21 DSD Day 10, I’m just not hungry.

I started my morning with my usual Bullet Proof coffee, with my additions.  16 ounces of hot dark roast coffee, 2 TBS Kerry Gold unsalted butter 1 tsp cinnamon and organic heavy cream.  put all that in my Blendtec blender and it’s just like a Latte!  I have tons of phone calls I make and errands to get done.  I get that done and move to time to fuel my body.  I have two Buffalo Chicken Egg muffins and a 1/2 cup of cinnamon roasted Butternut squash.  I have to show some love to Balanced Bites for this!  Here is the link for the recipe,  and the site.  I highly recommend the book!!!  http://balancedbites.com/2013/02/easy-recipe-buffalo-chicken-egg-muffins.html

I go to see my Chiropractor today, but thought I’d take care of getting the shopping done for my Angel Tree gift.  It’s 1:00 in the afternoon on a Wednesday and the whole city of Dallas decided they were going shopping at Walmart.  Needless to say, I left empty handed and had just enough time to get to my 3:00 p.m. visit.  I leave Dr. Cox’s office feeling awesome and go to get what I need for the Angle Tree. I munch on a small handful of pistachio’s on my way to Hades/ Walmart.   As I’m finishing up my visit to Hades,  I mean Walmart, I realize, I haven’t eaten much today.  I remember that I had gotten some really good sugar free Nitrate and Nitrite free Chicken breast from the deli at my favorite scary store and I go get some.  I grabbed a bunch of green tipped banana’s while I’m there.  I pay for my items get in the Black Beast ( Dodge Ram, I love this truck, btw!!!)  And munch on some meat and a banana on my way home, in RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC!  I get home and figure I’d better have something else to eat today.  I go into my kitchen and literally throw together a really tasty soup.  I will give the details below, after I show off my epic brunch.

Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients and bring back to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Beat egg well and bring soup back to a boil and slowly add egg while mixing soup vigorously.

21 DSD Day 8 It seems all I do is cook, prepare and buy food!

I’m starting to feel like I am consumed with nothing but preparations for the 21 DSD so I don’t slip up or fail!  Yesterday I had a case of the I don’t want to do anythings.  That put me leaving the house to go to Costco at 4:30 p.m.  I had taken out the eggs I needed to make one of the recipes in the 21 DSD book and it was so late by the time I got home, I ate them for dinner.  I will say though I got side tracked at J.C. Penny’s buying Christmas gifts.  I am happy to say, all the females on my list that are in Texas are done!!!  And a bonus two guys are taken care of as well.  I did get my DH something for his birthday, December 8th 🙂 , now I only have the DH, my sister and husband, mom, mom in law and two brother in law’s left.  And last but not least the 3 teen nephews and one new nephew!  The teens get cash, so they are pretty much taken care of as well.  Not a lot of food pictures for the 8th day, but I will list what I had where there is not pictures.

ImageNot very hungry, so I had Kalona full fat cottage cheese and Greek tomato cucumber salad.

 

Dinner was 4 scrambled eggs and Brussel sprouts Tiffany gave me.  I snacked on 1 ounce of cheese and pistachio’s when I shopped.  That’s it for today.

21 DSD Day 5, still hanging on!

I haven’t really noticed anything different, no major mood swings, no carb flu, no break outs.  I do tend to not be as hungry as I was.  What I did notice is when I finally do get hungry I am HANGRY, ( hungry and angry) and a little, okay a lot mean.  I tend to get caught up in what I’m doing and since I don’t get little hunger pains, when I am hungry it’s really late.  

I have my bullet proof coffee every morning one hour after I take my thyroid medication.  Which has been 16 ounces of hot coffee 2 TBS unsalted Kerry Gold butter, 2 TBS Raw cream and either cinnamon or cacao powder.  Today just plain, no added spices.   I will usually have some breakfast around 10:00 to 11:00 which I have been on a smoothie kick lately.  I have pictures and will list ingredients.  Then I get errands and chores done.  The last week almost two, that has included taking care of a sick husband and some really fun dogs I have been dog sitting.  I have been letting my time management skills go to the dogs!  I have been having a lot of fun playing and loving on these three sweet pups and time has just swooshed by.  I’m going to miss my daily visits with them!  Then after playing with the bff’s gang, I have to show my own rotten children extra love, because they can smell that I have been cheating on them.  I notice wow, it sure seems late.  And that’s when it hits.  It’s 8:00 p.m. and I need to eat before I start gnawing on my own leg.  I muster up the umph to cook myself some dinner.  Let me tell you my inner brat is screaming, just go to Chipotle and get food!  I even heard the call of McDonald’s and I can’t eat McDonald’s without getting very, very sick.  But the lazy brat in me doesn’t seem to care.  I usually shut that little bad girl up by nibbling on a 1 ounce piece of grass fed cheese while I throw dinner together.  Because believe it or not, throwing together some real food and cooking it is a lot faster than, getting in your car, driving to what ever bad for you and expensive drive through you can get to is.  

I will admit, I don’t know if I will be posting every day or every other day like I said I was going to try to.  Life is full of surprises and sometimes we all just get busy.  I am making myself take pictures of most if not all of my meals.  That is what helps keep me accountable and reminds me of what is good and not so good.  Okay, here comes the pictures of food I ate for day 5.
