jillian Posted May 1, 2012 Share Posted May 1, 2012 Today is day 5. I had a surge of energy and enthusiasm during the first 3 days. It was great to feel so darn good. My head was clear and my attitude was positive. Yesterday, day 4, was a bit different. I was tired and felt a little weak and crabby. I had cravings - but nothing too extreme. I was super hungry for dinner and it wasn't even 5pm. So I ate - and ate. Then I had an orange and some salted, toasted coconut chips. The good news: my energy and mood improved, I didn't feel stuffed, and I didn't wake up with a "food hangover". I made peace from the start with the fact that I won't feel great and energized every day during these 30 days. I also resisted the urge to "fix" how I felt by using something a little sweet or comforting to soothe my irritability or sluggishness. I just have to roll with it, surrender to the commitment I made and stick to the program for 30 days. When that little voice pops into my head, justifying a small change to the plan, or judging the merits of the Whole30 guidelines, I simply respond with, "Is it day 30? Well then no judging or changing anything yet." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
