Hiya Glad that you got through your carb cravings and that your pain is better. Hope that the car repairs aren't TOO painful!
I am lucky (if you can call it that) that by the time I decided to do this, my carb binges had me feeling so badly that I don't really crave them much now. Well, I did a bit today while in CostCo and Target because I could smell all of the carbalicious poison that they had cooking (or probably just warming) at the snack bars. I was hungry too. But happily, I had stuff at home to whip up quickly (half leftover and half quick saute) so my tummy is happy and I'm enjoying a nice, tall glass of red wine Hope that your carb cravings go AWAY soon!
Thanks Amanda! But the car repairs will be $1000-$1500. That will be a big chunk of money for my family. That could buy a cow, butchered and all!

I watched these videos. They are great. I don't know who the speaker is, but he is pretty good.
I hope these links work. I'm copying and pasting on my iPad.
Ok, the first link shows just the name YouTube when I view my post. It is actually for Part 1.

So today was a long day. I jumped on the scale in the morning because I felt thinner. Same weight. Same measurements, too. But I woke up in ketosis. I had a shot of vodka last night, in some sparkling water. Not sure if that impacted my brain or my body. Ha.
I ate high fat, low carb today. Until the pig wings. This is pork tenderloin cooked same as chicken wings. So I think they are breaded, then fried. I did look up buffalo wing sauce and it could be low carb. Depends on the recipe and if they add sugar or not. This makes me wonder if bar wings are breaded before they are fried. Thursday is wing night at the local bar. 2 pints and all you can eat wings for $14.99. I could get water or diet soda and wings... If they are not breaded.
I told a friend at work about MDA. I talk about it with other women whom I know will understand my obsession. I am trying to get my sister to start eating Primal so I can get good recipes from her. She is clever.
Nothing else memorable, except I did have a great lunch. I grated 3 zucchini and 2 yellow summer squash and sautéed them in butter. In a separate pan, I cooked 6 sausage and a half pound shrimp. I combined it all at the end and separated into 4 meals. One was lunch. It was very good.
I am tired or I would post more. I don't even have the energy to catch up on others posts or journals. Sorry all, just wiped.
LOL. Because of that comment, I was listing in my head all the ways that Ke$ha is primal the last time I played her music while walking - she doesn't wash her hair, she pees wherever the urge strikes, et cetera. (Ugh.)

I discovered that with LMFAO Sexy and I Know It. That was NOT what I was imagining when they sang "jiggle, jiggle, jiggle"- I was so pleasantly oblivious.

I def recommend avoiding diet soda. You may already know that, but if not, it is touted as being worse for your health than regular soda. I don't know if this would be an acceptable compromise for you, but I do love some sparkling water with fresh lemon squeezed in it.
Hey Amanda, I have some exciting news! I checked Wikipedia and buffalo wings are generally NOT breaded! Probably worth checking when we do order them tho. We can claim a gluten allergy or something so they will tell us the truth. As for diet soda, yeah it can be bad but I think, for myself, once in a while is ok. Better than beer. I wish I liked the seltzer water, but maybe it will grow on me.
