The Wheels are Spinning, #21DSD
So, here’s what I’m thinking. I have 12 weeks until my birthday. I’ll be 37, I’m not afraid to say. I spent some quality time last night venting to Hubby about how piss-poor my attitude is becoming again with regards to my weight loss, etc. My go-to when that happens is a read-through of The Paleo Dieter’s Missing Link. It always seems to reset my attitude. I haven’t read it yet, today – hey I haven’t even finished my coffee, FFS! But, I did wake up with my mind churning with ideas. The 21-Day Sugar Detox starts another round March 5th. I know I’ve mentioned previously how Diane suggested I go to shorter cycles (4-5 days on detox, 1 day refeed) but I’m not sure I’m ready for that, or that my body will react well to that. I think I need longer, sustained efforts. I also think I need to avoid nuts (ie almond flour, etc). Even if I’m not using honey to sweeten stuff, I had better results in December when I didn’t consume much in the way of nuts. So, I’m thinking a 12-week-stretch of uber-clean eating. And, yes, OMG, that may include no bacon for the duration**. I will probably experiment during the first part of this 12 weeks – do a clean month of the Sugar Detox *with* bacon and then one *without* bacon & compare results. I am also contemplating experiments with portions, carb counting, etc. Maybe I’ll be able to figure out the new magic formula for the next 50 pounds or so.
**If it doesn’t speak to my level of desperation on this subject, that I’d be willing to not eat bacon.. I don’t know what would. lol
