Day 2 Paleo with Juicing and mind games

Monday, May 20, 2013

Yesterday I decided that I just wanted to go back to paleo for a month. So Until June 17th I will be having a juice for breakfast, a juice snack and then 2 paleo meals with a heavy concentration on raw and cooked veggies.
The scale stayed the same today, but I had ham yesterday :D LOL
I do last longer exercising, so I did 45 min today.

I am hoping that the body will adjust to the changes, and the weight will continue to decrease. Even though the scale as remained between 2-3lbs over my lowest, I look like I lost more weight. So Inches are moving and the body is shifting. I love the new shape. I actually have a waist!!!
I am still sleeping well, but am noticing that I am not sleepy as early as was with the juicing.

Will be making Kale chips tonight to just have something crunchy to munch on.

What I am finding challenging is the following:
While on Juicing I had no problem saying no to eating things. But now that I am "allowed" to eat I am finding it hard to avoid things that caused issues before. So why is it that my brain is blocking my "60 days of fasting". I am eyeing chocolate - so I asked sis not to bring it in the house. I am avoiding honey, as I think it could trigger cravings. I am pushing waters and juices and fruit. I want for my brain to understand that Just because I have fears or dealing with "issues" (whether imaginary or real) that I no longer stuff them with food. Yet- it is there.

The one good thing with the 60 days is that my taste has changed. I miss the juices and look forward to my morning one. Then - I get these weird cravings, and I assume it is because I haven't chewed for such a long time_ and I take a bite(of whatever I am craving). It tastes like the most divine thing . By the third bite I want to spit it out. Ugh...

Ugh.. I am babbling again. LOL. So the point of today's rambling is that my brain is just totally fried. It doesn't understand why I am looking the way I do, why I don't like things I used to, that I think I like things and then spit them out, and why I have an obsessive thought of me going back to old habits. Say What????

LOL I think it is time to go paint.

    The fast definitely seems to have educated your taste buds for the better. I have tried intermittent fasting and I find that when I have less choices to make about food, I think about it less and I have less cravings. I think it is the choices that make us think too much about food and want it more!

    I wish wish wish my brain would just get it. Have some work to do on it.

    An old hiking buddy in NH is on paleo and loves it. EWG just published a report on meats, if you are interested I will send the talks about increases in food borne illness and choosing quality meats....

    I have often believed my weight issues have little of anything to do with what is on my fork it's always been about what is between my ears!!
    I find myself thinking, "I've been good, I DESERVE this (xyz), it's only a bite (or 10), what's one beer, what's one piece of choclate??" that thinking is really hard for me to hold in check, and I do struggle with it everyday - however, I also believe that balance is going to ultimately be the key to my success, failure is not an option. I've always given up on Mondays (I was bad when we xyz so why bother...etc...) but I'm trying to embrace Mondays with the thought that it's a new opportunity to continue with my journey. Summers are difficult and I know this, that's okay - I'm searching for balance...
    This is my journey with my goals and my opportunites to get back up!
    Thank you for stopping by my page today - it's been a tough day for us, we live near Dallas, our son and his wife live in Edmond (suburb of OKC), our daughter is expecting her third child (boy #2) anyday now. I'm sorta living with a suitcase packed, but constantly praying for the people in Oklahoma.
    Have a great week,
