Whole30 day 3: November 2013

It's officially day 3, but this will be my fourth sugar free night.  Nights are the hardest for me. I want wine or chocolate so much. And I have to remind myself that my life does not depend on it. And that this will pass. And that this is why I am doing this - so I am not dependent on these substances.

I had a tough morning. I got some news I was just frustrated about, and I also had to vaguely deal with some issues from my past that I had to trudge up. So I'm sitting at work now, trying to concentrate, fight off the "sugar demon" and decide whether or not I want to put my energy into a crossfit workout this evening or wait until morning. I'm going through sugar withdrawals....that sounds silly but so far my anxiety has progressively gotten worse(It hasn't been bad since I started working out regularly) and of course my body craves it at certain times of the day when it's used to it.
I had breakfast late today. if I ever do this again I'm freezing a months worth of meals before hand. assuming I have the money.
Also, tonight I have had cookies in my face, pb&j in front of me, PB on my hand, candy in my hands, and a giant display of chocolate candy I had to walk past. Today seemed harder. 
My body feels good though. Tired in the evening but I don't feel bloated and no stomach aches. It feels like I've been doing this for a long time. Throughout the whole day I'm hot and cold. Never ever giving up. But in the morning I'm great and think I may do this longer than 30 days. As the day goes on I fluctuate from hating it and can't wait to shove my face in a giant cake to loving it and empowered by the willpower. I'm trying to remember the positive emotions :)

I'm pretty excited to wake up and drink my coffee in the morning. 
I can't wait to not be so irritated.

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum.
