Fell into OMAD

March 10th, 2015 at 08:27 pm

I recently attempted a 3 days fast in order to reset my immune system. Sadly, my stomach protested a bit too loudly and I ended up giving in to it by the end of the day. This process repeated several more times, so I decided to shelve the fast for the moment. The one meal a day schedule I've inadvertently been on felt wonderful though, and saved me a ton of time. I think I'll continue this for now and see where it goes.

Was it always this gross?

Picked up some KFC chicken today because I was hungry, lazy, ran out of food, etc... and now I'm consider dumping the entire bucket. I don't ever remember it tasted this bad. Granted, it has been more than a decade since I last ate anything other than hot wings from there, but still. Bleh! I don't think it's a matter of my palate being used to whole food. Junk food used to taste good after a long stretch of home cooked meals. I don't think a lot of the junk food now a day could even be called food anymore. It certainly doesn't taste like it.

January Review

February 1st, 2013 at 08:13 pm

Barely in the black this month. Budget busters include food and a last minute transcontinental flight. On the up side, my fridge is fully stock and it will probably take me a year to eat everything in the freezer.

Vegetable Stock

January 26th, 2013 at 10:09 pm

Been reading up on making vegetable stock from veggie scraps and I'm kicking myself for wasting so much veggie all this time. I think it was back in October when I had to throw out several bags full of vegetables that had been sitting in the fridge for around 4 weeks because I didn't have time to cook. My veggie must have been non-mutant or really old mutants since they spoiled so unbelievably fast. They're not organic for goodness sake.

Appetite Suppressant

Recently bought some coconut oil for hair, skin, general health and stumbled upon the weight loss side of it. I didn't think it would be effective but what do you know, it actually worked.

I took a spoonful of coconut oil along with 2 drumsticks, some kimchi and an apple. That was 6 hours ago and I'm still not hungry. Also feeling too energetic, which is nice since the fatigue that has been plaguing me is gone, but I really need to go to sleep early....

Blown budget

January 12th, 2013 at 11:36 am

Well, technically I don't have a budget. I spend whatever I want, record them all, and at the end of the month go, holy moly...did I spend that much?...no more on that category. But since I've written down some of the goals I want to accomplish, I'm more conscious of this particular expense.

Unfortunately I made the mistake of walking into a Costco this week. I have a love and hate relationship with 3 places, Whole Food, Trader Joe and Costco. Love their products, hate always walking out with $100 to $200 gone from my wallet.

I intended to pick up some eggs, shrimps and beef and ended up walking out with a $171.51 receipt, without the beef. Still need to go back for the pork loin they have on sale too.

All set for next week

Too much chicken noodle soup. Must remember to keep the soup and the noodle separate next time.
