    Kirbz's Whole30 Log

    Food Freedom: Wednesday, January 30 Today was not how I would have liked to eat. I felt "snacky" some time after breakfast but didn't feel like making anything. So I had some peanut butter. Except I ended up probably eating like a half a cup of it. That was not what I would have liked to do. It was not a very conscientious decision. I just didn't want to have to prepare a meal so I figured I should eat a decent amount of it. But then I really, really loved it so I kept eating it. It didn't even feel good to eat that much. But I did it anyway. And then I didn't want to prepare dinne

  2. @Lorna from Canada that's so interesting! Seems like mine are cooling off a bit, but it just makes a lot of sense with the hormones shifting during my whole30 and my body reacting to the shift like that. I've always been a sensitive one when it comes to making dietary changes. I have friends who suffer from them and I also have a lot of empathy for them, too. It's miserable to just have your body light up with heat like that. Thanks for sharing

  3. @lifefoundonarun Imagine my surprise when, 3 years into full menopause, I had my very FIRST major hot flash around Day10!! I get the too hot thing all the time - blankets on and off, ditto sweaters but I had never previously had an actual hot flash until Day 10 - what a shocker! I do think it's not a coincidence that, as I was moving away from sugar burning and into fat burning, this happened. Clearly the hormone shift was coming from somewhere deep within my body. Fortunately, I only had one. I gained such a renewed sense of love and empathy for all those women who suffer from these all

    Don't over think this.

    thanks so much for this post! I am on my first whole30 ever (or whole100 if I have my way) and have started to stress out a little bit today. I was actually upset with myself for having 3 pieces of fruit and cashew butter on two different occasions. did I stick to the rules? yes. could my food choices have been better? yes. did I drink diet coke and have cookies for breakfast like I did a week ago? nope. so that is success. I don't want to get discouraged and worry about how I can cook my veggies/meat/whatever.
