Middle Finger to the Crap Food

It was an excellent weekend, and after a whole week of eating CLEAN, WHOLE food, I’m down to 162lbs.  I feel a thousand times better, and I’m determined to stay focused on eating the best absolute food, and no processed junk.  Yesterday, a neighbor and girlfriend came by and we had a little birthday party for her son.  She brought some delicious pizza pies, and cake and cupcakes, and I gave it one or two thoughts about eating them, and then decided against them.  At this point, my cravings are gone, but now I have to stay focused and on track.  It felt awesome waking up this morning – and feeling so good.  Giving the middle finger to crap is awesome.

Yesterday morning my honey ran out to the grocery store, and came home with fresh grub.  He purchased bags of apples, and bananas, and raspberries, and blueberries, and strawberries, and kale, and arugula and spinach and coconut milk, and sweet potatoes and honestly – all food that feeds our bodies better, and helps them grow stronger and longer.  It was nice to ask him to go to the grocery store and say: buy whatever you think we can use from the produce department!  And so he did.

He’s also down a solid 10lbs.  He decided to stop eating processed food, dairy and all meat.  He feels really good and I’m so proud and happy for him.

My children are also eating so much better, and they are eating strawberries, and pears and apples and grapes and raw food whenever they are open to it.  Instead of filling our cabinets with dead processed junk food, we are filling our fridge with live food.  I also put out several bowls around our kitchen and filled them with washed apples, and pears.  So whenever someone wants a snack – grab a fruit and enjoy!

I’m looking forward to doing more and more for my body.  I’m excited to see how it continues to evolve, and how it continues to change for the better.  Mentally, I already feel a whole lot better, and now I’m ready to keep it going, and keep eating really good food.  There is nothing better than feeling good from the inside out!

For breakfast I had two eggs and baby carrots.

For lunch I had a romaine salad with organic arugula, with cut up cucumber and broccoli, and then walnuts.

After this I ate two clementines and an apple.  I’m hungry again, but this time I’m thinking I’ll make some hot coffee and enjoy a little java with cinnamon!

How 2 Quit Binge Eating?

A few days ago, I was desperate.  I was upset that once again, I was not able to control my binge eating.  I couldn’t seem to have a regular amount of a food, I had to have so much of it.  And then the cravings.  Uncontrollable.

I googled, how to quit binge eating?  And this one video popped up by Raw Alignment.  She explained that once she stopped eating processed foods, she stopped binge eating.  And so – I immediately realized this is what I must do – once again.

In April 2015, I started the Whole30 diet, and I lost 19lbs.  I went from 165 to 145, and I felt fn amazing.  Like super.  But more than just the weight, I really loved not craving the junk I used to crave, over and over each day any-day.

And so, once the holidays hit, and 6 months after I started Whole30, I started little by little eating junk again.  Then I would re-start Whole30, but the will of the sugar was greater than my will for Whole30.  I kept telling myself it’s fine, and I kept eating.

Well enough is enough – and after watching this video, I’m back on the wagon!  I’m on Day 4 of eating 100% clean, and loving it.  I can actually use December 1st as my start date.  I feel good, and most importantly the cravings are gone.  I also am sleeping better, and I’m waking up with a lot more happiness and energy, then previously.  The benefits 100% outnumber the negatives of eating like shit.

When you eat crap you feel like crap. It’s honestly the simplest piece of common sense in this entire world, but hard to execute endlessly at times.

I have to understand that I just can’t have “one bite”.  I can’t just eat “bad” today and not tomorrow.  I have to seriously get it together, and understand taht a bit of something that is processed is disastrous!

So cheers to clean, wholesome eating!  I can’t wait to update everyone with weight loss and health results.
