Ultimate…

ultimateSo, I’m changing gears.  Still eating healthy.  Still eating mostly whole foods.  Still staying clear of most sugar.  But I am weening off of Whole30.  I’m so thankful for the last 45 days or so of eating clean, clean, clean, but I can feel myself getting bored and that’s never a good thing.

Melanie told me about this app — Ultimate Food Value Diary.  It’s basically Weight Watchers without the cost.  Seriously.  The full blown app was $13 for the year.  ($3.99 for the basic app and then $9.99 for 12 months of premium where you can link your exercise tracker, etc.).  So far so good.  It has the feel of WW, even a little fancier in some ways.  So, we shall see.  I will weigh next Sunday just to see where I’m at and then go from there.

The only sugar I will add back in is honey or agave.  I miss it in my tea, but it’s not enough to set me off down a dark path of sugar craziness.  And rice, I miss a bit of rice for a side.  Otherwise, I’m perfectly happy eating whole.  In fact, the smell of roasted vegis is wafting through my house as I type.

My recovery is still ongoing.  It’s soooo much slower than I had hoped.  I’m thinking this coming weekend I’ll try to go for a short walk so I don’t feel so frustrated and useless.  I truly do.  I feel like a giant lump on the couch.  I had a busy weekend and I probably over used it again, but you do the best that you can.

I pulled an all-nighter on Friday-Saturday.  Our high school youth group “packed the MAC” for the entire night.  So much fun, but wow – I’m too old for that!  I was up all day Friday, took a one-hour nap, and then hit the MAC from 9:30p – 7:15a the next day.  Came home thinking I’d totally pass out and only managed two one-hour naps.  I was so spent by Saturday night.  I slept a full 8 hours, non breaks.  It felt great.  Sunday I volunteered at church for Starting Point, a welcome event for newcomers to our church.  Those that want to get more connected.  I manned a table of nice folks.  Later last night was youth group.  I guess I was the “church lady” this weekend.  It feels good to serve but I’m glad the weekend came to a close! 🙂

This week it’s back to focusing more on work and building my business.  Feels good to be getting back in the swing of things.
