    18 Nov 13: Another weekend of falling off the wagon regarding candy and ice cream (especially yesterday). I know its that TOM but I have got to get this under control. I'm not sure what the answer is but I need to find it. I know part of it is boredom eating, but I can't stay busy 24/7.

      5 Dec 13: Well, my eating has been a bit better. I did pretty well on Thanksgiving, but did indulge in some chocolate pie and cheesecake. But I overdosed on pie and cheesecake over the weekend. Not beating myself up over it though. Still on the hormonal roller coaster, but I expect it won't change anytime soon.

      On a fun note. my kids, granddaughter, dog and I participated in the Turkey Day 5k. It was a lot of fun, but a little chilly waiting for the start.



      My shirt says, "Life's short, let's eat the pie first!" and I have a turkey hat with running shoes on.

        22 Dec13: my daughter, granddaughter had planned on doing the Christmas Run yesterday, but the road conditions were dicey and I decided it would be better to stay home and run with my dog in the snow. The snow was about 2 inches in most places and drifted higher in others. My dog had a great time rolling and running in the snow. The thing I had forgotten was how tiring running in snow is. It's like running in sand. But we both had a great time and were tired when our 5 miles was done.

            Thanks, Annie.

            30 Dec 13: I had last week off work and apparently decided it would be a good time for the "wagon" wheels to come off. Definitely hormone related as I am "that age" now. By Saturday morning I had had enough of eating crap and decided it was time to get back to eating healthy. Bunny Tracks ice cream and Reeses trees are just not on the healthy list. So I managed to do well the rest of the weekend and kept the junk to one chocolate covered strawberry and a handful of maple syrup pecans each day. Not 100% clean, but close enough. I have got to get this reined in. My working out is fine, the same really, but my diet needs cleaning up.

              I've decided to do a Whole 30 starting on Jan. 1st. I'm going to try completely eliminating dairy during that time and see what happens. I've gotten into a bad habit of eating too much butter and overdoing cheese. Nuts will be on my "keep it to a bare minimum" list.

              I'm tired of the way my clothes fit and how I feel. Its time to clean things up!

                1 Jan 14: Day 1 of the whole 30. Weight 148, not too surprising but not good. Today was good food wise. I already feel better just knowing I'm doing something positive for myself.

                  I am staring my first Whole 30 tomorrow. Have you done/attempted one before?

                    No. I just thought it would be a good way to get back on track. The biggest difficulty for me will be foregoing butter. I know you can use clarified butter, but I'm trying not to as I was eating way too much.

                      2 Jan 14: Day 2 of the whole 30. I'm not going to post everyday but I had a few observations. I did steamed veggies with a little olive oil instead of butter. Not bad. I think its do-able. However, I had a sweet potato with nothing but a little salt. It definitely needs a little something. I may try just a drizzle of avocado oil or break down and make some clarified butter. I still feel chubby of course but mentally, I feel so much better. When I would go on my ice cream and candy frenzy, it was interesting to note how I would become cranky and depressed. Its so much better when I eat clean.

                      Looking forward to my run this afternoon with my 4-legged running buddy.

                        29 Jan 14: Day 29 of the Whole 30. I ended up using clarified butter and ghee for my sweet potatoes. But I was able to keep it to a reasonable amount. I also had a little almond butter on occasion. I weighed myself this morning: 144.8. So a loss of a little over 3 pounds. Doesn't sound like much but I feel so much better. That, and the fact that I didn't have any cravings for that TOM is a big win in my book! I didn't follow the Whole 30 100%, as I didn't have breakfast within an hour of rising or always have veggies for breakfast, but other than that, I was compliant. The sugar dragon is in hibernation and thats what I was going for. I'm very happy with the results so far. I plan on continuing this way at least through February and probably after that.

                          1 Feb 14: still mostly following the whole 30, but I did have regular butter (grass fed/organic of course) on my sweet potato last night. I kept it to a reasonable amount though.

                          I actually tried eating before my run this morning. I had a fried egg before we went out and had some sweet potato, 1/2 a grass fed beef hotdog and my collagen hydrolysate after the run (5.3 miles). I did feel better during the run, but I don't know if I can attribute it to the egg or not. Next time I'm at the co-op, I'll get some canned tuna without soy for a post run snack.

                            5 Feb 14: still experimenting with things. Had a small can of tuna and a little sweet potato after my run yesterday. I also had 1/2 a cup of white rice with dinner. I thought I'd try bumping my carbs up a little and see how that feels. I'm going to 4 days a week running now and thinking pretty hard about a HM in May. It's funny how something like eating rice makes me a little nervous. I want to fuel my workouts, but definitely don't want to gain weight.

                              8 Feb 14: Went skiing yesterday with hubby and friends. I knew the lodge didn't have anything healthy. I ate a big breakfast (sausage, eggs and sweet potato). When we took a break at the lodge, hubby and friends had burgers and fries. I ate half a burger patty of hubby's with cheese and later, ate the big salad I brought (spinach, carrots, red pepper, green pepper, tomatoes with olive oil and some salt). It worked out really well. I was hungry when we got home and ate a banana, sardines and some almond butter. Kind of a strange combination, but it worked.

                              I got run into by a snowboarder yesterday. He got out of control and ran into me. We both took a tumble. I hit my head, but thank God I had a helmet on. So other than a slight headache for awhile, no damage was done.

                              Today I'm taking my dog for a run in the snow. He absolutely loves it and it gives me great joy to see him enjoying it so much.

                                13 Feb 14: Well I passed my one year primal anniversary on the 10th. I honestly can't imagine eating any other way now. Although I'm following the PHD a little more as I've added in white rice. I'm going to weigh myself the end of the month to see if there's any change. I ran sprints uphill on Monday and rather enjoyed it. I think I like the challenge. Don't know if my dog appreciated it as much though. But he's always happy to get out for a run.

                                I'm hoping to do a half marathon on April 13th. Some family things may not work out for me to do it, but I'm starting my training anyway.
