My Fall Restart
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
This summer I really dropped the ball. We ended up eating a lot of junk just so we could eat cheaply. I stopped coming on here and logging. After I hurt myself (again) while exercising, I basically just stopped moving. The consequences are that my kids think things that used to be treats are now every day foods. I gained 5 lbs. The worst though is that we all feel like crap. None of us has the energy we did. I'm having trouble sleeping again. Sarane is having constipation issues again. It seems like we all got sick at the drop of a hat. It's just crazy how bad I feel.
So yesterday I started back on here logging my food. I also started eating Primal again. I am making weekly goals. This week's goal is to eat Primal and stick to it. Now I confess, yesterday I I made the girls pb&j. I didn't even think about it when I licked the jam off the knife. I'm not going to be uber hard on myself for it, but I do have to realize that I need to be conscious of what I am consuming. Still I had a good day. No cravings to make me go crazy yet.
Now for exercising, well I am holding off on that till I am no longer sick. Or at least till I can walk without coughing up a lung.
I have a recipe review. Last night I made this. paleoaholic.com/paleo/pa
I did make a few changes to suite our tastes. I used EVOO instead of sesame oil. I shredded the carrots. I added a bit of yellow bell pepper and mushrooms. I really liked it. I have been craving Chinese takeout and this did the trick. Elora ate it up too. Sarane ate everything but the broccoli so in picky temperamental 3 yo speak, that means it's good. Shane is still asleep so I don't know whether he liked it or not. One of the many downsides to him working nights.
I currently have a big pot of bone broth simmering. It's only been on for about 12 hrs, but my apartment smells wonderful! Just about another 60 hrs till I can cool it. I can't wait! This is my first attempt to make it. I am using beef bones, celery, carrots and onion.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day and blessed be!
