Daily Food Journal | Week 11 | Getting My A1C Down

Daily Food Journal | Week 11 | Getting My A1C Down

While my A1C is more important than weight loss, I couldn’t resist weighing in on Sunday.  Good news: another 2 pounds! So that makes 11 total since November. Even though I fasted on Monday, I woke up Tuesday feeling like I gained weight. My jeans …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 10 | First Progress Pictures

Daily Food Journal | Week 10 | First Progress Pictures

For the first time, I’m posting pictures of my progress. On Monday, January 27, my father turned 90 years old.  He wanted to go to Applebee’s, so we went the day before (Sunday). I seem to always forget to take pictures of my restaurant meals …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 9 | Finally Lost Weight

Daily Food Journal | Week 9 | Finally Lost Weight

I finally lost weight! It’s not a lot and I don’t care if it’s water weight; I could cry. I fasted two days in a row last week, Thursday and Friday (1/16 and 1/17). I started this journey in November and I’ve made a lot …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 8 | A Lot of Blue Cheese and Bacon

Daily Food Journal | Week 8 | A Lot of Blue Cheese and Bacon

Blue cheese got me through this week. I fasted three days, with two of those days being consecutive!  In my updates, I’ll still sometimes use the term ADF (alternate day fasting), even if it’s not alternate. To celebrate my nephew’s birthday, we had lunch at …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 7 | Getting Serious About ADF

Daily Food Journal | Week 7 | Getting Serious About ADF

I’m starting to get serious about ADF (alternate day fasting). I managed to fast three times this week.  My fasts are usually between 40-42 hours.  I’m working towards making non-fasting days OMAD days (one meal a day). One thing about ADF, you wind up eating …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 6 | OMAD With Lots of Wine

Daily Food Journal | Week 6 | OMAD With Lots of Wine

Lots of wine this week. Post holiday, it was tough to work in ADF (alternate day fasting), but I was at least able to stick with OMAD (one meal a day) most days. And lots of wine. On the 29th, I went to a party …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 5 | Christmas Dinner

Daily Food Journal | Week 5 | Christmas Dinner

I tried to make the Christmas dinner menu as keto friendly as possible.  But I know my family. Some things just weren’t going to go over well.  Like homemade cranberry sauce.  They just want the canned stuff. I had actually done a trial run of …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 4 | A Nice Salmon Fillet

Daily Food Journal | Week 4 | A Nice Salmon Fillet

I purchased a large salmon fillet and cut it in half to cook (with the skin).  For the leftover fillet, I use the flashing method to reheat. Basically, you’re taking room temperature food and reheating at a high temperature for just a few minutes. A …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 3 | My Carb Count Is Really Off

Daily Food Journal | Week 3 | My Carb Count Is Really Off

My carb count has been off pretty much this whole week. My father’s Teamsters local holds a holiday lunch for retirees every year. He can bring one guest; this was my sister’s year but she bailed and I went instead. You place your order of …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 2 | First Full Day of Fasting

Daily Food Journal | Week 2 | First Full Day of Fasting

I was eager to complete my first full day of fasting and then learn whether or not it had paid off.  Turns out it’s incredibly easy to retrieve a “hidden” scale from the back of a linen closet. I kept weighing myself and nothing changed. …more

Daily Food Journal | Week 1 | OMAD Is Not Enough

Daily Food Journal | Week 1 | OMAD Is Not Enough

OMAD (One Meal a Day) was the next stop once I decided on my keto goals. As outlined in my keto journey, after a few attempts at low carb, Atkins and keto, I had eaten my way back into prediabetes. My physical was scheduled for November …more
