Super weak this morning. Feel almost winded and heavy. Blah, I had to have eaten enough yesterday. Trying to get motivated to get off my butt and make some breakfast. Little nauseous. Starting with chicken broth.

Late breakfast. Ended up having some white potato fried in coconut oil with 2 eggs on top. Not paleo, purely a crutch to not feeling well today.
Snacked on leftovers from yesterday rest of the day. Gonna take a hot bath and go to bed early.

My 1/2 cow will be here tomorrow afternoon. Maybe a few days of steaks will get me over the hump. Think it may be PMS, I don't get cramps but definitely do not feel well a few days before and generally feel like crap.

Yesterday ended up being 1/2 a smoothie and leftovers the rest of the day.

Today:
Breakfast- 5 sausage stuffed mushrooms (leftovers) and Coke Zero
Lunch- 1/2 fruit smoothie with coconut milk
Snack- A weird 85% dark chocolate, pecan, coconut oil, small date concoction that was only a few bites but filled my craving
Dinner- 2 Turkey bacon avocado lettuce wraps and spicy green beans with ice tea

Beef thawing for tomorrow night. Don't want to make a habit out of the smoothies but might take one to work with me tomorrow to get through. Back up plan for work is Souvlaki over greek salad

Today was definitely better than yesterday.

Looks reasonably good.

Any chance of switching from smoothies to whole fruit?  The chewing action releases saliva that contains the amylase needed to better digest the sugar in fruit.

I have a overabundance of frozen fruit. I'll have to experiment to see which fresh fruits don't bother my tongue. Not allergic just geographic tongue. Fresh fruit and peels seem to be the worse and its really annoying more than painful. Like when you burn your tongue. Not planing on having smoothies as a regular thing either way.

Ran late- Short shift today.

Breakfast- Drive thru Wendy's for a side of sausage and a side of bacon with mustard. Coke Zero.

Lunch- Sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers with a little souvlaki. Smaller portion. Diet pepsi ( Ugh, working next to a fountain machine)

Home, little weak, sure I need some more carbs and calories but not feeling it at the moment. Husband has been super sick last few days. Hope I'm not catching it. Gonna take a hot bath and a nap.

Lol, coworker convinced me to take off a little early as they were making spaghetti and garlic bread for staff meal. That was a good call, i'm sure that would have caused a binge for me.

Taking a break from paleo even though I am committed to it. Having a EGD done on the 23rd and don't want to skew the testing if they do a biopsy for Celiac disease or miss a chance to see the results under "normal" conditions. Right back on it after the testing.

Hello!

Breakfast- 3 eggs in ghee

Snack- 3 paleo strawberry gummies . Oh man, surprised I actually like them, made them for my son but at just lemon juice, strawberries and gelatin, they were pretty good. Small sour bites!

Lunch- Celery and cream cheese

Dinner- No idea yet, cupboards are bare although plenty of meat in the freezer. Probably will just eat the last lonely brat in the fridge while I'm cleaning it out.

Wish me luck, I ate REALLY bad last week so I hope the detox is bearable, especially since I am struggling with pain in my face right now as well.  Been a on and off thing but more on than off for the last 6 months. Trying one last med then looking at a nerve block. Have many chronic issue but this pain is different and really unbearable. Like a toothache, the drilled and hit a nerve kind, almost all the time. Saw 3 dentists, a ENT and a neurologist and ready to try anything. 2 of the 4 think it is my trigeminal nerve. Runs above my teeth on my left side, up towards my nose and the cheek feels like I have been punched. The punched feeling is constant but the more severe above the teeth thing comes and goes.

Planned to hit grocery stores today but its crappy out there. Stocking up tomorrow. Pulling out ground beef and steaks to thaw. The beef is amazing! I may just drowned my sorrows in steak all week :P
