Good, eh?

Next time, add sea salt. (almost as good as Lindt dark choc w/sea salt)  A nice kick.

I've been thinking about adding a touch of ground japano chilies for a real to see if it tastes like the Lindt w/chile.


Both suggestions sound great! I don't think I'll make it again soon, though; a little went a long way. Cured any craving for chocolate.

well, today started with an unusual brkfst: one grassfed beef hot dog, sliced vertically and cooked in a pan with butter, onion, spinach, mushrooms, and manchego cheese. (out of eggs)....yum.
Now I need  to plan my Christmas Eve dinner (for kids and grandkids)......
it might be tri-tip roast, but I would certainly need two big tri tips....or....rolled sirloin roast....and the sides will be pretty easy. Then the dessert....grainfree of course.

With all the disasters I'm dealing with today... Major problems with the White Whale Work Truck and our 8x16' canopy totally collapsed in the rain storm and the table under it turned over with a mess of work parts/tools & junk in huge wet mess.

I got all that cleaned up and ready to step in the shower when I thought I might

Y'all do realize, this is just a drop in the bucket.

Many more pounds to go...

I guess I should look back and see how long it took from the first 10 to this last 10...

So,  
Nov 8th (first 10 lbs) to
Dec 19th (second 10 lbs). 42 days.

ETA: That's almost .25 lbs a day.

Let's hope I can make the next 10 go a wee bit faster, like in 32 days or around that.

The bucket wouldn't ever get full if the first drop didn't go in...   Keep up the good work...

If you go to the butcher and pick up 20 pounds of fat,
well . . . that's a heavy lump of jiggles, that you aren't carrying around anymore!

All I have to do is pick up a 3 gallon jug of water.  That's about equal...

Quite a gift you have given to your joints, KK.

For the most part, joints are better.  Low back still does get stressed out and screams at me from time to time, but overall, much better.

I still have a tiny bit of acid reflux when I eat.  That hasn't been solved yet.

ETA: I also think the next 10-15 will really be telling. I think that's when I will really notice some changes.

I shopped so many stores today.  Had to go out in the rain, and let me tell you, Southern Californian's do NOT know how to deal with rain!  Especially rain that has lasted this long.  I can't remember the last time we've had rain like this, going on for days and days and days.

I hit the bank, then Jons, Valley Produce, Trader Joes, Costco & 99 Ranch.  I was too wiped out to fight for a parking spot at Tar-jay.  Maybe tomorrow.

I got lots of goodies.

Iranian pumpkin seeds.  These are the best pumpkin seeds, along with their cousins, Lady Nails
Red & Green Bell Peppers
Zuchinni
White Onions (the only onion to eat imho)
Ground Turkey
Lamb Chops
Frozen pineapple bits
Frozen Okra
1 sm pkg of dried mango (Lewis really loves this)
Organic Walnuts
Free Range Jumbo Brown Eggs
Raw Pecans
Egypt Seeds (haven't tried these before; unknown = neutral)
Roasted Almonds
Raw Almonds
Turkish Figs (for Lewis)
Shazari Figs (for me; very small package)
Lemons
Paper Towels
Cat Litter (2 30lb containers...carried both from the car to the house at the same time and I can tell I need to start carrying some light weights when I walk)

And the most important,

So, plenty of good snacks in the house.
They didn't have any yellowtail fish in at 99 Ranch.  That was a bummer.

I wish that storm would come East (well, at least to New Mexico). We had two days of snow, but that's all melted now. Probably not going to be a white Christmas. It's probably just as well, as it's harder to walk dogs in the snow (and keep them clean and dry). We are full at the kennel.

I'm going grocery shopping today. Thanks for some food ideas, KK!

Drea, do you have to travel far to shop? I picture you in a very small town or community...could just be my imagination...and I like the image.

Kk, I see how closely you stick to the guidelines and am impressed.

I still need to shop!! Veggies!!
Also I need to do so many things...like paint the bathroom before family comes on Christmas Eve.
Admittedly, it may not happen, but here's hoping...

PAINTING!!! I so need to repaint my house, inside.  Haven't done that since I moved in, in 1997! We won't even talk about the outside, lol! Won't happen until spring, if at all.

jayneeo, I just don't bring it into the house.  A few things that Lewis eats but not me...like the Trader Joes low sodium red pepper and tomato soup (in a carton), and the figs he likes.  Mostly I've been snacking on frozen fruit.  I've got to up my vegetables, but frozen fruit is SO CONVENIENT!

I have to drive to Santa Fe (25 miles one way) to shop. Yes, there are groceries to be had in Espanola, but not anything I would eat . Still wheat and sugar free, although I've been eating a little too much agave the last few days. I'm still shooting for the first of the year, then after that I'll just be avoiding sugar. Wheat is actually a beneficial for me (in the whole grain form), so I'll probably indulge a little. Mostly, I was going for how long I could hold out. I have great will power.
