And to be expected.
I am up to 131.
It's fine! I would have been THRILLED TO DEATH a month ago to have weighed 131. So I am in a good place mentally :)
It just reaffirms that I have to stay on track and focused if I want to get down to where I am bouncing around between 125 and 129 and don't have to worry about the 130s anymore. I'd like to be at a place where a little drinking on the weekend won't put me into the 130s. Which means I have to be fit and eating clean 99% of the time!
I am willing to work on this. More than willing.
I am struggling with the effects of the wine trail, though. I am hungier for the past three days. I want JUNK. I want cake and candy and potato chips. I haven't craved those in weeks. So, big surprise that after a day of eating fudge and cheese and wine, I all of a sudden have these cravings back! Makes me want to stay a little farther away from the indulgences, haha.
Also, something of note. I started paleo because I was interested in how it claimed to reduce inflammation. I have some chronic itchy rashes on my legs... or did, before paleo. I struggled with them for a long time, they bothered me a lot. Tried creams and good soaps and etc etc. Then: eliminated bread and dairy (which I think dairy IS a big culprit in a lot of my digestive issues) and the rashes were gone!
But... after this weekend of a day off plan. They are back.
I don't think this is a big coincidence.
Another boost of confidence that paleo is really a good way for me to eat for the long haul!
I don't want cravings. Or rashes. Or weight gain.
I want clear skin and low body fat and to eat food to fuel my body to live my life!
