        • OOOOK! I think I am going to end with a fab-food day. Its after lunch and my stats are
          P-34
          c-11
          f-65
          cal-741

          So far the key for the protein issue is a single egg in the morning (I thought I would not make it.. with the help of a fat bomb I did) and then 3 oz of meat (today was carnitas). I made Marks paleo tortillas and their stats are amazing. I get 9 small ones in a batch and here are the stats:
          42 cal
          1.3 g protein
          .3 g carbs
          4.1 g fat

          In short, I think the macros are going to be inline today! I am feeling Gooooooood!

          • Sigi, great results! Have you been having these awful temps over there in Vic? It was still 28 degrees at 11 pm last night.
            Chris hope some of your puffiness goes down ASAP.
            Wow Pedidoc that is great results. What macros have you been going for?
            Calee, good luck and welcome
            Great Paula!, how exciting. I too love this energy that comes with eating higher fat.
            Awesome Karin, 5 lbs is great!
            Good on you for avoiding the nasty donuts Geo.
            I think its better to skip a workout if you don't feel great anyway Jenn. Hope the headache doesn't get too nasty.
            I didn't walk last night, it was still 38 degrees at 8pm, crazy! You are doing so great Karin

            • Ayla - those temps are huge. I could not cope in that heat.
              I wonder if its worth your while trying peppermint oil on the back of your neck to cool down ????? I use it when I have a headache - but think it might benefit you on the hot days.
              However use a cotton bud to apply it, cos if it gets into your eyes or any other orifaces - really stings !!!!!!

              well done everyone on your successes. I actually had a wee wine last night - (slaps hand), but still on track - so thats good
              have the best day peoples

              • ooh will have to try that.

                • Ayla, super impressed that you can answer to each of us, especially given we are so many and so chatty!

                  I grew up in Orlando, Florida, pre-Disney and pre-air conditioning! It is smack dab in the middle of the state and hot hot hot in summer, which is 9 months of the year. We used to powder our sheets after our showers to keep us from sticking to them. I will probably get some kind of cancer from breathing in the talc and whatever else they put in there, but it sure felt nice.

                    Thanks Ayla.

                    Yes, the weather over the past week has been *ridiculous* here too, over 40 on several days. It was 36 degrees when I went to bed at midnight the other night. Ack. Of course, today it's only going to be 20, and I just got rained on when I was out on my walk. *shakes head*

                    For those O/S who don't know, Australia is having record-breaking temperatures this summer, and huge swathes of the country are on fire or under catastrophic fire warnings. Eh, we're used to that. But I heard on the news that yesterday we set a new record for the hottest average national temperature - OVER 40 DEGREES NATIONAL AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURE! (Gwamma, you'd better stay away for a few months, sweetheart ).
                    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

                    • yeah its been so crappy I don't do heat well. So grateful for aircon.
                      Christ I am just not moving much at the moment, due to the awful pain I have in my back, so am posting heaps. Been updating my journal a bit about it all. Having a really down day about everything
                      At least I haven't gone for a binge, so that is something.

                      • I've plugged in all my macros for the day and while making dinner I feel like I could eat an entire cow. I'm not sure if its due to being tired and feeling like I want to cry, but it's taken everything I've had to not tear into those damn donuts at work. I'm actually wondering if skipping on lunch was a bad move on my behalf. My emotional issues have nothing to do with my spouse. I really just want to cry today. I'm not sure if I should just eat until I'm full or let myself starve, especially since I'm so close on macros and over on fat.

                          I think that I will stay this side for a while, and always a bed or three if you want to escape for a bit !!!!

                          Ayla you wee thing - try and push through this down time. We are here for you, and we all understand those days.
                          Go with the flow - and keep smiling !

                            Oh Geo - hugs coming your way too !!!!! I must admit that when I first tried high fat last year - I was really low for ages. I actually upped my intakes of magnesium, zinc, and added a multi vit for a while. This time I haven't been low at all, however am only 5 minutes into it !!!!!

                            • Geo, maybe you should just find a comfy corner and cry it out? Then have a nice cup of tea and maybe a soothing bath. Do something to pamper yourself that doesn't have to do with food. You made it through the donuts? You deserve a pamper.

                              You know sometimes our emotions don't have anything to do with food or what we are eating, and so food is not going to fix them. (not trying to be a smart ass here, I just know that when I am following a new eating plan I blame everything on what I am eating or what I am not allowed to eat).

                              • Geo, I think if you are feeling real hunger you should eat, rather than starve.
                                Can you have a relaxing bath or something to chill?
                                I am feeling much the same today

                                Thanks Gwamma, appreciate the thoughts. Its days like today I wish I had a real mother ya know, I have never had any one there for me growing up, and now even at 31 years old I wish I had that. No good trying to talk to mine, no way.
