Wednesday Weigh-in

Even though I'm following almost the same food and activity that I have for the past several weeks, weight has not shifted much all week. I weigh myself every morning, but record officially on Wednesdays. I'm at 181 lbs. I know the medication I'm on has fatigue and weight gain as possible side effects... I'm fighting it as much as I can. 

Food these days is about the same with some variations on lunch and dinner. I just have to be careful with portion sizes:

Morning: 2 Eggs with mushrooms and peppers (usual); or oatmeal and berries with almond milk, vanilla and cardamom (once a week or so); or smoothie with protein powder (twice a week or so).
1 cup coffee with almond milk 
Lunch: Grilled chicken or beef or bison on salad with 1/2 avocado sometimes with soup; or nori roll with smoked salmon or tuna with avocado, cukes and carrots
Snack: Small apple with sunflower seed butter; or tuna and red peppers
Supper: About the same kind of meal as lunch, just a smaller portion
-If still hungry in the evening, I have a cup of tea with a small amount of honey and tough it out until morning.

To all this I drink about 2 to 3 litres of water a day. 

Otherwise, not much new here. Battling dandelions and crazy growing vines in the garden. I'm certainly not missing the over 7 foot high snowbanks we had this past winter :)


  1. I'm Leah, new reader! Been enjoying your blog and we have similar stats. Sorry the scale's not moving even though you're following your plan! Maybe try switching it up a bit? Switch the dinner and lunch portions, make breakfast the biggest meal, try new foods, etc.

  2. Hi Leah! Yep, I think you are right. I've been doing this same food template for a while and need to tweek things. Will look at some of my paleo and clean eating books this weekend for some new ideas.

    1. Sounds good - I hope you write about it!

  3. I was going to complain about the heat least week and then I shut myself RIGHT up. After the winter we had, I WILL NOT complain about the heat! :)

    PS, you're doing fantastic!!!! I've never had bison before... I'll have to try it sometime.

    1. Ha! We Canuks love to complain about the weather. It's like a part-time job for some folks! Yeah we've had a few uncomfortable days here but nothing like it gets in August, +35C plus humidity. I'm not complaining... for now :)

      Thanks! Bison is a nice lean meat and tasty grilled, best cooked to medium or medium rare.
