    • Work, school starting, and church. Sort of trying to back off my use of the net, but it's not working so greatly. I did start a new position at work. Phew! I've got to be walking somewhere close to about 2 miles a day at work going back and forth to answer stuff. The good news is that the job is keeping me busy, so I don't have too much time to get into trouble.

      • I also discovered a way to make some homemade chocolate candies with coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla, and whatever nuts I have in the fridge.

            Alessandra's version of Judg Fudge, eh? Have you tried stevia in there? (The stuff from a bottle, not the packets with the additives.)

            • Judg, I have not tried that yet. Hmmm. I like the coconut sugar though. I only make a little bit of it at a time. It's pretty good stuff and I like the fact that it only takes me like a few minutes to make it for a snack later on in the day.

              • I actually haven't found the coconut sugar yet. I use maple syrup, honey, or apple butter when I don't mind getting the sugar hit, or when stevia just won't do. (Stevia in espresso just doesn't work, if you ask me.)

                • Mmm... maple syrup is weapon of choice for me if I need to sweeten something. So good!

                  • Ecks, I LOVE maple syrup! It's kind of pricey here, but I do buy it when I can. It's mostly for Gabi's gluten free pancakes.

                    9/10/12
                    B: 2 1/2 pcs bacon (gave half to Roxy), 2 eggs with approx 2tbsp sour cream. 1 probiotic, 1 thyroid, 1 multi, 2 flaxseed, drank water
                    S: 1 oz macadamia nuts, 2 bars 85% Lindt
                    L: Salad with homemade dressing, leftover "spaghetti" meat sauce (it's completely primal, not wheat or grains)
                    S: Pork rinds and more sour cream (The Nancy's sour cream with those is epically delicious), some batter from making carrot cake style cheesecake and some gluten free windmill cookie pieces (tasted them to make sure they'd go for the crust)
                    D: Didn't happen, was too full from taste testing stuff for the cheesecake. Just as well since I had crossfit that night.
                    Exercise: Crossfit "Eva" PHEW, she kicked my butt! Arms are still somewhat sore today. 10 min trainer abs. 12 min walk with dog in the morning.

                    9/11/12
                    B: 4 slices bacon, 2 eggs cooked with 2 tbsps of sour cream. 1 prbtc, 1 thyrd, 1 multi, 2 flxsd. Oh, 2 bites of cheesecake to make sure it came out right. Yes, it did.
                    S: 2 sqrs 85% Lindt, 1 oz macadamia nuts
                    L: Salad and dressing. 1 leftover primal chicken piccata
                    S: Rest of pork rinds & sour cream. Some scraps for dinner. I wasn't really hungry because of the late snack
                    Exercise: 10 min trainer Cardio, 2 min walk with dog. I had some gum that day too.

                    I'll post yesterday's stuff on my next break.

                      • Thanks, Alessandra. Nice to see you back.

                        Was the two bars of Lindt a couple of days back a mistake? You meant two squares, right?

                        Veggies, my dear girl, veggies. The base of the primal food pyramid. Eat more veggies! It looks like you're only getting in about two helpings a day, unless you're eating humongous helpings, but in that case it's the variety that's lacking.

                        Okay, I'll stop being annoying for a while. But that's why we list our foods (which I should perhaps start doing again) right, to be accountable?

                        • Oh, I did mean squares! I did notice that I'm lacking veggies quite a bit lately.
