I'm counting yesterday as a success. My goal was to eat at regular intervals, not let my hunger get out of control, and restrain from the sweets. Well, I did eat at regular intervals. I did not let my hunger get out of control. I did however, have some sweets. After lunch I had a couple of cookies and after dinner I had some cake. Now, the real problem here is not so much that I ate them, the cookies I wanted, it's that I really didn't want the cake. I'm not a fan of that cake. At. All. The cake is a little dry and the icing is weird - peanut butter and cream cheese. Yet, I ate it. Actually, I ate 2 slices. Yeah, don't like it so I eat 2 slices. Awesome. But, I am still counting yesterday as a success. Oh yes, I got to Crossfit also. So, a rousing success. I plan to repeat the meals and crossfit and work to eliminate the sweets today. I'm thinking of dumping the cake completely and I have other snacks that I may just throw in the freezer - out of sight, out of mind. Regardless of trying to lose weight or anything, I want to feel good and eating right does that for me.

I pretty much decided the other day that I am over this whole losing weight thing. I have spent so many years of my life focused on my weight and what I eat, I am really, really tired of it. I decided the other day that I was going to focus on primarily a paleo diet, meat and veggies, and try not to get too involved in the numbers of anything. I am so over this whole weight thing. I just want to eat right, work out and live my life.

So there you have it. On today's agenda is some cleaning and some school work. I have some reading to do, which I am going to do on the treadmill, and I want to get some stuff written so I don't have to deal with it later in the week. I would also like to do some organizing. The major clean up is basically done, now I just need to organize what remains. But first, a nice, healthy breakfast.

Update: I have made it through the day fairly well and I just need a little boost to get through this evening. I did have a brownie after lunch, but that was it. I stopped when the brownie was gone. I did have a pretty lazy day too. My knee was really bothering me when I got up and I walked really slow on the treadmill and that helped a whole lot. It felt really good most of the day, I just took it really easy. I did go to Crossfit and modified the movements so the knee still feels pretty darn good. Now, I just need to make it through the rest of the night without going crazy. Help me do that...
