Goingitalone Posted April 19, 2014 Share Posted April 19, 2014 Hi. I started Whole 30 back on April 11th so today is my 9th day on program. I am feeling pretty good but still in a slightly vulnerable place. My husband is not on board with me, but is doing something different. I have 2 teens left at home (the others are in college) who are also not on the Whole 30 bandwagon. I'm not sure why it's a wagon, since I'm the only one in the house on it...but whatever. Evil things are cooking in my house today since we agreed about 3 weeks ago to make cookie/brownies as an Easter dessert. Thankfully my daughter baked them so I didn't have to come in contact with any of the ingredients. I can't lie and say I don't want them, because I do. Just the aroma is making my mouth water. Deep down I know I have chosen the Whole 30 for overall good health, but that darn sugar monster is still lurking somewhere close by. I know when we arrive at my sister's tomorrow, the house will be filled with delicious smells that will bring back memories and cause me to second guess why I started Whole 30 before Easter. It will also be filled with 4 of my 5 siblings and their families all shoving food under my nose. It may have been somewhat short-sighted on my part, but I really wanted to start right away (back on the 11th) because I figured then that I would already be 11 days in by the 21st (that's like 1/3 done), and honestly, why wait to start feeling better? Why wait to start solving the problems I have caused by my lousy eating habits? It all sounds so easy when I write it down, but putting it into practice when I am bombarded by my family is making me a little uneasy. I suppose I can go for a walk if it gets to be too much and totally avoid the dessert table. I also already forewarned 2 of my sisters that I am on this program and not to be insulted if I don't eat whatever they've prepared. I've read all the articles about being prepared with my own food in case there's nothing being served that's Whole 30 friendly. I've also decided that I'm not going to cave in. However, I don't always keep my promises to myself where food is concerned. I'm hoping and praying that I survive tomorrow and emerge victorious so I can feel amazing on Monday, knowing I have conquered another battle in the me vs. unhealthy food war.
