    Today I went for a long walked. I walked 7.09 miles. I didn't feel like I had all that much energy. Walks like these use to be really easy for me, but today I found that there were hills that I didn't even know were hills just a few months ago. I don't think I've adapted yet to ketosis.. After reading all th advices on upping my carbs, I'm going to hold off for at least 6 weeks in.

    Todays Meal:
    B:4 eggs, 2cups spinach, 1tb coconut oil, 3Tb artichoke parm dip, 1/2T butter. (This was a late breakfast at noon.)
    L/D: like 6 servings of macadamia nuts. Who can count?

    I had a weird eating day today. I wanted to save my appetite for the all you can eat King Crab buffet. So i just ate 1T of coconut oil for breakfast. We got to the buffet at around 4, but by then I felt so nauseaus we didn't end up going to the buffet. Instead I grab a quick cobb salad from the deli. It wasn't very good and I couldn't really eat most of it. But I did feel better after. So lesson learned, don't eat fat alone or you get nauseas.
    Oh and I also looked up King Crab and 1 leg has like 20g of protein! Geez and I usually eat like 15 legs. That's like over 300g of protein in 1 sitting. I wonder if that's really bad?

    So my meals today are:
    B: 1T coconut oil
    L:Cobb Salad
    D: 1 can tuna with mayo, 2 boiled eggs.

    Yay! I lost 10lbs. Although the first 5 was just water weight. It was weight gain from Christmas, so I think it's probably more like 5lbs of fat. But still, sllowly but surely it is coming off.

    Today I me my friend for lunch at whole foods. I brough my own boiled eggs and avacado and just grabbed the pretossed ceasar salad from the salad bar. I really have no idea how much dressing was on that so I had to guess 4T. This is one of the reasons I don't like to go out to eat anymore. I know its silly and it shouldn't really matter. Like for dinner I had 8oz of ground beef scrambled with 3 eggs and even though I was full and could barely finish, I ate it all anyway because if I didn't, I'd be off in my calculation. I wouldn't know exactly how many eggs I ate or how much beef I ate. Silly, I know.

    So today's meal:

    B: Skipped it because I was meeting friend at 12 for lunch.
    L: 7oz Ceasar salad, 4 boiled eggs, 1 avacado.
    D: 3 eggs, 8oz ground beef, 2 cups spinach, 1T coconut oil, 1T artichoke dip.

    I skipped breakfast today because I had that big late dinner last night. So I ate my lunch at 12:30, then I got that post from Mark commanding us to skip our next meal, which would have been dinner. So I tried not to eat dinner. I did have some macadamia nuts though when I got home before working out. Then I boiled some eggs for tomorrow and had to test one, so I ate the yolk and it was soft.

    B:Skipped
    L:2 cups spinach, 5T artichoke dip, can sardines
    D:20 macadamia nuts (probably not even that many, but didn't really count.), egg yolk, avacado.

    Today I had lunch at Wholefoods again with a coworker so I don't know exact nutritional breakdown. So I gave it my best guess in fitday.

    B: Skipped - I'm just not hungry for breakfast anymore.
    L: Raw Kale salad with tahini dressing, some olives, 1tb parm cheese, some nuts and seeds sprinkled on, 1 chicken breast that was in their green curry but with no sauce.
    D: 1 avocado, 2 boiled eggs, 1 babybel, 1Tb artichoke dip.

    Today I just wasn't hungry. I'm finding that I don't want to eat as often or as much anymore. I made ground beef on monday and I wasn't too sure if I should eat it today, but I did..only half because I wasn't so sure about it.

    B: skipped
    S: macadamia nuts
    L:4oz ground beef, 3 eggs, spinach, 1T coconut oil.

    Workout:
    4 rounds of 40 seconds on 20 seconds rest:
    Rope lash, jump rope, step, kettlebell swings, planks.
    This felt way more like cardio...more like sprinting...I didn't like it.

    I'm so sleepy right now. I ate lunch today after IF since lunch yesterday. I just wasnt hungry. I went to see a show and got really hungry so we went out to eat afterwards at a mexican restaurant. I didn't even notice the chips that the others were munching on. I ordered the steak salad. It was steak strips on a bed of romaine with a boiled egg and avocado. It was very good. I also ordered a class of cabernet. I have been on VLC and have not had any alcohol since I started. Well i took a sip of this wine and it was sooooooo sweet. It tasted like grape juice to me. I have never tasted wine this sweet, so it made me realize that my taste buds have changed and things are way sweeter to me now. I didn't end up drinking the wine because I couldn't.
    Anyway so i'm not loggin in fitday today. Since I ate out, I have no idea what the macros are and I don't care right now...cuz I'm tired and i'm going to bed.
