    On the bus:
    Double espresso with coconut oil

    Big-ass salad with chicken
    Herbal tea

    Herbal tea

    Bison burger with bacon on a bed of Romaine lettuce with avocado
    Roasted asparagus

    Later evening:
    I'm going to be up to all hours doing last-minute school stuff for tomorrow. I'm going to bribe myself with a coconut milk steamer. Easy on the maple syrup, adding in an egg yolk for extra nutrition.

      Days 20, 21, and 22 are a blur from being at school. Overall, I ate pretty well and weighed myself this morning to find that I'm 2 lbs down. I'll try to remember to take a body fat measurement on the weekend to see if I'm just dehydrated or actually making progress.

      Day 23 -

      On the bus:
      Coffee with coconut oil

      Mid-morning:
      Water
      Black coffee

      Lunch:
      Big Ass Salad with nuts and seeds and dried raisins and goji berries.
      Water

      Mid-afternoon:
      Candy cane. Oh come on, it's almost Christmas

      Dinner:
      Primal chicken tikka masala over cauliflower rice

      BED TIME! I have to recover from my school weekend. I have a massage scheduled for Wednesday morning and I am soooo looking forward to chilling out.

        Hey! It seems that you broke the almond chocolate rut?

        Also, kudos on the non-snacking study sessions!

          Ha, the rut was broken until today... Exceedingly stressful meeting at work. However, I bought a dark chocolate bar with almonds and shared it with my co-workers so not quite as bad an impact.

            I hear ya!
            Ive kinda figured out what makes me snack sweet junk at work: either anxiety (before or after stressful meetings) or boredom (during boring meetings!! ).

            Im gonna focus on the next few days (b4 xmas anyway) not to eat anything during meetings, maybe keep filling my coffee mug several times is a good idea.

            How do you plan to tackle xmas dinners?

              We may have been separated at birth!

              Christmas dinner - no problem. We eat French Canadian meat pie. I've never really liked the crust so I'll likely pick at it and give the rest away to someone else at the table. I'll allow myself to indulge - Christmas only happens once per year! So I'll have some potatoes, I'll skip the bread, I'll have the salad and the wine. And I'm sure I'll have some dessert, whatever it is my mom bakes this year (we're going to her place).

              Day 24 -

              On the bus:
              Coffee with coconut oil

              Mid-morning:
              Black coffee

              Lunch:
              Big-ass salad with almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried goji berries and dried blueberries.

              Mid-afternoon:
              Damn dark chocolate bar with almonds (but I shared it)

              Dinner:
              Leftover chicken tikka masala over cauliflower rice

                Oh hai!

                Holidays are over and I survived Time to start journaling again.

                Today, I will laze around on the couch with my dog, trying to absorb microscopic amounts of Vitamin D through the window. Tomorrow, the journalling returns!

                Happy New Year, everyone!

                          Friday, January 11th.

                          I'm super-excited that I'm staying under 50 grams of carbs. Seriously! This is new to me but I feel fabulous and I am losing weight. Maybe it's water weight again but I don't care because I'm feeling so awesome.

                          On the bus:
                          Coffee with coconut oil

                          Mid-morning:
                          Water
                          Black coffee

                          Lunch:
                          Big ass salad from a restaurant (walnuts, avocado, green lettuce, spinach, hard boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, you name it!)
                          Water

                          Mid afternoon:
                          A couple handfulls of salted mixed nuts. Probably should have had only one
                          Water

                          Dinner:
                          Leftover chicken with coconut cream and mushrooms
                          Mashed cauliflower
                          Water

                          I started on a new ionic magnesium supplement tonight that I picked up at our local wellness expo, and also a new vitamin C-lysine-proline-other-good-stuffs supplement. Feels great!
