Ashley's Whole30 journal (Day 5)

Friday, January 22, 2016

Well, I'm back to the drawing board! After a few years of complete denial about the stress I was under, and the joy of bringing a baby into the world, I'm now back up 50 lbs with a total of 70 to lose. Boy oh boy I did not think I would be in this situation. I can either beat myself up, or change it and I choose the latter!

DH and I started the Whole30 on Monday and it's been interesting to say the least. A few nights ago I had a dream I licked a brownie and I woke up feeling guilty! Then today I noticed that I wanted ALL THE FOOD. I was driving home and thought "oh, it's Friday, I'll pick up a pizza for dinner...oh no I won't", then "I need to stop for gas. Wawa has $1 coffees, I'll run in and get a 24oz coffee with yummy creamer, oh wait", then "well I can have some hot chocolate later. That's perfect for this snow storm...." and it has gone on and on and on all night. According to the book this is completely normal (even the dream about the brownie) but I'm ready to move into the next phase.

The good news is, the food I'm eating is yummy, my pants are looser than they were on Monday, and...in a moment of weakness, I may have hopped on the scale real quick this morning and been proud of the number I saw. Yes, I'm aware I'm not supposed to weigh myself for 30 days. No, I'm not starting over.

If you're interested in the details of the program, here's the book I'm using
8-2&keywords=whole+30 .

25 days to go!

    The cravings go away once you train your mind and body to eat whole, real foods. Just don't go back to eating those foods after the 30 days!

    just wishing you can't eat yourself to the drinks and food you use to have just proves how high the intake of calories you consumed weekly. When you change your eating pattern to be healthy, you need to change pretty much mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It just isn't counting calories and exercising. It's a whole package of changes you need to do to be successful. Best of luck.
