Day 2 of paleo

The first day went fine....even though I'm sick, my youngest is sick, we got little sleep, and he stayed home from school.  Today, well I'm dragging.  I  am tired, hungry for some easy, convenient foods that would make me feel better....maybe just mentally, but hey that's a start.

hoping to get my coughing, sputtering kid back to school tomorrow.

New Start Monday!!!

Okay, so I've decided to try something new...and I'm starting today.  A friend was telling me about Paleo/whole30 eating + clean eating.  Basically....you eat meats, veggies, seeds/nuts.....no dairy, no grains, no legumes (sayonara PB), no sugars, no processed junk AT ALL. There are a few different opinions on fruits.  I don't think I can give that up altogether.  I will look for choices that fall lower on the glycemic index.   I've been researching and reading....and decided "what the heck, 30 days....sure I can do anything for 30 days" .  So today's the day.

I've gotten back on my exercise habit and it feels GREAT!  I will be restarting the 30-day SHRED and plan on continuing with the stationary bike.  That combo did not fail me in the past.

Oh and I'm so excited.... S got me my new blender from Costco today.  They had the Ninja in their coupon book.  I haven't seen it yet, but just saw the box. It's a doozey. Soooo, I'm hoping to experiment with some smoothies, soups and stuff.  Woohoo!!!

And for the record, I did not pay for anything to do this.  I know the site I listed wants to charge for downloads, ebooks, etc.  I just used it for info and did further research for me.  Honestly I refuse to pay for something when I can find the information for myself.

Struggling but regaining focus

I've really been struggling lately.  I've personally bee spread too thin....me being pulled in different directions.  I went much of last week without exercising.  That physically made me feel like crap and mentally made me feel guilty.  I had a busy week with lots of appts and running around and also dental problems.  Those issues kept me from eating right and timely.  It's easy, when stressed, to go for the easy fixes.....I need to chalk it up to a bad week and move on.  Life is some-what back to normal.  I did get in 35 min of exercise yesterday and plan to continue today.  I need to get back to journalling my food ASAP.  I feel so out of control when I don't.

I logged into my fitness pal to read the message boards.  Success stories are very inspiring to me.  I immediately saw one of my mfp "friends" posts about her 1 year anniversary...she's lost over 100 lbs in one year. WOW!!! she's dedicated to exercising....trying lots of new things....and allowing herself to be real with food (not depriving herself).

Hope you all are doing well.....we can do this!!!
