30-day Challenge: Day Eight

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Honestly, I have not hit my stride yet and Iím struggling. Iím craving ice cream, chocolate, peanut butter, and pasta. Mmmm Ö mostly ice cream! Yesterday was AWFUL! I was invited to a wine tasting by a friend, and since I tend to skip out on any type of social interaction, I decided to go. I was able to control myself and only tried three wines (totally not worth the $10 admission, though) and I only ate a few grapes and strawberry instead of the mini quiches and barbecue chicken they had sitting out. Because of the crappy spread there, I was talked into going to a restaurant with the group. We went to a place called ďBJís BrewhouseĒ and the test startedÖ

I was able to control my cravings and order paleo-friendly chicken lettuce wrapsÖ but then came dessert. Really I want to say that I controlled myself and passed up on dessert or had a fruit cup, but I cannot. I had a gluten-free chocolate chip pizookie (cookie baked like a pizza) and it had vanilla bean ice-cream on top! I feel you all judging me, I deserve it.

Nonetheless, like Iíve said before every day is a new opportunity and I was not going to let my stupid lack-of-willpower completely ruin this challenge. Let me tell you, though, I felt completely awful by the time I started to drive home and went straight to bed. I cannot believe that only one non-paleo meal made my stomach that upset, yet it helps solidify why I am doing this challenge.

Iím changing my life and strengthening my willpower. No more power-less Juliane. This challenge will change more than my waistline, hopefully!

    Hey you! No judgments here! As long as you keep trying, that's all that counts. You're doing great! I have a couple of friends who lost A LOT of weight & lowered their blood pressure & cholesterol living mostly Paleo (mostly is the key work there. LOL) They still enjoy occasional emoticon emoticon treats & are still losing.
