I am so glad to have (almost) one week down, and I’m also a little nervous about the weeks ahead of me. I pretty much think about food all of the time: what I want to eat, what I should eat, when I can eat, whether I’m hungry enough to justify a snack or if I’m just eating out of boredom. I’ve stopped eating mindlessly, but that has been my biggest challenge. Also, I’m going to bed hungry every SINGLE night.
I feel really, really good. I don’t feel the need for a (many) nap(s) throughout the day, my energy levels are up and I don’t have unexplained tummy troubles throughout the day. I practically FALL into bed every night, which makes me feel like the day has been productive. (Also, the sooner I go to sleep, the sooner I can stop thinking about fooooood.)
On Friday I completely blew it with breakfast, but forced myself to get it together for the rest of the day, rather than calling it a complete wash. This is a complete change in attitude for me.
I miss dessert. I know dessert isn’t off limits, but I am not a girl who has ever eaten just one cookie, or just one square of dark chocolate. I was a dessert girl. Last Sunday? This:
Way to go out with a bang, right? Anyway, I haven’t cut sugar out completely. I’m eating fruit like it’s going to disappear from the earth at any moment, I’ve had oatmeal with just the tiniest smidge of brown sugar, and I’ve also recorded a Blow Pop and a (single!) cookie in my food diary. (I am a person who keeps a food diary. Help.) Then there was breakfast on Friday, but I would rather not talk about that. (We ate here, OMG.)
I’m about to stop using Instagram altogether. Do you have any idea how many pictures of donuts people post?
I have worked out five out of the last six days. The goal is six days per week with Sundays off. I haven’t totally figured out the timing of this. On Tuesday I set my alarm for 5:30am and… that only happened once. I hate being sweaty, and I really hate being sweaty in the middle of the day with no time to shower. I am a princess, make no mistake.
A new cupcake place opened within walking distance of my house this week and I have completely stayed away. There’s some sort of medal for that behavior, right?
I have a whole bunch of foods that are working for me that I might share if anyone’s interested (and probably even if you’re not,) so look for that!
