Day 5 (30 Day Challenge)

Coffee w/ half & half, coconut oil, 2 tbs sugar
Handful of trader joes trail mix (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried apple pieces).

IF until 1430. Challenging period at work where I had to avoid eating cake... grrr... stupid work that rewards everything with carby food.

Broke my fast with some leftover ground beef mixed with some pickled jalapenos... mental note: never eat jalapenos... they are just not agreeable.

Dinner was 1/2 petite sirloin (not very tasty) and 1/2 baked potato with butter and sour cream. I was not feeling hungry at all... but i was feeling sick and the wife pushed me to eat something rather than deal with an upset stomach. I appreciate that... but i still feel like crap...

Day 4 (30 Day Challenge)

I think i waited too long to write this... i dont remember what I ate today... i know i did not deviate too badly.

I tried to make some fajitas for dinner with Carne Asada and canned green chilies... it tasted alright, but it was sort of watered down and just not flavorful. I had this with a salad.

Day 2 (30 day challenge)

No coffee this morning.

IF from 7 pm until 3 pm.

10 oz. Tuna Salad w/ egg, celery, onion, mustard, mayo, salt, pepper, garlic powder
Small salad w/ ranch

Tall iced coffee w/ half & half and two tbs sugar

10 pieces of salami

6 oz. Salmon (oven roasted with mustard/soy sauce/honey glaze)

My carb cravings are a bit difficult to understand today. It is only day two, and I am not trying to eliminate all carbs like with Atkins, just scale them way back. I think the iced coffee this afternoon kicked off something in my brain.

30 Day Primal Challenge - Starts September 12th

Title says it all. I am going all in this time around. Can I make it? If I pretend to be confident in my lack of willpower will it make a difference? Logically... probably not... Enthusiastically... Hell yes!
