It's finally Friday!!! I'm so ready for the weekend, but it's going to be a stormy one, so my garden is probably going to end up waiting another week. I'll have some late veggies this year.

Last night was the last choir concert of the year and the kids did a great job. My son's baseball game was cancelled due to muddy fields, so you'd think I would have gone to bed early, but no. For some reason this week I haven't been able to get to sleep. At least I'm not super tired right now. I have been tired all week though and I think that I really need more protein in my diet. I'm going to make sure to get some chicken breasts cooked this weekend so I can grab them for salads, wraps, or whatever next week. Hopefully bumping up the protein will make a difference. Tonight we're having burgers and I'm trying my homemade ketchup, and I don't have high hopes for that. It smelled really sweet when I made it, but maybe just having it will help the burger not be so dry and bland.

Tomorrow we're going to a graduation reception, so that will be tough because I know there will be all sorts of good food. My plan is to make sure I have a good lunch and I'll take something sweet that I can eat either there or on my way home if I'm really feeling deprived. So far though I haven't had any crazy cravings, have I wanted to eat chocolate, yes, but I haven't been craving it and I haven't caved yet. We'll see how week 2 goes though, things could change, but I'm hoping for the best.

I hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend!

Well I've made it halfway through week 1 of my new diet and I'm not gonna lie, it's been a hard week so far. On Monday someone brought in a huge, iced chocolate chip cookie and a platter of assorted cookies to the office, Tuesday was bagels, and Wednesday was chocolate cupcakes and Reese's. I either picked a good week to start this diet or a bad week. I keep eyeballing the candy dish, but I can't give in. I guess I just have to be strong and think that at least I won't have a gain from all of the goodies next week.

The plus of the new diet is that I am feeling pretty good and I may have at least a slight loss on Monday. I haven't been able to just mindlessly eat, so I'm hoping that will help me change some of my eating habits for good. After 6 weeks I'm not just going to dive in and eat everything again, I'm just adding one thing at a time, so I'm really hoping I do learn to think about what I'm eating, learn to prepare things ahead, and maybe get rid of some sugar in my diet.

I don't have much to talk about right now, just focusing on my eating, and running kids around to activities.

Have a great pre-Friday!!

I don't know about anybody else, but I sure wish it was Friday. At least we have nothing going on tonight, so hopefully I can get to bed at a decent time. I think that getting used to this new way of eating put me through some withdrawal like symptoms yesterday. I was so tired all day and had a terrible headache and my body was achy. I can eat regular sugar, but I'm sure I've reduced the amount of sugar and sweeteners that I would normally eat, so I wonder if that's it. It's amazing how the body works. Today I'm feeling a little better, not as tired, the headache is almost gone.

With this new way of eating I have to make my lunch every day, I can't just grab a frozen dinner, so that's been hard since I've gotten into the habit of grabbing and going. This weekend I'll have more time to make my lunch, so hopefully I can get some things pre-made and frozen. I am still working on the carb, protein, fat balance.

Exercise is still at none, and probably will be until the weekend. I think being tired, busy, and getting used to the new diet is going to do me in this week. Tonight I would have time, but after working late, and eating dinner as soon as I get home, I don't think it will happen and I'm going to try to hit the hay as early as I can. Tomorrow my daughter has a choir concert and my son has baseball, so I've made my peace with the fact that I may only get exercise in this weekend.

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!

My last journal was about a week ago, man I've been busy. I started my new diet that the gastro recommended. We'll see how it goes, I'm going to try my best to stick with it for 6 weeks then slowly reintroduce foods. This won't be easy, but I hope it makes me feel better. Last night I was really nauseated and my stomach was kind of upset all day, so I hope that is just from a weekend of eating different foods and being away from home. I'm crossing my fingers that I can stick with this and don't slip. Of course we've had lots of goodies in our office this week already, so someone is really testing my will power.

I think the hardest thing is going to be learning how to balance everything and not eat too many carbs or fats and make sure I get my protein. This weekend I'm going to try to plan some breakfasts and lunches that will be easy for the week and do some prep so I'm not rushing in the mornings. Dinner isn't too bad because if we have meat I can figure out my own sides, but condiments are hard because most of them have onion and garlic and I can't have either.

I haven't done much for exercise since Thursday because we've been going, going, going. Tonight after work we have to eat quickly so we can get to baseball pictures then a game. So instead of 2 hours at the ball park it will be 3 and it's not very nice out today. I'll just have to take my coat and blanket and suck it up. I'm tired today to, so it's going to feel like a loooooong game.

I'm sure I have more going on, but I can't think because I'm so tired. I hope everyone is having a great week so far!!
