yescrystal Posted October 6, 2012 Share Posted October 6, 2012 Okay so I read ISWF, loved it, my mind was blown, and decided to begin the Whole30 October 1. Day 1 was great, easy, no problems. Days 2 and 3 I was super tired, irritatable, and just not happy. Days 4 and 5 (today), I also felt great (aside from some digestive issues, which I assume/hope will go away after a week or two). Wellll. My usual Friday night consists of wine, tv, reading, and chocolate. Clearly the wine and chocolate are out of the question. Except that a coworker bought me a Starbucks cake pop today which I'm sure I subconsciously forgot to throw away after I arrived home, because after a delicious dinner I fell into the "wo is me" mentality because I can't have wine and dove right into the cake pop. Fail. I don't feel that bad about it, but I feel like I progressing so well and now tomorrow I will be starting over. I have at least learned that I need to manage situations like the cake pop today better in the future instead of keeping something because I feel bad about declining. After all, I shouldn't care about what others think about what I do or don't eat; it's about my health, not their feelings, right? Anyways. Tomorrow is a new day, and I am even more motivated than before to get through any obstacles that may come up. I bought the book for my mom who is in a different state than I (I'm in Cali, she is in Texas) and she is going to try to do it with me after she reads ISWF. That should help keep me going also. So here's to a second attempt (which I WILL get through) and to October 6! IT"S ON. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
