Remember Grok couldn't catch turkey bacon, it's a manufactured food. Pork Bellies yes if he was man enough to do battle with a Boar. He also wouldn't have nitrates and all the crap that we put in bacon these days so if you can find all-natural than that is best.
B- same as usual. 2 eggs, butter, 3 pieces turkey bacon, milk, blueberries, sugar free syrup (I put this on my eggs along with some cinnamon and butter and it's almost like eating french toast), coffee
L- taco salad
S- strawberries, greek yogurt
D- scallops fried in coconut oil, cauliflower
Exercise- Week 10, Day 2 of P90X= plyometrics (ugh)
omg I was thinking about coconut oil + scallops earlier today. Was it amazing? I picked some up at the store today (both coconut oil and scallops) and can't wait to try it... it'll have to be next week though, as we have lots of fresh things to use this week and the scallops are frozen so they'll "keep" for a while.
Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.
L- had a potluck at work today. This is where things go south....green salad, olives, almonds, sausage, watermelon...so far so good right? Not. Enter chocolate chip cookies and doritos. Why? Why? Remember this sick horrible feeling next time I think eating crap would be okay.
D- big fat SKIP
I still did my P90X though- regurging chocolate chip cookies the whole way. Week 10, day 3- back & biceps
Did not track my food on fitday so can't give the breakdown. And really, do we want to know? Not me.
You're not the only one who has those days. I'm arguing with myself over whether I'm going to indulge on chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for Father's Day, or if I'm going to be a good girl and go buy a bar of 100% chocolate and almond butter.
Don't beat yourself up over it, and the crappy feeling will pass. I think after you experience it enough times, nothing tastes good enough to want to feel like crap after.
Great work in the morning though, and remember- your last meal isn't as important as your next one.
Good words Diana, I was just moaning that I have eaten way too much fruit and my carb intake is far too high now, I feel pretty crappy. I IF-ed yesterday and went on a hike and have now craved and been too hungry all day, and clearly have not eaten enough fat or protein to curb it .
@Diana- I'm in the same boat for Father's Day. We don't go out to eat because of the crowds of people on these inane holidays so my husband has asked me to cook instead for "his day." He wants kalbi ribs (ribs made korean style with a sugary marinade), corn on the cob, potato salad, and macaroni salad. Oy! It's okay, I'll just make something else for myself. Don't really like those foods anyway except corn on the cob-which I will probably go ahead and eat.
@Jordanna- getting too hungry sets me up also. Although hunger has been pretty low since I cut out the refined starches- still have to be careful especially since I'm still taking diabetes meds- sometimes the blood sugar gets too low and that's not good either.
