Day 128: Fat Bombs


http://www.amazon.com/Ketogenic-Diet-Delicious-Recipes-Quick-Cookbook-ebook/dp/B014G1YGUS/ref=sr_1_1_twi_kin_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1442261856&sr=8-1&keywords=fat+bomb+recipes



Today I made fat bombs.  I got the recipe from one of my Kindle books, called "Fat Bomb Recipes" by Sara Givens.  Today's fat bomb consists of little morsels of coconut butter, unsweetened coconut, cream cheese, with a chocolate cream cheese glaze, topped with walnuts. The idea is to keep your body in a state of ketosis, which is burning stored fat.  These little bites keep you feeling satisfied and less prone to binging on simple carbs. I am packing a couple with my lunch.

I am finding I need to make more time for exercise. I went to bed early last night with my book, but stayed up late, having a hard time putting it down. Hence, I kept hitting the snooze this morning.

I had a  nice breakfast - a leftover mushroom/spinach frittata, turkey bacon and tea.

Then I made my fat bombs and stir fried some cabbage and onions. My lunch today is sweet potatoes, spinach, shredded chicken, carrots, red peppers, cabbage and a fat bomb.  Yum! :)  I actually prefer my lunches to almost anything I can buy in a restaurant. The feeling of self sufficiency, accomplishment, and discipline far outweigh the instant gratification and gluttonous joy of restaurant eating.

So I am wearing my sneakers today and will get my walking in on my piano student route. Today I am all over the place. First North Portland, then the Hawthorne neighborhood, and then Woodstock area and home.

The kids all went hunting for the week. So it will be just Honey Dog and I. I'm ok with that. I like the quiet, but of course I will be praying like Mother Theresa that my kids all make it home safely! :)

Here are today's stats and then I must run out the door! (Good thing I'm wearing my running shoes!)
It looks like I stayed the same from last week. Really need to up the exercise!

Happy Monday!  :)

Year Three, Day 236: Memories of Food

Well, I ALMOST got on the treadmill today!

I planned on it. I actually had a very productive morning. I woke up super early, but it was cold and I knew I would be exhausted if I actually got vertical at 4:47 a.m. So I stayed in bed and checked emails, and played a few games of Words with Friends.

I drifted off again, and finally got out of bed at 9:30.  I did my prayer, journaling, bible study and reading from my Joyce Meyer Book. (The Mind Connection). I have only one more chapter to read and I am finished with the book! At which point, I plan on going back to the beginning and rereading the whole thing. It is that good!

I did my morning hoop. It was a crisp, cold morning, but no wind. I had a good workout. Then I practiced a bit of piano and did some piano lesson planning for my students.

I had planned on grabbing a quick lunch and then hopping on the Max to the gym where I would hop on the treadmill, hop in the jacuzzi and then grab a quick shower before my students.

The bus that g…

Year Three, Day 261: The Belligerent Man, The Bus Driver, and the Woman in a Poncho

I just had a most entertaining bus ride!

I had just gotten of the Max at the Hollywood Transit Center. I was coming down the steps, when I saw the #75 to Milwaukie entering the parking lot. That was my transfer bus!  I didn't want to miss it, because at this time of day, it might be a 20 minute wait until the next one.

I had just come from a lovely sushi lunch with  my daughter and Baby Gracie at Cascades Station.

The plan was for me to teach my piano students and then return to Vancouver tonight. My daughter has much work to do at home and we all know that working at home with a 5 month old baby is a bit of an oxymoron!

Anyway, I hurried down the stairs, being very mindful. The steps were slippery in the Portland drizzle. Slipping and falling would kind of put a cramp in my day.

I slowed down when I noticed there was a long line of passengers waiting to board. At the end of the line was an older, distinguished looking gentleman.  He was wearing a long overcoat and hat.  He nodded…

Year Four, Day 31: Sleep Business

I did it! I survived my sleep study.
It was quite intense. I think my expectations were a bit skewed. I was envisioning more like a mini retreat.  
It was all business. Sleep business.
And the minute the lights went out and the door shut behind the sleep technician as she whispered, "good night", I went into full panic mode.
Luckily I was really tired.  She had asked if I wanted to watch a bit of television before I fell asleep. But I declined. I knew to take advantage of the heavy lidded, dull brained feeling I had when I was really sleepy. Television might wake up my brain.
As she was attaching my electrodes, I watched a show on Animal Planet called "Lone Star Law", about Texas game wardens. I was hooked!  It was fascinating. I rarely watch tv, and we don't have cable at home, thankfully.  But this show drew me in. In retrospect, I should have continued to watch it until I fell asleep.
Something about being hooked up, tucked in, lights off, door closing, fel…
