    We may have been separated at birth!

    Christmas dinner - no problem. We eat French Canadian meat pie. I've never really liked the crust so I'll likely pick at it and give the rest away to someone else at the table. I'll allow myself to indulge - Christmas only happens once per year! So I'll have some potatoes, I'll skip the bread, I'll have the salad and the wine. And I'm sure I'll have some dessert, whatever it is my mom bakes this year (we're going to her place).

    Day 24 -

    On the bus:
    Coffee with coconut oil

    Mid-morning:
    Black coffee

    Lunch:
    Big-ass salad with almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried goji berries and dried blueberries.

    Mid-afternoon:
    Damn dark chocolate bar with almonds (but I shared it)

    Dinner:
    Leftover chicken tikka masala over cauliflower rice

    Oh hai!

    Holidays are over and I survived Time to start journaling again.

    Today, I will laze around on the couch with my dog, trying to absorb microscopic amounts of Vitamin D through the window. Tomorrow, the journalling returns!

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    Friday, January 11th.

    I'm super-excited that I'm staying under 50 grams of carbs. Seriously! This is new to me but I feel fabulous and I am losing weight. Maybe it's water weight again but I don't care because I'm feeling so awesome.

    On the bus:
    Coffee with coconut oil

    Mid-morning:
    Water
    Black coffee

    Lunch:
    Big ass salad from a restaurant (walnuts, avocado, green lettuce, spinach, hard boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, you name it!)
    Water

    Mid afternoon:
    A couple handfulls of salted mixed nuts. Probably should have had only one
    Water

    Dinner:
    Leftover chicken with coconut cream and mushrooms
    Mashed cauliflower
    Water

    I started on a new ionic magnesium supplement tonight that I picked up at our local wellness expo, and also a new vitamin C-lysine-proline-other-good-stuffs supplement. Feels great!

    PaleoTrack info:

    Calories: 1244
    Carbs: 43g (13%)
    Protein: 55g (17%)
    Fat: 102g (70%)
