day 44, 148 lbs

Yet again, another delay. I blame my hubby. He had the weekend off and we ended up having loads of adventures. Ah, well, it was fun. c:

Thursday I ended up throwing a salad together for lunch. Baby spinach, oil and vinegar, feta, pine nuts, tomatos, and salami. Yuuuuum. I went and picked apples for an hour and brought a few dozen to my women’s group. I had an apple and was almost overwhelmed by the sweetness. Wow. So damn good. I had a slice of my flognarde as well.

day 33, 149 lbs

Back to trying to, mostly, update every day. Right! Okay! 😀

Yesterday was a very peculiar day. I picked up hubby from work at 6:30 am and grabbed his friend. We went out to breakfast, where I ate an omelette the size of a small house and three pieces of bacon. I can’t make omelettes, so it is always a treat when I get one. I’m not a bad cook, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do the flippy part. I’ve followed Jacques Pépin’s instructions, but every time I try they turn into crappy scrambled eggs. Ah, well, I just need to practise more. I guess.

I finished my playthrough on Dragon Age 2 with my hubby-clone-Hawke. My first complete male playthrough ever! Go me! 😀 Admittedly, it was much easier to commit when hubby wanted to see his doppleganger kick some ass. Also, the voice actor wasn’t terribad!

I had my remaining leftover burgers for lunch and then proceeded to fall asleep until this morning. I was completely beat. Hubby was a bit upset with me. He gets out of work and I spend all day snoring away… oops.

 

So, after a thirteen hour sleep, a nice shower and cuddles with Pooch, I made breakie! Breakfast was scrambled eggs and spinach, with a big shake of coffee and protein powder. 60g of protein in the shake, baby! OM NOM NOM.

 

I haven’t had lunch yet, still super full from breakfast, but I will probably have delicious animal flesh for dinner. Nomnomnom.

 

In other news, I now fit super comfortably into my size 7 jeans. This means I am down 2 pant sizes, and down to only two pairs of jeans that fit. I am trying to reach a 4 by the time school starts. I have until September 24th! Maybe I will take my measurements again next week. I am trying to avoid measuring myself daily, because it is awkward and I am lazy and it is a bit depressing. Also, I need a proper measuring tape. Trying to measure yourself with thread, then translate that accurately to a rigid measure is… difficult, to say the least.

I need to work on drinking WAY more water and taking photographs again. And maybe in another month, I’ll be able to take a progress photo… I *do* have befores, but I took them down about five minutes after posting them. Maybe when I have something awesome to compare them to, I’ll be able to post them…

 

Until next time. Happy eating!

day twenty four, 151 lbs

Nearly a week has gone by since I even thought about my blog .Whoops! I got super, err, busy. Right. Busy.

…okay, I’m just lazy. So, recap time! Whee!

Friday night I had a gal-pal over for dinner and a movie. I made Sour Cream Pork Chops with grilled zucchini and onions. They turned out awesome! Sour Cream is such a useful, delicious item. It is probably my go-to for quick and easy dinners now. I had another one of my cupcakes, because I am a bad girl. ;D Then we went and saw The Dark Knight Rises. Gal-pal hadn’t seen it yet and we couldn’t have that. The movie was probably even better the second go round, to be honest. Probably because I didn’t have to pee through the last hour and a half.

day nineteen, 153 lbs

What a wonderful few days it has been! Tuesday night, hubby and I went to his mums place for dinner. It was very nice, not having to cook and having such a wonderful meal. I went over on my calories, sure, but it was an absolutely lovely meal and evening. Momma made spaghetti and red sauce for hubby and the others and a divine Caesar Salad (no croutons!) for me. I had some mozzarella and salami with it and it was delightful. The fresh bread was so tempting… but I stayed strong! I kept chanting in my brain “carbs are gross, carbs are gross”. Eventually I will start to believe this!

She made a wonderful keto cheesecake dessert for me. The jam preserve definitely has too much sugar, but it was a nice treat. She gave me the left over ones, so at least I can scrape the blackberry jam off the top and enjoy them at home. Mmmm, cream cheese…. yum!

I went over my limit again on Wednesday, but I was absolutely ravenous. Not sure where this hunger came from, but I was only over by like… 200 calories at least. For breakfast I had bacon, fried eggs, and some protein powder in my coffee. I nibbled on some celery and peanut butter on the side, as well. Yum!  Read the rest of this entry

day twelve, 153 lbs!!

153!!! I know it is mostly water weight but it is SO EXCITING!! I squealed like a dying pig when I saw that on my scale  this morning. 140, you are so close! Soon my driver’s license won’t be such a lie! Hooray!

So today has been a pretty awesome day! I made a Cream Cheese Pancake today! Oh my goodness was this amazing. I’ve never liked pancakes. They were always too heavy and turned my stomach. But this… this was a delight. Did it fall apart as I tried to flip it? Yes. Was it the most delicious pancake I had ever eaten? Absofuckinlutely. It tasted like fat angels making love on my tongue.

No photograph, I’m afraid, because it definitely didn’t look pretty. I need to work on my flipping technique. More butter in the pan beforehand, I think.

 

Lunch was leftover Eggplant Lasagna and some Baken-ets Hot’n’Spicy Pork Rinds.

Holy. Shit.

 

I had never eaten pork rinds before. I can’t believe I’ve gone 21 years without this amazing snack in my diet. It is fluffy and light and so fucking flavorful. It has the perfect amount of heat, forcing me to drink more water and leaving my lips tingling. Wow. Just… wow.

 

Tonight hubby and his mates are doing Friday Night Magic, so I’m going to go play the fuck out of some scrabble. I will probably get my butt handed to me. Home-girl is a scrabble MACHINE. And apparently we are having liver! Ooh la la!

Until tomorrow! Happy eating!

day three, unweighed

Good evening non-existent readers! Today was a pretty good day. :] I had lots of errands to run, namely getting canisters for my dry goods and some final ingredients for my homemade facial cleanser. Wal-Mart and Walgreens were out of Ketostix, unfortunately. I did pick up a nice water bottle and some various knick-knacks, though. And Maxx Nutrition, despite the obnoxious name, is a Ketoers paradise! A whole section of low-carb sweeteners, low carb power bars, low carb cook books, etc. I picked up some vanilla and toffee flavored liquid stevia for coffee and Xylitol for Cream Cheese Pancakes. Omnomnom.

Breakfast was half a left over zucchini pizza with some mashed cauliflower, and pepperoni. Yum! Ate again around one, made some No Shell Taco Salad and froze the leftovers. Ate a bit more than I wanted to, but I was super hungry. Also, it was amazing.

I made some Asian Pork in the slow cooker. It was incredible! Very flavorful and delicious. I served it with a side of spicy spinach.

So god damn delicious holy shit

I’ve noticed that Keto forces me to cook more creatively. I have always loved cooking, but being denied the former staples of my diet (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc) forces me to be inventive. Apparently when I am inventive, I am also incredibly delicious. Fuck yeah.

day two, unweighed

Today, I went Keto Grocery Shopping! $202.00 at Winco for quite a lot of meat and vegetables. I spent the good part of an hour vacuum sealing my meats and freezing them. Turns out, meat is super cheap when the sell-by date is tomorrow. Into the freezer you will go, my delicious animals. Omnomnom.

Breakfast was three slices of bacon, scrambled eggs, and a spoon of peanut butter. I wasn’t noticeably hungry until around 1:30. I was quite impressed. :] I need to be on my water intake, because I completely ignored my water bottle while I was shopping. It just rolled around the child seat in the cart and I was utterly oblivious. Good thing I don’t have children.

Lunch was Skillet Chicken Florentine from Linda’s Low Carb Recipes. Yum! Next time, I need to add a bit more spinach. It was served with a side of slightly runny mashed cauliflower. Oops. I think sour cream instead of heavy cream will be a better choice. I wonder if I can add almond flour to improve the texture. I will have to experiment!

I have some pork in the fridge for dinner, not sure what to do with it yet. Maybe grill it with some zucchini and squash?

No Keto Flu. Doesn’t seem to be interacting with my Sertraline either. Hooray!

I need to remember to take photos of my meals. Tomorrow will have photographs! Maybe. Possibly.

…probably not.
