Big Ass Salad:IMG_5275.thumb.JPG.6adf93788eea71614b711bb3fd31f511.JPG

salad Totals: 166 cals; 8g protein; 9g fat; 14g carbs; 4g fiber; 10g net carbs. (I wasn't concerned about not having 1 g of Protein for every 10 calories in this meal cuz I was already gonna be plenty high in the Protein department from all the other meals during the day.) And I see I forgot arugula! BBIAF. Corrected!

Are you effing kidding me. That Big Ass Salad is the stuff my dreams are made of.

And it looks so restaurant-y 🤤

Are you getting your Water in?

btw...I am totally addicted to the cayenne in my coffee now (as I type here I've got a 20oz-er that I am nursing, LOL)...I also find that the cayenne seems to hold hunger/cravings/whatever at bay...but it may just be a coincidence, will monitor for the next couple days and see if there really is a connection...

Add a squeeze of lemon to that, and a bag each of green tea and Earl Grey + a shot of ACV and you have MY favorite morning drink.

oh, and @FluffyChix: I did some experimenting with the ingredients you mentioned yesterday (sorry if my nerd is showing...)

NOTES: I didn't have any lemon, but I did have lime.

RESULTS:

  • Made one with coffee w/ stevia, lime, earl grey, green tea & ACV + cayennne...did not like it. I think because of the lime. I couldn't taste any Green Tea nor ACV.
  • Ditched the lime, upped the ACV...can taste the ACV now, but did not like it. Still could not taste the green tea
  • Ditched the ACV & the green tea...YUMMMMMMM.
  • Mr. said "add some Tumeric, it's good for you". Didn't change the taste but keeping in there cuz its good for me, LOL.

CONCLUSION:

  • My new fave drink is now: 20 oz Coffee + 1/8 tsp stevia + Earl grey teabag + 1/8 tsp Cayenne + optional 3/4 tsp Tumeric
  • When I get some lemon I'll do a couple more experiments.
  • Also thinking on days I need some extra cals and fats, I can put in some coconut milk.

I am getting aprox 80 oz of liquid in a day. I think my hunger was from the change in diet and my body getting used to low carb. I'm hoping if I keep it up a couple more days it will get easier. I'm down to 180.6 lbs this morning from 184.6 sunday morning!!!! So thankfully I'm seeing some results from my hard work.

Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 114.9 lbs

----------------------------------------
3.5 hour lunch date with BFF yesterday. We went to a Chinese restaurant and then to a tea and dessert place. We shared a shaved ice dessert that was topped with sweet stuff and condensed milk (see the pic below...it's not the one we actually ate, because I forgot to take a pic, but its from the restaurants website). Anyhoo as you can see it is sugar overload. I had about maybe a 1.5 cups of it total and surprise, surprise, I got me some runs later on. Though it was actually kinda welcome cuz I hadn't pooped in about 3 days. So (TMI ALERT)....

...after I got to pass that "plug" (omg, I thought I was giving birth again) it was all watery nastiness after that. Sorry for the graphics. Then of course, I was hungry afterwards!

On another note, I went for a run this AM with Mr. and he got me to do some sprinting intervals, and I think I'm going to be sore tomorrow.
----------------------------------------

9:30am - Coffee-Tea-Cayenne w/ stevia

11:00am to 3:00pm - 3 oz crispy skin chicken dark meat + 1/2 cup braised eggplant & ground pork + 1 king oyster mushroom and 1 broccoli floret + 1 tbsp Sriracha + 1 tbsp hot chili oil + 1.5 cups mixed fruit tea + 1.5 cups shaved ice dessert (see below)

7:00pm - salad w/ vinaigrette + 1 slice bacon + 1/2 fl oz pumpkin seeds + 1/2 tbsp grated parm cheese + 3 oz meatloaf w/ Keto ketchup glaze + 2 oz grilled chicken + 1.5 oz chicharron

10:00pm - 1/2 cup cottage cheese + 1/2 oz pumpkin seeds + 2 oz blueberries + 2 tbsp dried cranberries

----------------------------------------

Totals: 1608 cals - 117g Protein - 79g NET carbs - 102g fat

----------------------------------------

Yesterdays Dessert (for reference), though ours didn't have the orange chunks nor the ice cream, but it did also have peanuts and crunchy oats. I ate less than 1/4 of it. It was HUGE. Plus we were chatting away so it melted and lost its appeal, lol.

Good point. A couple more days of low carb and the cravings will go away (that is my experience too).

4 lbs in less than a week!!!! YESS!!!!!

I love it when people far out like you can make the decision and reign it in, cuz its totally doable. ❤️

Speaking of learning something new, [mention=374036]chayarg[/mention],you have inspired my latest fave drink!
I tried the cayenne in cold Water yesterday --> it didn't mix in very well and I accidentally drank some clumpy fire bombs of powder that I needed to down some milk to put out.
Then an hour or so later (I needed to recover!) I put some in hot water, it was ok, but nothing I would be interested in re-creating.
Then this morning, I was having my coffee w/ stevia in it and thought hey, this could use some kick, and voila! My new fave drink was born.
[emoji4]

Just added cayenne into my coffee and it is awesome!!! Cant believe I never thought of trying it. Thanks for the idea.

Yesterday, Friday, Dec. 13
Maintenance : 5'2" / 1yr PO Sleeve / 115.3 lbs

----------------------------------------
Didn't eat much during the day yesterday...was picking at a Ginormous salad all afternoon, but by dinnertime what was left was too soggy to be appetizing, so I tossed it (SACRILEGE!!). Went out with Mr, BFF and Mr.BFF last night to a dive bar that was having a Kareoke night, and got myself good and toasted for a swing at the mic. Then they had probs with the sound system so I was NOT able to belt out my rendition of Titanium. Bummed! So we played drunk tipsy pool instead. Good Times. Well, at least it was until I had the bright idea of ordering a round of B-52 shots and a slice of warm apple pie with ice cream because I saw a waitress walk by with a tray of it for the group beside us. It was not pretty 45 mins later.

To add insult to injury, I didn't go for a run for a pick-me-up this morning as its raining :(. If I can get my lazy ass to the gym later, I'll get a run in on the treadmill.

P.S. I just asked Mr. what he thought about buying a treadmill, and he's all "NO, come on let's go to the gym" 🙄
----------------------------------------

9:30am - Coffee-Tea-Cayenne w/ stevia

12:00pm to 6:00pm - about 1/2 in total of my Ginormous Salad which originally consisted of: salad w/ vinaigrette + carrots + cucumber + 1 avocado + 3 oz pan fried chicken

9:00pm to 2:00am -

  • 4 buffalo chicken wings w/ 2 tbsp blue cheese dip & 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • 4 carrot spears
  • 1/2 skewer pork souvlaki w/ 2 tbsp tzatziki
  • 2 onion rings
  • 2 gin and sodas w/ extra lime
  • 2 tequila shots
  • 1/2 slice warm apple pie w/ 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 1 B-52 shot

Sorry you didn't like the ACV. It's an acquired taste I guess! LOL. I like it cuz it's "supposed" to help your gut biome. Dunno bout that, but I do it and feel pretty good!

I did try your cayenne in the coffee! It's delish and does have an appetite killing effect on me as well! I like adding it with ground cinnamon (to lower insulin). And it's the bomb dot com adding an ounce of chocolate premier protein! Kinda like Mexican hot chocolate!

Thanks for doing the R&D on it and coming up with some cool ideas!!! Will have to try the Earl Grey with the coffee!

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
