Thanks!, how are you doing?
My N=1 experiment. 1. Cut way back on dairy and nightshades and -obviously- grains 2. take a flavorless shot of calories in the form of coconut oil middle of a 2 hour flavorless time span 3. take a 1 hour nap
Yesterday...not a successful day, I only managed the EVCO shot, no nap, and I had a small homemade pretzel (grain). Today is a new day.
We were supposed to have company last night, but they thought it was tonight, so they didn't show. But I had skipped my nap so I could clean and cook. I made small homemade soft pretzels for them to have with the homemade beer, and had one of those. And now they are coming tonight. Of course now I have no need to "taste" the finished pretzel (I don't really drink beer, so no problem there). I will take the nap today, the house is already clean.
I will continue reprinting these goals until they are ingrained in my head! I believe that following my n=1 tasks will make these much more likely.
VLC (net), moderate protein, high fat
No added sugars or flour
No restrictions, goals or limits on veggies
Eat only when physically hungry (tummy growling)
Still shooting for a total of 6
Fiber: 5 NET CARBS: 33
Result:261.0 down another .2 but technically still maintenance. Still hopeful. Actually, if I could just lose .2 every single day that would be like 6 pounds a month, I would be thrilled with a loss every month!
Thankfulness: We live across from a small University. Last night (and every year the night before the 4th) they did a fireworks display, a very good one. We walked down the street and sat in the grass and watched. Before the show they do a concert with their student orchestra and singers (VERY GOOD). With the fireworks they play a montage of Freedom themed music. I cannot watch that and not be extremely thankful for living where I live...small town (within a city) in USA, and think of all of the sacrifices made by so many so that I can live here in Freedom. Very thankful indeed!
