Recovery Day 1
Okay, it's not easy when you just don't want to eat. But I ate food anyway, and it kinda reminded me how good, well, good food is. Tomorrow I fast. I'm looking forward to it, oddly enough. I'm looking forward to the feeling of being hungry f... Read more
Three-Day Binge Recovery
This is a shout-out for Methuselah's site "Pay Now, Live Later," which has a post on a three-day binge recovery. What I like is that he completely admits to having done the binge thing, well, more times than he'd like to admit! The recovery pl... Read more
Okay, it is time to reconnect with my paleo self. Hubby and I have had serious munchies this week, so it's really been a dietary disaster. So I planned out all my food for next week and made sure I am eating 2000 calories a day. I actually ha... Read more
Okay, that's a funny situation to be stuck in. I am simply not gaining weight. Surely I should have gained a pound by now, right? But even after that feast on horrible-for-you Southern food at the buffet on Saturday, by yesterday I had lost ... Read more
I suppose the good thing about having family that lives in the freaking middle of nowhere is that they get to know people who do middle-of-nowhere kinds of things, like go hunting for deer and then having them butchered for eating. My MIL was k... Read more
Well, I planned for Thanksgiving, but I did not plan for what would happen if all the days I planned forwent unplanned! Oops!
Stephen and I left for Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon and along the way stopped in Dallas to look at beds at Pott... Read more
Thanks for all the comments! I'm at least glad to know that I'm not crazy or overreacting.
On that note, I had a lesson yesterday with my teacher. It was the best. lesson. ever.
I had a lesson on Sunday with my other teacher in the... Read more
Crash and Burn
This weekend I totally crashed and burned. I was doing well, too, halfway to my next two weeks ofsticking to my diet. I'll have to start over today.
It's four in the morning right now and I am having trouble sleeping. That's partly becau... Read more
Here Come the Holidays
Okay, one of the peeves about eating paleo is dealing with the holidays. I know my parents will do their best to cater to my desires because, well, they're my parents. And I already know I will give in a little, partly because I can't give up ... Read more
My parents were in town on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so that made this a very interesting weekend. Here's how it went down:
Thursday night we went to dinner at a local place called Mr. Chopsticks. They serve very fresh and delicious... Read more
Reflecting on the First Week
Okay, I have been eating super-low-carb for a week. Not zero-carb. I don't think I could handle that. Here's a little of what I experienced:
The first few days, I felt like crap. We had some severe weather move through north Texas, and ... Read more
Alrighty, today I did the weigh-in thing, and here are the stats:
Lower arm: 9"
Upper arm: 9.5"
I did a couple of online bod... Read more
Hmmm, I got a little excited and decided to start my program a little early. I figured after a weekend of carb overload, going really low-carb this week wouldn't hurt. So here I am, actually trying to figure out how to get enough calories when... Read more
Clearly I do not have much intrinsic motivation, given the epic fail I had this weekend. It started with an innocent piece of pumpkin cake on Friday afternoon and collapsed into a whole pumpkin cake, chips, ice cream, etc. over the course of th... Read more
Just Some Thoughts
Ah, I finally have a few minutes to sit down and blog! I don't have much to say, but here it goes...
I have been eating plenty of calories, within my range, but I noticed that I'm still kinda hungry a lot. I think when I set my nutrient g... Read more
