  1. Still here and still going strong. I love crispy meat and have these frequently. I wanted to share in case anyone hasn't been blessed enough to try these yet. (Also works with arrowroot flour if you can't find potato starch.) I'm doing ok with food. I'm horrible at following the template but as long as I feel good I'm ok with that. I've really been focusing on exercise and completed a 12 mile, 4343 foot elevation gain hike on Saturday with nothing but crispy steak and two eggs in my belly. No snacks and n
  2. This is one of my favorite meals and what I had for dinner last night: I don't cut my potatoes like hearts. I use my mandolin slicer and make them like cottage fries. I use the Tree Line Herb & Garlic soft cheese. I like it in this dish but it is nowhere good enough to make me spiral and eat a block of cheese (which I've done a few times in my life). I tried a bite of it alone one time and it wasn't great so I feel ok using it in this recipe. No cheese or dairy cravings today so I'm good. I feel g
  3. I'm still here and still kicking. Typing everything in started to feel like a chore. I'm lazy I guess.
  4. Last night dinner - I was tired after my exercise so I made a simple burger patty and ate some canned green beans. Very boring but did the trick. Movement - four mile run/walk (mile run/mile walk/mile run/mile walk) I was tired most of the day yesterday due to lack of sleep Tuesday night. I forced myself to go to the Greenway for my run/walk. I got it done but crashed as soon as I got home. My anti-depressant is great but it makes me tired and also gives me insomnia sometimes. That's a horrible combination and I feel for anyone who has to deal with it on a regular basis.
  5. @ShadowInTheKitchen I will and glad you liked the hash! I've always appreciated when people shared recipes so I plan on doing the same. I love to cook but am not creative so I typically have to have a recipe to follow.
  6. Day 2, Take 2 - May 27 Breakfast - two eggs and leftover sweet potato/pineapple hash; coffee with Nut Pods Lunch - steamed potatoes with salt & pepper, two hard boiled eggs, romaine and cherry tomatoes with Brianna's Real French Vinaigrette I got a little shaky before lunch today. I can really tell a difference if I don't have my crispy steak or some type of meat at breakfast. I know I should probably be eating three eggs if it's my only source of protein but I just can't do it. I put that I ate three for lunch yesterday but I was typing as I was eating and couldn't finish
  7. @ShadowInTheKitchen Here’s the original recipe: I buy really cheap cuts of steak. The really thin, flat ones that are like 8 for $6.00 or the ones that are already cut for stir fry. Don’t waste expensive steak on it. I miss my gym too. I love working out and being active. I’ve been telling myself for a couple of months that I would work out at home and just now made myself start doing it. I started running again a couple of weeks ago and caught sight of my triceps jiggling. That was enough to convince me. @Schrod
  8. Dinner - bacon and apple smothered pork chops and green beans Movement 2 mile walk/run home workout - squats, pushups, planks, crunches and several arm exercises (Momma has bat wings!) I felt good again today. Very energized and determined. I bought a lot of new shorts in my normal size that I can’t wear right now. I did my home workout while wearing a pair of them and a sport bra. Nothing gets you motivated like a bunch of flesh flapping about. I apologize for that visual but I didn’t upload a pic
  9. I love it! It came from a steak and broccoli recipe. When I went to make it, the broccoli was rotten so I just ate the crispy steak. I’ve had it every day since then. Day 1, Take 2 is so far so good. I hope your Day 3 (?) is going good. I’m going to catch up on everyone shortly.
  10. Day 1, Take 2 - May 26 Breakfast - two eggs, crispy steak and cinnamon applesauce; coffee with Nut Pods Lunch - steamed potatoes with salt & pepper, three hard boiled eggs, romaine and cherry tomatoes with Brianna's Real French Vinaigrette (I normally wouldn't eat this because of the canola oil but it was deemed ok in another post and it's quite tasty) I'm going to start splitting dinner and movement into a separate post. I keep my food journal at home and am afraid I'll forget what I had for breakfast and lunch by the time I get off work. My 44 year-old peri-menopause brai
  11. I'm here with both of you! I'm trying to lose the same 30 pounds I've lost six times already. I eat something unhealthy and spiral my way back to larger sized clothes and feeling yucky. I don't have any answers either. Hopefully we'll all figure it out one day.
  12. Day 3 - May 25 Breakfast 2 eggs, crispy steak (cheap steak cut into thin strips, dredged in arrowroot flour and cooked in avocado oil), cinnamon apple sauce coffee with Nut Pods Lunch nothing Movement 3 mile hike This is what happened today: I didn’t eat lunch or take anything because I thought I’d be home from my hike around 1. However, the hike was a lot further away than I thought. I got really hungry on the way home and broke down and bought a bag of chips. The ingredients were all compliant but I know what potato chips to do me. Make me spiral! So
