    • wow - for the first time since I started whole30 I feel like having a treat. Not going to......... but it sure sounds good.

      All the chairs are cleaned an out for summer nights around the fire! The table will have to wait till hubby gets home tonight cuz it takes two to move it. So the pressure washer is still out - I decided the front porch really doesn't need it this year I still need to clean up the driveway where the 5th wheel sat. Yucky dirty stuff I'm telling ya!

      I'm pretty tuckered out after all this p.washing. See - I don't even have the energy to type out the whole word!

      Food yesterday:
      4 eggs
      pork rinds
      large beef patty

      I'm getting pretty stoked for what the scale will say when I'm done with this whole30!!!! I can tell I'm losing weight. Yeah! I'm really hoping to be down in the 170's even its the high 170's. Anything under 180 will make Tomi a very happy girl!

      Wow - how do all these flies get into my house? I leave the door open long enough to move the sprinkler and I come back in to an infestation! Sheesh!

        • We freeze butter all the time. Don't really need to, just seems like what you do if you might not use food immediately

              • It's 2.99, if I remember correctly, at TJs. And, I think it's normally 4.99 at Safeway. Same size.

                • I have numerous blocks of kg in my fridge that don't expire til 2014. Check the date. Probably don't need to freeze it.

                    • I decided 10 days on only protein and very little fat was long enough to tell me my problems have got to be related to Fructose Malabsorption. So last night I ate a little green beans with dinner. so far so good! everything I'm reading says the fodmaps have a cumulative effect - so I need to go at this slowly and methodically. I'll have a little green beans for dinner 2 more times and see what happens. Green beans are on the safe list - but, everyone is different and it says to be cautious of even the safe foods. I was going to start with sweet potato, but I didn't have any.

                      I cheated on my whole30 last night. I ate peanuts and had rum. Confession is good for the soul right? Not very many peanuts though - maybe 1/4 cup total. Too much rum though.

                      Cooked up some tuna loins on the Egg (charcoal bbq) last night - covered them in Old Bay. REALLY GOOD! I was afraid I had over cooked them, but they were perfect! I ate a large piece and wanted more but I was full so I stopped.

                      Hubby is fishing with his bible study group today. Hopefully he will bring home a pile of Kokanee and I'll be eating fresh fish for dinner again! If not - there is still plenty of tuna left. This is their last hurrah until fall - they always take the summer off since attendance really drops off in the summer. They have a guys+wives gathering scheduled for August 17th at the beach, and then we'll have the kick-off gathering here in Sept. Then they start up again on Monday nights.

                      Today I'm going to be a bit lazy. I need to mow the grass and finish watering the backyard. I might do some weeding out front. But I'm not going to push it - the last 2 days have been really busy! I'm also doing laundry and will finish up the vacuuming. Okay - not so lazy after all. I didn't get the cover over BBQ central cleaned yesterday so maybe I'll do that too. I can climb out the upstairs window and get on the roof so I don't have to worry about climbing the ladder - but I'm not sure how I'll get the pressure washer wand up there............. hummmm - have to give this some thought. The best thing to do would be to put some detergent/bleach and water in the sprayer - spray the cover and let it set/soak for a bit - then go with the pressure washer. That's maybe more than I want to take on today. Its not that terribly dirty right now - I will wait until next weekend and hubby and I can work on that together. Actually, I think I will put it off until fall, or maybe next spring and do it before we put the furniture out. If I do it now I will make a mess all over everything. There - crossed that job off the list! Yeah! Don't you love reading my thought processes?

                      Next weekend is Fathers Day. Not sure what hubby and the girls have planned, but I'm sure I'm not going to be included. that's okay - I don't want to spend that much time with them anyway. Oldest will just talk all about herself the entire time and I'm really not interested.

                      We're going to the boat tonight after hubby gets home from fishing. So my job is to pack up what we need.

                      Food: eggs, butter, olive oil, meat, snack food.
                      toiletries: toothpaste and brushes. Earplugs. Rx's.
                      Some clothes.

                      Its already got all the kitchen stuff and towels. The bed is made. I won't take up the computer for movies. He wants to get a flat screen with built in DVD to mount in the cuddy. I don't want to spend the money - not this year.

                      Well - theres my rambling thoughts for this morning. I guess I should go get started on the lawn.

                      • another confession........ curiosity won out and I stepped on the scale. I'm happy to report I've lost 6 pounds since starting whole30 12 days ago. I was having an odd HIGH day on my first day - but I'm counting it anyway. If this rate of loss keeps going I will be into the low 170s by the end of the month. I'm pretty sure I'm going to continue the whole30 until I get to my goal weight. If something is working - why change right? I'm going to keep my carbs VERY low since I'm also doing the elimination diet to see what I can and cannot handle from the fodmaps foods.

                        So far - no ill effects from the green beans. If I do have any tummy troubles I am going to blame it on the rum. That is my next demon to kill. Baby steps.

                        • So I decided to dig into the depths of my closet and see what fits. I was happy to find that almost ALL my nearly brand new summer top fit me now! Toning, tightening and losing! Woot Woot! I still have about 10 pairs of capris that I probably won't wear until next summer. Maybe late this summer if all goes well.

                          I'm contemplating not changing anything with my diet since I'm losing weight now. If I bring carbs back the weight loss might stop again. I've read many times where Mark has said we can survive just fine without carbs. And I'm feeling good, and my bowels aren't spazing out - so really, why should I change anything right now? I know I was only going to do the zero carb for 2 weeks - but I'm gonna play with stretching it out longer.

                            This is so exciting ! I am even more hopeful now that it is also working for me .... my gut sure seems happier than it has in a long time.
                            So happy that this is working for you !!!
                            Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

                            • Glad things are going so well for you Tomi. I stepped on that daggum scale today too. 178.6. Down another pound for 43 pounds total. Super excited, but I noticed by boobs are taking a hit... they look deflated and just kind of hang there now. Gonna have to consider getting that problem fixed when we're all done with this weight loss thing.

                              • Jenn - great job on the weight loss!!!! and I can totally relate on the deflating lady bumps. Mine are also on the saggy, flat side. But, that means we're losing fat and not muscle I keep teasing hubby that he better be saving up if he wants me to have fake ones installed.

                                Orannhawk - it is pretty exciting to think I may have finally found the "cure" to my years of distress. I'm hoping you have too!

                                I slept so good last night!! Went to bed a little late - 11:15 but feel asleep instantly and didn't wake up at all until 5:30. Unfortunately I stayed awake and now am dragging at 7:45. I'm considering going back to bed for a bit - but my mind is already fully awake so I don't think I can sleep any more.

                                Okay --- I did a little experiment over the weekend. Keeping my diet totally clean and carb free - I tested the rum to see what it would do to my gut. I was not happy with the results. I was quite ill on Sunday morning. So, rum goes on my unsafe list. Hubby is not happy about that since the rum nights are about the only nights I am "in the mood". So, will have to work on that issue again. How to increase my libido........... ugh.

                                Otherwise - I'm doing great on the whole30/zero carb. We spend the day on the boat Sunday and I took pork rinds and pre-cooked tuna and water. I took m&m's for hubby and he didn't even open the bag! Last night I made burger patties and a potato for hubby.

                                Not happy about it being Monday again. I am really looking forward to getting the mortgage paid off so I can retire. At 53 I probably shouldn't be so anxious for that.......... but - I'm just a home-body at heart. I love being home. However, that being said - the mortgage won't be paid off for around 10 years. So I will still be near the normal retirement age when I can finally quite working.

                                I took out a roast for dinner. Hubby is missing pasta so I think I'll try to make something like a fettuccini for him. In my old ways I would just grab a box of Pasta-Roni ............... but I can't in good conscience feed that franken-food to my husband anymore. It will have to be home made.

                                I think I'm experiencing the early signs of carpal tunnel syndrome. My right hand often falls asleep at night and now I'm having some achiness during the day as well. I'm doing to normal stretching exercises - hoping to avoid the surgery. Hubby had both hands done at the same time a couple years ago - that was interesting. I had to shower and dress him for close to 2 weeks. He managed to take care of his bathroom needs thank goodness!
