Started fitday analysis on my food journal the other day. Averaging 40% of my calories from carbs :-( I need to make SERIOUS changes. Today is 7/3/09 and my own personal independence day! I am commited to cutting the sugar from my diet!
Exciting addendum to Day 10. (Exciting for me at least). Last night was the 1st night that I can remember (honestly, the very 1st night I remember) where I din't have anything to eat after dinner. No dessert, no snack, no munchies, nothing! Wow! P.S. I'm down 2.1 lbs since 6/15 when I started trying this. Hooray! :-)
No post for 7/3/09--changed note books and forgot to bring it with me to log on line...
Posting July 4th weekend. Not too bad for a 1st timer w/a 3-day holiday even though I forgot Friday's notes. Not perfect I admit but not bad either.

Coffee (w/heavy cream), water. M/V & Krill. Walked & CF WOD. Weight is back up from day 10. I really must have over did it. Oh well, I've never been able to maintain anything under 140. That's just gonna be me I guess. ;-( Be healthy and forget the rest!
Vacationing as primally as possible. Not logging anything right now (or posting much for that matter) but paying close attention to what I eat and drink and so far so good!
7/6 was a bad day. It's better now. I need to learn not to make the scale numbers so important. Old habits die really hard sometimes. I'm losing again so maybe that's why I can say that but none the less it's something I need to work on.
Love that motto- be healthy and forget the rest! Have fun on vacay.
Back from vacation and not too much worse for the ware. Stayed as primal as possible except for 1 day when it was just carb city. Funny though, when I went to bed that night I had heartburn to beat the band and an upset stomach most of the next day. I managed to maintain my weight through-out and got myself back on track w/shopping trips to Trader Joes, Whole Foods and the Co-op I belong to. I'm loaded up on fresh/organic fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, butters, eggs, etc. I also started a new vitamin plan w/MV, Krill, CoQ10 & Magnesium. I'm thinking I need to give it 60-days before I start to feel any results if I'm actually going to feel any at all. Anyway...

30 days in. My goal for the next 30 days is to stay on track, keep learning and to eat cleaner (no sugar--way less carbs--maybe a little more fat), possibly try the IF thing but I actually get shaky thinking about that one. I also need to start tracking protein/carbs & fat but fitday can be a real chore. I have to look into the others like dailyplate and see if they are anymore user friendly.
