Day 12 2015 IMW Spring Challenge

"I always skate to where the puck is going, not where it's been"---- Wayne Gretsky

Way back, when I first discovered the lower carbohydrate lifestyle, I had some issues controlling my appetite. I got tired of eating eggs for breakfast and wanted some variety. Then I found protein shakes. My first shake was very yummy but a bit too sweet which instead of decreasing my appetite, did the opposite. So I almost gave up on shakes. Then I began making a protein shake with whey protein, whole fat homemade yogurt, blueberries and whatever supplements I was taking at the time. What I discovered was that...

Day 6

"All I ask of food is that it doesn't harm me."---Michael Palin

I will take this advice.

So we are now at Day 6. The first five days may be testing your resolve, but is not that what a challenge is all about? A challenge is supposed to take you away from your comfort zone.

If your comfort zone is carrying 25 extra pounds with high blood pressure or higher sugars, well, I ask is that really comfort?

Exercised for 10 minutes this morning. Non-stop mostly legs with a small amount...

But others have come in and stated that while the shake was tasty, and they were using it at...

Wheat wheats effects on me me!!

Wheat wheat effects on me me? I woke up achy the morning I wrote this. This is unusual for me. I also had a more difficult time falling asleep. As I was driving my daughter to school, trying not to ADD and forget where I was going, I was trying to figure out why I was achy and did not sleep well. Then it hit me!! Like a ton of cous cous. I made a new chicken dish the other night. It was a recipe called Chicken Tangine.  BTW, I omitted the flour from the recipe. It was very...
