I was most surprised to find that I jumped right out of bed on day 2. Normally my kids come in and wake me up and it takes me about 15 minutes to break out of my haze.
I ended up getting a little stain on my record yesterday. Some friends and I went to see a movie and I really wanted some popcorn. Now that I think about it, it seems really lame of me to want stupid popcorn so badly. Normally when I go to the movies I take my huge movie cup and have a cherry coke and share a medium popcorn with hubby but last night I went prepared. I didn’t even bring my soda cup and when i got to the concession I asked the girl to give me a small popcorn with only one scoop of popcorn. she looked at me like I was a crazy person. But it worked. I told my self that I would allow myself a cheat one meal a week instead of a whole cheat day, so that’s going to have to count as a cheat meal this week.
As far as my stats go…I’m still seeing great results. This may be hard for you to believe, but on Tuesday I measured my waist and it was 30″. This morning (Friday) It was 28′!!!! With this primal diet I am supposed to lose between 1-2 pounds of fat per week. Crazy!! I can’t wait to have my body fat tested tomorrow to see the changes there!
So official food diary for day 2
Breakfast: 1 egg with leftover elk steak (1 oz) salsa and 1/4 of an avocado
Snack- handful of macadamias and 3 small pieces of beef jerky
Snack- 1/2 cup of greek yogurt and 1/2 tablespoon of honey (this is incredibly delicious. I think I had a dream about it last night)
Snack- Whey protein smoothie with 1/2 cup strawberries and more macadamias
Dinner- Pork ribs (fat trimmed off) and steamed asparagus
Then 5 cups of popcorn at the movies, which now I know I can probably do without next time
My protein count yesterday was crazy!! 89 grams
carbs: 89grams- my goal is to stay right around 75 so I went over there. stupid popcorn
Fats-103 grams and that was right on.
total calories 1531 but after my heavy deadlifts and running at the gym, I burned 350 calories, so it ended up being a total intake of 1181.
My goal today…Drink a gallon and a half of water!
