So I made it to the hump I was striving for the whole time. A whole week? For some reason yesterday evening was hard. I spend Sundays making breakfast sandwiches, messing with pb, and handling the kids (healthier) cheese puffs. I have a red bull sitting in the fridge and a container of ice cream in the freezer. And in the clarity of mind this morning I'm seeing some of the reasons why I was having such a hard time beating the sugar demon before....
But I've come too far to turn back now. At least that's what I tell myself now. And hold on to the fact that if the pull to that food is that strong that's a clear indicator I should be refraining.
I'm still getting stomach cramps.
I'm enjoying never feeling that bloated "I feel sick because I ate too much crap" feeling. I feel lighter. I'm getting tired at night when I used to have to take melatonin. The process of energy seems more organic. Which makes me worried because I have to switch to evening crossfit classes because husbands job suddenly needs him there earlier.
Oh well. Such is life.
I am really excited I am learning how to read labels better. I thought I was good before, but no. I now see what's in my food. That's nice to know.
I hope to figure out how different foods effect my body and mind, learn about the long term effects they may have on us, then make informed decisions on my (low) budget :)
It's kind of interesting to me to learn to eat as clean as possible and try to figure out the best way to do it on a budget. Sometimes it's all farmers market. Sometimes they're more expensive... Sometimes it's waiting to have that new meat next week. Like, this week it's real (clean) pork(a great cheaper find btw!) next week I will get broth bones(another affordable "splurge") I make sure I only buy one new "toy" a week or so, as money allows. This week it was ghee. :)
Also, headaches. I keep getting them for very short durations. My body overall feels good.
My face is behaving for now.
Coconut butter(which was nasty to me a week ago) tastes like candy. So does banana which I was never a fan of in the past. I've never wanted to eat a date and nut bar so bad in my life. But I'm refraining so that I don't use that to feed my sugar demon.
