I have been doing IF since May but i do it ususally once per week. or when I know I have endulged a little too much previous days. But never on days I go for my walks. Dh has a hard time believing I can go all day and not even snack. I tell him the hardest time is around 2:30-4pm It's when I get snacky. But I find if I can stay busy and get through that time when it comes time to eat, it makes any food choice sound wonderful. I opted for a draft beer instead of wine - it was a lite beer so probably less carbs. and I just had appetizers for dinner. Then we went over to our warehouse store place called BJ's. And bought this:
Yes they are alllllll Ribeyes. We bought a rib eye roast and had the butcher slice it. Not all of them are "pretty" rib eyes, but they are all beautiful steaks yep. so last night DH decides to throw some on the grill. He is NOT allowed to cook steaks for me any more. I like mine almost rare so medium rare. He left them on there so long the steak was dry. YUK. I ate one piece and put it back on the stove. I ate green beans for dinner last night, it's okay I will survive, we did have some milk and cookies, so that's my 20%.
I took the rest of the steaks and vaccum sealed them and froze them - i see one of those in my future maybe tomorrow. hehe.
I also have chicken and porkchops I have to separate and seal.
I would go head to head with anyone who has a two year old and trade them for teenagers. DS is being such a spoiled brat - We as parents do not have to provide these ungreatful people anything but the necessary needs to stay alive. And yet I get insulted because we do not have the latest in internet technology. I specifically asked him not to do something online one day and he did it anyway so now he is no longer allowed on the wifi or the internet with out one of us being here, (no it wasn't porn). It's not fair, he says. So today he wants to get on the Xbox which is fine so i open the wifi portal for the game in the middle of updating he's trying to get on and it kicks him out 3x he gets up and say this is it! I don't even want to play anymore this crappy connection, at my dad we could have 3 laptops running .... I said go to your dad's then! then he turns it around and says why are you gettin mad at me because I wanted to stop palying I said because you insulted something you don't have to pay for and you are acting like a spoiled brat. - I've said it before, I now know why some species eat their young. geesh.
HAHAHA!!! Yes, so true! We have raised a generation of "entitler's" .......... they believe what ever they want should be freely given to them, without question, and without payment.
What will happen when they take over the running of our planet? Wasn't it the 70's that was the ME generation? I believe this one is far worse!
I have been studying peeps. I am also fighting a head/throat cold. Don't know where this came from.
So I have been trying to relax and get my sleep but sleep has been sparse.
I can't get to sleep and then when I finally do I wake up like 1 hour later.
I'm tired I'm grumpy, I have an exam this coming monday and I have no one to blame but me. grrrrrr. lol.
I'm not bitter just tired. I am going to go pick up a book today at about learning how to live a rational life. I guess how to take things with a grain of salt so that life is a little more bearable at least for me. it seems like lately i'm being tugged on from all directions and I'm feeling very co-dependant at the moment, and I don't know how I got this way it has seemed to happen over the last few years. it's just not me and I don't like it. I have the eating part of my life figured out and it's not magically fixing things so i just did a little self - investigation and realized I'm becoming less of an independant person as far as emotions go. In the field i want to go in, that has to change. :) So I am a work in progress. :)
Ah, we are all works in progress. Getting the eating right is a lot, but it's not our whole life now, is it?
Those rib-eyes are gorgeous!
And just remember the parents' standard mantra, "It's just a phase. It's just a phase. It's just a phase." Sometimes I think we should have it tattooed!
Okay justa checkin:
Eating has been "eh" I am slowly progressing back to NO grains ALL THE WAY. We have had birthdays and cook outs now that the weather is getting more enjoyable. I like the fact that we can go and do these things but I get tired of explaining myself.
I do know that once I added yogurt back into the diet "things" got better.
I took my first Respiratory exam the other day (it wasn't hard) I got a 108. So that's a great start to the semester. I got to dissect a brain the other day, that was cool. (I did take pictures but will spare you)
The Rib eyes are very good but they have to be cooked right - I believe they are more fatty than the usual ribeyes and the meat flavor suffers from this.
Nothing much else going on gradually reducing my eating window every day until I reach a full 24 hour fast which isn't hard i just cut back my time to eat every day by an hour so today it's 11am tomorrow 12 the next 1pm and so on.
We are going to a wedding reception tomorrow night for a some friend of DH and I really dont know him but I will have to be Designated Drive I'm sure. No worries.
I'm off to work. :)
I wouldn't mind brain pictures! I have thought about donating my body to science, and it would be neat to see what it would be doing.
108? Out of what? Must be good, either way.
There were extra credit questions on the test after all the regular ones I got a 100 then got all the extra credit questions right plus got 2 more points for taking the exam within the first 2 days it was offered.
Todays eating window will start at 12 I think I will boil some eggs and take them with me to class.
We are going to that reception tonight, I have to stop and get a gift certificate, as they are older and have everything they need so I think money would suffice. :) Oh yeah and a pretty card.
When my hubs and I got married (coming up on 2 years on the 10th) we had been together for 10 years and already had everything so we didn't really need gifts just money for the Honeymoon. We went to Canada the next spring to Niagra Falls. (which was breathtaking) :) I would not mind going back, but I want to go to Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon first :)
We are supposed to have our first BIG exam next weekend and I hope he reviews today.
Here's to a Grain free day!
