Carnivore, Day 9

Status: What Hump? If there was a hump, I'M OVER IT BABY!!! I feel so great, I can barely contain myself. Stepping on the scale yesterday morning was a pleasant surprise. I decided to say, "To heck with tracking how much I eat," and I think it paid off. Yesterday was awesome! I ate a …

Carnivore, Day 8

Status: Happy Day! Well, my status on Day 7 was, "Yawn-Tired and Hungry." The morning totally didn't pan out that way though. I took a ten minute or so power nap after publishing that morning's post, and after I got up from my nap I felt like a million bucks! I was hungry so breakfast …

Carnivore, Day 7

Status: yawn—tired and hungry. I was tired getting up yesterday morning. Probably because I was up a little after 5 am. I am a morning person—but only when I'm ready to start the morning. Since I was up so early, and didn't sleep like a rock the night before last, I yawned a lot. Other …

Carnivore, Day 6

Status: Pure Awesome. Yesterday morning was really great. Got up, got ready, and went to church. My mood was wonderful. Rested, joyful, the perfect way to head in to hearing and absorbing God's word. My Pastor's sermon was great. I took a lot of notes. The subject was God's vision and the focus was on …

Carnivore, Day 5

Status: game day. Yesterday morning was rough. I hadn't had a bowel movement in 24 hours and when I finally did, I was totally underwhelmed. Twice. Once, first thing in the morning, and again in the afternoon before lunch. I guess it's good that I didn't have any issues with diarrhea, but I'm concerned that …

Carnivore, Day 4

Status: Just Okay Yesterday morning was great. Woke up sleepy in the pitch dark at 6 am, but happy just the same. The morning went well, made breakfast for the kids and myself and got out the door. As the morning went on though, I just started to feel weak. Not myself. I work on …

Carnivore, Day 3

Status: Ready to go! Yesterday morning went really well. I didn't feel that wonderful as soon as I woke up. The first day back in any grind isn't a trip anyone likes to take... I don't think anyway. But, once I got up, all was well. No headache or other issues. Plenty of energy to …

Carnivore, Day 2

Status: “Meh,” confounding factors at play. Late yesterday morning was great. The headache from the night prior was gone and as I was walking down the stairs I saw my husband pull the truck onto the patio to unload fire wood. None of the boys were around and my husband parked the truck and disappeared. …

Carnivore, Day 1

Current Status: I feel absolutely FANTASTIC! Alert and ready to start the day. It's Wednesday morning. I kicked off with eating carnivore on Monday evening. My husband and I had a night alone, so we went out for a nice steak dinner. It was wonderful. However, I felt like absolute garbage yesterday! I woke up …

Carnivore Countdown

Current Status: Carnivore is pretty much the ultimate elimination diet. I've never been able to stick to an elimination diet before, even though I've had some pretty great motivators, but I feel the need to try again because I still have some things I think it might help (details below). What I'll be sharing will …
