camilart Posted September 26, 2012 Share Posted September 26, 2012 Hi everyone, Hubby and I are on Day 26. We have been 100% compliant with the programme from Day 1, which is such an achievement, especially for me. But we are both exhausted. Not only from all the cooking (does anyone else feel they're chained to their kitchen?!?!?) but because we can't sleep. It started in the first week and it's been about three weeks now. We go to bed, toss and turn for a long time before being able to sleep, then wake up in the middle of the night - 2, 3, 4am. Sometimes we manage to go back to sleep after a long time and wake up again before or around 6am. Other times one of us, or both, can't go back to sleep at all. I'm getting very grumpy and struggling to perform at work. My best nights over the past three weeks have given me six hours of sleep, most days I get five, other days (like last night) I get a grand total of four hours of rest. It's definitely not enough for me. I haven't eaten absolutely anything that is not on the shopping list and have stuck to the meal template - a portion of meat wit loads of veggies and some good fat, three times a day. I drink lots of water. Once a day I have a portion of berries. I haven't been overeating nor undereating. I have kept my usual level of exercise - not a lot, but I take stairs, walk to places instead of driving and so on. I have no idea what's going on. I think this eating plan makes all the sense in the world and I would love to continue after my Whole 30, but I can't function without sleep. HELP, please!
