Everything is worth it today

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced this?  I know Whole 30 doesn't encourage "cheat" days, and I did not plan today to be a cheat day, but everything feels "worth it" today.  I ate cold pizza for breakfast, hot fresh pizza for lunch and hummus with pretzels for a snack and a corn muffin.  I ate a whole 30 compliant dinner.  I feel like I'm an adult and decided that I wanted to enjoy some things I haven't had in a while.  I ate till I was satisfied and then stopped.  I don't feel guilty.  I plan to eat healthier tomorrow.  I expect some cravings to possibly pop up tomorrow, but I haven't had adverse reactions to these food groups, so I am enjoying my food today.

This is almost exactly how I was today!

There were donuts @ my work today, and I felt like it was worth it to eat a small container of glazed donut holes. The thing is, this might turn into a slippery slope, but I will try not to let that happen.

I'm assuming you're post-Whole 30 based on the section you posted this in.....in which case, there are no rules for what you're eating and no such thing as cheat days.  Whole30 is about finding out what how foods affect you and your relationship with food, and guilt has no part in it.  If you're doing re-intros and are mixing "types" of food, you may not get as clear a picture about what foods affect you and how.

To me, everything is worth it all the time and that's where the trouble lies. I have been "going with the flow" since ending my whole30 in January, so I feel like I've totally backslid after those first few "worth it" days. If you can keep up with getting back on track each time, that's great! If you find that you struggle, beware going down this path, here there be dragons!
