I have very very little sugar now, and what I'm working on now is dropping my refined carbs back down again (bread and pasta!) I did have them eliminated but they've crept back in as cheap easy food when we had almost no money...

With Paleo, just be careful that just because it's been tagged as Paleo,modest make it healthy and fine to eat lots of! I've seen SO many delicious raw deserts, sweetened with dates or whatever and all raw whole ingredients blended together. They're technically Paleo, but it is NOT an excuse to go making lots of that sorta thing. I did try Paleo for a while, but I got sick of that sorta false feeling tagging/labelling and it felt like it was getting all "trendy" and so I ditched the title and just ate real food.

The main goal really is to really cut down those processed pre made foods. Eat veggies and meat! Keep it real, buy from the outside edges of a supermarket rather than the packaged stuff in the centre aisles. And learn to read ingredient labels for those hidden added sugars in EVERYTHING.
Is that the name of it? I don't think I have heard of it? Is it on Netflix or something?

I say Paleo so that people can look it up and know what I mean. Basically it is just eating real food. I will be a hunter/gatherer lol. I also don't like the trendiness of it because it sounds just like another fad diet. I am trying to make this a lifestyle change because Lord knows I need it.

Fad or not if it works it's great! You guys are awesome for sticking with that!

I am doing good so far this morning. I haven't eaten anything bad and have made more of an effort to get some extra steps in. Lunch is going to be tough as I am making homemade pizza for my clients and it is always hard for me to not have a piece!

All in moderation right? I would totally go that route if I didn't have this dang insulin resistance! I have seen recipes for pizza with cauliflower crust and I want to try it!

I did pretty good for breakfast. Had ground turkey, 1 scrambled egg, mushrooms, and a bit of coconut oil. I might just have my protein shake for lunch because I am full! Maybe protein shake and a piece of fruit.

My knee is feeling much better today so planning on getting some kind of workout in. Because I work at home I like the Leslie Sansone walking videos on Youtube. They help me to get in my steps. My step goal per day right now is 3k but I want to up it as the weeks go on.

Yes, Google the title "that sugar film" and I watched it on putlocker but you can find it about all over I think. Or pay to watch it even. It's an amazing eye opener film and a MUST watch for anyone even vaguely interested in their health.

I have a Fitbit too, but haven't put a new battery in for ages. I might buy a battery for it today....

Sounds like it is going well! How has the rest of the day been ladies?

I have stuck with it today but now I can feel myself wanting to cheat for supper. I am going to stick with it though and have ham and turkey on a whole wheat wrap with spinach and ranch and probably some sort of veggies

I just watched the trailer. I am going to see if I can find it on Netflix! People don't realize how much sugar is in everything. I am sure it will be a real eye opener.

You have been doing so well! My advice, if you are going to cheat a little, do it earlier in the day so you have a chance to try and burn those calories off. You supper idea sounds great though! I am not sure yet what I am going to make. Just finishing up work and then I will go and check and see what kind of meat I have thawed out and work around that. Is it weird that I am craving brown rice?

Ok I found "That Sugar Film" on Amazon and watching it now since I have Amazon Prime. It is free!

I have decided that I am going to cheat and order pizza (I did stay on point for lunch). I am over here making excuses again and saying that I am ordering pizza to celebrate because as soon as I finish the paper I am working on I am officially done with the semester and only an internship stands between me and my degree! I went for thin crust to try and make the point count better.

I am intrigued by this sugar film but I am too scared to watch it! I am sure it would be very beneficial but those things always scare me straight a little too good lol.

I had brown rice at lunch, I think its a perfectly normal craving! haha

You gotta be able to maintain this shit for LIFE, there is no diet that will work forever if it isn't a lifestyle. So yes, order the pizza! Enjoy it, and don't make excuses. Own it. And then, move on again. One pizza isn't gonna make you fat, just like one salad isn't gonna make you skinny. You gotta focus on the overall things. Cut that sugar, lower the processed carbs and make small but sustainable changes. Enjoy some treats too, and enjoy the tasty healthy food as well.
