I like the fat secret program. Its on my phone and it emails my results to me to track. Not bad for a free app.
I like the idea of putting the protein powder into my yogurt. I am going to try this tomorrow. I still have some egg white protein and when its gone, I will dig into the whey that I have.
I do think your right about the ham and the lack of diruetic. I have noticed a difference so far taking it today. In a couple of days I should be back to my new normal- hopefully. So, today instead of ham I had a can of tuna with my peas. Back pre-primal, a favorite salad of mine had pasta, tuna and peas so.. minus the pasta it was good.
I need to just drop mayo. I do not really eat it often but I do like it. I think now might be a good time to experiment with various mustards.
Chicken livers! LOVE THEM! I do not eat beef liver but understand they are much milder. I wrap them in bacon and bake at 350 for about 30-35 minutes. They should be firm and a little light pink inside is fine. So good! Those I do like with mustard as well. I have also made a primal bbq sauce for them (but not lately as tomatoes are not friendly to me).
I am glad your getting a food scale. I love mine and find it SO USEFUL!
As for a nap.. not a chance. Conferences until 8pm tonight. The good thing is that I have some gaps in my schedule I can kick back a little but the gaps are not so big I can snooze. As for lack of sleep messing with the brain, I forgot to give my DD her meds this morning, figured with conferences I had time to go get them before school because she had "late start". Well.. late start is Friday, and today is Thursday. Totally threw me for a loop this morning. I am drinking coffee though, alternating caffeine vs decaf to get through the day/afternoon/evening.
