Whole30 Day 16 &17

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Day 16 Tuesday: I played hooky yesterday on accident. Had every intention on going to work, but life did not make it possible. Oh well. Breakfast was bacon, eggs, and a red pepper. I was bored and continued to eat all day long! I tried sardines finally, since I found a brand that was compliant. They were delicious! Then I ate a peach. Then I ate leftover chicken. Then I ate prosciutto. Then I ate roast beef. Then I ate cantaloupe. Eat Eat Eat Eat. I started a new knitting project and got some online group fitness certification courses done. I learned what an iliopsoas is.. even my computer doesn't know what that is 'cause it's trying to spell-check iliopsoas.
I went to pole class just because I could. Had a fantastic time as usual, and all my fav polers were there.
Came home and made a spicy meatloaf from, you guessed it-- PaleOMG. Yes I ate again.

I've been getting "cravings" that are unlike anything I've ever experienced before. For instance, unprovoked and out of the blue my brain will flash to PINK ICED ANIMAL CRACKERS. I haven't had an animal cracker in a decade, but for half a second I can smell them, I can taste them in my mouth. Then it's over. Christmas cookies, sugar wafers, laffy taffy, red vines. They've all flashed in my brain, then disappeared. It's weird man.

Day 17 Wednesday: Breakfast was turkey & broccoli scramble, coffee w/ coconut milk. I gave away my soybean oil sardines, sadly because they were mediterranean flavored. Went to a relatively easy interval class (I remembered a pre-WO meal! I ate some tuna) and then had meatloaf leftovers. Now I'm contemplating on stopping by Whole Foods and picking up some sausage for dinner. I'm feeling extra lazy, I don't really see cooking in my future.

We found out that our NY trip might get canceled. The army always ruins our plans! Shhh.. here's a secret.. I wouldn't be too disappointed if we didn't go. Yes, I'd like to meet his family and wear the cute dress I bought for the party, but it's a lot easier to do Whole30 at home.

****So this just happened.
Cupcakes & cake for a vp's birthday. I had to be near it, watch it being cut. This was the first time I felt DEPRIVED. Man, this is tough.

I went and got coffee. But I still really want cake. Thank god I told a few coworkers about Whole30, otherwise I would've caved. Moving on.....

    You're doing great! Congratulations on staying strong around the cake! It's crazy how strong sugar cravings can be. You may have felt deprived, but your body will thank you.
