Here we are 4 weeks into this lifestyle change and last week was by far the most difficult for me. I cheated and ate something that I should not have and I paid for it the following day with lethargy and nausea. People, diabetics, should not cheat on their meals because they will hate themselves the following day or even moment after.
First, lets just put it right out there. I was good all week. Seriously had a small hiccup with dinner one night (Hello Pizza after a busy week), but all was better the next day and I was fine. Until Saturday evening. We decided to grab dinner and take the kids to a movie…stupid idea to forget snacks at home. We ate Qdoba for dinner and that was the first poor choice and then there was popcorn and soda and oh lawd…a brownie sundae. I had been depriving myself of all those scrumptious things for a month and just could not hold out. I felt terrible on Sunday, seriously guilty and nauseous and just plain awful. I can’t say that it won’t happen again, but I will probably have a bit more restraint the next time.
It is no surprise that I did not lose a pound this week. I am holding steady at about a 12 lb loss since the start of this. This week I am adding Yoga back into my daily routine and am not going to allow myself to cheat. I just can’t, the thought of shooting myself with a syringe each day terrifies me.
So that is where I am at. I have noticed that breakfast is the most difficult meal for me. I am allergic to milk and eggs which pretty much cancels all the food that people on this diet eat. I can eat foods that have eggs and milk in them in small amounts but an entire serving would be enough to keep me home for the day. So I searched Pinterest for some great breakfast options to help me get my mornings off to a better start.
iBreath I’m Hungry had this fantastic recipe for cream cheese pancakes that I cannot wait to try!
The Low Carb Diet shared these peanut butter breakfast bars which I made and so far they are tolerable. Not the most flavorful but I can get used to that.
Lastly, I am not a huge oatmeal fan, but I am intrigued by Screwed on Straight’s take on Noatmeal. It looks easy enough and is right on track with my diet.
