. Jeez I am 47 years old and I feel like a new born babe. What is that all about?

How did so much time go by without this in my Life? I don't know about everyone else, but I tell you what: There is no way I will ever. ever do you hear me, EVER go back to the way it was concerning my (WOE). NEVER!!!!!

Today I am ssssssssssoooooooo charged UP!!! I've got the POWER!!! I always had the power and just did not know it. It was locked up inside. Deep, deep,deep down inside. I'm telling you that I would not have believed it myself less than a year ago that my Physical and Mental Health would Sky Rocket just by changing the WAY I EAT! 

Let me tell you good folks: eight months ago I was down in the dumps. My weight was out of control, my attempts to keep it at bay with low carb and very low carb were failing. I was roller coasting up and down. I could not get off that ride. It was HORRIBLE!

Then I came upon ZERO CARB and got with the program. I do what is Right and I reap the Rewards. There isn't a cake, pie, coke regular or diet, or any so called (carb infested) "treat" out there that would lure me into cheating. No, no way. I will not give this up natural high. 

Today I had an all time low on (ZC) = 191.8 lbs

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Fiends and Zero Carb Family. Fighting Strong!! Living Long!! Battle On!!!

2/27/2011 - Daily Update - All's Well that Ends Well

Wow, what a Great reunion I had yesterday with my buddies. We ate and talked and talked and did I mentioned that we talked a little lol! They were amazed at my Zero Carb weight loss and  made some nice comments to me.

We re-hatched a ton of old war stories. It brought back a lot of memories. We basically stuck with the good times and let the bad ones stay in the past where they belong. My oldest friend who was in attendance, but not part of that past told them all that he felt like he knew them all because of all the old war stories I would tell him.

At the end of the night I made everyone promise that it would not take this long to get together again. Too much time has gone by, so much lost time. We have so little ahead of us. I am the baby of the bunch. The others range from three to ten years older than me more or less. Man did I miss those guys. It felt Great and Weird being all together again. Two of them actually live relatively close to me. The other is on the other side of town, but not too far.

We took a few pictures during and towards the end of gathering. I almost did not want it to end. These were the people that kept me safe during times and that I kept safe during times. We watched each others SIX and  we never let anyone out flank us.

The weather was Great. We ended up spending 90% of the time on my back patio with the tiki torches going and my water features on. they were impressed with the place and made a lot of gracious comments. They loved the food. I'm telling you these guys are the BEST. There is nothing like talking about old times with those who lived them with you. My friend that I have known the longest spent the night. He had some business in the area today. We chatted quite a bit this morning until he left around 10:30 am. He will try to make it back next weekend and may spend the night. These are my brothers now and forever.

Well, I did not weigh myself this morning because I forgot. I must have been preoccupied with my friend being over. I ate a steak and some snow crab. The only thing really out of place is that I ate around 7:30 pm which is really out of place for me.

I have decided to give the Fatty Beef Brisket a break. I crumbled around six pounds of  Ground Beef and Ground Chuck about  50/50. I seasoned it up a little. I will be eating  that for a while and see where it takes me. I have had success with it in the past. I just wanted a change. I don't know how long I will be eating it.

I hope everyone had a Great Zero Carb weekend. Draw the Line, Face your Enemies, and Battle On!!!

(ZC)ers Do It BETTER

2/26/2011 - Daily Update - Reunion of Comrades in Arms

Greetings Friends. My Spirits and Energy Levels are good. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

I will keep this short due to preparations needed for my reunion today with my old Comrades-in-Arms. I am so excited. I was actually able to contact another buddy on a whim and he agreed to come to the reunion. So there will be four of us in total. I have another friend that will attend. He is my oldest friend of all. We have been friends since the 3rd grade. So actually 5 in total.

Yes I plan to make a feast for all. These guys are not (ZC)ers, so I will make both. The (ZC) food I will make will be Rib eyes, Snow Crab and Shrimp.  The seafood will be made in a steam pot with corn and potatoes. I also will make rice, beans and a garden salad. I am also entertaining the thought of making chicken wings. I am not sure on that part yet.

I have a million and one things to do and I need to hop to it. This is going to be a most glorious day indeed.

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Fight the Good Fight!!!


(ZC)ers A Band of Brothers

2/25/2011 - Daily Update - Zero Carb Strikes Again

Howdy. My Spirits and Energy levels are "Sky Rockets In Flight". No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

WOW, what another nice surprise on the scale this morning. It is strange that for about three weeks or so I was totally "Bounces in Ounces". I know I should not care, but yes Dave is human after all. It did irk me a little. Sorry. Did it make me feel that (ZC) was failing me? No way Jose. I was on a good role and I just hated to stop all of a sudden. I Tell You What: I kept doing what is Right, I did not stray. I think that my body was just catching up. I guess. I dunno. I have total faith in this Way of Eating. I not the brightest bulb here. I know the basics and so far that has gotten me to where I am now.

Well, I am anticipating my "Weekend Reunion" with my Battle Buddies. I am so excited. I have seen these guys individually recently. Now they have not seen each other since that last reunion. I can think of a couple of more buddies that I wish I could invite, but I have lost track of them.

Well it looks like Spring is already here in The Woodlands. I will be having a good time on Saturday followed by some big time yard work on Sunday. Ha. Oh well fortunes of war lol.

I am just about out of Fatty Beef Brisket today. I have been thinking (danger, danger danger) about revisiting an old friend: Ground Beef aka Gruel. I still like the Brisket, but I was thinking about a little change up in my day to day routine. I had some pretty good results with it in the past and it has been a long time since I ate any on a regular basis. So I will be on the Hunt after work for a good deal.

Today I had an all time low on (ZC) = 192.4 lbs

Have a Great (ZC) Day and Weekend my Friends and (ZC) Family. No Surrender!! No Retreat!!

2/24/2011 - Daily Update - Leap of Faith

OMG!!! My Spirits and Energy levels way, way out there. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Good times, these are the good times. Leave your cares behind these are the good times. "MY" new state of mind ................... OK already. My next tune will be: Celebrate good times, Come On. There's a party going on right here, a celebration to last throughout the years............. OK, OK, OK................ I think I got it out of my system y'all. Why so happy? Why such a festive mood?

Well I will tell you why OR should I...............?? Hey just joking. I won the Lotto Texas and I am a Millionaire, yeah right lol! Actually I am on the move concerning the scale again. Now that's what I'm talking about!!!

I can't wait to have my old "War Buddies" over on Saturday and talk old times. We have kept in lose contact with each other over the years. We had a reunion once about 15 years ago or so. Man time goes by too fast. I put my life in the hands of these guys many times in the past and they never let me down. I trust them without a doubt. They are the only ones I can talk to about this past .............. they were a part of it and understand fully. If I were to go into battle again I would not hesitate to have them watch my back as I watched theirs.

Today I had an all time low on (ZC) = 192.8 lbs

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep on Keeping On and Battle On!!!

2/23/2011 - Daily Update - Joy, Joy, Joy Down in My Heart

Leaping Lizards! My Spirits and Energy levels are still riding Higher than High! No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

OOOHHH yeah baby!!!! I finally broke the barrier. My tail is waging a thousand miles a minute. Why? Because I am finally moving in the right direction (on the scale). Happy, Happy, Happy. I just knew Zero Carb would not let me down. Here today, Here to Stay!!!

OK, I got that out of my system. NOW MOVING FORWARD. Well you would have thought I won the Lotto with all that hoopla. To tell you the truth I have something money can't buy. No, there isn't enough money in the world to buy what I have: HAPPINESS, PEACE and FULFILLMENT. Let the good times roll.

I will have a couple of buddies over this weekend. I plan on serving grilled Rib eyes and Snow Crab. I can't wait. I worked with these guys back in the "Battle Days". I can't elaborate too much in this area, like I have posted in the past, I have had enough excitement in my lifetime to write an adventure novel, hell maybe a whole series. Now I want peace. Those days are behind me.

I am living the dream. Before (ZC) I almost had it all. I was missing an important link to bring all my good fortune together. Now I have found what is helping to hold all the pieces together, the very substance that makes this happen. Zero Carb was my Missing Link. I have been truly Blessed.

Today I had an all time low on (ZC) = 193.4 lbs

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and (ZC) Family. Fight the Good Fight and Keep the Faith!!!

(ZC) More Fun than the law Allows

2/22/2011 - Daily Update - Love is in the Air

Good Tidings All. My Spirits and Energy levels are high. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Love is in the Air. My love affair with this (WOE) is still strong. Like any relationship I have had to adjust in certain areas in order to make it work. Overall it is all good. Ahhh what a romantic. Hahaha!!! No really, I have had a great time finding out what works for me. Some say that spices effect their weight loss. Well, for me that has not been the case. I have used spices in my meats and I am OK with it. I have never been a big salt fan and I  feel that it is a culprit for water retention. This is just my opinion. I noticed when I cook my meats on the outdoor "Q" it needs less seasoning because of the flavor I get from the wood smoke.

I was a little down last night. Too much thinking lol! I am on the Up and Up today! Bring it On!!! I have decided to make more time which equals less TV time and Net browsing. I will put a good effort to get the "Zero Carb Recipe Corner & More" up and running. I can do it and I will. Hey it sounded convincing too me lol!

Yesterday I was approached by an employee from another department that wanted to get together to discuss my weight loss. So I arranged for some time this morning. So just after opening this morning the employee showed up and asked: "What is the secrete to your success?" Well I explained Zero Carb in its simplest form and she was blown away. I don't think she quite understood the dynamics of this way of eating. I tried to explain the evils of SAD, but I don't think I hit home. People are so brain washed with high fiber low fat diets that some are unreachable. Hey it's what her Doc told her to do. Why would she listen to me? Another one Bites the Dust. I really hate wasting my time explaining to folks about (ZC) just for them the shake their heads in disbelief and wake away thinking that I am a lunatic. Jeez!

This is where I stand and this is who I am. Like it or leave it. I am in Love with this (WOE) and I plan on a long love affair that will last a Lifetime. Yes, I promise never to cheat lol!

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Make Your Stand!!!

2/21/2011- Supplemental - Just a Thought

I love being Zero Carb. It is a big part of my LIFE. It has giving me a second chance to live life to its fullest. I was on the path to destruction concerning my HEALTH. Now I have a new lease on LIFE!!!

This is where I am and this is where I will be for the REST of MY LIFE. I am grateful for all the gifts given to me by Zero Carb I can not count the ways, Sounds like a poem or something lol! Actually I am very much serious about this and I did not mean to make light of it. Lately I have been thinking of just concentrating on the one thing that I have not had a lot of time to deal with. What is that you might ask? Well it is really more than one. The main one believe it or not is my "Zero Carb Recipe Corner Blog and More" I still have not launched it and that has me worried. I have the initial setup, but I have not transfered anything to it. I have not added anything new to the current page on this blog and I am not happy about that. If you knew me better you would understand that cooking is a passion for me. It is my ART. I don't claim to be a chef (lol), but like the writer who never gets his book published it is his passion.

I have almost come to the conclusion of quiting both the Forum and this personal Blog or at least scaling way back and concentrate on the the cooking blog in order to launch it the way it should be: A main focus not an after thought.

Like the title of the post this is "Just a Thought" and I guess I am a little frustrated and I wish I could manage my time better and get more things done. For now My Friends and Zero Carb Family I will continue to post at the Forum and Here. I will have to work harder on the cooking blog to launch it as it should be.

These things have been weighing heavy in my little head and I thought I would convey it. It actually feels better to announce it. I am not going anywhere for now or hopefully ever. I promise to try to make more time to devote to all. Fight the Good Fight and Battle On!!!

(ZC) Stand Your Ground







Cheers

2/21/2011 - Weekly Update - 8 Month Anniversary on Zero Carb

Greetings All. My Spirits and Energy levels are on the Launching Pad!! No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Today I celebrate 8 months of Zero Cab. It is all so new to me and yet has become second nature. Strange to put those sentiments together, but that's how I feel.

As you know from my posts I celebrated my 47th birthday this weekend and I have to say I ate and I ate and I ate. Yes, I ate way too much. It was all (ZC) but I ate too much lol. Jeez. I am up a little on weight today which I expected from the meat orgy I participated in this weekend. I expect to go back down quickly as I go back to my regular routine. No Worries here.

I ate the entire rack of Baby Back ribs Saturday for dinner. I could have stopped at half, but I didn't. Why? I dunno. I just wanted to eat. I think I used it as entertainment. YUK!! We were all having a good time at the restaurant and I just kept eating. I wasn't hurting like on Thanks Giving in the Old Days, just really full. This was out of my nature when it comes to (ZC).

Then the next day at brunch, which was my only meal of the day, I ate what I considered too much once again. Double YUK!! Yes, I could have stopped at one plate and that would have been enough for the whole day. I Tell You What: I am back on track and anticipating more weight loss. It is going to happen, I can feel it.

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep the Faith!!!


(ZC) There A'int No Stopping Me Now

2/20/2011- Daily Update - No Doubt Pigged Out

Great Day All. My Spirits and Energy levels are great. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Today was Birthday celebration part 2. We had a great Brunch buffet at "Americas" restaurant. The food and service were great. I will keep this short and let a picture speak a thousand words.

This was my first plate: Rib eye, Beef Fillet, Shrimp, Carnitas, Bacon, Smoked Salmon, Grilled Salmon, and Tilapia.


My second plate was basically the same. (DW) and the (ILs) had a great time. Later we went for a walk at one of the many trails here at The Woodlands.

Have a Great Day My Friends and Zero Carb Family. Always Battle On!!!

2/19/2011 - Daily Update - Zero Carb - The Sweetest Taboo

Greetings Friends. My Spirits and Energy Levels are on the RISE! No cravings, no cheats or tummy troubles.

First of All I want to thank those who have stopped by and wished me a "Happy Birthday" on the Forum, and on my Blog.

Today I celebrate my 47th birthday. I gotta tellya I feel Great. I had a lot of rest last night. I feel refreshed and I can just feel the Energy Surging through my body. It feels as if it were on the rise. Step back energizer bunny Dave is fixing to blow you out the water lol! I made my reservations for The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center. There should be a total of nine of us. So far the weather is overcast, but we should get some sun later, I hope.

I have had Baby Back ribs on the mind ever since I chose the restaurant that we will go today. A full rack........ aaaahhh ..... I 'm in Pork Paradise just thinking of it. Hahaha!!! Now those folks know how to do real BBQ, heck did I forget I was in Texas lol! I should expect no less.

Now let me see what do I want for my birthday? HHHMMM ........... well.............. I got it!! NOTHING!!! You might be thinking "What the H_ _ _" or something more colorful lol! Look I have got the biggest Gift of All: ZERO CARB!!!!! Guess What?? It is truly the Gift that keeps on Giving. So what else could I possibly want.

I sit here in bed this morning armed with my new laptop cart..........(did I tell you that I bought myself a new laptop cart? lol)........ anyway as I was saying: I sit here in bed typing away thinking: "Can it get any better than this?" Yes it can. Can it? Well I truly think it can. Weight Loss is a very big role in my Journey through Zero Carb. Is it the only factor? I have to be very honest and say at the very beginning it was the only factor that I really considered. From what I have read on the Forum many, many people have benefited from (ZC) for other things besides the weight loss. Now that is something BIG.I can not forget to mention that I was on low does Blood Pressure meds and that has gone away. Zero Carb =  Benefits out the A_ _. oopps sorry I almost forgot myself.

I will continue to speak about the benefits of (ZC) in this section, you folks were getting a bit too graphic for me, you know with the language and all, anyway.......... now back to the many benefits of the (ZC) way of eating part two: have you got the notion that I have had some pretty good ENERGY SPIKES while on Zero Carb, hey I gotta tellya that has been one of my all time favorite benefits of this (WOE). I mean it is right next in line of the weight loss. Skin? Well not too many men will talk about skin and such, but I will. I have noticed  my skin clearer and with a nice, a nice......... glow? Yes. I guess glow describes it best. Hey it shines! Not oily just nice and clear. I just don't know the words y'all lol.

All right I guess I have to say at the end of the day that ZERO CARB has been the "SWEETEST TABOO"  which brings to mind one of my all time favorite recording artist: Sade. I love her unique style, she is a class act. I have been to three of her concerts back in the day. So yes I have that song playing over and over in the background as I type lol.

Ramble, ramble, ramble ........... hey! I am still a (ZC) baby by all standards. I am almost 8 (ZC) months old. Just a babe in the woods. I am still figuring things out and learning along the way and having the Time of MY Life!! OK I guess that's all for now folks.

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep the Faith and Battle On!!!

2/18/2011 - Daily Update - I'll Be There, Just Take My Hand

Howdy Y’all. My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

You and I must make a pact, we must bring salvation back
Where there is love, I'll be there

I'll reach out my hand to you, I'll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I'll be there

I'll be there to comfort you,
Build my world of dreams around you, I'm so glad that I found you
I'll be there with a love that's strong
I'll be your strength, I'll keep holding on

Let me fill your heart with joy and laughter
Togetherness, well that's all I'm after
Whenever you need me, I'll be there
I'll be there to protect you, with an unselfish love that respects you
Just call my name and I'll be there

If you should ever find someone new, I know he'd better be good to you
'Cause if he doesn't, I'll be there
Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah
I'll be there, I'll be there, just call my name, I'll be there

(Just look over your shoulders, honey - oo)

I'll be there, I'll be there, whenever you need me, I'll be there
Don't you know, baby, yeah yeah

I'll be there, I'll be there, just call my name, I'll be there... 

Yes you guessed it these are the lyrics to “I’ll be there” by the Jackson 5. I kept thinking about this song on my commute to work this morning. Upon examining the actual words I can see how a lot of it correlates with (ZC) to ME. How? Just read the words. I would be surprised if there was not just one line in the whole song that did not make a connection with you concerning Zero Carb. I am thinking too Deep again…………. Probably ……. maybe …….. I dunno lol.  OK I’m Weird like That!!!

This is MY Birthday Weekend. I will get a double dose of Birthday Cheer. Saturday I will dine at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center and Sunday I will have brunch at Americas. It is a South American style restaurant located right next to one of my favorite Irish Bistro/Pub The Gooses Acre. From what I read on the Net they have a “Carver’s Table”. I can’t wait. Hahaha!!!

Have a Great Zero Carb Day and Weekend my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep On Keeping On and Battle On!!!

2/17/2011 - Daily Update - Butterfly Nets

Greetings Friends. My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings or cheats. Minor tummy troubles last night.

Hello, Hello, Hello! Another fresh day in the Life of Zero Carb! I am feeling a bit better from my small bout of tummy troubles last night. I don’t know what triggered it. I am still a little under the weather, but not by much. I continue to have this feeling of resurgence. I continue to feel strong.

I scored a nice Fatty Beef Brisket yester at HEB @ $1.99 lb and cooked it about a third of the way on the “Q” to get the smoke flavor from the wood box. I used Mesquite wood for the smoke. It has a milder taste to me than Hickory. It is just a change. I do enjoy Hickory. I plan on experimenting with other woods in the near future. The woods I am interested in is Pecan, Apple and Oak.  Any suggestions y’all??

BTW I posted a picture of the brisket I cooked last night on Tilla’s Journal for those interested. After I cooked it I let it rest and continue cooking on my kitchen island. I Tell You What: the entire kitchen smelled just oh so glorious this morning.  I did not get up early enough to do my regular cubing, so I sliced off a couple of hunks and took it to work for my first meal of the day. YUM!!!!

I am going to start yet another New Blog titled: “MY New Life by Zero Carb”………………not. I do feel that way.  I just want to go to the rooftops and shout it out: “I AM A ZERO CARBER AND I LOVE MY NEW LIFE!!!”  At that point the nice gentlemen with the white coats and large butterfly nets will arrive to take me away to my very own padded cell and they will even provide me with a fitted jacket. Hahaha!!!

“Take Me High, Take Me Low, Take Me Where I want to Go. You can't take my Joy from me since I found Serenity.” – Dave-

Well, I gotta tellya that I just love that laptop cart. It makes oh so easy to use the laptop from bed. Hey you gotta do what you gotta do lol!

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. No Surrender!! No Retreat!!

2/16/2011 - Daily Update - A New Campaign

 Back in the Battle.  My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Today I got up with much enthusiasm. Sometimes I think too deep about all that is going on around me. It is easy to get caught up in day to day things that might sidetrack you. I mean the little things that seem to burden us more than they are worth. As I grow older and wiser (I hope) I come to realize that the little things need to be kept in prospective as “Little Things” and not to let them get out of hand.

Well o well I ran out of Fatty Beef Brisket. I served my last meal today for my first meal of the day in which I have yet to eat. I have been buying smaller Briskets because they are more manageable to cook. Small….. well I guess you can call a twelve pound brisket small lol. In the past I would cook twenty pounders. Now those are easy to find the ten to twelve pound deals are not at least for me. So guess who will be on the hunt today? I do have a nice stash of oh so fatty Beef ribs. I have been chowing down on those bad boys for my second meal of the day after work. YUM.

I bought a laptop cart yesterday. It is pretty cool. I like to sit up on my bed and do a lot of work on my laptop from there, but it is hard to manage it. So I finally found a nice cart to put my laptop on. It is sorta like a hospital bedside table that can be extended over the bed. This one is a little shorter and has a section that can tilt. It has a smaller section that is does not tilt and can be used for a mouse or a drink or snack such as a nice fat juicy Beef rib. Ha! Here is a picture of it:







It came in a flat pack box and I had to assemble it. Hey it was a piece of cake (oops) it was a piece of Pemmi. There better. Hahaha!!! So far I love it. I can tilt it in two positions and I can adjust the height. I was a little concerned because my bed sits a little high, but the highest setting seems right and probably could be lowered one level. I just love the tilt feature. Cool! (DW) did not seem to be keen of the idea of the cart in the bedroom. Oh well.

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep On Keeping On!!!

(ZC)  A New Campaign, Battle On!!!

2/15/2011 - Daily Update - Staying Alive

Staying Alive. My Spirits and Energy are off the CHART!!!!! No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

A most Glorious day y'all. I woke up today thinking what is (ZC) going to bring me today? So I popped up on the scale and low and behold: 194.0 lbs. Well, go figure lol. Frustrating? Neah.  It did make me think.......... OK...........Step back this could be DANGEROUS y'all! Hahaha!!! Really it did get me thinking about (ZC) in general. I AM ALIVE. Yes my Friends and Zero Carb Family. ALIVE. I am Regenerated, I am Living a Life that I thought would be oh so different at this point in my life and I am not talking in a positive way. For Me the weight played a big role. 

So anyway after I got off the scale and saw no movement up or down I thought "I am still in the game, I'm Staying Alive." Staying Alive? HHHMMM that brings a song to mind. OK all you old schoolers who among you don't remember the BEE GEEs. At this point the song keeps playing over and over in my head. Needless to say when I got to work I googled the video, put on my ear buds and tapped to the beat. Yes, this is an old school song before my time in general, yet not that far away. So I began to think of a small parody of that song and here it is:

Well, you can tell by the way I eat my Ribs,
I'm a (ZC)er, no time to talk.
Rib eyes rare and really warm.
I wish I was eating them since I was born.
And now it's all right, it's O.K.
I live to eat another day.
We can try to understand
Zero Carbs effect on man.
Whether you're a brother
Or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel the city breakin'
And ev'rybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha,
Stayin' alive.
Stayin' alive.

Well I thought it was a little funny lol! So, I am definitely Staying Alive! My outlook on (ZC) has never been stronger. This is my new life and I plan on living it to the fullest. I just know something wonderful is just around the corner I feel it all over. I can't exactly explain why. I just know. 

Have a Great Day My Friends and Zero Carb Family. I'm Staying Alive! Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Here Today, Here to Stay

Staying Alive:

I will tell you what: I am not bothered by it at all. It is what it is. I know that I am doing what I need to do to be True to Zero Carb. The rest is out of my hands. I have had  and I am having a Great Ride on Zero Carb and I know I will continue too. I just know it could not be the slight modification of adding a daily hostess ding dong to my daily menu..............Not lol!

OMG I could not have asked for a better weekend. The Weather, The Ribs, The Weather, The Ribs and did I fail to mention the Ribs? Oh well I did "Q" like a ton of Beef ribs. Yes, they were indeed good. (DW) had to work on Sunday and when she got home form work the Beef ribs were just done and she tore them up. It was not pretty to say the least. Hahaha!!!

I hope all you cupids out there have fun today. I'm an old romantic and will give (DW) flowers. I will cook her a special dinner when I get home from work. The main course? T-bone steak and yes I will cook some unmentionable sides lol! 

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep the Faith and Battle On!!!

Greetings Friends. My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Yet another glorious beautiful day in The Woodlands. Clear blue skies at 44 degrees currently (9 am)  for a high today of 67 degrees by 3 pm. A Glorious Day Indeed!

I had a ton of fun yesterday with (DW) and (ILs). As planned we went out to eat OR should I say they went out to eat and I watched lol! It was OK. I have a Will of Steel and this was not a biggie for me. This is life living as a  Zero Carber (ZC)er and I am GOOD with it. I know things are not going to change not matter how successful I am. It is what it is. I just move on with my own agenda.

After they ate we took a nice stroll down the Water Way. MAN there was a whole lotta folks out. I can't blame them. with the recent horrible weather and all. It was sure nice to see all the folks just taken in the Great weather and enjoying themselves like us. The skies were blue and clear. The air held a cool crisp feeling. It was a magic mixture of a bright sunny day with a clean cool breeze keep things conformable. I wore a long sleeve shirt = no jacket required.

Well later today will be Riborama 2011 I have a ton of Beef ribs and one package of swine (Pork) ribs ready to rock. I will try to take a few pictures and post them tomorrow with my weekly update. Time to get outta here and enjoy the weather while I can.

(ZC) Full Speed Ahead

2/12/2011 - Extra - A Special Message from PZ aka Prozac

Prozac said:


You have written many things since the beginning of but today, you have said it loud and high: < I don't mind sitting while everyone else eats, it won't be the first time and it won't be the last time. It is part of LIFE as a (ZC)er living in a SAD world.>

It took my years to arrive at this point; you did it in a few months. Congratulations!!!

The day humans decided to stop taking care of there own food needs and let others do the work for them, they were exposed to human's greediness, the result being that today's bad health is the tip of the iceberg of how much we are victims of a big fraud.

Prozac


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dave's response:


Hi Pz, I for one will not miss out on the company of those I love because of some stinking carbs. Did they have something I could eat at the Olive Garden? Actually "Yes". They had braised Beef ribs and grilled Pork. Would I order them? Well if I was hungry possible. I always have this little voice inside that they may have hidden carbs in marinades or sugar in rubs. It does not cost anything to ask and if the answer is "I don't know" then I don't order. It is as simple as that. I am not willing to trade. No, no way Jose. I am not going to die from a little hunger. Hey I still have a lot of reserves HA!

Well Thank You PZ, for your compliment and points of view. I always enjoy reading your comments. I like this comment so much that I am going to make it a post along with my response. I hope you don't mind. The title will be "A Special Message from PZ aka Prozac". Battle On!!!

(ZC) Wise Words

2/12/2011 - Daily Update - Ribs, Ribs and More Ribs

Wonderful Day Y'all! My Spirits and Energy Levels are bursting out the seams!!! No cheats, cravings or tummy troubles.

I am chocked full of energy and I am just happy as a lark lol!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!! I wake up to yet another beautiful sunny clear blue skied day! It just does not get better than this in The Woodlands at 49 degrees. Outdoors is sunny, fresh and cool. OMG!!!! I just can't wait to go out and enjoy the weather!

(DW) wants to go out to eat today at the Olive Garden with her parents today for lunch (in an hour or so). I would opt out, but we will go walking down the Water Way afterwards. So I will go. What will Dave eat? Nothing. I plan to eat a bite here before we leave, hungry or not. I will drink a cool glass of sparkling water I just may dare to have a lime or lemon squeeze in it or not. Hey I don't mind sitting while everyone else eats, it won't be the first time and it won't be the last time. It is part of LIFE as a (ZC)er living in a SAD world. Ha how sad is that lol!

On to better things. B.E.E.F. R.I.B.S. YES!!!!!!!! We are talking Beef Rib Fest 2011 Y'all! OK so I went a little overboard yesterday evening after a long grueling day at work (lol) and found some fresh cut Beef Ribs on sale at HEB at $1.99 lb. So I scored three packs of Beef Ribs along with one pack of Pork Ribs for good measure. I have in the freezer two other packages of Beef Ribs. So here I sit surrounded and out numbered by Beef Ribs. What is a (ZC)er to do?? Well, I Tell You What: I plan on a wholesale onslaught of those bad boys. I will be fire up both my pits, coal and gas, on the Morrow and have a Riborama showdown and it ain't gonna be pretty. Hahaha!!! I also have three T-bones ready for action as my emergency steaks ready for action.

I will make Dave's soon to be famous "Rib Tents" and cook away. Yes, it will be a most glorious day to say the least lol. Anyway I plan to have a nice day with (DW) and (ILs). I can't wait to under the sunshine soaking up some good old vitamin "D".

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and (ZC) Family. Battle On!!!


(ZC) It's a BLAST

2/11/2011 - Daily Update - Hour of Power Surge

Burr Day all. My Spirits and Energy levels are on the RISE! No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

It was around 18 degrees this lovely morning as I drove to work. No rain = no ice. I can’t wait to enjoy what is supposed to be a beautiful weekend: clear blue skies and temps in the 50s. Do I hear picture time? Lol! Maybe? Sorta? Kinda?

I have a Birthday this month. I will celebrate it on Saturday February 19, 2011. This is not my actual B-day but, simply the day I will celebrate it. I am not exactly sure what I am going to do. (DW) wants to treat me to a Brazilian Steak house in The Woodlands. It’s called Guri do Sul. It is a southern Brazilian Steakhouse. I might do something at the house; I am not sure at this time lol!

So I’m getting older. That’s OK. I feel younger inside and out since Zero Carb (ZC) came into my LIFE or should I say saved my LIFE. I just might treat myself to a fitted shirt. I will go shopping this Sunday and see what is out there. If I find something I like I will buy it and wear it on my Birthday regardless where I go or what I do on that day.

I am starting to have a SURGE in Energy this morning. Funny thing: I started the day with good energy, but now I actually can feel the flow of energy rising. How? I Feel The Need, The Need for Speed!!!! Actually my feet can’t stand still. Yes, once again I must put the ear buds on with some old dance club music pumping out to go with the foot tapping. So what is Dave listening too. Well just an old school song by Taylor Dayne “Tell it to my Heart”. I do miss the old days of dancing endless hours at the club in my “Young Gun” days.

Taylor Dayne: Tell It to My Heart

Life is Great everyday on Zero Carb for me. I Love it more and more each and every day. For those out there in cyber space wondering, I can tell you this: I have been truly Blessed to find (ZC). It has been a true Life saver.

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. No Surrender!! No Retreat!! Keep On Keeping On and Battle On!!!


(ZC) Light It UP

2/10/2011 - Zero Carb- On the Night Train

Take me High, Take me Low, Take me where I want to go. You can't take my Joy from Me. Since I found Serenity.

I have a big weekend planned. I will be working on the "Zero Carb Recipe Corner & More" blog. I plan to transfer all the current recipes and comments. The new blog will allow me to archive all the recipes. Currently all my recipes can only be placed on one page and that will get bogged down with too many pictures and will load slowly for those with slower connections. 

I will start looking into Food Photography. I want to take nice pictures for my Step by Step recipes. I am having tons of fun with this. I have  not cooked much variety since starting Zero Carb and I miss all the cooking. This is who I am this what I do.

I Tell You What: my little brain is working overtime thinking new Zero Carb recipes. Some folks may care for variety, some might. I have some ideas that I want to kick around in my Zero Carb Test Kitchen. So sit back and relax and try some of these Step by Step recipes and Enjoy.

(ZC) The Spice of Life

2/10/2011 - Daily Update - The Price is Right

 Freezing Day All. My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings or cheats. Slight tummy troubles.

Wow was it cold this morning, around 21 degrees. Burr! That’s could for us southern. Don’t get me wrong, believe it or not I like the cold. It is always hot in the south. Cold weather is a treat for me. Minus the ice on the freeways of course lol!

I scored a nice Fatty Beef Brisket at HEB yesterday and a package of Beef rib. A most successful hunt if I should say so myself. I have noticed beef prices edging up lately. In the past I could get the Brisket most of the time for $1.68 lb. I could find Beef ribs for about the same price. The Beef ribs I bought yesterday were on sale for $2.02 lb. I did find some bone-in Rib eyes on sale for $3.77 lb at Randall’s (aka Safeway). I will score some before the sale ends next week.

I defrosted some T-bones to replenish my “emergency steak” stockpile. I will probably grill them Saturday. I just love steak with bone. Oh yeah let’s not forget Beef ribs. I must spend three times longer gnawing on the bones than I do eating the meat. Jeez!!!

I was sssooo relieved to hear the news reports this morning that there was no ice on the freeways this morning. It did rain yesterday, but the wind helped dry off the roads and the rain was light. We are supposed to have a bright sunny weekend with temperatures in the 50’s.

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Fight the Good Fight!!!

(ZC) A Lost Treasure

2/9/2011 - Daily Update - In Too Deep

Good day all. My Spirits and Energy levels are in check. No cravings, cheats or tummy troubles.

Well, well, well ………………. What is today going bring? As For me your guess is good as any.  ………………….. Something nice, something wonderful or all of the above.

It is grand having a new state of mind. A new outlook on life. A new zeal. A new zest for what comes my way. Just being………..well…………here. Enjoying all the simple things. Enjoying the complicated things.  Living and learning. Just doing the do.

I am in a “deep” mood today. Could you guess lol! As I sit here thinking I am sipping on my triple chocolate mocha latte with extra whipped cream..........Not. Hahaha. Yes, that last statement was some dark (ZC) humor.  Alright back on track……I do like to joke around a little……pardon me.

I am creating a second blog dedicated to Zero Carb cooking and related items. It is an extension of my “Zero Carb Recipe Corner" currently at my Blog. What is the name of that Blog, and where can I find it. Great questions y’all. Actually all you have to do is click on the same tab. Instead of all the recipes and step by step instructions, you will see a link. The link will take you straight to the other blog. The name? Let me see……….HHHHMMM….. “Zero Carb Recipe Corner & More”. I have the basic layout done. I need to transfer all the recipes and comments there and then I will link it. If I have time this weekend, I will complete the project.  It is a labor of LOVE.

I swear Zero Carb is beginning to become an afterthought for me. I love that state of mind. I just do it because it is natural. It is second nature. Because it is what I should have been doing all along. What a great satisfying feeling. I mean wonderful. Once again simple words cannot describe it. It is way too deep in me. Go figure.

I have a lot of Journal catching up to do. I’m sorry that I have not been posting much outside my Journal. I do enjoy reading other journals and learning from others. I plan on catching up and posting. I do appreciate all the wonderful comments posted on my Journal. I hope is some little way my simple words bring a smile or a thought or something positive to someone.

Have a Great Zero Carb Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. No Surrender!! No Retreat!! Always Battle On!!!

2/8/2011 - Daily Update - Getting Jiggy with It

Good Tidings All. My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cravings, cheats, or tummy troubles.

I am having a great day so far. It looks like San Diego is back on the plate. Just a week later than previously planned. I may end up buying the tickets today. So San Diego Mini Meat 2 should be coming to a theater near you soon. Hahaha!!!  Heads up Gaby and Teri!

Lately I have been eating my first meal of the day early in the morning. I just wait until I am hungry. A few months ago I would eat later in the morning.  I guess it just part of changes going on inside of me lol!

I am not looking forward to this Thursday or Friday. WHY? According to the weather forecast we should be getting more cold icy roads. Yikes! I have my alternate route planned and I will pray for the good Lord to watch over me as I trek to work.  Our forecast for the next three days Wed High 46 low 24 rain, Thu high 44 low 25, Fri high 52 low 28 degrees. Will there be Ice? Maybe?

You know over 800 accidents were reported last Friday. That all happened in 12 hours of less. Scary to say the least.

I am up a little on the weight. No worries here. I am just going with the (ZC) flow and I trust that good times are around the corner. Hey actually Good Times are NOW!!!

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Battle On till the break of Dawn.

(ZC) and the Beat Goes On

Greetings Friends.  My Spirits and Energy levels are good. No cheats, cravings or tummy troubles.

Today marks 33 weeks of (ZC) and this is my Progress Report:

 Trouble in Paradise? Well it looks like I had a slight gain. OMG ………. I quit. Bring on the Carbs. Right? Sorry for the drama.  Hahaha!!!! Hey we are just talking ounces lol.  I tell you what: I feel great!! I know that I still have a way to go with the weight loss. I think my body is going through some changes. I can tell you this much: my clothes are really fitting nice.

I ended up having so much energy yesterday that I did some much needed yard work. I was way behind and I’m sure my neighbors appreciated it lol! I really enjoyed being outdoors. It was a beautiful day to be in the open air.

OK no more horsing around. I am almost out of my Fatty Beef Brisket. I will probably hit HEB Wednesday and pick up one and cook it via “oven method”.  This last one came out sssooo good.  YUM!!!

Well, the trip to the “Hong Kong Market” was interesting. This store had a good verity of Asian goodies. Unfortunately they advertised roasted pork, but had none. I gotta tell ya that roasted pork is so good. I mean they have a whole large pig hanging from a hook. It sorta looks like they deep fried it in a large vat. They actually have a special oven where they toast/roast it whole. The taste is out of this world.

BTW I posted my Step by Step Flash Freeze Method of freezing my emergency steaks and beef patties on my Blog for those that are interested.

Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Fight the Good Fight!!!

(ZC) Take the First Step




Cheers
