    • I weighed in at 187.4 this morning

      I ate well yesterday ... lots of veggies and meat and fat. Busy making burgers for lunch and going to eat them on a bed of sauteed cabbage. Off house hunting this afternoon .... long hours on the road today. Got 4 different places to give a once over and see if any are close to what we are looking for. Can't qualify for a loan until early Feb but we are trying to get a feel for what is out there and which areas are good for what we need.

      • Pretty good day overall.

        We drove all afternoon looking at properties. Those were just 4 different places within the same area. Stressful and yet fun too. Inbetween wondering if we are going to be able to afford to buy anything here!

        I had an apple and chunk of cheese while on the road. Dinner was a big bowl of salad and a burger patty. And a piece of 70% chocolate with orange flavouring - nice, but not addictive (thank heavens!!) We are going to have a mug of turmeric tea in a bit and then it is off to bed for me.

        My macros seem pretty good to me :-
        Calories 1557
        Fat 109 g
        Carbs 51 g
        Protein 92.4 g

        This is the best I could do - how on earth do you measure what you have in a salad?! I just figure it is all good and don't worry about trying to figure out how much of each individual ingredient I get - too fussy for me! I just figure out the dressing and odd bits like blue cheese or nuts that I may add, since those add up quickly.

          I have the same hair thing going on! After I went primal/low carb I had significant hair loss, which was really scary but apparently normal. Now it's all growing in and I have so many little short hairs that I actually sprang for a kind-of-expensive hairspray to tame them down. (Catwalk - great stuff) I have dreams of a thick head of hair, which probably won't happen, but a decent head of hair is perfectly okay too. At my age I am not going to complain as long as I actually have hair.
          Same here, lost a lot of hair after going paleo/primal; but I went to the hairdresser last week and she said I had very fine but LOTS of hair, so it's finally getting better .

          Happy Newyear Coll! Looks like the new year has started well for you! Good luck on your goals this year .

          • Thanks Candy I am feeling good at the moment -hopefully I can keep my momentum up and my eyes on the goals I have instead of getting kyboshed by sugar along the way! Right now I am doing pretty well with the sugar thing, but I know I need to stay off it or it'll suck me dry and spit me out!!! The sugar demon - nasty thing that!

            Fortunately I have always had very thick hair so the amount I have lost has not left me balding!! I was at the hairdresser recently too and she was commenting on how healthy my hair was, particularly as my hair is so long. I was encouraged by that.
            I have thought about trying to go poo-less, but I am not ready to try that yet. I think I need to get moved and settled before I try something like that ... dunno why but it sounds daunting to have to deal with nasty locks for a while. My hair is one of the few things that I feel looks good on me and the thought of that looking all stringy and oily just doesn't sound like a good idea at the moment.

            Breakfast:_ Cup of tea with cream and stevia
            Lunch: BAS and burger patty with cheese and another cup of black tea with cream and stevia. 3 pieces of 85% chocolate.
            Dinner: Spaghetti squash with spaghetti sauce (made with grass fed beef, and ground elk - a friend blessed us with some deer and elk meat!) Everyone chowed down and I made enough to freeze at least 4 meals for lazy days. I have one more spaghetti squash left from our garden this year ...
            DH and I will have our turmeric tea in a little while. Exercise is not happening yet But I am doing plenty around the house what with laundry, cooking and cleaning and chicken chores... We are thinking of getting a storage unit so that I can pack up the stuff that we don't need at the moment and start moving things out without the pressure of closing dates etc. Will also make it easier to keep it clean and tidy for when the landlord starts bringing people around to see the place. Not looking forward to that. I am hoping that the snow and ice are going to melt off completely the next few days as the weather is supposed to warm up a bit. There are bits and pieces of tools and toys that are embedded in snow and ice and I want to get them out before the next snow storm hits!

            DD is so fragile at the moment. I think the impending move and looking for a home and missing her old buddies is all compounding to make her miserable at the moment (and a touch of cabin fever!) Hopefully we can get out for a walk tomorrow - DS fell today and twisted his ankle/ foot so he was hobbling around for most of the day. We were supposed to go for a walk today and when that didn't work out there were tears.

            • I tried going poo-less and I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I am just too much of a girly girl - I missed washing my hair. I just like the lotions and potions. My hair actually looked okay - I rinsed it every day and it didn't look greasy. But...but...I just like shampooing my hair. I have, however, stuck with making my own toothpaste.

              • I did go poo-less, then over the holidays was using (SLS-, paraben- & fragrance-free) shampoo again. I've gone poo-less again this weekend. I "wash" my hair with sodium bicarbonate mixed with a little water, let that sit for a minute and rinse thoroughly. Then I rinse it with 2 cups of water with a few tablespoons of ACV, let that sit a few minutes and then rinse well again, until I don't smell like vinaigrette anymore . The ACV makes the hair really soft and shiny, I used that instead of conditioner when using shampoo too!

                      • Hee hee! I had thought something similar when I first saw the word!! It has some unfortunate connotations Candy, thanks for sharing how you do it ... I may just pluck up the courage sometime. I have used organic and chemical free shampoo for years after finding out how much horrific stuff is in cosmetics etc.

                        • Busy day, good day too though high maintenance kids too which can be exhausting sometimes.

                          No breakfast aside from a mug of tea with cream. Lunch was tea with cream, sauteed cabbage with a burger patty chopped into it. Dinner 1/4 cup macadamias, BAS, shared a steak with DH with mushroom sauce, and a little welsh cheddar sprinkled on. Kids and I went for a walk at the lake - got to walk over the stream that is frozen over and explore the other side that we usually can't get to. Got to bed late last night and I need to hurry or tonight will be late too. See ya, and sleep tight!

                          • I'm going to try the ACV rinse - I could use more shine. I'm going to switch shampoo to something much more chemical-free when I use up the monster bottle of whatever it is I'm using now. I'm trying to get up my courage to give up those addicting little bottles you buy at the drugstore that magically turn your gray hairs blond. Funny that now that I am thinner and younger looking I am thinking of going gray, which will undoubtedly make me look older. But I really, really want to have very healthy hair, and now that it is growing in thicker I want to encourage hair health. If I start letting it grow in now, I could get it cut short at the end of next summer and it will be pretty much done with. Okay, that's enough about my hair on someone else's journal! I do go on!

                            • Anytime Siobhan! I understand ... lol, I do the same. I would encourage you to go gray!! I think there is something really attractive about a woman who is in good physical condition and not ashamed of her age. Just my opinion of course... plus the cocktail of chemicals and their repercussions on your health are not worth an artificial hair colour!! You have made so many changes to further your health, seems like this would be a natural next step! Go for it I say!

                              • OK, been really 'busy' relaxing the last few days. DH is out of town on an annual business training conference and I have been reading novels, lying around and not doing much. Yesterday I had the munchies, as a result of going to bed too late 3 nights in a row! Stupid! I know! Especially when DH is away and I could be hitting the sack nice and early. Had a better day today after a better nights sleep. Cold here at the moment ... definitely no going outside without bundling up a bit, I think my gloves are getting old as my fingers were pretty sore after a while when I was doing chores. They are ancient so maybe it is time to retire them ....

                                DH gave me some cash the other day ... what a treat! WHen you are a stay at home mom and you've been struggling financially you don't get to see the likes! So I ordered a food processor It arrived today and I am pumped. This should make the veg prep for meals so much quicker and easier than having to cut everything with a knife! No excuse now for not eating veg huh?! I have been doing much, much better with eating veg anyway. It does make quite a difference to how I feel and how quickly I get hungry again.

                                I was disappointed today as I made kale chips for lunch with sausage and the chips just didn't turn out well, and they were really strong tasting. Not nice... I had a little kale and then had an apple and cheese to get the flavour out of my mouth. I had two pieces of dark chocolate. Black tea with cream. I made strawberry souffle for dinner, very filling! DS loved the smell but hated the texture. Honestly, it is exhausting trying to find something that we all can eat ... he is much better than he was, but we still have a long way to go!

                                I haven't been logging my intake on fitday and am feeling a bit at a loss for how I am doing. Need to do that again starting tomorrow. Otherwise my intake sneaks up and up and so does my weight. Going to try making my experimental denim trial run moccasins tomorrow, or at least get started on them. I have an old pair of DH's jeans that are providing the fabric ... I have been putting it off for ages - seems to be how I try to avoid doing something new. It always takes me a while to try a new skill. I have been doing much better with trying new recipes and now I need to get my butt into gear and try the moccasins too. I am going to put a couple pairs of really warm socks on before I make the pattern as these need to be large enough to wear layers for the winter. I guess I'll have to make others for warmer weather...
