    Solldara - I know you are right, I should just go home and toss it. I have bought other nut butters but luckily I don't love them enough to eat them by the spoonful, so they are safe. I don't know why but throwing out food just freaks me out, my dogs have one of those kong things, so I can stuff the last 1/2 cup of it in there Then I will have happy dogs and a happy waist!

    Thanks for the much needed motivation!

      Cashew butter is my new favorite. Slightly sweet, it tastes delicious with sliced apple. My DH dips his potato chips in it. Good with dark chocolate but best with apple!

        I actually have a jar of cashew butter that I have yet to open... perhaps I will give it a try, I have some apples here waiting to be eaten!

        And I am very proud to say I ditched the peanut butter, which my doggies loved!

          Congrats on ditching the PB! I'm with you on the "throwing food away freaks me out"

            Ah yes, as much as it hurt my head, I also pitched a container of cool whip sitting in the fridge staring me down after I got back from golf. I did one of those "oh is it really that bad" things, then I picked it up... second ingredient was corn syrup ... it was immediately tossed, and that one I wouldn't even offer to the dogs, they don't eat any grains either It was actually when I got my German Shepherd and realized he was having issues with regular dog food that I realize how much crap we feed our animals and ourselves. My dogs all got moved to grain free food, and now they are all healthier, leaner, yet more muscular. After I saw that I was like "humm what would happen if I gave up the grains too?"

            I'm trying to decide if I want to cook dinner or if I just want to eat something light before bed ... we shall see! Off to browse the fridge!

              Yesterday I got a lot of movement in, but not a lot of food ... today I am going to eat more! My day was thrown off when my husband called me at work at told me he really messed up his hand breaking up a fight between two of our dogs. He was freaking out, so I left work to go home and take care of that. It wasn't nearly as bad as he made it out to be ... such the drama queen But I ended up staying home for the rest of the day. After getting him cleaned up and in bed with ice on his wrist I went out and walked 9 holes of golf. Came back, ate food, was lazy, then went to play 9 more in my league. By the time I got home I was too lazy to cook so I just had a smoothie with added protein. I am feeling a bit hungry this morning, so I foresee a big breakfast today!

              FoodLog
              B - Skipped
              L - left over turkey burger with cheese, chicken sausage, coleslaw, a larabar
              S - little less than on ounce of dark chocolate, and 4 oz glass of white wine
              D - primal fuel with 1 cup frozen strawberries, and 1 1/2 cups of milk

                So this weekend I hoped on the scale and realized I lost a few lbs last week yay me! I dropped below that 200 mark on the scale, which I really needed to do. I also shot my two best scores at my home course this weekend, which resulted in some unhealthy celebrating ... we went to dinner Saturday night and ordered in Sunday evening. These were my two bad meals, and it really took a toll on me, I had less energy and slept terrible. Good news is I walked 18 both days so exercise should help with the excess calories. I'm back on track this morning, thank goodness, a night of bad sleep has taught me a valuable lesson! My husband is really a bad influence, I just have to be stronger. Just gotta remember I'm gonna be lean and fit and he will not be! Maybe then he will decide to start eating better. I don't push it, because its his choice, I provide healthy options, and its up to him whether or not he wants those.

                I don't have fitday stats for the weekend ... nor do I want to see them LOL, but I will probably use it a bit today to help me get back on track.

                  So I need to remember to keep posting here... I stopped journaling for like a week and ended up eating all kinds of bad for me foods while I was feeling under the weather ....

                  I went through my fridge/freeze and pantry this morning and ditched all the non primal foods lingering around that have tempted me into eating poorly. After that I hit the store and stocked up on fresh meats, veggies, and fruits, also some primal friendly snacks such as jerky, dried fruits with no added sugars, and so on.

                  I've decided to ditch the traditional items for breakfast, so I have a lasagna "meatza" in the oven right now .... nice thick meat crush topped with ricotta cheese and crushed tomatoes with a bit of mozzarella cheese. Real simple, and who wouldn't love having "lasagna" for breakfast?

                  I'm off work today because I haven't been sleeping, even with sleeping aids.... ugh.... I'm pretty sure its from the processed wheats and sugars I ate over the weekend ... (husbands birthday bash) Good thing is I realize it and am on track once again.

                  I'll be sure to be checking back into my journal more regularly ... I need to keep myself on track and accountable.

                    Lasagne meatza sounds awesome. I'm going to have to try that.

                    When you say you walk 18. Is that 18 miles? How long does that take?

                      The meatza was awesome! I used crushed tomatoes... I would recommend drained diced tomatoes so it won't be so wet, but still was delicious!

                      And when I say walk 18, I mean walk 18 holes of golf Usually take about 4 hours, so its a nice workout

                        So yesterday was much better, and I finally got some sleep!

                        B - primal fuel with 1 cup almond milk and 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
                        L - meatza with 2 cups of watermelon
                        D - caldo verde (no potato)
                        S - 1 glass of wine and 1/2 bar of dark chocolate

                        Fitday breakdown: 1697 calories, 59% fat, 22% protein, 15% carbs, 4% alcohol

                        Overall not bad, this should be about where I am daily - maybe a tad more protein though

                          So I got settled into my new office last week, and after a week of eating bad but easy food options, I'm back on track.

                          Yesterday was a golf tournament, so there was a lot of drinking going on

                          B - primal fuel with 1 cup almond milk
                          Drinks: 8 oz jack with diet coke
                          S - raw pepper chips with hummus
                          L - Bacon wrapped salmon cakes with asparagus ... I found this recipe online, it was awesome!
                          S - Larabar
                          D - Steak topped with feta and peppers and onions
                          S - Applesauce

                          Fitday breakdown: 1990 calories, 30% fat, 18% protein, 25% carbs, 28% alcohol

                          This was good to look at, because I didn't realize how many calories were in those two drinks .... I'm glad I didn't go for a third!

                            Hi Jess, the bacon wrapped salmon cakes sound awesome! Any chance you could point me to the recipe? We have lots of seasonal salmon coming to the markets now so looking for new recipes. Anything with bacon is winner in my book. Thanks!

                              Primal Matriarch HAS MOVED!!!: Bacon-Wrapped Mini Salmon Cakes with Asparagus

                              And these were awesome. I'm not a big asparagus eater, but when you wrap it in bacon, everything tastes better!

                                They look awesome too - I'll be testing these out as soon as I get my hands on some fresh salmon. Thanks!
