Day 4

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Weight: 351.2
I've reached my goal of 1.5 lb for the week, and it's only day 4! yay!!

The pizza last night wasn't the best idea. I mean, it wasn't THAT bad; it was gluten-free, and I did stay in my calories, but the simple carbs just made me hungrier... all night i wanted to eat more carbs, I even wanted to get some candy, but thank goodness I didn't give in. I probably won't get pizza again any time soon. Why do that to myself? I will eat a low-carb, high-protein dinner tonight that won't spike my insulin so much.

Today I'm doing yoga and walking. I have some chicken breast that I am marinating in italian dressing mix, and I'll grill that and eat it over a salad with another tomato from my garden, and some guacamole.

I had a long talk with my grandmother last night and it made me feel so much better. I am so grateful to have such a strong, wise, and supportive woman in my life. I hadn't talked to her (except in emails) for almost a year; I don't know why I didn't call her sooner -- I wanted to, but I always think people are angry at me because it's taking me a long time to finish school... I just get overwhelmed and stressed out, and I seclude myself... I need to learn to reach out. I'm proud that I took the step to do so last night.

Walks for the week: 3/5
Yoga/Strength Training: 2/3
lbs lost this week: ............. 1.8 lb
lbs lost since July 20th: ...... 1.8 lb
lbs lost total: .................. 67.8 lb

    That sugar addiction cycle... ruled my life until October of 2012. After that last epic sugar binge, I knew I had to completely eradicate refined sugar/carbs from my diet.

    Good luck! It is a tough addiction to break free from.

    Very appropriate to come across your perpetual cycle of sugar addiction. I have just read the sugar detox article on Spark and it's all about putting sugar back into the treat category...weekly maybe..not daily. emoticon

    Why do you eat the pizza? Because it tastes sooooo gooooooood! bah. I wish it didn't. I fall victim to the sugar addiction, and also find that when I start eating simple carbs like breads it is harder to stop.

    I'm super simple carb sensitive too! A little carb leads to a lot of carbs for me. It's like an addiction. Good for you for staying strong and not giving in to the carb snowball!
