GeekishlyApropos Posted February 12, 2014 Share Posted February 12, 2014 I started my first Whole 30 Monday. I know I'm a first timer, but I have every confidence I won't fail or cheat once. Last week I finished a month agreement with my husband to eat paleo. I never once cheated during that time (can't say the same for the husband). The only real differences between last month and this month is that, while we cut out all cheese, I had my usual cream in my coffee, made snacks with Stevia, and weighed every day. Daily weighing is the one thing I'm having trouble giving up. That's like a thing for me. It's my reward for doing good and losing weight or my reminder that I ate the wrong thing and shouldn't do it again. Monday morning, before my first Whole 30 breakfast, I weighed in just so I know where I started when I get to the end of 30 days, then I put the scale in the other bathroom that I never use. It's crazy that that's the one thing it's killing me to give up. I'm drinking my coffee black. I tried switching to using ghee last week but it's just too rich for my morning coffee. Maybe with some sweetener and cocoa powder as an afternoon treat, but not for my mornings. We have a coffee shop at work and a previous treat on a stressful day would be a large breve, but that was easy to give up since Americanos (without cream) are just as good. Not really a hard thing, but annoying, is consistently eating breakfast and lunch every day. Breakfast and lunch aren't something I usually eat, unless I had made cookies the night before. I typically just eat a good dinner and snack on something if I need to. But, my current breakfast is sliced apples with sunbutter and my lunch is carrot sticks with homemade guacamole and a boiled egg. Before last month I ate what I consider about a 70% paleo diet. I have several food allergies and sensitives so I had all but cut out chemicals and anything that makes me feel funny. I guess my worst offender is dairy and occasionally bread. The husband and I love cheese and cream in our coffee. Half and half, mind you; never that chemical filled creamer nonsense. And the bread is the husband's fault. He would get wheat bread for sandwiches knowing I wasn't supposed to eat wheat but I would occasionally give in and not care how I would feel later. After this last month of eating paleo he's seen that keeping bread in the house is a temptation I too oft give in to and has agreed to not buy it anymore. I'm doing this Whole 30 on my own. The husband obviously eats what I feed him at home, but outside of the house he has more leeway to eat whatever he wants. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
