Too much fiber? Could be a bug? Almond butter tends to upset my stomach.

Our freezer drawer is awesome too! it's really deep with a top basket that slides in and out. Sounds like the two are about the same.
Primal since March 5, 2012

Apples have always done funny things to my stomach. I eat them anyway... but yeah.
Stay the course, Tomi, you'll get there eventually. I've hit another "rubber" weight. I keep hitting 144 and then bouncing off it again. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. Sooner or later I will break it. All I can be happy about right now is that the bounces are getting smaller and smaller. I will be more stubborn and more patient and in the end, I will win.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

Tomi, found this recipe today and I immediately thought of you! Paleo Cornbread Muffins (Cornless Cornbread!) - Empowered Sustenance
What is this MACA you're talking about?
Thanks, Candy! I will definitely check that out! MACA is something that was talked about in one of Marks posts last week. Its from a root plant grown in Africa (I think). Its supposed to be great for helping with the symptoms of menopause (like hot flashes and night sweats and LOW libido). I'm hoping it will help in all 3 but mostly the latter. For me - when the periods ended so did my desire in the bedroom! I'm flat line on hormones - and flat line on wanting or needing anything sexual. In all honesty - things are better than they were a year ago - but not like I'm used to. Hubby had a tough time adjusting to the change - I'm hoping to change it back!
Candy ---- THANK YOU for showing me a new website for great recipes! I'm going to try that No-corn cornbread and some other stuff I saw on there too. I have a spighetti squash just ready to be turned into "hashed browns"
So......... my son just texted me. The home inspection didn't go so good - the roof is shot and there is dry rot in the siding. He's gonna walk on this one. So bummed!! I was hoping it would work out for him - it seemed so ideal with the guest house for renting and such - but, it just isn't meant to be I guess. I will have to hold back my screams of "empty nesting" for a bit longer! UGH!
I stepped on the scale - holding steady. Still at 185. Going to focus more on eating only when hungry - and eating just a bit less. Also - cutting out ALL sugar! those dang m&m's are still hanging out in the cupboard. But I'm not feeling so much bloat so I'm doing something right I guess. And I'm not gaining even though I haven't been tracking anything for 6 days.
Its nearly 11:30 am and I haven't had any food yet. I'm sipping ginger-peach tea, sweetened with stevia. I don't have an appetite so I think I'll skip all food until I get home from work. then maybe a couple eggs or some ham.
Dinner tonight is seared tuna medalions and acorn squash or sweet potato.
I haven't walked in 3 days due to bad weather. There was a break in the rain about an hour ago - I should have taken advantage of that. Too late now. Maybe after work? I have to stop and get a few things for Friday's dinner. I'm sure I won't have to work long so I will have time. Yesterday I was out in the pouring rain trying to cut a path for the water to drain our of our driveway - it was flooding! And I had to recover the patio furniture cuz hubby didn't do a very good job and there were deep pools of water forming on the tarps. So I got drenched! I guess I could just walk in the rain. I used to love to do that when I was kid.
Right now - shower time. Have a good day all!
got home from work and shopping and promptly set out for a nice mile and a half walk. It was dark - and raining! My water resistant jacket eventually began to rain on the inside! I got home a little wet. Coat and jeans went into the dryer right away. I got into my jammies and settled in for the evening.
Food today was really good. A small bit of ham at lunch - a little almond butter snack before starting dinner. Dinner turned out really yummy, but to much cajun spice on the tuna sent my tummy into spasms. I cut the tuna loin into 1 1/2 inch medalions, rolled them in cajun spice and quickly seared them in olive oil. they came out perfect. We dipped them in a little wasabi horseradish stuff - yummy. I had a beautiful sweet potato with butter and 3 medalions. Just perfect.......... until hubby brought out the last of the peanut m&m's ......... yes I ate some. I think they are gone now so there is no more crap the house to tempt me.
Tomorrow I will take my mom shopping - an hour of driving and shopping and bill paying for her. Then to work for a bit, theres an office lunch - then another stop at the store for more potatoes, celery and carrots - then home to start getting ready for the family gathering on Friday. I've taken stew meat out - will try to throw together a stew and keep it primal. I can thicken it with almond flour. Add potatos and carrots, celery and maybe califlower - onions and tomato. Hope I can pull it off, I've never really made a good stew. Thursday we are bringing MIL over to have a simple, abbreviated Thanksgiving meal. I'm sure she will get tired and want to go home pretty early in the day. Normally she's ready to go around 3 pm. She's 89 years old so bedtime comes around 7:30 these days. And her eyesight is so poor she can't really see the TV anymore. My mom - pretty much the same. She's pretty reclusive and doesn't care about celebrating holidays with family - one of us always invites her - but she always say no thanks.
I'm not as ON TRACK as I would like to be. I need to be a 100%er to feel I'm doing it "right". Its hard to be a 100%er a 100% of the time. I can do it sometimes - but not alltimes. for the past couple of weeks I've been about a 60%er. Some rum, some candy. Sheesh -- why is it so darn hard?
I'm still yearning to see that 179 on the scale - and see it consistantly - not for just a fleeting day or two and then up into the 180's again. UGH. I need to find my drive again. I need to get centered and focused. I've been really liking the last few days of no calorie counting - its like being on vacation! I still track my miles walked and my daily goals of walking, no sugar, no grains, no alcohol, and bedtime by 11 pm. I haven't been doing so great at that over the past week - but I'm still being accountable for the choices I'm making.
Tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow I will make good choices!
