Careless in Los Angeles
I love fuck-its. This weekend may not have been great for my stomach (it was not happy!) but it was great for Bathead. Friday-Sunday I spent bouncing around from friend to friend until my mom finally tracked me down and made me go home. I guess it was time to change out the dress I had been wearing for the past 36 hours...
I was so busy and having so much fun that I never even looked at my phone (save to call a friend) let alone took it out to jot down what I was eating, how I felt, etc. I barely thought of anything health or food relatedÖ IRC, the only things I consumed on Saturday before dinner were 3 cups of coffee, a scoop of (disgusting) potato salad, and a crap ton of m&ms and mini Reese's cups. After my "lunch" of said fare I sincerely wanted to vomit but I got over it. My stomach was very angry at me (lots of gurgling, gas, etc.) but I ignored it. Actually, the belly massages helped tremendously (thank you, Ci!) but I did them so often that I actually ended up bruising my skin! Oops. Internal bleeds? I hope not. I felt fine that day energy-wise but the next day and for the remainder of my visit I felt horrible and exhausted. However, it was my first time in LA in the past couple of years that I wasn't completely constipated so I took that as a vast improvement.
Also, everyone commented that I looked very healthyÖ Scale at Mom's still reads 117 lb. Must have all gone to my boobies.
Today, Wednesday, July 17
Back to reality, I'm ready to re-resume a Zach inspired WOE: ice cream, fruit, eggs, cheese, gelatin, etc. but with more meat and fish. I had 1/2 a cup of coffee Haagen Dazs ice cream with mango for dinner tonight and I'm no worse for wear; a bit less bloated than I'd be after a starch heavy meal and no gas, rumbling, or pain.
- My energy was great today after a bacon+eggs breakfast and a tuna+feta lunch (with some chocolate) so I don't think I have a problem with meat alone; I think more issues arise when I try to eat meat and fruit together, for example. My stomach just might not be strong enough for that yet and it wears me out trying to deal with it?
- Digestion was amazing: all-star BMs. Really, spectacular. Bloat is still present, though.
- Face looks puffy again - coming off a weekend of starch. Is that even a possibility or am I completely making this up? Ohh, but my plantains sauteed in butter and honey tasted soooo good with my pisco sour..
And holy low-carb primal Batman! 1700 kcal and only 90g of carbs. I gon' lose weight!
