Anybody reading this in the early days will probably note that I'm not fully primal. Mathematically, yes, I stick with the guidelines regarding macros with pretty good compliance. But some of the foods don't really qualify, and I sometimes (horror of horrors) get sugar free syrups in coffee drinks, etc. I am aware of these little baddies and of the downright evil nature of diet sodas. I get it. But habits that have existed for a decade are hard to kick, and even harder when you try to kick them all at once.
I do hope, someday, to overcome the damage to my tastebuds that fake sweeteners have caused. And in that beautiful future, I hope to even be able to drink my coffee like an adult and perhaps have an appreciation for non-sugary alcoholic options. In the meantime, though, my great victory was yesterday's whole milk latte-- no sweeteners and no flavors! That's a first for me and I even kinda liked it.
Yesterday went just about as planned. Plus a mojito. But, since I pulled my back getting dressed to go to dinner (much to my own chagrin. Though I am thirty now, this back problem has plagued me for the better part of my twenties), I concluded that some alcohol could be forgiven.
Strong out the gates! Cream Cheese Omelette (which I realize isn't primal, per se, since cream cheese is thoroughly modern. However, I have a hard time kicking the dairy out right away and have a particular fondness for cream cheese). 6c, 22p, 39f (leaves 44c, 80p, and 80f for the rest of the day)
Afternoon snacks of unhealthful jerky (9c, 27p, 3f) allowing 35c, 53p, and 77f)
greek yogurt with strawberries (17c, 12p, 2.5f) allowing 18c, 41p, and 74f)
hard boiled egg (1) (6p, 5f) allowing 18c, 35p, and 69f
Dinner: in n out flying dutchman
~10c, 33p, 39f (leaves 8c, 2p, 30f)
In the end, I am still low on the fats and need to start addressing that soon. I start work on Monday so really should have a system down by then since it will become more challenging as I have less time to dally about coming up with food.
