20: Whole 30 Journey
Thursday, August 01, 2013
No weight today.
Hard to believe that I am 20 days into this whole 30. Today since I had off I spent some time contemplating what to do when I reach day 30. I'm still not sure what my decision is going to be but I have a week or so to figure that out yet.
While I am on whole 30, I can tell my focus is slipping. I have mentioned my depression/anxiety on here and that is a part of the issue. I did go to the doctor the other day, hoping that he could help me but I think he just brushed it off as no big deal. There are literally so many loose ends in my life right now that really are taking the focus and energy away from me. These are things that I have to deal with when I set my next set of goals.
Another big issue that I have been dealing with is cravings for sweets. I know that this is eventually supposed to go away...but it hasn't. I talked to the doctor about candida and that could very well be the issue. So tomorrow I should hear from the doctor and get the script to treat that problem. I think this has something to do with the mental struggle I have been having lately because I get so close to giving in and can't get past the feelings of being deprived.
Now, it's already been obvious to me that doing whole 30 has really been a benefit as I have lost over 20 pounds since my injury and I feel like I can easily lose more when I figure out these other issues I mentioned. So I do know that my next plans and goals will involve whole 30. I am debating on whether to continue the whole 30 to a whole 60 or whole 90 or just completely reset at day 1. I am leaning more towards the second option just because I know more now than I did during the beginning of this journey. While I haven't really cheated, part of me still feels like a cheat for whatever reason. Although most of you would probably tell me to continue past day 30 and not reset...it really could go either way to be honest.
