Off day. But not an OFF day.

Last night I didn't sleep well.

I ate great foods all day,  had a great WOD that evening, and even made sure my sink was shining before I headed to bed. Unfortunately, in life, sometimes circumstances arise to make everything not go as perfectly planned as you'd like.

My goal is to learn to not let those throw me off track, which is what I have suspected has been happening until now.

Let me note:

  • I am tired from lack of sleep, and a restless sleep.
  • I had a PB&J last night on wheat bread one of the times I woke up.
  • I Had a very strenuous work out yesterday. I am very sore.
  • I am bloated today
  • My head is spinning.
  • I had a frustrating morning.
I could keep going. But the point of this post is honestly not to complain. It is to prove to myself and anyone else who may need it, that you don't need to use food to cope. My go-to is cupcakes, bread, ice cream, ect... and I do want those things, but I stop every time I'm about to.

I keep remembering what it feels like when I eat a lot of that stuff. And how when I eat the sugars and breads, the sugars and breads are all I want still. I'm having an "off" day. I'm working hard at work anyway, even though I'm making stupid little mistakes that I normally wouldn't make. I'm going to have an active rest day by going for a bike ride or walk with the kids. I plan to drink a lot of water to help this bloating(which I'm not sure why I have, but that's part of the point of this journey) I'm going out to get sunlight on purpose to get that Vit D naturally, and I am listening to positive books on audio while I work.

One craving I might give in to?


I want it. and I want it bad. and that's okay.. right?

My favorite meal right now is steak with veggies in balsalmic and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce on the side.. mm.

I hope you're staying positive and grounded today as well!

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum.
