Beating the cravings….
Not gonna lie, there were a few times this week where I wanted to binge and then just go back and try again. I got my headache from cutting the carbs by day 2-3 and it was fierce. Nothing a bag of chips couldn’t fix or Jimmy Johns! But I quite frankly didn’t want to end of with it again so I stayed on task. One thing I didn’t do was watch my portions at all this week. I know I gained and I ate too much because I can feel it. But hey… giving up bad carbs was hard enough… I didn’t want to feel hungry and deprived too.
This week my dreams of bread are gone. My problem is 2pm…. I want sweets and/or a Vanilla Latte. Haven’t caved except for Saturday night we had an anniversary dinner and I had wine and cheese. Oh to die for! It only comes once a year 😉 I got right back on and didn’t let it be an excuse to eat bad again Sunday so I was happy with myself.
Things are quite right yet with a Paleo approach. I like what a friend did in her blog …. she called it Primeo. It takes the best of a couple approaches and combines it. She is eating the healthy items that you don’t find in a traditional paleo and eating them on the weekends. I find a 80/20 approach to anything is my key to success so I am stealing her recipes and thinking it’s a great idea!!
Well I had to check this off my list of things I was suppose to do yesterday…. now I need to check off going to bed and getting some sleep!! As you can see the days are packed and I even had Ava in my vlog… and no comment about my weary look today
