Got up 6:40 am.

Breakfast (7:00 am): 1 hard boiled egg white, 1 cup Vanilla Rice Krispies + 1 tbs wheat bran cereal with 1 cup light soy milk, 2 1/2 tsp Acacia.

It is 8:52 am and I have still not had a BM. I feel pretty C right now - for the first time in weeks!

Snack (10:45): carrot pineapple muffin with light margarine. Now 11:30 am and still no BM, and still feel like I have to go.

Lunch (12:30 pm): canned chicken sandwich on Save-On white bread, light Miracle Whip and margarine, mustard. Peppermint tea. Still no BM - tummy is pretty uncomfortable.

Snack (3:10 pm): 6 blanched almonds. Still uncomfortable. On a scale of 1-10 it's about 3.5 - not fun but definately bearable.

Dinner (5:30 pm): Tofu stir fry (rice, tofu, brocolli, Egg Beaters, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, paprika), multivitamin, 1 tbs Acacia, 1 mini Cadbury Creme Egg. Did 10 minutes on my stationary bike.

Snack (8:30 pm): about 1/4 cup of crushed pineapple with juice, 1 slice white bread with margarine.

Still no BM. Feeling a little less uncomfortable. Looks like it won't be happening today. So much for my C-free streak.

Got up 8:50 am.

Had a BM at 9:10 am! Yay! It was very firm (typical of a day after being C), small to moderate volume.

Breakfast (9:30 am) Glass of light soy milk with 2 1/2 tsp Acacia, oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar, 2 slices Save-On white toast with light margarine.

Had another very small BM at 10:10 - fairly soft but very small volume.

Lunch (1:15 pm): ham and avocado sandwich with light miracle whip, margerine, and mustard. Yummy!

Snack (3:30 pm): large graham cracker and 1/2 banana

Dinner (5:15 pm): Lemon Herb Pasta Salad with Chicken, over baby spinach (hope that doesn't come back and bite me!). Multivitamin, and 1 tbs Acacia. Did 10 minutes on my stationary bike.

Got up at 9:30 am.

BM at 10:00 - it was firm, small volume, but when I wiped it was really mushy, which doesn't make much sense. There was also red pepper skins in it - okay that would be from the pasta salad last night! I feel fine though.

Breakfast (10:15 am): mushroom omelet made with Egg Beaters, two slices white toast, one with margarine and marmelade, the other with margarine and strawberry jam. 2 1/2 tsp Acacia mixed in a glass of light soy milk.

Lunch (2:15 pm): Cambell's Chunky Split Pea Soup with 3 saltine crackers. One slice Heather's chocolate applesauce cake.

Dinner (5:15 pm): Vegetable Lo Mein, made with celery. Multivitamin and 1 tbs Acacia. Did 10 minutes on stationary bike.

Snacks (6:50 pm): 1 mini Cadbury Creme Egg. (8:00 pm): Neopolitan soy ice cream.

Got up 6:30 am (ugh - Mondays).

BM at about 7:00 am - medium consistency but mushy wipe again. Moderate volume, all one piece.

Breakfast (7:05 am): hard-boiled egg white, 1 cup Rice Krispies with about 1 tbs wheat bran cereal, 1 cup light soy milk with 2 3/4 tsp Acacia.

The drive to work was a little dicey this morning. Had that "nervous tummy" feeling so I had to go into my meditative zone during the whole drive. As soon as I got to work I had another BM - very small volume but thin and very soft. The urgency was mild but still - I didn't like it. I think I'll have to lay off the mini Cadbury Creme Eggs for awhile and see what happens. They've been my only real cheat since Christmas.

Snack (11:00 am): slice of Heather's Chocolate Applesauce Cake. Tummy has been slightly crampy/nervous for most of the morning. Not bad, but not great either.

Lunch (12:30 pm): Black forest ham sandwich on Safeway white bread, with light margarine, Miracle Whip, and mustard. Peppermint tea. Tummy seems to be feeling better.

Snack (2:45 pm): 3 blanched almonds. (3:55 pm): 1 plain rice cake.

Dinner (5:45 pm): Orangle glazed salmon (marmelade, soy sauce, ground ginger), rice and peas. Multivitamin, 1 tbs Acacia. Did 10 minutes on bike.

Snacks: tiny piece of dairy free dark chocolate, peach soy yogurt, 1 slice of white bread (end piece) with light margarine.

Got up 6:35 am. Had a BM about 10 minutes later, started with a hard pebble, but then turned into 100% normal - compact, well-formed, clean wipe - perfect.

Breakfast (7:05 am): hard-boiled egg white, 1 cup Rice Krispies with about 1 tbs wheat bran cereal, 1 cup light soy milk with 2 3/4 tsp Acacia.

Snack (10:50 am): slice Heather's chocolate applesauce cake. Mmmm...

Lunch (12:45 pm): California roll with soy sauce. Peppermint tea.

Snack (3:45 pm): Nut and Cranberry Luna bar.

Dinner (6:00 pm): 2 Shneiders low-fat hot dogs with ketchup, mustard, relish on Safeway white bread. Multivitamin, 1 tbs Acacia.

Snacks: tiny piece of dairy-free dark chocolate. Slice of Heather's chocolate applesauce cake with light margarine.

I actually weighed and measured myself today - weight was 132.5 lbs (which means I've lost 16.5 lbs since starting this diet!), and waist was a surprising 29.5". I can't remember the last time it was below 31. Hips = 39 (no change) and can you believe I forgot to measure my bust . Bailey was eyeing the measuring tape so maybe I got distracted. But my bras feel REALLY generous in the cups so I know I've lost some there, too.

Got up 6:35 am. Had a BM right away - firm pebbly pieces, moderate volume, very dark in colour. Barely had time to wash my face and I had to go again - this time was softer, about the same volume but not pebbly, slight orange tinge (last night's spaghetti sauce no doubt).

Breakfast (7:00 am): hard-boiled egg white, 1 cup Rice Krispies with about 1 tbs wheat bran cereal, 1 cup light soy milk with 2 3/4 tsp Acacia.

Snack (10:50 am): slice of Heather's chocolate applesauce cake.

Took a Tylenol with codeine at about 11:55 am for a headache. Guess I should record those, too!

Lunch (12:30 pm): Black forest ham sandwich on Safeway white bread, with light margarine, Miracle Whip, and mustard. Peppermint tea.

Snack (4:00 pm): plain rice cake

Dinner (5:50 pm): ground turkey, potato, carrot, rice "stirfry" (also contained garlic, onion, italian seasoning, soy sauce). Multivitamin, 1 tbs Acacia.

Snacks: tiny piece dairy-free dark chocolate, 1 banana, 1/2 tsp peanut butter. And had a couple of sips of hubby's rum and diet coke.

Yay, Friday!!! Got up 6:35 am. Had a BM about 6:55 am, med-firm, one piece, small volume. Went again about 20 minutes later, softer, about the same volume.

Breakfast (7:00 am): hard-boiled egg white, 1 cup Rice Krispies with about 1 tbs wheat bran cereal, 1 cup light soy milk with 2 3/4 tsp Acacia.

Snack (11:00 am): slice of Heather's chocolate applesauce cake.

Lunch (12:45 pm): Turkey sub from Mr. Sub (with lettuce, tomato, pickles, mushrooms, onions, and mustard). Walked up there to get it - I almost didn't but it felt SO good to get out and go for that walk (about 4 blocks total there and back). I should do this more often - I'm so darn lazy!

Also had a peppermint tea at 1:50 pm.

Snack (3:50 pm): plain rice cake.

Dinner (5:30 pm): sushi (assorted rolls: california, alaska, spicy tuna, cucumber, pickle). Multivitamin, 1 tbs Acacia.
