Lunch: beef bolognaise, cos lettuce, carrot, 1/2 tomato, cucumber and mushroom salad.
Dinner: hubby desparately wanted dominoes pizza and beers for the state of origin but I totally forgot and made Chicken Coconut Thai Green Curry with steamed veges before he came home. Whoops!

Had a really nice day at work, happy kids make for a quick easy day.
Breakfast: ran out of eggs! Vaalia natural yogurt with mixed berries. A little nibbling on salad stuff whilst making lunch.
Morning Tea: carrot and celery sticks, 1/2 tomato and a pear.
Lunch: Green Thai Curry with mixed steam veges - silverbeet, broccoli, carrot, zucchini.
Dinner was out with a friend, ordered pork belly on a sweet potato and cabbage mash. Also then finished off a friends lamb shanks. Lol. I'm such a grub. Love my food. :D
Dessert: soy chai latte from McDonald's. It was yummy but unnecessary.
Enjoyed my evening.

I'm thinking I need more protein? Happy for criticism, I want to be the healthiest I can be.
Should have definitely found me some protein. Big binge over lunch eating absolutely everything in sight. Dang it!
Breakfast: silverbeet, egg, red capsicum, tomato, carrot and bacon.
Morning Tea: celery and carrot sticks, 1/2 tomato, and 1/4 red capsicum.
Lunch: Green Thai Chicken curry with silverbeet, broccoli, zucchini, carrot and 1/2 tomato, 4 party sausage rolls, the filling out of 1/2 a vanilla slice and 1/2 chocolate brownie. Disappointed that I didn't just walk away.
Dinner: eating at Mums.
I think I just kept eating because I was there and it was there. I didn't bring it and it was out just because of a party that was being had. I didn't need to eat it and I'm heaps disappointed that I kept eating. Another day to put on the forgive and forget list.
I'll be back soon with final breakdown for today.
Dinner at Mums was yummy. Ate too much again but enjoyed it all.
Entree: antipasto platter with sundries tomatoes, black olives, Danish feta and cabannosi. Not entirely primal but completely scrumptious.
Main: porterhouse steak, sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot and a little potato mash. Lots of heavy vegetable carbs. :(
Didn't go for dessert because I ate lots of entree.
Difficult to add up today but definitely double my usual daily intake, the sausage rolls were my biggest disappointment but as I am beginning to say way too often 'tomorrow is a new day' to begin again. :D
I'm beginning to think I'm just going to put all of May in the 'forgive and forget' list. I've had it together for a few days, but I already now Thursday and Friday this week will be bad.
Also - definitely think you need more protein, roughly around 100g for a woman...maybe 90 for you if you're shorter?
Also...vanilla slice and brownie! Heaven. I'd regret eating the sausage rolls though - I always do and am always unsatisfied. Nothing worse than wasting calories on something that isn't even that good!
Gonna start working on getting more protein in this week. May has been a little forgive and forget for me too. Haven't exercised nearly enough and my expanding hips and waistline show it clearly. Disappointed but not going to dwell on it too long.
Breakfast: bacon an egg and a grilled tomato.
Lunch: 2 sausages
Dinner: 2 eggs and veges
Snacks: banana, mandarine, 3 or 4 hot chips bowl of vaalia yogurt and mixed berries with cocoa.
Went to the footy and resisted all the yummies, it was really easy and I felt good about myself. :D
Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs with 20g garlic butter. Bowl of mixed berries with vaalia natural yogurt and cocoa.
Morning Tea: black tea and 4 brazilnuts.
Lunch: beef and vegetable cuppa soup and some sundried tomatoes.
Dinner: chicken breast, cream, bacon and mushrooms, cauliflower, carrot and zucchini rice.
Dessert: half a small freddo.
Happy day. Cup of soup is definitely not primal but the other option was cuppa noodles so I chose the lesser of two evils. Hehe.

Weigh in tonight. Eek. Pretty sure I won't have lost nothing. 1/3 of the way through a fat loss competition and pretty sure I'll be the only one that's gained weight. Sad face.
Thanks for your comments on my journal...if you do see a doc, I reckon try for a female GP. I think they
may be more likely to be sympathetic to weight and hormonal issues. I think males GPs just don't *get* it.
