I started a Whole 60 (or 67) on January 1. I was doing ok until some changes at work made me decide to relocate in the very near future. I'm getting very stressed about the upcoming move and all the plans I have to make. I'm back to not sleeping well. Better sleep was one of my best NSVs! And I also just want to eat all my feelings right now! I am so close to just throwing in the towel. I need some encouragement!
So I’m on my third ever round of Whole30 and have to say, it has been the easiest yet and really the smoothest. I’ve not struggled with cravings as much and finally understand SWYPO fully, so actually following all the rules this time. I have noticed that I’m sleeping much better overall—I typically struggle with major insomnia and wake up constantly throughout the night and that has been way less frequent—but the mornings have been rough. Bearing in mind, I have a very abnormal schedule because I’m self employed/freelance classical musician, so no 9-5..Most days I teach late and get home late and then often dinner is 9, 10 pm, and I may be meal prepping well into the night... It’s felt just about impossible to get up these past few mornings (it was a busy week for sure, but today was calmer and I let myself sleep in and found myself still exhausted at 10 am and ended up sleeping until noon). I’ve been trying to figure out if my sleepiness is just from an unexpected busy week, or something else. It’s really only the getting out of bed part that’s been rough...after breakfast my energy and focus levels have been way higher throughout the day. Yesterday, day 15, felt like I had gotten to tiger blood stage once I was out and about, but one of the most exhausting mornings I can recall in ages. It’s just strange to me since I’ve been sleeping so well! Not always getting 7 hours of sleep, but definitely way better quality than I have in a very long time.
audeich posted a topic in Ladies OnlyAnyone do a Whole30 and be super motivated by the process, and treating your body like a temple, but struggle with the emotional side of it? I have been SUPER emotional, and in a lot of ways 'vacant', if you know what I mean. Just not my peppy jolly self. I have been highly stressed, highly emotional, highly superstitious of my SO, and just realllllly flat emotionally. Feeling so distant, feeling empty.... ALL the good stuff lol. I've felt a little better the last day or so, but still feel so fragile. Can we talk more about the emotional withdrawals we may go through? Anyone ever feel this way for most of their W30? Thank you!!!
