I know I love it! It was seriously the most under-used appliance in my kitchen, and now I want to use it every day! to think I almost got rid of it!
omelete with sausage, onions, roasted red peppers, and some cheese with a small side salad
2 tacos with beef and cheese, lettuce and onion
Not much to update with, this weekend we have family visiting so I will be busy with that. On a happy note, I lost 2lbs and Dh lost 8!! So happy that he is sticking with it
Had a not so primal weekend--but I am back to it! I knew that I was going to have some grains and sweets, so I am not beating myself over it.
Tomorow I will be at the beach as long as the weather holds up, and Ifing until dinner!
Beach was great today--I love how a day at the beach puts me in such a good mood.
Coffee with cream
chicken sauteed in butter, topped with homemade sauce and mozz cheese
Will have some tea later, and thats about that
Went food shopping today and have a great menu planned for this week. I love how primal shopping is cheaper! I guess if I bought steaks it wouldnt be, but since I am on a budget I am going with the cheaper meats--chicken legs, stew meat, etc.
Tomorow I will be having some turkey-garlic roll-ups, and some homemade almond crust pizzas for dinner...
Another day at the beach--only lasted a couple of hours, but it was nice anyway.
Turkey breast, chedder cheese and bacon sandwiched between romain lettuce leaves
Cauliflower pizza---this was so good! I ate about 1/2 of 1 pizza topped with spinach, garlic and feta.
Tonight I am experiementing with some recipes I foung through some blogs. I love the internet! I dont know what i ever did without it LOL
Today is 8 days into my challenge--other than my weekend, I have been 100% primal. Feeling great! Changes that have happened since going primal:
1. Lost about 4lbs.
2. No longer am i night eating, or getting hungry
3. Cooked all of my food, and have saved money doing so
4. Psoriasis is 100X better than it was--could be bc of the beach as well, but it it basically just white now instead of red, flaky and thick
5. Clothes are feeling loser, stomach not bloated
6. Realized that when I want something sweet, a small piece of fruit is like heaven
7. DH also lost about 10lbs--all without him complaining lol
Not too bad for 8 days!
Turkey breast with garlic aioli on an "oopsie" bun
Miniscule amount of stir fry beef, simmered in the crock with some peppers, onions, and spices.
I wasnt feeling the dinner that I made, so I just had a small amount and will be frying up some eggs in a bit. I also am in LOVE with the oopsie rolls that I made. It felt like I was eating a sandwich on a bun, when in fact it was nothing but egg and cream cheese! Will be making more tonight so I can use them for other meals as well.
2 eggs fried in butter, 4 pieces of taylor ham
Few slices of turkey breast from the deli--which I got disgusted with 1/2 way through and trew it out
chicken cooked in bacon fat, topped with bacon and swiss and spinach
Full from the day, but really craving some chocolate which I will have later on. Think I will do IF 2morow for a change up. Down another pound today, so I want to keep it coming! I want to get away from my danger zone number (the number I get to when I am not watching my weight, where I am starting to be uncomfortable in my own skin...but before I get out of control huge) Last summer I was at my lowest adult weight, but blew it by stopping my healthy lifestyle and resuming a crappy SAD.
Little tired today, I think I was just having an off day.
Today I got some sort of a period (sorry, TMI) WHich is FANTASTIC, since I have "unexplained infertility" and I dont menstrate unless I take pills. So this was huge for me! More and more i realize that I HAVE to have some sort of gluten intolerance, or must be super sensitive to processed anything, bc a couple weeks in and I already am spotting. Last year when I went primal, same thing happened to me. Got to stick with this for life! My ultimate goal is to become regular and be able to conceive naturally, without any drugs! I was told by 3 fertility specialists that they have no clue what is wrong, but I will need drugs (IVF or Gonal-F injections) in order to have a baby. I am going to prove them wrong!
Not much food today:
handful of almonds
1 ounce of bittersweet chocolate
hamburger wrapped in lettuce with egg
I am trying to cut back on the dairy, at least the cheese. i think I eat too much of it since its quick, easy, filling, and oh so good. But all that dairy cant be good for my sinuses.
Realized that this is the most boring journal!
Nothing new to report--this is the start of my 3rd week primal--things have been going great! I think i will end my challenge now since it is no longer a challenge, just a lifestyle and I dont want to bore everyone!
My wife has celiac and also PCOS and when she took out the grains and sugar, she noticed that she had regular menstruation cycles. Hope it works out for you as well. good luck on your journey!
