Toot it and Reboot it...

Hi friends!!

I got called back for a second interview with that company...tomorrow afternoon.  I am really excited and nervous, so I'm trying right now not to think about it too much.  Eeeek!!

I am also trying really hard to get a grip on my eating and I think I'm finally making a little head way.  I've decided to cut out sugar again for awhile- for one thing it just makes me feel like crap.  It really does.  Not right away- not while I'm eating it...but, 10 minutes after I eat it maybe?  Sometimes it doesn't even take 10 minutes.  I'm not sure when it hits, but it messes me up.  I will not be hungry for awhile after eating, I'll feel really full, and then out of nowhere I'll be starving and feeling sick because I'm so hungry.  But it's not REAL hunger, it's this weird's hard to explain unless you've experienced what I'm talking about (which I'm sure you all have).  It's like, I'm hungry but I'm still full from the last time I ate.  I don't know.  I go to bed way too full and wake up full; even if I haven't eaten around bed time. After cutting out sugar from my diet for 3 months and then only eating it sparsely (until Chicago), now I can tell the difference between when I eat too much of it and how my body feels with or without it.  So it's out for now.  I've gained 5 pounds and I haven't been able to lose it- and I blame sugar and Diet Coke and Coke Zero and any other dark soda that I've been consuming.

I didn't eat any sugar yesterday and actually didn't eat anything until 5 o'clock last night.  Yes, I was hungry and I know it's not smart to starve yourself- but I really wanted to reboot my system because I woke up full and feeling like crap yet again yesterday and I was over it.  I've been feeling like shit physically for 2 weeks now.  I'm tired constantly and full and feeling ill constantly.  I wake up thirsty and full and it's not normal for me.  I usually fast for about 24 hours once a month and I've learned that it really helps me reboot when I need it- so I did a half day instead of a full day yesterday to get back on track- you know, 12 or so hours.  I feel so much better already and i've been eating so much better since the reboot.  Today I've had some oatmeal for breakfast, an orange and some pretzels for a snack, sumi salad and roasted brussel sprouts for lunch, and half a banana with some peanut butter this afternoon for a snack.  I'm about to go for a run now and hopefully some yoga and then I'll have a nice dinner, which I'm super excited about.  I love feeling better!!!! :)

It's almost March my friends!  Studies show that the majority of us have abandoned our New Year's resolutions by are you doing??




  1. congrats on the callback, Diz! i loved reading this post. you are tightening your grip, and the weight doesn't stand a chance. i feel the same about rebooting. i binged sunday, and i ate one meal monday, about 5 pm, too, actually; and i know it's not good to starve, but i feel like it's helped me reboot. i love that word, btw!!!

    thanks again for your support on my last post. i read it and Deb's before i went in for the interview, and i know it was one major reason i stayed calmer than i thought i would.

  2. This is such an exciting time for you! Good luck with the callback babes!

    I'm so glad it's almost March, but wow..time flies!

  3. Woohooo, second interview! :D Ask good questions...questions that will help you know if you want the job. :D Yeah, I know you would do that without me saying it. Deb

  4. Glad you were able to reboot. I think it would take more like 72 hours of no food for me to reboot myself. haha

    All I can think about at this moment is cookies. Why does food have to be so damn good? Why Lord, why?????

    I think the carb free thing I have been attempting once again, needs to go. I just can't go without carbs. I feel bad when I don't eat any carbs. What to do! What to do!

  5. Love the reboot! Its so true that our bodies need to get back on track. I have been doing low carb for about 4 a month and I can't believe how different I feel. I know you can do it! Keep looking ahead!

  6. Okay okay okay - how did it go? I'm about it now! LOL
