Well, today marks day four of my Whole30 journey, and I gotta admit, I’m already noticing some changes.
I find myself feeling MUCH less bloated, and while I know I’m not supposed to weigh myself during this 30-day journey, I can’t help but feel lighter. I don’t miss the cream and sugar in my coffee nearly as much as I thought, but I’ve always been able to enjoy black coffee.
I can’t really speak to the feeling of being less tired, since I just came off two night shifts in a row, so it may be difficult to gauge. I can say, however, that I lack that overwhelming feeling of fatigue today, so that’s different.
I have had my fair share of temptations. Vanilla cake at work. Mac and cheese at home for toddler. Candy sitting on top of the fridge. I am resolute, and I don’t even feel like cheating. This is how I know I’m ready to stay in it for the long haul. With my eyes so fixated on the prize, the thought of how I would feel if I DID cheat, make it simply unacceptable.
So, do I still miss french fries? Well, fuck yeah.
I’m still human.
