Welp, paleo isn’t working for me. I think it’s an interesting life style, but not for me. It was good to break my sugar and grain addiction, and I would like to continue to cut out sugar and refined foods, but I will be reintroducing whole grains. I’m going to focus on veggies, fish, nuts, and whole grains for now! Thanks to my *15* followers for the past 2 weeks!

Day 11… I was good all day then I fell off again and had fast food. Seriously. Ugh. Frustrated with myself. I feel like a jerk being so negative all the time on here, I will try to be better tomorrow!!!!!

Day 10… had a few vodka waters (so delicious! not really. but I add fruit to them so they are tolerable) and decided: YOU KNOW WHAT, I am a lover of food! I am a lover of unhealthy amazing food that makes me happy! Sure, I’ve cheated twice in the past 10 days (popcorn and chocolate both times), but pfft that doesn’t count. SO I AM GETTING RICE AND FRIES. Anyway, it was good. I do not regret it. I’m back to healthy food and all that jazz today.

I will probably cut you if you talk to me.

Bright side: down to 127lbs

Day 8 and I’m feeling pretty discouraged. I got a little lightheaded today and I’m mega sleepy. I know I *shouldn’t* be jumping on the scale every 2 seconds, but I’m around 130-131lbs as oppose to the 128lbs I was a few days ago. Waah.

On the bright side, I’m not craving sweets as much, so I would like to stick with the sugar free portion of this diet for… ever. I will allow a cheat here and there, but not everyday (and multiple times a day) like I used to. I’m also considering keeping the dairy out, again with the occasional cheat treat.

Day 7 was not too bad - I sort of cheated by having 2 vodka water’s (with lemon and cilantro) and a hard cider. I’m pleased to have a week done, but now that I’m no longer feeling awful, I’m also not feeling better than before. I’m starting to think that if I’m not feeling at least some amount better than before I started, I will start to reintegrate whole grains after the 2 week mark. But who knows.

End of day 6, I actually had energy today! It probably helped that I randomly decided to register and pay for taking the GRE, meaning I’ll actually have to apply to grad schools soon, SO SCARY. But food-wise I wasn’t as hungry as I had been, yay! Body is finally getting used to it!

Start of day 6, I couldn’t resist and weighed myself. I started at 132lbs and I’m down to 128lbs, woo! I definitely needed a little motivation, so this helps.

Day 5 was alright. Sleep mega tired. Walked for an hour and went to bed early. It was the first day I let myself any cheat foods - popcorn and a tiny bit of chocolate. So pumped to have the first week almost over with!

My friend came over tonight with corn chips, cheese and homemade salsa. Sad me. So I ate some of the delicious salsa with lettuce and spinach!
