      I experiemented with greek yogurt this weekend, by experiment I mean I ate some. Well it was good, but I think that it effected my cravings. It made me want to eat more. So I more. So I decided that I am going to limit my dairy to just butter and the occasional cheese. Maybe I'll indulge in greek yogurt once a month at the end of the month or something.

      B:4 eggs in coconut oil.
      L: cream cheese, greek yogurt, babybel cheese, kim chee (this was more like munchies, not a real meal)
      D:3 eggs in butter, 2 cups mushrooms sauteed in butter, 1 cup kim chee.

      I wonder if the kimchee had sugar in it, I just kept craving it. I'll have to ask my mom to make me some homemade kimchee so I know for sure there is no sugar.
      All that dairy really upped my carbs today. But it was still net below 50.

          Weight went back up, probably all water weight so I'm not too worried. I went back to eating 3 meals because I think I need the extra protein.

            I'm trying to eat at least 100g of protein but am finding it really hard to eat that much. I skipped breakfast today because I was running late and I was not hungry because of my late dinner last night. So I had a big lunch of half pound ground beef and then by dinner I was not hungry. But I boiled 6 eggs so I could force feed it to myself during my acting class which runs really late.

            L: 1/2lb ground beef, broccoli sauteed in butter.
            D: 6 boiled eggs. Not eaten all at once.

              I'm trying to eat more and get at least 100g of protein in. It's really hard to do. I had to eat my dinner late because I work out at 7pm so I don't get to eat til 9pm. I'm also trying to cut out eggs for a while to see if I have any sort of sensitivity to them. But I love eggs so much, I don't know if I can do this. Maybe I'll finish the eggs I have first then try this.
              Anyway I'm currently reading the Paleo Solution. Interesting so far.

                I don't know what I ate today. I went to the buffet with my mom and had surf and turf and lots of lobster and crab. So i won't worry about recording it today.

                    So I decided I was going to take try Tim Ferris's advice on eating 30g of protein within 30 minutes of getting up. Now I wasn't sure if this is 30 minutes of waking up or getting up. I woke up early but didn't get up for another hour. Oh well.

                        So I've also tried sleeping in the cold with the heat off. I'm not ready to take cold showers, but I can sleep with no heat. I was pretty cold last night, but I woke up warm. My body heat was up and keeping me warm under the blanket. Now that I know we burn more fat when we're cold, I don't mind being cold anymore.

                        I also bought some ketostix just cuz I'm curious. I took the test after eating lunch and the chocolate bar. I was still in mild ketosis even after that.

                        B: 5 eggs in coconut oil, broccoli and mushrooms in butter.
                        L: Whole Foods green curry chicken. 1/2 Theo's 91% dark chocolate bar.

                        This is not an accurate reading of the macros becuase I have no idea what was in the green curry except the chicken. I just ate the chicken though and it was pretty bland and dry.

                          Okay so I feel like i've been a little off track the last couple days. It's the combination of it being my birthday (depressing), valentines day (depressing), and PMS (depressing.) I think it's mostly the PMS that's got me all weird feeling. I had lunch with my brother and my mom this weekend and they pissed me off so bad that I walked out. And it wasn't even that big of a deal. Even as I was walking out, I knew it was PMS. I felt angryl, but I knew it was weird. As soon as I got into my car, I felt fine. I went shopping and ended up spending a ton of money. This is the same thing as emotional binge eating. Its like giving up one drug for another. But I think I'll be back to normal once I start my period, which is 2 days late. Urgh, I just want it to start already so I can move out of PMS.

                            Okay so I still haven't started my period yet. Its now 5 days late. I haven't weighed myself in a week anticipating for it. Now I just want it to come and get it over with. I don't plan on weighing myself until after my period. I also haven't really been tracking my food daily now that I eat just about the same things everyday so there realy is no point. And if I deviate, its because I'm in a situation where I'm out and there's no point in tracking since it'll be inaccurate anyway.
                            So I guess I'll be back in a week...after my TOM has ended.

                              I haven't posted a journal in a while because I know it's not good to weigh and measure during PMS, so I've been waiting for PMS to end...and well, it still hasn't come. So I'm gonna continue to wait for it to end so I can get an accurate measure of where I am.

                              But not that anyone cares, I'm still here...
                              I've been 100% primal and working out 3x a week and walking as usual. So hopefully when I weigh in, it'll be a pleasant suprise. I feel great, except for the lack of period thing, which is sort of uneasy, not because I want it or feel bloated or anything...but it's the anticipation...just come and get it over with all ready! But if my cycle has changed from 28 days to 40 some days and I knew that for a fact, than I would be stoked!

                                Hey! I care!

                                Wierd about your cycle. I haven't noticed any change in mine since going Primal.

                                Surprised you are weighing yourself. I find measurements much more accurate for progress.
