Well, I’ll be damned.

I NEVER EVER EVER thought this day was possible. My kids are a little down at the moment. Missing the US & our family/friends, tired, sick, etc. Despite the fact that I know I shouldn’t use food as a pick me up, I decided to do exactly that. I made brownies this afternoon and the kids were totally psyched.

The reason I am psyched is that I didn’t even want one!!!! I have never gone this long without having some sort of dessert/sweets/chocolate and I am completely surprised by the disappearance of cravings. Yes...I read the Lessons and am aware that Kenzai said this would happen, but for me it was a case of “I’ll believe it when I feel it”. Or don’t feel it....

I’ve managed to start back w the jump rope and so far, my pelvic floor is on my side. The cardio is definitely getting better. I swim a couple nights a week and I notice I am faster and not as winded as my usual. The coaches are wondering if I’m using a performance enhancing drug.

Food is still sometimes tricky- esp when I need to eat out or run out of food ready-prepped in the fridge. Getting better though...Below is a photo of dinner....chicken w pesto (I think there a bit of oil in the pesto), red cabbage sautéed w a bit of Apple cider vinegar and thin apple slices, & broccoli rabe sautéed w garlic.

I hope everyone is doing well & starting to settle into their own groove too!!

    It is good to know you can still surprise yourself, Jennifer! Such a connection between the mind and the body. I hope your kids are feeling better today, change is easy/hard/easy/hard for kids, you are an awesome mom for baking up some good old American treats--and for not eating one yourself. Go, Jennifer, go!!

      I know what you mean about the cravings disappearing! Someone at work was passing around a box of pineapple tarts (they're my absolute favourite!) and I didn't even feel like taking one!

        Great win Jennifer! Stay strong and committed to the diet.

        I hear you on the “not as winded as usual”. I have felt better with my BJJ as well.

          Fantastic! How amazing to have brownies in the house and not want any. Not sure I'm that strong yet--my kids aren't getting any brownies. They're being forced to eat lots of fruit, just like me. ;-)
