    Primal Fuel


    I did really great at Rosh Hashanah and the wedding. I had a little red wine each night, and I didn't pig out at all or eat any junk.


    Then, my fiance and my friends and I decided to go to the Big E yesterday. It the Eastern State Expo in MA and it is the biggest fair in the Northeast. It is something that only comes around once a year and is full of my childhood memories.


    Was that any excuse to eat badly? Maybe....because I did. I did it knowingly, and I figured that it was the only time I would be able to eat all that yummy deep fried fair food.


    So now today I feel sick. Ill. I almost didn't come to work. I have never felt so sick from eating crap before.


    Maybe this is a good thing. Maybe it means my body is really adapting to the Primal lifestyle.


    I didn't weigh today and I probably won't for a few days. I need to get back on the wagon today.


    So this is not turning out to be a very good 30 day challenge because I keep messing up.


    After doing so great Friday and Saturday night, I don't know why eating fried food and cream puffs and ice cream was so much fun. I came so close to having a perfect weekend. I am disappointed in myself.

    I ended up making pizza last night because my fiance really wanted pizza. For him, I made a normal pizza dough for the crust, for myself, I used the a califlour pizza crust. I topped both pizzas with meatballs and whole milk ricotta and then shredded mozz. It was SOOO good. I actually felt really guilty eating it because it was just like normal pizza. I think I made my "crust" a little too thin though, it couldn't support my heavy toppings! It was delish!

    Day 2 of my challenge!


    Yesterday was good, I skipped kickboxing and took my dogs on a 3 mile walk. It felt really good to be outside. I also skipped my veggies with dinner because I had a snack of pork rinds before my walk (I was very hungry) so I just had steak. That cut my carbs way down for the day!


    Today I am trying to go VLC again, under 20. I want to kick start my fat burning and undo the damage I did this past weekend.


    Breakfast- 2 eggs, 4 strips bacon


    Lunch- leftover steak (8 ounces or so) and pork rinds if needed

    Day 3!!!!


    Yesterday was great, I finished the day at 5 carbs! I skipped my broccoli with dinner. I actually kind of skipped dinner all together because I wasn't hungry, but then around 8pm I got really hungry so I had a few pieces of cheese and some pepperoni.


    I took another nice long walk with the dogs and my fiance last night too.


    My fiance was eating cookies last night and he was like "these are the best cookies I have ever had, here, have one" when I refused, he tried to get me to have a bite. When I refused the bite he came over, put the cookies in my face and was like "but they are SOOOO good". Seriously? I have issues with self control and I don't need cookies shoved in my face. They smelt fantastic by the way. I didn't cave though! I feel like that was a small success.


    Today's plan:

    Breakfast- 2 eggs, 1 egg white cooked in butter, 4 strips of bacon


    Lunch- Chicken breast with hot sauce, fresh mozzerella


    Dinner- Broiled mahi-mahi, side of broccoli


    Workout- Maybe kickboxing, maybe another walk.


    Calories- 1553

    Fat - 46.1% (80 grams)

    Protein - 49.4% (192 grams)

    Carbohydrates - 2.9% (11 grams)

    My fat is a lot lower today than yesterday, I wonder if I will get hungry?

    Day 4!


    I was great again yesterday. Instead of having mahi-mahi for dinner. I decided that a porterhouse steak sounded SO much better. So I had a nice big juicy steak for dinner and maybe half a cup of broccoli. I didn't even want the broccoli but my fiance is starting to think I am crazy so I ate it to appease him.


    After dinner my fiance was eating cookies again and he tried to get me to have one. I had to yell at him. I don't need him trying to derail me every night.


    I had some sugarfree chocolate in the fridge and I thought about having a piece, but I resisted and I am glad I did.


    I know my calories were really high because of the steak but I don't realy care. It was awesome and my carbs were like 6 grams yesterday!


    Today:

    Breakfast: 2 eggs cooked in butter, 4 strips bacon, coffee with cream and 2 splenda. (I have cut back from 3 splenda...baby steps.)


    Lunch- planning to skip


    Dinner- We are going to a party. I am making stuffed mushrooms that are stuffed with sausage and cheese so I know I can eat that, but I think I might have a high fat/protein meal before i leave so I am not even tempted to eat anything bad.

    I might have a couple glasses of wine. Maybe not! We will see....

    I did it!!! I made it through the weeked being about 80% primal!!!


    I did have a craving for chocolate on Saturday, especially after watching everyone eat cake and ice cream Friday night. So I took some sugar free chocolate and dipped it into almond butter. It was the perfect solution. Craving gone!


    I had a glass of wine Friday, a couple glasses on Saturday and a glass Sunday, but no "binge" drinking at all. I just enjoyed wine with my meals.


    I weighed myself this morning. Maybe I should have waited because the scale discourages me, but the number was 127.


    This is a survival week and I am determined to suceed!


    Breakfast- 2 eggs cooked in bacon, 4 strips thick but bacon


    Lunch- homemade chili (no beans)


    Dinner- Steak with a side of asparagus


    Workout- Urban Bootcamp
