Tales of A Paleo Mom


on November 1, 2013

To be honest…where to start…

Here is a post I just realized I never posted last weekend….

I woke up with the goal of taming the sugar beast today.  I planned on fasting since I ate a crap load of sugary, belly-aching treats last night.  I am amazed that I was able to sleep.  Fasting went fine…coffee with just a touch of coconut milk blended in my Bullet.  Mmmmmm…look forward to that every morning.  Then I had leftover spaghetti squash quiche and Greek yogurt with some seed/coconut mix thing for lunch.  I ate a green tipped banana in the late afternoon.  AND….then all hell broke lose once I walked in the door at home.  Sugar.  Sugar.  Sugar.  AND.more.sugar.  Ughhhh!  What the heck?  It was out of control.  Oh and then I ate dinner…steak fajitas with bell peppers and onions.

So tomorrow is really the day.  I really don’t see any other way than to commit to something, so 21 day sugar detox it is.  Off to do some prep work.  Meal planning and being prepared is a must!  Be back tomorrow with a plan!

Well..the sugar detox…yea…that lasted a day.  And my eating has been out.of.control.  Things I would not normally eat are finding their way into my mouth.  It is gross.  I am surprised I am not doubled over or running to the bathroom every 5 minutes (TMI)  but really it has been that bad.  My sleep is all messed up and my face looks worse than my 13 year old hormonal daughter.  It  makes me a grumpy b—-.

What really makes me feel angry is that I have been pretty consistent with working out.  I do the Strong Curves workouts four days which is perfect and I love the workouts.  On the off days, I try to do other activities (walk/jog or HIIT)  if I feel like it which I haven’t since I have been eating crap.  This will become a vicious cycle eventually leading to me not working out at all and eating crap.  Then I get all angry with myself.  This happens especially around this time of year.  It is definitely not a healthy food relationship.  Working hard to sabotage myself with my diet. D.U.M.B.

And I think I am a sugar addict!  Is there such a thing!?

Well, tomorrow is November 1st, and what better time to get this crazy eating under control.  I tend to do better to when I start at the beginning of the month.  While I am not going to go super crazy and do a 21 DSD or Whole 30 just yet, I am going to start getting back to eating real, whole foods (I sound like a broken record!)  FOR.REAL.

Game Plan:

  1. Meal planning
  2. Meal prepping
  3. Eating enough
  4. Eating more carbs (wondering if I am not getting enough especially on workout days)?
  5. Managing stress better (how!?!?…no idea yet.  TBD.)
  6. Doing the “red x” calendar again


So that’s it. Off to meal prep for a successful day one!
