Seven days left

Day 23.  As of tomorrow I will have one week left, only 7 more days on my whole 30.  I've been getting really tired in the afternoon, but I haven't passed out on the couch or just felt like I can't go on.  Plus I've been much much more active with picking Lily up from school twice a day, and I've had more energy to do other things like go to the park and clean the house.  So considering how my activity level has shot through the roof, I think it's pretty darn good to only get a little tired in the afternoon.  I've been able to fall asleep super fast which is awesome.  Insomnia is not fun.  I would go to bed at 10:00 and stay awake until 12 or 1:00 in the morning.  I am very thankful that I can fall asleep faster now.  Chloe still wakes up every so often with leg pains, but it is a lot better than it used to be, since it used to be every single night. 

Yesterday I went up to see my sister and I brought lunch, but she took us out for dinner.  I'm sure there was something in my salad that wasn't compliant, but I seriously did my best and I'm just going to let the rest be as it may.  We went to Noodles and Co. and I got the new Market Salad without blue cheese.  I don't know what their chicken marinade contains and I don't know what their vinaigrette is made out of and I don't know if the bacon was cured with sugar or not, but seriously, I did my best and I'm moving on.  It was certainly more compliant than the Pad Thai or the Japanese Pan Noodles, two of my favorites. 

I have a new Paleo Book to go through.  I'm excited to delve into it.  My sister bought it for me for my birthday and I just got it the other day since my nephew was born on my birthday and that was a lot of drama. 
Amazon Link  (I do not receive commissions if you buy this book)
I'm excited to explore it, I've already seen some of it, but I haven't really gone through it yet.  I want to make the Pad Thai, and they have a different method for making zoodles than I was using before, it is supposed to make them so they are not mushy or watery.  I have to finish this week's list before I can start making food out of my new cookbook since I already purchased the food for this week. 

Every time I think about eating a bunch of junk, I just think "what would be that point of that?"  What would it accomplish?  Nothing, it would just make me feel sick, and tired and moody. 

I received my first compliment the other day.  They said that my tummy/waist is looking smaller.  I'm not surprised, my waist is always the first thing to shrink.  But that is good, because it means it is working!  I'm tired of being so overweight, back in the obese category.  It's exhausting dragging around all this extra weight.
