Myra Posted April 30, 2014 Share Posted April 30, 2014 So, I had all good intentions when I started my first Whole 30 (and actually wanted to make it a Whole100) on April 1st. It all went well for two weeks. Then, I worked my second job on the weekend and drove around a lot and back and forth between the client's house (where I was pet sitting) and my own home (to take care of my own pets). So I didn't eat much. And then I craved sourdough bread. And I bought it. The entire weekend and Monday all I ate was bread with butter. Oh, and an entire bar of chocolate. I didn't even feel bad about it. I went back on the wagon the next day, but then by the next weekend, it was hard again for me. So since then I've been totally off the wagon and eat chocolate like a maniac. And bread with butter! I haven't eaten bread in ages as I'm not supposed to eat gluten due to an intolerance. The first week (despite having had a headache for the first four days straight) I had so much energy. That even improved during the second week. And then - BANG! - willpower gone, boredom here - and I ate crap. The plan is to get back on track May 1st and try it again. I'm so busy with three jobs and school right now that it's hard to pre-cook and make a meal plan, but I have to manage to get this done - AND STICK TO IT!!! Sometimes I leave my tupperware with the good stuff in our office fridge and still by crap at the grocery store next door or in our cafeteria. I looked up meetings in my city of Overeaters Anonymus, but the more I read about it, the more I'm convinced it's not for me. I attended one meeting once years ago and it didn't feel right for me. Maybe I'll give it another try. Okay, just wanted to share my failure. I hope everybody else is doing much better. If anybody has a tip for me how to stay on track, I'd be very grateful. I'm not very happy with my main job, but cannot change it at the moment. I feel once that is gone, I can breathe again and be happier, but that might take a while, and I cannot eat crap until then.
