I said earlier that I have today and probably tomorrow before I am done with my hCG, so I will record my Last Dose Weight on Friday, which will also be the first 500 cal/no hCG day (got to do that for 72 hours).
It looks like Monday I will be starting P3/Paleo/LRx and I am looking forward to my Big Ass Breakfast (BAB).
I want zucchini in butter. I want avocados. I want eggs and bacon. I want to eat the wonderful (but unappreciated) meals that I have been fixing for the carbcrunchers!
I am lucky, I don't crave the bread-y stuff anymore. Although, some of the pseudo Paleo goodies look good, I can do without. No sense in tempting the "evil within".
As I have said before, I will still be posting. Losing weight was just the beginning of my journey. I am still striving for health, which also means getting stronger.
Hippocrates said: "Let your food be your medicine", and I am taking that to heart. Filling my body with garbage is a total deal breaker. I (or anyone else) can't be healthy if I am stuffing my face with GMO laden fake foods. Grains are literally for the birds (they have the stomachs to break them down). I am going to continue with the healthiest foods that I can find. Even the Colonel is climbing on board about grass fed/finished beef, pastured pork and chicken, even though they are so expensive. Since we are both planning to quit smoking that will save us up to $300/month!
At tax time, we are planning an add on to the house for the in-laws, and to free up space (plus adding another bathroom. One bathroom and 7 people is pretty hard). But, we will be saving for 1/2 a cow, we have to put our order in by February for the early summer slaughter. So, that is going to be expensive, but on the other hand, can we really put a price on our health?
So far, that's what's going on, of course life happens when you make plans...so a lot of it is on a "we'll see" basis!
