    Okay, where did that food info go?

    Here's the 8th:

    Up at 5:30

    7:00 pork chop
    2 eggs in butter

    11:00 sashimi, seaweed salad, 1/2C rice, cooked fish, 2 slices canteloupe

    4:45 whipped cream with a little sugar
    2 squares dark chocolate
    4 meatballs

    9:15 2 slices swiss cheese
    1C greens

    Water: 10 glasses
    Walking: nope
    Pains: 11

    Bed at 10:00

    And the 9th:

    Up at 5:30

    4:00 1/2 kipper

    7:00 salad with meat

    2:00am diet jello with extra gelatin

    Water: 10 glasses
    Walking: nope
    Pains: 11

    Bed at 11:00
    Up at 2:00
    Back to bed at 3:30

    I was up for teenager transport to the midnight showing of 'The Great Gatsby', but my sleep in general is getting neglected this past couple of weeks. I need to work on that. Expecting a nap or early night tonight to compensate for small six hours I got last night.

    My weight is being amazing. It sort of scares me, it is so good. But maybe it is just a pattern- not too much at one time of the month, and then, whoosh! In any case, I am loving being in the 180s, even if it scares me a little.

    Took Chloe to the vet for her weekly dip. She was NOT happy. Poor little girl. I will snuggle with her profusely when she gets home.

    Lots of things to do today. My list of possibilities:
    Finish up some bags for the craft fair
    Dishes and laundry(always)
    Pesky calls
    Writing
    Sewing on Middlest's college quilt
    Drop off items for the Girl Scout garage sale
    More laundry
    Walk!
    Grocery shopping and menu planning
    Did I mention laundry?

    But first...must check others' journals! Pebbles, I'm coming at you! And Siobhan, and Jenn, and RMS, and Winencandy, and Demuralist, and Coll, and Ecks, and Honeybuns, and Alessandra, and GayPanda, and Naiadknight, and Skink, and...and...and!

    Okay, sorry laundry. No time for you today!

    I put off laundry for fun too. Your list of stuff to do makes me tired!

    Hmm...quite a bit of that list actually got done. But I did not get near the computer over the weekend, and now I face a dilemma. Diligently type in what happened these last three days, taking up all my computer time, or...

    Heck! You know which one I am going to choose!

    Friday:
    Food: yes!
    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: um...nope
    Pains: 8
    Sleep: Good

    Saturday:
    Food:minimal!
    Water: 10 glasses
    Walking: 40"
    Pains: 13
    Sleep: Good

    Sunday:
    Food: yes, but too many nuts
    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 30"
    Pains: 9, and gassy
    Sleep: Good

    The weight continues to be good. The mood is good. Pains are decreasing, which I am happy about. I finished 5 bags this morning, and as a reward, got to go see a movie, 'The Host'. Enjoyed it. Going for a walk at a local nature preserve with Honey this evening. Middlest is almost done with her AP exams. Littlest is about to start on hers. Eldest called me on Mother's Day and we had a nice talk. Ordered a copy of The Alternate Day Diet, and it just got in, so I'll be picking it up soon.

    I think that's it.

    Off to journals. I wonder how Jenn's graduation went.

    It went very very well and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you for asking. I will be posting pictures that my dad/husband took at some point.

    Alright, getting on this right away. Here was yesterday(I'm sure it helps that it was a nice, short Down Day):

    Up at 5:30

    12:30 beef jerky

    3:30 4oz salmon with homemade mayo

    Water: 11 glasses
    Walking: 110"
    Pains: 9

    Bed at 10:00

    Notice the incredible amount of walking! The nature preserve was wonderful. A rabbit hopped out in front of me and we communed for a minute. Well, it may have been terror in her eyes, but I was communing. Many beautiful wildflowers. Part of the trail had just been redone, so I had to keep my wits about me. Also spent sometime on the concrete path, where no wits were required, for maximum enjoyment of the vistas.

    Honey and I were talking about how difficult many people find the concept of going without food for A WHOLE DAY. Granted, my mind has changed a lot about this over the past year, but was I really that incredulous? I know I would have gotten hungry, especially before I was fat-adapted, but people are talking about getting dizzy if they skip a few hours. Humans are tougher than that! Or should be. Anyhow, it makes me glad I am not telling my general acquaintance what I am doing. I don't need the flack. Although i don't seem to have as many aggressive about someone else's food choices people in my life as are out there in the general population. I am ASTOUNDED at what some people have had said to them.

    My challenges today are baking cookies for a school party that Middlest may end up not going to after all. But I get to balance that with a sashimi lunch. I'd rather have fish over flour.

    Grump

    More pains after two very low days. I am narrowing my culprits, and giving up any of them is not an appealing prospect. But...needs must when the devil drives.

    Up at 5:30

    7:00 chicken thigh with cabbage and mushrooms, coconut oil

    12:00 sashimi!, 3/4C rice, seaweed salad

    6:45 3 coconut chicken tenders, 2T bbq sauce
    thai cucumber salad
    coconut-choclate-almond 'cookie'
    small glass milk
    primal cheesecake 'cup'

    9:00 spoon of peanut butter, 1 slice swiss cheese

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: no
    Pains: 18

    Bed at 10:30- read too late

    Plans for today: salmon and greens, walking, plenty of water, and rest. The A/C man is coming this morning. I will try to do all my chores while he is here so that I can loll about afterwards.

    And now for something completely different.

    This is in response to Jenn's doctor's comment, but I didn't feel I should clutter up her journal with it.

    Condoms, when used correctly, have a 98% success rate. Birth control pills, when used correctly, have a 97-99% success rate. Condoms also protect against disease.

    It really PISSES me off when a DOCTOR makes fun of an effective method of disease and pregnancy prevention!

    How about taking some time to educate people on using it properly?!?

    How about considering the side-effects of a bunch of hormones shooting through your body for years!?!(Which, in this case, is why the patient was there in the first place, not because of a pregnancy!)

    How about cost and ease of use for the population most at risk for unwanted pregnancy where cost and ease of use may make the difference between life and death on several different levels!?!

    Aaarrrghhh!!!

    Rant over.
