I was really tired today. I guess not tired physically as much as tired mentally of thinking of what to eat. I had forgotten how much batch cooking is necessary to do AIP without constantly being in the kitchen! I like to cook, so picking a few new recipes each week to try is great, but I *need* protein and veggies already cooked and ready to grab. I ran out of all my homemade soups, baked chicken, steamed veggies and baked sweet potatoes a couple days ago and it has been kind of annoying to try and throw things together on the fly. Fruit is easy, but supposed to be moderated on AIP. Protein was harder! I need to make a pork tenderloin and a steak so I have them ready to heat and eat.
AM: decaf tea, coconut milk, honey
Breakfast: bacon, avocado, a Clementine
Lunch: a few green olives, a few chunks of pineapple, a couple bites of this strawberry cream gelatin recipe I tried that just did not turn out well but I am trying to eat it anyway, a couple pieces of prosciutto
afternoon: decaf tea, coconut milk, honey, and 2 banana macaroons
Dinner: chicken thighs, cantaloupe, iced tea
After this I was so hungry that my brain was starting to call for carbs, carbs, carbs! I was in that state where you would eat just about anything. I cooked a sweet potato and had half with blueberries and coconut cream.
This is what a "winging it" day looks like. It's not ideal for me and makes me more likely to go off plan. I didn't today, but I felt the draw and I want to prevent that feeling from happening again. Tonight I am making a list of things to cook tomorrow (mainly meat and vegetable dishes), and I will take a couple hours after lunch to make them so I have grab-and-go fuel for the week!
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
