Reality Checks

Whole 30 Week #3

Ok, I thought last week was hard, but I was wrong.  This week was actually the worst – and it really didn’t have as much to do with the diet as it did the job, but that’s when I miss sweets the most.

I mentioned last week that the low energy was getting to me.  That and an an unexpected upward swing on the scale had me ready to chuck the whole thing.  I was tired, grumpy, and just wanted some damn chocolate.

Then finally on Friday morning, I woke up before my alarm with a decent amount of energy.  I had a great run (best one I think in months) and finally felt like I had turned a corner.  The day seemed to be going so well at work too – I had managed to handle the current crises, had a clear plan and a communicated vision to the team… only to get some really bad news at the tail end of the day right before I headed home.  Sigh.

Why did I decide to do a Whole30 during the busiest month of the year?  I must be slightly unhinged.

At least we had some good food this week:

Next week I’ll be travelling for work for a couple of days, so we’ll see how well I’m able to stick to plan.

Is it over yet?  A glass of wine would be the ticket right about now.

  1. I feel your pain. I am on Day 23 and last Friday all I kept thinking was “Why in the hell did I decide to do this now?”. Work has been beyond crazy and there have been a few days that I just wanted to shove my head in a gallon of ice cream. But I didn’t and I am so glad!!

    1. It’s definitely not easy. When I’m about to cave, I just think of everyone out there who’s doing it with me, and just can’t bring myself to give in. Stay strong!
