Cygnet, I just saw you are eating Paleo. Is the Whole30 like the 30 day challenge? I guess I could google too...
That's awesome Cygnet!cygnet|1374169968|3485648 said:Hi guys!
I weighed in this morning and I've lost nine pounds since the beginning of the month! Yay!
I was afraid I had gained, because two weekends ago, I had a barbecue with friends after a 10 hour workday and my resolve was weak, so when I was offered a glass of champagne, I had four... and then because of that, all sugar cravings came back with a vengeance and suddenly I was eating coconut-sugar brownies in an effort to keep the sugar headaches at bay and I basically felt terrible for four days. Ugh, backtracking. But it's all better now and I still lost weight, so yay!
I bought two paleo cookbooks and hopefully the excitement of new food will keep me on track. I enjoy eating paleo and I know it makes everything better when I stick to it (no more acne, asthma, crazy weight gain, constant fatigue or mood swings) but sometimes I have to push myself to stick through it because I can get lazy. Grain and sugar-laden foods aren't tastier, they're just easier, so sometimes it's hard not to just eat that one thing (and then another, and another). Like last night I had the craziest craving for ramen. What the heck? I didn't give in and instead I had a ribeye and some broccoli. Yum.
July 1st: 188 lbs
July 18th: 179 lbs
Sorry to hear that juicing was a bust. I am not really big into juicing either. I have never felt really satisfied while trying to juice. I felt like I was always hungry and craving something SOLID.madelise|1374606070|3488619 said:My exercise got cut short immediately after I started. I had a little growth on the bottom of my foot that I thought was just an innocent blister I'm still wobbling around… waiting to see what becomes of it! For now, it hurts to even walk on my foot. Poopy.
I finally got to juicing last week, after my order with my BFF. Yeah. Juicing is NOT for me. I have one bedroom I live out of, so I was washing the juicer and cups in the bathroom sink and bath tub. That's not going to work out. I'm going to complete all the veggies and fruits in my fridge for now, and then return the juicer. The spout keeps getting clogged, causing me to waste a lot of juice. I hate juicing.. it's the worst, ever. I can see how it can be successful if I had a kitchen bar area where I can easily wipe off once something spills or leaks… but I f*cked up my wall, my table, my floor, my rug… and some clothes it splashed onto since my closet isn't too far away.
SO was so happy that I wanted to change… heard of my unhappiness and kept insisting something was going wrong. So I juiced with him here and it was just as horrible. He laughed at me and said it's not going to work out. Uh…. yeah! LIKE I SAID!
But… either way, I'm down a few pounds.. which can easily go right back up with one salty meal or snack. Yikes. So… this paleo thing.. you can eat steak all day everyday?
