sjosey77 Posted October 22, 2013 Share Posted October 22, 2013 Ok, I am on day 8 of my first whole 30. So far, it has been like clock work, I am through with the "carb flu" meaning I was no use for anything this weekend due to fatigue. I mean you would have thought I was under 6 G's of gravity since I couldn't drag my lazy self off the couch all weekend. Watched lots of Sex and the City and Trueblood. Thank you HBO. I felt great on day 7 however I am starting the dream stage of weird and crazy things. I have dreamt of people that upset me that made me eat due to feeling bad about myself to people that I love trying to get me to cheat on my whole 30! I was given a Coke accidentally and drank it and felt terrible in my dream! So dreams are one thing..... now however my brain is really fighting dirty. It is now happening while I am awake! What the.... I actually reached out to grab a large bag of M & M's to purchase while in line at the store. First of all, I have never bought a large bag, but my brain tried to act like "oh yeah we eat these all the time" Luckily my sanity came back, and let me tell you, I didn't even know I was grabbing for the bag at first. It wasn't like I wanted to cheat, it was my body being drawn to them like they were nectar from the gods and we were given a chance to sample. I have been learning how to curb the cravings by asking if I was actually hungry and would I eat fish and broccoli as suggested by the Hartwigs. It is working but I have to say that I crave things that I haven't had in years or like um.ever. Corn chips, Dorritos, a Cheeto sandwich, yes you read correctly I was a strange kid. And now M & M's are calling me like no other. I can be working and suddenly out of left field I think about a snack food that I didn't even like as a kid and I want it BADDDDDDD! Funny, if I tried to imagine my favorite dessert I can't remember what it tastes like right now. Like my brain has had selective amnesia. Please tell me that someone out there is having these issues. I knew there would be cravings but I didn't realize that my body would be selling me out so severly when I am feeling so good and haven't cheated at all! I am hoping that my body and I can kiss and make up soon or this is going to be a long couple of weeks. Right now, I really want a poptart........................ sigh.
