A Chunk of Something!

When you find yourself pushing through and using caffeine or sugar to keep going, this is the time to listen to your innate ultradian rhythm and take a rest.

One of the easiest ways to get off track when you are changing your eating and exercising habits is to have a chunk of something get in the way. This chunk can be a work situation, a family crisis, a project, dating, or like me recently – travel!

On the road!

On the road!

I really enjoyed my trip to Sisters, Oregon and had a blast. I was gone for 10 days and although the food there was healthy, I also was with friends and two glasses of wine would take up a third of my points (yes I use the WW point system when I record food) for the day.

Well, one thing I found out is that as soon as I got home, my body craved to go back to eating the way I had before. I eat less food and because I am careful with sugar, I rarely have cravings.

Having my scheduled appointment with Luke Brady at the gym with was helpful. It kept my focus on my health. I don’t feel like I have been off track at all. Even in the interim while traveling, I knew I was on a path forward and so taking a little break and having wine with my friends was not an issue at all.

Focusing ahead on the goal and knowing I am in process and going to get there is helpful. Now, a week after I returned from my trip, my weight is back to where I was when I left and I am happy as can be.

This blog has also motivated me to resume my blog on my website CandessCampbell.com

Grain Free

Day Seven

Feeling really achy and slow today. Did not adjusting to the detox very well. Skipped my morning tea and we will see how it goes. It was a little cooler this morning and really enjoyed when Domingo walked me.

Continue to be grain free. I don’t have a difficult time letting go of bread. I would mostly only eat David’s Killer Bread anyway, but what I find hard is what to eat for dinner. I am saying no to pasta, Life cereal (left behind when my granddaughter was here) and popcorn. I would eat popcorn for dinner a few times a month. So I had pickled vegetables from a jar, spicy seaweed, and a wedge of weight watchers cheese.

Has to be both – this and that!

Day Six

Busy work day today. Domingo walked me. I realize I need to not separate days into exercise days and workdays. There cannot be an either/or. There can be a both! Still detoxing a lot and am caught between how good it is for me and how I want to feel better and have more energy. Ugh!

 Wasn’t too hard to be grain free today. Instead of eggs and a piece of toast I fixed eggs scrambled with spinach and the peppers in my yard. I added some cheese. It was filling and less points (weight watchers system.)

 I don’t do weight watchers right now, but have an app on my phone that calculates the points. I use it off and on.
