How I’m Feeling
Well, to be honest, I am feeling a mix of feelings for days 12 and 13. My birthday is tomorrow so I’ve been celebrating my “birthday weekend” over the past couple of days and I have been really bummed about what foods I can’t eat. My mom made me a birthday cake today and I didn’t eat it.
I don’t feel like I am craving sugar at all. I’ve been doing relatively well reading labels and thinking about what I am eating. But I have also come to realize that I am constantly surrounded by non-compliant food and I still somehow have incredible strength. I am also accepting that I will not be eating cake for my birthday this year, but that’s okay.
What I Ate
This weekend, I have been eating leftovers and grilled meats and veggies, for the most part. My boyfriend was in town this weekend for my birthday so we went out for dinner and lunch but I stuck to grilled/roasted meat and vegetable options. The oils used may not have been compliant but I didn’t ask as much detail as maybe I could have.
I’m ready to take on this week and the rest of the month. The halfway point is nearly here!
