Half a Pound of Bacon

That's what I ate for my after dinner snack last night. (Except for three pieces.) I am having trouble getting enough calories in on Atkins, since everything I like to eat is carbs. But I am fairly sure the bacon put me over. Before the bacon I was at 990. That's not enough calories to keep your body out of starvation mode and I don't want to go there.

Last night I had the worst headache of my life. I think. At least it I can't remember having a headache worse. I was trying to put it on a scale of one to ten. Since I gave a ruptured ovary and internal hemorraghing a 6 I figured this headache must be about a 4. I took 3 naproxen, the best painkiller for me. Then I got an ice pack for my head and a heating pad for my jaw. If I put the heading pad on my head I was nauseous. But the icepack never felt cold enough to make any difference to the headache. I did go to sleep and by 10 this morning light no longer hurts my head.

I measured and I don't have much change in inches. Breasts, waist, hips are the same. I lost a quarter inch in my arm and three quarters an inch in my thighs. But I gained half an inch in my calves. It is important to lose inches. Very importat. Because I've lost 6 pounds of scale weight. I don't want to be losing the muscle I worked so hard to get.

  1. Thanks for leaving the comment. Your headache is probably due to you not eating enough. One way I have found when reducing carbs is to eat spanish style black beans. take some bacon, fry is slowly to get the fat. remove the bacon, add a small only, some garlic, and a jalapeno pepper. fry until translucent. then add one can of drained black beans. add black pepper, salt, oregeno and adobo if you have it. super tasty and great w/ cheese. i think “The Zone” has better diet advice then atkins!
