Huge cheat day yesterday. I tried an experiment on myself because I felt that I was having a hard time not thinking about the diet and worrying about what I'm eating (which is so different from the first few weeks I had), so I decided to see what would happen if I let myself enjoy a day of terrible food (which I haven't done in a couple of weeks). I had a meeting, where they served homemade break, cheese, chips, etc, which I ate. Then I came home and figured that since we're having a cheat day, might as well go all out and ordered a large pizza with extra cheese, mushrooms, and chicken.

I woke up feeling crappy as expected, but I feel much more determined now and ready to tackle the week. I think I have to keep these weekly cheat days going to remind myself that I'm actually not missing much and how bad it makes me feel after.

Wow, I haven't been on here for a long time, but I am still eating somewhat Paleo. I have started eating dairy quite  a bit and I'm not seeing any adverse effects, so I will continue doing that. Other than that, I think I've been pretty good! Husband now only eats Paleo at home, but it seems to be working for him.

Today:

Breakfast:coffee with half & half, cottage cheese with strawberries and a little honey

Lunch: fried seafood (clams, shrimp, etc) with curry spices.

Yesterday:
coffee; lettuce wrap with tuna; unsweet ice tea; salad with avocado, tomatoes, and cucumbers; fried peppers, fried brussel sprouts, beef; wine.

The day before:
coffee; fried beef with scrambled eggs; salad with avocado, tomatoes, and cucumbers; fried peppers, fried brussel sprouts, beef; wine.

The day before:
coffee; rare steak and eggs; fried sweet potatoes; zucchini "fries"; wine

Don't remember before that. But I have started eating much more fish, so I'm quite happy with that. I have also gotten over my hatred of zucchini and other vegetables.

I can't believe it's been almost half a year already! I feel pretty good (and weigh in at a stable 61kg. I started at 67!)

I've been away a long time too but it sure feels good to be back :) Must be the fall that's getting me back in gear! Dang potatoes have become a dreadful weakness for me--other than that we seem to have similar eating habits and cheese...I think i lived on it for the last month so I'm cutting back some on that but it is my other weakness for sure! off to cook a roast  :)

Unfortunately, I fell off the good eating plan for a good three months, but now both me and my husband have started again last week. I have gained a lot of weight back. I haven't weighed myself, but I probably weigh at least 65kg again. I would like to lose the weight, but I also want to make sure not to restrict myself too much so I don't stop this way of eating.

Today:
Breakfast - coffee with cream
Snacks - cheese stick, almonds, 5 tiny tomatoes, 2 radishes, tried a gross wild citrus fruit that I picked off a tree that I was walking by, and sweet potato and beet chips
Lunch - tuna salad wrapped in lettuce with cheese, tomato, and cucumber.
Dinner - fried chicken, egg salad with imitation crab sticks, and some peas (husband really wanted them :) )
Now drinking wine and eating raw coconut from the shell.

For some reason I never liked potatoes! But I do love cheese! I really like roasts, but I typically can't force myself to cook anything more than just putting some ingredients in a pan and frying them for ten or so minutes... :)
