I have survived 18 days of an extremely strict diet. This really has consumed my life the past few few weeks so I haven’t been blogging much. But, I am over the hump and only have 12 days left! I have not cheated at all, although I desperately want to. Mainly for the food but also for the ease. This diet also means I have not eaten out in 18 days!! For someone that eats out at least once a week an often times more, this is hard. That also means I have to plan and think about every meal I eat. That in itself is exhausting. Grocery store trips are painful looking at all of the food I can’t eat. It’s more mental than physical. If your wondering about my diet and haven’t read my previous blog post take a look here.
But in the last few days I have experimented with some “treats”. I made a cheesecake and banana blueberry muffins that are part of the specific carbohydrate diet. That means no flour, cream cheese or sugar. I used almond flour and honey and some other tricks. They actually came out pretty good!

Banana blueberry muffins!
This has seriously been hell. I am hoping that at some point I switch over to thinking I don’t need that food but at this point all I can think about is need need need!
I need biscuits. I need pancakes. I need breakfast sausage. I need wings. I need ranch. I need french fries. I need chocolate. I need them all in my veins!
And what keeps me moving forward is always thinking it could be worse. A lot worse. This isn’t that bad.
So keep pushing through whatever hard time you are going through and I’ll do the same.
