    Seriously!?!? Citric acid has MSG??? MSG makes my gut unhappy... Damn food industry! ARGH!!

    it's 4 pm and I still haven't had lunch. Had a quick and minor hunger pang about 3:30, but it quickly went away. I'm worried that I'll get hungry during our walk/park excursions this evening and become ravenous enough to binge... I'm known to myself as a binger... I hope my genes take over when my mind wants to go wonky so I don't binge on garbage and can instead wait it out until the burgers are done.

    And I can't wait to see MyFitnessPal freak out when I close out the day under 1000 calories! muahahahahaha

      Jenn- Don't be glum about no replies. I don't post unless I feel I have something useful to say, but I'm still reading and cheering you on. (Encouragement counting as something useful.)

        well that's what I read, but haven't researched it to know for sure. Now I understand why a person with Celiac has to be such a detective to uncover what's in the foods they eat. There is so much that is hidden that doesn't have to be included on the label. And they have different names for the same bad crap!! Look at all the different ways they hide flour under different names!! Personally I don't get to cranked up about say a tad bit of catsup or something that I don't eat much of. Maybe at some point I may have to get as strict as a celiac...but for now I'm having a hard enough time staying away from the big stuff!!

        Good luck on the eating tonight!!! We're having hamburger patties on the grill too. Everyone else will have a regular bun...I may have one of my Brazillian Cheese Buns. and load it up with tomato, pickles, cheese, bacon...oh yummmmm

            Oh Good GRAVY, Bill, I am soooo tired today! Two nights of staying up too late was two nights too many. I will aim for 9:30 tonight.

            My first day of fasting went well until I finally sat down and ate something. Then something clicked in my brain and I completely overate. I went over my daily calorie goal by almost 300 calories. I know this won't be a problem in the long run though b/c everything I overate was Primal. And what I ended up binging on were those danged Primal Redux protein bars... I don't think I'll be making them again. I enjoy them entirely too much. At dinner time, I would have been ok had I not going back for a second helping of potatoes.

            Ate a big breakfast again today to see if I can make this IF thing work.

            Oh my, I could seriously fall asleep at my desk. Might be time to take a walk.

            Here is yesterday's breakdown. It would have been a perfect day if I had only kept my hands off the protein bars... *le sigh*

              jenn...lack of good sleep & maybe a bit of carb overload may be making you sleepy...

              Wouldn't worry about it too much. Dust yourself off & move on. It'll be ok in the long run. Get up from the desk once an hour or so & stretch or walk around a bit. Maybe that'll help you keep going till bedtime!

              have a great today! And don't forget its Thankful Thursday!! What are you most thankful for?

                Wow... I didn't realize I consumed so many carbs yesterday! Yowza!!

                Today, I am thankful for my health. I might not be where I want to be on the health scale or on the fitness scale or the weight scale, but at least I'm not laid up in a hospital bed with no hope of ever getting there. I am thankful that I am at a point in my life where I can still make the changes I wish to see.

                        Candy, I think Thankful Thursday is something that PrimalCajun and Pebbles created. It's a weekly thing they're starting to do.

                              I actually started doing thankful Thursdays years ago as part of a class I taught. And I have never stopped all of these years. I know that now it is huge around the net. (google) and it seems that everyone does it. I can't remember where I first heard of it either?

                                Primal Protein Bars

                                I have decided I'm not making Primal Protein Bars anymore... they're too yummy and I can't keep myself away from them. I ate two of the danged things last night... And given all that protein, I should NOT be hungry right now, but I am. I always find that if I eat a big dose of protein right before bed, I feel ravenous in the morning, which is why I'll usually eat a carby snack, like berries or something instead. But, I'm out of berries - my strawberries developed a mold problem, so I pitched them.

                                ANYHOW, I made Primal Meatloaf last night (the one in the blog about freezable meals). It is sooooo yummy! I made it in a muffin tin this time instead of a loaf pan b/c it cooks faster that way. 30 minutes in the oven instead of 75. Such a good deal. I have two "balls" for lunch (which is one serving per the recipe) and I'm so tempted to eat them for breakfast instead of my boiled eggs.

                                Greek yogurt might be taking a trip off my menu items list. It's so high in carbs. I know it's not bad, but I am trying to stay below 50 g per day per the carb curve so I can burn off some fat. If I'm going to have a huge carb load, I'd rather it be from veggies.

                                Speaking of veggies, DH and I rediscovered our love for cooked carrots this week. We've had them twice. So yummy. Probably an insulin spiker though. Will have to look.

                                I used yesterday as a rest day b/c i was tired. Today I'm still feeling tired (despite going to bed a bit earlier) and my knees hurt. I'm not sure why my knees hurt. It's not a problem I usually experience. And as a runner it's troubling.

                                My scale was a bastard today. I stepped on hoping to see 213, and it showed 212... then immediately jumped up to 214 and some change. I hate my scale. It's always doing this shit to me. Gets me excited and then dashes my hopes. I called it an asshole and walked away. lol

                                Nothing planned for this weekend except for Saturday night. We have a race party to go to where the driver is trying to earn some cash for the racing season. I'm sure there will be anything but primal foods there. Will have to play it by ear. I'll avoid wheat products for sure. I think last year it was loose meat sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans and chips. I'm sure that's what it'll be this time too. I'll enjoy some of the fare but I will avoid the wheat and consider this my 20% since I've been exceptionally good this week.

                                Sunday morning I think we're planning to go out for breakfast to a buffet. They have excellent breakfasts. I'll get eggs and bacon for certain. Maybe some hashbrowns. I'm pretty confident I can control myself.

                                Hope everyone is having a good Friday thus far. I'm sure I'll be back at some point today.
