Egg fast? Sureeeee why not?

So here I am, a few days post sugar detox, feeling bloated, fat, lazy, etc.  7lbs gained and I am starting to realize that carbs do matter for me.  I try to pretend that some day I'm going to be able to run 3 miles and eat rice, but I'm pretty sure that is not going to happen.
A few of my friends do these egg fasts for a couple of days and lose some weight so I'm going to try for myself.
Eggs paired with fat or cheese for a couple of days sounds so much better to get into deep ketosis then eating bricks of cream cheese.
I shall keep everyone updated on how it's going...

Oops, epic fail.

This is just a short post about being careful, and to always read labels.

Last Friday I was at the store and picked up some digestive enzymes.  I was excited, pretty hyped.  With in 48 hours of taking them I was having horrible stomach pain, actual pain not like poop or vomit, and constant headache.  I was like this for 2 days and I said to my husband, hey read that label of the enzymes in a text because I was at work, and he was home.  He answered me and told me this is an epic fail.  What did he MEAN?!?!  He soon after texted me a picture of the label that reads: "contains milk, soy, and wheat" he was very happy he didn't buy this item for me because I would have screamed at him for not reading the label. 
In short,  ALWAYS READ YOUR LABELS!  I'm getting better, but great way to set back my 21 day sugar detox results.

Updates, excuses, and anxiety

This holiday season is done.   Thank you god.  I will not soon forget the holiday season of 2014, and not all for good reasons either.
This holiday season I was overtaken by anxiety, the stress of bills,  work,  bills, work, and horrible eating habits and alcohol over the holidays left me with just about crippling anxiety.  For years when i was younger I suffered with depression that was pushed beyond what it should have been by hormonal birth control.  Well the anxiety I was suffering made that look like a walk in the park.  I have noticed eating gluten, and alcohol made it unbearable.  On a whim, I purchased HYLANDS NERVE TONIC, this has moved mountains for me.  This has definitely earned a spot in my purse forever.  Not to mention that it starts working with in a half hour.  Buy some,  believe me you will be thanking me when you wake up at 3am, heart racing, mind racing,  stomach in a knot while you think "crap, i forgot to buy toilet paper".
Now my weight has ballooned, and I have become very inactive over the holidays.  This is changing, while I'm on my 6th sugar detox.  I'm planning on working out,  getting my 10k steps a day with my fitbit, being more active,  and eating healthy.
Please join me,  let me know what you would like me to post more about, and l let's work on improving ourselves together!
