Today was okay. I did better at least on the paleo side of things. I’d say I was 80% paleo. Still not good enough though!
Had to write an essay so I went to starbucks and redeemed my free birthday drink to get that temptation out of the way. I had such a sugar high and then had a crash shortly thereafter – clear indication as to why sugar is bad! I also felt kind of depressed around dinner time when I was talking to my boyfriend on the phone. Maybe it was just a placebo effect because I know how bad sugar is, or maybe it really was the sugar… Who knows… All I know is that it is gone tomorrow! No more sugar (tonight in my coffee). Lol
My mom also gave me a container of greek yogurt on the weekend so I had to finish that off too today.
Plus, I didn’t even go to the gym because I was feeling too tired. Darn sugar, always bringing me down!
Tomorrow is a new day. I have a roast in the oven, my lunch is packed, and I have a swimming date with my friend. Need to start the triathlon training!
(my grammar and punctuation really goes down the drain in these blog posts)
So I totally forgot about this blog and have totally failed on my paleo goals…
The end of 2013 was tough – bouts of paleo combined with lots of sugar and wheat… Stress got the better of me when my boyfriend and I broke up in September and I had tons of exams in dentistry.
I am vowing to myself to make 2014 different. I am almost at my highest weight again as I have eaten terribly over the holidays. I am depressed over how fat I am compared to my size 0/2 sisters. I’ve gained extra fat in my arms and legs and don’t feel as comfortable in my clothes as I used to. I really need to make a change and stick to it.
I am going to focus on meal planning and prep my meals ahead for the week. I am going to adopt the perfect health diet as I feel I need more carbs right now to combat my sugar cravings. I want to completely cut out sugar, wheat, legumes, and unhealthy oils.
I’m sick of being the fat girl!
Today is my second day of no gluten/wheat. Yesterday went okay. I went to the Jays game in the afternoon and fought off my urge to eat a hamburger or street meat for lunch. Settled on some peanuts instead: so not paleo and not very healthy either. Oh well!
I prepped my breakfast and lunch yesterday so I was good to go.
2 boiled eggs, 1/2 avocado, and cauliflower for breaky
Ground beef, baby spinach and tomato for lunch, with an apple
I ended up having whey protein after a lifting workout today (also not paleo), but had a good dinner of ground beef over an egg white pancake with avocado, lettuce and tomato. It was my attempt to make a taco minus the flour tortilla but it failed when my egg pancake stuck together when I folded it over.
I also always have sweet cravings at night so I ate an iogo yogurt… They are so full of sugar and artificial flavours but I got a ton of free ones on the weekend so I feel obligated to eat them. As long as there is no wheat!
I definitely have no beef with ground beef. It’s so easy to cook and versatile in a lot of different recipes.
Here is a site I just found with some good ground beef meals:
I love nerd fitness. I subscribe to their emails and usually they write about some pretty insightful stuff. I will have to try out some of these recipes this week because I have a good 2lbs of ground beef in my fridge waiting to be cooked and eaten. Mmm
Cut out all wheat!
Small changes will add up. Wheat always makes me overeat. I never feel full after a slice of bread and I usually have terrible digestion afterward (hello smelly farts!). I need to cut back on all the wheat products I consume, especially since they are usually loaded with sugar: muffins, cakes, bagels, cookies, etc.
I can do it! Gluten-free 🙂
Here is my first paleo post.
I decided to start this blog after realizing I need to get my eating habits back on track. Today, I ate a piece of toast and eggs for breakfast (not completely horrible), followed by 3 pieces of pizza for lunch with 2 hazelnut cookies. Then an iced cappucino for a mid afternoon snack… and then, a grilled cheese, potato salad, a haagandaaz icecream bar, lots of chips, and more… I’ve developed a bit of a binge eating problem and I need to stop eating so much!
I am now sitting down with my Practical Paleo book (my birthday present from 8 months ago) so I can pick out some good paleo recipes for the upcoming week.
I need to do this! For my health, brain, skin, teeth, confidence…the list goes on
