(Day 16) Whole 30 [Day 10 Recap]
Wednesday, August 15, 2018
FEELING AMAZING. My energy feels stable, no afternoon crashes. I got a little grumpy in the evening when leaving work, just some personal stuff.
I would usually order pizza, eat ice cream, or drink wine or beer, "to take the edge off" but I did not do any of those things! I grumpily prepped my dinner and ate it.
I did have to sit with my feelings and work through it, but that's healthier than turning to my comfort foods.
I prepped the spaghetti squash last night, which I'm learning is key. If I have the help at home, and the extra time, I should prep my veggies.
Cooking protein doesn't take a long time for me, it's all the other sides that are draining. The chopping, slicing, cooking - takes up so much time. I can easily put some chicken in the oven and do something else, if all my sides are prepped.
(But now that I type that out... maybe I should cook my protein ahead of time and prep my veggies as I need. Veggies tend to go bad faster and that way I'm eating them as fresh as possible... hmmmm maybe a plan for Week 3!)
Got sleepy around 9 pm, probably fell asleep around 10:30. I think I need to prioritize my sleep. I feel like I'm missing out because I'm not watching TV as much as I used to or taking time to read the books I want. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Which isn't bad... just an new habit.
I know days 10 and 11 are generally when most people quit. But I feel great.
