Tag Archives: chorizo and eggs

day ten, 158 lbs!!

So, I’ve been out of action for a bit. Friday was the first time eating out on Keto! Needless to say, I kicked ass. We went out to Silver City with the family and a friend. I had a HUGE dinner, but it was totally worth it. :] I had a steak with green beans and roasted garlic, with some coffee and the scraped off toppings of their flatbread. Yum!

Saturday was moving day for my Mother-in-law! I made chorizo and eggs for five. The others had toast, I had coffee. Keto has gotten me hooked on coffee. Especially with my liquid stevia that tastes like toffee… oh my goodness it is crazy delicious. How have I lived without this?!

The move went smoothly enough (though the apartment complex is staffed by jerks) and I made Pork Florentine for dinner. The boys had pasta alfredo on the side and I had massive quantities of spinach. Spinach is amazing!

Saturday night, my husband’s former recruiter arrived from California. He’s returning to the Nimitz after a tour in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, hubby had duty on Sunday so it was just me and the buddy. We went out to Trapper’s Sushi, where I was strong! So strong! I had a rather lot of sashimi and a handroll with minimum rice. It was pretty damn delicious, though I was CRAVING the tempura rolls like crazy. :[

Sunday evening I reheated the last of my No Shell Taco Salad and made home made pizza rolls for the buddy. I had one, but each has 4 grams of net carbs and I didn’t trust myself to have restraint. :[

Yesterday was Monday! Monday was good, actually. I overate like crazy at lunch, easily eating a pound of super fatty pork chops and a giant salad. Hubby was a bit upset that I didn’t have dinner, but I was stuffed. We took Pooch to the Waterfront, which he loved. He got to run around and be pet by loads of people. He’s such an attention whore. 😛 Some friends came over for dinner, so I threw some steaks on the grill and my home-girl made mac and cheese for the boys. Home-girl is more Paleo than Keto, but she also abhors carbs. I am not alone~~~! We settled down with Pooch and watched Top Gear while the boys played Magic. It was a most enjoyable evening. :]

dawww

He herped so hard, he derped

Now, finally, we reach today! Today is TUESDAY! I broke my fast around two o clock with Eggplant Lasagna.

omnomnom

Eggplant, Squash, Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Pepperoni

It was scrumptious! 10 net carbs per serving, but 15.43 g of protein and 21 g of fat. :] I was craving pasta, so this seemed like an awesome substitute. No squash next time, though. So many carbs!!

Hubby and I are going to a friends for dinner tonight for some low country cooking. Said homie will, hopefully, make me a portion that doesn’t have potatoes and corn. He’s pretty understanding, and a kick ass cook, so I will keep my portion sizes low and hopefully stay in ketosis.

Now, to drink more water!

day five, still unweighed because i am a lazy fuck

Good news! I brought the scale inside the house! I haven’t actually stepped on it, but you know… whatever. I’ll do it tomorrow! 😀

Today has been an interesting day! Well, let’s start with last night. (I am a master of flow and chronology!) Last night was Warrior. Warrior was… well, it sucked. After two laps around the track my legs were just stiff and hating me. As if I had run ten miles. I was tired on the insides of my thighs. :[ So it definitely wore me out. My upper body was okay but I was just run down. Not working out for a month and a half and then radically changing your source of energy will do that, I suppose. Bummer!

I knew that working out was going to be a bit tough and my stamina was going to be reduced but… GOD DAMN. I guess I hadn’t really internalised that. Whoooooops.

So, today! I fasted from after Warrior until noon today. Wasn’t hungry until 11 am, but I figured I would wait. Interesting experience! I had a handmade mozzarella stuffed burger with no bun and a big ass salad. Yuuuuum! No photos, because I forgot. Whoops!

I got to walk Pooch for the first time in two weeks with my husband. Pooch was thrilled, naturally. Our neighbors called us into their large yard and we got to let the dogs run around and play with their dog. Very kind people! They gave us a large bowl of their home-grown lettuce. I am definitely having an awesome lettuce/spinach salad tomorrow for lunch. 😀 And they are growing zucchini and invited us to wander by and grab some when it comes in! Yessssss! I can’t wait until I can have my own garden and grow too many vegetables!

After the walk, Isaac was craving a breakfast burrito. So I made some CHORIZO and eggs! CHORIZO and eggs because my CHORIZO to egg ratio was waaay off. Even though I used 8 eggs. Thus, CHORIZO. And some bell peppers, garlic, scallion, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, lime juice… I had mine in a bowl and hubby had two burritos. I kind of miss tortillas, but the only carb craving I had today was for some almond milk ice cream. :[  I will have to have a fast day again and have super low carbs so I can have some. It is delicious and cappucino and omnomnomnom.

I’m going to try another 8pm-12pm fast again. I didn’t overeat when I broke it, which was quite surprising. Reddit was right, Keto fills you up like CRAZY. Delicious fats, you are so awesome.

I need to hydrate more (second day in a row of being bad! Damn it!). And my bottom has been quite productive. Hopefully it settles out. I thought I was supposed to get constipated, not all runny. :[ Oh well.

Tomorrow I need to get my ass over to the old apartment and finish clearing it out. Hopefully hubby gets off work early enough to help. And Saturday we have a very good friend coming to stay the night/a move to orchestrate. I’m pretty sure we’re going to Trapper’s… going to be very awkward explaining to the chefs that, no, I really am ordering only sashimi… Hopefully my willpower is strong enough to resist the Trump. ;_;

I will be strong. I MUST be strong.
