Swim Bike Mom Posted August 9, 2013 Share Posted August 9, 2013 DAY ONE Well, I went out with a bang on Sunday night, getting ready to start the Eight to Great Challenge with Whole30 as my choice of plan. I mean, really really elevated my food status to Louis C.K. levels. "I don't stop eating when I'm full. The meal is not over when I am full. The meal is over when I hate myself." Mission accomplished. I woke up on Monday morning feeling gross and couldn't even button my pants. So I wore a dress. [Next stop, mumu. If I don't make this healthy lifestyle an actual lifestyle.] LOG No workout today Breakfast: 8:15 a.m. - 1 organic chicken sausage, 2 whole eggs, kale, red peppers, 3/4 avocado. I was not hungry until almost 1:00. Awesome. Lunch: 1:00 - 1 organic chicken breast, kale, onions, lemon juice, clementine, two handfuls of cashews. Brought 2 eggs, but they were waaaaay under-boiled. So scrapped that. About 30 minutes later, I was hungry. Need more protein, I guess. Which would have been fine if I had the eggs. Afternoon, around 4:15 I started feeling yucky with some serious cravings for sugar and a desire for wine. Kind of light-headed too. Also, I have been perched at my desk all days and stood up like twice. Terrible. Dinner: Starving by dinner. 6:45pm. The Expert cooked some awesome fish, asparagus, salad with dates and other yummies. Avocado. And I used too much olive oil on all. But two hours later, I am not hungry (I'm mentally starving...but not physically). I packed up my pre-workout snack and post-workout recovery food, my gym bag, got the kids in the bed, and now it's 9:00, and I'm already behind the eightball, because I'm supposed to turn off my electronics by 9:00 and get in bed by 10:00 and now I "need" to watch Dexter. Plus, we are suing the pants off our landlord tomorrow and I'm doing everything in my power to not think about it, because that might result in a lot of mindless eating.
