AbiGoLucky Posted October 22, 2014 Share Posted October 22, 2014 Ughhh, I'm over it. Don't get me wrong, I feel GREAT! When I talk about what I'm doing with friends, coworkers, and random strangers in the checkout line at the grocery store who eye my meat-and-veggie-laden basket, I still get really excited about it. I am LOVING the food I'm making, and I'm SO enjoying the creative energy I'm spending in the kitchen. I'm easily able to see this, my first Whole30, as an amazing way that I'm investing in myself, rather than looking at it as all the things I'm depriving myself of. BUT... I am over it! I recognize that I feel and am being whiny and ridiculous, and I'm honestly a little cranky over that fact. Truth time, though--I'm frustrated at having to plan ahead so much and prepare food for myself after a long day, when all I really want to do is stop by my old standby burrito joint for some chips, queso, and a margarita. I am very comfortable in the kitchen, and I'm pretty good about finding ways to save time. I also dearly love cooking; it's a very zen thing for me. I'm Italian, and the kitchen is one of my happy places. So what's my deal??? I am also completely flabbergasted at the fact that I really, really want to have a drink...or two....or three....and I'm not even much of a drinker! It's NEVER been my drug of choice, and here I am salivating over beer I've formerly, happily, and easily refused. One moment, I'm all psyched at how great I feel, thinking that I could keep eating like this even after my 30 days are up and seriously contemplating continuing through the end of November (no, I don't care about Thanksgiving at all). The next, I'm questioning my resolve, thinking that 8 days is an eternity. Is this normal? Any advice from veterans/mods? Please help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
