        I've been pretty hungry the last couple of days, but I also had one small breakout so I'm thinking this might be when I would have had that time of month were I still having them so that might explain it...I always used to get hungrier at that time of month. I'm back down in weight this morning...equal to my lowest since starting Primal.

        I think I might by a NutriBullet today to see if I can get in a few more veggies. I am not interested in making a really sweet drink, so I may try just a small amount of spinach and broccoli and maybe a little cucumber with just half an apple or something....dunno yet. May change my mind when I get to the store.

        I started going through my cabinets this morning throwing out some old stuff, some not so good stuff and my plan for later is to start getting rid of old appliances/junk I never use anymore so I can make my space more efficient. (Otherwise, there is no space for that NutriBullet, lol.)

        [5:00 am] Coffee with 2T heavy cream; 5 slices nitrate/nitrite free thin cut bacon; 2 chewable calcium/magnesium tablets

        [8:30 am] (Starbuck's) Decaf coffee with 2 T heavy cream

        [10:20 am] Fage full fat Greek yogurt (one 7 oz container); parmesan crisps; 2 squares Lindt 90% bar; 1 tiny square Green & Black 85% Cacao bar

        [1:00 pm] 1 hour deep tissue massage

        [3:00 pm] 2 fried (no coating) chicken thighs, sauteed mushrooms; a few macadamia nuts

        [5:00 pm] 2 oz salami and 2 oz cream cheese

          Uggg, another night where sleep was interrupted. Was soooo very tired, that I kept falling asleep on the couch while reading, so at 7:40 I went to bed. Was just getting relaxed and comfy when my doorbell rang and also heard knocking. Since I sleep with a fan on, I wasn't sure it was mine (live in a 4 unit condo), but went down to check anyway. Didn't hear anything after that, but by then I was wide awake--not helping matters was the fact that we've had an increase in crime in my area in the last few weeks. I finally went to bed about 10:30, and did manage to fall asleep, but woke up at 4:00 (my usual time). Feeling pretty good so far in spite of all that and having NOT slept well the night before either.

          BUT, I AM down another little bit, so am at my lowest weight in a few months. That's 3 pounds down since I started EMF last week.

          Up for today...cooking for my work lunches for the week, a walk to Starbucks/Farmer's Market/Walgreen's and maybe Bed, Bath and Beyond, and cleaning out some of my kitchen cabinets of stuff I don't use anymore.

          [5:00 am] Coffee with 2T heavy cream; 1 oz of goat cheese w/a tiny bit of apricot. I am just not hungry in the mornings anymore.

          [8:40 - 9:15 am] Walk to Starbuck's then to Farmer's Market.

          [8:45 am] Starbuck's Soy Latte w/Sugar Free Vanilla (totally NOT primal)

          [9:15 -10:45 am] Cleaning out upper cabinets on one side of kitchen; hauling stuff to trash or trunk of car for Goodwill drop off; reorganizing

          [11:00 am] 4.75 oz (raw wt) 85% ground beef; 1 cup fresh mushrooms sauteed; 1 oz goat cheese; 2 tiny squares Green & Black 85% cacao bar

          [2:10 pm] 1 Parmesan crisp; 1 square Lindt 90% cacao bar; Fage total full fat yogurt

          [5:00 pm] 1 avocado; 5 slices bacon, 1 T mayo; iced decaf w/cream and sugar free caramel

            Slept a bit better last night but still a bit restless. Maybe it's the weather change...it's been warm the last few days and I typically sleep better when it's a bit on the cool side.

            [4:45 am] Couple bites of fromage fresche w/tiny bit of cranberry, 2 chewable calcium/mag tablets; Coffee with heavy cream on the way to work.

            [7:00 am] 1 roasted chicken thigh; 1/2 avocado

            [7:50 am] 1/2 cup decaf coffee with half & half

            [9:00 am] 1/2 cup decaf cofee with half & half (clearly I will need to cut this out at some point, lol)

            [11:30 am] 2 roasted chicken legs, 2 cups broccoli, 1T butter
            [12:15 pm] 1/4 of a Akaushi beef sausage; 1 Akaushi beef frankfurter (totally didn't need to eat this, but wanted to try them) and about 5 cubes of fruit (melon, mango, pineapple, canteloup)

            [5:20 pm] Full fat greek yogurt; 5 slices bacon; 2 squares Lindt 90%

            Well, I'm not happy about overeating today....I really don't like the feeling. Not physical, but the mental feeling. The physical wasn't too bad...I didn't eat enough quantity to feel bad physically, but it feels like I let myself down. Tomorrow is another day and I'll try to remember this feeling the next time I have a choice like this.

              I'm up a little bit from the aftermath of yesterday's overeating, but not by much. I definitely have a problem with protein, lol. Proteins are my favorite foods of all, and it's easy for me to overeat them. It's also easy for me to overeat carbs. So, today I've decided to try some coconut oil...sort of along the lines of the SLD, but I'm not really doing it for the weight loss, though that would be nice. Rather, I'm going to replace some of the excess proteins I eat with some really healthy oil.

              [4:50 am] 2 bites of fromage fresh; 2 calcium/mag chewable vitamins; commuter mug of coffee with heavy cream on the way to work.

              [6:40 am] 1 T extra virgin unrefined coconut oil

              [8:30 am] 1/2 avocado and 3 oz 85% lean ground beef

              [10:30 am] 1 T coconut oil

              [12:00 pm] 1 chicken thigh (w/bone & skin); 1-2 cups of broccoli florets w/1T butter; naval orange

              [4:45 pm] 2T cream cheese, 5 slices bacon, macadamia nuts. I really have to do a better job of planning.

                  Okay, I'm attempting to manage my distribution of nutrients today, but I need to go grocery shopping so I'm working with what I've got, lol.

                  I've not been hungry in the mornings, so I'm going to take advantage of that by just having my morning coffee with heavy cream on the way to work and some chicken broth with butter for my morning "snack" at work. Once I go grocery shopping I'll buy something else to have with the coffee.

                  [5:00 am] Coffee with 3T HWC; 1 chewable calcium tablet

                  [7:00 am] 1 cup organic chicken broth with butter

                  [11:00 am] 4 oz ground beef with approx. 24 black olives

                  [1:30 pm] 1 cup organic chicken broth with butter

                  [TC] 4 oz ground beef, spinach sauteed with butter, 1 or 2 squares Lindt 90%

                  Not the healthiest of menus, but working with what I've got.

                  And, I forgot the most important thing...I actually forgot to eat breakfast. I meant to, but I just forgot, lol. That's never happened to me before.

                      Could not sleep well again last night...not sure if it's the change in time, change in weather or a combo of both and something else. Woke up at 2:20 am, then finally got up around 3:40 and just did a gentle 45 minutes of exercise. I'm showered, fed, exercised, Facebook game played and dressed and it's just 6:00 am, lol.

                      My plan for today is that I have no plan...what I eat today depends on what I buy at the grocery store later, but I do know that I will have something at Starbuck's whilst out shopping with my mom and aunt.

                      [5:00 am] Coffee with 2T HWC, 5 slices thin cut nitrate/nitrite free bacon; 2 squares Lindt 90% bar; 1 chewable cal/mag

                      [8:30 am] Venti Iced Cafe Americano with Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup and a splash of HWC

                      [10:25 am] Fage full fat Greek yogurt (1 200g container)

                      [2:00 pm] 2 eggs, 10 olives, 1 cup mushrooms, 5 slices bacon, 1 T butter; 1 chewable cal/mag

                        Gosh, again, did NOT sleep well last night. I kept falling asleep on the couch while reading so went up to bed, then was wide awake for at least an hour or so...then kept waking up during the night. It's been fairly warm here the last week and a half and I think that might be it. I couldn't get comfortable.

                        I bought a NutriBullet yesterday. I'm thinking of making a veggie drink today. I definitely have trouble digesting veggies, so I'm hoping this will be a good way to get some in and if I add fat to it, that should keep it from getting too quickly into the bloodstream.

                        [5:00 am] Republic of Tea Chocolate Mate with 1T HWC and 1 drop of Stevia liquid; 1 raw coconut macaroon

                        [8:45 am] sugarfree carmel macchiato with HWC; 5 slices bacon; 2 (yes only 2) macadamia nuts; 1 square Lindt 90%

                        [12:05 pm] Tried my first green smoothie with the NutriBullet. I made too much and couldn't drink it all. I put in about 5 small raw broccoli florets, 1 oz of spinach leaves, about a 2" section of cucumber, 1/2 small avocado (with some dark spots removed), juice of 1/2 lime, about 2" section of banana and 1/4 of a medium granny smith apple and covered that with filtered water. It was very limey, lol...way too much lime juice but the taste was still pretty good. As I said above, this quantity was way too much so didn't drink it all. I'll try it again but will definitely cut down the lime juice and even the amounts of the greens. The NutriBullet did an excellent job of pulverizing everything though. My one other attempt at a green shake was disastrous because I just tried blending it with a normal blender...left big chunks which is not my thing in a drink. Ice cream, yogurt, yes, drink, no.

                        [1:00 pm] 8 macadamia nuts

                        [3:30 pm] 8 olives; 1 baked chicken thigh/leg combo

                        [5:00 pm] 2-3T cream cheese; 5 macadamia nuts

                          Slept slightly better last night, but still not great. Made an interesting discovery yesterday. I realized that I went nearly the entire day without a protein source. And I was still satisfied and not hungry. That jus disproves my really deeply held belief that I need protein to be satisfied, lol. I had the chicken mostly because I wanted to meet my daily "minimum" requirement of protein...up to 3:30 pm, I had had less than 15 grams I think...just what was in the veggies, bacon and nuts. I almost devoured the chicken though, so I think going too low is definitely a trigger for binging on protein.

                          [4:35 am] 1 oz goat cheese with thin outer layer of cranberries; 1 raw coconut macaroon; commuter cup of coffee with 3T HWC

                          [7:15 am] decaf coffee w/HWC and sugar free syrup (either iced or hot); olives

                          [11:00 am] 2 hard boiled eggs; 1 avocado

                          [4:50 pm] 3 oz ground beef; sauteed mushrooms; cream cheese; lindt 90% chocolate

                            Slept a little bit better again last night. Think I probably got a good 5 hours in before I woke up at around 1:50 a.m. Didn't go back to sleep after that for a long time, but did finally doze...but probably no more than an hour.

                            [4:45 am] 1 oz goat cheese w/thin layer of cranberries; 1 raw coconut macaroon; commuter cup of coffee with 2T HWC

                            [6:20 am] iced decaf coffee w/2T HWC and sugar free syrup

                            [7:15 am] egg salad (2 large eggs, 1T mayo, 1 baby dill); Republic of Tea Double Chocolate Mate w/ 1/2T honey

                            [11:10 am] 3 oz hamburger patty; 1/2 avocado

                            [5:00 pm] 1 chicken thigh w/skin; broccoli w/Kerrigold garlic butter

                            [snack] 2 squares of Lindt 90% and a few macadamia nuts

                                Slept a bit better last night. Yay.

                                [4:40 am] 5 slices thin cut bacon; commuter mug of coffee w/2T HWC and 1 drop D3

                                [6:40 am] Iced decaf coffee w/ 1T HWC and sugar free vanilla syrup

                                [7:30 am] 3 oz 85% ground beef; avocado

                                [11:40 am] 3 oz 85% ground beef; broccoli w/butter

                                [4:45 pm] 1 container Fage full fat Greek yogurt; macadamia nuts; 2 squares Lindt 90

                                Exercise: 11 minutes on the elliptical at work; later felt like something "fun" so play Wii sports for 32 minutes...must find something else fun but with no dread factor...I have LOTS of exercise DVDs which are fun, but almost all have some form of dread factor at the moment
