Last night I packed up enough food for breakfast and lunch (and snacks) all week, if needed. I have decided that I am cutting out gluten, dairy, yeast, and sugar. I am not giving up coffee and I will be eating goat cheese and yogurt.
Yesterday the hubby and I went shopping for some diet-friendly dinner foods. He is being very supportive.
I mainly hope this will make a difference in how I feel and my psoriasis, but i also do better calorie-wise when I am watching what exactly I eat, so I'm expecting weight loss as well.
Scheduled to exercise Tues and Thurs this week.
Ready, set, go!
EDIT: Apparently I am not cutting out yeast, because I am not cutting out fruit or coffee. Oh well!

I am planning to go on a an elimination diet, like Body Ecology. I say "planning" because even though I wanted to start yesterday, I realized that we have so much food in the house that has to get eaten first. So I am eating the diet during the day and regular at night.
I'm confused about a few things on Body Ecology. I didn't see anything about eliminating corn or soy, nor whether goat's milk was okay. They also include mushrooms in the shopping list, but mushrooms have yeast, which is usually eliminated in these types of diets. So I'm not sure what I want to cut out, but I DO know that there is no way I am eating no cheese, so goat cheese and yogurt I will be eating.
Started exercising yesterday with my friend, and we plan to do so three times per week. Go us!

Why does my friend always buy flop cake? It is of the devil. It is crumbly and filo-dough-y, and full of sweet soft squishy cream. Oh dear I want some now. And Pub Cheese, oh Pub Cheese, why are you so tasty and cheesy and soft on a nice crunchy cracker?
Oh breakfast eggs, why are you so soggy and bland? I blame you for encouraging me to run to the store and buy more delicious Pub Cheese. Wait, what did you say as I gummed your soggy nutritious tasteless bits? You think that I should stop by the Swedish bakery and get a flop cake of my VERY OWN? Why must you work to weaken my resolve? Why must all my friends and my food be aligned against me?
Breakfast: WW sourdough and cream cheese, melon
Snack: Chocolate chip granola bar
Lunch: Chicken/olive oil, leftover buttered veggies (washed off)
Snack: Iced coffee (sweetened and w/milk)
Dinner: Pub cheese, multigrain crackers, flop cake

I'm sorry for not having been around lately! I missed all my Sparkfriends! I've been so busy that I haven't had time for tracking. I have been walking a lot, but I don't feel like the eating as as under control as I'd like. Wait, let me get the food log out of the way first:
Breakfast: Eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms
Snack: M&Ms dark
Lunch: Chicken cooked w/olive oil, veggies in butter sauce (microwave bag)
Snack: TJ's chocolate chip granola bar, Banana, homemade iced coffee
Dinner: Hamburger (Laura's Lean) w/white cheddar, WW bun, peas w/butter
Dessert: Slice of chocolate cake, one cookie
So, my regular problem isn't even the occasional non-restrained meal, it's the junk. No matter how much good healthy food I have around, I want some chocolate, ice cream, or a cookie. And I know that in moderation this is OK, but aside from like, one piece of chocolate or something similar, I really don't want to be eating a serious dessert every day. I brough chocolate chip granola bars at Trader Joe's because I thought that could help with the sweet craving, but it is a sweet, too!! That isn't the solution!
What do you do when the "I want a sweet or chocolate" craving hits? I do NOT want to eat any "diet" foods or artificial sweeteners. Fruit is good, but it's not a COOKIE! I've never been a huge sweet fiend (food itself has always been my downfall), but often when I'm done with a big meal, I have a sweet craving (just like an addict). Are there lessers of two evils? Is it just a matter of locking myself up and gnawing on my arm until I break the habit?
