whole30, day 2

Monday, October 16, 2017

SO. MUCH. PREP. WORK.

My second day on whole30 has been just tiring. I'm feeling fatigued from sugar and carb withdrawal. I work with preschoolers and am beat when I come home from work.

I came home today to a sink full of dirty dishes and dinner to be made. I had a chicken drumstick to get me through until dinner was ready. I was mega-hangry and mad that I couldn't do my usual: sit on the couch shoving cheez doodles and chocolate down my gullet.

I realized if I wanted to not have this happen to me again I would have to have my meat ready for all my week's meals and I felt so crestfallen. Ugh. I prepped a pork roast for Thursday. And made paleo mayo. And made my lunch for the week.

THEN, I find out close friends of ours, this week of all weeks, invited us over on Thursday to celebrate their birthday. I NEVER get invited anywhere. This week, the week I'm starting whole30?? I didn't see it coming. They already told us they're making lasagna. I would bring my own dish and feed on that but I feel like doing this would be rude.

I'm not loving this experience so far but I want to focus more on the health benefits I'll be gaining and plan on reading and re-reading chapters in "It Starts with Food" by Melissa Hartwig. I like comfort. I like being comfortable. But that's not how life is, right? We have to be uncomfortable to grow.

I think I might have the lasagna at my friend's house and add a day to my whole30. I need the perspective and encouragement from the book!

2 days down, 28 to go!
