I started the week full of beans, ready to take on the world and at some point through the week my energy levels up and left. I seriously considered taking a sickie today just so I could spend it sleeping but I know I would end up cleaning the house rather than rest. I haven't been eating enough carbs, its so bloody hard to get the ratios right. Tonight I've had potato and sweet potato even though its paleo day, I hope it will give me the energy to have a kick-arse training session tomorrow. My training has been pretty good. Every time I want to slacken off I think of the scales being at 49 kg by the end of this week and that spurs me on just a little bit more.
I have had the weirdest cravings this week. Most of the week I have wanted licorice and then yesterday I felt like butter and sugar that has been creamed as well as vanilla cake batter. I'm putting it down to the fact that I'm tired and most of these foods would be an instant sugar fix. Luckily I haven't given in to these cravings, but I think the only reason I haven't is because I can't be bothered making a cake just so I can have the raw mix.
Sometimes it feels so hard as there seems to be temptation everywhere. I've learned to be very strong willed but its difficult. Again, I think about the scales and my goal weight for the week and it makes it that bit easier. My biggest test will be this weekend when we go visit my parent. My Mum is one of those mothers that always want to feed you. I think it will be easier if I supply and prep my own food and think about being at 48 kg next week!
