liveit360 Posted October 15, 2013 Share Posted October 15, 2013 I am working on my whole30 but have already figured out I have some pitfalls. I thought I would use this journaling to help me be accountable. I seem to tell myself a lot of lies when it comes to food... I forget my long term goals (in these moments of weakness) and tell myself, you've had a long day, you deserve some sugary/carby treat and some tv.... Or that 'ive been good, I can indulge in something'.... however I usually end up over eating on the junk food then. I'm pretty sensitive to carbs/sugar and then I end up staying up late because I can not sleep! Vicious cycle. I've tested my fasting blood sugar and it was 105 and 110 recently. I need to get this back down and not eating junk at the end of the day will be very helpful in doing this. I'm pretty sure that if I can get beyond these habits I will gain a lot - better sleep = more efficient = happier = healthier losing some weight (about 10lbs) = more comfortable in my clothes = more time (less time trying to figure out what to wear!) = more confidence better blood sugar regulation less aches and maybe less back tension? (I have this most of the time) More likely to plan social events because I am generally feeling great on a regular basis??? (But what will I do to "unwind?" My husband works late shifts and I am at home with a one and a three year old.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
