    B: we stayed in the city overnight and went to a fabulous old sandwich shop for breakfast. Shared tables, no bathroom! We had an awesome conversation with our 3 table mates from the South End. This does not happen in Concord. Anyway, I had their specialty, turkey hash with 2 eggs over easy, and rye toast, coffee. I ate one slice of the toast, but ate 3/4 of the hash. Great.
    L/S: ate a couple of dried apricots and walnuts when I came home from the grocery store, then I had a bowl of oranges and strawberries topped with a little plain non fat Greek yogurt, more coffee.
    Did about a 45 minute workout with running intervals, weights, core, jacks, burps, then stretching at home.
    D: went out to our favorite pub. I had steak tips and veggies. had one forkful of rice and 2 of DH's onion rings. one beer.

    B: Sweet potato hash, eggs, spinach, coffee
    Usual Sunday Funday conditioning workout, plus I ran a mile afterwards, followed by protein shake
    L: Cinnamon beef stew over left over sweet potato hash from breakfast
    D: West African Chicken stew over roasted spaghetti squash

    The West African chicken stew turned out well, even better than last time. The recipe calls for sunflower seed butter without sugar, and I couldn't find any. Last time I used some that did but I prefer to not use added sugar when possible. So I bought some raw sunflower seed kernals for < $2 and proceeded to attempt to make my own nutbutter. Apparently my food processor isn't powerful enough for that, after almost 30 minutes all I had was very, very fine sunflower...unsure what to call it - it is too fine to call meal but not quite fine enough for flour. Anyway, I used this, whatever it is, in my recipe and it worked out well. Since the volume didn't really decrease, I did add more to the stew than the 1/4 cup called for in the recipe.

    Rest day. Good thing, as yesterday, I woke up with a pulled muscle in my head??? You know, when you can't turn your head. Not my neck. Anyway, I did go to boot camp yesterday, but the head was interfering with my sleep last night, so I treated myself this morning with with some MacKenzie techniques and a heating pad and it's better. Much better.
    B: 4 slices of lox, rolled up with veggie light cream cheese on zucchini. An orange, coffee
    L: salad with spinach, lettuce, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm, red pepper, and tuna. an apple.
    S: 3 slices low salt ham with a dab of mayo
    D: scrod baked with a crust of crushed pecans and pepper and a mixture of tomatoes, green chili, poblano, red pepper, onion, with slices of avocado. 2 squares dark chocolate
    My weight is in the danger zone. I am seriously beside myself!

    Crankin, glad you found something that helped your neck! I am curious which MacKenzie techniques you used. I pretty much always have neck stuff going on so am always looking for ways to deal with it.

    Today:

    B: eggs scrambled with spinach, 1 slice bacon, coffee
    1 hour group training followed by a protein shake
    L: bison/grass-fed angus/sweet potato chili over roasted spaghetti squash
    D: last of the West African Chicken stew over more roasted spaghetti squash and spinach. 1/2 small banana

    Good luck on figuring it out Crankin, that is always so frustrating to know that something is off.

    Catrin, basically just using trigger point pressure on the 2 "bumps" at the bottom of my head (I have no idea what the scientific name is) and a neck/head stretch where you press your chin in and down. There's also one that you can do in the car, where you press your head back into the headrest.

    Hi guys - I'm going to join you for the next 21 days, if you don't mind. I'm doing a Whole21, so I figured this is as good a place as any to record my food. It'll keep me honest, too.

    Today (planned)
    B: smoothie - coconut milk, 1/2 banana, blueberries, spinach and egg white powder
    S: coffee
    L: tuna, shredded carrots, homemade mayo on a bed of spinach and red pepper strips
    S: orange, HB egg
    D:ham and cabbage soup, roasted broccoli

    GLC, that is a good idea! I am thinking about a 21 day sugar detox myself, I've allowed too many sweet things to creep back in. Fructose isn't my friend, just saying!

    Thanks Crankin!

    Today:

    B: 2 eggs scrambled with spinach, a little bison chili as a topping, coffee
    S: boiled egg and a bit of spinach
    L: bison chili over roasted spaghetti squash and spinach
    D: probably roasted chicken, veggies and butter lettuce

    Catrin - I was signed up to attend a book signing by Diane Sanfilippo, Michelle Tam and Hayley Mason & Bill Staley last night and my plan was to buy the 21-day sugar detox book (or cookbook) when I was there (and have her sign it) but something came up and I couldn't go. I was bummed! Do you have Diane's book or were you just thinking of doing something of your own design?

    After seeing the photos - I think I need to get Michelle's 'Food for Humans' book too now!

    I am getting a VO2 Max test...so there is no extra funds for more books right now I would love to get the cookbook, but it will have to wait. I know enough now that I CAN figure it out on my own and with my 4 paleo cookbooks (including her first book), there shouldn't be a problem. I am very carefully NOT looking up the other book you mentioned or I will want that one as well!
