    PLEASE share your recipes!! I honestly struggle so much with diet and it is because I eat the same stuff over and over Then get bored and cheat. If you know of any good sites or whatnot, share the wisdom haha. And way to go

    So, there are two things I really like to do lately that have made me feel really awesome. I don't count calories really. I do substitute cooking (the very basics of that is baking vs frying for example) and eating fresh, high quality foods without additives and extra stuff in them. I'm leaning towards paleo-style cooking, and raw/vegan style servings, because those things just give more protein and more clean foods in general.

    These are sites I really love:
    - Raw/Vegan: Raw, vegan, not gross.. And raw Kristina. And rawsome vegan life.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/FullyRawKristina

    http://www.thisrawsomeveganlife.com/

    - Paleo stuff: Stupid Easy paleo
    http://stupideasypaleo.com/
    http://nomnompaleo.com/

    - Clean, anti-inflammatory eating: Betty rocker, oh she glows
    http://ohsheglows.com/2012/08/30/coc...hoto-tutorial/
    http://thebettyrocker.com/betty-rockers-recipes/

    - Substitution diet: Skinnytaste. I get a majority of my recipes from here, using clean foods instead sometimes. You can literally find almost anything on this site. And chocolate covered katie.

    Oh, and for whenever I want to be fancy:
    http://www.innatthecrossroads.com/


    Basically, I decide what I want (Mexican, sandwiches, breakfast food, savory, soup, etc.) and I pick out a recipe. To make things easier on me right now since I am in school, I generally eat the same exact things for breakfast and lunch, and change it up with dinner (and I can make something out of the leftovers for lunch the next day sometimes.) Usually it's: overnight oatmeal for breakfast, fruit for a snack, a sandwich and/or some soup or leftovers from dinner last night, some kind of sweet dessert for a snack, then whatever I feel like/whatever we have ingredients for for dinner.

    Nothing this week. Between having a mini-breakdown, appointments, and school work...zero. No exercises except some walking. I don't remember what I ate this week...something.

    But on the positive side, I found another medicine I can take to help me sleep. I can actually get some decent sleep with it and have a decrease of pain. This is really important because pain and fatigue is the first cycle that has to be broken with EDS. I think I will be ready to start exercising/going back to PT again next week.

    Good week. I got all 7 out 7 P90X3 workouts in, and I was stronger during week 2 than I was during week 1.

    When it comes to my diet, I'm still stuck at 80% healthy choices, and 20% unhealthy choices. The latter of which is still slowing down my progress. Having said that, I am losing some weight.

    Update for last week (17?) - my first total, utter failure. Ending up working way more hours than expected to get a big project done, really short on sleep all week. Two of the days I skipped I was up past 4am working, and the last bodyweight day was also the day I submitted the project, so I got home at midnight and was just so done. Oh yeah, and I went to physio twice that week because I didn't think ahead when I was booking it, and it made my ankle hurt WAY worse (and not in a healing way) and cost me 150$ for the privilege. So failure all around.

    But I am back at it this week (day 1=sunday). I felt a lot weaker already. On the plus side, my shoulder feels better after the "rest", and my ankle is back to normal-ish finally, a week after physio.

    80% is pretty good, true, but that 20% is slowing down my progress. I suspect it cancels it out completely at times. I'd prefer to hit a 90/10 ratio.

    Of course, I can continue dreaming the dream of being able to actually quit eating refined sugar!

    Tonight is the last work out for week 1 of the challenge! Whoo! P90X has been supplementing it all very well too Luckily for me all of this is portable so I can work out on my vacation! Can't be lazy now!!

    My body feels far, far better too. It helps that finals have somehow given me more time for food (aka being actively at home vs away at school) while giving me less time in my life overall. Vegan is NOT my forte.

    So far, sprouted breads are awesome. I tried the paleo breads, and those SUCK, don't try them unless you want fluff-less bricks. Seriously, they're just terrible.. they don't taste THAT bad, but they don't feel at all like bread. Instead, I've been eating Ezekiel 4:9 products. I'm going to try the hot-dog buns tomorrow, and I tried the tortillas today, and this is my second style of bread from them. They need the fridge, but they taste like bread, and they're super great really. A little more.. dense.. than normal bread. But you can only REALLY tell that when you're trying to have regular toast with jam or something. Sandwich tastes like a sandwich with them. I'm just trying to go down the line and modify one thing at a time--condiments, drinks, and breads are at the top of the list because, frankly, I use those the most. So, I'm switching out those things as I use them up for better, more sustainable stuff. It'll take me a while to adjust to that anyways. I loooove toppings and condiments.

    Also, coconut butter is a really cool thing to try. Very coconut-like smell, and a sliiight coconut taste, but it really does give you the texture and flavor-category as butter. Really, really cool. I can't wait to try it on some paleo pancakes.
