I know it's a little late, but today was:
B: pistachio nuts, 1 cup organic chai tea
L: went out to lunch with hubby, had wedge salad with 1/2 baked potato with veggies and butter
D: grilled chicken skewers (was duck in Mark's book, but we don't like duck), broccoli

Tomorrow morning is my weigh in with my weight loss buddy, and we'll see if this week was a success even though it hasnt been 100% clean . Trying to eat clean and lose the weight but not be obsessive about it.

Speck, I have found the electronic "stuff" creeping in too much. I'll join you in that last-hour respite. Thanks for your post.

Been working and thinking on the media fast a lot this last week. Baby steps.I have turned off everything and "fasted" about 2-3 hours most days. I have found it's more habit than anything to: turn on tv, check email, turn on radio in car, check the news feed, etc. So in my fasting time I have no tv on and have read a book, turned on classical music on the radio *studies have shown it has a soothing effect*, sat at window and watched birds at the feeder. I like it and look forward to it now and will try to keep it up. I will try to give up more computer time or at least make my time on the computer more efficient.

Menu:
B-2 banana muffins *thanks for the great recipe Dottie*, 2 cups coffee with coconut creamer
S-trail mix
L-raspberry chocolate smoothie *found my lost cocoa powder in the GREAT CUPBOARD CLEAN OUT OF 2012* and may add avocado since I still have some very ripe ones
S-TBD
D- ribeye steak, caesar salad (I usually use Martha Stewart's recipe, need to review for paleo/primal)

Will abstain from computer from 4pm this afternoon to 4pm tomorrow

Nice loss!

Can you please link to the banana muffin recipe?

I don't have a loss to post yet - just to be clear, that's due to not eating Primal, not because the program doesn't work.

Fab!!!Way to go tttt.

My computer fast on Sat/Sun did not last long. Breaking news *Whitney Houston* and a coloring sheet for Sunday school intruded. Oh well, will try another day.

Hubby brought home tulips instead of chocolate this year. Can't eat tulips. Had one terrible night--Hubby's business cell phone goes off at 1am, I sat awake till 5 But slept well last night. Love 8 hours.

B-2 banana muffins, coffee
S-trail mix
L-green smoothie with cocoa and banana
S-1/2 apple or almonds TBD
D-grilled lemon/garlic marinated chicken thighs, fantastic *pull out the stops, everything but kitchen sink* Greek salad
Dessert-none.

That should be 100%

Only 5 hours sleep last night. Sigh. Must do better tonight. Must do better tonight.. Out of melatonin, and have some on order from Amazon. Had planned a 3 mile jog today but will end up being a 2-3 mile slow walk. Will do better tomorrow. Not a total loss--browsed lots of primal/paleo sites during the wee hours...

Plan on eating 100% today:
B-2 eggs, 2 banana muffins, coffee with coconut creamer (note: have cut way, way back on eggs in last few weeks. I've gone from 3 cooked eggs several times a week to just 2 maybe 2 times a week. Cyclical, tired of them right now maybe )
S-trail mix
L-BA salad but undecided which protein to team it with or may just throw in all those artichoke hearts I didn't get to last night
S-fresh strawberries
D-lamb burgers (carrying on the Greek theme) and sweet potato fries *we had our steak/Valentine's dinner on Sunday* Not sure if I'll make Oopsies or just scoop the burger with my romaine leaves. Yummy with paleo tzatsiki (sp?) Gotta score some fresh mint somewhere.

Hope everyone has a nice and productive day!

I had 6 ripe medium sized bananas and adjusted the recipe. Made 18 muffins. Came out perfect. One note: I did use the paper muffin cups.

Starting work today on my Lenten Challenge *explained here*
2012 Lenten Challenge Goes Primal

Raining today so no jogging for mamasooze. Good day to work my challenge and try to make strides in my book for book club that I'm hosting on Saturday. Note: Stephen King is just tooooo long for a one month read. We need to vote on 300 pages or less

Menu today:
B-chia pudding in coconut/almond milk-blueberries, stevia, vanilla extract. Not bad--should have more energy than I can handle all day.
S-trail mix
L-1 cup Greek yogurt with strawberries/banana (organic) *fresh*
S-almonds
D-wild salmon, BA salad
dessert-none

Lemonade before bedtime. Got 7 hours sleep last night :jump joy:

Should be........100% for the day.

L.O.L. and hardy har har... second storm in a week. But I'm not complaining. 2011 was the year without a summer here. And 2012 has been the year without a winter.

Oh, and I should have said, I'm too lazy to go out for a run. I plan on doing some push ups and squats here soon!!

Yeah, squats going on here HAR HAR.

Just got an email on super special sale at Whole Foods for whole organic chickens- 1.99 lb. What to do, what to do. Grilling/BBQ starts soon here. Hmmm. Just may go down there and buy 5 or so. We love beer can chicken. We are high class round here. We don't use beer, we use Stella Artois in an old Miller Lite can with fresh herbs of course. Naw, we dont do that any beer with fresh herbs is fine with us.

I tried beer can chicken once. Didn't go well. What I like to do is butterfly the clucker before grilling (or roasting!). It cooks so much faster and you don't waste all that back meat like seems to happen with the bird "whole".

I can do 25 squats while brushing my teeth, and so can you!

Ok, Ok. I'm squattin'. Glad I take Triple-Flex. I do thank God and genes I have been blessed with good knees. I hardly know anyone my age that has good knees.

Had a bad night. My fault. Went to sleep too early. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Fell asleep before first commercial of "Top Chef"-one of the few TV shows I watch. AAARGGGG. Will try a nap this afternoon...a short one after a leisurely walk in the park, soakin' up the sunshine. Supposed to rain tomorrow.

Meal plan:
B-2 eggs, 2 sausage patties, coffee with coconut cream
S- trail mix-My trail mix may have to take a hike *haha* when I do my Lenten challenge--the price of pecans and walnuts is ridiculous. May have to change the recipe.
L- green smoothie with avocado and banana
S-almonds (not as expensive as the other nuts)
D- bacon/beef hamburger on oopsie roll, salad
Dessert-none

Have a good day everybody

The weekend is right around the corner.
