    Ermagerd, definitely went to Quiznos again... and since I'm not the biggest chicken fan, I asked for extra bacon instead of the chicken... THEY GAVE ME SO MUCH BACON! And for the same price! I'm in hog heaven here, people!

      So, weekend. Better than last weekend! But still not great..
      Saturday was: eggs and bacon for breakfast, soup and salad for supper, and a couple small glasses of wine at the curling rink
      Sunday: I went shopping with seester, so mall food for lunch Greek salad and a lamb skewer from Opa. Then to the in-laws for supper, chili (with beans, but so good) and salad and I could not resist the damn garlic bread and cheesecake. And now I'm paying for it, lol.

      So, as usual, back on track today! I brought some of the leftover chili and a couple hard boiled eggs. And today is egg day! Also, I am going to go buy an artificial Christmas tree after work today.. this is the first time in 5 years that we'll be spending Christmas (I mean, we generally visit, but it's not the same) with our friends and family, and I'm very excited.

        Glad things are going ok for you! Coffee in bed together makes me jealous! No way would we be able to do that, we'd have kids taking up most of the bed space...

          If you can figure out a way to swing it, do so! We have a coffee-maker in our room (totally indulgent, I know, but we were given a Keurig, and already have two coffeemakers in the kitchen) and try to remember to bring mugs in before bed. It's such a simple thing (well, when you don't have kids!) but that 10 minutes does so much for my mood for the rest of the day!

          Sigh.. I just wish I could lose some weight for real. I feel good, I know I must be doing my body good... but no results. I took my measurements the other day, so at least I will be able to tell if I'm losing inches which should help, but right now I just feel like I'm failing.

            So, I'm trying this whole leptin reset thing.. Key word being trying! I was good, and didn't eat 4 hours before bed yesterday, but now I'm trying to have my 50g protein breakfast, and it's killing me! I so rarely eat breakfast, and never this big! I have 3 scotch eggs with me, and I've managed 2 so far. I think I read somewhere that you can make up some of the 50g with fat if you can't eat that much protein. Hopefully it will do.

            The last one is giving me the stink eye.

            I'm also going to try just drinking tea today. Am I taking on too much at once? Probably. Only my caffeine headaches will tell!

            Anyone have any good suggestions for leptin reset breakfasts?

              Couldn't even think about touching that third scotch egg. I guess we'll see if it's enough. I had a small bowl of MIL's homemade chicken soup (made with turkey broth from Thanksgiving, so technically bone broth!) and just picked out the potatoes.

              Why is it easier to stick with things because I'm calling it a leptin reset? Its not substantially different from what I was trying to do before, other than eating breakfast.

              Failed on the coffee count though, I'm having my first cup of the day right now. (Two cups of tea this morning, both caffeinated) But I'm refusing to put cream in it, so I probably won't finish the whole cup.

              I'm probably going to make more cauliflower soup tonight, using my own stock I will have to check if I'll actually be able to eat it though, I'm really really really trying to stay low carb.

                You know, I read the post about leptin reset, and honestly, I feel like I need to get myself out of this gimmicky-diet-mind thing. I tell my friends Pliers every day that I'm not on a diet. I feel like I need to live like I'm not on a diet. I think if I keep trying stuff to 'reset' or whatever, I'll lose focus on what I'm actually trying to do, which is to be healthy. It's really just sticking with the basics that we already KNOW work.

                  I absolutely agree with you, it isn't a very healthy mentality. My issue is that I am not a very disciplined person, in pretty much all areas of my life. I'm trying to work on this, as it's not a useful trait, and often holds me back. I feel like I need a regimented plan right now. Hopefully I can find that happy medium... but oddly enough, I'm not feeling more stressed out because I'm being more strict; in a way it's easier to have fewer options. I don't think it's sustainable long term, but I'd like to get to the point that I can trust my body (and almost more so - my mind), and I'm just not there right now.

                    That was not meant as a reflection of you, just a sudden realization I had as I was about to post on your thread

                    • It's ok, I wasn't taking offense or anything, what you said just hit a chord And like I said, I do agree... but I like what I'm doing right now, so it's fine.

                      I had steak for supper last night (no veg! I was just too lazy..)

                      More scotch eggs for breakfast.. I didn't bother bringing a third today. Brought some of my creamy cauli soup for lunch, lots of dairy in there, oh well!

                      Oh, and I'm totally going to be a peddler of HFCS etc etc... I almost feel bad. But not quite. It's Halloween, kids are going to eat candy anyhow - and we are going to be that house: giving out the full-sized chocolate bars! lol I just couldn't resist... we've lived in apartments for the last 5 years and never got trick or treaters. Now we're in a town house, and there's a TON of kids that live nearby. THEY ARE GOING TO BE SO CUTE!

                      • So sad, we had hardly any kids last night.. so of course that means there is still a ton of candy in the house! I haven't touched any of it, which would have been unimaginable a couple months ago I made my brother take some of it to work.. watch, someone at his work will be on here, and they'll post on the gripe of the day thread: "Everybody brought in their unused halloween candy.. and someone had FULLSIZED chocolate bars?! Who thinks kids need that? Especially on Halloween! What horrible people..." lol

                        Anyways.. the scotch eggs are gone, so for breakfast I have beef/cabbage/carrot slowcooked. And a couple hardboiled eggs. Finally getting a bit of an appetite in the morning...
                        If I have lunch, it will be more of the leftover chicken soup. Plus more beef and/or cauli soup for supper. So, I'm set!

                        Oh, also did a quick LHT session last night... it probably should have been more thorough, but it's something.

                        • Another good day yesterday. I had my hardboiled eggs for lunch, and my boss-lady (aka MIL) brought in some brie, and insisted I have some... brie is like my crack, people! Can't say no to that shit! But I shall not beat myself up for a moderate amount of dairy
                          I had another bowl of cauli soup for supper. My appetite has been dropping off pretty drastically the last couple days, I have to remind myself to eat dinner, and have had no desire to snack afterwards! Whoohoo! Let's hope it sticks!

                          I have some pork breakfast sausages for breakfast today (not the best quality, but they taste surprisingly ok microwaved) and one egg. I still can't seem to eat more than about 25 maybe 30g of protein at breakfast. I'm just going to accept that as ok for my body, as I haven't been overeating later.
                          I didn't pack a lunch today, I will hopefully just IF until dinner.

                          And for dinner, we shall have: Breakfast! Hahaha My brother has been requesting this lately, I don't really understand why he's so into it, as we have awesome breakfast food almost every weekend. But that's ok. That's what I really bought the breakfast sausages for, so we'll have those, and I'm going to try making banana pancakes (without any sort of flour).

                          And then I impulsively invited BIL and niece K over for brunch tomorrow. I plan to make my famous Eggs Benny. And bacon. Of course. I might cave in and buy some bread products to go with... and then feel guilty about poisoning my guests, I suppose. Maybe the pancakes will make a reprise, if they turn out.

                          Ah, and on that note, I'm going to have to get more eggs! It started out as 2 dozen every other week. This past Monday, I got 3 doz, and those will be pretty much gone by the end of the weekend. Hopefully it's not too late to put an order in for this Monday.

                          • Oh and I forgot to mention.. I haven't had any coffee in 48 hours! Lots of tea, so I'm still getting caffeine (enough to keep the headaches at bay) but I think it's a good thing. Not saying I'm not going to drink coffee again, I just hate that I am (was?) addicted to it. It's funny, I was rereading one of those lame facebook quizzes that I did like 6 years ago, and there was a question about coffee, and I said " I like a good cup of coffee, but it's not like I need to wake up in the morning or anything" Bahahaha!

                            • Ugh, completely fell off the wagon this weekend. Not just fell, dove headfirst into the stinking puddle on the wayside. I don't want to talk about it. :P

                              Oh well, back to it today! I did not have time to grab breakfast, I just have an orange. We shall see how this goes. Also, it's niece K's birthday, so who knows what we'll have for supper. Sigh. Clearly, I am slowly and awkwardly hauling myself back on to the still-moving wagon. Someone want to give me a hand? lol

                              • Ok, so I actually read through my last couple posts, and realized I can be more positive here.

                                My eggs benny turned out phenomenally. John dear and I had ours on mushrooms and brie. So freaking good.

                                The banana pancakes were also very delicious, we will definitely be making those again!

                                And I did get more eggs, another 3 dozen. I will have to think of something delicious to put a dent in them And my egg dealer remembered my name. Now I feel special.

                                And tomorrow, seester dearest and I are going Christmas tree shopping! And also I finished a painting for her that I have quite literally been working on for years. I'm excited to finally give it to her.

                                And, being fairly young and in quite good health, my weekend of poor choices will not having any terrible long term consequences, as long as I get my act together now, aka: second (or third, fourth, bazillionth) chances are a beautiful thing!
