Last night I had my first good night of sleep in over a week. Amazing. I am so grateful! I will never take good sleep for granted again. I was starting to feel like a robot zombie or something, an irritable person just going through the motions, wanting the day to end so I could try and sleep again. Not ideal!
Woke up at 8 AM after 9 whole hours of steady sleep.. feeling happy, smiley and full of energy. Love!
Last night, I did cheat, and gained .2 pounds because of it - but it is probably bloating because my cheat was CHEESE. I should NOT have cheese (but oh heavenly delicious cheese!)... I am very lactose intolerant and it always makes my stomach upset. Always. But I can only seem to stay away for a month or so before I throw caution to the wind and give it another go. Bah.
So it wasn't paleo, but it wasn't garbage cheese (it was a gorgeous lovely smoked local cheddar) so if I wasn't lactose intolerant, I wouldn't even be feeling like I shouldn't have had it!
Hoping for a better performance from myself tonight. Friends are ordering the Phish show to stream on TV and having a bunch of people over in costumes to celebrate Halloween. I will not eat their processed candy (especially since my husband sent me beautiful truffles in the mail!... no reason to eat crap chocolate when I have handmade gourmet chocolate right here, muahahahaha). But I hope they don't put out much else to snack on just so I don't have to work so hard on avoiding temptation!!
One big positive this week: no alcohol!
I've been able to stick to that really well. We, obviously, drank on our honeymoon, whenever we wanted to! So it is really easy to abstain now and that does wonders for my metabolism and bloating issues. Alcohol is not my friend in health.
Might post a picture of me in costume tonight if I get a chance :)
