    B: left over omelette (1/3 yesterdays) large black coffee no coco oil today just couldnt face it.

    L: crazy. I took a staff member to lunch. No primalish things on menu - all sandiwiches and burgers and pasta and schnitzel. So I ordered the grilled chicken burger, intending to ditch the bun. I took the top off and started eating and realised I had eaten 1/3 bottom bun and a bunch of fries with BBQ sauce, without even thinking about it. Damn! Force of habit, I wasn't even thinking. Once I realised I stuck to the chicken and avo etc but...geez.

    D: lefteovers again. Spicy prawns with mango and avocado. Yum.

    I am proud of myself for being more appropriate about leftovers. Usually I don't feel like the same meal the next day and by the next day I am suspicious its off so I chuck it. What a waste. Now I tell myself to grow up and just eat it, lol.

    Exercise: 35 min walk in my new vibrams. Loved it!

          B: large black coffee, boiled egg
          L: rotisserie chicken breast with skin and steamed veg (cauli, broc, bok choy)

          D: 4 egg omelette with guts of tomato, tasty cheese and tuna, sprinkled with spring onions.
          Not sure I liked it. Have left overs, deciding whether to chuck them , tuna and spring onion is a bit much for breaky, and I don't think I like tuna on omelette. I was going to make my tuna bolognaise, then I felt like a cheesy omelette, this was my bright idea.

          Because I feel a bit gross, instead of brushing my teeth I made a small bananna sprinkled with cocoa. Not sure I love that either.

          Best I go brush my teeth before I eat something else to block the memory of my dinner/taste.

            Hmm tuna omelette sounds ok in theory but I don't think I would like it much either. But it was worth a try.

            Banana and cocoa should be a good combination, maybe it would be better made into icecream (frozen and blended with cream and berries), or into mudcake or pancake (ie blended with egg and cooked in microwave or a buttered wafflemaker).

            It is fun to experiment with primal ingredients for different results.

                Hi Annieh, yeah it was a bad move! I'll give those dessert ideas a go, thanks

                yeah, don't try it! Do you ever watch that Justine Schofield cooking show on Ten (Everyday Gourmet)? I blame her. She made a tuna omelette once, gave me the idea. But of course one of the shows sponsors in Sirena. Evil!

                B: large black coffee with coconut oil, apricot

                L: baked potato with bolognaise, sour cream and guacamole. Made at a food court...the bolognaise wasn't too oily so I hope they didnt load it with vegie oil. Potatoes aren't ideal but I really wanted something substantial after last night's disgusting dinner.

                D: t-bone steak with sauteed mushrooms (dripped in the rendered fat from the t-bone whilst it was resting), salad with avocado and fetta.

                Exercise: walk over the overpass (40 stairs either side) over and back twice (so 80 ups and 80 down all up*) Enough to make my heart rate go up, my thighs burn and get all sweaty. Small steps - I'd like to build on this gradually.

                Edit: actually its 80 up and 80 down for one trip over AND BACK, so I am starting with 2 trips so 160 ups and 160 down

                  Fuck it was hot today. Hottest recorded day in Sydney, 46 degrees.

                  B: large black coffee and coconut milk.
                  It was too hot for eggs so I tried to find decent yoghurt near me but everything was 97% fat free, disgusted.

                  L: salad greens and lemon herb chicken and roasted capsicum

                  D: hmmmm went to movies with friend. actually, first I attended cocktails for a bday and I had a sip for the "happy birthday" cheers and ignored the rest. Then movies and saw Hitchcock - so good, I love Hitchcock films so it was fascinating. Anway, good idea to escape the furnace. Dinner - a burger place! OK so I had a great bacon and cheese burger on a gluten free bun and some herb covered fries. Later went for a coffee and had a flat white. However, whilst this is not ideal, this person I usually go for seriously bad food like pizza and the chatting nonstop part of the evening is usually accompanied by bottles and bottles of wine. So I did exercise some restraint! AND I am not diving into the chocolates or other shit haunting my cupboards. Sooo...I figure the occasional compromise for social reasons is a good way to test my will power.

                  God its hot. urch

                    And good for you for having fun and for making a good balance between social eating and PB!

                      It was an awful day with that heat yesterday. When I left for my exam, the cars thermometer read 47 degrees, at nearly 5 pm!
                      It did drop quite rapidly over the next few hours though.

                        Thanks sakura_girl, I have decided to confess my sins rather than going quiet for a while! It was an awesome burger and I hope the gluten free bun was a compromise. Sorry about the chill where you are. If it helps, I would swap in a heartbeat

                        47 is crazy. Actually 37 would normally be crazy! Glad both days over 40 were days I was in the office.

                        Slept in.

                        Brunch: a cheesy 2 egg omelette with 1/2 tomato and 1 rasher of bacon. Tea with splash of milk.

                        Coffee with splash of milk.

                        Dinner: lamb cutlets with sweet potato mash (mashed in chilli, garlic, ginger and lime (microwaved with the sweet potato so its all jammy and juicy - thanks Jamie Oliver).

                        Exercise: over the overpass and back x 2, so 160 up steps and 160 down.

                          Whew, that is HOT. Your food sounds good, Katemary. As for exercise, I cant imagine doing any at all in those temps. Best wishes.

                            Yeah, hottest ever recorded. Thankfully it has dropped!

                            My food is very plain (since I used to live on sandwiches) but I am trying to experiment, thanks.

                              Spent a good deal of my spare time this weekend reading Richard Bandler's NLP techniques. I go through phaes with this sort of stuff. Be so nice if I could change by just changing the representations in my mind. If only I was conscious / accurate in detrmining how I represent some fears/anxiety to start!

                              Can't decide whether to meet friend for a Hitchcock retro (The Birds/Psycho) tonight. I love those movies, its just a lot of sitting on arse and then it will be late when I get home and weekend will be over. I feel like more random bumming about and pottering is needed before the next work week begins...

                                What is NLP? Is there a book? Or a website?
