It's sabotage I tell you!


Tuesday, January 31, 2012

I thought long and hard about it...Okay, not really. But my daily weigh-ins since the time hubby came home had been relatively consistent around 161.2 +/- .3lbs or so. My girl SALBATROSS has been about the same way too. Something in me clicked... I've been sabotaging my own efforts! It's like, I got below the dreaded 170lbs, and got close to 160lbs, but never below it...and I think I was secretly throwing in the towel thinking, "I'm just always gonna be 161.2lbs..."

Yes, my eating has been whack, thankfully the workouts have been consistent. Since my surgery is delayed (no date yet, we're in a holding pattern--that's a whole 'nother blog right there!) I've been trying to push myself to keep working out as hard as I can for as long as I can, cause once I go on that table, it's gonna be a slow ride of recovery...

A group of ladies from church started getting together last Saturday to do a "Made to Crave" bible study. It's a book, basically written to describe our craving for something in life is meant for God, not for food. PERFECT for me, the emotional eater. That day, I met another Paleo woman-such a blessing. She's been encouraging me to stay strong...and Sunday I tried to stick to it, but caved with some leftover pizza, that tasted way better Saturday night (you know, that "last junk food meal" we always go for before we start fresh...) Monday was my first day strict Paleo, and this morning it was awesome to weigh in at 160.8! We'll see how tomorrow goes before I update the weigh in. But that showed me that I CAN do it, and I'm GONNA do it!

Tonight I made a delicious grain free brownie cheesecake swirl thingy. Not Paleo, but not 100% crap food either. Organic pure cocoa powder, eggs, (I forgot the almond butter), coconut crystals, honey, vanilla, some dairy/soy/nut free chocolate chips & organic cream cheese). Delicious-ness. And I'm not perfectly Paleo since OBVIOUSLY that has sweets... but let me tell you, it's a whole lot better than those blasted mint OREOS! :D

Anyway. I'm excited for tomorrow morning. Well, we're having a ruck march for work, and I can't ruck because it strains my jaw, but I'll be walking with my uniform on (aka in my boots)... and my delicious breakfast afterwards will be... dun dun dun: bison sausage with avocado and raw sauerkraut. That's right people, I read an article on Balanced Bites about how good raw sauerkraut is for you (raw just means it's fermented naturally, without eat, so literally, water and salt and cabbage)... and it's a natural probiotic!! Helps the tummy, and no dairy!!! And I prepped my green smoothie for tomorrow: red kale, collard greens, swiss chard, celery, apple, pear, ginger, and I'll throw in frozen mango and pineapple. Lunch will be steamed spinach with chicken picatta, and snacks will be kale chips.

Night night ya'll!

    I'm so proud of you darling! (Sorry it's taken me a couple days to catch up on your bloggies!) So much of weight loss is mental, I think that is why I am constantly doing self reflection/analysis, blah blah... just know that I am here for you and we gotta stick together to get thru this weight loss journey! No more sabotaging yourself darling! You are so amazing! :-)

You are on the right path! Keep working to make your diet healthier. According to Mark Sisson in his book, "The Primal Blueprint," your body composition is determined 80% by what you eat and 20% by how you exercise! Keep at it! You are doing good!

    You are doing so GREAT! And... you KNOW you can break through that "barrier", 'cuz you are right there!
Can't wait to hear the good news that you're, like, 159.5 or something!!!

And I just have to say that some of your food sounds SO yummy (like this cheesecake thing you made - love my sweets!) and then some of it I am so unable to imagine. Not saying anything bad, but kale and pineapple? Together in a shake with celery? Wow - you are one brave girl.

Anyway, you inspire me always with all you share so thanks for it all. I still haven't even gotten around to trying the cauliflower "fried rice" thing!
Keep up the good work, Ms. Paleo!!
