The Candy Post

Well I've done it and bought candy.  Ugh I ate a ton tonight just to get over the fact that I'm not into it but I am and can't get rid of the nerds and the laffy taffy.  Ugh!!!!  I'm getting rid of everything else though.  I figure this might be a lesson to me never to buy candy again.  I am going to take it to work with me for a while and eat it at first break or second break. I'm going to try to get rid of the rest somehow.  Maybe at my meeting Monday night.

Otherwise I am doing well and was losing 2 lbs and losing tummy but the candy probably has to go.  I don't know why I bought it really I don't.  Ugh.

Weekend Paleo Try

Felt great this weekend.  Was able to get into a pair of pants that I haven't fit in a while.  Haven't tried them on in a while and as the day went on it seemed I fit them better and better.  Rash is gone that I've had on my neck for years and redness on my chest.  Splurged a little this weekend though and had pizza for dinner two nights in a row.  Had hard boiled eggs and hot dogs.  I know not the best but it is a food I guess.  Might have another hotdog before I go to bed.

Paleo Diet 2 days after last post

Had a great Halloween with the kiddos.  Had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Then today, I splurged and allowed myself a kit kat.  I was at the end of a long 8.5 hour shift at work.  Very bad that I didn't pick up some candy that was FREE the day before; if I was going to splurge and waste $1.15 on some candy.  It tasted better than ever.

I still think I'm going to lose weight on this thing.  I'm not eating like I was...the honey buns and the oatmeal crème cookies, etc.  Hopefully I'll report some weight loss in the next two weeks.  Had eggs for dinner tonight with string cheese and I know kinda bad but I had cherry Pepsi.  I don't know why but a little Pepsi or coke that is cherry every once in a while helps.  I think it combats some further cravings or that is my hope.

Paleo Diet First Week

Okay I am going to start blogging about my new paleo diet adventure!  I'm going to try and post once a week about it if not more.  Feeling great and have lots of energy.  I am not completely following the diet and am allowing myself to still have milk with cereal in the morning.  Right now that happens to be honey bunches of oats with almonds.  I am also eating string cheese at lunch which I also know is not paleo diet compliant.  And oh gosh darn it I am eating protein bars/paydays for a midmorning snack.  So it is not completely complaint...everything in moderation I believe.

But otherwise I am doing well.  I am eating salad for lunch with smoked turkey and I am eating good healthy dinners as well.  I am NOT at all tempted by carbs or sugar and have 0 cravings this week so far for them.  Pretty awesome I must say!

There are actually tempting things in my kitchen right now that I bought earlier and that I have no desire to eat at all.  No more oatmeal cookies...you know the ones by Little Debbie, that have the cream in the middle!  No more sugar cookies that tasted like crap anyways and no more freaking honey buns which God knows what was doing to my arteries and my obese weight.

Yes I am already obese.  I weight around 190.  I've gained 30 lbs in 5 years from a difficult divorce and loss of custody of my two beautiful daughters.  This has allowed for emotional eating and I am going to nick that in the bud as well this month and longer!  I am going to have stuffing on Thanksgiving though.  Sometimes you have to draw the line somewhere.  I mean I am not completely crazy.  Tomorrow I am also going to have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich because I am going trick or treating with my children and that is a fast fix.  Hey I'm far from perfect and am definitely not going to try to be.  I cannot do something 100%.  I totally believe in moderation.

If anybody gets this far and is reading this.  Thanks I appreciate it.

Oh and Happy Halloween!  I may be tempted by some candy but as long as the kids don't force it down me I am fine.  LOL I think they will want it for themselves.  Just have that feeling.  :)

Well it's been a while since I blogged.  I am feeling a little depressed but I have my daughters tomorrow for Memorial Day and we have a jammed packed fun day planned!  We are taking them home first to play in the pool we inflated over the weekend and then we are taking them to the Endicott pool that they love.  I need to teach these girls to swim but we will see.

I am lonely, bored and depressed without them but that is okay.  I have my mom but she is no fun and still treats me like a 16 year old.  I am still getting through my days.  Looking forward to tomorrow in particular and then I have a brief vacation to Lehighton, PA and then Atlantic City, NJ planned.  That should be fun.  My mom and I are not getting along that great since I am now on Family Leave.

That's right.  I left my job for family leave due to depression.  They were going to fire me anyway and this was the best solution.  It's been a LONG week without work let's just say and this is my first of many.  I hope not too many.  I am going to a meeting on Tuesday with Vesid.  That should be good and then I will go to workforce when I get back from my vacation.

Well a blog for another time.  That's all I have in me for tonight.
