51 - Beck day 2

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I feel like I have to start this blog out by sending out thanks - thank you to everyone for sticking with me over the last few weeks and months, even when I haven't been able to reciprocate as I'd like to. I can slowly feel myself starting to stabilize again and I look forward to continuing to catch up with what you've all been up to!

Shout out to the Argentina football team - Germany really earned it but boy, oh boy, did Argentina put up a fight! Great job :)

Yesterday was fairly "easy" for me to get through food-wise. I know my calories were through the roof but everything was Paleo-approved:
1) almonds
2) dried mango (not the sugary kind)
3) salad with feta and a sugar-free type ranch dressing from Trader Joe's.
4) chicken
5) potatoes roasted with olive oil and fresh oregano
6) ketchup - sweetened with agave, 100% Paleo and delicious, to boot!

Especially when first getting on track with Paleo, I tend to overeat because I'm fighting the cravings and sugar withdrawals in the first 3-5 days.

So overall a good day for food. I also finished up with house stuff and folded the 3 baskets of laundry I'd accumulated. Overall, a good day. I rested (my ankle has been bad again) but not to the point where I was comatose. As usual when doing Paleo, I didn't hit that mid-afternoon slump and didn't take a 3-hour nap at 3 pm.

I've been sleeping better at night because I wear ear plugs, but yesterday I slept until 10 am! Yikes! Well, I got up to give the cats their wet food because we all know what sticklers for time cats are...that was at about 5:50 am. So overall I slept about 10 hours and it felt great.

Beck Day 2 - pick two reasonable diets
1) Paleo - obviously
2) Let's just call this the "no cheat" diet - I am NOT one of those people who can have a small cheat and get back on track

Today I work 11-4 and have Paleo-friendly leftovers to eat when I get home.

Have a nice day!

    I didn't finish the 6 weeks of the Beck Diet Book the first time around either, but I did finish it this last time in March/April. It's incredibly hard work to get through but totally worth it. I hope it helps you as much as it's helped me these last few months.

    We did the same thing- got up the past couple of day and fed the fur babies and then went back to bed. Slept around 12 hours on Saturday. Unheard of for me. LOL.

    2 diets? hmmmm. I usually do hybridized diets because of my many varied medical problems

    1. the diet my doctor put me on - high protein, lower carb, moderate to high fat diet for hypoglycemia.

    2. primal/paleo/gluten free

    I love Trader Joes, but have been staying away because I love it there a little too much. (smiling) Have a fun day.
