Whole30: Day 2, a screw up and a near miss

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Day two I am not yet feeling the full withdrawals of the program (oh but I will) however while happily munching on my salad tonight I thought it needed more kick and only after adding more craisins (dumping them, really) did I wonder how such a tart berry could be sweet and why I was wanting to cram a full cup of them in my mouth? Ah. Sugar.

So tomorrow is day 1 again. But while the cranberry debacle is good enough I had a real issue tonight. First, I kept eating those damn cranberries thinking, Might as well finish them (I stopped myself after a few) and second I really thought about just having cheese and leftover pasta since I had already screwed up. Second day and I am ready to throw in the towel.

The truth is, nights are hard. Nights are where I have my binges and my snacking. They are the moments when life comes bubbling to the surface and I will do anything to ignore it. Usually a bunch of food will do.

I made it. With the help of peppermint tea and some coloring and Netflix. But I need a better plan.

Maybe no Netflix after 10. Maybe an after dinner walk. Maybe I keep coloring my damn book. All I know is, Whole30 is going to leave a hole where I used to put all my food feelings. I will now need to find a better way of handling that hole.
