I am exhausted. I think all the many things I do are finally catching up with me. I love my life but man I am non stop. We started little league and we have practice 4-5 days a week. We have been eating out alot and I think life as we know it is over until June. I have 4 months until school is over and I get the whole summer off, but for now school is kicking me in the butt. I am getting to the end of the quarter when I need to step it up and get things done and I almost can't find the time. So enough about my crazy life because I know we all feel the same way sometimes.
So lets talk about diet, I haven't dieted in weeks, I just haven't had the time or energy to put into it. When we are stopping for fast food almost every night it doesn't help.
I broke out with a rash all down my left side, on my stomach, and my right hand. It is the same rash I had a few years ago and they never figured out what it was. I spent the last few days doing reserch and talking with doctors and the only thing I can figure out is that it is candidia. Candidia is to much yeast in your intestine and stomach. Some people get yeast innfections, some people get mouth infections, and others get rashes. The only way to get it out of your system is to do a diet with very low carbs and and no sugar. Yeast lives on sugar and carbs break down to sugar so the yeast has lots to feed on. Some of the sympoms are low energy, adult acne, rashes, among other things. So on Monday I am going to be doing a diet designed to help get rid of thie painful rash. It is called the caveman diet, basically it is meat, veggies, and nuts. I am going to try to avoid fast food, sugar, and carbs and see if it helps the rash.
Well I am sorry I haven't posted recently I have just been down on myself about giving up again .

Sorry to hear about the rash. Bummer. Hopefully the low carb, no sugar thing will work. Plus, it can't hurt the waistline either! :O) And don't be down on yourself. I did miss your postings, but remember, you are not defined by what you weigh. Just keep on doing what you can, whenever you can. You'll get there (to your goal) eventually. Just don't give up altogether and view it as a lifelong journey where there's bound to be good days and bad. If life is too crazy one day to make perfect choices...don't be hard on yourself, just make better choices the next time that life circumstances allow. :O) Love ya sis!

Ali, don't give up. All you can do is start again. Don't beat yourself up for how things go one day, or one week. Just start fresh and keep going, and do what you can. I think we all believe in you, or we wouldn't be checking in and reading your blog. I think you are super brave, and I always like to see how things are going with you. In life, things aren't always smooth, and that is life and that is honest. Just hang in there.
