Battling with the bulge

After a relatively healthy weekend of plenty of sleep, a ten mile run, and looking at lots of pictures of healthy vegetables and fruits, I'm ready to get back into my serious paleo eating.

Except that there is this little voice in my head (or maybe it's in my tummy) that keeps whispering for apple pie and eggs benedict.  Just once, then it's out of our system.  The whisper, she is seductive.

It's also been going on for at least a week.  What's up with that?

I'm thinking I may need to have a couple of cheat meals to satisfy these cravings.  Otherwise they feel like they have the potential to transform into a "hey, eating an entire large five-meat stuffed pizza in one sitting sounds like a good idea!" kind of a thing.  Ever have those kind of cravings?  Where you ruthlessly stuff them down until they explode into something wildly different from the original, somewhat innocent craving?  "Oh, if only I'd had that M&M, instead of the entire chocolate mousse pie!"

So after the gym tonight I may be getting a slice of pie and some hollandaise sauce.  Along with fresh raspberries, some halibut, brussels sprouts, and bacon.  Nom nom nom nom nom!!

Before I forget, I want to send out good vibes to my long time friend Sandy who is having heart surgery this week, and also to another long time friend Tiffany who is in Paris for her first marathon.  Bonne chance mon amie!

  1. I'll be in Portland this weekend. I'll resist the urge to invite you to gorge on pizza with me! ;)

  2. That's those evil carbs creating those cravings! Once you be good for 2+ weeks (if you can make it past that) you will be craving free. Don't think you don't have will power, cause its the food doing it to your brain. You just gotta make it past 2 weeks. You can do it!

  3. Funny how you and I both posted weight-related stuff. Mebbe some weird psychic linking going on....? ;0)

  4. Definitely stick to it those cravings will be gone in a few week, and you will break your sugar addiction.

    Keep to it!
