Day 2 into eating Paleo and the day I planned to start P90 I wake up with a sore throat and cough! My poor son was miserable all day so after calling the ENT and our local clinic I had to bring him into the clinic and low and behold he tests positive for the Flu!! The kids and I have been sick for 3 days now! Its definitely not fun! Worst of all we didn't get to do Halloween! Thank goodness my kids are all just young enough they don't realize what they are missing out on. Last night after sanitizing myself I put candy and Posh on the porch for the kids and their moms. akposh.com

I know it isn't a full moon, but my kids were acting like it was. Naps were off, tantrums, fighting over everything and now my son is falling asleep next to me on the couch because he was fighting bedtime so bad he was almost throwing up. On a good note the twins did great during and after their ear tube surgery on Monday. They were a bit whiny afterwards but were back to normal the next day. Cracklin Chicken recipe I got from Nom Nom Paleo. I'm making that often! I also made cauliflower rice and roasted squash. akposh.com

I was very excited to finally gets this dress in after waiting 2 months for it. I'm glad it fits and it looks pretty darn good ;) That is my feel good moment the last couple days.
Having three young toddlers is hard. It's even harder when you go off antidepressants and are fine, until one day you are not fine at all. Three days into getting them out of my system and I did not feel in control over my emotions at all.
Walking or exercising helped in the moment to relax me, but ultimately I decided for my sanity and my kids I would go back on them. I don't want my kids to grow up worrying about why mommy is always upset or crying the joys of hormonal changes after having children.
I was very surprised with how I handled my eating while I've been having a hard time. When I'm upset I normally go for chocolate, or peanut butter and chocolate. I didn't stray from whole 30 at all, even though I really wanted the cookies and snacks my kids were eating because I was stressed. It's a miracle I didn't cave!!
Before I could drink my coffee, they were all in my lap yesterday morning.
I have gotten a couple workouts in, but will be glad to do some P90X3 and T25 tomorrow. I took my daughter to the movies for the first time so I skipped my workout this evening. Back to work tomorrow!

My husband has been trying to make me budge on my paleo diet and is having a hard time with how strict I'm being, and asked me if I had weighed myself to know if it was working. I said no, I'm not supposed to weigh-in until the end. Well I was kind of bothered by that so I decided to weigh myself this morning and was surprised to see I had lost 6.5lbs. I started Whole 30 at 237.0 lbs and I'm at 230.5! I was so happy to prove how well it's working! It will help even more now that I'm adding in workouts.
I am feeling so good! I love how energized and healthy I feel. I'm never hungry between meals anymore, so no snacking at all unless I workout in the evening and then I have something like a banana and almond butter.
I did P90X3 at noon while the kid napped. I was planning to nap with them, but decided once they were all asleep to just do it and get a workout in. Of course 2 minutes before I'm done, Jordan decides to wake up from an extra short nap. Luckily her crying stopped when she was zoned out watching me sweat my ass off doing kicks, jabs and sprawls!
I am loving the food and want to come up with something a little different so my husband doesn't get bored with trying the paleo stuff I'm cooking. I Love avocados and have either 1/2 or 1/4 of one at every meal so I feel fuller longer. I also have an amazing trick for keeping your avocado green all day after you cut it.
Cut it in half and leave the pit in. Take 1/4 of the avocado flesh or 1/2 from the side without the out and try to keep the skin as intact as possible, if it rips or anything it will still work.
My avocado this morning after taking 1/4 for breakfast.
Lay the skin from the avocado on top of the half with the pit, just like it was still a whole avocado.
I used the other 1/4 at lunch and then did the same thing to keep the rest from going bad.
This is what it looked like at dinner :) then I ate the last half.
I also got an awesome workout in with my friend this evening. We will be working out every night doing T25 :) I love it!

Today I called my doctor to see if I can try going off my antidepressants since my mood has been amazing just eating healthy, and I was given the green light to try it! Woohoo no more feeling sedated and all thanks to eating completely healthy! If I feel weird or anything I may have to take them every other day but I'm so excited, cause it's been almost 2 years of yo-yoing to different meds since I had the twins. Plus I feel like I've lost quite a bit of weight already. I can't wait to weigh-in in August!
