Congratulations Drea!  You've made the leap!

... all of you living the grain-free (& sugar free) life!

KK Here.  Day 42 in the grain free jail.

It is getting easier to stand in line at JoAnn Fabrics, and wait for what seems like forever
staring at the and my usual weakness, NECCO WAFERS of the overly stocked shelves lining the long waiting line area.

Breakfast was salmon dusted with rice flour (with fresh ground cayenne) and fried in Rice Bran Oil.  Veggies were sauteed red bell pepper, snow peas and onion.

Lewis is off to work on the car, and I'm going to work on several projects: more stockngs, and cutting out some other items to get ready to sew.

KK: step away from the necco wafers!! (in other words, good job!!)

brk: 2 eggs, inch of coffee.
lunch: 2 pattypan squash fried in ghee with almond butter sauce (just Almond B. stirred in) and 4 wellshire farms turkey sausages, which have a little sugar in them, unfortunately!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I am not perfectly sugar free today. (but hey...that's not much!)

Day 4 of no sugar! I think I'm over the hump. It's hard (and yet strengthens my resolve somehow) to see the bowl of candies we keep out for clients. But I'm determined to kick the sugar habit (again).

Oh Drea! You ARE STRONG and doing well if you can have a bowl of candy out on a daily basis and not be tempted.

I totally get that.  

It's difficult for me to have just a serving of grain.  It's one of those things that can me over to the dark side of overeating.

i'm kinda that way too, and I need to not be right now....cuz I ate something bad yesterday and I don't want it to derail me. I didn't think it would be so bad...some "healthy" (no hfcs) chocolate covered almonds......!!!!
Don't try this at home, kids! I was buzzed from the sugar in just a handful! Not sugarfree yesterday, but will be again! Hand pain kicked in again....inflammation.
I get it!
not worth it.

I'm on day 5, and thankfully, it's almost over! I have had about two teaspoons of agave in those 5 days, on day 1 and day 4, but I feel okay about that. I'm also giving up wheat and red wine, even though they are bennies. Both the wheat and the red wine make me crave more of both and sugar, too, and I just make bad choices.

It was hard being around all the Halloween candy all the stores have on display. I went looking for buttons for the cardigan I just finished knitting...found some, but they weren't my first choice...none of the stores I went to had 7 of any of the choices I picked. Ugh.

KK here, Day 44 grain free.  Breakfast was turkey patties and green beans.  

It was more like a lunch since we got started on our walk so late and then fixed a meal so late. I'm determined not to have that happen again tomorrow.  I told Lewis, I'm leaving the house at 7:30 am with or without you. I will not wait again for him to get his act together. I still am stuck with that 5lb weight loss.  

So this morning, I really pushed and we went up into the hills for our morning walk.

I have not walked the hills for at least a couple years.  I did the low hill instead of the very steep hard hill.  Did not get the sweat I wanted, but a little sweat is better than no sweat.

Lewis and I are both dealing with some intermittent knee pain, so we may not do the steep hill for some time.  If I feel good tomorrow morning, I'll do the low hill again.

The steep and low hills are something I used to do on a daily basis before I got married... oh so many years ago.  It was 10 years ago on about Oct 30th or so, that I joined the first BTD message board.  My how time flies.

The rest of the day we drove around soliciting for new clients. We're pooped.  Dinner will be lamb patties and onion and red bell pepper.   Maybe a good with some salts will do the trick tonight.

I love this little walking dumpling.  We all have felt that way at times!  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

dinner tonite was a delicious pot roast with hannah sweet potatoes, rutabagas, carrots, celery, onions.
I dusted the meat in tapioca flour, and browned it in ghee before braising it in wine.
Now I'm into the almond butter on a spoon.....

  Hello... maybe once you have really kicked the sugar these will bolt back into play? I don't really get why anyone would give bennies up?

  But this trap shall remain: thoses bennies will always generate a craving for sugar.... also after you have kicked the sugar...    The best solution is the rich superfood live foods 3 x daily parties/celebrations, after which you'll forget about sugar - for the day. It's a lot for me.

KK here, Day 48 grain-free.

Breakfast was patties dusted in rice flour cooked with red bell and white .

We got out the door very early for our trek this morning.  Although we kept to the very low inclines, we felt like burnt by the time we got back home.

Hoping when I get on the at the end of the week, I see some change.

As we are all individuals, there may be differences on our bodies that have not been accounted for in the books, or possibly even SWAMI...  The books are definitely a great starting point, but if you notice that certain foods don't sit well or trigger excess demands for other foods, or other undesirable symptoms, why not remove them - at least temporarily, to stabilize again.

I may or may not add in wheat and red wine some time in the future, but until I really "know" I have a handle on being sugar-free, why tempt myself? Besides, I'm only in 6 out of 30 days. At the very least, I should lose some of the extra pounds I've been carrying around for a couple of months.

I think keeping track of our exercise helps us stay focused on the goal, but at the same time staying in the present via the journey.

I'm so proud of myself! Day 7: coffee with cocoa powder, soy milk, home made trail mix, and apple, roasted/tamari almonds, romaine lettuce with red onions, cucumbers and feta cheese (no dressing), lemon/sea salt water. I was in town, tempted by smells, and didn't cave! I got a lot of support, from the woman who dyes my eyelashes on my food/beverage choices, which empowered me.

My truck was indeed ready, picked it up without hassle, and the insurance company (not mine) pays for it all. Total bill including three weeks of rental car: $5400. Whew!

Good job on the choices...  Glad your truck was ready as stated...  Goodness, I'm glad that didn't have to come out of your pocket!
