Rest Day Results in Bad Hair, But Great Resolve!

Today was one of those rare days that I actually took a full rest day. Not even a lick of cardio was done. I work for myself and today was also a rest day from visiting clients onsite.  I didn’t have to do my hair, put on the fancy clothes, or care at all what I look like.

This results in samurai-esque hair and comfortable clothes.

It also results in my brain taking time to sort through what they heck is really going on with me and my obsessive need to eat all the peanut butter in the house.

I have set a new goal, an audacious goal, to understand why I eat emotionally. It is going to be QUITE the journey, but if I can put on a bedazzled suit, walk on a stage in front of hundreds of people and feel like a million bucks; I can do this.  I AM doing this.

Watch out world, here I come eating only real food with my toothbrush in tow!!

  1. omg you and i were on the fake food road, i have cut my down to only a little bit of sugar free syrup in my coffee once per day. I dont do soda anymore (just sparkling water and a sugar free rock star once in a while) and isn’t it amainzg how it changes your mood??? I was drinking a ton of diet soda each day! No wonder why I was irritable so much! GOOD FOR YOU and I love the hair, looks familiar!

  2. Way to go, Donloree! Eating real food or clean eating as I’ve seen it referred to lately is one of my recent goals too so I’m looking forward to hearing more about that part of your journey.

    Hey Donloree,

    Where did you get the package of quinoa? I can’t seem to find any when I go grocery shopping. Thanks for sharing…the past two posts have been inspiring for me.



    • Jo-Anne I found that package of quinoa at Costco. I found it with the soups and whatnot in between the coffee and baking goods. It is the best price for quinoa around! I think the whole package is $8, whereas 1 cup of quinoa at the grocery store is about $2. Also try the bulk section of your grocery store. Sometimes it is sold from the big bins! Let me know when you find it and what you think. I LOVE it!

  4. Keep up the good work. I FINALLY found some what I think is Greek Yogurt. It’s called Balkan plain yogurt. Really think and of course tastes great with frozen raspberries.

  5. Don’t even know where to start on how much I agree with your new philosophy, yet how much I also struggle with the same thing. One day I will just put a tablespoon of real maple syrup on my pancakes and just enjoy it. Three cheers for real food!

  6. I think that is the advantage I have living on the other side of the world, we dont have all the fancy fake food that you guys do, so thankfully I eat pretty “real” 🙂

    You could always come live down under you know … 😉

  7. Great video, as always! I really like your approach to figuring out WHY you want to eat certain foods. I may give that a try … could be interesting! 🙂

  8. I’ve been on a downward spiral, so thanks for this! Today I emptied my house of all the bad foods and went grocery shopping. Also made some turkey meatloaf muffins so I’ll have them for the rest of the week. I feel like I am out of control when I don’t plan ahead or get off of my normal routine. Peanut Butter? Let’s just say, I’d bathe naked in it if that’s at all possible =)

    • Good work woman! Routine is a huge help for me. One day I hope to be able to do well no matter where I am or who I am with! Small steps.
      I will stay away from the peanut butter if you do!!

    So…I watched your clip after finishing off my spoonful of peanut butter and chocolate chips. You are not alone. Great to hear what success you’re having in your journey of “self”. Inspiring and honest. Good luck Donloree!

  10. This post is GREAT !!!!!!! So many of us have the EXACT same issues, please share what you learn along your journey. Thank you thank you thank you. !!
