We agreed to stop eating out and we did great until last week. We ate out twice last week because I got home from work so late and the exhaustion was too real. I don't think people can understand teacher exhaustion until you have been there. I did make good choices while eating out. I had salad and high protein meals both times we ate out. The key is just saying no to all the wonderful sweet offerings that are constantly around me.
This week we will be going back to cooking at home and I am bringing the yoga back. I did not do one yoga practice last week. My back has been in excruciating pain from an injury nearly two years ago. I literally have no clue what happened to hurt my back, but I spent a good 3 hours at the doctors yesterday and today I am full of pain meds and muscle relaxers while we wait for my scans to come back. I do however, feel good enough that I could do some mild stretching and start to strengthen my back and core.
Many people have asked what I am eating. I am sticking pretty close to the list below and it is helping. I have joined a Facebook group that has also helped me to find recipes that are low carb and good for this diet. I am nervous that my cholesterol and triglycerides will increase so I am not as strict on this diet as I could be. I also have milk and egg allergies so I have to be careful what I eat. Most of what I am eating is honestly veggies, avocados, meat and seafood and cheese & nuts.
