I've been offline for the past few days, but I haven't quit eating as primally as possible.
I drove from eastern VA to Memphis, TN yesterday. L-O-N-G DAY. I did bring a lot of my food with me though, so I think I fared pretty well on the trip.
Breakfast - scrambled eggs and coffee with half and half.
Lunch 1: some hard-boiled eggs, walnuts, olives, and fresh mozzarella cheese balls at a random rest area in Western Virginia.
Lunch 2: same as Lunch 1, except add in some celery and a few swipes of almond butter - this time at a random rest area near Nashville, TN.
Dinner: lettuce, endive, olives, walnuts, cucumber, and a bun-less bacon thick burger from Hardee's.
After dinner (while waiting for my mom's flight to land at Nashville): black coffee with 1 square of 70% dark chocolate and one square of 77% dark chocolate.
Today, I am at my cousin's house in Memphis, so I have a lot less control over what I will be eating, but I had leftover food packed from yesterday's trip, so I had some of it for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is actually planned to be something close to primal if I don't have the potatoes, so I think today will be a good day.
Today so far:
Breakfast: leftover salad of lettuce, endive, hard boiled eggs, walnuts, olives, mozzarella cheese, and some ranch dressing.
Mid-morning snack: some celery with almond butter
Lunch: 2 hard boiled eggs, some walnuts, a few olives, some mozzarella balls, and 2 squares of chocolate.
As I was eating my lunch, my Aunt walked by and really harped on me about eating not only TWO but FOUR eggs during a single day. She said, "you are definitely going to find that eating 4 eggs a day is WAY TOO MUCH. That is just WAY TOO MUCH cholesterol and fat to eat." I told her "no it's not" and she said "YES IT IS!!!!"
I did get a little bit of exercise and sun today though. I don't play golf, but we went to hit some balls at the range, so I got exercise walking a bit (we also went to a local lake and played on the swings, etc. for a little while) and I got some sun (I did get a little bit red though).
I tried to get my mom to go primal with me this week so we could both keep each other on track and be able to support each other when challenged by the rest of the family, but she is having none of it. She went to Sonic this morning with my cousin and got God knows what to eat. She also had potato chips this morning. I would normally be tempted by the chips and Cheetos, but I wasn't this time. I just looked at them and decided to not even go there. I know where that leads me. If I have one, I will have the whole rest of the bag. AND. I. WANT. TO. SUCCEED. TOO. DAMN. MUCH.
