So I figured I would split this morning's post let the sleep post stand on its own.
ok, yesterday was a fantastic day food wise. All afternoon, both before and after my nap, I was jonesin for a sweet. But what my plan now is that I will keep myself too full to be able to fit a sweet in. So while I was definitely too full to have anything I was still pining for it. So for dinner I had the rest of that beef/cabbage soup and I made myself a Shamrock smoothie. I brewed a strong cup of Vanilla tea and let it cool down, then I put that along with 1/2C of cottage cheese, 3/4C frozen broccoli, Vanilla Whey Powder, Stevia, a bit of Almond Milk, a few drops of mint extract and Xanthum into the blender. So yummy and filling and the milkshake consistency fulfilled my need for 'dessert'. I know it is not totally Primal, but it is way healthier than what I would have put in my mouth had I not had it!
I found this site....Dashing Dish | Shakes...with some great ideas, not primal but adaptable, for stuff like this. I am very excited about it.
So the STATS:
I stopped tracking sugar for now and am going to be taking turns tracking different vitamins, yesterday it was C, and I got 540% of the RDA thanks to all the veggies and the clementine I had with lunch.
All of the carbs are from the veggies, 2 fruits (blueberries & a clementine) and a serving of pistachios. No sugar or flour or grains at all.
the only thing I am trying to control is to get at least 177g of protein, and 10 veggies with 1 or 2 (at most) being a fruit. Again, the main point is to have enough nutrition and quantity so that I am too full to stuff in junk. It seems counter intuitive, but it certainly is keeping me out of the junk (and believe me the kids are making sure I am being tempted!).
Still not getting on the scale, so far, so good for me! Going to try the prescribed eccentric exercises today or tomorrow with DS. They are really very similar to Mark's essential movements so we shall see. Of course either of them will work as long as I do them right?
