Ruth M. Pardee Posted October 19, 2012 Share Posted October 19, 2012 I've been thinking about starting a Whole30 for a while now and finally decided to do it about 3 weeks ago. However about 2 1/2 weeks ago I started at a new job, at a cheese and provisions shop that sells delicious amazing food ranging from pastries to sandwiches, prepared veggies, cheese, cured meats, pasta, gelato, etc. As a foodie this is a totally ideal job and I'm really enjoying it, APART FROM THE TEMPTATIONS! Every single day has been a struggle so far to not overindulge. I feel all I think about lately is what I'm eating, how much I'm eating, all the "bad" things I'm eating. But I've been feeling so incredibly sluggish, sleeping huge intervals at a time on my days off, and have certainly put on weight in the 2 1/2 weeks since I've been there. So I'm ready to really start. Finally posting to the forum I think is a good start. I've hit the reset button at the bottom of my Whole30 daily emails I think 4 times already. I'm tired of totally obsessing over trying to resist all these foods, then eventually breaking down and eating some when I'm very tired after a long day, and then telling myself "I'm bad" rather than "I made some bad food decisions today", which leads to more overeating. Does anyone else have this problem of working with food? Facing food everyday that you can't eat, literally preparing sandwiches and selling delicious foods that are totally off limits? If anyone else knows the food world, it's also really hard to sell high quality food and discuss it intelligently with customers if you haven't tried it. Especially with the cheeses, I frankly don't know how I'm going to avoid trying the different cheeses we carry in the shop over the next 30 days. Will a couple small tastes of cheese totally ruin my efforts of doing a Whole30? Because if so I don't know quite literally if it's possible for me to do a Whole30, as I need to be able to discuss these cheeses with customers as a cheesemonger. Literally any suggestions, encouragement, or discussion would be hugely helpful to me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
