    Here I am on Day 17 of Whole 30!

    The crazy meatloaf creation worked out fine, and I'll have fun nibbling the leftovers later on. Today I stuck to the "meat + raw fruit n' veg" formula and didn't suffer any cravings, hunger or bloat.

    Breakfast: 2 eggs, scrambled, with veggies thrown in.
    Lunch: A can of tuna, mixed with homemade mayo and a couple of hardboiled eggs, eaten with some celery sticks, and a green smoothie.
    Supper: Meatloaf with homemade ketchup, a few of my new homemade dill pickles, green smoothie.

    Green smoothies still rock, since I can get my veggies without having to think about it - I just mix 'em up and pound 'em back.

    Drinks: Coffee with coconut milk, water.

    I stayed away from the starchy things and the cooked veggies, choosing only raw today, and that seemed to agree with me the best. No mad hunger, no cravings, no intrusive food-thoughts while at work ("gee, I could really go for xyz", etc.)

      Day 18 of Whole 30!

      Stuck with "meat + raw veg + fruit" per my usual, and had quite the uneventful day. Mood, energy, and focus are still all good. I think my skin's feeling a bit smoother on my face.

      I sure would love to eat out, but blarg! I'd just go in someplace, plan on getting a "safe" menu item, and then they'd bring out a basket of bread or something and I wouldn't be able to refuse it, and then there would be an Incident and I would scare people with my epic bread consumption and there would be Talk about town and possibly Gossip and then I'd be here confessing to y'all that I cheated.

      I AM planning on a cheat day, just not right now.

        Day 19! Holy crap, do I only have 11 more days to go?

        Soooo today I had:
        Breakfast - Coffee with coconut milk and 1 homemade sausage patty
        Lunch - A big ol' burger (No bun of course!) with homemade ketchup, pickles and mayonnaise, and a spinach n' fruit salad (no dressing)
        Supper - Paleo beef stew with parsnips, carrots and fennel - a big heapin' bowl of it, and a handful of cherries for dessert.

        Beverages - coffee, water

        And that was today!

            Spubba, I love it...Hostess in the black. Yes...only 10 pounds gained on your hiatus from primal is outstanding. I will look forward to reading your diary and seeing your progress.

              Day 21 of Whole 30! I skipped posting here yesterday because I fell into the Downton Abbey Time Vortex, not because I cheated. Oh no! I wouldn't do that! Yesterday was... oh, let's see... leftover sausage, coffee, leftover chicken soop, salad, fruit, and some deviled eggs! There's nothing like a good deviled egg to kill the cravings, right? Except when you realize it's Friday night and you can stay up as late as you want, so you make it all the way to 10:30 p.m. and that's only because you felt like snacking and gnawed on some homemade beef jerky.

              This morning, it was homemade sausage and a handful of cherries... not much though, I wasn't terribly hungry. Turned on the TV, which I should have realized was going to be a mistake, because it's Saturday morning, but I am stupid and a creature of habit and was hoping there would be some GOP candidate out there that I could self-righteously laugh at through a mouthful of pig. Although I really shouldn't mock someone who campaigns so selflessly and sincerely for the sanctity of open marriage. I am quite liberal in my views, after all.

              I expected the news. I got The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. The most universally panned movie of all time! I was amazed! I never saw this thing before. I made it through 5 minutes. That's 5 minutes of my life that I'd like to have back, please, by the way.

              This is how they strong-arm you into buying cable, isn't it?

              Well, I won't buy cable, because I am cheap and also overworked and I spend all my money on as good a quality of food as I can muster, and certainly not fancy electronic doodads, not me, oh no. That 9x12 Wacom over there? Totally not mine.

              So instead of watching TV, although I may go for more Downton later today - it's like a drug, a cheap, worthless, tawdry drug wrapped up in linen handkerchiefs and served on a silver platter alongside tiny sandwiches with their crusts cut off - I'll probably spend at least part of today cooking, and restocking the fridge with foods I know I'm allowed to eat. I'm roasting a chicken and another meatloaf and trying a carnitas recipe I found. That, plus my usual salads and smoothies, should keep me going for at least a week or two.

                I have mad love for your writing style. The bit about self-righteously laughing at the GOP candidate through a mouthful of pig had me rolling. Humor may be the most important ingredient for long term success in...well, anything really. Your writing style along with your crazy-amazing art skills have given me the jealouses. *I* celebrate when my stick figures have the same sized feet instead of the lopsided clown foot-Chinese bound foot combo that usually results.

                    Day 23 of Whole 30! 1 more week to go. I'm doing fine and I still haven't slipped, but I'm going to admit I miss the stevia in my coffee! That's one thing I just can't get used to.

                    Delicious roast chicken for breakfast, and a banana/cacao nib (raw) smoothie. Dunno what's for lunch yet. I'm going to turn this pork shoulder here into some carnitas, which should be awesome. I'll do that later today. I think I'm going to shred the rest of the chicken and use it in something else, like chicken salad maybe. I love cooking on the weekends!

                    I've been turned on to the "Black March" movement and plan to participate. Of course, buying Mark's books DON'T COUNT, unless he turned himself into a media industry lobbyist overnight and I didn't know about it. Doesn't sound like him though.

                    No movies, books, or games for a month? Sounds like extra time for LHT to me...

                      My refusal to purchase my single Martha Stewart will hardly go noticed, but I do sympathize with the idea.

                        Love the idea of Black March. Arguing w/ hubby about it right now (apparently he wants a long awaited book coming out in March for our vacation). I am so sick of how greedy people only care about how they can make more money instead of what the fall out of such laws mean for our freedom (I don't download any of this stuff BTW - If I want it I go buy it).

                          I don't mean to be Debbie Downer, but Black March looks exactly like when people protest gas prices by not purchasing on x day or whatever. Everyone still makes their purchase and retailers know they will, so it's not really much of a protest. :S

                            Apathy is the easiest policy, sure, but I feel better about myself and I'm happier when I'm able to vote with my pocketbook. So it matters... to me.

                              I don't pirate things either. If I want something I buy it legit. I developed a taste for indie music and books some time back and like to buy direct from the artists/writers. Once you get away from the top 40 garbage, that's when things get interesting.

                                And speaking of indie music, I sign off for the night with a track from a friend of mine whom I met while livestreaming a comic:
