Yesterday went well. I had planned eat 1000 cals of protein bars. I stayed low carb but needed extra food to dispel the mental fog during my extra long work day.

Today is the same situation. My moodiness suggests I am burning through glycogen stores. Looking forward to a relaxing catch up day tomorrow, and ratcheting down the calories.

Today I felt energetic. That might be from the good night's sleep I got, or getting into ketosis, or both. I still have some hunger, but I think it's from letting myself get bored. It's a relief to be free of the constant, nagging urge to eat.

B egg white omelet, salsa; coffee/protein shake
S protein chips
L protein chips, salad, HB egg, evoo
S B-Up bar, TJs Cheese Bites
D chicken and roasted cabbage

Cals 1350 net carbs 32

Today started off with a bang. I felt energetic, but later on felt insatiable hunger that just wouldn't quit. That hunger usually precedes weight loss, but I have a hard time tolerating it. And today I didn't. I stuck with low carb, so at least it will be easy to recover tomorrow. I'm sure calories were close to 2000 if not over. I am going to focus on tolerating unpleasant hunger. If it feels insatiable, then it probably isn't hunger.

Yesterday was another low carb high calorie day. Today is much better. Still fighting the urge to eat whenever I have an unpleasant thought. I've acquired some habits in the last few weeks that I need to change. But I don't feel sluggish, and I am starting to remember to divert my attention rather than act on those urges to eat.

Calories will be 1145, carbs 52

B B up bar, coffee got up early to go on a hike
S Dill pickle-flavored protein chips
L Salad with HB egg, evoo, Chicken soup w broccoli
S coffee with protein shake and milk
D Chicken

EDIT later in the day. I feel full with little appetite. I thought I must have overeaten, but tracking calories, I see I'm within my target range. It's so much easier to stay on track without feeling hungry--hope it lasts.

Early day, another outdoor adventure.
B B-up bar, coffee & protein shake

EDIT I got a lot of exercise climbing around the rocky shore, and that felt great. I derailed myself by thinking I could have extra carbs. Crab salad sandwich by the ocean, very fresh. And that was a slippery slope to eating way too many calories.

This last week has been mixed, which means maintaining. I'm low carb but still eating a lot. Stress, boredom, habit, but no cravings. Things are a little calmer in my life and I see a window of opportunity to focus my energy on my goal of getting back my healthy eating habit, and fitting into my clothes.

Today:
B Baked egg white with pizza seasoning & veggies, a little ground turkey. Protein shake splash in coffee
L Big salad with veggies, chicken breast, evoo added to 0-cal dressing
S Protein chips and mockamole-yum
D great big turkey burger, made from ground turkey that I bought already seasoned. It was so good, it felt like a treat. Roasted cabbage 'steaks'

Calories are 1016, carbs 42. + 1/2 jar of Walden Farms chocolate dip = a few more cals & carbs

There is still time to get into evening snacking, but I am resolved to hold the line. I got a reality check at the store today, buying a few things for a camping trip next week.

It was nice to wake up with hunger, rather than still satisfied from evening eating. It's tricky to eat enough with getting hungry later in the morning, and then all day long. A morning bird count hike added a variable to the mix.
B Egg white bake with pizza seasoning & veggies, ground turkey, splash of protein shake/coffee
S Roasted Brussels sprouts, mockamole, protein chips
L salad with veggies & chicken, evoo-based dressing
D will be the yummy turkey meatloaf burger with roasted cabbage. Something with portabello mushroom that isn't cheese.

Calories 1300 carbs 55 A little on the high side---cooking for the week and tasting it all.

Woke up before 3 am and felt like it was time to eat breakfast, which I did, and went back to sleep. Long work day, bring it on.
B (in the wee hours) egg white bake with pizza veggies and sauce
B 2 cups coffee with protein shake/cashew milk
S protein chips and mockamole, which tastes so much better with the squeeze of lime
L salad with veggies, chicken, HB egg, evoo & 0-cal dressing
D turkey burger, Brussel's sprouts, butternut squash fries (baked, from TJoe,s)
S protein bar, last of the roasted cabbage

Total 1250, carbs 55

I've been eating low carb but again too many low carb calories. Last day before vacation, and will see if I can wind down. Menus has been consistent with addition of extra protein snacks.

Back from vacation. Lots of hiking, no snacking. But reverted to my typical end of vacation overeating on the last day & day of return. But feeling refreshed and ready to start again.
B English muffin with chicken & homemade walnut pesto. Coffee with cocnut milk. They have discontinued my whey protein lightener. Trying what worked well on vacation, 3 good sized meals and a bedtime snack.

Hi, Sundove, so this is where you've gone! That walnut pesto sounds yum.

Hi Chunkalunkah!

Today is day 7 of sticking to a program. Things went haywire before then & I realized how unhappy my weight gain was making me. I'm back on the program before all the stuff happened that got me derailed. I have a long way before I am back to my clothes fitting the way I like.
Yesterday's calories were about 1090, plus some sugared chewing gum.
B ham/cheese omelet from a mix, coffee with cashew milk
L grilled chicken and Brussel's sprouts
D salad with egg, evoo, veggies, WF Italian vinaigrette, protein chips & salsa
S 2 packages of protein chips, cauliflower

Today was about the same as yesterday. Working on tolerating hunger--once I start losing weight I get unpleasant hunger pangs that won't stop. I'm not starving, just a little hungry! But I nevertheless react by eating with a sense of urgency, and over shoot what I need to be satisfied.
