Sari Posted December 8, 2015 Share Posted December 8, 2015 I love a good alliteration. Nobody may read this, because I haven't been active nor have I logged either of my two Whole30's on here (only joined afterwards). But I feel some serious need for accountability. With the holidays approaching, I haven't had a fully compliant day in what feels like forever. Except for one time at an Indian restaurant on a study trip, I haven't ventured into the really dangerous territories of grains and other non-compliant food groups, BUT sugar - my downfall and the hardest thing for me to eat in moderation - has crept back into my diet and the amounts are starting to scare me. First it was the tiny bit of honey in the paleo porridge (I know I know, totally SWYPO ) which I felt incredibly guilty for. But at this point I'm baking all sorts of grain-free cookies to "try out" for Christmas and gulfing them down within two to three days without any control whatsoever. I'll tell myself "Just one more, then I'll stop". Ten minutes later I'm raiding the fridge looking for the rest of them. Add to that the fact that I've had a cold this past week (feeling crappy makes my cravings worse) and you've got a recipe for a disaster, I actually have to brush my teeth several hours before I plan on going to bed just so I can stop eating junk (paleo junk, but still sugar). So I'll cut this short. This is probably more for myself and the bad feeling in the back of my mind when I do something I swore I wouldn't after telling someone else about it. This thread is gonna be my "someone else". With Christmas approaching, I'm not ready for another Whole30, but first thing in the morning, I'm throwing away the rest of these cookies and starting a Whole7. I have a chicken dish cooking up in the crockpot anyway. I'm terrible at journaling AND terribly busy at the moment but I'll make an effort of logging my meals starting tomorrow. We'll see how that goes. Bye bye sugar. It just wasn't meant to be. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
