Ask me a question!

Monday, June 27, 2011

So I thought I would do something new, I'm a bit bored of posting my food logs so instead I would love to hear any questions you guys might have.  I'll answer each week depending on the amount of questions I get, I'm not entirely sure if there will even be any questions but if any of you are stuck or just think I might be able to help then I will do my best.  Don't be shy I'd love to hear from you :)

Too many Double Downs!!

Thursday, June 9, 2011

This week has improved from last week, I cannot say however that my food choices have improved all that much, some definate areas need tightening up.  Not a weight loss week at all which doesn't surprise me.  My consumption of KFC double downs and non primal chocolate has become a little too often for my normal allowance of 80/20 rules.  I think I need to try and make a consious effort to reduce those indugences....So I have posted my food journal after saying last week I couldn't be bothered which I still kind of can't but I thought it might help me to be a little more accountable again, seems I need a little focus to get my food patterns back in line.  Hope you enjoy the journal, sorry it's certainly not a good week of strict primal by all means.

It's been a crap week!

Thursday, June 2, 2011

I've had a crap week, I'm premenstrual, have a sore throat and feel very fluey! I've been battling rampant sugar cravings all week, after indulging over the weekend in some hot chips with my dinner followed by some cookies and cream ice cream, caramel steamed pudding and hot chocolate sauce but it was soooo good.  Will I ever learn....probably not.  I know that the sugar cravings will always come after ingesting the non primal treats but I don't think that will ever stop me from indulging just a little.  I have come a long way, when I used to go nuts and eat soo much of it thinking I may as well do this properly, to now I can just have a meals worth and not drag it out for a couple of days like I once did.  I should be happy that I have learned some self control really but unfortunately I still feel quite vulnerable to the grip sugar and starches can have on my eating.  I am human after all and I shouldn't expect so much from myself.

So since I have eaten a bit of rubbish and the added water retention I always get at that time of the month my weight is 67.3 this week!  Ah well, I'll eventually get to my goal and I'm sure when I get there I will still find some kind of self improvement to work on, when I was 54kgs back when I was 23 after doing Atkins I remember thinking well I'm thin, now what... I do think that unless you have self love and true happiness that no number on the scale will ever give you the happiness you think it will.  In saying that I don't think there's anything wrong with having goals and reaching them, when I'm slim I do feel so much better about myself, I love to be able to fit all the clothes I adore so much and it sure makes exercise and life in general much more comfortable.  I love that I don't have to dodge photos like I used to and I feel pretty happy in my skin most of the time, we all have down days, I think that's just part of being a female, gotta love those hormones :)

I haven't recorded my food, think I'm over it for the moment.  Maybe I'll start back up when I feel the urge but for now sorry it's just not at the fore front of my mind.
I have however as always taken photos of a few of my meals, nothing all that exciting but a bit of eye candy for you all.  Enjoy your Queens Birthday weekend!!

Almond crusted Double down, pretty amazing!!
