12: Whole 30 Journey
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
Feeling much ore energized today, although I did sleep after work. I worked 3:30-9:10 this morning and I couldn't sleep much last night so that would explain the tiredness after work.
I had my chiropractic adjustment and electrotherapy this afternoon. Next week I should be getting new x-rays and scans to check the progress and see if I still have any sublaxations.
Tonight I am going to do a little research on ways to deal with emotions other than turning to food. I bought a book on Amazon about meditations to try that out. I want to see what I can do to be proactive about lessening the impact of my depression.
I stayed on track today with food. Still needs some tweaking as you all have seen from previous blogs but I am educating myself more each day.
Hubby has had so many treats lately, and while it bothers me at the same time it doesn't. I get excited by the fact that if I keep working at it I can eventually weigh less than him! Those curly fries may smell delicious but they have nothing on me!!
One of the funny things about this journey is how much of a difference in smell I have now. Sometimes when I get a craving I will take a moment to smell it and tell myself that I am stronger than whatever that particular food is I "want". Today at work I came across some scented candle melts and one of them was red velvet cake. I am pretty sure I spent a good couple of minutes smelling the box because it smelled fantastic. Don't worry no red velvet cake in the house and no plans on cheating over here.
