I really want some bread

Day five of my new Paleo lifestyle and I would really like some bread...or spaghetti...or bread and spaghetti combined in a blender.

I've been very self disciplined this week, but it has been very, very hard. I may have cried more than once. Martin says I'm going through gluten withdrawals and that's why I'm so irritable ;)
I know what you may be thinking.

"Just eat some crackers Jessica!"

But I can't.
I really want to give this new way of eating a try...this new lifestyle.  I had mentioned that eating Paleo has so many health benefits...and I've already noticed one and it hasn't even been a week! I never really noticed how bloated I have been most of my life...I thought it was just how my body was and I was beginning to come to terms with not always being able to button my pants with ease :)  
I'm looking forward to seeing more positive changes and I'm proud of myself for not giving in.  Martin told me the other day that we are choosing to eat this way and yes, others will be curious and not always understanding, but we are never to judge others for how they eat.  If people want to know more we can tell them, but we should never force our opinions on others. 

So I promise that if you eat a big cupcake with an inch of frosting in front of my face I will not judge you.  If you eat spaghetti and fruit roll ups (separate or together) I will not say a word.  

{I will just be secretly wishing it was me eating that cupcake instead of my pork chop}
