Folks, that's how you do it. 10 pounds gone! This week was rough. I made a poor food decision on Monday and I paid for it for days. The shredded beef I made needed to have more fat cut off of it and I needed to take the extra step and make my own BBQ sauce. I have a recipe but it will take time to put it together. And I was too lazy. And I paid for it.

I'm still sick. I'm trying to keep up with keeping track of what I consume but sometimes it's hard to remember. I switched to G2 Gatorade but it's still sugar. And I don't care. I may make some scrambled eggs soon. Our better yet, get someone to make them for me.

Breakfast was 3 eggs. I had a coconut and almond Kind bar as a snack. Lunch was a curried chicken salad with balsamic vinaigrette. The family is having tacos but I out the meat inside lettuce leaves. I tracked my calories today and went over by about 50 calories. That didn't count the small piece of beef jerky I had when I got home. I picked up some coconut paste and was thinking about making some whipped cream out off it with the vanilla I have. Maybe I'll hold off until tomorrow.

What I did eat today. A "Kind" almond and coconut bar, beef jerky, BBQ'd beef, salad with vinaigrette, sweet potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper, coffee with unsweetened almond milk and 1/4 cup of cashews (not in that order). What I didn't eat. Fluffy sugar cookies covered in red frosting, hot cocoa, whipped cream or soda.
Both days had eggs, bacon, salad, cashews, beef jerky and tea. I did have a Starbucks coffee on Friday. I also had two small suckers at work on Friday. All in all, I didn't do half bad. Tonight at work, I drank two big sips of Diet Pepsi. The pain was excruciating!!! My throat instantly started closing up with acid reflux. My stomach felt like it was trying to claw its easy out through my front. I felt feverish and clammy. It reminded me again why I can't have that. My mantra has been "I don't eat that" and not "I can't have that." I can't have that means I've been deprived. I don't eat (our in this case, drink) that. It's a choice.

It was egg and bacon day! It was what was for breakfast and dinner. Shopping is tomorrow! I'll probably just get more eggs and bacon. Lunch was an impromptu salad with ham. I didn't have dressing so I got a lite raspberry vinaigrette. It's technically cheating because it had high fructose corn syrup but I figured it was the lesser evil (as compared to ranch our thousand island etc). I keep reminding myself that I need to wean myself first. As long as I'm not shoving baked goods in my mouth then it's a victory.

I woke up hungry but didn't feel like eating. Is that weird? I drank a cup of coffee with almondmilk and ate a bunch of almonds. I was definitely hungry but the thought of eating made me nauseous. Today was our departmental retreat and I made my mind up that I wasn't going to drink anymore coffee. So, I walked in, and without thinking I poured myself some coffee. I can't drink my coffee black so I had to use creamer (dairy). Habits are hard to break. The rest of the day I drank hot tea and unsweetened ice tea. Lunch was turkey and ham on lettuce with mustard and a side of fruit. It should have been more than enough but I was still hungry. I went back and got a small bowl of vegetarian chili. I didn't have cookies or rice crispy treats. I did have two small dum dum suckers and when I got back to the office, I had a few sweet tarts. I figured, if I was going to have sugar, it was a small amount. Dinner was salad with balsamic vinaigrette, ham and bacon. The salad dressing should have been plain oil and vinegar but you use what you have.
What I have noticed is that my face is breaking out. I figured it wouldn't be breaking out. I hope it doesn't last for long.

Day 2. I really didn't plan this well because I can't shop for food until Friday. Breakfast was eggs and the last of the ham I was trying to eat (before it went bad). Lunch was a chicken curry salad with balsamic vinaigrette. I had a banana for a snack but by the afternoon I started to crash hard. I had sweet tarts that my mom brought to me. I tried to eat them slow and was mostly successful. However, I did not eat them all. And I did not eat the chocolate or treats on the back counter. Small victories. Dinner was the last of the taco meat in lettuce with mineral water.

Until I get paid, we have limited food in the house. For breakfast I had eggs and ham, lunch was a grilled chicken breast with grilled mushrooms and onions on lettuce and dinner was taco meat wrapped in lettuce. I did snack on almonds while getting dinner ready. I feel hungry but I don't believe I am. But I don't feel like I'm going to throw up (which is an almost nightly occurrence).
