  • I had a nice deep tissue massage yesterday which was great. Up for today is a nice walk to Walgreen's to look for a couple of things, then to the Farmer's Market to pick up some raw milk products and back home. I may or may not stop at Starbucks for some coffee.

    7:00 am: 2 eggs, 5 slices very thin nitrite/nitrate free bacon, 1 cup sliced mushrooms, 1 T Kerrygold garlic herb butter, 1 slice cheddar cheese

    8:15 am to 9:00 am: walk to Walgreen's then to Farmer's Market which was closed this week due to a special event, then walked home--NO STARBUCKS, lol

    9:05 am: Coco Cafe Coconut Water latte

    12:00 - 12:45 pm: hand wash and dry car...hey it's still new, lol

    2:00 pm: 5 oz chicken liver, sliced mushrooms in Kerrygold garlic herb butter; 1 raw coconut macaroon

    • An official up day, though the last two were moderate to normal. I am having dinner out with the girls...we do this 4 times a year to celebrate each other's birthdays. We always eat at the Outback Steakhouse because of my food intolerances...they have a nice gluten free menu and are very accommodating.

      So far:

      4:50 am: 1 raw coconut macaroon (sadly, the last as the shelves were bare when I went grocery shopping); 1 cal/mag chewable; commuter mug of brewed decaf coffee with 2T HWC

      7:00 am: 3 oz polska kielbasa

      11:15 am: 4.5 oz of 87% grass fed beef w/1 slice of cheddar cheese

      [TC] Outback: may get my usual appetizer Shrimp on the barbie with a baked potatoe, or may get a dinner...not sure yet--will print the menu in a bit and try to decide before I get there.

      • Dinner last night was fun, and I stuck to my original thought, the shrimp appetizer and a baked potatoe.

        Today is a busy day, and it's officially a down day, though I can feel already a bit of struggle.

        I brought to work the entire 6 oz package of Applegate Organics slices roast beef made into "rolls" with a little smear of mayo and mustard and a sliver of pickle which I will eat throughout the day.

        6:45 am: sliced roast beef roll with coffee

        A blah day gone worse, lol. It's turned into a medium day instead of a down day...fortunately not TOO terrible as far as food

        Finished my sliced beef rolls, then had some fruit (melons) left over from an event, and they had a few pieces of bacon left as well, so I had 4 slices, and sheesh were those good! I also had three squares of Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Sea Salt.

        Dinner will be Fage full fat yogurt with a couple of drops of stevia

        • Uggg, it's been super busy at work so I haven't had much time to post. Today was an okay day...was trying for VLC, HF, but ended up having about 54g of carbs. I'm just trying to get the carb cravings under control again. Might as well wait now until Monday since I'll be going on a short overnight trip to visit a friend and we'll be going out to dinner and breakfast.

          Ugggg, I hate being super busy, lol. I really do stress eat and I can't figure out a way to stop that...it was a lot easier when the carb cravings weren't so strong.

              • Finally back. I am going to spend the next couple of days getting back on track...I've been eating lots of carbs and my cravings are telling me it's too much, so I'm going to concentrate on higher fat/lower carbs to get that back under control. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday for which I will need to fast, so I'm just going to use that day to jump back in to alternate day fasting or a 5:2 type of fast.

                Today so far:

                5:15 am: 2 cal/mag chewables, 1 commuter mug of brewed decaf coffee with 2T org. HWC

                6:30 am: 3 oz polska kielbasa; 1 cup decaf w/1 shot of expresso (at work) with 3 of those little tubs of Half & Half

                11:30 am: 4.5 oz 85% grass fed ground beef w/1 slice of org. cheddar cheese; 1 cup of broccoli w/1T butter; 2 squares of a Lindt 90% cocoa bar

                5:00 pm: fried liverwurst (don't ask--every time I eat liverwurst I think, I bet this would be good fried...so I tried it in a little garlic butter--it WAS good by-the-way); 3 mini coco-roons

                Will also try to do some form of exercise when I get home...gotta get back on track with that too. EDIT: ended up walking the neighborhood for my first attempt at on-track.

                • Today will probably look similar to yesterday, but forgot to bring my broccoli to work and ran out of kielbasa, lol.

                  6:00 am: Iced coffee with HWC and sugar free syrup (liquid splenda)

                  7:30 am: 4 oz boneless/skinless chicken thigh; 1 square Lindt 90% and two tiny squares of Green & Black's 85%

                  11:15 am: 4.5 oz grass fed ground beef, 1 slice org. mild cheddar cheese

                  5:00 pm: 7 oz container Fage full fat yogurt with frozen organic cherries

                  Exercise: 7 minutes on the elliptical at work; 20 minutes strength work

                  • Today is my annual wellness exam which will include bloodwork. I'm fasting for the testing so I'll just make this a down day and try to go as long as possible without eating. I'm still hungrier than normal and so haven't reached that appetite suppression I had hoped for but since I CAN'T eat for most of the morning, it's a good day to jump back in.

                    My doctor will be aghast at how much weight I've gained since the last time I saw her (last year)...not sure if I should tell her I've ALREADY lost 10-12 pounds, lol. But, I've made a lot of positive changes since the beginning of this year and I think she'll be pleased with that. I've also decided to cut back on my computer time, but quitting a Facebook game I was playing...this will give me TONS more time to do something active, lol. That may be as simple as cleaning the house, but it may also be some real activity.

                    Edits:

                    The exam went well, and far from being aghast, my doctor was pleased that I had lost a nice part of the weight I gained last year. I'll probably get results in a day or two.

                    12:21 pm and haven't eaten yet...just lots of water.

                    3:30 pm: 3 oz liverwurst; 1 cup each broccoli and mushrooms sauteed in Kerrygold garlic herb butter; 2 cal/mag chewables

                      • For some reason I am craving (mildly) junk food, lol. I'm not really sure what that's all about, but my grocery cart looked pretty strange today. I tried to make them healthier choices, but it's all junk nonetheless.

                        6:00 am: iced coffee w/HWC; Pamela's Everywhere Bar-Coconut/chocolate chip

                        12:00 pm: 8 oz flat iron steak, fresh mushrooms sauteed in Kerrygold garlic herb butter; fresh organic strawberries; a few BBQ Pop chips (really been craving something like chips); 1 square lindt 85% and 1 90%

                        6:00 pm: homemade "protein" shake

                        • Slept great for about 5 hours then woke up at 2 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. Got up around 3:40, played a few games on the computer, straightened up the livingroom a bit, cooked all my lunches for the week and now just waiting for the Farmer's Market to open up so I can take my walk.

                          4:00 am: 1 container Coco Cafe Latte; 1/2 gluten free pretzel which wasn't much like a pretzel so threw the other half away and had a raw coconut macaroon instead.

                          8:50 am: Grande Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappacino (I know)

                          12:30 pm: Flat Iron Steak; 1/2 avocado

                          4:40 pm: Fage full fat greek yogurt w/fresh organic strawberries & frozen organic blueberries w/1 T palm date sugar

                          • Huh, I guess I didn't post yesterday...could have sworn I did, lol.

                            Anyway...I've really gotten off track with my eating since my vacations. I did really well right after I got back from the second one, but then the sugar cravings started back up again and stupid me, but I fed them and now they're worse. So for the rest of this week I'm going to try to keep the carbs, especially simple sugars, down and focus mainly on fats and to a lesser extent, proteins and veggies.

                            Today:

                            4:00 am: 2 cal/mag chewables (may cut these out for the rest of the week as my latest blood tests show good levels of calcium and these have sugar in them); 1 raw coconut macaroon

                            7:00 am: iced coffee with HWC; 4 oz (cooked) chicken thigh (boneless/skinless)

                            [TC]: 4 oz (cooked) 85% grass fed ground beef; 1/2 small Haas avocado; 1 cup broccoli w/ 1 pat butter

                            [TC]: dinner is undecided...I have an eye exam after work, so it will probably be something quick and weird, but higher in fat and lower in carbs/protein

                            • Today will be much like yesterday...today's appointment after work is for a mammogram. My dinner yesterday ended up being bacon and cheese. Today it will probably be full fat greek yogurt with some low sugar fruit.
