Day 10: I think I can do this forever

Today’s weight loss:  0     Total weight loss: 10 pounds

Yesterday was pretty haphazard in terms of structured eating, and my normal routine.

They’re keeping dad at the hospital, in fact may be taking him to a facility to stabilize him mentally before sending him home. I know we are all a little relieved, because the stress level in two households is pretty high.

I still have a respiratory ailment, so I didn’t go visit. I also didn’t feel like eating much, but I know I should keep up the calories and fat (who would ever expect THAT statement on a diet?). I had 2 eggs fried in coconut oil with a side of bacon for breakfast, and lots of water – which will help my diet AND my illness.

Still not hungry by late afternoon, and sorely needing a nap, I grabbed some BBQ pork rinds and used them to scoop up some spinach, artichoke, parmesan dip, then softly drifted off to sleep.

Waking refreshed (in the EVENING. lol), I was pretty famished. I think I had only consumed about 4 carbs so far. I’m trying to get more fiber, so I looked to find a good source. Avocado!

Back to my trusty Ipad …I found a recipe for avocado fries. It was simple and tasty. I think my avocado was a couple days too late to end up with crispy fries, but they were easy to eat with a fork. I combined with 2 Hebrew National dogs fried in coconut oil and an arugula salad with Caesar dressing. YUM.

I finished off the night with even more fiber by slicing up 1/2 cup of strawberries to add to my whipped heavy cream dessert. Rick agreed that it was delicious.
