Week 2 of the worst experiment ever went um... horribly? By day 2 of the second week I had pretty much over analyzed myself to the point that I couldn't figure out if I was hungry, emotional, or just plain over thinking everything. I should have been a psychiatrist. I can totally picture myself next to a couch somewhere listening to everyone's problems and totally relating. It's probably good I didn't.. In college intro to psychology I diagnosed over half my friends and family with some sort of personality disorder.

Anyways.. the worst experiment ever would probably work wonderfully for someone who didn't work, didn't have kids, didn't live in a society where meals happen at defined times, and never heard of chocolate or ben and jerry's. I'm not that person. I got tired of eating cold eggs because I had to buy breakfast before 9 and I couldn't convince my body I was hungry until 10:15.

It's not all bad though. I got off the experiment. Spent a day or two convincing myself that my body was retarded and went on the low carb high fat road because it's worked every other time in my life that I've managed to stick with it. That is until I get pregnant... then all bets are off. Babies love carbs. In an effort to keep with it I even started an Instagram account so I can post daily little things without having to convince work that Fatsecret isn't a porn site and lets face it.. sometimes posting pictures of your latest thing cooked in butter with bacon wrapped around it is fun. Also, a picture is worth a million and one words.

Tonight's picture/inspiration.. Calf muffin tops. Yes that's a thing. I have them. I'm not lying. When I put on my barn boots the stretchy top that's supposed to snuggly hug your calfs so things don't get in there hugs mine so fiercely that my calves have.. muffin tops. My goal weight is where my calves don't have muffin tops. Ideally I would like them to be so slim and muscular and defined that things get into my boot. I welcome random silage and things. Just so long as I don't get a muffin top and a lovely little defined line where the boots once where for the remainder of the night.. seriously.. who needs more motivation than that??

Day 5 of the worst experiment ever was Sunday and it was by far the worst day. I behaved... Badly. This is what happens when you can't listen to your body because tiny humans are louder than your inner voice. Also tiny humans who are boys are apparently starving all the time because they are constantly grazing. This made me graze... The preteen was at a friends and the husband was mowing hay so it was just us gazers. Also bad. We did go help grandma stack wood in her basement instead of taking a nap because no one else would help her. Oh and my stomach did pay me back after our 4 pm late nap because well we were tired and full from grazing all day. Felt like a stuffed cow that couldn't get up and ended up only having a tiny bit of roast I had been cooking and smelling all day long.

Moral of day 5?? Tiny humans trump inner voice. Next weekend will include backup, duct tape, and absolutely no Amish donuts in the house... Or fudge... Or makings for grilled cheese sandwiches.. Or grandmas cookie jar.. Or um any of that other crap I ate.

So far day 6 started off rocky but now is gong swimmingly thanks to laps in the parking lot that turned me into a puddle of gooop

Day 4 of the Worst Experiment Ever - Goal.. only eat real food when my body signals it's hungry, don't track calories, don't listen to the clock, and above all else.. question my sanity.

I have probably eaten more today than any other day. This is mostly because we were out running around for lunch when everyone got hungry so I had a grilled chicken sandwich and probably what amounted to a small fry before I said Ok I'm satisfied. Not exactly on the meal plan but I managed it pretty well. I'm moving on and just following whatever cues my body gives me from this point forward. Right now it's telling me to nap.... I informed the tiny humans I live with of this and both boys laughed at me.. then told me to be a horsey..

The experiment does seem to be going pretty well. I've been told by just about everyone I know that they couldn't do this. Apparently I'm not the only one that questions my body's sanity. It does seem to know what it's doing though.. I have more energy, my pants don't feel like they are attempting to strangle me to death, I'm more.. mellow?? I haven't screamed at my kids like a crazy woman for the last 2 days, and according to fitbit I'm not as restless when I sleep. It's possible my inner self is an eccentric dingbat that may know more than I've been giving it credit for.

Day 4 or 5 is usually where I crash and burn on any eating ideas I have so the rest of this weekend will be the real test. :)
