    Hello gentle grokkers,

    today I am easing back on the wagon. Christmas parties and stress from papers and finals are winding down and I'm starting to feel more human again. First up, delete wheat from my body. That's the goal for today.

    Brekkie: Coffee w/cream and a touch of maple syrup. Fried rice egg.

    Lunch: Mexican 5-layer dip eaten with a spoon. Lots of beans, but, you know, beans don't seem to bother me like they do other people. Anyways, beans are an occasional indulgence.

    I broke out my bread machine to make loaves of bread for friends for Christmas. lol. I love making bread but can't eat it and my apartment smells awesome. This is ideal. All the smells of bread and none of the tummy aches!

    Dinner: Spaghetti squash topped with pork spaghetti sauce and parm. A wee nip of rumchata on ice.

    10:00 snack: mini dill pickles

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    I did well yesterday and am starting to feel less bloated. Hoping to continue the good fight today as I have another party (I know, I'm just a social butterfly) this evening - but it's a dance party so at least I'll be getting some "play" in!

    Brekkie: coffee w/cream. No sugar (yay!)

    Brunch: 2 eggs with spaghetti squash.

    Dinner: 2 legs and a thigh of roast chicken. Perrier.

    Dance party! Danced for 4 hours straight. Drank 2 tequila shots, something with cranberry juice, 3 more cups of just straight juice (no alcohol). My abs hurt. Tomorrow my whole body will hurt. Wow was it fun to dance for 4 straight hours though! I was super sweaty!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    well I'm not as sore all over as I thought I would be but I'm still pretty achy!

    Brekkie: coffee w/cream. At some point I'm going to have spaghetti squash spaghetti. I dunno if it will be for brunch or lunch though.

    I have another party tonight :P A more subdued one that should be over at a decent time!

    Lunch: Spaghetti squash spaghetti.

    Dinner: Roast chicken thigh and 2 wings.

    Party damage: a sliver of chocolate cheesecake, 1 mini brownie, 2 crab rangoons, 4 white chocolate pretzles, 6 chips with homeade salsa, sausage, pepperonni, cheddar, 2 glasses sparkling grape juice, a nip of St. Brendans.

    Not great but could have been much worse.

    My socializing is definitely ruining my diet. But the socializing also helps lower my stress so I think it pretty much evens out.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    well socializing definitely ruined my diet yesterday. It wouldn't have been so bad but eating early lunch at a friends house then led to a burger and shake for lupper. Ugh. I felt I was walking through soup I had so many gluteny carbs.

    Today I'm jumping back on the wagon. My brekkie was fairly high sugar though: rice cake w/cream cheese and jam.
    150 cal
    28 carb
    yeah. I'm doing that now.

    Bottle of Perrier.

    Walk 3 miles with a friend! Wait. It's raining. Never mind.
    Successfully warded off an urge to make bread for myself.

    Early lunch: Spaghetti squash spaghetti, tea w/cream.
    cream – 205 cal, 1 carb
    spaghetti squash – 42 cal 10 carb
    tomato sauce – 5 carb 25 cal
    ground pork – 232 cal 0 carb

    Took a 3 hour!!!! nap.

    Early dinner: rice crackers, cheddar, norwegian cheese, summer sausage, pepperoni.

    Snack: 4 baby dills

    Verdict: 1292 calories, 80 carbs for the day (approx) I ate more rice products than I normally do on a "good" day but as far as amount of food goes this is about average. If I can just stick to these numbers I should lose!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    Kitty woke me up too early this morning!

    Brekkie: Coffee/Cream/Honey -
    cals 237
    carb 9

    Was starting to crave sugar so I splurged a little and made myself an AWESOME brunch.

    Sweet and purple potato:
    potato! (1024x768).jpg
    sliced up with my mandolin. I didn't slice a finger off this time. Yay.

    Fried up with 2 eggs!
    egg and potato hash (1024x768).jpg
    Does that not just look scrumptious!

    The problem is, I have no idea how to account for this in carb/cal counts.

    2 eggs: about 1 carb and about 180 cal
    1 small purple potato: about 70 cal and 15 carb
    1 small sweet potato: about 54 cal 12 carb
    Tablespoon of bacon/coconut oil: 38 cals + 116 cals
    Who knows if this is even close but that's what I'm going with!

    Unfortunately all that carb probably means I'm going to crash and nap soon!

    Didn't nap. Forced myself to go walk around in the cold on campus instead.

    I loooove salmon!
    1 filet of salmon with jerk seasoning and tartar sauce.
    approx. 374 cal and 2 carb

    So totals time!
    1069 cal
    39 carb

    Hmmm. That's not much. Oh I forgot - a nice office-mate gave me some christmas chocolates of which I ate 3 and donated the rest to the break room. 165 cal 20 carb. Errr, and a wee nip of rumchata on ice. 140 cal and 16 carbs. Oops.

    So 75 carb and 1374 cal and most likely that's overestimated. Well that's about where I expect to be and feel satiated!

    It's been a gooood day.

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    the last 2 days I was right where I thought I'd be as far as cals and carbs so I don't feel the need to continue counting.

    Brekkie: chai w/cream
    Lunch: taco salad!
    taco salad (1024x768).jpg
    leftover white chicken, poblano chili sauce, spinach, tomato, cheddar, avocado, sour cream, salsa a friend made. Hot! But good.

    Dinner: Sat down with some sweet potato chips - big mistake! Used the rest of my salsa and avocado but also the bag of chips :P

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    it's packing day. I wonder if I can find all my Christmas presents?

    Brekkie: chai w/teaspoon raw honey and cream.
    Lunch: last of the spaghetti squash with tomato sauce and half a tomato and parm. Quite a lot of it because I'm trying to clean out my fridge before I leave!

    Took a nap.
    Went to see the Hobbit with a friend.

    Went to a bar for celebrating a friend's birthday - 1 wheat beer and 1/4 a rum and coke (finished a friend's).
    Dinner: rest of the leftover chicken, sour cream, poblano sauce with the rest of the sweet potato chips (about 8 chips).

    Ready to drive home tomorrow!

    Hello gentle grokkers,

    I'm home with my fantastically primal cooking mother and eating like a princess! Some of the meals I've had in the last 2 days:

    Banana berry smoothie w/MDA protein powder, guac w/plantain chips and bacon, homemade kombucha, raw milk, Perrier, meatloaf, butternut squash oven roasted, last of the fall chard and bok choi steamed w/coconut aminos, cured pork chops.

    Yay Christmas!

    That would be the beginnings of an Apple Crisp there. Apples, cranberries, honey, cinnamon spice mix, butter. We added nut crumble to the top. Turned out delicious!
