March 3, 14% done with the experiment

This morning’s report is much like yesterday’s report.  My entire body is humming like my hands did yesterday.  I hope that it is from the increase in circulation, but I know that it is a sign that my body chemistry is turning from it’s reliance on easy sugary chemicals to metabolize to the more difficult fats and proteins.

This morning’s breakfast was just like yesterday’s was.  I almost forgot to make it for myself, and Karen’s timely warning was provided with not a moment to spare.  It only takes five minutes to fry an egg and warm up pulled pork…for the record.  Another three minutes to eat it all up and clean the plate.  Who on earth doesn’t have time for that?  It was a good thing I ate breakfast at home, because this morning here at the plant they are having a charity breakfast catered by Chris Cakes.  Pancakes and syrup aromas are all over the place.  Could I have resisted the temptation if I had missed my eggs this morning?  Thankfully we don’t know the answer to that question, because I was defended from that temptation by a full stomach.

Yesterday’s lunch was another garden salad with left over meatloaf crumbled into it.  There may have been trace amounts of carbs in the meatloaf, but we will not worry about such things.  The dressing was mayonnaise, just two teaspoons mixed in like salad dressing.  That really is a great dressing, and if you have not tried it, you should today.  Not Miracle Whip or it’s equivalent but Mayo.  Break time cravings were satisfied, more or less, by eating handfuls of roasted almonds.  Maybe this weekend I will get us some pecans to roast, because I think they are a better snack.

Dinner last night was a Pizza Soup that we found online.  The sauce will make a really great marinara sauce and tonight we are going to use the leftovers atop a spaghetti squash that we have just for a no carb spaghetti night.  It was REALLY a good sauce, and made a REALLY good soup.  Very hearty, very spicy, very filling.  Just what the doctor ordered.

Sleep was not as good last night as the night before.  More nite time bathroom runs as the carbs leave my system, and late night storms with heavy rain and thunder kind of kept me up.  Other than that I was once again up before the alarm (good thing since I forgot to set it).

    Wow, good info on the pizza soup. I thinking of making that tonight and using the good bone broth I made from the bone marrow bones. Another morning without coffee for me. I had lunch appointment with a friend at 54th street. I took my homemade dressing and order steamed broccoli and grilled chicken. My friend laugh at me and told the waiter I was boring because of my food choices. Yesterday, I had Jose drink water with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar before we eat our salmon with roasted fennel which by the way was delish! I noticed he did not have much indigestion. Maybe the trick here for him. All the best from the other side of Liberty.
