teviag Posted July 12, 2014 Share Posted July 12, 2014 Hey y'all! :-) So I'm a deep fried, home grown southern belle from Louisiana, born into a family of amazing cooks, married to a Cajun man who knows how to eat, and if that weren't enough, I'm a preacher's wife who is very involved in all our church events! So, I discovered an acquaintance posting her whole30 food log and thought I'd give it a try...you know...being southern, a church girl, and in a family full of cooks and foodies...makes perfect sense, right?? Truthfully I'm in desperate need to lose weight and I'm tired of feeling sick and having unusual pain that freaks me out (started when I hit my 30's) and I'm trying to help my husband get healthy as well. So I read. And I read some more. And I researched, googled, facebooked, pinterested, and finally said out loud to my husband "I want to do the Whole 30." So I explained what it was and he jumped on board wholeheartedly. Our original start date was June 30. And we went through 3 1/2 days doing well...had the headaches and such but we were doing good- then on that Thursday it hit us. We realized this weekend was about to get crazy! 1. It was July 4th weekend (a big deal here!), 2. It was his sisters birthday and she and their mom were coming to visit, 3. We had a huge church presentation for that Sunday. With all of this going on we realised we weren't ready to go through the weekend trying to maintain our commitment to the plan AND focus on everything else...(plus, I wanted corn on the cob for the 4th!). So we agreed to break the plan for the weekend and restart the next week. And we did! Well...almost. We tried to start Monday and got through most of the day until dinner. I left work starving to death after not having really the ability to plan my meals for the 1st day. So we crashed at one of our favorite restaurants. We tried again the next day and I turned into "vicious cunnid." I was irritable, tired, hungry, bloated, whiney, miserable. And I crashed. Again. And I fussed at myself. And I pulled out my calendar to see the dates for my vacation coming up and figured out when I need to really re-commit. It was the next day. So I re-committed and replanned and re-ignited my determination and passion. I restarted on Wednesday, July 9. I'm 3 days in and going strong. Last night and tonight were hard because of get togethers with friends and tonight was youth social. However I managed to stay on track and enjoy myself as well! I prepared whole 30 compliant snacks for tonight and it was funny how some started asking if they could chow down on my snacks instead of the pizza and junk food! Lol! I'll be doing the same for another event tomorrow- will go back and start my food journal tomorrow also. Really proud that I was able to conquer tonight! Y'all have no idea how hard it was to turn down rice crispy treats and oreos! Well that's all for now! Y'all keep winning! More to come....
