Day 8

Today was kind of a continuation of yesterday. I started off my day well with a shake. Then eggs and left over taco meat for lunch. Then I made my chicken enchiladas with green sauce for my friends who just had twins. I made extra for my family and also ate it myself. What I hate about this diet is having to make everything from scratch, lack of variety especially when I am making food for non Paleo eaters. Tomorrow I am going on a walk with Jen and will stay on track. I just need to adjust my attitude and rid my house of all candy.


Day 7

I’ve always hated Halloween…. I was doing great today with my eating. Saying no to candy over and over. Until, on the way home from trick or treating, while my husband drove and I held my boys’ candy in my lap… I broke down. Boo 😦 I ate not one, but probably 8 or 10 little candies. I felt like a starving person finally given food. Anyways, that was my day.

Day 6

I had an unexpected house guest today. It is getting hard to stay on track, but I am still on board.

Day 5

I had an incredibly busy day. No pictures, but stayed on track.

Day 4

Today was much more relaxing then yesterday. I started out the morning by trying out a new recipe, Carrot Cake Donuts from PaleOMG. These were not my favorite. I think because the word donut was in the title I was expecting something sweeter and lighter. I liked it without the frosting, if I had been prepared for a carrot cake muffin…

I also made some sweet potato, sausage, egg scramble and chopped up some pineapple.

For lunch I put together a chicken feta salad I bought from Costco. The pre-made dressing was made with honey… We didn’t love the dressing but the rest of the salad was great.

I was still hungry for the rest of the afternoon, so I snacked on an apple, piece of jerky and a shake.

For dinner I made spaghetti squash and meat sauce. Mmmm. Just what I needed. I tried out making raw applesauce in the vitamix for the first time and me and the kids gobbled it up. I had enough energy afterwards to clean the kitchen without feeling like I was being tortured.

Feeling completely satisfied…

It was a good day.
