Well so it's day 8 today! And what a week it has been! But I've been very happy with my progress! Not only did I resist all the naughty food on our tea room table this week including; M&Ms, cake, chips and more! But I also haven't had a drink of alcohol!
These two things I believe are the centre of my demise when it comes to self control.
My arch enemy the work tea room table! Especially on a weekend where we have minimal staff and as we never know what might come though the door we often bring meals to share when we get a chance to eat. These are normally fantastic home cooked meals although often involve rice and pasta, but I make sure I bring a meal that is primal and to share. However it's the cakes, biscuits (cookies!), chocolate, chips and a like that's the hard one to avoid! But this week not one small sugar coated chocolate goodness passed my lips!
2. Alcohol! I like in some pretty nice wine country and very much enjoy a lovely glass of Pinot noir with my dinner. It's the ciders, beer, vodka and gin that I also indulge in that's the problem! So 8 days alcohol free! Ya go me!
The other thing I have found these last few days and I'm not sure if it's related to my diet change and that is my mood. I guess you could describe it as the sads. I'm not depressed enough that I stopped participating in anything, and I'm very happy with my progress. I have felt a little slow and think its a mild case of carb flu so maybe that's where the sads are coming from.
On the plus side I climbed the Stanley Nut last Monday and went for a nice hike around the top. I'll attach a pic the view it is worth the walk. Also I've lost 2.6 kg (5.7lbs)this week!!! I'm stoked with my efforts.
So this weekend I have off work and my partner away visiting parents. When I have no one else to be accountable to I often head to the nearest takeaway joint. So I'm prepared with a fridge full of yummy primal approved food!
