    Thanks for the Input, Candy and Sabine!

    I agree that being accountable is a good thing, and yes, I will indeed journal my mishaps as well as my successes!

    Tuesday:
    B: 1 boiled egg, ˝ avocado
    S: the cookie I mentioned in the previous post...
    L: meat soup
    S banana, 1 boiled egg
    D: Fish buffet

    Moveing: jog at lunch
    Playing: with my colleagues in the evening!

    I did fantastic at the buffet, eating only primally, fish and veggies. I drank water all night, except for the one diet coke. Which definately isn't primal. But at least doesn't have sugar!

    Wednesday was weird and stressful, I had the same lecture 4 times and was exhausted by the end of the day!
    B: 2 boiled eggs, ˝ avocado, ˝ grapefruit
    S: banana
    D: Curry
    S: 1 boiled egg
    D: 2 dl whole milk, 1 avocado, 2 squares dark chocolate

    Move: yoga class
    Play: none

    Weird dinner, but I wasn't really hungry, so I figured eating was unneccesary.

    I do eat dairy. I have decreased it, and plan on decreasing more, same with fruit. The thing is, though, that I have an eating disordered history, and I want to ease into this. So I am striving for moving in the primal direction rather than being perfect. I am feeling good about it.

    We have a huge conference at work this week, hence the eating out and the lectures, and so far I have passed by all the sweets and stuff 100 times without having any. It's not easy every time, but it feels like I am getting better at resisting the temptation.

    So far today I have had:
    B: ˝ grapefruit, 1 boiled egg, ˝ avocado
    S: banana
    L: Minesrtone without pasta

    I am about to have an orange for a snack, and dinner, I have no idea about yet. It depends on whether I have a playmate for the evening or not. If so, I think we will have thai food (I'll avoid the rice). If not, I'm having an omelet.I LHTd at lunch.

    You're doing great, especially avoiding all temptations!
    I was having a coffee out today and got a piece of dark chocolate with it. First I thought I'd just eat it, but then I realized I wasn't hungry and didn't even really want it. So I left it where it was .

    Hi Hanna! Good luck, I also started my journal 3 weeks ago and I have been on and off but I am also taking in Sabine's advice and will try to log more even if im tired or I did bad.

    I am no expert but I agree with Sabine that it looks like you may need some more protein. Also, in my humble opinion, you may want to try and have a little more diversity with your meals, otherwise you might get bored quickly and ditch the whole thing.

    If you want to check out my journal I always list all the ingredients in what I cooked so you can get some ideas, its fairly new so there isn't a lot but its something and there are tons and tons of recipes here from other members. I read somewhere that eating eggs every day may cause you to develope allergies, don't know if that is true or not but something to keep in mind.

    Good Luck!
    Loving my primal life

    Thursday
    B: ˝ grapefruit, 1 boiled egg, ˝ avocado
    S: banana
    L: Minestrone without pasta
    D: Omelet with cheese, fried in butter ˝ bottle of wine 4 squares of dark chocolate

    Plan of the day:
    B: ˝ avocado
    S: banana and tea
    L: Meat soup
    D: something clever at a restaurant, probably with more wine!

    Still haven't had any bread this week! yay me!

    Candy, that's such a success, not eating something just because it's there!

    Polos, thanks for your input. I think that at the moment, I'll focus on being as primal as I can, without going insane, and start worrying about the exact ratios of macronutrients later. It doesn't really bother me to eat similar things most days. I make huge batches of soup and freeze, so my lunches vary. Dinner is mostly about getting enough energy before I'm off doing something. I'll check out your journal, though.

    I am feeling good. Not even feeling guilty about that wine yesterday. And not feeling guilty is a very good thing!

    That is indeed a very good thing! I think you have the right attitude, where you should first focus on getting "into" it and then you can start focusing on details.

    I was talking to my mum today about the chocolate: we are used to eating things just because they're there. But now that I'm feeling better and better I can listen to my body and stomach and not just put it in my mouth. I ask myself: am I hungry? Do I really want this? Or is it just "habit"? And if I felt like I really wanted the chocolate I would have eaten it (it was dark chocolate after all ). Back when I was on 'standard diet' I wouldn't have questioned it, but just eat it.

    Friday ended up un-primal:

    B: ˝ avocado
    S: banana and tea
    L: Meat soup
    D: bread, chicken, wine, beer and sweets

    I woke up this morning feeling more hung over than I can possibly have been from the wine.

    I mentioned the habit of sleep earlier this week, and I swear I jinxed it! I have slept way too little this week, mostly because I have been playing at night. I guess it's ok to be akrasic at times!

    So far Saturday:
    B: ˝avocado, 2 eggs, ˝ grapefruit, coffee
    L: veggies, butter, coconut oil, cheese

    Play: yup
    Move: slow jog in the sunshine!
