Oh hi there. Miss me? It’s been a crazy week. I got back from Montana Friday night and went straight to New Hampshire for the weekend. Montana was sad, but it was great to be out there with my family. And NH was super relaxing and was a perfect reset. The only problem? I’M STILL NOT EATING SUGAR!
Well, that’s sort of a lie. I introduced some fruit (bananas and apples) sparingly back into my diet. I went a week without any fruit at all, and my system was getting a little wonky. I won’t go into detail… but you get the idea…. (butseriouslyifanyonehasdonethisbeforeandcoudntstopshittingpleasesendmeanemailsowedonthavetodiscussbowelmovementsonmyblog) So ANYHOOOO. A little bit of fruit is back into the mix. I was really worried about being away this weekend and not being able to prepare my own food, but I managed okay. Especially in Montana. Hellooo bison burgers. I’ve also been carrying around plantain chips and trail mix just to have with me on hand. So what have I been eating?
Breakfast: I normally have a protein shake mixed with fruit (AKA sugar, sugar, sugar) so this was the biggest change for me. I’ve been mixing hard boiled eggs with avocado, and eat it on my way to work. I usually don’t get a break until mid morning, so this really fills me up and keeps me satisfied.
Snacks: Plantain chips, nuts, veggie chips, kale chips, almond butter, leftovers. Not all at once.
Lunch/Dinner: I’ve been doing a lot of cooking lately, really simple stuff like a boat load of veggies and sticking a bunch of meat in a crockpot. I’m sort of over sharing recipes because literally everything I cook is from PaleOMG or from my newly acquired Well Fed cookbook. But both of those women are geniuses so you should probably just cook everything they say to cook. K, cool.
Desserts: NONE. WAH.

I have to say, I’m sleeping like a rock at night, have more energy throughout the day, and during my classes. I haven’t re-weighed myself since I started, but I feel a bit slimmer (I’m not trying to do this to lose weight, but wouldn’t mind shedding a light layer..). Definitely am going to TRY to stick with it for another 2 weeks. I think having bananas will be my saving grace. I’m going to a holiday party this weekend (I’ve purposely been trying to be a hermit so I’m not tempted..) so that will be the real test. I could care less about alcohol.. but holiday treats are a whole other story.
How have you guys survived this before? Any tips? Do you not want to be my friend anymore since I talked about poop on the blog? I understand. Are you even more upset because now I talked about it twice?
