We had our annual family reunion picnic on the weekend… my cousin said “Wow! You look fantastic!”
🙂 🙂 🙂
I always liked her… 🙂
However, The Leptin reset has been a failure for me.
Or, rather, I failed at the Leptin reset…
I simply cannot eat so much food so early in the morning… So, I am tweaking it – Dr Jack would probably roll his eyes – but, I would eat the huge protein breakfast within 1/2 an hour of waking – then I would be uncomfortable for the rest of the day.
It just didn’t feel right.
My tweak? Well, I still eat protein for my first meal – just not as much, and I eat around 9ish – instead of at 6ish.
I’m not eating lunch – I simply am not the smallest bit hungry. And I have noticed that I get full much faster at dinner-time. AND, Dr Jack says one of the first effects women notice once their Leptin normalizes is they feel calmer…. which for me means, when the students over the back fence had their second noisy party of the week, I just rolled my eyes and tried to go back to sleep…whereas previously I would lie there and fume until steam poured out of my ears.
The bottom line is still the same – lack of sleep, but – there’s nothing I can do about other people’s children, right? 🙂
I’m still not eating sugar. I do still crave something sweet every now and then though, but the cravings are manageable and I haven’t given in. So, I guess – though I’m not doing the reset the way I should (should – my least favourite word in the world) – it still seems to be working. 🙂
I spent yesterday afternoon trying to put together a compost tumbler… sigh… I got it done. It took 2 1/2 hours… I should have blisters on my hands – they are really sore … AND my back is killing me…
Summer is something of a wash-out thus far. We’ve had the odd lovely day, but mostly it’s been grey and windy, with the occasional storm – though the veggie garden has finally started to produce and I’m off to pick tomatoes… 🙂
