    Weight down yet again this morning, at this rate I MIGHT hit 120 this week. I still think it is just due to water loss and being off my usual fitness schedule. I am getting back to that, slowly but surely as I recovery from this allergy/asthmatic bronchitis/plague thing I've fought for the last solid week. Whatever my weight is currently doing, it will bounce back to the usual range once I am recovered. I am making an effort to eat a bit more just in case my caloric intake is lower than I think it is:

    Yesterday:

    B: 5 ounces of my current ground pork/veggie/egg casserole
    Group training session that featured a functional movement screen and correctives - much lower intensity level than usual
    L: Big a*s salad with lots of veggies, pecans, raisins, chicken and home-made dressing
    D: bone broth with lots of veggies, chard, more chicken and roasted butternut squash on the side with a bit of butter + a few pecans. Small amount of 85% dark chocolate

    Today:

    B: See yesterday, but a bit more of it
    L: Big a*s salad with lots of veggies, pecans, chicken and home-made dressing
    I do have a kettlebell training group at lunch, so I brought some extra egg casserole for a snack. Protein shake would be fine, but trying to get my calories up a bit...
    D:???? Roast chicken and veggies if I don't feel like cooking, we will see

    I AM starting to finally feel better though

    It sounds like you've had quite a time. I totally get the bronchial/asthma thing!
    B: 2 egg omelette with spinach and grated cheddar, 1/4 avocado, an orange, coffee
    L: chicken salad with walnuts and dried cranberries
    rode to meet friends for coffee, 7.2 miles, had some decaf, then rode 14 miles home, the long way
    S: slice of raisin spelt bread with sun nut butter
    D: 2 chicken thighs, sauted and then baked with fennel and green onions. Whole wheat cous cous. 2 squares dark chocolate

    The thighs baked with fennel sounds interesting Crankin - but I always seem to just narrowly avoid an ER visit every time I try to start cutting fennel. Fennel and Jicama

    Dinner turned out to be another healing bone-broth "soup" (for lack of a better name) that was filled with chopped sweet potato, roasted chicken, an egg, chard and spices. Followed with a bit of 85% dark chocolate Still had to do the protein shake though to bump my numbers up a bit. Made another batch of mustard-glazed baked chicken thighs for the next few days, and set some things into the fridge to thaw for chili.

    KB training session was far more a butt-kicker than my group yesterday was. Very different instructor, but he has started to lay it on me - and my body took it better than I had hoped. I seem to be on the mend. Now I just need to lose the last of this cough...

    half a banana before boot camp

    Still having problems with a lack of appetite, but I am starting to recover from the creeping plague. As it turns out the medication our employee clinic gave me was guaranteed to really exasperate my asthma, things got pretty dire. I am on the mend now though I won't return to that clinic again. If they don't know how to treat respiratory problems for someone with asthma then I won't put myself at risk.

    Today:

    Brekkie: eggs scrambled with spinach, bacon, coffee
    Solo KB workout, pretty intense and it felt pretty darn good (even with the coughing). Felt good to be able to move again without it feeling like it is going to kill me
    L: forgot about it
    So - very early dinner: planning on some chili and a salad, along with a small serving of organic Dark Chocolate Coconut Bliss (basically just creamy frozen coconut milk, cacoa and a bit of vanilla and agave)
    If I have an evening snack it will be some bone broth with veggies.

    B: when I came downstairs, DH had made me blueberry waffles, a treat for the weekday. I added 2 turkey sausages, and an orange, coffee
    S: I ate half a banana at around 11. I was starving already.
    L: I decided not to add the weight of full tupperware to my pannier today, so I went to the hospital cafeteria to get something. I tried the salad bar, instead of the prepared salad I've had before. Meh, not enough protein. That, with my apple was not enough.
    S: had the second half of the banana at 2 and a Lara Bar at 4. By 6, when I was getting ready to leave and ride home, I snagged 2 animal crackers from the kitchen.
    D: ate the left over chicken and fennel, with pureed parsnips. 2 squares dark chocolate.
