    So far, so good, I think, unless there were things hidden in my lunch that I didn't know about - which is not going to ruin my efforts since today is day 1. I almost wonder if they used cooking spray on the chicken I had b/c my sciatic is talking to me just a tiny bit. It's whispering, really. But, I had straight up butter... 1 tbsp b/c they didn't have ghee. Again, day 1. Not going to sweat it.

    Still haven't looked through the cookbook to determine dinner yet. Really need to get on that b/c it's 3 pm and likely I'm going to have to stop at the store to pick up whatever it is we need to make the dinner.

    Fridge has been delivered and is plugged in and chilling so I can load it up tonight. I'm so excited and cannot wait!

    Looked through the book... nothing too special. Your typical recipes with kiddy names (like roast beast instead of roast beef). I'm not saying I'm disappointed b/c I'm betting the recipes are delicious, but my son doesn't eat whole meat. It must be a texture thing for him b/c he loves any kind of ground meat! Maybe I'll try the chicken nugget recipe with ground chicken instead of the chicken breasts.

    I still haven't written my papers for my online class. I really need to work on that. And this whole procrastination thing.

    Ah kids! They arrange to make it difficult for us. And I really mean that. Now that mine are adults, they have confessed that they deliberately arranged to like different things and refuse to eat different things... Sheesh!

    Mine are 5 and 2 so I don't know if they're at the point of planned manipulation yet. lol

    Tonight, I will try the chicken nuggets in the book. If they like them, I will make more. I will also grill up some burgers b/c I know they like burgers.

    They get fed and always will get fed. I just wish they'd eat what I make for a meal instead of making a meal for me and DH and one for the kids.

    I was a nasty Mommy. I did not make separate meals. They were allowed to have small amounts only if they didn't like it, but then they had to wait till next mealtime to eat. On the other hand, I tried to never make one kid suffer two meals in a row. If he hated what we had one day, next day I made something he liked. And which somebody else hated, of course.

    No, they're probably not into planned manipulation yet. Enjoy the respite while it lasts... LOL!

    I try to avoid conflict and that's how I do it... my 2 year old also still has her pacifier... no matter how embarrassed I am that my 2 year old still uses a paci, I cannot bring myself to fight that fight.

    I snipped the end off... Please note, I'm not telling you that's what you should do. Each case has to be judged on its own merits.

    My son (now 26) had a "thing" with whole beef also. He loves ground beef and chicken but hate the chewing necessary with whole beef. I think its the way his molars are shaped - cuz he has to chew a very long time to be able to swallow. He doesn't like to eat reg. pork for the same reason. Shredded pork is okay though.

    sounds like you're getting off to a good start ! We're all behind you!

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.

    haha When I saw you were the last poster, I expected you to be a spammer... lol I've tried making things with coconut flour. No one seems to like the texture. I only use it now when making cream cheese pancakes.

    Day 1 was a success until bed when I started coughing so hard I hurt my throat which just made me cough harder. So, I took two spoonfuls of honey to soothe my throat.

    Yesterday:

    Breakfast:
    4 sausage links
    3/4 - 1 cup sauerkraut
    Copious vitamins

    Lunch:
    Baked chicken breast and thigh with skin
    Steamed carrots
    Steamed green beans
    Mix of strawberries, grapes, watermelon and pineapple

    Dinner:
    6 Eat Like a Dinosaur Chicken Nuggets
    Grapes

    Movement: walking from one fridge to the other moving food items from old fridge to new. Making dinner and cleaning up kitchen.

    And I know we're not supposed to weigh until day 30, but I'm a daily weigher. I have lost 1 lb and some change since yesterday. Won't be disappointed if THAT keeps up! lol


    DS did NOT like the Eat Like a Dinosaur chicken nuggets. He's such a pain in the ass sometimes. I personally thought they were really good, but next time I will omit the salt from the recipe as I could taste it.

    I am finding it easier to avoid refined sugar but SOOOO hard to avoid dairy. Cheese, cream cheese and sour cream became staples in my diet... Now I almost feel limited. Just means I need to look for more Paleo recipes to make.
