Shimmi79 Posted April 21, 2016 Share Posted April 21, 2016 D A Y 1 3 - Unlucky for some! Well, it's day 13 on my first W30 round and I broke my W30 by drinking a mouthful of orange juice that had sugar in it (bought the one with added sugar instead of the sugar free). Juice? Why? Oral Allergy Syndrome... long technical story short, can't eat it if it is raw, half cooked and definitely can't if it is a banana, carrot, avacado and so on... I told someone in the lunch room that I broke it I am actually really disappointed, I had been doing so well, learning so much and totally looking forward.. I mean, I could have just kept going and not said anything but then...I would know what I did because I had made a real commitment to myself. The technicality of slipping up once...but the rules are pretty clear, slip ups count and I dont think my conscience would let me go on counting each day as though day 13 never happened. But, it's not like the end of the world. I'm disappointed sure, but not all depressed about it. It just means I need to be a bit more vigilant with reading labels and also to remember that this IS my first rodeo, I am still figuring it all out because I am learning new things like 'how do I improve the taste of this sauce without using sugar?' or 'what do these herbs do?'. Already I have learnt a lot, have read (almost!) all of the labels, started buying meat that doesn't have added hormones and learning more about what is actually in the food I stick in my body and what it does. For the first time in....ever, I feel like I can actually last through to the next meal. If I feel like I can't, or I have a particularly active day, I know that if I start getting hungry, that my last meal could have had a bit more in it to get me through and it then means I can adjust it. If I make TOO much food, awesome, my next meal is half made already, uh.... winning! The other thing is, though my goal is to BE WELL, and I broke my first W30... I just need to try again tomorrow. I can keep going today as per W30, but start the count again tomorrow. It doesn't mean I binge today (because an Apple Turnover with Fresh Cream would really kill it right now and I've broken it anyway so let's do this!) it means I keep going with today and see the day out how I had started - doing my W30 thang - and I start the count again tomorrow taking today's lesson with me and see this thing through because really... I would only be cheating myself and if I wouldn't let a stranger cheat me out of my hard work, why would I let myself, right? So here is to take two in my the W30 rodeo! Now I know what not to do and what adjustments I need to make. Yeeee Haaaaa!! PS: at least I wont have to go through the Day 2 I had at the start of this one.... oh man.... i shouldn't have eaten all the things before I started W30.
