so another month gone - poof.. trying to re-up and be better, more accountable... maybe i should consider it a daily "one day challenge" 8)
coffee prewod/postwod w/little cream
5 small stuffed jalapenos w/cream cheese, colby jack, and finely chopped sausage (homemade... and of course i can barely keep up with our jalapeno's from the garden.. we've had sooo many, and i really appreciate the russian roulette style they offer - most seem pretty mild, and then you bite into one that knocks your socks off!
a salad w/cucumbers, black olives, 1/2 a green pepper, and peppercorn dressing - likely about 2 cups worth or less
3 sliced squares of leftover paleo pizza
other half of my pepper w/little dressing .. 4, maybe 3, cherry tomatoes
@350ish (kinda hungry, and my water isn't cutting it!)
had a quarter of this baked chicken thing i made
after 5.. couple of beef bites, 2 1/2 paleo chocolate chip cookies
after 7.. made a hamburger and green bean mix up w/sourcream and cream cheese and spices.. added on top of spaghetti squash - quite yummy
July 18th - July 22nd..
Holy Heck.. my life is cr-A-zy!
still eatting good, except that I have managed to eat fast food twice in a 3 day period.. once at Arbys (which caused horrible smelling gas in my son) (which is bad in a car full of people that are NOT all your family, except your baseball family) (which is what happens when you DON'T feed your children fast food very often!)... I had a roast beef with no bun, and small fry. back to what I have been eating then, seriously no fruit - maybe a couple of blueberries here and there. There was ice cream the other night.. it was defnitely a go big or go home kind of night. other then that, still very strict, still teetering on my ketones... and making it work for me.
There have been lots of eggs, mostly hard boiled
I am managing our kale, since we have it coming out of our ears, all by myself... that said, this is not your normal kale - i believe it is called winter red, or at least has a few different names it goes by - anyways, i much prefer this to regular kale - not as bitter, mostly lettuce like.. very tasty
a rotissere chicken, some turkey & roast beef lunch meats
olive oil and my homemade dressing
little balsamic vinegar here and there
except for last night at the silverhawks game with the team... we had nachos to split and didn't finish them - they are $7.50 and feed two people easily.. ours was with chicken, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, salsa, and jalapenos - and 2 larger glasses of white wine
now all of this said, my ketones were burning super high before the game - and woke up this morning still managing a trace despite my nachos and wine.. had nothing this morning to try and swing me back into ketosis again and had more turkey and kale w/olive oil for lunch
Hmmm.. July 1st.. to July 13th..
Holiday, friends, vacation, never ending baseball tournaments.. you name it.. I wasn't horrible, but not my best either.. at the same time, you need to just enjoy right?
Kind of.. because of my liberties I decided on Sunday to do my own detox...
some amazing pancakes from tamis, eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee w/rumchata :=)
lunch was impromptu pool get together at "grandma" ritas -- old family friend
chicken, veggies, few chips and taco dip & salsa, green beans and potatoes... pretty small amount, more chicken later
3 mango/rasberry ritas - couldn't turn my Godson away
at Cathy's.. 5 of Angela's cookies.. yes 5, but I hadn't eaten anything and they were super yummy (because of course they had butter!)
food -- yummy food
pork roast, chips, salsa, guac, veggies, all of the above and alcohol - more than I know, but I paced
of course there was a ton of watermelon wedges involved, and pineapple too -- watermelon soaked in alcohol - not my favorite, pineapple soaked in alcohol = super yummy!
Got to bed after 3, of course my ass wakes up still at 5:40, fell back asleep till 6 - woohoo.
Every day is a new day Robin... and as Carole has said in the past -- you are only has bad as your last meal! Meaning if lunch is bad, dinner doesn't need to be... I always remember that... and it holds true for me! I also heard an awesome quote from a dear friend fo mine who is super passionate about food... "Do not reward yourself with food.. you are not a dog!" For some reason that one really sticks with me.
2 eggs over medium
3 pcs of bacon
1 non gmo corn tortilla i cooked - most rolled together with the above in the middle - yum!
grande americano w/some heavy whip.. just that kind of morning.. possibly because the alarm went off, but I need a break - 4 days in a row and I am feeling it, never went back to sleep, up early enough and ready ahead of time to make breakfast, and lunch, and leave early -- well Starbucks was just an extra feather in my early bird cap!
left over salad around 11ish from last night
around 1.. left overs - same as yesterday I think, except not but a couple of bites potatoes, all squash, and one rib
few pumpkin seeds and last of my coffee at 3
grabbed 2 slices of roast beef out the door...
late, late dinner.. and starving
few tortilla chips, maybe 12 total w/homemade guac
made an unwhich with roast beef and cheese and turkey and mayo, and tomatoes, and cucumbers
had a couple of bites of kids rice, and turkey sausage - gluten free, but with the chips - shoulda passed.
around 3.. 3 slices of left over pizzas, like little squares
around 7.. my mom and michael are over..
we have boneless ribs, homemade bbq sauce, grilled squash, grilled potatoes, salad (Cathy's salad w/apples, onions, bleu cheese, and nuts)
vodka and lacroix.. maybe 2 1/2ish.. they were here for awhile.. we were replacing a microwave.. lotta work being done!
post wod, a coconut water and a fruit buddy pouch
out to breakfast - philly steak omelette, some american fries, water
at Cathy's - :}
4 of Chris' drinks - umm, something that tastes that good, without tasting like a bunch of alcohol is super dangerous, but still yummy
for dinner.. a sausage, little bit of moist chicken, salad, fruit, guac and chips, fair share of yummy buffalo dip and chips, sweet potatoes, all yummy yummy things
after all that we played volleyball.. 3 games.. no idea how long, it was fun though with the kiddos :]
