Fig and Strawberry Cashew Bars

Two Months!

60 days!

11 pounds!

That’s right! I’ve lost 11 pounds.

I am so excited.

I’ve been eating so much better and I’ve gotten used to cooking more. The planning can still be a bit off, but I’m doing really good.

Yes, I still have a taste of what I’ve made for the two blogs, but that’s it. Just a taste.

I don’t indulge in pasta and bread 🙁 Something that I do miss. But I think it’s more of the convenience factor of the food that I miss the most.

It’s easy to boil water to make pasta and a microwave a frozen veggie pack for dinner. It’s work to roast carrots and cauliflower while preparing chicken.

I think if you talk to anybody trying to lose weight, they are all going to tell you that it’s hard work. There is nothing easy about it. It’s a slow and arduous process.

I think about food EVERY. MINUTE.

What am I going to eat when… Am I going to be home? Am I running errands? Where will I be for dinner? Can I find someplace for lunch? Should I bring an apple with me?  Can I afford to eat out again? (Generally the paleo meals are more expensive)

All. The. Time!

Also, I’ve kinda stopped working out. I know, I know… I NEED to work out. I was doing well, but the weight would not budge when I was working out. And I was so much hungrier during the day.

My body wanted food and I guess I wasn’t feeding it enough, so my body wasn’t giving up any reserves if I was going to demand it to exercise.

It’s a vicious cycle.

I’ll get back into it soon (she types with good intentions).

In the mean time, these bars were so good! I loved them! They were perfect for an on the go snack or a little munchie to hold me over for dinner. I really, really liked them!
