What's on your Sunday menu?
I just finished watching a short film for my documentary film class called "The Giverny Document" by Ja'Tovia Gary (it's actually partially documentary and partially avant-garde). Loved it. I want to see more of her work now. Unfortunately, it's probably not that easy to find (which is true of many of the other films we're watching for this class, too. Several of these were probably only shown at film festivals - or in experimental film-type theaters in New York. Or in film classes, of course...). Anyway, I love this class so much!
I'm planning to go to a yoga class at 11:30 - first time I've been to an in-person one in over a year. I'll probably go a little early and hit the weight room. And DH and I will probably bike this afternoon - great day for it!
QOTD: is there anything you miss about being pre-op? Only one - there have been times when I've been eating southern BBQ or a really great pizza that I wish like hell I could still eat it with abandon!
B: chaffles topped with 1/2 C plain Greek yogurt and some blueberry compote. Coffee with half & half.
MS: either a protein shake or an iced latte or a chai (if one of the last two, made with Fairlife)
L: coleslaw made with an Asian-style dressing and topped with 2 oz chicken breast
AS: L&F yogurt and a skinny bagel with cream cheese
D: 3 oz salmon topped with some Asian-style sauce and 1 C of mixed vegetables
have a great Sunday, everyone!
Good morning! We got nine miles in on our bikes yesterday. A lot of up hill, but again, we have E assist bikes so I don't want to over sell the effort. But my legs were quaking when we were done so I know I was burning energy. We had an excellent dinner on site and I made pretty good choices. Especially if we had started our all meat all week plan. Lol. A question from this newbie about that. Are cheese, eggs, yogurt all considered good choices for that plan? Our goal is as low carb as possible, right? Do you aim for a carb number? JB if you happen to be viewing this, can you give me a shout out reply? I should have clarified last week, but I won't be hitting up the grocery store until tomorrow morning.
Today is a toss up between hitting jacuzzi because my calf is still very sore or jumping on the bikes again. We have a lunch date on our way home with friends and then just nothing. I wonder if I can talk the hubs into a movie.
QoTD: I can't say I miss eating with abandon, but I do miss not having to plan for every meal. As in, if I indulge in this amazing salad, I won't be able to have protein, so I just have one or two bites. And I miss buttered bread with my meal. I rarely have a bite or two if we are somewhere that's it's hot and amazing, but bread fills me right up and I find I only get to eat two or three bites of the meal. So I generally don't have any at all. I don't miss being hot and sweaty every time we do something . That's for damn sure.
B: egg and a slice of bacon
L: grilled shrimp taco. I will probably order two, eat half of one complete and the pick the innards out of the rest
D. Real good food stuffed chicken breast.
S: beef jerky

I've never done AMAW, but I've been on here for probably five years, so I know the drill. Strict AMAW is all meat, but some people do a version called CAMAW, or something like that, which does allow dairy products and eggs in addition to meat. (It stands for Critter something-or-other). Anyway, yes, that is a legitimate option - and yes, the point is to have very few carbs. I don't think they have a specific number of carbs to stay under, though - it's more just restricting to those particular foods for a week.
CAMAW sounds more do-able to me - but there are fans of both versions.
