365 Days on the Paleo Diet: Day 24

24 July 2014

I’m just not buying anything my scale tells me anymore. The official weight for today is 211.9 lb., which is either a 1.9 lb. or a 4.5 lb. increase from yesterday. I venture to say instead that yesterday’s readings were all wrong, and I was somewhere around 212 lb. or 213 lb. But really, this is all just completely irrelevant.


3 eggs, scrambled with coconut oil. To shake things up I had some blueberry sausage.


After a larger breakfast, I wasn’t entirely hungry. I fixed a salad out of lettuce, half a large apple, a few straggling grapes, and two slices of bacon. I also had some almond butter on the side because I realized just how much apple was actually on the salad.


I ate dinner in two shifts because I knew I was going to the church wherein they would likely not have anything Paleo. At the house I had a carrot and a quarter, and a banana. At the church I had three hotdogs (no buns of course. I really should have avoided these but I was fairly hungry at that point.), and a pile of fruit. (Grapes, apple slices, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, and one lone piece of pineapple.)


Lots of it. 72 ounces, or so. It would have been more but we found out that the bottled water at the picnic had all these crazy chemicals we didn’t recognize. It’s a sad day when you have to watch out for the water.
