Gaaaaaahhhhhh! I veered way off track with the blog last week! We were incredibly busy with school activities, the end of first quarter and getting all assignments in, parent-teacher conferences…you name it. But I’m back!
So, I stuck to the diet just fine until last night…I had gluten and dairy last night in the form of a delicious slice from Papa Keno’s in Lawrence, KS. I fully intended to at least order their gluten-free crust (made from buckwheat), but when it was my turn to order I piped up and ordered my slice like usual without even thinking about it. I wasn’t too worried about the dairy (tons of gooey, melty mozzarella cheese) since dairy hasn’t seemed to be the problem in the past. It’s still the gluten that’s making me highly suspicious.
Soooooo, since my last post I lost ANOTHER 2 POUNDS!!! Go me! Today, I was able to get my walk in during the day — which was a HUGE time saver for my evening — since I only had two toddlers and one baby for daycare today, I bundled everyone up with coats, hats, gloves and giant, fluffy, fleece blankets, packed snacks and drinks, and walked a 5K around the neighborhood mid-morning. The highlight of the walk: we saw about 10 super fat wild turkeys, the kids squealed and shrieked and made them all waddle down the hill away from us. 😄
Honesty time…last week I had ZERO motivation. First time so far on this diet where I had the most overwhelming urge to eat nothing but junk food and candy all week — I didn’t, but I went to bed hungry several nights because I was craving all those bad foods so bad that I couldn’t even force myself to eat anything healthy. I also did not sleep well last week for some inexplicable reason, so having no energy and being dead tired seemed to encourage those sinful cravings for all things delicious, I mean, “unhealthy”. 😫
Good news though, I haven’t been craving pop for a quite a while now. #dontcallthepopsoda I have been craving tea a lot, though, so I should probably steep a giant gallon container to keep in the fridge.
Well, as stated earlier, I haven’t slept well lately. I’m going to take this chance to get my tea ready a little dinner tonight and oil up my feet for bed. Beau sour, mes amis!
