@Sabine- hahaha I'm glad I remind you of balls ;) ... Think... :P too funny!
@Judg and Dashfire- I was thinking of doing a progress photo at 70lbs off... hopefully shouldn't be too much longer... but I do agree it's been too long and I think to a certain degree it would be humbling
So I figured out my energy issue... What I thought was bad sleep. Combination of inadvertently not getting enough fat and not getting enough sugar... all at the same time. This past week I had given up the breakfast milkshake (that I usually have with meat on the side) because earlier in the week I had a coconut milkshake with older coconut milk and threw it up. At the same time I found a pre made paleo salad dressing at the organic grocery store so I had stopped making my dressing which usually has nut butter in it... and on top of that I had run out of salmon oil and was avoiding the grocery store like the plague... all in all I've essentially cut out too much fat and too much sugar... well I fixed that all today. Picked up some salmon oil caps to go with my mct oil to start the day fatwise and I started my day with the usual coconut milkshake. Even had some trailmix and a small chocolate milk at lunch to get things up and running (well those are technically because I forgot my packed lunch at home but that's besides the point!) Feeling better already!
Breakfast- Piece of roast, 1 hard boiled egg, 2 squares of g and b 85
Lunch- chicken wings and an avacado
Dinner- (complete experiment based on a recipe I saw on master chef) Crab rolled scotch eggs with a small piece of steak on the side, some cherry tomatoes, and a big ass salad
Exercise- 6.5km barefoot walk
Supplements- 6000ui vit D, 2tbsp of mct
Breakfast- 1 hardboiled egg, coconut milkshake
Lunch- pack of trailmix and a small chocolate milk
Dinner- 2 chicken thighs, steak, 1 hard boiled egg, big ass salad, 3 squares G and B 85
Supplements- forgot them this morn... Eh, i'll start fresh tomorrow
Exercise- does running in circles barefoot in the coolest rainstorm ever count?
Please pray for me, I may have some news tomorrow that I don't want to hear and I can't/probably shouldn't post any speculations until I know.
Not enough sugar? *tries to wrap her primal head around that one*
well specifically not enough carbohydrate. Your body needs harbohydrate to a certain degree... not as much as SAD eaters eat but there is a point where sugar is needing for short term fuel as well. I was lurking into the 20-30grams or so a day area when I should be between 50-100g's a day

Anything to update on this front??
Hey Metric, At this time I can't post about it. But thanks for checking in on me :). I know what it is and I'm in a good place but it's one of those things that I can't discuss outside of work (with work being in the press n whatnot a lot lately)
Quick food journal for yesterday
Breakfast- Coconut milkshake (no coco but a ton of vanilla!... It tasted like strawberry/vanilla ice cream!), 1 hard boiled egg
Lunch- 2 chicken thighs, 2 cups mixed veggies
Dinner- Creamy pesto alfredo made with coconut milk, butter, parmasean, pesto, jalapeņo paste, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, parseley all over speghetti squash.
Was at the kitchener multi cultural festival today. Filled with good food! (though not the best for me but eh, I loved it!) I'll post food tomorrow as per norm :)
Well... probably my most unpaleo day in my 7 months and 1 day of doing paleo so far... I'm just going to list out food as there was no real "meals" set for the day.
1 Jamacan Patty
Couple slices of Summer sausage with spicy mustard
2 Pieces of G and B 85% Dark Chocolate
1 Double Black Russian (Kaluah and vodka)
1 Cigarette (I didn't eat it obviously but I should declare it for the day)
Eh, guess we all need a day to let it go. Oops... I've been much better today though :)

Yop yop! But try healthier carbs in the form of starches. Welcome potatoes back into your life in all their wonderful glory. And squash. I'm feeling good and not gaining weight by eating a lot more of them and don't have out of control cravings with them either.
So I had a much better consumption day yesterday than 2 days ago. Quite happy with it all really. Over all it was acutally a really good day yesterday- church, reading, book study, and a fundraiser for a friend who's going on a mission to Rwanda. Also ran into an old friend from high school and was able to buy her cd! All in all full of energy and rearing to go! That being said it's set to be a crappy week at work- tons to do and almost too much exposure (aka too many things that can go wrong in front of upper management). Oh well! We'll see how it goes!
