  • Okay, I'm back

    Here's yesterday:

    Up at 5:30

    6:30 taco meat, tomato, cheese, avocado-yum!

    10:00 1 bratwurst
    homemade sauerkraut(okay, apparently I have added cabbage back in, too, not just cauliflower)
    primal cheesecake with raspberry jam(must stop this-it sets off cravings)
    macaroons

    12:00 cheese
    liverwurst

    3:00 1/2C seaweed salad

    6:30 lamb chop with A-1 sauce
    cauliflower roasted with coconut oil
    sugar-free jello

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: no
    Pains: yes, 23

    Bed at 10:00- fell asleep on the couch about 9:30

    You may have noticed I forgot my yogurt. I usually have it in the evenings, and I was too full, and then dozed off. So, I'm going to have two portions today. Oh, joy.

    The weights are going steadily downward. I get excited when I love at my graphs. They're very encouraging.

    Today I am turning all the little silk flowers I made yesterday into hair combs, and making lemon bars for the After-party. And buying a rotisserie chicken to take camping tomorrow(all for me!). And doing the errands, the dishes, packing, taking my walk, and meeting with friends tonight. Whew! I may not have TIME to eat yogurt twice.

    I watched the Michael Mosley documentary on pbsDOTorg yesterday. Well worth an hour of your time. It will be up on their site through May 5th. I'm going to get honey to watch it, too. And look for his book. There is so little money to be made, promoting ADF/5:2(no real products to sell, after all, just eat less once in a while), that I feel I should support those who are getting the information out.

    And it is nice that it works with any kind of food choices. I am partial to primal low-carb, but those who follow something different, can still use the principle.

    Naturally, I have only been doing this for a month. I am still in the honeymoon phase. We'll see if I keep it up, and what my results are. But so far, more positives than negatives, I would say.

    • OK. I'm way behind. What are "Pains: Yes, 23"? Sounds like a lot of pain.

      P.S. I don't think you're going to have time for two yogurts today!

      • I saw somewhere that someone added whipped cream to their yogurt (about half and half) and a bit of sweetener (well actually a bit of SF pudding)to make it more palatable. I was going to try this for DH but he has gotten used to the taste (well I get him the kind with the fruit in the bottom so whats not to like) and he adds some "granola" (nuts and seeds-he thinks is granola). Anyway it might help on the up day yogurts.

        • I've been having some mystery pains, which may be Irritable Bowel Syndrome. My doctor put me on probiotics, and told me to have yogurt at least once per day. I'm tracking them (with a cute little stitch counter, slung around my neck on a string) so that I can be more objective about them. For instance, I have only had 5 pains so far. So when I have one, I don't have to let my imagination run wild, I can say something like, 'oh, a few more than yesterday,' or 'good, I was up to 8 by this time yesterday.'

          • Well, down to 0 pains sounds like a plan. By like tonight. Pain is not too useful, I find.

                      • Mine wore a short dress for her junior year prom. But she is also reasonably tall so she didn't have hemming issues with either the dress she ended up wearing to her senior prom or the one she ordered that came a week late and she wore to the orchestra concert.

                        • Back from camping!

                          Quick Catch-up

                          Friday Food:
                          yogurt-chicken broth-spinach salad-cabbage with cheese- toppings from pizza slices-more yogurt

                          Saturday Food:
                          eggs-bacon-chicken legs-cauliflower-cucmber-salmon-cheese-almonds-marshmallow-chocolate

                          Sunday Food:
                          yogurt-spinach salad-liverwurst

                          Sleep: Good, even out in the woods
                          Pains: okay, but I think that marshamllow and chocolate was a mistake
                          Walking: Plenty!

                          Extras: Time on the beach walking barefoot, having our shoes 'stolen', joyous reunion with Honey, much teenager talk about prom details. A good weekend.

                          Tomorrow I am going to try a regular fast, instead of this eat-just-a-little business. It is getting old. I will take an extra probiotic, to make up for the yogurt loss. (Another brand. The one I am taking only has one type of flora, and I have to feel that in probiotics, variety would be good. I went and bought a brand that has a combo of ten different critters.)

                          Off to catch up on journals!

                            For those of you following the Chica Saga, here's the latest. Our neighbor told us that he is buying a house in Mexico, moving down there with all three dogs, and divorcing his wife. He said he'd be coming to get Chica 'soon' to take her to get her shots for international travel.

                            Not sure what my reaction to this is, yet. (If it happens.) The girls want to see if we can buy Chica and keep her. But I never wanted another dog, I just wanted to keep her safe. I like her, I'm liking her more and more(except for the up-your-nose licking habit!) but I don't love her. And the thought of trying to buy her (money outlay!) and committing to a lifetime deal, is not springing to the forefront of my mind with ease.

                            Ugh.

                            I'm looking forward to NOT eating today. I think I have a good routine going for Down Days, of <400 calories, but eating just a little is harder for me than refraining completely. I've planned a bunch of projects for today, to keep me busy, and not thinking about food, and am anticipating a good experience.

                            Yesterday I did this:

                            Up at 5:30

                            9:00 2 Eggs Benedict- Canadian bacon, creamed spinach, egg, hollandaise

                            11:30 tomato-veg soup
                            lox with cream cheese and capers

                            6:15 salami, creamed spinach, Swiss cheese

                            7:30 Dripping Chicken Thighs (from the book, 'Fifty Shades of Chicken'- hilarious!) with
                            onions, honey(from my friend's hives), butter
                            1/2 sweet potato with butter
                            dark chocolate

                            Water: 11 glasses
                            Walking: 40"
                            Pains: too many! 42
                            Way too much time in the car

                            Bed at 11:00

                            The hollandaise is from Mark's Sauce book. Yum, yum, yum....I love that stuff. I'll be doing a repeat tomorrow for breakfast, because it is just too good!

                            Honey is at his low point for recent weight. He says he's going for at least one more week. I have broken into the 180s after my Down Days (But I am counting after Up Days as my official weight, so that's still just a tease. Still, it's there.).

                            Can't remember if I mentioned here that I am hoping for an average loss of one pound per week. That would put me at my target by Christmas.

                            • You have been very good to Chica and made her life better over the last few months. Whatever happens, it is her life and her destiny.

                              Congrats to you and Honey for your numbers!

                                At least she has gotten some good meals and snuggling out of it!
