OK slept in again! Well, I am on a stay-cation this week, so no worries right?
Breakfast: cheese omlet
Lunch: chicken piccata and broccolini roasted with garlic chips and tossed with lemon juice and parmesan cheese (DIVINE!!!)
Will eat something later as well.
OK so I had a severe belly cramping session at 3:30pm. I was wondering if it is possible that it is from the wheat and rice that I ate last night at 7? Would it take that long for me to feel the effects? AND would I react to wheat that badly after doing paleo for less than two weeks? Hmmmm...just curious.
Observation: I am feeling a bit more energetic, but have been resistant to getting out and walking. It is freezing outside and I am content to be in my warm fuzzy PJ's (except for dinner out last night) inside where it is warm. Gotta push myself in this area! Good to note that my familiar left knee pain seems to be absent since paleo I have some soreness in my right foot from an extra bone that I have in there---hopefully that will feel better too soon!!
Dinner: leftover marinated pork and steamed yuka with garlic mojo sauce---MINUS the rice and beans!
I have anxiety issues too! In fact felt panicky today from life pressure in general. I take Xanax as needed, not today yet but I think I should. I also feel the same way about weight, that it shows the world I am an undisciplined slob. I like your focus on being healthy and feeling good.

Snack: scrounged up carrots and make carrot soup--YUM; very filling as is starchy and lots of fiber; COMFORT food in the cold winter weather!
I've been forgetting to mention herbal tea with about 1 tbsp. raw honey for the last two days. Just want to be inclusive so that I can look back over my journel and have accuracy.
Day 11 Dinner: was at the bar watching football, and alas I strayed! I started off great with buffalo hot wings sans the ranch; but then dipped into one friends loaded nachos and another friends french fries; small amount of each; plus had 4 glasses of pinot noir; woke up with some...ahem gas...but otherwise, OK.
No breakfast. Not hungry.
Lunch: at cafe, roasted balsamic chicken, grilled garlic eggplant and yellow bell pepper (surprisingly good to not be home-made) and garlic mashed potatoes. Then a strawberry creme green tea. Found out upon tasting that it definitely had sugar in it--tasted like dessert in a cup. Was delicious but def. not paleo. I drank about 12 oz. of it. Work in progress
Dinner: leftover piece of chicken piccata and summer squash sauteed in butter, shallot and garlic. MMMMMMMM!!! With a tall glass of red wine.
I'll tell ya, now that I'm back to cooking for myself (haven't in awhile for lack of energy) I feel like I'm eating gormet! It just takes careful planning and shopping. But I really do love eating this way (most of the time). Cravings GONE!
Walked a lot today because I was out and about the city running errands
Got hungry and had a snack of:
organic pear, small handful of mixed raw nuts and a few pieces of smoked gouda
Thinking that I should eliminate dairy because I suffered my first ever chronic sinus infection this winter; and it is TRYING to come back AGAIN! I seem to be allergic to something at work, and it keeps flaring up my sinuses But alas, I really am not ready to give up dairy. Need to get down the basics of this primal stuff first!
Last night after dinner, I ended up finishing up with two more tall glasses of red wine--Yikes! That's 3/4 of the bottle gone in one night. Well, thank goodness I don't drink red wine every night! Don't want to become friends with Bill
Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled in butter and mixed with parm reg. Green smoothie (pineapple, blueberries, fresh lemon juice and spinach). FINALLY annointed my new Vitamix that I got for Christmas!! Love it!
Snack: herbal tea with one tbsp. raw honey
Lunch: roasted salmon (in EVOO, lemon juice, fresh ginger, capers, salt and pepper) and carrot ginger soup. Kombucha.
I'm not hungry yet, but look forward to dinner later when I get hungry cause I'm roasting a pork shoulder (over 6-7 hours) and it smells HEAVENLY!!!
Dinner: THe pork shoulder turned out delicious I had two pieces and some sauteed summer squash (in butter, shallot and garlic). Then two artisan chocolate bon bons---I am lucky enough to have a neighbor who was voted one of the top 10 pastry chefs in the U. S. He is a choclatier specifically Two mouth watering morsels of non-paleo (it wasn't dark chocolate). Drinking red wine now. Must not replace when this bottle is complete lest I become freinds with Bill
