  • I know what you mean - maybe it is a winter primal thing? I get hungry, but it's basically a pleasant feeling and I'm not in a hurry to make it go away.

    But seeing that picture of a perfect egg makes me want to eat one!

    • Hmm... Could be a winter thing... I don't know. I semi suspect that it's just another step in Whole30 though I don't see it on the timeline.

      Whole30 Day13

      Breakfast- 2 Eggs (Double yolked), 2 chicken wings, Guacamole (bout half an avocoado's worth because I made it with too much lemon and couldn't finish it)

      Lunch- Left over supper from day 12 (Ground beef, caramelized onions, garlic, wilted spinach and mushrooms cooked in duck fat and chicken broth and topped with an egg and paprika.) and a 2 cups of mixed yellow bell peppers and cucumber

      Supper- 2 small steaks in a peper rub and balsamic vinegar, big ass salad with olive oil, apple cider vinegar and lemon dressing, and molokaia (a middle eastern soup composed of minced green molokaia leaves and beef broth)

      Supplements- the usual

      Exercise- 10 minutes elliptical, upper body weights, and 1000 metre row at the gym. 50 Abmat situps at home


      So I finally picked up an abmat yestrerday. They're 40$ + tax from rogue but 14$ plus tax from fitness depot... guess where I went? Couldn't be happier with it!

        • You're lucky I don't live anywhere near you, because I would seriously be showing up for dinner all of the time.

            :P I'd be more than happy to have you over for dinner!

            Whole30 Day16

            Breakfast- 2 Eggs (both double yolked) scrambled with some of the leftover pork and onions combo left over from my tacos wrapped in 2 lettuce wraps and topped with guacamole, 3 slices of bacon

            Lunch- Grilled chicken on a salad (out at kelsey's restaurant). I used fresh lemon instead of their dressing

            Supper- Steak and a massive salad

            Supplements- 2000mg of Salmon oil. I skipped the vit D because I took my supplements late in the day.

            Exercise- loading gear in and out of my church


            So I did a boob thing last night... Hadn't had coffee in forever but for some reason felt it a good idea to have a small cup at church around 7pm. Now I haven't had a coffee in about a week and a half close to 2 weeks. Coffee never really effected me much at night. 20 minutes after drinking it though I felt wired... like seriously wired. Anyways long story short that coffee definitely had a HUGE impact on my sleep last night... as in I didn't sleep deeply and woke up frequently with the thought that I hadn't actually fallen asleep yet. Gotta keep my eye on that coffee stuff from now on I guess!

            • Whole30 Day17

              Breakfast- 2 Eggs (total of 3 yolks) scrambled and eaten in 2 lettuce wraps with some avocado dip, 3 slices of bacon, Decent helping of steak

              Lunch- Steak, and a cup of mixed cucumbers and tomato

              Supper (out for dinner)- Pho Soup (beef broth with beef strips, beef tendons, and some bean sprouts)

              Supplements- 2000mg of salmon oil (I dropped it down from 3000 because I don't feel like I need 3000 anymore), and 6000ui of Vit D.

              Exercise- (The most exciting part of my day really!) 255lbs one rep max of dead lifts (and all of the dead lifts it took to warm myself back up to 255), 50 abmat sit ups.



              So it's been ?2 and a half? or so years since I've even touched an Olympic bar. The last time I did dead lifts I PR'd at 260. I'm so happy to have hit 255! I tried 260 and couldn't do it but damn am I close! What makes it better is that I was heavier than the bar the last time I did dead lifts so I'm even more happy to be lighter than the bar I was picking up!

              Sidebar- It's -14 degrees Celsius outside today (7 degrees Fahrenheit for the american's that read my journal). Bloody freakin cold but I love it!

                    • That stuffed chicken thigh looks heavenly!! How do you make it?

                      It sure sounds as though you are doing well - and well done on the deadlift!! That is exciting - almost to your PR already! Shouldn't take you long at all to pass that by and leave it in the dust! You are making me think about getting some exercise going again. I have been doing more walking but we all know there is more to being in good shape than a couple strolls...

                      • I like your cherry tomato floret on top of the dressing.

                        • @Sioban I've gotta bring the porn... it's the only thing bringing you ladies back here

                          @Coll- Sweat yellow onion and garlic in bacon fat. Toss in ground pork that has been marinated in tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, paprika, crushed chilies and salt and saute til cooked. Flip chicken thigh up side down and carefully remove the bone... I like to cut some slits in the chicken thigh parallel to where the bone was along the entire thigh... helps it roll. Put the cooked pork mixture onto one edge of the thigh and fold/roll it over. Wrap the thigh in bacon and bake at 350ish for 40mins ish.

                          @Sabine It's for the look. I thought it added a nice touch too!

                          Whole30 Day20 (That makes today day 21! Single digit countdown!)

                          Breakfast- 2 eggs, scrambled, topped with avocado dressing and wrapped in 2 romane lettuce leaves. 3 slices of bacon, and a decent chunk of steak

                          Lunch- Leftover steak, 1C mixed baby carrots and cherry tomatos, and 3 small apples

                          Supper (out with family at arabesque)- BBQ chicken (marinated in lemon juice, pepper and olive oil according to the menu), and a salad with olive oil and lemon dressing.

                          Supplements- The usuals

                          Exercise- Nope

                          So I'll be headed for ottawa this weekend to see my buddy in his new house. It'll be a lot of fun! He's scheduled a CrossFit workout for our group at their local CF Box. It'll be my first time in a full sized CF gym that isn't CFK so it'll be a lot of fun! Hope my chest heals by then... It's still torn up from my workouts this week.

                          • I'd love to try CF. The nearest one is over an hour away. And I can't believe I'm saying that. I used to think those people were crazy. Now I am one.

                            • Broke my Whole30 this weekend to toast my buddies (surprise) wedding. No regrets at all! So although I'm not restarting this is what I achieved from my whole30: Discipline- I've learned to really be critical and aware of what I eat even further. Self Control- I've put a stop to food without breaks and am in full control of how much I eat. Good Sleep- I've finally taken control of my adrenals. A coffee at 7PM will now give me a rough night for sleep so I do make myself conscious about the time of day when I reach for a coffee. All in all I'm grateful for all that I have learned during my Whole22 (That being 22 days of eating whole). No regrets breaking early and more than happy to look forward to the next stages of my paleo journey!


                              Had an AMAZING weekend! Went up to Ottawa to visit my buddy. Got to his place before he got home so I hung out with friends that I had driven up with. Buddy gets home, holds up his finger with a new wedding ring on it and introduces his girlfriend as his wife- crazy son of a bitch got eloped! In true fashion of exactly how he would I don't think anyone was surprised but definitely caught off guard. So this weekend was his wedding celebration- good food, good drinks and a lot of time with people made the drive up worth it! Oh! The drive up! apparently if I had left 30 minutes I would have been part of an 80 car pileup on the 401. Crazy! It did add 2 and a half hours to the drive though trying to squish the 401s traffic onto the 115. Oh well... no one dead apparently. 5 to hospital 2 in critical condition.

                              The drink I broke my Whole30 on? Innis & Gunn Oak aged beer with a spiced rum finish. Absolutely amazing! And you know a beer is special when it comes individually boxed. Delicious! And no regrets.

                              • Been hobbling around all day. That CF Workout that I did on sunday destroyed my legs! Hurts soo good! Bought a foam roller and a lacrosse ball to massage the legs but I think nothing will work until I get in the hottub at the gym and melt.
