        B: IF


        S: Blackberries and almonds


        L: Chicken Cordon Bleu and broccoli


        S: Apple


        D: Turkey breast and mixed steamed veggies.


        WOD: 10 minute breaktime walk.


        I am noticing that vegetables still have quite a load of carbs. Though the Chicken Cordon Bleu takes the cake since the only chicken available was breaded.

            Hi, Jenni. Thanks. Yeah... I didn't expect that. I forgot to post yesterday, so here is:


            Day 3


            B: 2 egg omelet with onions, peppers and tomatoes, and 3 strips of bacon.


            S: Almonds


            L: Mixed greens and veggie salad and a grilled chicken breast.


            S: I had a chocolate craving at this point in my day, but instead of the chocolate, ended up with an almond granola bar. Yeah, granola = bad. I should have had my peach. Small fail.


            D: 4 slices of thinly cut roast beef.


            WOD:


            Upper body strength training. Began with assisted pullups, moved into shoulder presses with a 30 lb barbell, then seated rows 70 lbs, and ended with pushups and sit ups. I can still only do two proper pushups before I have to drop to my knees.


            Macros:


            Fat: 119 g


            Carbs: 70.1 g

              Day 4


              B: Sliced roast beef with almonds and cherries


              S: More almonds and cherries. Had to finish up the cherries as they were going bad....


              L: 2 ground beef patties with tomato slices and a small salad.


              S: Yep... more cherries.


              D: Pork salad w/mango salsa


              WOD:


              10 minute walk

                Day 5:


                B: IF. Stayed in bed late.


                L: 2 eggs scrambled with uncured, nitrate free bacon, onions and peppers as well as some blackberries with a splash of cream on them. I did have a slice of sprouted grain bread with butter. I had thought with the sprouting that most of the gluten would be gone. It still affected me, so it's gone.


                D: Grilled chicken and steak with some roasted veggies and a side salad. Split half a beer with the husband before heading out.


                S: Chai Tea Latte. We went to the bookstore, and it's my one real treat when we go there. I love sipping the drink as I browse through a selection of books.


                WOD:


                Gardening. But not as much as I had planned, considering how late I was out of bed this morning. Still, I managed to transplant an ornamental grass.

                  B: Blackberries and walnuts.


                  L: This ended up being a repeat of yesterday's brunch minus the bacon. I did cook the eggs in bacon fat saved from a previous batch, however. Mmmm. Scrambled eggs with peppers and bacon and half a tomato.


                  S: Two radishes and a cup of milk.


                  D: Buffalo meatloaf. My husband cooked tonight and was on a roll. He made a yogurt sauce to go on the meat. It was soooo good. Food was cooked with coconut oil and we had broccoli with butter. The meatloaf had a bit of onion and bacon in it as well.


                  WOD:


                  Gardening again. Pulling weeds for about an hour.

                      Today turned out to be a high food day, despite that I was going to skip dinner. But I made an off the cuff chicken/eggplant soup that turned out so well I had to have some!


                      B: Roast beef, almonds and blackberries.


                      S: Yogurt


                      L: 2 Chicken breasts w/1 cup mixed Chinese veggies.


                      S: Almonds


                      D: Chicken/Eggplant soup. 1 slice Irish Whiskey Cheese.


                      1 package chicken breast, 1 package chicken thighs cut into pieces.

                      1/2 large eggplant, chopped into cubes.

                      1/2 onion, chopped.

                      3 cloves garlic, minced.

                      1 lg can of roasted organic tomatoes

                      red pepper, powdered

                      tarragon


                      Chicken was seasoned with garlic powder, pepper and salt, then browned in coconut oil. I added the red pepper and tarragon, onion, garlic, eggplant and tomatoes, then water to fill the pot. I let this cook for 25-20 minutes.


                      WOD:


                      10 minute walk at break.

                              I weighed myself last night. The scale read 226. Up from 222, but still down from the 228 of before. Perhaps the 222 was a fluke, as it was a bit much to lose at one time.
