    Sleeping is actually going better these days. My biggest most pressing issue is my torrid love affair with chocolate covered almonds. I declare that I will NOT buy any today!!! Must break the habit.

    Eek. It's that time of day. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds. I will not buy chocolate-covered almonds.

    I did not buy chocolate covered almonds!! But I did eat a junky lunch.

    Day 18 -

    On the bus:
    Double espresso with coconut oil

    Mid-morning:
    Black coffee

    Lunch:
    Fish n' chips! My boss had this yesterday and today I was craving it so I allowed myself this treat. It was pretty good, but I didn't feel super-awesome afterward.

    Mid-afternoon:
    Herbal tea
    Water

    Dinner:
    Handful salted nuts
    Last of the primal chicken masala leftovers

    Now:
    Going to make a coconut milk steamer and go to bed. I'm craving rich, warm beverages because it's been so cold!!

    good accomplishment to ditch the choc almonds!

    ill do the same with all cheats! vowing to start on a ketogenic diet starting NOW!!

    i had a "damn" moment today: took some measurements and theyve gone up. this is not good. too many cheats, too many calories, too much sugar still lurking around in my diet. this must stop immediately!

    my gut is feeling fine, since no wheat is present, but i have let myself go wild on the primal friendly treats and have gone a little out of control, a lot actually.

    going into: "no dairy, no fruit, no choc" mode!

    Awesome job!

    Here's my Day 19:

    On the bus:
    Double espresso with coconut oil

    Lunch:
    Big-ass salad with chicken
    Herbal tea

    Mid-afternoon:
    Herbal tea

    Dinner:
    Bison burger with bacon on a bed of Romaine lettuce with avocado
    Roasted asparagus

    Later evening:
    I'm going to be up to all hours doing last-minute school stuff for tomorrow. I'm going to bribe myself with a coconut milk steamer. Easy on the maple syrup, adding in an egg yolk for extra nutrition.

    Days 20, 21, and 22 are a blur from being at school. Overall, I ate pretty well and weighed myself this morning to find that I'm 2 lbs down. I'll try to remember to take a body fat measurement on the weekend to see if I'm just dehydrated or actually making progress.

    Day 23 -

    On the bus:
    Coffee with coconut oil

    Mid-morning:
    Water
    Black coffee

    Lunch:
    Big Ass Salad with nuts and seeds and dried raisins and goji berries.
    Water

    Mid-afternoon:
    Candy cane. Oh come on, it's almost Christmas

    Dinner:
    Primal chicken tikka masala over cauliflower rice

    BED TIME! I have to recover from my school weekend. I have a massage scheduled for Wednesday morning and I am soooo looking forward to chilling out.

    Hey! It seems that you broke the almond chocolate rut?

    Also, kudos on the non-snacking study sessions!

    Ha, the rut was broken until today... Exceedingly stressful meeting at work. However, I bought a dark chocolate bar with almonds and shared it with my co-workers so not quite as bad an impact.

    I hear ya!
    Ive kinda figured out what makes me snack sweet junk at work: either anxiety (before or after stressful meetings) or boredom (during boring meetings!! ).

    Im gonna focus on the next few days (b4 xmas anyway) not to eat anything during meetings, maybe keep filling my coffee mug several times is a good idea.

    How do you plan to tackle xmas dinners?
