I'm definitely getting bored with my induction options, but I've been planning from the get-go to be on extended induction. I'll be breaking that for awhile when I'm in Las Vegas next weekend, but I'll still stick to carb-free alcohol and low-carb meals in general.

Doing well so far. Tomorrow's weigh in should be fine, and I'll throw in some measurements too! It's so weird how carbohydrates react to my body - yesterday I wasn't really hungry so all I ate was a chicken Caesar salad (sans croutons) for lunch and for dinner at work I had some vegetable beef soup. The only carby stuff in the soup were peas and corn, and not even a whole lot of it, but it definitely affected my unofficial weigh-in this morning. That, and I'm sure the salt did, too.

Today I had a practice LSAT at 8am so I got up at 7:15, showered, and grabbed a small chunk of cheese from the 7-11 store down the street. For lunch I stopped at Subway for a spinach and iceberg salad with green peppers, olives, and highly processed chicken (not a big fan of chicken unless it's highly processed, which is an indicator of how much I generally dislike chicken, I guess). Still kind of working on it, even though I picked it up at 12:30 and it's 3:15 now. I should probably finish it before the mayo/mustard dressing on it starts to go south, but eh. Not really hungry today, either.

** While I'm talking about my practice LSAT: it was my first one, and it royally SUCKED. I'm already contemplating back-up options to law school if I can't get into the University here. My first ever test score: 150. Not bad, according to the instructor, who says that most people score in the low 140s on their first try, but he said the average improvement rate of his students is about 14 points - if I can do that, I'll get around a 164-165 which I feel is good enough for me to be accepted with my current undergraduate GPA. Here's hoping. Anyway, if the law school thing doesn't pan out, I'm definitely looking toward a Master's degree in Public Policy. Paired with my English undergraduate degree, I think that will work out well, and it would put me in a niche that I'm comfortable working in, although is not my lifetime ideal.

Alright, so look for an update tomorrow. :) Official weigh-in number TWO, with MEASUREMENTS to boot. :)
Yesterday was my last day with the boyfriend, P, for another week. Sadface. He lives three hours away for work and only visits a couple times a month on the weekends (I work weekends, though). We were going to pick my parents up from the airport yesterday and then go out to breakfast as a family with my brother and his girlfriend, but my bro picked them up instead and P and I slept through numerous phone calls and text messages alerting us to where they were eating. So we missed family breakfast, but got a ton of much-needed sleep.

Instead, the two of us went to a cute little restaurant up the street called the Over the Counter Cafe. Prices are SO reasonable, and you get more than enough food. I ordered the breakfast sirloin (cooked medium) with two eggs (poached), which comes with toast and hash browns for $8.49. P ordered the French toast which also comes with two eggs (scrambled) for $6.49; he also ate my hash browns and toast. I love OTC because on each table they provide real, heavy cream for your coffee. It's delicious, and it saves me the trouble of having to find out whether or not they carry heavy cream and if I'm going to have to settle for that half-n-half business.

That lasted me all the way until 8pm when I had salad greens with dill-ranch dressing and a cup of tuna with mayonnaise.

Today my weight has dropped to where it was before the disastrous Friday buffet experience, so I'm glad for that.

Today I slept in super late and had to rush to shower and get to work, so I settled for a cup of tuna fish with mayonnaise for breakfast. I went to the grocery store after work in order to do some shopping for travel supplies and purchased one half pound of Jennie-0 turkey pastrami. I love this stuff! Subsequently, I ate the entire package in the store, but it only cost $1.98, and now I just need to worry about getting my salad greens in tonight (Caesar salad, yum).

Until tomorrow!

About the Eggbeater

I'm a recent college graduate, working three jobs, still attending classes for a second degree, and currently enrolled in a grueling LSAT prep course. I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountain area of the United States, and I live here with my family and 85-pound dog-ter.

I've always been kind of up-and-down with my weight: my lowest weight of all time was around 148 pounds, but didn't stay there for long. My highest weight in my entire life was 190 pounds, but I've been in the 170s for quite some time now.

Aside from being a motivating tool to garner results, this blog is an attempt to prove that even as a busy girl with three jobs, school, and a dog, I can find the time and motivation to make the Atkins lifestyle work for me.

My starting weight on 6/3/2010 was 176 lbs. My goal is 144.
