Congrats on being below 180!
Congrats on being below 180!
Today: small amount of damn fine chicken and broccoli for breakfast. lunch at chipotle (salad, chicken/steak, mild/medium salsa, guac.). dinner at carrabas (family's choice), marsala steak with broccoli/cauliflower, cesar salad. stomach ache now. We had dinner around 9:30-10.. isn't it too soon to be having a bad reaction? (and to what? veg oils? trace gluten from the croutons I picked out of the salad?)
Today: went to trader joes, super happy there is a location near my parents now! I ate: brunch out, hamburger with onions, fried egg, and American cheese (!), cole slaw (I'm betting there was sugar involved), and a bite of orange. Stopped at roadside peach stand, had a bite of a peach, brought some home that should be ripe tomorrow. I also ate a few dark chocolate cacao nibs from trader joes, some nori chips (have canola oil). Went out for dinner, Cobb salad, blue cheese, ranch dip. At least I haven't had any alcohol since I cracked down on the paleo. Felt kind of deprived when everyone else was having beer while we were watching the game. I wonder how long being this strict is sustainable.
Boo, Sunday night. On our way back from my parents' house. Today slept in, walked about 3 miles on beach (found some neat seashells and sharks teeth). Came home and ate some sausage, half a peach, more seaweed snack. Then I had some guac dip (with some corn and black bean salsa mixed in), I dipped broccoli in it, but I probably only had a couple tablespoons. Then for dinner, sausage (we went to this really neat German deli that makes all kinds of sausage), roasted tomatoes, peppers and onions. Lastly, 2 squares of amazing 30% hazelnut chocolate from trader joes. Amazing! Feeling guilty for feeling guilty about chocolate (omg! 18 carbs!) :p
Monday. Day 14. scrambled eggs with smoked sausage. leftover brazillian curry. handful of trader joe's macadamia trail mix. a peach. a burrito bowl from chipotle with white rice AND sour cream. I did go to Zumba this afternoon, and I walked about a mile around campus. I plugged in most of my food data for the day and I'm around 70 carbs. I'm seriously tempted to have another piece of that hazelnut chocolate. maybe i can resist though!
I want to mention that I think in general my mood and energy levels have been better/more stable. And I really enjoyed Zumba yesterday!
Today I did the fitness eval for the primal blueprint fitness strength training, and I scored a level 1 for all 4. Feels semi-lame. I think my problem is impatience. I want results, and I want them now, and I don't care that it's only been 2 weeks, I want to be skinny already :p need an attitude adjustment.
Eating: eggs scrambled with onion and smoked sausage for breakfast and lunch, plus carrots and guac at lunch. Dinner: trader joes all natural cocktail pups (!) plus a peach and part of a steak. Weird eating day. Need to go to the grocery store. Maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow I'm giving my first shot to a patient. I'm pretty excited. Maybe I'll be more scared tomorrow.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, I resisted that chocolate yesterday and today. Yay me! (but I was 179.4 this morning, which made me unhappy. I should probably get rid of the scale.)
Congrats on your progress so far! It's been nice to read through some of your posts and see your progress :)
Today was pretty cool! I gave my first injections as a nursing student. Then, I took our dog to the dog park. Then, I went on a 12-mile bike ride, and I saw 2 turkeys, 2 deer, and a snake. also a squirrel tried to kill me. but I survived. Tomorrow I don't have class, so time to catch up on readings and studying and dishes and laundry. at least I can sleep in ;)
I ate: 1.5 steaks over the course of the day, plus sauerkraut at breakfast, broccoli/guac at lunch. For dinner we had a salad with some pepperoni, bacon bits, and parmesan cheese, and then the leftover Brazilian chicken from PaleOMG, plus mashed cauliflower and roasted carrots. And a handful of trader joe's nuts-raspberry-chocolate trail mix after my bike ride this afternoon. I really want to eat the last peach, but I ate too much for dinner :p also, BF is in BIG TROUBLE because he ate the rest of that 30% hazelnut bar, and I was hoping to have a square after my bike ride :p It sounds like I ate a lot today.
still at 179. go down scale! trying to figure out whether I need to actually change some stuff around (food amounts, types, etc), or if I just need to keep doing what I'm doing and give it a couple weeks to see what happens. This is only like day 16 or something.
Today I ate: sausage/fried eggs/sauerkraut for brunch. chicken drumstick (heroin spice blend recipe, including parmesan cheese), broccoli (I breathe... I'm Hungry's recipe with mayo and sriracha), salad with avocado and tomato. 1/2 peach, plus some raspberries, and 1/2 square dark chocolate with almonds.
Friday Friday Friday! Today I went to Zumba, which was lots of fun. Same instructor as Monday. also discovered possible infestation of black widow spiders outside of our apartment (?!).
Eating: 1 steak, roasted carrots, mashed cauliflower, broccoli with guac. dinner: 2 chicken drumsticks, zoodles, salad with guac, tomato, bacon bits, Well Fed dressing.
I weighed myself this afternoon, 178.2! yay! I wonder if it will be the same in the morning??
