    Day 22 and Raging PMS

    Oh yeah, I've been eating sweet potato but didn't have any yesterday. I'll make sure to get some today! Thanks Karen! Carla - Did you stop getting PMS after a few months on whole30? How long did it take?

    Day 22 and Raging PMS

    Thanks Carla! I go back and forth on whether I want to keep this up after the 30 days. I definitely think I am eating better, I just wish I had something really obvious to prove it. My dad is doing it with me and says I just need to wait until the last day before I make any decisions, so I'm trying to do that. Stupid hormones are getting in my way. I cut back on the nuts last week but I think because of the PMS I've been hungrier and snackier than normal so I've been grabbing at them this week. I quit eggs this week because of the bloating, AIP related issues. I guess I'll lay off the nuts the rest of the time and see if that helps. It's really hard to quit them when they are the only treat to me. That wine comment was funny, I've got 3 bottles lined up at home waiting for next Saturday I won't drink them all that day, I don't think... Congrats on your 35lb drop! That's fantastic!

    Day 22 and Raging PMS

    I might sound a little nuts writing this so please bear with me but I'm feeling a little like a lunatic today... I'm on Day 22, and my period will be here in 5 days. Sadly I'll be on my period when I'm supposed to weigh in and take measurements. So I can't see the sun thru the clouds at the moment. My hormones are everywhere, in 36 years I've never felt so out of control. What the hell is going on? I've had good and bad days during this journey. My goal has been weight loss and cleaning up my diet because I have psoriasis and occasional IBS. So for the first time in my life I've been sticking to something and keeping focused. The thing is, I do not feel like I'm really getting rewarded for it. * My clothes don't fit better, i still feel bloated * PMS is out of control and I feel like I could snap at any moment * My boyfriend hasn't changed sh*t with his diet and has lost 9lbs since I started Whole30 and you can actually see the difference * I sleep better most of the time but I've still had insomnia at times * I miss my glass of wine * I'm so tired of cooking - and I love to cook * NOT a damn person has said a thing about if I look different Ok some positives * I don't feel physically dependent on food * My skin feels smooth and cleared up Am I supposed to be feeling this at day 22? Where the hell did my tiger blood go? I only had that a whole 48 hours. Will it come back? Someone give me a bagel (just kidding, I'll wait till after the 30 days for that) Example Food - everything cooked in ghee, coconut oil or EVOO * breakfast - meat (chicken mostly), avocado, veg * lunch - meat, cauliflower fried rice *dinner - meat, veg, avocado *snack - nuts, fruit- about 3x per week - I've been getting hungry at work Example Exercise * T25 4x per week Is anyone else feeling this way?
