@Shinita, your spiced wine sounds nice. I am not a fan of champagne either. But like you I don’t like a sweet drink either so I would not be having anything spiced up that was on that too sweet side also!
Girllllll, you do look so posh in that dress and very pretty pic.
nice long night for ya but sorry that flip switched on you but you are finding your limitations and seem to be doing better longer kinda?
@Azi, doing so well Azi and I am super happy ya found that sweet spot you needed!! You sound very well nourished on your intake and your fatty coffee is keeping your body fueled well so it seems you found your way cool.
Love that pic of your hubby’s truck. That seems like a newer rig, very nice color too. I am a ‘truck person’ being the farmer type I am I gravitate towards big vehicles with big power…lol…
wonderful to read your post and your great results. Just let carnivore do its’ thing…how right you are on that one! This is now a whole new you coming into a shiney new year!
Ahhhh sending condolences FB! Yes our bodies are gonna betray all of us at some point for sure. Life marches over us at its pace and we do lose that control in the end totally. Sad times.
You are sure hitting your ZC Zen and I just love reading that. Your focus is off the ‘dieting change me must tackle food as an enemy to be beaten every single day, every meal’ and you are into ‘life focus’ now cause your body is so nourished. You got a big life to lead. Your ZC life will fuel it totally and then you can go up and beyond our darn ol’ ‘crazy azz dieting’ days. You seem there, very happy for you!!
Very happy to hear you can call and get a consult. Yea that kinda thing ‘needs a fixin’ or it is gonna just hang around and bother ya and can go into a worse scenario. I feel for ya. anything medical is just a noose we all have to tackle. handle this troublesome thing and hopefully you come out a new you and better you and a feel good you Hope all goes well moving forward on it.
for me on the lbs. When I lost 70lbs on ‘restricted starve me lc’ I felt fab. Hit size 10. Where I used to be. I ‘felt the body’ and ‘was in tune’ ya know. So I kinda gear life on that in a way. So I lost like 55lbs now of that 70 I lost quite a few times after regaining and losing…omg lol…and now it is like I am in a 12-14 depending on what I buy but my tiny ol’ stupid brain still wants that 10-12 range. Where I just thought for this ol’ broad I was in a very trim and very much more happy ‘mirror place’ for myself. Yes this is a vanity thing truly but as I age, yea I don’t know if I can get the 15 more off, and if I do…does it ‘really’ matter and key being I swear if I just keep eating zc and lose 5 lbs a year, hey in 3 years I hit what I want anyway LOL But I don’t want no stick thin and won’t ever be that cause older I get I do want some meat on my bones in case I do gotta fight an medical illness I kinda wanna have that backup to waste away a bit before getting too bad ya know, like a backup fighting force on me to not waste away…well, ya know this is just crazy me who thinks like this but I kinda wanna be ‘in the right place’ for just in case but darn I got many nice clothing items from my size 10 range I would like to wear. But funny thing is my kiddo says OMG Mom just go out and buy new nice stuff now and stop wanting to fit into vintage stuff…my stuff in my closet is vintage to her now HAHA
So this is a if it goes down it goes down.
See at this point I can’t ‘zc diet’ or monkey too much. I am always on a slippery slope. So if I ‘do too much’ and ‘tweak’ too much I get very off balance. I get very ‘dieting’ mode and that is not a place I should be…I fail on that. I love that zc just feeds me well, I thrive, I feel I eat exactly how I should every day, never gain on anything I do eat in my day ever so I ain’t rockin’ that boat so I think I will just wait a few years and see if the darn 15 melt off in its own time Hey I think I worked a plan just for me now
I am like you in your statements that zc too me off the crazy dieting nightmare which isn’t sustainable for me mentally. zc is freeing and will, if we hold and wait and continue, to change us to the better! ZC was a miracle baby for me truly.
------------------------great sunny day finally at the beach…weeee…
maybe 4-5 miles on the beach. metal detecting. top finds. 16 cents.
alot of trash. I tell ya I cleaned the beach up nice yesterday from alot of buried beer cans and pull tabs. but in all that time out there I also sat in my chair and soaked up the rays and drank in the salt air. OMGosh the salt air and my sinus love each other. I am not clogged like at home inland. I feel lighter in the head truly. Oh yea coastal is gonna be my full on retirement, not a doubt on that.
So hubby drags me out to eat again. I wanted just burgers in the rv but he said nope, I want out and I said then I insist steakhouse. Price. shoot me but in the end. Kiddo wanted nothing. She is in not hungry type mode ‘cause snacking’ on the crap in the rv too much. ugh.
THE BEST 8 OZ FILET MIGNON I had in a long time. WOWZA. I said medium rare, rare, rare and it was cooked to exactly and I mean exacly where I wanted it…so rare but not blood raw and the flavor of this steak was stellar.
had a mushroom. yes I did. 1 mshroom and it was good HAHA
the filet came with mushroom cream sauce and it was delish but I gave the big ol’ nice mushrooms to hubby and ate 1 and used a bit of the cream sauce. I was in heaven truly per bite.
but get this and eating out is just crazy in my brain for a zc’er alot of times. been thru this alot.
drinks…water for me. hubby got sweet tea.
bread first: got 2 warm delish cornbread muffins and 2 big whipped butter balls. I took the butter balls for later, yes I did. Hubby ate both cornbread muffins.
appetizer: smoked pork belly!! Bacon bourbon jam sauce ON SIDE. did not come that way. came on it, hubby loved it. almost sent it back but I thought, nah he likes it, leave it. I took one tiny taste and omg the sugar in it floored me. Hubby ate all of it and I ate none.
soup or salad. NONE (hubby got tomatoe basil soup) he loved it.
sides with meal: NONE (hubby got baked tater, subbed for mac n’ cheese with bacon for veggies they offered.
I ate my whole steak. Done deal. Hubby ate 1/2 steak. Bit of tater and none of the mac n cheese cause he was full from tomatoe soup and sugar laden pork belly and 2 cornbread muffins.
I wanted his steak truly but he A1 sauce’d that sucker and I hate A1.
he did ‘doggie bag’ it back to the rv and he might eat later, who knows.
All I know from my tiny brain is I paid $49. plus tax for a 8 oz filet mignon. I KNOW I can buy it SO much cheaper and cook myself ugh but we had a good time and hubby enjoyed it but my wallet screamed but hey, I AM ON VACATION right?
oh those whipped butter balls I got, I chunked it out and put on my meat as I ate it. both butter balls disappeared easily…omg so good
told hubby wallet needs break. burgers and pork loin in rv and ‘they can eat up the leftover’ pizza they got in fridge, the leftover food for hubby and some leftover ‘japanese’ crap kiddo got when we went out. But my food covered, they will scrounge, but it is a good scrounge for them I guess.
big sun today. out to metal detect in a bit.
zc strong all. early days in new year but we all got this!!
