Day 3 Observations

I feel good
(I think I was expecting a heroin style withdrawl- shakes, pains, the full deal).
For the past 2 days I have had NO problem getting out of bed
(normally I have to snooze 3,000 times).
I've been waking up in the middle of the night to pee
(I'm mentioned before that usually means weight/excess water is coming off me).
I haven't missed sugar/salt/carbs as much as I thought I would
(my food has been really good!).
So far, this diet seems sustainable for quite a long time
(again, my food has been really good, and I feel good).
Each day I have more energy than the previous day
(I didn't want to attempt a run on day one or two, but I'm ready now).

I know, I know. I've only completed 2 full days. It could be placebo effect. But whatever it is, I guarantee you its going to get me to do another 2 days. That's what it is all about right? Being able to keep going. I don't feel deprived, at all. I like (really like) the food I've eaten so far. Preparation for eating this way hasn't really been any harder then any other time I've been careful about my food choices.

Last night I made my first attempt at Paleoturkeymeatloaf, and some caveman broccoli as a side. It was good, and my boyfriend even ate it too (after a ketchup bath).
Ground Turkey
2 eggs (cage free)
2 tbps ground flaxseed
1 small onion chopped
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 pieces uncured, all natural, beef bacon cut finely
zest from one lemon

I mixed all these together and placed in a 8X8 glass pan and cooked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (or until thermometer reads 165).

Caveman Broccoli:
5-6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
2-3 small heads broccoli cut into pieces

Heat olive oil, lightly toast garlic, add broccoli to pan and cover. I accidentally ended up carmelizing (read: burned) some of the broccoli, so I added some water to the pan to get a little more steam effect. But, I kinda liked the taste of it a little toasty, and imagined if I were a caveman, and all I had was fire to cook with, that is how my broccoli would be.

Next time, I may place some oven dried tomatoes on top of the cooking meatloaf. Meatloaf really does need some form of tomato accompaniment. I forgot to take pics, next time!
