Get into the groove

You remember the old Madonna song Get into the Groove that is my theme song of the week. I am getting back into the groove with my lifestyle change.
Back from vacation and pretty darn proud of myself for not going into old binge mode! As a recovering bulimic , this is huge for me. I haven’t had a binge in months and I am not even tempted to.
This weekend could have been the opportunity to keep vacation mode on track eating a bit of track as I had two cookout birthday celebrations. One for my dear friend that turned 40 and another one for my father in law that is turning 80 years old. I find cookouts pretty easy to navigate for lowering my carbs-plain burger with cheese and any other meat plus some salad. People really do not notice that you are not having a roll. In the past I thought someone would ask why no bun, honestly no one cares. I also skipped cake as honestly I can care less about cake.

My sister in law made a great cucumber salad and she doesn’t eat sugar so it is low carb
1/4 cup rice vinegar1 Tbsp. olive oilSeveral splenda packages atleast 2-3 can have more if needed
1/2 teaspoon salt1 large cucumber1/4 cup thinkly sliced onion (red or white -- can be omitted)
Combine first four ingredients in a medium bowl. Peel cucumber, or score it if you prefer. Cut into thin slices. Add onion and toss in medium bowl with mixture. Cover and refrigerate for a half hour.
