Amerr Posted June 1, 2015 Share Posted June 1, 2015 Today is Day 4 of my first Whole30 experience. I'm incredibly excited to be on the journey, but I just had my first big freak out moment. At the moment, my husband and I live with my parents - who are notorious for overindulging. They've spent the last few days creating a feast of treats (cakes, homemade breads, cream cheese dips, etc.) and begging us to "just try a bite." It's been difficult - but I've stayed determined and politely refused. Last night, my dad grilled some plain ole burgers. He added a little salt and a little pepper and threw them on the grill. When my husband started prepping some for breakfast this morning (topped with sautéed kale and a fried egg - seriously YUM), I had a full blown meltdown. I have never known my dad to sabotage my healthy choices or to sneak secret ingredients in his food or to lie about what he's made or to add anything non-paleo to his burgers. So I realize this is totally irrational. But I struggled to eat - or enjoy - my meal (which I did end up eating). I'm struggling to feel okay with this. I don't know if it's just anxiety over someone else preparing part of my meal that I'm not in control of, or what. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Is this normal??
