How was everyone's day? Jcent and e.taylor - glad to hear you both did well!
I had a great day today. Lots of protein today, protein shake mid morning, a grass fed lean ground beef homemade hamburger (3 oz) for lunch with cheese and veggies, 1/2 a protein bar after the gym, and an omelette with cheese, mushrooms and ham for dinner.
I ALSO got to go to the gym (my body really missed it, and stepped right up to the task! It felt exhilarating!)! It had been about 3 or 4 weeks since I could go as I've been pulling 18 hour workdays to finish some projects before Christmas. As a bonus, my gym was giving out freshly washed apples to people - so I shared one with DD when I got home. That was my only sugar today.
I had an NSV (non-scale victory) today, thought I'd share with my pals here - I went shopping after the gym with a friend. I was in a regular clothing store, and found a pair of size 14 capris for my vacation. I put them on and they FIT. I've gone from a very tight size 24 to a size 14 (34 inch waist)! I'm not done, but I'm on my way!
I agree with you ladies - this isn't a diet for me. It's the only way my body functions well. I get depressed, and have migraines that keep me in bed for a week at a time if I eat processed sugar or wheat/carbs. Not to mention the weight gain, the insulin and other hormone problems I have (from Insulin Resistance and PCOS), infertility... yeah... carbs are freaking evil for my body. My body is NORMAL now, without all that stuff.
e.taylor - can I ask for the recipe for your cream cheese squares? I'd love to try making them. I tried a gluten free donut recipe recently, and I butchered it. I need more recipes to try new things. LOL.
