since you asked

A typical week might include:
Butternut Squash... Shrimp... Bacon... Avocado
Bone Broth... Green Beans... Peppers... Brisket
Steak... Berries... Eggs... Salmon
Mackerel... Shrimp w/potato... 
Bacon-wrapped Asparagus... Roasted Tomatoes, Onions,
Salmon w/ sweet potato and cranberries!

I don't tend to do a lot of cooking.
I make very simple dishes.
A meat. A veggie. 

I still have a protein shake.
Or two. Cut way back on sweeteners.
And coffee. Just 2 cups a day.
Now I have some green tea. Or tea.
Try to walk every day.
CrossFit twice a week. 
Still do my neck/shoulder exercises still every day...
9 months after my concussion and head injury!

This was about May/June 2011.
Look at the stuff I was loving!
And look at me.... as they say...
"The body keeps a journal, 
regardless of what we write down!"

I've been pretty consistant at or around 28%
on the fancy CF scales... not really up or down
more than 5 pounds a year.... That's ok... considering!
Still wear my size medium scrubs!

So onward and downward to a new year!
2012! 'Bout time!

  5. Loving the montage. I get great ideas for foods from you. Last nights meatloaf was a success. I got the idea from your chili.I hope you don't mind my stealing some ideas from you. You are so creative in the kitchen. I am hoping this week I can do the grocery shopping myself and get some good Atkins approved items.
