EleanorB Posted November 13, 2014 Share Posted November 13, 2014 I'm not sure I am looking for a place to vent or for encouragement, but... I'm on day 25 and I am so over this. I went to bed early last night as I was so tired. I decided not to cycle to work today as I thought maybe my body needs a bit of a break. I have been 100% compliant for 25 days. I have cooked all my own meals, done cook-up at the weekends, made sure I stuck to the template, minimised snacks etc. My skin is clearer, my clothes looser, my energy levels consistent, cravings are reduced, and a couple of days ago I was trying to convince hubby that we can go paleo for good (he is doing W30 with me). I love the food I have been cooking and I am fairly certain that it's not food boredom (as suggested on the timeline) as I have been really good about introducing new recipes, especially this week as at the weekend I had a bit of a stomach upset and was off food, so tried to mix things up a bit. However, this week I just haven't been feeling super. My training hasn't gone well (tired and lacking power) and as mentioned above I have been feeling a bit wiped out (despite getting 8-9 hours sleep every night). Mentally, I have just had enough. I've had enough of reading labels, of monitoring everything I eat, of cooking and not being able to 'just grab something'. I'm tired of breakfast, lunch and dinner being a time consuming activity to prepare... tired of thinking of the template and whether I have enough fat on my plate. I want to eat without caring! Yesterday afternoon, I threw caution to the wind and just snacked on nuts and nut butter. I didn't care (obviously, I cared later when I felt bloated, but that's by the by). This morning, I had a banana before I left the house. I know I should have had breakfast (which I ate when I got to work), or a boiled egg, but I was a mixture of slightly nauseous/bloated and hungry so wanted something. There is a bake sale on in my office which I am managing to resist without much trouble... but really I want to rebel and eat the cake! Not because it's cake, but just because I'm bored of being good. I know it's only 5 more days, and the days are passing faster now... but still.
