Whole30 Day12: November 2013

Ah. Woke up feeling amazing again. Super excited for my coffee and coconut milk and had a date mid afternoon that tasted like pure gold.
Yeah. Taste buds change fast. 
I am at the point where I do want to give up cuz I'm kinda bored kinda tired of keeping this up and I don't want to ever stop eating this way. For now my skin is still getting better. I definitely think there's a hormone shift going on with my body. My moods are changing. My body feels different. 
But my workouts are lacking currently. I am hoping its temporary.... 

That weird looking goop in the background is leftover speghetti squash "Alfredo" from dinner the other night. 
I had way more sweet potatoes than this. Is binging on sweet potatoes a "thing"? Cuz I did. I think my body needed the carbs or the calories. Because we had some sweet potatoes last night right after. Dinner as well. Just not as many....
Dinner was put off due to yet another birthday party where I ate no cake. This is at least getting easier.  I had another Lara bar before the party thank God cuz I got home way after dinner and could only munch on veggies at said party. Dinner was more leftover steak and veggie and finished that off with some coconut butter. 
Went to bed satisfied.

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.

Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.

I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
