Whole 30 Day 2

How I’m Feeling

Getting out of bed this morning was hard. I was absolutely exhausted and, quite honestly, I felt like I did on New Years Day. I thought it was because I was over-tired – waking up presumably from the middle of a deep sleep by my rude alarm.

But then I remembered the Whole 30 Timeline and it all made sense: it’s hangover day.

All the sugar and crap I have been eating for the last two weeks are finally coming back to kick me in the butt. As it says right on the Whole 30’s official website (in bold letters), “And it is definitely true that the amount of suck you experience in this phase is directly proportional to the amount of crap you consumed before you began the program.”

Apparently this is normal. I do recall feeling like this a lot in round 1 but not so much in round 2. But I have been eating especially worse with it being the holiday season, so it makes sense.

I continue to be super thirsty so I have been keeping my water bottle close by at all times.

I haven’t had any cravings today. I have cookies all over my house that have been whispering, “eat me” but I can’t give in. I have 28 more days to go.

What I Ate Today:

Breakfast: quick and easy, I made two eggs with salt and pepper.

Snack: 1 apple, sliced

Lunch: Whole 30 Chilli from the Whole 30 Book (one of my all time favourite recipes!)

Dinner: A homemade burger with lettuce as the bun, with mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes as the toppings. (Holding it was rough so I ended up using a knife and fork to eat it. IMG_1360.JPG

I hope the next few meals look appetizing. I need to make egg muffins so I have quick and easy (but filling) breakfast in the morning.

Until tomorrow!
