MommaMawby Posted January 21, 2013 Share Posted January 21, 2013 So I have been at this since the 1st. So I am 21 days in but with two "falls from grace" I am really on day 6. Ugh, so depressing when you write it out that way. I am starting to feel very "meh" about the whole thing. Is that normal? I mean last week I was riding high and now this week it is like I could care less. I am still eating compliant but the novelty has worn off - which I am sure is normal. Since my restart 6 days ago I have been feeling very ambivalent towards the whole thing then, to top things off, I slipped and fell on the ice last week and stretched my LCL and bruised a bone - long and short of it is that my workouts are pretty much torched for a few weeks, at least until I can handle things like getting off a toilet without crying. So here I am. Debating what to do. I feel like I started this "redo" with the entirely wrong attitude and therefore don't feel like I am truly reaping the benefits of it, the physical benefits are there I am just not really appreciating them. I also really feel like the tumble took the wind out my sails so to speak. Should I continue on with this or simply scratch my "First Whole 30" and start a second one fresh tomorrow? It seems sorta silly but in my mind the idea of just saying, "hey, you know what, i was unsuccessful the first go round but I learned a few things." Then start of with a clean slate rather then continue with the third crack at my first one. Sorta a "six of one/half dozen of the other" type situation I know. It isn't about the food, or the lack of certain foods, at this point if I were to never have dairy again I would probably be quite content. Grains have vanished from our house with very little fan fare and aren't really missed either. I am not planning a huge "oh my god, I am free" gorging of non-compliant food either, I have a delicious roast, asparagus, and spaghetti squash on tap for this evening. I just really feel like I would benefit more from a complete fresh start. Am I the only one that feels this way? Am I just trying to get back the "glory" of the first few weeks of my Whole30? Ughh, I just don't know. I really feel like I am on the verge of floundering if I continue on. I think I am in mourning ... I just don't know what for, my motivation maybe?
