Ok so it is Day 8 of my Whole30 diet/program and I am becoming weary. The enthusiasm is gone for the both the diet, cooking and the label reading. I am dying to step on the scale to see if any progress has been made to my weight or body composition (which is a no no on this program).
Am I doing the program perfectly, nope ….. but I am doing the best I can. In the last 8 days I have broken down and had a Chai Tea Latte – though sugar-free and with non sweetened almond milk, 4 times. It is like an addiction I can’t quite break. I can barely stomach food in the morning so I drink a chai. I can barely stomach all the meat and vegetables at any time, but I am trying my best to eat it, but sometimes I just want to puke! I am tired mostly of the upset tummy. With my internal set up with no colon and a shortened small intestine – I don’t know if I can handle all this whole food stuff. Too much of a good thing may not be good, cause I sure am feeling it. I am craving carbs!
I want to eat healthy for the long term and get healthy, but Wow – this is difficult!
So for now I will continue to do the best that I can and if I have to cheat a little bit, I am still doing better and eating better than I have in a long time. It might not be the whole reset of the body and mind that is the purpose of this diet. This all or nothing thinking has to go!!!!
