    Ah, such a nice start to this morning.
    Daughter slept in a little later than usual and boy, that made a world of difference to energy level getting up.

    We headed out after getting ready and went strawberry pickin!


    Modern foraging hehe
    I would've been the one hauling her around, but I have a bad back. By the time we were done, so did the husband lol.



    And our 2 gallons of strawberries. YUM!


    The season is only just starting so should be even better in a month. We're def going back at least one more time.

      Oh a couple more photos of our eggs!
      We could probably fill up that entire top shelf with eggs if we let DH's parents give us eggs every week. Their chickens should be laying really well since it's warmed up.


      And what some of them look like.
      I know before they got their egg laying chickens, I had NO idea that some chickens could lay green eggs or even blue ones.

        Getting together with family is such a diet killer LOL.
        No they don't force feed the bad stuff, but just hanging out with them, I tend to forget that I'm even dieting and just eat whatever.
        SIGH!
        I've got some serious making up for the way I've eaten this weekend.
        Hopefully my weekly weigh-in on Wed won't be too bad.
        I'll have to be extra good on my carbs this week.
        UGH we still have a wedding to go to on Saturday though.
        Meh, I'm not even going to worry about it.
        These extra cheats are going to slow down weight loss, but weight loss is still going to happen no matter what.
        I AM going to lose this weight, and I AM going to get healthier and get pregnant again.
        No point in regretting decisions I've made. Just go forward and live my life the best I can.

        Today was fun... nonstop, but fun.
        Got to dress up which happens once a year lol. And got to see my baby in an UBER girly frilly poofy dress. She was so cute
        It was a good day

          So back on the primal train today.
          Just tried a can of sardines, and..... Not bad. I did put some hot sauce on them but still not bad.
          Now I don't mind the bones or scales, but seeing the tail fin still attached was a bit offputting.
          I have fish tanks and love my pet fish, so being reminded that I was eating some threw me off a bit lol.
          I love my meat and know where it comes from but I don't like being reminded of it.
          Like pigs feet.... seeing the hoof is ok, but if there is still hair on it, I can't stomach it.
          Or poultry. If there is still feathers attached, bleh!!

            Alrighty, I ate another can of sardines and a can of smoked oysters. This was supposed to last me the entire week dangit lol.
            I only have 1 can of sardines left. Oh well...
            Quick and easy meal or snack.

            Lets see, so I had that, pork rinds, chicken breast & salad.
            Had avocado again today. OMG I love avocados!!!! I would eat 10 a day if they weren't so high in carbs. They're not terrible or anything but still a little too high for me to eat more than one a day.
            I enjoyed the hell out of my one today though. DELICIOUS! Love it when they're just ripe and still firm.

              Yesterday was pretty good.
              I did have some hunger issues that I'm sure were caused by the bad foods eaten this past weekend. But I overcame and yep...

              I weigh in tomorrow. Interested to see what my weight is at.
              Really need to start exercising on a more regular basis again. It's just SO difficult to get motivated to do it after taking care of our baby girl. All I want to do is relax and take it easy, not get sweaty and not be able to take a shower right after.
              Gonna have to figure something out.

                Daughter is down for a nap so I have a few minutes to myself.

                Had some jalapeno chicken sausage for breakfast and will have some for lunch in a moment. So yummy, but I really need to learn how to make my own homemade stuff.
                While overall, I don't have a problem buying premade things, I know it would be better if I made everything myself. That way I would know exactly what was going in to it *nodnod*
                I think I'll try that with breakfast sausage soon. I remember seeing a post about that a while ago.

                  Lets see.... other than the sausages... for dinner I made flat iron? steak w/ green beans and a salad.
                  Marinated the steak in sesame oil, soy sauce (I know), 2tbs honey, garlic, onion powder.
                  I think next time, just 1tbs of honey would be enough... or none. I thought we had some of the tamari(sp?) soy sauce, but nope. We must've run out of it a while ago.

                  Slightly higher carb day but not by too much.

                  We went walking before dinner. NIce day out and DH wanted to take a walk. It was pretty nice. We live in a decent neighborhood surrounded by small lakes so it was just nice and quiet.

                  I'm naturally a slow walker though. If I go at someone elses normal pace, it feels like I'm jogging. DH always picks on me b/c I walk so slow heh. I don't ever think I'll be a jogger or runner. If there are ever running zombies... I might as well just lay down and die b/c there would be no point in me even trying lol.

                    So, weigh in today and *drumroll*

                    215.
                    That is down a pound from last wednesday and makes it 7lbs total.
                    Not too shabby!

                    Ok so this weekend is a wedding. Next weekend I think we finally have nothing special to do so that should be a good week.
                    And then the week after that, we have a family reunion that we'll be forced to attend. Can't remember when that birthday party is. It's either the end of this month or next month some time.

                    I swear, it's usually not like this. We're very boring & content people and usually have nothing to do during the weekends.

                    Alrighty, gotta get daughter and myself dressed and head to the store really quick.
                    DH has his guy's night tonight and I need to find myself something to eat. My chance to eat whatever I want (within the diet of course).

                      So, I made myself a creamy oyster stew/chowder whatever you want to call it tonight.
                      Spent a lot on those dang oysters too.

                      Anywho, meh, it wasn't bad. Used heavy whipping cream, celery, garlic, onion, butter, salt, pepper, parsely.
                      I dunno.... I think I like clam chowder better. When I've made that, the flavor is a lot better and more savory. This just didn't have the flavor I wanted.
                      It wasn't bad though and I made a TON of it, so have plenty of leftovers for whenever.

                      And yeah, really nothing else to say. As the title of this journal says... it's boring :P lol
                      I sometimes wish I were a bit more interesting, but meh... I do enjoy my quiet life... other than being fat

                        UGH... last night was terrible.
                        Baby girl decided it was time to wake up at 11:30, and not go back to sleep until 1:10.
                        THEN, I guess oysters do not agree with me, b/c as soon as I laid down, I got indigestion and eventually had about 3 trips to the bathroom.
                        So.. yeah... that all sucked

                          Welp, today was interesting. As from my previous post.
                          It didn't start off too well w/ getting so little sleep.
                          While baby girl was having her bottle, I came on to check email and see that I won a spur of the moment contest I entered! WOOOO!!
                          That really helped my mood

                          Went and visited my mom a little later. She is Korean and does NOT understand the whole "no rice" thing lol. She asked if I was dieting still and asked...
                          "So no rice?"
                          "Nope, no rice."
                          " BAH, just a little is ok."
                          " Nope, not even a little right now."

                          An hour later....
                          "You hungry? I can fix some rice."
                          /facepalm

                          What can I say, she is set in her ways. 65? 64? years old and she looks great. Almost all of her food is made from scratch. Rarely eats processed crap.
                          I'm sure a primal person would LOVE her fridge full of fresh caught fish, blue crab, meat meat and more meat, kimchi, radish kimchi (which I got some from her today, woo!), etc etc. Frickin love Korean side dishes, but unfortunatly, a lot of them are soy, or have sugar in them. They sure are great with rice.

                          Anywho!!!

                          I fixed bone in chicken breast again today. Baked with a stick of butter and hot sauce poured over. For some reason cooking the hotsauce doesn't bother my stomach as much. Yay. AND it makes the delicious buttery juices on the bottom well... delicious
                          Also had a salad w/ avocado.

                          I was still hungry after dinner though. Don't think it was enough to eat (it usually is though).
                          So I snacked on some pork rinds and that seemed to do the trick.

                          I may add in some yogurt to help w/ my gut problems. Or just take some kind of probiotic. We'll see.

                            I love the Friday success stories, but an ugly side eeks out of me sometimes.

                            While reading them is really inspires... it kind of gets me unmotivated b/c I get so unsure of myself.
                            I look at the amazing results some of these people have and wonder if I'll ever get there. I always feel like my journey is going to take such a long time b/c of the other health issues I have and it just sucks and is so discouraging.
                            I get jealous of other people's weight loss success. Logically, I know that it probably took most of them a while to lose weight, but my jealousy doesn't want to see that.
                            Just something else I need to work on and I am.

                              Alrighty, so... after making myself a big steaming bowl of egg drop soup. I'm eating it and see this long thin yellowish thing.
                              It's probably just the yolk since it wasn't cooked through so it was still runny, BUT, I am not risking it and eating anymore b/c the yellow thing looks like a damn parasitic round worm.
                              HARF!!!!
                              I have a really bad paranoia of parasitic worms and if it looks like it.... byebye appetite.

                              Like I said, I'm sure it probably is just the runny yolk that ran off and cooked like that, but just no.... no.

                                MIA for a little bit.
                                So this weekend was screwed!
                                Hell, the remaining weekends in April are for that matter. We have something planned for every single weekend and ALL of them involve food. SIGH!
                                Oh well. Gotta live life and do my best on the other days

                                We got our garden done today! WOO! No extra mini garden, that will have to wait another year, but we have

                                Purple bell pepper
                                Orange bell pepper
                                4 jalapeno
                                multiple garlic
                                multiple onion
                                I think 3? Different types of cucumber
                                cherry tomato
                                tomatillo
                                And 2 tomato types that I can't remember

                                The garlic and onion are supposed to help keep certain bugs away. We also planted some merigolds to hopefully help with that as well.
                                I'm sure we'll still have to spray them with something. We live in between a lot of small lakes/ponds so we get LOTS of bugs in the area.
                                I'll get some photos of my 2 little gardens tomorrow Nothing to see yet, but it will be fun to watch everything sprout and grow


                                As I said above, diet has been bleh this weekend, but new week ahead and time to get back on this!
