Thanks everyone, that is so helpful! My activity level is about average. I have a 20 month old and a 6 month old so I'm always running around the house with them. Unfortunately getting enough sleep is not something I can fix right now, the baby wakes up once or twice most nights, and while she goes right back to sleep and I don't have to get out of bed, it still wakes me up and breaks up my sleep cycle. I don't have a hard time eliminating sugar, because I've never had a sweet tooth. I usually go for salty snacks if I'm craving something. I've also not liked bread all that much either, so eliminating wheat has been super easy. The problem for me has been eliminating all dairy, or at least most dairy (I still use butter, cream and milk on occasion). I bought coconut oil and have been cooking with that. I don't usually buy bacon, but I love it so I wouldn't mind adding that to my grocery list.
I plan on buying grass fed meat, but won't be able to do that until my husband is out of training and we have more $ coming in. Our eggs come from grass fed chickens and the butter I use comes from grass fed cows. I wish I could just throw out all the junk in my pantry, but my husband isn't fully on board with this diet yet and I need some easy snacks for the kids when I'm exhausted. Once my husband is on board 100% it will be easier to get rid of the junk. Most of it is wheat based which I know I can't have and am not tempted to eat because of the horrible side affects.
Right my exercise looks like this:
All week - chase around the little ones, and go on nightly walks with my husband for 30 - 60 mins.
Twice a week I go on shopping trips and walk around the store/mall pushing the kids in a stroller/shopping cart for at least 30 mins
I do 20 minutes of sprints once a week
and I'm going to start following the exercise routine that came in the ebook when I signed up for the newsletter. (2 weight training sessions a week).
Thanks for all your help, now that things have been cleared up I'll have a easier time with this transition. I think part of my problem is I have the "carb flu" and the foggy brain and confusion is hitting me pretty hard.
