    Day 17-

    Wonderful day yesterday.


    Started it off with my belly dancing class. I love this class, it's a great mix of ballet and then well, belly dancing- just lots of fun and good exercise.


    Brk 9am- about 1/2 of a roasted chicken with some coconut oil

    Lunch 2pm- 4.1 oz organic beef patty with 1.5 cup jicama and 1 ounce avocado and red salsa. Still a bit hungry so had 1 can of sardines.

    Snack- 6pm- 3 oz beef with salsa verde.

    Dinner 8:45pm- 2 oz pork skin sauteed with 3 oz ground pork and red salsa.


    3 liter H20

    Dance Class

    Walked for 2 hours, approx.

    Vitamins.


    I'm over half way through my 30 day challenge and am feeling really good. Abundant energy, happy- just great. I really think adding more into my diet is going to forever change me positively.


    Now I'd like to change my strength routine to lift really heavy things, but I need help learning how to do this. Right now I'm working each body part on 4 sets, about 1-12 reps. Takes me an hour. Ideas are welcome!

    Day 18-

    Buenas Dias Amigos.

    Grok is Softball, thank you for the suggestions- I will definitely do push-ups, pull-ups (I can't do a pull up yet but this is a major fitness goal of mine), squats, etc. I'm glad my food looks great. Still new to this primal thing and want to do it right!


    Brk 9am- 4 oz organic hamburger, 2 oz white fish cooked w/ coconut oil

    Snack- I was hungry! 12pm 3 oz ground pork with a little chicharron

    Lunch 2ish- a plain hamburger with small salad, olive oil dressing

    Snack- hungry again! 5pm- 3 oz ground pork with chicharron

    Dinner 9:30pm- okay, so at this point I was really, really hungry- arrachera alambre (basically marinated thinly sliced beef with a few bell peppers- grilled). 1 cup grilled onion, 1 cup raw cucumber, about 1 tbspn guacamole and 2 tbspn red salsa. Really, really delicious meal. It was big and I ate almost all of it.


    It is nice to be able to eat that dinner and not feel guilty. I've really struggled with "guilt over eating" in the past and I am so improved- feels really good.


    Today is my weigh-in day. I hope to see positive results. I am definitely doing the program. My calories have been quite a bit lower than they're suppose to be- I'm 5'11 and my "quota" is 1911 according to Fit Day. I'm averaging 1500, some days 1300. But I have just been eating when hungry............


    Okay, off to do some running- intervals.

    Besos

    Day 19-

    Buenas Dias Amigos.


    So, the results of my weigh-in? The same! Well, 0.05 different :-) It's a bit disappointing I guess- well not really. It's just that it's so motivating to see the scale move BUT my body fat percentage dropped .6% which shows my actual composition is changing and I feel AMAZING! I was under calories recommended by Fit Day most days last week, and I put my diet on another forum for a review and got really encouraging feedback. I'm doing great- so I'm just going to keep persisting and the scale will follow!


    Yesterday:

    Breakfast 4 oz white fish, 1.4 oz pork cooked in coconut oil

    Snack 2pm 1/2 can of tuna plain

    Lunch 3pm- I had almost an entire roasted chicken. Really, too much - I overate but just allowed myself to and then was done with it

    Dinner 9pm I had about 3-5 bites of a traditional Mexican dish with lettuce, radish, shredded pork, oregano, salsa, and lime. I had about 4 bites of a tortilla, corn with it. Felt good to "allow" myself to taste this traditional food without guilt.

    2:30am, had my leftover pozeria (I think that's how it's spelled!)


    It feels good to be able to eat when I'm hungry, and not when I'm not. I'm making such progress on "fear of food"....still have a ways to go, but it's better. When the scale starts to move- while I'm actually eating- then I'll be really happy!!!!

    Day 20-

    Happy Monday :-0)


    Okay, so yesterday, it was when I was going to have my "scheduled deviation". I have as my policy to have one of these a week, within an hour time frame. I didn't do so well this week, as I had corn on Saturday night unplanned but then still wanted my original planned cheat Sunday. I guess when I do this I really need to decided which I want more and then sacrifice the other instead of doing two cheats- I'm serious about losing weight right now so I need to follow my plan.


    breakfast 10am- 1/2 can of tuna fish

    lunch 12/1- salad with 4 oz white fish cooked in coconut oil

    dinner 6/7- steak with beef broth soup and some corn chips with chimichurri (olive oil, parsley, basil).

    At the movies I had about 1 oz peanuts, some pistachios and popcorn with salsa.


    I feel a little guilty for having corn on Saturday, and then more refined carbs yesterday. Okay, that's just the way it is I guess. Will work on improving this, I feel best with one scheduled deviation a week. This week I'm really going to concentrate of fat intake, keeping it high and not going over 20g of carbs a day.

    Day 21-

    I was hungry today- I ate 2100 calories. Coming from a girl who normally has been eating about 1500 this felt exorbitant- but guess what! I LOST 2 pounds! It was SO liberating to be "allowed" to eat until I was no longer hungry. Wow.


    Brk-am

    4 oz beef and 4 oz white fish cooked in coconut oil

    Snack 12pm

    3 oz beef steak and 1 cup lettuce with olive oil dressing

    Lunch and dinner- ate at 3ish and then again at 6.

    11 oz pork, 2 oz chicharron


    Also 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.


    I then slept for about 12 hours! Wowzers; interesting day!


    Walked 1 hour

    2liter H2O

    Hola Amigos! My goodness, I'm officially back from the dead! Dio Mios!


    I had the worse case of stomach infection thing ever. I have never, ever experienced that kind of pain- and hopefully never will again.


    Eating was okay, being that I virtually could not eat for 4 days- but I did eat oatmeal and fruit when I could. Meat wasn't workable, I couldn't digest it.


    It feels good to be back!


    I haven't weighed myself at all, and I'm not going to . I don't know when I will again but right now I'm using measurements, clothes, and body fat % to track myself.


    I'm "gym-less" for a month and nervous about this- what am I going to do? I'll have to ask around for some workout advice.


    Okay- today-

    Brk 9am

    2 tbsn guacamole

    2.2 oz salmon

    3 oz hamburger patty


    Lunch 3pm

    large salad with tomato, broccoli, 1 oz avocado, and 4 oz salmon, olive oil


    Snack 3 oz tuna fish with 1 oz avocado and drizzled with coconut oil


    Dinner 6pmish

    Will probably be a hamburger patty


    I continue to walk an hour a day, get good sleep ,and work on optimal health :-)
