Well, it's the start of week 5!  Whoa, where did time go?  I feel like the last 2 weeks went down the drain, but I'm back in the saddle again and ready to do this!  I haven't written in a while and I'm hoping by writing that I will stop craving Oreos.  I know that's the craziest things, but I'm about to get my period (Right there with you Amber) and I'm craving junk.  I want Oreos and Milk so bad it isn't funny.  We don't have any in the house, so I really don't have much to worry about, but I could eat the entire pantry right now!  Thank the Lord for no oreos in the house!  BUT we do have Girl Scout Cookies=(  I bought them hoping to send them to the troops, but when they were delivered Maylea was home and I had forgotten she had picked out a box and so she opened all 3 boxes!  I don't think a soldier would appreciate an opened, half-eaten box of cookies.  So, they are here and I ate 5, but that was yesterday.  I'm still craving today.  Instead, I had 10 nut clusters hoping to curb my craving, but I'm still waiting.  I try to remember I am in control of this (Thanks Sherri & Kelly) and I am bigger than the oreos, but oh my!
I've started the Monday morning class at PR and b/c it's earlier in the day I have forgotten that I have already exercised today.  I feel I should do it again.  Weird.  Maybe if I meditate it will help the craving situation.  All in all, I feel good.  I feel better.  I haven't exploded on my kids in a while and I feel more calm.

As Chris says:

"Be well"  (I like it a lot)

Week 3

Well, it's week 3, Tuesday actually and the last 5 days have been a struggle.  I posted last week I was tired, thought possibly it was part of the project, which it could have been, but I came down with a lousy cold Friday night.  Fever, pounding head and nasty cough.  It's Tuesday and I finally ate something descent.  This cold zapped my appetite completely.  I know I didn't take in enough calories and I didn't have the strength to exercise, so I'm a bit upset about that.  But, I feel 100x better and can't wait to exercise tomorrow and eat something yummy, that is quality food. 
One thing I wanted to share was my sweet cravings are diminishing.  Friday was my Free Meal and I decided to eat a HOLYCOW CUPCAKE.  It was good, not great and there are still 2 sitting on the counter and they don't even sound good!  For me, that is awesome!!!  Maybe it's b/c I've been sick, but I really think I'm getting that junk out of my body.  Tonight, I THOUGHT I wanted a Dr. Pepper, sounded kind of good after being sick.  Poured 1/2 of it into my cup, drank some and it didn't taste good!  Major achievement!  I love this feeling.  Will it last?  I sure hope so.  Looking forward to getting back on track tomorrow.  Be safe if you are out and about.
