  • Oh wow. That looks delicious. I vote sweet potaco too! That's an awesome name.

    • :P Starting to think weekend updates are just not going to happen too much in the summer. I'll probably move to a model of what I ate that wasn't primal over posts that I don't put up. Thankfully this weekend was 100% primal so I'm happy to report that.

      Journal for Yesterday

      B- Coconut milkshake with 1 whole banana, strawberries, coconut milk, cocoa

      L- Leftover Taco Stew (essentially I made more of what went on top of the potaco and took the leftovers for lunch, 1/2 avocado.

      D- 2 chicken thighs, BAS with almond butter dressing, 1 square lindt 90

      Supplements and Exercise were both missed unless you want to count my 2 hours out in the sun cleaning my car as exercise and vitamin D

      So yesterday I had 2 people that I see regularly (Co worker and next door neighbour) walk up to me and comment that they could see the difference in me. Once is a nice to have... but two people made me feel good! Must mean that there is a noticeable difference.

        • Days are so busy lately I can barely keep up!

          Breakfast- Coconut milkshake with 1/2 banana, strawberries and vanilla.

          Lunch- Chicken thigh, avocado

          Dinner- Burger salad from Johnny frescos... Oddly enough when I had to order a side the only one that was paleo was a salad... So I took my 2 salads and mixed them in a bowl. Used pickled peppers as my extra flavour in lieu of any proper dressing options. There was feta on it which isn't really paleo but not really not paleo

          • Not paleo, but acceptable primal. I love feta, although I haven't eaten much of it lately.

            • Feta!
              Feta on tomato slices and broiled!
              Feta, feta, feta!

              Comment


              • Broil the tomatoes first or after you put the feta on?


                So I get home last night and who's at my place? My nutritionist. Yes I have one... Kind of- He's my bum room mates older brother who's a professional natural path. It's all of the benefits of a nutritionist without the bills though. Heck! He even interpreted my bloodwork for me when I got it in may. It was cool seein him again!

                Food for yesterday

                Breakfast- 2 eggs, coconut milkshake with coconut milk, half banana, and cocoa

                Lunch- Burger Salad (I had ordered a second one on tuesday to be consumed as lunch yesterday)

                Dinner- 4 scrambled eggs, Big ass salad

                Supplements- 2tbsp mct, 3000mg of salmon oil

                • After, so the feta gets beautifully melty.

                  Too many weenie jokes ran through my mind. You are a BAD influence, Ecks!

                  Comment


                  • :P The jokes were only implied! Can't hold me to them


                    Food for yesterday

                    Breakfast- Paleo cereal- 1/2 cup walnuts, some strawberries and coconut milk

                    Lunch- 1/2 a grocery store chicken + 1 leg

                    Dinner- chicken wings (burnt to a crisp because I was caught up in a book) and big ass salad

                    Supplements- Salmon oil + MCT oil

                    Exercise- 30 min barefoot walk


                    So I'm feeling good today! Healthy and strong! But at the same time I feel kind of gross- those stretch marks are really highlighting on me today... nasty

                      I'm thinking about just having mine tattooed into tiger stripes.

                      • Hah! Dash! That is the greatest thing ever! A great way to turn something as gross as stretchmarks around into something powerful. Much appreciated!

                        So I'm trying to be better this weekend then I was last weekend about posting stuff and taking supplements and whatnot... Hasn't gone the greatest but here goes.


                        Friday

                        Breakfast- coconut milkshake with half banana, strawberry, coconut milk, vanilla extract (no cocoa). 1 square of dark chocolate

                        Lunch- The other half of that grocery store chicken minus a leg (because I ate it thursday with the first half of the bird), 2 cups mixed baby carrots and yellow peppers

                        Dinner- Went to "montana's" with some old friends. Got steak, 2 shrimp skewers, a salad (with vinegar and mustard in place of dressing), cole slaw, and fried onion "straws". I think besides the veggie oil on the straws I did pretty decent.

                        Supplements- Salmon oil, MCT oil

                        Exercise- Nil

                        Saturday
                        Big ass Breakfast: Big ass paleo breakfast because I don't know when I'm eating again today. 4 scrambled eggs topped with fresh cracked chapoltle and a wasabi aioli (can't take credit for the aioli), panfried steak (in olive oil and duck fat), bacon, mushrooms, picked banana peppers, guacamole, cherry tomatoes.


                        Dinner (At a wedding): Cream of asparagus soup, cocktail salad, chicken breast, 1 split wing, 1 slice of grilled sweet potato, 2 baby potatoes, green beans, couple glasses of wine. Sounds like a long description but in actuality it was a fairly small meal.

                        Supplements: Nil

                        Exercise: Danced like a fiend for a few hours!

                        So it is weigh in Sunday... didn't do so hot for this 2 week span. But still a number to be proud of. On the first I weighed in at 262.4. Today I am 260.6. Only a difference of 1.8lbs but I'll take it! I'd have to do 2lbs a week in order to reach goal on August 5th (first and third sundays fall in funny places because there is a 5th sunday this month). Not sure if I could do 2 a week but that's part of the reason why I set a goal higher than my weekly average. Challenge accepted!

                        Sidebar: I'm lookin much leaner and feeling so much firmer! Just did the "side view" in the mirror and I'm wasting away! I have special plans for an update photo soon. I took some earlier but I've got a one up for a better photo plan!

                            • Ecks! I am just catching up on your journal after being away for a couple of weeks. Your eggs always look so yummy in those food pictures..

                              I'm looking forward to seeing a progress photo! It will add to motivation that I need on this end right now

                              Also, I know about stretch marks. When I got pregnant with my first girl. I got them from the hip all the way up to my breast bone all over my stomach. I'm pretty pale, and these marks, after 6 years, are still a dark purple color-though not quite as big and scary as they were when I was all stretched out. They are absolutely horrible! I love the tiger stripe tattoo idea!

                              Hope you are doing well.

                              • Hey All! Crazy awesome last couple days but I'm back on! Going with the list of what I shouldn't have eaten instead of the list of what I did eat in general (as per usual). Over the last few days everything I shouldn't have eaten was in one meal. Last night with dinner I had a beer, risoto ball (deep fried likely in corn oil), and there was jasmine rice with my meal (was out to dinner with friends). Definitely paid for it today though- grumbly stomach, sharpish pain... then uhh... mudslide? Gross I know. Learned my lesson though!
