  • Congrats! My DH generally ignores whatever I am doing regarding food and eats what I make him. I cannot imagine him doing a fast that was not directed by his doctor for tests or something.

    • Yeah. My DH would never be able to imagine a fast. He notices what I'm doing, and is (generally) happy to eat what I cook. He thinks I'm a bit quacky, but try hard to support whatever it is I'm doing at the moment

        ditto on the quacky part. DH just chalks most things up to my "artistic personality".

        • I was bored... so I logged in on a Saturday. It likely won't happen too frequently - especially with race season coming up.

          • Eating just a little is TOUGH!

            I'm not thrilled with it. But I will persevere. Here is my meager down day from yesterday:

            Up at 5:30(restless sleep-good bye spring break)

            10:45 1/2C yogurt mix

            3:00 1/2C sauerkraut
            1/3 bratwurst

            6:00 1/2C yogurt, dill, 1T home mayo, mustard
            an artichoke

            9:00 coffee with splenda and milk

            Water: 11 glasses
            Walking: 95"
            Pains: some

            Bed at 10:30

            Even with this small amount, I went over my calorie limit (542 instead of 420). SIRT1 is still supposed to be activated up to 50% of calories, so I am not worried about that. And I'm not a big fan of ONLY calorie reduction for weight loss. So I'm not sure why it bugs me so much that I went over, but it does. Oh, well, only one day.

            The artichoke was a good way to enjoy savory yogurt, instead of sweet, but now that I read the reminders on pebbles thread, I am wondering if I should drop the stevia, too (NO!). Man, I am getting tired of yogurt. My new mantra: It's a medicine, not food. Just slug it down.

            I woke with a headache this morning(very unusual). Wondering if it might have been the splenda in the coffee.
            Okay, got to zoom. Time to take Littlest to practice.

              Might be because you didn't meet a goal. You're a very goal oriented person - my perspective given the projects, the fasting, etc - so it makes sense to me that if you don't hit that goal of 420 calories, you'd be a bit bummed.

              • Sabine, good for you sticking to this even when it is tough! And I have to agree, it is easier to eat nothing than just eat a little - but you are doing it! Well done!

                • Grrr. Our brand spanking new dental insurance is not accepted by our dentist. Honey has a cleaning scheduled for tomorrow. After that, we will have to find a different dentist if anything major needs to be done. Hardly worth it for the 6 more weeks he will be employed, but necessary, in case we have an emergency.

                  Pesky details.

                  I think you are right about the goal thing, Jenn. I will have to be more Zen about it.

                  Coll, oh my goodness, why does it have to be that way?!? Seems so strange that I am HAVING to eat when I don't really (mentally) want to. What universe is this that I've slipped into?

                  • Feeling sorry for myself

                    More pains yesterday, and they started up bright and early this morning.

                    But I DID get a project done- painted a corner of the house eaves. The tricky part, where you are sort of dangling over nothing as you paint. The rest, though lengthy, will not be as intimidating. And I will get lots of up-and-down exercise.

                    Here's how yesterday went:

                    Up at 5:30

                    8:45 1C creamed spinach
                    triclops scramble
                    2 slices bacon

                    1:15 7 lamb meat balls with
                    1T a-1 sauce
                    1/2 of a cucumber in yogurt
                    spicy cream of tomato soup
                    2 small pieces chocolate, 1 macaroon

                    5:45 hash made with corned beef, sweet potato, onion, mushrooms, and cabbage
                    fried in bacon grease
                    2 macaroons

                    9:30 strawberry-rhubarb yogurt

                    Water: 9 glasses
                    Walking: 75"
                    Pains- more

                    Bed at 10:00

                    I did have a very good night's sleep last night. Woke up early feeling perky. And our grocery started carrying full fat yogurt. I won't have to mix in my own cream. Ah, convenience, I love it!

                    I think I am going to investigate FODMAPS this morning.

                    • I can't help but question the suggestion to eat yogurt for your probiotics. I understand it's plentiful in probiotic goodness, but it's also plentiful in sugars, even the unflavored ones. Did your doctor say anything about that? Do you also take an over the counter probiotic?

                      • I am taking a probiotic. At first she suggested Activia, and when I demurred at the sugar, she said plain yogurt would be fine, as long as it had live, active cultures. I found whole milk plain Fage greek yogurt, which has 9g sugars/carb per cup. I have half a cup at a time, so I think it is okay for my carb level. Especially since most carb counts are done by difference calculation, and some nutritionists think the action of the cultures consumes most of the carbohydrate.

                        I had sauerkraut, but looking at the FODMAP list, I see cabbage is on there, so I might not indulge in that for a week.

                        Grrr. I miss my days of blissful good health.

                        • If you're doing dairy anyways it may be worth it to try keffir. I personally don't like it but some do. It's a fermented dairy product that has a lot of probiotic cultures.

                            • I love kefir, fortunately I am able to buy a locally made raw milk kefir. I don't eat it very often because it comes in a huge jar that is hard for me to consume before it goes bad, even though it lasts for a long time. It is like yogurt but it is effervescent - imagine fizzy yogurt. If you can get some of that, I would recommend it.
