Today is the last day of the dairy elimination week. This was difficult because it took away some convenience for me. If I didn’t have a lot of time to cook, I would buy prepackaged fruit boxes from the grocery that had cheese and almonds in them. I couldn’t do this anymore, so it meant taking the time to meal prep. Another easy meal for me had been turkey roll ups, which is just turkey slices and cheese slices. I can’t do this anymore either. I managed. I got a bit creative one day and made honey almond chicken.
I lost some more weight this week, too. At weigh in this morning, I am now down to 243.8 pounds, which means I’ve lost nearly 12 and a half pounds since January 1st! Before too long, I’m going to have to buy some more clothes. My pants, in particular, are all getting to be too loose. I’ve already tightened the drawstrings on my pajamas twice.
To reward myself this week, I’ve ordered a new mug for my tea. I have mugs, but I saw this and thought I’d treat myself.
Next week is the last elimination week. It will be strict paleo after that and then reintroduction begins. Starting tomorrow, I am eliminating seeds, nuts, and refined sugars from my diet. This includes coffee and chocolate. I can still have honey and agave, as long as the agave is pure.
