    Mom made dinner tonight, as it is Sunday evening DiTommaso dinner. She made some chili at first, but she was convinced that her homemade ancho pepper powder was too hot. Then she made some moussaka, which I LOVE! Except hers was more of a white sauce and she thickened the sauce with cornstarch. It was pretty good, but I told her mine is usually made with a tomato paste base. Oh well, she wanted to make hers that way too but was afraid to after what happened with her chili. Hmm? I had two meals today and that was almost it food wise, except for some almond crackers with goat milk butter about an hour ago.

    Man, I must have been more tired than I realized today because I took like a two hour nap! Poor Gabi, we still haven't gone to look for a dress for her and we were supposed to today. No time because we had to be at Mom's church for Evensong with Celtic music (which I absolutely LOVE, but I feel I got a little shortchanged there).

    We did have some fun this evening after all the fuss of the day. We busted out the hula hoops and even played volleyball for a bit. Man, I can't believe we haven't been doing this that much lately. I've been slacking big time in this department!

    B: None, fasted
    L: Not too sure how many, but I'll venture about 30 tortilla chips with seasoning added. Fried avocados (yes, I ate some of the breaded outside) Mexican rice, and some queso deal with what I think might have been mashed potatoes? Not sure. All I know was, I was TIRED after eating. Not a good sign
    D: Mom's moussaka, salad, and her homemade dressing.
    S: About 4 almond crackers made into goat milk butter sandwiches.

    Workout: 10 minute trainer Cardio and Lower Body. Hula hooping for about 10 mins and playing around with the volleyball.

    I managed to keep the sugar cravings at bay today. Almost bought some spinach today, but I think I'll got a week without and see if it helps.

    Some pictures from yesterday. I'll try to see if I can find a not so shaky video to post, but I'll probably do that tomorrow.

    I semi caught the conversation with you and lex but I'm confused as to why leafy greens are now bad...

    (Sidebar)I'm curious as to what your mousaka recipe looks like. I'd love to take a stab at making some!!

    Mmm, moussaka. I have a very Primal-friendly recipe somewhere, although it's definitely not authentically Greek. Can hardly wait till eggplant is in season.

    I love eggplant, but I grew up eating fried eggplant. That meant breaded in my house. I used to sneak up behind mom and take off with a few after she'd finished frying them.

    Ecks, I think I might have gone too low carb and my body was getting a tad angry with me. I'll bring the spinach back, but I did notice that not having in the mornings has helped. Today though, I ate more fat to try to help out.

    Just got back from a nice little walk (I'm sure Gabi completely disagrees with the little part) down the road. I just finished mapping it and it was 2.83. I love mapmyrun.com I don't map anything until I'm done with it because I don't want to know how far I'm going. If I think about it, I don't want to do it.

    I decided to see if eating more fat would calm the sugar cravings and it actually worked today. So, now I know where to go with that.

    Today was sort of a little stressful at work, but I think the stress turned out to be a good thing. The jury is still out on that, but we'll see what happens tomorrow.

    I managed to get up on time this morning, but still kind of wasted some time. I did manage to get in two workouts this morning, which I think kept my energy going this morning. Now, now I'm tired.

    B: 2 pcs bacon
    S: 4 almond crackers with goat milk butter, some pistachios, and mixed berries
    L: Leftover grilled steak (ate as much fat off it as I could), salad with homemade dressing, and 1 small avocado
    S: 2 more almond crackers with g.m.b. and some more pistachios, and a handful of chopped walnuts
    D: Lemony chicken piccata with steamed squash.
    Drinks: water
    Workout: 10 minute trainer total body and cardio

    I think I may have overloaded on certain snacks today, but I did manage to keep the sugar at bay. I might just know the other reason why I had the carb and sugar attack last week. I'm beginning to actually believe I might need carbs a little more during certain times of the month. I did sign up for the paleo tracker thing. I'll try it in the morning if I can. For now, I need to get some sleep. I'll post some pics from our walk. Saw some honeysuckle bushes today!
