    so as I mentioned before I slipped up last week and went on a bad downward spiral but I got right back on things and this is day 5 after the restart. still hanging in there. bummed that it could be day 15, that would have felt so much better. crazy how days 1-3 on the restart felt totally easy but then yesterday I really struggled again. ate a bunch of nuts just b/c I wanted to eat so bad. so I know that was wrong but at least it wasn't sugar

    Starting tomorrow, i need help

    really bad unfortunetly I did one small mess up and it sent me in a 3 day downward spiral this is so typical, I will do good for about a week and then completely go overboard the other way. the thing is when I eat sugar (which is what I went on a downward spiral with) I get the worst headache ever and get so tired and u think that would be enough to keep me away from it but no. I am still paying this morning so doing horrible yesterday afternoon. I told myself maybe I shouldn't go at this extreme approach where we cut out so much b/c it makes me want it more but really it is the approach I need I just don't know why I always have to fail. I can never be strong enough. I don't know how everyone does it. I need to succeed at this!!!

    I can't believe this you guys...I failed today, I gave into temptations. I had dates and I think their sweetness sent me over the deepend. I am surrounded by candy here and I have reisted thus far and finally gave in and I feel physically ill and I am beyond disappointed in myself. I can't believe I failed again, just like I do every other time. my bloat had gone down now I have to start all over. urgh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    oh crap I ate a bunch yesterday. ran stuck had, needed food, them with raw nuts. had way too many. so yummy figured they were not the best b/c of the natural high sugar content. I won't do it again BUT I don't have to start all over do I?

    Sweet potato fries

    I just read in my daily email that I shouldn't have sweet potato fries...what? that has been one of my go to's. I just cut up a sweet potato, put coconut oil, sea salt and cinnamon on it and bake it and I have it with a meal of protein and healthy fats. what is wrong with that? I love it and am hoping I don't have to give it up.

    Food prep

    so for your egg muffins are you just mixing eggs with various veggies and spices and baking them?

    Fatty snacks?

    i remember reading that we can have unsweetened shredded coconut. this would be considered a fat right? did i ruin things by having a couple handfuls of that yesterday on its own and not part of a meal??

    man, today has been tough! anyone else struggling. I am still avoiding sugar but I just want to put food in my mouth. I love food so much and am already bored of protein and fruits/veggies. I want some crackers or peanuts (besides the usual sugar) I want more crunch. I am going to do this, just want to see if I am alone in struggling?? I also had a couple snacks again today. I know we are suppose to do just 3 meals and pre post workout BUT I figure having a healthy snack is at least better then eating junk right....I hope!

    i had 2 snacks yesterday, i was such an all day grazer before. they were both allowed food - some nuts and some unsweetened coconut but i was still upset that i had them. need ot make my meals bigger i guess. i am a stay at home mom so i have always found it hard to be surrounded by food all day long and the ability to eat any moment i want. oh and i had a dream last night that i had candy and i woke up really mad at myself until i realized it wasn't real
