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 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 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 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 four, still unweighed

I am horrifically lazy. I think I have a scale in my car, but I fail to bring it out and into the house. Also, I kind of don’t want to know how much I weigh. Tomorrow, I tell myself, tomorrow I will bring out the scale…

Today, however, I have had quite the wonderful day! Food wise, at least. Hubby has duty and I’m bored. And I have the Warrior Workout tonight. :[ I am going to hurt so baaaaad. I need to hydrate more…

Breakfast was a shake! Protein powder, spinach, soy milk, coconut oil, peanut butter and unsweetened cocoa. Yum!

holy fucking shit this was filling

Sure, it might not LOOK appetizing, but it was amazing

Lunch was reheated No-Shell Taco Salad with a side of bacon wrapped brussel sprouts. Holy shit, I actually like brussel sprouts now. Too bad I burned the ever loving fuck out of my mouth because I was impatient.

Surprisingly still awesome after being reheated in the microwave from frozen.

Dinner is yet to come! I’ll figure it out. Pretty much out of carbs, so possibly just fuck tons of bacon.

Gotta keep hydrating. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate…

Pooch in his cone of shame. Just because. c:
