    Primal Blueprint Journal (Katja)

    Day 1!

    Food:
    Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled, 3 oz raspberries, coffee with cream
    Lunch: 1 sausage, 2 large zucchini sauteed with garlic
    Snack: 1/2 oz almonds, 1/2 oz coconut, handful of cherry tomatoes
    Dinner: 6 oz salmon, roasted carrots and brussels sprouts, 1/2 glass white wine

    Exercise:
    Stretches for back
    8.3 mile racing wheelchair push

    Thoughts:
    Because I want to lose fat, it's time to get serious, cut fruit down to <=1 serving per day, cut out the sugar in my coffee, take it easy on the nuts, and keep carbs between 50-100 grams. Carbs today: 70 grams.

    Day 2

    Food:
    Breakfast: 2 eggs, scrambled, mushrooms sauteed in butter, 1 tomato, coffee with cream
    Lunch: 1 leg of duck, 1/2 cup sweet potato cubes, spinach, cranberries, walnuts, 3 oz cheese
    Snack: handful of cherry tomatoes
    Dinner: 5 oz steak, beet greens, carrots, brussels sprouts, cherry tomatoes, 1/2 beet

    Exercise:
    A fair amount of pushing around campus to go to meetings

    Breakfast didn't hold me for long, and I was desperate for lunch by about 10:30 or 11:00. Coffee without sugar is making me very cranky.

    Day 7:

    I spent this evening and the following day with my husband at the racetrack, so this was the first time I had to make sure I would have something to eat. No hassles from anyone except my husband.

    Food:
    Breakfast: 3 eggs, scrambled, 2 slice bacon, tomatoes with pesto, coffee with cream
    Snack: beef jerky, some nuts
    Dinner: a bratwurst with ketchup (I got to the track too late to have dinner with everyone else. My husband presented me with a plate with a cold bratwurst with ketchup ("All the mustard was gone"), bun, and potato salad. I ate the brat and tossed the rest.)

    Exercise: Ha!

    Carbs: 22

    Day 8

    Breakfast: aspargus/bacon frittata (made the day before and brought with me), coffee with evaporated milk (cause that's what there was)
    Lunch: chicken salad (made the day before and brought with me), a couple of tomatoes and a cucumber
    Snack: nuts & coconut
    Dinner: a couple of pork chops and a couple of tomatoes
    Snack: 6 dates

    Thoughts:
    frustrated, tired. I want easy food (bread, ice cream, fries). I want my husband to support me in this. If I stop doing this, is it back to 1200 calories a day?
    Carbs: 57
