Woo hoo! Now, if I can only curb the after dinner cravings for some rainbow sherbet or chocolate! :) We'll see. I might be eating more grapes tonight, so that will put my carb count over for the day.

HORRIBLE migraine this evening. Had it lingering all afternoon and it hit hard after the hot wings.

I want to get my protein and fat a little higher and my carbs a little lower, but progress. Bad eating today due to two appts. that threw me off schedule.

It's a new year and hopefully I'll get back to blogging more regularly soon. I'm finally feeling up to eating real foods again and I am getting back into paleo (for the most part, but I still plan to eat dairy). I'm not going to worry about zone right now, just trying to focus on eating good, quality food (it'll be a work in progress to start out).

B - 3 eggs (scrambled w/heavy cream), 8oz. sweet tea
S - 8oz. sweet tea, 15 almonds, 1/8 of an apple (I think it's going bad, so stopped eating it)
L - 4oz. salmon, 1c. collard greens (chicken broth, garlic, red pepper flakes)
S - 1 mozzarella cheese stick, 1 popsicle (NOT paleo, but I gotta finish off the box), 20oz. fanta (tsk tsk tsk)
D - 1 stalk celery w/cream cheese, 1 chicken breast (3-4oz.), 1c. couscous w/parmesan
S - 8 oz. orange juice

Carbs = 383g
Protein = 94g
Fat = 60g
Calories = 1,804

WOW, I am WAY over on my carbs and way low on my fat. But at least it's a place to start again.
