Notes

When I am “low-carbing,” I start my morning with Bulletproof coffee each day.  It makes me happy.

I ended up not following the meal plan I referenced in my last post because for one, I forgot.  See how forgetful I am? I even forgot to weigh myself this morning, so I set a reminder for tomorrow.  Secondly, I had been craving Michelle Tam’s Thai-Style Omelette from her website, Nom Nom Paleo.  It is delicious and you must try it.  One of my very best friends from California, Jen, sent this recipe to me a while ago and I absolutely love it.  It is tasty and so simple to make!

To keep track of my calories, I use the LoseIt! App and website on my Iphone.  I used to use MyFitnessPal (MFP), but LoseIt is more cost effective for me.  It’s not as prominent as MFP, but they have a pretty sizeable database that helps me keep track of nutritional information and calories similar to MFP.

Because I am constantly worried that I will somehow hurt my internal organs while low-carbing, I drink lemon or lemon-lime water often. Evidently, it helps things like balancing my body’s pH, prevent gall bladder problems (one of my fears!), kidney problems (eek!), etc., Plus there’s the added benefit of having some Vitamin C, which helps my skin stay bright and clear.

The problem I had with this Egg Fast, at least so far today, was the amount of fat I should have eaten. For each egg I consume, I am to eat at 1 tablespoon of fat.  I just couldn’t do it today.  It made me feel ill just thinking about it, so I decided to not pressure myself too much.  But, I will try better on Day 2.

As one can see, not everything I ate is pure and clean or fancy.  I’m not a purist and I like simple stuff.  It’s all good!

I am linking some items that I consumed today as a reference point for anyone who wants to check those out. I am not sponsored by any of the above-listed brands. However, I love them. So much. In addition, I do not personally know Michelle Tam.  I am merely a fan that desires to credit her recipe because it is delicious and I want everyone to try it.

Keto-flu symptoms are not so bad right now.  I’ll spare the details on that one.

Otherwise, I’m hanging in. My mood is even better than it was yesterday.

Until tomorrow!

Lots and lots and lots of love,

E.
