Good Monday Morning! Wow - lots of stuff to read through and "glean"! Thanks ladies. I'll take a look at the poo links. I'm not sure about the tracking - I've done that in the past and come up with no pattern or connections to any type of particular food. Many years ago I was down to eating oatmeal - thats the only thing I could eat that didn't make me sick. Still thinking it could be parasites.
Judg - I will do some experimenting with your suggestions for dressing and dips. Guac sounds good!
The weekend was busy for sure. Hubby ended up working till 2 on Saturday, then we made a Costco run and crashed for the rest of the day. He was a tired man after getting up so early - he was at work at 6 am! Sunday was planned to get the boat ready to put in the water - we started early (didn't go to church), but our plans all got derailed when hubby discovered he needed to replace the ignition coil - but the parts store didn't have the right one. Then, a customer called saying his boat was not running right, so we needed to go up to the lake and take a look at that. We ended up towing my brother in laws boat up and putting it in the water instead of our own! Then after about 3 other unplanned excursions we finally got home at 9 pm. So --- my diet wasn't exactly the greatest. I had to make some difficult food choices. When you're towing a 25 foot boat behind a king cab truck you don't have a lot of options for stopping to eat - they don't make parking lots to accomidate big rigs! We ended up stopping in a large gas station lot that was next to the Hawaian Grill and lunch was a teriyaki chicken with rice on the go. I thought I was making a pretty good choice considering my options. But, with the day going sideways as it did - the choices for dinner were even worse. The only places to eat up near the lake are fast food places, and by the time we got done at the lake it was late and they were closing. So we needed to chose quick to fix and easy to eat in the car meals. Hubby and brother in law got burgers and fries - I ended up with chicken strips and fries! UGH! Thats got to the be worst food day of my 6 months of being primal. But - it was only ONE day - and I'm not going to die because I ate poorly. I certainly don't want to think about the calories though. Ok - there, now I brush it off and move on.
Today is doctor appt day. I hate going to the doctor when I'm not "sick". I just feel like something is out of whack. No weight loss despite months of counting calories and keeping logs. I need to see if its something out of balance. Doc says I have to lose weight to lower the CRP but the weight isn't coming off. Yes, I have little cheats now and then - but overall I'm eating healthy and my calorie counts are well under my daily needs to maintain. So - better go shower. I have to go in fasting cuz she will probably want to draw blood.
Not in a very chipper mood today....... would like to just stay in my jammies and curl up on the couch with a good book. Have a good day everyone! I'll probably write a bit more after I see the doc..........
