Ok, well, it isn't like I completely went off of Paleo, but over the last month I have had a few pints of ice cream, some cheetos, a few Tony's frozen pizzas, a grilled-cheese sandwich and here and there a bit of something I'm not supposed to have: some barley, beans, etc.
The effects of these digressions are: 1) fatigue 2) my ongoing sickness started after my first break from Paleo 3) I no longer feel like I'm slimming down (you know, that feeling...not just what you see on the scale) and 4) I've gained back about 4 pounds.
What I have actually found more interesting, is that despite these digressions, I didn't go completely off of Paleo. Being on Paleo, makes me want to stay on Paleo. Is it because it makes me feel so good? Probably. But I haven't done anything to get back on track 100%, so that's where I am now. Day 3.
I'm blurring the lines a bit with the milk and cheese, and I did buy some soy morning sausages because otherwise, I don't have breakfast. EVER. Two of those sausages with 2 eggs = I'm excited for breakfast. Otherwise, I pass. I'm trying not to eat them every day. Maybe when I get used to cooking breakfast I'll be able to switch to a turkey sausage, but right now, those smells in the morning are just too much to handle.
My goal for May weight-wise is to get under 180.
My last day at work is the 19th (technically the 21st, but I don't work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays). I am so excited. I am so ready to start something new! The owners are being pretty nice. I haven't been spreading the word. I think that is more respectful. But I tell you what, I get butterflies thinking about it being over!
Here is to a fabulous May for everyone out there!
