I stepped on the scale today happy to see I went from 139.8 to 137.8. Hope I’m in the 137’s tomorrow but not holding my breath. That seems too good to be true (especially with it happening overnight).

I’m quite boring with my meals. I find what works and I enjoy and stick with it until I find something else.


As you can see I had a big spike up with my weight. At least for this mama it was a big spike, no huge. I was down to 137 and could almost taste being at my 130 goal weight.

I don’t like to write about this but it was that time of the month. It was a mean one this time around. I could feel I was holding some water, especially in my legs. They just felt heavy and I spent a lot of time in bed.

My body on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday was craving some good nourishing fats like coconut oil, olive oil, cream, scrambled eggs in butter, and a T-bone steak Winking smile I wanted to give me what my body needed but I also had a fuel cycle to complete. That’s when is gets confusing. I made a commitment with completing a Fuel Cycle but listening to ones body is very important and isn’t that the real goal, to understand what your body needs? I just felt torn and chose to continue with my Fuel Cycle. I don’t know if it was the right decision but what’s done is done and tomorrow will be a very nourishing day for me.

As you can see weight wise it was not good. I only lost 2oz but that’s okay, my body was also going through a lot as well.

Tomorrow I’ll give my body what it wants and start another Fuel Cycle, Deep S day. Yay, Bulletproof coffee here I come. This next FC will be what some of my HTM calls a mini, 2 days of Deep S, 1 Fuel Pull day and 1 E day then back to freestyling. The ‘mini’ fuel cycle is not a true FC but I don’t want to end this one while on my cycle if you know what I mean.
