Tarcy33 Posted April 23, 2014 Share Posted April 23, 2014 I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one starting a new (my 2nd) round of Whole30 the day after Easter! I finished my first W30 just a couple weeks ago, and found reintro a little daunting. After feeling so great I didn't want to go backwards, so instead of a true reintro of different foods, I would have a bit here & a bit there. Until - that emergency pizza when we were hanging with friends & there was nothing else & nothing to get creative with...and not just one teaser piece, but two because, well, slippery slope....sure, I'll have a delicious IPA to go with that. And I shrugged, said hey, no guilt - it was damn good! And the sluggishness the next day seemed a reasonable (not punitive) price to pay for the indulgence. And was all I needed to keep things happily in check. Until that freakin Easter Bunny dropped off a bag of jelly beans, along with other little Easter delectables. But chocolate treats & marshmallow freaks are just shadows next to jellybeans. To say I can't resist jellybeans is a cop out because that would make it sound like there is some attempt at restraint, and restraint doesn't even enter the picture. I'm making this all sound worse than the reality, but yes - I love jellybeans and did not deny myself - and this sugar hangover is still hanging on two days later. I didn't log my W30 days before, but this time around I think it will help me find & notice & define my habits & thought processes along the way. First time around was easy - give me rules, structure, lists of compliant vs noncompliant & I'm happy & secure (bordering on obsessive - anyone?). But this break and the informed decision to give it another go, along with little shifts in motivation for a second round make it seem more important to me to be an intentional observer in addition to a rule-abiding zealot. So. Day 1 M1 - Bullet Proof Coffee (1Tbsp OMGhee 1Tbsp MCT oil); ground beef spinach frittata (thank you, StupidEasy Paleo!); raw spinach; clementine M2 - salad of spinach, red bell pepper, carrots, 2 hard boiled eggs, olive oil & balsamic; banana & almond butter M3 - slow cooker chicken yellow curry (thanks again StupidEasy Paleo!) Would normally not want two meals of eggs in a row, but being economical & quick. Also, already missing avocado and sweet potatoes - first time around not a day went by without one or the other or both... Craving sweets. Go figure. Trying to stay on top of cues - hunger (or bored noshy, or distracted, or anxious) - and the old forgotten afternoon slump. Happily I know I will conquer these devils soon.
