Forgot to log in for the past two days. I didn't work out, but I'm trying to remember what all I ate. Yesterday I made a pot roast (grassfed beef, beef broth, potatoes, onions, celery) for dinner and I had an omelet for breakfast (with a teeny bit of bacon, green and red peppers, onions and garlic, whole eggs) but I can't remember what else, nor can I remember what I ate on Saturday but I remember it wasn't enough food.
