So a confession. Although I do not weigh regularly (I have had to work on this compulsion that the number is everything), I did step on the scale August first. Much to my chagrine it read just under 300. I stepped on today 8/8 and back at 280. Now I am no fool to believe I lost 20 pounds but what I do know is that I have lost INFLAMMATION which is almost as good. On a side note.. I think I am in ketosis although I did not seek it intentionally (for me its seems hard to get there when you want to be there) and I am just going to kind of ride this out and see if I can burn some fat in it as well.
Yesterday was a super bummer.. I was still primal but not OPTIMUS-PRIMAL (lol). I made some trail mix for the on the go times knowing with school starting I will have those times. In it I dry roasted some raw sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, as well as some dried fruit and large thin slices of crunchy coconut. Yesterday while on to 1 of 2 of Lily's appointments I opted to much on a little of that instead of grabbing a burrito or something. She was hungry and got a burrito. I would say I am making progress and getting back where I was. I need to stay in the groove.
Another confession, I think the journal I am writing in is helping. I think it helps me to not just write the food down but box the questionable food to decide if it should be in my diet etc. Its a good reflective piece. The journal is also not so cumbersome that I can put it in my purse and take it with and not so unattractive that I have a "notebook" in my purse, rather it looks like a book or diary. I dunno..anyway.
Official report back to school day is tomorrow. I am going in today to work in my room (again). There is always something to be done and to be honest, I am ready to get back to the routine.
DD and I walked the route to school and discussed rules and common sense (i.e. look before crossing, stay on sidewalks, no picking flowers from yards etc etc.).
Here is to another great day!
