Hello All,

1 week down and 2 more to go!  YAY!

I felt pretty good this morning but as the day progressed I got more and more tired.  I felt pretty foggy today and I was not at all productive.  I ate the rest of my primal chili and some banana bread crumble.  Today was my boyfriends Christmas party all the way up in Seattle.  It was so much fun!  The atmosphere was awesome and the food was great 🙂  I stuck to my primal/ paleo diet for the most part.  I say for the most part because I did have a salad that had some cheese on it and a dressing that probably had some sugar somewhere in it, the chicken had some sort of chutney on it, and I am not 100% sure of all of the ingredients on everything.  I am happy with how I did though.  Tonight I was actually tempted to stray and I even told my boyfriend I my cheat… but I stuck to it!

I want to make note of the fact that last night I was super bloated and gassy and I am again tonight.  I am wondering what the correlation between the 2 days is.  Maybe the fact that I wasn’t truly 100% in everything I ate?  Yesterday I questioned the ham having been cured with some sugar and today I know some of the stuff had sugar.  My closest theory is that the sugar is making me bloat up.  This may be a theory to test in the future.

Energy- low

Mood- irritable

Mental Clarity- foggy/ low

I am super tired right now because it’s well passed my bedtime and it has been a long few days.  I am not used to going out and we went out 3x this week.

I need to think of what I am going to do to clear my mental fog, get some energy, and be super productive!  Maybe eat a little bit earlier in the day?  I eat when I get hungry but today I couldn’t eat until about 1 or 2 hours after I became hungry- this did not help the mental fog 😦  With my job it can be difficult to break away to eat.  Sometimes the timing just isn’t right.  How to combat this?  I would be more energetic if my mind was clear, and if I had more energy I would be more productive- so, in conclusion I need to figure out how to clear my mind and raise my energy in a natural and healthy way.  Working out is a great idea but when I am so tired it’s hard to get myself to do much of anything.

My plan of action for tomorrow: get up early and have my coffee; get my food prepared for work; make a list of how I am going to stay on track and be productive at work… WISH ME LUCK

As always- FUCK YOU CANCER!  I ask God to guide me through the questions and concerns I have.
