    So yesterday was pretty awful, I had a terrible migraine and threw up a lot. I had some nice green tea in the morning and was planning on having eggs when i got to work and a salad for dinner. Well i made it to work but no eggs, I left early and went straight to bed. When i finally emerged my wonderful husband made me steak and cauliflower, I ate half and went back to bed.

    When I got home from the cruise I weighed 167 (at night after eating all day), I weighed myself this morning and I weighed 155.5....water weight and bloat really add a lot!

    Today my plan is:
    B: 1/2 steak cauliflower
    L: Big ass salad with avocado, eggs, onions,lettuce, tomatoes, and olive oil w/ vinaigrette homemade dressing. Chicken breast.
    D: Salmon, spinach in butter, broccoli.
    Play: Krav Maga
    Sleep: I got about 20 hours yesterday into today.

      So 3 days fully 100 % primal, 2 days i had a bad bad bad headache, today I woke up with a ton of energy and feel fantastic!
      I didnt go to krav last night because I had such a terrible headache but I did go for a walk around the neighborhood with my husband and the dog. My hubby has also been fully primal for 3 days but he isnt interested in any of the reasearch about it.
      B: 3 pieces of bacon...1 egg scrambled in bacon fat ( i threw out most of what was made bc i wasnt hungry)
      L: Big ass salad: chicken,lettuce, onions, avocado, hardboiled eggs...homemade balsamic vingaerette dressing.
      D:baked chicken thighs, mushrooms sauteed in butter, caluiflower?
      Play: Planning on going to krav maga but we will see how i feel by the end of the day.
      Sleep:9 hours
      Weight: 155.5

        Hi Kelly,
        I can relate to your journal for several reasons - the big one is your size - I am just 5 feet tall, no, not 5'1", let's not kid myself. In my case I am 175lbs. (there I TYPED it!).
        I was also very thin throughout childhood, teens, gained weight in university, lost it, gained, lost it, but never over a size 10. First time I wore a size 12 was when I was pregnant with my son.
        My tale is one of steadily gaining weight since I had my son; after I had him I was 135lbs, which I would KILL (ok, not really) to be now, went to the gym several times a week, walked with son in his carriage etc., and just steadily gained weight over the past 9 years. I was 165lbs this time last year, and have gained 10 since the summer.
        I can be "good" for weeks or even months, and lose little to NO weight. I feel better, less pain, n o bloating NO stomach issues like heartburn etc, but no actual weight loss.
        Anyway, I am now 2 days Primal, and have walked the dog for 30 minutes up and down hills for 4 days. It rained heavily this morning, but I am hoping to get out again once it clears up.
        I can't do organic, just don't have the $$, can't face the comments from hubby over how expensive it is. I still find I can't eat fruit - this strange psychological thing from my Atkins days.
        Sleep is a definite issue for me - I am awake every night in the middle of the night for some time, up to 2 hours at times. I just recently ordered a Valerian supplement so am hoping that will help.
        Just wanted to say "hi" and that I can really relate to you and congrats on your 3 days!!

          Hi Sue! thanks for stopping by, we're neighbors...im like 10 minutes from the Canadian boarder with Ontario. I cant afford organic at the grocery store so we are budgeting for organic meat from a farm that ships. We have not ordered yet, probably next week when we finish all of the meat we have now. Best wishes going primal!

            My husband just isn't supportive of organic food or this way of eating anyway. I think if I ever actually LOST a significant amount of weight, he would be more of a believer, but I've just gained weight, I have very high blood pressure, although it's medicated and a host of other health problems. He is about 30lbs over weight himself, eats junk every night, makes no effort at exercise, but you know how it's different for men!
            I used to cross the border to get wings at the Anchor Bar and Grill.
            Made it for a 3rd day! Hope you're doing well!

                  Congrats on resisting temptation - I know it can be hard - people seem to get so INSULTED when you don't eat the way they eat at social functions.
                  Doing Ok, had to leave my older dog at the vet's for some medical care- he is really ill, so I was sad and started thinking of all the things I could eat on the way home or later today - fish and chips; popcorn; bagel etc but am BBQing some chicken breasts instead to throw on a salad. I absolutely LOVE Ranch dressing - I make my own with just mayo/buttermilk and some spices.
                  I made the mistake of weighing myself yesterday and was up 2lbs from the day before - I think it's just a "blip" and have to be careful to NOT weigh myself ever day. I did get the dog out for a 30 minute walk.
                  It's beautiful and sunny here - hope it's the same there!

                    It is beautiful and sunny here too! Im sorry to hear about your pooch...I hope he is ok. Yey, for not giving into temptation plus BBQ chicken tastes wayyyy better than those other foods. Thankfully they all understood why I wasn't eating the treats, I think only 2 people ate cookies and brownies so I wasn't the only one. "they" always say not to weigh yourself everyday and to go off how your body looks, so it probably is just a "blip". I feel great but I have a long way to go, I want to me toned and fit into my size 4 jeans again. Right now im a size 8/10 and i can get my size 4s on and almost buttoned with a major muffin top lol. We are going to my In-laws for dinner tonight, she called and asked if i could eat this and that because she didnt want to mess up my diet

                        Today is my 8th day primal, 1 full week down. I feel great and temptations are getting a lot easier, Yesterday I bought a dark chocolate bar 75% cocoa and its yummy! had 1 square on the way home.

                        We went grocery shopping last night, went a little over budget due to paper products and i wanted berrys. My step dad made me almond butter, its ok but I'm not sure what to do with it. I used to eat PB by the spoon full but almond butter isn't as smooth, any suggestions?

                        B: Coffee w/ HWC
                        L: homemade corned beef(not store bought processed), cabbage, carrots
                        D: grilled steaks, grilled bell peppers, cauliflower mash for me and cauliflower plain for the hubs
                        P: Krav Maga
                        Rest: 9 1/2 hours
                        Weight: Between 154.5-155..one day its 154.5 then its 155..I know I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday!

                          Kelly, step AWAY from the scale!! At least give yourself a week. I find if I am up it can ruin my day and sometimes I think "f*ck it" and eat something forbidden.
                          Hubby and I fought last night around dinner time and I left; got home at 11:30 (went to local casino, I know, I know, BAD, but I won $1600!!!!), and ate some bologna and a couple of slices of cheese. When I was out I was sorely tempted by a bagel or other take out, but I resisted, and felt really good about it today.
                          I feel "thinner", but I think that is bc I am not feeling bloated rather than actual weight loss. At some point I have to do my measurements, but I can usually tell by how my clothes fit. Most of my weight is in my tummy - my butt, legs etc are all not bad, just this buddha belly.

                          B: eggs and bacon
                          L: salad with BBQ chicken and ranch dressing, pumpkin seeds a few almonds
                          D: Not sure, either chicken and bok choy stir fry or with a salad

                          What's Krav Maga???

                            I know I know but I want to see the number go down! lol I will not weigh myself until next Monday. Krav Maga is Isreali combat fighting, self defense. Its a form of martial arts, its super fun and I love it but if it wipes me right out. Whoo Hoo for $1600! I get excited when I win like $20 lol My clothes are fitting looser as well and I have the same problems with carrying it around my tummy,butt, and thighs. Your meals look yummy today, I'm going to make some BBQ chicken this week but I need to find a good primal BBQ recipe that doesn't include sugar.

                            I've been really good about following the diet and so has my husband, he made dinner last night steak and cauliflower mash. It was super yummy! I was too tired/lazy to go to Krav yesterday so I am going today instead.

                            B:1 egg fried in butter 4 pieces of bacon Green Tea
                            S: Coffee with creamer (tim hortons)
                            L: Tuna w/ mayo Salad with bacon, cucumbers, lettuce, tomato & homemade balasamic vin. dressing
                            D: Grilled chicken legs & grilled bell peppers.
                            P/M:Krav Maga
                            Rest:7 hours
                            W:155

                              ok, all i saw was BACON COFFEE! and was like, they make that? must have it

                              on serious note, sounds like you are doing great...

                              and if you want something to do with the almond butter, have you had the banana pancakes? its one banana, one egg, a table spoon (or a little more) of almond butter and some nutmeg/cinnamon all mixed up in a bowl, it turns to almost like a batter, then just fry it in a pan with butter...its almost the same texture as pancakes and taste awesome! my wife makes a butter drizzle to go on it, its melted butter, splenda brown sugar (thats optional), cinnamon, nutmeg...

                              its a good breakup from eggs and bacon in the morning, though we usually still have eggs and bacon with it

                                Insane Grok: Bacon Coffee yum! lol Those pancakes sound delicious but I'm allergic to bananas, I haven't always been but about 5 or 6 years ago I was eating a banana and my mouth became itchy and started to get red bumps on it. I miss bananas they are so delicious and satisfying...ok now I'm craving bananas!

                                I found a recipe for a primal pumpkin brownie:
                                Ingredients:
                                1 cup almond butter
                                cup mashed pumpkin or other squash, canned or steamed
                                1 egg
                                1/3 cup honey
                                1 tsp baking soda

                                Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well. Pour into a greased 8 x 8 in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Serves 8.

                                I'm going to make it this weekend.
