Fast Track & Spartacus: Wk 2, Day 7 - Sun, 12-Feb-2012

. . No comments:
  • What I'm realizing is although I have not had energy dips, my body can get tired and during parts of my menstrual cycle, I need to be resting more.   
  • Today I've been feeling a bit drained.  I'm thankful for easy meals that I can throw together in minutes.
  • We so far have 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies.  Since my eating is good, there are no cravings for these.
  • If you have cravings to eat all sorts of wrong foods, like sweets or stuff that has grains/starches, try eliminating eating grains & starches all together.  I've done low sugar, but still had grains & starches and though the cravings were sometimes less, I still had a lot of cravings.  They come from grains & starches (breads, pastas, rice, quinoa, potataoes, yams, corn, peas, corn starch, yeast, beans, legumes, peanuts, cashews).  Eliminate those. 
  • Tonight in my church class, someone brought homemade brownies and I love eating these, but I had ZERO inclination to eat them.  No willpower.  Just didn't want even a small bite and I was hungry.  Frankly, I was wanting to eat my dinner and couldn't wait to go home to eat my wild arugula, chicken, avocado, etc.

SMARTER GOAL:  Give my body the rest it wants. 

SLEEP:  9:45 pm - 7:00 am (9.25 hrs) - same sleeping as last Sunday.  Forgot to take my BP today.

Nap:  2:25 pm - 3:10 pm (0.75 hr) - Got woken up with a text.  I was going to sleep for 1.5 hrs.

Meal 2 @ 1:45 pm:  cottage cheese, cinnamon, raw almonds, 2 hard-boiled eggs, 1 handful of cucumber noodles ----> easy meal after church
