HealingWithin Posted March 18, 2014 Share Posted March 18, 2014 Hello! I started my W30 yesterday, 3/17/14. I have attempted a W30 a number of times in the past and have never made it past day 10 or 11. I have also tried just eating W30 style and that hasn't gone as well as I'd hoped. I have recently been looking a even deeper layers (long history) of my relationship to food and realized that the whole day 10 or 11 thing is 100% mental. So, I am planning to be super mindful of that when the chocolate starts calling and I start telling myself that this is too hard. I have created so many things in my life, I know I can create this if I really put my mind to it. I am also willing for this to take more than 30 days. I want to establish my goals: ::: reconnect with my physical body - the past year and a half have been super intense for me emotionally (I found out that my Dad isn't actually my dad, I am 37). Somewhere along the way, I lost touch with my body, what I was eating, and how I was moving. A few years ago, I would have sworn to you that I had all that figured out but I can now see that I am being invited into a whole new layer of awareness for myself with all this. So, awareness it will be. ::: resolve some issues I have faced with past attempts. 1) waking up hungry in the middle of the night 2) waiting way too long to eat and then eating outside of the template 3) giving up on day 10 or 11 ::: Be totally honest with myself about the emotional and mental components around eating ::: Drink half my body weight in ounces each day. I took a starting weight yesterday (Day 1) and will use that amount as the amount for the W30 as I am not going to weigh again until Day 31. ::: Constipation. This is an ongoing issue that in past attempts gets worse. I want to figure out what is up there. Food Log for yesterday: Day 1 9 AM 3 eggs (lard), kale + carrots + onions (lard), sugar free breakfast sausage, 2 dried plums, cold brew with coconut milk 2 PM lamb, mixed vegetables, spices, homemade mayo 7:30 PM banana 8:30 PM salmon, sweet potato with coconut butter, zoodles with garlic (lard) I ended up editing some of my work starting at 4:45 and then worked later than I intended and ate the banana while cooking dinner. Am trying to be more mindful of this because it is a recurring problem. Today, I am setting timers. Feels kind of lame to do that but I am all for doing whatever works. With that, I am going to make lunch. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
