Good day! I am on day 11 today (first Whole 30) and I understand why this is marked as the hardest day.
For me, the food was not really a challenge so far, I enjoy all the amazing recipe that the books have to offer. I love having a fridge full of fresh ingredients to pick from everyday, and I LOVE having a clean pantry! What I find hard, beside missing my glass of red wine at dinner, is the lack of sleeping, the hangover feeling, and my bad performance through my workouts.
The first few days, I felt pumped and energize as soon as I would open my eyes, before the alarm went off. But since day 7, I spend my whole nights turning, I can't get out of bed in the morning, I wake up cranky, with a headache. The 5km I used to breeze through and enjoy in the morning now feels like I weight a 1000 kilos. And lifting as heavy as I am used to is not really possible either. I can't wait for the tiger blood that, according to my calendar, should be just around the corner!
Tell me it is coming! :-)
