    Well, I fell off the wagon there for half a year. *sigh* Having family undermine you and friends try to sabotage you really makes things rough. I finally decided enough was enough on Sunday and I'm going to give this another go. I have a few friends who got into Crossfit recently and are testing the Paleo waters, so I'm hoping that I'll have some backup in group gatherings. I think I've finally gotten through to my mom as well on the whole grains things so, we'll see.

    Sunday, August 19, 2012:
    154 lbs.
    5'6"
    Bust: 36 in.
    Waist:29 in.
    Hip: 40 in.
    Thigh: 20 in.


    Monday, August 20, 2012:
    152.4 lbs.

    Breakfast - a mug of black tea
    Lunch - Trader Joe's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, Trader Joe's Very Cherry Frozen Berries, Trader Joe's Grean Beans & Greens Mixed Vegetables
    Snack - 10 pecan halves
    Dinner - Approx. 10 grapes, approx. 2 oz. Trader Joe's Chianti Sausage, 2 egg omelet with 1 oz. horseradish cheese

    Exercise - 1 hour of Pure Barre class


    Tuesday, August 21, 2012:
    150.8 lbs.

    Breakfast - starving, so had four-five pieces of spicy tuna roll sushi
    Snack - 10 pecan halves
    Lunch - Trader Joe's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, Trader Joe's Very Cherry Frozen Berries mixed with cottage cheese, Trader Joe's Grean Beans & Greens Mixed Vegetables
    Snack - Wendy's 1/4 lb. patty with cheese, plain
    Dinner - Approx. 20 grapes, approx 2 oz. Trader Joe's Chianti Sausage, 2 eggs scrambled with 2 tbsp. salsa, 1 slice of tomato

    Exercise - Skipped Pure Barre class because I was so hungry. Figured I might be doing more harm than good.



    Unsurprisingly, I woke up this morning at 151.2 lbs, but it's a marathon, not a sprint. I'm just going to strive to do a little better each day and see where that gets me. I figure consistency is more important than perfection. Just cutting grains watching my processed foods is a big step in the right direction. Everything else will come with time.

    Oh yes, the day-to-day weight wobbles mean very little. It's the overall direction that matters.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    And realistically, it's only been a few days. I don't have that much to lose either, so I'm not going to see the dramatic, made-for-tv weightloss anyway.

    Dramatic weight loss usually means rapid weight regain anyway. Slow and steady is definitely the winner in this race.

    I believe in you. Spend time with the people who help and who care. The rest don't deserve your energy!

    151.2 lbs

    Breakfast - green tea, 10 pecan halves
    Lunch - Trader Joe's Turkey Meatloaf Muffins, Trader Joe's Very Cherry Frozen Berries mixed with cottage cheese, Trader Joe's Grean Beans & Greens Mixed Vegetables
    Snack - String cheese stick, a small scoop of tuna salad
    Dinner - Burger patty with blue cheese, bacon, and balsamic, fries, 1 Strongbow Cider

    Exercise - Nada

    Yesterday, I had a date at a local pub, which accounts for the semi-slide out of primal. But, I only had one drink, and I didn't even miss the burger bun. Since it was a first date, I didn't want to look too picky with my order, but I think I made semi-decent choices overall. I woke up today at the same weight, which made me happy. Usually I bloat right up when I have beer and burgers, but having only one cider and eliminating the bun seemed to fix a lot of these problems. I'm guessing I'm more gluten intolerant than I thought, which makes me definitely want to keep at this. I'm already starting to mull meal plan ideas for next week. I've found a few good recipes that really look appealing.

    At least the meal went well. The date was a bit of a dud, ha.

    Snack - 10 pecan halves
    Dinner - 2 hardboiled eggs, Trader Joe's Chianti sausage, 2 radishes (the spiciest ones I've ever tasted, holy crap!), a cheese stick, and approx. 20 grapes.

    Exercise - not happening, since I'm sitting through three hours of class tonight. I will be so happy to have law school over and done with.

    I woke up craving a big steak covered in caramelized onions and mushrooms with a side of eggs. Alas, I had nothing in my house to satisfy such a craving. And then I got to work and one of my coworkers was eating cinnamon toast. Guess what I'm craving now?

    Instead of eating, I'm trying to figure out what to have for lunch, as I'm out of things to pack. I did manage to put together a healthy dinner, so at least I won't be falling off the wagon later, but I'm struggling with what to go get/order at lunch. Checking out the local menus - so far not impressed, even with the gluten free options. Here's hoping I find something to eat, since I'm nowhere near ready to IF. I'm still in that ravenous hunger phase that always happens when I first cut out grains and lower my carbs.

    Found a few options by digging online. First Watch has a couple omelets that I could get with a side of greens instead of an English Muffin. They also have a hash that looks good, so that's a few possibilities. There's a BBQ place I could order takeaway from that's not too terrible, although the sauce probably isn't great. Or I could get lettuce wraps and soup or stir fry veggies from the Asian place. They don't use MSG or trans fat oils, but I'm guessing the actual oils they use aren't the best. I'm guessing the cooking oils from any place I go are going to be bad, so....decisions, decisions.

    City BBQ isn't too bad if you eat the meat and the green beans. I'm just personally not a fan of them. Out here in J-town, we have a BBQ joint where I get brisket or pulled pork with Carolina sauce(vinegar based) and greens or broccoli salad. If you like Bob Evans, order the omelets al a carte and get a side of bacon. How are the Trader Joe's mini turkey meatloaf muffins? Do you cook at all? If you need help with recipes, let me know.

    Hey, glad to see you back and posting. it can be hard when people (family, friends) dont get what your doing. Its at that moment when you decide to slide or try and educate, OR just say you arent hungry haha.

    Im wheat intolerent (gluten I think), so stopping eating bread etc was easy, and people dont stress much about it when they know that.

    try and get something in you for breakkie. Im a huge fan of omelettes - 3 eggs, a little milk, some chopped basil, salt, pepper. In the pan with some olive oil (or oil of your choice really). I then dress half of it with strawberries, rasperries, grapes, goats cheese, maybs some bacon or smoked salmon (starting to salavate), anything you like. Then fold in half and there you go, an omelette calzone.

    Sorry to hear about the date, not second date on the cards (hope he isnt a Marks daily Apple subscriber or this could be a sucky way to find out)?

    It isn't the mountains ahead that wear you out....Its the grain of sand in your shoe.
