Boy, did I do well this weekend! Stayed on track despite the trays of bread and hummus and pizza and zucchini balls and hot chocolate and marshmallows and soft cheese and crackers and olives stuffed with feta and little bowls or chocolates!
I am finding that dinners are fine- they taste great, feel good making real food. BUT social events are hard. So much food I love to eat. I am a person who likes going for coffee and cake, or an ice cream. I socialise a lot with food and I have tended to indulge. So, I took my own snacks round to Kat's house today, it was fine eating my veggie sticks and spinach dip, I was coping quite well... until the zucchini balls arrived. I almost threw in the towel right there and then. I was having visions of me leaping on Annika and eating the balls right out of her hands! (that came out a little dirtier than I thought ha). Oh and at soccer- I was feeling low on sugar and couldn't stop thinking about snakes (the lolly kind not the alive kind) and THEN Tim is sitting there eating a lamington, A LA-MING-TON!! *drools*. Again, visions of me just taking a bite right out of his hands, well not his hands, the lamington, thankfully I am not craving human flesh yet. But despite my crazed visions, I stayed paleo and, except for some incessant staring at other peoples food, I handled today pretty well I think :-)
The who and why of it all
- Canberra, ACT, Australia
- Trying different ways to optimise life health and happiness by eating real food and bulding strength. I used to have migraines every fortnight that would put me out for days. I ate a lot of sugar in it's classic sweet form and in its filling bread/pasta form. I was always tired and weak but never overweight- so I never questioned my diet. Until someone else did. Now I barely ever get migraines, I am strong and getting stronger. I am more active than I have ever been.
