Successful day yesterday. I do, however, think I totally had way too much sodium...and cheese.. Ended up having Chipotle for dinner and got a lil extra cheese..I loovve their cheese!

Scale TOLD me I had too much..stayed exactly the same. Just glad it didn't go up!

Symptoms continue to get better...did have a very icky cough yesterday but it was productive and I think my body is now capable of getting rid of what's just been sittin' there? Slept well and feel rested. My rings are spinning today.

Going to work on pulling out recipes this weekend and plan meals for the week so I'm not so fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants. I get scary when I'm like that and the tendancy to go off plan is far greater.

I'm so glad you're feeling better and things are improving for you! Wow, what a journey. Yep, that chicken salad is one of my downfalls, but it doesn't have to be on LC! YAY!

Thanks! It's all definitely been quite the journey. Truly miss being able to eat whatever I want, it certainly made life easier. But, what I'm learning is that nothing about me is easy or uncomplicated! Having some more chicken today

mmm...Chipotle.... I had mexican yesterday too, and a little too much cheese--but I also had tortilla chips and white flour tacos and all that "other stuff". I'm kicking around pairing my Fast-5 plan with lower carb--going to give it another week or so to eat the "other stuff" and make a decision then. I know I've been successful on low carb, so maybe it's time to add that in.

Have a great weekend, D!

Lisa~ that's what I miss about JUDDD... ALOT.. However, now I don't really have much of a choice in how I eat if I want to actually be able to function. Yeah, I'm being honest, it sucks rocks but with the way I've felt since December I think I'll take lc and productive lifestyle over living like a lump and unable to get outta bed. I will have to live vicariously through you and your yummy food that is off limits to me

Making chocolate bark this weekend, I am so excited

I am so bad with planning, I get so lazy and complacent. Which is rather dumb on my part, because inevitably through all that lazy I get bored with food and then it turns into something else altogether.. I am really determined to stop that cycle!

Another great day completed and ready for a great weekend. I just cannot convey my total joy about the sleep thing. I keep talking about it but it's because for over 3 months I don't think I got through 1 single night without waking up at least 4 or 5x.. exhausting! The last 4 days i have literally slept the entire night without waking once. It's crazy!

Scale moved today. Even better! Things are looking up.

Phew! Didn't think I'd ever get here!

Weekend flew by in a big ole hurry.. DH has been off the last 2 days so my schedule gets all thrown off..hence, the lack of time spent here..
It's all good though, we got alot done around the house and ran a ton of errands..

Saw Olympus Has Fallen on Sat. It was just meh. Disappointed for sure, but ah well. Did dinner out also and maayyyynnn, I missed my Blue Moon's.. I hung in there tho and ate on plan and stayed away from the beer..

Scale's bounced some but it's all good... ate out twice this weekend so counting my blessings that it was only by a few oz's..

Still feeling pretty good, going to up the oregano supp and add the probiotic this week. Pretty proud of myself that I've managed to stick to a regimine of taking my pills every day, even the multi.

Lot's of familial drama going on and could seriously dive head first into some chocolate ice cream...but I haven't...and I won't. It's not worth it in the end and won't solve a thing.

On a positive note...I got P!NK tickets! So freakin excited to see her again.

Good morning Danielle! I've missed you, been in my own funk over here. Congrats on the supplements and abstaining from beer. Are you avoiding wheat or just beer carbs? Don't let the familia get you down. You have your life to lead and your own family to take care of...no apologies. As for ice cream... Breyers makes a real yummy LC one.

How are your allergies symptoms, better?

Sometimes a funk is needed. Avoiding all wheat... Guess it makes sense that I've got the yeast issues since I love beer so much. .. yanno, I've tried the lc ice cream..just not feelin it. I decided that I could either let them beat me or get up, use my strength and kick some @$$.

______________________________________

Great start to another day. Scale is sitting at 230.8 PRAYING for the 20's in the a.m.! I'm just thankful that I don't have much to do today, nowhere to go..that way I know I'll stay on track.

Upped the oil of oregano last night..itchy itchy itchy today..
Sinus issues alittle this morning but I think part of it is actual allergies. Starting probiotics in the morning.

Welp, I obviously was too presumptuous with the scale. My body has it's own agenda of what is going to happen.

Down .4 today.

Apparently we are going to be taking this uber slow? ...Whether I like it or not!...OYE!!!!!!!

Symptoms still present. New dry itchy patches on neck and chest. Bubbly stomach. Somewhat tired.. Positives; dark spots on my face are disappearing, hair fall-out is slowing some, huge dry spots on arms are fading, and I've been less bloaty.
